by Steve MacDonald June 23, 2018

Inspector General’s Report: Let There Be Bias

by Steve MacDonald June 18, 2018

I doubt we will ever get around to plumbing the minutia inside IG Horowitz 568 page report on how the FBI handled the Clinton Email Investigation or their pivot to Trump. But we can pull and explore some of the bits the media is more likely to ignore, gloss over, or spin. Like this.

When Progressives Wax ‘Poetic’ About ‘Religious Bigotry’ …

by Steve MacDonald June 9, 2018

The Masterpiece Cakeshop ruling continues to bear fruit. David French, writing at National Review Online, has provided several pieces that emphasize the upside of the decision, here, here, and here.

New York Times “Runs Out Of Words” to Describe May Jobs Numbers

by Steve MacDonald June 2, 2018

I couldn’t tell you if the cable networks or the alphabets are in on this but The New York Times offered up a glowing report of May’s job’s numbers the same day I wrote this. So here’s the credit where it is due. The real question in analyzing the May jobs numbers released Friday is whether there […]

So Google says that Planned Parenthood is a PRO-life organization

by Skip March 4, 2018

This is what Google reports for a search for “pro-life organizations”.  Note who is Number 1 – yeah, sure Google. I replicated this search tonite at 8:27pm.  With it doing 328,348 child killing abortions in 2015-2016, how COULD Planned Parenthood ever be considered a “pro-life” organization?  This can’t be a mistake – it has to be deliberate […]

Nice to see the Liberal/Progressive bias from Google on a sitting US Senator

by Skip January 18, 2018

More on that stuff about Google “fact checking” sites but this time on a Republican US Senator – would they do this to, say, Dick Durban (D-IL) or Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)?  Hardly: Google refers to Republican senator David Perdue as ‘lying, unscrupulous politician. Wikipedia was cited as the source. It appears that the senator’s Wikipedia page […]

The Obligatory Emmy post: I guess they’re not getting the picture yet

by Skip September 19, 2017

And is there any wonder why the headline exists? Total Irrelevance: Trump-Hating Emmys Hit All-Time Ratings Low …Instead of being the lowest-watched Emmys in its 69-year history, Sunday night’s telecast might be able to squeak into the second-lowest. As of now, though, it looks as though all that promised Trump-hating resulted in a record low, […]

Million Dollar National Science Foundation Grant Funds New Anti-Bias Guide from UNH

by Steve MacDonald July 27, 2017

Two years ago, in July of 2015, the University of New Hampshire made national news over a Bais-Free Language guide which suggested, among other things, that the word ‘American’ is problematic. The media firestorm produced a clarification from UNH President Mark Huddleston and a defense of free speech, a retraction of the guide from university servers, and […]

The Concord Monitor Reminds US What Taxation Means To Progressives

by Steve MacDonald April 17, 2017

The Progressive view care of the Concord Monitor. The state still doesn’t know the full impact of a recent cut in business tax rates, but the Legislature is already considering another reduction.

2013 Syrian Chemical Attack Survivor Thanks Trump…

by Scott Morales April 9, 2017

.. and the CNN host, Brooke Baldwin, tries her best to deflect that by showing a clip of Wobbles Clinton squawking negatively about Trump to her sycophants. But the survivor calls her out: “With all due respect…I didn’t see each and every person who was demonstrating after the travel ban, I didn’t see you three […]

“Hey, hey, Ho, ho, Donald Trump has got to go!” – the Media

Well THAT didn’t take long, did it?  Trump’s honeymoon, if one could call it that, last all of, oh, six seconds with the mainstream media.  I’ve been watching this stuff since I turned 18 (and very intensely the last 10) and it’s like Groundhog Day.  It just seems that once a Republican enters the Oval […]

Thumbnail image for Mike Rowe Dissects Media Narrative Bias Toward Trump Voters

There is a media narrative about uneducated white men supporting Trump. Mike Rowe, when asked, was happy to talk us through it. Let’s assume that Donald Trump is indeed popular among white men who didn’t graduate from college. The first question is, so what? Is this information newsworthy? Obviously, thousands of journalists think it is. […]

The media is spending more time doing a forensic analysis of Melania's speech than the FBI spent on Hillary's emails. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 20, 2016 Not a perfect comparison. I think the FBI did an extensive investigation but were told to put all in boxes and walk away. But regardless of what the […]

This is just a piece but it gives you the flavor of what the next five months will be like, and I’m just not talking about Trump “running” for President. I refer to the beating the press is going to get before the eyes of an American public that has a truly inadequate sense of […]

Thumbnail image for Facebook “Trending News” Scandal Gets a Status Update

Facebook’s fiddling with what appears to be a trending topic has had a ‘status update.’ An instruction guide published by The Guardian on Thursday shows that from start to finish the Trending Topics sidebar was designed to allow a small group of Facebook “news curators” to elevate, or suppress, topics and outlets. The Guardian has documents outlining […]

Notable Quote – Howie Carr

by Skip September 11, 2015

The mainstream media goes crazy about Trump’s latest remark, tasteless as it was, and most of the voters immediately remember the absolute lack of outrage whenever a Democrat says something as bad, or worse. – Howie Carr (reporter, syndicated columnist, author, and Radio Hall of Fame talk show host).   Dunno if “most of the […]

So what does “Do no evil” really mean in politics in this light

by Skip August 13, 2015

MAGINE AN ELECTION—A close one. You’re undecided. So you type the name of one of the candidates into your search engine of choice. (Actually, let’s not be coy here. In most of the world, one search engine dominates; in Europe and North America, it’s Google.) And Google coughs up, in fractions of a second, articles […]

The Non-Objective Progressive masks slips in the media: “Reprehensive Party of FL”

From Big Journalism: “NBC does it again, this time through a Miami affiliate that broadcast a graphic (see above) that read: “Reprehensive Party of Florida.” You have to ask yourself what kind of culture there is at NBC News that makes staffers believe that dehumanizing Republicans in this way is okay.

“It’s for the Children!” – except when it is all about an adult

How About a Little Bias?

by Steve MacDonald March 15, 2013

Much of the media bais that occures is subtle.  From choosing what stories to cover and what to ignore to how issues, ideas, and people are framed in context, word choice and tone convey connotation, intentional or not, to the reader. Here’s a classic example from Yahoo! News. Claudine Zap, writing for The Lookout – […]
