  • Why is the mainstream media so gentle to Joe Biden?

    ... Biden’s pattern of gibberish If you expect a president to be able to speak coherently about the matters of the day ... Biden is not your man, at least not consistently. That’s simply a fact. The bigger issue is whether his speech is a reflection of an increasingly disordered brain. He interrupts himself in mid-sentence and goes on extended riffs, introducing new subjects that seem to have nothing to do with what he was just talking about. He is sometimes impossible to follow. And he can get quite irascible. He is in some ways the absolute verbal opposite of...
  • Acosta Intercepts Ivanka, Watch Him Get Blown Off and Left in the Dust

    01/22/2020 5:10:26 AM PST · by rktman · 20 replies ^ | 1/21/2020 | Jared Harris
    Well-known CNN personality Jim Acosta tried to intercept Ivanka Trump this week, but was expertly boxed out as her security detail left the reporter in the dust. The network’s chief White House correspondent confronted the first daughter Tuesday in Davos, Switzerland. Ivanka Trump and her father, President Donald Trump, were in the European nation for the World Economic Forum. But instead of asking about the state of the world’s finances, it seems Acosta had a different agenda. The CNN reporter hounded the first daughter and senior White House adviser as she descended a set of stairs, asking her about her...

    I love just about all Clint Eastwood movies, but Richard Jewell is in a class by itself. This one was personal. This one Clint Eastwood made for me. Only a handful of people in America know what it’s like to be Richard Jewell and unfortunately, I’m one of them. Mr. Eastwood got it right. Two thumbs up! I rarely ever go to the movies. Nearly seven years after my acquittal in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, I still have to be very cautious about where I go. A few years ago, a man took a shot at me and...
  • The Convenience of Media Outrage and Hysteria

    01/19/2020 3:55:48 AM PST · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | January 19, 2020 | John Dempsey
    What will the mainstream media breathlessly report today? Will the daily hysterics be over Iran? How about how the Senate treats impeachment? Are left-wing activists going to protest the weather? Or, is there going to be a meltdown over a tweet? Does it matter? Actually, no. Few people genuinely care about what the left-wing media is hyperventilating over today. The reason is that no one cares anymore. After almost four years of palpitations, it is evident that the legacy media reports hysteria – not the news. As a young boy, my dad told me a story called "The Boy Who...

    As our once-great nation sinks deeper and deeper into the murky abyss of Trumpism, one brave cadre of dedicated Americans is fighting to keep our foundational ideals alive: firefighters. No, not the firefighters who merely run into burning buildings and save human lives. Any lunkhead can do that. I'm talking about the real firefighters, the journalists who fight the metaphorical fires that threaten to destroy our democracy. These stalwart guardians of the truth are under attack like never before, and we all owe it to them to bear witness to their heroic struggle. As you may have heard, yesterday Arizona...
  • (NBC News) Trump voters motivated by racism may be violating the Constitution. Can they be stopped?

    NBC News ^ | 1-17-2020 | Noah Berlatsky
    If the Trump era has taught us anything, it's that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth. Donald Trump ran an openly racist campaign for president, calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, regularly retweeting white supremacists and at least initially balking at repudiating former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Trump made it clear in his campaign that "Make America Great Again" meant that America was greater when white people's power was more sweeping and more secure. White voters approved of that message by a whopping 58...

    President Trump scolded CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta for attempting to cut in during a news conference in the Oval Office on Thursday. Many of the media's questions involved the articles of impeachment being delivered to the Senate earlier in the day as well as the various claims made by Lev Parnas, an associate to Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. "I don't know him. I have never had a conversation that I remember with him," Trump said about Parnas. It was then that Acosta tried to squeeze in his own questions,... ~snip~ "Quiet," the president told Acosta, and...
  • Iran So Far Away

    As proof that they would asphyxiate themselves if Donald Trump endorsed oxygen, anti-Trump journalists spent last week praising an Iranian general. General Soleimani’s Revolutionary Guard has been recognized as a terrorist organization, but the adjectives used to describe him by our media included, “revered” and “beloved." Journalists compared him to Elvis Presley and Prince Diana. Judging by their reports, you’d swear these folks watched ARGO and wept when the hostages escaped. But why did they become “useful idiots” for Iran? Why did they share propaganda from Iran’s PR team and pass it off as news? To deny the President...

    CNN debate moderator Abby Phillip asked Bernie Sanders in the Tuesday debate in Des Moines: “CNN reported yesterday — and Senator Sanders, Senator Warren confirmed in a statement — that, in 2018, you told her you did not believe that a woman could win the election. Why did you say that?” Not “did you say that,” but “why did you say that?” Sanders denied it, then listed the many reasons the story makes no sense: He urged Warren herself to run in 2016, campaigned for a female candidate who won the popular vote by 3 million votes, and has been...

    Rudy Giuliani’s associate Lev Parnas told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow during an interview scheduled to air Wednesday that President Trump "knew exactly what was going on” with the efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate former vice president and 2020 rival Joe Biden. Parnas made the comments in response to Maddow’s question of what was the “main inaccuracy or the main lie being told that you feel like you can correct.” The associate responded: “That the president didn’t know what was going on. President Trump knew exactly what was going on. “He was aware of all of my movements,” he added. “I...

    In my last column, “Newsweek Hits a New Low,” I wrote about Newsweek’s dishonest description of what I had said on one of my weekly PragerU “Fireside Chats.” A viewer had asked me to respond to a statement Anne Frank made in her epic Holocaust diary. Frank said, “Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart.” The Newsweek headline, “Conservative Radio Host Ridicules Anne Frank,” was simply a lie. In order for readers to appreciate the level of mendacity, I had my entire response transcribed and placed it in the column. A few days later I received...

    The left wing media last week: The people of Iran love Soleimani and Khamenei! This week: Who knew they hated Soleimani and Khamenei? But it's still Trump's fault! Donald Trump has frequently referred to the left wing media as the "enemy of the people." They then cry about it and whine about a free press but then go on to prove Trump was right. The press shoved down our throats the notion that the people of Iran loved Qasem Soleimani despite him killing 1500 Iranian protesters last November. Chris Matthews likened Soleimani to Elvis and Princess Diana. The press was...

    CNN will pay $76 million in back pay to a group of former video contractors whose contract was terminated in 2003, according to a settlement signed Friday. The money, which will go to more than 300 former contractors, is the largest monetary remedy in the history of the NLRB and is more money than the board typically collects in an entire year, according to its news release. The workers were represented by two union locals of the National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians-Communications Workers of America when CNN terminated the contract. The news channel then hired nonunion employees to...

    Anti-immigrant author and activist Peter Brimelow is suing The New York Times for $5 million for dubbing him an “open white nationalist” in an article last year. Brimelow, who runs a website that has published pieces from white supremacists, is suing The Times over a January 15, 2019 article that detailed the chronology of racist comments from Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa). The story briefly mentioned Brimelow and noted that he and the lawmaker had appeared on a panel together at the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference. Brimelow accused The Times of performing a “stealth edit” to the initial version of...

    Over the past few weeks, the media have been singing in 100-part harmony that America is headed to war. From Fox News and CNN, to MSNBC and the New York Times, media magpies have been proclaiming that America is going to war with Iran, thanks to the rube-in-chief who has no idea what he is doing. The New York Times declares the U.S. and Iran are, “At the edge of war.” The Wall Street Journal at least asks, “Will the U.S. and Iran blunder into war?” The Washington Post acknowledges that, “War with Iran is not inevitable” except for Orange-Man...

    A US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus completely shutdown a far-left CNN International anchor with three facts that left the CNN anchor speechless. The cocky CNN anchor, Becky Anderson, was either completely ignorant of what she was reporting on or flat out lying. However, this is CNN who also on Tuesday evening lied about the President’s activity after the missile attack so both could be true. [transcript at link] -snip-

    CNN International anchor Christiane Amanpour spoke with Iranian vice president for women and global affairs Massoumeh Ebtekar on Tuesday but failed to mention Ebtekar played a key role in the 1979 Iran hostage crisis. Amanpour began by asking Ebtekar if Iran would “respond” to American calls for de-escalation, and critics didn't appreciate her lengthy answer. “Ebtekar took that question and offered a long-winded answer that gushed over CNN showing ‘millions who are marching in support and in commemoration of...the Commander of the Hearts’ against the Americans having ‘taken a terrorist action’ in ‘assassinat[ing]’ Soleimani,” NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck wrote....

    The Washington Post blasted CNN for its track record on the infamous anti-Trump dossier following last month's release of the Justice Department watchdog's report on the foundation of the Russia investigation, demanding the network "come clean" on its faulty reporting. In his latest of an ongoing series tackling the media's handling of the dossier, Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple took aim at the anti-Trump network on Monday for continuing to "stand by" its past reporting on the salacious document that was used in the highly controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application process to wiretap former Trump campaign adviser...
