    Russian President Vladimir Putin said the West should stop inventing "fictional threats" from Russia and instead focus on defeating terrorism together. "We need to think about what we want from the future. I think we all want security, peace, safety and cooperation," Putin told France's Le Figaro Wednesday. "Therefore, we should not build up tensions or invent fictional threats from Russia, some hybrid warfare etc." "What is the major security problem today? Terrorism. There are bombings in Europe, in Paris, in Russia, in Belgium. There is a war in the Middle East. This is the main concern. But no, let...
  • Great Moments in Fake News 'Journalism'

    What about President Donald Trump's complaint about "fake news"? Let's look at some examples of "Great Moments in 'Journalism'" over the last few years. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., in an appearance on ABC's Sunday morning political show hosted by George Stephanopoulos, called former Democratic Alabama Gov. George Wallace a "Republican." Ellison said, "At the same time, (in Trump) we do have the worst Republican nominee since George Wallace." Stephanopoulos either ignored or was ignorant of the fact that Wallace -- who proudly proclaimed, "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever" -- was a long-standing Democrat who served four terms as...
  • Media Advance New Narrative: “Mean Trump” With Phone Call Leaker in White House

    02/02/2017 1:46:49 AM PST · by onyx · 46 replies
    The latest Mostly Swamp Media (MSM) talking point is rather funny. Keeping up with the continuing technique of ‘media reports on media reports‘, today the preferred undermining narrative is to sell a tale of White House leakers.The Associated Press (AP) is transparently still upset about their first-question White House press decorum being violated by the vulgarian Spice; and on the heels of the deplorable decision to allow common-folk in fly-over country to Skype in questions to the daily press briefing (which began today), the AP publishes an account of bad hombre’ Trump talking to the magnanimous defender of all...

    For wary Washington journalists, it seemed only a matter of time before Donald J. Trump’s presidency would lead to a high-tension standoff between his administration and the news media. But on Day 1? The news media world found itself in a state of shock on Sunday, a day after Mr. Trump declared himself in “a running war with the media” and the president’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, used his first appearance on the White House podium to deliver a fiery jeremiad against the press.

    AMERICAN THINKER ^ | JANUARY 12, 2017 | Robert Arvay
    Someday, Bill O'Reilly may add to his list of historical books, which include Killing Kennedy and Killing the Rising Sun, the title Killing CNN.  It portends to be the chronicle of a vital turning point in American history, the death of the propaganda machine in our politics, and the resurgence of genuine journalism. I have for some time now eschewed referring to most American news institutions as "mainstream media" and instead termed them what they are: the Ministry of Propaganda (MoP). ~SNIP~ For those who may find themselves uneasy at the possibility of official censorship, remind yourselves that what...

    Two US senators are proposing legislation to counter, what they consider to be “disinformation” spread by certain foreign media. What better way to kick-start their campaign than by basing their bill on spurious nonsense? Republican Senator Rob Portman and his Democratic colleague Chris Murphy are deeply concerned about foreign “propaganda.” They demand that Uncle Sam throws even more money at the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), which is already given around $768 million annually. Not content with the EU’s Stratcom East and NATO’s Riga-based communications centre, Portman and Murphy want a new center for Information Analysis and Response to analyze...

    The plan to further bend the media dial in the direction of liberal political goals-- regarding a staffing move at NBC News and MSNBC. OBAMA ALUMNI: “Stephanie Cutter has joined NBC News and MSNBC as a Political Analyst. She will contribute exclusively on a range of topics across all platforms including Meet the Press, TODAY, Nightly and MSNBC.” Stephanie Cutter is a veteran of the Obama political machine and the fact that she’s no longer directly on the administration payroll hasn’t changed the tune she sings. The NBC announcement came on the same day as another bit of breaking political...

    In case you weren’t already aware: Mediaite contributing columnist Joe Concha has been hosting a brand-new show for Newsmax TV, called The Daily Wrap. This week we were pleased to hear that the show has been given a weeknight primetime slot of 7:00 p.m. ET. The show is a one-hour panel setting, featuring Concha–who has appeared many times as a pundit on Fox, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and Fox Business– as the main host alongside a left-leaning co-host, Rick Ungar, a Democratic consultant and Sirius XM radio host. The pair are joined nightly by two other panelists, typically including attorney Heather...

If it doesn’t you, and you can blindly ignore the status quo embraced by our politicians and low information voters, then I unapologetically call out your disloyalty to the ethical foundation of the greatest nation on earth. When you have a moment, please read my review of a jaw dropping, searing new book that provides the proof that Washington, D.C. has strayed so far from the...

    In an open letter to the public in late July, several retired Border Patrol agents wrote on behalf of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers to warn that Mexican drug cartels are actively operating inside the United States spending millions every year to try to build their networks here. They argued that American politicians are protecting their activities as well. “Transnational criminal enterprises have annually invested millions of dollars to create and staff international drug and human smuggling networks inside the United States; thus it is no surprise that they continue to accelerate their efforts to get trusted...

    CNN chief national correspondent John King could be ousted from the network in favour of new Chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper, MailOnline can reveal. King, 49, has already moved out of his office to make way for Tapper, 43, who was poached by new CNN boss Jeff Zucker from ABC. And now sources have revealed that King has not signed a new contract - and has instead signed an extension to his existing deal, leaving his future at the network unclear.

    For the past week or so, seems to me that no news network, including Fox, has said anything about anything other than 1) gun control, 2) the fake flu epidemic and 3) the mind-numbing doubletalk about the debt ceiling. IMHO, talking heads on Fox (I don't watch the others other than flipping past but they also only had the same three stories) seem very concerned, noticeably more than usual. Usually after a few days we get on to a "new" news cycle, but this one does not seem to be ending. And when it does, it just seems like it's...

    Hurricane Sandy brought with it unfathomable destruction. For the past few days we have endless reports of the suffering that is sure to continue for many weeks to come. As the nation prays for the victims and their lost loved ones and sends whatever support they can muster – I am stricken with the difference I see in the news coverage of Hurricane Sandy when contrasted with what we witnessed with Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans just a few short years ago. In early September of 2005 and the months, even years that followed, the media mantra was loud and...

    The American Spectator ^ | 10/19/12 | David Catron
    Shortly after Obamacare was passed and signed by the President, Michael Tanner of the Cato Institute noted a sudden plethora of articles that had begun to appear in a wide variety of MSM outlets about the probable ill-effects of "reform." This prompted him to ask, "Where were these reporters before the passage of the health care bill?" The answer to this question is now pretty obvious. They were colluding, via JournoList and other such forums that we don't know about, to make sure that no one screwed up and told the truth before that morass of taxes and regulations became...

    America’s news organizations did not spend much time reporting on the most recent Gallup poll ( that looked at how the public feels about them. That is understandable. After all, not many folks want to dwell on the fact that most of the world does not trust them. At least that’s what Gallup says about the state of the American journalism profession today. The survey determined six out of ten Americans (that’s 60 percent for those keeping score at home) have little or no trust in the media to do their jobs fully, accurately, and fairly. But this is nothing...
