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.
