  • CNN’s Cuomo: It Will Be Media’s Job To Act As Trump ‘Opposition’

    11/30/2016 11:55:21 AM PST · by Altura Ct. · 85 replies
    According to CNN’s Chris Cuomo, it is the media’s job to serve as the “opposition” to President-elect Donald Trump’s incoming administration. On CNN’s New Day Wednesday morning, Cuomo vowed to oppose Trump’s policies, and stated he feels it is the job of the media as a whole to treat the next president of the United States with hostility. Per Cuomo, “The media cannot yield. This administration is going to demand constant fact-checking and opposition.” The CNN anchor, who is the brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and the son the of late New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, said the...

    Well the left wing media is at it again my friends! This time they not only no longer bother to hide their liberal bias and un-objective reporting, the now have decided to attack Donald Trumps son Barron. During the election celebration, Barron Trump was looking dozy and tired, he is no doubt up past his bedtime as the announcement comes in that his father is now the president and no doubt feeling emotional and doing his best to hide it with the whole world watching him. For a ten year old boy, this must be a hard moment. He's up...

    It didn’t take long for the Monday knife attack at Ohio State University to turn into a gun control rallying cry. First reports and reports throughout the duration of the attack described it as a shooting. Authorities later clarified it was a knife attack. Minutes after news broke that there was an alleged active shooter, Twitter users called for stronger gun control and blamed the attack on lackluster laws. The school is a “gun free zone,” and instructed students to “run hide fight” and stay in place. At least eight people have been taken to the hospital, with one critical...

    Before we head home for what will undoubtedly be a raucous holiday weekend of conversation, let's first look back at last two weeks since the unlikely election on Donald Trump from a media perspective. Later in the morning after the Republican was officially declared the winner, we started hearing from various voices in the industry about a need for self-education to glean what lessons were learned. The introspection was a necessary one, after all, only because by all accounts the media — broadcast, print, online and otherwise — got failing grades for its performance. It was an election season where...

One of the world's best known foreign correspondents told CBC's The Investigators that her "blood ran cold" when Donald Trump tweeted out that those who were protesting in the streets after his election win had been "incited by the media." Amanpour says several statements made in recent months by the U.S. president-elect — in which he has variously described journalists as "despicable and dishonest," "crooked" and "liars" — can be the...

    Trump in his Tuesday meeting with reporters and editors at The New York Times offered an olive branch, acknowledging that he’s a longtime reader and pledging a willingness to develop a professional working relationship. “I would like to turn it around,” Trump said. “I think it would make the job I am doing much easier.” Trump’s words may do little to assuage the press’s fears. White House reporters are worried about access to Trump, who didn’t allow reporters on his campaign plane and ditched media staking out Trump Tower last week to have dinner with family at New York’s 21...

By Ian Tuttle — November 25, 2016 Following Donald Trump’s upset victory earlier this month, the media has suddenly grown deeply troubled about the proliferation of “fake” news — gossip-mongering and fabrication and “news” reports devoid of a factual basis.

    What worries me the most about fake news, isn’t that it’s fake, it’s that it’s being used by the left to try to silence opposing views. Take for example a story reported by the Los Angeles Times that included a professor who put together a Google document of “false, misleading, clickbait-y and satirical ‘news sources’” to help people “cleanse their newsfeeds of misinformation.” The only problem with the list, was it included real news sites of which the professor simply didn’t agree. Conservative blogs, including Red State and The Blaze, were on the list, as was more centrist, but GOP-leaning...

    SPN’s well-publicized hemorrhaging of subscribers peaked in recent months, greatly hindering the Bristol-based giant’s all-important ability to purchase sports rights. Now, subscriber loss reached such a level that ESPN has become a financial drain on its parent-company Disney. Other Disney TV properties have also taken hits, but ESPN’s subscription face-plant, highlighted by the earth-shattering loss of 621,000 subscribers in October, has Disney most concerned, considering that ESPN accounts for a huge portion Disney’s operating income. By some estimates, ESPN accounts for as much as 30% of Disney’s operating income, and the sports powerhouse has shed 10 million subscribers in the...

'If you don't want to support the alt-right, don't choose as a White House counselor a man who uses the word n****r,' Kaiser said. A shocked Baldwin initially raised her eyebrows and let Kaiser continue. Kaiser is a regular on the show and often speaks out against Trump. On...

Individuals from CNN, CBS, The New York Times, NBC, MSNBC and more came together under the campaign’s stated goal of “framing the race” to help Clinton win. Many of the above media outlets were indeed the Clinton campaign’s biggest surrogates throughout the 2016 presidential election. This past election cycle was unprecedented in terms of the bias and lack of objectivity exercised by the mainstream media.

    Political philosophers define a “crisis” as that condition in which the symbol systems – political, social, cultural, ideological – by which we create order in a chaotic world no longer work effectively, thus rendering our lives incoherent. When you are unable to make sense of your life, when it gets harder and harder to function purposefully, well, you have a crisis. Judging by the reactions to Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in the American presidential election, a lot of people are in crisis mode.

    Tuesday at the Los Angeles International Airport, CNN anchor Jake Tapper told TMZ the media made “mistakes” while covering the 2016 presidential election. Tapper said, “I think there were a lot of media mistakes this season in all sorts of directions. I think polling needs to be re-examined quite a bit.” He added, “Certainly there is a lot of people whose behavior and professionalism this election season should be re-examined and thinking about how to be better and how to do it better.”

    Two pillars of local journalism are facing cuts.

They have a week to decide before layoffs are announced. Sources tell 7 Action News staffers at the Detroit Free Press will be made a similar offer as early as Wednesday. Tim Kiska is a former staffer for both papers. "This is not good, I don't think, for public discourse at all. This is a disaster," Kiska said.

    Donald Trump ditched the media yet again last night and went out for dinner with his family. An NBC reporter managed to squeeze out a reservation from the same restaurant Trump visited and captured this footage of his fellow patrons cheering as he entered the establishment. Mainstream media hacks were furious, insisting that Trump had violated their trust by attending a private dinner without informing the press pool. One reporter for CNN told Anderson Cooper, “It appears to be yet another misunderstanding of exactly how much gravity his new title as President-elect holds. You know, if god forbid something were...
