    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders isn't a big fan of the media. Which is, of course, her right. The relationship between any White House and any press corps tasked with covering that White House is almost always fraught and fractious. But, on Monday, Sanders made an accusation that went way, way beyond the pale of the usual give and take between White House and press corps. Here's what she said: "There's a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people. Something that happens regularly. You can't say -- I'm not done. You can't say...

    Well, journalists had another stellar week of buying petards from Acme, setting the explosives off, and hoisting themselves high above the ground. The first ten days of December have seen: ABC News's Brian Ross lie about General Flynn's plea bargain. Reuters and Bloomberg News report on an imaginary subpoena of Trump's records at a German bank. CNN lie about Donald Trump Junior being tipped off about a WikiLeaks. David Weigel of the Washington Post lie about the size of the crowd at a Trump rally. Liars all of them. [Snip] Credibility is all the press has. The power of the...
  • Cheers, Prince Harry! But the last time a British royal married an American, it didn't go well.

    It has been formally announced this 27th day of November in the year 2017 that a British royal - Prince Henry of Wales (known to drinking buddies as Prince Harry) - is marrying an American divorcée. The last time this happened - in 1936 when King Edward VIII decided to wed American socialite Wallis Simpson — it triggered a crisis inside Windsor Castle. For one thing, Simpson was about to divorce for the second time. Also, she was from Baltimore.

    President Donald Trump praised Fox News while criticizing CNN in a tweet that brought forth a rebuke from CNN and a claim by a New York Times reporter that Trump has 'declared Fox News state TV.' Trump wrote Saturday evening, ".@FoxNews is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!"
  • How Murderer Charles Manson and Donald Trump Used Language to Gain Followers (For real?)

    The death of cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson resurfaces tales from his twisted family’s killing spree after nearly four decades. Manson orchestrated the brutal deaths of actress Sharon Tate and six other innocent people in the 1960s according to historical reports, which leave many wondering how he convinced followers, made up of a former Sunday school teacher, a church choir singer and a one-time homecoming princess, into committing such brutal acts. According to psychoanalyst Mark Smaller, past president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, part of Manson’s power lay in the type of language he used. Notably, Manson was...

    Dan Rather, who famously lost his job after he was caught spreading a made-up story about former President George W. Bush, is making the rounds again to discuss accuracy in media and the proper role of the press in our republic. Because this is real life and the producers of NBC's "Today" show lack any sense of self-awareness. "[A] recent poll that said nearly half of people think the media make up stories!" co-host Savannah Guthrie said as she kicked off the morning segment. Referring to a Politico survey released in October, she then turned to Rather and said,...

    How sick do you have to be to downplay a terror attack in the name of climate science? Eight people are dead after a terrorist plowed a truck into pedestrians on a lower Manhattan bike path. The suspect, identified by law enforcement officials as 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov, reportedly screamed “Allahu akbar” as he exited the vehicle waving guns after crashing into a school bus. He was shot by a uniformed police officer and is now in custody. New York Police Commissioner James O'Neill said a paintball gun and pellet gun were recovered at the scene. Saipov is reportedly an Uzbek...

    WEST NEWTON, PA -- There used to be 324 newspapers in the state of Pennsylvania. Today, there are about 60, give or take a few. The Pennsylvania Gazette is the first one on record not just in the colony of Pennsylvania but in all of the Crown's colonies. Benjamin Franklin bought the paper with a partner in 1729, and he contributed to it, as well, mostly under aliases. Among the many firsts, the plucky paper would print the first political cartoon in America, "Join, or Die," authored by Franklin. It also printed the then-treasonous texts of the Declaration of Independence,...

    Let’s be honest, ‘best’ of anything lists are never more than popularity contests. So who was surprised that Vanity Fair’s ‘Best Dressed’ list included former FLOTUS Michelle but shunned current FLOTUS Melania. President Trump – and by extension his wife – remain unpopular with extreme prejudice in the Deep State Media.  But perhaps Business Insider, in another snarky article comparing the cost of Melania’s outfits to those of Michelle’s, reveals a partial explanation of their unpopularity: not only are the Trumps wealthy, they don’t have the good sense to be embarrassed by it. Melania and her husband have long embodied...

    The mounting intensity of Donald Trump’s war on the press confounds news veterans like me who remember Trump’s history as a media whore. During my 20 years as editor-in-chief of Variety, I knew Trump as an avid self-publicist who frantically sought loftier standing on Hollywood’s power pyramid. But here’s the rub: My perspective on Trump is shaped by my earlier relationship with another icon who also yearned to leverage showbiz fame into political power. Assigned to cover Ronald Reagan’s first gubernatorial campaign for The New York Times, I had an inside seat to observe how a vastly different style of...

    Politics has become the pimple on America’s forehead: It’s impossible to ignore because it keeps telling us it’s there. Technology makes it conspicuous. The same social media network that notifies you what your friend’s college roommate had for lunch loses all control when the former director of national intelligence opens his mouth. Back in the day, when computers were operated by punch cards and existed for no other reason than to calculate payroll and, occasionally, the angle of reentry for a moonshot, a guy like James Clapper would have left Washington and taken some position in a university or something,...

    Sigh. If only President Trump denounced neo-Nazis as passionately and sincerely as he castigates journalists. What could be an easier task than distancing oneself from Nazis or violent white supremacists? Yet Trump manages to make it infinitely complicated — and then get distracted by self-pity and excoriate reporters for committing journalism. The key strain of his sulfurous speech in Phoenix on Tuesday was an extended attack on “dishonest” reporters (including at “the failing New York Times”). Look, we in journalism deserve to have our feet held to the fire. We make mistakes all the time, and too often we are...

    Viewers beware: Scarborough and Tapper aren’t just forcing the president into their new narrative, they’re putting all those who voted for Trump into the same one The Russia collusion conspiracy against President Donald Trump wasn’t working. So the progressive left/mainstream media cabal began writing the president they live to hate into into another narrative, one that would be so stunning, it would make us forget that they dropped the Russian ruse. It exploded on Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia and life would never be the same. The POTUS is now—officially—courtesy of their spanking new narrative the president of...

    On Saturday afternoon, shortly before her camera captured a car plowing through left-wing activists in Charlottesville, killing one and injuring more than a dozen others, Faith Goldy warned that the left was spinning out of control. “Hundreds and hundreds of antifa, weird BLM, idiots dressed like clowns,” said Goldy, a reporter for the Canadian alt-right news site The Rebel. “This is okay, as long as you’re not the alt-right. The alt-right wasn’t allowed to demonstrate any show of force.” As if on cue, activists began chanting “black lives matter” in the background of Goldy’s shot. “Chant BLM, and all of...

    Bloomberg released a poll Monday in which they gauged Americans’ mood six months into the new presidency. While Trump didn’t fare too well, Americans are quite optimistic about the economy in general and their personal financial health. As part of the study, Bloomberg asked respondents what they think is the top issue facing the country. Here are the results: Not surprisingly, health care tops the list of concerns, followed by jobs and security issues. These findings are pretty typical, though the collapse of Obamacare and the GOP bills to fix it have caused health care to surge higher than usual....

    The meme war has begun. CNN has brought this upon themselves. Blackmailing a Reddit user for putting some inappropriate things on the internet is not a media company’s job. They are butthurt over the Trump takedown video. And they are reaping what they sow. They talk about the president inciting violence by retweeting a meme with Trump taking down CNN in a Wrestlemania video when they are the ones who gave a platform to someone who literally tried to attack Trump at a speech during last year’s presidential campaign. This same network hired Bob Beckel after he called for the...

    President Trump is not fiendishly hated by the outside world, but only fiendishly hated by the Democrats and Mainstream media in his own country “F*** Donald Trump!” is where the Democrat Party has allowed itself to be buried. ‘“F*** Donald Trump!” Chant Leader’, outgoing California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton was not nearly so loud or vehement when he settled a $10 million sexual harassment lawsuit filed by Kathleen Driscoll, then the executive director of his charitable foundation for homeless children in 2008. Longer-lived and more haunting than any curse the Democrats could come up with, are the words left...

    Per an analysis of a dozen of the most recent so called ‘leaks’ being reported and repeated by the liberal mainstream media (MSM) involving President Trump, the probability that these ‘leaks’ are just plain lies is very high. An analysis of the most recent leaks clearly shows that the leaks are being reported by very biased liberal MSM outlets that were adamantly opposed to the election of President Trump. These ‘leaks’ in all cases are not supported with any names of so-called sources. Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly made some statements in the ‘leaks’ but to this date he...

    Again with the same question? If you want to know why people hold the mainstream media in such low regard, here you go: You’ve got an opportunity to interview the president of the United States, in the Oval Office. You could ask him about health care, energy policy, North Korea, Iran, taxes, spending . . . anything you want. So what does John Dickerson decide to ask him about? See for yourself:

    The worst kind of bias is the bias of omission. And that was never more on display than after reports surfaced earlier this week alleging former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice's had unmasked Trump transition team members. So why is this a big story that deserves attention? Simply put, one of the highest-ranking members of the previous administration unmasked names of members of the incoming administration via classified intelligence reports, prompting many questions that warrant dogged journalism: Who leaked the information to newspapers like The Washington Post? Who, if anyone, ordered Rice to unmask the names of private U.S....
