  • The Collapse Of 'Real' Media Credibility (In 3 Simple Images)

    Two words - "nailed it" What a difference 4 months makes ... From Meltdown to Total Meltdown to Man Of The Year ... As FoxNews notes however, while President-elect Donald Trump was named Time magazine's Person of the Year on Wednesday, the honor basically ended there. While describing Trump as the real change-maker of 2016, the magazine also ragged on the Republican president-elect as a "huckster" and "demagogue" while reserving its most glowing praise for runner-up Hillary Clinton -- whom the edition breathlessly described as "an American Moses." In describing Trump, Time's article almost exclusively used backhanded compliments. For instance,...
  • Why Donald Trumpís Constant Twitter Battle With The Media Is A Brilliant Strategy

    The Federalist ^ | 12/7/16 | David Danford
    One might understand this best in terms of John Boydís famous OODA Loop. Used by military tacticians, the Observe, Orient, Decide, and Act loop describes the cycle in which opponents operate during a fight. Whoever can cycle more quickly gains the initiative and controls the fight. Whoever cycles more slowly remains off-balance, constantly having to re-observe and re-orient to circumstances dictated by the enemy. The media cycles more slowly. Trump retains initiative by constantly feeding their hysteria and confusion with a steady diet of controversial tweets. Each new tweet grabs their attention and they restart the process. Like clockwork, every...

    NBC News paid for a hotel room for the man who ran the Ghost Ship, the Oakland warehouse-turned-artists-collective that burned down Friday night, killing 36 people at an underground electronic music show. Mainstream media outlets frown on paying money to sources. A network spokesman said NBC ďabsolutelyĒ did not give money to Derick Almena in exchange for a series of exclusive interviews, but bought him a hotel room at the Oakland Marriott City Center for ďa couple of nights.Ē The spokesman described that as ďstandard TV booking procedure.Ē Almena, 46, stayed at the hotel with his wife, Micah Allison, and...

If you do read it, you're misinformed," Washington, the star and director behind the new film "Fences," told ITK at the Wednesday premiere inside the National Museum of African American History and Culture. "Fences," based on an award-winning play of the same name, also features Viola Davis and centers on the life of a black family in 1950s Pittsburgh. It is set to be released on Christmas.

    Thanks, Obama! Donald Trump had a rocky campaign. And the transition has been bumpy as well. But he looks to be rolling onto the presidency on the smoothest economic path of any president in a long time. Data ranging from wage and job growth to manufacturing-sector indicators show that Donald Trump is getting an economy in better shape than any new president in a generation. Take a look at the following four indicators to see just how fortunate the President-elect is: GDP Growth The only indicator that shows Trump inheriting a generally weaker economy than is typical is GDP growth....

    When the modern Tea Party movement coalesced in the early days of the Obama presidency, its allusion to the political grievances of the protesters in Boston Harbor a couple of hundred years earlier seemed plausible enough: Its members felt that their taxes were too high and their interests not adequately represented by the remote authorities in Washington. But the election of 2016 presents a challenge to that historical lineage. The home states to the Tea Party are actually doing great on the taxation and representation front. Itís the progressive blue states that should be protesting. Start with the Electoral College....

Ninety per cent of conventional press was hostile to Donald Trump, and 90 per cent of polling organizations predicted a comfortable Clinton victory. As there was no substantive argument for the re-election of the Democrats, their entire campaign was to slag off Trump. The servile press deluged Trumpís followers with disparagements, and generally signed on to Hillary Clintonís dismissal of 30 million Trump supporters as a...

    This is Breitbart's gift to us to help add to our sheer enjoyment today as we give thanks that all of these phony know-it-alls were so very wrong; and prove that in the end they knew nothing. From the time Donald Trump announced his White House bid, there has been no shortage of establishment media outlets predicting his defeat. Indeed, as the weeks and months marked Trumpís ever-apparent political preeminence, the pundits, pollsters, and prognosticators doubted and declared his collapse inevitable. Even as Trump, a real estate mogul-turned-reality TV star, clinched the Republican presidential nomination, the affirmations of his failure...

    Fox News commentator Sean Hannity said that until journalists admit to colluding with Hillary Clintonís campaign, President-elect Donald Trump should reconsider granting traditional access to reporters. ďTrump can do this and speak directly to you, the America people, without having his words twisted and taken out of context,Ē Hannity said on his Fox show Tuesday night, noting that the president-elect had put out a video announcing a plan for executive actions in his first 100 days in office. "Why not do that?Ē Pointing to stolen emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, Hannity said those assigned to cover the former...

    Reddit users have begun a campaign titled #SendEmSalt where they send The New York Times offices large bags of salt, ridiculing the publication for their angry (or ďsaltyĒ) reaction to the election of Donald Trump.

Within the thread, user /u/njmksr writes, ďWhile I was viewing the frontpage today, I was inspired by one ĎPedeís [a term short for centipede that refers to Trump supporters] act of sending the NYT 25...

    MSNBC‚Äôs resident Hillary Clinton super-fan, Andrea Mitchell, came across as particularly desperate Wednesday as she dedicated a segment of Andrea Mitchell Reports to dreaming of a possible recount in three key swing states. ‚ÄúSome Clinton supporters are trying to mount a campaign to ask for an audit in key states to see if a recount should be ordered,‚ÄĚ she reported, ‚ÄúAccording to a group of election lawyers and computer scientists‚Ķ there is quote, ‚ÄėPersuasive evidence that election results in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan may have been manipulated or hacked.‚Äô‚ÄĚ The report Mitchell was staking her hopes and dreams on was...

    Yes, itís absolutely awful that about 200 white nationalist guys Ė or maybe 199 guys and former reality television star Tila Tequila Ė got together at a Washington D.C. convention center, give Nazi salutes, yelled ďHail Trump!Ē and generally made asses of themselves. Then again, itís about 200 attendees, according to USA Today. The Washington, D.C. metro area has about 6 million people. It is not that hard to gather a couple dozen or couple hundred people together for just about any idea or concept, no matter how obscure or outlandish. About 80 Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln presenters Ė...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Now, Reuters: "Conservatives bristle as Trump backs off Clinton prosecution." There's another one. "Trump walks back." "Trump backs off." "Trump changing mind." "Trump relaxing." Don't believe it! He hasn't done anything yet. He's just talking to a bunch of people at the media that he knows don't tell the truth about him. But in this story, there's something of particular interest to me. "Conservatives who have reveled in the possibility of a Clinton prosecution were not pleased. Breitbart News, the outlet once led by Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon, published a story on Tuesday under the headline:...

    Once again, we have a perfect example of why the American people distrust the media. At Donald Trumpís New York Times presser, reporters were caught red-handed discussing whether or not they should ďboo or hissĒ at the lobby of the Trump Tower.
