NewsBusters rings in 2022 with stand-in host Nick “Night Train” Fondacaro alongside Research Director Scott Whitlock to discuss the media's New Year resolution to make every day -- and the upcoming midterm election season -- about January 6 in an attempt to swing the election for Democrats.

NPR recently suggested the Beatles signified how the rock band was a white-male institution. They also explained that "yacht rock" like Steely Dan, Toto, and the Doobie Brothers is culturally appropriated black music.
Briefing Room scribe Curtis Houck and Nick “Night Train” Fondacaro discuss CBS editing out comments one of their own reporters made about school closures and CNN claiming there's no “malicious intent” when journalists make “innocent” mistakes.
On Wednesday's podcast, newly minted early bird Curtis Houck and Nick “Night Train” Fondacaro discuss the Covid crazies in the media who are desperately trying to get America to reinstitute mass lockdowns. We also do a rundown on fun project I worked on “2021's Top Dirty Dozen Fredo Moments from CNN's Former Wise Guy.” And chatted with the newest member of the NewsBusters night crew, former intern Kevin Tober about his first few days of analysis.
On Monday's NewsBusters Podcast, deputy managing editor Nicholas Fondacaro and I took a look at just some of the bad headlines that enveloped the Biden administration surrounding its doomed Build Back Better agenda, but before that, we went through a new documentary by liberal sports network ESPN that fawned over NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace.
Harvard's Nieman Lab looked ahead to the "news" business in 2022 and promoted an end to objectivity as a journalism ideal. "Solidarity for social justice" is the new fad, but solidarity with whom? The "marginalized" get a major boost, and if you're not "marginalized," you're going to get lectured about your advantages. They think the media's job is to create "transformational change" for the Left.
The networks suggested that the House Democrats (on a mostly party-line vote) issued a "historic rebuke" of Trump by charging Mark Meadows with contempt of Congress. The same outlets were deeply bored when a GOP Congress held Eric Holder in contempt back in 2012.
Chris Wallace announced he was leaving Fox News, and then he joined CNN's new streaming service. He even said he was “delighted to join Jeff Zucker and his great team.” But leaving Fox for CNN is like leaving the Super Bowl champs to join the Detroit Lions (or the Lions practice squad?)
Thursday marked a harmonic convergence as we wave farewell to the careers of Brian Williams and Jussie Smollett, two fabulists who counted on the Left to promote their misinformation.
The broadcast networks were reluctant and slow in covering the Jussie Smollett trial. ABC's been almost non-existent after boosting Smollett two years ago. CNN found another problem in Don Lemon texting Smollett about how the cops weren't believing his story.
In the third hour of The Vince Coglianese Show, Vince talks with Curtis Houk of NewsBusters about Psaki and the Cuomos. Latinx is apparantly very unpopuar, and what's going on with the Jussie trial?

The toughest part of Jen Psaki's White House briefing is dealing with respectful hardballs from Fox's Peter Doocy. Curtis Houck discusses how Doocy made Psaki's spin too lame to take seriously.
It's time for Republican lawmakers to draw a line in the sand: either end all mandates, or shut down the government. Todd Starnes tackles the Supreme Court abortion case, the looming government shutdown and much more with guests Tony Perkins (Family Research Council President), Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), Rep. Nancy Mace, and NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
In the second hour of The Vince Coglianese Show, Vince speaks with Virginia Kruta of the Daily Wire and wonders why anyone still listens to Dr. Fauci. Curtis Houck of NewsBusters joins the program to discuss the media's handling of Waukesha and more!

How energetically did MSNBC smear Kyle Rittenhouse as a white supremacist, white nationalist, or racist? Quite a bit. Joy Reid led a pack of smack talkers about Kyle being a little racist coward with an AR-15 menacing a violent neighborhood.
On the Sunday after Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty for using his gun in self-defense, the network shows lamented all the alleged racism in the verdict and let liberals lie about Rittenhouse's supposed criminal acts, like bringing an illegal gun across state lines. Teen vigilantes might even haunt prayer vigils!
Breaking news of five "Not Guilty" counts in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial led to media complaints of a "vindication of vigilantism" and an indictment of how America was "designed to work"....for white people.
Newspapers across America use Washington dispatches from the Associated Press on their front pages. But sometimes those AP articles are badly disguised press releases for Bidenites or worried pieces of sociology about "gun culture."
On this episode of the NewsBusters Podcast, Nick “Night Train” Fondacaro and White House briefing scribe Curtis Houck are hanging around to discuss the liberal media's open disdain for average Americans as they scoff at those struggling to make ends meet because of inflation, with one even suggesting people were lying about their struggles.
Vince Coglianese speaks with Curtis Houck of NewsBusters, Nicky Neily from Parents Defending Education, Joel Griffith of the Heritage Foundation, and Harmeet Dhillon of The Dhillon Law Group See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Nick Fondacaro and Curtis Houck dive into the latest lunacy from MSNBC's Joy Reid following a joint effort from her and a team of guests hurling more dangerous invective against anyone who opposes them, including parents wanting to remove pornographic material from schools. They also tackle the liberal media's disinformation campaign against Kyle Rittenhouse as his murder trial comes to a close.
Nick Fondacaro and Curtis Houck examine the sneaky way the media cover elections. They elevate state elections they like, but relegate others to ‘local story' status when they want to bury them. Research Director Scott Whitlock joins the show to call out their almost total silence about the close governor's race in New Jersey.

It's funny when Tim Graham is accused of having a problem with “Democracy and Truth” by a New York Times opinion editor in a pundit panel on media coverage of Biden. Joseph Vazquez of MRC Business discusses MRC being placed in the “Toxic Ten” of sites “denying the climate crisis” by a British anti-“hate” group.

You know it's a good night for Republicans when it's a terrible night of bitterness at MSNBC and CNN. They routinely lied that Critical Race Theory is never taught, a ghost, a fakery.

A black professor told The Root that white people are villainous and should be removed from Earth. And we explore the farce of "independent fact checking" with Brad Slager of RedState and Townhall.
Liberals and their media enablers have a bad habit of complaining conservatives have started "phony trumped-up culture wars." But in reality, the left almost always starts a cultural revolution, and then attacks anyone who resists as a phony.
MSNBC host Brian Williams told black leftist Baratunde Thurston that the press corps live in "blue dots" and don't understand the country "beyond the last exit for a Whole Foods." But they never change!
Politico reported President Biden has granted 10 interviews as president, none since Labor Day. At this point, Trump had done 57, and Obama 131. The media haven't found democracy dying in darkness, even with only three interviews with print outlets.
The networks that are still obsessing over January 6 weren't talking about leftist climate protesters "occupying" the Interior Department this week and fighting with police. (The cops aren't heroes any more.) Plus Geoff Dickens discusses all the Hunter Biden scandal stories the networks are ignoring.
The Daily Wire broke it, and Fox News put it on television. A 9th-grade girl was allegedly raped in a Loudoun County (Virginia) high school by a "gender-fluid" male in a skirt. A month later, a contentious Loudoun County school board meeting on transgender policy included a denial that anything happened in their schools.
CNN and MSNBC lament the media's role in Biden's polling decline. Brian Williams claimed "really crappy reporting" is to blame. Brian Stelter claimed it was irresponsible to push the message "Democrats in disarray" when they can't pass their agenda.
A new Quinnipiac poll showed Joe Biden's approval rating at a dismal 38 percent. Naturally, the networks responded to this bad news by either ignoring it or mentioning it for ten seconds.
The liberal media never tire of anti-Trump "tell all" memoirs, so ex-Melania aide Stephanie Grisham is a hot guest on "news" shows. Plus Katie Couric's forthcoming memoir underlines she's really Catty Katie.
Fox News Channel debuted on October 7, 1996, so they're celebrating 25 years. But CNN host Brian Stelter trashed Fox as a network full of "darkness," a badly clogged heart of the GOP.
The news media have done through dramatic changes since the 1980s, through the rise of the internet and social media and Fox News. Rich Noyes shares his thoughts on his last day as research director for the MRC.
Generals used to specialize in fighting wars. But it seems like under Trump, Gen. Mark Milley was speaking to every liberal journalist writing an anti-Trump book. You wonder if Afghanistan would have turned out better if our top general wasn't so busy “exposing” the president to help the liberals own the best-seller lists.
President Biden claimed in a tweet that "My Build Back Better agenda coasts zero dollars." Since they plan to raise taxes to pay for it, somehow it costs "zero dollars." Journalists like Washington Post economics columnist Catherine Rampell picked up this lame argument.
The media are in the tank for Black Lives Matter, as they energetically disguise how radical they are. Heritage Foundation senior fellow Mike Gonzalez rips away the facade in his new book "BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution."
The hottest recent topic at NewsBusters is the Fake News about border agents whipping illegal Haitian immigrants at the southern border. There are no whips, only reins for horses. Where are the fact checkers to correct the media?
The New York Times reported less than 100 protesters at a "Justice for J6" rally that was hyped for days in advance by CNN and MSNBC. How embarrassing for people who describe themselves as the "reality-based press."
Bob Woodward is offering a third anonymously-sourced trashing of Team Trump, and the networks are lapping it up and cheering the people who allegedly undermined this allegedly nutty president. Don't believe everything you read.
