    Claas Relotius, who was once named CNN Journalist of the Year, resigned from his job as a writer and editor at German news magazine Der Spiegel after confessing to purveying fake news on a “grand scale.” Relotius, 33, first came under internal suspicion at Der Spiegel after the publication of “Hunter’s border,” an article about an American vigilante group on the U.S.-Mexico border. The article’s co-author, Juan Moreno, grew suspicious and collected evidence against Relotius during a subsequent trip to America on another story.
  • Conservative columnist: Sanders should be shunned after White House job

    Conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin tore into White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Sunday, saying she should be shunned from her next job for her false and misleading claims. “Sarah Huckabee Sanders is so concerned that people aren’t nice to her,” Rubin told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on "AM Joy." “And people like me think that — not that she should be harassed — but that she should be shunned. The reason is that she lies.” “She attacks our free press and no respectable employer should hire her after this term,” Rubin continued. “Also, no university and no...

    On Friday, an agitated Donny Deutsch reached the end of his rope on the set of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Deutsch, who appeared deeply affected by a clip of President Trump calling The New York Times “fake news,” eschewed the traditional combination of liberal snark and false superiority characteristic of the show’s other panelists, opting instead to go with unmitigated rage. Deutsch’s rant kicked off with the assertion that Republicans questioning the objectivity of the Mueller investigation were “undermining the FBI and undermining the news.” “Forget the obstruction,” he continued, “forget the actual charge. This continual assault on the things that...

    The White House press secretary has always been a spin artist. Spinning is not lying, Clinton press secretary Dee Dee Myers once said, but rather "marshaling the facts in service of an argument."

    A Texas grand jury has decided that a GIF can be just as deadly as a gun or knife. The U.S Department of Justice and a Dallas grand jury issued indictments Monday against John Rayne Rivello, who is accused of intentionally tweeting a Graphic Interchange Format (GIF) animation designed to Newsweek journalist Kurt Eichenwald in order to provoke an epileptic seizure. The grand jury's indictment refers to the GIF as "a deadly weapon," along with a tweet, an "electronic device," and Rivello's hands.
  • Dan Rather: 'People will die' from Trump budget plan

    Veteran journalist and former CBS News anchor Dan Rather predicted dire outcomes if the White House's federal budget proposal were to take effect, including death. "Rather than investing in what will truly make America great, this philosophy pounds its chest with false bravado," Rather said in a Facebook note. "People will die because of this budget. People will suffer. Diseases will spread, and cures will not be found. ... our nation will be much darker and more dangerous." "'Cruel and unusual,' the phrase rings in my head as I read the press reports of President Donald Trump's proposed budget," he...

    Fox News anchor Chris Wallace cautioned his colleagues and the network's viewers Sunday that President Trump's latest attack on the media had gone too far. "Look, we're big boys. We criticize presidents. They want to criticize us back, that's fine," Wallace said Sunday morning on "Fox & Friends." "But when he said that the fake news media is not my enemy, it's the enemy of the American people, I believe that crosses an important line."
  • Dan Rather: When Trump Lies, We Have To Call Him Out

    01/22/2017 3:42:02 PM PST · by Kaslin · 108 replies ^ | January 22, 2017 | Matt Vespa
    Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather is teaching an online course in journalism called “finding the truth in the news” at UDemy. Now, he’s taken to Facebook to say that the media, the American people, and the political class has to call out President Trump on his lies. No, this isn’t the Onion.“These are not normal times. These are extraordinary times. And extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures,” wrote Rather. “What can we do? We can all step up and say simply and without equivocation. "A lie, is a lie, is a lie!" And if someone won't say it, those...

    Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields made headlines last week when she claimed Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski grabbed her and threw her down on the ground at the Jupiter, Florida victory speech on Tuesday night. Video now proves that Fields exaggerated the story for some strange reason.
  • "UFO" Reportedly Spotted Over Naples Condo Building Pool

    Across the Everglades, all our Western neighbors in Naples are talking about is a purported UFO sighting this week at a condo building pool. Because if advanced life forms traveled from billions of light years away, their first stop would undoubtedly be a condo building pool in Naples. The spotting was made on security camera footage and first reported by security officer Debralee Thomas. She took her story to NBC 2. "It was down on the ground but some of that webbing was longer and it made a funnel down into the pool. Whatever it was doing in the pool,...

    JOSH WOLF, the blogger who has spent some six months in prison for refusing to hand over a video he took of a violent July 8, 2005, protest in the Mission District of San Francisco to a federal grand jury, is not a journalist. He is a blogger with an agenda and a camera, who sold a "selected portion" of the video of the demonstration, which left a San Francisco police officer with a fractured skull, to KRON-TV. The day after the melee, Wolf called himself on his videoblog an "artist, an activist, an anarchist and an archivist." He does...

    Josh Wolf, a blogger who refused to give a videotape of a San Francisco anarchist protest to a federal grand jury, achieves an unwanted distinction today, when he becomes the longest-imprisoned journalist for contempt of court in U.S. history. Wolf, 24, is spending his 169th day at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, surpassing the imprisonment of Vanessa Leggett, a Texas freelancer who defied a grand jury's subpoena in 2001 for notes from a book she was writing about a murder case. Leggett was freed when the grand jury's term expired. The grand jury in Wolf's case, which is investigating...
