    An upcoming media service aimed at analyzing news will have a hotline for members of the public and political candidates to flag what they consider fake news seen on the internet. NewsGuard is set to announce the telephone hotline, as well as an encrypted digital hotline, which can be resources for people to flag what they believe to be fake news. “We’ve already seen one case of a candidate citing an endorsement from a bogus site that was created by supporters of that candidate. This is a particularly insidious variety of fake news because it is aimed directly at unsuspecting...
  • Chelsea Clinton calls ‘fake news’ on NY Times journo’s election night claim, update ensues

    New York Times reporter Amy Chozick has a new book coming out about Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. One article outlining the book at the Times is titled “They Were Never Going to Let Me Be President” (which is reportedly what Clinton said after it was clear she lost on election night). "Things were already looking bad when Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne." The title of the tweet was the opening sentence of the article. Chelsea Clinton took exception to that: "Hi @amychozick! The 1st line (“Things were already looking bad when Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne”) is false. I...
  • MSNBC Eager for Anti-Gun Protesters to Vote Out GOP in November

    Throughout MSNBC’s Friday coverage of student walk-outs across the country to demand gun control, the liberal cable channel’s anchors and correspondent could barely contain their excitement about the prospect of those anti-gun protesters mobilizing to vote pro-gun rights Republicans out of office in the November midterms. “Right now we are walking right past the President’s hotel, actually, on Pennsylvania Avenue. And the students are chanting, ‘Vote him out.’ It’s pretty clear the target of their ire here, the politicians they feel like have not been listening to them,” correspondent Garrett Haake enthusiastically announced while reporting from a protest march in...

  • Untold Story of Broadcast Ownership

    04/20/2018 6:56:20 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | April 20, 2018 | Armstrong Williams
    Last year, the Sinclair Broadcasting Group agreed to acquire the Tribune Media Company. Since then the competitors of free-to-the-home broadcast television have been among the loudest voices crying "the sky is falling," and the government -- the FCC and DOJ -- should deny approval of the merger. This chorus has been joined by adversaries wishing to create political division, and seeking to pull the power-levers of government to have Sinclair "investigated" for "bias" and claims of "fake news." Let's get some context and perspective. Free-to-the-home television in America, one of the nation's most heavily regulated industries, is in a fight...

    So when do we get to put our majority-conservative House and Senate to good use and begin to take our country back? When is it our turn? The slime has oozed above the gunwales. Our president, vice president, their wives and their every conservative supporter - from our truly conservative representatives/senators to conservative voters - have become the brunt of every sort of attack from leftist ‘leadership’, their constituency, and the liberal left media/entertainment industry that empowers them. Obama, Clinton, Comey, Mueller, Rosenstein, by name, have all become trademarks for the unsurpassable height of doubledealing, double-standarded hypocrisy. They have been...

    NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd has a wife who’s active in Democratic Party strategic communications, and sometimes donates to Democrats. In 2012, Kristian Denny Todd contributed $2,500 to Sen. Tim Kaine. Todd never felt any need to disclose this during his three recent Kaine interviews on NBC (August 7, September 18, and October 23). But Maverick Mail & Strategies, the firm Mrs. Todd founded in 2007 with fellow James Webb aides Steve Jarding and Jessica Vanden Berg, did heavy lifting for openly socialist Bernie Sanders for President this year. Open Secrets shows a bill for $1.992 million made...

    The Pulitzer prizes seem to be awarded now for who stirs the pot most, not who uncovers the truth. Because if the truth of the Russia collusion investigation were important, House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, who exposed FBI and Obama administration investigative misbehavior in this bogus scandal, would have walked off with the prize. Instead, we have the New York Times and the Washington Post sharing the honors for national reporting on the matter. The national reporting prize went to The Times and The Washington Post for their coverage of Mr. Trump's possible ties to Russia – a recognition...

    A startling video of former President Obama calling President Trump a “complete dipshit” is a coordinated stunt from filmmaker Jordan Peele as a public service announcement to warn about fake videos. The video appears to show Obama beginning to issue a warning. However, viewers don't hear the former president's voice; instead, Obama’s lips move in sync with Peele's voice. “We’re entering an era in which our enemies can make it look like anyone is saying anything at any point at time — even if they would never say those things,” Peele says voicing the former president. “So, for instance, they...

    Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey is making a pathetic spectacle of himself as he pitches his book with a whirlwind media blitz. Comey’s Sunday interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC managed to achieve higher ratings than its floundering American Idol lead-in. However, the ratings did not even rise to half the number of viewers who tuned into the Stormy Daniels interview on CBS’s Sixty Minutes last month. Each interview was a tawdry attempt to smear President Trump. However, compared to Comey’s self-righteous façade under which he sought to obscure his own misdeeds of lying to Congress under oath and...

    A spokesperson for the office of special counsel Robert Mueller has released a warning about the media’s “many” fake news reports regarding the investigation into President Trump and Russian collusion, reports the Washington Times. “What I have been telling all reporters is that many stories about ohur investigation have been inaccurate,” the Mueller spokesperson said. “Be very cautious about any source that claims to have knowledge about our investigation and dig deep into what they claim before reporting on it. If another outlet reports something, don’t run with it unless you have your own sourcing to back it up.” The...

They believe the media are more interested in promoting their left-wing views than reporting the truth.I am, I note with sadness, a member of that half.Here is but one more example: the New York Times best-seller list.As a writer (who, for the record, had a previous book on that list), I have long known it isn’t a best-seller list, and I don’t pay attention to it. But I paid attention last week to see whether my recently published book, which...

    As James Comey’s new book exploded onto the scene, CNN pumped the breaks on its “Facts First” campaign to revisit perhaps the most salacious claim contained in the Steele dossier. The dossier alleged that Donald Trump had paid ladies of the night to micturate upon one another in Moscow, and that the Russian government had taped the horrific escapade. To date, no part of these allegations has been substantiated. Intrepid NewsBusters analysts examined transcripts of all CNN broadcasts that aired between April 12 and April 16, finding 77 separate mentions of the absurd claim. The cable network feverishly replayed a...

    Tuning in this morning. Trump was in Miami yesterday. Trump met with local business leaders...Some hispanic and women. During the meeting, Trump spoke the truth about unemployment--blacks and Hispanics are benefiting Bigly from the economy. Miami media is focused like a laser beam on issues affecting minorities. Every perceived problem in either one of those demographic groups is highlighted. Today, the day after the visit, I haven't seen ONE SINGLE MEDIA outlet report or repeat the good economic news for minorities. Granted, it is so early I haven't had time to look at the print rags. But tv "news" is...

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency violated the law when it approved a $43,000 soundproof phone booth last year for the office of embattled Administrator Scott Pruitt, a congressional watchdog unit said on Monday. The Government Accountability Office said the EPA violated the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act. The law prohibits an agency from obligating more than $5,000 in federal funds to furnish, redecorate or make improvements in the office of a presidential appointee without first notifying appropriations committees in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. The EPA also violated the Antideficiency Act, which prohibits federal agencies from...

    U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke took an unnecessary charter flight in June that cost taxpayers over $12,000, the Interior Department’s internal watchdog said on Monday - travel linked to his visit to a professional hockey team in Nevada. The report from the department’s Office of Inspector General came amid mounting pressure on Trump Cabinet officials over their ethics and spending habits while in office. “We determined that Zinke’s use of chartered flights in fiscal year (FY) 2017 generally followed relevant law, policy, rules, and regulations,” the report said.
