  • Media just can't stop telling falsehoods about Trump's views on race

    The media just can’t stop lying about President Trump’s views on racism and hatred. The media has been awash in praise for the joint statement that former presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush put out on Wednesday concerning the violence in Charlottesville. The statement was viewed as a rebuke of Trump’s statements. The Dallas Morning News headline said, “Former presidents Bush rebuke Trump's neo-Nazi stance.” The New York Times called it “a rare joint rebuke of Mr. Trump.” The New York Times praised George W. Bush for leading the condemnation of former KKK leader David Duke in 1991,...
  • Economist cover shows Trump speaking with KKK hood

    The Economist has made a shocking statement on the president on their most recent cover, showing him speaking through a megaphone that appears to look like a Ku Klux Klan hood. The latest cover of the magazine has no headline mentioning Trump or words describing the president’s recent actions. Trump has taken heat and faced widespread condemnation from Democrats and Republicans for his comments on the rally in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, after he said twice that more than one side was to blame for violence that erupted. White supremacists, neo-Nazis and KKK leaders gathered in Charlottesville last weekend...
  • Harry Truman once compared the press to prostitutes

    New York Post ^ | 5/17/17 | Massarella
    Donald Trump isn’t the only U.S. president who loved to bash the Washington press corps. The original “Give ‘em Hell” Harry S. Truman called journalists covering the White House “prostitutes of the mind” in a letter written on Dec. 29, 1955 to pal Dean Acheson. In the salty letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Post, Truman rails against newspaper writers and columnists, calling them “more dangerous” than street walkers. “Presidents and the members of their Cabinets and their staff members have been slandered and misrepresented since George Washington,” Truman wrote in the hand-written diatribe. “When the press...
  • Wait–Did The Left Force This NYT Reporter To Retract Her Remarks On Antifa In Charlottesville?

    So, did the progressive social media mob force a New York Times reporter to retract her statements about the left wing Antifa crowd that showed up in Charlottesville over the weekend? White nationalists descended into the city to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. The day was marked with scores of people injured in skirmishes between the far right and far left. One person was killed when a 20-year-old Ohio man named James Alex Fields, Jr. plowed into counter protesters. He injured an additional 19 people in the attack. The only thing Sheryl Gay Stolberg noted was...
  • Katy Tur Notes Trump’s Teleprompter Use in Speech: He Could Not ‘Speak From the Heart’

    Mediaite ^ | 8/14/2017 | Ken Meyer
    MSNBC’s Katy Tur reviewed President Trump‘s latest speech on Charlottesville, and she raised questions about the authenticity of the president’s scripted condemnation for the events of the last two days. Tur spoke with David Jolly, Harold Ford, and Marc Morial, the latter of whom compared how long it took for Trump to condemn white supremacists and Ken Frazier. Jolly followed up by saying that even though Trump said everything properly today, his condemnation of white supremacists would’ve meant a lot more if it happened in his immediate response to the chaos, and without a script to read off of. From...
  • The MSM will NEVER Let Trump Win the Response Game

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    Regardless of your opinions on how effective or timely President Trump’s response to the shocking events in Charlottesville, VA, it can’t have escaped your attention that the MSM is now firmly targeted as one in kicking down Trump on his responses. It seems he can’t catch a break on this, and that is likely the point of the concerted operation taking place. Firstly he was criticized for not getting a statement out fast enough to condemn the (we assume) murder of a young woman and the violence surrounding it. Many were quick to jump in and make their statement (and...

    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...

    House Republicans launch a website blasting the media for focusing on “chaos,” rather than their accomplishments made during President Trump’s first 200 days in office. The website called “Did You Know” says the news has not been keeping Americans informed on all the legislation GOP lawmakers have passed in the House.

    PJ Media ^ | Faith Moore
    The biggest, and most telling, example of this is Leach’s realization that one reason many conservative women don’t identify as “feminist” is because of “what they perceive to be the left’s ‘victimhood culture.’” Leach is beside herself. “There wasn't any conversation about or acknowledgement of the ways it’s hard” for women to “chase their goals,” Leach complains. These women were ignoring the “harsh realities of being a woman!” Leach then spends a long paragraph telling us what these “harsh realities” are: wage gaps, cyberbullying, more wage gaps, Donald Trump. How could these women, who say they care about women’s equality,...

Hummmm. Sounds like Censorship to us, which is a Violation of our First Amendment. A Bias Method used to Silence our Conservative Voices. @YouTube, how was it OK to monetize our videos for the past two years and now those same videos are no longer eligible for monetization?” The popular duo has 89,000 subscribers on...

    CNN reporter Jim Acosta pitched another fit in the White House briefing room on Aug. 2, asserting that President Trump's immigration policy was refuted by a poem engraved on a plaque on the Statue of Liberty. Trump aide Stephen Miller fought him tooth and nail, slamming him for a "cosmopolitan bias." There was no doubt that the liberal elites would sympathize with the acidic Acosta. HBO's comedic anchorman John Oliver uncorked how the media really felt, denouncing Miller as "one of the most revolting humans" he has ever seen and a "vitamin D-deficient minion," whatever that means. Everyone is used...
  • Michelle Obama’s Post-White House Style Is Consistently on Point (LOL)

    It’s been nearly 200 days since the Obamas moved out of the White House. In that time, Barack Obama may have become a style star, but Michelle Obama has simply remained one. The former First Lady is as supportive of a wide range of up-and-coming designers as she was in her capacity as FLOTUS. Maybe—maybe—we’re able to detect a slight edge in her new looks. There’s the Cushnie et Ochs dress that she wore to the ESPYs, which is spot-on trend-wise, all black and asymmetrical and falling just below the knee. Plus, she’s managed to set her shoulders free without...

    On Friday, the United Auto Workers failed in yet another attempt to organize an auto plant in the South. This time it was a Nissan plant in Canton, Mississippi. Unlike in the 2014, when workers at a Chattanooga, Tennessee Volkswagen plant narrowly rejected the union, Friday's result was a 62 percent to 38 percent shellacking. Coverage of the UAW's defeat at the Associated Press overnight was reasonably measured, with one exception: a barely mentioned and completely unexplained Fiat Chrysler-UAW corruption scandal in Metro Detroit which influenced the voting. Reporter Jeff Amy's dispatch shortly after midnight Saturday morning (also saved here...

    In the course of the segment Charles Krauthammer addresses the applicable law in a manner that is extremely misleading. This is what he had to say on the legal issues (my transcription): I thought we adjudicated this in Watergate days. We have an odd system but it is a traditional one where if there is an unauthorized leak of classified information — it’s illegal — the person who goes to jail is the leaker and not the receiver [i.e., the reporter]. We do want to have some protection for the First Amendment simply because we believe that the press needs...

    CNN and celebrity gossip site TMZ could potentially be sold off after AT&T merges with Time Warner, a report claims. The $85 billion deal, which was announced in October, will give AT&T control of Time Warner properties including CNN, HBO and TMZ, as well as the film studio Warner Bros and other coveted media assets. Sources told Deadline that AT&T executives are considering getting rid of some of Time Warner's assets, including the cable news network and the celebrity gossip site. 'They don't want any controversy,' one source said of AT&T. AT&T reportedly expects the deal to be approved and...

    WASHINGTON, DC — As leaks of classified and otherwise sensitive information pour from all corners of the federal government, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Friday that he may crack down on the members of the media who report these stories — despite widespread acceptance of the idea that the First Amendment offers broad protections to the press on this front. “We respect the important role that the press plays," Sessions said at a morning press conference. "And we'll give them respect, but it is not unlimited." He did not say specifically what changes he was pursuing, though the department will...

    Republicans are questioning their ability to govern following seven months of constant turmoil capped by the dramatic failure in the Senate to advance ObamaCare repeal. ...

Privately, staff and members are more forthcoming. ... "We're horrified by the drama coming out of the White House," said a Republican senator who requested anonymity to comment frankly on the administration.
