  • No, CPAC’s Stage Layout Wasn’t A Secret Nazi Symbol, And It’s An Offensive Claim With Zero Evidence

    The Hyatt brand of hotels is the latest victim of a boycott campaign from leftist activists upset conservative leaders have a place to share their ideas.This past weekend, the Conservative Political Action Conference came to Orlando, Florida — a state still open during the COVID-19 pandemic. For the venue, CPAC organizers chose the Hyatt Regency, which saw speeches from President Donald Trump, Senators Ted Cruz, and Josh Hawley, and Reps. Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz among others.According to Leftist Twitter, the Hyatt also hosted Nazis. But if that was the ostensible goal of CPAC, boy did it fail.Bad faith Twitter...

    The notoriously leftist BuzzFeed is reportedly set to purchase the insufferably liberal HuffPost. When it’s over, Verizon Media will have a stake in both. The Wall Street Journal reported that the Buzzfeed acquisition of HuffPost “is part of a larger deal between BuzzFeed and Verizon Media, a unit of Verizon Communications Inc.” Under the pact, “the companies will syndicate content on each other’s platforms and look to jointly explore advertising opportunities,” according to The Journal.
  • Despicable: Joe Biden is trying to lie his way into the White House

    Joe Biden's gaffes, plagiarisms, fantasies, brain farts, inchoate gibberings, and meltdowns about himself are well known, but there's also his propensity to lie about others -- calmly, matter-of-factly, and quite outrageously. He's using that creepy ability to lie repeatedly on the campaign trail, spreading a string of false information about President Trump. Based on his recent behavior, Biden wouldn't have any trouble telling us the sky is yellow or water is dry, given the size of his whoppers. It's most obvious in his nakedly false claims around the coronavirus crisis, something whose supposed nonpartisanship is something Biden makes a mockery...

    Two things are necessary to analyze information: (1) perspective; and (2) recognizing source bias. These tools have never been more useful than now, in a time of coronavirus. We are not the first to suggest that Democrats in and out of the media are exploiting coronavirus for political benefit. Having failed to take President Trump down with the Russia hoax and the faux impeachment, they’re grabbing on to coronavirus, with none more openly virulent than MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, a grinning jack-o-lantern of doom. Here’s some perspective: On March 13, 2020, when President Trump declared a national emergency and mobilized the...

    Melania Trump’s spokeswoman penned an op-ed Monday slamming the media for focusing on “trivial and superficial” matters, like the first lady’s marriage and fashion choices, despite her continued work benefiting children and military families. Stephanie Grisham, Mrs. Trump’s deputy chief of staff for communications, took issue with an opinion piece by CNN contributor Kate Anderson Brower, who accused the first lady of throwing herself a “pity party” for lamenting how she’s covered by the media during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity last week. “This condescending opinion, apparently written in response to a single answer Mrs. Trump gave in...

    Two cnn videos at link. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), one of the swing votes during now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation vote, went on CNN's "State of the Union" to explain how she decided to vote. Initially, Collins said she was undecided about how she was going to vote, especially after Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. She initially thought Kavanaugh should withdraw from the proceedings. The lack of corroborating evidence and the fundamental right of being innocent until proven guilty ultimately made Collins vote in favor of Kavanaugh. Instead of accepting Collins' reasoning,...

    One of the revelations in Friday’s indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was that alleged Russian attempts to sow disunity in 2016 included the organization of both pro- and anti-Trump rallies in New York City on the Saturday after Election Day. A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour. Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was “a love rally,” and repeated the marchers’ anti-Trump mantras, such as: “We reject the President-elect.”

    Last week’s anniversary of Trump’s election sparked widespread teeth-gnashing by the nation’s pundits. Trump is supposedly the gravest threat to American democracy since the secession of the Confederacy. His presidency, probably, continues to be a boon for antidepressant sales across the land. New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg, in a column last week headlined “Anniversary of the Apocalypse,” lamented the “terror-struck and vertiginous days” after Trump’s win and the ongoing “metaphysical whiplash” and “hideous interregnum,” which leaves her “poleaxed by grief at the destruction of our civic inheritance.” Professor Henry Giroux of McMaster University frothed that Trump’s “ascendancy in American...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at his country's media for leading a campaign to oust him as he battles a series of corruption allegations. Netanyahu on Wednesday accused the media of being on "an obsessive, unprecedented hunt against me and my family to carry out a regime change" during a rally held by Israel's Likud party in support of the prime minister. Hundreds of supporters packed a Tel Aviv convention center holding signs and chanting "Bibi, King of Israel," using the prime minister's nickname. Netanyahu said that the "leftist" media is teaming up with the political opposition to...

    Less than a week after calling President Barack Obama “the worst president we’ve ever had,” Mike Ditka lost his job on ESPN’s marquee Sunday football program. The Big Lead reports that the cable network hired Matt Hasselbeck to replace Ditka on Sunday NFL Countdown. Hasselbeck performed well in relief for an injured Andrew Luck this past season. He threw nine touchdowns to five picks and went 5-3 as a starter. But at 40, and with brother Tim enjoying a successful run as an analyst at ESPN, the 18-year NFL veteran opted to call it a career and start a...

    ...With less than a month to go in the campaign, and heading into the first of three leaders debates, the Tories have moved ahead of their rivals with the support of 35.4 per cent of voters, according to the Ekos poll conducted for Montreal’s La Presse newspaper.... “If (the Conservatives) keep those numbers up they’re very close to a majority — if not there already,” said pollster Frank Graves. “The numbers are about as good as we had for the final weekend of polling (in the 2011 election) when they achieved their majority.”...

    In January of 2014, award-winning investigative journalist for NBC News Lisa Meyers announced she was leaving the network after thirty-three years—supposedly to work on her golf game. However, an interview this week with the Des Moines Register gave credence to the speculation that she left because network news no longer wanted to upset the White House and other politicians. […] Meyers has made similar charges in the past: months before she left NBC, Newsbusters reported about a Meyers appearance where she called the press one of Obama’s most important constituencies. …

    Thomas Eric Duncan, the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States, grew up next to a leper colony in Liberia and fled years of war before later returning to his country to find it ravaged by the disease that ultimately took his life. Duncan, 42, arrived in Dallas in late September, realizing a long-held ambition to join relatives. He came to attend the high-school graduation of his son, who was born in a refugee camp in Ivory Coast and was brought to the U.S. as a toddler when the boy's mother successfully applied for resettlement....

The duo has posted several clips of their interview with Klein, but one this morning is particularly strange. They ask Klein about JournoList, the email group Klein ran several years ago that often served to coordinate coverage among left-leaning members of the media. Does such a group still exists, Cannon wonders?</p>

    Last week a line was crossed, and full blown insanity manifested itself in the formerly-mainstream media. My friend JMH is a model of a temperate media consumer, but watching the coverage of the Republican convention, she could not contain her fury: Something just snapped today, when I read about the race baiters at MSNBC not even airing any of the Convention's minority speakers. Even if Artur Davis weren't black, how is it a non-story, when the guy who seconded Obama's nomination ends up with a prime time spot on the GOP Convention stage? Ditto for covering Ted Cruz, who pulled...

    (03-30) 13:43 PDT West Palm Beach, Fla. (AP) -- When he was shot, Trayvon Martin was not the baby-faced boy in the photo that has been on front pages across the country. And George Zimmerman wasn't the beefy-looking figure in the widely published mugshot. Both photos are a few years old and no longer entirely accurate. Yet they may have helped shape initial public perceptions of the deadly shooting. Read more: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2012/03/30/national/a124959D75.DTL#ixzz1qdnyTFbC

    According to the survey, which was released Monday, 28 percent of Republicans and independents who lean towards the GOP say they support Perry as their party's presidential nominee, with Romney at 21 percent. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is at ten percent, with Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who's making his third bid for the White House, former Godfather's Pizza CEO and radio talk show host Herman Cain, and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, all at seven percent. The poll indicates that Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota is at four percent, with former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania at three...
