    Before I called Bernie Sanders, I lit a candle in my living room and put on some gospel music. I wanted to center myself for what I knew would be an emotional phone call. I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested. I’d had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or...

    Normally this might be one of those things to pass off as just accidental or part of rushing a story to the headlines. However, in this instance CBS immediately reported an exclusive picture of New York Terrorist Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov. TWEET and WEBSITE On the left is the actual picture of 29-year-old Saipov; on the right is the version of the picture that CBS broadcast, used in newscasts and also put on their website. Notice any difference?

    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...
  • Media Skewered For Focus On Kevin Spacey Coming Out Rather Than Harassment

    Huffington Post ^ | October 30, 2017 | Dominique Mosbergen
    When the actor Kevin Spacey came out of the closet on Sunday while apologizing to actor Anthony Rapp for sexual harassment, many onlookers were aghast by the conflation. Many accused Spacey, 58, of attempting to deflect attention from Rapp’s claim that he was 14 when Spacey picked him up, “placed him on his bed and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance.” TV host Guy Branum called the diversionary tactic a “PR smokescreen.” Now, several news outlets are being skewered for stumbling into Spacey’s trap. As HuffPost contributor Yashar Ali noted on Twitter, the New York Daily News,...

    My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has...

    The big news out of the dying NFL this weekend is not that the Dallas Cowboys beat the hated Washington Redskins in the first of their two annual rivalry games. Nor is it that the New England Patriots survived a tough challenge from the recovering San Dieg…er, Los Angeles Chargers. No, the big news is that the Houston Texans, after having avoided significant controversy during this controversy-filled season, finally joined the rest of the league in staging a silly kneel-in during the national anthem prior to their game with the Seattle Seahawks, a game the Texans naturally went on to...

    Carl Bernstein said yesterday on CNN that Special Counsel Robert Mueller may be wanting "to send a signal to other prospective defendants," by filing his first charges yesterday in the Russia investigation. "If this person who has been indicted, or persons, are facing 20 to 40 to 50 years for whatever these crimes are - related to collusion or not - there may be others who are subject to similar charges who have further knowledge about dealings with Russia...There are a lot of intentions that the special council is trying to convey here, I suspect." Why it matters: The charges...

    The Daily Caller ^ | October 28, 2017 | Chuck Ross and Peter Hasson
    CNN’s reporting on the Trump-Russia dossier has left out at least one crucial fact: the close ties between the network and the opposition research firm at the center of the dossier controversy. CNN’s reporting on the dossier, led by justice correspondent Evan Perez, has been favorable to the firm, Fusion GPS, and hyped the dossier’s credibility. Left out of Perez’s reporting, which has relied largely on unnamed sources, is his personal closeness to Fusion GPS’ operatives. Fusion has repeatedly been described in Senate testimonies as a smear-for-hire operation that manufactures misleading or false media narratives for its clients. Glenn Simpson,...
  • Kaepernick and Christian Athletes

    Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick recently filed a grievance against the National Football League, accusing all teams of colluding to deny him a place on a team because he kneeled during the national anthem. As was true with Michael Sam, the openly gay player and activist who claimed after he was drafted and released that owners didn't want him, Kaepernick isn't playing because he's not worth signing. Period. So what is it that keeps Kaepernick in the media spotlight? They like him. Multimillionaire celebrities who wear Che Guevara T-shirts and socks that depict the police as racist pigs...

    Lawyers for the conservative publication Washington Free Beacon informed the House Intelligence Committee Friday that the organization was the original funder for the anti-Trump opposition research project with Fusion GPS. The Free Beacon funded the project from the fall of 2015 through the spring of 2016, whereupon it withdrew funding and the project was picked up by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

    Add another page to Donald Trump's weird recipe book—the president apparently ate rice and cherry pie for lunch on Tuesday with Senate Republicans. NBC News reporter Leigh Ann Caldwell broke the story right after the meal, tweeting that she overheard a Secret Service agent discussing Trump's intake: "He ate rice and two pieces of cherry pie. Took a few sips of his drink," Caldwell tweeted. "'He loves rice.'" Meatloaf was also served at the Tuesday luncheon, which came as top GOP senators were preparing to revamp the tax code. It's unclear whether the president ate any, but the American people...

    Daily Caller ^ | 10/26/2017 | John R Lott Jr
    Angry that the federal government cut funding to Chicago, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) claimed the Trump administration is contributing to the city’s violence. “So far this year, 3,000 people have been injured by gunshot in the city of Chicago and over 500 have been killed,” Durbin angrily told Attorney General Jeff Sessions during a hearing last week. Chicago is a mess. Last year, Chicago had 762 homicides — more than New York and Los Angeles combined. In 2016, homicides were up an incredible 57 percent from 2015. This year’s total is closing in on last year’s. But, despite the desire...

    That’s why you saw so many ashen faces, even open weeping, among the fake news people on CNN, MSNBC and the major networks as the results started coming in from Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania on Election Night. It’s why Hillary Clinton was incapable of coming out to speak to her loyal supporters once the results were known, and had to send her evil toady John Podesta out instead. Moreover, it’s also exactly why you saw the Democrats and fake news media start coordinating on the whole Trump/Russia collusion fantasy play immediately after the election – it’s a classic Projection strategy....

    CNN prides itself apparently in being a facts first organization. There’s that idiotic apple ad they’ve been running. This is what CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote on October 19, which pretty much slams President Trump for suggesting that the FBI, the Democrats, and Russia might be conspirators with these files. It was in reaction to a tweet in which the president said, “Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5th. Who paid for it, Russia, the FBI or the Dems (or all)?” He is suggesting that a dossier prepared by a former member of British intelligence...

    Regular people commenting at YouTube understand college campus hate crimes a lot better than the mainstream media Last year and this year, multiple hate crimes were committed at Eastern Michigan University, which consisted of written messages in public places, that included racial slurs against black people, and threats for black to people stay off campus.Yesterday, it was reported that the perpetrator of these anti-black hate crimes has been identified, and that he himself is black.Here’s a video of protestors from a year ago: first comment (based on the number of likes, I think) is from a year ago, and this is...
  • Media Skip Inconvenient Russia Truths

    CNN is airing a bizarre new advertisement with the motto "Facts First," which insists that the network calls an apple an apple, even if critics of its "news" reporting argue it's a banana. You see, CNN is interested in objective truth, not opinions. This would be like McDonald's advertising with an apple and saying the company is all about health food. Our "news" networks don't deal with facts first. They sell us narratives, and the favorite is the wild speculation about what might happen next to President Trump. For months, they have speculated about how meetings with powerful Russians would...

    Here’s one top takeaway from network news coverage in 2017: Sneaky Russian influence in American politics is a huge story if it involves Republicans/Donald Trump, but a non-story if it involves Democrats/Hillary Clinton. MRC analysts have been tracking all evening news coverage of the Trump administration since Inauguration Day. From Inauguration Day, January 20, through last Friday, October 20, these broadcasts have aired an astonishing 1,000 minutes of coverage discussing Russia’s attempt to boost Trump in 2016, and speculation that Trump’s campaign may have colluded with the Russians in this project. Last week, The Hill published new information about Russian...

    How do you know when the liberal media meltdown is approaching an apex? Just look for apples, bananas and a strong smell of smug. Reaching deep in their drawer of smug, CNN unleashed a “Facts First” initiative, starting with an ad featuring an apple, with a voice-over warning viewers that some awful, yet unnamed, person or network is trying to convince you the apple is a banana. While a juvenile attempt to discredit President Trump’s complaints about the network’s shoddy news coverage, they manage only to remind us of why they’re in this fix in the first place. What CNN...
