    Never pick a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel,” the saying goes. Yet the Trump administration is picking a fight with American newspapers over something they buy at even greater cost and quantity: newsprint.
  • Want To Understand Why Trump Keeps Winning? Look At Democrat Hysteria (TDS)

    Marc Thiessen Says Schumer Has Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS)If you want to understand why Donald Trump is president today (and why he could very well win a second term), look to the Democrats' hysterical response to two of Trump's major foreign policy achievements over the past week. Last Thursday, the president traveled to Joint Base Andrews to greet three American hostages whose release he had secured from North Korea. Unlike his predecessor, Trump did it without sending the offending regime an unmarked plane loaded with hundreds of millions in hard currency. The return of these American captives should have been...

    The great pretenders in the major media claim objectivity in their performance of, ahem, journalism. But the partisanship is obvious, showing itself in how they choose the stories they cover and how they slant the coverage — all while accusing their competition of that sort of partisanship, and worse.They see the specks of dust in their opponents’ eyes, but not the lumber in their own. Unfortunately, this is not limited to Washington, New York, and other cosmopolitan outlets. Their nasty factional warfare can even be witnessed on Main Street in Middle America.Which brings me to Rob Port, a radio talk show host and...

    It’s Sunday so I offer a prayer for journalists: If you’re unfamiliar with the Dunning-Kruger Effect it states that some people are not only incompetent but their incompetence robs them of the mental ability to realize just how inept they are. Or put another way, they know not what they know not…Physics? I don’t need no stinkin’ physics!…and proceed accordingly.That seems to explain the vast majority of the journalist class. And perhaps this explains why: Journalists drink too much, are bad at managing emotions, and operate at a lower level than average, according to a new study. Excerpts: Journalists’ brains...

    It’s with a spasm of profits. For a preview of the newspaper industry’s coming death, turn your gaze to Colorado, where the withering and emaciated Denver Post finds itself rolling in profits. The Post’s controlling owner, “vulture capitalist” Randall Smith, has become journalism’s No. 1 villain for having cheapened and starved not just its Denver paper but many of the titles—including the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the San Jose Mercury News and the Orange County Register—that his firm, Alden Global Capital, operates through the Digital First Media chain. At the Post, Smith’s firm cut the newsroom from 184 journalists to...

    Greensboro News & Record ^ | 5/20/2018 | Albert Hunt
    A CNN poll last week showed that most Americans think Barack Obama was a better president than Donald Trump has been. The margin was huge: 19 percentage points. Trump supporters will yell “fake news,” but they’ll be wrong. Respondents to the same survey thought Hillary Clinton would have been a better president than Trump, but only by three percentage points. By comparison, she bested Trump in the 2016 popular vote by 2.1 percentage points. The wide preference for Obama over Trump (and Clinton) has little relationship to public attitudes toward policies on taxes, health care or Iran policy. (Obama and...

    One of the more notable differences between Watergate and the metastasizing scandals involving the FBI, our intelligence agencies, and the Obama administration -- subjects of the soon-to-be-released inspector general's report -- is that the media exposed Watergate. They aided and abetted the current transgressions. By providing a willing and virtually unquestioned repository for every anonymous leaker (as long as he or she was on the "right" side) in Washington and beyond, the press has evolved from being part of the solution to being a major part of the problem. Gone are the days of the true "whistle-blower." Here are the...

    breitbart ^ | JOHN NOLTE
    Maggie Haberman of the far-left New York Times is publicly blaming President Trump that the media deliberately took his “animal” comments about MS-13 gang members out of context. On Friday, when the president said the media had intentionally twisted his words as a means to make it sound as though he was describing all illegal immigrants as “animals,” he was exactly right. In the hopes of deceiving the American people, the media did deliberately lie. There is simply no other explanation. To begin with, whether you watch or read them, there is no nuance, ambiguity, or room for misinterpretation in...

    "The media has got to stop creating more of these monsters by oversaturation," Loesch said on NRATV Friday, just hours after a deadly shooting at Santa Fe High School claimed 10 lives. "I’m not saying don’t responsibly report on things as they happen," she continued. "Look, I understand it. But constantly showing the image of the murderer, constantly saying their name is completely unnecessary." Loesch argued that the names of shooters are often widely known because of media reporting or social media posts, and could prove tempting for would-be shooters looking for notoriety. She talked of a study that showed...

    Conservative Review ^ | 09/19/2017 | Chris Pandolfo ·
    Last March, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin argued that the Obama administration had ordered surveillance on the Trump campaign and that there was evidence to suggest information gathered during that surveillance was leaked to harm Donald Trump politically. Monday’s report that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped by the Obama administration before and after the election confirmed what Levin had said, proving Levin’s analysis — which was meticulously detailed and came from mainstream media sources — was correct. But back in March, the mainstream media dismissed Levin’s claims out of hand. Levin was labeled a “conspiracy theorist,” the...

    Maybe it’s a matter of timing. Maybe I’m not giving this a fair shake. But whenever I happen to tune in to CNN, there’s a panel of talking heads discussing President Trump and the porn star. Or President Trump and the Mueller investigation. Or President Trump and whether he’ll be impeached. Or President Trump and Jerusalem. Or President Trump and Saudi Arabia. Or President Trump and Iran. Or President Trump and North Korea. Or President Trump and the American economy. Or President Trump and pro-life legislation. Or President Trump and national security – or whatever the major topic is –...

    It didn’t take CNN long to start spreading fake news after Friday’s school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas. CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto and political correspondent Sara Murray both tweeted that today’s deadly shooting brings the total number of U.S. school shootings this year to 22. The list of school shootings used by CNN and other news outlets, however, wildly exaggerates the number by lumping in accidental firearm discharges, domestic disputes, and events that don’t involve students with the active shooter situations that most people don’t lump into the specific category of school shootings. (RELATED:...

    The Huffington Post ^ | May 18, 2018 | Kurt Bardella
    It’s often said that the definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior and expecting different results. In the case of President Donald Trump and the media, there really are two sides to this coin. Whenever Trump uses provocative and at times deliberately offensive terminology ― maybe it’s “shithole” or “rapists” or more recently “animals” ― an all too familiar cycle plays out like a rerun of a bad reality-TV show. First, you must remember that Trump is the emotional equivalent of a 5-year-old. Like a child, his actions are driven by positive reinforcement. When Trump talks tough on immigration,...

    Donald Trump is president of the United States. He doesn't do things at home or abroad the way they were done in past, to say the least.The Democrats have spent a year beating Mr. Trump over the head with whatever they or Mueller's lawyers could find, but the president's popularity has only grown and he keeps winning. Sometimes you have to break the rules, buck the experts or kick some butt to get the job done right. My father did all of those things to get Mikhail Gorbachev to come to the table during the Cold War. He built up...

    When President Trump recently referred to MS-13 gang members as “animals,” the mainstream media, left-wing pundits, and Democrats were outraged by the statement. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed Trump’s attack on MS-13 gang members, saying, “Does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?” Multiple media pundits, including the Washington Post‘s Jennifer Rubin,defended MS-13 gang members against Trump’s “animals” remark, calling the statement “disgusting” and attacking Evangelical Trump supporters. Similarly, the Associated Press was forced to apologize for falsely claiming that Trump was referring to illegal aliens when he made the “animals” remark....

    Eager to move a message that focuses on things like minimum wage hikes and health care premiums, [Democrats] have been overtaken by a steady stream of stories of Russian meddling, porn star payoffs, and shady Trump-world figures. Ultimately, many offices and aides have come to the conclusion that they should simply give up on trying to break through on cable news at all. “It’s impossible,” said one Senate aide, “unless you want to talk about Russia.” … [N]umerous other aides echoed this point, sharing stories of fruitless calls and emails to bookers and abrupt cancellations on pre-existing bookings.

    The young’uns may not believe it, but back before it was known as “classic rock,” you couldn’t just play your crossfire hurricane on Spotify. You had to spin it. Fittingly, that is exactly what the New York Times has done in Wednesday’s blockbuster report on the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. The quick take on the 4,100-word opus is that the Gray Lady “buried the lede.” Fair enough: You have to dig pretty deep to find that the FBI ran “at least one government informant” against the Trump campaign — and to note that the Times learned this because “current...
