    RUSH: The left is waiting for and the media, too… Don’t doubt me on this. The media is waiting for the first signs that Trump is ready to surrender for peace. They’re looking for the first signs that Trump’s maybe gonna start waving a little white handkerchief — not a flag, a little white hanky. Because they’re used to being able to affect things with the kind of things they’re dealing with with Trump. Nonstop televising of riots and protests and creating pictures that the whole country’s opposed to Trump. I think they’re used to this kind of thing weakening...
  • For White House Counterterror Adviser, Media Attacks Are Latest Theater of Battle (Gorka)

    Gorka said the goals for the new Trump administration's counterterrorism program and policies are simple. "As the president said [Friday] we will ‘obliterate' groups like ISIS and wipe the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism from the face of the earth," he said. The media attacks prompted friends and supporters of Gorka on Capitol Hill and in the military and special operations community to voice their support. "The bottom line is Sebastian Gorka's work is a necessary tool for all special operations forces in developing critical thinking," said an Army special operations officer familiar with Gorka's counterterrorism lectures in Tampa, Florida,...

    WASHINGTON – President Trump won’t attend the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner because he wasn’t elected to “pretend” to like reporters, a Trump aide said Sunday. “I think it’s kind of naive of us to think that we can all walk into a room for a couple of hours and pretend that some of that tension isn’t there,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders told ABC’s “This Week.” Sanders compared Trump’s open hostility with the press to getting egged. “One of the things we say in the South [is] if a Girl Scout egged your house, would you buy cookies from her?...

    Since President Donald Trump has been sworn in on Jan. 20, authorities have arrested an unprecedented number of sexual predators involved in child sex trafficking rings in the United States. This should be one of the biggest stories in the national news. Instead, the mainstream media has barely, if at all, covered any of these mass pedophile arrests.

    When writing the 1st Amendment to the Constitution, one area of speech the Founders were specifically interested in protecting was that of a free press. They saw the press as a sort of fourth branch of government, one that would keep the “checks and balances” of the other three branches honest. However, over time the same press that was given protection has eroded into a propaganda machine driven by money and political agendas of those who own the media outlets. They have crawled into bed with the very entities they are to keep in “check” and bust out if corrupted....

    Journalists "find a renewed sense of mission," reports The New York Times. That's nice. There is some truth to this. And it's not fake news. With the election of Donald Trump to the presidency, journalism, in a typical pattern of self-congratulatory excess, has dusted off an old cliche to announce that it is once again "speaking truth to power." Behold. That which was lost has now been found. But it isn't exactly like setting out on a long and frightening sea voyage to find an undiscovered country, is it?

He’s the first Republican president who responds immediately to biased reporting and doesn’t let a single charge go by unrefuted. He is totally unafraid of being combative and confrontational. He has empowered and emboldened his advisors and spokespeople, like Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway and Reince Priebus -- to act likewise, with effective results.

But unlike his usual undercover sting operations, this footage was allegedly sourced from a CNN insider who apparently grew frustrated with the perpetually biased reporting of the "fake news" media outlet. Per O'Keefe's website, today's release includes 119 hours of secretly recorded raw footage from an inside source at CNN with another 100 hours of footage still to be released.

    For years journalists opined self-servingly under the guise of objectivity and got away it because Republicans were too afraid to shatter that illusion of objectivity. They permitted the media to serve as the arbiter of what qualifies as “mainstream,” “extremist,” “racist,” and so forth, and made sure to stay within the media-determined parameters of any discussion. Donald Trump has blown up that absurd arrangement and is beating the media at its own game. He labels reporters in the same way that they label him. He upends their dishonest framing of debates by treating them as what they are, liberal partisans....

The latest Gallup poll released Saturday local time shows that Trump only had a 40 percent approval rating, 21 percentage points below the average rating for presidents in their first month in office. Trump said that "any negative poll is fake news," but analysts believe he does care about the results. Trump's first month in the Oval Office can only be described as bumpy.

We criticize presidents. They want to criticize us back, that's fine," Wallace said Sunday morning on "Fox & Friends." "But when he said that the fake news media is not my enemy, it's the enemy of the American people, I believe that crosses an important line."

    Moments ago, Melania Trump appeared before a crowd of rally-goers to introduce her husband, President Donald Trump. The First Lady began her speech by leading the audience in The Lord’s Prayer. This didn’t sit well with many Twitter users, who quickly began blasting Melania’s use of the prayer. @CNNPolitics separation of church and state.

    After leaving The Washington Post in 1977, Carl Bernstein spent six months looking at the relationship of the CIA and the press during the Cold War years. His 25,000-word cover story, published in Rolling Stone on October 20, 1977, is reprinted below.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Just when you thought the MSM might be running out of hyperbole about President Trump’s criticism of the media, along comes Carl Bernstein . . . On CNN’s Reliable Sources today, Bernstein unleashed a torrent of accusations about the president. Lowlights: Trump’s attacks on the media “more treacherous” than Nixon’s. Apophasis alert: “I’m not about to say anything comparing Hitler and Trump”, but Hitler and Stalin also used the phrase “enemy of the people” about the media. Trump is “leading a demagogic attack on the institutions of free democracy.” “This is a terrible time we’re living in.” View the video...

    The liberal media took Senator John McCain’s warning of a dictator Donald Trump during Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC and ran with it as the biggest story of the day, seeming to use it as a vindication of their smears since day one. “Is that over the top? Or is there a concern,” ABC’s Jon Karl inquired to Senator Rand Paul on This Week. While on CBS’s Face the Nation, moderator John Dickerson worried that Trump supporters would take it upon themselves and violently “act” against the “enemy” press. Karl’s statement was actually more pointed and seemed to suggest...

    During Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC finally became worried about “skyrocketing” illegal immigration and the strain on resources. But it was not illegal immigration into the United States they were fretting about, but that into Canada. “Illegally crossing the border, fueled by fears after recent immigration raids and uncertainty over President Trump's executive order,” announced co-anchor Dan Harris during the opening tease, “Can Canada handle this new influx?” “Yeah, we're watching scenes of immigrants and their families, with young children, fleeing the U.S., crossing illegally, all hoping to begin the process of emigrating there as refugees,” co-anchor Paula Faris reiterated...

    As the shooter John Hinckley returns to life outside of imprisonment, it worth looking back at every thing the media got wrong that day. At 2:27 p.m. on March 30, 1981, Secret Service agents were escorting President Ronald Reagan and White House staffers from a speech before the AFL-CIO at the Washington Hilton Hotel. About 100 people waited by the side entrance of the hotel to see the president as he walked to his limousine, which was parked about 12 feet away on T Street NW. Wearing a blue suit, Reagan smiled and waved, pausing for a split second as...

    The phrase “fake news” gets thrown around a lot, but not for the reasons media would like (see Tucker Carlson Almost Makes a Washington Post Reporter Cry Over ‘Fake News’ and Joe Scarborough Ground and Pounds Anti-Trump Media Over Fake News). A Hospital CEO from Georgia accused CNN of fabricating a story, and now he has a court decision to back him up… "Those who accuse CNN and other mainstream media outlets of “fake news” will probably revel in a recent decision by a federal judge in Atlanta, Georgia."
