Tracking Liberal Media Bias Since 1996 

Morning Edition: Friday September 07, 2012 @ 09:45 AM ET

Brian Williams, during NBC’s Thursday night coverage of the DNC, 

unleashed the biggest howler of the night when he told White House

Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett: “You, I guess have to play mistake-free

ball now for 60 days, hope for nothing but positive coverage. That's a

tall order.” Given NBC’s coverage that evening that will be anything 

but a tall order” as Williams and his colleagues praised Barack 

Obama and dumped on Mitt Romney all night. Right before Williams’ 

question to Jarrett, Chuck Todd labeled the GOP convention a “missed 

opportunity” for Romney and David Gregory absurdly declared that 

the “Republican party does not have a natural advantage on national 

security” and insulted Obama foes as “hate-filled.”

2. MSNBC Marvels at President Obama's Convention 

The liberal personalities on MSNBC reacted to President Barack 

Obama's Thursday night speech at the Democratic National 

Convention in the exact same way they did to Bill Clinton the 

previous evening - with unanimous praise. Ed Schultz's ecstacy was 

apparent: "He made me feel good tonight. He made the American 

people feel good tonight, and he gave us confidence....It was a very 

visionary speech." Al Sharpton trumpeted the President's "epic" 

address, and declared, "I think that Barack Obama won the election 


3. Ex-Newsweek's Fineman Sees Obama's Claim It is 

During the midnight hour of MSNBC's Thursday night Democratic 

National Convention coverage, MSNBC analyst Howard Fineman -- 

formerly ofNewsweek -- declared that it was "brilliant" for President 

Obama to suggest that Republicans are being "unpatriotic" in trying to 

make an issue of the economy's poor performance during his time in 


4. The MRC@25: The Worst Media Bias of 1993

Among our 1993 bias highlights: the Washington Post smears 

Christian conservatives as "poor, uneducated and easy to command," 

Dan Rather fawns over Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Helen Thomas 

disavows any tilt, saying she does not “know what a liberal bias is.”

5. Pelley and Williams Zinged Mrs. Romney from Left, But 

Last week in Tampa, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley and NBC 

Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, both hit Ann Romney with a 

pointed political contention from the left, but tonight (Thursday) in 

Charlotte, neither challenged Michelle Obama with any political 

argument forwarded by conservatives. Williams posed a long-winded 

question about the Obama daughters and cued up the First Lady to 

assess a New York Times reporter’s take that President Obama is “‘a 

proud yet humbled President, a confident yet scarred President, a 

dreamer mugged by reality.’ Does that resemble the man you know?” 

Pelley reminded Mrs. Obama how “in your speech on the first night of 

the convention, you said that the presidency ‘does not change a 

person, it reveals the person.’” He then queried: “And I wonder, has 

this experience revealed anything to you about your husband that you 

did not know?”


  1. The media has pegged the BS O'Meter.

    Obama's flying monkeys in the press will do everything in their power to get their messiah reelected.

  2. Critical theory is only applied to one's "enemies", never to one's self.

  3. So the leftist media must be living in their own make believe world, especially when 65% of the country are saying that the country is on the wrong track. If those vote against the forces that brought the country to this point Obama may have a difficult time getting re-elected.

  4. Did Oprah make it out to Charlotte to support her man this time? Or did Michelle tell her to keep her fat ass out of it this time?

    I didn't spend much time watching this carnival of the deluded.

  5. Yes, Thersites, and "Critical Theory" -- at least as I have come to understand it from what I have learned of Gramsci and the Frankfurt School -- means that virtually everyone who does not agree to move zealously in lockstep toward Marxian goals is considered an "enemy" to whom no courtesy may ever be extended and absolutely no credit whatsoever, and no quarter may ever be given.

    Truth is "irrelevant" to the Cultural Marxist. "Victory" is all that matters, and "victory" means the acquisition of ABSOLUTE POWER and the ANNIHILATION of individual freedom, personal wealth and the ownership and enjoyment of private property.

  6. Unfortunately, Waylon, the "make believe world" created by the enemedia has become the ONLY "reality" for the masses and the "Educated Elitists" who dream up "brilliant" schemes in their ivory towers to foist on the rest of us in the guise of creating "A Better World for the The Common Man."

    The Great Delusion might be summed up by claiming that every army can -- should -- and must -- be staffed solely with Generals or the moral equivalent thereof.

    Our precious Founding Fathers -- and those leaders of The Enlightenment in England, France and Switzerland who influenced heir thinking -- opened up a Pandora's Box when they made the grievous error of bringing the concept of "EQUALITY" to public consciousness.

    Notions of Egalitarianism have brought us a World of Woe, because they have been so easily -- and effectively -- perverted by power mad schemers into making the cardinal sins of Envy, Spite, Malice and Lust for Vengeance appear "respectable" -- even "virtuous."

    God help us! Satan has taken over, and practically no one even begins to realize it.

  7. You're right, of course, SilverFiddle, but do you know the reason WHY the ubiquitous influence of the enemedia is as powerful and antithetical to our Founding Principles as it is?

    And if we knew how and why it happened, what COULD and SHOULD be done about it?

    As I've said before -- and doubtless will say again -- if you're being screwed, wouldn't it be a good idea to know by WHOM and WHY?

    ~ FreeThinke

  8. Here's a fine quote from one of the masterminds of the current world we have to deal with, at least in my opinion:

    "We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world-government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the National autodetermination practiced in past centuries."

    -- David Rockefeller in an address to a Trilateral Commission meeting in June of 1991
