    The media has battled President Trump from the day he announced his presidential bid. They have attacked him the last two years like all other Republicans, but have consistently failed. Trump’s approval ratings have been relatively consistent with a few rough patches; however, he always bounces back stronger. The legacy media cannot destroy what they did not create.Lesley Stahl with CBS News sat down with Trump for a one-on-one interview. She peppered him with questions about several different subjects. Stahl’s inquiries were “gotcha” in nature, but there was one difference. Trump is not a typical Republican president because he pushed back...
  • Anti-Trump and anti-GOP mobs act like thugs, while Trump-hating media spare them criticism

    The anti-Trump media – obsessed with spreading negative and often inaccurate coverage of the president – continue to ignore the dangerous violence, intimidation tactics, threats, bullying and harassment by the professional paid left-wing protest industry. While the mainstream media had no problem wrongly labeling peaceful Tea Party protesters in 2010 as “the mob,” they are closing their eyes to the real unhinged mob behavior emanating now from the radical left. What will it take for the political operatives in the mainstream media to snap out of their Trump Derangement Syndrome and at long last say it’s time for their allies...

    The Justice Department’s inspector general says a senior FBI official accepted two tickets to a sports event from a television news correspondent who regularly covered the bureau. The watchdog office said the official had not paid for the tickets. Initially, under oath, the official claimed to have done so, the watchdog said. The episode was briefly mentioned in a much broader report from last June about the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. …

    During a two part interview with President Trump aired on 60 Minutes on Sunday night, Lesley Stahl asked “what’s the biggest surprise” he's learned as President? Trump cited the duplicity of Washington politicians, but when he relayed how “the other thing I’ve really learned is I never knew how dishonest the media was and I really mean it. I’m not saying that as a soundbite. I never knew how dishonest,” Stahl cut him off: “I’m going to change the subject again.” Referring to an earlier exchange, Trump pointed out: “Well, no, even the way you asked me a question, like,...

    Fox News maintained its position as “King of Cable” last week during the dramatic confirmation hearings and subsequent vote for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Fox crushed rivals CNN and MSNBC in all demographics. Nielsen Media Research reports that, from October 1 through October 7, Fox News more than doubled the viewership of CNN and MSNBC in total viewers for both primetime and total daily viewers. Hannity was the most watched cable show in the country averaging 4.4 million total viewers. Tucker Carlson Tonight and Ingraham Angle both clocked in with 3.7 million viewers. Ultimately, a total of five Fox...

    In its annual survey on "Confidence in Institutions," Gallup found that only 20% of Americans had a "great deal/quite a lot" of confidence in television news and only 23% had such confidence in newspapers. . . . In an update, Gallup emphasized that strong confidence in higher education has declined, from 57% in 2015 to 48% in 2018, a drop of 9 percentage points. "No other institution has shown a larger drop in confidence over the past three years than higher education," reported Gallup.

    Saturday Night Live has lampooned Senate Republicans, imagining them chugging beer in the Senate 'locker room' after successfully confirming Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The new SNL episode on Saturday aired just hours after the Senate voted 50-48 nearly along party lines to confirm Kavanaugh, who was then sworn in to the Supreme Court. The cold opened imagined the party-hearty hi-jinks of ecstatic Republican senators, led by a beer-chugging Lindsey Graham, portrayed by Kate McKinnon. 'How amazing is this? We made a lot of women real worried today, but I'm not getting pregnant so I don't care,' said McKinnon's Graham,...

    Seeking to boost Republican turnout in key Minnesota battlegrounds, President Donald Trump attacked Democrats Thursday night, arguing that their “rage-fueled resistance” to his Supreme Court nominee will motivate GOP voters this fall. Speaking before a cheering crowd at a rally in Rochester, Trump praised Judge Brett Kavanaugh, whose nomination has faltered amid accusations of sexual misconduct. Of Democrats, he said, “Their rage-fueled resistance is starting to backfire at a level nobody has ever seen before.” Added Trump: “Do we love it? We love it. Because people see what’s happening and they don’t like it.” […] In a sustained attack on...

    Jane Mayer is the co-author of the New Yorker’s outrageous hit piece on Judge Kavanaugh. In this context readers may recall Mayer’s book (written with Jill Abramson) defaming Justice Thomas and supporting the Democrats’ late hit on him at the end of his confirmation to the Supreme Court in 1991. The Democrats sought to turn Justice Thomas into roadkill to prevent a black conservative from taking his place on the Court. The true victim of a ludicrous smear, Justice Thomas called out the Democrats’ 1991 playbook as “a high-tech lynching.” Now the Democrats seek to assassinate Judge Kavanaugh. We should...

    The New Yorker hit piece on Brett Kavanaugh published Sunday night accusing Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, without corroboration, of exposing himself to a female Yale classmate at a drunken dorm party in the 1980s was met with skepticism by the New York Times and ABC News. (UPDATE: CBS News, also. At end.) Kavanaugh accuser Deborah Ramirez. The Times reported, but buried, that it had spent a week investing the accusation by Deborah Ramirez but was unable to find an eyewitness and that Ramirez had recently told several of her classmates she wasn’t sure it was Kavanaugh.

Marc Benioff, co-founder of the cloud computing company Salesforce.com, and his wife Lynn Benioff are purchasing the publication, they confirmed to the Journal. The proposed sale to the Benioffs is expected to close within 30 days and will be unrelated to Salesforce.com.

    ESPN personality Jemele Hill announced she would be leaving the company Friday. Hill's was an anchor for "Sportscenter," the network's signature program, before going to work with company website The Undefeated in January. Hill's departure came after she was briefly suspended last year for messages she posted on social media, including one calling President Donald Trump a "white supremacist." At the time, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Hill's comments were a "fireable offense." Trump also criticized her last year, saying she was the reason the network ratings "tanked." She announced her decision on her Twitter, mentioning that...

    The Federalist ^ | SEPTEMBER 14, 2018 | Saritha Prabhu
    Chuck Todd’s recent article in The Atlantic was an insult to the intelligence of those of us who are ordinary voters and avid media consumers. He blames conservative media and their stars for the unprecedented distrust and credibility problems mainstream media outlets face. That’s right: he thinks millions of Americans loathe and distrust the national press solely because Fox News, Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity regularly—and falsely, in his opinion—tell their viewers about the bias in national media. He is being either clueless or dishonest, and it might be a bit of both. Let me explain some of the many...

    Google has defended the way its bosses greeted the election of Donald Trump, after criticism by right-wing media. A video published on Wednesday by the Breitbart website shows senior executives commenting the morning after the 2016 election. During the 60-minute presentation, Google co-founder Sergey Brin said he found the election "deeply offensive". Breitbart said the video showed evidence of Google's inherent bias against Republicans. 'Panic and dismay' Google defended itself by saying the executives had been expressing their "personal views" and it had no political bias. In its story, Breitbart said the video had reached it via an anonymous source...

    Media bias seems to get worse by the week. Even a work week shortened by Labor Day delivered on that depressing trend. Journalists cheered protests at the Supreme Court nomination hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh and swallowed a silly Internet hoax. Then there was the anonymous New York Times op-ed defending a “steady state” rebellion against President Trump. It was a new low for journalists devoted to overturning a democratic election. Call it the pièce de résistance. The New York Times trumped opposition leaders at CNN and The Washington Post. The three battle daily for liberal attention and journalistic kudos...

    Why do the Democrats and the liberal media hate me so much? Because I refuse to stay on their political plantation. For decades, the Democrat-Media Complex has appointed itself the master of truth. They tell black Americans who to love, who to hate and what to believe. In their eyes, we are nothing more than a low-information voting block that will always vote for the Democrat Party. The only difference between the slave masters of old and the liberal media masters of today’s political plantation is that one enslaves the body while the other enslaves the mind. Liberals are the...
