    WASHINGTON - A new complaint filed Thursday with the Federal Election Commission alleges that a national network of local media websites must register as a political committee because of its ties to a Democratic-aligned group.Courier Newsroom, which includes seven news sites concentrated in presidential swing states,is backed by ACRONYM, a politically active nonprofit run by Democratic strategist Tara McGowan.Federal election laws and regulations do not apply to media outlets unless they are "owned or controlled by" a political party, committee or candidate and are acting as a media outlet rather than a political one.But the complaint, filed by Americans for...

    The establishment media continues to become more and more unpopular — for a very good reason. A major survey came out this week showing deep distrust in the media, and then a top producer at MSNBC and a recently deposed opinion editor from the New York Times aired their own biting critiques. The message from all three is that the media has forfeited professional standards and ethics. The message is correct. “We are a cancer and there is no cure.” That’s what “a successful and insightful TV veteran” told Ariana N. Pekary, who two days ago quit her job as...

    The Christian preacher used as a case in point the resignation of a New York Times staff editor who went against the newspaper's liberal narrative.July 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Popular Christian preacher Franklin Graham stressed the importance of the November presidential election, arguing that “media powers are putting forth every effort to spin the story and sway the thinking of the American people.” Graham commented on the resignation this week of The New York Times op-ed staff editor and writer Bari Weiss. Her resignation, he said, “confirms what many people already have known — The New York Times is biased...
  • Is the Media Engaging in a Form of Psychological Warfare Against America?

    04/29/2020 7:57:17 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 58 replies ^ | April 29, 2020 | Michael Brown
    A recent article written primarily by a medical doctor in Alabama claimed that, “The way in which the media has pushed fear nonstop amounts to psychological warfare against this country.” He added, “If it hasn’t occurred to you that we have heard one story and essentially one story alone for literally two months, well, that should have aroused suspicion.” Is this doctor correct? Or is the media doing its best to be responsible in the midst of an unprecedented crisis? I’m quite confident that nothing I write here will influence what the media is doing for two reasons. First, who...

    Number 76 The Wall Street Journal reports the Navy used a “tarp” to cover the name of the U.S.S. John S. McCain so that President Trump wouldn’t see it on his recent visit to Yokosuka, Japan. (The late Sen. John McCain frequently attacked Trump and cast a deciding vote contrary to McCain’s campaign promise to repeal Obamacare. Trump also attacked McCain and derided McCain’s performance as a soldier in Vietnam where McCain was held as a Prisoner of War.) After the tarp news is reported, reporters quote McCain’s daughter attacking Trump as if he had given the orders to cover...

  • Media pat themselves on the back following implosion of the collusion news cycle

    If you are hoping for an industrywide reckoning in the press following the implosion of the Russian collusion news cycle, you’re going to be sorely disappointed. Media executives are not just unashamed of how their employees have covered this story for the last two years, they are proud of them. CNN President Jeff Zucker, for example, has defended his network’s disastrously flawed coverage of the allegations that President Trump conspired with the Russian government to steal the 2016 presidential election, by claiming his reporters are not investigators. This is not a paraphrase.

    America got conned again. It was all a big set-up. A ruse. A dirty canard. The whole thing was one giant lie. And everybody peddling it — from House Democratic leaders, to Senate Democrats running for president, to the Senate Republican who reported the whole thing in the first place, to the roaring lions of the Great White Media — knew it was a lie. Sure, there are some — take sleazy lawyer Michael Avenatti, for instance — who are so monumentally stupid that he probably did not know that it was all a big con. It is not uncommon...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller has definitively put to rest the collusion theory of President Trump’s election. That’s not a little embarrassing for the many journalists, talking heads, celebrities and instant experts who spent more than two years furiously speculating about Moscow “pee-pee” tapes, treasonous rendezvous and the president’s imminent arrest.Pick your brackets — no, not for March Madness. This is Collusion Madness!

    The national Sunday morning talk shows blamed President Trump for the New Zealand massacre that left 50 dead. CNN’s Jake Tapper warned: “I don’t think moderate Republicans are doing enough to hold President Trump accountable for his rhetoric.” NBC’s Chuck Todd noted supposed parallels to the killer’s rhetoric, and asked: “When the president uses the term ‘invaders,’ does that dehumanize to the point where it can get misused?” The media made Mr. Trump its singular target, but not even Democrats were completely spared from the frenzy of critical reactions. In a viral video, an angry NYU student confronted Chelsea Clinton...

    We shared a discussion thread a few weeks ago about how the media are enmeshed within the entire story of the DOJ and FBI corruption. The media engagements with the parties swirling around the Clinton-Steele Dossier and DOJ corruption are so pervasive they cannot currently report on the story without exposing their own duplicity. Michael Isikoff found that reality yesterday when he discovered his reporting was being used by the FBI. FBI investigator Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page have been shown in their text messages to be leaking stories from the Clinton Investigation, the Trump investigation and the...
