  • The New York Times Must Explain Why Its Racial Double Standard Is Good For Society

    The New York Times announced this week that it had hired Sarah Jeong as a new member of its editorial board. As is the unfortunate custom in the modern media age, this hiring led to a dissection of Jeongís Twitter history in the hopes of finding something offensive. It did not take long for offensive things to be discovered. But in this case the offensive content came with a twist unique to the age of privilege. What the tweets described ó and there were many ó was how horrible white people are. Among her many discriminatory tweets about white people,...

    Unlike Roseanne Barr, so-called ďcomedianĒ Samantha Bee will apparently be allowed to keep her show on the air after making offensive, profane comments about the First Daughter, Ivanka Trump. Bee, who came under a tidal wave of criticism last week when she casually referred to Ivanka as a ďfeckless c*ntĒ apologized to viewers on Wednesday night, insisting that she was on a crusade to take the C-word ďbackĒ for feminists. She acknowledged, however, that the way she used the word on last weekís program was not a great example of that reclaiming effort.
  • CNNís Amanpour: Trump Is a ĎGrave and Existential Threatí to the Press

    05/13/2018 5:25:04 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 134 replies ^ | May 13, 2018 | Nicholas Fondacaro
    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...

    The former attorney general of the state of New York allegedly had a pattern of slapping and choking women with whom he was intimate. He also spat at them, demanded threesomes, insulted them, threatened them and called one (who had dark skin) his "brown slave," according to recent accusations. One woman claims that without warning he slammed her so hard that he broke her eardrum. Another woman says that his palm left a red welt on her face that remained visible the following day. These and other details about Eric Schneiderman were disclosed by Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer in...

    Full Title: Dinesh DíSouza demands equal justice for Rosie OíDonnellís FIVE violations. He was convicted for just one. Conservative author Dinesh DíSouza, who was indicted in 2014 for using straw donors to contribute $20,000 to a GOP candidate in 2012, is demanding equal justice under the law for liberal comedian Rosie OíDonnell, who made illegal contributions to five different Democratic political candidates. As BizPac Review has reported, OíDonnell used five different addresses, according to records published in the New York Post, and four variations of her name to illegally donate to five liberal politicians, including Trump-hating Democrat Adam Schiff. During...

    t‚Äôs well known that CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter is no fan of President Trump. He even goes as far as to question‚Äôs the President‚Äôs mental stability and was overjoyed when the rest of the media were pushing their hot takes too. During Sunday‚Äôs Reliable Sources, he opined about how the White House was in day 470 of what he called a ‚Äúcredibility crisis.‚ÄĚ And despite how the show is supposed to be about the media, Stelter dismissed the notion media was having their own crisis after their ‚Äúno good, very bad week.‚ÄĚ After highlighting what would be discussed...

    Joy Reidís old blog, The Reid Report (2000-2014), is littered with even more anti-gay posts than were originally discovered, reports the far-left blog Mediate. The MSNBC host is claiming these latest discoveries were not written by her, but by hackers as a means ďto taint my character.Ē Earlier this year, Reid admitted to authoring a number of posts on her old site that mercilessly ridiculed then-Republican Florida Governor Charlie Crist as a homosexual (even after he married a woman). Reid was clearly using homosexuality as a pejorative, as a weapon of ridicule, so the left-wing MSNBC anchorís homophobia has already...

    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...

    What did Fox News' Laura Ingraham say that cost her advertisers? About David Hogg, the teenage Parkland, Florida, high school shooting survivor, Fox's Ingraham tweeted: "David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA...totally predictable given acceptance rates.)" Insensitive, given the mass shooting that killed 17 at Hogg's high school? Yes. Insulting and condescending coming from an Ivy League-educated lawyer? Yes. But the punishment does not fit the crime. Hogg urged Ingraham's advertisers to drop her show. Several did. Ingraham apologized, but Hogg refused to accept her apology....

    When it was first announced last Thursday that President Trump was to personally meet with North Korea Dictator Kim Jong-un for negotiations, the media’s response varied from optimistic to seething anger. But with some time, it appears as though their consensus is now to denounce the idea as was blatantly obvious on Sunday’s Meet the Press. The entire panel up in arms and fretting that Trump was either going to hand North Korea a victory or blow a gasket at the meeting and start a war. Moderator Chuck Todd, still bitter because Trump called him a “sleeping son of a...

    During a speech at a campaign rally for a congressional race in Pennsylvania on Saturday, President Trump unleashed on the liberal media and NBC Political Director Chuck Todd whom he called a ‚Äúsleeping son of a b*tch.‚ÄĚ And as would be expected, CNN media reporter Brian Stelter and his Reliable Sources panel responded with their own righteously indignant hot takes. Chief among them was Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik who argued that if you laughed at Trump‚Äôs jokes you were damaging society.Stelter set up the tone of the show to once again be all about bemoaning how Trump treated...

    President Trump shocked the world Thursday night when it was announced that he planned to sit down with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in the coming months. The political world was so overwhelmed by the news that even the journalists at CNN were more or less optimistic. Yet over at MSNBC, host Rachel Maddow was anything but enthused by the idea as she spewed skepticism and threw shade at the commander-in-chief for excepting North Korea’s offer. Towards the beginning of her bitter rant, Maddow seemed to question the President’s intelligence and/or knowledge of history for taking the meeting: You might...
  • Heroic Parkland Shooting Survivor Calls Out CNN for ĎScriptedí Questions

    The Wednesday CNN town hall promoting gun bans and moderated by Jake Tapper was arguably a train wreck from the beginning. Between a student saying Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) reminded him of the shooter and shouts of ‚Äėmurderer‚Äô at NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch, it was out of control. But in the wee hours of Thursday morning, things got worse for the anti-gun network when the local Florida ABC affiliate WPLG-TV reported that CNN had been planting questions. The whistleblower was Colton Haab, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who heroically shielded his fellow students from the bullets with...
  • Jennifer Rubin and the Liberal Media Double Standard

    02/10/2018 6:29:13 PM PST · by Kaslin · 14 replies ^ | February 10, 2018 | Jeffrey Lord
    Recall the outrage from Washington Post liberal columnist Jennifer Rubin when President Trump said George W. Bush was ‚Äúunpatriotic‚ÄĚ? Or when Trump said of Democrats that they had ‚Äúacted like terrorists‚ÄĚ during the budget fight? Or when Trump attacked Democrats for ‚Äúpurposely sabotaging the country‚Äôs economic recovery‚ÄĚ and added that ‚ÄúThese guys bet against America all the time‚ÄĚ? Rubin was particularly incensed when the President went after pro-choice activists as ‚Äúterrorist groups‚ÄĚ and said that the words of a Democratic Senator ‚Äúborders on treasonous.‚ÄĚ Actually, no. Rubin was not outraged. Nor were her colleagues in the liberal media. Doubtless it...

    So-called fact-checking website PolitiFact proved just how much of a hack organization they were on Thursday when they announced that they were hiring former Florida Congressmen David Jolly (R) and the infamous Alan Grayson (D). The backlash was swift and came from across the political spectrum, especially for Grayson. The backlash was even present on HLN‚Äôs S.E. Cupp Unfiltered where Cupp and TV‚Äôs Andy Levy hilariously mocked the ‚Äúfact-checker‚ÄĚ for hiring the ‚ÄúArchduke‚ÄĚ of lying. ‚ÄúIn his 2010 campaign, he got called out by another fact-checking website for using edited video in a campaign ad to make his Republican opponent...

    ABC kicked off Sunday¬ís Good Morning America with five minutes dedicated to the government shutdown. And despite the fact that Democrats were bragging that they had the votes to do it, the liberal network trashed Republicans and touted how President Trump would take all the blame. ‚ÄúThe government is not going to stay closed forever. The question is how long will it take. And you can see the argument on both sides. As our polls show, you guys showed it, people coming into this debate believe the President and Republicans will be to blame by a wide wide margin,‚ÄĚ hyped...

  • CBS Questions if Trump Supporting Iranian People ĎThe Wrong Thing to Doí

    After CBS initially ignored the Iranian people’s uprising against their oppressors from Thursday to Saturday, and then downplayed the murder of two protesters and shootings of others earlier on Sunday, White House Correspondent Major Garrett finally dedicated some sort of significant time to the subject (two minutes 31 seconds) for the network when he was filling in on Face The Nation. Unfortunately, he only brushed over the details and questioned if President Trump should be speaking out in support of the people fighting for freedom. Garrett began the show with an interview with Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and before getting...
