  • Poll: Majority says mainstream media publishes fake news

    The Hill ^ | May 24, 2017 | Jonathan Easley
    Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum. According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll, which was provided exclusively to The Hill, 65 percent of voters believe there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media. That number includes 80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats. Eighty-four percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online. “Much of the media is now just another part of the...
  • “Good, Moderate” Muslims Did NOT March, Or Disavow The Manchester Massacre.

    It’s been said, “The ‘good, moderate Muslim,’ is the one who holds you down, while the other, ones cut your head off.” It seems that the “moderate Muslim” is the one who quietly hopes or cheers for you die. He or she seems to never disavow even the bloodiest murders, or shouts of, “Death To America.” This Silence Of The Muslims is drowning them…like a boiling sea collapsing down and all around them. You pointy-headed, “Western,” elite morons: “terrorism is not Islam,” as you often whine. But the terrorists often seem to all be Muslims.

    "There is a good chance the president of the United States is watching us right now,” Cuomo said. “He watches this show. He monitors the media. He criticizes it. All of that is within his right. But with power comes accountability. And there is something wrong with him attacking a free press. There is something wrong with him wanting to change the libel laws.”

    Honestly, does anyone but the most dyed in the wool Democrat truly believe what the left leaning media has tried to bamboozle the American public with, during the first 100 days of the Trump Presidency? Not likely all that many in the end. Those who believe that Trump is Putin’s puppet now have little factual basis to do so other than the 89% negative reporting the left-wing media has been shoveling, so it’s a shallow belief at best, one that will change as facts come out, and as the Trump agenda is implemented. I have a close friend who votes...

    I just watched Season 2 , Episode 7, of Futurama, on Netflix. In this cute but endemically Leftist cartoon series, Richard Nixon is a recurrent character, always portrayed as a scientifically preserved, living head in a jar. He is always tricky, conniving, and stupid. But in this particular episode he runs for President in the year 3000. He is now depicted as one of the most typically evil, scheming, destructive personalities ever spawned. In fact—at the end—Nixon is ultimately transformed into a vicious, two-story tall, death cyborg who rampages around just killing people and crushing automobiles. He apparently does this...
  • WHCD Host Hasan Minhaj Blasts ‘Liar-in-Chief’ Trump: ‘The Orange Man Behind the Muslim Ban’

    Comedian Hasan Minhaj slammed President Donald Trump and members of his administration Saturday night during the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner (WHCA) in Washington, D.C. The Daily Show correspondent called Trump the “liar-in-chief,” ripped the president’s immigration policy, and fired off several personal insults at Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “Welcome to the series finale of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” Minhaj’s politically-charged monologue began. “The leader of our country is not here. And that’s because he lives in Moscow,” Minhaj said to applause from the crowd of celebrities, politicians, and journalists, many of them from...

    The survey, conducted by Quinnipiac University, found that 66% of voters are "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" that climate change will harm them or their family personally. And voters said they want those views reflected in policy. More than three fifths of voters — 62% — opposed Trump's targeting of regulations intended to fight climate change. A total of 72% of respondents said the government should not cut funding for scientific research—something proposed by the White House.

    Holy smoking gun, Batman! Once you wave away all the smoke created by our dishonest media, the story of this past week was pretty simple. The Trump-Russia-Conspiracy narrative is falling apart. The Obama-Spied-on-his-Political-Opposition narrative is coming together. The media has given credence to Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff's hysterical charges about how the Republican chair of the committee, Devin Nunes, made his latest discoveries. But Schiff is a dishonest McCarthyite, spewing insinuations and accusations without any proof to back them up. Nunes, on the other hand, has obviously gotten hold of solid intel showing that Obama spied on Trump and his...

    Breitbart ^ | 22 Jan 2017 | Joel B. Pollak
    The mainstream media lost no time in attempting to undermine President Donald Trump, as opposed to actually reporting information. After eight years of kowtowing to Obama, they have suddenly discovered a civic responsibility to hold the government accountable. But they are focusing on minutiae, and in some cases actually telling lies, both of omission and commission. That risks alienating the public even further — making it harder, actually, for the media to act as watchdogs.

    Nancy Sinatra had some strong words for CNN after the news outlet published an article on its website with the headline “Nancy Sinatra not happy Trump using father's song at inauguration.” News broke this week that President-elect Donald Trump and his wife Melania will dance to Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” as their first dance at the Liberty Ball on Friday. CNN quoted what seems to be a now-deleted tweet from Nancy Sinatra that read “Just remember the first line of the song” in response to a question about her father’s song being used during the inauguration. The first line of...

    "That's what you guys should be writing and covering," new White House press secretary Sean Spicer angrily lectured reporters on Saturday during his first remarks from the podium of the press briefing room. He was referring to the delay in Senate confirmation for President Donald Trump's pick to lead the CIA, Congressman Mike Pompeo, but the comment came after a long digression about how many people had shown up to watch Trump be sworn in as president. "This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period," Spicer said, contradicting all available data. Aerial photos have indicated that former...

    White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer angrily accused the media Saturday of “false reporting” on the inauguration as part of what he called a “shameful” attempt to minimize enthusiasm for President Trump, beginning his tenure as the administration’s top spokesman on a combative note. Spicer summoned the press to the briefing room at the end of Trump’s first full day in office to specifically condemn two pieces of reporting – a reporter’s erroneous claim, since retracted, that an MLK bust was removed from the Oval Office; and photos appearing to show light crowds at Friday’s inauguration. Spicer called the former...

    Now that I no longer do a weekly TV show, I have more time to read my local paper. Sadly, that's The New York Times. The Times actually does some good reporting, but their political and economic coverage is filled with deceit. Can I find deceit every day? You bet. Take a look at a few days just last week. --Thursday: The front page: "NAFTA's promise is falling short, Mexicans agree." Wow, the Times now embraces Donald Trump's position on trade? Economists estimate that 14 million jobs depend upon NAFTA, but people everywhere often oppose trade because the smaller number...

    (CNN)CNN's decision to publish carefully sourced reporting about the operations of our government is vastly different than Buzzfeed's decision to publish unsubstantiated memos. The Trump team knows this. They are using Buzzfeed's decision to deflect from CNN's reporting, which has been matched by the other major news organizations. We are fully confident in our reporting. It represents the core of what the First Amendment protects, informing the people of the inner workings of their government; in this case, briefing materials prepared for President Obama and President-elect Trump last week.

Some KKK leaders divulged that they were paid hundreds of dollars in cash each day of filming to compel them on camera to distort the facts of their lives to fit the documentary’s predetermined narrative: tension between Klan members and relatives of theirs who wanted to get out of the Klan. The findings are based on an exclusive Variety investigation based on interviews with over two dozen...

    In a year when there were hundreds seismic shifts amid the tectonic plates within the body politic, one of the most important was the revelation that Media Polling is just as brutally biased as the media entities who present the polling results. With election 2016 behind us, and before 2017 arrives, the truth behind the intentionally constructed deception must not simply fade back into the shadows. Never again should the American voter trust the polling presented by corporate media. Everything about it is a financed and manufactured fraud.

    The Obama administration struck back at Russia to cover for the embarrassment of Hillary Clinton's abysmal loss in the Presidential Election November 8, 2016. In addition, the Democrats have lost 1,046 key positions in the upcoming administration and have chosen Russia as their scapegoat. In retaliation, his administration is ejecting 35 Russian intelligence operatives and 3 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) operatives. The latter stand accused of attempts at hacking the Secretary of State Election websites of the states of Georgia, West Virginia, and Kentucky. Those are the three states that have publicly recognized potential election security breaches from the...

    As far I can tell the world is in a much worse place after eight years of President Obama. China, Russia, Iran and Cuba are stronger. The Middle East is in shambles. Terrorism deaths are higher and the world has a massive refuge crisis. I can think of nowhere that the U.S. is better off today after eight years of Obama, Hillary and Kerry. Isn't it time to give new ideas and a man accomplished throughout the world a chance? Not for the legacy media and its Democrat clients. I remember when George W. Bush was in office and the...
