    CNN is reportedly implementing strict new rules for the network's stories regarding Russia. CNNMoney executive editor Rich Barbieri sent out an email Saturday regarding the network's new rules after the network a day earlier issued a retraction on one of its stories. "No one should publish any content involving Russia without coming to me and Jason [Farkas]," said the email, obtained by BuzzFeed News. "This applies to social, video, editorial, and MoneyStream. No exceptions," the email added. "I will lay out a workflow Monday." The new restrictions come after CNN on Friday retracted a story that connected Anthony Scaramucci, a prominent...

    Peddling fake news does not, in fact, equate to a long-term successful business strategy, reporters for The New York Times are learning the hard way. The Gray Lady, which many in the media class consider the pinnacle of the information business, is struggling so much financially that reporters are expected to be laid off from the publication, along with many editors, the New York Post reports. “Reporters at the New York Times could soon be ‘vulnerable’ to the ax,” the Post’s Keith Kelly wrote. “If the ongoing round of voluntary buyouts being offered to editing staff does not get enough...
  • The Antithesis of Obstruction (Must Read)

    National Review ^ | 6/24/2017 | ANDREW C. MCCARTHY
    Trump did not obstruct a valid FBI investigation; he demanded the exposure of a false one. The “collusion” narrative was a fraud, plain and simple. We know that now. Hopefully, it won’t take another six months to grasp a second plain and simple truth: Collusion’s successor, the “obstruction” narrative, is a perversion. The Left loves narrative. The ever-expanding story manipulates time, space, and detail to fit a thematic framework. Political narrative has some surface appeal, but it is deeply flawed. It obscures plain and simple truth. So let’s stick with the plain and simple: The essence of obstruction is to...

    On Thursday evening, CNN investigative reporter Thomas Frank published a potentially explosive report involving an investigation of a Russian investment fund with potential ties to several associates of President Donald Trump. But by Friday night, the story was removed from CNN’s website and all links were scrubbed from the network’s social media accounts.

    A brand new PEW Research Center survey last week shows that gun ownership by households is up to 42 percent — an increase of 5 percentage points in the past four years. Yet, few mainstream media outlets announced the increase. In fact, the media goes out of its way to find polls claiming that Americans are turning away from guns. In my book, "War on Guns" the impression, the impression given by the media is that gun owners are a small, fringe group. Maybe they are hoping that this will have an impact on policy.

    Yesterday, we noted Kellyanne Conway mocking CNN's Russia fixation. Conway told Alisyn Camerota: "I know that we just like to say the word 'Russia, Russia' to try to mislead the voters. And I know that CNN is aiding and abetting this nonsense as well.” Well, if CNN likes to say "Russia, Russia," we'll need to multiply that 28 times to understand the depth of MSNBC's obsession with the subject. In the first hour of Joy Reid's MSNBC show this morning, the word "Russia" or "Russian" was heard . . . 56 times! View the amusing video here.

    Reporters are growing infuriated with the White House’s new press strategy designed to make them look ridiculous, a Thursday profile reveals. The White House is adopting a new approach to the way that it handles press briefings with the hopes of messing with reporters, CNN reported. The approach works like this: the White House will host a public briefing one day and then cancel their briefings for the next few days, causing outrage from media outlets and their reporters. When the anger over a lack of press briefings builds up, the White House will host an off-camera briefing and continue...

    On January 13, 2017, Homeland Security announced grants made by the outgoing, Obama-led, Homeland administration in an effort to focus its attention on countering radical Islam. One of the groups was “Life After Hate”. The outgoing Obama administration awarded Life After Hate $400,000. All they do is bash Trump and push anti-#MAGA propaganda. The Gateway Pundit previously reported: “The chairman of Life After Hate, Christian Picciolini, has published tweets for months calling for the Trump administration to be overthrown. In light of his group receiving $400,000 this year from Homeland and the current Homeland administration reevaluating such grants, these treasonous...

    Reporters at the New York Times could soon be “vulnerable” to the ax. If the ongoing round of voluntary buyouts being offered to editing staff does not get enough takers, the Gray Lady could begin another round, NYT Executive Editor Dean Baquet recently warned his top department editors. “Up until now, the company had not indicated that layoffs would happen if targeted numbers weren’t achieved,” Grant Glickson, president of the NewsGuild, told Media Ink. As part of the NYT’s ongoing restructuring of its editing ranks, 109 copy editors have had their jobs eliminated. There are estimated to be about 50...

    During an interview on Sean Hannity’s radio show yesterday, Camille Paglia destroyed Democrats, the media and journalists for their collusion and bias against Republicans and President Trump. “It’s obscene,” Pagilia said. “It’s outrageous, OK? It shows that the Democrats are nothing now but words and fantasy and hallucination and Hollywood. There’s no journalism left. What’s happened to The New York Times? What’s happened to the major networks? It’s an outrage.” Paglia called what she said the Democratic Party had done to journalism “absolutely grotesque” and warned it would take decades to recover. “I’m a professor of media studies, in addition...

    70% of the general public agrees that news organizations are subject to partisan agendas! The rise of fake news, a growing multitude of media sources, and an increasingly polarized nation have Americans learning to take their headlines with a grain of salt. New YouGov research shows that most Americans (70%) agree that news organizations report stories in a light that’s partial to who owns them. It’s interesting to note that the two prevailing political parties perceive media bias to varying degrees. About one in two Democrats (52%) believe that news media is influenced by funding while a drastically greater number...

    Voters are still critical of the news coverage President Trump is getting and continue to believe most reporters are out to get him. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 34% of Likely U.S. Voters rate the media coverage of the president as good or excellent. Forty-four percent (44%) describe the coverage of Trump as poor. Both findings are up slightly from January just before Trump took office and are consistent with views of the media coverage of last year's Clinton. vs. Trump presidential campaign.

    Two new polls demonstrate an ongoing, deepening distrust of the so-called “objective” news media, especially among Republicans. A new Rasmussen Reports poll published on Thursday found 76 percent of Republicans and 51 percent of voters not affiliated with either major political party believe most reporters are biased against the president, a view shared by only 24 percent of Democrats. Sixty-eight percent of GOP voters and a plurality (45 percent) of unaffiliateds think the media coverage of Trump is poor, but 49 percent of Democrats rate it as good or excellent.” The skepticism is growing deeper: “Fifty percent think most reporters...

    When Nabra Hassanen was brutally murdered in Virginia this past Sunday, the media's collective ears perked up. She was a studious, friendly, innocent 17-year-old, a devout Muslim who was killed while approaching her mosque. Almost immediately, The Atlantic ran with this headline: "Muslims Feel Under Seige." The magazine instinctively linked Nabra's killing with the London incident in which a man plowed his car into a group of Muslims leaving their mosque. "Muslim Americans are mourning and terrified," The Atlantic breathlessly reported, "after two violent incidents left worshippers dead over the weekend during the holy month of Ramadan." USA Today and...

    An Iowa newspaper ran a front-page editorial Wednesday telling President Trump that "now is not the time for a rally" ahead of his campaign event scheduled in the state later in the day. The editorial board of The Gazette in Cedar Rapids asked in an open letter to Trump for him to not hold his scheduled rally in the city but instead talk about his policies and how he will help Iowans. (TWEET-AT-LINK) “Mr. President, the campaign is over. You won. Now is not the time to rally. Now is the time to sell your policies, listen to Americans with...

    Some hope that the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others last Wednesday will lead to more civility in politics. It’s clear that the attack was politically motivated — the Democratic shooter even carried a hit list of Republicans. The political viciousness has been everywhere. While some will blame the violence on the grotesque picture of Kathy Griffin holding the President’s severed head or a play where the president is being stabbed to death, this Sunday Jill Abramson, the former chief editor of the New York Times, told CNN that it was “President Trump and the congressional leadership...

    The mainstream media’s assault on the Trump administration and its voters continues. The heated rhetoric has contributed to the rising instances of political violence from the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise to the refusal of service of those wearing Trump-related attire. Violence from the left has been the dominant theme during the six-month Trump administration and it does not appear to be slowing down. Conservatives shut down a play in the park for 30 seconds and the leftists freak out that they are fighting back. CNN’s Dean Obeidallah wrote an opinion piece about Trump supporters’ hypocrisy in recent days. He...

    Now, this “poll” isn’t scientific at all. It’s just one of those informal things that CNN threw up on their website and whoever wants to can respond. The findings here should in no way be taken as gospel truth. That being said – if CNN really wanted to gauge their readers’ opinions on this subject, maaaaaaaybe they should have gone with a slightly more accurate way of reporting it. Or if their goal was to make the president look bad (and who’s to say it wasn’t?) they could have come up with a different methodology. Either way, it’s a...
