    Wednesday night, CNN’s Jake Tapper highlighted some left-wing violence which hasn’t gotten much media attention. At least two journalists in Charlottesville were assaulted by people protesting the Klan/Nazi/alt-right rally. Taylor is one: https://t.co/haVOw89uTN — Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) August 17, 2017

    ....As journalists, we’re supposed to sort through press releases, talking points and propaganda, using them only to the extent they enlighten us as to what special interests want to believe: Is it true? Is it the whole story? Who wants you to think it and why? Are they trying to deflect attention from other facts or a more important story? Finding these answers is a basic part of our job. Instead, we’re willing repositories for all kinds of narratives. We report — as if news — press releases from the government, corporations, special interests or nonprofits (that are often undisclosed...

    CNN posted a map on August 17 showing the location of approximately 1,500 Confederate monuments and/or official symbols in the U.S. The map will, no-doubt, serve as a hit-list for the frenzied Workers World Party members and others seeking the removal and destruction of Confederate statues in city after city across America. CNN reports, “Roughly 1,500 Confederate symbols still exist on public land more than 150 years after the conclusion of the Civil War.” It explains that 718 of the Confederate symbols are “monuments and statutes.”

    RUSH: You know, yesterday on this program we made mention of the fact that on the CBS Evening News on Tuesday, the entire broadcast was devoted to Trump and Charlottesville and the whole newscast. There was not one other story. So last night — I don’t know if the suits at CBS heard us talking about that or not, but they decided to go out and try to find some Trump supporters, gave them some time maybe to balance what they had done the previous night. They found two black and one white Trump supporter, three people, and I want...
  • Media quick to disassociate Sanders from his supporter who attempted to assassinate Republicans

    When a Bernie Sanders supporter attempted to assassinate Republicans, the media were quick to disassociate a politician from his radical supporters President Trump is being roundly criticized by the media for failing to criticize one side over the other in the Charlottesville riots, even before the exact sequence of events is understood, such as who initiated the violence. The verdict in this case must precede the evidence. Let’s take a short trip down memory lane and recall how the media treated the attempted assassination of House Republicans by a Bernie Sanders supporter. James Hidgkinson, who had a prolific history of...

    That the Trump presidency is bedeviled is undeniable. As President Donald Trump flew off for August at his Jersey club, there came word that Special Counsel Robert Mueller III had impaneled a grand jury and subpoenas were going out to Trump family and campaign associates. The jurors will be drawn from a pool of citizens in a city Hillary Clinton swept with 91 percent of the vote. Trump got 4 percent. Whatever indictments Mueller wants, Mueller gets. Thanks to a media that savages him ceaselessly, Trump is down to 33 percent approval in a Quinnipiac University poll and below 40...

    The tragedy in Charlottesville, Virginia, could have been an occasion to stop and consider how the tolerance for politically correct violence and politically correct hatred is leading the nation toward civil war. Instead, the media and the political left have turned this incident into the biggest fake news story of the summer, transforming its real lessons into a morality play that justifies war against the political right, and against white people generally. The organizers of the "Unite the Right" demonstration in Charlottesville were repellent racists. But they came to defend a historic monument honoring a complex man and cause, and...

    CNN delighted in reporting the results of a recent poll question that asked: "How much do you trust the things you hear in official communications from the White House? Do you trust almost all, most of it, just some of it, or nothing at all?" If a regular viewer of CNN were to choose anything higher than zero, you'd assume he was a victim of the opioid epidemic. Given the size of CNN's audience as a percentage of the national population, this was an issue. Forty-three percent picked "some of it," as people tend to do in a poll. Twenty-four...

    Independent Journal Review (IJR) collected a few unintentionally hilarious Twitter responses from journalists who reported being shaken by President Donald Trump’s aggressiveness in an extraordinary press conference Tuesday that was centered on questions about the weekend’s violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.Vanity Fair reporter Gabriel Sherman was actually physically ill: “I am totally rattled by that presser. Chest tight, stomach queasy. Feel sick”: Perhaps he should have his testosterone checked. It seems seriously depleted. But then, he does write for Vanity Fair. Magazine editor David Lytle tweeted his empathy for Sherman: “I vomited on election night. Today, I bawled for 20 minutes....

CBS broke into local programming (Judge Judy in New York City WCBS 2) with a nervous making BREAKING NEWS slide and then an even more ominous 3-2-1 countdown - after which A nervous sounding Anthony Mason appeared to announce that just moments ago, an enraged Donald Trump had unleashed a torrent of rath at the press beginning with an angry outburst at John McCain. Mason appeared to get flustered when he began his exposition with "This debate with the press...umh..." and corrected to "...this defense of his position taken 2 nights ago..."...

    RUSH: Yesterday on the program I happened to mention that a New York Times writer, Sheryl Gay Stolberg must not have gotten the memo because she sent out a couple of tweets acknowledging that the hate in Charlottesville was equally distributed. That there was as much hate on the left and violence on the left as there was on the so-called right here. She admitted that the Antifa — by the way, who is this Antifa? They keep naming this. All this is Occupy Wall Street. All this is is Black Lives Matter. There’s nothing new here. It’s not a...

    Recently, ABC’s 'The View' had a discussion on the Texas law that allows students who are licensed to carry firearms who do so on public college campuses and universities. The law went into effect last year, but community colleges were given an extra year to comply. The segment opens with Whoopi Goldberg asking the question, "Should people be worried about this?" "Duh," said comedian Joy Behar as co-host Sunny Hostin rolled her eyes. Then Jedediah Bila, the show’s "conservative" voice, stepped up to defend the law. She pointed out that the Aurora, Colo. movie theater shooter targeted the theater because...

    Appearing as a guest on Monday's New Day, liberal CNN political commentator Symone Sanders not only repeatedly smeared White House advisors Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka as "white supremacist sympathizers," but she even deceptively claimed that Gorka had characterized "brown people" as a problem. At 7:53 a.m. ET, as she debated former Virginia Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli over the issue of why President Donald Trump had not more explicitly condemned white supremacy ideology, Sanders took aim at Bannon for associating himself and Breitbart News in the past with the "Alt-right" movement: CNN's Sanders Falsely Claims Gorka Called 'Brown People'...

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    Regardless of your opinions on how effective or timely President Trump’s response to the shocking events in Charlottesville, VA, it can’t have escaped your attention that the MSM is now firmly targeted as one in kicking down Trump on his responses. It seems he can’t catch a break on this, and that is likely the point of the concerted operation taking place. Firstly he was criticized for not getting a statement out fast enough to condemn the (we assume) murder of a young woman and the violence surrounding it. Many were quick to jump in and make their statement (and...

    On Saturday afternoon, shortly before her camera captured a car plowing through left-wing activists in Charlottesville, killing one and injuring more than a dozen others, Faith Goldy warned that the left was spinning out of control. “Hundreds and hundreds of antifa, weird BLM, idiots dressed like clowns,” said Goldy, a reporter for the Canadian alt-right news site The Rebel. “This is okay, as long as you’re not the alt-right. The alt-right wasn’t allowed to demonstrate any show of force.” As if on cue, activists began chanting “black lives matter” in the background of Goldy’s shot. “Chant BLM, and all of...

    I wish I could say that itÂ’s a shock that someone died in Charlottesville, but IÂ’ve been predicting just this sort of thing in radio appearances for months. The liberal media is dying to blame it all on Donald Trump, but it should look in the mirror. To begin with, the liberal media is almost entirely responsible for growing the Alt-Right merger of hate groups and internet trolls. Most people are well aware of the stifling political correctness that reached an apex under Barack Obama. People are sick and tired of being attacked and scolded by the humorless left-wing thought...

    Being a Jewish fella, I don't hold much brief for white supremacists and neo-Nazis. But until this Saturday, I hadn't seen a lot of them around lately. And I've been going about the country quite a bit for the last couple of years, hitting roughly half the states, including some like Mississippi where the Klan was once riding high. I'm happy to report that on my visit to the black-owned Two Sister's Kitchen in the capital of that state, Jackson, blacks and whites were both equally, and contentedly in my eyes, braving the criticism of their cardiologists for what is...

    A columnist for The New York Times has called upon Google CEO Sundar Pichai to resign following the controversial dismissal of former employee James Damore. Damore was fired from his position at Google this week after publishing a viewpoint diversity manifesto, which examined reasons why there are fewer women in tech jobs and called for more ideological diversity in Google’s workplace. In a memo, Google CEO Sundar Pichai claimed Damore had advanced “harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace,” despite the fact that numerous psychologists, male and female, deemed the manifesto to be scientifically accurate. “There are many actors in the...
