    Anyone else notice the new BS Daily Tracking poll that ABC launched on Sunday showing Trump down 12 that the MSM wouldn't shut up about (despite 4 other polls showing tie/lead) from ABC website - "This is the first in what will be daily ABC News tracking poll reports from now to Election Day". Only issue, it didn't actually update today at all. Why?
  • Columbia Journalism Review’s Truth Problem

    The truth, as they say, hurts. Nowhere is this better illustrated recently than over there at The Columbia Journalism Review. Where CJR staff writer and senior Delacorte fellow David Uberti has penned this seriously misleading piece about my recent remarks on CNN concerning the “rigged election” controversy brought to the fore by Donald Trump. Among other things Uberti says this: The consensus headline from the third and final presidential debate was Republican candidate Donald Trump’s refusal to commit to accepting the 2016 election results. It was a stunning rebuke of American political norms from the nominee of a major political party,...

    After we have been insulted by another faked poll we have to keep in mind that Wikileaks just released an email from the Clinton camp discussing ways to use over sampling to build a fake narrative that Hillary Clinton is pulling away. Donald Trump’s support among Catholics is at a record high level; and Hillary Clinton’s support among Catholics is at a record low. We know this because of a survey done by the Washington Post. The latest Washington Post ABC News poll of Catholic likely voters said Trump is leading 50/34. So where is the lie? On October...

    The Trump campaign is moving resources from the key battleground state of Virginia — a sign that the Republican presidential nominee is giving up hopes of winning there, according to a new report. The campaign “pulling out of Virginia” surprised staffers and upset those working to beat Hillary Clinton there. The news was delivered to staff there in a late Wednesday conference call. “I think it’s totally premature for the campaign to be pulling out of Virginia after so much work and all the hundreds … of hours of volunteer time and thousands and thousands of volunteers,” former Virginia state...

    None other than Arizona Sen. John McCain defended Donald Trump’s recent comments about post traumatic stress disorder. Trump was criticized for stating that unfortunately, veterans suffering from PTSD who end up committing suicide aren’t as “strong” as some of their comrades. “When you talk about the mental health problems, when people come back from war and combat and they see maybe what people in this room have seen many times over — and you’re strong and you can handle it — but a lot of people can’t handle it and they see horror stories,” Trump told veterans at a campaign...

    Trump's response makes perfect sense to somebody putting out a sales pitch, and the outrage is completely phony. Trump is suggesting that the folks in the crowd are strong as he pivots to the discussion of mental health issues, because, frankly, a lot of people who need help don't actually want to admit it. He's providing an answer to these veterans without suggesting to them that any of them in particular need to take advantage of it. It's actually a clever way of approaching the discussion that somebody with Trump's background might understand and somebody who has spent his or...

The first-term senator, then 47, had no meaningful national security experience, a liability Hillary Clinton had highlighted throughout the Democratic primaries. And he happened to be vacationing in Hawaii. Campaigning in Pennsylvania, John McCain recounted a phone call he had just had with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili. "Today, we are all Georgians,” the hawkish war hero said, drawing cheers from the crowd of several thousand. The Obama team was worried about losing voters of Eastern European descent as a result of McCain's hard-line rhetoric...

It seems like this only happens in big cities, right? “These people are burning down their own neighborhoods, how ridiculous,” observers say. They feel safe in their belief that the issue is merely a war on cops, and it’s nothing that could happen to them. While cities like Milwaukee and Baltimore have been hard hit, keep in mind that Ferguson, Missouri is a relatively small town with a population of just over 21,000 people at the last census.

This is how Daniel Dale, a reporter from the Toronto Star and firsthand witness to the events, described what happened, according to the Post: The baby was one row in front of me, three or four rows from the stage, at Trump's event at a high school...

The SKS was designed in the 40’s in Russia. It is such a basic rifle that it is legal in California with no modification.

Even for Trump, though, the last few weeks have presented a stunning parade of howlers, fibs, falsehoods and fabrications - also known as lies. The thing about Trump is that he's so blase about lying, and does it so frequently, that people tend to forget how many made-up facts they've heard from him.

Williams shortly afterwards told Jon Stewart on the Daily Show (45 second mark of video below) that he made eye contact with the man on the lead horse of a pro-government group on horseback and camels whipping the protesters. Unfortunately for the viability of Brian Williams' fib, the New York Times reported yesterday he was actually reporting in relative safety from a balcony near Tahrir Square.

    A months-long internal investigation of Brian Williams by NBC News has turned up 11 instances in which the anchorman publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits, according to a person familiar with details of the probe. NBC undertook the examination of Williams’ statement after he apologized in early February for saying on “NBC Nightly News” that a military helicopter in which he was traveling at the start of the Iraq War had been damaged by rocket fire. His account was challenged by soldiers who were on the flight, leading to a furor that prompted NBC to suspend Williams for six...

    Neatly hidden in his new budget that slashes hundreds of millions of dollars from the public university system, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has proposed that universities no longer be required to report the number of sexual assaults on campus to the Department of Justice. It also includes language to, “Delete the requirement that any person employed at an institution who witnesses a sexual assault on campus or receives a report from a student enrolled in the institution that the student has been sexually assaulted report the assault to the dean of students.” No explanation for the deletions is given.

    Truth-Telling and the News Media from Lee Webb Feb 13, 2015 Category: Articles NBC announced Tuesday that it suspended its lead news anchor Brian Williams for six months without pay. Network brass concluded that Williams embellished his experiences covering stories over the years; most notably that he was in a U.S. Army helicopter that was hit by enemy fire during the Iraq War in 2003.I’ve taken more than a passing interest in the story since I share a couple of things in common with Mr. Williams. First, before coming to Ligonier Ministries, I spent nineteen years in a position similar to his,...

    The space-time continuum called The News by Jon Rappoport February 10, 2015 “The news isn’t a just a thing, a person, a message. It’s a hallucination pretending to be real, as if a dreamer has suddenly risen and broken through the surface of the ocean, and now he can see the shore and the glittering buildings…and when he reaches the beach, he can walk into the city and actually watch very important people doing very important things all around him…and that’s supposed to be the up-to-the-minute news. But actually, it’s the reverse. The news is the dream, not the...

    ... Mrs. Obama has been photographed at famous spots including the Forbidden City and Great. She has won compliments for her elegant clothing and her interactions with ordinary people. She visited part of the Great Wall in the northern Beijing suburbs. There, the first lady and her daughters walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: "Loyal to Chairman Mao." T-shirts of President Barack Obama in a Mao hat that are common at Beijing tourist sites were absent from souvenir stalls Sunday, although at least one vendor...

    You know this is the story the liberal media is dying to tell: Obamacare--The Triumphant Comeback! So like the dove returning to the Ark, there was the BBC's Katty Kay, guest-hosting today for Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe, first to proclaim the good news. Based on the latest enrollment numbers, Kay enthused "amazing how quickly we are starting to see the obamacare story change its tone." Really? Tell us, Katty: of the people who have enrolled in Obamacare, how many have actually paid their premiums? And what percentage were healthy young people, needed to avoid an actuarial disaster? Take your...
