    Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy on Monday morning issued an apology for his show having run with a since-retracted story falsely accusing Nashville’s Democratic mayor of engaging in a coronavirus cover-up, admitting that the mayor did not conceal information from the public as alleged. Last week, a supposed bombshell by a local Fox affiliate in Nashville set the conservative media ecosystem on fire. According to the report by Fox 17—a Sinclair-owned station—the mayor’s office allegedly covered up numbers that showed relatively low spread of COVID-19 in bars and restaurants. The clear implication of the story was that the city...

    The Daily Beast is being criticized over a misleading report about the deaths that have occurred among educators amid the reopening of schools during the coronavirus outbreak. Fourth Watch media analyst Steve Krakauer highlighted an article published last week that read the "heartbreaking" headline, "At Least 4 Teachers Have Died of COVID-19 Since Start of School Year." "At least four teachers have died of coronavirus-related causes since the beginning of the school year—an ominous sign of what’s to come as students return to classrooms across the country," the report grimly began before citing the deaths of teachers from Pennsylvania, Mississippi,...

    President Donald Trump's niece Mary L. Trump is publishing a book that will reveal herself to be the primary source of a New York Times investigation into the president's finances, The Daily Beast reported. Mary Trump will say she supplied The Times with confidential family tax documents, The Daily Beast said. The Times investigation later revealed that the president wasn't a self-made man but had his father bolster his failing businesses in the 1990s with hundreds of millions of dollars. Mary Trump is the daughter of Fred Trump Jr., the president's older brother who died in 1981 at the age...

    He blamed issues at The North Star on over-ambition, but seven former employees of the site King launched with great fanfare painted a darker picture. When Shaun King and progressive journalist Benjamin Dixon launched an ambitious multimedia reboot of Frederick Douglass’ abolitionist newspaper, The North Star, last February, it was celebrated across social media by prominent voices including Susan Sarandon, Michael Eric Dyson and Megan Mullally. A month later, the company boasted on Twitter that it already had “multiple angel investors” and more than 30,000 subscribers contributing $5 per month for students and $10 a month and up for the...
  • Journalists Attack Trump Campaign For Satire ‘Truth Over Facts’ Website, Forgetting That It’s A Biden Gaffe

    Journalists missed a reference to a Biden gaffe Monday after the Trump campaign launched a new website titled “Truth Over Facts.” President Donald Trump’s campaign launched what appears to be a joke website they described as “an investigative website aimed at uncovering the truth behind [former Vice President] Joe Biden’s never-ending, seemingly incomprehensible statements during his third, plodding campaign for president.” The “Truth Over Facts” title is, in fact, a reference to one of Biden’s public gaffes, where he made the comment during a 2019 campaign speech in Iowa. This seemed to go over many journalists’ heads as they attacked...

    Kathy Griffin unexpectedly severed ties with her attorney, Lisa Bloom, over the weekend, but the comedian has come forward to explain why she axed her. In an interview with the Daily Beast, Griffin recalled the disastrous June 2 press conference she participated in with Bloom to address her controversial Donald Trump “severed head” photo. Hours after the much-maligned event, Griffin participated in a conference call with Bloom, her entertainment lawyer and her First Amendment lawyer, as well as Braden Pollock, who is Bloom’s husband and the manager of her firm. “Lisa said, ‘Kathy, I don’t like it that you’re the...

    The White House coronavirus task force on Sunday dangled new CDC guidance that might suggest some Americans with exposure to the 2019 novel coronavirus could return to work wearing a mask. Vice President Pence on Sunday said the guidance “will make it possible for people that have been exposed to return to work more quickly with—by wearing a mask for a certain period of time.” He suggested it would be spelled out in more detail this week. When asked about the potential guidance on Monday, Pence said it was still in the works, and might be targeted at a small...

    China, Chinese Virus, CNN, Corona virus, In an article and TV segment yesterday, CNN’s Nick Paton Walsh and Vasco Cotovio argued that the Chinese virus pandemic was not the fault of China’s communist government or bats, but “human activity.” The big winner in this bizarre way of telling the story is China, which is launching a furious disinformation campaign to distance itself from blame for the pandemic.According the CNN theory, the real problem is a global one. Through climate change and other means, natural habitats are being destroyed. This displaces animals such as bats. When the bats are displaced (and...

    LONDON—On Thursday, Boris Johnson delivered the most chilling warning from a British prime minister since Winston Churchill prepared the country for potential destruction during World War Two. “I must level with you,” Johnson said, looking like a man who had just emerged from a doctor’s office after receiving a terrible diagnosis. “Many more families are going to lose loved ones before their time.” His message was stark, and somehow seemed to hit even harder coming from a man who has built his political career on flippant clownery. The novel coronavirus can no longer be contained in the United Kingdom, he...

    After weeks of ignoring the series of scandals surrounding former Vice President Joe BidenÂ’s son that surfaced during President Donald TrumpÂ’s impeachment trial, reporters are suddenly interested again as Biden reclaims his frontrunner status for the Democratic presidential nomination.The focus on Joe BidenÂ’s son, Hunter Biden, which never received adequate media attention in the first place, tapered off throughout the presidentÂ’s impeachment trial and became nearly absent by the time Senate proceedings got underway. In the same week Trump was acquitted, Joe BidenÂ’s presidential hopes began to plummet following a poor performance in the Iowa caucuses. BidenÂ’s chances of becoming...

    Go back over 40 years, to the start of Iran’s long conflict with the United States. On April 1, 1979, the theocratic Islamic Republic of Iran was proclaimed. Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who had returned to Iran from exile to assume command of the revolt, became Supreme Leader in December of that year. His rise was accelerated by the seizure on Nov. 4 of 52 American diplomats and citizens, and citizens of other countries, at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. The hostage crisis became the means by which the Ayatollah crushed political opponents in Iran. Dealing with the hostage taking became...

    2020 presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is calling on financial regulatory agencies to investigate whether President Donald Trump broke the law when he told associates and attendees of his Mar-a-Lago club to expect something “big” in response to Iran’s killing of an American contractor in Iraq. The Daily Beast previously reported that Trump told allies at his Palm Beach club, that he had something “big” in the works to address Iran’s aggressive behavior in the region and that they would read about it “soon.” The president specifically mentioned to some of his associates at Mar-a-Lago that he’d been in...
