  • Conflict of Interest: CNN Gives Gooey Interview to Valerie Jarrett, Fails to Disclose(T)

    There are few things more damaging to the liberal media’s credibility than conflicts of interest and false/fake stories. For CNN, it was the latter on Friday’s New Day as co-host Alisyn Camerota treated former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett to a softball interview, but failed to disclose that Valerie’s daughter (Laura Jarrett) is a CNN Justice correspondent. If CNN wants to lecture Fox News or anyone else in the media about ethics, perhaps it should lead the way in transparency. And, no, it shouldn’t be assumed all viewers are able to make the connection between Laura and Valerie Jarrett. The...
  • Vanity: Who do you trust? Who can we trust?

    Who do you trust? Who can we trust? This is an open question, for which I personally don’t have many answers. I ask this at a personal level, societal level, and global level. I’m not a cynical person, but like many I am currently disillusioned and disappointed by what I see as a world in which deceit is acceptable - if it is an ends to a personal means and advances one’s self interest, and a world in which ‘honor’ doesn’t seem to be as valued a concept as I perceive it once was – at least in the abstract....
  • Newsweek: Trump Spent one-third of his Presidency at his own Properties, Golfed More than Obama

    President Donald Trump has now spent almost one-third of his time in office at his own properties and has played more golf than President Obama over the same period. The president has visited one of his properties on 112 days of his presidency, according to a count NBC News updated Wednesday in the midst of Trump's 10-day Christmas vacation at Mar-a-Lago—his private club in Palm Beach. U.S. taxpayers paid $6.6 million in airfare alone this year for Trump’s frequent trips to Mar-a-Lago, according to U.S. Air Force records. Trump also spent part or all of about 40 days at his...

    President Trump on Sunday accused The Wall Street Journal of “falsely” reporting him saying he has a “good relationship” with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and publishing so-called fake news because the newspaper wanted a big story. “The Wall Street Journal stated falsely that I said to them ‘I have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un’ (of N. Korea). Obviously I didn’t say that. I said ‘I’d have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,’ a big difference. Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters,” Trump said over two tweets. “And they knew exactly what I said and...

    ABC News has demoted its embattled chief investigative correspondent, Brian Ross, after he botched an “exclusive” report on Donald Trump and Russia. News President James Goldston announced to staffers on Friday that Ross would be reassigned to ABC News’ outside production house, Lincoln Square Productions. Ross, who had been scheduled to return from a four-week, unpaid suspension on Thursday, will not be resuming his former, longtime role. He is believed to be retaining his title of “chief investigative correspondent” though he is not expected to be seen on ABC with live reports, so it’s unclear how he will perform those...

    The New York Times, citing only anonymous sources, accused President Trump of saying Haitians “all have AIDS” and Nigerians live in “huts,” and several attendees at the meeting then went on the record to say the accusations were false. According to The Times’ report, the president was furious after seeing a report of how many foreigners had entered the country since he became president. “More than 2,500 were from Afghanistan, a terrorist haven, the president complained

    Ten years ago, a family arrived in the Bronx from Yaoundé, Cameroon, not speaking a word of English. This Christmas, they are celebrating a feat that would be impressive for any family: Three of the family’s five daughters have been accepted to Ivy League universities. In a year in which our nativist president would have you believe that immigrants are, at best, a job-stealing drain and at worst, criminals, rapists and people with AIDS, these three remarkable sisters are worth paying attention to. Not just because they are inspiring — they are — but because they are far better ambassadors...

    WEST DES MOINES, IOWA Ask someone like Sam Banks about the tax plan President Donald Trump signed into law Friday, and you hear something other than the effusive joy Republicans in Congress put on display this week. The $1.5 trillion plan cuts taxes broadly while bestowing its richest benefits on companies and wealthy individuals. It is the first major legislative achievement for a president who rode to the White House with the full-throated backing of people like Banks who felt America's economic policies needed a drastic overhaul. Yet Banks, a 50-year-old farmer in sparsely populated southwestern Iowa, regards the tax...

    Tax reform is done. It’s about to be law. It’s the largest revamp in three decades, but not a single Democrat voted for it. Not even Democrats from states that Trump won by wide margins. It’s a big gamble for both sides. If it doesn’t produce the economic results the GOP has been pushing, they’re sunk. If it does maintain economic growth, and any patriotic American should hope so (we’re booming at four percent right now), then Democrats have to explain why they voted against the middle class, working families, more money in Americans’ pockets, and just overall relief. Why...

    President Donald Trump slammed Washington Post politics reporter (and former Journolist) Dave Weigel for posting a photo mocking Trump for the size of the crowd at his rally Friday night in Pensacola, Florida that was actually taken well before Trump entered the venue. Weigel mockingly quoting Trump’s tweet about the rally, “Packed to the rafters”. As The Gateway Pundit reported earlier Saturday, liberals online, including the site Raw Story, were spreading a photo of the rally taken well before Trump took the stage at the Pensacola Bay Center that showed many empty sections of seats. It was falsely claimed that...

    ABC News’ Brian Ross stepped on a rake with that botched Flynn-Russia story—and there are whisperings that his future might not be bright at the network. It all began when Ross reported that Donald Trump had ordered Michael Flynn, the ex-national security adviser, to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 election. Well, as it turns out, the timeline was off. It was after Trump had won the election, so President-elect Trump ordered Flynn to make contact with the Russians per the usual actions of any transition team laying the groundwork for an incoming administration. After several hours, ABC...
  • ABC News Suspends Brian Ross for 4 Weeks Without Pay: ‘Effective Immediately’

    ABC News has announced that Brian Ross would be suspended for four weeks without pay “effective immediately.” “It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience – these are our core principles. We fell far short of that yesterday,” the network said in a statement on Saturday. “Effective immediately, Brian Ross will be suspended for four weeks without pay.” Ross came under considerable fire on Friday after he erroneously reported on live television that then-candidate Donald Trump had instructed Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians.

    MSNBC has been caught faking the silliest piece of news. The network attempted to trick viewers that the hosts of “Morning Joe” were hard at work on Friday, airing a “live” morning after Thanksgiving show. In reality, the show was pre-recorded.As reported by the Washington Post, Mika Brzezinski, cohost along side Joe Scarborough, opened the show with playful banter.  “Day after Thanksgiving! Hoo! I’m stuffed. I always cook the turkey with the guts in it !” said Brzezinski.“Joe didn’t notice. He ate the bag,” joked co-host Willie Geist  “It was good! Well, you know, the game made up for it...

In it was an important admonition, especially appropriate for our times:Encourage yourselves daily while it is still today, so that none of you may grow hardened by the deceit of sin (Heb 3:12).Collectively speaking, we been hardened by the deceit of sin. Many of us who are older remember times when sins that are openly practiced (and even celebrated) today...

    “Cuba normally gears up quickly for storms with constant advisories on TV and radio urging people to prepare. The Civil Defense, run by a general and the military, jumps into action to evacuate people and animals from low-lying areas, to move food supplies to higher ground, harvest crops quickly and distribute the monthly food rations to people before the storm hits.” (CBS News. Sept. 8.) In fact, as late as the night of Sept. 5th with Hurricane Irma forecast to rake the entire island of Cuba from end to end, many Cubans were completely unaware of the hurricane’s very...

    Constitutional conservatives have known for some time that the Washington Post’s “conservative” Jennifer Rubin is a Beltway progressive. Over the past week, she has offered some of the most concrete proof to date supporting that argument. It is past time for the Post to end the charade. Just last week Rubin came out against tax cuts, supported a judge striking down Texas’ bid to end sanctuary cities, attacked small-government conservatives in the wake of Harvey, and much more. It’s almost as if the Post has hired a former left coast attorney to act as a conservative to undermine conservative principles....

    'Something posing as objective data is actually rigged'! Conservative authors long have charged the New York Times with skewing its best-seller list against them, but now, citing the Times’ low ranking of Dinesh D’Souza’s latest best-seller, a major publisher is severing its ties with the “paper of record.” Regnery, pointing to Nielsen BookScan’s figures, based on actual sales through major retailers, contends the Times is rigging its list, ranking D’Souza’s “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left” below books with half as many sales. “There’s been a lot of talk about the New York Times being...

This brave Hispanic man tells how before he "saw the truth", he used to be "hard-core anti-Trump" and if...

    Kelly Sadler, a low-level staffer in the White House, lied about her credentials to push inaccurate leaked information to the press about the resignation of Dr. Sebastian Gorka from the administration.[snip] Sadler’s claim that she is a “Senior White House official” is not true. She is not a “Senior White House official.” She is a low-level press staffer, and a commissioned officer as a special assistant to the president. In addition, her claim that Gorka “did not resign” is also untrue. Gorka sent the president a detailed resignation letter, as multiple media outlets have reported.
