  • ‘Herd Mentality’ Evident in Media Coverage of Israel — Former AP Reporter

    Cybercast News Service ^ | October 20, 2017 | 5:37 PM EDT | Patrick Goodenough
    News coverage of Israel is distorted both by the lopsided amount of attention it gets from world media and from a “herd mentality” that embraces and promotes a narrow, simplistic view of “what the story is,” according to an author and former Associated Press reporter in Israel. Israel accounts for 0.01 percent of the world’s territory and has roughly the population of New York City, but when Matti Friedman joined the AP in 2006, he recalled in Jerusalem this week, the wire service had 40 full-time staff in the country. That was more than the number of AP staff covering...
  • Fake News: NBCNews.com Labels Democratic Senator Menendez as a Republican

    MRC NewsBusters ^ | 09/06/2017 | Curtis Houck
    On Wednesday, NBCNews.com published an Associated Press dispatch on the bribery trial of Democratic Senator Bob Menendez (N.J.), but there was one huge problem in that Menendez was labeled a Republican. Translation? NBC News saw no reason to engage in basic proofreading or got caught red-handed in the act of liberal bias. The unauthored post sat for well over two hours before being changed. NBCNews.com offered a correction at the bottom of the story: “CORRECTION (Sept. 6, 2017, 5:35 p.m.): An earlier version of this article misstated the party affiliation of Menendez. He is a Democrat, not a Republican.” Seeing...

    Mainstream media bias isn't just against President Trump, but also Israel. On Friday, CNN, NBC, ABC, and CBS published headlines equating three terrorists behind clashes in the West Bank during the day with three Israelis who were stabbed to death the following night in the area: CNN.com.com: "3 Israelis killed in stabbing; 3 Palestinians killed in clashes." NBCNews.com: "Al Aqsa Mosque Clashes: 6 Killed as Jerusalem Shrine Tensions Worsen." CBSNews.com: "3 Palestinians, 3 Israelis killed in violence over Jerusalem shrine" ABCNews.com: "3 Palestinians, 3 Israelis killed in violence over holy site" Additionally, the Associated Press published an article with the headline "6 killed as tensions...
  • How the AP Stylebook censors 'pro-life' and other conservative words

    The Hill ^ | 07/09/17 04:20 PM EDT | Rachel Alexander
    A journalism stylebook is supposed to provide universal guidelines for writers when it comes to stylistic things like punctuation, capitalization and so on. This includes choosing certain words over others. The original intent of word preference was to use words that are more neutral than others. But in recent years, that concept has changed. More often than not, style writers have been more interested in censoring conservative words while promoting language that liberals tend to favor. That’s been especially true of the AP Stylebook published by The Associated Press. It’s unfortunate, because that’s the guide most journalists rely upon. Even...

    The Associated Press is at it again, pushing more fake news. Sadly, the once-great news wire service is trying to cover up its mistake—nearly the exact mistake that cost three editorial staffers at CNN their jobs in a scandal that first exploded a week ago today. A Breitbart News investigation has led to the correction by the Associated Press–which originally resisted–of the fake news it printed as deeper questions of responsibility, accountability, and journalistic ethics consume the AP heading into Fourth of July weekend. This time, the Associated Press invented an imaginary meeting between EPA administrator Scott Pruitt and Dow...

    It is now official: Hell has frozen over.On more than a half-dozen occasions, I have shared with you my outrage over the biased, anti-Trump slant of the Associated Press. No major newspaper or broadcast media outlet in America is immune to the AP’s tentacles reaching into the nation’s newsrooms with ever- more-hysterical examples of Yellow Journalism disguised as “news.” (Full disclosure: my Salem Radio Network’s 24/7 SRN News and TOWNHALL.com News services are AP subscribers and—thus—must devote considerable staff time to ferreting out the actual news within AP’s unending distribution of anti-Trump screeds which apparently must meet fewer standards...

    The Associated Press, PolitiFact, CNN, Snopes and all of the other "fact-checkers" should be busy this weekend and well into next week vetting the howlers contained in Rebecca Traister's New York Magazine Friday afternoon interview of a politician who has been in the public eye for decades. But it's a virtual lock that they won't bother, because the person Traister interviewed was Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton's montage of mendacity is virtually guaranteed to escape the scrutiny of "fact-checkers" because, as I noted at NewsBusters in mid-April, they "overwhelmingly select facts presented by Republican and conservative politicians and pundits, while ignoring similar howlers generated by...

    CNN's Brian Stelter angrily contends that the rape of a 14 year-old girl at Rockville High School in Montgomery County, Maryland on March 16 at the hands of two late-teen illegal immigrant freshman classmates should never have been a national story — and the fact that it is to an extent, despite obvious attempts to blackball it by the Big Three broadcast networks, is all Fox News's fault. The real question, which the public education establishment and their accomplices in the press don't want anyone to ask, is this: What has happened in the nation's schools during the past 35 years as...

    Now that the Trump-Russia fake news story is crumbling as Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi warned liberals, how can the mainstream media continue to report on this fact-free topic? Simple. By invoking masters of fiction in the form of spy novelists. Therefore it is appropriate that Associated Press writer Hillel Italie consulted several of those fiction writers to comment on fake news fiction. You will look in vain for any actual facts but at least you will be somewhat entertained by his desperation to report something in his March 8 AP article, Spy novelists keeping an eye on Trump-Russia allegations:
  • For Trump Foes, Democratic Gains May Remain Elusive in 2018

    ABC News ^ | February 5, 2017
    Passionate protests against Donald Trump's presidency have swelled the ranks of Democratic activists, but their new enthusiasm faces a hard reality: Republicans remain well-positioned to retain their grip on power in the 2018 elections. While Republicans hold only a slim majority in the U.S. Senate, Democrats occupy most of the seats up for election in two years. That means they must play defense against Republicans, especially in 10 states that Trump won. In the U.S. House, Republicans will be aided by favorable district boundaries that were drawn to maintain GOP political dominance. In some cases, the congressional districts were gerrymandered...
  • Associated Press Spreads Fake News Story About Trump Threatening To Invade Mexico

    02/03/2017 2:10:03 PM PST · by davikkm · 9 replies
    Fake News was a hot issue during the presidential election. As President Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continued to escalate tension, the threat of fraudulent news sources only worsened the partisan divide. As has been shown time and time again, the fake news threat isn’t in the so-called “alt-right” movement or a product of conservatives. Fake News is actually on the rise in the mainstream media, the most trusted source of news for many Americans. The dishonesty among propagandists disguised as journalists is a betrayal of American trust. When people turn on the television or open...

    European Union nations bracing for the looming Donald Trump presidency showed defiance Monday in the face of the president-elect's stinging comments on everything from NATO and German cars to the crumbling of the EU itself. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said the U.S. president-elect's view that NATO was obsolete and his criticism that European allied members aren't paying their fair share had "caused astonishment." Trump also said Britain's decision to leave the 28-nation European Union would "end up being a great thing," and he predicted that other countries would also leave. At a meeting of EU ministers, French Foreign Minister...

    In reaction to the news that Facebook is partnering with the Associated Press, ABC News, and Snopes, among other apparent “fact checkers” to tag and weed out “fake news” on the popular social site, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg assured him that “his express aim is to eliminate only patently false news stories from Facebook.” “I have been in communication with Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook since he announced their new ‘fake news’ initiative,” said MRC President Bozell in a Dec. 16 statement. “I expressed grave concern with this decision and the liberal ‘fact-checking’ organizations...

    Who? The Clinton campaign? ^ | September 12, 2016 | Self
    Who controls press footage and when it's released. Noticed this on video that was released on Twitter a few minutes ago. Seems that it was probably only released after it was approved by the campaign and it shows different angles and what they want you to see. Does the Clinton campaign see and approve all video before it's released by the press corps. Seems that the public will never really see an honest view of what is going on with her health if everything is controlled and scrubbed https://www.yahoo.com/news/clinton-much-better-leaving-9-162249715.html?format=embed

    AP ^ | 7/6/2016 | Stephen Brown and Jack Gillum
    Key assertions by Hillary Clinton in defense of her email practices have collapsed under FBI scrutiny. The agency's yearlong investigation found that she did not, as she claimed, turn over all her work-related messages for release. It found that her private email server did carry classified emails, also contrary to her past statements. And it made clear that Clinton used many devices to send and receive email despite her statements that she set up her email system so that she only needed to carry one. FBI Director James Comey's announcement Tuesday that he will not refer criminal charges to the...

    DENVER – Once a swing state in presidential elections, Colorado has teetered on becoming solidly Democratic. Donald Trump may have pushed it over the edge. Trump’s disparaging words about Mexicans, negative comments about women and weak campaign organization have punctuated the state’s shift from a nip-and-tuck battleground to one that’s Democrat-friendly. ... And it’s not just Colorado. Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric and weak campaign structure could ensure that perennially competitive Nevada and New Mexico are out of reach as well.

    The depths to which “respected” journalists will stoop in seeking to create a narrative to sway elections and poll numbers defy comprehension. False allegations, slanderous innuendo and general hit-job reporting, which were once relegated to angry bloggers and unhinged writers, have been steadily creeping into what many regard as respectable news organizations. The latest episode comes from an Associated Press story by Jay Reeves in the form of his June 30th piece celebrating the sesquicentennial of the Ku Klux Klan. Why any news organization, let alone the AP which claims to  "abhor inaccuracies, carelessness, bias or distortions,” would spend so much time profiling an organization whose...

    International mediators trying to promote Mideast peace warned in a highly anticipated report Friday that Israel’s settlement expansion is eroding the viability of a Palestinian state and raises “legitimate questions” about its commitment to a two-state solution. The Quartet of Mideast negotiators — the U.N., U.S., European Union and Russia — also criticized the glorification of Palestinians who commit “terrorist attacks” against Israel and called on the Palestinian Authority to “act decisively” to stop incitement to violence and clearly condemn “all acts of terrorism.” While the Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the majority of people on both sides support a...
