    It was many years ago, but the memory lingers of the first time I was embarrassed to be a journalist. It was a steamy summer afternoon and reporters and photographers were shoe-horned into a small Manhattan apartment for a civic group’s announcement. As we waited, a photographer wearing a “press” card in his battered fedora picked up a bud vase from a table, pulled out the rose and drank the water in one gulp. The hostess was horrified and shrieked, “What are you doing?” He looked at her as if she were nuts and said simply, “It’s hot in here...

    Circulation of daily newspapers has dropped to a 77-year low, signaling an end to print and a shift to all-digital delivery, according to a new industry review. The Pew Research Center said that circulation has reached a new low of 34.6 million, six million less than papers sold in 1940.

    Every morning I wake up before 5am Eastern and switch on the TV to watch the early version of ″Fox & Friends″. Aside from enjoying my breakfast with the lovely Heather Childress, I learn what the ′Big News′ item is for the day ahead. The big topic this morning was a Midnight tweet on Twitter by President Donald Trump. The story is that he allegedly misspelled the word ′coverage′ when he wrote ′covfefe′ instead in a tweet about the negative press. As a Shaolin Master Abbott of the Temple of Trump Fu, I saw the true purpose of the...

    We didn't get to the point people find the press less credible than the Trump administration by some freak accident. The one thing that these reports have in common is that they fail to provide readers with a clear and indisputably accurate picture of what is really going on at White House. The press's most important role is to shine a light on those in power. Bad reporting only muddies the waters, and it gives powerful people more room to do as they please. After all, whom are you going to believe: the guy at the top or the...

  • Charting the Liberal Media Leaks: No Valid Sources, Many Invalidated, Possibly Just Made Up Lies

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 5/21/17 | Jim Hoft
    Per an analysis of a dozen of the most recent so called ‘leaks’ being reported and repeated by the liberal mainstream media (MSM) involving President Trump, the probability that these ‘leaks’ are just plain lies is very high. An analysis of the most recent leaks clearly shows that the leaks are being reported by very biased liberal MSM outlets that were adamantly opposed to the election of President Trump. These ‘leaks’ in all cases are not supported with any names of so-called sources. Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly made some statements in the ‘leaks’ but to this date he...

    Whenever I mention the news media leans ridiculously far to the left, that it has lost half the country with its attitude and that the tone of the coverage of President Donald Trump is over-the-top hostile, I get the same darn reaction. The eye-roll. That big Anderson Cooper CNN eye-roll, often accompanied by a few theatrical sighs. And when I leave the newsroom, it gets even worse on social media. But now Harvard University's Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy has come out with a study of media coverage of the Trump White House in its first 100...

    On February 17, 2017, President Donald Trump created a firestorm of controversy when he tweeted that the news media (The New York Times, CNN, NBC, and many more) is not his enemy, but is the enemy of the American people. In scrutinizing the Times, in relation to the culture war and major issues within the public square, the indictment, though I have many differences with the president, rings true for me, because, the vast majority of the time, I find myself on one side of an issue and theyÂ’re on the other.And, more than that, there is an overall historical...

    President Trump and I have something in common. We were both invited to last Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner and we declined. The president wasn't interested in hearing himself mocked by an industry that holds him to a different standard than his predecessor and I wasn't interested in hearing the predictable jokes denigrating all things Republican, conservative and Fox News. Beyond the less than funny standup act by the "comedian" Hasan Minhaj (I never heard of him until Saturday night), was another example of the denial that has imperiled the once noble profession of journalism. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein...

    Ghost in the machine The MainStream Media has become the "ghost in the machine". They were at one time a valuable leg in the three legged stool supporting our republic. They kept the government honest and reported directly to the people the facts of government and society without bias. How time and greed have corrupted that charter. Now they most commonly are the news instead of reporting it as independent assessors. They still retain a significant power protected by our constitution but now wield that sword in support of their own agenda just as a ghost in the machine. Like...

    When given the choice between attending the White House Correspondents dinner — a swampy D.C. event brimming with uber-rich, out-of-touch media elites — or headlining a rally jam-packed with the kind of real working-class Americans who elected him to the White House, our new president chose the latter. President Trump’s bold decision proved once again that he’s not just a brilliant businessman — he also has excellent political instincts. Why should the president attend a high-profile media event aimed at giving gravitas and ratings to a hyper-partisan industry that has covered his campaign, transition and first 100 days with an...
  • Politico Poll Of White House Press Corps Includes Grand Total Of Three Republicans

    Washington Free Beaconu ^ | 4-30-2017 | David Rutz
    Only three Republicans are represented in Politico Magazine‘s poll of the White House press corps asking their thoughts about covering President Trump's administration. According to the fourth annual poll, 63 press corps members were surveyed, and only five percent of them were registered Republicans, the same percentage that listed "other." Sixteen percent were Democrats, 37 percent were independents, and 37 percent were non-registered. Last year, none of the 72 members of the White House press corps it surveyed were Republicans, effectively showing an uptick of three members of the GOP in the poll. Since the election, the mainstream press has...

    Toward the end of his comic opus on the press, politics and President Trump, the “Daily Show” comedian Hasan Minhaj looked out at the hundreds of journalists gathered in a subterranean hotel ballroom here on Saturday night and declared, “This has been one of the strangest events I have ever done in my life.” The lengthy laughter and applause that followed made clear that he was not the only one who thought that way. No one knew quite what to expect at this year’s edition of the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, the chummy Washington ritual that became a...
