    The website of taxpayer-subsidized Boston PBS superstation WGBH posted a commentary by local professor Dan Kennedy on December 3 provocatively titled "How Fox News Is Helping Destroy the Planet." Kennedy writes a column weekly for WGBHNews.com and is a panelist on their local show Beat the Press. He began: "Want to fight climate change? Tell your elderly relatives to turn off Fox News." Kennedy cites the latest poll from the liberal Pew Research Center showing about two-thirds of U.S. adults (67%) say the federal government is doing too little to reduce the effects of climate change, and similar shares say...
  • Is The Washington Post, New York Times and CNN Now Declaring Professor Mifsud is *NOT* A Russian Asset?…

    The CIA primarily leaks PR spin to the Washington Post. The FBI primarily leaks PR spin to the New York Times; and the State Dept. primarily leaks PR spin to CNN. This narrative distribution model is the one constant in an ever changing universe. Cue the audio visual… Obviously the prior Washington Post effort to conflate the Durham investigation with the Horowitz investigation didn’t get the desired result. As a consequence it only took a few days before the Washington Post was back at it (Matt Zapotosky and Devlin Barrett again) to try obfuscation 2.0; this time with Joseph Mifsud....

    US forces reportedly conducted an airstrike on a minivan in a north-western Syrian city on Tuesday, killing two targets just 10 miles away from where former ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a raid in October. The targeted strike was said to have involved the use of a secret ‘Ninja’ missile, known as the AGM-114R9X, which substitutes the explosive warhead found on standard missiles for a set of six folding sword-like blades, designed to smash through buildings and vehicles with minimal civilian casualties. According to The Warzone, the hit was carried out in Atmeh, located in Syria’s Idlib...

    An interview Michael Bloomberg did with Firing Line in September is getting renewed attention this week, given his getting into the 2020 Democratic presidential primary race. Margaret Hoover said, “The United States currently accounts for about 15 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. China accounts for roughly 30 percent… Even if we get to net zero, how do you get China, India, and the other countries to be good partners?” Bloomberg said that China “is doing a lot” now and said, “The communist party wants to stay in power in China, and they listen to the public. When the public...

    As of late, The New York Times has cemented itself as the CNN of the newspaper world with a leftist trajectory and near total loss of journalistic integrity. On Monday’s Fox & Friends to discuss this travesty of modern day investigative reporting was former New York Times contributor and current New York Post reporter, Michael Goodwin. As a disclaimer, it should be noted that Goodwin has served as a reporter with the Post for many years and currently writes opinion pieces for Fox News. On the air to discuss his most recent op-ed regarding the collapse of the Times, Goodwin...

    This seems almost too good to be true….p>A few days ago, two polls—Rasmussen and Emerson -- came out showing that black approval for Trump had reached 34%. Now comes confirmation from another poll NPR/PBS Marist, this time aggregating blacks with other racial minorities, and finding an almost identical rate of support of 33%. Sundance provides the results of the poll in a chart: As he notes, “…the Marist poll was 1,224 voters with a 26 percent minority (black and Hispanic) share of the poll – so that’s a significant poll of minority voters. While the Trump economy has dramatically...

    For nearly a decade, Diana Ramirez hadn't been able to take a book home from the San Diego Public Library. Her borrowing privileges were suspended, she was told, because of a mere $10 in late fees, an amount that had grown to $30 over the years. Ramirez, who is now 23 and stays in Tijuana with her mother, attends an alternative education program in San Diego that helps students earn high school diplomas. To her, the debt she owed to the library system was an onerous sum. Even worse, it removed a critical resource from her life. "I felt disappointed...

    A former U.S. Senate candidate's silence on why he dropped out is making a Democratic presence in the Arkansas race unlikely. Speaking with reporters at party headquarters Monday, state Democratic Party Chair Michael John Gray voiced his disappointment. "There are emotions all across the range of them of the frustration that at this point it does not look like there will be a Democratic candidate on the ballot," Gray said.

    In an insightful segment during Monday’s NBC Nightly News, the network actually seemed to approach protecting schools from shooters with an open mind. Correspondent Gadi Schwartz joined a group of school teachers in Spanish Fort, Utah as they underwent firearms training with the local sheriff’s department, a new program they were running. “Just days after yet another school shooting in America, tonight we want to show you teachers training for a life or death confrontation in the classroom,” anchor Lester Holt declared as the video portion on the segment began. “NBC's Gadi Schwartz on the internal struggle the teachers face.”...

    On Wednesday, South Park illustrated the absurdity of allowing men who identify as women into female athletic competitions, in a way only South Park can, in the episode titled "Strong Woman." PC Principal's girlfriend and mother of his PC Babies, Vice Principal Strong Woman, sought to defend her title at the Strong Woman Competition, but not all went as planned when a trans athlete in the mold of former WWF wrestler Macho Man joined in and beat up on the competition: Perry: Now, this is the first year that a trans woman is in the competition.

    Over 250 news outlets and journalists partnered with Columbia University School of Journalism’s flagship magazine to shape control of “climate crisis” coverage in the lead up to the United Nations climate conference. The coverage-coordination initiative included directing how much time, space and prominence should be devoted to the coverage, and asking that climate “news” be added to seemingly unrelated stories. Some of the biggest media outlets in the country, such as CBS and Bloomberg, joined the effort. But others, such as The Washington Post and The New York Times, declined to participate in a project they reportedly feared appeared activist...

    Democrat Sen. Mark Warner (VA) said during an interview this week that President Donald Trump deserves credit for allowing the United States to “punch back” at and use its “offensive capabilities” against Russia’s cyber attacks. He also noted that Trump has made it a lot easier to take action against Russia than former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Warner, the vice chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, made the remarks on PBS’s “Firing Line with Margaret Hoover,” which aired on Friday. “There are two main issues: There is the integrity of the election infrastructure, and then there’s the...
  • As “America The Great” Fights; Trump-Hatred Soars

    11/11/2019 12:05:05 PM PST · by Liberty7732 · 20 replies
    It’s often said by conservative voices that Trump hatred is not about Trump, it’s about you! (Meaning Trump supporters.) That’s partially true. Trump haters certainly do hate his supporters, too. But it goes much deeper than that. Trump haters despise an America that sits atop the world economically, militarily and morally — particularly morally. They scoff at the idea of a bright shining city on a hill. And that means that this battle right now, today, is far bigger than Donald Trump, although he is an avatar for it. This battle is about whether America remains America — or the...

    ...The View is just CNN and MSNBC by another name. It is the television version of the NYT and the WaPo, neither of which is a reputable news provider. Like Bill Maher's show, it is only about one thing now: destroy President Trump. These Trump-deranged TV celebs do not care that Trump has managed to reduce unemployment to the lowest on record, that wages are up across the board, that ISIS has been defeated. They loathe him because he is the most successful President since Reagan on every level, despite their attempts to thwart him every step of the way....

    On Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, delivered two flat-out lies in one 16-minute interview with PBS. Biden falsely claimed that wages are stagnant and that he did not know his son Hunter Biden was on the board of Burisma Holdings."We're now in a position where — you know — wages are stagnant," Biden told PBS News's Judy Woodruff.In fact, wages have grown by almost 3 percent in the past three years. According to the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report, "Wages and salaries increased 2.9 percent for...

    “It seems like Republicans and Democrats are intractable,” said Mark Updegrove, a presidential historian and chairman of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Foundation. “They are both adhering to their own versions of reality, whether they’re based in truth or not.” [snip] The biggest known unknown for both parties may be how the ongoing impeachment proceedings will be viewed by Americans one year from now. [snip] Updegrove, the presidential historian, said the question a year from now will be whether that matters. “If not, what will matter to the American people as a whole?” he asked. “Is there anything?”

    A national group called Republicans for the Rule of Law is running ads aimed at moving Sen. Lisa Murkowski off the sidelines. They want her to criticize President Trump for asking Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden. But both of Alaska’s senators have said they see shades of grey in the Ukraine picture. This ad is showing up in Alaskans’ Facebook feeds. It’s focused, of course, on that call this summer, when Trump leaned on the Ukrainian president for an investigation of the Bidens. “We think she will be receptive to the message,” said Chris Truax, a San Diego attorney who...

    On Wednesday, both NBC’s 3rd Hour Today show and CBS This Morning engaged in climate change hysteria as they touted dire predictions that huge portions of land around the world would be underwater by 2050 and displace hundreds of millions of people. The network hosts all blindly accepted the warnings as true without pointing out that such wild claims have been made for decades without coming to fruition. “And speaking of climate change, on the flip side of that, too much water actually becoming an issue....rising seas could affect way more people than they previously thought....this is an estimate for...

    In what he said was an unscripted acceptance speech on Sunday night, comedian Dave Chappelle continued his recent campaign against cancel culture—while openly defying a smoking ban and defending the right to bear arms too. Chappelle was fęted on Sunday night in Washington, D.C., as this year's recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, a lifetime achievement award bestowed annually by the Kennedy Center. Known for his irreverent and boundary-pushing sketch comedy show and standup routines, Chappelle has never shied away from an opportunity to eviscerate political correctness for laughs. Sunday's event was no different, according to media...

    Not that anyone had any doubts, but CNN made its stance on the abortion issue crystal clear in the context of an interview by Inside Politics' Judy Woodruff of former U.S. Rep. Tim Roemer of Indiana, who has announced that he is seeking the chairmanship of the DNC. Unusual for a Democrat, Roemer is pro-life. But on the two occasions when that fact arose, Woodruff referred to Roemer not as being "pro-life," but as being "opposed to abortion rights for women." Yet when Woodruff quoted Kate Michelman, former head of NARAL, who condemned Roemer's candidacy, she referred to pro-abortion people...
