  • A Vanquished Press Fails To Comprehend Its Defeat by Trump

    The New York Sun ^ | 22 Nov 2016 | Conrad Black
    As there is an incessant crescendo, still gaining in volume each week, about President Obama’s “legacy,” I thought it appropriate to try to identify this legacy, which his supporters believe history will honor. I have written here and elsewhere that, apart from breaking the color barrier and disposing of bin Laden, I am hard pressed to think of anything useful in his legacy. Never have I been an Obama hater or someone who disputed his patriotism. I do think that Mr. Obama is rather subdued about the tired pieties of “American exceptionalism” and that this is not unjustified given his...

    The People's Repudiation Of Media Influence Thus, despite the media's best efforts to defeat Trump through a barrage of negative news stories, most Americans appeared not to be swayed by media coverage. Election Day provided the most definitive proof of both the media's bias against Trump and the people's repudiation of its attempts to influence the election narrative. Heading into the day of the vote, most news outlets were confident that Clinton would become the 45th president of the United States, as they pointed to poll after poll showing the former secretary of state comfortably leading Trump. This coverage seemed...

"The one guy that had some special interests that I know of that tried to get me to change my views on something—that was generous and gave me money—was Donald Trump," Bush said. "He wanted casino gambling in Florida." That’s when Trump cut him off—and failed to tell the truth. “I didn't,” Trump said. Read more: more than 21 years, Trump did. He and his company have repeatedly been on record trying to get casino deals in one...

    The White House is exasperated with the major broadcast networks – ABC, CBS and NBC -- for skipping out on President Barack Obama’s Thursday primetime address on his executive actions on immigration. “In 2006, Bush gave a 17 minute speech that was televised by all three networks that was about deploying 6000 national guard troops to the border. Obama is making a 10 minute speech that will have a vastly greater impact on the issue. And none of the networks are doing it. We can’t believe they were aggrieved that we announced this on Facebook,” a senior administration official told...

Zimmerman has claimed self-defense, invoking the Sunshine State’s “Stand Your Ground” law which has also come under intense scrutiny in the wake of the incident.

Before making his offensive connection, Williams highlighted his background covering the police. Regarding Limbaugh's comments about Sandra Fluke, the journalist linked: "...

    As thousands of people, many with young children, came to the Boston Common on Wednesday morning to participate in the Tea Party and hear Sarah Palin and others give speeches, they were greeted by an army of left-wing thugs spewing hatred, racism, and obscene messages. To their credit, most people just ignored the crashers, even though they did their best to disrupt the event and intimidate everyone there. In addition to holding signs, many of them screamed, chanted slogans and threw eggs at the podium. All this was virtually ignored by the Boston media. The average person wouldn't even know...

    In honor of tax day, the Media Research Center (MRC) is releasing a report on how the press ignored, then disparaged the Tea Party movement. MRC, a conservative watchdog group, analyzed every mention of the Tea Party on ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening newscasts, as well as on Sunday talk shows. The group produced a report aimed to coincide with Tea Party protests on April 15. House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs once called Tea Partiers members of an “astro-turf” — rather than grassroots — movement (but that was before Scott Brown won Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat). And the...

    In the mind's eye of the conservative movement, the Tea Party phenomenon right now is maybe the crucial factor in slowing socialism in Washington, on everything from the federal health care takeover to the hidden taxes of cap-and-trade legislation. It's also a fascinating visual. When was the last time you saw such a spontaneous eruption of conservative grassroots anger, coast to coast? On both counts, the Tea Party movement should be cause for massive television coverage. Except for one thing. It's a conservative uprising, so it gets different treatment. It's ignored as long as possible, and when it's no longer...

    While many Americans believe the national press is biased toward the left, a more damning charge is now being debated: Are U.S. media outlets actually corrupt? Those who believe they are point to the cheerleading of Barack Obama's presidential campaign and to the recent reportage on the Tea Party movement. As you may know, the Tea Party people have been branded in some media quarters as a bunch of racist, far-right loons. TV commentators on MSNBC and CNN have actually called the Tea Party folks dirty names on the air -- all in an attempt to diminish the growing influence...

    Has it really been 100 days of fawning press coverage of President Barack Obama? Actually, it’s a lot more. It began at least a year before he wrested the 2008 Democratic nomination out of Hillary Clinton’s hands. But the coverage of the “first 100 days” may have sunk to a new low. It seems only yesterday when mainstream news outlets first started lobbing softballs at 1600 Pennsylvania’s newest occupant. But the media template on the new president, as conservative talker Rush Limbaugh so often dubs it, was perfected in just three short months. Cool. Self assured. Calm. Masterful. And the...

    When Chris Wallace replaced Tony Snow as the host of “Fox News Sunday” in December 2003, the network appeared to take a more moderate approach to Sunday talk. Unlike Snow, a former Republican speechwriter, Wallace’s broadcasting résumé included nearly three decades at mainstream media staples ABC and NBC. And Wallace even snagged Howard Dean — who hadn’t been on the Fox network in five years — as his first guest; fellow presidential hopefuls John F. Kerry, Dick Gephardt and John Edwards rounded out the month. But this election cycle, said Wallace, some Democrats aren’t “playing ball” with him — or...

    "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." — George Santayana from "Reason in Common Sense" Despite the hope that we can learn from past mistakes and not repeat them, history suggests it is counterintuitive to actually believe it could be so. We won every military engagement of the Vietnam War yet Walter Cronkite and the American media conspired with the enemy to do what the North Vietnamese could not do on the battlefield. General Võ Nguyên Giáp, who was the commander of the North Vietnamese army, has published his memoirs. He has confirmed what most Americans...

    Dear Sir/Madam: I am sure that MSNBC is facing a firestorm of criticism over Erin Burnett's characterization of the President of the United States as a "monkey". This letter is sent in order to join the chorus of protest over this vile, degrading slur directed at the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States during wartime. Her half-hearted "apology" which she delivered recently was completely inadequate to remedy this situation. If any news reporter said the same thing about any Democrat, they would be gone yesterday. I am demanding that Erin Burnett be fired, immediately. The head of...

    Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said on Thursday the U.S. economy has been resilient in the face of credit market strains but it faces risks on both the growth and inflation fronts. Mary Altaffer / AP Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. "Financial market volatility and strains have persisted," Bernanke said in testimony prepared for delivery to the congressional Joint Economic Committee. "In addition, further sharp increases in crude oil prices have put renewed upward pressure on inflation and may impose further restraint on economic activity." Bernanke said that when Fed policy-makers met on Oct. 30-31, they saw both downside risks...
  • Tabloid Attack Dogs Seek Next Victims: KBR and Blackwater

    Before the smoke cleared from the attack on a Blackwater security detail in Iraq on September 16, 2007, the mainstream media began its relentless attacks on the security contractors who have risked their lives – and in some cases given their lives - to serve our country in Iraq. Their assignment, among other things, is to protect their principals - reporters, ambassadors, Senators, Congressmen and even Secretary of State Condolezza Rice - in war-torn Iraq. It is not lost among those of us who endured the same frenzied and sensational journalism while driving trucks in Iraq for KBR in 2004/2005...

    DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Dodge City has a rich history as an Old West frontier town, where cowboys and gunslingers could take a break from the trail and get their fill of saloons and brothels. Today, the tidy town built on meatpacking and rodeos is again plagued by gunfighters. But this time, they're in street gangs, some of which have second-generation members as young as 11. The drug of choice is methamphetamine, and the weapons range from automatic rifles to baseball bats.

    Minuteman effort serves as a warning EQUAL TIME: Dan Stein says Americans are tired of immigration laws being ignored. Few things are more misleading than the frequently made argument that it is simply impossible to control America's borders. Nothing could be farther from the truth - and the Minuteman Project demonstrated this in the plainest terms imaginable. A few hundred everyday Americans in lawn chairs armed only with walkie-talkies were able to curtail a substantial amount of the illegal traffic routinely crossing our borders. In the process, they humiliated national politicians, presidents of United States and Mexico and a wide...
