  • Newspapers Throw Tantrum; Trump Responds

    The New American ^ | 17 August 2018 | R. Cort Kirkwood
    More than 300 newspapers joined the Big Cry in publishing self-righteous editorials to justify their ideological disposition and take yet another shot at The Donald: Trump is Bad. We are not “Enemies of The People.” But after the foot-stomping tantrum, nothing much happened. Americans woke up Friday to the same great country — and the same awful media — as they did Thursday. Globe Leads the Charge The leader of the gang was The Boston Globe, the liberal media’s Mrs. Grundy, which opened with what logicians call the straw man: arguing against a point no one made: A central pillar...
  • The Guardian openly supports turning video games into leftist propaganda

    Every major video game outlet is Left-wing. Anyone who visits any major gaming site knows this. They’re all in support of subverting video games using Anita Sarkeesian’s anti-fun model of game design. They’re all in support of the Leftist agenda whenever it rears its head in indie or AAA games. And now they’ve come to a point where they’re literally coming out and claiming that video games simply need to become Leftist propaganda. In an article written by Alfie Brown and published on The Guardian on August 13th, 2018, Brown makes no qualms about coming out and saying that game...

    Morning Call ^ | uncredited
    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has announced it will stop publishing the newspaper two days a week. According to a letter sent to the newspaper's employee union Wednesday, the newspaper is shrinking its printing schedule as part of a plan to become a digital news organization. The change will go into effect Aug. 25. Officials have not specified which days will be cut. Senior Human Resources Manager Linda Guest says in the letter, “the nature of our operations will change substantially.” The owners of the 232-year-old paper, Ohio-based Block Communications, have not responded to requests for comment.

    As employees from the paper protest against massive cuts to the newsroom and top editors resign, staffers tell The Daily Beast, ‘This is chaos.’ ==================================================================================== It seems odd that they’re fighting for the right to speak at a place called The Lipstick Building. Today, 150 journalists from the Denver Post, the St. Paul Pioneer Press, and the Mercury News, and 49 other smaller papers who are accustomed to reporting the news will become the news, as they protest the owner of their papers in what some have called “a fight for their lives.” Alden Global Capital has been surprisingly silent...

Editorial Page Editor Chuck Plunkett ... The Post last month published Plunkett's initial editorial headlined "As vultures circle, The Denver Post must be saved," calling on Alden to sell the newspaper. ... Plunkett said he was warned afterward "not to bite the hand that fed us" but couldn't stay silent.

    The Denver Post is in open revolt against its owner. Angry and frustrated journalists at the 125-year-old newspaper took the extraordinary step this weekend of publicly blasting its New York-based hedge-fund owner and making the case for its own survival ... The bold tactic was born out of a dissatisfaction not uncommon in newsrooms across the country as newspapers grapple with the loss of revenue ... The lead editorial pulled no punches, describing executives at Alden Global Capital, the paper’s hedge-fund owner, as “vulture capitalists.” ... “The @denverpost is being murdered by its owners,” one Post reporter, John Wenzel, wrote...

  • Peter Thiel Planning Launch Of Conservative News Outlet With Mercers Family After Bannon Fiasco

    Billionaire investor Peter Thiel is reportedly considering launching a conservative news outlet backed by the powerful Mercer family, along with a “cast of Fox News celebrities,” according to Michael Wolff book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” and a report from BuzzFeed news. According to Wolff, Fox News chairman Roger Ailes and Peter Thiel were set to discuss the idea of a conservative news outlet last May – however Ailes slipped and fell two days before the meeting, hitting his head and dying before the discussion could occur. Word of Thiel’s potential new venture with the Mercers is...

    November 27, the Denver Post set into motion its latest round of layoffs just over a year after shrinking the newsroom staff by 26 employees through the combination of a buyout offer and supplementary dismissals. Seven positions included in the Post's contract with the Denver Newspaper Guild are affected, and another four employees working non-union gigs also appear to have been discharged. "The Post gave the required two-week notice of layoff in seven union covered positions," notes the DNG's Tony Mulligan, corresponding via email. "Four are in the newsroom and three are in advertising support." ... As for why the...

    Jann Wenner has landed between a rock and a hard place as he struggles to sell Rolling Stone. The 71-year-old publishing magnate will pay dearly for clinging to the rock-and-roll magazine he founded 50 years ago, sources told The Post, as prospective buyers have evaporated along with music fans’ habit of buying glossy print titles at newsstands. “Jann knows he made his mark on American culture already and he is a realist,” said author Joe Hagan, whose biography on Wenner, titled “Sticky Fingers,” is set to hit next month from Random House. “The landscape has changed and he was not...

    Contemplating life after devastating loss to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton said that she would like to be buried with copies of all the newspapers that endorsed her. “I want to be buried with my editorial endorsements,” Clinton said in an interview with New York Times Magazine. “I want an open casket and they can all be piled on top of me. You won’t even be able to see my body.”

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange recently discussed the topic of “fake news” and how WikiLeaks’ pure data-driven approach has prevented them from becoming “weaponized text.” CNET reports that Assange appeared via video-link in a discussion with Australian comedian Chas Licciardello in Sydney, Australia this week. During the interview, Assange discussed the idea of “fake news” and how WikiLeaks’ refusal to editorialize their content and rather provide pure data to the public has allowed them to publish facts without bias. “What is special about WikiLeaks is that it’s not just another damn story,” said Assange, “it’s not just another damn journalist putting...

    he Pittsburgh Tribune-Review newspaper printed its last edition and has laid off 106 workers as it transitions into an online-only publication. Wednesday's edition ends a 24-year run that began when the late billionaire publisher Richard Mellon Scaife established the paper to compete with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which remains the only printed daily newspaper in the city. Trib Total Media will continue publishing two daily print editions for the suburbs, the Greensburg-based Westmoreland edition of the Tribune-Review and the Tarentum-based Valley News Dispatch edition, as well as 11 of the other 14 weeklies owned by Trib Total Media.

    BizPac Review ^ | oct 30 2016 | Carmine Sabia
    A central Florida newspaper has apologized to its readers for the decidedly anti-Donald Trump coverage that has been published during the election. The Daily Commercial published an editorial titled “The media, the election and bias” on Oct. 23 that explained the paper is reliant on wire services for much of its election coverage and those reports are weighted heavily against Trump. “The Daily Commercial hasn’t done enough to mitigate the anti-Trump wave in the pages of this paper,” it wrote. “You deserve a more balanced approach to the coverage of elections and other weighty issues.” Read more: http://www.bizpacreview.com/2016/10/30/fla-paper-makes-unprecidented-apology-readers-anti-trump-coverage-deserve-balance-406267#ixzz4OdXSJUkV

    Donald Trump picked up his first major newspaper endorsement of the November election over the weekend when the Las Vegas Review-Journal became one of the few to back the Republican nominee. “These are turbulent times,” the newspaper, which is owned by Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson, said in an editorial. “More and more Americans express frustration and disillusionment today with the political institutions that govern the nation. They clamor for an alternative to the incestuous and pernicious atmosphere dominating the capital. They see a vast array of lobbyists, elected officials and entrenched interests manipulating the levers of power for their own...

    The subscription cancellations were coming every 10 minutes. Angry readers have been calling in droves. One caller issued a death threat. “We’re feeling the weight of our history,” Phil Boas, the editorial page editor of The Arizona Republic, said in a telephone interview on Wednesday. Until it endorsed Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, the newspaper, founded in 1890, had never endorsed a Democrat over a Republican for president. The Cincinnati Enquirer, which endorsed Mrs. Clinton last week, put it particularly bluntly: “Trump is a clear and present danger to our country.” For some readers, however, the endorsements proved a step too...

    The Dallas Morning News on Wednesday endorsed Hillary Clinton, backing a Democratic presidential hopeful for the first time since FDR. “There is only one serious candidate on the presidential ballot in November: We recommend Hillary Clinton,” the paper’s editorial board declared. “We don’t come to this decision easily. This newspaper has not recommended a Democrat for this nation’s highest since before World War II – if you’re counting, that’s more than 75 years and nearly 20 elections.” The newspaper touted Clinton’s government experience and said she’s demonstrated an ability to work with Republicans. “Resume vs. resume, judgment vs. judgment, this...
