  • Pollak: The Attack on Trump Is Exactly What a Russian Disinformation Campaign Looks Like

    Breitbart ^ | 5/28/17 | Joel B. Pollak
    The accusation that President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with the Russians, and that he is trying to cover it up, looks increasingly like a classic Russian disinformation campaign — one designed to bring down the only president since the Cold War who has actually been willing to confront Russia in any meaningful way. It is an article of faith on the left that Russia wanted Trump to win the election because Vladimir Putin anticipated a more pliant approach, signaled by Trump’s explicit desire to negotiate a better relationship. But the Russians may just as well have preferred Hillary Clinton,...

    Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum. According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll, which was provided exclusively to The Hill, 65 percent of voters believe there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media. That number includes 80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats. Eighty-four percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online. “Much of the media is now just another part of the...

    MSNBC finally overtook Fox News Channel — and left CNN in the dust. Officials at the once third place cable news network were crowing Monday about winning last week’s primetime ratings race for the first time. Led by Rachel Maddow, the left-skewing primetime schedule beat Fox’s revamped Bill O’Reilly-less lineup for the first time, a humiliating loss for Tucker Carlson, “The Five” and Sean Hannity, according to the latest Nielsen numbers. For the week, Monday through Friday when people are paying the most attention to the big name TV hosts who go head-to-head on cable news, MSNBC won across the...

    The photos and the video and the sounds have become all too familiar. A flash of light – a massive explosion – horrified screams of the dying and wounded. This time in Manchester, England – at a concert filled with young teenagers and their parents. What was supposed to be a night of music and dancing and childhood frivolity – ended in carnage. "Horrific, horrific injuries. Terrible," President Trump said. "Dozens of innocent people, beautiful young children savagely murdered in this heinous attack upon humanity." An untold number of children and their parents were massacred by Islamic radicals - killed...
  • Question: Can we start calling the media "McCarthyites"?

    I am not trying to debate Joe McCarthy's place in history. Thanks to Ann Coulter's book "Treason", I know he did a lot of good work. Nevertheless, his name has become associated with fearmongering. I think in that respect, the time might be right to start speaking to the #fakenews and #fakejournalists those words "Have you no decency?" Rachel MadMcCarthy, Scott PelMcCarthey, Andrea MitchMcCarthey, etc. Are we at that point, fellow FREEPers?

    It was refreshing to see President Trump speak to the leaders of the Muslim countries in Riyadh honestly and directly about the problems of Islamist terrorism. He told them in plain words that they have to drive out the terrorists from their mosques and countries. He reminded them that terrorists, such as ISIS, kill more Muslims than others. President Trump spoke bluntly. The Muslim countries must take care of the terrorists: “It is a choice between two futures -- and it is a choice America CANNOT make for you. A better future is only possible if your nations drive out...

    Journalists’ brains show a lower-than-average level of executive functioning, according to a new study, which means they have a below-average ability to regulate their emotions, suppress biases, solve complex problems, switch between tasks, and show creative and flexible thinking. The study, led by Tara Swart, a neuroscientist and leadership coach, analyzed 40 journalists from newspapers, magazines, broadcast, and online platforms over seven months. The participants took part in tests related to their lifestyle, health, and behavior. It was launched in association with the London Press Club, and the objective was to determine how journalists can thrive under stress. Each subject...

    President Donald Trump suggested Friday morning that he might cancel the daily White House briefing. That's not a bad idea. "As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!" Trump tweeted. "Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future 'press briefings' and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???" Putting aside the president's claim his spokespersons are untrustworthy, ignoring his odd use of quotation marks around "press briefing" and ignoring his ridiculous reasoning (the White House's written statement on...

    Savannah Morning News ^ | May 10, 2017 | By DAVID BAUDER AP Television Writer
    In the opening days of the Trump administration, Democrats are far more interested than Republicans in seeing the news media assume the traditional role of watchdogs to people in power, a survey released on Wednesday found. The Pew Research Center poll found that 89 percent of Democrats judged media criticism worth it because it keeps political leaders from doing things they shouldn’t, while only 42 percent of Republicans felt that way. With Democrats out of power, “they see the media as the last line of defense,” said Tim Graham, director of media analysis at the conservative Media Research Center. At...

    Human shield. We love Tim Tebow here - even if he does play in the Mets organization - and we’re always happy to hear that something positive has happened in his career and in his life. So when ESPN re-upped with Tebow on his deal to be part of its college football studio offerings, we were nothing if not pleased. If Tebow wants to do TV while pursuing his baseball dreams, we’re all over it. But we couldn’t help but wonder: Does ESPN usually make such a big deal out of an existing talent re-signing? Because if one were inclined...

    A decline in subscribers and higher programming costs at cash-cow ESPN weighed on shares of Walt Disney Co (DIS.N) on Tuesday, overshadowing a quarterly profit that topped Wall Street estimates. Investors have been closely watching how ESPN navigates the shakeup in television as viewers defect from traditional pay TV services and online services proliferate. Chief Executive Bob Iger told analysts that Disney added customers on new digital platforms, but not enough to make up for subscriber losses from expanded basic cable packages. Shares of the world's biggest entertainment company dropped 2.4 percent in after-hours trading.

    As Fox News Sidles Left, Sinclair Broadcasting Moves In Broadcasters you likely never heard of are possibly attempting to move in on Fox News and take some of their conservative viewership. Fox News has potential competition from another right-leaning media network. Sinclair Broadcasting is buying up 42 of Tribune Media’s broadcast stations for nearly $4 billion dollars, raising speculation that the conglomerate is prepared to compete with Fox News for their Republican and Libertarian audience. With Tribune’s 42 TV stations, Sinclair will cover more than 70 percent of households in the United States. It will become the largest local broadcast...

    When did the word “optics” enter the political lexicon? In any case, the Morning Joe crew today ripped the look of the Republican Rose Garden ceremony of yesterday at which President Trump and House members celebrated the passage of their health care bill. Donny Deutsch said they were “a bunch of fat, middle-aged, rich white guys.” When Willie Geist mentioned that Mika had said that the photo looked like a golf course ribbon cutting, Joe Scarborough interjected: “it’s a country club with restrictive membership. Obviously, you have to be white, and a male, to be there.” View the video here.
  • Daily newspaper columnist who defended NRA quits after suspension

    A conservative columnist who was suspended by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch after she defended the National Rifle Association from comparisons to ISIS fired back with her resignation and a series of targeted tweets. The newspaper on Friday suspended Stacy Washington after a column entitled "Guns and the Media" disputed an anti-NRA article that argued since more Americans die from guns than from ISIS, the Second Amendment advocacy group is the greater danger. “[W]hen has a member of the NRA ever decapitated, set on fire, tossed from a rooftop or otherwise terrorized another American? The linkage is not only rife with...

    Here’s the 1996 clip from “Bill Nye the Science Guy” which is currently being censored on Netflix During the original 1996 broadcast of the “Probability” episode of the TV program “Bill Nye the Science Guy,” there was a segment that explained how a person’s gender is determined by genetics.In 2017, Netflix aired a version of this episode in which this segment had been removed.I don’t know if it was Netflix, Nye himself, or some other party that instigated this censorship.Since YouTube has a nasty habit of removing politically incorrect videos, I’m including links to four videos, all of which have the...

    When uploaded to Netflix, an episode of the educational children's show "Bill Nye the Science Guy" cut out a segment saying that chromosomes determine one's gender. In the original episode, titled "Probability," a young woman told viewers, "I'm a girl. Could have just as easily been a boy, though, because the probability of becoming a girl is always 1 in 2." "See, inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl, " the young woman continued. "See, there are only two possibilities: XX, a girl, or XY, a...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | May 3, 2017
    Last week, ESPN, often referred to as the Worldwide Leader in Sports, laid off around 100 employees. The cuts were painfully public and claimed the jobs of some of the top talent and most familiar faces at the network. At the heart of the latest downsizing, as with earlier layoffs, is math: The network has committed billions of dollars to broadcast live sports, and waves of cord-cutters now threaten the cash flow to pay those bills. But amid the hand-wringing over the cable giant’s business outlook, a subplot has begun to dominate the coverage: ESPN’S politics. . . For several...

    Twitter went wild on Monday morning over President Trump’s comments in praise of slave owner Andrew Jackson, and his declaration that the seventh president of the United States would have prevented the Civil War. “Why was there the Civil War?” Trump even asked. Jackson died 16 years before the Civil War started. His term as president ended 24 years before the war kicked off.
