  • Bizarroland: David Frum Says "Mistakes...Are Why People Should Trust Media"

    12/10/2017 3:55:36 PM PST · by Kaslin · 45 replies ^ | December 10, 2017 | Timothy Meads
    David Frum, former President George W. Bush speechwriter, appeared on CNN's Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter today to discuss media in the age of Trump.The current Atlantic senior editor started off his monologue by making the following claim.  “The mistakes are precisely the reason people should trust the media. Astronomers make mistakes all the time because science is a process of discovery of truth. Astrologers never make mistakes or at least they never own up to them because what they are offering is a closed system of ideology and propaganda," Frum told Stelter.  On the surface, this sounds accurate. Astronomers...
  • Here Are The Three Trump-Russia Stories The Media Totally Botched In The Last Week

    12/10/2017 3:38:34 PM PST · by Kaslin · 4 replies ^ | December 10, 2017 | Matt Vespa
    On Friday, CNN peddled an incorrect report about Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Wikileaks. They allege that the then-presidential candidate, his son, and other folks within their inner circle received an email that contained a decryption key to a trove of documents from Wikileaks. The problem was this email was already made public—and the date was wrong. Here’s the correction: Correction: This story has been corrected to say the date of the email was September 14, 2016, not September 4, 2016. The story also changed the headline and removed a tweet from Donald Trump Jr., who posted a...
  • Lefty Greenwald Rips CNN for Lack of Transparency with Fake News Story

    In an extensive piece published by The Intercept on Saturday, co-founder of the news site Glenn Greenwald excoriated CNN (as well as a host of other news outlets) for recklessly advancing agenda driven stories involving the Russia investigation, with no transparency when the stories blow up in their face and go viral with fake news. Greenwald began by noting how “Friday was one of the most embarrassing days for the U.S. media in quite a long time.”“The humiliation orgy was kicked off by CNN, with MSNBC and CBS close behind, with countless pundits, commentators and operatives joining the party throughout...

    Once again, you called it right, President Trump! The truth FINALLY got its pants back on Friday while mainstream media liars were caught flashing their dirty undies at the masses, their lies having already traveled halfway around the world. This time, the odious stench of burning coming from CNN, CBS, MSNBC and the far more cunning Washington Post, all of whose pants were on fire, went viral. With most attention riveted on Liar King CNN, CBS and MSNBC came jumping, flames and all, into the lie pitallowing the WaPos David Weigel to almost wiggle out of his lies.

    A conservative writer for the Washington Post asked this week what many in our movement nationally have been pondering while watching Alabama creep ever closer to sending Roy Moore to the U.S. Senate: Whats the matter with Alabama? Examining a recent poll, columnist Jennifer Rubin bemoaned that Moore received nearly 60-percent of the female vote, asking did these women consider that if Moore gets away with his alleged crimes and gets to the Senate, a horrific message will be sent to men who prey on young women? Seeing how were probably going to send someone to the U.S. Senate whose...

    Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton's alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? Brain damage from inhaling too much hairspray? A brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can't keep up? Maybe it's a pesky case of dysphasia, the condition Trump's used-to-be-spokesperson Katrina...

    Bombshell! Wikileaks, which liberals describe as an agent of the Russians, gave Donald Trump Jr. foreknowledge of the thousands of emails from the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 election—and had given him the decryption key for the documents. CNN dropped this report earlier today [emhasis mine]: Candidate Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr. and others in the Trump Organization received an email in September 2016 offering a decryption key and website address for hacked WikiLeaks documents, according to an email provided to congressional investigators.The September 4 email was sent during the final stretch of the 2016 presidential race...

    On Fridays Morning Joe, the MSNBC shows hosts and guests spent most of their broadcast mourning the announced resignation of Minnesota Senator Al Franken from Congress in the wake of over half a dozen allegations of sexual assault against him. In a stunning display of hypocrisy, MSNBCs liberal morning pundits went to extraordinary lengths to cast doubt on the women who have accused Franken of sexual misconduct, violating the networks own oft-repeated standards for Republican and conservative politicians.New York Times writer Bari Weiss was even brought on to complain about how some innocent people are going to go down as...

    On Friday's Velshi and Ruhle show, MSNBC co-hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle gave a forum to frequent MSNBC guest Kurt Bardella -- known for being a Republican who trashes his right-leaning former client Breitbart News -- so that he could discuss his decision to finally officially switch to the Democratic party. The move will be no shock to those who have observed his appearances on MSNBC in which he has hyperbolcally claimed that the white racist rally in Charlottesville "is the Republican Party," and has even taken liberal policy positions on issues like gun control.MSNBC Hosts Frequent GOP Guest...

    Donald Trump won the presidential race in 2016 by running against the media. Im not telling you anything you dont know. But what has the Big Media apoplectic is that he has continued his war with them through the first year of his presidency. And well he should. The Big Media have never seen anything like this before and, believe me, its got them worried. For instance, take what Dan Rather said recently: This is not normal, he said when asked about his view of the White House. Theres never been anything like this before. Weve certainly had presidents,...

A Morgan Stanley spokesperson told the Huffington Post in an email: He has been terminated for conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies. According to the Huffington Post: At least one woman, who is not a Morgan Stanley employee but interacted with Ford in a professional capacity, was interviewed by Morgan Stanley's HR department as part of the investigation. In two interviews with HuffPost, the woman alleged that Ford engaged in harassment, intimidation, and forcibly grabbed her one evening...
  • Obama Warns Trump Will Lead America to Genocide Like Hitler, Media Yawn

    In a friendly interview with CBS News financial analyst Mellody Hobson, President Obama suggested we could have an American genocide akin to what happened in Nazi Germany with Donald Trump as President. The former president was speaking to the Economic Club of Chicago when he made the caustic remark, in comments captured by Crain’s Chicago Business political columnist Greg Hinz. According to Hinz, Obama warned Trump’s “nativism” and distrust of the press would cause our “democracy to fall apart quickly.” Obama then made the connection between Trump and Hitler, warning “60 million people died,” when the world got “complacent.” Take that,...
