    All Israel ^ | 11/28/23 | Tom Tradup
    Israel is justifiably proud of being the only democracy in the Middle East and – as such – championing freedoms rarely seen in its regional neighbors. Among these are the right to vote, freedom to worship as one pleases, and the operation of media outlets that are free to inform citizens with honest, factual news reporting…never more important than in times of war. Unfortunately, Israel is being sandbagged by a familiar purveyor of biased coverage: The Associated Press. Over the years in my profession as a broadcast journalist, I have personally documented countless examples of the AP’s bias, in which...

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) questioned a reporter on Thursday until she admitted evidence exists against President Joe Biden for Republicans to launch an impeachment inquiry into him. While answering questions in the Capitol Building, Associated Press (AP) reporter Farnoush Amiri asked McCarthy about the argument that no evidence exists to show Joe Biden committed an impeachable offense.

    The Daily Caller ^ | September 7, 2023 | Larry Behrens
    If you’re a “journalist,” time is running out so you better act now! Later in September, the Columbia Journalism School is hosting a critical event on climate news coverage. For those in the know, the Columbia Journalism School is one of the institutions leftist journalists strive to impress. It’s like a gated country club for the liberal elite who are hosting a big party for reporters to learn how to write on climate. They call it a “blueprint for media transformation,” but let’s call it what it really is: reporter re-education camp. They already control the news you see, or...
  • Wealthy Left-Wing Groups Corruptly Fund The Associated Press to Publish Stories Aligned with Their Propaganda Agendas

    Surprise surprise surprise: The Associated Press, the country's top wire service, is now bankrolled in part by millions of dollars from left-wing foundations, including one founded by "1619 Project" author Nikole Hannah-Jones. The news organization last year announced a series of "partnerships" to subsidize reporters covering climate change, race, and democracy. A review of the donor roster shows that the vast majority fund left-wing political causes, while none are supporters of conservative initiatives. The Ida B. Wells Society, founded by "1619 Project" lightning rod Hannah-Jones, has teamed up with filmmaker Steven Spielberg's Hearthland Foundation, for example, to foster "more inclusive...
  • Trump cancels press conference on election fraud claims, citing attorneys’ advice

    Former President Donald Trump now says he won’t be holding a news conference next week to unveil what he claims is new “evidence” of fraud in Georgia’s 2020 presidential election — even though no fraud has ever been substantiated — citing the advice of lawyers as he prepares to face trial in two criminal cases that stem from his election lies. No compelling evidence of the wide-scale fraud Trump alleges has emerged in the two-and-a-half years since the election in Georgia or elsewhere, despite Trump’s baseless claims. Republican officials in the state have long said he lost fairly and three...

    A new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll out Wednesday found that former President Donald Trump is increasing his grip on the Republican Party but still distancing a majority of the American electorate. The poll found that 63% of Republican voters “now say they want the former president to run again,” noted an AP summary. The strong support from inside the GOP marked an increase from the same poll last April, which showed 55% of Republican voters wanted to see Trump on the party’s ticket again. “Seven in 10 Republicans now have a favorable opinion of Trump, an...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley released an unclassified document Thursday that Republicans claim is significant in their investigation of Hunter Biden as they delve into the financial affairs of the president and his son, and revive previously debunked claims of wrongdoing. While lawmakers on the Oversight Committee have already been able to partly review the information, this is the first time the full document — which contains raw, unverified information — is being made public. Called an FD-1023 form, it involves claims a confidential informant made in 2020 about Hunter Biden’s alleged business dealings when he served on...

    AP ^ | July 13, 2023
    Theatergoers in select cities will soon be able to watch “20 Days in Mariupol,” the visceral documentary on Russia’s early assault on the Ukrainian city. The 94-minute film is a joint production by The Associated Press and PBS “Frontline” and has been met with critical acclaim and an audience award at the Sundance Film Festival. AP journalist Mstyslav Chernov directed the movie from 30 hours of footage he and other AP journalists shot in Mariupol in the opening days of the war. Chernov and AP colleagues Evgeniy Maloletka, a photographer, and producer Vasilisa Stepanenko were the last international journalists in...

    A fake AP ‘fact-checker’ is hiding the real threat a California mental health services bill poses to parents and their vulnerable children.On April 4, Karena Phan of the Associated Press wrote an article attempting to debunk “social media distortion” of Assembly Bill 665, which was introduced as, “Minors: consent to mental health services.” This bill, authored by Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo and state Sen. Scott Wiener, is making its way through the California Legislature. Phan contends that hysterics on social media claim the bill “would allow school mental health professionals to remove minors [12 and older] from the custody of their...

    The Associated Press has been running wild with leftist climate change propaganda while being paid millions by eco-extremist organizations. And yet AP still has the audacity to pretend it's engaging in objective reporting. MRC Business analysts found that from Feb. 15, 2022 through Feb. 15, 2023, The Associated Press (AP) pushed climate change alarmism and promoted woke environmental, social, governance (ESG) efforts across 64 climate-related stories after the legacy outlet received an $8 million grant from leftist nonprofit organizations like the Rockefeller Foundation, Quadrivium (the activist organization of News Corp. Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch’s estranged son and climate activist James...

    We’ve been keeping an eye on the Associated Press recently, as the press agency seems to have a crush on transgender state legislator Zooey Zephyr, writing headlines about how she’s been misgendered and silenced. She’s a hero. We hadn’t seen the Associated Press’ tweet about the release of the Durham Report, but thanks to James Woods it slipped into our timeline. The AP’s take? The report fell short of Donald Trump’s prediction it would uncover the “crime of the century.” Not, it only proved what we all already knew; that the Russian collusion hoax was just that, and that everyone...

    You may have noticed an interesting trend with the Associated Press recently. For a while there, they were still at least kinda-sorta trying to pretend that they were a news organization, and even though they weren’t really fooling us, they did try to keep up appearances. But then Democratic Montana State Rep. Zooey Zephyr happened, and the AP threw any last semblance of journalism out the window. Their job was no longer to cover the news, but to advocate for radical trans activists. And now, they don’t even need Zephyr as an excuse to do it. Take a look at...

    Apparently Humpty Dumpty has taken a senior editing position with the Associated Press. Lewis Carroll’s character from Alice in Wonderland famously intoned, “When I use a word… it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less,” and the giant propaganda agency feels the same way. Writing in Human Events, Libby Emmons calls out the AP for redefining the word “insurrection” to apply to the January 6, 2021 demonstrators, and then, when that definition was applied by others to the left wing demonstrations that disrupted the Tennessee and Montana state legislatures, re-redefining the term so as...

    An overwhelming majority of Americans do not wish Donald Trump to make a third run for the White House in 2024, according to new polling data.The poll, carried out by the Associated Press with NORC at the University of Chicago between April 13-17, found that while 70 percent of people do not wish Trump to run, only 55 percent of Republicans would like to see him run for re-election.“Views of possible 2024 presidential candidates are highly partisan,” the pollsters noted. “Among Democrats, 81% say they have a favorable opinion of Joe Biden. Among Republicans, 68% have a favorable view of...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Over the past 11 months, someone created thousands of fake, automated Twitter accounts — perhaps hundreds of thousands of them — to offer a stream of praise for Donald Trump. Besides posting adoring words about the former president, the fake accounts ridiculed Trump’s critics from both parties and attacked Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor and U.N. ambassador who is challenging her onetime boss for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination. When it came to Ron DeSantis, the bots aggressively suggested that the Florida governor couldn’t beat Trump, but would be a great running mate. As Republican...
