The national media watch group

Rising GOP star Marco Rubio doesn't believe in climate change. But watch how the reporter who asked him about it reacts.
ABC's This Week: Edward Snowden sparked a "raging debate"--so here are two guests who don't like what he did.
This week on the show: CNN brings back Crossfire–but isn't it time to stop "debating" climate change? Plus a look at big media leaving the CIA out of their reporting on the resurgence of polio, while ABC News brings viewers an infomercial for parent company Disney.
National Journal reporter James Oliphant has discovered that the Obama White House has a very powerful weapon it can deploy against its critics: bloggers.
It's enough to make you wish Crossfire would take another break--or at least decide that the climate crisis demands an entirely different sort of debate.
There's a crucial piece of information missing in the New York Times and CBS's reports on the return of polio from near-extinction—one that these outlets know full well.
It doesn't appear that ABC bothered with the sort of normal journalistic disclosure during its segment on its parent company's theme park. Maybe it's simply too hard to keep track of all the Disney promotion they're doing.
'Both sides' are exaggerating the impact of the Keystone XL pipeline, says a Washington Post reporter. He's half-right.
On the show this week: CNN goes to Iran nuclear expert… Benjamin Netanyahu? Plus new nonsense on Benghazi, and Meet the Press presents a discussion on affirmative action with mostly conservative white guys–showing media's need for some affirmative action of their own.
Bill O'Reilly calls out the media for dishonest Benghazi coverage. But he's the one mangling the facts.
Big efforts are underway to burnish Bill Clinton's economic legacy. The New York Times does its part by failing to quote critics of Clinton's record.
USA Today's headline was "GOP Calls New Benghazi E-Mail 'Smoking Gun.'" What the memo actually proves is that "scandal" is defined as any deviation from the fantasy world jointly created by the Republican Party and its media accomplices.
An NBC roundtable on affirmative action--dominated by conservative white men.
Paul Ryan says he wants to fight poverty, and he can convince reporters that he means it. But what about his actual record?
With peace talks on hold, Israeli prime minister is back on US television talking about Iran's supposed nuclear threat. Good thing for him his claims are so rarely challenged.
One of the most consistent rules in corporate media's political coverage: If you're talking about Democrats, you should point out that those who drift too far to the left could find themselves in trouble.
The New York Times has a big exclusive on Russia--and quietly walked it back a few days later. David Brooks offers his thoughts on the Mideast and Obama's "manhood," CNN finds a guest who says innocent civilians don't die in drone strikes.
The New York Times decided to walk back its story once there was skepticism about the photos they had been supplied. Will NBC do the same thing for its viewers?
It's hard to see how a move to criminalize routine discussions between government officials and members of the press is anything but an attempt to shut down such conversations.
The New York Times published a big front-page scoop documenting Russian special forces operating in Ukraine. And then they published a correction--of sorts.
