    President Joe Biden's administration turned down a plan in late October laid out by COVID-19 testing experts to manufacture and send over 700 million rapid COVID-19 at-home tests to Americans ahead of the holidays, according to Vanity Fair.IU On October 25, according to the report, public health experts from the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, the COVID Collaborative, and the Rockefeller Foundation presented the 10-page plan on a ZOOM call with White House officials. The plan was calling for a "Testing Surge to Prevent Holiday COVID Surge." In order to accomplish that, the experts told the White House...

    Drew's work has been published by The New York Times, The Daily Beast and Vanity Fair Drew, a frequent MSNBC guest whose columns have appeared in The New York Times, The Daily Beast, Vanity Fair and Project Syndicate, took to Twitter amid the breaking news and poked fun at Amess' name. "A perfect last name for a pol who's stabbed at a town meeting.

Hours later, Drew took down the offensive post, adding, "Apols for a lapse. Tweet...
  • Extraordinary revelations about Western scientists colluding to hide COVID’s origins: What’s so shocking is that these weren’t Chinese scientists with guns to their heads

    The dam has broken regarding COVID. Suddenly, theories that this deadly virus originated in a Wuhan lab and that Fauci was deliberately misleading people about it have gone from being castigated as racist conspiracy theories to accepted doctrine. On Thursday, Vanity Fair, a leftist, hysterically anti-Trump magazine published an extraordinary article revealing that the American and British scientific communities deliberately hid China’s role in the virus’s creation.Vanity Fair’s article is entitled “The Lab-Leak Theory: Inside the Fight to Uncover COVID-19’s Origins: Throughout 2020, the notion that the novel coronavirus leaked from a lab was off-limits. Those who dared to push...

    <p>A months long Vanity Fair investigation, interviews with more than 40 people, and a review of hundreds of pages of U.S. government documents, including internal memos, meeting minutes, and email correspondence, found that conflicts of interest, stemming in part from large government grants supporting controversial virology research, hampered the U.S. investigation into COVID-19’s origin at every step. In one State Department meeting, officials seeking to demand transparency from the Chinese government say they were explicitly told by colleagues not to explore the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s gain-of-function research, because it would bring unwelcome attention to U.S. government funding of it.</p>

    It takes no great imagination to determine what is probably the focus of the mind of Vanity Fair's Bess Levin. Even a quick perusal of her articles over the past year reveals her disturbing obsession with Donald Trump 24/7.So obsessed is Levin with Trump that she will even lie in her articles to make up fake quotes about him such as her March 8 screed in which she put a false quote in Lindsay Graham's mouth where he supposedly said, "I'm willing to overlook the fact that Trump has probably beaten a few homeless people to death."Most responsible periodicals would...

    One year ago today, an article of mine at American Thinker became a flashpoint of mainstream media coverage and criticism. Before two weeks had passed, my article was referenced, including with links to it and me in four major articles at the Washington Post, two in the New York Times (one of them on page one – which I exposed as Fake News here), Politico, Vanity Fair, Buzzfeed, New York Magazine, and others. Many of these articles were syndicated and went around the world. The reason for all this fuss was that I was the first one in the national...

    And the Clinton administration enabled him. "I Started to Think This is a Bad Guy": Andrew Cuomo's Biographer on the Governor's Brutish History," a Vanity Fair headline blares. The biographer, Michael Shnayerson, is the author of The Contender, a biography of Cuomo, of which the author on his site writes, “I think the picture that emerges is ultimately a positive one.” In the recent article, he however fusses, “I discovered that much of Cuomo’s M.O. and many of his character flaws… have been evident for years.” Just not so evident that anyone in the media would actually write honestly about...

    Sorry, Vanity Fair. We know you want to get eyeballs on your site but publishing a completely fake news headline is not the way to go.Since Vanity Fair is no Babylon Bee it doesn't even have the excuse of pretending to be satire, especially since the article below the headline is dead serious. "LINDSEY GRAHAM: I’M WILLING TO OVERLOOK THE FACT THAT TRUMP HAS PROBABLY BEATEN A FEW HOMELESS PEOPLE TO DEATH."

    A video editor who shaped the buzzy Lincoln Project ads needling President Trump is no longer affiliated with the Republican organization over a series of past tweets in which he used offensive slang for female anatomy to insult political rivals. Ben Howe, who came of age politically making anti-Obama ads during the rise of the tea party, did not publicly tout his work for the super PAC formed by a group of high-level Republican operatives who have broken ranks with the party over Trump’s presidency until a recent interview with Vanity Fair. He was described in the article as “the...

    What is the difference between liberty and freedom in the eyes of many Americans? Absolutely nothing. And therein lies not only the problem driving the culture war around coronavirus shelter-in-place orders but also arguably the crux of all fronts of America's culture wars, from guns to religion to speech to - now, it seems - haircuts. It is a slippage skillfully leveraged by conservatives. This week in Michigan, armed protesters are heeding the call. But the petulant rallying cries echo across the United States. "Give me liberty or give me death!" - so goes the universal whine, lifted from Patrick...

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and the leader of "the Squad" are reportedly not seeing eye to eye on the campaign trail. New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is reportedly frustrating the Sanders campaign during her appearances at the socialist's campaign rallies. While Sanders was occupied in the Senate during the impeachment trial of President Trump, AOC subbed in for him. However, she did not mention the candidate by name during a January rally, though she endorsed him last October. Vanity Fair reported that Sanders's campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, expressed his frustration to AOC's campaign manager over texts, saying her immigration stances...

    It's pretty much a done deal. President Donald Trump's chances of re-election are almost non-existent. In fact for him to win the 2020 election "might take an act of God." So declared T.A. Frank in Wednesday's Vanity Fair. And if Frank's smug certainty in prognosticating the outcome of the next election sounds familiar, he was just as certain of Trump's 2016 election loss in October of that year. So T.A. Frank 2019, meet T.A. Frank 2016 as we compare the two predictions that made it sound as if both election results were done deals before they actually happened. First let...

    The inclusion of Spanish actor Antonio Banderas as one of the few “coloured” Oscar nominees by some U.S. media has sparked controversy and an immediate reaction from social networks, which have been quick to point out that he is European and white. Hollywood publications such as Deadline and Vanity Fair mentioned Banderas as one of the few cases of “people of colour”” nominated for Oscars, after Monday’s official announcement of the candidates for the Hollywood Academy Awards. Both newspapers cited Banderas along with African-American actress Cynthia Erivo as the only “black” actors nominated for this year’s Oscars, in the face...

    Former House Speaker Paul Ryan, who currently sits on the board of Fox Corp., is reportedly urging Fox News to “decisively break” with President Donald Trump, according to a Thursday Vanity Fair report documenting the network’s “management bedlam.” Vanity Fair’s Gabe Sherman, citing four sources, reported that Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch, who has long tried to move Fox News to the center, “is already thinking about how to position the network for a post-Trump future.” Ryan, the longtime Trump antagonist, has reportedly been suggesting to Murdoch that “Fox should decisively break with the president” as Murdoch holds “strategy conversations...

    The incendiary on air war that broke out earlier this week, pitting several of the most prominent Fox News channel personalities against each other, has cooled off for the moment. The sudden flare-up of simmering grudges between Fox News’s opinion and news sides that finally boiled over into public view involved opinion host Tucker Carlson, news host Shepard Smith, and the channel’s senior legal analyst Andrew Napolitano. The war of harsh words that went back and forth on Carlson’s and Smith’s programs Tuesday and Wednesday, which also involved Carlson’s guest, Republican attorney Joseph diGenova, was unprecedented and was immediately seized...

    “Republican politics are returning America to a past where only the wealthy have access to safe, legal abortion,” bemoaned lefty rag Vanity Fair in an article on Wednesday highlighting the pricey abortion concierge services available to the rich. Author Caitlin Moscatello touted VIP abortions at private clinics and MedSpas that have ritzy waiting rooms with glass chandeliers for those who want “care that’s quick, private, and exclusive.” Often for celebrities, public figures, and the wealthy or their partners, these abortion spas offer a la carte menu upgrade options for purchase, with one “Ultimate VIP” abortion package costing $10,000 for benefits...

    Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman has been following the Jeffrey Epstein case very closely and he reports that as early as the next few days, the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit will release approximately 2,000 pages of documents. According to the court’s three-judge panel, the documents will implicate “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders.” Attorney David Boies, who represents Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, told Sherman the documents were filed during a civil defamation lawsuit brought by Giuffre, a former Mar-a-Lago locker-room attendant, against Epstein’s former girlfriend...

    President Donald Trump plotted his takedown of accused child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s elite inner circle during the 2016 election, convening a meeting with then-National Enquirer owner David Pecker prior to Trump’s comment at CPAC 2015 about how Bill Clinton has a Jeffrey Epstein problem. Vanity Fair reports: “Trump had been following the story closely. In the week or so leading up to his CPAC speech, David Pecker, who owned the Enquirer until it was sold in ruin earlier this year, visited Trump on the 26th floor of Trump Tower, bringing along an issue with a Prince Andrew and Epstein-related cover,...

    When liberal donor George Soros and several other liberal billionaires called for a wealth tax, the media swooned. Soros, Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, heiress Abigail Disney and 15 others wrote an open letter calling on presidential candidates to adopt a wealth tax on the top 1/10 of 1 percent. Vanity Fair was thrilled on June 24, publishing a supportive, hyperbolic account of the “zillionaires’” letter declaring: “Conscience-Stricken Billionaires Beg 2020 Candidates: Take Our Money.” Nevermind criticism that a wealth tax is unconstitutional, the reaction from Vanity Fair, The New York Times and CNN stories avoided tough questions and criticism.
