Good Riddance to Letterman
By Daniel Greenfield Wednesday, May 27, 2015
David Letterman’s departure isn’t the end of an era. The era of late night talk shows ended a while back.
In Johnny Carson’s final week in the nineties, he played to an audience of twenty million. Lately, Letterman has been lucky to get 2 million. His final shows have played to around 5 million viewers.
Why Does Liberal Rag Salon.com Hate Our Soldiers? Because They Take Money From Welfare Spending
By Warner Todd Huston Tuesday, May 26, 2015
On this Memorial Day, the anti-American cretins at Salon.com have proclaimed our soldiers to be “dangerous” to the nation. Why? Because spending money on our military takes money away from welfare budgets. And they are serious.
Hillary finally answers some questions - badly. CBS calls her out for dodging
By Robert Laurie Thursday, May 21, 2015
If you’re the kind of person who thinks Hillary Clinton is trying desperately to avoid questions from the media, you owe her an apology. She’s nothing if not completely forthcoming. Despite the fact that she went almost a month without answering a single media inquiry, Mrs. Clinton is an open book - and she’s eager to show off her love of complete and utter transparency.
CBC provides new definition for balanced reporting
By Diane Weber Bederman Monday, May 18, 2015
Last March I once again contacted the CBC regarding their bias-this time against the Harper Government’s response to the Supreme Court ruling allowing the right to wear the niqab during the citizenship ceremony. The Harper government is appealing the decision. For two days CBC Metro Morning with Matt Galloway pushed back against the government with interviews from people who are in favour of wearing the niqab.
Stephanopoulos Fiasco is Par for the Course
By Roger Aronoff Monday, May 18, 2015
What is surprising about the latest George Stephanopoulos controversy is that most of the media are treating it as something unusual rather than an acknowledgement of a problem that’s been plaguing the media for decades. We at Accuracy in Media are happy to see this issue receive the scrutiny it deserves. However, anyone convinced that Stephanopoulos’s ongoing political conflict of interest and failure to disclose it to his viewers is the exception, not the rule, hasn’t been paying attention to a long history of media corruption.
“Gorgeous” George—Unfit for National News!
By John Lillpop Friday, May 15, 2015
For far too long and despite obvious evidence to the contrary, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos has argued vociferously that mainstream media does not reflect a liberal bias.
According to the Stephanopoulos fantasy, network news, including that aired by ABC, is presented in a fair, objective manner based solely on news worthiness. There is, he claims, no evidence that favoritism or censorship is used to slant news in support of liberal politicians and issues.
Stunner: ABC hires partisan propagandist to work as journalist, and . . .
By Dan Calabrese Friday, May 15, 2015
So let me see if I have this straight. ABC News hires a guy whose primary experience is as a mouthpiece for the Clintons, and assigns him to report news objectively and without bias. Some time later we discover, to our horror, that he is contributing money (and more than he first admitted) to the slush-fund-disguised-as-a-charity that these very same Clintons use to line their pockets while shaking down foreign governments, making speeches for upwards of half-a-million dollars, and demanding the “toppling” of the damnable “1 percent.”
And because of this revelation, we now face the heartbreaking possibility that George Stephanopoulos is not an objective journalist but is, in fact, a Clinton bootlicker?
What bias? Stephanopoulos defends Clinton Foundation on show, fails to mention he’s a major donor
By Robert Laurie Thursday, May 14, 2015
On April 26, ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos interviewed “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer. During their back and forth, Stephanopoulos repeatedly pressed his guess about the lack of a “smoking gun” which would prove an inarguable link between Clinton Foundation donations and favors from Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
Media Attack “Clinton Cash” Message Not Facts
By Guest Column Thursday, May 14, 2015
Criticisms of Clinton Cash follow a common template, one which emphasizes that Peter Schweizer’s book is really an unsuccessful partisan attack on the Clinton family. Some of these critiques point to errors within the book while asserting that the rest of it has leaps of logic amounting to a false account full of speculation and innuendo. For good measure, some journalists throw in background information about the author that emphasizes Schweizer’s conservative ties, as if that should disqualify his analysis entirely.
Moron so-called ‘fact checkers’ at Politifact humiliate themselves with Fiorina item
By Dan Calabrese Tuesday, May 12, 2015
Do you know what a fact is? That’s easy. Of course you do. Fact is an objective truth not subject to interpretation or dispute. Water is liquid if it’s above 32 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s a fact. Thursday comes after Wednesday. That’s a fact. The address of the White House is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
People who deal in actual facts can recognize that an assertion is either fact-based or its not. It’s really not that complicated. That’s for normal people who understand what a fact is. But there are other kinds of people, those who don’t know what a fact is because they are apparently not intelligent enough to understand such a straightforward concept. Ironically, and tragically, many of these people have found work doing something that calls itself - but patently is not - “fact checking.”
Anjem Choudary should have his own television show
By Arthur Weinreb Sunday, May 10, 2015
Radical UK imam, Anjem Choudary, made an appearance on Hannity last week. Choudary appeared alongside Pamela Geller to discuss the latter’s cartoon contest held in Garland, Texas, that saw two noble practitioners of the religion of peace shot dead by a Garland traffic cop. A security guard was shot and received minor wounds in what was by those able to understand what is going on in the world, a terrorist attack.
Many people do not think Hannity should have the imam on his show, arguing Choudary should not be given an opportunity to express his radical views. These appearances might, so it is said, lead to some people watching becoming radicalized.
Media Hits New Low

“Offensive Art” and Double Standards at the NY Times
By Arnold Ahlert Friday, May 8, 2015
When it comes to rank hypocrisy and leftist-inspired double-standards, there’s nothing quite like the New York Times. Despite the reality two Islamist gunmen would have undoubtedly killed as many participants attending Pamela Geller’s “Draw Mohammed” contest in Garland, TX, as possible, the so-called paper of record chose to excoriate those exercising their freedom of speech.
Media confuses ‘more probable than not’ with finding of fact in Tom Brady investigation
By Dan Calabrese Thursday, May 7, 2015
If you paid attention to the shrieking of the sports media over the past 24 hours, you might have the idea that a thorough investigation uncovered facts that proved Tom Brady of the New England Patriots was responsible for having footballs deflated in violation of NFL rules prior to January’s AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts.
