  • How Woodrow Wilson’s Propaganda Machine Changed American Journalism

    Smithsonian Magazine ^ | APRIL 28, 2017 | Christopher B. Daly
    The media are still feeling the impact of an executive order signed in 1917 that created ‘the nation’s first ministry of information’.. When the United States declared war on Germany 100 years ago, the impact on the news business was swift and dramatic. In its crusade to “make the world safe for democracy,” the Wilson administration took immediate steps at home to curtail one of the pillars of democracy – press freedom – by implementing a plan to control, manipulate and censor all news coverage, on a scale never seen in U.S. history. Following the lead of the Germans and...

    The Federalist, ^ | OCTOBER 19, 2020 | Jimmy Sengenberger
    Forty-nine-year-old Lee Keltner was fatally shot following a “Patriot Muster” protest last Saturday afternoon in downtown Denver, blocks from the Colorado Capitol near the Denver Art Museum. The shooter was an unlicensed security guard with documented far-left ties who was hired by Denver NBC News affiliate KUSA 9News. The story even garnered President Trump’s attention, with multiple retweets on Wednesday. On Thursday, Denver District Attorney Beth McCann, a Democrat, announced she will file second-degree murder charges against Dolloff. While first-degree murder charges in Colorado require evidence of planning and intent to kill, second-degree murder charges imply that “the person knowingly...

    Bentley Media Group ^ | September 11, 2020 | Alex Nitzberg
    Peter Schweizer says that the mainstream media has largely failed to show significant interest in the business dealings Hunter Biden conducted during his father's vice presidential tenure. ... a media double standard by suggesting reporters would more fully cover the story if it pertained to the Trump family. Joe Biden's claim that he never discussed these matters with his son is ludicrous. He and his son are very close. They talk about the fact that they are very close and they talk all the time," Schweizer said during an interview on the John Solomon ... But the mainstream media has...

    The Floridian ^ | August 16, 2020 | Javier Manjarres
    Early voting has just ended in Florida and election day is on Tuesday, August 18th, but that hasn’t stopped CBS12 in Palm Beach County, Florida from posting their election results in the 2020 primary election. President Donald Trump and Republicans have warned of voter fraud and voter suppression in the 2020 presidential election, so could CBS12 pre-election day, election results be a sampling of what is to come in the coming months? How can CBS12 be reporting the election results before election day? Or better yet, why is CBS12 reporting 100% precincts reporting 48 hours before the polls even open....

    The Federalist ^ | JULY 15, 2020 | Tristan Justice
    Days after NBC on-air contributor Dr. Joseph Fair revealed he was lying about his infection with the Wuhan coronavirus, which the network extensively covered, NBC has refused to answer several Federalist inquiries about whether it has disciplined the virologist. Last week, Fair relayed the results of a negative antibody test on Twitter after falling ill two months ago with what he claimed was COVID-19 despite never testing positive for the virus. ... The network gave Fair’s illness generous coverage as a virus-stricken contributor even after Fair tested negative for the virus multiple times but claimed it was the “worst” he’d...

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | December 2, 2019 | Joe Hoft
    Stefan Halper is a crooked Deep State spy and there is ample evidence that proves this. We reported in April 2019 that the far-left New York Times finally mentioned Stefan Halper as an individual of interest in the Russia hoax. We identified Halper nearly a year earlier as a spy for the corrupt Obama administration. ... you get to the 14th paragraph of its article where The New York Times admits the FBI had a spy targeting and meeting with Trump campaign official George Papadopoulos. ... Now we have adequate evidence that not only did Halper spy on numerous Trump...

    After ISIS stunt and a lot of earlier bad reporting, why should we believe anything the Washington Post writes? ( Full title). ... After years of lying to the public why does any newspaper or other media outlet trust and reprint anything that comes from people working for the Washington Post? The Washington Post, in collusion with other Democrats and media outlets pushed the hoax (fraud) on the public that Russia colluded with DonaldTrump in the 2016 election to steal the election from Hillary Clinton, ultimately with absolutely no evidence.

    Even the Gray Lady admits the president is up against a powerful bureaucracy that wants him sunk.. The New York Times on Thursday published a remarkable piece that essentially acknowledged the existence of an American “deep state” and its implacable hostility to Donald Trump. ... American foreign policy has become the almost exclusive domain of unelected bureaucrats impervious to the views of elected officials—even presidents—who may harbor outlooks different from their own. This is a big deal because, even in today’s highly charged political environment, with a sitting president under constant guerrilla attack, few have been willing to acknowledge any...

    The New American Magazine ^ | 01 October 2019 | Bob Adelmann
    When the FBI released its 2018 Crime Statistics on Monday, the silence from the anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment mainstream media was deafening. The Washington Post and the New York Times gave the report short shrift, while the Wall Street Journal ignored it altogether. Apparently the mainstream media isn’t interested in listening to facts and data that contradict their preconceived ideology: More guns equal more gun violence. According to the FBI, exactly the opposite is happening, and has been happening for years: The number of violent crimes committed in the United States continues to drop. Said the report, “In 2018, violent crime...

    Is the New York Times "airbrushing" history again? It would seem so. On Saturday, November 22, Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko presided over a commemoration in Kiev of the 75th anniversary of the famine genocide of 1932-1933 that took the lives of 7-10 million Ukrainians. Known as the Holodomor (Ukrainian for "murder by hunger"), it is one of the greatest mass murders in history, and one of the cruelest ...

    Migrants pushed three 16-year-old Germans in front of train – mainstream media covered up the murders. (Full title). Three young boys were pushed onto the rails at the Nürnberg S-train station Frankenstadion end of January. Two of them were ran over by the oncoming train and killed. German mainstream media spoke deceitfully of “Germans”, in order to cloak a migration background. Furthermore drivel about “accident” and “tragedy” was put out there, and the three 16 year old’s “fell” onto the rails. The Nürnberg News respectfully called the first offender that was arrested a “young man”. ... But on Monday morning...

    The Los Angeles city attorney’s office announced Friday that it has sued the parent company of the Weather Channel, alleging that for years it has misleadingly and unlawfully collected and sold the private data of its mobile app users. In its lawsuit against Time Warner Cable, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, the city attorney’s office claims that the company tracks the exact location of its Weather Channel app users, and then sells that private information to advertisers without its users’ knowledge. “For years, TWC has deceptively used its Weather Channel App to amass its users’ private, personal geolocation data...

    Despite no evidence to back up the allegations of attempted sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the liberal media were eager to make them stick. Comparisons to Justice Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill were wildly thrown around along with suggestions those accusations were true. They were also hopeful for a better result this time. Disgraced journalist Dan Rather admitted as much during a Monday appearance on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time. Disguised under the illusion of seeking “truth”, Rather admitted that the character assassination of Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork in the 1980’s was what happened to Justice...

    Why do the Democrats and the liberal media hate me so much? Because I refuse to stay on their political plantation. For decades, the Democrat-Media Complex has appointed itself the master of truth. They tell black Americans who to love, who to hate and what to believe. In their eyes, we are nothing more than a low-information voting block that will always vote for the Democrat Party. The only difference between the slave masters of old and the liberal media masters of today’s political plantation is that one enslaves the body while the other enslaves the mind. Liberals are the...

    In the coming years, virtually all of us in the conservative movement would find ourselves the targets of such smears, and without mass media outlets of our own, we were virtually defenseless against the charges – our protests simply were ignored. For example, CBS’s Mike Wallace asked conservative radio commentator Fulton Lewis Jr. to explain “the attraction the far Right has for crackpot fascist groups in America.” “Thunder against the Right,” in the November 24, 1961, issue of Time, featured attacks by President Kennedy, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, the Department of Social Action of the National Catholic Welfare Conference, and...
