  • CBS execs bar the word ‘transgender’ from reports on Nashville shooter: ‘This is not journalism’

    Top executives at CBS News have banned staffers from using the word “transgender” when reporting on Nashville shooter — despite the fact police have said Audrey Hale was transgender and cited it as a key point in the case, The Post has learned. “The shooter’s gender identity has not been confirmed by CBS News,” the network’s executives insisted in a Tuesday memo obtained by The Post. “As such, we should avoid any mention of it as it has no known relevance to the crime. Should that change, we can and will revisit.” The CBS News directive was delivered on a...

    Governor J.B. Pritzker (D-IL) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that Republicans were “trying to keep our schools from teaching black history.” Partial transcript as follows: MARGARET BRENNAN: I want to ask you on the issue set that Democrats are running on, your office told- told us you’re very focused on school board races in Illinois to make sure extreme right wing candidates aren’t dominating them. I’m wondering how strong the Republican ground operation is on things like school boards. Is parents’ rights really something you think Democrats need to be concerned about on a national scale? PRITZKER: Well,...

    democrats in this country have suddenly discovered morality. Out of nowhere, the party that lied about Russian collusion all through the tenure of the 45th President has had an epiphany- that mendacity is something about which people should be concerned. The indignation was lead, of course, by the NY TimesRepublican George Santos, who was elected to Congress in New York’s 3rd Congressional District in November, may have falsified key parts of his resume, including his education, nonprofit work, and former jobs, according to a New York Times investigation published Dec. 19. This disclosure was followed by a tsunami of indignation...

    A new internal report debunked the left-wing media’s promotion of false accusations that Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis manipulated COVID-19 data throughout the height of the pandemic. The Florida Department of Health’s former dashboard manager, Rebekah Jones, claimed she was fired in May 2020 for her refusal to forge COVID numbers at the governor’s behest. Florida’s COVID data had no significant flaws. After her firing, Jones created her own dashboard that contained heavily inflated statistics, National Review senior writer Charles C.W. Cooke reported in the New York Post. Jones frequently appeared on MSNBC’s “TheReidOut” and CNN to promote her accusations...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — From the earliest days of his first presidential campaign, Donald Trump aggressively challenged the pillars of Republican foreign policy that defined the party since World War II.He mocked John McCain's capture during the Vietnam War, validated autocrats with his platitudes, questioned longtime military and security alliances and embraced an isolationist worldview. And to the horror of many GOP leaders at the time, it worked, resonating with voters who believed, in part, that a bipartisan establishment in Washington had brokered trade deals that hurt American workers and recklessly stumbled into so-called “forever wars.”But Russia's brutal invasion of Ukraine...

    As ABC and CBS ran reports commemorating the 10th anniversary of black Florida teen Trayvon Martin being shot to death by George Zimmerman, both networks misinformed their viewers, and ABC even imitated the same smear that NBC News was forced to apologize for 10 years ago. As both networks incorrectly implicated Florida's "stand your ground" law for making it easier for Zimmerman to avoid punishment, ABC News correspondent Zachary Kiesch used edited audio of Zimmerman's 911 call, making it sound like the neighborhood watch volunteer had told the dispatcher that Martin seemed suspicious in part because he was black. When...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats are gearing up to spend record sums on lawyers, advertising and other protect-the-vote efforts before the 2022 midterm elections, hoping to stave off Republican efforts they believe will choke off access to the ballot box. Worried that a spate of more restrictive voting laws adopted by Republican-controlled states will keep Democrats from registering their votes, donors big and small are filling their party's coffers. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) took in $157 million last year, the most for a year without a presidential election, and added $10 million more in January. The party-wide effort includes both...

    Former President Donald Trump and many leading conservative figures have been praising Russian President Vladimir Putin as he threatens Ukraine with war. Meanwhile, many are also bashing President Joe Biden's attempts to deter Putin from an attack while trying to minimize the possibility of any direct combat between the nuclear superpowers. While it's not unusual for former presidents to disagree with their successors on policy, it is unorthodox for them to shower a US adversary like Putin with flattery — particularly given the Russian leader is poised to launch a major military offensive on a US ally. But this hasn't...

    I hate vanities, but I thought that today and last night deserved recognition for being the one year anniversary of TankerKC and Buckhead blowing the CBS ANG document story out of the water. As we all know, this ultimately led to the disgracing of Dan Rather and rapidly advanced the already slow-moving demise of the MSM as a monopoly.

    NEW YORK -- With its official-looking BBC News banner, the Web site looked real enough, but the sick tale it told seemed too preposterous to be true. "Lion Mutilates 42 Midgets in Cambodian Ring-Fight," blared the headline. An article followed about a circus-like spectacle that went awry and resulted in many deaths. The page was a hoax, but it exploded across the Internet. Soon it was being repeated by bloggers, radio show hosts and a few newspapers. The New York Post published the yarn in its "Weird but True" column on May 20. The episode was another in a string...

    OPINION: As Donald Trump and Republicans continue their misinformation campaign around COVID-19, Black lives in red states literally hang in the balance As the COVID-19 variant strain begins to spread throughout the nation, almost 99% of the time it attacks the unvaccinated. On top that, misinformation politics around the virus and the vaccine in the United States is becoming deadly, particularly for Black people. Former President Donald Trump and his legions on Fox News and other conservative outlets have been spreading anti-mask, anti-virus protocols, and anti-vaccinations propaganda since the beginning of the pandemic. Fast forward to the summer of 2021,...

    Don Lemon started his program by discussing comments made by Tennessee State Rep. Justin Lafferty, R-Knoxville, about the Three-Fifths Compromise. Then, he devoted a segment in the second hour of Wednesday’s “CNN Tonight” to the subject. Lemon told his audience, incorrectly, that the Constitution “explicitly counted [slaves] as three-fifths of a free person, or three-fifths of a man, so that the slave states would be able to accrue more political power without having to count a slave as a full person.” In fact, the Three-Fifths Compromise denied slave-owning states their request to count 100% of their slaves in the Census....

    Not content with aiming to rewrite American history with its 1619 Project, The New York Times and project chief Nikole Hannah-Jones are now trying to rewrite the history of . . . the 1619 Project. Hannah-Jones won a Pulitzer Prize for her piece kicking off the series, which explicitly aimed to make the first slave’s arrival on these shores the seminal event of US history — to paint “1619 as our true founding.” “Out of slavery,” one Times editor explained, “grew nearly everything that has truly made America exceptional: its economic might, its industrial power, its electoral system.” Even the American Revolution...

    Many in the media enthusiastically relish the claim that the United States has more people infected with the coronavirus than China does, even though China's numbers are unreliable. When Donald Trump tweeted this week that the United States had performed more coronavirus tests than any other country, the media were upset. Trump being Trump, he’d also said the United States had done more tests in eight days than South Korea had done in eight weeks. PolitiFact calculated the United States had done 17,582 fewer tests than South Korea during that time period. LiveScience said the United States had done 43,790...

    Presidential hopeful Mike Bloomberg takes credit for leading New York “through” the 9/11 attacks in a campaign ad. But there’s one problem: He didn’t become mayor until four months later. Touting his leadership chops, the billionaire released a 30-second video including the claim. “I led a complex, diverse city through 9/11 and I have common-sense plans to move America away from the chaos to progress,” Bloomberg, 78, is seen saying at a campaign rally. But Rudy Giuliani was mayor during the attacks, and he didn’t hand Bloomberg the keys to Gracie Mansion until Jan. 1, 2002.
