  • Thought crimes, media abuse and those Catholic high school boys from Covington

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 1/23/2019 | John Kass
    What exactly triggered that hateful leftist social media mob—shamefully egged on by prominent American journalists—to unjustly attack the students at Kentucky’s Covington Catholic High School and denounce them as racists? The school has been closed. Death threats and bullying continue. Students and family complain they’ve been doxed—their identities revealed so that the hateful mob can harass them some more. So, what happened? Why were the students vilified? Was it simply for the sin of being white, Roman Catholic supporters of President Donald Trump, the boys having the gall to wear their “MAGA” hats at the March for Life? Or was...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Don’t blame her, she’s just like 74% of other Democrats. – The pathetically misinformed, abject ignoramus Alexandria Ocasio Cortez told an interviewer on Monday that “The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?” Yes, friends, it seems our planet has an expiration date now, and AOC has determined it to be the year 2031. So, to hell with saving for retirement or paying those bills, let’s just all go out to Vegas and blow...
  • Levin Blasts Ocasio-Cortez on Socialism: 'Who Decides Who Gets What, the Dept. of Ag?'

    Levin also asked the lawmaker to consider the advancements brought upon society by Bill Gates, Pennsylvania steel magnate Andrew Carnegie, Jeffrey Bezos and Henry Ford. "What has [Ocasio-Cortez] created? Any part time job?" he asked, adding that Ocasio-Cortez failed to lay out how she will deal with those in the higher income brackets. "Who decides who gets what? The Department of Agriculture?" he asked. "Americans do not like big, authoritarian, centralized government... We live better than kings and queens lived 250 years ago." Levin then offered an invitation to Ocasio-Cortez to join him on "Life, Liberty & Levin," saying that...
  • Limbaugh: NRO Pushed Covington Hoax to Win ‘Approval of the Mainstream Media’

    Rush Limbaugh identified National Review as a news media outfit that prioritizes the pursuit of “approval [from] the mainstream media” over veracity in reporting, offering his remarks on Monday’s edition of his eponymous show. Limbaugh highlighted recent news media narratives framing a group of Covington Catholic High School students as “racists,” including agreement from ostensibly conservative news media outlets and personalities.

    RUSH: The White House just announced that the speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, will not even have a conversation with President Trump about the government shutdown and any of the proposals to end it. Why is anybody surprised over this? You know, my degree of frustration here is mounting. And it’s all rooted in the fact that there are apparently still so many people on our side who do not instinctively understand who the left is, who the media, who the Democrat Party is — what their tactics are, what their objective is — and therefore don’t seem to...
  • Beyond BuzzFeed: The 10 Worst, Most Embarrassing U.S. Media Failures on the Trump-Russia Story

    The Intercept ^ | 1-20-19 | Glenn Greenwald
    BUZZFEED WAS ONCE notorious for traffic-generating “listicles,” but has since become an impressive outlet for deep investigative journalism under editor-in-chief Ben Smith. That outlet was prominently in the news this week thanks to its “bombshell” story about President Trump and Michael Cohen: a story that, like so many others of its kind, blew up in its face, this time when the typically mute Robert Mueller’s office took the extremely rare step to label its key claims “inaccurate.” But in homage to BuzzFeed’s past viral glory, following are the top ten worst media failures in two-plus-years of Trump/Russia reporting. They are...

    The Afternoon Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends) Just a week into his presidency, I briefly advocated in this space that President Trump should cancel the idiotic, 45 year-old tradition of holding daily press briefings at the White House. In May of 2017, I penned a longer piece on the subject that can be read at this link: Kill the White House Press Briefings Now. For those too lazy or time-constrained to read the whole thing, here is part of what I said in that piece: “The briefings lost all meaning in 2009, when the fake news media decided...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) This is a good morning to just ruminate on the state of the nation. Way back in 1994, when I was writing for a local newspaper in Texas, I wrote a piece about how dangerous it was for the future of our country that those on the political left, led by Saul Alinsky disciples Bill and Hillary Clinton, were in the process of destroying the entire nature of the Democrat Party. Prior to the elevation of the Clintons, the Democrat Party had been a party that was basically a hybrid of a...

    In the past 72 hours, there have been two major, all-consuming news cycles based on either inaccurate or outright false allegations. Equally distressing as the fact that the press promoted these stories, despite obvious red flags, is that some reporters continue to cling to the original bogus narratives. Because when it comes to accusations leveled against President Trump and conservatives, many in the nation’s largest and most powerful newsrooms are less arbiters of the truth and more active participants in the toxic, hyper-partisan culture wars. If there’s one takeaway from this weekend of clown-shoe news reporting, it’s that a disproportionate...

  • Sunday Was the Day When Real News Ceased to Exist

    DBDailyUpdate ^ | David Blackmon
    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The fake news appears to be undergoing a “quickening”, to borrow a phrase. As the fake journalists a the nation’s major media outlets carry out their increasingly frenzied efforts to carry water for the Democrats, the presence of anything remotely resembling real “news” reporting on the nation’s airwaves becomes little more than passing memories of a previous generation. On Sunday, pretty much the entirety of the establishment news media focused almost exclusively on two stories that fake reporters had simply invented: a) the Buzzfeed report that claimed President Donald Trump had ordered...

    (Skip) The Associated Press reported that Gillette’s new toxic-masculinity ad caused an “online uproar.” “Gillette Ad With a #MeToo Edge Attracts Support and Outrage,” claimed The New York Times. “Gillette faces backlash and boycott over ‘#MeToo advert,” ran a typical headline in the BBC this week. Outrage? Uproar? Backlash? I’d say it’s more like a hacklash. It’s journalists dealing out pretend outrage. (Skip) After an anonymous Twitter user posing as a hater posted video of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doing a cute “Breakfast Club” dance on a rooftop while she was apparently still in college, Republicans were reported to be going bonkers....

    Everyone in the establishment media knew BuzzFeed’s report about President Trump suborning perjury from his then-personal attorney, Michael Cohen, was a lie. What they did not expect was special counsel Robert Mueller dropping a fact check on them. They all knew it was a lie. How could they not? To begin with, BuzzFeed admitted it could not verify its own story. Secondly, the story made absolutely no sense. There were two huge tells proving the BuzzFeed story a lie. 1) It made no sense that the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., testified accurately about the very thing Trump reportedly told...

    Man, you gotta hand it to the news fakers over at the fake news site Buzzfeed (even its name screams out “fake news!”, doesn’t it?) . After all, how many news outlets can brag that they have out-faked CNN and the New York Times when it comes to reporting about President Donald Trump? After Thursday and Friday, when it first fake-reported a story – based solely on “anonymous sources” of course – claiming that then-Candidate Donald Trump ordered his crooked ex-attorney Michael Cohen to lie to the Special Counsel’s investigators about a planned real estate development in Moscow, and then...

    Government Shutdown, Day…um, what day is it? 28? 29? This fake, partial, sort of “shutdown” of parts of a quarter of the federal government has now dragged on so long it’s become impossible to keep up anymore. But oh, what a glorious fake government shutdown it became on Thursday. That day, January 17, 2019, will be remembered into posterity as the date when this became, without any doubt at all, the greatest, most entertaining government shutdown in the history of all government shutdowns. Just a day after Speaker San Fran Nan sent over a petty and utterly dishonest letter to...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) By dis-inviting President Donald Trump from delivering the annual State of the Union address to a joint session of congress, Speaker San Fran Nan provides the President with a golden opportunity to do one of two great things for our nation: Eliminate the State of the Union tradition entirely, or move it to America’s heartland, where it belongs, and deliver it to real Americans. Contrary to all the bad information spread all over social media yesterday, no president is under any constitutional obligation to give this speech. All the constitution requires of...
