  • NPR Says Reporting Biden Corruption ‘Waste of Time’ [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 25 October 2020 | John Semmens
    Recent revelations indicating a long-running influence peddling operation involving Biden family members—including the former Vice-President—would strike most people as being newsworthy. However, most of the mainstream media have been avoiding the topic. However, taxpayer-funded National Public Radio (NPR) has gone even further down the road of denial by declaring it a “waste of time.” Kelly McBride, NPR’s public editor, explained that “unlike commercial media we’re not in this business for the money. As a publicly-funded operation it is our duty to protect the listening audience from hearing unworthy stories. Trump supporters are touting the actions taken by Hunter Biden and...
  • How Woodrow Wilson’s Propaganda Machine Changed American Journalism

    Smithsonian Magazine ^ | APRIL 28, 2017 | Christopher B. Daly
    The media are still feeling the impact of an executive order signed in 1917 that created ‘the nation’s first ministry of information’.. When the United States declared war on Germany 100 years ago, the impact on the news business was swift and dramatic. In its crusade to “make the world safe for democracy,” the Wilson administration took immediate steps at home to curtail one of the pillars of democracy – press freedom – by implementing a plan to control, manipulate and censor all news coverage, on a scale never seen in U.S. history. Following the lead of the Germans and...
  • Trump claims wind energy "kills all the birds." Cats and windows are actually much more to blame.

    CBS "News" ^ | October 23, 2020 | BY SOPHIE LEWIS
    Cats, glass windows and vehicles: These pose the biggest threats to birds in the United States. But President Donald Trump is continuing to falsely claim that wind turbines are to blame for the deaths of the nation's birds. During Thursday night's final presidential debate between the president and former Vice President Joe Biden, Mr. Trump reiterated his stance against wind energy with a peculiar claim: It "kills all the birds." "I know more about wind than you do," Mr. Trump told Biden when moderator Kristen Welker turned to the topic of climate change. "It's extremely expensive. Kills all the birds....
  • Trump commits to familiar playbook to define Biden in tamer final debate: ANALYSIS

    ABC "News" / Disney ^ | October 22, 2020 | By Rick Klein (D-ABC)
    President Donald Trump knows the playbook, in part, because he basically wrote it: A flurry of stories, a stunt designed to rattle his opponent and an attempt to define his opponent based on family connections and dark allegations. Trump stepped into the relatively calm conversation at Thursday night's presidential debate with a series of attacks on Joe Biden and his family, in what may be seen as a last-ditch attempt to turn around a campaign that's shaping up as a referendum on Trump's presidency. "I don't make money from China, you do. I don't make money from Ukraine, you do,"...
  • Inside the campaign to 'pizzagate' Hunter Biden

    NBC "News" / Comcast ^ | October 22, 2020 | By Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny
    Some of the same people who pushed a false conspiracy theory about Hillary Clinton that first emerged in 2016 are now targeting Hunter Biden, Joe Biden's son, with similar falsehoods. Their online posts are garnering astronomical numbers of shares on social media. The fantastical rumors, which NBC News is declining to repeat verbatim, echo specific plot points central to "pizzagate," a viral disinformation campaign that predates QAnon but also falsely alleges a vast conspiracy of child abuse. The disinformation campaign appears to have been successful in its goal of generating a smear against the former vice president's son. According to...

    President Trump followed through after tweeting that he will publish an “unedited preview” of his "60 Minutes" sitdown to show viewers that the interview was a “vicious attempted ‘takeout’” by correspondent Lesley Stahl when he posted a portion of the interview on Facebook Thursday. “I will soon be giving a first in television history full, unedited preview of the vicious attempted ‘takeout’ interview of me by Lesley Stahl of @60Minutes,” Trump wrote. “Watch her constant interruptions & anger. Compare my full, flowing and ‘magnificently brilliant’ answers to their ‘Q’s.’” “60 Minutes” did not immediately respond to a request for comment....
  • Double Standards On Biden Corruption Versus Spygate Prove Big Media Is Public Enemy No. 1

    The Federalist ^ | October 22, 2020 | Margot Cleveland
    Corporate media obscured the biggest political scandal in U.S. history, involving the Obama-Biden administration spying on a political enemy. They’re doing the same to Biden corruption. Big media’s divergent handling of the Steele dossier and the Hunter Biden email stories proves that the corrupt press is not just the enemy of the people, but the enemy of truth, freedom, and our constitutional republic. For nearly four years, big media peddled Russia collusion as reality-based and the Christopher Steele “dossier” it rested upon as “mostly verified” or “fake but accurate.” Relying on unnamed sources, inuendo, and illegal leaks, the press played...

    The Spectator ^ | October 20, 2020 | Lee Smith
    That’s the title of The Spectator Oct. 20th article, which stated in part: Jeffrey Toobin is a man much wronged. On Monday, the New Yorker writer was suspended by the magazine for which he’s written for two decades, and took a leave of absence from CNN, where’s he served as a legal affairs analyst since 2002. What possible sin could he have committed that forced these pillars of the media establishment to sideline a bonafide star with the presidential election less than two weeks away and Team Joe Biden needing every hand on deck? Toobin masturbated during a Zoom video...

    "The Bidens aren't answering basic questions about the story," Greenwald said. "Basic questions like did Hunter Biden drop that laptop off of the repair shop? Are the emails authentic? Do you know denied that they are. Do you claim that any have been altered or are any of them fabricated? Did you in fact meet with Barisma executives? The reason they don't answer the questions is because the media has signaled that they don't have to. That journalists will be attacked and vilified simply for asking." "The whole point of the Intelligence Community since the end of World War II...

  • Why Big Media Will Never Report On Hunter Biden’s Emails

    The Federalist ^ | October 20, 2020 | John Daniel Davidson
    But they will gladly report on the reporting of the emails. The corporate media has refused to cover the substance of the New York Post’s bombshell reporting on Hunter Biden’s recovered laptop and emails, not because there’s nothing to the story or because the emails are fake, but because the story itself is, on its face, harmful to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.That’s not to say news outlets haven’t been writing about the Post’s reporting. They’ve simply decided to cover the meta-narrative—the story about the story—while studiously ignoring what Hunter Biden’s emails reveal about his family’s overseas business dealings and...

    In President Donald Trump’s favored narrative of how elections are won and lost, the candidate who holds the most events with the biggest crowds wins. "Every RALLY is BOFFO," he said in a Monday tweet about his confidence of winning re-election, telling campaign staffers on a call the same day that he was now more confident of winning than he was two weeks ago, when he appeared at no campaign events while recovering from Covid-19. Now, with two weeks to go, he heads into the final stretch of the race relying heavily on his rallies to change the dynamic of...
  • QAnon:The Media's Latest Obsession; What is this mysterious group anyway?

    American Thinker ^ | 10/20/2020 | Brian C. Joondeph
    Big media has had multiple obsessions during President Trump’s first term. From Stormy and Avenatti to the myriad tell-all books about Trump, his administration, and his family. From Russia and an innocuous phone call to Ukraine, to his taxes and how many scoops of ice cream he is served. These are all red herrings, a way to pick at Trump while studiously avoiding serious policy issues, what he is actually accomplishing as president, promises made becoming promises kept. The latest obsession is QAnon, in the media and recently at the NBC town hall event. Despite being billed as a...

    New York Post ^ | October 19, 2020 | Rich Lowry
    Joe Biden is the most cosseted presidential candidate in memory. He has run a minimalist campaign that has avoided the press as much as possible, while the press hasn’t been braying for more access and answers, but eager to avoid anything that could be discomfiting to the campaign. Never before have the media been so openly fearful of asking or reporting something that might hurt a presidential candidate. What are supposed to be the animating values of our adversarial press — informing the public, getting answers, holding the powerful to account — have all been subordinated to the protection racket...

    The Federalist, ^ | OCTOBER 19, 2020 | Jimmy Sengenberger
    Forty-nine-year-old Lee Keltner was fatally shot following a “Patriot Muster” protest last Saturday afternoon in downtown Denver, blocks from the Colorado Capitol near the Denver Art Museum. The shooter was an unlicensed security guard with documented far-left ties who was hired by Denver NBC News affiliate KUSA 9News. The story even garnered President Trump’s attention, with multiple retweets on Wednesday. On Thursday, Denver District Attorney Beth McCann, a Democrat, announced she will file second-degree murder charges against Dolloff. While first-degree murder charges in Colorado require evidence of planning and intent to kill, second-degree murder charges imply that “the person knowingly...
  • With a handful of days until the election, press asks Biden: 'What flavor milkshake did you get?'

    Blaze ^ | October 18, 2020 | Paul Sacca
    With 16 days until the election, and so many unanswered questions surrounding Joe Biden's campaign, the media asked the Democratic presidential nominee the critical question of: "What flavor milkshake did you get?" That was the pivotal query that the press decided to ask the possible next president with a little over two weeks until the election. The media were presented with an opportunity to ask Biden a question regarding his campaign on Sunday. The press could have asked if he is in favor of court-packing or asked about his response to the allegations of Hunter Biden's overseas dealings, which one...

    Back fully campaigning after COVID-19 sidelined him, President Donald Trump returned to familiar form, spreading a litany of falsehoods. Over the weekend, he asserted yet again the virus was “rounding the corner” when it isn’t, misrepresented Democratic rival Joe Biden’s tax proposals and resurrected unfounded claims about Biden and the business dealings of his son, Hunter Biden, in Ukraine. A look: TAXES and ECONOMY TRUMP, in all capital letters: “Sleepy Joe Biden is proposing the biggest tax hike in our country’s history!” - tweet Saturday. THE FACTS: It wouldn’t be the biggest. Biden’s proposal would raise as much as $3.7...
