  • Politifact is dishonest. Browsing their site, I have concluded that while they may think they are fair, they don’t come close.

    Politifact is biased. All news sources are biased to some extent (I make no bones about being a conservative, although do my best to stick to the facts), although some are better about trying to be open and fair than others.Politifact? Browsing their site I have concluded that while they may think they are fair, they don’t come close.The first “fact check is a doozy, since their “Truth o Meter” and the content of their “analysis” contradict each other. They rate a claim “false” while their explanation for coming to the conclusion shows that it is, in fact, true. They...
  • WHAT? NYT Editorial Board Member Claims ‘Real Debt Crisis’ Is ‘Low Taxes'

    A New York Times editorial board member actually claimed that Americans should be concerned about their taxes being too low when thinking about the $31 trillion-plus national debt crisis. Yes, you read that correctly. Binyamin Appelbaum, The Times editorial board’s so-called “lead writer on economics and business” argued that the government is actually a victim in the debt crisis that it created. “The Real Debt Crisis Is Low Taxes,” read the headline of his nonsensical Jan. 25 op-ed. It seems he realized just how stupid his headline sounded as The Times later changed the headline entirely, making it appear more...

    Bongino Report Content Manager Matt Palumbo peeled back “the layers” of leftist billionaire George Soros’ global political and media influence during a recent interview with The Epoch Times. Palumbo noted that his book —The Man Behind the Curtain: Inside The Secret Network of George Soros — includes a “list of publications that are linked to Soros.” Palumbo told The Epoch Times that Soros' well funded media empire gives him connections with some of the biggest names in journalism, which in turn allows him to be shielded him from serious journalistic scrutiny. In addition, Soros' influence encourages media figures to call...

    A new MRC Business investigation revealed that George Soros — a leftist 93-year-old billionaire — despite his age, just can’t stop his attempts to destroy America by funding many the most influential figures in mass media via donations to leftist groups affiliated with them. “The over $32 billion that leftist billionaire George Soros poured into his organizations to spread his radical ‘open society’ agenda on abortion, Marxist economics, anti-Americanism, defunding the police, environmental extremism and LGBT fanaticism around the globe has paid dividends,” MRC Business analysts Joseph Vazquez and Daniel Schneider wrote.

    On Sunday's Meet the Press on NBC, host Chuck Todd made the laughable claim that he’s a journalist who “deals in facts” during a heated back and forth with Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson on the congressional investigation into President Joe Biden’s drug addict criminal son Hunter Biden. Anyone familiar with Todd’s journalistic track record will realize how absurd his comment was. “I take it at your word that you’re ethically bothered by Hunter Biden,” Todd said to Johnson to which he shot back “are you not?” “I’m a journalist. I have to deal in facts. Senator my question to...

    Discredited leftist website ratings firm NewsGuard has had a year to prove that its ratings system isn’t prejudiced against conservative media, but it’s failing miserably. A new analysis shows that liberal media outlets were rated 25 points higher on average than right-leaning media outlets illustrates how NewsGuard’s self-projection as a credibility gatekeeper is a complete joke. MRC Free Speech America analyzed the NewsGuard ratings of media outlets based on a list compiled by AllSides that classified their “bias” on a left-to-right scale. The average NewsGuard score for the “left” and “lean left” outlets — which included leftist outlets like USA...

    Former Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger will join CNN as a contributor now that the January 6th Committee has been dissolved. CNN announced on Wednesday that Kinzinger, the other Republican who served on the January 6th Committee alongside former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), would be joining the network as a senior political commentator. Unlike Cheney, who was defeated in a primary by Harriet Hageman, Kinzinger chose not to run for reelection after serving six terms representing his Illinois district.

But she may not have gotten what she paid for.

    In October 2020 when news of Hunter Biden's infamous laptop broke, which contained salacious details about his close business partnership with his father Joe Biden, National Public Radio quickly worked to bury the story. In fact, the outlet issued a lengthy explanation about why the laptop was a "non-story" and "waste of time," despite receiving millions of dollars in taxpayer funding each year through as series of federal grants. https://twitter.com/NPRpubliceditor/status/1319281101223940096Why haven't you seen any stories from NPR about the NY Post's Hunter Biden story?

    New York Magazine Intelligence section senior writer Eric Levitz discussed at length Monday the Twitter free speech controversy, but absurdly neglected to mention even once the most blatant example of government interference on that site, namely the constant monitoring and censorship from the FBI as well as the suppression of inconvenient stories, most notably about the Hunter Biden laptop.The absence of any referral to this seems as absurd as, say, Levitz writing a breaking story about the attack on Pearl Harbor and neglecting any mention of the Japanese.

    ABC’s anchor Martha Raddatz accused Govs. Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Ron DeSantis (R-FL), and former President Donald Trump of telling people the United States has “an open border, come on over” Sunday on “This Week.” Partial transcript as follows: RADDATZ: You talk about the border wall, you talk about open borders, I don’t think I’ve ever heard President Biden say, we have an open border, come on over. But people I have heard say it are you, are former president Trump, Ron DeSantis, that message reverberates in Mexico and beyond. So they do get the message that it’s an open...

    New York CNN — Twitter on Thursday evening banned the accounts of several high-profile journalists from top news organizations without explanation, apparently marking a significant attempt by new owner Elon Musk to wield his unilateral authority over the platform. The accounts belonging to CNN’s Donie O’Sullivan, The New York Times’ Ryan Mac, The Washington Post’s Drew Harwell and other journalists who have covered Musk aggressively in recent weeks were all abruptly permanently suspended. The account of progressive independent journalist Aaron Rupar was also banned.

    New York Times television critic James Poniewozik declared in his end of the year review that the January 6 Committee hearings were the "most important TV of the year." "It’s no insult to call this investigation, above, into the attack on democracy a TV show; that was its power and its accomplishment," Poniewozik wrote. "Deploying deft editing, story structure, graphics, suspense, social media virality and, yes, a touch of showmanship, the hearings made a public service into the show of the summer and the most important TV of the year." Earlier this year, Poniewozik compared the hearings to a true-crime...

    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre embarrassed herself again this week when she accidentally read the wrong scripted response to a question during Monday’s White House press briefing. A reporter pointed out that Sen. Jean Shaheen (D-N.H.) is upset with Joe Biden for supporting a proposal that would put South Carolina ahead of New Hampshire in the primary schedule, and that Shaheen believes that New Hampshire “is now vulnerable for her party” because of that. “Does the president have a response to that?” the reporter asked. “So, look, we honor — we honor the Hatch Act, as I mentioned many...

    Anyway, Jimmy Arturo Paiz is accused of shooting a 15-year-old in the leg. The youth was campaigning for Raphael Warnock in Georgia. Of course, that means all systems were go for a screed against white heterosexual Christian males who go around shooting anyone in the leg for challenging the patriarchy. According to the Post Millennial, several prominent Democrats were quick to blame Republicans, including Kaivan Shroff, writer Molly Knight, and the leftist activist group Occupy Democrats. I honestly didn’t know they were still around. Weren’t they bought by the Chinese, or Disney, or something? The Leftists in question lamented that...

    Everyone knows that Hunter Biden left his infamous laptop at a computer repair shop in Delaware. The store owner even contacted Hunter to get him to pick it up, but he never returned for it, effectively forfeiting the device per the store’s policy — which Hunter Biden agreed to. But on Sunday, the New York Times bizarrely claimed the laptop had been “stolen” in a report about the release of the “Twitter files” by Elon Musk. “Mr. Musk and Mr. Taibbi framed the exchanges as evidence of rank censorship and pernicious influence by liberals,” Michael M. Grynbaum, a media correspondent...

    The media has ceased to exist, and the public plods on by assuming as true whatever the media suppresses and as false whatever the media covers. The current “media”—loosely defined as the old major newspapers like the New York Times and Washington Post, the network news channels, MSNBC and CNN, PBS and NPR, the online news aggregators like Google, Apple, and Yahoo, and the social media giants like the old Twitter and Facebook—are corrupt. They have adopted in their news coverage a utilitarian view that noble progressive ends justify almost any unethical means to obtain them. The media is unapologetically...
