  • Panicked Media Matters Gives CNN the Fox News Treatment After Chris Licht Begins Overhaul

    Legal Insurrection ^ | September 8, 2022 at 03:00pm | Stacey Matthews
    “The message Licht’s firings send to CNN journalists is crystal clear: Too much criticism of the right, which remains united behind Trump and champions the election denial that triggered the January 6 insurrection, may cost you your job.” Though there has been plenty of understandable skepticism from Republicans that CNN’s new head honcho Chris Licht would follow through on his promise to move the network away from its rampant liberal bias, recent actions by Licht indicate that the overhaul is already underway. For starters, the Brian Stelter-hosted Sunday show “Reliable Sources” was literally canceled last month. Along with it, Stelter...

    Daily Dot via MSN ^ | April 12, 2022 | Claire Goforth
    A University of Pennsylvania Law School professor's comments to Tucker Carlson have ignited a firestorm of criticism. Amy Wax told Carlson that "American Blacks" and non-Westerners feel "resentment, shame, and envy" toward Westerners for their "outsized achievements and contributions." Wax also referred to India as a "shithole" and said non-Western immigrants shouldn't criticize America because their countries are inferior. Nikki McCann Ramírez, senior research director at Media Matters for America, posted two clips of the exchange on Twitter. In fewer than 24 hours, the clips are approaching a cumulative 2 million views. The first begins with Carlson asking Wax about...

    The father of cancel culture, who worked closely with David Brock of Media Matters, has died tragically. Hillary Clinton said she was “devastated” after the father of cancel culture, famous media critic, 57, Eric Boehlert died when he and his bike collided with a train in Montclair, New Jersey. The 57-year-old created the Press Run website and wrote for Rolling Stone and Media Matters for America, among others. Many reporters and blue checks are mourning his loss. He was very good at what he did. Boehlert leaves behind a wife and two children. He was prominent among the Left, especially...

    When this story broke today that John Hynansky received a taxpayer funded $20 MILLION loan to build two luxury car dealerships and expand others in the Ukraine, Conservatives decried it and Media Matters bashed Conservatives. Media Matters says the loan by Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) is not taxpayer funded. The truth is, it all depends on what the meaning of "self-funded" is. Photo: John Hynansky Hynansky is a close friend and contributor to Joe Biden's political adventurers as well as a contributor to Barack Obama, so a $20 MILLION loan with US taxpayer funding to be sent overseas, made a...

    Media Matters for America, a George Soros-funded organization that attempts to censor conservative media, complained Thursday that Andrew Breitbart’s original 2012 attack on Critical Race Theory “appears to be working,” nine years later.Media Matters’ Spencer Silva notes that today’s backlash against Critical Race Theory in communities all across America began with Breitbart News drawing attention to the doctrine, then a “little known academic study of systemic racism.”Critical Race Theory is a doctrine that claims all the political, social, and economic institutions of the United States are inherently racist because they were developed during a time when black people could be...

    Frontpagemagazine ^ | Feb 23, 2021 | Joseph Hippolito
    In a matter of just five days, two separate incidents demonstrated the collusion used by the powers-that-be to control thought. On Feb. 5, Mike Lindell, who founded MyPillow, released a two-hour documentary, "Absolute Proof," providing detailed evidence of fraud during the Presidential election. On Feb. 10, the House of Representatives' impeachment managers showed a video of the bedlam at the Capitol on Jan. 6, bedlam they accused President Donald Trump of inciting. Once Lindell released his documentary, Google and Wikipedia attempted to manipulate his search results and biography, respectively. Two days after the impeachment managers released their video, David Schoen,...

    Parler has been in the news quite a bit over the past year. The social media company has seen a remarkable increase in users as conservatives face increased censorship on other platforms. Oddly enough, the corporate press has taken a bizarre interest in Parler and its increased membership. Left-leaning news outlets would have you believe that their objection to the social media site is related to misinformation and conspiracy theories. But it seems that it might be something else that has motivated their hysteria over the app. Politico recently published a piece noting the rise of Parler acknowledging its recent...

    Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon predicted that the globalist structure trying to steal the presidential election will be defeated inside of two weeks as election fraud evidence continues to pour in. On his show War Room: Pandemic Tuesday, Bannon reminded his audience that Big Tech and the media’s efforts to silence him and other truth-tellers from speaking out about election fraud will fail. “Everybody, I want to reiterate, you’re changing world history,” Bannon said. “This is why they’re trying to shut down the show, this is why they’re trying to suppress your voice.” “And here’s the reason: Donald...

    2 HOURS AGO · PUBLIC I get so tired of these sleazy know-nothing "reporters" like the New York Times clown Tiffany Hsu. The CDC data is clear. I did not make it up. It states that 6% of the now over 200,000 of those who died of the coronavirus died just from the virus, while 94% had comorbidities -- that is, 94% had life-threatening underlying issues such as severe heart disease, diabetes, etc. (The list of comorbidities is also provided by the CDC.) Obviously, 200,000 individuals did not die solely or even primarily from the coronavirus, but some subset of...

    Fox News host Mark Levin disputed the notion the novel coronavirus killed 200,000 people in the U.S., referring to the grim figure from health officials as “the biggest lie this century.” The conservative commentator rejected the death toll during Wednesday’s episode of his syndicated radio program and podcast fresh on the heels of having interviewed President Trump on his Fox show days earlier. “We’ve hit — they say — an ominous number, ladies and gentlemen. Two hundred thousand people have died from the coronavirus. That is the biggest lie this century,” he told listeners of “The Mark Levin Show.” “Two...

    The day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, Linda Sarsour ascended the global stage at the Women’s March on Washington. Although not as famous as other speakers — Madonna, Michael Moore, Gloria Steinem, Ashley Judd, Angel a Davis, Van Jones — she is proving to be equally controversial. Sarsour (shown), a co-chair of the march, is a "Muslim feminist" and well-known Soros-funded activist in New York City, where she is executive director of the Arab Amer ican Association of New York (AAANY) and a director of the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC), a radical migrant-refugee "rights" organization. She is also, say critics, connected...

    A conservative watchdog group filed three complaints against organizations founded and operated by Media Matters founder David Brock. The Patriots Foundation accused Brock’s nonprofit group American Bridge Foundation of violating IRS rules by transferring $2.7 million in tax-exempt assets to a for-profit media company owned by Brock. “We’re calling on the IRS to conduct a thorough investigation of Brock’s organizations and to hold them accountable for all violations,” Patriots Foundation president Craig Robinson said in a statement. Media Matters for America founder David Brock reaped illegal profits through the transfer of millions from a nonprofit he founded to a for-profit...

    A Democratic group expected to spend millions of dollars targeting President Donald Trump received over $100,000 in stock shares from an anonymous donor in a giant Chinese tech company, according to tax filings. American Bridge 21st Century accepted a gift in 2018 of 450 shares into Baidu, a Google-like tech company closely affiliated with China’s ruling Communist Party, according to the group’s 2018 IRS filings. The Washington Free Beacon first reported on the donation Wednesday. It is unclear if American Bridge sold the stocks during the past two years, according to the Free Beacon’s report. Democratic operative David Brock founded...

    President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani earlier this week upheld what has become a conservative tradition: attacking billionaire philanthropist George Soros. “Don't tell me I'm anti-Semitic if I oppose him,” Giuliani, a Roman Catholic, said in an interview with New York magazine that quickly went viral. “Soros is hardly a Jew. I'm more of a Jew than Soros is. I probably know more about — he doesn't go to church, he doesn't go to religion — synagogue.” Among those who did tell Giuliani he was, at the least, spreading anti-Semitic propaganda, was Jonathan Greenblatt, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League....

    HILLARY'S SECRET WAR The gelding of Rupert Murdoch Posted: July 14, 20051:00 a.m. Eastern Editor's note: The following is an eye-opening look into New York Times best-selling author Richard Poe's revealing book, "Hillary's Secret War." Whereas Edward Klein's book on the New York senator reveals previously unknown aspects of her personal life, Poe's expose focuses on how Hillary Clinton and the left's "shadow government" have labored to put her and her far-left agenda in the White House by controlling the still-uncensored flow of real news to Americans – via the Internet.If that sounds too fantastic to be true, read...

    Records recently posted online by the FBI indicate that it did little to investigate allegations from private sources connected to Republicans about a scheme in which associates of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to exploit their connection to her to profit from the turmoil in Libya in 2011. The FBI received the documents in June 2016, around the same time it launched an exhaustive, three-year investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia based, in part, on information from private sources connected to Democrats that in the main would prove to be false – the Steele dossier. ...

    On August 7, the day after Tucker Carlson called America’s white-supremacy problem “a hoax,” the Fox News host announced a weeklong trip “to the wilderness” to fish with his son. Unlike other hosts on the network who’ve come back from vacation to find their airtime filled, Carlson eased back into his routine on Monday with more pedestrian fare, including segments on Joe Biden’s fitness for the presidency and Elizabeth Warren’s Native American misstep. But not all his pre-holiday advertisers joined him upon his return. According to the watchdog group Media Matters for America, in the past 11 days, Tucker Carlson...

    A generalized starter question to move from that point to the more specific... The Dayton shooter liked AOC, Elizabeth Warren, Media Matters, Will Sommers of Daily Beast, Ben Collins of NBC, said he didn't want to have to wait for Socialism and hated Trump and conservatives. The first shooter, the El Paso one, supported UBI and Universal Healthcare and stated these programs might be viaible if millions died. Sounds like population control so as to allocate natural resources. And these (UBI and Universal Healthcare) are hardly right wing issues. So are these two shooters actually Left Wing Supremacists?
