    When Code Pink protesters demonstrated outside of Jake Tapper's house, calling his coverage of the Israel-Hamas war "negligent" and "pathetic," Tapper's teenage children responded by waving and playing "The Star-Spangled Banner." Video of the incident shows protesters with the activist group Code Pink using megaphones outside of Tapper's D.C. home last week. At least one demonstrator wore a keffiyeh, an Arab headscarf that has become associated with Palestinians. The protesters accused Tapper, who is Jewish, of spreading "Israeli propaganda," and expressed anger that he refused to call Israel's military actions in Gaza a "genocide." Tapper's children, Jack, 14, and Alice,...

    The National Pulse ^ | 6/10/2024 | William Upton
    The consolidation of the corporate media entities continues apace, with CNN set to feature Associated Press (AP) content on its website for the first time in nearly 15 years. CNN staffers fret that the move, pushed by the network’s CEO Mark Thompson, is a prelude to layoffs as the corporate news organization moves away from original reporting. The CNN-AP deal is the latest in a line of schemes to revive the network’s collapsing audience. In late May, it was revealed the network logged its lowest primetime ratings since 1991. According to Nielsen data, the network’s 8 PM to 11 PM...

    IDF spokesman says warning those holding the hostages 'would defeat the purpose' since the terrorists would 'kill the hostages'; CNN takes heat for saying that the hostages were 'released', implying that Hamas freed them. Ran Boker | published: 07.09.24 |14:34 The coverage of Operation Arnon, in which four hostages held captive in Gaza were rescued, aroused interest throughout the world media; But as is typical when it comes to the coverage of the war between Israel and Hamas, it did not go smoothly.. Conricus was forced to answer the obvious to the strange question: "Of course, we cannot anticipate Israel...
  • WATCH: O’Keefe Exposes ABC Producer Revealing Pro-Biden and Anti-Trump Bias, Says Host George Stephanopoulos “***** Hates Trump!”

    Gateway Pundit ^ | June 5, 2024 | Jordan Conradson
    O’Keefe Media Group released a new video on Wednesday, exposing the mainstream media with Nick Cirone, a producer and booker from ABC News’ Good Morning America, who gives a tell-all on how they purposefully give Biden and the Democrats good press but smear and slant their coverage of Trump and “right-wing crazies” negatively. This is something that we all know is true, but they refuse to admit it. Even Cirone seemingly has no idea that what they’re doing is wrong, claiming that “the truth, very overwhelmingly, has a liberal bias.” Good Morning America is hosted by former Bill Clinton henchman...

    The Western Journal ^ | May 23, 2024 | Samantha Chang
    Newsmax anchor Rob Schmitt deftly dismantled the establishment media’s latest contrived smear against former President Donald Trump with a brutal on-air smackdown. The manufactured left-wing outrage erupted Monday shortly after a video created by a Trump supporter was reposted on the former president’s Truth Social account. At the time, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee was in a New York City courtroom, so it seems unlikely he personally shared the post. The ad begins with a narrator asking, “What happens after Donald Trump wins? What’s next for America?” The narrator then reads a series of hypothetical headlines such as “The Economy...

    Alice Stewart, a Republican political advisor and CNN political pundit, passed away at the age of 58. Authorities discovered Stewart’s body outside in Bellevue, northern Virginia, early on Saturday morning, according to a CNN story. Law enforcement believes there was a medical emergency and that there is no evidence of foul play. In a statement, Mark Thompson, the CEO of CNN, praised Stewart for both her career and “political savvy” as well as “her unwavering kindness.” “Alice was a very dear friend and colleague to all of us at CNN,” said Thompson in an email to staff on Saturday. :A...

    ABC News President Kim Godwin stepped down Sunday night following an investigation into her management of her network. The overseer of the network, Debra O’Connell, opened a corporate investigation into Godwin and other senior executives over the growing frustration among staffers, vacant top positions and the drop in ratings at its prominent program, “Good Morning America.” Several people alleged Godwin dedicated more time to her profile than creating success in the news division, and that her mismanagement “shocked” O’Connell, WSJ reported. “I have decided to retire from broadcast journalism,” Godwin said in an email to staff Sunday night, according to...

    After a tumultuous weekend at ABC News, Kim Godwin, the first Black president of a network news division, announced she was stepping down, according to an internal memo sent to staff and obtained by The Daily Beast on Sunday night. Godwin’s resignation is a severe public relations blow for Disney CEO Bob Iger, who until recently was publicly backing her despite numerous reports of growing discomfort within the ranks. Critics said she spent more time promoting herself than she did in the newsroom, according to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported her Sunday announcement that she planned to “retire...
  • ‘Remember Us’: How to Fight Media Bombholing

    Chronicles ^ | 1 May, 2024 | MARK JUDGE
    A couple years ago the journalist Matt Taibbi came up with a telling new term for the way the media works in our time: bombholing. Bombholing is the practice of publishing wild and unsubstantiated stories in the press, then sending those same stories down the memory hole when they turn out to be false. Then the media hits viewers with a new “bombshell,” which makes people forget the old “bombshell.” Viewers are led “from mania to mania.” Taibbi once laid it out in more detail: News in the Trump years became a narrative drama, with each day advancing a tale...

    NY Post ^ | 04/30/2024 | Post Editorial Board
    Proving once again that the press never learns its lesson, the Washington Post graced us this week with a humdinger: “Trump, GOP seize on campus protests to depict chaos under Biden.” This followed a New York Times headline from December, “As Fury Erupts Over Campus Antisemitism, Conservatives Seize the Moment.” In short: Nothing is ever a problem because it’s a problem. It’s only an issue because conservatives “seize” on it, or better yet, “pounce.” But Americans, particularly Jewish Americans, are coming to their own conclusions about how terrifying these protests are.

    NEW YORK — Dan Rather returned to the CBS News airwaves for the first time since his bitter exit 18 years ago, appearing in a reflective interview on “CBS Sunday Morning” days before the debut of a Netflix documentary on the 92-year-old newsman’s life. After 44 years at the network, 24 as anchor of the “CBS Evening News,” Rather left under a cloud following a botched investigation into then-President George W. Bush’s military record. Rather signed off as anchor for the last time on March 9, 2005, and exited the network when his contract ended 15 months later.

    “First, conquer the organs of propaganda,” wrote Karl Marx, who was a genius mob agitator and nothing else. Mob agitators were already a kind of specialty in Prussia, Poland, Russia, and Eastern Europe, but Marx wrote the instruction manual, just as Saul Alinsky did in his Rules for Radicals, which became Barack Obama’s manual for political agitators. SNIP About ten years ago, Tucker Carlson helped to expose a radical propaganda internet list called JournoList, a secret Google group of media influencers who made up the headlines for the next day’s news, in places like the New York Times, the Washington...

    I'm old enough to remember the hubbub over JournoList, a listserv of leftist reporters from different news outlets who convened regularly in a chatroom to strategize how to spin stories and set narratives, such as how to torpedo Gov.Sarah Palin to get Barack Obama elected president. From 2007 to 2010, JournoList was its own echo chamber, as Politico put it at the time. Now the same thing's happening again, with TV lawyers acting as rhetorical wetwork teams covering the trials of their political nemesis, Donald Trump. JournoList was started by Ezra Klein, who now works for the New York Times,...

    The Washington Examiner.com ^ | 4/16/2024 | Timothy P. Carney
    If someone says, “Trust the science!” these days, it’s usually an effort to short-circuit debate over weighty policy issues. “Trust the science” has been deployed in the past five years to prevent debate over COVID school closures and mask mandates, over electric-car subsidies, and over sex changes for boys and girls. For my entire time in Washington, though, “trust the science” has been used to oppose a missile defense system for the United States. For my first 20 years as a journalist, I was told that a missile defense system simply cannot work and that anyone who disagreed was a...

    PBS/CNN’s Christiane Amanpour joined CBS’s Stephen Colbert for her second late night comedy show appearance of the week on the Wednesday installment of The Late Show. The duo freaked out over the possibility of a second Donald Trump term and that the rest of the democratic world is similarly freaked out and over the same issues, such as American pro-lifers allegedly being comparable to Iran and the Taliban. Amanpour informed Colbert that the rest of the world is “watching your election very, very closely because that is really preoccupying them. Having had a collective nervous breakdown the last time. They...

    CBS News Confirmed, launched late last year, is focused on tackling misinformation, including the growing scourge of deepfakes and photos, videos and audio created by generative artificial intelligence. Now, Mahtani will be tasked with figuring out how best to bring its reporting to TV, digital and social platforms. Segments will run on CBS News programs leading up the the 2024 election, and a dedicated streaming show is planned for later this summer. “CBS News Confirmed is the right initiative at the right time,” Mahtani said. “We are witnessing an onslaught of misinformation that makes it harder for people to distinguish...

    MRC Free Speech America ^ | 4/9/2024 | Joseph Vazquez
    NewsGuard discovered that The New York Times was never worth its flawless 100/100 score, but apparently only after MRC Free Speech America repeatedly called it out. NewsGuard finally downgraded The Times’ perfect score Feb.1 to a lukewarm 87.5/100. NewsGuard’s beef with the legacy leftist publication was that it “no longer meets NewsGuard standards for handling the difference between news and opinion responsibly.” Wow, what a revelation! Has the dystopian website traffic cop been living under a rock? The head-turning move by the media ratings firm came after MRC released three studies of NewsGuard’s ridiculously skewed ratings system across three consecutive...

    When President Biden proposed an additional $24 billion in supplemental funding for Ukraine in August, Moscow spin doctors working for the Kremlin were ready to try to undermine public support for the bill, internal Kremlin documents show. In an ongoing campaign that seeks to influence congressional and other political debates to stoke anti-Ukraine sentiment, Kremlin-linked political strategists and trolls have written thousands of fabricated news articles, social media posts and comments that promote American isolationism, stir fear over the United States’ border security and attempt to amplify U.S. economic and racial tensions, according to a trove of internal Kremlin documents...
