    New York Times op-ed columnist David Brooks ignited a wave of backlash after insulting rural Americans who have no contact with the “expert class.” SNIP “Look at how much more Republicans are affected by conspiracy theories than the Democrats, so it can’t just be the internet, there must be some demand,” Brooks said, pointing out the “two core problems.” “A lot of people in the expert class live in blue cities who are thriving,” he claimed. “And a lot of people left behind in the rural parts of America, they feel threatened economically, culturally, socially and they have no contact...

  • You Can Make This Stuff Up but Journalists Do

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Jim McCoy.In Shakespeare's narrative poem, The Rape of Lucrece, Roman leader Tarquin is unable to control his lust for Lucrece, the wife of his best friend. Tarquin wrestles with his principles momentarily before surrendering to his passions and forcibly raping Lucrece. Among the poem’s many themes is Tarquin’s violence and harm, a man led by his own selfish desires who cannot discern between right and wrong. Since Trump took office, we have witnessed Democrats and liberal journalists so overwhelmed by their own lust for power and control they cannot discern between right and...

    Transcripts of e-mails from employees of the US Embassy in Kyiv, received at the request of the human rights organization Judicial Watch, indicate that the embassy tracked 13 Twitter accounts in the spring of 2019, Ukrainian News reported. Fox News reports that the monitoring was carried out in relation to mainly journalists who asked questions about Russia, the activities of former Vice President Joe Biden and other sensitive topics, which in turn could harm the reputation of people from the previous Obama - Biden - Clinton administration. As previously stated by non-factional MP Andriy Derkach, the US Embassy in 2016,...

  • For Journalists, History Started Yesterday

    It always amazes me just how stupid reporters are. Maybe stupid isn’t the right word, ignorant is more like it. How do people who claim to be the arbiters of what is news not follow the news? Seems like knowing what you’re talking about would be an important component of journalism, especially since journalism considers itself “the first draft of history.” But for too many of these left-wing teleprompter readers and Democratic Party stenographers, history just started yesterday. MSNBC anchor Katy Tur is known not for her depth of knowledge on important issues, but her basic ignorance of things that...

    Usher and Ng, journalism professors at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, identified nine clusters of journalists or "communities of practice" in their study, published online by the journal Social Media + Society. Their "elite/legacy" cluster was the largest, including about 30% of the journalists covered in the study, with The Washington Post, NBC News, NPR and The New York Times among the major newsrooms represented. A congressional journalism cluster included another 20%. The other clusters centered around CNN, television producers, local political news, regulatory journalists, foreign affairs, long-form/enterprise reporting and social issues. In leading the study, Usher said she wanted...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/24/2020 | Jack Hellner
    In the Washington Post appeared an analysis of what is going right for Biden against Trump. To summarize: * He is leading in polls, sometimes by double digits. Isn’t it amazing how well Biden does in polls when most are skewed heavily towards Democrats and Independents even though that is not how the public votes? Remember, Hillary was leading big through Election Day. * Biden is raising lots of money and then the article admits Trump has around $100 million more in the bank than Biden. * Trump is receiving poor marks on the pandemic. What a shock considering he...

    A former employee of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) was sentenced today to 30 months in prison for leaking classified information to two journalists in 2018 and 2019. “Frese repeatedly passed classified information to a reporter, sometimes in response to her requests, all for personal gain,” said Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers. “When this information was published, it was shared with all of our nation's adversaries, creating a risk of exceptionally grave harm to the security of this country. His conviction and sentence demonstrate the Department’s commitment to the investigation and prosecution of such betrayals by...

    I sense we’re about to hear anti-Trumpers screech in unison: “WHY DIDN’T BOLTON TESTIFY TO ALL OF THIS IN NOVEMBER WHEN THE HOUSE IMPEACHMENT TEAM ASKED HIM TO?”Not me, though. Nothing would have changed if Bolton had testified. The Senate’s acquittal would have been even more embarrassing than it was, sure. But no one would have voted differently. Public opinion wouldn’t have moved much, if at all. This is who Trump is. There are many things that can be said about the details from Bolton’s book published this afternoon at the NYT and WaPo, and about the longer excerpt...
  • Bolton claims Trump called for scumbag journalists to be 'executed'

    Former White House national security adviser John Bolton reportedly claims in his forthcoming memoir that President Trump called for scumbag journalists to be “executed.” Bolton said Trump made the comments during a meeting last summer in New Jersey, according to a copy of Bolton's book obtained by The Washington Post. During the meeting, Trump said journalists should be jailed so they would have to expose their sources, Bolton wrote. “These people should be executed. They are scumbags,” Trump said, according to Bolton's account chronicled in the memoir, “The Room Where It Happened.”
  • Deep State Plotters – Devin Nunes Targets Rod Rosenstein’s Corrupt Activity to Initiate Robert Mueller…

    When contemplating the malign activity of Rod Rosenstein; and how angered President Trump is with former AG Jeff Sessions; it is worth remembering that Sessions requested Rod Rosenstein as his deputy, and then immediately thereafter Sessions recused himself, effectively positioning Rosenstein to run the operation against President Trump. That’s the background context for a great interview by Gregg Jarrett where Jarrett walks through the timeline of events with former HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes. At the 5:30 point of the interview, Nunes identifies Rosenstein as part of the coup attempt and blasts him for how Rosenstein structured the fraudulent scope memos....

    If the media is looking for a symbol of 'deviancy' in our politics that only '[makes] things worse,' they should stop looking at the press secretary and instead look in the mirror. New White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany isn’t letting so-called journalists get away with inane questions in the briefing room at the expense of real news, and the media don’t like it.This was on full display over the weekend during the latest media-Trump administration go-around, when McEnany sparred with reporters over the Obama administration’s malfeasance with regard to former national security adviser Michael Flynn.After a contentious exchange about...

    As facts about the Obama administration's spying and leaking are spilling out, media have a brief window of opportunity to salvage some credibility. As new details emerge about the Obama administration’s broad spying-and-leaking campaign against the incoming Trump administration, reporters have a choice to make about whether to cover this story honestly, at long last. There is a brief window of time afforded the media to get the story right. They should take advantage of it.Journalist Lee Smith already noted the seriousness of the problem facing legacy media after the implosion of the Russia collusion conspiracy theory they peddled. “Americans...

    Everybody’s painfully aware that the economy has been taking a huge hit the last couple of months because of lockdowns related to the coronavirus outbreak. But now the layoff wave is starting to crash across the bow of the media, and it’s causing some alarms to go off: Over just three days, Condé Nast, Quartz and VICE gutted their newsrooms with layoffs. This is a historically bad year for digital and local journalism.

    But while journalists with job security keep trying to depict lockdown protesters as Grandma killers and not people who have lost their livelihood and are hitting food banks for the first time while just wanting to return to work, it’s with a mixed sympathy that we hear about journalism jobs disappearing during the recession. . . . (BuzzFeed News senior reporter Venessa Wong) "Journalists laid off today will likely be unemployed for months and likely, by necessity, have to find employment in other fields. A lay-off now would effectively end a career in journalism. We have to save jobs."

    Journalists have just given voters a terrific reason to re-elect watch their hilarious angst. Jeremy Barr in Saturday's Hollywood Reporter has chronicled the whining by the press at the prospect of being forced to cover four more years of Donald Trump in the Oval Office. It is obvious, though they lamely try to hide it to no avail, that most of the Washington press corps suffers from extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome and the idea of continuing to cover Trump for another term has sent them into complete despair. So for many voters, casting their ballots for Trump would be...

    Andrew Cuomo backed a state regulation that turned nursing homes into pandemic hotspots. But journalists determined to boost him at TrumpÂ’s expense arenÂ’t biting. The news media isnÂ’t waiting for the dust to settle on the coronavirus pandemic to start assessing blame for the ensuing losses. Since the moment it became apparent that the Wuhan coronavirus was going to exact a fearsome toll in the United States, the pundit class began asserting that the Trump administration had failed to safeguard the country against the threat.As the crisis deepened and lockdowns were imposed, a different political narrative emerged that contrasted with...
  • After mocking Trump for promoting hydroxychloroquine, journalists now acknowledge it might treat Coronavirus

    After repeatedly mocking President Trump for suggesting on March 19 that hydroxychloroquine could be an effective treatment for coronavirus, media organizations have begun acknowledging that the drug -- now approved for emergency use to treat coronavirus by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) -- may be useful after all. Journalists and top Democrats have beaten a similarly hasty retreat from their previous claims that Trump's ban on travel from China was both xenophobic and ineffective. But media outlets' misinformation on hydroxychloroquine was unique because it involved not simply policy disagreements but also suggestive medical advice and directives that could have dissuaded some...
