    Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar criticized a CNN report late Friday night which he claims mischaracterized the nature of his resignation from the Trump administration. “Contrary to the @CNN chyron, I am still here serving the American people at HHS,” Azar tweeted Friday night. CNN’s Anderson Cooper reported on air that Azar had resigned and “taken a swipe” at President Donald Trump by citing the Capitol riot in his resignation letter.

    Katie Couric appears to have gone far beyond her days as a straight news journalist and taken a sharp turn to the left. On Friday night, the 64-year-old former co-anchor of NBC's "Today" show and later anchor of the "CBS Evening News" openly expressed disdain for President Trump and the Republican Party during an appearance on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." During the show's panel discussion segment, host Bill Maher kicked off a conversation on the GOP lawmakers who overwhelmingly backed the president in Wednesday's second impeachment vote. Couric, who is set to guest host on "Jeopardy!," had no...

    It was a dream job for a 20-year-old: serving as a mid-level staffer on President Trump’s reelection campaign. But when Trump lost, Dawson Buchanan’s job ended. He landed on his feet, but then got canceled just because he served No. 45.

    Look, we knew going into things that a Biden election win would lead to a tectonic shift in the tone by the media, but this is becoming embarrassing. The surprise is not only how low they would stoop but how rapidly we have arrived at this stage. There are chapped lips already across the journalism gentry from all the throne-kissing taking place the past two months.Over at Politico they have begun a new series to shed light on the incoming president-elect, because after half a century of public office this man is a complete cipher, is the assumption. Dubbed ‘’Bidenology,’’...
  • CNN's Chuck Todd melts down on air when his bias is challenged, then makes it worse: A bully has more than met his match, and – like most bullies -- has disgraced himself when challenged

    A bully has more than met his match, and – like most bullies -- has disgraced himself when challenged. Chuck Todd is a bully in possession of a huge weapon, NBC News, of which he is political director, and his perch as host of its premier program, Meet the Press. But all it took was a challenge from normally mild-mannered Senator Ron Johnson to have Todd shaking in his chair, his voice cracking, and abruptly ending his interview on Meet the Press.Todd must have been expecting another Republican patsy when he framed the interview (complete video embedded below) as about...
  • CNN’s Jim Acosta Mocked Over Claim That Covering Trump Was a Non-Stop National Emergency, Admits He Won’t Be as Hard on Biden

    CNN reporter and self-styled resistance warrior Jim Acosta said covering President Trump “might merit hazard pay” and suggested his time doing so was a “non-stop national emergency.” Acosta, who frequently makes the story about him as he desperately seeks attention from his left-wing media peers, made the comments for a piece published by The Atlantic. The CNN reporter insists his “on-air indignation” for the President was real and warranted due to his treatment of the media, before admitting he had no intentions of being so combative with President-elect Joe Biden. ... Acosta went on to allege Trump’s treatment of the...

    CNN‘s Jim Acosta and Jake Tapper both predicted in new interviews that the media will change under the incoming Biden administration, arguing that the new president will likely provide for less combative coverage. Mr. Acosta, the network’s chief White House correspondent who has repeatedly made headlines for his confrontations with President Trump and even wrote a book about his contentious relationship with the current administration, told The Atlantic in a piece published Tuesday that he “couldn’t stomach” the president’s attacks on the press and his “fake news” tagline. “The drama has made him famous,” The Atlantic’s McKay Coppins reports, “but...

    WASHINGTON - The video message that plunged Washington into chaos was filmed in secret. President Donald Trump stood in the White House’s Diplomatic Reception Room, holiday garland and gleaming ornaments draped on the fireplace behind him, and spoke into the camera not to deliver warm Christmas wishes, but to threaten to detonate Congress’ $900 billion COVID-19 relief and year-end package. The video was released without warning Tuesday night, its recording orchestrated by White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and kept from all but a handful of aides. Few Republicans or even White House staffers knew Wednesday what Trump planned...

    It should be no surprise as 2020 comes to an end that corporate media covered a horrific year as horrifically as expected. From its laudatory coverage of the presidential impeachment it encouraged to the blatant gaslighting about this year’s riotous protests, the nation’s least accountable institution performed as usual, only escalating its protection of Democrats and leftism, and shameless manipulation of the facts while demanding total power to determine them.

    The New York Times has retracted the core of its hit 2018 podcast series Caliphate after an internal review found the paper failed to heed red flags indicating that the man it relied upon for its narrative about the allure of terrorism could not be trusted to tell the truth. The newspaper has reassigned its star terrorism reporter, Rukmini Callimachi, who hosted the series. Caliphate relayed the tale about the radicalization of a young Canadian who went to Syria, joined the Islamic State and became an executioner for the extremist group before escaping its hold. Canadian authorities this fall accused...

    Tax cuts for the wealthy have long drawn support from conservative lawmakers and economists who argue that such measures will "trickle down" and eventually boost jobs and incomes for everyone else. But a new study from the London School of Economics says 50 years of such tax cuts have only helped one group - the rich.The new paper, examines 18 developed countries - from Australia to the United States - over a 50-year period from 1965 to 2015. The study compared countries that passed tax cuts in a specific year, such as the U.S. in 1982 when President Ronald Reagan...

    WASHINGTON - Millions of Americans are watching with anticipation as the first coronavirus vaccines are administered, but doctors advising President-elect Joe Biden are raising concerns that the timeline for widespread distribution may be longer than anticipated. The team of medical professionals advising Biden are warning internally that the program he will inherit from outgoing President Donald Trump may not live up to expectations of fast and widespread relief. Instead of mass distribution to the general population in the coming months, pandemic-fatigued Americans may find approval delays, distribution disruptions and insufficient quantities. Getting the vaccine to every American who wants to...

    Would you consider yourself a reporter at this point or is that more of a former job description?' one critic asked White House correspondent April Ryan raised eyebrows on Friday after she appeared to endorse the idea that journalists shouldn't reveal contradictions between President-elect Joe Biden's public and private statements. On Thursday, Ryan appeared to express disapproval that a recording of Biden claiming "defund the police" rhetoric hurt down-ballot Democrats in last month's elections was leaked to The Intercept, which duly reported on it. "I asked an incoming White House source was the meeting contentious with civil rights leader and...

    Witness the reaction of nearly all mainstream media to The Post’s bombshell reporting on the Hunter Biden Files, which recently garnered yet another boost of verification — this one courtesy of the illustrious vice-presidential son himself, who revealed that federal authorities are probing his “taxes. ”The probe appears to be much wider than that, in fact. Politico and the Times report that investigators across several jurisdictions are looking into potential money-laundering involving Hunter’s foreign ties and his finances generally. CNN says “at least one of the matters investigators have examined is a 2017 gift of a 2.8-carat diamond that Hunter...

    WASHINGTON - The 2020 presidential election is over. But President Donald Trump’s baseless efforts to undermine it, and the consequences of those undemocratic actions, will linger in America for far longer. It is increasingly clear that there is no fact, no piece of evidence and no court ruling that will dissuade Trump from trying to mislead Americans about President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. And Trump has hardly been alone in that effort; numerous Republicans have stood with him or stood by silently, including 126 GOP members of the House who backed a bid to get the Supreme Court to invalidate Biden’s...

    Hey, did you ever find out about a particular thing that was absolutely, undisputedly, 100% true? Like, no doubt at all? You had ironclad proof and everything? And after you found out about it, did you then run into somebody else who simply refused to believe it, no matter the evidence? Sure, we all know somebody like that. In 2020, it’s practically a hobby. But that’s not a good thing when the person who refuses to acknowledge facts and evidence is supposed to be a journalist. For instance, take Hunter Biden’s laptop. Please! Take it, because CNN and the NYT...

    The Trump presidency is now destined to end with falsehoods -- a blizzard of baseless accusations about the election that he lost, as distilled into a final plea to the Supreme Court. President Donald Trump's ask is for the nation's highest court to overturn the results of the election. As unlikely as he is to succeed, that breathtaking statement doesn't even encapsulate the principles at stake that will matter long after President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated. Some 106 House Republicans -- more than half the GOP conference -- are backing the president's effort to get the Supreme Court to step...

    ATLANTA - Sen. Kelly Loeffler repeatedly refused to acknowledge that President Donald Trump lost reelection in November, as she debated her Democratic opponent, Rev. Raphael Warnock, ahead of twin Georgia runoff elections that will determine which party controls the Senate. Asked specifically about President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in Georgia and whether she agreed with Trump’s unfounded accusations of widespread voter fraud, Loeffler sidestepped the matter during a debate Sunday. Although Trump has lost round after round of court challenges in Georgia and other battleground states, and Georgia’s results were certified last month, Loeffler described Trump as merely pursuing “every legal...

    Slanted is the third book by Sharyl Attkisson, and as with her other two, it is a refreshing read. It is nice to know that there are still independent journalists who put fact over opinion, and she is one of those. To no one's surprise, she talks about the shift in the news, from a focus on reporting the facts to more on trying to push a narrative on the American people. Attkisson begins Slanted by talking about George Orwell's book 1984. Attkisson tells the story of "the hapless protagonist, Winston Smith, a government records editor at the Ministry of...

    James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released audio Wednesday of a purported conference call in October in which CNN president Jeff Zucker appears to tell editors to spike the story of Hunter Biden’s laptop. On October 14, the New York Post published emails found on a laptop apparently belonging to Hunter Biden, suggesting that his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, had met in 2015 with one of Hunter’s business associates from the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. That directly contradicted Joe Biden’s claims on the campaign trail never to have done so: “I have never discussed, with my son or my brother or...
