    President Donald Trump on Saturday was photographed wearing a mask during a visit to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, after months of refusing to don the medical expert-recommended face coverings meant to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. "I love masks in the appropriate locations," Trump said, speaking to reporters at the White House before his visit. Trump's usual reluctance to cover his mouth and nose in public has been a point of controversy during the nation's coronavirus crisis, especially as cases of COVID-19 continue to spike — particularly in Republican-led states. Before taking off for Walter...

    As if orders went out from a central director, nearly every major media outlet flat-out lied about President Trump's speech.When Sen. Bob Dole accepted the Republican nomination for president in 1996, his speech hit on the themes of “honor, decency and straight talk.” He proudly mentioned the great Republican Abraham Lincoln and explicitly denounced racism.“The Republican Party is broad and inclusive. It represents many streams of opinion and many points of view. But if there’s anyone who has mistakenly attached themselves to our party in the belief that we are not open to citizens of every race and religion, then...

    Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio has made history by becoming the first transgender woman to grace the pages of the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The 23-year-old trailblazer, who has also posed for Victoria's Secret, will appear in the publication's 2020 issue after being photographed by Josie Clough on Scrub Island in the British Virgin Islands. Valentina appeared on Good Morning America on Friday to announce the news while sharing how much the opportunity means to her and the LGBTQ+ community as a whole.
  • Colin Powell suggests media had 'hysterical' reaction to reports on Russian bounty intelligence

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell indicated on Thursday that media figures overreacted to a recent report that Russian officials placed bounties on the lives of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. "What I know is that our military commanders on the ground did not think that it was as serious a problem as the newspapers were reporting and television was reporting," Powell told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell. "It got kind of out of control before we really had an understanding of what had happened. I’m not sure we fully understand now." He added: "But [commander of U.S. Central Command] General [Kenneth] McKenzie...
  • Dave Lamont’s ESPN job in jeopardy after slip-up in race relations call

    During a passionate two-hour ESPN college football conference call last month to discuss race following the death of George Floyd, there were riveting and emotional testimonials from on- and off-air people as hundreds listened. About a half-hour in, as ESPN’s Maria Taylor discussed the issue and her experience, a play-by-play man for the network, Dave LaMont, could be heard in the background, apparently thinking his phone was on mute. LaMont described the nature of the call on race as “venting,” which stunned those listening and immediately caused a rebuke from Taylor, who warned there could be ramifications if he did...

    What happens if COVID death rates plummet to the point of no longer being a pandemic threat? The media will turn it on Trump.> Legacy media became predictably hysterical after President Donald Trump’s speech Friday defending American exceptionalism at one of the nation’s most iconic monuments, Mount Rushmore. “We will state the truth in full, without apology: We declare that the United States of America is the most just and exceptional nation ever to exist on Earth,” Trump proclaimed from the South Dakota Black Hills. “We are proud of the face that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and...

    Journalism is just one of the industries hard-hit by the economic fallout from the pandemic. While we reimagine journalism’s structures and funding models, what role might the government play in intervening to support the role of a functioning press—not just someday, but now? In a new report published by the Hussman School of Journalism and Media at the University of North Carolina, Penny Abernathy—a collaborator on our Cutback Tracker project—underlines the stakes. Since 2005, more than a quarter of the country’s newspapers have disappeared. In the same fifteen-year span, the number of local journalists working in newsrooms has dropped by...

    We really are at a point in America that you can no longer trust the mainstream media on even the most basic reporting. They will always put their personal spin on a story to sway your thinking.Florida teenager Carsyn Leigh Davis died on June 23rd in Fort Myers, Florida from “complications from coronavirus.”God rest her soul. ABC News carried the story. The Tampa Bay Times also carried the story. This is the latest example of the panic porn promoted by the liberal mainstream media.What the media is hiding from the public in their headline is that Carsyn battled cancer...

    The Black Lives Matter protests are radical, they are violent, and they have claimed innocent lives all over the country. This isn’t a surprise: We’ve watched this movement played out before by many of the exact same leaders and even under the exact same name. Now, through a combination of political foolishness, public amnesia, and willful media gaslighting, America gets to live it all again — and more civilians and police officers are being attacked and even killed.The Black Lives Matter movement isn’t new at all. It’s the same loose collection of good-thinking people concerned over police violence and violent,...

    If we’re inclined to glide past the Marxist fingerprints all over America’s current turmoil, assuming its ideas will flare up for a while and then burn out, we’re not paying attention. American institutions have stoked the coals of Karl Marx’s destructive ideology, fanning its flames until his notions have consumed our cultural pillars.Far from being forgotten and irrelevant, Marx’s ideas pervade key institutions, from universities and schools, to mass media and popular entertainment, to major corporations and medicine, to the arts and sciences. They’ve even seeped into many churches and seminaries. Of course, they also define the Democratic Party, Joe...

    New York Post ^ | 07/07/2020 | John Ziegler
    The most dangerous flaw in the modern news media is their now constant vulnerability of becoming deeply invested in a particular narrative at the very start of a large story, and then having the ensuing tunnel vision prevent them from adjusting their reporting as new facts become available. I am referring here to the news media’s obsession with using “new cases” as by far the most common, and often only, data point for evaluating how the nation is coping with the coronavirus crisis. For more than two weeks, ever since June 19, when new cases in the United States went...

    WASHINGTON -- Not long after noon on Feb. 6, President Donald Trump strode into the elegant East Room of the White House. The night before, his impeachment trial had ended with acquittal in the Republican-controlled Senate. It was time to gloat and settle scores. “It was evil,” Trump said of the attempt to end his presidency. “It was corrupt. It was dirty cops. It was leakers and liars.” These are times of pain, mass death, fear and deprivation and the Trump show may be losing its allure, exposing the empty space once filled by the empathy and seriousness of presidents...

    More great news ignored by the media. The number of coronavirus related deaths in the US on the 4th of July reached the lowest numbers since the beginning of the China coronavirus pandemic back in March. The number of deaths attributed to the China cornonavirus (both actually tested and presumed) reached the lowest number of cases since the beginning of the crisis. On Saturday July 4th the number of cases recorded dropped to 254 deaths. March 23, 2020, was the last time time the number of deaths for both actual and presumed cases of the China coronavirus were as low...

Trump’s speech in front of the South Dakota monument was followed by a dazzling firework display, when even Fox News cut away from the ceremonies to replace their coverage with talking heads discussing the coronavirus pandemic. The New York Times rushed to label the speech “divisive” and mocked the President for what they called “using the holiday and an official presidential address to mount a full-on culture war against a straw-man version of the left...

    WASHINGTON - U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday vowed to defeat the “radical left,” in an Independence Day speech at the White House that condemned recent protests against monuments to historical figures as attempts to destroy the United States. Trump claimed without evidence that 99% of coronavirus cases in the United States were “totally harmless.” In fact, many states marked a record number of new COVID-19 cases. In Texas alone, 7,890 patients were hospitalized after 238 new admissions over the past 24 hours. “There have always been those who seek to lie about the past in order to gain power...

    WASHINGTON - On a day meant for unity and celebration, President Donald Trump vowed to “safeguard our values” from enemies within - leftists, looters, agitators, he said - in a Fourth of July speech packed with all the grievances and combativeness of his political rallies. “We are now in the process of defeating the radical left, the anarchists, the agitators, the looters, and the people who, in many instances, have absolutely no clue what they are doing,” he said. “We will never allow an angry mob to tear down our statues, erase our history, indoctrinate our children. Even as officials...
