    New York Times Reporter Maggie Astor changes her tune, originally said Veritas videos have “solely” unnamed sources but now says they have “many” unnamed sources. Astor said she labelled the videos “deceptive” because she was unable to corroborate the videos on her own. Astor: “I know of Project Veritas and, before writing my articles about the Video, I knew that it had a reputation for publishing deceptively-edited videos and had been publicly criticized many times for doing so.” New York Times legal team cite Wikipedia to justify mischaracterizing Project Veritas. New York Times legal team excused Astor’s article as an...

    WASHINGTON - The patter of paws is being heard in the White House again following the arrival of President Joe Biden’s dogs Champ and Major. The two German shepherds are the first pets to live at the executive mansion since the Obama administration. Major burst onto the national scene late last year after Biden, then president-elect, broke his right foot while playing with the dog at their home in Wilmington, Delaware. The Bidens adopted Major in 2018 from the Delaware Humane Association. Champ joined the family after the 2008 presidential election that made Joe Biden vice president. The Bidens had...

  • Five examples of media's sycophancy for Biden on inauguration week

    The Hill ^ | 1/25/2021 | Joe Concha
    Coverage of presidential inauguration week underperformed already-low expectations, with the usual measured accolades and sober analysis for the incoming president mostly sidelined for fawning praise and outright activism. The overall theme centered on the premise that President Biden is in essence the second coming of George Washington, who, according to popular lore, vowed never to tell a lie. Anchors and pundits returned to this theme again and again with Biden, who famously dropped out of his first presidential run due to a plagiarism scandal. Biden also claimed multiple times – including once during last year’s presidential campaign – to have...

    American Thinker ^ | January 23, 2021 | Thomas Lifson
    I never expected that an MSNBC host would deliver outright admission that the media have a serious double standard and would attack Donald Trump for actions that Joe Biden just took to no approbation at all. Has someone spiked the coffee pot at the MSNBC's D.C. studios with sodium thiopental? Or is it that with Democrats in charge of all three elective organs of the federal government, it is deemed safe to let a little bit of truth out? We'll never know, but I am guessing we won't see any similar admissions anytime soon. ... MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle...

    White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield was interviewed Thursday morning by CNN host Alisyn Camerota regarding how the Biden administration will deal with networks that are “willfully lying” or spreading dishonest information. Camerota asked Bedingfield about a line in Biden’s inaugural speech in which he talked about fighting “lies told for power and for profit,” and if he was specifically talking about certain media outlets that allegedly lied about the 2020 election results. Camerota added in her question: “We know who they are. They are right-wing companies; some are more fringe than others, at this point, or more extreme than...

    More than £1 billion in debt and just hours before a meeting where he would be asked to explain a £38 million hole in his Mirror Newspapers' pension funds, Robert Maxwell's 22st body was found floating in the sea near the Canary Islands. Last Sunday, in the first part of our serialisation of a gripping new biography of the tycoon, we told of the run-up to his death. Here, in the final extract, we tell how the fall-out from it still reverberates today. Within hours of Robert Maxwell's death on November 5, 1991, tributes from world leaders began pouring in....

    It's safe to say that no president's wife has been treated more disrespectfully and disgracefully than Melania Trump, who exited the White House on Wednesday after four tumultuous years. Throughout history, several first ladies – notably, Rachel Jackson, Mary Todd Lincoln, Edith Wilson, Eleanor Roosevelt and Nancy Reagan – were attacked or criticized on personal or political grounds, sometimes viciously so by their husbands' political foes. Yet, in more recent times, the general rule became that first ladies were basically untouchable unless they were working for the administration in an official role, as was the case with Hillary Clinton when...

    The Washington Post announced that it is ending its "fact-checking" program. Glenn Kessler, an editor and chief fact-checker cited "the lack of need for such a program under the new administration." "During the four years Trump was president there were more than 30,000 instances where he made misleading or false statements that cried out for corrections by our staff," Kessler asserted. "During this same time span there wasn't a single instance in which a statement by Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, or any other prominent Democrat was found to be untrue. The elevation of Sen. Charles Schumer, a man...

    At a time when legacy publications are increasingly seen as playing for one political "team" or the other, this type of editorial decision will not do anything to fix that perception.UPDATE: As of 1:15 p.m. on January 22, The Washington Post has updated its website and URLs to restore the original version of the Kamala Harris profile detailed in Reason's post, below. "We should have kept both versions of the story on the Post's site (the original and updated one), rather than redirecting to the updated version," Kris Coratti, the Post's vice president for communications, told Reason in a statement...

NBC’s most recent affiliate deals with Charter and Dish Network do not include carriage for NBCSN beyond this year, sources said. Plus, sports leagues that have deals with NBC were being told of the changes this week.
  • Local Media Bias: Fawning Idol Worship of 1% Harris

    Just saw a local media show play back to back drooling "stories" on Commie Harris. One featured an OBVIOUS political spin piece created by the Dem campaign as a "feel good" promotion. The other was a photo of children in Indiana who supposedly spontaneously gathered to hold hands as Commie seized power.

    The media almost unanimously fawned over Joe Biden and the events of inauguration day with some crying over it, calling it America's 'happy ending' and gushing over new press secretary Jen Psaki who was given a remarkably warm welcome on her first day after years of hostility between the media gaggle and the person at the briefing room podium. Since Biden was inaugurated on Wednesday and even before then, some media outlets have relaxed their impartiality to welcome him and his administration with open arms. Unsurprisingly, many belong to the organizations that President Trump made enemies of throughout his presidency....

    Trust in the media is at an all-time low, with less than half of all Americans and just 18 percent of Republicans saying they trust traditional media outlets. The new data from Edelman's 2021 Trust Barometer was shared with Axios, and found that trust in social media has also hit an all-time low of just 27 percent. 'This is the era of information bankruptcy,' said Richard Edelman, CEO of Edelman, in a statement.

    President Biden displayed his notoriously thin skin while rolling out his COVID-19 plan Thursday, rebuking a White House pool reporter who asked if his new goal of 1 million vaccine injections a day was too low. “When I announced it, you all said it’s not possible — come on, gimme a break, man! It’s a good start,” Biden said at the White House during his first full day in office. The reporter had asked Biden if his goal was ambitious enough given the current demand.

The tongue baths that they gave Joe Biden, it was just embarrassing to watch. It was like watching a Jeffrey Toobin Zoom call or something."

    The pose Gaga struck with Biden before the election looked less like an endorsement than a mutual hostage situation: I don’t think either of them wanted to be there very much. Like them, the American people are stuck reading from a script we all hate, sure we know what the ending is but feeling powerless to do any different. We are forced every day to choke down another litany of falsehoods, another helping of trash TV, music, and straight-to-streaming “cinema,” about all of which we are supposed to shriek with enthusiasm like bearded wojaks. The economy’s about to tank, but...
