Soft and Deferential to Democrats

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The media have spent the last two years arrogantly proclaiming that they are 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 the wildest things, and often, the so-called Courageous Media bend and move on.

The Media Was Still Unglued in 2018

Brent Bozell and Tim Graham, Townhall

The wild conspiracy theories about Trump never stop. Some of them qualify as the worst media quotes of the year. When you read quotes from many prominent leftists, it becomes quite apparent that liberals really aren't a tolerant and compassionate bunch. They sure are angry these days. It's woefully unfair for Trump to call them an "enemy of the people," but it's somehow fair for them to call Trump some kind of Kim Jong-Hitler who eggs on murders of black people, marches kids to the gas chambers and traumatizes babies. Such was the state of things in our national media in 2018.

Media Skip Farrakhan and Hype 'Nazi' Prom

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

In today's America, the "objective" press is looking for racist neo-Nazis under every rock who don't submit to the will of The Resistance. But these same outlets refuse to condemn the ongoing attachment of leftists and Democrats to the anti-Semitic Minister Louis Farrakhan, whether the politicians photographed with him are Reps. Maxine Waters or Keith Ellison, or even former President Barack Obama. The scandal — among some of the most powerful adults in the land — is barely even recognized. National "news" judgment is a pernicious thing.

A Revolution in the Past 14 Years: Conservatives and Alternative Media

By Richard A. Viguerie and David Franke, Authors of America’s Right Turn (2004)
Much has happened in the alternative media since we wrote America’s Right Turn in 2004. Where do conservatives stand today, compared to liberals, in political direct mail, talk radio, cable TV, the Internet, and the new social media? Here’s a scorecard.

Stirrings on the Right Side of the Internet

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In 2004, when America’s Right Turn was published, conservatives were behind the liberals in learning how to use the Internet for political campaigns.  But they were learning, and a major campaign victory in California showed what could be done on the Right. (Excerpt 43 of 45.)

Chuck Todd Badly Undermines Himself

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

If the media wanted to be respected as impartial, there's a simple solution: Act impartial. Be respectful. Quote people accurately. Presents facts, not opinions masked as impartial truth. Report news. Speculate carefully. Never editorialize. In other words, don't write stuff like this. Todd might even decide to avoid the furtive wining and dining with the Podestas and the Palmieris. That's the way to build confidence. It's the opposite of what the "objective media" offers us every day.
