    12/24/2017 8:35:26 PM PST · by Helicondelta · 51 replies ^ | Dec 24
    Journalists on Sunday criticized President Trump for retweeting a photo of what appears to be the CNN logo in a splatter of blood on the bottom of the president's shoe. The caption on the photo says, "Winning." Journalists from multiple outlets criticized the image, which was originally tweeted from the username oregon4TRUMP.
  • CNN Humiliated After Pushing #FakeNews About Donald Trump Jr. & WikiLeaks

    The mainstream media has embarrassed itself once again after it was caught pushing ‘Trump-Russia’ fake news. This time, both CNN and CBS fell for inaccurate reports alleging a WikiLeaks email was sent to Donald Trump Jr. with an encryption key to access future leaks. However, WikiLeaks had tweeted a link to the information days before the email reached Trump Jr. inbox. The fake news media claim this was stone cold proof of collusion, as WikiLeaks has long been smeared as a Kremlin puppet. Disaster! “So CNN misreported the date of the Wikileaks email that @DonaldJTrumpJr received, meaning that the entire...

    "There is a good chance the president of the United States is watching us right now,” Cuomo said. “He watches this show. He monitors the media. He criticizes it. All of that is within his right. But with power comes accountability. And there is something wrong with him attacking a free press. There is something wrong with him wanting to change the libel laws.”

    WASHINGTON — Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Tuesday that she did not seek to "unmask" the names of Trump associates for political purposes, but also described the process of asking for the intelligence community to reveal the names of U.S. citizens as a "longstanding, established process." "The allegation is that somehow Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes," Rice told MSNBC. "That's absolutely false." Rice was responding to allegations in conservative media outlets that she used her office to request information about Trump transition officials. While she would not discuss specific information that she asked for —...

    01/13/17   Why CNN's report was even worse than BuzzFeed's unsubstantiated report Aaron Rossiter | 1/13/17 | 11:50PM/ESTCNN reported that a two-page summary of a political opposition research file compiled by Trump's political opponents was included in a presidential level classified briefing. In the CNN report, they indicated that the intelligence chiefs considered the political operative who compiled the file credible and his sources credible. WATCH JAKE TAPPER'S REVIEW OF THE REPORTBecause it cited the intelligence chiefs as likely believing the political operative, the CNN report left a strong impression that the file probably contained true information.

    Incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Wednesday that CNN reporter Jim Acosta should apologize to President-elect Trump after Spicer said Acosta was "rude, inappropriate and disrespectful" during Trump's press conference... "I think Mr. Acosta owes the president-elect and frankly the entire press corps an apology for his childish and inappropriate behavior," Spicer told Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight." Acosta repeatedly called on Trump to let him ask a question after the president-elect disparaged reports by CNN and BuzzFeed that Russian spies have collected compromising information about him. Trump refused to call on Acosta, at one point telling him...

    Washington (CNN)US intelligence has identified the go-betweens the Russians used to provide stolen emails to WikiLeaks, according to US officials familiar with the classified intelligence review that was presented to President Barack Obama on Thursday. In a Fox News interview earlier this week, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange denied that Russia was the source of leaked Democratic emails that roiled the 2016 election to the detriment of President-elect Donald Trump's rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton.

    CNN caught ADDING key word to Trump’s comments; Twitter ERUPTS It’s no longer a surprise that CNN, aka the Clinton News Network, is doing whatever it can to boost Hillary Clinton for president. It even admitted as much on air. And its actions in this presidential election continue to remove any doubt one might have had that it’s not to be viewed as an objective news source. We saw CNN hosts openly toasting and celebrating the Democrat candidate’s nomination. We’ve caught them editing out a Trump t-shirt worn by a hero — so as not to associate Trump with anything other...
  • CNN "Trump backs off false Iran video claim"

    Washington (CNN)Donald Trump backed off a false claim Friday morning, admitting he had not seen a video of a $400 million payment being unloaded from a US plane in Iran. The Republican nominee had claimed at rallies twice this week that such a video existed, saying in Maine on Thursday that it was provided by Iranians "to embarrass our president because we have a president who's incompetent."

    Former President George W. Bush is under fire for charging $100,000 to speak to a group of veterans wounded in a pair of wars he started when he was in office, just the latest front in a political battle over speaking fees that has hit both sides of the aisle. Members of the Texas-based Helping a Hero charity told ABC News that Bush charged $100,000 for his 2012 speech at a charity fundraiser for veterans who lost limbs in the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars. The former president was also given use of a private jet at a cost of $20,000...

    CNN Commits Birth Certificate Fraud To Cover For Obama’s Constitutional Ineligibility Posted by Pamela Barnett - 11 September 2012 CNN states on their program that a picture of a real Hawaii birth certificate is Obama’s when it belongs to a Japanese-American (possibly Keith Suganuma) child born in 1960 to a father Francis (possibly last name Suganuma), 42, who was a police officer and a mother Mildred, 20. Please review screen shots from CNN’s video and help fill in the rest of the pieces. I think the mother’s middle and maiden names may be Kazuo and Yashiki respectively. Notice that CNN...

The American Legislative Executive Council, also known as ALEC, is getting attention lately for its behind the scenes work pushing conservative legislation in the states. The group has gotten even more attention since a neighborhood watch volunteer shot and killed...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Safe to say that the media has destroyed George Zimmerman. They set out to destroy George Zimmerman, and they've done it. It's unconscionable what they've done. George Zimmerman doesn't have a microphone, can't fight back. He was just singled out and destroyed. The third network has come forward today and admitted that their original interpretation of a tape involving words spoken by Zimmerman may now not be correct. The third network. The first was NBC, which admitted doctoring a 911 tape. This is not an accident that takes place in the hustle and bustle of putting together...
  • A Comparison: CNN’s Vastly Different Reporting On Bush, Obama Gas Prices

    Big Journalism ^ | April 26, 2011 | Accuracy in Media
    A blog at today begins as follows: President Barack Obama confronted two political realities this week: – Rising gas prices are bad for a politician’s poll numbers – There is almost nothing a politician can do about it, at least in the short run. Read the article here and see for yourself how CNN defends President Obama’s actions regarding oil prices. CNN showcases Obama’s recent rhetoric about gas prices, while conveniently neglecting to fact check any of President Obama’s claims (as CNN did when covering President Bush’s gas price rhetoric in past years). Throughout the article, President Obama is...

    Yesterday’s horrific and senseless shooting of more than a dozen people in Tucson, including Representative Gabrielle Giffords, provided a look into the biases of much of the American media — and it was not just an ugly sight, but a shamefully hypocritical peek as well, as Byron York points out. In the last public mass-murder shooting fourteen months ago at Fort Hood, the media spent the first few hours scolding anyone who suggested that it might be an act of terror or that Major Nidal Hasan’s religious beliefs might be relevant before every last fact was exposed: “We cannot jump...

    There is something about CNN and the people writing chyrons for the alleged "most trusted name in news" with the "best political team on television." Last week, these geniuses clarified the White House's position on President Barack Obama's religion. However on CNN Aug. 28 coverage of Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally, which CNN reporters and anchors seemingly held their nose up and reported on throughout the event, the chyron on the screen was something likened to one of those parlor games where you circle the numerous errors involved.

    How many tens of thousands of people marching in protest does it take for CNN to acknowledge that it's happening? The Iranian people are outraged at the lack of coverage by CNN. The Iranian people need publicity about their plight and desire for a Free Iran in order to topple the regime. Iranians were shouting in English: "We Want Freedom". If it isn't reported, who will know? BBC reporter not afraid to show what's happening -
