  • Sharyl Attkisson and "Smear" at 9:00 PM and Midnight EDT on C-Span2

    07/23/2017 4:40:38 PM PDT · by Intolerant in NJ · 11 replies
    C-Span2 | 2 July, 2017 | Intolerant in NJ
    Sharyl Attkisson will be the guest discussing her book "Smear" on C-Span2's "After Words" tonight at 9 and midnight EDT. Attkisson was a journalist for CBS who resigned a few years back because she felt her reporting was being micromanaged and shaped by management there. Her book looks at how journalists use false and misleading information to push their agendas instead of reporting the story. Attkisson does not define a "smear" as necessarily being untrue, but rather as being a story which is amplified beyond it's normal importance and having an underlying political or financial agenda which is not revealed...

    So the real story is that CNN, which has thrown in with Al Jazeera, is the new tag team that will be going after the POTUS full force Reddit should be smelling a big rat by now. The stench is coming from something even more putrid than Fake News Central CNN trying to hide under the rug on their blackmail attempts against the Reddit user behind the gif of President Trump wrestling a CNN image superimposed on WWE founder Vince McMahon.
  • This NYC high school has a big grade-fixing problem

    NY Post ^ | July 1, 2017 | Susan Edelman
    Grade-fixing is alive and well in NYC schools as administrators come up with tricky new ways to inflate their graduation rates — and few of the hundreds of cheating complaints ever get investigated. The latest scandal erupted at the Secondary School for Journalism in Brooklyn when a student who had cut a required English class dozens of times and got the lowest failing grade, a 45, walked on stage in a white cap and gown to get his diploma — even after a whistle-blowing teacher cried foul. Principal Marc Williams did not simply change the student’s grade in the class...

    But now the Post reports, with a front page calling CNN “The Most Busted Name in News” that it was the threat of an eye-watering $100 million lawsuit from Anthony Scaramucci — a Trump ally named in the CNN hit job — that forced the network’s hand into pulling the report. The paper reported that CNN top-dogs feared that a major lawsuit could put a pending media merger with AT&T, currently being examined by the Justice Department, in doubt. advertisement “The cable network’s coverage of Trump transition team member Anthony Scaramucci came amid federal scrutiny of corporate parent Time Warner’s...

    Flush with cash, political groups outside the White House are aggressively coming to President Donald Trump's aid as he battles low public approval numbers, questions about his election campaign's ties to Russia and a stalled legislative agenda. Through television attack ads and online campaigns normally seen only during the tumult of an election, the groups are helping Trump to strike back against his perceived enemies and boost his agenda, adding to the firepower of his Twitter account and the bully pulpit of the White House. On Tuesday, one of the groups, America First Policies, launched an attack ad against a...

    I’ve been a journalist for a long time. Long enough to know that it wasn’t always like this. There was a time not so long ago when journalists were trusted and admired. We were generally seen as trying to report the news in a fair and straightforward manner. Today, all that has changed. For that, we can blame the 2016 election or, more accurately, how some news organizations chose to cover it.

    The Global Dispatch ^ | June 22, 2017 | Roxanne "Butter" Bracco
    During an interview on Sean Hannity’s radio show yesterday, Camille Paglia destroyed Democrats, the media and journalists for their collusion and bias against Republicans and President Trump. “It’s obscene,” Pagilia said. “It’s outrageous, OK? It shows that the Democrats are nothing now but words and fantasy and hallucination and Hollywood. There’s no journalism left. What’s happened to The New York Times? What’s happened to the major networks? It’s an outrage.” Paglia called what she said the Democratic Party had done to journalism “absolutely grotesque” and warned it would take decades to recover. “I’m a professor of media studies, in addition...

    Received the free bi-monthly Hillsdale College Imprimis and found an excellent story by Michael Goodwin, columnist for the New York Post, entitled: The 2016 Election and the Demise of Journalistic Standards. In the story, Goodwin, former NYT reporter himself, is pretty frank about how low the New York Times sank during the 2016 election: "If I haven't made it clear, let me do so now. The behavior of much of the media, but especially the New York Times was a disgrace. I don't believe it ever will recover the public trust it squandered." However, Goodwin harks back to a...

    Philos Project ^ | June 19, 2017 | Uzay Bulut
    Today, 167 journalists languish in Turkish jails, a figure reported by Turkey’s Platform for Independent Journalism (P24). Many TV stations, news agencies, newspapers, magazines, radio stations and publishing houses have also been shut down under state of emergency decrees since last year’s abortive coup.But pressures against the media is not a recent phenomenon in Turkey. It would not be an overstatement to say that since Turkey’s 1923 founding, violent as well as non-violent attacks against newspapers and journalists have been the norm in the country.Many Turks – including journalists – have recently been trying to get away from the pressures...

    Reuters ^ | June 7, 2017 | By Rodrigo Campos
    U.S. stocks rose on Wednesday despite a sharp decline in energy shares after written testimony from former FBI director James Comey did not add major revelations about an investigation into Russian meddling with last year's U.S. presidential election. Comey, who was fired by Trump last month, wrote that U.S. President Donald Trump asked him to drop an investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. But the details of Comey's testimony, expected to be delivered Thursday to a Senate Committee, appeared to be priced into the stock market. Investors were concerned that any additional revelation could dampen already flagging momentum...

    Scott Pelley is out at “CBS Evening News,” Page Six has exclusively learned. Sources tell us that ‘Poison Pelley’s’ office was being cleared out on Tuesday while the anchor was away on an assignment for the network’s news magazine “60 Minutes.” Insiders tell us that CBS News president David Rhodes “is making [Pelley] move to ‘60 Minutes,’ ” and that the pair “don’t get on.” Another TV insider said while Pelley’s ratings have been down, “There’s also been friction between him and [Rhodes].”

    Camille Paglia is much more worried about the media than about the steady string of Trump-related scandals they claim to be uncovering. In a Tuesday interview with the Washington Examiner, Paglia excoriated the press for its coverage of Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey and his alleged sharing of classified information with Russian officials. Fresh off a spirited panel with Christina Hoff Sommers hosted by the Independent Women's Forum, the iconic feminist dissident, who serves as a professor of media studies at the University of the Arts, accused journalists of colluding with the Democratic Party in an effort...

    If you are a person of a certain age, it's odd to drive down a major artery of a large metropolitan American city and strain to find a newspaper box at any of the crossroads. That's especially true in a city such as Detroit that has a storied history of competitive journalism that dug deep into holding power in check, whether it was city hall, the unions or large corporations. It's not that those papers are gone. The lack of boxes is partly because of contractual delivery systems and partly because of vandalism. But it's mostly because we consume...
  • There’s Something Fundamentally Wrong With Liberals

    05/21/2017 4:51:58 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 27 replies ^ | May 2017 | Derek Hunter
    That liberals are hypocrites is not news. Just take a look at the net worth of any Democratic Party leader who routinely rails against the “1 percent.” But in the age of Trump, where the hatred that normally drives what we’re told is the “tolerant” left has been turned up to 11. All standards have gone out the window; no hypocrisy is too great, no conspiracy theory too insane for someone on the left to advance it and its drone army to believe. It must be easy to be a liberal in 2017. You don’t have to think for yourself....

    When President Donald Trump sits down for dinner in Saudi Arabia, caterers have ensured that his favorite meal - steak with a side of ketchup - will be offered alongside the traditional local cuisine. At NATO and the Group of 7 summits, foreign delegations have gotten word that the new U.S. president prefers short presentations and lots of visual aids. And at all of Trump's five stops on his first overseas trip, his team has spent weeks trying to build daily downtime into his otherwise jam-packed schedule. It's all part of a worldwide effort to accommodate America's homebody president on...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation. He said in his written recusal released on March 2. "Having concluded those meetings today, I have decided to recuse myself from any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for President of the United States." Any existing or future investigations. Related in any way. Sessions consulted with the president and coordinated the firing of James Comey. Recall that Comey had testified on March 20 that he was heading the Russia investigation: "I've been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that...

    On February 17, 2017, President Donald Trump created a firestorm of controversy when he tweeted that the news media (The New York Times, CNN, NBC, and many more) is not his enemy, but is the enemy of the American people. In scrutinizing the Times, in relation to the culture war and major issues within the public square, the indictment, though I have many differences with the president, rings true for me, because, the vast majority of the time, I find myself on one side of an issue and theyÂ’re on the other.And, more than that, there is an overall historical...
