  • BuzzFeed editor, reporters could soon be under oath ("Russian spy dossier" lawsuit)

    McClatchy DC ^ | May 23, 2017 | Kevin G. Hall and Greg Gordon
    Lawyers for a Russian tech mogul suing online news site BuzzFeed for defamation will seek within the next two weeks to take sworn testimony from its editor and several reporters. The suit stems from BuzzFeed’s decision to become the first news operation to post online a former British spy’s dossier about Russia’s alleged scheme to help Donald Trump win the presidency last fall. A federal judge in Miami on Monday rejected BuzzFeed’s bid to move the case to New York. In a phone interview Tuesday, attorney Val Gurvits, representing a Russian web hosting company and its owner who were named...
  • There Remains No Evidence Of Trump-Russia Collusion

    Where is the evidence of President Trump's collusion with Russia? The Wall Street Journal – no particular fan of Trump – characterizes the DOJ charge to Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, as fatally open-ended, vague, and flawed. His instruction lists no federal statutes and invites a fishing expedition into trivial matters. Journalists covering the story appear to disagree on what Mueller is supposed to do: Is he to “oversee the investigation into ties between President Trump’s campaign and Russian officials” or “investigate possible coordination between President Trump’s associates and Russian officials?” The political feeding frenzy has, to date, brought forth the...
  • No, Trump's budget does not contain a $2 trillion 'math error'

    The media fools telling you that simply don't know how the tax code works. For the past 18 hours or so, the mainstream media has joined online lefty sites with the seemingly big news that the 10-year Trump budget plan contains a $2 trillion “math error” that makes the premise of the entire thing totally laughable. What they’re telling you is that the White House counted the same positive numbers twice - once assuming that economic growth would render tax rate cuts revenue neutral, and then counting the same economic growth as the cause of an entirely different $2 trillion...

    How many innocent people — including children — does a Muslim terrorist have to murder before it becomes the lead story on TV news? Apparently more than 22, judging from what happened in the aftermath of the latest savagery in Manchester, England, Monday night. So here was MSNBC, with Comrade Chris Matthews speaking over a live video feed from the blood-spattered Ariana Grande concert, the live screams of the terrified young girls in the background, as he says with disinterest:
  • Most Say Media, Not Russians, Tilting the Election (Flashback, October 2016)

    05/23/2017 7:44:27 PM PDT · by Faith Presses On · 13 replies
    Most voters aren’t buying the story that the Russians are trying to manipulate the election for Donald Trump but think the U.S. media is trying to swing things for Hillary Clinton. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 56% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it’s more likely that many in the media are working to get Clinton elected president. Just 26% disagree and say it’s more likely that the Russian government is working to get Trump elected. Eighteen percent (18%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Ninety-one percent (91%) of voters supporting...
  • Sean Hannity Is Going to War With FOX News: "I Am Not FOX News.com, I Retract Nothing,"

    The FOX News host is refusing to stop his investigation into the grisly murder of Seth Rich. Sean Hannity, FOX News host went out on a limb Tuesday in defense of his coverage, calling his critics "phony hypocrites." Hannity wants to know who killed Seth Rich, even if the mainstream media and his own colleagues want him to stop. The murder of Seth Rich, a young Democratic National Committee staffer, has inspired a lot of speculation in the right-wing media and on FOX, the gist of which is that he was murdered by Democratic operatives as revenge for being a...

    The Hill ^ | 1 hour ago | By Ben Kamisar
    A major liberal group is targeting advertisers for Sean Hannity's Fox News show as they look to push back against his promotion of a conspiracy theory surrounding a killed Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer. Media watchdog group Media Matters For America on Tuesday published a list of Hannity's advertisers — a long list that includes major companies such as Allstate, Angie's List, Bayer, Capitol One, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Mercedes-Benz and Publishers Clearing House While the list was published with little context, it comes as Media Matters continues to blast Hannity for claiming, without evidence, that Seth Rich leaked DNC emails...

    Breitbart ^ | 05/23/2017 | Charlie Spiering
    Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chief John Podesta attacked the First Amendment rights of the free press as he continued to spin his conspiracy theory of Russia colluding with American news websites to damage Democrats. During a conversation with the Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty, he cited the “participation and the support of the alt-right media,” naming “guys like Sean Hannity” and “disgusting” Newt Gingrich for helping spread “fake news” to hurt Democrats. He specifically criticized Hannity and Gingrich for asking questions about DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder and whether or not it had a connection with Wikileaks. Podesta explained that it...

    SHTF Plan ^ | 5-23-2017 | Mac Slavo
    Whenever there is a mass killing of any kind in Europe, every reasonable person jumps to the same conclusion every time. They assume that the attack was committed by a Muslim, and it’s not an outlandish assumption to make. Nine times out of ten they are right. The media however, often tries to pin it on right-wing extremists. Or at the very least, they’ll try to leave that possibility on the table for as long as they can. They won’t commit to an Islamic terror narrative until the authorities confirm what everyone already knew. That scenario played out again after...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough said that President Trump “revealed himself as the jackass that leaked top secret Israeli intel,” adding that the intel that President Trump allegedly leaked was “about somebody on the inside of a terror organization that killed 20 little girls and their mothers last night.” Scarborough first observed that in denying that he had mentioned Israel in his meeting with the Russians, Trump was denying something of which he had not been accused. Scarborough said that was like a man who runs into a police station saying “my wife’s missing and it’s not my gun that’s...

    And That’s The Way It Is…: Shortly after last night’s bombing of the Ariana Grande venue in Manchester, England, CBS reporter David Leavitt, who is such a “professional” fake journalist that he has often bragged about how he is a proud part of the “resistance” against President Donald Trump, sent out the following Tweet: “Multiple Confirmed Fatalities at Manchester Arena. The last time I listened to Ariana Grande I almost died too.” If you watch CBS to get your news, you are getting your news from a bunch of ghouls.

    Canada Free Press ^ | 05/23/17 | Roger Aronoff
    The climate of hate created by the left, including the media, clearly exceeds anything we’ve seen before towards any other president, and that is saying a lot. Following President Donald Trump’s generally well-received speech in Saudi Arabia to an audience that included the heads of 55 Muslim-majority countries, the concern on the part of many in the media was whether or not this would relieve some of the pressure he is under back home. Bob Schieffer of CBS News acknowledged on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” that Trump sounded “presidential” during his speech. But even that was challenged by substitute host John...

    A couple of years ago, our paper which serves two large counties, switched from doing its own national review of AP and other source stories and started using the USA Today national insert. People at that time objected because of the extreme left-wing slant of the USA Today staff, but the paper cited costs. Well, during the Presidential campaign, USA Today was in for Hillary with both feet. Then came all the 'fake news' and the chief editor of the paper is now asking the readers if we want to go back to the paper vetting the stories or keeping...

    I am not trying to debate Joe McCarthy's place in history. Thanks to Ann Coulter's book "Treason", I know he did a lot of good work. Nevertheless, his name has become associated with fearmongering. I think in that respect, the time might be right to start speaking to the #fakenews and #fakejournalists those words "Have you no decency?" Rachel MadMcCarthy, Scott PelMcCarthey, Andrea MitchMcCarthey, etc. Are we at that point, fellow FREEPers?

    Roger Ailes was no genius, not in the league of Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein. The founding chairman of Fox News Channel, who died last week from complications after suffering a fall, understood and respected Middle America from whence he came. When the opportunity arrived to address the legitimate concerns of "flyover territory" about biased news coverage that frequently disparaged and stereotyped Middle America's values and beliefs, he seized it. While the cultural, political and especially media elites mocked the churchgoing, patriotic "family values" of conservatives, Ailes and Rupert Murdoch saw an opening, and they began appealing to a demographic...

    Hillary Clinton's inability to honestly assess her 2016 election loss is turning slightly comic. And she will be the last to know. She has fallen into a trap of her own devising, feigning an honest self-assessment in public. Salena Zito has emerged as one of the most tuned in journalists covering politics today. In an era of elitist journalists, Zito has an ear for the common folk of the de-industrializing Midwest. That is why she gained a degree of journalistic immortality more significant than a Pulitzer Prize for her election coverage of 2016, by summing up Donald Trump's relationship to...

    “Are you now, or have you ever been, a supporter of Donald J. Trump?” It would be ominous if witnesses in congressional hearings had to endure this type of McCarthyite interrogation. But what do you call it when sportswriters demand that a professional athlete answer the same question? New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, for example, calls himself a “good friend” of the new president. Consequently, the football star faced journalists’ demands to “publicly disavow Trump’s actions,” as one USA Today columnist wrote. Brady, not wanting to detract from his team’s Super Bowl preparations, responded by claiming his “right to...
