    After we published a list of President Trump’s lies this summer, we heard a common response from his supporters. They said, in effect: Yes, but if you made a similar list for previous presidents, it would be just as bad. We’ve set out to make that list. Here, you will find our attempt at a comprehensive catalog of the falsehoods that Barack Obama told while he was president. (We also discuss George W. Bush below, although the lack of real-time fact-checking during his presidency made a comprehensive list impossible.) We applied the same conservative standard to Obama and Trump, counting...

    SJWs do something similar with regards to various forms of bigotry. Their goal isn’t necessarily to defeat bigotry, as some of the more honest among their number admit that it isn’t really possible to eliminate all biases in human beings in the first place. And even the most idiotic of SJWs has to know deep down that in America, we have it pretty good with regards to demographic group tolerance – or we did, anyway, before SJWs started screwing around with it again. Rather, the goal of the SJW is to signal that he is not racist/sexist/whatever. Like the guy...
  • ABC News Suspends Brian Ross for 4 Weeks Without Pay: ‘Effective Immediately’

    12/02/2017 2:58:15 PM PST · by Snickering Hound · 283 replies
    ABC News has announced that Brian Ross would be suspended for four weeks without pay “effective immediately.” “It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience – these are our core principles. We fell far short of that yesterday,” the network said in a statement on Saturday. “Effective immediately, Brian Ross will be suspended for four weeks without pay.” Ross came under considerable fire on Friday after he erroneously reported on live television that then-candidate Donald Trump had instructed Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians.

    Roy Moore has regained his footing in the Alabama special election for a seat in the U.S. Senate, according to a poll released Wednesday that showed the Republican has taken back the lead from Democrat Doug Jones. Mr. Moore holds a 48 to 43 percent margin over Mr. Jones in a JMC Analytics and Polling survey after trailing the Democrat by a 42 to 46 percent margin earlier this month.

    San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz on Monday continued to criticize the Trump administration’s relief efforts in Puerto Rico while she praised the Clinton Foundation. During an appearance on MSNBC, Cruz discussed the island’s widespread power outages and called for a transition to renewable energy sources. She praised the Clinton Foundation for providing the island with solar panels, saying the organization has formed an "alliance" with Puerto Rico that has helped bring power back to the island. "We're still in a life-and-death situation," Cruz said. "And we need to get our power back, get it restored, but we need to...

    You’ve heard the statistics before: Americans have more guns per head than any nation on earth – along with gun violence rates that are dramatically higher than other rich, developed countries. But these big-picture facts can be misleading. Not every American is packing heat and gun violence is intensely concentrated in small neighbourhoods. Here’s a look at the dramatic concentration of America’s guns – and America’s violence:

    The Washington Post lied about a lawmaker's biblical reference, refused to quote what he actually said, then mocked Breitbart for shoddy journalism. After the presidential election last November, New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet gave an interview to NPR in which he admitted that his journalists simply don’t understand religion. “We don’t get religion,” Baquet said. “We don’t get the role of religion in people’s lives.” Baquet was correct: Acela corridor political reporters don’t understand religion, especially Christianity. Though he was specifically speaking about New York Times reporters, Baquet’s comments clearly also apply to the Washington Post, which on...

    Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and several other Republican senators said on Thursday if allegations are true, Alabama Senate Republican candidate Judge Roy Moore should drop out of the race. The Washington Post released a story on Thursday alledging that Moore initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32, as well as other cases of sexual misconduct. Moore denied the allegations. “These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore said. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “If these allegations are true, he must...

    Senate Republican leadership is calling for Alabama GOP candidate Roy Moore to step down as the party's nominee if new allegations of his inappropriate sexual conduct against a 14-year old girl in 1979 are true. Both Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) released brief statements on Thursday, shortly after The Washington Post published the allegations. "If these allegations are true, he must step aside," McConnell said. Gardner's statement echoed that from McConnell. “The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling,” he said. “If these allegations are found...

    Leigh Corfman says she was 14 years old when an older man approached her outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Ala. She was sitting on a wooden bench with her mother, they both recall, when the man introduced himself as Roy Moore. It was early 1979 and Moore — now the Republican nominee in Alabama for a U.S. Senate seat — was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney. He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing. “He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her...

    The ACLU and Taylor Swift are squaring off after the singer tried to get an article detailing how white supremacy movements have embraced her lyrics and music videos, and how her silence has exacerbated the matter, pulled from a website. On Monday, the ACLU sent a letter to Swift's legal team arguing that an article posted by PopFront that links the star to the white supremacy movement should not be taken down -- as Swift has requested -- because the writer has the right to free speech.

    Talking about lies by a president has become all the rage. Not long ago it was thought of as unacceptable, but it is now de rigueur in the fashionable set. In fact, the paper of record (NYT) published a full page of President Trump lies -- dirty, filthy lies. Of course, what is considered a lie is often in the eye of the beholder. I read each and every lie as listed in the New York Times. Please read them for yourself. First, many of the statements he said were repeated numerous times. Many, if not most, of the statements...

    I knew of Harvey Weinstein, and I'd heard that he possessed the power to make or break careers, that he was bombastic and that he pushed people around. But that pretty much was the extent of it. After all, this is Hollywood, where only a small percent of would-be actors and actresses in the Screen Actors Guild earn enough to make a full-time living in their chosen profession. In this town -- and especially in the acting community -- anxiety is the norm. A friend and former studio executive once invited me to a cocktail party he was hosting to...

    George W. Bush ascended the podium at a forum hosted by his think tank last week and violated his family’s prime directive: Never speak ill of a successor. He said, “We've seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty.” Ahhh, casual cruelty. The ol’ combination of noun with unlikely adjective spoken in coy alliteration. Like “compassionate conservative.” A one hit wonder returning to the rhyme scheme that carried him to the top of the charts. Except now it sounds old and derivative. And, given evolving tastes and sensibilities, it is impossible to hear without also hearing Trump’s voice in the back...

    Obama was blocking cooperation between ICE agents and their ICE attorney colleagues in an effort to obstruct our immigration laws. The Obama administration may have been playing to lose in deportation cases, a watchdog group has claimed. The Immigration Reform Law Institute said a 2013 memo that has been recently unearthed shows that during the Obama years, immigration investigators suffered interference from above. “The document confirms what the House Judiciary (Committee) had been hearing for years: that Obama was blocking cooperation between ICE agents and their ICE attorney colleagues in an effort to obstruct our immigration laws,” said Dale L....

    During the Ferguson protests, I remember thinking, “This is what happens when people feel like they don’t have a voice.” The outraged community gathered together to speak. And, as can happen with outrage — particularly when there are scared, young people involved — the rage overtook some, and the protests turned destructive. The whole thing felt a wee bit like racism, to be honest. There was an “us” vs. “them” feel to it. Distaste for a community that didn’t exercise self-control. A “Well, what do you expect?” attitude. Do you know what I didn’t hear discussed from any of the...

    Lost in all this talk about the league losing 10% viewership is the effect on the hot dog vendor and his ability to earn a living because a bunch of overpaid social justice warriors need to make a point about a lie and complete fabrication of statistics by mere innuendo. So, doing a quick back of napkin calculation of what a loss of $200 million means, in terms of economics of hourly employees to revenue, I concluded 500 people would necessarily need to have their hours drastically reduced or would be laid off. That is a staggering amount of people...
