  • Modern Journalism: Prostitutes Or Partisan Hacks?

    05/24/2022 4:03:38 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 25 replies ^ | May 24, 2022 | Derek Hunter
    A liberal bragging about winning a journalism award is a lot like someone bragging about having sex at a brothel: once you pay, that’s what is supposed to happen. If you’re a liberal “journalist,” collecting Lucite bricks of varying shapes with your name laser etched in it is a full-time job. No profession awards itself more worthless prizes, with the possible exception of Hollywood. But the reality is journalists are less like the guy who brags about the prostitute and more like the actual prostitute. A prime example of this is CNN’s John Harwood. You almost have to feel bad...
  • The Only People More Corrupt Than Joe Biden Are The Journalists Covering Him

    When Rachel Maddow got her hands on the first page of one of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns it was a “STOP THE PRESSES!!!!” moment for the leftist media. All that showed was Trump had paid a ton in taxes that year, but the left would not be bound by reality and widely speculated about what the rest of the return, the pages they’d never seen, could possibly say. That level of curiosity – obsession, really – has not only waned when it comes to Joe Biden’s finances, it has dried up completely. The current occupant of the presidency...

    Far-right wing website InfoWars on Sunday filed for voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas in the face of multiple defamation lawsuits. Chapter 11 bankruptcy procedures put a hold on all civil litigation matters and allow companies to prepare turnaround plans while remaining operational. Alex Jones, founder of InfoWars, was found liable for damages in a trio of lawsuits last year filed after he falsely claimed that the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre was a hoax. Jones claimed the shooting, in which 20 children and six school employees were shot dead...
  • Internal CBS Revolt Against Hiring Republicans

    If anyone had any doubt that our "objective" television news operations are deeply partisan and nearly unanimous Biden-voter caucuses, observe the revulsion and disgust spilling out into public view when one of them hires a Republican to offer the Other Party's Viewpoint on their airwaves. CBS News decided to hire former Republican congressman (and Trump Chief of Staff) Mick Mulvaney, and then liberal Washington Post media reporter Jeremy Barr was handed internal recordings of staff "turmoil" over this supposed outrage. Barr "obtained" a recording of a staff meeting led by CBS News co-President Neeraj Khemlani. Surely, the staffer recording this...
  • Mayor Eric Adams is Half Right

    It is usually Republicans who blast the media for what they consider biased or unfair coverage of their policies, but increasingly we are hearing Democrats engaging in the same behavior, apparently frustrated their agenda is not being embraced by some of their fellow Democrats and the public. Last week, New York City Mayor Eric Adams, who has yet to stem rising crime as he promised to do, criticized reporters for what he regards as their negative coverage of his administration. To be fair, he was just sworn in on Jan. 1, 2022, but there are few signs that the policies...
  • The Power to Ignore

    Source: Townhall MediaOnce in TV journalism there were people called assignment editors and news directors. Among their responsibilities was to instruct reporters and camera crews which stories they were to cover that day. Their choices were based on several factors that included what they regarded as news, viewer interest (i.e., ratings) and much more subtly, their own biases. When I began my journalism career as a reporter, there were only three broadcast networks and local TV and radio stations. The radio stations played music and reported local news. The news was what these gatekeepers said it was. When the broadcast...
  • ABC Saves Biden's Bacon in Year-end Roundup

    One of the most disturbing concepts in politics is the media elite providing the "first draft of history." You can test-drive this with a look at ABC's two-hour year-end special that aired on Dec. 27. It was mostly about celebrities and athletes and some natural disasters. But when resident Joe Biden came up, ABC was energetically playing defense. It began with Biden's inauguration and former President Donald Trump's second impeachment proceeding, over the Jan. 6 riot -- when Trump was already replaced. ABC anchorman David Muir announced: "Back at the White House -- A flurry of executive orders, plans to...
  • Tucker: Real inflation is significantly worse than even the boldest headlines

    Mainstream media outlets and Democrats can no longer ignore that inflation, one of the most terrifying economic events that can hit a country, is bad and getting worse. What’s most disturbing, though, is that the headlines seriously understate what’s really going on. Tucker Carlson, in a monologue that deserves wider attention than it received, reminds us that the feds changed their consumer price metrics in a way intended to obscure that inflation is actually worse than it was 40 years ago. Although I was a teen during inflation’s peak years in the mid-to-late 1970s, I got a front-row seat for...
  • The Kyle Rittenhouse Case -- Send in The Clowns

    During and after the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, the white 18-year-old accused of murdering two white men and injuring another, one could hardly keep track of the insanity based on falsehoods recklessly peddled by media and politicians. In Chicago, the Rev. Jesse Jackson marched in the front line of a group of protesters where some chanted, "When black lives are under attack, what do we do?" Black lives under attack? Rittenhouse is white, as were the two men he shot dead and the man he injured. In September 2020, presidential candidate Joe Biden posted a video that included a picture...

    This past Thursday, YouGov released a poll showing that 76% of Democrats thought Kyle Rittenhouse was guilty of homicide. Only 5% believed that he was not guilty. Similarly, 69% of blacks thought he was guilty, and only 6% felt that he wasn’t. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, wrote on Twitter that the verdict is a “heartbreaking miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by DOJ.” President Biden, who famously called Rittenhouse a white supremacist, also expressed Democrats’ anger: “While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned,...
  • There Will Be No Media 'Reckoning' Over the Steele Dossier

    Axios says there's a "reckoning" in the media over coverage of the Steele dossier after the partisan oppo document's primary source was charged with lying to the FBI. "It's one of the most egregious journalistic errors in modern history," writes Sara Fischer, "and the media's response to its own mistakes has so far been tepid." Tepid is a nice way of putting it. While the Washington Post "corrected" some of its discredited reporting on the dossier, removing portions of reporting connecting former President Donald Trump to Russia, there has been virtually no other accountability. And, really, it's become modus operandi...

    Beauty is only skin deep, but in the case of the NBC News race-baiting host ironically named Joy Reid, every bit of her is ugly. She finds race everywhere, especially when it’s not there. It’s her brand, and hate is her medium – her sculptor’s clay. She works in racism the way Van Gogh used paints or Hunter Biden uses crack, it’s where she thrives and all she brings to the table. Inside and out, Reid is the worst person on cable news, and NBC News, which employs her, Comcast, which owns NBC Universal, and every Comcast customer pays her...
  • Rolling Stone Commits 'Horse Dewormer' Fraud

    Source: Rolling StoneThe liberal reporters on the "misinformation" beat and those "independent fact-checkers" are very aggressive about squashing information about COVID-19 that is either flat-out untrue or opposed to the (sometimes fluctuating) findings of government agencies. Sadly, these so-called guardians of truth aren't as aggressive about narratives that mock anti-vaccine activists and COVID skeptics. The obvious case in point is Rolling Stone's latest fact-mangling embarrassment. They put out a report on Sept. 3 with this tweet: "Gunshot victims left waiting as horse dewormer overdoses overwhelm Oklahoma hospitals, doctor says." "Horse dewormer" means ivermectin, which is also used as a "human...

    Joe Biden slurred through remarks on his botched Afghanistan withdrawal and tropical storm Henri on Sunday. As usual, Joe Biden called on a list of pre-approved reporters because he doesn’t have the mental capacity to answer candid questions. After giving bizarre answers to a few questions, Joe Biden fled the lectern. Biden turned around when a reporter asked him if he was going to put sanctions on the Taliban. ..... Snip..... Shortly after the US embassy sent out a warning to Americans on Saturday, the Associated Press received word of a potential ISIS threat against Americans. “Potential Islamic State threats...

  • Hunter Biden: Bane of the 'Mainstream' Press

    Four summers ago, the network evening news shows obsessed over Donald Trump Jr. attending a brief and ineffective meeting with Russians at Trump Tower in 2016. He hoped to get "dirt" on Hillary Clinton, but nothing came of it. ABC, CBS and NBC offered viewers more than 62 minutes of coverage energetically speculating over collusion with the Russians in just four nights in July. On Aug. 11, the Daily Mail reported, "Hunter Biden claimed Russians stole another one of his laptops for blackmail while he was close to overdosing in a Las Vegas hotel room." Coverage on ABC, CBS and...
  • Sorry Leftists, You Haven’t Destroyed Trump’s Popularity

    The left tried as hard as it could to destroy Donald Trump, realizing what a threat he was to their positions because he was so popular and aggressively pursued conservative positions. But even after defeating him in the presidential election, which a majority of Republicans believe was due to fraud, they have made little inroads into ruining his continuing leadership across the country. Despite the vast amounts of media spin — attempting to make it look like no one likes him, that his life is in disarray, he’s a has-been and crooked — it’s not working. Trump made one of...
