    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said on Saturday that he "fully admit[s]" Twitter employees share a largely left-leaning bias after facing accusations that conservatives are discriminated against on the social media platform. In an interview that aired Saturday on CNN, Dorsey said his company has a responsibility to be open about its political viewpoints, but to operate without bias when applying content policies to users. "We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is...is more left-leaning," Dorsey says. "But the real question behind the question is, are we doing something according to...

    On the one-year anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville protests, white supremacists and radical leftists known as Antifa descended on the Virginia town once more to commit more violence. Late Saturday night, NBC News reporter Cal Perry and his crew were in the thick of it as Antifa members ganged up on them and attacked. The next morning, NBC’s Sunday Today ignored the attack and suggested the media was simply “heckled” by their assaulters. On Twitter, Perry was documenting the protesters as they marched through the streets of college town when they started to get “very aggressive with the media” and...

    CNN’s Jim Acosta is becoming the story of the week. Well, at least one of them; the Trump White House is a flurry of activity. Acosta was at President Trump’s rally in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday, where supporters of the president heckled him. Yes, they chanted “CNN sucks.” Yes, a few middle fingers were thrown. So what? Suck it up. Acosta stayed and did his job, so at least he has the gumption to—you know—take a few punches. And he obviosuly wasn't in mortal danger because he did stay. The alleged abuse was patty cake stuff. It was no different...

    According to a new YouGov survey, 41 percent of Americans think the press treats President Donald Trump unfairly, while only 32 percent thinks the press treats Trump fairly. The survey asked, “How fairly do you think the national press has treated Donald Trump in general?” The respondents answered with either “very fair,” “more fair than unfair,” “about equal,” “more unfair than fair,” or “very unfair.” The survey found that 14 percent of respondents said the media treat Trump “very fair” and 18 percent said “more fair than unfair.” On the other hand, 15 percent said Trump is treated “more unfair...

    Veteran journalist Dan Rather said on Friday that President Trump’s false statements about and attacks on the media are "straight out of Orwell." The former longtime CBS News anchor told CNN’s 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 there’s no such thing as objective facts." Rather added that there...

    The publisher of the New York Times said Sunday he “implored” President Donald Trump at a private White House meeting this month to reconsider his broad attacks on journalists, calling the president’s anti-press rhetoric “not just divisive but increasingly dangerous.” In a statement, publisher A.G. Sulzberger said he decided to comment publicly after Trump revealed their off-the-record meeting to his more than 53 million Twitter followers on Sunday. Trump’s aides had requested that the July 20 meeting not be made public, Sulzberger said.[snip] “Had a very good and interesting meeting at the White House with A.G. Sulzberger, Publisher of the...

    Just as the man said, if we want our nation back and alive again in one piece, we should start by getting 'out of CNN Land'. With the help of God, it is past time to man the lifeboats! People are beginning to wake up to the fact that the biggest and most seditious ‘collusion’ in our nation today is the collusion between leftist politicians and the liberal media. I have written several articles about that partnership - collusion - between the liberal media/entertainment empire and leftist politicians. But people, being the sheep that we are, are slow to catch...

    At a Wednesday press conference in the White House Rose Garden, President Trump and E.U. Chief Executive Jean-Claude Juncker announced that the two trade partners were moving forward on a plan to end their trade war. Juncker’s presence at the White House illustrated that it was the E.U. that caved under pressure, but the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were having none of it and refused to give Trump the win. During World News Tonight, ABC was so against declaring Trump the victor that they insisted he was the one that failed under pressure. “To the President tonight,...

    By noon on Monday, Bavaria Bierhaus, a downtown bar on Stone Street, a short walk from the offices of the New York Daily News at 4 New York Plaza, was already filling up with day-drinkers who had just been fired from the century-old tabloid, along with a few colleagues who have managed—at least for the moment—to hold onto their jobs. “It’s all a blur right now,” said a staffer who narrowly avoided being axed in what colleagues variously described as “a massacre” and “a bloodbath.”

    BARNSLEY, England – President Trump's three-day visit to the United Kingdom will be greeted by throngs of protesters marching through London, many carrying expletive-laden placards and with an enormous “Trump baby” balloon flying overhead. Meanwhile, liberal media voices in the U.S. and U.K. assure their audiences that Brits are overwhelmingly united against Trump and his policies. But here in the north of England, particularly among those who supported Brexit -- Britain’s departure from the European Union -- opinions of Trump are far more nuanced, with many even offering strong support of the president.

    Google’s YouTube says it is taking several steps to ensure the veracity of news on its service by cracking down on misinformation and supporting news organizations. The company said Monday it will make “authoritative” news sources more prominent, especially in the wake of breaking news events when misinformation can spread quickly. At such times, YouTube will begin showing users short text previews of news stories in video search results, as well as warnings that the stories can change. The goal is to counter the fake videos that can proliferate immediately after shootings, natural disasters and other major happenings. For example,...

    Donald as I read your comments about all of the crapola on the East coast, there's one that always seems to get a pass. The wretched Los Angeles Times. Connect them up with those papers, the recently embarrassed, again, Time magazine and all the rest of that rot. The L.A. Times I would submit is the most biased, leftist leaning piece of trash in this country, bar none. Every single headline is twisted and skewered to make it come out against you. It's always something like "Trump saves 5 Nuns in crosswalk, but why not six?" How could he...Every headlines...

    The New York Times reassigned Ali Watkins, the star reporter who was accused being romantically involved with at least two potential sources, to a new beat outside of the paper’s Washington bureau. The paper’s top editor blasted Watkins’ actions as “unacceptable” but said she deserves a second chance. The Times announced on Tuesday that Watkins will relocate to New York after an internal review of her romantic history with potential sources. The paper also announced she will receive a mentor and a “fresh start,” executive editor Dean Baquet told staffers. Last month, a shocking indictment revealed that prior to joining...

    While Fox News continues to dominate in the world of cable, CNN’s audience continues to shrink, reports TV Newser. In all of cable last week (not just cable news), Fox News was number one in primetime, averaging an incredible 2.513 million viewers. Fox News even humiliated second place MSNBC, which averaged just 1.78 million primetime viewers. But way, way, way down in 13th place, below even the Food Network, sits far-left CNN at number 13 and an average of just 914,000 viewers — which is about a third of Fox’s numbers. In total day viewers, Fox News is again number...
