    According to a poll conducted by Politico and Morning Consult, nearly half of American voters distrust the media’s reporting on President Trump and his administration. Not only that, but they believe journalists deliberately fabricate stories about Trump. More surprising, it’s not just Republicans or Trump supporters who believe this.
  • Politico Dumps Embarrassing Pile of Corrections on Puerto Rico Article

    The corrections paragraph to a Politico story that is so long that it calls the entire article into question. One wonders why Politico even allowed the October 1 story by Puerto Rican freelance journalist Alejandra Rosa to remain since such a large corrections section casts huge aspersions upon the veracity of the rest of her story still remaining. Will there be yet more corrections that will cause the already large corrections section to grow further and eat up the rest of the story? Before we look at Rosa's heavily corrected story about financial pressures on Puerto Rico even before Hurricane...

    President Trump says he doesn't know much about Roy Moore, and seemed to unwittingly emphasize the point by twice referring to the Republican front-runner for Senate in Alabama as "Ray" during a radio interview on the "Rick and Bubba Show" ahead of Tuesday's primary, per Politico. Moore is up against incumbent Sen. Luther Strange, who Trump has publicly endorsed. "Luther Strange is going to be a great senator. He loves Alabama, he loves the states and he loves the country," Trump said Monday, according to "He will absolutely win against the Democrat. Ray will have a hard time. If...

    Matt Wuerker, the leftwing editorial cartoonist for the leftwingPolitico, was met with almost universal condemnation Wednesday for a ‘toon that not only mocked the victims of Hurricane Harvey, but mocked the victims in most desperate need, those requiring rescue from rooftops. Utilizing that form of bigotry and hate that will always be acceptable among the Beautiful People, Wuerker managed to lump all Texans into a single GodTardingRacistSecessionist. Ugly, ugly stuff. [...] In summation… In the middle of a historic hurricane devastating God knows how many thousands and thousands of Texans, the cultural supremacists at Politico are stereotyping those very same Texans in the...

    In an unbelievably classless move, Politco tweeted out the latest political cartoon from illustrator Matt Wuerker that actually mocked Texas victims of Hurricane Harvey, portraying them as Confederate sympathizers who want to secede from the United States. In addition, the Politico cartoonist thought it appropriate to deride people’s faith as well, with a man dressed in a shirt with a Confederate flag being rescued from his rooftop and declaring: “Angels! Sent by God!” A Coast Guard pilot was shown correcting him: “Er, actually Coast Guard...Sent by the government.”

While I was just going through that riff on the fake news from the New York Times earlier this week on the supposedly shocking report that was only recently released that global warming is already happening… We find out that report’s been public. You could access it on the Web six months ago. Nothing was “suppressed.” Nothing was “secret.” Politico, with a breaking news alert to their subscribers: “2016 Broke Global Temperature Records Again.” It was “the warmest year on the earth’s surface in nearly 150 years of measuring, scientists said today, in an international report...

    Although the liberal media is purposely avoiding the fact that the Trump-Russia collusion investigation is, as CNN's Van Jones noted in a candid moment, a big "nothing burger" most of the public has already reached that conclusion. Thus far Bob Mueller and his team of Democrat-donating investigators have only come up with a quickie inconclusive 20 minute meeting between Donald Trump, Jr. and a Russian lawyer. Hardly time for "collusion." This might explain why they are now on a fishing expedition for matters completely unrelated to Russia. Meanwhile the public appears to be fed up with the Russia investigation to nowhere...

    After spending 72 hours looking specifically at the motives of those pushing almost identical paragraphs including the catchphrases: “holdovers”, “purging loyalists“, “unfettered access” and “Caroline Glick“; it comes as no surprise to hear the administration perceives the anti-McMasters crowd as having “jumped the shark”… “reached too far”, and “exposed their agenda” etc. Ironically HR McMaster appears to be safer than ever in his position as National Security Adviser not specifically because of anything he has done, but as an actual outcome of the piranha approach taken by his detractors. The severity of his opposition’s group-think actually exposed the common denominator....

    The Daily Caller News Foundation has compiled a weekly list of examples exposing bias in Politico’s daily emailed newsletter that briefs subscribers on the most important news of the day. This week, Politico Playbook’s writers, Anna Palmer, Jake Sherman, and Daniel Lippman took issue with White House Communications Director Athony Scaramucci’s “anonymous” source, declared President Donald Trump’s senior advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner guilty, and lamented Trump’s inability to fulfill all his campaign promises in his first six months in office. Below are the most egregious examples from the past week: 1. Seems like media skepticism of anonymous sources only...

    Remember the mighty Coffee Party which at one time had grown to a total of 200,000 members? Oh, you wonder where that laughably inflated figure comes from? Well, it was made up by Steve Tuttle of Newsweek (now with fewer readers than the real members of the Coffee Party). The purpose of that very obvious fake news was to hype a leftwing version of the Tea Party back in 2010 despite the fact that it numbered in the dozens at most. Well, the latest fake news comes to us by way of Politico in which writer John Savage is hyping...

    NewsBusters ^ | June 19, 2017 | P.J. Gladnick
    Whenever the mainstream media awards a participation trophy to the loser of an election, it is sure bet they are awarding it to a Democrat. Such was the case with the June 17 Politico which awarded a participation trophy to Jason Kander who lost the 2016 U.S. Senate race from Missouri. No matter. As far as Politico is concerned he was really a winner as you can see from their title, How Jason Kander Won by Losing. What makes this article particularly amusing is how far overboard Politico writer Edward-Isaac Dovere goes in hyping the future political career of Kander....

    Former House Speaker John Boehner said earlier this week that Donald Trump’s presidency has been “a complete disaster” thus far and that the billionaire-turned-commander-in-chief is still learning on the job. “Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a complete disaster,” Boehner said during a question-and-answer session at a conference in Houston on Wednesday. “He’s still learning how to be president.” ~snip~ He seemed content with his life as a retired politician and was quick to shoot down any talk of a future presidential bid. “I wake up every day, drink my morning coffee and say hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah,” Boehner...

    If This Politico Story Is True, the President Needs New Advisers May 11, 2017 RUSH: The Politico today… By the way, you need to be reading all of these and watching all these stories with more doubt and disbelief than you have ever mustered. As you read, or any time you see “anonymous source said,” you must disbelieve it. The evidence is much greater and much of this is made up than that it is legitimate and real. You must remember that media isn’t media. You are not reading “the news.” You are being inculcated. You’re being propagandized. You are...

    White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slammed Politico on Friday as not being trustworthy. During the White House daily press briefing, a reporter asked Sanders about a Politico story on the Trump administration planning on gutting the Office of National Drug Control Policy's budget. Sanders answered by giving the reporter some advice. "Look, my first piece of advice would never be to use Politico for a source for your story," Sanders said. Sanders then said she could not comment on the budget right now because it is just a draft. No reporters asked Sanders about her comments on...
  • Weekly Standard Mocks Politico Gush Over the Genius Behind 'Clinton's Towering Fiasco'

    The May 1 issue of The Weekly Standard led its “Scrapbook” section with a nice dig at Politico for a story last September touting the strategic genius who mined data for the er, President Hillary campaign. The headline was "Clinton's Towering Fiasco." Elan Kriegel’s “erasable marker scribblings reminiscent of A Beautiful Mind that amount to some of the earliest drafts of the computer algorithms that underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign’s most important strategic decisions.” They didn’t mock Politico’s Shane Goldmacher by name, but did enjoy the sound of his beautiful-mind gush back then: To understand Kriegel’s role is...

    The newly-named CEO of Politico has a long history of donating large sums to Democratic candidates and causes and served under former President Bill Clinton. Politico announced Tuesday that investment banker Patrick Steel would be replacing previous CEO and co-founder Jim VandeHei, who departed in 2016. Politico‘s owner, Robert Allbritton, and editor in chief, John Harris, informed the staff in a memo before making a public statement. "Patrick understands that the heart and soul—the power— of Politico rests on great, indispensable journalism, and the global impact of our reporting," they wrote. "Patrick's arrival allows us to engage with the big...

    Please Senator Warner! Please find our Great Pumpkin and we will reward you with a presidential nomination! The Great Pumpkin in this case is proof of collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia to somehow change the 2016 election results. After weeks of fervent searching by both the Democrats and their mainstream media allies, no proof of their Great Pumpkin which could bring electoral salvation has been found. They still continue to search with the spotlight now on Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, who is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee. The reward for finding their Great...

    After Donald Trump wrapped up his first speech to Congress and worked his way through the crowd, he lingered on his handshake with Anthony Kennedy, the 80-year-old Supreme Court justice. The boom mics picked up their seemingly private conversation. “Say hello to your boy,” Trump said, “Special guy.” “Your kids have been very nice to him,” Kennedy replied. “Well,” Trump said, “they love him, and they love him in New York.” While the White House is focused this week on shepherding Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, through the Senate confirmation process, the president and his team are obsessed...

    Try anything Let me acknowledge upfront: I don’t know who the Worst Web Site in the World’s source is. I’m assuming it was Democrats because who the hell else would it be? And we’ve seen these Bolshevik plagiarism accusations before, where people take the most nitpicky, technical, extreme definition of what might be called plagiarism - don’t even achieve that standard - and yet toss the charge around anyway just so politicians will have an excuse to declare themselves “troubled” and cast aspersions on the nominee and his supporters.
