  • Asian-American Reporter Implies Trump Is Racist And The Anti-American Media Run With It

    The Federalist ^ | May 12, 2020 | Kylee Zempel
    The racism narrative overshadowed the much more important point reporter Weijia Jiang highlighted, which is the media's consistent defense of China and downplaying of American exceptionalism. The media establishment has become an absolute clown show, with CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang cast as the ringleader during Monday’s press briefing circus. Instead of asking President Donald Trump any relevant question as a means to better inform Americans amid the pandemic, Jiang opted for grandstanding with a question about as frivolous as the infamous “Is Chinese food racist?”“You’ve said many times that the U.S. is doing far better than any...

    Another sudden and unexpected factor will transform this years elections. Many states, cities and counties are about to, suddenly, run out of money. Wages wont be paid. Services wont be delivered. Institutions will shut down abruptly. Many state colleges may fold. And yet most state and local political and administrative leaders just sit and watch. Voters will not be pleased. Millions of American workers filed for unemployment insurance during the past two weeks. That is a record and represents a collapse of our local economies. Across the country, in every state, county and city, businesses have been shut down, and...
  • Rand Paul on Graham: "Sad" When People Use "Drape Of Patriotism" To Question Patriotism Of Others

    In an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Sen. Rand Paul said the only way you can stop people who believe the president has the ultimate authority on war like Lindsey Graham is defunding a war. Paul was responding to Graham's accusation that he "empowering the enemy" by playing games with the "unconstitutional" War Powers Act. Paul called the Trump administration's reasoning for the Soleimani strike an "insult to the constitution." "I think it's sad when people have this fake sort of drape of patriotism, and anybody that disagrees with them is not a patriot," Paul said Wednesday. "For him to...
  • Newseum hailed free press, but got beaten by free museums

    WASHINGTON (AP) In 2008, the Newseum a private museum dedicated to exploring modern history as told through the eyes of journalists opened on prime Washington real estate. Sitting almost equidistant between the White House and the Capitol on Pennsylvania Avenue, the glass-walled building became instantly recognizable for its multi-story exterior rendition of the First Amendment. Eleven years later that experiment is coming to an end. After years of financial difficulties, the Newseum will close its doors Tuesday. Were proud of how we did our storytelling, said Sonya Gavankar, the outgoing director of public relations. We changed the...

    Rep. Adam Schiff's Democratic impeachment hearings are under way -- airing live all over the dial -- and the liberals are quite upset that America couldn't care less. NBC News spurred rage on Twitter for daring to admit online that the first two witnesses "lacked the pizzazz necessary to capture public attention." The Washington Free Beacon posted some hilarious tweets railing against this reality. One read: "My heart was racing at points. I had to turn off the radio and calm down a few times." Another: "When I tried to turn them off, my 15 yr old yelled at me...

    For years, conservatives have pointed out the liberal biases of the media, but the Trump era has brought the subject into focus never seen before now. The medias reaction to the death of ISIS leader al-Baghdadi may have been a turning point. Progressives in media are so dedicated to opposing Trump, that the Washington Post eulogized the terrorist with more warmth than they have ever afforded President Trump, or even certain high school students caught on camera wearing MAGA hats. CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, and the other usual suspects also had spectacularly bad takes on the death of...

    They just cant help themselves. The liberal media does it every single day. They are drawn like moths to the flame for the D.C. story of the day. This week they were enamored with the House Democrats antics and their latest stunt. Republicans, with President Donald J. Trumps leadership, remain focused on what the American people elected us to do. But even the media could not ignore the historic nature of the April jobs numbers released by the Labor Department on Friday. The top level numbers are impressive on their own. The United States economy added 263,000 jobs last month,...

    In this scruffy, high-desert town encircled by prairies and potato farms, Sen. Cory Gardner drew shouts of approval last week for his message that Democrats are shoving the country toward socialism. Thats not what government is or what it should be, he told about 200 Alamosa County Republicans at a barbecue fundraiser in a National Guard armory. We have to stand up and fight. Are you going to join me in this fight? For Gardner and other Republicans making the same pitch , including President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the key question is whether it will...

    I recently gave an interview to the New Statesman, on the assumption that, as the magazines former wine critic I would be treated with respect, and that the journalist, George Eaton, was sincere in wanting to talk to me about my intellectual life. Not for the first time I am forced to acknowledge what a mistake it is to address young leftists as though they were responsible human beings. Here is my brief response to an unscrupulous collection of out of context remarks, some of them merely words designed to accuse me of thought-crimes, and to persuade the government that...

    Myths usually sound fascinating. Myths are things that never happened, stories that aren’t true, though often we wish they were, for various reasons.As a young boy, I wanted to know if Big Foot was an actual animal. I saw almost every documentary that claimed to show evidence of Big Foot’s existence. And don’t get me started on flying saucers.Despite its place in popular Internet theory, most people—including me—consider Big Foot continue a myth. No hiker walks out into the woods looking for Big Foot.Unfortunately, some myths come camouflaged as truths. They do so for many reasons and aided by the...

    Another clueless reporter is *shocked* that the Jussie Smollett story turned out to be a hoax:..... If there was a "national outrage" over the dubious incident, it was limited to gullible left-wing journalists, celebrities, politicians, and activists. The "narrative" only seemed "cut-and-dry" to people who were looking at the case through lenses clouded by their anti-Trump bias. It seemed made up to those of us who noticed that Smollett's allegations were outlandish, implausible, and riddled with inconsistencies from the get-go. Yet even as his story started falling apart (which happened almost immediately), the national media clung to their precious narrative....

    What the hell!? This alarms hell out of me. I remember reading about the 93 total people, only 8 or 9 of which were actual Congress Critters. They mentioned Pelosi's family included on the plane. The "Source URL" link above is to a Free Republic thread on the topic. That thread provides a CNN link. The FR thread was posted at 5:24 PM on 01/18/2019 (is it safe to assume PST?). The linked CNN article was "Updated 7:02 PM ET, Fri January 18, 2019". That would have been 4:02 PM PT. So, today I'm in a discussion about this in...

    President Donald Trump and the White House communications team revealed that a U.S. Navy SEAL team was deployed to Iraq after the president secretly traveled to the region to meet with American forces serving in a combat zone for the first time since being elected to office. While the commander-in-chief can declassify information, usually the specific special operations unit is not revealed to the American public, especially while U.S. service members are deployed. Official photographs and videos typically blur the individual faces of special operation forces, due to the sensitive nature of their job. The presidents video posted Wednesday did...

    Veteran journalist Dan Rather said on Friday that President Trumps false statements about and attacks on the media are "straight out of Orwell." The former longtime CBS News anchor told CNNs Don Lemon that Trump is "authoritarian" and wants people to believe that "the one and only truth comes from him." [Snip] "As several people have said before me, he is not just attacking the truth, he wants to annihilate the truth," the former anchor added. "He wants to move us completely into the post-truth political era in which theres no such thing as objective facts." Rather added that there...

    Long before fake news became a hot topic, liberals in the mainstream media were practicing their own special brand of fake news. They weren't misleading the public for malicious reasons; it was quite the opposite. They were simply showing off their humanity. The best examples of this fake news-for-a-good-cause go back to the 1980s, when two of the biggest stories in America involved the rise in homelessness (in the age of Reagan) and the national scare over a new disease called AIDS. I was a correspondent at CBS News at the time and I witnessed firsthand how -- and why...

    Special counsel Robert Muellers team has questioned several witnesses about millions of dollars in donations to President Donald Trumps inauguration committee last year, including questions about donors with connections to Russia, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, sources with direct knowledge told ABC News. Those interviewed included longtime Trump friend and confidant Thomas Barrack, who oversaw the fundraising effort, as well as individuals familiar with the massive inaugural fund, according to sources with direct knowledge.

    CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter offers a weekly guest list full of liberal journalists, and then occasionally he interviews a conservative....if the objective is to offer a conservative underlining one of Stelter's favorite points. That happened again on Christmas Eve, when S.E. Cupp, host of a talk show on HLN (a sister network of CNN), sounded the company talking points on how the "mainstream media" are a "pillar of democracy" and attacked Fox News as resembling a "very friendly" dictator's channel. First, Cupp explained to Stelter that the media's ardor against Trump has sharpened the sense among conservatives that...

    The network news divisions boast about how much they care about the truth and then rage against President Trump when he calls them makers of "fake news." But when it comes to the politicians they adore, especially those they wish would run for president, the truth takes a back seat. Exhibit A right now is Elizabeth Warren, who falsely claimed in a professional directory to be descended from Cherokee Indians, so as to be listed as a minority when she was hired as a professor. When Trump makes fun of her by calling her "Pocahontas," the networks get oh so...

    CNN political reporter Daniella Diaz sent a tweet on Monday pointing out that President Trump and Sen. Mitch McConnell locked hands while walking up stairs at the White House following their Rose Garden press conference. Diaz seemed to be mocking the Republican duo but while followers quickly pointed out that the Kentucky senator is a polio survivor, the tweet remains on her feed nearly 24 hours later. That hand-lock between Trump and McConnell, though, Diaz wrote with video of the incident.

    In todays 21st-century digital climate, newspapers are looking for creative ways to cut costs that go beyond trimming staff and cutting page sizes. Print is dead. Or so some say. In reality, the industry, like many others, is going through a massive transformation. Newspapers were once the primary sometimes the only form of communication and a mainstay of the community. Today, we get our news from a variety of sources, but community journalism is still here to stay. That means newspapers were (and still are) big business. But in todays 21st-century digital climate, newspapers are looking for creative...
