    Snopes refused to correct an inaccurate fact-check calling it “unproven” that American Indian activist Nathan Phillips falsely claimed to be a Vietnam veteran. It’s a proven fact that Phillips falsely claimed to be a Vietnam veteran. Both Facebook and Google give Snopes preferential treatment on their platforms. Snopes, a left-leaning fact-checking website given preferential treatment by both Facebook and Google, flubbed its fact-check of American Indian activist Nathan Phillips’ false claim of being a Vietnam veteran.
  • Journos Meltdown After Being Told 'Learn To Code' In Wake Of Mass Layoffs At HuffPo, Buzzfeed

    After news came out about mass layoffs at HuffPost, Buzzfeed and Gannett -- in the midst of the media's relentless smear-job against the Covington Catholic students -- right-wing Twitter had a field day. Tons of leftist journalists announced they were laid off on Twitter and the top meme was telling them to "learn to code" -- which is the same advice the media gave middle Americans whose jobs are being taken in traditional industries. Talia Levin, who was hired by Media Matters last year after being fired by the New Yorker for smearing an ICE agent as a Nazi because...
  • Imagine if the Media Had as Much Sympathy for Small Business Owners as it Does for Federal Employees

    Mises Institute ^ | 01/18/2019 | Ryan McMaken
    During this partial government shutdown, it's become nearly impossible to avoid news articles, and segments on television and radio outlining the many ways that federal employees are apparently suffering financially as a result of the partial government shutdown.The stories are very diverse in topic. Some take a "human interest story" angle, simply looking at how the daily lives of some of these employees have been affected. Others look at the apparent injustice of the fact that some workers are "being told to work without pay." Still other suggest that the lack of federal paychecks will drive down economic growth figures....

    Walt Heyer knows firsthand what it’s like to undergo sex change surgery and then regret it. After living as a woman for nearly a decade, he decided to accept his biological sex and de-transition back to male. By then, Walt had received intensive cognitive therapy that helped him recognize early childhood trauma he had experienced.The trauma resulted in a mental condition known as dissociative identity disorder (DID). In the clarity of that realization, his gender dysphoria simply vanished. His life as a “woman” all amounted to an attempt to escape reality. Sadly, too few people consider the possibility that...
  • Tucker Carlson Shows Corporate America How to Stand Up to Activists [Good read]

    There are few sights these days as pitiable as a corporation acceding to the demands of radical activists on the basis of an ostensibly insensitive comment made by one of its officials or employees. As the script normally dictates, the offending individual steps down, while the company profusely apologizes for its insensitivity and vows to redouble its commitment to “diversity.” That’s what makes Fox News Channel’s refusal to fire political talk show host Tucker Carlson in the face of an activist-triggered advertiser boycott so refreshing. By resisting the speech police, the network just might have set an example for other...
  • Inside The SPLC/Media Matters/MSM Machine Smearing Republicans

    10/29/2018 12:05:18 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 3 replies
    There is a new, well-financed, well-oiled smear machine that is spinning up mud and using the media to spread it as though it is legitimate news. It goes like this: The Southern Poverty Law Center uses its anti-conservative, anti-Christian, pro-Muslim, pro-illegal immigration, pro-LGBTQ metrics to identify “hate groups.” The result: It has managed to label as hate groups such organizations as the Family Research Council, the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Center for Family and Human Rights, social scientist and researcher Charles Murray, Muslim analyst Frank Gaffney, the non-profit Center for Immigration Studies and its leader Mark Krikorian and Ayaan Hirsi...

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 28, 2018 01:53 PM | Joe Williams
    Fox Business on Sunday said it pulled an episode of "Lou Dobbs Tonight" that contained what critics said was anti-Semitic sentiment just a day after a gunman killed 11 people in a synagogue in Pittsburgh. In the segment, Judicial Watch official Chris Farrell claimed a Central American migrant caravan moving towards the U.S. southern border is being funded by the "Soros-occupied State Department." Farrell was referencing George Soros, a Jewish billionaire and political activist who routinely funds Democratic candidates and initiatives. “We condemn the rhetoric by the guest on Lou Dobbs Tonight. This episode was a repeat which has now...

    According to The Hill, Fox Business Network [specifically Lou Dobbs’s show] will no longer book a guest who blamed the latest migrant caravan on the “Soros-occupied State Department.” “We condemn the rhetoric by the guest on Lou Dobbs Tonight,” Gary Schreier, senior vice president of programming for Fox Business, said in a statement, according to CNN. “This episode was a repeat which has now been pulled from all future airings.” A Fox News spokesperson told CNN that the guest, Judicial Watch head Chris Farrell, will no longer be booked on Fox Business Network or Fox News. He’s a very interesting...

In scores of cases, graduates of the Rockwood Leadership Institute founded or directed notorious Soros-financed activist groups, such as Black Lives Matter, Media Matters for America, MoveOn.org and the Tides Foundation, one of the nation’s largest funders of progressive groups.

    ...yet three people supposedly who had contact with Rep. Foley found it. Truthout’s Jason Leopold is implicated through mere speculation, as is C.R.E.W. because they’re the ones who released the shocking string of emails.......... the latest democratic hitjob which is being discussed behind the scenes, under the covers, and is now out in the open, thanks to CREW, the group that is representing Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson in their ridiculous lawsuit even after they’ve been exposed as a couple of democrat pandering liars. This reveals in my mind a hypocritical double-standard. Peter Porcupine pointed out to a group of...

    Conservative Firing Line ^ | October 12, 2018 | Jim Simpson
    On Friday, the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America virtually admitted it was directing a purge of more than 800 Facebook pages and accounts. It noted that Facebook shut down a bunch of pages run by “fake news” outlets on Thursday. But then said the social media giant missed some. Would not be surprised to see those “missed” sites shut down soon. Note that whereas Facebook claimed its decisions were “behavior violations,” not “content violations,” MMFA goes out of its way to identify the content. It says, “Facebook’s takedown removed a plethora of bad actors who have used networks of...

    Billionaire globalist George Soros is planning to eliminate the majority of Trump supporters from social media before the 2020 election, according to a leaked document. The 49 page document outlines plans by Soros to exert his influence, via his immense personal wealth, to pressure Big Tech to censor and purge pro-Trump journalists, citizens and outlets ahead of the next Presidential election. "A confidential, 49-page memo for defeating Trump by working with the major social-media platforms to eliminate "right wing propaganda and fake news" was presented in January 2017 by Media Matters founder David Brock at a retreat in Florida with...

    The recent wave of censorship of conservative voices on the internet by tech giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Apple mirrors a plan concocted by a coalition of George Soros-funded, progressive groups to take back power in Washington from President Trump’s administration. A confidential, 49-page memo for defeating Trump by working with the major social-media platforms to eliminate “right wing propaganda and fake news” was presented in January 2017 by Media Matters founder David Brock at a retreat in Florida with about 100 donors, the Washington Free Beacon reported at the time. On Monday, the Gateway Pundit blog noted the memo’s...

    Remember last month when celebrities like actor Ron Perlman smeared as a Nazi a veteran of the Marine Corps and double amputee who now works for ICE as a computer forensics analyst? They misread his tattoo which is a symbol of his platoon. A New Yorker fact-checker spread the lie far and wide without checking with the veteran. Talia Lavin, the now-former fact checker for The New Yorker, was hired by the radical-left Media Matters to fact-check right-wing outlets. This comes within a month of her slandering the disabled veteran and ICE employee as a Nazi. She is now free...
