  • WaPo Staffers Fighting for Better Wages Told to Sit Down, Shut Up, and Be Grateful for Jeff Bezos

    The narrative casting Jeff Bezos as a transformative media baron reached new heights in 2017. His Washington Post consistently set the political agenda while claiming two straight years of profitability. Bezos himself glowed on the red carpet as an improbable journalism hero when Steven Spielberg’s The Post, a fictionalized account of the newspaper’s publication of The Pentagon Papers, opened in December. Bezos is worth $111 billion. He is the richest man in the world. But over the past eight months, his prized media outlet has repeatedly stymied requests for better pay and benefits from the employees who’ve driven its renaissance....
  • Why Do Some Freepers Take the Washington Post Seriously?

    11/26/2017 8:24:56 AM PST · by pinochet · 30 replies
    It has been reported that a Washington Post reporter, Janell Ross, attended a top secret donor meeting of liberal donors organized by George Soros. http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2017/11/24/washington-post-reporter-caught-plotting-liberal-agenda-with-billionaire-george-soros.html For many years, freepers have denounced the anti-conservative bias in the Washington post. Freepers invented the term Washington Compost to describe the newspaper because if its anti-conservative bias. Then why did some freepers take the newspaper reports on Judge Moore seriously? If this is a newspaper whose reporters conspire with liberal donors at secret meetings, why should the Compost be treated more seriously than a press release from the Democratic National Committee? The Compost was...
  • Once-reputable Newsweek compares President Trump to Charles Manson

    Newsweek continues to embarrass the legacy of the once-reputable publication with anti-Trump hit pieces on a regular basis, but a recent story titled, “How murderer Charles Manson and Donald Trump used language to gain followers,” takes things to a dark new level. The left-leaning publication literally compared a convicted mass murderer and cult leader to the President of the United States. Former President of the American Psychoanalytic Association Mark Smaller told Newsweek that part of Manson’s power lay in the type of language he used. “A charismatic leader knows how to speak to people in a way that will emotionally...

    Inspired by Francis commemorating the Reformation on Halloween of last year, Ecumenical events commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation are now coming to a diocese near you! Just a few examples include Grand Rapids, MI, Saskatoon, Canada, Pittsburgh, PA,  Lansing, MI., and Lima, OH. Other dioceses like Orlando. FL and Pueblo, CO already enjoyed their commemorations earlier this year. Far from condemning these events, the USCCB is actually facilitating and encouraging them by posting a “2017 Commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation Resource Guide” on their website. As the post-Conciliar Church leadership moves left at breakneck speed,...

    As expected by the bien-pensants of the mainstream media, a New York federal district judge dismissed Sarah Palin's libel suit against the New York Times. The decision reached what is, for the Progressive media, a politically correct result, which is that a scruffy conservative like Palin cannot be allowed to sue the New York Times.

    The sale of the New York Daily News for a dollar isn't the death of the sleazy leftist tabloid. It died a while back.   Today, the Daily News is best known for its trolling front pages. That and bizarre trolling hate pieces from a staff of repurposed and unqualified trash like Linda Stasi, a former Post movie critic turned hate spewing bigot, and sportswriter Mike Lupica, trying to churn out political commentary. Stasi summoned a boycott of the already failing paper when she blamed one of the victims of the Muslim terror attack in San Bernardino because he was a...

    A federal judge dismissed Sarah Palin’s defamation lawsuit against The New York Times on Tuesday, according to multiple media reports. Palin sued The Times for defamation after an editorial in the newspaper on mass shootings tied an ad run by the former vice presidential nominee to the 2011 shooting of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (R-Az.).
  • The New York Times is the epicenter of the spiraling decline in the American media

    08/27/2017 2:29:10 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 25 replies
    The New York Times represents a special case in the spiraling loss of credibility among the American mainstream media. For generations now, it has been the dominant newspaper in America; the most well-known and the most influential. It’s motto is “All the news that’s fit to print.” But it also has been a leader in the leftward lurch in journalism, which has now turned into a full-throttle route of any remnants of fair and objective reporting. The Times has made itself into a thought-leader of the American progressive movement and an overt propaganda arm of the Democratic Party. It drips...

    New York Times ^ | August 14, 2017 | by Frank Bruni
    We saw Donald Trump’s true colors on Saturday, when he was given the chance — a ready-made moment for presidential grace — to denounce the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Va., and instead found wrongdoing “on many sides.” That was Trump minus the pressure and the planning. That was his initial instinct, his first impulse. We saw a different palette at a lectern in the White House on early Monday afternoon, but it was pure artifice, and muted and unpersuasive because of that. We should also note that he began his brief statement on Monday by congratulating himself on the American economy...

    Let’s just step back and admire this situation for a moment. One or more editorial writers at the NY Times, the folks who speak with the paper’s voice of authority on every subject you can imagine, will plead with a judge to believe they did not know the basic facts of a story they were writing about, including facts reported in their own paper! The Times’ defense is: We so dumb. I find this indescribably delicious, especially given that it was Paul Krugman who used his perch at the NY Times to lead this false charge against Palin back in...

    A nightmare is unfolding for the New York Times that could well be devastating for the collapsing credibility and mindshare of the entire progressive media. In a court filing by defense counsel for the New York Times, the scope of the discovery being sought by Palin's legal team was revealed. If the court allows, the story that it could tell might well be all too revealing. Kaja Whitehouse of the New York Post spotted the public disclosure. In a motion arguing that the case be dismissed, lawyers for the New York Times complained that Palin's legal team has served notice...

    Contemplating life after devastating loss to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton joked that she would like to be buried with copies of all the newspapers that endorsed her. “I want to be buried with my editorial endorsements,” Clinton said in an interview with New York Times Magazine. “I want an open casket and they can all be piled on top of me. You won’t even be able to see my body.”

    If you vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, you’re voting in favor of “climate catastrophe,” according to liberal Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson. “Anyone who takes climate change seriously had better do everything possible to keep Donald Trump out of the White House,” Robinson wrote in a recent op-ed on why Trump would be bad for the fight against global warming. “Global warming is affecting weather patterns worldwide,” Robinson wrote.

    Big Journalism (Breitbart) ^ | August 31, 2016 | Ann Coulter
    Just when you think the media could not possibly become more loathsome, the Fourth Estate bullies prove you wrong again. The Washington Post’s latest ugliness was to exploit the disability of a newspaper reporter in order to smear the Republican nominee for president. Then — and this is the least surprising part of the story — the Post lied about it. Other than the subject of that paragraph — which I slyly switched from Trump to the media — that is an exact paraphrase of the Post’s opening lines from an editorial hawking the media’s most successful lie about Donald...

    Sunday’s Washington Post Magazine has two cover stories, one for Bill Clinton and one (if you turn it upside down on the other side) for Melania Trump. As expected, Bill Clinton is going to get a gushier treatment. Post writer Neely Tucker is so tender to the president that he mangles a fact, and the copy editors (also tender hearts) allowed it. “Fact Checker” Glenn Kessler will not be assigned to this story. Tucker wrote, “He allegedly cheated on his wife, repeatedly, even in the Oval Office, and with a young woman who wasn’t that much older than their daughter.”This...

    About 10 or 15 minutes after the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its 5-4 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, which made gay marriage legal across the country, including the 13 states that up until now had banned it, a colleague of mine walked into the PennLive newsroom. A smile lit up her face and there were tears in her eyes. Up until about 10 a.m. on Friday, my gay colleague sat on pins and needles, waiting to see if nine lawyers were about to throw the life and her and her partner into absolute upheaval. We embraced and I offered...
  • NY Times Shows It's Bias (Fired Seattle HS VP front page story, March for Life, back-page no-story)

    Bill Donohue comments on bias at the New York Times: There is no newspaper in the United States that is more extreme in its defense of abortion-on-demand and homosexual rights than the New York Times. It regards the defense of partial-birth abortion to be a “moderate” position, and its reporters have openly bragged about the record number of homosexuals who write feature stories. Today’s edition offers more support to the accusation that it is biased in its coverage on these issues. There is a front-page story about a homosexual vice principal in Seattle who was asked to step down when...
