  • Views from QCA: Donald Trump controlling the minds of American media

    The Dispatch-Argus ^ | May 21, 2017 | Eugene Mattecheck Jr.
    "Never let them get control of your mind." I've used that phrase my whole life. It means think critically, don't let emotion cloud your intellect. The media today, doesn't subscribe to that philosophy. They don't control their own minds. Donald Trump does. Mainstream media laughed off his candidacy. There was a belief he wasn't serious. YouTube videos abound with entertainers, pundits and politicians saying, "Donald Trump will never become president." The majority of pollsters, operating in a "used to be" reality used old methods to canvass a new world. "Popular culture," unaware they are neither popular, nor culture, made it...

    American Lookout/Fox News ^ | 5/2017 | By Ryan Saavedra
    A study by liberal Harvard has revealed that the overwhelming majority of coverage that the media is giving President Trump is negative, more so than any other previous Presidents. Fox News Insider reported: The Trump administration is “setting a new standard for unfavorable press coverage of a president,” according to a new study by professor of government and the press Thomas E. Patterson at the Harvard Kennedy School and Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy. The study looked at cable news outlets CNN, CBS, Fox News and NBC, the Financial Times and BBC in the UK, and ARD...
  • The anonymous ‘heroes’ of the Resistance (the news media and their "anonymous" sources)

    Washington Times ^ | May 17, 2017
    Anonymous sources may not always be reliable, but they’re always convenient. More than that, anonymous accounts are usually made of putty, soft and easily shaped. Not only that, an anonymous source never claims he was misquoted. He never demands a correction or a retraction. The Washington Post, which deals in anonymous sources for many of its blockbuster disclosures, is particularly skilled at working with anonymous sources, and gets more out of them than almost any other newspaper. Bob Woodward, of Woodward and Bernstein fame, once based a blockbuster on an interview with a man in a deep coma, and at...

    This week, the media freak-out over nightly “bombshell” revelations regarding evidence of President Trump’s apparent malfeasance and general abject incompetence reached, perhaps prematurely, a 9.5 out of 10. It culminated with Friday’s story that Trump told a Russian spy, in the Oval Office, that he fired the FBI Director, who is a “real nut job,” because he was investigating their involvement in our election and that he had gotten rid of the problem. Within the last two weeks, there have been several stories about Trump which, in an era where the mainstream news media wasn’t coming off of eight years...

    Trump's enemies’ destabilizing, anarchistic efforts are pushing this country toward a crisis from which it may never recover. They are truly threatening our nation's very existence Trump leaked classified information! He tweeted something stupid! He is offending our allies and encouraging our enemies! He is a threat to national security and must resign now! Such are the fanatical ravings coming from the Lords of the Press, the Democrat Party, and a rogues’ gallery of brain-dead Republicans. I am absolutely sick to death of it!
  • CNN Host To Bob Schieffer: People Will Say You’re ‘Normalizing’ Trump by Praising Saudi Speech

    Bob Schieffer is an old-school newsman. There’s no doubt that the former Face the Nation host leans left, but he is still capable of reporting, you know, the news. That is too much for denizens of the modern MSM to tolerate. On today’s Reliable Sources on CNN, Schieffer reported the glaringly obvious truth: that President Trump gave a good speech in Saudi Arabia today. Guest host John Berman had to push back: “you know, Bob, though, that there will be people who look at that last comment you made and say you’re normalizing the president.” View the video here.

    “Civilization has been aptly called a ‘thin crust over a volcano.’ (Liberals) are constantly picking at that crust.” -- Thomas Sowell After Hollywood jackass Jimmy Kimmel was criticized for exploiting his son’s illness to push his political agenda and incorrectly insinuating that surgeries for newborns weren’t covered before Obamacare, he did a follow-up on the subject where he said, “I would like to apologize for saying that children in America should have health care. It was insensitive, it was offensive, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.” Drop dead, Jimmy Kimmel, you colossal ass....

    American Greatness ^ | Roger Kimball
    In the preface to the 1852 edition of his book [Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds - free on Kindle], Mackay notes that nations, like individuals, have their “seasons of excitement and and recklessness, when they care not what they do.” We find whole communities suddenly fix their minds upon one object, and go mad in its pursuit; that millions of people become simultaneously impressed with one delusion, and run after it, till their attention is caught by some new folly. . . . We’re there, friends. The “one object,” the single “delusion” that has caught the attention...

    How do you IMPEACH a president like that, pretenders-to-the-presidency Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other pitchfork and torch carriers in the ‘Impeach Trump cabal’? Only by utterly ignoring all sanity. IF a malevolent MainstreamMedia-Politically-Progressive Complex can, at will, take down President Donald Trump with baseless accusations and innuendo , then what’s to stop them from doing the same to any private citizen from any walk of life? Saul Alinsky originated freeze, isolate, charge, find guilty without truth or trial is what Democrats use to get rid of all enemies, not just presidents they hate.

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 5/21/17 | Jim Hoft
    Per an analysis of a dozen of the most recent so called ‘leaks’ being reported and repeated by the liberal mainstream media (MSM) involving President Trump, the probability that these ‘leaks’ are just plain lies is very high. An analysis of the most recent leaks clearly shows that the leaks are being reported by very biased liberal MSM outlets that were adamantly opposed to the election of President Trump. These ‘leaks’ in all cases are not supported with any names of so-called sources. Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly made some statements in the ‘leaks’ but to this date he...

    Breitbart ^ | May 19, 2017 | Joel B. Pollak
    The common element in nearly all the major New York Times and Washington Post stories about President Donald Trump this week is that they are based on source documents the outlets cannot authenticate, do not possess, admit are partial, and refuse to share. Friday’s supposed “bombshell” stories follow the same pattern. The Times reports that Trump told the visiting Russians that former FBI director James Comey was a “nut job,” and that firing him had eased “pressure” in his ability to conduct foreign policy — though the Times takes Trump to mean the legal pressure of the investigation. (That spin...

The four entities are as follows: Media Matters for America, American Bridge, CREW, and Shareblue. Each has their own strategic plan.

    This week, the Media Research Center posted a study of one CNN day showing that the network is obsessed with President Trump and the overwhelming majority of CNN’s experts opining on Trump are highly negative. CNN’s rare allowance of pro-Trump voices often come from commentators they pay to defend Trump. So why insult them when that’s what you pay them to do? On his primetime show AC360 Friday night, Anderson Cooper interrupted one of Jeffrey Lord's defenses of Trump -- saying he doesn't care what Trump tells the Russians -- by saying "if he took a dump on his desk, you...

    On Joy Reid's show this morning, MSNBC terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance said that if the United States "were some third-world nation right now, we'd be watching the army to see if the tanks are getting ready to move for a coup. Or if a guy jumps on a plane and flies to Monaco with all the money from the state." Sounds like a "helpful" suggestion/wishful thinking from MSNBC. Nance, by the way, is the person who nominated a Trump property for an ISIS suicide attack. To date, there's no evidence online that he has apologized or been disciplined by MSNBC....

    Journalists’ brains show a lower-than-average level of executive functioning, according to a new study, which means they have a below-average ability to regulate their emotions, suppress biases, solve complex problems, switch between tasks, and show creative and flexible thinking. The study, led by Tara Swart, a neuroscientist and leadership coach, analyzed 40 journalists from newspapers, magazines, broadcast, and online platforms over seven months. The participants took part in tests related to their lifestyle, health, and behavior. It was launched in association with the London Press Club, and the objective was to determine how journalists can thrive under stress. Each subject...

    Newt Gingrich thinks the new reports from The New York Times and The Washington Post about the ongoing investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia are "garbage." On "The Story" tonight, Gingrich pointed out that neither story cites any sources by name, and he said they're intended purely to "smear" President Trump. "And yet, these are 'bombshells'? No, they're not. They're just more of the left-wing hatred for Trump," Gingrich said. {..snip..}

    Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” former CBS anchor Dan Rather said the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign was “reassuring” given it makes President Donald Trump “the hunted.” Rather said, “What a news night, almost surreal. And of course dangerous for the country. But in the same token, I do think there is something reassuring about this. For most of the early stages of the Trump presidency, the question begged are we still a country of laws or have we become or are we becoming...

    Prominent American lawyer and author Alan Dershowitz, a Democrat, told Elizabeth MacDonald on FOX Business Network that he had seen no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump and Russia and even if there was evidence it wasn’t a crime. Alan Dershowitz: Well first of all I don’t see any evidence of collusion, and second even if there was major collusion, that’s not a crime. Even hypothetically if the administration or the candidate got together with the Russians and said, “Please help me become president. Do whatever you can to help me.” That wouldn’t be a crime… The most serious condemnations...
