    NYT ^ | 5/31/20 | Robert D. McFadden
    In the isolation booth, Herb Stempel bit his lip to show tension. He dabbed sweat from his brow and sighed into the microphone. And as 50 million viewers hung in suspense, he seemed to agonize over the question in his last appearance on the rigged NBC quiz show “Twenty-One.” What movie won the Academy Award for best picture in 1955? It was Dec. 5, 1956, and Mr. Stempel, a City College student from Queens, was in his eighth week on the show, posing as a nerdy know-it-all. He had won $49,500. But his new rival was Charles Van Doren, a...

    Y’all do realize “antifa” is just short for “anti-fascists…” right? As in the people who confronted the nazis in Charlottesville… why would they try to burn and destroy black communities?— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) May 30, 2020 And why didn’t Bill Barr mention the “boogaloo boys” and other far right movements who per multiple reports are actively organizing online to try and start their fantasized “race war?” — Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) Is the DOJ even investigating this stuff? Or is Barr just doing the usual: appeasing Trump and his fans’ conspiracy theories??— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) And is the president really planning...

    While covering events in Minneapolis on Saturday, MSNBC host Ali Velshi was hit with tear gas fired by police, which Velshi said was done with “no provocation” and “nothing that happened whatsoever.” Velshi said, “Nobody was doing anything. They pulled in. They opened fire.” Velshi added, “There has been no provocation, Joshua. There was nothing that happened whatsoever. The police pulled into this intersection, unprovoked, right into the middle of the crowd, split the crowd, started firing in both directions. They now have fired at us.”
  • William Barr Fires Dana Boente, Identifies Antifa as Riot Organizers

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    William Barr’s big adventure took two huge steps on Saturday. First, Attorney General Barr went out of his way to call out the domestic terrorist and Democrat support group Antifa as one of the main organizers behind the nationwide set of riots happening in Democrat-controlled big cities this weekend. He also took great pains to note that the crossing of state lines to organize or participate in riots is a federal crime Here’s an outtake from his speech: “Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate and violent agenda. In many places, it...
  • ‘This BS needs a warning label’: Joy Reid not happy who Bill Barr blamed for riots with no proof ‘when it’s already documented as coming from white nationalist groups’

    Earlier this afternoon, Attorney General Bill Barr, speaking about the rioting in Minneapolis and other U.S. cities, said “it appears the violence is organized and driven by anarchic and far-left extremist groups using Antifa-like tactics” . . . So now, the attorney general, Bill Barr, is attempting to pin the anarchy and infiltration, which is already documented as coming from white nationalist groups, on "left leaning" ANTIFA groups. The goal is to force the media to repeat that. What is his proof? — Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid)

    NBC is prohibiting reporters from using the word “riot” in its coverage of violent outbursts in Minnesota that have occurred in response to the killing of George Floyd. “While the situation on the ground in Minneapolis is fluid, and there has been violence, it is most accurate at this time to describe what is happening there as ‘protests’–not riots,” NBC host Craig Melvin wrote on Twitter Thursday.

    MINNEAPOLIS — A police precinct was burned in Minneapolis as protests over the death of George Floyd raged for a third straight day. The blaze at the police department's 3rd Precinct, the base of four officers who were fired after Floyd's death in their custody Monday, was one among many fast-moving developments.

    An MSNBC journalist attempted to explain that the violence that erupted in Minneapolis on Thursday night was "mostly a protest" despite a building burning right behind him. Ali Velshi was reporting live from the Twin Cities amid the uproar following the death of 46-year-old George Floyd. Velshi attempted to explain that what he was witnessing was "calmer" than the night prior. "For most of the day, today, it looked a lot calmer than yesterday looked," Velshi began after showing his colleague Brian Williams some of the destruction that took place. "And that's what happened yesterday. It picked up later in...

    The subject came up at today’s White House briefing via a “question” from One America News, which sounded less like an actual question and more like a White-House-scripted talking point presented in the form of a question. Wouldn’t Trump totally destroy Scarborough on discovery if he dared file a lawsuit over his Lori Klausutis smears? Q: Would Trump welcome a defamation suit from Joe Scarborough?McENANY: I would refer you back to my previous comments that the audio from the Don Imus show is disturbing — there is a lot of laughing & joking about this matter that is certainly...

    Deep State operatives are leaking false stories on the Flynn-Kislyak transcripts ahead of a huge release in order to control the narrative. Former Acting DNI Ric Grenell already declassified the Flynn transcripts and John Ratcliffe, who was sworn is as the new Director of National Intelligence is set to release the transcripts soon! So now the Deep State is working with the media to spin, spin, spin. NBC News hack Geoff Bennett reported on Thursday afternoon that according to a ‘former Trump admin official,’ the Flynn-Kislyak calls that Grenell declassified are written summaries of the calls, not audiotapes. Deep State...

    The pulmonary doctor warned of serious risks from not wearing protective face masks amid the coronavirus pandemic, calling for lawmakers to require Americans to wear them by passing laws like those that banned smoking in public spaces. . . . The lung specialist accused people of “flouting” the rules by not wearing masks where coronavirus guidelines direct them to do so, citing an unrelated story of a security guard at a Family Dollar store in Flint, Michigan who was shot to death after he argued with a customer about wearing a face mask.

    An MSNBC reporter was humiliated live on air when he tried to shame passersby for not wearing masks in Wisconsin — even as most of his crew were also unprotected. Cal Perry was doing a live segment from Lake Geneva where he complained that “no one” was wearing masks as they enjoyed the Memorial Day sunshine. The masked reporter then turned his cameraman to shoot a man walking past, saying on air, “As you can see, no one is wearing them.” “Including the cameraman,” the local shot back, soon adding that “half your crew’s not wearing them.” Clearly embarrassed, Perry...

    An MSNBC reporter was called out by a bystander for attempts to shame people not wearing masks when half of his own camera crew were not wearing them. Cal Perry was delivering a Memorial Day report from Lake Geneva as hundreds traveled to enjoy the holiday weekend in Wisconsin, where businesses have reopened post lockdown. He was caught out while delivering a live report, when he attempted to use a passer-by as an example of people not wearing masks, only for the man to hit back with 'half your crew's not wearing masks!' Perry looked sheepish as he finished up...

    An MSNBC camera crew was caught off guard after a man recorded several members of the crew not wearing masks while they did a report scolding other people for not wearing masks. "Are they not worried about their own personal safety?" host Katy Tur asked a masked Cal Perry of those not wearing masks in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. "You can see here, just around, nobody is wearing them," Perry said. "Including the cameraman," said a bystander, who gestured to Perry's team. "Half your crew isn't wearing them, either."

    Newsbusters ^ | May 12, 2020 | P.J. Gladnick
    Although neither the words "incoherent" nor "not coherent" appear in a Monday Newsweek column by CNBC founder Tom Rogers, it is apparent that he is worried that the apparent Democrat presidential nominee, Joe Biden, lacks the coherency to defeat President Donald Trump in November. You can see Rogers' coherency fear about Biden right from the start in the column title, "WORDS MATTER. AND JOE BIDEN NEEDS TO USE HIS BETTER." Rogers starts out with his hopeful belief that Trump can be defeated in November. However, he follows that up with his horrible fear that poor Joe Biden lacks the ability...

    Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday blasted the media for its lack of response to the announcement that Robert Mueller's former prosecutor Andrew Weissmann will headline a virtual fundraiser for the Biden campaign. The campaign said publicly Wednesday that Weissmann will headline a “virtual fireside chat” moderated by Anne Milgram -- the former New Jersey attorney general -- on June 2. The chat will take place on Zoom, and “guests who RSVP by making a contribution... will be sent instructions for how to join via Zoom,” according to the invitation from the Biden “Victory Fund.”

    Twitter users are calling for Jimmy Fallon to be 'cancelled' after a Chris Rock impression he did in 2000 resurfaced showing him wearing dark makeup. It's the second time the clip has emerged in recent years and has reignited the debate on blackface and cancel culture. Most recently it surfaced when Megyn Kelly was let go from The Today Show in 2018 after she defended blackface Halloween costumes.
