    The New York Times suddenly made a major revision to a supposed bombshell piece late Sunday concerning a resurfaced allegation of sexual assault by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — hours after virtually all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates had cited the original article as a reason to impeach Kavanaugh. The update included the significant detail that several friends of the alleged victim said she did not recall the purported sexual assault in question at all. The Times also stated for the first time that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed, and has made no comment about the episode.

    <p>The Drudge Report, once a go-to site for Trumpism, now seems unapologetically anti-Trump, in its often trademark snarky style.</p> <p>Are Trump supporters then weary?</p> <p>The August jobs report “unexpectedly” reminds us that never have so many Americans been at work. The 3.7 percent unemployment rate continues to be the lowest peacetime unemployment figure in 50 years. Black and Hispanic unemployment remain at record lows. Workers’ wages continue to rise. Talk of recession is belied by low interest, low inflation, low unemployment, and a strong stock market. The result is that millions of Americans enjoy far better lives than they had in 2016.</p>

    The Washington Post is closing down its free daily commuter paper, Express, this week. The final edition of Express will be published on Thursday. The staff learned of the news at a meeting at noon on Wednesday. In a post on its public relations blog, WaPo said that the growth of WiFi in D.C.’s Metro is partially the cause for the closure: “More and more readers are consuming The Post’s content digitally, and The Post will continue to serve those who commute via Metro with digital products, including its mobile site, apps, newsletters, and podcasts.” (Earlier this year, WaPo partnered...
  • The Fed can’t rescue us from the coming supply-shock recession

    MarketWatch ^ | 08/24/2019 | Nouriel Roubini
    There are three negative supply shocks that could trigger a global recession by 2020. All of them reflect political factors affecting international relations, two involve China, and the United States is at the center of each. Moreover, none of them is amenable to the traditional tools of countercyclical macroeconomic policy. The first potential shock stems from the Sino-American trade and currency war, which escalated earlier this month when President Donald Trump’s administration threatened additional tariffs on Chinese exports, and formally labeled China a currency manipulator. The second concerns the slow-brewing cold war between the U.S. and China over technology. In...

    Republican Rep. Paul Gosar is a conspiracy theorist who pals around with bigots and hate groups. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) promoted a nonsensical conspiracy theory Monday, in which he accused the FBI of being part of an elaborate plot as part of an attack against America. "I have a tip," he wrote on Twitter. "I think high level FBI agents may have colluded with British agents and Democrat operatives to initiate an illegal coup against @realDonaldTrump and @POTUS. I mean at least this bears a cursory review." The conspiracy theorizing echoes months of Fox News and Trump defenders in Congress...

    The combined company would have more than 260 daily papers in the United States, along with more than 300 weeklies. It would be the largest U.S. newspaper company ... the U.S. has lost almost 1,800 local newspapers since 2004. Newsroom employment fell by a quarter from 2008 to 2018, according to Pew Research, and layoffs have continued this year. Both GateHouse and Gannett are known as buyers of other papers. Bulking up lets companies cut costs — including layoffs in newsrooms — and centralize operations. ... GateHouse’s owner, New Media, is taking on new debt to get the deal done...

    The liberal media is the arm of the Democratic Party and its agenda. That’s no secret, but if they think they can get away with what they’re doing with the Dayton shooting—they’re arrogance (or stupidity) has reached unprecedented levels. I mean there have been pretty explicit examples, but they there have been consistent ‘hold my beer’ moments, as the various arms of this corrupt enterprise seem to out-do one another in displaying said bias. In less than 24 hours, we had two brutal mass shootings. In all, 31 people have been killed and scores more injured. In El Paso, Texas, and...

    Well, remember Brian Karem? He’s the White House Correspondent for Playboy. He’s also a CNN contributor. Former Special Assistant to the President and current Salem Radio Host Dr. Sebastian Gorka confronted him at a presser in the Rose Garden. He’s been called one of the biggest pigs of the press corps, known for his combative style with the press secretaries of the Trump White House. He likened Trump voters to the Nazi Party. He said that the attendees of the White House’s social media summit were willing participants of demonic possession. Gorka said that he called the president a “f**king idiot” when...

Yet, we had Dr. Sebastian Gorka, former Special Assistant to President Trump and host of America First on Salem Radio Network, and our own Katie Pavlich as special guests to mark this occasion. We discussed how Iran has been itching for a war with the West, as demonstrated by their seizure of two UK-operated oil tankers.

    CNN and MSNBC have said the word "racist" more than 630 times since Sunday, according to a tally conducted by Grabien Media, an online media production and news prep service. The count, which doesn't include on-screen graphics commonly known as chyrons, comes two days after President Trump in a Sunday tweet said four Democratic congresswomen — all U.S. citizens and members of minority groups — should "go back" to their home countries. Just one of the four Democrats was not born in the United States, and Trump's remarks have been called out as racist by much of the Democratic Party...

    Sunday morning political talk shows have some surprising heritage. It is interesting to note, for example, that NBC’s “Meet the Press” is the nation’s longest running television show, debuting as a half-hour program on Nov. 6, 1947, with serious topics and notable guests — back in the days when anchors spoke in the voice of doom, with an intense demeanor. CBS’s “Face the Nation” went on the air seven years later in 1954, while ABC’s “This Week” debuted in 1981. So between the three of them, the shows have been on the air for 175 years. Sunday talk, however, appears...

    Guess what happened today, folks. I woke up and found out that President Trump didn’t take over the country via a military coup. I was astonished because everyone was telling me that this was a prelude to a coup. Anyone with a scintilla of cognitive function knows this was straight trash, but the media has their marching orders from the Democratic Party: ‘Orange man…bad.’ There could have been zero tanks; the media still would’ve criticized Trump. Why? Because he’s president and that loser Hillary Clinton is not. She will never be president. They still have yet to get that through...

    Although U.S. adults think LGBT persons make up nearly 24% of the U.S. population, this is a dramatic overestimation, according to Gallup, which asserts that the LGBT population is in reality closer to 4.5%. Gallup also reports that the percentage of Americans identifying as LGBT is most prevalent among millennials. […] In May 2015, Gallup found that Americans thought LGBTs were 23.2% of the population, and in May 2011, they thought the percentage was 24.6%. […] Overestimations of the LGBT population may be due to their “outsized visibility” in the culture, especially through the media, said Gallup. …

    This summer, PBS Kids premiered an episode of the children's show Arthur in which a teacher, Mr. Ratburn, "marries" another male character. Even before this premiere, PBS was already infusing the LGBT agenda into its programming. In between its shows, a happy song about families included an image of two dads with a baby and lyrics to that effect. Disney and other children's stations long ago jumped onto the LGBT bandwagon with their line-up. As a Guardian headline noted in 2016, "From Nickelodeon to Disney: Children's TV leads the way for LGBT characters," with same-sex unions featuring prominently in shows....

    President Trump slammed The New York Times on Monday over an article on the administration’s immigration deal with Mexico that he called a “FRAUD” and a “hit job” -- while also warning that if Mexico's legislature does not approve the pact, he will move anew to impose tariffs. The president's comments come after the administration on Friday announced a deal with Mexico which would halt Trump's threatened tariffs in exchange for Mexico taking further action to stop the flow of migrants from Central America to the U.S.-Mexico border. According to the joint declaration issued by the State Department, Mexico will...

    The media has driven the left insane. This data proves it. Since the beginning of the 2010s there has been a dramatic increase in far left social justice terminology appearing in news articles. This coincides with the launch of many leftist media companies who saw a quick path to profit by enraging people on social media. The plan worked and according to Lexis Nexis data social justice and intersectional feminism began to skyrocket at media outlets. The left then was inundated with constant content highlighting very specific ideological positions in an increasingly unhinged left. Today we see the results: censorship,...

    The news – plus barbs from social media trolls and other critics -- may be too much for CNN’s Don Lemon to bear much longer. The host of “CNN Tonight” told an audience in New York City on Thursday that the current “level of toxicity” in society – which he attributed to the Trump presidency – has him questioning whether he’ll still be on the air when the 2020 presidential election rolls around, according to reports. “I don’t know if it’s worth this level of toxicity,” the 53-year-old Lemon said about continuing in his current position, the Daily Beast reported.

    Shocking NY Times headline calls evil good and good evil “Pregnancy Kills. Abortion Saves Lives.” There are four tactics favored by many mainstream media outlets, including the NY Times, that help them fulfill their two primary goals. Let’s start with their goals since they’re blatant: get more eyeballs for their paid subscription model and help Democrats win elections. How do they do this? They have standard journalistic strategies that work for them well because they’ve been around for so long. They have access to people, manpower to cover stories, and resources to acquire assets necessary to make their stories popular....
