Rather went on to decry the ďdirty, nasty electionĒ and warn of "violence" if Trump is left unchecked...

    WASHINGTON (AP) ó Trust in the news media is being eroded by perceptions of inaccuracy and bias, fueled in part by Americans' skepticism about what they read on social media. Just 6 percent of people say they have a lot of confidence in the media, putting the news industry about equal to Congress and well below the public's view of other institutions. In this presidential campaign year, Democrats were more likely to trust the news media than Republicans or independents. But trust today also goes beyond the traditional journalistic principles of accuracy, balance and fairness. Faced with ever-increasing sources of...

A calculating, power-mad machine politician with a history of duplicity and rule-breaking versus an economically ignorant and boorish rabble-rousing American version of Mussolini and Peron. This ďchoiceĒ is akin to one between being killed by garroting or by being burned at the stake. The only ďbenefitĒ of a Clinton victory is that it means a Trump defeat. Ditto for a Trump victory.

And he drew a connection between U.S. foreign policy and domestic culture, arguing that "in recent years, there has been far too much institutionalization of grievance and victimhood." The Australian-born media mogul, a naturalized U.S. citizen, also touched on the Republican presidential primary, which he said "has articulated a deep distaste for the slow descent of our country."

    WASHINGTON ó After each of Hillary Clintonís campaign events, a large group of reporters gathers on one side of the room and shouts questions at her. She rarely responds, opting instead to ignore them, not even glancing in their direction. Clinton has largely closed herself off from media questions in the first month of her campaign. Her refusal to take questions stands in stark contrast to virtually all other candidates in both parties, who routinely wade into a pack of reporters after events, often fielding more questions in one event than Clinton has so far in her entire campaign. They...

    It has taken five-and-a-half years to learn that the Obama administration has been censoring White House print pool reportsóand that the media has quietly acquiesced until now. The Washington Postís Paul Farhi reported Tuesday evening that the Obama administration has abused its role as distributor for the print pool reports by exercising prior restraint on the reports. Farhi cites numerous instances where the Obama press office refused to release pool reports until changes demanded by Obama operatives were made. Farhi reports several examples of reporters acquiescing to Obamaís censorship of the media. Farhi reports on the Washington Post caving twice...

    Just a couple things since you brought up football. A couple things about the NFL. You know, Goodell had his press conference on Friday, and do you know what we learned, by the way? We learned that the sports Drive-Bys know how to conduct a press conference. The news guys have forgotten how, since Obama became president. The sports guys know how to do it. The sports guys want Goodell's scalp. I'm telling you, it's amazing. I have been listening to some of these sports guys. I have been reading some of these sports Drive-Bys. Even some of the former...

    Ahead of President Obamaís annual picnic with members of Congress, the White House prohibited television cameras and photographer access to the event. Only allowing print pool reporters were allowed to cover Obamaís speech. That annoyed White House reporters including ABC News reporter Jon Karl, who pointed out that it was a change from yearís past. ďIn a break w/ past practice, the WH is prohibiting TV & photo coverage of today's Congressional picnic at the White House,Ē he noted on Twitter.

    Sunday on NBCīs "Meet The Press," host Chuck Todd took President Barack Obama to task for the optics of going golfing moments after his statement on ISIS beheading journalist James Foley. Obama complained during his vacations he would "love" not to be followed by the press. ďYou know, it is always a challenge when youíre supposed to be on vacation, because youíre followed everywhere, part of what I would love is a vacation from the press," Obama said. The president did take some responsibility saying, ďBut thereís no doubt that after having talked to the families, where it was hard...

    On his debut as NBC 'Meet the Press' host 9/7/2014, Chuck Todd grills President Obama: - Are you preparing the country to go back to war? - You realize you're giving that speech (Wednesday) the day before the 13th anniversary of 9/11. - ISIS is not a JV team. Was that bad intelligence or your misjudgment? - You've ruled out boots on the ground. And I'm curious, have you only ruled them out simply for domestic political reasons? Or is there another reason you've ruled out American boots on the ground? Because your own-- your own guys have said, "You...

    Call it the Ebola of Journalism. And its spreading -- to Time and CNN. The cover of the September 1, 2014 issue of Time could not be more explicit. Showing a dramatic image of a black man on his knees, hands raised with the cover bearing the title "The Tragedy of Ferguson," it was written by David Von Drehle and Alex Altman in the tones of the standard liberal ďI-told-you-soĒ thinking on race . It included the line: ďWeíve been here beforeóand failed to learn the lessons.Ē When it came to the mess that is ObamaCare? There was this Time...

    One gets the impression that America’s broad support for Israel’s mission in Gaza over that of Hamas militants, support reflected in policy in Washington, is evolving into an obsession for members of the press. In fact, it seems that the more stubbornly Americans cling to their support for their country’s democratic ally in the Middle East, the more frenetic and scolding the media’s tone has become while covering the conflict. Over a month into the current crisis, a NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll found that a significant plurality continue to sympathize with Israel over Palestinians. 43 percent of Americans said...
