  • Nolte: Disgraced Media Already Hit with Massive Layoffs in 2018

    When President Trump’s presidency is over, one of the biggest pieces of fake news we will look back on is when we were told by the media that Trump was good for the media business. The truth is that business for the media is horrible. The Denver Post announced that between April 9 and July 1, 30 jobs will be cut from its newsroom--a massive 30 percent cut of its current staff of 100 journalists. Just 10 years ago the Denver Post employed 600 journalists--close to a 90 percent reduction in only a decade. Layoffs hit the Chicago Tribune. Fourteen...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | March 15, 2018 | Diana Stancy Correll
    ProPublica has issued a correction for mistakenly saying in an article that Gina Haspel, President Trump’s nominee to head the CIA, was involved with the treatment a terror suspect and falsely stated she mocked the suspect. Although Haspel, who has been with the CIA since 1985, was in charge of a covert CIA prison in Thailand where detainees were subject to waterboarding and other interrogation methods in 2002, the ProPublica story falsely stated she was directly involved with the torture of a prisoner by the name of Abu Zubaydah. Zubaydah was waterboarded at the CIA prison on 83 occasions. “It...

    Sean Hannity fired back at his Fox News colleague Shepard Smith on Twitter Friday after the breaking news anchor claimed Fox News’s opinion programming doesn’t “really have rules.” “While Shep is a friend with political views I do not share, and great at breaking news, he is clueless about what we do every day,” Mr. Hannity, a pro-Trump conservative and prime-time Fox News host, tweeted Friday. “Hannity breaks news daily-Warrant on a Trump assoc, the unmasking scandal, leaking intel, Fisa abuse, HRC lawbreaking, dossier and more REAL NEWS! 9p,” he wrote.

    Among all enemies, foreign and domestic, of the United States, there is none greater, nor more imminently threatening, than the Swamp creatures in Washington D.C., that aim to destroy an American President As the media battles pitting dueling, partisan strategists, talking over each other as they debate – if belching non sequitur talking-points is debating – the significance of this White House firing or hiring, or evidence of collusion or not, touting this “bombshell” announcement or that debunking of it, all this white noise ringing in our ears has, to many, become sound fury signifying nothing. And we, many, are...

    Anderson Cooper is a single man. The CNN anchor and his boyfriend, Benjamin Maisani, have called it quits after nine years together. “Benjamin and I separated as boyfriends some time ago,” Cooper, 50, said in a statement to Us on Thursday, March 15. “We are still family to each other, and love each other very much. We remain the best of friends, and will continue to share much of our lives together.” The best of friends, indeed. The journalist and the 45-year-old nightclub owner, who were first linked in 2009, attended a benefit for the Windward School in New York...

    The media, the Democrats, and a few NeverTrumps are in a tizzy these past few days because President Trump dared to call NBC's Chuck Todd "a sleeping son of a b‑‑‑‑" and The New York Times' Maggie Haberman a "Hillary flunky." Said NeverTrump Erick Erickson, "The fact is @MaggieNYTand @chucktoddhave better character, better morals, and are more honest than the President who is attacking them." "@MaggieNYTand @chucktodd are not only great journalists, they are good people. This crass name-calling is beneath the office of the presidency," tweeted Jake Tapper. Tweets like these ran in the thousands. A common theme was...
  • Meet the Press Panel Freaks: Incompetent Trump Handing NoKo a Victory

    When it was first announced last Thursday that President Trump was to personally meet with North Korea Dictator Kim Jong-un for negotiations, the media’s response varied from optimistic to seething anger. But with some time, it appears as though their consensus is now to denounce the idea as was blatantly obvious on Sunday’s Meet the Press. The entire panel up in arms and fretting that Trump was either going to hand North Korea a victory or blow a gasket at the meeting and start a war. Moderator Chuck Todd, still bitter because Trump called him a “sleeping son of a...

    During a speech at a campaign rally for a congressional race in Pennsylvania on Saturday, President Trump unleashed on the liberal media and NBC Political Director Chuck Todd whom he called a “sleeping son of a b*tch.” And as would be expected, CNN media reporter Brian Stelter and his Reliable Sources panel responded with their own righteously indignant hot takes. Chief among them was Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik who argued that if you laughed at Trump’s jokes you were damaging society.Stelter set up the tone of the show to once again be all about bemoaning how Trump treated...

    In today’s 24-hours news cycle, many people wish they could isolate themselves from reality for a variety of reasons. For some, it would be absolutely heaven to block all news. It seems like a far-fetched idea, but one liberal in Ohio has actually done it since the day after the presidential election 2016 in an experiment known as "The Blockade." The New York Times published the story today. “Right after the election, Erik Hagerman decided he’d take a break from reading about the hoopla of politics.Donald Trump’s victory shook him. Badly. And so Mr. Hagerman developed his own eccentric experiment,...

    A pair of left-leaning reporters complained in an op-ed and on social media that gun-rights activists are wrong to demand that they learn gun terminology before opining on gun policy. Writing for the Washington Post this week, journalist Adam Weinstein complained that "The NRA and its allies use jargon to bully gun-control supporters." "While debating the merits of various gun-control proposals, Second Amendment enthusiasts often diminish, or outright dismiss their views if they use imprecise firearms terminology," Weinstein wrote. "Perhaps someone tweets about ‘assault-style' weapons, only to be told that there's no such thing," he continued. "Maybe they're reprimanded that...

    RUSH: Do you remember the kerfuffle, do you remember the controversy that ensued in January of 2009 when I told the Wall Street Journal I didn’t need 400 words to explain my hopes and dreams for the Obama administration, I only needed four, and those words “I hope he fails.” Do you remember the ensuing controversy? And what was it based on? They said that I, your beloved host, El Rushbo, a household name in all four corners of the world, was advocating for the failure of America. By not hoping the president succeed, I was hoping America would fail....

    Going to press events is a normal part of my job. What happened Monday — as I walked to a news conference at which Democratic gubernatorial candidate Steve Sisolak announced his education plan — isn’t. Sisolak held the event on the third floor of a building owned by Switch. As I got off the elevator, there were two security guards there and a Sisolak campaign staffer. The staffer asked me to sign in and then walked away in a panic when he realized who I was — a conservative columnist. Sisolak’s communications director, Barb Solish, came out and told me,...

    A professor from Harvard, accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen students, will retire at the end of the semester. Jorge Dominguez, 72, moved the retirement up by three days after he was placed on administrative leave pending an investigation of more than 30 years of behavior. The chairwoman of Harvard's government department shared with the Boston Globe that Dominguez's retirement 'does not change the active review of the facts and circumstances that have recently come to light.' Dominguez has been accused of inappropriate behavior by 18 undergrad and graduate students from 1976 until 2015. On Wednesday, he...

    ...It is a weird thing to watch the media uncritically receive and regurgitate dozens of leaks — all of them out of context, some of them downright false — from Rep. Adam Schiff and his team and then write up that the other side is leaking. This is particularly bizarre given the general lack of leaks coming from House Permanent Select Committee Republicans. At the very least it’s worth noting that there were no leaks from Intelligence Committee Republicans about their 4-page memo alleging FISA abuses, even as the agencies and Democrats on the committee put out anticipatory leaks to...

It is getting to the point for me of defying description of what the Drive-By Media is actually doing and perpetrating. I mean, I know what they’re doing and everybody else knows what they’re doing. But it’s gone beyond the realm of what anybody would consider polite sanity. CNN yesterday actually sent a reporter to Bangkok to interview that honey pot that’s in jail who claims to have 16 hours of recorded phone conversations implicating...

    President Trump praised China’s president for his recent consolidation of indefinite power and joked that he might like to serve as president for life too, according to a recording of a closed-door fundraiser which was obtained by CNN..... Those strongman moves, culminating in a grab for indefinite rule, are exactly what Trump — whose wannabe authoritarianism is well established at this point — admitted he admires. And Trump doesn’t just look up to Xi.
