  • Fake News: Stephanopoulos Claims Senate Bill Cuts Medicaid by $800 Billion

    06/25/2017 11:33:53 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 43 replies ^ | June 25, 2017 | Nicholas Fondacaro
    After Senate Republicans unveiled their ObamaCare replacement on Thursday, ABC smeared the bill during World News Tonight with claims that people were going to pay more for less and that Medicaid was being cut. On Sunday, Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos took to his show, This Week to continue their smear campaign. “The President right there said no cuts in Medicaid … Why is the President going back on his promise,” he rudely yelled at Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway. According to Stephanopoulos, “A lot of senators have questions about the Senate bill. Particularly those cuts in Medicaid. More than $800 billion.”...

    CNN is reportedly implementing strict new rules for the network's stories regarding Russia. CNNMoney executive editor Rich Barbieri sent out an email Saturday regarding the network's new rules after the network a day earlier issued a retraction on one of its stories. "No one should publish any content involving Russia without coming to me and Jason [Farkas]," said the email, obtained by BuzzFeed News. "This applies to social, video, editorial, and MoneyStream. No exceptions," the email added. "I will lay out a workflow Monday." The new restrictions come after CNN on Friday retracted a story that connectedAnthony Scaramucci, a prominent...
  • Dem Congresswoman to Activists: Don't Say 'Control' When Talking Gun Laws

    06/13/2017 7:53:58 AM PDT · by rktman · 30 replies ^ | 6/12/2017 | Nicholas Ballasy
    Rep. Elizabeth Esty (D-Conn.) called for campaign finance reform to mitigate the gun lobbys influence on the political process and urged Democrats to drop the phrase gun control. Esty said gay Americans, in particular, shouldnt support government control of any aspect of their lives so they should use the term gun safety instead of gun control when advocating for tougher gun laws. She told attendees at the Center for American Progress Action Fund event that the NRA leadership is way out of touch with its membership on the issue of background checks for every gun sale. I mean, the numbers...

    In one of the last segments on Sundays Reliable Sources, CNN host Brian Stelter spent nearly four and half minutes whining about the public, specifically Trump supporters, who dont believe the news media. If you don't believe the media, then you probably don't believe that the Trump administration has had a dysfunctional few months, he chided at the start of the segment. If you don't believe the media, you might not believe Russia's meddling in last year's election is a very big deal. Stelter admitted that the distrust in media started long before President Trump, but he rested its current...

    NBC News was forced to issue a correction on Sunday evening after spinning its newest talent Megyn Kellys interview to falsely claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin does not deny having compromising information on President Donald Trump. To promote the debut of Kellys Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly program, NBC News tweeted, EXCLUSIVE: Putin does not deny having compromising information on President Trump in interview with @megynkelly. CNBC, NBCs sister station, did not send out fake news, linking to the same story after tweeting, Russias Putin denies having compromising information on Trump. Reuters also reported on the interview and tweeted,...

  • Deception is a cornerstone of progressivism

    Lies are as important an ingredient in the ideology of progressives as is h20 in water. Two months ago, a Planned Parenthood pamphlet from 1952 was making the rounds, and everybody was rushing to condemn the organization for it. Here is the pamphlet. Here it is again, and again and again. The last link is the most direct, but at the same time the most problematic. It states at the top "MATTERS OF LIFE AND DEATH". This entirely misses the point and as far as I'm concerned, it's dangerous. If you guys want to attack individual leaves on the tree,...

    Thursday on his No Spin News podcast, Bill OReilly weighed in on CNN reporting that there was a crisis within the members of the White House. According to OReilly, the supposed crisis is fake and is being manufactured by mainstream media to hurt President Donald Trumps ability to govern. Partial transcript as follows: So in the midst of this big story, terror story, in England and the president speaking to the Pope and then going to NATO in Belgium, what do I see on CNN? White House in crisis. This is what theyre doing. This is what their lead was...

    Long time CTH readers will note we extended well over a year of benefit-of-the-doubt to the motives of former FBI Director James Comey with regard to the severity of his politicized nature and disposition. Throughout the entire Clinton investigation we remained ambivalent to Comeys motives. Indeed it wasnt until after the Pulse nightclub terrorist attack when Comey obtusely noted the FBI had been contacted (prior to the attack) about the sketchy behavior of Omar Mateen by a random concerned citizen -and our finding that the actual citizen was the far more substantive St Lucie county sheriff Ken Mascara that we...

    Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York City, the eighth-richest person in the United States, and the billionaire behind the rabidly anti-gun group Everytown for Gun Safety, was asked on CBS 60 Minutes why he didnt run for president of the United States. His answer was revealing. If I thought we could win, or had a reasonable chance, I would have [run for president], he said. It would be totally unlikely, very unlikely that an independent could win. And in my case, I was mayor for a long time. People know where I stand. I couldnt pretend to be something...

    CNN has an article up today titled Black Lives Matter cases: When controversial killings lead to change which looks at how individual shootings highlighted by BLM have resulted in some changes to the law. Lets stipulate up front that theres nothing wrong with the subject matter here. A roundup of legal changes that have resulted from these high profile cases seems worthwhile. Whats not worthwhile is the way CNN frames a couple of the best-known cases, even failing to note there is no evidence for the story behind hands up, dont shoot. Heres CNNs description of the Michael Brown shooting:

  • White House Correspondents' Chief: 'We Are Not Fake News'

    The president of the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) on Saturday pushed back against President Trump's claims that news outlets covering his administration critically are reporting "fake news." "We are not fake news, we are not failing news organizations and we are not the enemy of the American people," WHCA president and Reuters correspondent Jeff Mason said at the organization's annual dinner. Trump and his chief strategist Steven Bannon have repeatedly referred to members of the media as the "enemy of the American people," while Trump himself has long maintained an antagonistic relationship with the press. Mason's speech received a...

    President Trump took a few more shots Monday at his old nemesis the pollsters who confidently predicted his loss last year after new surveys were released playing up the presidents low approval ratings at the end of his first 100 days. But the same polling also buried some more positive news for the president: hed still beat Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head matchup, according to one survey. The Washington Post-ABC News poll showed that 43 percent said they would support Trump if the election were held today, compared with 40 percent for the former Democratic nominee, Clinton. Trump...

    The New York Times spread a pair of misleading photos of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots visiting the Trump and Obama White Houses, giving the false impression that significantly fewer Patriots players and staffers showed up for President Trump. The tweet quickly went viral, picking up over 44,000 retweets. "Patriots' turnout for President Obama in 2015 vs. Patriots' turnout for President Trump today:" NYT Sports (@NYTSports) April 19, 2017 But the Patriots explained in their own tweet that the Times was comparing apples and oranges. The 2015 photo included about 40 staff members, who were...

    When you receiving a devastating fact-check by the Twitter account of an NFL football team, it might be time to delete your newspaper. That very thing occurred on Wednesday, when the New York Times tweeted out two photos comparing the number of Patriots coaches and players who attended in 2015, when Obama was president, versus how many attended on Wednesday with President Trump: "Patriots turnout for President Obama in 2015 vs. Patriots turnout for President Trump today:" NYT Sports (@NYTSports) April 19, 2017 Clearly, the tweet makes the Obama White House visit look significantly better attended than...
  • Graphic Fail: USA Today Thought MOAB Was Almost As Destructive as Hiroshima A-Bomb

    On Thursday, the U.S. military dropped a MOAB (Mother Of All Bombs) on an ISIS tunnel complex in Nangahar Province in Afghanistan. Shortly after that, USA Today posted a breathtakingly ignorant graphic purporting to show that the MOAB contained over 70 percent of the destructive force of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan. This epic fail occurred even though the following comparison was known early on: The MOAB has the force of 11 tons of TNT. For comparison, the bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945 had the force of 15 thousand tons of TNT. The destructive force of the...
