An ethics lesson for USA Today's "queer" bullies by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 This week, I did something that USA Today's executive leadership apparently hadn't done lately: I read the newspaper's "principles of ethical conduct for newsrooms." It's pretty highfalutin. The media manifesto of virtue, posted online, applies to all employees "working with... Read More
Weapons of mass manipulation by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 Confirmation bias damages reputations. It ruins credibility. It destroys lives. When researchers ignore contradictory data that undermines their assumptions, junk science prevails. When police conduct investigations with predetermined outcomes, wrongful convictions abound. And when reporters cherry-pick facts and distort images to serve political agendas,... Read More
On Fire: The Racist Anti-Racists at MTV News by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2017 It's only the second week of 2017, but it's already been a banner year for preening liberals on cable TV who are hell-bent on self-immolation in the name of proving everyone else's moral inferiority. To use young people's slang these... Read More
The Messy Truth about Race-Baiting Radical Demagogue Van Jones by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 They never learn. The grand journalism pooh-bahs at CNN were humiliated this election cycle when WikiLeaks revealed that former CNN contributor and interim DNC chair Donna Brazile had shared a question with the Hillary Clinton campaign in advance of...

The baby butchers and their media butchers by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 "I'd say a lot of people want liver." The propagandists of Planned Parenthood don't want you to remember that earlier this summer the group apologized for the "tone" of one of its top officials, Deborah Nucatola, who casually hawked unborn baby...

The NAACP's fomenters of fear by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 They just can't help themselves -- and their agenda-driven media enablers never, ever learn. This week, the NAACP made national front-page headlines with a local press release demanding that the feds investigate the hanging death of a local man in Port Gibson, Miss.... Read More
CNN, DHS & SPLC's Blame Righty hit job by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 The Department of Homeland Security refuses to release a report on "right-wing" terrorism that somehow found its way into CNN's hands last week during the farcical White House summit on Don't Say Islamic Extremism. Your tax dollars are once again... Read More
The Fallon-ization of Freaky-Deaky Dunham and Lyin' Williams by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 Comedian Jimmy Fallon is a celebrity fraud's best friend. He's an answer to normal America's question: How do creepy stars get away with their grotesqueries? If you're lucky enough to sit by his late-night throne and join his cool-kid games,... Read More
As I'm sure you've all heard by now, NBC News anchor Brian Williams -- a real journalist -- finally admitted he has been lying about coming under RPG fire in Iraq in 2003. Fed-up troops called him out, but even after being forced to 'fess up, he still clung to lies and "misremembrance." I am... Read More
Don't miss my enlightening exchange with the Washington Post reporter covering the trial of the illegal alien accused of murdering Good Samaritan Vanessa Pham. Read it here. MSM rules reminder: Reporting on citizenship status is unacceptable agenda journalism, unless it serves liberal narratives. Love, Just A Blogger
Ready for your mainstream media Real Journalism of the day? Here is a 705-word article about something Maine GOP Gov. Paul LePage may or may not have said, according to two anonymous sources, contradicted by several on-the-record sources, and refuted by the governor himself. The gossip-as-reportage i
In August, I blasted the Commission on Presidential Debate's choices of three Beltway lib journo-tools -- CNN’s Candy Crowley, PBS’s Jim Lehrer and CBS’s Bob Schieffer. So far, they've acted just as expected and predicted. As I noted: While the debate panel trumpeted the gender diversity of its picks, the chromosomal diversity is far outweighed... Read More
Mitt Romney was right. Barack Obama was wrong. And now, after journo-tool/moderator Candy Crowley jumped to Obama's aid in front of millions of viewers, CNN is admitting that her fact-check was not kinda, sorta, no completely "cut and dry" factual. READ: CNN walks back false “act of terror” fact check. How's that crow tasting, lapdogs?... Read More
CNN's Candy Crowley will be moderating tomorrow night's second presidential debate. It will be a 90-minute town hall forum at Hofstra University on Long Island, east of New York City. Both the Obama and Romney campaigns signed a "memorandum of understanding" about how the debate will be run. But Crowley is already making noises that... Read More
A few debate questions for Obama that won't be asked by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Tonight, left-leaning TV anchor Jim Lehrer of government-supported PBS will moderate the first 90-minute presidential debate in Denver. The forum will focus on domestic policy. Lehrer alone will determine the topics and questions for six 15-minute segments, and... Read More

During the ceremony, Marines paid tribute to Atwell, an aircraft electrical, instrument and flight control systems technician with Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 16, from Kokomo, Ind.

(Photoshop via Doug Ross) Eddie Haskell Brooks by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 New York Times columnist David Brooks is the Eddie Haskell of the Fourth Estate. Like the two-faced sycophant in "Leave It to Beaver," Brooks indulges in excessive politeness while currying favor with political authority. He prides himself on an oily semblance... Read More
Journo-tools For Obama by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Can we stop calling the hosts of the presidential debates "moderators"? They're left-erators. It's time for the old media godfathers to end the pretense that they're fair and neutral observers of the American political scene. And it's time for the GOP to stop perpetuating these... Read More
If you are in the Cleveland area this Saturday, you won't want to miss the Tea Party protest to bring attention to MSM whitewashes/cover-ups of Occupy violence/criminality. BE HERE: Willard Park/Freestamp Plaza in Cleveland, Ohio Saturday, August 18, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM (EDT) I mentioned the event last week in my post... Read More
Scroll down for update... At RightOnline in Las Vegas this weekend, those of us in the "Just A Blogger" club hammered away at the MSM journalistic elites and their self-serving double standards. Fantastic keynote speaker Sarah Palin mocked the inhabitants of MakeUpCrap-istan who disparage investigative bloggers while manufacturing the news themselves to fit their agendas.... Read More
What's the matter with Soledad O'Brien? by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 CNN's Soledad O'Brien isn't used to criticism. In the world of media elites, she's a beloved figure and an award-winning news anchor. But last week, she revealed her true, decidedly non-neutral colors. And she's not happy about the hoi polloi questioning her... Read More
The editor of the New York Times just got religion: He thinks it’s time to ask GOP presidential candidates “tougher questions about faith.” Oh, brother, where wast thou in 2008? The Fishwrap of Record led the whitewashing of Barack Obama's wacky black liberation theology pals and freaky-deaky Chicago pastors. Now, the skews-paper is ready to... Read More
Sigh. Seriously, Tina Brown? Yes, I'm talking about you, Oxford University-educated Newsweek/Daily Beast editor Tina Brown. You've resorted to recycling bottom-of-the-barrel moonbat photo cliches about conservative female public figures and their enraged "crazy eyes?" Really? Who's in charge of Newsweek cover graphics now -- a Media Matters Soros Monkey? A random Daily Kos commenter? Keith... Read More
Remember those misdirected death threats from unhinged anti-Koch addicts that Doug Powers spotlighted last week? Refresher here. Well, government-sponsored National Public Radio -- erstwhile guardians of civility -- apparently found the death-threat misdirection amusing. A segment last Friday on NPR's Morning Edition made light of the plight of Iowa businessman Dutch Koch -- no relation... Read More
The media is filled with left-wing activists. The race card is the first and last refuge of liberal scoundrels. The race-card playing liberals in the media tried their best to whitewash Barack Obama's radical ties to Jeremiah Wright and other race demagogues. We hold these truths to be self-evident, but it's always useful to see... Read More
Well, it's good to see the New York Times finally paying attention to Democrats who tell bogus war stories: Here's video of Blumenthal saying he served in Vietnam. And here's video of him saying he didn't: What a total crapweasel. As this blog has long reported, the Left has had repeated issues with telling the... Read More
One down. Fiftysomething to go. An apology from Gannett Wisconsin Media for getting duped by Astroturf Ellie: Next? *** I'll be discussing the Astroturf presidency tonight on Hannity/FNC at approx. 9:30pm Eastern.
Anatomy of a smear.
Remember Ashley Todd? She was the young Republican hate crimes hoaxer who carved a backwards "B" on her face and tried to blame it on an Obama supporter last fall. I took a lot of crap from from my own commenters for doubting her fishy story straight out of the box. At least you guys... Read More
“We believe it was an intentional act on his part to take his own life."
Reminder: This was the smear graphic spread on far Left blogs that accuses prominent conservatives of contributing to the death of Kentucky census worker Bill Sparkman. Note the caption at the bottom: "He reaped what they sowed." When will the Left retract the Kentucky census worker case smear against conservatives? I'm not holding my breath... Read More
P.C. strikes again.
Chilling details are emerging in the local Colorado press about violent black gangs who have been targeting white victims for months: Although police knew what was going on, citizens were left in the dark. More dangerously blind diversity-mongeringat work? Fear of litigation or accusations of profiling by the usual mau-mauers? You decide: Denver Police Chief... Read More
Palin-bashers of pallor.
MSNBC host Chris Matthews, MSNBC reporter Norah O'Donnell, and MSNBC guest Joan Walsh shamelessly played the race card against Sarah Palin and her book-buying audience last week. In Michigan, O'Donnell smugly noted that Palin's fans were "largely white -- almost no minorities in this crowd." Matthews parroted the line, assailing the "white crowd." Walsh likened... Read More
I've been spotlighting various members of the speech-stifling "media justice" mob over the past few weeks (here and here). They are Marxist-inspired activists seeking to crack down on conservative political speech under the guise of combating “hate” and crusading for “diversity.” Remember: “Social justice” = redistribution of wealth and economic “rights.” “Media justice” = redistribution...

On ABC News this morning at George Stephanopoulos's This Week roundtable, fellow Fox News contributor and conservative radio talk show host Laura Ingraham took Charlie Gibson to task for his ignorance of the ACORN scandal (which, you'll remember, a condescending Gibson said he thinks the MSM should "leave to the cables.") Brava. Keep calling them... Read More
A reader just sent this fresh missive from the Fox News Deranged-foot soldiers at MoveOn: From: Noah T. Winer, MoveOn.org Civic Action [email protected] Subject: Stay off FOX [Recipient name redacted] Date: Tuesday, October 20, 2009, 2:05 PM Dear MoveOn member, All year, FOX has worked 24/7 to block President Obama's agenda—repeating lies about "death panels,"...

Plus: Anita Dunn on getting around the "filter."
President Obama's New Era of Engagement does not include Fox News: Senior Obama administration officials took to the airwaves Sunday to accuse Fox News of pushing a particular point of view, one week after the administration fired its initial salvo to try to isolate the news network by accusing it of being a GOP mouthpiece....

President Obama with Anita Dunn, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, and Robert Gibbs (via White House Flickr stream) My syndicated column today follows up on yesterday's Fox News Derangement Syndrome post. Who has Obama stocked his communications shop with, you ask? Beltway flacks for corruptocrats. Meet some of the key people behind the White House war... Read More
All-whine zone.
Has the waahmbulance arrived at the White House yet? Because the taxpayer-subsidized whining is getting really old: Fox News points out that "a study by the Pew Research Center show
For once, Jon Stewart takes a break from Fox News-bashing to ask where the hell the establishment media reporters have been on the ACORN scandals. Behold his momentary lapse of sanity. *** Meanwhile: Classic ACORN CYA -- always going out of their way to minimize the problem of systemic, coordinated corruption as the "indefensible action...

Stung.
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti ACORN Watch: A “sting”-ing indictment of media hypocrisy by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2009 Undercover journalism is only acceptable when it fits a liberal agenda. That is the message from “professional” reporters and left-wing activists outraged about three successful video stings targeting President Obama’s old friends at the left-wing, tax-subsidized...

Who said it: "The real story to all this is how these myriad entities allow them to shuffle money around so much that no...
The Fishwrap of Record has finally seen fit to tell its readers about the latest ACORN scandals (the San Bernardino tapes, which don't get a mention, are beyond belief). True to form, the New York Times commits grievous sins of omission that whitewash the paper's own role in deliberately covering up ACORN's illicit activities before... Read More
Oh, this is so rich. So, so rich. Norah O'Donnell of NBC News fretted this morning that the ACORN sting videos "might be viewed as entrapment." Yes, she actually said it. Mark Finkelstein has the transcript/video here. Now, let me remind Ms. O'Donnell of the glorious history of news "entrapment" at NBC News. Um, there... Read More
Several Chicago readers and Twitterers report that ABC News anchor Charlie Gibson told WLS-AM Chicago talk show hosts Don Wade and Roma this morning that the reason he hasn't covered the ACORN scandal is that he didn't know about it. Reader Patrick M. e-mails: Don and Roma pointed out that ABC's Jake Tapper reported on... Read More
What's more shameless than the Associated Press defying the wishes of a dying Marine's family and splashing his bloody body all over the wires? Why, the Huffington Post reprinting a massively large version of the image on its front page with an accompanying blog commentary praising the AP photographer's work as "tasteful" -- along with...

Torrid.
David Brooks caught swamp fever a long time ago -- and I've been chronicling it for the past five years. But his symptoms have grown most acute in the Age of Obama. Last fall, his ejaculations about Obama's "achievatrons" inspired the nausea-inducing introduction to Culture of Corruption. Get out another airsickness bag. The New Republic... Read More
Oh, you are just going to love MSNBC's explanation for why the network doctored up video of a black town hall protester carrying a gun to suggest that gun-toting Tea Party folks are all white racists. This takes the cake. I don't think there is a Cone of Shame big enough:

Last night on Hannity, I reminded folks about how the New York Times made millions selling pro-Obama merchandise. Many other MSM outlets have profited from sales of Obama swag and propaganda. Now, check this out from Joe Luppino-Esposito at the Examiner:
Howard Kurtz at the Washington Post sheds a little light on how Rahm F'n Emanuel leaned on network news executives to carry President Obama's health care news conference. It's the Chicago way. Naw! You think!? And no, this is not how the previous administration operated: Tensions have been build
