    What happens if COVID death rates plummet to the point of no longer being a pandemic threat? The media will turn it on Trump.> Legacy media became predictably hysterical after President Donald Trump’s speech Friday defending American exceptionalism at one of the nation’s most iconic monuments, Mount Rushmore. “We will state the truth in full, without apology: We declare that the United States of America is the most just and exceptional nation ever to exist on Earth,” Trump proclaimed from the South Dakota Black Hills. “We are proud of the face that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and...

    SEATTLE -- Following days of violent confrontations with protesters, police in Seattle have largely withdrawn from a neighborhood that protesters have transformed into a festival-like scene that has President Donald Trump fuming. Trump taunted Gov. Jay Inslee and Mayor Jenny Durkan about the situation on Twitter and said the city had been taken over by “anarchists." “Take back your city NOW. If you don’t do it, I will,” Trump tweeted. The “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” sprung up after police on Monday removed barricades near the East Precinct and basically abandoned the structure after officers used tear gas, pepper spray and...

    SNIP Dutch investigators believe a human may have contracted the novel coronavirus from a mink at a farm in the Netherlands. New research findings in the ongoing investigation into the country's mink farms also show that the animals can have COVID-19 without showing any symptoms, according to a press release from the Dutch government. Investigators also believe cats may have a role in the spread of the virus on the mink farms. Coronavirus antibodies were detected in three out of 11 cats at one of the mink farms under investigation. Pending further research, the Dutch government is advising mink farm...

    EXCLUSIVE: ABC News will present three days of special coverage to how the coronavirus has reflected, exposed or exacerbated racial, ethnic and socioeconomic divides. Starting on Wednesday, the reports, titled Pandemic — A Nation Divided, will appear across all of the network’s platforms. The series is rooted in statistics showing a disproportionate impact of the virus on African Americans and Latinos and other communities. For instance, in New York City, African Americans are twice as likely to die of the virus, according to the network. In Washington, D.C., Latinos have been seven times more likely to be infected than white...

    Facebook didn't provide much confidence in its ability to navigate the uncharted waters of a pandemic in the age of Big Tech on Monday. Experiencing a pandemic on the scale of the Wuhan coronavirus in the age of Big Tech is a journey into uncharted territory, making the industryÂ’s often cozy relationship with the political class a recipe for new abuses of personal data and speech policing. Facebook didnÂ’t provide much confidence in its ability to navigate these waters on Monday. At first, the company seemed to be bragging about its work with state governments to remove posts promoting protests...

    On Wednesday, President Trump and members of his crisis response team were questioned four times during a press briefing on the White House’s plans to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, which originated in China, about whether it is racist to call the disease the “Chinese virus.” Four times. ABC News’s Cecilia Vega was the first to bring up the matter of problematic terminology. “Why do you keep calling this the ‘Chinese virus’?” the White House correspondent asked. “There are reports of dozens of incidents of bias against Chinese Americans in this country. Your own aide, Secretary Azar, says he does not...

  • VIDEO: Martha Raddatz Goes Full Handmaid's Tale at Soleimani Funeral

    VIDEO My big takeaway from watching the funeral of that "gentle poet" Qasem Soleimani in Iran was that Martha Raddatz, despite being made to wear the Iranian version of the Handmaid's Tale outfit, will come back to the USA with nary a word of criticism about that. Meanwhile liberals hypocritically continue portraying President Trump and conservatives of not so secretly wishing to impose a Handmaid's Tale type of dystopian future on America while we actually have a REAL LIFE Handmaid's Tale existence in Iran that they are reluctant to criticize.
  • The Funny Part About ABC News' Absurd Australia Wildfire Map That Was Dragged for Its Stunning Inaccuracy

    Wildfires are raging in Australia. We’re going to get an earful about global warming again because Australia has never been hot or prone to wildfires until Donald Trump won the 2016 election, but that’s a separate matter. ABC News peddled some straight fake news about the natural disaster, superimposing the entire continent onto the United States to show the scale of the disaster. The problem is that it’s not accurate. As some, like Washington Free Beacon reporter Alex Griswold, noted this claim is contradicted in the ABC News article [emphasis mine]: The raging fires in Australia have burned over...
  • ABC Continues Hunt For Amy Robach ‘Leaker’ After Getting Young Woman Fired From CBS

    11/13/2019 12:36:05 PM PST · by Red Badger · 19 replies ^ | by Wes Walker on November 13, 2019
    The same networks working to protect the identity of a leaker that may or may not be ‘Eric C’ with respect to impeachment, they are DESPERATE to ‘out’ their own whistleblower. It seems a little bit ethically dishonest, doesn’t it? Someone can release information intended to be damaging to the President without any fear of contradiction or scrutiny, but ABC has already reached out to another network to request the firing of someone ABC had assumed was the whistleblower. The person they had fired maintained her innocence and that was upheld by Project Veritas itself, who published a message sent...

    New York Magazine ^ | Nov 08, 2019 | Irin Carmon
    It gives me no pleasure to report that I agree, on just this one thing, with Donald Trump Jr., who went on The View Thursday to say he shouldn’t be condemned for naming the Ukraine whistle-blower when ABC News is cracking down on its own Jeffrey Epstein–related leaker. This is a matter on which Trump Jr. is both self-serving and hypocritical, but let us acknowledge this broken clock. News organizations should not hunt down leakers in their ranks, not when it’s a matter of valid public interest — specifically, how the press reported on a serial abuser — even if...

    Project Veritas broke a scandal a couple of days ago, featuring an unwitting ABC News anchor, Amy Robach, fuming angrily that she had the Jeffrey Epstein scoop three years ago, with solid reporting, and ABC News refused to run it. Unlike Ronan Farrow, who quit NBC News on principle after the network spiked his Harvey Weinstein story and took his scoop to the New Yorker, (winning a richly deserved Pulitzer prize for it), Robach, for whatever reason, stayed on the job and decided to get along to go along, keeping her mouth shut. She's obviously found herself in hot water since the Veritas tape, and...

A TV source said the woman was let go on Wednesday, after ABC execs alerted CBS.

    On Tuesday, the undercover investigative journalism outfit Project Veritas released a video of ABC News anchor Amy Robach venting about ABC spiking her Jeffrey Epstein scoop three years ago. ... ABC News defended its refusal to air the story. In a statement, the network said, “At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards for air.” But where were these strict “standards” when ABC News covered the obviously fantastical claims of Jussie Smollett?
