  • New CNN Ad Warns Donald Trump That With A Lot Of Apples “You’ve Got A Case”

    CNN launched yet another “Facts First” promo, this time reminding President Donald Trump about the collective power of apples. “This is an apple,” CNN’s latest promo begins. “And, this is an apple.” “And this is an apple.” “And when you put them all together, you’ve got a case.” CNN’s latest promo – the network seems to be picking up the pace — comes as news outlets report special counsel Robert Mueller appears to be building a case that President Donald Trump’s interference with the investigation into Russian election meddling constitutes obstruction of justice. One day earlier, CNN, among many other...

    Politco ^ | February 13, 2018 | ERIC POSNER and GLEN WEYL
    The raw emotions generated by immigration policy—provoked by heartrending stories of families torn apart by deportation, or citizens murdered by illegal immigrants—have scrambled political allegiances and confused public debate. Republicans, usually the champions of family values and small government, now want to restrict family reunification and give bureaucrats the power to screen people who want to enter the country. Democrats, traditionally the allies of the working class, want big business to select immigrants and have given scant attention to the legitimate interests of working-class natives. The only way to end this politically charged debate is to think carefully about benefits...
  • Los Angeles Times owner will sell paper, ending a long-troubled relationship

    Washington Post ^ | February 6, 2018 | Paul Farhi
    The Chicago-based owner of the Los Angeles Times is expected to announce it is selling the newspaper, according to people familiar with the company’s plans, in a surprise move that probably spells the end of its long-troubled relationship with Southern California’s leading news outlet. [Snip] The past few months have been particularly chaotic at the Times, with rapid turnover in the paper’s top ranks and a major clash between management and journalists over a proposal to have more non-staffers contributing more news content. [Snip] The paper’s future has been clouded since Tribune Co. filed for bankruptcy court protection in 2008....

    The Left is crying out, “lies, lies, the Memo is filled with lies!” Let’s go back and prove to the Left that their cohorts in the Mainstream Media helped to back up the Memo. I want to thank Tracy Beanz for her thorough video, which led me to do this report. We will start with the following Ex-British spy paid $168,000 for Trump dossier, US firm discloses. Although it was public knowledge that Fusion GPS paid for the work, the amount had not been disclosed. Fusion GPS hired former MI6 officer Christopher Steele to collect information about Trump and...

    Today, in lieu of a normal column, would you mind if we just set a few things straight? There are issues in which a combination of forces – from conscious choices by politicians and academics to sheer ignorance by reporters and vocal but confused stars in the popular culture – have combined to cause complete misunderstandings across the country, and even across the world. In his great speech endorsing Senator Goldwater in 1964, “A Time for Choosing,” (commonly known simply as The Speech), President Ronald Reagan first made a statement that has long resonated with those of us who watch...

  • CNN: Sarah Sanders just made a hugely offensive allegation against the media

    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders isn't a big fan of the media. Which is, of course, her right. The relationship between any White House and any press corps tasked with covering that White House is almost always fraught and fractious. But, on Monday, Sanders made an accusation that went way, way beyond the pale of the usual give and take between White House and press corps. Here's what she said: "There's a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people. Something that happens regularly. You can't say -- I'm not done. You can't say...

    Don Surber ^ | December 10, 2017
    Well, journalists had another stellar week of buying petards from Acme, setting the explosives off, and hoisting themselves high above the ground. The first ten days of December have seen: ABC News's Brian Ross lie about General Flynn's plea bargain. Reuters and Bloomberg News report on an imaginary subpoena of Trump's records at a German bank. CNN lie about Donald Trump Junior being tipped off about a WikiLeaks. David Weigel of the Washington Post lie about the size of the crowd at a Trump rally. Liars all of them.

    It has been formally announced this 27th day of November in the year 2017 that a British royal - Prince Henry of Wales (known to drinking buddies as Prince Harry) - is marrying an American divorcée. The last time this happened - in 1936 when King Edward VIII decided to wed American socialite Wallis Simpson — it triggered a crisis inside Windsor Castle. For one thing, Simpson was about to divorce for the second time. Also, she was from Baltimore.

    President Donald Trump praised Fox News while criticizing CNN in a tweet that brought forth a rebuke from CNN and a claim by a New York Times reporter that Trump has 'declared Fox News state TV.' Trump wrote Saturday evening, ".@FoxNews is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!"

    The death of cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson resurfaces tales from his twisted family’s killing spree after nearly four decades. Manson orchestrated the brutal deaths of actress Sharon Tate and six other innocent people in the 1960s according to historical reports, which leave many wondering how he convinced followers, made up of a former Sunday school teacher, a church choir singer and a one-time homecoming princess, into committing such brutal acts. According to psychoanalyst Mark Smaller, past president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, part of Manson’s power lay in the type of language he used. Notably, Manson was...

    Dan Rather, who famously lost his job after he was caught spreading a made-up story about former President George W. Bush, is making the rounds again to discuss accuracy in media and the proper role of the press in our republic. Because this is real life and the producers of NBC's "Today" show lack any sense of self-awareness. "[A] recent poll that said nearly half of people think the media make up stories!" co-host Savannah Guthrie said as she kicked off the morning segment. Referring to a Politico survey released in October, she then turned to Rather and said,...

    How sick do you have to be to downplay a terror attack in the name of climate science? Eight people are dead after a terrorist plowed a truck into pedestrians on a lower Manhattan bike path. The suspect, identified by law enforcement officials as 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov, reportedly screamed “Allahu akbar” as he exited the vehicle waving guns after crashing into a school bus. He was shot by a uniformed police officer and is now in custody. New York Police Commissioner James O'Neill said a paintball gun and pellet gun were recovered at the scene. Saipov is reportedly an Uzbek...

    WEST NEWTON, PA -- There used to be 324 newspapers in the state of Pennsylvania. Today, there are about 60, give or take a few. The Pennsylvania Gazette is the first one on record not just in the colony of Pennsylvania but in all of the Crown's colonies. Benjamin Franklin bought the paper with a partner in 1729, and he contributed to it, as well, mostly under aliases. Among the many firsts, the plucky paper would print the first political cartoon in America, "Join, or Die," authored by Franklin. It also printed the then-treasonous texts of the Declaration of Independence,...

    Let’s be honest, ‘best’ of anything lists are never more than popularity contests. So who was surprised that Vanity Fair’s ‘Best Dressed’ list included former FLOTUS Michelle but shunned current FLOTUS Melania. President Trump – and by extension his wife – remain unpopular with extreme prejudice in the Deep State Media.  But perhaps Business Insider, in another snarky article comparing the cost of Melania’s outfits to those of Michelle’s, reveals a partial explanation of their unpopularity: not only are the Trumps wealthy, they don’t have the good sense to be embarrassed by it. Melania and her husband have long embodied...

    The mounting intensity of Donald Trump’s war on the press confounds news veterans like me who remember Trump’s history as a media whore. During my 20 years as editor-in-chief of Variety, I knew Trump as an avid self-publicist who frantically sought loftier standing on Hollywood’s power pyramid. But here’s the rub: My perspective on Trump is shaped by my earlier relationship with another icon who also yearned to leverage showbiz fame into political power. Assigned to cover Ronald Reagan’s first gubernatorial campaign for The New York Times, I had an inside seat to observe how a vastly different style of...

    Politics has become the pimple on America’s forehead: It’s impossible to ignore because it keeps telling us it’s there. Technology makes it conspicuous. The same social media network that notifies you what your friend’s college roommate had for lunch loses all control when the former director of national intelligence opens his mouth. Back in the day, when computers were operated by punch cards and existed for no other reason than to calculate payroll and, occasionally, the angle of reentry for a moonshot, a guy like James Clapper would have left Washington and taken some position in a university or something,...

    Sigh. If only President Trump denounced neo-Nazis as passionately and sincerely as he castigates journalists. What could be an easier task than distancing oneself from Nazis or violent white supremacists? Yet Trump manages to make it infinitely complicated — and then get distracted by self-pity and excoriate reporters for committing journalism. The key strain of his sulfurous speech in Phoenix on Tuesday was an extended attack on “dishonest” reporters (including at “the failing New York Times”). Look, we in journalism deserve to have our feet held to the fire. We make mistakes all the time, and too often we are...
