  • AP Terminates Melanie Plenda, Leftist Activist Hired to Sneak into KellyAnne Conway Event

    The Associated Press will no longer employ Melanie Plenda, a leftist activist exposed by Breitbart News, after she was caught violating the news wire service’s editorial standards. Plenda announced that the AP has terminated her effective immediately in an interview with the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple. Her termination comes as a Nov. 10, 2016, Facebook post she wrote—in which she pledged resistance to then-incoming President Donald J. Trump—was found to be in direct violation of the AP’s editorial standards. Plenda, in her interview with Wemple, confirmed she wrote the leftist activist post on her Facebook page—a post she has since...
  • The Associated Press Goes Around The Bend On Comey

    Associated Press news stories on controversial topics are generally adapted from Democratic National Committee press releases, but when the AP really wants to cut loose it labels its stories “AP Analysis.” This one, by Julie Pace, is headlined: “AP Analysis: Trump thrusts US presidency into perilous area.” Not just Trump’s presidency, but “US presidency,” to reinforce the Democrats’ absurd claim that Trump’s firing of the inept James Comey somehow represents a constitutional crisis. Why was it so shocking? The Democrats have been demanding it for months. This is deeply dishonest. Note that the AP doesn’t say that Trump is the...

    Killer shouted "God is great." ...Or something Or: DELETE THAT! As you’ve probably heard, a man in Fresno California shot and killed three men because “he decided to kill white people.” It seems he was responsible for another killing and, after the police tapped him as their suspect, he went completely haywire. That’s terrible, but at least it wasn’t terrorism. That’s the word from Fresno police and the AP, who are doing everything they possibly can to ignore any uncomfortable Islamic connections. ...As you’ll see, they have to ignore quite a bit.

    Beirut: Warplanes on Saturday struck the Syrian town where a chemical attack had killed scores of people earlier this week, as Turkey warned that a retaliatory US missile strike on a Syrian air base would only be "cosmetic" if greater efforts are not made to remove President Bashar Assad from power. The airstrikes on the opposition-held northern town of Khan Sheikhoun, where 87 people were killed in the chemical attack earlier this week, killed a woman and wounded her son, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees, an activist collective. Elsewhere in Syria,...

    Pay attention! When it comes to ignoring policy substance and governance, no media outlet is a bigger violator than the Associated Press. OK, maybe the New York Times and CNN, but that’s about it. Indeed, the AP is so steeped in its obsession with trivia and drama, it sometimes finds itself shocked to learn that actual governance is going on right under its nose.

    A veteran State Department reporter is throwing cold water on a bombshell report that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson instructed some staff members “not to speak to him directly — or even make eye contact.” The Washington Post’s Thursday story portrays Tillerson as a reclusive figure who is "isolated, walled off from the State Department’s corps of bureaucrats in Washington and around the world." The piece says Tillerson has instructed his staff to warn "career diplomats" not to speak or make eye contact with him. "Most of Tillerson's interactions are with an insular circle of political aides who are new...

    Back on April 26, 2016, liberal reporter Michael Isikoff reported on Trump’s chief campaign aide Paul Manafort connections to a billionaire Russian oligarch. This was a week after Donald Trump sealed the Republican nomination in the 2016 primary. Paul Manafort was questioned by officials in the Cayman Islands about his ties to billionaire Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, a Russian aluminum magnate. Manafort was questioned by officials from the Cayman Islands in connection with a $26.2 million investment by Deripaska. Yahoo reported: A lawyer for Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s chief campaign aide, acknowledged Tuesday evening that the longtime GOP operative has...

    Congressional Republicans have a lot to say about their new president. Donald Trump's proposed budget is "draconian, careless and counterproductive." The health care plan is a bailout that won't pass. And his administration's suggestion that former President Barack Obama used London's spy agency for surveillance is simply "inexplicable." With friends like these, who needs Democrats? Less than two months in, Republicans have emerged as one of the biggest obstacles to Trump's young administration, imperiling his early efforts to pass his agenda and make good on some of his biggest campaign promises. Trump's embrace of a House GOP plan to overhaul...

All without the wall he promises to build, or any reported boost in deportations, or any surge in patrol agents.The boast was one of a number at a Tennessee rally Wednesday night that did not track with the facts.

    THE DEPARTMENT OF Justice secretly obtained phone records for reporters and editors who work for the Associated Press news agency, including records for the home phones and cell phones of individual journalists, according to the AP, in what the agency characterized as “serious interference with AP’s constitutional rights to gather and report the news.” The records, covering all of April and May 2012, were seized by the DoJ earlier this year and covered more than 20 separate phone lines. The records listed outgoing calls for both the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, as well as the general...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is spotlighting violence committed by immigrants, announcing the creation of a national office that can assist American victims of such crimes. He said during his address Tuesday night that the Homeland Security Department's Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement office will provide a voice for people ignored by the media and "silenced by special interests."Critics of the president's approach to immigration say the proposal is misguided, in part because studies show immigrants are less likely to commit crime than native-born U.S. citizens.A look at the proposal and what it aims to do: WHAT IS THE...

On the heels of defeat they’ve employed a variety of strategies to help them cope.

    According to a transcript obtained by AP of the phone call which took place on Friday morning between President Trump and his Mexican counterpart, Enrique Pena Nieto, and which was intended to patch things up between the new president and his Mexican peer a day after Pena Nieto called off his visit to the US, Trump threatened to send U.S. troops to stop "bad hombres down there" unless the Mexican military does more to control them itself. The excerpt of the call did not make clear who exactly Trump considered "bad hombres," - drug cartels, immigrants, or both - or...
