  • BBC News – obsessive, biased- and unaccountable

    On Friday (1 March), BBC News published the latest findings from their ‘fact-checking’ flagship ‘BBC Verify’ – looking at the 100+ deaths that occurred during the chaos surrounding the aid convoy in Gaza.BBC launched BBC Verify last year – a unit comprising of 60 journalists to help fact-check, verify video, and counter disinformation. Intended to be a gold standard in the age of fake news, BBC Verify has just ended up being another obsessive anti-Israel propaganda outfit.While BBC Verify do not actually come to any conclusions over the aid convoy deaths, the piece is heavily slanted to blame the Israeli...
  • Washington Post Reporter Mocks Shoplifting Stories As The "Panic" Of "A Sticky-Fingered Nation Built On Stolen Land"

    Washington Post writer Maura Judkis is under fire this week for a column in which she mocks shoplifting stories as the “moral panic” of a nation built on “stolen land.”It is reminiscent of those who excused rioting in past summers “as an expression of power” and demanded that the media refer to looters as “protesters.” Now, the Washington Post is suggesting that it may be just desserts for a nation of colonizers and enslavers.The prior day, the Post ran another column downplaying accounts of stores closing due to shoplifting even though employees blamed rampant shoplifting in San Francisco.Judkis wrote a...

    PBS News hour Feb.29, 2024 Former Al Jazeera (Al jihadzeera) journalist, Nick Schifrin aired an Al Jazeera clip about the deaths of stampede as crowd storms aid trucks. Then a short clip of the IDF in which it clarifies it did not fire at people who were trying to get aid, but fired [at those] when facing a danger. Yet, minutes latet, Geoff Bennett, had interviewed a Jeremy Konyndyk, Jeff outright began in stating, as a matter of fact, that Israel (supposedly) "fired on the people" getting aid. He then quoted Amna Nawaz's citing "Gaza health ministry" about the toll,...

    My heart feels shattered into a thousand pieces every time I think about what was unwittingly unleashed upon this nation. If you wonder how in America we ended up rehashing the — already won — civil rights battles of the 1960s in the year 2023, you can blame people like me. In the wake of the 2015 Republican primaries, a massive and well-oiled machine consisting of hundreds, if not thousands, of media and social media outlets started to come together to harness an outrage mob of tens of millions of Americans, aiming to make President Donald Trump — and, by...

    Cohost Mika Brzezinski asked the pair, “Why are white rural voters a threat to democracy at this point? You would think, looking at Joe Biden and Donald Trump’s background, that the opposite would be true.” Schaller replied that they “lay out the fourfold interconnected threat that white rural voters pose to the country,” in their new book. “They are the most anti-gay, xenophobic in the country. QAnon support and subscribers, COVID denialism, Obama birtherism.” The author also argued that white rural Americans continue to espouse “anti-democratic sentiments.” “They don’t believe in an independent press, free speech. They’re most likely to...

    Corporate media are covering for the deadly consequences of President Joe Biden’s border invasion by pretending the illegal border crosser who allegedly assaulted, kidnapped, imprisoned, and murdered 22-year-old University of Georgia nursing student Laken Hope Riley this week was merely a nearby resident and not an illegal alien from Venezuelan with a criminal history.One day after Riley’s body was reported missing and subsequently found following an early morning run on her university’s campus in Athens, Georgia, Jose Ibarra was charged with several felonies related to her disappearance and death.The revelation sparked outrage among Americans who have noticed a pattern of...

    VIDEOLiberals love espousing diversity. However, for diversity that really counts, namely diversity of opinion, the mainstream media has shut that down. An example is the CNN panel discussing the primary victory of President Donald Trump in South Carolina. NOT ONE had a friendly word for Trump. Instead that panel, including "conservatives," presented a sold wall of TDS hate as you can see from some of the excerpts presented here. Any real conservatives who did support Trump on CNN, such as Jeffrey Lord, were removed by that network years ago.

    Note, however, that no mainstream fact-checking organization or misinformation watchdog group is springing into action to correct their claims. Liberal news outlets reported on the interview—The Huffington Post cheered Pelosi for putting Trump "on blast"—without calling it into question whatsoever. It's very telling what gets counted as misinformation and what doesn't. Pelosi was, until very recently, the third-most-powerful Democrat in Washington, D.C., yet her brand of conspiracy theorizing received little pushback. Psaki certainly didn't do her part.

    What should be the attitude of the media towards someone notable for being the purveyor of the biggest election 2020 fake news story? Shun them? That would be the correct attitude for such journalism malpractice. However, in the case of CNN it actually promoted such a person. Natasha Bertrand who was the main person behind promoting the fake news story in Politico that the New York Post report in October 2020 revealing the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop was a result of Russian disinformation.The CNN announcement on Tuesday of Bertrand's promotion on X (which everyone still calls Twitter) went over...

    NewsBusters ^ | 2/13/2024 | Joseph Vazquez
    Consumer prices jumped hotter-than-expected, and leftist media outlets were predictably fumbling over themselves trying to spin the bad news in any which way they could to protect the floundering Biden economy. The latest Bureau of Labor Statistics inflation report showed that consumer prices spiked 3.1 percent year-over year, with a 0.3 percent increase month-over-month, both exceeding expectations. CBS News even conceded the new hot numbers “complicat[ed]” the Federal Reserve’s decision to cut interest rates. The outlet also noted that higher prices “remain sticky.” The Dow Jones Industrial Average also tumbled over 400 points following the news. But that didn’t stop...

    The establishment media appeared to work overtime to defend President Joe Biden’s “deteriorated” memory against special counsel Robert Hur’s powerful analysis of Biden’s cognition. The defense is the media’s latest painstaking endeavor to provide cover for Biden, whom Hur detailed as not competent to stand trial for stealing classified documents. Biden is an “elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote in his report on Biden’s wrongdoing. Biden claimed in a press conference his memory is “fine.”

    It was easily one of the notable moments of President Joe Biden's Thursday press conference in which he angrily denounced Special Counsel Robert Hur for highlighting his memory loss several times in his report. Yet Politico neglected to mention how Biden seemingly failed to recall the name of the church he got the rosary from to memorialize his deceased son Beau. Here's that highly embarrassing moment for Biden that shocked viewers yet Politico disingenuously left out of their reports of the press conference.

    CNN reported Monday that Ross, who has been suspended without pay for four weeks, will no longer be allowed to cover stories related to the president. ABC News president James Goldston told staffers, in audio of a call obtained by CNN, that the network’s and Ross’ credibility have been damaged over the mistake. "I don't think ever in my career have I felt more rage and disappointment and frustration that I felt through this weekend and through the last half of Friday," Goldston said.

    Key members of the since-disbanded Select Committee on January 6th admit in a new PBS documentary that the entire operation was an election-year publicity stunt.On Wednesday, Frontline PBS published a new documentary, “Democracy on Trial,” chronicling the House committee’s work. Pivotal players on the partisan probe conceded in the two-and-half-hour documentary that the panel’s public performances produced for prime-time television were orchestrated as entertainment media.“The one thing that we knew was the information that we have is compelling,” said Illinois congressman-turned CNN commentator Adam Kinzinger. “The thing we needed to do was tell that to the American people in a...

    In a year marked by dwindling public trust in key institutions and heralded by the theme “Rebuilding Trust” at the World Economic Forum’s annual Davos assembly, Emma Tucker, the Wall Street Journal’s Editor in Chief, has called for a reevaluation of how traditional media operates. Recalling a point when the mainstream press was the chief adjudicator of information and facts, she highlighted its demise that came with the rise of alternative media platforms. Tucker, during a Davos panel supposedly dedicated to the preservation of truth, offered a lament for the era when the press held exclusive dominance over news and...

    Now that it's an election year, the media spotlight on the dangers of "misinformation" and "disinformation" is starting to shine bright, and oddly enough this kind of thing comes mostly from outlets that have ironically helped spread misinformation while running cover for the Democrats: Disinformation poses an unprecedented threat to democracy in the U.S. in 2024, according to researchers, technologists and political scientists. https://t.co/oWF8f2ypXD — NBC News (@NBCNews) January 18, 2024 "Disinformation" can of course often be defined as things that are true but aren't helpful to the Left's desired narrative. One of the most glaring recent examples of that...
