    Thursday's New York Times has a report on how the highly suspicious dossier alleging that Donald Trump was compromised by Russian intelligence agents came into existence. Among the other interesting revelations was that the dubious opposition research report was put together by the research firm Fusion GPS: The story began in September 2015, when a wealthy Republican donor who strongly opposed Mr. Trump put up the money to hire a Washington research firm run by former journalists, Fusion GPS, to compile a dossier about the real estate magnate's past scandals and weaknesses, according to a person familiar with the effort....

    In an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, Attorney General Loretta Lynch says that on Monday, the FBI will release edited transcripts of the 911 calls made by the Orlando nightclub shooter to the police during his rampage. "What we're not going to do is further proclaim this man's pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda," Lynch said. "We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to the Islamic State]." The Washington Post reported last week that the gunman made multiple phone calls while holding hostages: "The gunman who opened fire inside a nightclub...
  • Ex-State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki: It wasn't me

    Washington Examiner ^ | 6/1/16 5:21 PM | Susan Crabtree
    White House Communications Director Jen Psaki said Wednesday that she had nothing to do with the decision to selectively edit a State Department press briefing video to clip out a discussion about the Iran nuclear agreement. Psaki was a spokeswoman for the State Department in 2013, when a video was quietly edited to remove a portion of a press briefing dealing with the Iran deal. On Wednesday afternoon, current spokesman John Kirby said it’s been determined that an official from State’s Bureau Public Affairs directed the video to be edited. But he said it isn’t clear who did it, or...
  • MSNBC caught using edited clip from rally to attack Mitt Romney

    In an effort to downplay Romney's support at a rally in Dayton, Ohio, MSNBC used an edited video to make it appear as though the crowd was screaming "Ryan, Ryan," Joel B. Pollack reported at on Friday. But a closer look at the actual unedited footage from CSPAN tells a much different story. MSNBC first aired the video on Wednesday, "prompting an embarrassed Joe Scarborough to mutter 'Oh, sweet Jesus' and a purse-lipped Mika Brzezinski to ask 'What’s wrong with those people,'” The Blaze reported on Thursday. Video: MSNBC caught doctoring clip from Romney/Ryan rally Beckett Adams wrote that...
  • Another MSNBC Scandal? Blaze Readers at Campaign Event Claim Network Misled in Video of Rally Chant

    On Wednesday, MSNBC aired a clip of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney leading what looks like a failed “Romney-Ryan” chant at a campaign stop in Ohio on Tuesday, prompting an embarrassed Joe Scarborough to mutter “Oh, sweet Jesus” and a purse-lipped Mika Brzezinski to ask “What’s wrong with those people?” You can see our coverage of Scarborough’s outburst here, but we’ve included the clip as a refresher:

    Sorry for the vanity. Numerous people have been posting at various sites that they have heard from people at the game that there was a loud chorus of boos for 0bama. (AKA Lamar, the limp wristed javeline thrower from Revenge of the Nerds). There may have been an effort to either pipe in cheers over the public address system, edit out some of the boos or both. Anyone else getting this?

    BBC in more trouble over edited pieces By Patrick Phelvin , Sunday Telegraph Last Updated: 5:14pm BST 15/07/2007 The BBC was involved in a fresh row about doctored footage yesterday after it admitted mixing up the chronology of a documentary about Gordon Brown. Just days before Director General Mark Thompson is hauled before the BBC Trust to explain the royal fiasco, it emerged that the sequence of a Newsnight film had also been altered. The Treasury has complained to the corporation that the 12-minute piece, on attempts by documentary-maker Jamie Campbell to secure an interview with Brown during the leadership...
  • Jonah Goldberg's Column Is Curiously Redacted

    Editorial page editors at the McClatchy Co.-owned Minneapolis Star-Tribune removed king-sized hunks of syndicated columnist Jonah Goldberg’s recent column about New York Times, et al. revealing national secrets and compromising national security, during the war on terror. That the Star-Tribune runs the Goldberg column periodically on its op-ed page is a bit of a surprise, although other more or less conservative writers appear there, too— e.g., Will, Charen and May, amid the parade of Dowds, Ivins and Krugmans. Perhaps Goldberg’s sometime finding ink is a token to break the monotony of mostly leftist palaver? His nifty column on the New...
  • CA: Former Feinstein staffer edited Wikipedia entries (cut references to Feinstein's net worth)

    Washington -- Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office acknowledged today that a former staff member had removed references to the California Democrat's net worth on the Internet encyclopedia Wikipedia, as well as altered entries about her husband Richard Blum's Chinese investments in 1997. A former staff member "independently went on to Wikipedia to correct some material he felt was not appropriate," said Feinstein spokesman Howard Gantman. "The senator was not even aware of it." The changes to the biographies of members of Congress, allegedly by their staffs, have again raised questions about the credibility of the online encyclopedia that has become an...

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) - The names of Syrian President Bashar Assad's brother and brother-in-law and other top Syrians were edited out of the final report of a U.N. investigation as helping to plot the assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, U.N. diplomats said Friday. Germany prosecutor Detlev Mehlis, who led the U.N. probe, told a hastily called news conference that he decided to delete the names when he learned Thursday morning the report would be made public because the Syrians had only been identified by a witness interviewed by his investigators. Since their alleged involvement had not been corroborated,...

    Sinclair...No Guts, No Glory! Written by JB Williams ©2004-10-23 The much anticipated broadcast of Stolen Honor turned out to be a non-report. By the time Sinclair Broadcasting Company finished editing to suit the Kerry camp and the DNC, almost all of the story ended up on the cutting room floor… The most important questions surrounding Senator John Kerry’s fitness for office of Commander-in-Chief remain unasked and unanswered, even after the Sinclair broadcast. Why has Senator John Kerry refused to confront his accusers personally, even after being chased across the country by Sinclair? If he is right, and has nothing to...
