    Fox News | 9/23/16
    Absolutely unbelievable. Three person attack team against Trump: Judith Miller, Greg Jarrett, Lynn Sweet. Judy Miller says objective reporters all agree that Matt Lauer was rude to Hillary and not rude to Trump. She says regarding complaints about unfair coverage, Hillary has a legitimate reason to complain, but Trump does not. Lynn Sweet states Trump has benefited from months of favorable coverage by the media. I had to laugh. She ripped Trump for not holding press conferences.... Then Gregg Jarrett chimed in to agree. He complained that Trump will attack you if you're not cheering for him.

    Television reporters deleted video footage on Friday of Donald Trump's new hotel in Washington, D.C., after his Friday press conference left the media feeling trolled by the Republican presidential hopeful and he blocked a producer from joining a tour of the luxury hotel. According to multiple reports, staffers from a variety of TV networks decided not to air the b-roll they had captured as a way of protesting the Trump campaign's decision not to allow anyone but photographers on the hotel tour.

    Maybe this was already posited by someone, but I don't recall. The Washington comPost wanted to help Hitlery change the subject from her disastrous candidacy and campaign, so "birther" crap was resurrected. Suddenly CNN and even FOX got on board. Pathetic. Trump stays on message, gets endorsed by great veterans, and the media is left looking like fools. My guess is they'll try to keep this alive, by orders implicit or explicit from Team Shrillary.

    In a report published by Sputnik News, psychologist Robert Epstein reveals evidence that Google is manipulating search results related to Hillary Clinton that may “shift as many as 3 million votes” in the upcoming presidential election. Earlier this year, Matt Lieberman of Sourcefed published a video that claimed Google’s autocomplete suggestions were biased in favour of Clinton. The video went viral, with an abridged version of it being viewed over 25 million times on Facebook. Epstein set out with his colleagues at the American Institute for Behavioral Research (AIBRT) to investigate the claims. They concluded that whilst the investigation is...

    NBC News knows the "Commander-in-Chief Forum" was not Matt Lauer's finest hour. One executive, speaking anonymously, was blunt about it: "Disaster." The morning after Lauer's back-to-back interviews of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, several high ranking sources at the network said they hear the criticism and agree with at least some of it. Lauer was widely criticized for failing to fact-check or follow up when Trump falsely claimed that he was opposed to the Iraq war when it started. Some viewers thought Lauer held Clinton to a higher standard than Trump. Several people who were sitting in the audience told...

    ...Led by Drudge, there have been questions circulating in the conservative media — and among Trump surrogates like Rudy Giuliani — that "something" is wrong with Clinton for months. Much of that speculation ties back to an episode in late 2012 in which Clinton caught a stomach virus, fell, suffered a concussion and was then hospitalized due to a blood clot. A certain sector of conservatives were convinced that more was going on with her health than ever became public and that this was yet another example of the Clintons hiding things from the public. "Diagnoses" have run everywhere from...

It is exactly the kind of insulting trash Democrats think they can use to fool people, both Black and White. As usual the Democrat is lying. It is Hillary Clinton who accepted a $20,000 donation from the Klu Klux Klan, not Trump.

When someone is said to be taking a “hardline” position, people are constantly after them to “soften” said position, which sounds so much nicer and more reasonable. So we keep hearing that Donald Trump is taking a “hardline” position on immigration, that being the determination to deport all 11 million (or 12 million, or whatever it is) illegal immigrations who are...

The frenzy to bury Trump is not limited to the Clinton campaign and the Obama White House. They are working hand-in-hand with what was considered the cream of the nation’s news organizations.

But the media elites, as well as the political elites, are deeply threatened by the candidacy of Donald Trump, in large part because of his refusal to toe their line regarding Muslim migrants and the denial of any connection between Islam and terrorism.

Most sources at this point suggest that Ali David Sonboly – the Munich attacker who targeted children and killed nine yesterday – is not connected to radical Islam, but the BBC has gone to extraordinary lengths to try to keep any reference to his heritage out of its coverage, opting to name him only as “David Sonboly”.

    When a law professor wore a Black Lives Matter shirt to class earlier this year, she saw it as a teaching tool and exercise in academic freedom. Some of her “concerned students” saw the gesture as an attempt to push her “personal beliefs” on them, but also a threat to their ability to become practicing lawyers – and told her so in a much-derided memo. The incident was revived this month after Inside Higher Ed confirmed the institution was southern California’s Whittier Law School, whose student body is majority-minority, and the professor was Patricia Leary.

    I've been frustrated by biased news feeds that show up unsolicited on my iPhone when I access my search bar or sometimes when I wake the device up. I just looked and saw this: Does anyone know how to shut this off? What really ticks me off is that Apple is pushing this stuff out.

    Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said in an interview broadcast Sunday that two of the country’s most prominent newspapers are in an “all-out war” against Donald Trump.

Gingrich pointed to a Times article that portrayed Trump as often being inappropriate with women. The report relied on testimony from dozens of women who have interacted with...

    Because they know nothing about how successful people get things done. First of all, when I say the media think something is a scandal - even though no one is using the word “scandal” - here’s why I say it. You will see headlines and stories about things that seem quite unremarkable. Candidate contracts with vendor for services. Person uses certain word. Public official makes comment about this or that. The reporting may appear very matter-of-fact, but what you have to look at is the news judgment that led the media to mention it at all. For instance, we told...
