  • The NSA’s Hidden Spy Hubs in Eight U.S. Cities

    The secrets are hidden behind fortified walls in cities across the United States, inside towering, windowless skyscrapers and fortress-like concrete structures that were built to withstand earthquakes and even nuclear attack. Thousands of people pass by the buildings each day and rarely give them a second glance, because their function is not publicly known. They are an integral part of one of the world’s largest telecommunications networks – and they are also linked to a controversial National Security Agency surveillance program. Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. In each of these cities,...

    The liberal media made fools out of themselves Wednesday as nearly every major news outlet rushed to breathlessly report that President Trump had called all illegal immigrants to the United States “animals.” Of course, the glaring problem with their claims was that they were totally false. And despite the fact the media had to issue reams of retractions and corrections, NBC Nightly News and Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo kept up the charade Thursday evening. Here is Trump’s comment, complete with the full context: UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: There could be an MS-13 gang member I know about, if they don't reach...

    CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter kicked off Sunday’s Reliable Sources by complaining about a tweet President put out last week citing a Media Research Center study, which found 90 percent of evening network coverage of the President was negative. Of course, CNN took issue with the facts and put together a lineup of media figures to beat up on the President for criticizing them. Among the group was CNN Chief International correspondent Christiane Amanpour, who wasted no time in lashing out at President Trump and denouncing his favorable attitude towards Fox News. “I have been talking about this ever...

    t’s well known that CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter is no fan of President Trump. He even goes as far as to question’s the President’s mental stability and was overjoyed when the rest of the media were pushing their hot takes too. During Sunday’s Reliable Sources, he opined about how the White House was in day 470 of what he called a “credibility crisis.” And despite how the show is supposed to be about the media, Stelter dismissed the notion media was having their own crisis after their “no good, very bad week.” After highlighting what would be discussed...

    On Friday, shortly after President Donald Trump's announcement of air strikes against Syria, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow twice put on her tinfoil hat, alleging that there is a "perception that the president may have ordered these strikes in part because of scandal," and that Trump's decision "may have ... (been) inflected by the scandals surrounding him." Maddow even contended that this alleged perception of scandal-driven decision-making will "affect the impact and the effectiveness of these military strikes." Maddow's first speculation appeared shortly after Trump's announcement:Transcript RACHEL MADDOW: As we follow the news in these incredible days that we have been having recently...

    Tin foil hats were bountiful on Saturday morning’s AM Joy as MSNBC host Joy Reid laid out a conspiracy theory for the ages, hyperventilating over a scenario in which President Trump refuses a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller and is either arrested by U.S. Marshall or barricades himself in the White House.  Real Clear Politics writer Ian Schwartz flagged this down, beginning with Reid’s liberal fan fiction telling former Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman to imagine “that Donald Trump decides he doesn't want to give an interview with Mueller, but Mueller says, ‘Oh, but you will.’”Tin-Foil Fantasy: Reid Dreams Up...

    In what really could only be described as a completely bonkers conspiracy theory, The Nation magazine editor Katrina vanden Heuvel suggested Sunday that Rex Tillerson was fired from the secretary of state position because his replacement was funded by the Koch brothers and because the administration wanted a war with Iran. If you’re confused, don’t worry, the rest of the liberal panel on ABC’s This Week didn’t seem to be able to follow her convoluted mess either. The ridiculousness began when a conversation about the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was derailed by vanden Heuvel, who decided...

    Monday was marked by the rolling train wreck that was former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg’s seemingly non-stop appearances on cable news shows taunting Special Counsel Robert Mueller for subpoenaing him. During his wild interviews (which lasted from mid-afternoon into the night), Nunberg made numerous suggestions that federal investigators may have some kind of case against President Trump. And that was all the liberal network news outlets needed to run with it. Both CBS Evening News and ABC’s World News Tonight kicked off their programs with the jaw-dropping spectacle. On CBS, anchor Jeff Glor even announced that they were pushing back...

    MSNBC’s Katy Tur has a glaring habit of letting her anti-Republican hatred run wild while confronting and slamming GOPers on issues she knows little about. The same was true when she hosted the 2:00 p.m. hour of MSNBC Live on Wednesday when the network’s cameras were in Florida Governor Rick Scott’s office documenting anti-gun protestors screaming at the receptionists while he wasn’t there. Tur declared Scott was “refusing to speak” with them, but was later educated by his office and forced to report he was attending a funeral for one of the students slain in the Parkland shooting. “This is...

    CNN media reporter Brian Stelter was up in arms during Sunday’s Reliable Sources as he ranted about how the release of Nunes memo was a win for Fox News, more specifically Sean Hannity, and all the people in conservative media trying to create what he called an “alternative reality.” Stelter began the show with a twist on his usual lead-in loaded with hollow catchphrases: "This is Reliable Sources, our weekly look at the story behind the story, of how the media really works, how the news gets made. And this week, how misinformation gets made. The right unleashed its version...

    Conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh came locked and loaded for Wednesday’s show, torching the liberal media as “childish,” “unstable,” and “entirely unfit to discharge their constitutional duties” in light of their “unhinged instability” at Tuesday’s White House press briefing concerning President Trump’s health. Limbaugh also hammered the liberal media as having turned the briefing room into “nothing more than Romper Room without a teacher” with “the kids playing in the sandbox, not getting their toys and not getting their lunches and not getting recess.” “Ladies and gentlemen, the childish display, the childish exposition and behavior of the Drive-By Media...

    What explains all of these flat Earth believer stories which keep popping up in the media? Bear with me here, because this may be a bit on the “meta” side as the kids like to say these days. I’m not talking about the phenomenon itself, where people supposedly claim that the planet is shaped like a pancake and the government, no doubt in league with Big Globe, is trying to bury the truth for some nefarious reason. The question I was pondering this week is why the media keeps paying so much attention to it. And I’ve got a theory...

    CNN’s media reporter Brian Stelter got his long-awaited wish granted last week the liberal media en mass started openly questioned President Trump’s mental acuity followed the release of Fire and Fury, the dubiously sourced anti-Trump book that was light on facts but loaded with gossip. Despite how his show was called “Reliable Sources,” Stelter spent his entire Sunday show glorifying the book and praising those calling the President’s mental stability into question. “The tip-toeing is over! The whispers are turning into shouts! President Trump's fitness for office is now the top story in the country. Reporters and some lawmakers are...

    If you thought CNN’s open anti-Trump hysteria couldn’t get any wilder, then buckle up, because at the end of Reliable Sources on Sunday host Brian Stelter led a segment dedicated to press crackdowns by dictators and how the President’s “fake news” call-outs were helping them. Stelter began the segment with a monologue about the case of “award-winning Mexican journalist, Emilio Gutierrez, and his son,” who was staying in the U.S. illegally and were now detained and facing deportation. “Emilio was tried, he sought refugee status. He was denied and his appeal failed. So he fled to the U.S. in 2008...

    Congressional Republicans were one step closer to realizing their hopes for tax reform on Thursday as it appeared as though the House and Senate had reconciled nearly all of the legislation. Hearing the recommendations and concerns of the public, the Republicans preserved the current tax code’s deductions for student loans, medical bills, and added a $10,000 cap for state and local taxes. But of the three major network news outlets, NBC was the only one that left them out of their evening broadcast. Instead of reporting what was known to be in the GOP tax reform bill, NBC Nightly News...

    In an extensive piece published by The Intercept on Saturday, co-founder of the news site Glenn Greenwald excoriated CNN (as well as a host of other news outlets) for recklessly advancing agenda driven stories involving the Russia investigation, with no transparency when the stories blow up in their face and go viral with fake news. Greenwald began by noting how “Friday was one of the most embarrassing days for the U.S. media in quite a long time.”“The humiliation orgy was kicked off by CNN, with MSNBC and CBS close behind, with countless pundits, commentators and operatives joining the party throughout...

    After starting Sunday’s Reliable Sources by shredding ABC and Brian Ross for their disastrous reporting regarding Michael Flynn’s plea deal, host Brian Stelter retreated to more familiar grounds: Claiming President Trump was insane and was a threat to everyone. His inspiration for the segment was the recent diatribes published in the New York Daily News, The Washington Post, and on MSNBC, places known for their even keel attitudes towards the President (please note the sarcasm).Jeff, let's have what I always say is this uncomfortable conversation. I think it is deeply uncomfortable to talk about this. But I think we have...

    April Ryan, an inexplicably esteemed member of the White House press corps, having tried and failed to promote a "fake news" controversy over White House's Press Secretary Sarah Sanders' Thanksgiving pecan pie, has not apologized or acknowledged her error, has rejected Sanders' face-saving attempt to smooth things over, and is apparently worried that Sanders will publicly poison her and her fellow journalists. You can't make this stuff up. Ryan's history, as documented at NewsBusters, is full of embarrassing statements, unhinged rants, and stunning ignorance of very basic facts. The pie saga began when Sanders posted a photo Thursday afternoon of the pecan...

    A company in Duluth, Minnesota, has fired about 50 employees who refused to get flu shots, according to KBJR 6. KBJR 6 on Tuesday reported that Essentia Health had set a Monday deadline for staff to get the injections. Essentia told employees, students, vendors and volunteers in September that they had three options in relation to the vaccinations. The health care provider said that the individuals affected could get the shot, secure an approved medical or religious exemption, or leave the company. Dr. Rajesh Prabhu, who is Essentia’s chief of patient quality and safety, on Tuesday said that the organization’s...
