    President Donald Trump has now spent almost one-third of his time in office at his own properties and has played more golf than President Obama over the same period. The president has visited one of his properties on 112 days of his presidency, according to a count NBC News updated Wednesday in the midst of Trump's 10-day Christmas vacation at Mar-a-Lago—his private club in Palm Beach. U.S. taxpayers paid $6.6 million in airfare alone this year for Trump’s frequent trips to Mar-a-Lago, according to U.S. Air Force records. Trump also spent part or all of about 40 days at his...

    03/14/2018 6:16:50 AM PDT · by rktman · 20 replies ^ | 3/14/2018 | Tim Graham
    To offer a corporate tribute to a national school walkout for gun-control measures, Viacom -- which owns several major cable networks -- "will suspend regularly scheduled programming for 17 minutes" at 10 am on Wednesday. Liberal student activists will take over MTV's Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat accounts. MTV, VH1, Logo, Comedy Central will have orange (the color of gun violence prevention) logos until the "March for Our Lives" on March 24. Their press release is headlined "Viacom to Support Courageous Youth Activists Who Have Had Enough of Gun Violence." Or one could suggest "Viacom to Stick It to the NRA."

    National Geographic acknowledged on Monday that it covered the world through a racist lens for generations, with its magazine portrayals of bare-breasted women and naive brown-skinned tribesmen as savage, unsophisticated and unintelligent. "We had to own our story to move beyond it," editor-in-chief Susan Goldberg told The Associated Press in an interview about the yellow-bordered magazine's April issue, which is devoted to race.

    ational Geographic has admitted its past reporting on different cultures around the world was racist. The US magazine acknowledged in an editorial that for decades its “coverage was racist”, adding that the only way to rise above its past was to “acknowledge it”. For its upcoming issue, dedicated solely to race and how it “defines, separates, and unites us”, the magazine asked a preeminent historian to examine the publication’s own history.
  • CNN And The Curious Case Of The 'Full Semi-Automatic' Rifle

    02/27/2018 1:50:33 PM PST · by Kaslin · 29 replies ^ | February 27, 2018 | Matt Vespa
    You know there were some who thought the media was actually making steps towards improving their pervasive and appalling ignorance on basic gun facts. Like knowing the difference between automatic and semi-automatic firearms, while also knowing that the latter constitutes the vast majority of guns in America. Semiautomatic is a self-reloading firearm. It fires one round per trigger pull. Once a round is fired, the energy pushes the slide back, ejecting the casing, while the next round in the magazine is pushed up and chambered as the slide comes back. The video below of a Beretta 92 9mm (the gun...
  • CNN's Many Minutes of Second Amendment Hate

    CNN's town hall political takedown of the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment -- in response to the tragic murders at a Florida school -- has been wrongly described by some conservatives as an Orwellian Two Minutes Hate. So, those who called it CNN's Two Minutes Hate should publicly admit how wrong they were. Because it went on for much longer than two minutes, didn't it? It went on and on and on, and from the earliest moments it became clear that this wasn't a reasonable discussion about complicated policy and the Bill of Rights. This was all about...

    Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace has proven time and again to be one of MSNBC’s most outspoken Trump critics. But she outdid herself on Monday when she spent nearly the full hour mocking the President and trash talking Republicans, taking only the occasional break to report the news. The bloodbath began when Wallace mentioned the President’s proclivity for aggressive weekend Tweets. She characterized Trump’s behavior as “this releasing of pressure,” wherein he “rages away at Twitter in his jammies.” Continuing with her imaginative illustration, she inquired:

    Student David Hogg filmed this video while his Florida high school was on lockdown because of an active shooter on campus Feb. 14. "Thousands of people have died from gun violence and it's time to take a stand," Hogg said, citing the need for stronger gun control laws. Seventeen people were killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

    Deutsche Welle ^ | 02.22.2018 | ls/sms (Reuters, AFP)
    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) on Wednesday published a report showing a rise in the number of hate groups operating in the United States during President Donald Trump’s first year in office. The number of hate groups in the US grew to 954, marking a 4 percent increase compared to last year. The report said Trump-inspired groups also provoked a backlash that witnessed a rise in black nationalist groups, such as the Nation of Islam. “President Trump’s first year in office proved to be just as racially divisive as his campaign — but even more consequential,” the report said....

    “Teen Vogue” Columnist Lauren Duca responded to news of Rev. Billy Graham’s death by telling him to, “Have fun in hell, bitch.” Taking to Twitter after news broke that the world-renowned and beloved evangelist had died Wednesday at age 99, Duca mocked Graham’s longevity and hurled her insult: “The big news today is that Billy Graham was still alive this whole time. Anyway, have fun in hell, bitch.” After receiving backlash on Twitter for her hateful irreverence, Duca doubled-down on her comment, declaring that “Respecting the dead” only applies to people who weren’t evil pieces of sh*t while they were...
  • With a Boost from ESPN and NY Daily News, Vulgar LeBron James Rips on Trump Again

    Prodded on by the approving ESPN SportsCenter host Cari Champion, LeBron James delivered his latest installment of attacks on President Trump today. The professional basketball star who tweeted the unprofessional message "u bum" to the president last year, uses his Uninterrupted internet forum to blast Trump as someone who "really don't give a f--- about the people." Zachary Ripple, online sports editor for The New York Daily News, gave James more mileage by posting the video on his site along with a short story. This episode of Uninterrupted, titled "Rolling with the Champion: LeBron James and Kevin Durant," features Champion...

    The Federalist ^ | Feburary 15,2018 | Lee Smith
    This Isn’t the 27-Year-Olds’ Fault I’ve argued over the last year that the phony collusion narrative is a symptom of the structural problems with the press. The rise of the Internet, then social media, and gross corporate mismanagement damaged traditional media institutions. As newspapers and magazines around the country went bankrupt when ownership couldn’t figure out how to make money off the new digital advertising model, an entire generation of journalistic experience, expertise, and ethics was lost. It was replaced, as one Obama White House official famously explained, by 27-year-olds who “literally know nothing.” But the first vehicles of the...

    CNN launched yet another “Facts First” promo, this time reminding President Donald Trump about the collective power of apples. “This is an apple,” CNN’s latest promo begins. “And, this is an apple.” “And this is an apple.” “And when you put them all together, you’ve got a case.” CNN’s latest promo – the network seems to be picking up the pace — comes as news outlets report special counsel Robert Mueller appears to be building a case that President Donald Trump’s interference with the investigation into Russian election meddling constitutes obstruction of justice. One day earlier, CNN, among many other...

    Oh irony of ironies. How beautiful you can be! Less than a week after Univision smeared the Trump tax cuts, the owner of that broadcasting network, Haim Saban, has announced that he will be giving $1000 bonuses to his employees due to those same tax cuts. In fact, as we shall see, Saban very specifically credited those same tax cuts as the reason for the bonuses. To get a full appreciation of the irony involved let us first look at what a Univision anchor said about the Trump tax cuts as reported by the MRC Latino Staff on January 27...

    President Donald Trump again criticized the news media, but this time in Davos, Switzerland, at the World Economic Forum. “It wasn’t until I became a politician that I realized how nasty, how mean, how vicious, and how fake the press can be,” Trump said, as some in the audience booed. He joked that the cameras were “going off in the back” after his comment. One reporter in the room noted that foreign journalists joined the boos from people in the audience. Trump said he used to get great press from the media when he was a celebrity businessman but that...
  • WaPo Staffers Fighting for Better Wages Told to Sit Down, Shut Up, and Be Grateful for Jeff Bezos

    The narrative casting Jeff Bezos as a transformative media baron reached new heights in 2017. His Washington Post consistently set the political agenda while claiming two straight years of profitability. Bezos himself glowed on the red carpet as an improbable journalism hero when Steven Spielberg’s The Post, a fictionalized account of the newspaper’s publication of The Pentagon Papers, opened in December. Bezos is worth $111 billion. He is the richest man in the world. But over the past eight months, his prized media outlet has repeatedly stymied requests for better pay and benefits from the employees who’ve driven its renaissance....

    In his relentless efforts to demonize the press, Trump capitalized on a media landscape degraded by partisanship and media outlets emphasizing spin at the expense of substance. Donald Trump’s first year in office is drawing to a close, but his war on the media is not. It’s tempting to think we’ve been here before. Every president has considered himself the victim of skewed reporting and baseless slanders, and more than a few distrusted, denounced, and despised the press corps. In fact, most other presidents—including Barack Obama for his liberal Espionage Act prosecutions, and George W. Bush for his White...

Talk about the bias they exhibit. one reporter retweeted someone's F bomb tweet. And they attack Trump for saying less. Can't post any pics now, but will try to do so later. I make this thread so you all can share your thoughts. See how biased even the local media is. Not good.

    When truck driver Chris Gromek wants to know what’s really going on in Washington, he scans the internet and satellite radio. He no longer flips TV channels because networks such as Fox News and MSNBC deliver conflicting accounts tainted by politics, he says. “Where is the truth?” asks the 47-year-old North Carolina resident. Answering that question accurately is a cornerstone of any functioning democracy, according to none other than Thomas Jefferson. But a year into Donald Trump’s fact-bending, media-bashing presidency, Americans are increasingly confused about who can be trusted to tell them reliably what their government and their commander in...

    Republican strategists have turned decidedly pessimistic about their prospects for the 2018 midterm elections. Prominent Republicans are now saying privately that Democrats are virtually certain to win control of the House of Representatives. As one senior Republican on Capitol Hill told ABC News, “If the election were held today, the House would be gone. Fortunately, the election is not today.” Another prominent Republican strategist working on the midterm elections went further, telling ABC News point-blank that Republicans will lose the House and that this prospect unlikely to change. “The only question is whether Democrats win narrowly by picking up 25...
