    An Irish newspaper was forced to retract an article after it admitted that it had published a fake poll about abortion, misleading its readers into believing a majority of Irish doctors support the abortion of pre-born babies in the first trimester. The Irish Examiner splashed the headline "75% of doctors support 12-week access to abortion" over its front page on February 8. The sub-heading read: "Poll of 400 medics shows support for liberalising abortion regime", and claimed that "three out of every four GPs and hospital consultants are in favour of allowing unrestricted access to abortion up to 12 weeks...

    “Facebook vice president of advertising Rob Goldman slammed the media for what he said was misleading coverage of Russia’s meddling in American politics. “ “Most of the coverage of Russian meddling involves their attempt to effect the outcome of the 2016 US election. I have seen all of the Russian ads and I can say very definitively that swaying the election was *NOT* the main goal,” Goldman said.
  • Did Media Slobbering Over Communist Dictatorships Begin Last Week at the Korean Olympics?

    Regarding the Mainstream Media’s gushing over Communist dictator Kim Jong Un’s sister at the Olympics last week please excuse Cuba-watchers while we roll our eyes completely into their sockets and chant The Talking Heads’ famous line: “Same as it Ever Was!” Actually, the term “same” doesn’t quite fit. Because if you actually read the New York Times, WaPo, CNN, etc. accounts of the Stalinist Kim Yo-jong at the Seoul Olympics they’re pretty tame–nothing remotely comparable to the decades-long outpouring of love-notes by the U.S. media to the Stalinist, mass-murdering, dictator 90 miles off our shores whose lifelong craving was to incinerate...

    "The Associated Press is admitting that they were lied to by a white nationalist who claimed his group was connected to the school shooter in Parkland, Florida." "Jordan Jereb, a member of white nationalist group “Republic of Florida,” claimed on Wednesday that Nikolas Cruz, the shooter that killed 17 people at a Parkland high school, was a member of his group and participated in paramilitary drills with them. The Associated Press ran with Jereb’s claims, leading a number of outlets to publish blurbs of their report." "However, Jereb later backtracked on his claims and said he was “confused” because there...

    RUSH: I had this yesterday and it got aced out by other things. But there was a popular news item yesterday that this was like the 18th school shooting in whatever period of time. And it was totally bogus. It was entirely bogus! It was entirely untrue. This year alone! It was 18 school shootings in this year alone. Of all places, The Washington Post came along and debunked it. But it doesn’t matter. The Drive-Bys will not abandon this. Any gun statistic that they think advances their radical cause, they will use, stick with it, lie about it. They...
  • CIA Argues The Public Can’t See Classified Information It Has Already Given To Favored Reporters

    Intelligence officials can selectively release classified information to trusted journalists while withholding the same information from other citizens who request it through open records laws, CIA lawyers argued Wednesday. ....The judge in the case appeared to find Johnson’ argument compelling. In a court order last month, Chief Judge Colleen McMahon of the Southern District of New York said FOIA laws do not authorize limited disclosure, to favored journalists or otherwise. “In this case, CIA voluntarily disclosed to outsiders information that it had a perfect right to keep private,” she wrote. “There is absolutely no statutory provision that authorizes limited disclosure...

    The latest mass shooting, which claimed 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, was a horrible tragedy. But that's no excuse for the flurry of stories parroting a gun control advocacy group's false claims about school shootings. In the immediate wake of the shooting, headlines starting appearing at major news sites: "There have already been 18 school shootings in the US this year" — ABC News "18 school shootings in 45 days — Florida massacre is one of many tragedies in 2018"—CNBC "18 school shootings in US in 2018"— AFP "U.S. averages a school shooting every 2.5...

    RUSH: Now, there are other interesting aspects to this. Would you believe me if I were to tell you that the news media — the Drive-Bys — are frustrated today over this shooting? Oh, they are, folks. They are frustrated as they can be. And you know why? They are frustrated because this shooting has knocked the Rob Porter scandal from the headlines. In fact, if you think that I’m exaggerating this, I have here a story in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers. It’s from TheHill.com: “ — The White House’s public schedule of events for Thursday does not include a...

    The raw emotions generated by immigration policy—provoked by heartrending stories of families torn apart by deportation, or citizens murdered by illegal immigrants—have scrambled political allegiances and confused public debate. Republicans, usually the champions of family values and small government, now want to restrict family reunification and give bureaucrats the power to screen people who want to enter the country. Democrats, traditionally the allies of the working class, want big business to select immigrants and have given scant attention to the legitimate interests of working-class natives. The only way to end this politically charged debate is to think carefully about benefits...

    NBC's Katie Couric was slammed across social media for saying Dutch successes in Olympic speed skating were because skating is an “important mode of transport” in their country. “It’s probably not a news flash to tell you the Dutch are really, really good at speed skating… ‘Why are they so good?’ you may be asking yourself,” Couric mused during Friday’s opening ceremony. “Because skating is an important mode of transportation in a city like Amsterdam.” She said Amsterdam “has lots of canals that can freeze in winter. So, for as long as the canals have existed, the Dutch have skated...

    It’d be nice to say that American media doesn’t hate this country. It’d be nice to claim that the American press, while maintaining objectivity and balancing against bias, is still inherently American – that they are patriots who love this country even as they report on its defects. Recall the quote from Daniel Patrick Moynihan while Ambassador to the United Nations: “Am I embarrassed to speak for a less than perfect democracy? Not one bit. Find me a better one. Do I suppose there are societies which are free of sin? No, I don’t. Do I think ours is, on...

    It’s been said that the best job in politics is to be a press secretary for a liberal Democrat. Because the compliant press will write whatever you give them and they will never ask a follow-up question. Having spent most of my adult life around the political world, I can attest that there is a good deal of truth to that statement. We are all products of our environment and are influenced by people around us, especially people we respect. If a person attends a liberal university and majors in journalism, it shouldn’t surprise us that they graduate and enter...

    The most heinous reality that the straight-shooting 45th POTUS has uncovered is this: a good portion of the leftist media see most blacks and other dark-skinned minorities as sub-humans; and whether he knows it or not, Donald Trump is coming very close to removing, once and for all, the carefully and artfully applied paint from the face of a Beast that has been masquerading as Truth and Justice for far too long. By goading the leftist media into talking about cultural issues that they really don't understand, the president has laid a trap and is exposing what has been obvious...

    The mainstream media’s glorification of totalitarian hellholes won’t strike anyone familiar with 20th century history as new, but this weekend’s coverage of North Korea’s regime at the Olympics would make even former New York Times journalist Walter Duranty blush. As the 2018 Olympics Winter Games began in South Korea, reporters from various networks clapped like seals at North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un’s pathetic attempt at charming journalists into accepting his regime as legitimate, choosing to woo them over with synchronized cheer squads and having his sister Kim Yo Jong leer at Vice President Mike Pence.

    Trump supporters share more fake news on social media than any other political group, according to a new study from Oxford University. Researchers studied more than 13,000 Twitter users and 47,000 Facebook pages in the days leading up to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address to determine which social media users spread the most “junk” news. They discovered that Trump supporters on Twitter shared more unreliable news than all other groups combined. On Facebook, extreme conservatives share more junk news than all other audiences put together. The researchers defined “junk news” as “misleading, deceptive or incorrect information purporting...

    Journalists pushed back against President Trump's tweet Saturday saying people's lives are being destroyed by "a mere allegation," a comment that sparked backlash on social media. Trump decried how people's "lives are being shattered and destroyed be a mere allegation" after two White House aides abruptly resigned this week following claims of past domestic abuse. While Trump did not mention any specific allegations, he wrote: "Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused - life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer...

Author Frank Schaeffer said, “White evangelical America, make no mistake now, as the solid bedrock supporters of molesters, of pedophiles, of these sorts of folks, have switched sides and they are no longer representing anything that is–could be called moral by the traditions of any religion.” “And in terms of a Bible prophecy-type story, these folks are now on the side of everyone that ever stood against justice and for evil.

    Most associate the term "radicalized" with ISIS.  But radical movements aren't limited to a religion.  A jihad is a crusade for a principle or belief involving struggle" and "resistance."  The Washington establishment, the Deep State, and special interests have launched their own jihad, built on a battle cry to "resist."   Today, calls to "resist!" echo through Congress as half of the House and Senate stage a mutiny against a duly elected president. "Resist!" is the call to arms from Democrat leaders (Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama) and radical activist groups (Black Lives Matter, Antifa).   More than 50 organizations have formed to "resist!"...

    If you thought this was all a conspiracy theory, the CIA has openly admitted to attempting to manipulate the media for decades. It’s been known for some time that the Central Intelligence Agency controls much of the media that people in the united States and abroad get their information from. Now, it seems all too real as former Obama CIA Director John Brennan has been hired by NBC.
