  • The Press Has Lied To Drag The United States Into War Before. Don’t Think They Won’t Again

    When you see corporate outlets rushing us into war in Europe with sensational stories and flat-out dishonest polling, think twice. The night of Feb. 15, 1898, the U.S. battleship Maine sat at anchor in Havana, Cuba. A few minutes after 9 p.m., the nightly ritual of “Taps” from Fifer C. H. Newton’s bugle descended over the ship. Some half an hour later, the forward end of the ship rose suddenly above the water. “Along the pier, passersby could hear a rumbling explosion,” detailed author Tom Miller. “Within seconds, another eruption — this one deafening and massive — splintered the bow,...

    Big Tech billionaires, including Mark Zuckerberg, who already censor comments and news they don’t like, are now coming after your local paper. The group Report for America is placing its hand-selected woke reporters into local newsrooms across America to cover “under-reported” stories such as climate issues. ... Zuckerberg’s company, Facebook (now called Meta), and his and his wife’s charitable foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, are pouring millions into this effort. And it ain’t beanbag. They expect results. Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan spent $300,000,000 taking over elections offices in 2020 with the Center for Tech and Civic Life to tip the...

    ASPEN — A conservative opinion writer who was fired by the Aspen Times after seven years because his ideology was too far right, has won best columnist of the year for the second year in row by the readers of the Times, despite not having a presence in the paper since December 2019. Glenn Beaton said in his blog that on Christmas Eve, 2019, Aspen Times management sent him an email telling him that his values were not what they were looking for in a columnist, despite his column being one of the most read features of the paper, Beaton...

    Media malpractice has come full circle in Kenosha, Wis. ... From the start, the media misrepresented the Blake case and ensuing riots. They portrayed Blake as an unarmed man who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, subjected to police brutality due to racism. The truth was far different. After an intensive investigation, prosecutors declared Blake’s shooting a justifiable use of force. The federal Justice Department reached the same conclusion. ... As with the Black Lives Matter riots in Minneapolis and beyond, the mainstream media incessantly focused away from the violence, despite almost 20 related...

    Joe Rogan and Michael Malice discussed last week why the corporate press continues to dismiss ways doctors can treat Covid-19 aside from vaccination. Rogan said that Dr. Pierre Kory from the Front Line Critical Care Covid group treated him and hundreds of members of Congress with monoclonal antibodies, prednisone, z-pak, NAD, vitamins, and ivermectin. ... 200 Congress people have been treated with Ivermectin for Covid. .. Before there were vaccines, this was a common off-label treatment for Covid. "I do not know the motivation for demonizing this particular medication .. But I would imagine some of it has to do...
  • New York Times issues massive correction after overstating COVID hospitalizations among children

    Fox News ^ | 10/8/2021 | Brian Flood
    Paper added over 800,000 to total of kids hospitalized with coronavirus.. The New York Times issued a massive correction Thursday after the liberal newspaper severely misreported the number of COVID hospitalities among children in the United States by more than 800,000. A report headlined "A New Vaccine Strategy for Children: Just One Dose, for Now," by science and health reporter Apoorva Mandavilli, was peppered with errors before major changes were made to the story. The Times initially reported "nearly 900,000 children have been hospitalized" with COVID since the pandemic began, when the factual data in the now-corrected version is that...

    Larry Sanger, who co-founded Wikipedia in 2001, says that the free online encyclopedia has become “more one-sided than ever” and is dominated by liberal sources in such a way that makes it “an opponent of vigorous democracy.” “Wikipedia openly repudiates neutrality, and therefore it is shamelessly hypocritical in how it continues to pay lip service to its “neutral point of view” policy,’” Sanger wrote on his website last week. “A lot of mainstream news stories are broken only in Fox News, the Daily Mail, and the New York Post—all of which are banned from use as sources by Wikipedia.” “In...

    NY Post - Fox News ^ | June 29, 2021 | Brian Flood,
    The second quarter of 2021 saw viewers ditch CNN and MSNBC in droves as experts wonder if the liberal networks can ever recover from a “serious credibility problem” they created by relying on former President Donald Trump for success while ignoring internal gaffes and scandals. “CNN and MSNBC were one-trick ponies, and that trick was bashing Trump,” Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson told Fox News. “Now that Trump no longer is president, they have tried to keep up the mania, but it’s hard. The audience has disappeared because it never was loyal to CNN and...
  • Denver Post goes blind, didn’t see these violent protestors at conservative summit

    06/23/2021 4:01:36 PM PDT · by george76 · 12 replies
    The Denver Post is either straight up lying or the most incompetent media outlet that covered the Western Conservative Summit over the weekend and resulting protest by leftist whacktivists. Because according to the Denver Post, there was no protest: Compare that headline to The Washington Times’s coverage: Here’s the Denver Post’s “scene one,” Andy Ngo’s speech: As he spoke, several police officers stood sentry in front of the stage to protect him; they left when he left the stage. Ngo is often a target of protests, and Westword reported that a range of progressive groups, including the Denver Communists, would...

    Summit News ^ | 28 May, 2021 | Paul Joseph Watson
    Journalism clown world strikes again. A New York Times reporter who specializes in COVID-19 coverage tweeted that it was “racist” to even talk about the Wuhan lab leak theory. The lab leak issue has received a wave of attention following the Biden’s administration’s announcement that a 90 day investigation would be conducted into its veracity. The NYT itself also reported yesterday that the U.S. intelligence community has been sitting on a “raft” of evidence pertaining to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. However, Apoorva Mandavilli, who in her bio says she reports for the NYT “mainly” on COVID, asserted in a...

    Newspapers from really small towns can still be quite delightful, which is why I still subscribe to the Leelanau Enterprise where all the news is parochial, all sports regional and all politics local. They still have space for human interest stories and local history, unvarnished and largely unretouched by politically correct sensibilities. Stories such as this from a local book, “A Port Oneida Collection: Images, Oral History, Maps,” which chronicles the history of the Charles and Hattie Olsen Farm. The excerpt continues from an earlier installment and picks up with a 1978 letter from the Olsen’s daughter, Virginia, to one...

    Hamas has a long history of using civilians and residential areas as shields to dissuade Israeli attacks, and the media has a long history of ignoring it. May 15, an Israeli airstrike wiped out a twelve-story al-Jalaa building in Gaza City that housed several media outlets, including the offices of the Associated Press and Al-Jazeera. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) maintain that Hamas, the U.S. designated terror group, used the building as a headquarters to obtain military intelligence and weapons developments. IDF spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus defended the airstrike by declaring the fundamental function of this media tower was...

    News Busters ^ | May 18th, 2021 | Nicholas Fondacaro
    As the latest flare-up between the Israelis and Palestinians dragged on, CBS Evening News seemingly wouldn’t be happy until the Jewish State of Israel was pushed into the sea. Tuesday’s edition of their Hamas-friendly coverage featured foreign correspondent Holly Williams scoffing at how two Israeli soldiers were shot by terrorists as Palestinians took part in their “day of rage” in the West Bank. And, of course, she spewed the Hamas propaganda that was fed to her. As she was transitioning to the segment, anchor Norah O’Donnell suggested it was Israel’s duty to de-escalate the situation despite Hamas deliberately targeting Israeli...

    Aleister Crowley, an English ceremonial magician, poet, painter, novelist, and mountaineer of the late 1800s is credited with saying, “To read a newspaper is to refrain from reading something worthwhile. The first discipline of education must therefore be to refuse resolutely to feed the mind with canned chatter." Today’s journalism education is like a stroll through the black lagoon reading communist Pravda.Earlier, Jim McCoy and I wrote about how journalists make up the content of many of their stories to fit their leftist ideology, not the actual event or situation. Since then, things have only deteriorated, except for the saving...

    Back in the good old days, when things were more innocent and simple, the psychopathic Central Intelligence Agency had to covertly infiltrate the news media to manipulate the information Americans were consuming about their nation and the world. Nowadays, there is no meaningful separation between the news media and the CIA at all. Journalist Glenn Greenwald just highlighted an interesting point about the reporting by The New York Times on the so-called “Bountygate” story the outlet broke in June of last year about the Russian government trying to pay Taliban-linked fighters to attack US soldiers in Afghanistan. “One of the...

    Former 9News reporter Lori Lizarraga went on 710 KNUS with Steffan Tubbs this week to discuss her scathing editorial revealing the various forms of discrimination she experienced working at the station. Tubbs asked Lizarraga specifically about what the culture at the station was like after a contracted security guard for 9News, Matthew Dolloff, gunned down conservative activist Lee Keltner at an October rally near Civic Center Park.. “I was not alone in feeling like we had lost our integrity, or our ability to hold other people accountable,” Lizarraga replied. Lizarraga says she unsuccessfully attempted to “hold [9News] accountable from within.”...

    Determined to not let any tragedy go to waste, each of the broadcast networks touted President Biden’s call for gun control on Tuesday following the mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado. But NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt went a step further, trying to browbeat viewers with a claim that America had experienced “more than 100” such shooting in “the last 20 years.” But back on November 8, 2018, the network claimed there were 307 mass shootings in the first 10 months of the year alone...

    Washington -- I was right. I have been right for over 50 years. Through those at times lonely years, I have been patronized by affluent magazines and newspapers for setting up The American Spectator as an organ of opinion that eschewed making a profit. I would cover our expenses in other ways. I did not ignore making a profit, but I had studied the plight of intellectual reviews and recognized that an intellectual review -- like a symphony orchestra, like a museum, like a think tank -- rarely makes a profit. There simply is not a large enough audience to...

    NY Post ^ | February 13, 2021 | Jon Levine
    About half of New York Times employees said in a recent internal survey that they don’t believe they can speak freely at the paper. In response to the statement, “There is a free exchange of views in this company; people are not afraid to say what they really think,” only 51% of Times employees responded in the affirmative. ... The survey results were revealed to The Post as the former paper of record is embroiled in a seemingly endless parade of scandals. Most recently, a decision to oust veteran science reporter Donald McNeil over his non-derogatory use of a racial...

We all know that we also ‘lost’ stories because we moved too slowly,” he continued. “Teams waited for somebody to back-read a piece or ignored the requests from the News Desk to get a blast out quickly. Managers spent too much time setting up conference calls when they should just have been writing. Or teams suddenly delivered enterprise pieces that nobody wanted. “Covid has highlighted...
