  • WaPo Repeats Claims that Israel Harvests Palestinian Organs

    David Horowitz Freedom Center ^ | 23/1/24 | Hugh Fitzgerald
    One of the preposterous charges made against Israel by the Palestinians is that the Jewish state “harvests the organs” from dead Palestinians. This is a variant on the medieval blood libel that accused Jews of using the blood of Christian children in making matzos. Think of Little Saint Hugh of Lincoln, and William of Norwich — two children whose deaths were falsely attributed to Jews wanting to use their blood, which led to pogroms being unleashed against local Jewry in medieval England. But the Palestinian charge was apparently not preposterous enough for the Washington Post, which reported the charge as...
  • Why does The Washington Post hate homeschooling?

    Christian Post ^ | 01/19/2024 | John Stonestreet, G. Shane Morris,
    A pitfall of the fallen human mind is how narratives shape our perception of the world, even outweighing facts and common sense. For example, nuclear power is one of the safest ways to generate electricity. According to the Our World in Data report, nuclear is 99.8% safer than coal in terms of deaths per unit of power. Yet because of three dramatic accidents and the press surrounding them — Three Mile Island in 1979, Chernobyl in 1986, and Fukushima in 2011 — nuclear power is widely perceived as extraordinarily dangerous and in need of claustrophobic regulation. Similarly, a narrative pushed...

    Is The Washington Post in full-scale collapse? A recent look at the numbers provides a fairly convincing answer to that question. According to the report, not only is the Post losing $100 million a year, but it lost over half of its online engagement by the end of 2023. The signs were already there by mid-year, and the worst has come to pass. See: The Washington Post Is Facing a Financial Buzzsaw“Of that audience, less than one in five read more than a single article per month, while less than one in 500 actually convert to a paying subscription.”— Josh...

    The Washington Post in an outrageous article: "The displacement of the largest population in the region since 1948." One of the most important newspapers in the world published a comprehensive article about the human tragedy in the Gaza Strip, but received a lot of criticism • Many criticized the text chosen, with great historical inaccuracy • For comparison, in the wars in Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan a much larger population was displaced • The article completely ignores the use Hamas's cynicism towards the civilian population, and the events of the October 7 massacre.

    The Washington Post Guild, the union that represents roughly 1,000 of the newspaper’s staffers, reached a tentative agreement Friday on a new contract with the Post’s management, a breakthrough after a year and a half of protracted and, at times, contentious talks that spilled into public view. “This is without question the best contract the Post Guild has won in half a century,” the union’s bargaining committee wrote in an email to members obtained by CNN. “Though it does not include everything we hoped to achieve, the bargaining committee supports ratifying this agreement, and we believe it will position our...
  • Washington Post Editorial Board: The Supreme Court Should Toss the Colorado Decision

    Hotair ^ | 12/21/2023 | John Sexton
    People (including our own Ed Morrissey) have been saying this since the decision appeared Tuesday but I’m still a bit surprised to see the Washington Post‘s editorial board making the same case. After laying out the basis of the Colorado decision under the 14th Amendment, the board points out “the law is not so clear.” The board argues that section 3 of the Amendment should probably apply to the president (which is what the Colorado Supreme Court found) but says that doesn’t really matter unless you’ve also concluded that President Trump did in fact commit insurrection in connection with Jan....

    The White House so far does not seem to be buying into the temper tantrums on the highways, the obnoxious behavior at so many colleges and universities, and the puerile nonsense of unsigned petitions and vigils by those ashamed to show their faces or reveal their names. We get the largely unreadable Washington Post because my husband must have a hard-copy paper with a sports section to read with his morning coffee. To say its reporting stinks is to overpraise it. Still, Saturday morning I saw the first glimmer of actual reporting, relegated as it was, nevertheless, to the ever-lefty...

    Fox News ^ | 12/13/23 | Jeffrey Clark
    The Washington Post editorial board admitted that the Justice Department has a "strong criminal case" against Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden's son, and argued that Hunter's involvement in Burisma was a scandal. "The Justice Department has strong criminal cases against Hunter Biden for allegedly failing to pay federal taxes, claiming false deductions and lying about his drug use on paperwork to buy a gun," the editorial board argued. "Congress, by contrast, lacks any reasonable basis for moving forward with impeachment against President Biden over his son’s dubious business dealings and personal conduct." The editorial board criticized Hunter for his involvement...

    I have stayed away from this subject for eight years; however, everyone in/around U.S. politics knows the Washington Post, owned by Big Tech Amazon, is effectively the PR firm of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). No one inside the DC beltway does not understand this basic truth.... Therefore, when the husband of State Dept official Victoria Nuland, a man named Robert Kagan, writes an op-ed in the CIA newsletter, effectively calling for President Trump to receive the Julius Caesar treatment, the non-subtle message is for the CIA to repeat their Kennedy performance and kill President Trump. As alarming as this...

    The Washington Post's Leigh Ann-Caldwell said Sunday that "Bidenomics" has become a "negative word" within the Democratic Party as President Biden has struggled to get his economic message across to translate with voters. NBC News "Meet the Press" host Kristen Welker asked Caldwell about Biden's "low marks" on the economy. She added that Democrats believe he needs to shift away from the "Bidenomics" messaging. "'Bidenomics'’ has really become a negative word, especially among Democrats because it’s not working," she said. Caldwell said she was texting with some Democratic lawmakers over the weekend and that they said it was "not looking...

    On Oct. 7, 2023, more Jewish civilians were slaughtered than at any point since the Holocaust. More than 1400 Israelis were brutally murdered by Hamas and other Gaza-based Iranian proxies in barbaric fashion.Children were burned alive, toddlers shot in car seats and cribs, parents tied up and tortured in front of their children, their eyes, feet, fingers, and hands cut off. Women were raped on the corpses of their dead friends before being executed, the elderly shot in their living rooms. And much of it was live streamed by terrorists who were exceedingly proud of their work, as they perpetrated...

    Yahoo.com ^ | 10/12/2023 | Corbin Bolies
    Reporters at The Washington Post wanted answers about major job cuts during a contentious one-hour meeting Wednesday with top brass. The paper announced on Tuesday that it would be offering buyouts, with the aim to cut 240 jobs from the newsroom. But management offered little clarity about who would be affected or why the cuts were necessary. A day later, Post journalists pressed their interim CEO on why their jobs were on the chopping block, with reporter and Guild president Katie Mettler telling Stonesifer she was frustrated by reporters “bearing the consequences of very poor decisions” made by management. Interim...

    A Washington Post columnist who once led the paper’s international opinions section lent support this week to those kidnapping, raping, and killing Israeli citizens. Karen Attiah, a prominent journalist, echoed a social media post by a fringe Somali that said, “what did y’all think decolonization meant? vibes? papers? essays? losers.” The X post suggests that those on the Left who bandy about terms like “decolonization” but don’t support the terrorism of Hamas are hypocrites, and that that is exactly what the leftist academics are pushing for with that language. She reposted someone else elaborating on that same thought: “All my...

    A Washington Post poll shows former President Trump beating His Fraudulency Joe Biden by ten points, and that has given left-wing propagandist Larry Sabato a serious case of the sadz. Sabato, an unhinged Trump hater, also got a case of the madz that was so acute he became a danger to democracy by questioning the oh-so-precious corporate media. Let’s not forget that questioning the media puts us all at risk. That didn’t stop the disgraced Sabato, who said the Washington Post should’ve risked democracy itself by not publishing the poll. Yes, Sabato is such a fascist he admits that if...

    After working with him in the Clinton White House, if there is one Democrat I know inside out, it is my former colleague George Stephanopoulos. The recent ABC/Washington Post poll showing Trump 9 points ahead of Biden bears all of his fingerprints. After years of seeing polls deliberately skewed against Trump to discourage people from backing or donating to him, we new have the spectacle of a poll biased for Trump, likely designed to force Biden out of the race. Democrats had hoped that the Trump indictments would hobble the GOP front-runner. But, instead, they have energized his base, essentially...
  • After Bad New Poll, Scarborough Trashes 'Fools' Who Write Biden Off (But He Did in 2020!)

    So much of the focus nowadays is on Joe Biden's mental impairment and shaky memory. But perhaps Joe Scarborough should have his own noggin checked out. Because he seemed to have suffered a stunning memory lapse on today's Morning Joe. Scarborough spent the first segment whistling past the graveyard of the disastrous Washington Post/ABC News poll showing Biden losing by nine points to Trump, and then went on to trash the "fools" who thought they were "truth tellers" suggesting doom for Biden in 2020 and 2022. Scarborough somehow forgot that among those people writing off Biden was . . ....

    A Washington Post-ABC News poll has found that President Biden is struggling to gain approval from the American public. Dissatisfaction is growing over his handling of the economy and immigration, and there are concerns about his age as he seeks a second term. The poll also suggests that Biden and former President Donald Trump could face a rematch in the 2024 election, although more than three in five Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents say they would prefer a nominee other than Biden.Biden’s advisers argue that he is the strongest Democrat for 2024, as there is no consensus among those who wish...
  • New York Times and Washington Post BOTH run op-eds branding Biden, 80, too old for office with NYT raising specter of him dying before retiring like Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    The New York Times and Washington Post both published opinion pieces Wednesday branding 80-year-old President Joe Biden as too old to run for re-election in 2024. It comes as Biden faces an impeachment inquiry and recent polling numbers show most consider the president at too advanced an age to serve again. Ross Douthat, a conservative op-ed writer for the liberal Times, penned a piece titled '2024's Field of Nightmares,' a reference to the 1989 film Field of Dreams. He said while his concerns with Biden come down to run-of-the-mill political disagreements during his first term, Democrats are playing with fire...
