Washington Post Issues Extraordinary Correction to Column Ripping Greenwald, Snowden

National security reporter Walter Pincus took to the pages of the Washington Post earlier this week to attack NSA leaker Edward Snowden and by extension Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian reporter who initially broke the story. It is safe to now say that the Pincus column was riddled with factual errors, half-truths, and innuendo because the Post has just issued a lengthy three paragraph correction. Jul 11, 2013 6:20 AM PT

Five Things You Weren't Told In Politico's Immigration 'Slow Death' Report

But there are a number of crucial pieces of information "Behind the Curtain" leaves, well, behind the curtain. Here are five things VandeHei and Allen chose not to disclose....

NBC's Senior Political Editor Claims DC Scandals Not 'Real'

Chuck Todd Uses Faulty Logic to Rip GOP Over ObamaCare Opposition

Whether it is same-sex marriage, gun control, immigration, public union reform, or various environmental laws, President Obama and Democrats (with no small amount of help from left-wing judges and media types like Todd) have done everything in their power to, in Todd's words: "thwart/stymie/sabotage" laws passed by federal and local legislatures. In other words, Democrats regularly do the exact same thing the GOP is currently trying to do with ObamaCare: kill/bypass/ignore laws they disagree with. Jul 10, 2013 6:47 AM PT

In an effort to boost the stock price of its television and Internet business, the Tribune Company announced Wednesday that it would spin off its faltering publishing unit (which includes the LA Times, Chicago Tribune and six other papers) into a separate company.

Media Blame Recession For Decline In Newsroom Racial Diversity

NSA Story Boosts Guardian's Traffic; Catches up to New York Times

The Guardian is currently enjoying a huge boost in U.S. traffic for the same reasons Fox News regularly crushes its cable news competitors: people are hungry for legitimate reporting, especially as it pertains to those in power. In other words, people are interested in the kind of journalism the mainstream media now refuse to do. Jul 9, 2013 10:49 AM PT

Drudge Hits Media For Ignoring Increased Afghan Troop Casualties Under Obama

Using his verified Twitter account, Drudge Report owner/editor, Matt Drudge, criticized the mainstream media Tuesday over their deafening silence on the issue of mounting U.S. troop casualties in Afghanistan.

Media Critics Blame 'American People' for CNN Going Tabloid

There are over 300 million people in this country and I'd bet that close to 250 million are old enough to watch television and comprehend what they are watching. This means that fewer than one-half of one-percent are watching the Zimmerman trial on the cable nets. Throw in Headline News and you still aren't at 1%. Jul 9, 2013 6:21 AM PT

Monday, the Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin took issue with a Sunday New York Times' article written by Martin about Liz Cheney's possible run for the U.S. Senate. Jul 8, 2013 12:12 PM PT

As Newseum Struggles to Cover Costs, Chiefs Earn Big Salaries

The mainstream media frequently attack CEOs they see as making too much money, especially as it compares to what their employees make. You have to wonder, then, what the media will make of the situation at the Washington DC Newseum, the museum that honors their profession. Jul 8, 2013 10:15 AM PT
