By Tim Graham ~ Three weeks ago, The Washington Post wrote a story on the allegedly racist Covington Kids, smelling a pro-Trump rat. The online headline was “A viral story spread. The mainstream media rushed to keep up. The Trump Internet pounced.” But on Thursday morning came a surprise: the front page of the Post […]

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ The liberal desire to rebut President Trump is so overwhelming that they’re now  “fact-checking” him live or the moment his last sentence is completed. The State of the Union has an Official Democrat Politician Rebuttal, but why bother? They need only give links to national “news” sites since […]

By Tim Graham ~ Last August, Washington Post nonfiction book critic Carlos Lozada wrote a very dismissive essay on six “sycophantic pro-Trump books,” proclaiming none of them were “useful,” since they didn’t seek to convince the middle. He concluded: “For most Americans, it is the ballot box, not the bestseller list, where such determinations [judging […]

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ The National Football League is back on top of the ratings heap after both conference championship games were so competitive they spilled into overtime. Sunday’s New England Patriots-Kansas City Chiefs game drew 53.9 million viewers to CBS — a shocking 27 percent increase and the most watched NFL […]

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ So who is the mastermind at Gillette that came up with the idea that the best way to sell men’s razors was to insult your customers with condescending liberal propaganda about “toxic masculinity”? Is pandering to the perpetually angry feminists in the media the way to grab positive […]

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Anyone catching the television ads for the Dick Cheney-trashing movie Vice found them heavily promoting it with the surprising six Golden Globe nominations it received from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. That affirmation also became the “news hook” for press interviews with the director and the actors, seeking […]

By Tim Graham ~ Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan is acting like a very badly disguised editorial writer again. On the front of Friday’s Style section, she attacked Trump’s fashions in Texas under the headline “Fashion crisis at the border.” The headline after the article jumped inside to page C2 was “Trump’s choice of […]

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ The media have spent the last two years arrogantly proclaiming that they were the urgently needed public servants who would boldly challenge power and ask the tough questions. But does that boldness continue when the Democrats win some power back? It doesn’t look like it. Democrats can say […]

By Tim Graham ~ NBC’s Golden Globes Awards co-hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh sounded an intereresting note in an interview previewing the show for The Hollywood Reporter. Neither was interested in piling up the anti-Trump hot takes. ANDY SAMBERG: Everyone is depressed, and maybe that’s as good a reason as any that everyone could […]

By Tim Graham ~ Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan was brought in after the House swearing-in to write about fashion — well, not really. As usual, she used fashion as a subtext for her liberal politics. The new ultraliberal women in the House were all fabulous in their diversity of dress: At the start […]

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ It’s a little hard to judge popular culture in the Trump era, wherein content creators are judged solely on political impact — are they offering enough “Resistance”? — instead of the quality of their product. The Democratic gains in the midterms should make the Left happy about its […]

By Tim Graham ~ A few days ago, we explored how NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd insisted in an interview with Jamie Weinstein at National Review that the difference between his networks (NBC/MSNBC) and Fox is his “always operate in a fact-based environment.”  There was another jaw-dropping moment in the interview, where Todd […]

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Is there anything, anything at all, for which President Trump won’t be faulted by a press corps that despises him so much they are making a mockery of themselves in front of the world? They slammed the president for failing to visit troops in a war zone. Then […]

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Talk-radio host and friend Chris Plante recently made an excellent point about Hollywood. As horrible new revelations of sexual misbehavior surface about CBS CEO Les Moonves, it’s highly unlikely anyone’s going to make a movie about him, or about Matt Lauer, or about Charlie Rose, and so on. […]

By Tim Graham ~ Fox News media reporter/anchor Howard Kurtz broke the scoop that the Trump White House cancelled the annual Christmas party with the press. This shouldn’t be that much of a surprise, in that the Trumps haven’t attended the White House Correspondents Association dinner, and after the court fights over the brief suspension […]

By Tim Graham ~ Washington Post nonfiction book critic Carlos Lozada underlined how well he matches his paper’s red-hot hatred of the current president in his list of the “most memorable books I read in 2018.” Cable-news personalities made the list, both good (CNN’s Amanda Carpenter) and bad (Fox host Jeanine Pirro, pictured). Pirro’s Liars,  […]

By Tim Graham ~ The Washington Post loves to present President Trump as boisterously snide…and quite obviously, they can’t imagine anyone would apply that description to them. On Wednesday night, the Post website was boasting at least three articles ripping into Trump’s behavior at the funeral, or his bad optics. This isn’t a “newspaper.” It’s […]
