  • TV Networks Did A Really Crap Job Reporting On Climate Change Last Year

    The Huffington Post ^ | February 13, 2018 | By Nick Visser
    Many of America’s leading television networks did a poor job of covering climate change last year, even as the newly minted Trump administration worked to unravel regulations meant to tackle the phenomenon and the U.S. was pummeled by a series of record-breaking natural disasters, according to a new report. The group Media Matters for America analyzed climate change coverage on major broadcasters’ nightly news programs and Sunday morning political shows - including those on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News and PBS - over the course of 2017. While a total of 260 minutes were devoted to climate change during the...
  • CNN’s Camerota Confronts Literal Nazi Running For GOP Congressional Seat in Insane Interview

    CNN’s Alisyn Camerota confronted a literal Nazi who is currently poised to nab the GOP nomination for Congress — and the interview predictably derailed, as the Nazi ranted about “the Jewish media.” Arthur Jones, a holocaust denier, anti-Semite, white supremacist and all around lunatic is set to become the Republican nominee for an Illinois congressional seat near Chicago — and appeared on CNN to defend himself. “It is shocking to hear how vocally and unapologetically racist you are,” Camerota opened the interview. “Are you a Nazi?” Jones contended that he does not call himself a Nazi, but an “American patriot...
  • CDC director says there are ‘no banned words’ at the agency

    U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald on Sunday addressed a report that President Donald Trump’s administration had banned the CDC from using seven words or phrases in next year’s budget documents. The terms are “fetus,” “transgender,” “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “evidence-based” and “science-based,” according to a story first reported on Friday in The Washington Post. But Fitzgerald said in a series of tweets on Sunday said there are “no banned words,” while emphasizing the agency’s commitment to data-driven science.
  • Attitude Magazine Claims Straight Men Often ‘Kiss and Cuddle’ With Other Guys

    Are you a straight man who likes women? Do you kiss and cuddle with your male friends just for funsies? No? Well apparently, you’re the weirdo. Because according to Attitude Magazine, it is totally normal – common, even – for straight men to canoodle with their straight male friends. To the confusion of straight men and people of logic everywhere, Attitude ran a befuddling article entitled: "New Study Finds Straight Men in Bromances Often Kiss and Cuddle." (For those unfamiliar, a "bromance" is a slang term for a close friendship between two heterosexual guys.) Attitude claims:

    The Daily Caller ^ | 11/15/2017 | Amber Athey
    A Democrat running for Congress was arrested on a stalking charge last week, but the media has refused to give the story any coverage. David Alcon, who is running for an open congressional seat in New Mexico, was arrested this past Friday on a felony stalking charge after a woman accused him of sending her frightening and lewd text messages and showing up at her home. Alcon was previously convicted of stalking his ex-girlfriend in 2007 and was described as “infatuated” and “clearly obsessed” by the judge in the case. The story has been met with silence from a number...

    Talk about not letting go. While some liberals are gathering to “scream helplessly at the sky” for the one year anniversary of the 2016 presidential election, the journalists at the Washington Post are busy writing the equivalent of fan fiction, an “alternate timeline” imagining "what if Hillary had won." Amazingly, the Post published TWO "alternate histories" in 24 hours. Writers Ben Terris, Dan Zak, Monica Hesse and Amy Argetsinger (it took four people to write this?) on Thursday began by rewriting, “What if Election Day 2016 had gone a little differently? What if a freak snowstorm across the Rust Belt...

    On Friday, Yasmin Seweid, 19, the Muslim college student at Baruch College who lied to police, telling them she had been harassed on the New York subway by white men who attempted to seize her hijab, pleaded guilty to falsely reporting an incident and disorderly conduct. Seweid had claimed the incident occurred on the No. 6 train on Dec. 1, 2016. She told The New York Daily News that three drunk white men screamed “Donald Trump!” and hurled anti-Islam slurs at her, then tried to rip her hijab off of her head. She stated, “I heard them say something very...

    MRC NewsBusters ^ | 09/06/2017 | Curtis Houck
    On Wednesday, NBCNews.com published an Associated Press dispatch on the bribery trial of Democratic Senator Bob Menendez (N.J.), but there was one huge problem in that Menendez was labeled a Republican. Translation? NBC News saw no reason to engage in basic proofreading or got caught red-handed in the act of liberal bias. The unauthored post sat for well over two hours before being changed. NBCNews.com offered a correction at the bottom of the story: “CORRECTION (Sept. 6, 2017, 5:35 p.m.): An earlier version of this article misstated the party affiliation of Menendez. He is a Democrat, not a Republican.” Seeing...

    Melania Trump is the kind of woman who travels to a flood-ravaged state in a pair of black snakeskin stilettos. Heels this high are not practical. But Trump is not the kind of woman who has to be practical. Heels this high are not comfortable. Comfort is not the point. Neither hers nor yours. Trump is the kind of woman who knows that when she walks from the White House to Marine One there will be photographers, and so she will dress accordingly. [Snip] ... Trump is the kind of woman who refuses to pretend that her feet will, at...

    The media's hypocrisy concerning foreign influence in U.S. elections is staggering. Find me a media commentator who isn’t turning him or herself upside down trying to explain why Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with the Russians could potentially lead to the president’s removal from office, and I’ll show you someone who either isn’t on the air or is just not trying very hard. Nobody seemed to care when the Russians used political influence to buy up U.S. uranium stocks under Obama. Let’s see if they care the Chinese may now be trying to buy up significant quantities of U.S. copper using...

    Hillary Clinton sits behind the resolute desk in the Oval Office, pulling out a large blue binder and a jar of hot peppers—her typical snack as the leader of the free world. It’s 9:30 p.m., and madam president spent the day successfully rallying House Republicans and Democrats behind a health care bill that will improve upon her predecessor’s landmark initiative, the Affordable Care Act. The bill passed an hour ago, but she isn’t anywhere near done fulfilling her duties to the American people. “I won’t be taking any more calls,” Clinton tells senior adviser Huma Abedin, who is walking toward...
  • Vanity Fair: Trump Should Be Impeached for Merely Being 'Offensive'

    Remember the important qualifier for officials to be subject to impeachment? High crimes and misdemeanors? According to Vanity Fair contributor, T.A. Frank, perhaps we should add "offensive" to the reasons for impeachment. Frank is honest in admitting in his July 6 article that, so far, the Trump-Russia collusion theory has turned into a big nothingburger. He also suggests that there might not ever be any impeachable  high crimes and misdemeanors as a basis to remove President Donald Trump from office. So what to do? What to do? Simple. Impeach Trump for being merely "offensive."  Frank make his case in IS...
  • Writer for WaPo Attempts to Justify Shooting of Elected Representatives, #RadicalLeft

    Malcolm Harris, a writer for the Washington Post, attempted to justify mass-shootings targeting elected representatives following Wednesday’s radical left-wing attack. His first tweet on the shooting of Congressman Scalise read: “Some shot Steve Scalise?” with a number of eye emojis following it. Shortly thereafter, Harris tweeted the following in an attempt to justify today’s shooting that left a representative in critical condition making a reference to the repeal of Obamacare: “If the shooter has a serious health condition then is taking potshots at the GOP house leadership considered self defense?” Harris went on since to further deepen the hole he’s...

    Several media outlets are reporting the world’s largest repository of seeds, acting as a “backstop” against global catastrophe, has been compromised by global warming. Well, the news turned out to be little more than media hype. Here’s why. The left-leaning Guardian was the first to report the Global Seed Vault located in the Svalbard archipelago was “breached after global warming produced extraordinary temperatures over the winter, sending meltwater gushing into the entrance tunnel.” Vox and Wired echoed the Guardian’s reporting. Vox reported the Norwegian designers of the seed vault that was supposed to operate without human assistance for “eternity” had...

    Just tuned in to ABC This Morning. Basically it repeats as a lead story the Washington comPost garbage. Very very little balance. For instance, while stating the DOJ says Comey did NOT ask for additional money for Russia investigation, a giant graphic on the screen says COMEY ASKED FOR ADDITIONAL MONEY. And they EXCITEDLY reported the boos rained upon Betsy DeVos by some bigots at a university in Florida AND how a New Jersey Republican was screamed at by a snowflake at a town hall. By the way, diversity at ABC This Morning has yet to include a white male....

    FBI Director James B. Comey overstated key findings involving the Hillary Clinton email investigation during testimony to Congress last week, according to people close to the inquiry. In defending the probe, Comey offered seemingly new details to underscore the seriousness of the situation FBI agents faced last fall when they discovered thousands of Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s emails on the computer of her husband, Anthony Weiner. “Somehow, her emails were being forwarded to Anthony Weiner, including classified information,” Comey said, adding later, “His then-spouse Huma Abedin appears to have had a regular practice of forwarding emails to him for him...

    Fox News anchor Shepard Smith is speaking out about coming out. Smith, managing editor of the conservative network, revealed last month that while he always knew he was "different" than his peers growing up in Mississippi, he feels he never had the need to out himself - because he was never in. "Someone asked me if Roger Ailes had been abusive to me, and I said, 'No. He was always good to me," and that was the truth," Smith said during a talk at the University of Mississppi's Meek School of Journalism, where he was once a student. "And when...

    At the Newseum gift shop, the top-selling items don’t pertain to freedom of speech or the press. Instead, what sells is anything associated with the man who has dubbed the media “the enemy of the people.” President Donald J. Trump. It’s a similar situation at the National Archives, where employees struggle to keep the shelves stocked with Trump shot glasses. “We sold out of them,” said Angela Catigano, director of retail and e-commerce at the National Archives Foundation. “The eighth-grade boys seem to love those.” Trump’s election presents Washington’s many museums and monuments with an attractive business opportunity.

    Two Pittsburgh men will spend up to one year in jail for assaulting police officers during an anti-Donald Trump protest in Downtown Pittsburgh last year , according to District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr.'s Office. Kennon Hooper, 32, of West Oakland, and Maxwell Yearick, 30, of Perry South, were each sentenced to three to 12 months in jail for their part in the April 13 protests that injured several officers. Both men pleaded guilty to one count each of simple assault and resisting arrest.
