    WASHINGTON -- This week I am going to do something unusual. I am going to enter into a conversation with another columnist. Doing so was not so unusual a few decades back. Bill Buckley and James Jackson Kilpatrick did it when provoked, and it was always interesting. But today columnists are godlike figures. They communicate solely with Mount Olympus, and the result is often a bit tedious. I propose to address the New York Post's Michael Goodwin and congratulate him on noting that mainstream media, or MSM, have passed yet another milepost in their decline.

There was reporter Jeremy Peters, of the New York Times—appearing on MSNBC—piously condemning “Sean Hannity’s incredibly inappropriate role as an adviser to Donald Trump who is essentially giving him tens of millions of dollars of free advertising.” Just what does Peters think the MSM is: from his own New York Times to MSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, the Washington Post, etc., if not one huge monolith devoted to electing Hillary Clinton and other Dems while destroying Donald Trump? If Hannity is giving Trump “tens of millions” in free advertising, what is...

    AUSTIN, TX (KXAN) — Donald Trump’s campaign stop in Austin will come with a big price tag. Austin police officers along with Travis County Sheriff’s Deputies helped direct traffic and provided security. Travis County’s motorcycle unit escorted Trump from one location to the next. As far as how many APD officers were used, a spokesperson says that information can’t be released just yet, because of safety concerns given how long Trump was in town. Republican Texas Congressman Lamar Smith says security during these campaign stops is vital. “We want to protect them, we want to make sure their lives aren’t...

    Hackers thought to be working for Russian intelligence have carried out a series of cyber breaches targeting reporters at the New York Times and other US news organizations, according to US officials briefed on the matter. The intrusions, detected in recent months, are under investigation by the FBI and other US security agencies. Investigators so far believe that Russian intelligence is likely behind the attacks and that Russian hackers are targeting news organizations as part of a broader series of hacks that also have focused on Democratic Party organizations, the officials said.

    If the 2016 presidential race is tightening, how come the Main Stream Media is acting as though it’s widening? Indeed, why is the MSM indicating to us that Hillary Clinton is going to defeat Donald Trump in a landslide? Why are Republicans being told that they should abandon all hope of winning the White House? To answer those questions, we can cite the MSM Rule of Inverse Electoral Correlation: The closer the presidential race gets, the louder the MSM declares that it’s over. And all this comes even as Clinton has had a terrible week—arguably her worst week ever, as...

As Alpha News reported, Donald Trump never made a public appearance in Minneapolis but showed up to a quiet and private event at the Minneapolis Convention Center on Friday night. However, that did not stop protesters from showing up by the dozens to show their displeasure with the Republican-endorsed candidate. Trump supporters and donors were met with verbal and physical violence as they tried to enter and exit...

    U.S. television star Larry King received $225,000 from Ukraine’s disgraced former ruling Party of Regions, Ukrainian journalist and politician Serhiy Leshchenko has claimed. Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Leshchenko said that he had uncovered evidence which proved that the Party of Regions had paid King using shadow assets. The longtime CNN host received the money in return for a 2011 interview with former Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, said Sevgil Musaeva-Borovyk, the chief editor of the Ukrainskaya Pravda news website. Yanukovych fled to Russia in February 2014 following months of anti-government protests.

But something else happening before our eyes is almost as important: the complete collapse of American journalism as we know it. The frenzy to bury Trump is not limited to the Clinton campaign and the Obama White House. They are working hand-in-hand with what was considered the cream of the nation’s news organizations.

Just because the media is predictably beginning to sell poll stats beneficial to Donald Trump doesn’t mean they are any less manipulated. On June 15th aggregate media polling had Hillary Clinton leading by 15 points.  On July 15th the same media polling had Trump +17.  On August 8th the pendulum swing was back to Hillary +15,…. and now today the media signals of a tied race begin. It’s all nonsense.  All of it.  Polls don’t swing 20 to 30 +/- points every few weeks. The media outlets conducting these polls have...

    Donald Trump’s naked body was on full display around the country yesterday, in tall, proud, statue form. A group calling itself INDECLINE planted statue representations of the presidential candidate in busy parts of New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Cleveland. The statues featured Trump’s signature coif and grimace, along with the sculptor’s imagining of a sagging derriere, and a sprawling gut overhanging some miniscule genitalia. The figure was also, shall we say, sans testicles. The “artists” behind the project titled their oeuvre “The Emperor Has No Balls.” As if the statue had not sufficiently nauseated the general population...

The Ploughshares Fund, a liberal organization cited by top White House officials as a chief architect of the Obama administration’s campaign to push the Iran deal, requested the cash from Soros’s Open Society Foundations so that it could pay off “experts and validators” of the administration’s diplomacy with Iran, according to a funding...

While the article frames itself as an "invitation to share ideas", it is clearly one-sided and only quotes anti-Trump "educators". The question posed by the article is not "should we be biased against Trump?" It is "how should we be biased against Trump?" The article claims that "Donald J.

    Donald Trump complains relentlessly that the media doesn't treat him fairly. Reporters, he says, are "the most dishonest people." That's a compelling argument, especially for his supporters. Fox News media critic Howard Kurtz, in a column last week about news coverage of Trump, insisted that for the mainstream press to line up "against one candidate in a presidential election can't be justified." Ordinarily, that's a no-brainer statement for any self-respecting journalist. These are not ordinary times. Kurtz, who plied his trade for the Washington Post and CNN before moving over to Rupert Murdoch's conservative news channel, pointed out that journalists'...

    Unfortunately when the wider U.S. electorate voted the Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers to be the president of the United States they were, perhaps unwittingly, ushering in a new era of fundamental change, governmental weaponization. Events and outcomes ceased to be determined by laws, and the politics of any given event became the overriding filter through which all action, or lack thereof, would be determined. The last seven years have provided numerous examples for points of reference. The IRS investigation of conservative groups was driven by politics, not legality.

Mark Kelly, who, together with wife Gabby Gifford, founded Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS), whom Blitzer described as a “gun violence prevention group” (the label gun-control groups prefer of late). Check Kelly’s credentials: ARS’ website supports so-called “universal” background checks, closing non-existent “loopholes” for online sales and “unlicensed dealers,” and funding of Centers for Disease Control anti-gun research into gun violence as a “public health issue.” His statements support Massachusetts AG Maura Healey, who just imposed a unilateral ban on the sale...

Trump excelled in another category as well. He spent far less than any of his major opponents. It should be noted that not every dollar of spending is for advertising, but it is a significant part of total spending for most candidates. Numerous articles were written on Jeb Bush's scorched earth TV campaign that spent tens of millions and yielded so little in terms of results. During that...

    Two media companies have asked a judge to make public Donald Trump’s 1990 divorce records, contending they're "directly relevant" to the presidential campaign, USA Today reports. After 14 years of marriage, Ivana Trump cited "cruel and inhuman treatment" when filing for divorce. Though Donald Trump's lawyer at the time told the New York Times the cruelty stemmed from his public appearances with Marla Maples, news of a divorce deposition in which Ivana alleged she had been sexually assaulted by her husband surfaced a few years later and again bubbled up during the campaign. The New York Times Co. and Gannett...

    Compare that little vignette with this week, when Donald Trump repeatedly said that President Obama and Hillary Clinton were founders/co-founders/MVPs of ISIS. Even though the media had more than shot their outrage wad for the week, the media doubled, tripled, even quadrupled down on their outrage for the Wednesday night-Thursday news cycle. Here are six problems with the media’s complete meltdown over the remarks. 1) Why Did This Become an Issue Now and Not 7 Months Ago? Republicans who oppose Trump claim the media encouraged Trump when he was setting fire to Republican opponents but have fought him tooth and...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The latest Trump controversy. (laughing) They're saying Obama founded ISIS, and people have had Trump on, they've talked to Trump. (paraphrased) "You want to walk that back? Don't you really mean to say that it was Obama's negligence in getting out of Iraq that established the circumstances for ISIS to begin and flourish?" "No! He founded ISIS. He and Hillary founded it." "Mr. Trump, don't you really kind of want to walk that back and rephrase it?" "No! They -- he -- founded ISIS." He's not walking it back. He's saying, "I'm telling the truth! "This is...

    FOX News - the Five - consensus echoes what was being said by others on the Network yesterday. There's nothing really wrong with what Candy Crowley did during the debate - and it didn't really affect anything. Dana Perino said she's known Candy Crowley for years - and Perino attests that it wasn't intentional. Gutfeld added that he thought it wasn't a real or sincere issue for Trump to have concerns about the Fairness of Debate Moderators. Seems FOX is focused on defeating points of the right. Numerous panel members dismissed Candy Crowley's actions as much ado about nothing.

    Because everyone knows that Trump’s followers are barely civilized, some of them in more distant regions man-ape hybrids. And everyone knows that “Second Amendment people” are not united behind part of the Bill of Rights; they are using that as disguise of their true nature as bloodthirsty assassins. The media are once again making themselves appear ridiculous, twisting Trump’s words and exposing their own disdain for Trump’s followers. They are following a general script. Samantha Strayer of The Federalist identifies the pattern: The media frenzy surrounding this election, the 24/7 news-cycle, and Trump’s gumption ensure we’re constantly talking about him,...

    Americans viewing the recent failed coup attempt in Turkey as some exotic foreign news story [] should pause to consider that the prospect of similar instability would not be unfathomable in this country if Donald Trump were to win the presidency. Trump is not only patently unfit to be president, but a danger to America and the world. Voters must stop him before the military has to.
