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.
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.

“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.
VIDEO: Carly Fiorina doesn’t back down as Katie Couric tries to shame her for criticizing Hillary
By Dan Calabrese Thursday, May 7, 2015
I’m liking Carly Fiorina more and more. Of course, one of the quickest ways to win my respect is to stand up to dopey media presumptions and shove them back in the faces of blowhard interviewers.
Liberal Media Work With Jihadists
By Cliff Kincaid Wednesday, May 6, 2015
It’s strange that the liberals in the media who always complain about Joe McCarthy once having a list of communists in government are so quick to cite the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of so-called right-wing extremists or “haters.”
Alysin Camerota will never be ready for prime time
By Arthur Weinreb Wednesday, May 6, 2015
In its infancy, television was commonly referred to as “the boob tube,” and it was fashionable for the elites to deny they ever watched it. How television was viewed changed when John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. Decades before 24/7 cable news networks emerged, the big three US networks, CBS, NBC, and ABC dropped their regularly scheduled programming and provided continuous coverage of the aftermath of the assassination for four days. Those who were watching at the right time were able to see Jack Ruby shoot Lee Harvey Oswald to death in real time. Viewers knew they were watching history in the making. Television became more respectable.
Forward to Extinction
By Tabitha Korol Tuesday, May 5, 2015
Jay Michaelson, contributing editor to the Forward, holds a position of unearned, unwarranted, and undeserved influence. Although he writes for a Jewish newspaper, he fails to inform his readers that Islam is the enemy of Israel, the Jewish people and, in fact, all of America, and makes judgments that work against their survival.
