  • The Nuclear Option ó 2016: The Year The Experts Got Everything Wrong

    Breitbart ^ | 4 May 2016 | Charles Hurt
    If in the Land of the Blind, the one-eyed man is king, then columnist David Brooks of the New York Times is blind, deaf and dumb inside the Beltway. In an election year where all the experts have been exactly wrong about absolutely everything, it really is something of a feat to be as spectacularly and enthusiastically wrong as Mr. Brooks. This probably should not come as much of a surprise, given how highly revered the pundit-scribe is inside the Beltway. He serves as some kind of ďRepublican voiceĒ for the New York Times and offers up nerdy commentary for...

    The Hardball host was heard enthusiastically commenting on Mrs Trump's 'runway walk' as she joined her husband for his victory speech in Indiana on Tuesday. While Brian Williams was speaking about the impact the result would have on the Republican party, Matthews could be heard talking about Mrs Trump's appearance. Apparently unaware he was speaking into a hot mic, Matthews said: 'Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good. I could watch that runway show.'

    Leftist Violence & Double Standards When will the media decry the culture of violence of Clinton and Sanders' supporters? May 3, 2016 Ari Lieberman †† The so-called ďmainstreamĒ national media has developed a penchant for focusing on violence originating from certain quarters while all but ignoring hooliganism emanating from others. The disparity in treatment is due primarily to an agenda being pushed by leftist elements within the media establishment, including, but not limited to, MSNBC and the New York Times. Violence emanating from Trump supporters buttresses a false narrative that many within the establishment media wish to propagate; namely...

I suppose you shouldnít expect much from a segment billed as Coffee with the Candidates, yet I still entered the studio with relatively high expectations, most of which would be dashed over the course of the next hour.

    First Amendment: More information travels faster to more consumers than ever before. So why does a new survey show trust in media at rock bottom? Because so much more accurate information is available elsewhere. When Matt Drudge in early 1998 broke the story of President Bill Clintonís indiscretions in the Oval Office study with Monica Lewinsky, it was the dawn of a new era in news reporting. Woodward and Bernstein seemed like the hip, new faces of journalism when they came along in the early 1970s and helped bring down a president. But although no one ever made a movie...

    WASHINGTON (AP) ó Trust in the news media is being eroded by perceptions of inaccuracy and bias, fueled in part by Americans' skepticism about what they read on social media. Just 6 percent of people say they have a lot of confidence in the media, putting the news industry about equal to Congress and well below the public's view of other institutions. In this presidential campaign year, Democrats were more likely to trust the news media than Republicans or independents. But trust today also goes beyond the traditional journalistic principles of accuracy, balance and fairness. Faced with ever-increasing sources of...

    Russia Insider ^ | October 21, 2015 | Nina Kouprianova
    The trope of ĎRussian state propagandaí in mainstream Western media is a persistent one, especially as of late. This continued focus expresses oneís own loss of control as older cable-news models are in decline, the media landscape becomes more diverse, and various web platforms allow younger savvy users to locate alternative information sources. This kind of repetitive finger-pointing is also simultaneously meant to delegitimize Russiaís foreign-language broadcasting and to explain the support for Putin domestically. The notion in question relies on a number of related assumptions: ēthat Western countries do not have state media; ēthat corporate media is impartial; ēthat...

It seems that most Americans operate on the assumption that the media is making a good-faith, if imperfect, effort at objectively informing its audience. That so few are genuinely aware of the outrageous manipulation of public opinion now taking place is the single greatest threat to the republic, to the extent that we can even say that our republic still...

    NEW YORK (AP) ó In television news, a telephone interview is typically frowned upon. Donald Trump's fondness for them is changing habits and causing consternation in newsrooms, while challenging political traditions. Two organizations are circulating petitions to encourage Sunday morning political shows to hang up on Trump. Some prominent holdouts, like Fox's Chris Wallace, refuse to do on-air phoners. Others argue that a phone interview is better than no interview at all. Except in news emergencies, producers usually avoid phoners because television is a visual medium ó a face-to-face discussion between a newsmaker and questioner is preferable to a picture...

Ben Schreckinger, who has been covering Trump for more than six months, was denied access to Tuesday night's "press conference" -- Trump did not actually take any questions -- despite the fact that the campaign had already given press credentials. In blocking Schreckinger, the Trump campaign appears to have been following through on a threat it made last week to exclude Politico reporters from campaign events because...

Halperin also had a warning for Republicans: 'just wait until a general election if Hillary Clinton is the nominee at how much faux outrage her campaign shows over whoever the Republicans nominate."

Wallace made the case that Rubio has the right to remain in as much as Kasich, both their strategies being to survive to a hopefully brokered convention.

    Sen. Jeff Sessions endorses Trump at a rally with about 32,000 people and talk radio ignores it? Sessions, the `Gold Standard' of conservative Senators, endorses Trump, and crickets? Trump has lifted the veil on more pundits and politicians that I have ever seen, at least in my lifetime, and my first vote was for Nixon. They are trying to hang onto their existence. It is absolutly clear to me that Trump is leading a Rebellion and not a campaign. The status quo must be maintained at all costs......eh? Am I wrong in this? Are there things that Donald says that...

    Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday called on 2016 GOP rival Donald Trump to ask The New York Times to release an off-the-record conversation Mr. Cruz said could show Mr. Trump is open to softening his hard-line positions on immigration. Buzzfeed reported Monday that the newspaper has audio of a conversation with Mr. Trump from a January editorial board meeting and, citing sources ďfamiliar with the recording,Ē that Mr. Trump might have indicated a measure of flexibility in his immigration plans. Speaking to reporters before a rally in San Antonio ó and again at the rally ó Mr. Cruz said Mr....

    MSNBC goes to a video out at one of his rally's expecting to go to someone slamming Trump. Backfired totally when the link goes to a black man deriding David Duke, racism, etc. Totally caught with egg on face, as they were not expecting a black man to downplay the whole BS issue.
  • VIDEO: Reporter Grabs Secret Service Agentís Throat at Trump Rally

    According to The Independent Journalís congressional reporter Joe Perticone, the man holding the camera in the video below is a journalist. Perticone writes, ďSecret Service agent choke slams reporter. Ē The video doesnít show that, but it does show this reporter kicking the agent from an apparent defensive position. Nevertheless, once whatever happened between the two men is over, and both are standing, watch the reporter suddenly reach out and grab the Secret Service agentís throat.

    MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry, whose show airs on weekends, has been officially declared persona non grata at the liberal news network. Perry, who felt that her show's editorial control was taken away, coupled with the allegation that she was being shut out of the 2016 election coverage; publicly aired her grievances in an email to her staff that was published on Medium. The New York Times pick it up, where she clarified that she doesn't know if there was untying racial at the heart of her dispute with executives; that email to her staff contained racially charged rhetoric. With this little war...

    The Center For Disease Control has released a detailed report regarding causes of death, using data from 2013. The report was released on February 16th, and nearly a week later, no mention of it by Bloombergís Everytown For Gun Safety, which is the research and PAC wing of his gun control efforts. Thereís a reason for the silence. They donít want you to know that gun related homicide doesnít even crack the top 15 causes of death in America.

    Melissa Harris-Perry may be too progressive for the new MSNBC. The anchor, who has hosted a weekend program on the NBCUniversal-owned cable-news outlet since 2012, said she will not host her show this weekend in what appears to be a significant difference of opinion regarding her role at the network, which has in recent months focused more intently on breaking-news coverage and politics in recent months. ¬ďHere is the reality: Our show was taken‚Ää¬ó‚Ääwithout comment or discussion or notice‚Ää¬ó‚Ääin the midst of an election season,¬Ē Harris-Perry wrote in a note that was reported previously by the New York Times, then...
  • Clueless MSNBC Reporter Goes to Gun Range; It Doesn‚Äôt End Well

    A MSNBC correspondent on Tuesday decided to do a live report from a gun range. As one could guess, it didn‚Äôt go well. Reporter Kerry Sanders pointed at the gun-rights fans and began, "There are lots of folks here who believe that Second Amendment in this country is under attack.‚ÄĚ Seconds later, the shooting started. The Second Amendment afficionados drowned Sanders out. He sounded like this: ‚ÄúA short distance away later today [BLAM] Donald Trump [BLAM] ‚ÄĒ protect the Second Amendment.‚ÄĚ He soldiered on, shifting to other topics. But it came across as this: ‚ÄúTalking about [BLAM] Ted Cruz has...

    Trump faced yet another MSM/D.C. orchestrated political debate ambush in Houston. Nearly every politician on the stage, the media, the audience, which was stacked with Bush's, lobbyist, influence peddlers, donors and media, were all gunning for Trump. And America once again saw this for what it was. The entire event was about getting rid of Trump and keeping everything in D.C. business as usual. But it's not going to happen for them. And the dozens of polls I've seen, very much support Trump overwhelmingly. I am slowly regaining hope for America. How must have Trump seen this when he entered...

    Ted Cruz's presidential bid is in turmoil after repeated allegations of unsavory campaign tactics by his Republican rivals, leading some key supporters to call for a shake-up in the candidate's message and strategy a week ahead of the crucial Super Tuesday primaries. Aides and allies of the insurgent senator from Texas acknowledged in interviews this week that the campaign has been damaged by attacks on Cruz's integrity from Donald Trump and Marco Rubio. They have pointed to a series of questionable tactics by the Cruz camp, including calls to voters suggesting that candidate Ben Carson was dropping out and the...
