    Newsweek ^ | 2/20/2024 | Palmer
    A number of Republican and MAGA figures have reacted angrily after The Houston Chronicle, one of the biggest newspapers in Texas, endorsed President Joe Biden. The Houston Chronicle's editorial board said they would be backing Biden in the Democratic primary and for re-election so he can "make life better" for the American people as well as prevent the "chaos, corruption and danger to the nation" that would accompany his presumed 2024 Republican challenger Donald Trump returning to the White House. The Houston Chronicle's praise for Biden will be a boost for the Democrat as he seeks re-election in November. It...
  • Mainstream media, collapsing since 2020, loses 40% online audience, faces existential threat. Physical circulation hits 1940 levels.

    Mainstream media faces a dire decline, losing 40% of online audience since 2020, triggering attacks and revealing an existential struggle. What is even worse are the physical subscription numbers. The physical US Newspaper circulation is below what was distributed in 1940. Is this a spiral of doom for mainstream media? People used to have to pay for the paper to be delivered. Once the Internet became a force, digital advertisers picked up the gap between subscribers and media for online consumption. Then the coverage got worse.

    On Sunday, September 17 – Constitution Day here in the USA – the most recent former President was on television being interviewed by Kristen Welker for NBC’s Meet the Press. During the interview, the former president was asked why he continued to fight; why he continued to insist that he had actually won the 2020 election. In response to her questions, President Trump replied, “It was my decision, but I listened to some people.” This sentence was within the context of a few minutes of back-and-forth in which President Trump described how he received tons of advice from tons of...

    We are going to need a new industry that simply spends its time fact-checking the so-called “fact-checkers.” That’s the story after a new landmark study published in The Lancet offered vindication to everyone who touted natural immunity to COVID-19 as an alternative to vaccination. For years, the powers that be, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House, and the press, dismissed the idea of taking natural immunity into account when debating vaccine mandates and vaccine passports. They were wrong, so much so that even the mainstream media are having to admit it. ... This study also puts to rest another...

    It’s perhaps not surprising, but there appears to be a major news blackout concerning the horrific charges against a gay couple from Georgia who allegedly pimped out their minor children for sexual abuse. Last week, Mia Cathell of the conservative website TownHall.com, launched what’s become a four-part series investigating the alleged abuses committed by William Dale Zulock and Zachary Jacoby Zulock against two boys, ages 9 and 11, they had adopted...

    Fox News ^ | 01/10/2023 | Jeffrey Clark | Fox News
    Former MSNBC host and leftist anti-Trump critic Keith Olbermann rushed to defend President Joe Biden on Twitter after Biden became embroiled in a classified documents scandal. "We’re really going to do this again? We’re really going to do Hillary Clinton’s emails again? We’re really going to do whataboutism and both sides-ism again?" Olbermann asked in a video he posted on the social media platform. Olbermann targeted CNN, CBS News, NBC News, The Washington Post and The New York Times for reporting on a newly revealed investigation into Biden's alleged mishandling of classified documents.

    The former head of trust and safety at Twitter recently admitted that the social media company’s decision to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020 was a "mistake." During a sit down with journalist Kara Swisher, ex-Twitter safety chief Yoel Roth said that despite concerns about the authenticity of the laptop story, it still did not reach a point where he wanted to remove the content — which was later censored anyway. Initial reporting suggested that Roth blocked user access from the October 2020 story, but the former Twitter division lead said the decision was not up to him.

    Actress Nichelle Nichols, who played Lieutenant Uhura on the original Star Trek television series in the 1960s, passed away over the weekend at 89. The Hollywood Reporter published an obituary including many celebrity comments and tweets in her memory, and the article began as follows: ------------------------------------------- Among those paying tribute to Nichols was President Joe Biden, who praised her as a “trailblazer of stage and screen who redefined what is possible for Black Americans and women.” His statement continued about her Star Trek role, “With a defining dignity and authority, she helped tell a central story that reimagined scientific pursuits...

    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...

    Both a federal judge and the top Republican on the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot have now reached the same stark conclusion: There is evidence to suggest Donald Trump’s effort to overturn the 2020 election could be a crime. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., said last weekend that her panel had compiled enough facts to refer Trump to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution, while U.S. District Judge David Carter wrote last month that Trump and others undertook “a coup in search of a legal theory.” Neither has the power to bring charges against the former president. That’s up...
  • Mainstream Media Is "Being Swallowed" By a Podcaster Named Joe Rogan

    Over the past week, after a blog post I made about how Joe Rogan was disrupting the mainstream media, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by former Fox Houston newswoman Ivory Hecker about what the future of the mainstream media looks like.You may remember Ivory as the woman who was fired after interrupting a live, on-air weather report this past summer to claim that Fox was “muzzling” her, before turning over her evidence to Project Veritas.A follow up interview by Project Veritas revealed that Hecker was reportedly reprimanded by the network for bringing up hydroxychloroquine during an interview and...

    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...

    With the conclusion of the first year of the Biden administration, White House chief of staff Ron Klain sought to end on a high, or at least higher, note by retweeting a column saying that 2021 was not "all bad." It was like bragging that a bad first date told you that the evening could have been worse. However, what really stood out in the column by Albert Hunt was the key rationale: the first year was "scandal free."

    On November 19, Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges in the shootings of Joseph Rosenbaum, Anthony Huber, and Gaige Grosskreutz in Kenosha, WI. His defense established that the teenager was acting in self-defense; the prosecution was unable to prove otherwise. Even media outlets not aligned with the conservative view were constrained to observe that among the “undisputed facts” of the case are that Rosenbaum chased and later advanced on Rittenhouse when he stood his ground; that Huber hit him with a skateboard and lunged for his rifle; and that Grosskreutz pointed a handgun at him. Yet, the young man...

    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,...
