  • Why is mainstream media trying to cover up the Susan Rice story?

    The Hill ^ | 5 Apr, 2017 | JOE CONCHA
    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....
  • Chelsea says she won't run for President in 2020

    Not in 2020, not ever. Make no mistake. The old, liberal, mainstream media views the loss of Hillary Clinton as a personal failure. They did their best to prop up their hero - worst presidential candidate in modern history - and their best wasn’t good enough. Not only did Hillary lose, she lost to a man they consider to be a boorish joke. Their normally stratospheric levels of liberal guilt have rocketed into the cosmos, and they’re searching desperately for a way to reassure their masters that they really are good little lapdogs. Apparently, they’ve decided that Chelsea Clinton is...
  • NY Times: Preet Bharara Shunned Politics. His End Was Tinged by Them. (big time fake news alert)

    NY Times ^ | March 12, 2017 | Benjamin Weiser, Ben Protess, Matthew Goldstein and William K. Rashbaum
    Ten days into his tenure as United States attorney in Manhattan, Preet Bharara saw his political and prosecutorial worlds collide. He convened a meeting to discuss a sensitive investigation of a Democratic donor with ties to Senator Chuck Schumer of New York. Mr. Bharara had been Mr. Schumer's chief counsel, and Mr. Schumer had recommended Mr. Bharara for the prosecutorial post. At the meeting, Mr. Bharara asked his prosecutors if there was enough evidence to make a case against the donor, Hassan Nemazee. One of the prosecutors, Daniel W. Levy, who is now in private practice, would recall years later...

  • The Basic Formula For Every Shocking Russia/Trump Revelation

    The Young Turks ^ | 3/2/2017 | Michael Tracey
    The basic formula for every breaking Trump/Russia story is essentially as follows: 1. The New York Times or Washington Post releases an article that at first blush appears extremely damning. 2. Anti-Trump pundits and Democrats react reflexively to the news, express shrieking outrage, and proclaim that this finally proves untoward collusion between Trump and Russia — a smoking gun, at last. 3. Aggrieved former Clinton apparatchiks *connect the dots* in a manner eerily reminiscent of right-wing Glenn Beck-esque prognostication circa 2009. 4. Self-proclaimed legal experts rashly opine as to whether the new revelation entails some kind of criminally actionable offense. (Recall the...

    The New York Times sought to market itself as the truthful alternative to President Donald Trump Sunday night in an advertisement shown during the Academy Awards.

    For free entertainment in the Trump era, the meltdowns and hissy-fits of the MainStream Media are hard to beat. In such a discussion, perhaps it’s important to define our terms, so here goes: The MainStream Media, or MSM, consists of the major TV networks with news divisions – NBC, ABC, and CBS… the major east coast newspapers – primarily the New York Times, the Washington Post, maybe the Chicago Tribune and USA Today… the straight news syndication agencies – primarily AP and Reuters… and cable news – primarily CNN and MSNBC. These newsrooms, which have acted largely as a block...

    This is how the muzzling starts: not with a boot on your neck, but with the fear of one that runs so deep that you muzzle yourself. Maybe it’s the story you decide against doing because it’s liable to provoke a press-bullying president to put the power of his office behind his attempt to destroy your reputation by falsely calling your journalism “fake.”

    The Hollywood Reporter ^ | 2/16/2017 | Eriq Gardner
    A defamation suit is allowed to survive in a defeat not only for the cable news network, but also for the MPAA. Donald Trump probably doesn't know about it, but the guy who once said he wanted to open up libel laws will probably be quite pleased by a new ruling from a Georgia federal judge. In fact, the stakes in this case are so high we wouldn't be surprised if it eventually lands before the U.S. Supreme Court and potentially makes it easier to sue entertainment and media outlets. There's a reason why the Motion Picture Association of America...

    I apologize to Donald Trump. As Sean Spicer so wisely said at his first news conference on Monday (It was the first. The one that happened on Saturday did not happen at all, and I recognize that!), it is unfair to be so mean and negative all the time. Here is the fair and unbiased story about the inauguration written in compliance with the Trump style guidelines that we should have been obeying all along. Nothing that has ever happened or will ever happen was as great as Donald Trump’s inauguration.

    Washington Examiner ^ | January 23, 2017 | Pete Kasperowicz
    President Trump's White House sent a clear message to major media outlets on Monday: You don't matter as much anymore. The White House for years has deferred to newswires and major TV networks, all of whom are represented in the first row of the White House briefing room, for the first several questions at the daily briefing. But on Monday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer called on very different group of reporters. He first called on the New York Post. Then, the Christian Broadcasting Network. That was followed by Univision and Fox Business. Spicer then took a question from...

Here’s the gist of it:YANTBOM!!As with most stompy foot tantrums this one goes on and on: All of this, of course, is your choice and, in a way, your right. While the Constitution protects the freedom of the press, it doesn’t dictate how the president must honor that; regular press conferences aren’t enshrined in the document.And we have no problem with that if we like our shepherd.But while you have every...

    DEAR MR. PRESIDENT ELECT: In these final days before your inauguration, we thought it might be helpful to clarify how we see the relationship between your administration and the American press corps. It will come as no surprise to you that we see the relationship as strained. Reports over the last few days that your press secretary is considering pulling news media offices out of the White House are the latest in a pattern of behavior that has persisted throughout the campaign: You’ve banned news organizations from covering you. You’ve taken to Twitter to taunt and threaten individual reporters and...

    Because they invented it in order to discredit everyone but them. I’m taking the unusual step here of dealing with a two-week old piece of work, but I’m doing it because the topic is somewhat evergreen and the issues it presents remain very much at the forefront of our national discourse. You will recall that it only took a few days after the election of Donald Trump for the mainstream media to suddenly start carping about “fake news.” The implication was that Trump won in part because gullible people posted false news stories from unreputable web sites that made all...

    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...

    Award winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson has come out and said that the recent brouhaha over “fake news” is nothing more than a “propaganda campaign” in order to censor free speech and freedom of the press by the Obama administration and the likes of Hillary Clinton. Appearing on Wednesday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” Attkisson said, “Before about September 13, if you searched the news you won’t find many or any mentions of fake news. But as soon as there was, in my view, a propaganda campaign to put this on the plate of the American public, the news...

As FoxNews notes however, while President-elect Donald Trump was named Time magazine's Person of the Year on Wednesday, the honor basically ended there. While describing Trump as the real change-maker of 2016, the magazine also ragged on the Republican president-elect as a "huckster" and "demagogue" while reserving its most glowing praise for runner-up Hillary Clinton -- whom the edition breathlessly described as "an American Moses." In describing Trump, Time's article almost exclusively used backhanded compliments. For instance,...
