    A couple of years ago, our paper which serves two large counties, switched from doing its own national review of AP and other source stories and started using the USA Today national insert. People at that time objected because of the extreme left-wing slant of the USA Today staff, but the paper cited costs. Well, during the Presidential campaign, USA Today was in for Hillary with both feet. Then came all the 'fake news' and the chief editor of the paper is now asking the readers if we want to go back to the paper vetting the stories or keeping...

    On February 17, 2017, President Donald Trump created a firestorm of controversy when he tweeted that the news media (The New York Times, CNN, NBC, and many more) is not his enemy, but is the enemy of the American people. In scrutinizing the Times, in relation to the culture war and major issues within the public square, the indictment, though I have many differences with the president, rings true for me, because, the vast majority of the time, I find myself on one side of an issue and theyÂ’re on the other.And, more than that, there is an overall historical...

    The Nonpareil ^ | April 8, 2017 | Steve Jordon
    OMAHA — The parent company of The Daily Nonpareil and The Omaha World-Herald announced last Monday it eliminated 289 jobs across the country, including 108 vacant positions. BH Media Group, based in Omaha, is reducing costs because of declining advertising and circulation revenue. BH Media is the newspaper division of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. It now employs 4,450 people. Terry Kroeger, president and chief executive, said in a memo to BH Media employees that some of the company’s 31 newspapers are reducing other expenses, including the number of pages they print. None of the job cuts were at The Nonpareil or...

    The comment was revealed by model/actress Emily Ratajkowski The New York Times reprimanded a reporter Monday following an allegation the reporter publicly referred to unfounded rumors about first lady Melania Trump. The allegations were made public by model/actress Emily Ratajkowski, who said the unnamed reporter repeated unsubstantiated claims about Trump's past in her vicinity at an event Sunday night. (TWEETS-AT-LINK) Ratajkowski added the "gender specific attacks" were "disgusting" and "sexist." In a statement released to NBC, a Times spokesperson did not identify the reporter, but confirmed an incident occurred. "At a party last night, a Times reporter who does not...

    Associated Press ^ | Feb 8, 2017 4:45 PM EST | Julie Carr Smyth
    Republican Gov. John Kasich repeated his belief in the importance of the free press Wednesday as tensions between the media and the administration of President Donald Trump remain high. The former congressman and 2016 presidential contender declined to directly take on Trump, who he refused to endorse, campaign with or vote for last year, while speaking to editors and publishers convened by the Ohio Newspaper Association. But Kasich said he wanted to see the industry survive and thrive. “I’d like to stand for all of you, for all of you who have real content, for all of you who’ve decided...
  • Dem Rep on Russian Hacking: 'I Only Know What I'm Reading in the Newspapers'

    The CIA reportedly found that the Russia hacks were part of an effort to help put Donald Trump in the White House, a conclusion that the president-elect strongly rejects.   “Did you hear from intelligence sources that Russia’s intent was to put Donald Trump in the White House?” CNN host Carol Costello asked Engel on Monday.   “I haven’t heard from intelligence sources,” Engel said. “I only know what I’m reading in the newspapers, but intelligence sources have not contacted members of Congress. I’m calling on the intelligence sources to brief the members of Congress to give us a...

    Two pillars of local journalism are facing cuts. Sources confirm a Crain's Detroit business report that indicates the entire editorial staff at the Detroit News has been offered buyouts -- regardless of seniority. They have a week to decide before layoffs are announced. Sources tell 7 Action News staffers at the Detroit Free Press will be made a similar offer as early as Wednesday. Tim Kiska is a former staffer for both papers. "This is not good, I don't think, for public discourse at all. This is a disaster," Kiska said.

    It is interesting that the news of these Soros tools rioting is subtly being portrayed as grass roots protests. Our so-called news agencies do not seem to see the professionally made signs, common chants and where the protests are located. Nope they would rather keep the narrative of grass-root protests. A real news agency would have by now dug into the above facts and reported the truth. But then again they have shown themselves as a major portion of the conspiracy raging in this country against this country. They long ago joined those that have decided that this country was...

Like many of the recent polls from Reuters, ABC and The Washington Post, this latest poll included a 9-point sampling bias toward registered democrats. ... for all of you out there who still aren't convinced that the polls are rigged, we present to you the following Podesta email, leaked earlier today, that conveniently spells out, in startling detail, exactly how to rig them.

    The New York Post ^ | October 11, 2016 | Michael Goodwin
    There is apparently nothing wrong with America that can’t be blamed on Donald Trump. He is single-handedly destroying the Republican Party, trashing presidential debates and spoiling the reputation of locker-room talk. And — breaking news alert! — Trump is even changing journalism. His habit of saying things that nobody ever said before is forcing reporters to unleash their partisan views instead of just giving the facts. Some of these charges may be true, but the one about Trump changing journalism is demonstrably false. All the more so because it comes from the editor of The New York Times, who happens...

    Democrats and the dominant media assure us that vote fraud doesn’t exist, so we certainly don’t need voter ID, and in fact it would be racist to demand as much proof of identity as is necessary to board an airplane or buy a drink. Nevertheless, a Democrat state representative in Connecticut was arrested for allegedly voting 19 times. ... State Rep. Christina “Tita” Ayala, D-Bridgeport, was arrested Friday on 19 voting fraud charges. Ayala, 31, is accused of voting in local and state elections in districts she did not live,

    Newsmakers, news reporters and (they hope) news influencers all in one In followup to Rob’s piece yesterday about the Detroit News’s embarrassing endorsement of the clueless Gary Johnson (and full disclosure, like Rob I too have served as a contributor to the News and sometimes still do), we now have today’s edition the Newspaper Endorsements As Big News Development storyline, which has become the media’s go-to topic of the week. USA Today breathlessly informs us that they too have made history or something: In the 34-year history of USA TODAY, the Editorial Board has never taken sides in the presidential...

    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...

    Smug liberal newspapers and tv networks have paid a heavy price for their criticism of Trump. Americans think of Trump as the underdog in this race and there’s nothing worse than piling on the underdog.

    Two weeks ago at the Republican National Convention (RNC) a grieving mother blasted Hillary Clinton for the debacle of the 2012 Benghazi attack. Last Thursday, at the Democratic National Convention (DNC), grieving parents gave a speech criticizing Donald Trump for his statements against Muslims. While all the grieving parents deserve sympathy, the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening and morning shows seemed to only care about the parents that showed up at the Democratic Convention. Khizr Khan and his wife Ghazla’s DNC appearance earned 55 minutes, 13 seconds of Big Three network coverage, nearly 50 times more than Pat...

    The advertisement read: "Store closing sale – Cedar Springs Christian Store – Clinton Highway location – All merchandise, fixtures, slat walls must go. Sale through August 13, phone 865.947.XXX." Mrs. McGinnis placed the ad on July 26. It was supposed to run on July 28. But when she opened up the newspaper – the ad was nowhere to be found. So Mrs. McGinnis phoned the newspaper and spoke with a classified ad employee. "She said our ad did not run because it contained an offensive word," she told me. "I asked what that offensive word was and she said the...

    The mainstream media have been hysterical this week in their response to Donald Trump’s revocation of the Washington Post’s campaign press credentials in response to coverage and headlines so unfair that the paper went back and changed them. Yet those same media outlets remained silent in 2008 when the Obama presidential campaign booted 3 major newspapers that had been writing unfavorably about the campaign off its press plane. Joe Concha of Mediaite remembers what happened 8 years ago, and contrasts the media response in the two instances: The year was 2008. The candidate had a big lead in the polls...

    Almost exactly a century ago at the great naval battle at Jutland, David Beatty said "There seems to be something wrong with our bloody ships today" after two of his battleships exploded under German gunnery and incompetent seamanship by his sailors. Well, there seems to be something wrong with our bloody newspapers today as well. The New York Times runs an editorial on "The NRA's Complicity in Terrorism," but the Orlando mass murderer Omar Mateen isn't a member of the NRA. He is a member of the Democratic Party, who voted for Obama twice, and worked as a subcontract security...
