    Mainstream media is at it again, promulgating fake news.¬†I woke up this morning to a slew of stories about ‚ÄúPalestinian Protestors Killed in Gaza Protests.‚ÄĚ The imagery of a man holding up a cardboard sign while getting shot comes to mind, from such a headline, doesn‚Äôt it? I became concerned, read further.¬†Turns out, it‚Äôs the same ‚Äėol anti-Israeli fake news. Mainstream media at it again.¬†Headlines:CNN: ‚Äú37 Palestinians killed in Gaza protests ahead of US embassy opening‚ÄĚABC News: ‚ÄúDeath toll in massive Palestinian protests climbs to at least 41, bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014 war‚ÄĚWashington Post: ‚ÄúIsraelis kill dozens of...

    The intense fear and loathing that permeates news coverage of President Donald Trump is being multiplied on television dramas. Impeachment scenarios and 25th Amendment removal strategies are rolling around in the brains of scriptwriters. Barbara Hall, the creator of the pro-Hillary Clinton CBS show "Madam Secretary," claimed "We just take things that are already in the atmosphere, and if we find them interesting in terms of a civics lesson, we show you what it would look like. We're not campaigning for it. We're not politicizing it, really. We're just saying, 'Here's what the process looks like.'" Agenda? What agenda? It's...

    RUSH: I donít know how you can say first and foremost. But one of the items is the firing of Andrew McCabe and the fact that he is not losing his pension. Andrew McCabe was not fired by anything Donald Trump had anything to do with. Andrew McCabe was fired after an inspection, an investigation of the FBI and its handling of the Hillary Clinton email mess by the Office of Inspector General. The Office of Inspector General, the head of that agency, was appointed by Barack Obama. And the original reason for the internal investigation of the FBI was...

    RUSH: Well, Iím thinking right about right now the Drive-By Media is once again depressed and angry, combination of the two. Because every day they get up, as you know, and they think theyíre gonna find the silver bullet thatís gonna send Trump packing that day, not six months from now. They think theyíre gonna wind up with something thatís gonna send Trump packing, resigning, being frog-marched out of the White House, whatever, that day. And yet every day they look at Trump, and they see a guy having fun, they see a guy enjoying the job, they see a...

    ...It is a weird thing to watch the media uncritically receive and regurgitate dozens of leaks ó all of them out of context, some of them downright false ó from Rep. Adam Schiff and his team and then write up that the other side is leaking. This is particularly bizarre given the general lack of leaks coming from House Permanent Select Committee Republicans. At the very least itís worth noting that there were no leaks from Intelligence Committee Republicans about their 4-page memo alleging FISA abuses, even as the agencies and Democrats on the committee put out anticipatory leaks to...

    Old liberal media liars never fade away. They just rage, rage against the dying of their dinosaur industry's light. I'm looking at you, Dan Rather. After years of trashing alternative media, which exposed the veteran CBS News reporter's monumental Memogate fraud in 2004, Rather has joined the ranks of pajama-clad online broadcasters. The 86-year-old grandfather of fake news now uses Facebook, YouTube and Twitter to stoke the left's anti-Trump resistance -- all while clinging bitterly to the vestiges of his defunct "legendary" newsman persona. Consider Gunga Dan's comments on the House Intelligence Committee's release of the four-page Nunes memo alleging...

    RUSH: So Trump is over in Davos, and it isnít going the way Drive-Bys dreamed it would go. Trump is being embraced. Trump is being celebrated. Trump is being lauded. The Drive-Bys expected Trump to be protested! They expected Trump to be shunned. They hoped for all of this, and what this presents us today is a great opportunity. You know, our all-time favorite audio sound bites ó and itís tough; I mean, it may not be the all-time favorite, but it ranks right there. Itís our old buddy Nic Robertson of CNN in Cairo (laughing) during the Arab Spring...

    On Monday, January 25, 1988, 30 years ago tonight, Americans across the country saw with their own eyes an early example of the ugly liberal media attack machine.†Dan Rather, the anchor of the CBS Evening News at the time, laid a trap and attempted to ambush then-Vice President George H.W. Bush on live TV. Of course, Ratherís goal was to embarrass the leading Republican contender for the 1988 Republican presidential nomination.† The segment was supposed to be a ďcandidateís profile.Ē Instead, Rather screamed at the Vice President over the Iran-Contra scandal, making it the sole topic discussed.†Visibly angry, he berated...

    A cornerstone of a truly free society is the presence of a vigilant news media, one that is willing to hold powerful government officials accountable when they abuse their offices for their own personal gain or the advancement of corrupt special interests. A sign a society is on the path to tyranny is when the overwhelming majority of a nationís journalists are committed to doing whatever they can to destroy one political group while they work feverishly to cover up the scandals of another.Which of these two scenarios sounds more like America today?To say that there is a conspiracy to...

    At the risk of sending the left into a state of apoplexy, a monolithic, biased, renegade, politicized press is a far greater threat to liberty than a president criticizing the media. Like their First Amendment counterparts -- the freedom of religion, the freedom of assembly and the right to petition the government -- the freedoms of speech and the press are an important part of what has made the United States the freest and greatest nation in world history. It is fitting, then, that we elevate them to such venerated status in this country. But it's important that we distinguish...

    Townhall.com ^ | January 18, 2018 | Jackie Gingrich Cushman
    For the news industry to thrive, it has to address their audience's low opinion of their work product and make it better. While the First Amendment provides freedom of the press, it does not address the potential bias of those who work in the press, or what control the press might have. It does not address how that bias might change news into opinion, nor does it address the distinction between news and commentary. The First Amendment states, "Congress shall make no law... abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press." So government can't control the press. The press...

    We complain about how biased the so-called mainstream media is, but what do we do about it? CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC and CBS dominate TV news. The New York Times and The Washington Post dominate print media. Everywhere you turn you can’t escape their presence. CNN is carried in far more markets than Fox News. President Trump complained about having CNN but not Fox News when traveling in hotels overseas. Google News artificially elevates The New York Times and The Washington Post on its homepage and in search results. A Pew survey just came out that revealed Americans trust our media even...

    In July, MSNBC host and former Rep. Joe Scarborough showily announced on Stephen Colbert's CBS show that he was leaving the Republican Party. No one on the Republican National Committee flew a flag at half-mast. The announcement was at least a decade behind the reality. In 2006, he basically called then-President Bush an idiot. Last week, he did the same to President Trump. There is consistency here from the man who craves attention. Scarborough is the MSNBC equivalent of David Gergen, someone always twiddling his spit-covered finger in the wind and switching his allegiances depending on which option benefits him...
  • Transparent DOJ and FBI Desperation: New York Times Attempts ďTrump OperationĒ Justification

    Immediately following confirmation by Senator Lindsey Graham about the origin of the 2016 FBI Counterintelligence Operation against candidate Donald Trump, The New York Times, via Clintonís favorite voice Maggie Haberman, pushes out an article attempting to cloud, obfuscate and justify the joint FBI and DOJ surveillance operation against Trump. The timing, content and presentation of the disinformation is transparent in the intended motive. More and more people are recognizing the FBI application to the FISA court was based on political information, the Steele Dossier, assembled by political operatives and used by political operatives within the DOJ National Security Division and...

    acebook is getting rid of its fake news red flags because they were making fabricated media reports appear more believable to its users. The social network began showing "disputed" warnings next to articles in December to alert people that third party fact-checking websites deemed them misleading. It will now show a selection of ďrelated articlesĒ next to offending stories instead. These will give more context and could help people learn the facts surrounding a situation through reputable media publications. The U-turn was prompted by research suggesting users would actually believe fake news even if it was flagged as incorrect or...

    "Our record as journalists in covering this Trump story and the Russian story is pretty good," legendary reporter Carl Bernstein recently claimed. Pretty good? If there's a major news story over the past 70 years that the American media has botched more often because of bias and wishful thinking, I'd love to hear about it. Four big scoops recently run by major news organizations -- written by top reporters and, presumably, churned through layers of scrupulous editing -- turned out to be completely wrong. Reuters, Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal and others reported that special counsel Robert Mueller's office had...

    On Friday, CNN peddled an incorrect report about Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Wikileaks. They allege that the then-presidential candidate, his son, and other folks within their inner circle received an email that contained a decryption key to a trove of documents from Wikileaks. The problem was this email was already made public‚ÄĒand the date was wrong. Here‚Äôs the correction: Correction: This story has been corrected to say the date of the email was September 14, 2016, not September 4, 2016. The story also changed the headline and removed a tweet from Donald Trump Jr., who posted a...

    Welcome back to Can't Handle the Truth, our Saturday column looking at the past seven days of fake news and hoaxes that have spread thanks to the internet. The situation is dark for Democrats right now. Early Saturday morning, the Senate passed a rushed-through tax bill that disproportionately benefits the wealthy and corporations, the first major legislative achievement for Donald Trump and the Republicans. This bill will have to be reconciled with a House version of tax reform before it becomes law, but thanks to GOP majorities in both chambers of Congress, Democrats are utterly powerless in these negotiations. What's...

    The wife of Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) described in an article published Wednesday the excruciating pain her husband is enduring after he was injured in an attack, and she squarely blamed it on their neighbor, Rene Boucher, without naming him. "Since the attack, my husband Rand Paul hasn't taken a single breath without pain," Kelley Paul wrote in a piece published on CNN's website. She described how the attack on Nov. 3 left her husband with six broken ribs, three displaced, pleural effusion, and now pneumonia.Boucher has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault. His attorney, Matthew Baker, told CNN...
