IN this article, we’ll show you exactly where the lies come from and look at why such a poll was first conducted. The poll was carried out by on the 1st and 2nd of December last year and their results show that ABC, CBS, WSY, NYT and CNN are among the “most credible news sources” in the US.

  • Poll Finds Black Lives Matter Misreads African-Americans’ Attitudes Toward Police(WHAT?)

    A new poll undercuts one of the foundational principles of the Black Lives Matter movement, which views police as antagonists of black Americans. The Aug. 31 Marquette University Law School poll found that while there were differences in how whites and non-whites view police, majorities in both demographic groups support law enforcement. The poll of 803 registered Wisconsin voters came days after civil unrest in Milwaukee that followed the police shooting of a black man. In that case, 23-year-old Sylville Smith was shot dead after he ran from officers and pulled a gun, with officials saying the body cameras worn...

    International news agency Associated Press (AP) has been accused of anti-Israel bias before, but this time the agency has surpassed even itself in reporting the Jerusalem terror attack in which 3-month-old Chaya Zisel Braun was murdered.

    Officials in China this week examined the anuses of 10,000 pigeons that were set to be released today in celebration of National Day, amid government fears of a possible terrorist attack. According to reports from state-run media outlets, the birds had their feathers, legs, and anuses searched for "suspicious objects" yesterday, before being packed onto a truck and sent to Tiananmen Square in Beijing for today's ceremony. Many reports on the probe disappeared from China's tightly-controlled media after being published, though some articles and tweets remain online. The entire process was reportedly videotaped.

She said they decided to rear it along with their cattle....
