    Discredited former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson will host a weekly news show on Sunday mornings starting October 4 [2015] on Sinclair Broadcast Group stations, which include ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox affiliates.

    The media’s real business is ‘story laundering’. "The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns," Ben Rhodes gloated. "That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.” Rhodes, the White House’s “Obama whisperer”, was explaining how he had pulled the wool over the media’s eyes on the Iran Deal to a journalist. The media responded to the story by attacking the journalist who reported it, not Rhodes for viewing them as easily manipulated useful idiots. The media knew that it knew nothing. And it didn’t care. It just...
  • TV Networks Did A Really Crap Job Reporting On Climate Change Last Year

    The Huffington Post ^ | February 13, 2018 | By Nick Visser
    Many of America’s leading television networks did a poor job of covering climate change last year, even as the newly minted Trump administration worked to unravel regulations meant to tackle the phenomenon and the U.S. was pummeled by a series of record-breaking natural disasters, according to a new report. The group Media Matters for America analyzed climate change coverage on major broadcasters’ nightly news programs and Sunday morning political shows - including those on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News and PBS - over the course of 2017. While a total of 260 minutes were devoted to climate change during the...

    Scott Adams argues in Win Bigly that President Trump has "weapons grade" persuasion skills.

    The influence earned by the MRC is the model for a new liberal group which will monitor the so-called conservative media. A New York Times story on Monday by Jim Rutenberg, on how David Brock “will start a new Internet site this week that he says will monitor the conservative media and correct erroneous assertions in real time,” relayed how Brock hopes to emulate the MRC: “Mr. Brock said he hoped his new project could be as influential as the Media Research Center, a conservative media monitoring group run by L.

    A prominent donor to the Democratic Party says she is considering withdrawing support for senators who urged their colleague Al Franken to resign after he was accused of sexual misconduct. The donor, Susie Tompkins Buell, has been one of the Democratic Party’s most generous supporters for decades. In particular, she has been a champion of female politicians, including Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Maria Cantwell of Washington. Last month, those senators were among the dozens who called for Franken to resign from the Senate after at least six women accused him of sexual harassment...

    “THE PUBLIC HAS NEVER SEEN AN ORIGINAL DOCUMENT”For the second consecutive week, Obama birth certificate investigator Mike Zullo was Carl Gallups’s featured guest on the “Freedom Friday” show to discuss how a “computer-generated forgery” came to be posted on the White House website in 2011 allegedly representing Barack Hussein Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate. Gallups said that Media Matters may actually “have helped us,” considering the comments appearing below its article, which characterizes Zullo’s revelations as a “far-right conspiracy theory.” “It may be starting to backfire on them,” Zullo said of left-leaning media which has portrayed the investigational findings of his...

    "For those who don’t remember it, Journolist was just a listserv created by Ezra Klein. The list was invitation only and was mostly made up of progressive journalists. In theory, the list was a kind of digital water cooler where like-minded people could talk to others in the field. That may have been all it was much of the time, but when candidate Obama got in trouble in 2008, it also became a place for partisans to discuss a coordinated media strategy." When Kevin Drum (Mother Jones) argued that wasn’t the kind of campaign Obama wanted to run, Ackerman replied,...

    Daily Caller ^ | 10:43 PM 12/08/2017 | Robert Donachie
    David Brock’s Media Matters for America appears to be granting hundreds of thousands of dollars in charitable funds to political groups that are trying to impeach the president and unseat Republicans across the nation. Brock’s Media Matters for America is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has tax-exempt status. That tax-exempt status comes with an important caveat: the non-profit is barred from participating in political activity–funding or otherwise–that is in support or opposition to a candidate for office. Media Matters for America granted $200,000 in 2016 to a Brock organization, though it is unclear if it was American Bridge 21st...
  • One Day Later – Has Hannity Dodged the 'Kill Shot' Aimed at Him?

    American ^ | November 14, 2017 | Peter Barry Chowka
    An avalanche of mass defections of advertisers from Sean Hannity’s Fox News program appears to have been staunched – at least for the present. Over the weekend, initially five, and then more, major sponsors were about to bolt. On Monday, the CEO of the company in the forefront of the defections, Keurig, apologized for his company’s threat to quit running its commercials on Hannity’s show. With that move, the tide against Hannity appeared to be turning. At least that is how Hannity positioned the news. Monday was a day of fast-breaking developments, with Hannity’s fans, social media, and Hannity’s four...

    Media Matters for America (MMFA), the far-left group founded by David Brock to attack conservative media, is behind the boycott Hannity campaign. In fact, Keurig tweeted a thank you to MMFA’s president, Angelo Carusone, for calling Hannity’s coverage of the Moore case to the company’s attention: Angelo, thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention. We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show. On his Twitter account, Hannity has tweeted a link to a Web site – registered to the domain angelocarusone dot com...

    Even as Democrats publicly and loudly decry corporatist political “dark money,” billionaire Democrats and other donors funnel hundreds of millions to radical and violent causes.   Barely a week had passed after Donald Trump’s historic upset in the November 8 presidential election, but some of the world’s richest individuals were already launching a counteroffensive. George Soros and his fellow deep-pocket funders of the Democratic Party and left-wing causes gathered with a lineup of party activists and luminaries from Hollywood, K Street, and Wall Street for a three-day “investment conference” (November 15-17) at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C....

    This was not an anomaly. Drudge has for years used his site as a web traffic pipeline for Russian propaganda sites, directing his massive audience to nearly 400 stories from and fellow Russian-government-run English-language news sites and since the beginning of 2012, according to a Media Matters review. Those numbers spiked in 2016, when Drudge collectively linked to the three sites 122 times.

    A leaked memo appears to undermine significant details in a new book from a witness to the embassy attacks. But its alleged author tells The Daily Beast he didn't write it. The debate over the Obama administration’s actions before and after the attack on the U.S. mission was reignited following an Oct. 27 60 Minutes report featuring an interview with Morgan Jones Controversy over Jones’s interview and book reached a high pitch on Oct. 31 when The Washington Post published details of an incident report allegedly written by Jones that contradicts the account in his book and reveals his real...

    A plan titled “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action” found its way into the public domain some months ago, and is currently getting quite a bit of attention. It is a fundraising document created on behalf of four left-wing organizations: Media Matters, American Bridge, CREW and Shareblue. All four organizations were founded by David Brock, and it is likely that he wrote the “strategic plan.” The document appears to have been written around the time of President Trump’s inauguration, and may have been prepared for use at this Democratic donor conference. It sets out a plan to destroy the Trump...
