  • Trump's 100 Days of Media Hostility

    The time has come for the media to pull out the artificial measuring stick of 100 days to evaluate President Trump. If they're kind, he'll get an I for "incomplete." But it's more likely they'll use other I words like "inability," "incompetence" or "incoherence." Whatever they say, it won't be kind. But eight years ago? Time magazine's Joe Klein graded President Obama with an S for "spectacular" and "stupendous," saying, "The legislative achievements have been stupendous -- the $789 billion stimulus bill, the budget plan that is still being hammered out (and may, ultimately, include the next landmark safety-net...
  • Sean Hannity: Media's blindness to Obama spy scandal shameful

    A scandal of historic and monumental proportions began with a tweet just over one month ago. "Terrible,” President Trump wrote on March 4. “Just found out that Obama had (ph) 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!" That tweet sent the mainstream, alt-left, hate-Trump media into an all- out frenzy. For the next several days, instead of investigating the president's serious claim, they mocked, ridiculed and bashed the president.
  • CNN quick to declare Obama innocent of wiretapping accusation — but Twitter says ‘not so fast’

    President Donald Trump on Saturday accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower in the latter stages of last year’s presidential campaign. A spokesman for Obama was quick to deny the accusations, while congressmen and women have vowed to get to the bottom of the accusations. Either way, it’s hard for anyone at this point to make a determination either way whether or not Trump’s accusations against Obama are true or full of hot air. However, that didn’t stop CNN on Saturday from fully declaring Obama’s innocence. Running a story about Trump’s claims Saturday, CNN declared: “Trump falsely accuses...

    To hear the amount of consternation coming from the cable news community you’d think that the United States was about to invade Canada. Shock waves are roiling the press over President Trump’s Twitter announcement saying that he would not be attending this year’s White House Correspondents Dinner. Could this be the end of Nerd Prom? (The Hill) President Trump announced Saturday he will not be attending this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, which is usually attended by the president.“I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year.

    The inevitable conflict between the mainstream media and Donald Trump has come to boil just four weeks into his presidency. The media are beside themselves that someone would castigate them at every opportunity and use hyperbole such as “enemy of the American people” and purveyors of “very fake news” to get under their skin, as their narcissism and sense of self-importance knows no bounds. They fail to understand why they are held in such disregard -- polling has revealed only 32% of Americans trust the media (down from 55% in 2000) and why so many cheer Trump’s visceral attacks. Over...

    President Trump is getting quite a bit of blow back for saying the fake news media is the enemy of the American people. And most of the blow back is coming from the fake news media."The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!" he tweeted. As you might imagine, the folks with blemish-free skin and perfectly coiffed hair accused the president of being some sort of tin pot dictator -- trying to silence and intimidate the press.Former Washington Post reporter described the president's tweet using words like "authoritarian" and "dangerous" and...

    The sequel to that stupid mommy porn bondage movie is now in theaters, giving naughty thrills to bored housewives whose liberal husbands can’t cut it manwise, but the real festival of S&M was in the White House as President Trump unleashed his iron discipline on the media. Call it Fifty Shades of Orange. It wasn’t a press conference – it was a kinky dungeon session where masochistic journalists eagerly sought out the delicious pain Master T was dealing. Hack after hack stepped up, tried to play “gotcha.” and ended up whimpering in the fetal position. The best part was...

    The liberal media have awakened from their eight years of slumber. The Trump presidency has turned dozing Obama lapdogs into insanely rabid Trump attack dogs. Over the past few weeks, the media has been involved in a feeding frenzy trying to harm the new administration by focusing on one “fake news” scandal after another. The most recent controversy involves the resignation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and his conversations with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States during the transition period for the Trump administration. In these discussions, there was a mention of the new U.S....

    Megyn Kelly, who arrived at Fox News 12 years ago as a television news neophyte but rose to become one of its two biggest stars, has decided to leave the network to take on a broad new role at NBC News for an undisclosed amount, people briefed on the negotiations said on Tuesday. The NBC News chairman, Andrew Lack, wooed Ms. Kelly away from Fox News by offering her a triple role in which she will host her own daytime news and discussion program, anchor an in-depth Sunday night news show and take regular part in the network’s special political...

    The least-shocking, long-rumored departure in cable news seems that it is about to happen. The still-dominant Fox News Channel has been through a lot of changes in the past several months, most notably saying good-bye to the man who made it a ratings powerhouse. Now, according to The New York Times it appears that FNC is losing one of its biggest stars:

    As there is an incessant crescendo, still gaining in volume each week, about President Obama’s “legacy,” I thought it appropriate to try to identify this legacy, which his supporters believe history will honor. I have written here and elsewhere that, apart from breaking the color barrier and disposing of bin Laden, I am hard pressed to think of anything useful in his legacy. Never have I been an Obama hater or someone who disputed his patriotism. I do think that Mr. Obama is rather subdued about the tired pieties of “American exceptionalism” and that this is not unjustified given his...

    The People's Repudiation Of Media Influence Thus, despite the media's best efforts to defeat Trump through a barrage of negative news stories, most Americans appeared not to be swayed by media coverage. Election Day provided the most definitive proof of both the media's bias against Trump and the people's repudiation of its attempts to influence the election narrative. Heading into the day of the vote, most news outlets were confident that Clinton would become the 45th president of the United States, as they pointed to poll after poll showing the former secretary of state comfortably leading Trump. This coverage seemed...

    American Thinker ^ | November 18, 2016 | Daniel John Sobieski
    The mainstream media, having failed to derail or even anticipate Donald Trump’s victory, have now seized on discrediting one of the architects of his victory, calling Navy veteran, entrepreneur, and Breitbart publisher Steve Bannon a “white nationalist”. They cite as evidence some Breitbart headlines designed to provoke and attract readers as being beyond the pale. Compared to what? The New York Times, perhaps? Publishers don’t necessarily control every jot and tittle of content in their publications, but if one concedes the point of Bannon’s critics, those who have problems with Bannon advising Trump had no problem with race-baiter Al Sharpton...

    (NaturalNews) As I'm asking myself when I'm going to return Natural News to its usual format of covering health, nutrition and disease prevention, I'm struck by the realization that the left wing media is now the single greatest cause of psychological stress and mental illness in America. While Hillary Clinton's campaign slogan was "Stronger Together," the mainstream media has decided to pursue a campaign of division, sabotage and hate. It is unacceptable. It must be stopped. It's now obvious to me that America cannot HEAL until we stop the left wing media HATE machine. The same media outlets that heaped...

    There’s a place for opinionated journalism; in fact, it’s vital. But our causal, profession-wide smugness and protestations of superiority are making us unable to do it well. Our theme now should be humility. We must become more impartial, not less so. We have to abandon our easy culture of tantrums and recrimination. We have to stop writing these know-it-all, 140-character sermons on social media and admit that, as a class, journalists have a shamefully limited understanding of the country we cover. What’s worse, we don’t make much of an effort to really understand, and with too few exceptions, treat the...

See, thereÂ’s some good news out there if you just look for it.At this writing, it still looks like Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit will convince enough morons to vote for her to defeat Donald Trump, but who the hell knows? The polls are tightening, my book remains eerily prescient, and in Hades they are getting out the mittens. So whatÂ’s next from our disgraced media drones as they face the possible repudiation of every libfascist thing...

    NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd has a wife who’s active in Democratic Party strategic communications, and sometimes donates to Democrats. In 2012, Kristian Denny Todd contributed $2,500 to Sen. Tim Kaine. Todd never felt any need to disclose this during his three recent Kaine interviews on NBC (August 7, September 18, and October 23). But Maverick Mail & Strategies, the firm Mrs. Todd founded in 2007 with fellow James Webb aides Steve Jarding and Jessica Vanden Berg, did heavy lifting for openly socialist Bernie Sanders for President this year. Open Secrets shows a bill for $1.992 million made...

    NBC seems to have gone out of the news business. The network has been remarkably shy about reporting on the massive amount of e-mails being released through WikiLeaks, but more than willing to give time to anyone who says anything bad about Trump. Competitor CBS, on the other hand, seems to be dividing up with time equally into a “Bad Donald, Bad Hillary” segment. NBC, of course, is the network that employs John Harwood, a CNBC correspondent who sent love notes to the Clinton campaign and even generously offered his advice. I hope Harwood was auditioning for a job with...
