    Canada Free Press (CFP) Prediction: Journos in the press corps will turn on Stephanie (Rocky) Grisham before this day is out. The music theme from the ‘Rocky’ movie should be playing in the heads of Jim Acosta and other journos whenever they hear the name of new White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham. But members of the mostly anti-Trump White House press corps will, rather than being grateful that she cleared the path for them to cover the President Donald Trump/Kim Jong Un handshake will be too busy looking for ways to knock her out of the ring.

    Stephanie Grisham replaced Sarah Sanders as White House press secretary only recently, but Grisham reportedly has already been injured on the job. Grisham suffered bruises when a scuffle broke out Sunday between North Korean security guards and members of the media trying to get close to President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as they shook hands at the Demilitarized Zone, the Associated Press reported.

  • Seriously? CNN Panelist 'Hasn't Heard Journalists Talk' About Wanting Impeachment Hearings

    CNN's Brian Stelter, the host of "Reliable Sources," asked his panel one simple question: has the media pushed the idea of impeaching President Donald Trump? The responses to the question are seriously nothing shy of amazing... or rather delusional. "I have a kind of provocative question here: Is the press rooting for impeachment? Do journalists want to see the president impeached?" Stetler asked. "...is there something to the idea, Sam, that newsrooms, journalists, want to see impeachment hearings?" According to Samantha Vinograd, President Obama's former Senior National Security Advisor, there's a difference between journalists and analysts. Journalists report straight news...

    President Trump might be openly hostile to the mainstream media, but it was the Obama administration that was engaged in a widespread effort to thwart the media. Which do you think is more harmful to a free press? The full extent of Obama’s actions against the press are only now coming to light. The Columbia Journalism Review reports on a newly released government document showing that the Obama Justice Department engaged in a far more sweeping effort to spy on the Associated Press than previously believed. “In 2013, the Justice Department launched a brazen attack on press freedom,” the CJR...

    The president of the United States celebrated a milestone last week, though I'm not entirely sure milestone is the mot juste. The Washington Post announced that the president had perpetrated the 10,000th lie of his administration at a rally in Wisconsin. The lying began on the afternoon of his inauguration, when he declared that the ceremony attracted the largest crowd in American history. The lies grew and grew and spread like hordes of zebra mussels covering everything in their path. If he keeps up this pace, odds makers say, he will have told 22,500 lies by election day next year....

    Saturday night’s White House Correspondents dinner once again came and went without most Americans having paid it any serious attention, and for the third straight year, our president chose to miss this increasingly farcical event where journalists pat each other on the back for the fine jobs they believe themselves to be doing.  What made this year’s event a little different than years past is that none of the other senior members of the White House staff attended, either. “That decision came after Sarah Huckabee Sanders endured cruel taunts at the hands of last year’s featured speaker, comedian Michelle...

    A reporter for the Daily Caller found Democratic Senator Robert Menendez at a Capitol Hill subway stop and asked him what he thought about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal. Democrats have been screaming for two years about Donald Trump's "war on the press." But Trump's got nothing on Menendez when it comes to going to war. Fox News: Menendez avoided the question and asked where Rodgers worked. Rodgers said that when he told Menendez he worked for the Daily Caller, the Democrat responded by saying he would not answer any questions. An intern who was with Rodgers asked a...

    The independent student newspaper at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, published an op-ed in which the student author slammed conservative ideas, saying they "are not equal to liberal and left ideas." The piece, titled "It's OK that conservatives don't feel welcome," appeared in the "Student Life" paper. The op-ed's author explained that conservative ideas don't "deserve equal consideration to that afforded liberal and left ideas." "There is no legitimate argument for supporting Donald Trump and his allies, at least not one that holds up in any academic community worth its salt," the author wrote. "But we shouldn’t create an...

    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders spent most of Thursday afternoon stepping in and out of her private office to field questions from reporters huddled in the hallway, seeking more answers on the president’s surprise letter denying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi use of military aircraft for her congressional delegation overseas. The crowding of the West Wing hallway, in what is known as 'upper press,' has become the new norm for reporters seeking information or comment from the White House on major headlines over the past 35 days – a record for the span of time without an on-camera briefing during...

    Confrontations between good guys and their adversaries are the stuff of Hollywood box office legend. For example, there’s a great scene in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight where Batman (essayed by Christian Bale, an immigrant from Wales who has happily raked-in millions in American films but who felt compelled at the recent Golden Globe awards to thank Satan as his inspiration for portraying Dick Cheney) comes face-to-face with Heath Ledger’s evil villain The Joker.BATMAN: “Why do you want to kill me?”THE JOKER: (Wildly cackling) “I don’t want to kill you! What would I do without you? No.  No, you….complete me.”Substitute Donald...

The Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment, which together orchestrate the iconic midnight celebration, says that the event this year will officially celebrate "journalists and press freedom" by making the Committee to Protect Journalists its official charity. That is the group that, before President Trump was elected, took the unprecedented step of declaring the...

    In the wake of Trump’s announcement this week that his administration would continue to “stand with Saudi Arabia” despite the recent murder of Washington Postcolumnist Jamal Khashoggi, America’s mainstream media elites erupted in their usual paroxysms of despair and condemnation of the president. Although this time the typical “orange man bad” stories tended to omit calls for Trump to be immediately overthrown by the military or his own cabinet, almost every other major trope was preponderant. This was especially true of Khashoggi’s former place of employment at the Post, where journalists almost universally portrayed Trump as having blood on...
