    Washington Examiner ^ | 24 Jun 2016
    Drone journalism is coming to a newspaper and TV station near you within 60 days. New Federal Aviation Administration rules on the flying devices opens the door to newsrooms using drones to cover events, peer into buildings and capture images like never before, according to the founder of the Drone Journalism Lab at the University of Nebraska. "In 60 days, drone journalism will be legally possible in any newsroom in the United States. That's not to say it will be easy, but it will be legally possible in ways that it has never been before," wrote Matt Waite.

    Newly released emails on the Benghazi terror attack suggest a senior White House aide played a central role in preparing former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice for her controversial Sunday show appearances -- where she wrongly blamed protests over an Internet video. More than 100 pages of documents were released to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Among them was a Sept. 14, 2012, email from Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. The Rhodes email, with the subject line: "RE: PREP Call with...

    After weeks of indecision, ABC announced on May 12 that it would renew the Catholic-bashing sitcom "The Real O'Neals," which is loosely based on the childhood of zealously gay sex columnist Dan Savage. But then, Noah Galvin, the 22-year-old gay actor who plays the gay son, Kenny, gave an interview to New York Magazine's Vulture blog that was so rude that The Hollywood Reporter said ABC is considering its options, like reducing the number of episodes ordered for season 2. An executive producer who spent four years getting the series on the air was "begging the network not to take...

    Those questions apparently did not occur to Cristina Alesci and Laurie Frankel. Also, in addition to the $145 million being funneled to the Clinton Foundation before the CFIUS approval, why was a Kremlin-backed bank bankrolling a $500,000 speech in Moscow for Bill Clinton while his wife led the Russian reset? As even the progressive New Yorker magazine put it, “But there is a bigger question: Why was Bill Clinton taking any money from a bank linked to the Kremlin while his wife was Secretary of State?” Shockingly, CNN Money fact-checkers Alesci and Frankel make no mention of the Kremlin-backed $500,000...

    Because they know nothing about how successful people get things done. First of all, when I say the media think something is a scandal - even though no one is using the word “scandal” - here’s why I say it. You will see headlines and stories about things that seem quite unremarkable. Candidate contracts with vendor for services. Person uses certain word. Public official makes comment about this or that. The reporting may appear very matter-of-fact, but what you have to look at is the news judgment that led the media to mention it at all. For instance, we told...

Whould the media focus on the gun he used, or would they focus on something else?

    In the year 64 AD, much of Rome was destroyed by a massive fire. An outraged populace blamed the Emperor Nero, who had wanted to rebuild the city his way. The historian Tacitus tells us what happened next: “Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called ‘Christians’ by the populace. “Accordingly … an immense multitude was convicted, not so much of the crime of firing the city, as of hatred against mankind. Mockery of every sort was added to their deaths.” The Christians were especially hated for not bowing to...

    In the wake of the Orlando massacre, Chicago Sun Times reporter Neil Steinberg set out to buy an “assault rifle,” presumably to prove how easy it is. But the process didn't exactly go as planned. In his column titled "Would-be Terrorists Can Buy Guns, But a Reporter? No," he points out how a journalist in Philadelphia was able to buy an "assault rifle” in less than 10 minutes. He also noted the percentage of gun transactions in America that don’t go through a background check, and so on. But not at the gun shop he visited. After filling out the...

    No matter what they try to tell you Political media are always obsessed with the so-called inside baseball of what goes on behind the scenes in campaigns. And while they often have no idea what’s really going on, or why, that won’t stop them from engaging in baseless speculation and trying to convince you they know things they really don’t. So they’re all trying to tell us today that Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was “fired,” and that there is turmoil within the Trump campaign, and that Lewandowski must have lost a “power struggle” with Paul Manafort.

    How many of you Donald Trump supporters are starting to worry about what you hear in the media? Their job is to turn your candidate into in an unelectable commodity. They are not supportive of Trump nor do they want him in the White House. If there's one thing that is constant truth it is that Trump is not a politician so the way he campaigns is not like what you're used to seeing, so I wouldn't worry that much about what the media runs on TV. This morning on NBC's Today, it seemed that the hosts work concern how...

    The American Left is just plain evil. Not only do they not seek truth, they suppress it. Everything the Left does, including shamefully exploiting the slaughter of Americans in a nightclub, is to further their deception and their power to force their unpopular agenda down our throats. Leftists are the minority. However, they own the federal government, social media, public education, Hollywood, and the Democratic party. They incite misdirected anger, hate and guilt to bully the public into embracing their anti-American and anti-God agenda. Because the Left controls the media, they get away with falsely portraying their opposition. The Left...

    The conservative radio personality, Chris Plante (WMAL, Washington, DC) opines that the most insidious power of the media is their power to ignore. While it is certainly true that the chief editor of a major newspaper or the producer of a network newscast has the ability to spike or kill a story, which is essentially their way of “ignoring” the news if you will, what is more subtle, deceitful—and dare I suggest corrupt—is their penchant to frame a story to fit a specific narrative. They no longer report the news, but they do shape a message. There is not a...

    Voters who have relied on the network evening newscasts for information about the 2016 presidential candidates saw four times more airtime devoted to controversies involving presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump than to the scandals surrounding his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. Indeed, the only Clinton scandal to receive more than a minimal amount of attention from the networks during the primaries was the ongoing investigation of Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server and her mishandling of classified information while serving as Secretary of State. The networks paid little or no attention to a host of other Clinton controversies that likely...

Instead of Americans, Obama has them cheering for the terrorists. Obama supports Islam and those who are projecting their hate against America.

    The mainstream media have been hysterical this week in their response to Donald Trump’s revocation of the Washington Post’s campaign press credentials in response to coverage and headlines so unfair that the paper went back and changed them. Yet those same media outlets remained silent in 2008 when the Obama presidential campaign booted 3 major newspapers that had been writing unfavorably about the campaign off its press plane. Joe Concha of Mediaite remembers what happened 8 years ago, and contrasts the media response in the two instances: The year was 2008. The candidate had a big lead in the polls...

    The Orlando attack was horrifying. A sick individual who pledged allegiance to ISIS over the phone and on social media senselessly gunned down 49 people inside Pulse nightclub in what has become the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. He used a Sig Sauer MCX semiautomatic rifle, which is an AR-15-style rifle that has similar features, but uses a different operating system. It was not an AR-15 rifle as originally reported. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop members of the media from bashing the AR-15 because that’s the firearm liberal want to ban. More importantly, it’s the firearm that President Obama wants to ban, despite...

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ primary campaign was undermined by supposedly neutral party officials, according to a document snatched from Democratic National Committee by the hacker who calls himself “Guccifer 2.0.” The document shows that Clinton and the DNC have been working in together against Sanders from at least the spring of 2015. The document, dated May 26, 2015, shows that the DNC had already chosen Clinton as the party’s expected nominee and was going to work with reporters from mainstream outlets to downplay Clinton’s negatives and to highlight her positives throughout the course of the primary. The document was created...

    In the hours after Sunday’s mass shooting at an Orlando night club, Chief John Mina of the Orlando Police Department said the gunman’s weapons included a pistol and an “AR-15-type assault rifle.” On Monday night, officials clarified that the rifle Omar Mateen used in the shooting was not an AR-15, but a Sig Sauer MCX rifle. While aesthetically similar to and just as lethal as an AR-15, the MCX is internally a different beast, thus all but removing it from the AR-15 family of rifles. Yet while the weapon is different, the MCX and the AR-15 share the same design...

    We said yesterday the secret to the motive will be found behind Noor Zahi Salman, the second wife (current wife) of Omar Mateen. Why? Simply because she is transparently not presented within the MSM story. In essence she appears as the beard of Omar. The New York Daily News outlines the reality that terrorist Omar Mateen was gay. Remember, the Orlando nightclub, Pulse, is approximately 85 miles from his home with his wife Noor Salman, and their 3-year-old son.

    There is growing talk on the right of replacing Donald Trump, the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee for president, and even chatter about a possible alternative. As Trump has floundered over the past week after questioning a federal judge’s impartiality because of his Mexican ancestry, Trump’s critics within the GOP have stepped up their efforts to thwart him. Some anti-Trump conservatives, who have tried for months to recruit an independent candidate, have begun looking more closely at attempting to persuade delegates at next month’s GOP convention to nominate someone other than Trump. “There is a rapidly moving train toward the convention...

    Too much anti-Trump “op,” not enough Trump policy “ed”—as in edification. That’s my big beef with some of the most prestigious newspapers in the world during this critical presidential election season. Take of the case of the New York Times and its columnist Adam Davidson. I got a call from him several weeks ago for some quotes on Donald Trump’s trade policy. Before I could get two words out of my mouth, Davidson went on a rant about how he could never vote for Trump because of his stances on everything but trade—from the Great Wall of Mexico to Trump’s...

    Is the American population at large capable of independent thought anymore? With politics going the way they are today, it’s a question worth asking. As the 2016 election season progresses, it becomes more and more apparent on a daily basis that a vast majority of Americans on both the left and the right require their news to be ruminated, masticated, hashed and rehashed prior to consumption. Instead of using their brains to consume and synthesize facts concerning their country’s politics and politicians, Americans – more often than not – have consigned themselves to a state of cerebral laziness. For such...

    A writer for the Huffington Post is defending his recent op-ed that "a violent response” is the “logical” approach to stopping presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. Jesse Benn wrote in the op-ed titled “Sorry Liberals, A Violent Response To Trump Is As Logical As Any,” posted on Monday, “[T]here’s an inherent value in forestalling Trump’s normalization. Violent resistance accomplishes this.” "These denunciations of violence from anti-Trump protestors rest on the misguided view that the divide Trump’s exposed is a typical political disagreement between partisans, and should be handled as such.," he wrote. "This couldn’t be further from the truth. Trump...

    Truncated title. Full title: Pat Caddell: Associated Press Was ‘Purposefully Irresponsible’ in Declaring Early Victory for Clinton Early to ‘Suppress’ Sanders Vote During his Wednesday morning appearance on Breitbart News Daily with SiriusXM hosts Stephen K. Bannon and Alex Marlow, veteran political strategist Pat Caddell was furious over the Associated Press prematurely declaring the Democratic presidential primary over, and coronating Hillary Clinton as the nominee, before Tuesday night’s important votes were cast. “I have to tell you, somebody’s got to say that what the AP did, in announcing that she had won, the nomination was over, on the eve of...
  • Why Was Muslim UCLA Shooter Misidentified as a "White Male"?

    There is currently no indication that Muslim UCLA shooter Mainak Sarkar had any terrorist motives. Though his note has as yet of to be released. But of somewhat more interest is the question of why Sarkar was misidentified as a "white male". One of the more obvious things about Maniak Sarkar is that he is not a white male. He can't be mistaken for a white male. But media coverage has prompted people to expect white male shooters. It's a type of prejudice that we don't much talk about because it's a politically correct prejudice. It's a prejudice encouraged by...
