    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was wrongly and inaccurately blamed when Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) was shot several years ago, is standing up for Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont saying he is personally not responsible for the actions of his apparent supporter. Palin, in an exclusive statement to Breitbart News, called for the media industry to be more careful than they were back when Giffords was shot—specifically asking for “media integrity” when it comes to learning the motives of the shooter of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise at the GOP congressional baseball practice on Wednesday morning. “Prayers for healing...

    In reaction to the May ratings report showing MSNBC as number one in weeknight prime-time viewership in the prized 25-to-54 age demographic, CNN sent out a spokeswoman to separate itself from the competition. CNN should be viewed as "the one nonpartisan cable news network," presumably unlike MSNBC, and certainly unlike Fox News. This statement was issued after CNN personality Kathy Griffin did a stunt holding up a replica of President Trump's bloody severed head. It's doubly shameless that it also came after CNN host Reza Aslan raged at the president on Twitter, calling him "this piece of s---." CNN responded...
  • Why the MSM Is Ignoring Trump's Sex Trafficking Busts

    Since President Donald Trump has been sworn in on Jan. 20, authorities have arrested an unprecedented number of sexual predators involved in child sex trafficking rings in the United States. This should be one of the biggest stories in the national news. Instead, the mainstream media has barely, if at all, covered any of these mass pedophile arrests. This begs the question – why?As a strong advocate for sex crime victims, I’ve been closely following the pedophile arrests since Trump took office. There have been a staggering 1,500-plus arrests in one short month; compare that to less than 400 sex...

    Irrespective of any policy controversies in his nascent administration, one thing is clear: President Trump’s fearless, effective handling of the liberal media redounds to his benefit in a manner never seen before in Republican politics. He’s the first Republican president who responds immediately to biased reporting and doesn’t let a single charge go by unrefuted. He is totally unafraid of being combative and confrontational. He has empowered and emboldened his advisors and spokespeople, like Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway and Reince Priebus -- to act likewise, with effective results. For the first time, conservatives are not shouting at the TV out...

    The mainstream media have stepped up their complaints about President Trump amid pious howls mostly about the First Amendment. The issue, however, has nothing to do with that. It's that these organizations are openly asserting a right to define, control and impose their world-view on us. That's the real problem. To start, they are defining what is and isn't offensive in America today, claiming they can make those designations even while admitting they don't have all the facts, and that you, the reader, deserve to lose your job if you fall outside of the rigid box they construct. There are...

    Early last year, I interviewed for a senior editor's position with the Federal Aviation Administration. The supervisor of the group had done some research on my writings and asked if I would be able to maintain the government's narrative. The office did press releases for government officials and the public on the next-generation air traffic control system, as the FAA transitioned from a radar-based ATC to a global positioning system-based program. As senior editor, I would ensure our office's prime directive that the new GPS-based ATC program was vitally necessary to combat global warming. I write conservative novels and I...

    In addition to the Trump transition team and NBC Reporting, Fox News is now also reporting the original claims by CNN were entirely manufactured, “fake news” by four CNN agenda driven reporters: Jake Tapper, Jim Sciutto, Evan Perez and Carl Bernstein Nothing reported as fact by the CNN constructionists actually took place. Against, the back drop of CNN’s destroyed credibility, pundit Anderson Cooper attempts to obfuscate and push back against the collapse during a contentious interview with Kellyanne Conway: Despite Anderson Cooper’s professional pearl-clutching, even the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper issued a statement refuting the CNN construct: A...

    Jenna Bush Hager made an innocent mistake on the Golden Globes red carpet Sunday night. In an interview with musician Pharrell Williams about the music he helped produce for the film "Hidden Figures," the NBC anchor accidentally combined the movie title with that of "Fences." "You're nominated for 'Hidden Fences,'" she said to Williams, who looked a little surprised but still answered her questions. Pharrell probably forgot about it by the time he sat down at his table. The media, however, with the help of some cyber bullies, won't let Bush Hager live it down. On Twitter, some suggested she didn't care about movies...

    The Washington Post has retracted its story about Russian hackers penetrating the nation’s electricity grid with a virus found in a Burlington, Vt., electric company laptop. “Authorities say there is no indication of that so far [that Russians had penetrated the US electric grid],” according to an editor’s note attached to a corrected version of the story on the paper’s Web site. “The computer at Burlington Electric that was hacked was not attached to the grid,” the editor’s note read. News of the supposed hack had set off a firestorm of recriminations, with Vermont leaders calling Russian President Vladimir Putin...

    This festive season – made all the more festive by our Republican victory – marks the one-year anniversary of CNN’s Don Lemon sourly cutting my mic on air because I refused to stop pointing out Hillary’s all-encompassing evil. Sure, when discussing her myriad misdeeds and cover-ups and how they dwarfed the unproven accusations against Donald Trump, my description of her hubby’s intern depredations was a bit colorful. But I didn’t get cut off for being colorful. I got cut off because I refused to abide by CNN’s official narrative. And now President Trump will have to make a decision about...

    Mainstream media is on a jihad against “fake news,” stories made up or conspiracy theories formulated by people either to push an agenda or simply mess with people. But not all “fake news” is created equally. The media has a point: Fake news is a problem, as evidenced by the guy who shot up a DC pizza place because he wanted to “investigate” whether top Democrats were running a child sex ring out of the basement. The theory came from rumors online strung together out of the emails hacked from Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta and involved code words...

    Donald Trump is meeting with his harshest critics Monday and the people who arguably got him elected ... the media. Sources in Trump's camp tell us ... he's meeting with all the network heads Monday at 1 PM ET, and Trump will not hold back. We're told he wants to talk to them about how they got it so wrong during the campaign. TV execs will show up today, and Tuesday he'll do the same with the NY Times execs and others. Trump's end game for the meeting is unclear, but we're told crow will be served.

    Can someone please explain to me why Fox News always seems to report/reference other liberal networks and papers’ polls? It’s always an ABC or CBS poll, or it’s a NYT or WAPO poll. Aren’t they a big enough outfit to conduct their OWN polls and report them? It comes across as they’re a surrogate for the other networks. Very strange (at least to me).

    “Invariably, they’ll say, this time we got him. This time we found that there’s another tweet come out or something,” Pence told the crowd. “This time we got another thing, another issue that’s come forward.” He then let it be known that he does not see the issue slowing Trump’s momentum. “Then they turn on the next television the next morning, and Donald Trump is still standing stronger than ever before and fighting for the American people,” Pence continued. “And he is going to fight all the way to the White House.”

    Question: If a reporter isn’t committed to ferreting out the truth, wherever that truth leads; if “adversarial” applies to only to one side and not the other (in fact, the other side, in varying degrees, is being aided and abetted), is the reporter practicing journalism? Obvious answer: No. The reporter isn’t reporting, and journalism is merely a ruse. What’s being undertaken is propaganda. No exaggeration. Propaganda, it is, and mainstream media practitioners are “propagandists.” It’s high time to brand both as such and make it stick. So you’re thinking this is much adieu about nothing. Generally, the public has been...

    The first opportunity for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to get in front of voters on television during the same prime time program has come and gone. Any rational observer will admit that Trump did a much better job than Hillary in that forum. Sure, Trump wasn’t perfect, but Hillary was a disaster. You could tell that NBC was not happy with how Hillary did because during the forum they did everything they could to push back against Trump. Including sending out these ridiculous tweets while he spoke. Here's why Russians like Donald Trump https://t.co/9S8cM0G2U0 pic.twitter.com/p9JTnIzE9L — NBC News (@NBCNews)...

    Because everyone knows that Trump’s followers are barely civilized, some of them in more distant regions man-ape hybrids. And everyone knows that “Second Amendment people” are not united behind part of the Bill of Rights; they are using that as disguise of their true nature as bloodthirsty assassins. The media are once again making themselves appear ridiculous, twisting Trump’s words and exposing their own disdain for Trump’s followers. They are following a general script. Samantha Strayer of The Federalist identifies the pattern: The media frenzy surrounding this election, the 24/7 news-cycle, and Trump’s gumption ensure we’re constantly talking about him,...

    Donald Trump, in a sharp shift in strategy, is now refusing to appear on many television outlets, and top advisers who want to limit his exposure are no longer notifying him of every interview request. According to sources familiar with the campaign, one faction is worried that the constant rounds of interviews entail too much risk of the candidate making mistakes or fanning minor controversies, even though his mastery at driving the media agenda helped power his Republican primary victory. A series of clashes over these and other tactical questions has caused Trump himself to openly question who is running...

    The internet was abuzz following a story by David Samuels on the jerk who admitted he manipulated the truth to get the president’s absurd deal with Iran accepted (accepted, that is, by the Democrats in Congress who blocked a Republican resolution to reject it). In case you missed it I’ll provide a quick summary of the salient parts, but that shouldn’t be the end of the story: the press having allowed itself to be flimflammed into being mere White House megaphones needs to redeem itself, should it care to win back even the tiniest shred of credibility. It probably won’t,...
