News Busters

  • On MSNBC's The 11th Hour, host Stephanie Ruhle spent the opening segment of her show on Tuesday evening with her assembled panel to discuss the fallout from the FBI's raid on former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida. While the panel discussion itself could constitute a NewsBusters blog in and of itself, […]
  • With President Biden having spent Monday in flood-stricken Kentucky and departing Wednesday for vacation in South Carolina, Tuesday marked perhaps the week's only White House briefing, so reporters got in their takes about the FBI raid of former President Trump's Florida home. Of course, Fox's Peter Doocy did battle with Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on the raid and […]
  • Morning Joe tried to get viewers’ tears flowing for democracy on Tuesday by bringing on Florida state attorney, Democrat, and lefty-caterer Andrew Warren. Warren was recently suspended by Governor Ron DeSantis for refusing “to enforce Florida's 15-week ban on abortion and gender-affirming care.” Warren’s response? Acting like a free speech martyr and calling DeSantis a “wannabe dictator,” and the MSNBC cast was […]
  • On Tuesday, the day after the FBI raided former President Donald Trump’s Florida home at Mar-a-Lago, ABC’s World News Tonight highlighted how not only have Trump’s allies come out in opposition to the FBI’s raid and its lack of transparency but some of Trump’s biggest critics have expressed their dissatisfaction. Anchor David Muir noted the […]
  • With news of Trump’s home of Mar-a-Lago being raided by the FBI dominating the news, substitute host Dr. Jason Johnson brought on Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank on Monday night's ReidOut to spread fear that news of the raid would inspire a latter-day Timothy McVeigh to commit an act of terrorism comparable in scale to the 1995 […]
  • The lack of transparency from the FBI about their Monday night raid of Mar-a-Lago and the Trump team not releasing the search warrant has left a lot of room for incendiary and impotent hot takes. And it left one MSNBC national security analyst, Clint Watts, room to suggest that the secrecy surrounding the raid was […]
  • The Latino networks opened the week´s news cycle by shilling for the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act”. Univision anchor Carolina Sarassa even insisted that it “adheres to (Biden’s) promise not to increase taxes on families or companies that earn less than $400,000 a year”, as opposed to what experts have warned will happen. Yet, while Telemundo, […]
  • During Tuesday's At This Hour on CNN, fill-in host Poppy Harlow brought on CNN legal analyst Paul Callan to break down the legal ramifications of Monday's raid on former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida. Shockingly, at least during this brief moment, there was no celebrating or chest pounding over the former […]
  • Meta (Facebook) helped liberal outlet Axios’ growth allowing it to secure a $525 million sale price, part of a wider problem of tech companies funding D.C. media outlets, according to a new report. Facebook helped recent media startup Axios sell itself to Cox Enterprises for $525 million only five years after Axios’ founding, according to […]
  • The “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC dedicated extensive time Tuesday morning to the stunning news that former President Trump’s Palm Beach, Florida home of Mar-a-Lago was raided Monday night by the FBI with a search warrant reportedly pursuant to a possible Presidential Records Act violation.  However, the liberal networks were surprisingly not […]
