    Onward.Locals.com ^ | February 17, 2024 | Catherine Engelbrecht
    On February 14th, a series of negative articles were published about True the Vote, with headlines like ‘True the Vote Tells Court It Has No Records To Back Up Georgia Fraud Claims, from the Atlanta Journal Constitution, ‘The Final Repudiation of 2000 Mules’, from the Washington Post, ‘Conservative Group Tells Judge It Has No Evidence To Back Its Claims of GA Ballot Stuffing’ from the Associated Press …. the list goes on and on. What you are seeing is an organized hit. How do we know? Synchronized publications across legacy media outlets with no outreach to True the Vote for...

    What should be the attitude of the media towards someone notable for being the purveyor of the biggest election 2020 fake news story? Shun them? That would be the correct attitude for such journalism malpractice. However, in the case of CNN it actually promoted such a person. Natasha Bertrand who was the main person behind promoting the fake news story in Politico that the New York Post report in October 2020 revealing the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop was a result of Russian disinformation.The CNN announcement on Tuesday of Bertrand's promotion on X (which everyone still calls Twitter) went over...
  • ROUNDUP: Leftist Publications Twist Themselves Into Pretzels Trying to Spin HOT Bidenflation Report

    NewsBusters ^ | 2/13/2024 | Joseph Vazquez
    Consumer prices jumped hotter-than-expected, and leftist media outlets were predictably fumbling over themselves trying to spin the bad news in any which way they could to protect the floundering Biden economy. The latest Bureau of Labor Statistics inflation report showed that consumer prices spiked 3.1 percent year-over year, with a 0.3 percent increase month-over-month, both exceeding expectations. CBS News even conceded the new hot numbers “complicat[ed]” the Federal Reserve’s decision to cut interest rates. The outlet also noted that higher prices “remain sticky.” The Dow Jones Industrial Average also tumbled over 400 points following the news. But that didn’t stop...
  • Establishment Media Defend Biden’s ‘Poor’ Memory

    The establishment media appeared to work overtime to defend President Joe Biden’s “deteriorated” memory against special counsel Robert Hur’s powerful analysis of Biden’s cognition. The defense is the media’s latest painstaking endeavor to provide cover for Biden, whom Hur detailed as not competent to stand trial for stealing classified documents. Biden is an “elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote in his report on Biden’s wrongdoing. Biden claimed in a press conference his memory is “fine.”

    Ok maybe it is just me and I am imagining things. Anyone who has been running searches on the internet for the last 20 years or so has probably noticed how difficult it has gotten to get concise and accurate results. Even boolean operators are no help. Lately I have noticed another thing. Every time I search for a news article almost all the returns I get are for links to a mainstream media article. Little or nothing from alternative sources. The other thing is that if you search for something even slightly untoward about almost any progressive or out...
  • Judge in Trump Civil Fraud Case Responds to Accusations of Bias in the Civil Fraud Case

    The Epoch Times ^ | 2/9/24 | Tom Ozimek
    The judge in former President Donald Trump’s $370 million civil lawsuit in New York—who, even before the trial began, ruled the former president liable for fraud—has sent a sharply worded email to President Trump’s attorneys defending his impartiality. Judge Arthur Engoron’s Feb. 8 email to Trump attorney Cliff Robert chides the lawyer for questioning the judge’s objectivity. “You and your co-counsel have been questioning my impartiality since the early days of this case, presumably because I sometimes rule against your clients,” Judge Engoron wrote. “That whole approach is getting old.” The insistence on his objectivity—and rebuke of Mr. Robert for...

    It was easily one of the notable moments of President Joe Biden's Thursday press conference in which he angrily denounced Special Counsel Robert Hur for highlighting his memory loss several times in his report. Yet Politico neglected to mention how Biden seemingly failed to recall the name of the church he got the rosary from to memorialize his deceased son Beau. Here's that highly embarrassing moment for Biden that shocked viewers yet Politico disingenuously left out of their reports of the press conference.

    A professor who sued UCLA after he was suspended in the wake of the George Floyd-Black Lives Matter riots after refusing a request to grade black students leniently will soon get his day in court. UCLA accounting lecturer Gordon Klein is demanding well over $19 million in damages in a lawsuit scheduled to go to trial March 4 in a Santa Monica courthouse. The two sides have engaged in legal wrangling since September 2021, when Klein first filed suit — including a failed attempt by UCLA’s lawyers to get the case tossed by summary judgment. The causes of action to...

    In a year marked by dwindling public trust in key institutions and heralded by the theme “Rebuilding Trust” at the World Economic Forum’s annual Davos assembly, Emma Tucker, the Wall Street Journal’s Editor in Chief, has called for a reevaluation of how traditional media operates. Recalling a point when the mainstream press was the chief adjudicator of information and facts, she highlighted its demise that came with the rise of alternative media platforms. Tucker, during a Davos panel supposedly dedicated to the preservation of truth, offered a lament for the era when the press held exclusive dominance over news and...

    Now that it's an election year, the media spotlight on the dangers of "misinformation" and "disinformation" is starting to shine bright, and oddly enough this kind of thing comes mostly from outlets that have ironically helped spread misinformation while running cover for the Democrats: Disinformation poses an unprecedented threat to democracy in the U.S. in 2024, according to researchers, technologists and political scientists. https://t.co/oWF8f2ypXD — NBC News (@NBCNews) January 18, 2024 "Disinformation" can of course often be defined as things that are true but aren't helpful to the Left's desired narrative. One of the most glaring recent examples of that...

    MSNBC and CNN refused to air former President Donald Trump’s Republican Iowa caucus victory speech Monday evening, while airing fellow candidates’ speeches. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow announced on-air that Trump had just began giving his speech but that the network decided not to air it because it did not want to knowingly broadcast “untrue things.” She said: At this point in the evening, the projected winner of the Iowa caucuses has just started giving his victory speech. We will keep an eye on that as it happens. We will let you know if there’s any news made in that speech if...

Nikki Haley on Monday and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday. ,,,,, Trump characterized his June interview with the Fox personality as “nasty,” The Hill reported. “Then...

    In their war on Trump, the press did the bidding of the Democratic Party, lost the story and lost their way. On January 5th, Trump will give a rally in Iowa. He’ll do what he’s done for seven years as a hunted man - reassure his supporters that there is nothing to fear but fear itself. Joe Biden, the President of the United States, will also give a speech that day and do what he has been doing since taking office: offer the people nothing but fear itself. Biden’s message? Be afraid. Be very, very afraid of your fellow citizens....
  • Fact Check: Nearly 100 Percent of Political Contributions From Fact Checkers Go to Democrats

    Nearly 100 percent of political donations from self-identified fact checkers—including those whose employers claim journalistic neutrality—go to Democrats, a Washington Free Beacon analysis of federal campaign finance disclosures found. The Free Beacon reviewed political donations over the past four election cycles from those who identified their occupation as "fact checker." $22,580 of the $22,683 in political donations that came from self-identified fact checkers during that time—a whopping 99.5 percent—went to Democrats and liberal groups. Only three of the fact checker donations made during that period went to Republicans. Top recipients include socialist Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, who during the seven-year...
