    The Hillary Clinton propaganda machine has been hard at work leading up to her presumptive presidential nomination. Entertainment media have been littered with a multitude of TV shows, movies, children’s books, and even songs inspired by the Democratic candidate. It’s typical for the media to get involved in a campaign during an election cycle. But in the case of Hillary Clinton, the media have been laying the groundwork for her ascendance to the Presidency since the early 1990s. Beginning with an episode in the ‘90s featuring President Hillary Clinton, audiences have been treated to Hillary-inspired female presidents and politicians, fictional...

    The idea behind the Fox News channels was by no means a stroke of genius; it was actually a stroke of the blazingly obvious. Why not create a cable news network that was explicitly not another Democrat propaganda machine and directly target the 50 percent of Americans the rest of the media either ignores or treats like dirt? The genius of Roger Ailes came in its execution – everything from the uniquely hot color palette to the uniquely hot journalists to the (at first) unique mix of opinion and straight reporting, all backed by a lean, mean organization that produced...

    In the run up to the Democratic National Convention NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday held a panel discussion to determine what the event would mean for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Since the topic for discussion had to do with Clinton NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell got very excited and began to prattle on, “Well, what they are going to do is— they’re going to have gauzy films, the same kind of films you saw in 1992, the same producers.” She did the same thing when gushing about a staged photo-op for Clinton and President Obama on July 3. “They will have...

    Jihad Watch ^ | JULY 23, 2016 | A. J. CASCHETTA
    Another shooting in Europe yesterday, this time in Germany, shocked the media into action. When news broke of an active shooter who began killing people in front of a McDonalds and then moved inside to the Olympia Shopping Center in Munich, it looked like another ISIS attack. But something was different this time. Eyewitness reports began trickling in indicating that the shooter was heard complaining about refugees, so the media shifted gear, dropping the usual journalistic reticence when it comes to discussing a killer’s motives. Many seemed certain that this killer was finally part of the always-expected, but never-quite-materializing, backlash...

    The BBC has unilaterally chosen not to report the Munich attacker’s full name, in what appears to be an attempt to scrub any Muslim or Islamic heritage link to its coverage of the incident. Most sources at this point suggest that Ali David Sonboly – the Munich attacker who targeted children and killed nine yesterday – is not connected to radical Islam, but the BBC has gone to extraordinary lengths to try to keep any reference to his heritage out of its coverage, opting to name him only as “David Sonboly”. Other news organisations including the Wall Street Journal, Independent,...

    When a young and dumb CNN reporter covering events in Cleveland this week chose to ask an elderly black supporter of GOP nominee Donald Trump a race-baiting question about the candidate’s alleged racism, the supporter unleashed a rapid-fire torrent of truth. “I’m sick of this race and divide!” the supporter exclaimed. “It’s always divide and conquer! It’s a scam! And I know it’s not going to get on CNN!” Indeed. The hacks at CNN would never in a million years willingly expose their mainly brainwashed audience to the existence of a black man who supports Trump.

    During an early summer visit to Washington, D.C., comedian James Corden brought his "Carpool Karaoke" segment to the White House with First Lady Michelle Obama.In contrast to Corden's usual guests, such as Adele and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Obama didn't have an album to promote and didn't have any songs of her own to sing. Instead, she joined Corden on a pleasant (and heavily guarded) tour through Washington. The two discussed life in the White House and sang along to some of the first lady's favorite tunes."James Corden's White House tour takes an unthinkable turn when First Lady Michelle...

    Watching MSNBC and CNN in their post-game analysis and they are saying that his speech is a warning of a "dark dystopian" America. A few of the commentators actually said "White Identity". I could not believe it. I was floored. They say that if you are in an argument and your opponent's only retort is that you are a racist (or sexist, etc), then the opponent has lost the argument. If that is the case, then Trump hit one out of the park. I was very impressed tonight. I did not expect that.

    When a lone protester from the anti-American, far-left group Code Pink tried to make noise in the crowd at the Republican National Convention (RNC) on Tuesday night, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC tag-teamed with MSNBC to spent nearly six minutes showing and discussing the “scrappy” protester. ABC led the way with two minutes and 14 seconds hyping and/or showing the protester jostle with delegates and security as chief anchor and Clinton Foundation donor George Stephanopoulos intently interested in the protester’s actions. This then gave way to chief foreign correspondent Terry Moran chiding the RNC for “another...

CBS’s Bob Schieffer offered a closing commentary in which he suggested Trump in 2016 could end up like the landslide losses of 1964 and 1972. Regarding a single Code Pink protester, ABC’s Terry Moran blamed, “It was the kind of unsettled emotions that Donald Trump has sparked in many people around the country.” Regarding “ a grieving mother of one of the dead from Benghazi,” Moran warned, “It's been a dark night, in many ways from the...

    Nickelodeon, the American cable and satellite TV network aimed at kids and teens, has introduced its first animated “gay married” couple. Debuting in The Loud House — a cartoon about Lincoln Loud, an 11-year-old boy with 10 sisters — the scene features a friend coming for a stayover with Lincoln. Lincoln and his chum, Clyde McBride, have been counting down the time to the sleepover, so perhaps that’s why Lincoln announces: “Time to make history!” — before he opens the door to reveal Clyde and his two dads. Owned by Viacom Media Network, Nickelodeon targets children ages 2 to 17....

    This could go down as the most egregious example of an MSM “anchor” groveling at the feet of a liberal activist . . . During MSNBC’s coverage of the opening night of the Republican convention, Tavis Smiley complained that, unlike cop killers, “killer cops” are not called “vicious and despicable and cowardly and reprehensible.” Brian Williams immediately piped up: “Tavis, if I appointed you president and you still refused to run we would have to appoint you.” I’m guessing Williams meant to say “if I nominated you for president you and you refused to run we would have to appoint...

They always have a poll question, usually something like, "Which housewife is the meanest" or "Which house-husband is the hottest". Tonight, the question was, "Who do you support, Trump or Hillary?" I didn't vote because I was sure that the response would be a landslide for hiLIARy. Imagine my shock (and thrill) to find that TRUMP won the poll 65% to 35%! Just WOW! I have hope for this country.

His purpose, he said, was to demonstrate how simple it was and to explore Illinois’ gun laws concerning assault weapons. When he bought the gun, Steinberg planned to sell it back to the store. However, his purchase was stopped by the gun store, which canceled the transaction during Illinois’ required 24-hour waiting period after discovering he had lied on his background check about his history of alcohol abuse and domestic violence. In his article, Steinberg admitted that while...

    Liberal CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour suffered an epic meltdown on Thursday night as it became clear that Britain was asserting its national sovereignty and voting to leave the European Union. The sneering Amanpour repeatedly derided it as an example of “xenophobia” and “white identity” politics. Early in the evening, with the result still in doubt, Amanpour told Anderson Cooper: “A lot of the Leave movements are led by the hard-right, very, very xenophobic, anti-immigrant, very populist, nationalist, white identity politics.” Later, as reality set in, the journalist referenced the current issue of The Economist and raged, “This marks a victory...

    The media orgy over the Democrats’ temper tantrum in the House of Representatives has been well documented over the past 24 hours. But with all the fawning tributes and comparisons to civil rights era protests on the 1960s, one fundamental, logical question seems to have escaped the minds of the hive-mentality media gaggle covering the Pelosi-run publicity stunt. Let’s first point out the so-called “common sense gun safety legislation” these Democrats claim was the impetus behind their fund-raising escapade disguised as a protest. The crux of their agenda had to do with legislation designed to prevent individuals on the terrorist...

It is sold in a semi-auto version to sportsmen and in full automatic by assorted special operations forces worldwide. The point is that it is not an AR-15 and no one, other than the media, ever claimed it...

In a memo, members of the executive committee, including Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the newspaper’s publisher, and Dean Baquet, its executive editor, said that the buyouts were a part of the company’s larger mandate to build a more digitally focused newsroom, and to reach its stated goal of doubling digital revenue by the year 2020. “These plans will no doubt lead to new initiatives and investments,” the memo said. “At the same...

    Former Breitbart News, Daily Caller, Fox News, PJ Media, and Reason TV associate Michelle Fields announced Sunday night that she is joining the left-wing Huffington Post website to cover the Donald Trump campaign. Fields’ move completes the 180-degree transition that Fields and her new fiancé, Jamie Weinstein, have made in recent weeks from the top rungs of the Republican establishment to compromised positions in the expatriate pro-Hillary Clinton Right.

    Retired USA Today White House reporter Richard Benedetto penned an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal on Friday titled “How Obama Gets Away With It.” He suggested “Usually when an incumbent president is leaving office and a slew of candidates are battling for his job, that departing chief executive’s record is a major campaign issue.” But Obama’s record in office is not an issue. Obviously, one reason is the Republican establishment didn’t want Obama to be an issue, which is why they moved to take any budget fight with Obama off the table for the rest of his presidency. …

    Not all conservatives come at the run when thumb-sucking Zuckerberg decided to toot his whistle Facebook’s sham ‘self investigation‘ into the social media giant’s alleged suppression of conservative news scheduled for tomorrow at Silicon Valley, had already come to a conclusion about who the culprits were ahead of the big get together. “Several people close to the company, who also declined to speak on record, argued that if bias was being inserted into the trending section, it came from Facebook’s part-time news curators acting on their own.” (The Guardian, May 16, 2016)

    Of course. “Dan, you have no evidence whatsoever that ESPN fired them because of their Christianity.” You’re right. I don’t. It’s possible they didn’t and I certainly can’t prove they did. But here’s what I do know: ESPN has already proved it will fire people who are outspoken in the expression of views that don’t comport to the left-wing worldview that ESPN either a) holds; or b) intends to appease at every opportunity.

    Facebook workers routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers from the social network’s influential “trending” news section, according to a former journalist who worked on the project. This individual says that workers prevented stories about the right-wing CPAC gathering, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, and other conservative topics from appearing in the highly-influential section, even though they were organically trending among the site’s users. Several former Facebook “news curators,” as they were known internally, also told Gizmodo that they were instructed to artificially “inject” selected stories into the trending news module, even if they weren’t popular enough to warrant...

    Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders called for a more liberal version of Fox News to help fix the problems he sees in corporate media. “I think we have got to think about way that the Democratic party for a start starts funding the equivalent of Fox television,” he said in an interview that aired Friday on MSNBC's “The Rachel Maddow Show.” Sanders blasted the media for shallow reporting, including coverage of presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. “I think the American people are going to have to say to NBC and ABC and CBS and CNN, you know what, forget the...
