    “Creative” editing by Katie Couric, who must have graduated from the Joseph Goebbels School of Journalism, has intentionally and significantly changed the response of VCDL members in a new video called “Under the Gun” - and I have PROOF. VCDL APPROACHED TO BE PART OF A “DOCUMENTARY” I received an email in March of 2015 from Kristin Lazure, a producer for Atlas Films, asking if VCDL would be part of "a documentary about the gun violence prevention movement in America.” In the email, Kristin said, "Some of the storylines we're exploring include the legislative process on the federal and state...

    The Telegraph ^ | 05-22-2016 | Henry Bodkin
    Hollywood is in the grip a child sexual abuse scandal similar to that of Jimmy Savile in Britain, Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood has claimed. The 35-year-old former child actor said paedophiles had been protected by powerful figures in the movie business and that abuse was probably still taking place. In an interview with the Sunday Times, Wood said he had been protected from abuse as he was growing up, but that other child actors had been regularly “preyed upon” at parties by industry figures... ...Wood said the abuse was allowed to continue because victims “can’t speak as...

    Glenn Beck has been shamelessly man-crushing on Mark Zuckerberg after the meeting he and 16 other conservatives had with the billionaire. The radio talker has been quick to assure conservatives that Zuckerberg is “sincere” and can be “trusted” despite reports from several Facebook whistleblowers that the social media giant actively suppresses conservative news stories and boosts leftwing causes like Black Lives Matter in their “trending” news section. If Beck read Breitbart, he would have ample proof of why Zuckerberg is anything but an impartial player when it comes to politics. Here are ten reasons why Facebook shouldn’t be given the...

    He has said that the wall would be built from precast concrete and steel and that it could be 50 feet tall, if not higher. After calling for it to extend across the entire 2,000-mile southern border, he more recently said half that length could be sufficient because of natural barriers. He has pegged the cost at $4 billion to $12 billion, most recently settling on around $10b. Some see that as low. “There’s a lot of logistics involved in this, and I don’t know how thoroughly they’ve thought it out,” said Todd Sternfeld, chief executive of Superior Concrete, a...

    It turns out the algorithms that govern the internet can be as biased as the people who create and update them. That may be the most surprising takeaway from the political bias scandal that has enveloped Facebook after former employees told the tech blog Gizmodo that they would sometimes suppress conservative-friendly items and promote liberal reports on the newsfeed’s “trending topics” box. Even if no humans were involved, however, the algorithm would not have been completely neutral because it was written by humans, digital media analysts say.

At any given moment there are over 150 million users roaming Mark Zuckerberg’s monstrosity, and you can bet that some percentage of them rarely read anything outside the online utopia. So, while we may not like to admit it, the “trending” section at the upper right of the page has become frighteningly important. Facebook swears that it determines what’s “trending” by analyzing reader preference. If it’s popular on the site - meaning...

GQ did a story where it mentioned it talked to members of Melania’s past including family members and without permission wrote about a brother she claims to have never known about. Trump asked the publisher to respect her father’s wishes for privacy but that didn’t happen. The journalist also wrote Melania’s father being investigated for tax evasion which Melania denied. I think that set her off forcing her to address this on Facebook to many of her fans who support her...

With a nod to Pennsylvania’s high rate of gun ownership, she declared: “There is a Second Amendment, there are constitutional rights.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Trust in the news media is being eroded by perceptions of inaccuracy and bias, fueled in part by Americans' skepticism about what they read on social media. Just 6 percent of people say they have a lot of confidence in the media, putting the news industry about equal to Congress and well below the public's view of other institutions. In this presidential campaign year, Democrats were more likely to trust the news media than Republicans or independents. But trust today also goes beyond the traditional journalistic principles of accuracy, balance and fairness. Faced with ever-increasing sources of...

    There is a pistol-packing revolution going on in America. Nearly 13 million Americans have permits to carry concealed handguns — triple the number just nine years ago — and that figure is low because not every state reports. It's puzzling that so many Americans are choosing to arm themselves at a time when the FBI tells us violent crime and property crime have been falling dramatically for two decades. In search of handgun permit holders, I drove out to the Texas Firearms Festival, an outdoor gun extravaganza held near Austin where firearms fanciers get to shoot everything they see. I'm...

Before explaining the insufferable fingerprints of corporate media influence, the first and most important takeaway must be emphasized. Regardless of everything, a strong voter turnout is critical. All efforts, for all candidates, should be made to get out supporters on election day.

This revelation comes even as the Obama administration is working to finalize and implement new rules for Federal Firearm License holders (FFLs) regarding the reporting of stolen weapons. Breitbart News previously reported that Obama’s January 5 executive gun controls would place even more reporting requirements –read, regulations — on the backs of FFLs, and CPRC’s new numbers highlight the lack of necessity for these new measures. According to CPRC, there were approximately 16 millions guns sold...

    “The police officers were beating the protesters with batons, and were also beating the media,” Fields told TheDC. “They hit Direna and me with batons. They hit other members of the press in order to get them to move out of the street.” “Direna had a camera in her hand and I had a microphone, and we were being hit,” she said. “When I fell to the ground I said at one point, ‘I’m just covering this! I’m covering this!’ And the officer just said, ‘Come on, get up, get up,’ before pulling me up by my jacket.'” In the...

    Dashcam video proves that journalism professor was lying when she said police stopped her for “walking while black” I’d like to think that a journalism professor would be very much interested in telling the truth, and very much against lying.However, that’s not always the case.In October 2015, professor Dorothy Bland, the dean of the Frank W. and Sue Mayborn School of Journalism and the director for the Frank W. Mayborn Graduate Institute of Journalism at the University of North Texas, wrote this column for the Dallas Morning News, where she claimed that the police had stopped her for “walking while black.”However,...
  • The Dishonest Trumpeter Narrative: ... (how it works) And all he got was this ZOT!

    FULL TITLE: The Dishonest Trumpeter Narrative: “We Switched from Cruz to Trump After Chicago!” Is a Lie ... When Trump people wage psychological warfare, we must remember that it’s phony and dishonest like the man himself — as I will prove in this post. Let’s go straight to their phony psychological warfare. Trump people have been pushing a narrative that says: “I was for Cruz until he failed to support Trump’s free speech in Chicago on March 11. Now I’m all in for Trump.” This narrative is a lie from top to bottom. First, let’s look at some of the...

    A disgusting article at the National Enquirer claims Ted Cruz cheated on his wife, which evidently spawned the hashtag #CruzSexScandal. The allegations, of course, are fake. And this author will eat her car if proven wrong. That is a promise.On Facebook, Donald Trump responded to the fake story by saying he did not read it, and in his typical statesman-like manner continued: “Likewise, I have nothing to do with the National Enquirer and unlike Lyin’ Ted Cruz I do not surround myself with political hacks and henchman and then pretend total innocence.” Not surprisingly, National Enquirer CEO David Pecker...

    Link goes directly to picture of the article that's good enough to read. FULL Disclosure: I'm not a Cruz supporter, but I hate this kind of sleaze and I'm hoping that we can put this to rest before it gets submitted 500 times. The entire article is based off of the threat from a hoax "Anonymous" account on Twitter, which later turned out to be a RickRoll (all related tweets have since been deleted). I am pretty sure the "details" are actually lifted from replies to the original tweet, LOL. Since they're deleted, I can't be sure. Point being, it...

    Ted Cruz spoke to Chris Cuomo this morning on CNN about the Twitter battle that took place between the two of them last night on Western Tuesday. This is what he had to say: TRANSCRIPT Cruz: But what Donald did last night, and listen, youÂ’re in New York, youÂ’ve seen this a lot. When Donald gets scared, when he gets angry, when heÂ’s threatened, he begins yelling, he begins screaming, he begins often cursing, and he begins trying to be a bully. So last night Donald threatened my wife, he went directly after my wife. And I gotta tell...

    On CBS This Morning on Tuesday, correspondent Chip Reid took notes from YouTube to find out what kids thought about the presidential election. Reid asked fifth graders at a Virginia charter school about the mechanics of the election cycle, insinuating that kids were more civil than the GOP candidates had been behaving. The series of questions focused mostly on how "mean" Trump was, but Reid gave the kids opportunities to praise Muslims and expound on “women’s rights.”
