  • How the media convinces us we’re all outraged — even when no one cares

    (Skip) The Associated Press reported that Gillette’s new toxic-masculinity ad caused an “online uproar.” “Gillette Ad With a #MeToo Edge Attracts Support and Outrage,” claimed The New York Times. “Gillette faces backlash and boycott over ‘#MeToo advert,” ran a typical headline in the BBC this week. Outrage? Uproar? Backlash? I’d say it’s more like a hacklash. It’s journalists dealing out pretend outrage. (Skip) After an anonymous Twitter user posing as a hater posted video of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doing a cute “Breakfast Club” dance on a rooftop while she was apparently still in college, Republicans were reported to be going bonkers....
  • Nolte: Lying Media Shell-Shocked by Robert Mueller’s Fact Check

    Everyone in the establishment media knew BuzzFeed’s report about President Trump suborning perjury from his then-personal attorney, Michael Cohen, was a lie. What they did not expect was special counsel Robert Mueller dropping a fact check on them. They all knew it was a lie. How could they not? To begin with, BuzzFeed admitted it could not verify its own story. Secondly, the story made absolutely no sense. There were two huge tells proving the BuzzFeed story a lie. 1) It made no sense that the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., testified accurately about the very thing Trump reportedly told...

    Man, you gotta hand it to the news fakers over at the fake news site Buzzfeed (even its name screams out “fake news!”, doesn’t it?) . After all, how many news outlets can brag that they have out-faked CNN and the New York Times when it comes to reporting about President Donald Trump? After Thursday and Friday, when it first fake-reported a story – based solely on “anonymous sources” of course – claiming that then-Candidate Donald Trump ordered his crooked ex-attorney Michael Cohen to lie to the Special Counsel’s investigators about a planned real estate development in Moscow, and then...

    For liking hamburgers, the Washington Post praised Obama, but mocked Trump In 2014, the Washington Post published this article, which is called, “President Obama and cheeseburgers: A love story.”In 2019, the Washington Post published this article, which is called, “‘Trump has turned the White House into a White Castle’: President roasted for serving Clemson fast food.”Media bias at its finest.

    Government Shutdown, Day…um, what day is it? 28? 29? This fake, partial, sort of “shutdown” of parts of a quarter of the federal government has now dragged on so long it’s become impossible to keep up anymore. But oh, what a glorious fake government shutdown it became on Thursday. That day, January 17, 2019, will be remembered into posterity as the date when this became, without any doubt at all, the greatest, most entertaining government shutdown in the history of all government shutdowns. Just a day after Speaker San Fran Nan sent over a petty and utterly dishonest letter to...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) By dis-inviting President Donald Trump from delivering the annual State of the Union address to a joint session of congress, Speaker San Fran Nan provides the President with a golden opportunity to do one of two great things for our nation: Eliminate the State of the Union tradition entirely, or move it to America’s heartland, where it belongs, and deliver it to real Americans. Contrary to all the bad information spread all over social media yesterday, no president is under any constitutional obligation to give this speech. All the constitution requires of...

    An aide to President Obama boasted to the New York Times about lying and manipulating the media to sell the administration’s Iran policy. Mr. Obama himself proselytized for his health-care plan by saying that, despite mandatory requirements that outlawed millions of individual health plans, you’d be able to keep your existing plan. Nor is there the slightest ambiguity now: His administration deliberately lied to the American people about the origins of the 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya. We could go on. Candidate Obama, in a formal address, explained that Detroit’s financial troubles were due to its...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) What ever happened to Matt Drudge? – The blaring, all caps, bold-faced headlines atop the Drudge Report landing page this morning read “SHUTDOWN TURNS NIGHTMARE” and “GOVT PARALYZED”. My goodness, you mean to say that, here on Day 26 of the longest partial federal government fake “shutdown” ever, we’re finally starting to see major detrimental impacts to not just the government itself, but also to the public at large? That’s obviously what Matt Drudge wants you to believe. The trouble is, when you click on those headlines to read the stories behind...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) You know they’re in trouble when they start recycling fake news stories. – The fake editors at the Wall Street Journal have become so desperate they now feel the need to recycle Trump outrage stories in their unending efforts to keep the Democrat rabble roused. Over the weekend the Journal recycled the story from a year and a half ago that President Donald Trump did not allow note-takers in his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in mid-2017. This is not news – this is a story that the entirety of...

    During Thursday's edition of Hannity, host Sean Hannity pointed out how liberal journalists engaged in hypocrisy by deciding to dismiss the situation at the southern border as a “manufactured crisis.” Hannity also contrasted the media’s complete denial of a crisis at the border today with their declaration of code red over a similar situation at the border back in 2014, when their beloved President Obama was in office. After playing clips of Democrats dismissing the massive flow of illegal immigrants at the border as a “manufactured crisis,” Hannity talked about how “their best friends, the hate Trump media, constantly now...

    San Diego’s KUSI News reported Thursday that CNN asked them for a local news view on the border wall. When KUSI informed CNN that border patrol agents have uniformly told the station that the wall works, CNN lost interest. Thursday morning, CNN called the KUSI Newsroom asking if one of our reporters could give them a local view of the debate surrounding the border wall and government shutdown…We believe CNN declined a report from KUSI because we informed them that most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work. Here’s the clip...

It’s completely unacceptable that members of Congress can force a government shutdown on partisan lines & then have Congressional salaries exempt from that decision. Have some integrity.” Well, golly, our intrepid Millennial heroine is getting her chance to...

    At a Thursday morning press conference, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) showed little concern for the fact that illegal aliens crossing the border with impunity might be dangerous for Americans. “Let me just close by saying this: clearly there’s a disparity of shared values in terms of respecting the dignity and worth of everyone – being concerned about every death that happens, uh, because we live in an imperfect world, and that’s very sad,” Pelosi said. “But it is not a justification for having more children die in custody of be separated from their families.”

    Should schools have teachers carry guns? Abstract With 20 states having teachers and staff carrying guns to varying degrees on school property, we don’t need to guess how the policy would work. Fears of teachers carrying guns in terms of accidents or other problems have not materialized. Letting teachers carry is the only effective way to overcome the strategic advantages of mass public killers. The other alternatives to preventing mass public shootings have real limits.
