    What happens if COVID death rates plummet to the point of no longer being a pandemic threat? The media will turn it on Trump.> Legacy media became predictably hysterical after President Donald Trump’s speech Friday defending American exceptionalism at one of the nation’s most iconic monuments, Mount Rushmore. “We will state the truth in full, without apology: We declare that the United States of America is the most just and exceptional nation ever to exist on Earth,” Trump proclaimed from the South Dakota Black Hills. “We are proud of the face that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and...
  • As local news crumbles, should the federal government intervene?

    Columbia Journalism Review ^ | July 8 2020 | Lauren Harris
    Journalism is just one of the industries hard-hit by the economic fallout from the pandemic. While we reimagine journalism’s structures and funding models, what role might the government play in intervening to support the role of a functioning press—not just someday, but now? In a new report published by the Hussman School of Journalism and Media at the University of North Carolina, Penny Abernathy—a collaborator on our Cutback Tracker project—underlines the stakes. Since 2005, more than a quarter of the country’s newspapers have disappeared. In the same fifteen-year span, the number of local journalists working in newsrooms has dropped by...

    Jewish World Review ^ | July 8, 2020 | Byron York
    That much news coverage is biased against President Trump goes without saying. But every now and then there comes an episode of bias so egregious that it deserves attention. The coverage of the president's July 3 speech at Mount Rushmore is one of those episodes. The Wall Street Journal editorial page called it "one of the best speeches" of Trump's time in office. Conservative intellectual Roger Kimball called it "perhaps his most forceful and eloquent to date." The message, Kimball said, was an "invitation to unity in the midst of conflict." Indeed, Trump's theme was a call for Americans to...
  • At Mount Rushmore, Trump digs deeper into nation’s divisions

    AP ^ | July 4, 2020 | Stephen Groves, and Darlen Superville
    At the foot of Mount Rushmore on the eve of Independence Day, President Donald Trump made a direct appeal to disaffected white voters four months before Election Day, accusing protesters who have pushed for racial justice of engaging in a “merciless campaign to wipe out our history.” The president dug further into American divisions Friday, offering a discordant tone to an electorate battered by a pandemic and wounded by racial injustice following the high-profile killings of Black people. He zeroed in on the desecration by some protesters of monuments and statues across the country that honor those who have benefited...

    Daily Wire ^ | July 3, 2020 | Hank Berrien
    In a report on Friday marking America’s Independence Day, CNN reporter Leyla Santiago, reporting from Mount Rushmore, where President Trump spoke, referred to Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson not as two of the greatest presidents in America’s history, but simply as “two slave owners.” Santiago stated, “Kicking off the Independence Day Weekend, President Trump will be at Mount Rushmore, where he’ll be standing in front of a monument of two slave owners and on land wrestled away from Native Americans told that uh, be focusing on the effort to ‘tear down our country’s history.’”

    American Thinker ^ | 7-2-2020 | Peter Barry Chowka
    Prominent Fox News channel daily anchor Ed Henry was summarily fired yesterday as the #MeToo movement has apparently claimed its latest mark. The announcement came in an internal email to Fox News staff early Wednesday morning, followed by an email to journalists including this author that featured a screen shot of the internal email announcing Henry's "termination." The cause for Henry's dismissal was alleged confirmation after a brief "independent investigation" of "a complaint about Ed Henry from a former employee's attorney involving willful sexual misconduct in the workplace years ago." No further details of Henry's alleged "sexual misconduct" have been...

    Tribune and McClatchy are both approaching critical deadlines that could lead to mergers, divisions — or even the first big nonprofit newspaper chain in the United States. ======================================================================= The next 48 hours may decide the fate of two of America’s largest newspaper chains that collectively serve almost a fifth of all American local newspaper readers. And what happens in those hours could prompt a wave of other moves across the rest of the industry. The dates June 30 and July 1 have called out from the calendar for a while now. On Tuesday, Tribune Publishing will reach the end of...

    Despite their roots in reality, there is no doubt that these crises -- and the White House and Senate's attempts to tackle them -- would be reported differently if Hillary Clinton were president. It took more than five years, but the corporate media finally have the tools and strategy to successfully defeat President Donald Trump.The corporate media have these, mind you, despite the Democratic Party, whose foibles, stumbles, and misfires over those same five years have only complicated efforts, kicking off with a disastrous 2016 defeat and eventually culminating in a near-invisible and increasingly senile presidential candidate stumbling through a...

    CNN ^ | 06/29/2020 | Carl Bernstein
    In hundreds of highly classified phone calls with foreign heads of state, President Donald Trump was so consistently unprepared for discussion of serious issues, so often outplayed in his conversations with powerful leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Erdogan, and so abusive to leaders of America's principal allies, that the calls helped convince some senior US officials -- including his former secretaries of state and defense, two national security advisers and his longest-serving chief of staff -- that the President himself posed a danger to the national security of the United States, according to White House...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 06.29.2020 | Mary Margaret Olohan
    The Chinese government is committing “demographic genocide” against Uighur Muslims through forced abortions, birth control, mass detentions, and imprisonment, an investigation by the Associated Press found. The AP investigation, based on interviews with 30 former detainees, family members, a former detention camp instructor, government statistics and state documents, found that the Chinese government seeks to dramatically lower the birthrates of Uighurs and other minorities while encouraging other populations to produce more children. Han Chinese are not usually subjected to the forced abortions, sterilizations, IUD insertions and detentions, the AP reported. The publication found that the Chinese government has created a...

    VIDEO Apparently the media didn't learn its lesson when they happily hyped the Trump-Russia collusion HOAX based on NO evidence. They are now doing a repeat performance by eagerly hyping a new Trump-Russia hoax, that he knew about the Russians supposedly paying the Taliban to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan. Of course, this latest conspiracy theory is also based on no evidence since the New York Times fable about this relied on "anonymous sources." This video shows how in both cases the media was all too eager to hype these FAKE NEWS stories. Perhaps the Times can come up...

    The Hill via MSN ^ | 6/28/20 | Justine Coleman
    The cable news networks are planning to work together to pool their coverage of the Democratic and Republican national conventions to reduce the number of employees present amid the coronavirus pandemic, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday. Leaders from CNN, MSNBC and Fox News are coordinating on regular calls to figure out "pool" coverage where networks use one video feed to limit the number of workers present, Rashida Jones, senior vice president of MSNBC and NBC News, told the newspaper. Pool coverage has traditionally been used during election coverage, but Jones said coordination between the networks has increased because of...

    VIDEO We have recently been hit with a flood of dire news reports about the rise in COVID-19 cases. Yet there is one very important statistic missing in almost all these reports: Daily deaths. Why would that be? Could it possibly be that contrary to the panicked tone of these reports, the daily deaths from the virus have been PLUNGING which gives important context to the media narrative? Oh, and in case you think I might have edited out any mention of the daily deaths in these news reports, then do your own research and you will see that...

    China, the same country that gave us the China coronavirus, costing over 100,000 American lives, is also behind much of the bad press related to President Trump and the USA. China’s CCP (Communist Party) created an entity labeled the “United Front” directed to ensure the media in the US is flattering towards China and policies beneficial to China. The United Front also supports Democrat policies that benefit China and pushes the promotion of these policies. We’ve reported numerous times how China’s economy is stalling, if not going backwards. There are numerous measurements that support this position, and yet you...

    VIDEO Um, isn't the purpose of a border wall to make it harder (or more inconvenient) to illegally cross the border? However, that seems to be the concern of this MSNBC reporter, Jacob Soboroff. He is also concerned about coronavirus crossing the border. NEWSFLASH!!! By making it harder for people to cross the border, the new border wall is also making it harder for coronavirus to cross the border.

    Can somebody point me to video compilations of the media breathlessly reporting across all networks, simultaneously, in sync, seemingly rehearsed of “bombshell” revelations; or “the walls are closing in”; or “this is the beginning of the end”, or “it’s a turning point”. Prefer one video showing all these. Thanks
