    In October 2020 when news of Hunter Biden's infamous laptop broke, which contained salacious details about his close business partnership with his father Joe Biden, National Public Radio quickly worked to bury the story. In fact, the outlet issued a lengthy explanation about why the laptop was a "non-story" and "waste of time," despite receiving millions of dollars in taxpayer funding each year through as series of federal grants. https://twitter.com/NPRpubliceditor/status/1319281101223940096Why haven't you seen any stories from NPR about the NY Post's Hunter Biden story?

    VIDEOThus far there has been NO APOLOGY from PBS correspondent Nick Schifrin for spreading DISINFORMATION about the Hunter Biden laptop. Watch Nick Schifrin spread FAKE NEWS about the laptop in October 2020. Nick, you need to PROFUSELY APOLOGIZE for spreading DISINFORMATION that resulted in ELECTION INTERFERENCE or quit the journalism business, preferably both.

    There is an annoying guest at Thanksgiving dinner this year: inflation. The turkey, the stuffing, the cranberry sauce — everything has gotten a lot more expensive. The Farm Bureau puts the total cost of the traditional ingredients at more than $80, an increase of about 40% over 2020.But inflation doesn't have to win Thanksgiving. Some of NPR's most intrepid business reporters set out on a mission to prove it, by taking on classic Thanksgiving dishes and finding substitutions that cost what those dishes cost in 2020.

    Remember "funemployment?" That was a concept introduced during the Obama administration during 2009 to make people feel better about rampant unemployment by portraying it as a fun thing.Well, flash forward to the inflationary era of 2022 during the Biden administration and National Public Radio has come up with something similar. Not the "Whip Inflation Now" (WIN) of the 1970s but more of an upbeat version that makes inflation sounds like a creative challenge or Winflation. And as part of the Winflation challenge, NPR has come up with what they think are creative ideas for whipping inflation during Thanksgiving dinner. Picture...

    The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency on Friday formally declassified an image then-US President Donald Trump tweeted in 2019 of a highly classified satellite photograph depicting the site of a failed Iranian rocket launch. NPR reported that the NGA declassified the image after a “grueling Pentagon-wide review to determine whether the briefing slide it came from could be shared with the public” in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from the radio network. Many details on the original image remain redacted – a clear sign that Trump was sharing some of the US government's most prized intelligence on social media,...

    It must have really irked Wisconsin Public Radio to report that Sen. Ron Johnson has been declared the winner of his race, giving him his third term in the upper body. However, rather than simply reporting on the Johnson victory, WPR made sure to let their partisan bias reveal itself in some bitter sliming of Johnson.

    Yesterday’s Midterms were not a victory for conservative or progressive ideology, but an assertion of the growing power of geography in American politics. It was less a national election than a clash of civilisations. Virtually nowhere in blue areas did Republicans make gains. Both the north-east and California – the central players in Democratic Party politics – stayed solidly blue. Even the most well-regarded GOP candidates, such as Lanhee Chen who ran for California state controller, struggled to make inroads in Democratic territory. Meanwhile, the senators and governors of the leading red states – Texas’s Greg Abbott, Georgia’s Brian Kemp,...

    For your daily laugh that NPR calls their evening newscast All Things Considered, on Saturday night they celebrated the new pro-abortion movie Call Jane with actress Elizabeth Banks. Over eight and a half minutes, NPR host Michel Martin had no difficult or challenging questions, just facilitations. Martin asked "How did this project come about and what attracted you to it?" And: "Do you have somebody in mind that you hope will see this film? And what are you hoping people will take away from it?" But the starkest answer came when Martin asked about making the movie just before the...

    NPR listeners heard a baby being killed in an abortion as the mother moaned and cried during a morning news report Thursday. The shocking audio came from an abortion facility in Michigan where an NPR journalist watched an abortionist perform an 11-week abortion. NPR is a taxpayer-funded news organization. “I almost didn’t want to tweet this but it’s something everyone needs to know,” XStrategies’ Greg Price wrote, sharing a 2-minute segment of the report on Twitter. “NPR on the radio this morning played audio of a woman getting an abortion. You can hear the vacuum turning on, crying, moaning, and...

    A California professor and former CIA analyst said that white Christian men are poised to start a civil war in America Barbara F. Walter, author of the 2022 book How Civil War Starts, made her inflammatory comments on PBS Tuesday evening while speaking with anchor Hari Sreenivasan. Walter's remarks come just days before the midterm elections, which the left and right alike have been characterizing as a battle over democracy itself. Sreenivasan asked Walter - who said she studied foreign nations on the brink of civil war for the CIA - how far off a war within the US could...

    Prosecutors of Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz called for an investigation Friday after a juror said another panelist threatened her during the deliberations that ended with a life sentence for Cruz's murder of 17 people four years ago at Parkland's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Prosecutor Carolyn McCann told Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer during a brief hearing that prosecutors are not trying to invalidate Thursday's jury vote and reported the threat only for safety reasons and so the Broward County Sheriff's Office can investigate. In their written motion asking for the hearing, prosecutors said the juror told them another juror...

    Even the meanest of intellects can see that something like a Narrative™ exists. Sometimes we call it “the current thing.” Some call it the “hive mind.” The edgier on the internet refer to the “non-player characters” (NPCs), comparing the people apparently mindlessly parroting the accepted Narrative™ as if they are pre-programmed characters in a video game. As if they have no will of their own. It’s impossible not to notice, though. When certain issues come up, anybody deviating from a certain position is viciously attacked and “cancelled.” The enforcers come from a certain economic or social class (“The Elite™), and...

    Leftist hacks at a National Public Radio affiliate spewed wild hyperbole at a GOP congresswoman by arbitrarily connecting her to the “nudist activist” who attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband. Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) tweeted Oct. 28 following the attack on Paul Pelosi that she wished for “a full recovery” for him “from this absolutely horrific violent attack” in his home. Pelosi was reportedly taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery to repair a skull fracture following the incident. Stefanik said the suspect, identified as David DePape, “should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.” North Country...

Thursday on MSNBC, former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean said, “I’ll make this prediction right now. We’ll pick up two to three in the Senate and pick up the House. We will pick up seats in the House and not lose them.”

    Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is asking the state's Supreme Court to investigate New York Attorney General Letitia James for publishing a report claiming he sexually assaulted multiple women during his tenure. Cuomo claims James manipulated the investigation in order to pursue her own run for governor, failed to appoint independent investigators to the case and omitted crucial evidence from her report released last August. Cuomo argued James's press conference announcing the findings of the report "was meant to be prejudicial and highly inflammatory, and to villainize me in the public eye, and to mislead the public and the...
  • Ken Burns Distorts FDR’s Policy on Jewish Refugees

    09/19/2022 7:52:15 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 81 replies
    If you’re going to make a documentary film about America’s response to the Holocaust, shouldn’t you at least know how many Jewish refugees were admitted to the United States during those years? Surprisingly, filmmaker Ken Burns appears to be unaware of that basic information—or is for some reason seeking to misrepresent the facts. Burns has announced that his forthcoming film will challenge the “myth” that President Franklin D. Roosevelt abandoned Europe’s Jews. That remarkable assertion flies in the face of the historical record that numerous scholars have thoroughly documented. Nonetheless, in recent interviews, Burns has claimed that during the Roosevelt...
