  • Sharyl Attkisson Pulls Back the Curtain

    American ^ | October 17, 2017 | John Dietrich
    Sharyl Attkisson’s The Smear gives insight to how news is made today. It goes a long way in convincing readers that they should believe only a small portion of what is released by the government and reported by the press. This leads to a very cynical view of the news and confirms Otto von Bismarck’s claim that "Nothing is proven until it is officially denied." Attkinsson gives an account of how massive the smear industry is. My only criticism of the book is her contention that, “the organized political smear entered the contemporary marketplace circe 1987.” Some of these smear...
  • Russian hackers more numerous than previously thought

    10/04/2017 7:48:51 AM PDT · by NorseViking · 33 replies
    Suspicions of Russian meddling in U.S. elections were confirmed Monday, when in the course of the Wisconsin recount Russian hackers succeeded in adding 131 more votes to Trump's victory. "The real winners in this recount were the Russian hackers," DNC spokesperson Shepard Smith said in a statement during his regular FNC broadcast. "It is now absolutely clear that American election results accurately reflect the will of Vladimir Putin, regardless of whether the ballots were counted by hand or by machine." In the meantime, president-elect Donald Trump continued his post-election thank-you tour throughout the country, expressing gratitude to Russian hackers everywhere...
  • After Declaring Bill Clinton Off Limits, CNN Targets Judge Roy Moore’s Wife

    In the heat of the 2016 presidential campaign, the leftwing cable news network CNN famously declared that the many sins of former-president Bill Clinton, spouse of then-Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton, were off limits. CNN even went so far as to cut the microphone of a guest who brought the former president up. Today, this very same CNN is targeting the wife of Alabama US senate candidate Judge Roy Moore. Some 15 years ago, the Republican Moore founded an organization called The Foundation for Moral Law. Nearly two years ago, on its Facebook page, the organization shared a video that suggested...
  • After Self-Reflection, Journalists Discover They’ve Been Too Critical Of … Democrats

    The Federalist ^ | September 19, 2017 | By David Harsanyi
    Journalism is in crisis. After some much-needed self-examination, however, reporters are finally beginning to figure out why many Americans are souring on their industry: They’ve been too critical of the Democratic Party. The trend was evident in 2016, when media outlets decided to focus on Hillary Clinton’s corruption, favor trading, and subsequent cover-up attempts. As any journalism professor could tell you, the purpose of reporting is to answer basic questions, like Who? What? When? Where? Why? And does this story help bolster the chances of the Democratic Party’s candidate or not? New York Times reporter Amy Chozick, who covered Clinton...

    Well, it looks like Hillary Clinton is moving onto the latest offensive in her rampage against those who she feels contributed to her defeat in the 2016 election: the media. At Recode in May, a tech conference in California, she said that the media covered her emails like it was Pearl Harbor. She also says that the press didn’t do their jobs last year, and that they “can’t bear to face their own role in helping elect Trump, from providing him free airtime to giving my emails three times more coverage that all the issues affecting people’s lives combined.”Seriously, lady—weren’t...

    New York Times reporter Amy Chozick said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” Sunday that Hillary Clinton’s new book talked like “it was our job to get Hillary Clinton elected.” The segment discussed Clinton attacking the media for perceived bias in reporting on her email scandal. WATCH: CNN’s Brian Stelter asked Chozick if there has been enough “soul searching about the press’s responsibility” for the 2016 election. Chozick responded, “I agree with Hillary Clinton that for an industry that thrives on investigation we’re bad at scrutinizing ourselves, and there could be more soul searching about our role in 2016. But the way...

    In a plot Tom Clancy might have dreamed up, an IT staffer who’d worked for Democrats in Congress was arrested by federal officials and charged with bank fraud. Fox News has reported that officers and agents from the U.S. Capitol Police, the FBI and Customs and Border Protection, were involved in the arrest of Imran Awan at Dulles International Airport not far from Washington, D.C., as he tried to fly away to Pakistan. Awan has pleaded not guilty to bank fraud, but his strange case has all the feeling of the opening scene of a movie that might soon include...
  • Imran Awan coverage betrays media bias

    07/31/2017 2:54:34 AM PDT · by ColdOne · 20 replies ^ | 7/31/17 | Bill D'Agostino
    A week has passed since the arrest of former House staffer Imran Awan, and the establishment media have given the event only superficial coverage. Awan, a Pakistani immigrant, was formerly employed by more than 30 House Democrats as an IT technician. Most members fired him following the announcement in February of an FBI probe into his potentially criminal behavior during his tenure as a Hill staffer. However, he remained an employee of Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s D.C. office until he was arrested last Monday while attempting to flee to Pakistan. News of Awan’s arrest first broke on Fox News the morning...

    Watching news outlets go out of their way to hide a potentially huge Democratic scandal is almost funny. So-called journalists are too busy covering presidential tweets to report on a topic that might embarrass their friends. Welcome to the Imran Awan-Debbie Wasserman Schultz scandal or Compugrab, as I like to call it. Awan was the top IT aide to Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The FBI reportedly “seized smashed computer hard drives” from his home. He was “arrested trying to flee to Pakistan after wiring almost $300,000 to the country,” according to The Daily Caller, which has owned the story...

    Major cable news networks have given no coverage to the burgeoning scandal involving IT staffers to former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis. Reporting by the Daily Caller News Foundation has revealed that Wasserman Schultz's top information technology staffer Iman Awan was arrested Monday after trying to flee the country amidst investigations into Awan concerning banking fraud and a criminal cybersecurity probe. Awan wired over $280,000 to Pakistan after the FBI recently recovered multiple smashed hard drives from Awan's home. Despite being blocked from the House computer network since February amid allegations of "committing...

    CNN’s Jim Acosta accused President Donald Trump of “fake news” on Thursday for claiming that “three of four” intelligence agencies had identified Russia as the culprit in hacking during the 2016 presidential election — but the president was right, and Acosta was wrong. Last week, the New York Times was forced to issue a correction, admitting that “17 intelligence agencies” had not, in fact, accused Russia, as Hillary Clinton had once claimed. The correction read, in part (original emphasis): The assessment was made by four intelligence agencies — the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency,...

    CNN reporter Jim Acosta took heat Thursday from conservatives on Twitter after the combative correspondent accused President Trump of holding a “fake news conference” -- and later spewed some "fake news" of his own when he claimed Trump misstated the number of intelligence agencies that concluded Russia meddled in the presidential election. During a joint news conference with President Andrzej Duda in Poland, Trump took questions from reporters from The Daily Mail and MSNBC. But that apparently wasn’t good enough for Acosta, who’s no stranger to sparring with Trump and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. “Trump finally held a...

    MSNBC’s self-crowned political referee, Chuck Todd, appeared to throw in the towel on enforcing D.C.’s political rules, or at least the journalistic ones. During the first segment of Monday’s MTP Daily, Todd and two of his panelists, Brian Karem and David Folkenflik, whined about how the media was expected to be impartial with President Trump attacking them. “But look, two generations of us as reporters. We're trained and conditioned to don't show emotion, we're the umpires and the referees.” Todd claimed. “When somebody is insisting on making you the story, what do you do? … I struggle with it.” It...

    The American Thinker ^ | 06/30/17 | Monica Showalter
    There's quite a brouhaha over President Trump's critical tweets directed at media talking head Joe Scarborough and his sidekick, Mika Brzezinski. Every other talking head is yelling 'unpresidential' and harrumphing away. Frankly, who cares? Everyone knows the president likes to yell at the television set. According to Glenn Reynolds, that makes him just like the rest of us. The tweets are just way of sharing that ire with us. Big deal. Nobody starves. Nobody wins the lottery. Nobody goes to war. Nobody gets cured. Nobody loses union benefits. Nobody's dog gets run over. Nobody's kids get taken away. Nothing of...

    I’ve been a journalist for a long time. Long enough to know that it wasn’t always like this. There was a time not so long ago when journalists were trusted and admired. We were generally seen as trying to report the news in a fair and straightforward manner. Today, all that has changed. For that, we can blame the 2016 election or, more accurately, how some news organizations chose to cover it.

    70% of the general public agrees that news organizations are subject to partisan agendas! The rise of fake news, a growing multitude of media sources, and an increasingly polarized nation have Americans learning to take their headlines with a grain of salt. New YouGov research shows that most Americans (70%) agree that news organizations report stories in a light that’s partial to who owns them. It’s interesting to note that the two prevailing political parties perceive media bias to varying degrees. About one in two Democrats (52%) believe that news media is influenced by funding while a drastically greater number...

    A Time Warner shareholder accused CNN of acting like it was the part the “resistance” movement against President Donald Trump. “I’m inquiring about CNN’s bias and our return on investment,” shareholder David Almasi reportedly told Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes during Thursday’s annual shareholders meeting. “Half the American public—which includes potential and current CNN viewers—voted for Trump last November and supports his agenda. CNN acts as if it is part of the anti-Trump resistance.” According to the Hollywood Reporter, “about half of the 300 people” at the annual shareholders meeting “applauded” Almasi while “several others later approached” him to “thank...

    The liberal media is still coming to grips with how Hillary Clinton could have possibly lost to Donald Trump. After all, she is the “smartest woman” in any room she enters. Or at least that’s what The Hill’s Amie Parnes told host Charlie Rose on his PBS show on Wednesday night. Rose invited on Parnes and Roll Call columnist Jonathan Allen to promote their new book “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” and asked the two to dissect the reasons for Clinton’s loss. For her part, Parnes cited Russia, James Comey and lack of enthusiasm by Bernie Sanders voters. Not...

    Dearest Goddess Gaia, who art wherever, please deliver unto us just one lousy victory against the evil Trumpenreich..... The Democrats, and their mainstream media allies, are so desperate for just one electoral win to prove that President Donald Trump is on a downslide that they have even hailed no change in special elections since the November general election as some sort of moral victory. Below the surface, however, they know they need a victory in a special election. It wasn't delivered to them last week in Kansas in the special congressional election to fill the seat of Mike Pompeo who was...
