    The Washington Post is the latest news organization to settle a defamation lawsuit launched by Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann over its botched coverage of a viral confrontation with a Native American elder that had portrayed the Kentucky teen as the aggressor. Sandmann announced the victory on Twitter. "On 2/19/19, I filed $250M defamation lawsuit against Washington Post. Today, I turned 18 & WaPo settled my lawsuit. Thanks to @ToddMcMurtry & @LLinWood for their advocacy. Thanks to my family & millions of you who have stood your ground by supporting me. I still have more to do," Sandmann...

    Vox Media, the owner of media properties including New York Magazine, The Verge, SBNation and Eater, has informed its worker unions to prepare for company-wide layoffs, according to people familiar with the matter. Vox spoke with union leaders Monday to inform them of their plan to cut staff, said the people, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private. Vox furloughed about 100 employees in April, or 9% of its staff, until July 31 as Covid-19 affected advertising budgets. Many of the furloughed workers who haven’t already taken buyouts will be laid off, according to a person...

    Tuesday’s edition of PBS NewsHour featured a discussion about “the differences in the experiences of black journalists as contrasted with their colleagues.” One of the guests, Los Angeles Times Executive Editor Norman Pearlstine, talked about how “one of the active debates we had over the past week was about the use of the word ‘looting’ to describe the destruction of the property” that has taken place at several riots that have occurred in the wake of the death of George Floyd. Pearlstine went on to talk about how the seemingly innocent term is actually profoundly racist.--- Dorothy Tucker, the President...

    “Shouldn’t the president be fact-checked, especially this president who has made so many false and misleading statements that has put fact-checkers to work across the world?” Acosta asked “These 18,000 false or misleading statements according to the Washington Post, if there’s any president out there we should be fact-checking, or political leader that should be fact-checked, isn’t it President Trump? Aren’t you trying to silence fact-checking by going after Twitter like this?” “If you’re going to get into the fact-checking business, there is no one that should be fact-checked more than the mainstream media that has been continually wrong about...

    Tucker Carlson accused Twitter on Wednesday of "purg[ing]" political viewpoints one day after the social media platform "fact-checked" a tweet by President Trump opposing mail-in voting during elections. The "Tucker Carlson Tonight" host opened his show by "stating the obvious," telling his viewers that Trump tweets "an awful lot, and many wish he wouldn't." "Whether or not it’s politically wise ... Donald Trump has an absolute right as an American to express what he actually thinks, even if every other person on Earth disagreed with him," Carlson said. "When they used to tell you this was a free country ......

    Kayleigh McEnany vs. the Press Isn’t a Fair Fight Although I write about the political media a lot, I don’t consume as much of it as most people might think. The political press in this country is full of tedious, irresponsible idiots, and who needs to subject themselves to that? White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is changing my attitude on that a bit though. McEnany so routinely chides the White House press corps that they’ll probably keep wearing masks long after the coronavirus pandemic is over just to hide their embarrassed faces.Sarah Sanders was good at knocking the press...

    CNN political analyst and Politico writer Ryan Lizza decided during Monday’s briefing to follow girlfriend Olivia Nuzzi from April 27 and ask a snarky question about how many deaths would be acceptable to the White House in terms of President Trump’s reelection prospects. The only difference here was Nuzzi tried to trap Trump whereas Lizza’s verbal grenade was lobbed at White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. And as has been the case during McEnany’s tenure, the reporter in question became incensed.

    Twitter placed a fact-checking label on claims made by the the commander in chief. In a first, a "get the facts" alert now appears underneath tweets sent out by President Trump on Tuesday in which he asserted mail-in ballots will lead to voter fraud. Clicking on the link, which is marked with an exclamation point, leads the user to news articles fact-checking the claim along with Twitter's own summary at the top which states that the president's assertions are "unsubstantiated" according to multiple news outlets. The tweets in question specifically target mail-in ballots being used in California during the coronavirus...

    The National Pulse can reveal that major Western news outlets have been participating in a Chinese Communist Party-run ‘Global Media Summit’ for years, lending the legitimacy of their outlets to CCP propaganda. The organization behind the summit was recently listed as a “foreign agent” by the U.S. government... ...CGTN has existed as a foreign propaganda outlet since 1997, while its parent company CCTV has been around since the 1970s. Even YouTube, owned by Google, demarcates CGTN clips with a disclaimer that reads: “CGTN is funded in whole or in part by the Chinese government”. But that didn’t stop Western media...

    As facts about the Obama administration's spying and leaking are spilling out, media have a brief window of opportunity to salvage some credibility. As new details emerge about the Obama administration’s broad spying-and-leaking campaign against the incoming Trump administration, reporters have a choice to make about whether to cover this story honestly, at long last. There is a brief window of time afforded the media to get the story right. They should take advantage of it.Journalist Lee Smith already noted the seriousness of the problem facing legacy media after the implosion of the Russia collusion conspiracy theory they peddled. “Americans...

    NBC "News" / Comcast ^ | May 14, 2020 | By Marcie Bianco
    What is the difference between liberty and freedom in the eyes of many Americans? Absolutely nothing. And therein lies not only the problem driving the culture war around coronavirus shelter-in-place orders but also arguably the crux of all fronts of America's culture wars, from guns to religion to speech to - now, it seems - haircuts. It is a slippage skillfully leveraged by conservatives. This week in Michigan, armed protesters are heeding the call. But the petulant rallying cries echo across the United States. "Give me liberty or give me death!" - so goes the universal whine, lifted from Patrick...

    The U.S. debate over restrictions for fighting the coronavirus intensified in the last few weeks, as protesters labeled mandatory lockdowns as “tyranny,” while medical workers and health experts cautioned that lifting them too soon risked unleashing a greater disaster. We’ve seen it happen time and again: clambering for attention in our click-driven world, major news outlets cherry-pick sensational stories and dramatize their headlines. This tactic has blown countless news stories out of proportion and COVID-19 isn’t one of them. Americans are skeptical of the news media. A recent Gallup Poll shows that 55% of Americans disapprove of the way the...

    A video showcasing baseless arguments by Dr. Judy Mikovits, including attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci, has been viewed more than eight million times in the past week. In a YouTubevideo, a woman animatedly described an unsubstantiated secret plot by global elites like Bill Gates and Dr. Anthony Fauci to use the coronavirus pandemic to profit and grab political power. In the video, the woman asserted how Dr. Fauci had buried her research about how vaccines can damage people’s immune systems. It is those weakened immune systems, she declared, that have made people susceptible to illnesses like Covid-19. The video, a...

    President Trump was in no mood for gotcha questions during Monday's press conference in the Rose Garden. Trump was first asked by CBS White House correspondent Weijia Jiang why he views the ability to test people for the Wuhan coronavirus as a "global competition" as people in America are "still losing their lives" every day. "You have said many times that the U.S. Is doing far better than any other country when it comes to testing. Why does that matter? Why is it global competition to you if every day Americans are still losing their lives and we are still...

  • Politico Founder: ‘I Want A Coronation’ Of Joe Biden, Not An Investigation Of Rape Allegations

    In a Letter to the Editor to the New York Times, Politico founder Martin Tolchin argued against investigating Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations of Joe Biden, citing fear of losing the 2020 election. Tolchin said he wants “a coronation of Joe Biden,” not an investigation into the former Senate aide’s rape allegations. “I don’t want an investigation. I want a coronation of Joe Biden. Would he make a great president? Unlikely. Would he make a good president? Good enough. Would he make a better president than the present occupant? Absolutely,” Tolchin wrote. Tolchin continued to say he was not interested...

    It seems a number of major US media outlets have financial ties to the Chinese Communist Party, and it shows in their coverage. Despite the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) record of oppression, corporate media outlets are parroting the authoritarian government’s propaganda, even in the midst of an outbreak the CCP worsened through a cover-up. Many of those media outlets have financial ties to Chinese companies with intense oversight from the CCP.“You often see representatives from American companies with financial ties to China naturally become defenders of the CCP’s policies and spreading the CCP’s propaganda,” said Helen Raleigh, an author and...
