    Trump attacks tech giants for being controlled by ''radical left'' Washington, May 16 (IANS) US President Donald Trump on Saturday once again attacked tech giants like Google, Facebook and Twitter for being controlled by ''radical left, adding that the US administration is working to address the alleged political bias against the conservatives on social media platforms.

  • Bill Maher: Media’s Coronavirus ‘Panic Porn’ Is Going To Get Trump Re-Elected

    Bill Maher went off on the media Friday night during his show “Real Time” on HBO, saying that they need to cut back on their “panic porn” reporting on the coronavirus or else they will end up helping President Donald Trump get re-elected. “And finally, new rule, now that we’re starting to see some hope in all this, don’t hope shame me, you know the problem with non-stop gloom and doom is it gives Trump the chance to play the optimist and optimists tend to win American elections,” Maher began. “FDR said the only thing we have to fear is...
  • Former CNN pundit: Network is officially 'Leftist State Media' after Trump chyron coverage

    CNN’s coverage of Monday’s White House coronavirus press briefing put a harsh spotlight on the network's line-blurring between journalism and agenda-driven opinion, media experts tell Fox News, and even has some wondering if the liberal network has abandoned objective coverage of the president altogether. CNN cut away from Trump’s task force briefing on Monday when the White House aired a brief video designed to combat recent reports that the response to coronavirus didn’t happen quickly enough. CNN host John King quickly called it “propaganda,” which became the phrase du jour for the network during a series of events that one...

    On Monday morning I had a delivery to my apartment from the nearby off-licence - or liquor store, as they say over here. And I put a jokey picture on Twitter of a bottle of gin and eight bottles of tonic, with the caption that at least I had the next week sorted. After leaving the White House Briefing Room on Monday evening following a marathon two-hour 24-minute press conference, I felt I could have knocked off the whole lot in one sitting. This has been the most dizzying, jaw-dropping, eyeball-popping, head-spinning news conference I have ever attended. And I...

    In his bitter, five-year battle with the media, I’m not sure President Trump has ever leveled a more serious charge than he is making right now. He’s turned “fake news” into an indelible slogan. He has called such news “the enemy of the people.” He has suggested that some journalists are traitors. And look, all kinds of media people have said all kinds of terrible things about the president, so there is deep hostility on both sides. But I was still taken aback, in the midst of this virus crisis, when Trump tweeted this the other day:

    Many in the media enthusiastically relish the claim that the United States has more people infected with the coronavirus than China does, even though China's numbers are unreliable. When Donald Trump tweeted this week that the United States had performed more coronavirus tests than any other country, the media were upset. Trump being Trump, he’d also said the United States had done more tests in eight days than South Korea had done in eight weeks. PolitiFact calculated the United States had done 17,582 fewer tests than South Korea during that time period. LiveScience said the United States had done 43,790...

    American Thinker ^ | 03/27/2020 | Andrea Widburg
    There have been a few consistent points that many of those who post at American Thinker have been making. The main point is that the media are deliberately fomenting panic. They do this partly because that’s the nature of media (“if it bleeds it leads”) and partly because most members of America’s media are Trump haters. They would willingly send America into an economic nosedive if it meant routing Trump from the White House. Still, another thing we’ve been highlighting here is that media members are innumerates. They glom onto whatever large, scary, Trump-injuring numbers come their way, and...

    National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday that he wishes the media would "stop pitting" his advisements about the coronavirus against those of President Trump, encouraging people to "look ahead at the challenge we have together." During an interview with Fauci — a leader on the White House Coronavirus Task Force — the host of the Morning on The Mall Podcast, Vince Coglianese, asked if the doctor thinks the media is attempting to emphasize differences of opinions between himself and President Trump. "That is really unfortunate — I would wish that would stop because...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the Trump Administration's point players on the Coronavirus Task Force, is sick and tired of media jackals trying to pit him against the president and create division, discord, and distrust within the president's team and the American people. Fauci appeared on "Mornings on the Mall" on WMAL radio in Washington, D.C., Tuesday morning and he spoke passionately about how the media has mischaracterized his relationship with the president and has tried to drive a wedge between them. "It seems like increasingly a bunch of the questions from the media are designed to create a rift...

    Axios issued a story correction and deleted a tweet suggesting President Donald Trump’s call to explore an anti-malaria drug as a coronavirus treatment caused people to ingest fish-tank cleaner The issue arose after a man died and his wife was put in critical condition in Arizona after ingesting cleaner with chloroquine phosphate as an ingredient, the same drug commonly used to fight malaria. Axios and other outlets connected the incident to Trump’s calls for the U.S. to explore the drug as a coronavirus treatment, which France is already doing.

    One America News Chief White House Correspondent Chanel Rion asked President Trump how he feels about mainstream media organizations being in lock step with Chinese propaganda efforts accusing him of being racist for calling COVID-19 the "Chinese virus." Racism is not the right tool to cover your own incompetence— China Xinhua News (@XHNews) March 17, 2020 Rion led the two-part question by first asking Trump if he considers calling food originating from China as "Chinese food" racist."No, I don't think it's racist. I don't think it's racist at all," Trump replied."On that note, major left-wing news media, even in...

    President Trump criticized Fox News during an interview aired by the network late Wednesday, telling host Sean Hannity he has “difficulties” with some of its programing decisions. Mr. Trump voiced complaints about Fox News near the beginning of a 40-minute phone discussion conducted by Mr. Hannity and shown on the host’s eponymous primetime opinion program. “I have my own little difficulties with [Fox News], if you want to know the truth,” said Mr. Trump. “They put people on that I think are inappropriate and say very, very false things and people don’t challenge them.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews announced his retirement from the network on Monday night after more than 20 years at the left-leaning cable channel. He will be replaced at 7 p.m. by a rotating group of hosts. While Matthews was expected to retire in the near future, the sudden announcement comes amid of a series of recent flaps and controversies. Last Monday, Matthews apologized to Bernie Sanders for comparing his rise in the 2020 campaign to the German invasion of France. "Let me...

    The Trump campaign’s filing of a libel lawsuit against the so-called "extremely biased" New York Times was a "clever" move but the case will likely be “dismissed,” according to Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano. The lawsuit argued that the newspaper's March 27, 2019 op-ed titled “The Real Trump-Russia Quid Pro Quo" amounted to a knowingly false smear intended to "improperly influence the presidential election in November 2020." "They did a bad thing," Trump said at a coronavirus press conference later Wednesday, before hinting at more litigation. "There will be more coming. There will be more coming.”

    Washington journalists are rejoicing that celebrity glitz and glamour are returning with their self-celebrating soiree, the White House correspondents' dinner. They announced that longtime "Saturday Night Live" player Kenan Thompson will host the April event, and Muslim comedian Hasan Minhaj will perform the Republican-bashing "comedy" routine. "The dinner has a serious message, but we also believe it is as important as ever to be able to laugh -- at ourselves, as well as at the people we cover," said White House Correspondents' Association President Jonathan Karl. "I'd argue that humor is more important now than ever." Liberals cling desperately to...
