  • CNN’s Jim Acosta Complains That White House Takes Questions From Conservatives

    CNN reporter Jim Acosta complained Tuesday that White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was taking too many questions from conservatives. “Does this feel like America?” Acosta complained on Twitter. “Where the White House takes q’s from conservatives, then openly trashes the news media in the briefing room.” CNN found itself in another scandal early Tuesday after the conservative group Project Veritas released an undercover video in which a health news producer for the network was recorded saying that CNN’s coverage of Trump-Russia connections was “mostly bullshit.” Sanders asserted that the video was “a disgrace to all of media.”

    We were trying to count the people standing in a breadline when William Contreras arrived. The line was forming outside of a bakery in the Caracas run-down neighborhood of Catia, about 20 people long with a half dozen more sprinting past me and our photographer, Cristian Hernández. It was a perfect illustration of the desperate situation of a country that was, a few years ago, boasting of its oil-funded socialist prosperity. Contreras was our government minder, a bulky 50-year-old alderman with salt-and-pepper hair. When he pulled up to us, he seemed oblivious to the snaking line.

    President Trump renewed his attack on CNN as “fake news” on Tuesday morning after conservative provocateur James O’Keefe released a video of CNN producer John Bonifield criticizing the cabler’s coverage of Trump’s ties to Russia. Early Tuesday, Trump suggested in a tweet that “Fake News CNN” was in for a management shakeup. The video released by O’Keefe’s Project Veritas features a nine-minute discussion with Bonifield, supervising producer of the CNN Health unit, in which Bonifield criticizes CNN’s heavy focus on the probe into the Trump administration’s connection to Russian officials. Bonifield describes the Trump-Russia story as “mostly bulls—” and said...

    Video: CNN Producer John Bonifield admits that CNN is engaging in a “witch hunt” against Donald Trump, that is has no real proof for its claims, and that it told these lies to get bigger ratings In the past, I’ve written about many examples of media bias. But this new one may be the biggest such example that I have written about so far. CNN Producer John Bonifield was recorded on a hidden camera saying that: 1) There is no real proof for CNN’s claims about the association between Donald Trump and Russia. 2) CNN told these lies about Trump...

    It’s increasingly difficult to keep up with the plethora of depraved leftists losses. Now almost a daily basis as they wring their gnarled fingers waiting for victory tomorrow, the proverbial dawn that doesn’t arrive. The CNN confession today confirms what informed people have preached. Those not blinded by the fanaticism of a wildly failed ideology with unprecedented religious ferocity. Where mindless cliches reign supreme with steel-booted thuggery on the neck of reason. That altar they bowed to without question in weeping acceptance arrogant is all based on the pablum sheep crave. The acknowledgement of their self-worth suffering, the answer that...

    Less than a year after famed (or infamous) media gossip site Gawker was forced to close by a eight-figure settlement in favor of wrestler Hulk Hogan, the successor to the former Gawker Media empire finds itself in the legal crosshairs. It's for another lawsuit seeking major damages — and it’s the same lawyer taking aim. This time, attorney Charles Harder, who has also represented First Lady Melania Trump in her libel lawsuit against the Daily Mail, is handling the lawsuit on behalf of RJ Bell, real name Randall James Busack, the founder and CEO of, a sports handicapping Web...

    It was many years ago, but the memory lingers of the first time I was embarrassed to be a journalist. It was a steamy summer afternoon and reporters and photographers were shoe-horned into a small Manhattan apartment for a civic group’s announcement. As we waited, a photographer wearing a “press” card in his battered fedora picked up a bud vase from a table, pulled out the rose and drank the water in one gulp. The hostess was horrified and shrieked, “What are you doing?” He looked at her as if she were nuts and said simply, “It’s hot in here...

    Former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin filed a lawsuit against the New York Times Tuesday over an editorial that tied her to the January 2011 shooting of an Arizona congresswoman. Palin's attorneys claim that the paper defamed her in the June 14 editorial, published hours after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., was shot and wounded while practicing with the GOP's baseball team in Alexandria, Va. The editorial, attributed to the Times' editorial board and titled "America's Lethal Politics," initially linked Palin's rhetoric to the shooting that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including then-Rep. Gabrielle...

    These are difficult times for America’s journalists, and not just because it’s been such a struggle to replace the failed business models of the 20th Century (but hey, we’re working on it). Since the dawn of the 2016 presidential campaign, reporters have been harassed, threatened and even arrested and charged with felonies for simply doing their jobs. The winner of that election has threatened to remove libel protections and retaliate against specific news organizations while riling up crowds against the media at his Nuremberg-style rallies. Some moves by the Trump administration are unprecedented, including the latest: Frequently ordering journalists not...

He tweeted at CNN’s White House correspondent, Jim Acosta saying, “Hey, tell your soon to be fired boss Jeff Zucker to tune in tonight 10 EST Hannity Fox News Fair and Balanced.

    Shortened title. Full title: Reporter Brian Karem Playing To Camera Audience – Ironically Highlights Why All Press Briefings Should Be *Off Camera* It only took one-half of one on-camera press briefing before the insufferable White House Correspondents press pool displayed exactly why there should not be cameras in the briefing room. Reporter Brian Karem had been waiting patiently for the cameras to return to the briefing room so that he could once again grandstand for his moment of fame and back-patting accolades from his like-minded media pals inside the correspondent’s echo-chamber. Methinks Brian ‘sloth-dresser‘ Karem doth protest too much:

    Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the White House Press Corps on Tuesday that CNN was “a disgrace to journalism.” Sanders’s remarks came after CNN retracted a “fake news” story over the weekend alleging links between a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team and a Russian firm, and after an exposé on Monday by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas showed a CNN producer admitting the Russia story was “bullsh*t.” Earlier in the day, President Donald Trump had blasted CNN on Twitter, along with other mainstream media networks. He also retweeted a parody of the CNN logo that recast the...

    you want to know who has privilege in a society and who doesn’t, follow the anger. There are people in this country who can safely express their anger. And those who can’t. If you’re angry that Trump won, your anger is socially acceptable. If you were angry that Obama won, it wasn’t. James Hodgkinson’s rage was socially acceptable. It continued to be socially acceptable until he crossed the line into murder. And he’s not alone. There’s Micah Xavier Johnson, the Black Lives Matter cop-killer in Dallas, and Gavin Long, the Black Lives Matter cop-killer in Baton Rouge. If you’re black...

    Fox News host Sean Hannity called for CNN President Jeff Zucker to be fired Monday in the wake of a fake news scandal embroiling the anti-Trump network that resulted in the resignation of three of its top journalists. Hannity accused Zucker of destroying the network with lies and “VERY FAKE NEWS.” Hannity made the call just hours after it was announced that three employees including the executive editor of a new investigative unit resigned after CNN was forced to retract an article connecting a Russian investment firm to associates of President Trump.

    At Monday’s audio-only and photos-only White House press briefing, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta continued to make a fool out of himself, melting down and screaming at press secretary Sean Spicer over the current set-up for briefings. Acosta first interrupted after a female reporter didn’t get her question answered. When he yelled at Spicer to answer her question, Spicer lobbed some A+ shade at Acosta: “There's no camera on, Jim.”‘There’s No Camera on, Jim!’ Showboating CNN’s Acosta Yells at Spicer Over Press AccessThe CNN liberal immediately took Spicer’s bait, screaming as Spicer tried to move on: “Maybe we...
