  • Negative Press Coverage of Trump Quantified

    I thought the press coverage of President Trump was slanted but I didn’t think it was this bad. The obvious bias has now been quantified in new research done by Pew Research Center looking into the negative stories on the president. Over Trump’s first 100 days in office, 24 different media organizations found that reporting on the president has been the most negative of any other president who has been in office over the past 25 years. Research further revealed that only 5 percent of the media’s reporting during this period was positive while 62 percent was negative and 33...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – WDRB News is fighting what its attorney calls a “clearly illegal“ search warrant obtained by Louisville Metro Police that would allow officers to comb through the station’s newsroom and access computers, notes and unpublished material gathered for a recent news story about a suspect in a police shooting. Jon Fleischaker, an attorney representing WDRB, said it is the first time he has seen such an order in at least the last 40 years, when federal law prohibited law enforcement agencies from serving search warrants on news organizations except in extremely rare cases. “There are very serious...
  • U.N. Human Rights Chief Condemns Trump’s Attacks on Media

    GENEVA — The United Nations human rights chief said on Wednesday that President Trump’s repeated denunciations of some media outlets as “fake news” could amount to incitement to violence and had potentially dangerous consequences outside the United States. The rebuke by Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, the high commissioner for human rights, at a news conference in Geneva was an unusually forceful criticism of a head of state by a United Nations official. Mr. al-Hussein was reacting to Mr. Trump’s recent comments at a rally in Phoenix during which he spoke of “crooked media deceptions” in reports of the violent clashes at...

  • The real story of that Lynch-Clinton tarmac meeting gets even stranger

    When we last checked in on newly released information regarding that infamous tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton, we learned that the media wasn’t terribly interested in discussing the matter any more than absolutely necessary. But as reporters continue to dig through the trove of Justice Department emails obtained by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, we find out that there were some people who were very interested in talking. The people in question would be Lynch’s staff and they were having a flurry of discussions with...
  • The press can be handled in a professional manner

    The press can be dealt with in a professional manner. You need someone who has been in the business to do it. That person would understand inside out how the system works and why. Also, that individual would know how to address a journalist, good or bad. Another key point is to separate them from each other and stop the hyena vs lion dynamic. One-on-one interviews with selected reps from each outlet would be a good start. In a school classroom, you do not get into a major verbal conflict with one student in front of all of the rest....

    American Thinker ^ | 07/06/2017 | Janice Shaw Crouse
    George W. Bush is a gentleman and his father, George H.W. is too, even more so. Both were attacked maliciously and aggressively by the media and by their political opponents. I admired the civility of both presidents who were above the fray. But their presidencies suffered defeats because they were unwilling to fight fire with fire. Donald J. Trump is a different man, a different politician and a different president. Trump is a street fighter. He is going to be aggressive and cunning when politicians and the media come after him. President Trump is naturally combative, having honed his skills...

    There is a reason why the mainstream news media and the Democratic Party are in an uproar: They’ve been left out of the political equation by a player who understands the game better than they do. And that player is President Trump, who has conducted a masterful war against his media foes over the last 72 hours, launching a series of strategic tweets that deemed the hostile press not only “fake” but “fraudulent.” The president himself declared that he was the victor to his 31 million Twitter followers, adding one more telling tweet that summarizes his very effective skill set:...
  • Reporters Committee condemns President Trump's statement of violence against the press

    07/02/2017 4:49:31 PM PDT · by Beave Meister · 43 replies
    On Sunday, President Donald Trump made a public statement on Twitter that glorified physical violence against members of the press. Bruce Brown, executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, made the following statement: "We condemn the president's threat of physical violence against journalists. This tweet is beneath the office of the presidency. Sadly, it is not beneath this president. "No one should be threatened with physical harm for doing their jobs. Journalists are your neighbors, they're your friends. Journalists perform a critical function in our society, one the Founding Fathers felt was so necessary that they...

    Townhall.com ^ | June 30, 2017 | Courtney O'Brian
    The New York Times has issued a correction four days too late for its flap of a Russia story Monday. In a piece entitled, "Trump's Deflections and Denials on Russia Frustrate Even His Allies," the editors published some inaccuracies. In particular, the writers suggested that 17 intelligence agencies had signed off on a report noting that Russia had interfered in the 2016 presidential election. In reality, only four had come to that conclusion.In fact, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told a Senate Judiciary subcommittee exactly that last month. "Only three agencies" were directly involved in the assessment, "plus...

    With mainstream media reporters telling their audiences that the end is nigh over the Trump White House decision to hold fewer press briefings on camera, few are mentioning that the move is not without precedent — with President Bill Clinton’s White House turning off the cameras in the ’90s because they weren’t “necessary.” The Trump administration has been reducing the number of press briefings available to cameras in recent weeks, triggering horror from many in anti-Trump press outlets, particularly those with a reputation for showboating. CNN Senior White House reporter Jim Acosta even tried to push his own hashtag: #whyarethecamerasoff...

    Watching today's constant battle between the White House and the press is tiresome for spectators and probably even more exhausting for those who are involved in the day to day back and forth. While it might drive ratings, it might not be of much use to anyone other than the advertisers and the networks. During the 2012 Republican presidential primary, I served as a Senior Advisor and media surrogate for Newt Gingrich (my father). During that time, I talked often to James Farwell, author of "Persuasion and Power: The Art of Strategic Communication" for his advice regarding press relations. Farwell,...

    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...

    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. http://thehill.com/homenews/media/318514-trump-admin-seen-as-more-truthful-than-news-media-poll 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...
