Little Trust for the ‘Democracy-Saving’ Media

Written by Tim Graham

The national media consider themselves essential in educating the electorate, so what happens when the electorate does not consider them a trustworthy guardian of democracy?

The Associated Press and the American Press Institute just released a poll on the 2024 election and found only 14% of their sample expressed “a great deal of confidence in election-related information they receive from national sources.” By contrast, 46% have little or no confidence at all in the information they receive from national news organizations.… Continue Reading

RFK Jr. Is Right About Joe Biden

Written by David Harsanyi

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. can be an unhinged leftist and crackpot, but he also happens to be correct about President Joe Biden‘s attacks on constitutional order, particularly free expression.

Speaking to an incredulous Erin Burnett on CNN this week, Kennedy argued that Biden was a bigger threat to “democracy” than Donald Trump, a position that clashes with the media’s entire 2024 campaign messaging.

In a more decent world, we’d be debating which presidential candidate was better at upholding the constitutional order, rather than which one was worse.… Continue Reading

Pro-Biden Newsrooms Debate Censoring Trump

Written by Tim Graham

Donald Trump’s early primary victories have started the “newsroom debates” again. Associated Press media reporter David Bauder penned a story headlined “Trump’s live appearances pose a riddle that news executives still haven’t solved.

So, when a newsworthy event happens — like Trump’s victory speech after the New Hampshire primary — the pro-Biden networks worry “Trump will make false statements that are difficult, if not impossible, to correct in real time — or go completely off script with something entirely unexpected.”… Continue Reading

The Elites’ Extinction Agenda: Getting Rid of The Children

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

Recently, Jeffrey Clark, an associate editor for Fox News Digital, wrote an important column summarizing the growing call in media circles for “humans to go extinct.” In his article, Mr. Clark cites the oft-repeated refrain from cultural talking heads who now argue that “science proves kids are bad for the earth and that morality suggests we stop having them.”

Examples include Ginger Zee, a meteorologist on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” who recounted in December the tension she felt in becoming pregnant with her second child because some in her family didn’t think she would “do that again,” for the sake of the planet.… Continue Reading

U.S. Speaker Mike Johnson Actually Believes in 5,000 Years of Moral Clarity and Common Sense

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

On Friday, Oct. 27, just hours after U.S. Representative Mike Johnson (D-LA) was elected speaker of the U.S. House by the unanimous vote of the Republican majority, CNN reporters Andrew Kaczynski and Allison Gordon posted the following: “Speaker of the House Mike Johnson has a history of harsh anti-gay language.”

They went on to cite several editorials Mr. Johnson wrote in the early 2000s, when he served as a constitutional attorney for the Alliance Defending Freedom, a coalition of lawyers that has more religious freedom victories before the U.S.… Continue Reading

Left-Wing Media Push Hamas Propaganda

Written by David E. Smith

Barely a week after the horrific October 7th Hamas terror attacks on Israel, we noticed CNN’s coverage starting to turn foul. We then noticed it on the PBS News Hour as well. Their coverage drifted away from the abhorrent murders, rapes and kidnappings committed by Islamic jihadists, to a more sympathetic tone for the people of Palestine and the terrorists that they unequivocally support. ABC, CBS, and NBC “news” programs quickly followed suit.… Continue Reading

Are Walls Closing in on the Bidens?

Written by Tim Graham

Everyone paying attention to the latest revelations about Hunter Biden and his energetically supportive father knows that journalists and Republican officials have opened a vein, or “the walls are closing in.” Even so, the leftist media are trying to report as little of this damaging scandal material as they possibly can.

We can scarcely imagine the anxious political chatter inside pro-Biden newsrooms, but let’s imagine it sounds something like Jen Psaki‘s MSNBC show.… Continue Reading

Scandal Questions Go Down the Latrine Jean-Pierre

Written by Tim Graham

White House briefings in the Biden years are often sleepy meetings compared to the Jim Acosta shriek-fests we remember under Trump. President Joe Biden pledged he would be so much nicer to the press corps. He promised to “bring transparency and truth back to the government.” But the press is much nicer to him than the other way around.

Biden provides far less access than Trump did. He avoids press conferences and one-on-one interviews like the plague.… Continue Reading

GOP’s Moral Cowardice Leads to More Concessions, Acceptance of Dems’ Unthinkable Agenda

Written by Robert Knight

What is it with Republicans who try to fight the culture war with one hand tied behind their backs? They shift to a defensive crouch even when their position is clearly right.

G.K. Chesterton mocked this tendency years ago. Some politicians, he wrote, would loudly oppose the deadly mugging of a grandmother in a city park not because it’s immoral but because it would be a “waste of a perfectly good grandmother.”… Continue Reading

CNN’s Mostly False Take on Biden’s Stance on Abortion

Written by Tim Graham

As CNN looks for a new leader, former CNN host Brian Stelter proposed this as the most important question: “What should an anchor do when a guest says something untrue?”

The public could turn this question around: “What should a politician do when a CNN host says something untrue?” The Stelters of this world cannot imagine anyone at CNN would ever say anything false. They arrogantly presume they always defend the “truth.”… Continue Reading
