  • With whistleblower ‘protection’ fake news, media does Trump another favor

    Even on its own terms, the media’s Get Trump project has proved a monumental failure. If the blob of blue-checkmark Twitterati wanted to help President Trump portray the latest impeachment push as a partisan witch hunt, they couldn’t have done a better job than they are now. Consider the latest example: On Sunday, CBS’ venerable “60 Minutes” program reported on Twitter that “the government whistleblower who set off the impeachment inquiry of President Trump is under federal protection because they fear for their safety.” The explosive news seemed to vindicate his opponents’ darkest fantasies about the president: Of course Trump...

    A lawyer for the Ukraine whistleblower blasted CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday for “literally making stuff up” in its reporting about a letter his legal group sent regarding their client’s safety. In its reporting on the letter, “60 Minutes” claimed the whistleblower was under federal protection, even though that was clearly not stated in the letter. In response, the whistleblower’s legal team published the letter and called out “60 Minutes" for their shoddy reporting. “NEWS ALERT: 60 Minutes completely misinterpreted contents of our letter, which is now published online at https://compassrosepllc.com/intelligence-community-whistleblower-matter/ …,” attorney Mark S. Zaid tweeted. “Nor have we,...

    To say that the Democrats are obsessed with race these days is the equivalent of saying the sky is blue. I'm a racist. You're a racist. Donald Trump's a racist. Nancy Pelosi was a racist until she attacked Trump for racism. Your neighbor's a racist. Your insurance broker's a racist. Your dentist's a racist as well as your periodontist. All white males are racist. Some white females are racists, especially those married to white males. Everywhere a racist. Never mind that many of those people have no history of racism. It doesn't matter. Never mind that their families came here...

    Lara Logan, former correspondent for “60 Minutes,” caused a stir last week when, on a podcast called “Mike Drop,” she said that too many in the media have become “political activists.” -SNIP- Journalists are not activists. We may share the passion for a particular cause, but our job is to follow the facts wherever they may lead. We can’t ignore something that reflects badly on a noble cause, as an activist might. We have to care about the means as much as the end because our duty is to search for the whole truth. -SNIP- It is a fact that...

    WASHINGTON — Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said in an interview that aired Sunday that a "crime may have been committed" when President Donald Trump fired the head of the FBI and tried to publicly undermine an investigation into his campaign's ties to Russia. McCabe also said in the interview with "60 Minutes" that the FBI had good reason to open a counterintelligence investigation into whether Trump was in league with Russia, and therefore a possible national security threat, following the May 2017 firing of then-FBI Director James Comey.

    Lara Logan, foreign correspondent for CBS’s 60 Minutes, said Breitbart News offers “the other side” of news media relative to what she described as a mostly left-wing and partisan Democrat news landscape in the U.S. and abroad. She offered her remarks in an interview published last Friday with the Mike Drop podcast, hosted by retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland.Ritland characterized U.S. news media as “absurdly left-leaning” and supportive of Democrats, further describing the status quo of American news media’s left-wing and partisan Democrat biases as a “huge f__ing problem” and “disaster for this country.”Logan concurred, “I agree with that.

    **SNIP** CBS reporter Scott Pelley, who interviewed McCabe for Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” said Thursday that McCabe told him using the 25th Amendment was discussed and that officials were “counting noses” — or speculating on who might support such an endeavor. “There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment,” Pelley said. “And the highest levels of American law enforcement were trying to figure out what to do with the president.” In...
  • 7 Big Takeaways From Andrew McCabe’s Planned Coup

    02/15/2019 12:14:27 PM PST · by E. Pluribus Unum · 32 replies
    McCabe's actions prove that the Russia probe was always tainted and that many in the FBI and DOJ aren’t public servants, but rather incompetent attention-seekers. If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for...

    Whoopi Goldberg says newly elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez needs to stop “pooping” on the Democratic Party and tone down her “very opinionated” nature for a while. The ladies of ABC’s “The View” were not pleased on Monday with a recent interview the New York Democrat gave on “60 Minutes” with Anderson Cooper. They accused the young Democrat of rhetorically defecating on “the shoulders of quite a few giants” before ever accruing a single legislative accomplishment. “She is very opinionated, which we like,” Ms. Goldberg said. “We like opinionated women. But it is very, very difficult when people make accusations where...

    CBS paid more than $5 million in a settlement agreement reached in the 1990s with a woman who claimed former '60 minutes' executive producer Doug Hewitt sexually assaulted her, the New York Times reported Thursday. Lawyers hired by CBS to investigate the workplace culture of '60 Minutes' are set to present a report to the board next week, according to the Times, which obtained a draft. The report, precipitated by the high profile removals of '60 Minutes' producer Jeff Fager and CBS chief executive Les Moonves after sexual misconduct allegations, found the program's separation from the larger company to be...

    @60Minutes did a phony story about child separation when they know we had the exact same policy as the Obama Administration. In fact a picture of children in jails was used by other Fake Media to show how bad (cruel) we are, but it was in 2014 during O years. Obama separated.... ....children from parents, as did Bush etc., because that is the policy and law. I tried to keep them together but the problem is, when you do that, vast numbers of additional people storm the Border. So with Obama seperation is fine, but with Trump it’s not. Fake...

    Mike Cernovich is about to debut his long-awaited movie about “fake news,” a visual broadside on the hypocrisy seen often in liberal media and the clearest explanation yet of his tactics popular on conservative social media channels. In “Hoaxed,” a quick-paced two-hour documentary, he says, “All media is narratives and we are in a war of narratives.” The crowd-funded “Hoaxed” sticks it to big media like "60 Minutes" and others for playing favorites with Democrats. For example, Cernovich shows video of media figures questioning the health and mind of President Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, but ignoring the signs...

Lesley Stahl’s interview with Trump was an undeniable get; he’d been scarce on mainstream media since around the time he appeared on tape with NBC’s Lester Holt and indicated he’d fired former FBI Director James Comey in part due to the Russia investigation. But the interview seemed governed by two motives, both of...

    "I'm the one that gave Ukraine offensive weapons and tank killers. Obama didn't. You know what he sent? He sent pillows and blankets," Trump said. President Trump claims his administration has been tougher on Russia than his predecessor's, arguing that former President Obama allowed Russia to annex Ukraine and only offered them "pillows and blankets." "I'm the one that gave Ukraine offensive weapons and tank killers. Obama didn't. You know what he sent? He sent pillows and blankets. I'm the one -- and he's the one that gave away a part of Ukraine where Russia," Trump said in a "60...

    President Trump said he has “no intention” of shutting down special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. “60 Minutes” host Lesley Stahl asked Trump in an interview that aired Sunday if he would pledge not to shut down probe. “Well, I don’t pledge anything,” Trump said. “But I will tell you, I have no intention of doing that. I think it’s a very unfair investigation because there was no collusion of any kind.” When pressed on why he wouldn't make a pledge, Trump said he didn’t want to. “Why should I pledge to you? If...

    When Shakespeare wrote, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” he may have been right — then. Today, our definition of words is much more fluid and the latest debate centers around the word “mob,” defined by the dictionary as “a crowd of people, especially one that is disorderly and intent on causing trouble.” Cell phone videos proliferate of scenes such as the group chanting, “We believe survivors,” as they crowded around Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and his wife on a dinner date, screaming and driving the couple from the restaurant. Defenders of the screamers characterize them...
