  • Trust in news media takes a hit during Trump presidency

    Associated Press ^ | Jan 15, 2018 12:30 AM EST | Laurie Kellman and Jonathan Drew
    When truck driver Chris Gromek wants to know whats 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 Trumps 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...

  • No, A White House Intern Didn't Throw Up A White Power Sign In Photo Op With Trump

    Oh, we’re back to this again. For a White House intern was captured throwing up what many on the Left say is a white power hand gesture in a recent photograph with the president. The picture included President Donald Trump and the fall intern class all had them giving a thumbs up for the photograph, except Jack Breuer, who was giving the ‘OK’ sign, which has been used by virtually everyone. Progressives claim the three fingers form a “W,” while the index finger curling to meet the thumb to form an “O” shape somehow forms a “P.” WP= White power...

    Some in the media are actually suggesting the Iranian protesters are the terrorists. The mainstream media is siding with Iran. The MSM is protecting the terror nation of Iran as best they can. Toby Young Extraordinarily one-sided report on the Iranian protests in the @guardian, essentially siding with the regime.

    Liberal elite magazine Vanity Fair says it is very sorry it offended its subscriber base by suggesting Hillary Clinton move on with life and take up new hobbies like knitting. The suggestion, part of an online video poking fun at the failed presidential candidate, was greeted with outrage, disdain and near-hysteria from Vanity Fairs readership who immediately complained of sexism. "It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark," Beth Kseniak, a spokeswoman for Vanity Fair said Wednesday. The video can still be found on Twitter. Clinton supporters were so angry over incident that they...

    Sad face. As America approaches the one-year mark without left-wing Savior Barack Obama to wisely guide its way, the U.S. returns to misery.

    CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter offers a weekly guest list full of liberal journalists, and then occasionally he interviews a conservative....if the objective is to offer a conservative underlining one of Stelter's favorite points. That happened again on Christmas Eve, when S.E. Cupp, host of a talk show on HLN (a sister network of CNN), sounded the company talking points on how the "mainstream media" are a "pillar of democracy" and attacked Fox News as resembling a "very friendly" dictator's channel. First, Cupp explained to Stelter that the media's ardor against Trump has sharpened the sense among conservatives that...

    Some media pundits have been determined not to let President Trump and the GOP gloat over their successful votes Tuesday and early Wednesday morning on tax reform. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has passed both chambers and is now on its way to Trump's desk.House Speaker Paul Ryan is ecstatic, considering he has worked on tax reform since he was a baby-faced politician. For every middle-income family that knows what it's like to try to make ends meet and for every hardworking taxpayer who has ever spent hours trying to navigate complicated IRS forms, this vote in favor of...

    The Washington Post columnist stands out among Trump-obsessed zealots who add nothing to our discourse. The era of Trump has been as hard on the mind as it has been good for the muscles in the chest. Ours is a moment in which millions rush breathlessly to exclaim. In defense! In resistance! In bloody-minded persistence! I will not back down! we are told, by people who have not been asked to, and could not be compelled to. They wont be intimidated either, nor silenced, nor bullied nor, it seems, pushed to any form of self-reflection. Indignation, not analysis, is the...

    A spokesman for MSNBC on Sunday confirmed a report that a staffer at the news channel nearly two decades ago had been paid and left her job after she complained she was sexually harassed by "Hardball" host Chris Matthews. The spokesman said the woman approached CNBC executives in 1999 to report Matthews made inappropriate comments about her in front of others. CNBC is a sister company of MSNBC. The company declined to identify the comments, other than to say they were sophomoric, inappropriate, made in poor taste and never meant as propositions. "In 1999, this matter was thoroughly reviewed and...

    Authorities apprehended a terrorist suspect Monday after he orchestrated an explosion in downtown Manhattan, but CNN and MSNBC decided to pivot from the breaking news to cover a much more pressing story: President Donald Trumps TV habits and love of Diet Coke. Initial reports indicate that the explosion is a probable terror attack, but as details of the attack were still being fleshed out, both CNN and MSNBC spent a significant amount of time covering a New York Times story about a day in the life of POTUS. CNN talked to Michael DAntonio, a CNN contributor, about Trumps TV-watching habits...

    Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm whose Democrat-financed Russia dossier fueled an FBI investigation into Donald Trump, pitched other stories about the Republican presidential candidate to Washington reporters, including an attempt to tie him to a convicted pedophile who was once buddies with former President Bill Clinton. Journalist sources told The Washington Times that Fusion founder Glenn Simpson pushed the idea of a close relationship between Mr. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, who pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting sex from an underage girl. The Trump-Epstein link appears purely social, far short of Mr. Clintons 20-plus plane rides on Epsteins Lolita...
