    It’s Sunday so I offer a prayer for journalists: If you’re unfamiliar with the Dunning-Kruger Effect it states that some people are not only incompetent but their incompetence robs them of the mental ability to realize just how inept they are. Or put another way, they know not what they know not…Physics? I don’t need no stinkin’ physics!…and proceed accordingly.That seems to explain the vast majority of the journalist class. And perhaps this explains why: Journalists drink too much, are bad at managing emotions, and operate at a lower level than average, according to a new study. Excerpts: Journalists’ brains...

    One of the faux scandals to have emerged in this crazy past week was the revelation that in December, President Trump allegedly asked his deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, “Are you on my team?” Opined a trio of reporters from CNN, presumably with a straight face, “The episode is the latest to come to light portraying a President whose inquiries sometimes cross a line that presidents traditionally have tried to avoid when dealing with the Justice Department, for which a measure of independence is key.” Obama White House speechwriter Ben Rhodes was not directly referencing these reporters when he told...
  • House Intel Committee Trying to Find Out Why Fusion GPS Paid Journalists Who Reported on Russia

    Recently filed court documents revealed that Fusion GPS, the firm that produced the Trump dossier, paid three journalists who reported on Russia issues, and the House intelligence committee is trying to find out why. The payments to journalists occurred between June 2016 and February 2017 and raise questions as to whether the firm paid journalists in connection with its efforts to advance the narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. The payments were revealed in court filings by the deputy general counsel for the House intelligence committee on November 21 to the U.S. District Court for the District of...

    The role of reporters is taking on added importance in federal court battles over the infamous Russia dossier that leveled unverified charges of collusion against the Donald Trump campaign.In U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Fusion GPS, the dossier’s financier via the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign money, is fighting a House committee chairman’s bid to find out if the opposition research firm paid journalists.In U.S. District Court in Florida, a self-described dossier victim wants a judge to order the news website BuzzFeed, which published the dossier in full, to disclose who gave it to them.The...

    As Twitchy has reported, there hasn’t been much in the headlines about a story broken by The Hill on Tuesday that essentially confirmed something Donald Trump suggested throughout his campaign; that is, Russian nuclear officials routed millions to the Clintons’ charitable foundation and ended up capturing 20 percent of America’s uranium supply during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.The Hill reported: Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes...

    WEST NEWTON, PA -- There used to be 324 newspapers in the state of Pennsylvania. Today, there are about 60, give or take a few. The Pennsylvania Gazette is the first one on record not just in the colony of Pennsylvania but in all of the Crown's colonies. Benjamin Franklin bought the paper with a partner in 1729, and he contributed to it, as well, mostly under aliases. Among the many firsts, the plucky paper would print the first political cartoon in America, "Join, or Die," authored by Franklin. It also printed the then-treasonous texts of the Declaration of Independence,...

    Independent Journal Review (IJR) collected a few unintentionally hilarious Twitter responses from journalists who reported being shaken by President Donald Trump’s aggressiveness in an extraordinary press conference Tuesday that was centered on questions about the weekend’s violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.Vanity Fair reporter Gabriel Sherman was actually physically ill: “I am totally rattled by that presser. Chest tight, stomach queasy. Feel sick”: Perhaps he should have his testosterone checked. It seems seriously depleted. But then, he does write for Vanity Fair. Magazine editor David Lytle tweeted his empathy for Sherman: “I vomited on election night. Today, I bawled for 20 minutes....

    Trump scolds Korean media for wreaking havoc in Oval Office By Bob Fredericks June 30, 2017 | 1:09pm | Updated President Trump doesn’t like the Korean media either after they piled into the Oval Office on Friday during his sitdown with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and crashed into a couch, damaged a table and nearly knocked over a lamp. The White House press pool, including a large contingent of Korean media, was larger than usual, and the Secret Service even had to ask the Koreans to stop running as they entered the room. But there was a lot of...
  • Just In The White House’s New Press Strategy Has Reporters Furious

    06/24/2017 11:14:58 AM PDT · by V K Lee · 45 replies
    The White House is adopting a new approach to the way that it handles press briefings with the hopes of messing with reporters, CNN reported. The approach works like this: the White House will host a public briefing one day and then cancel their briefings for the next few days, causing outrage from media outlets and their reporters. When the anger over a lack of press briefings builds up, the White House will host an off-camera briefing and continue the process all over again. Reporters have grown furious with this method as they are continually worked up into a frenzy...

    The race to fill the lone Montana House seat vacated by Rep. Ryan Zinke who was named Interior Secretary, just got a lot more interesting. Already considered too close to call by both sides, GOP candidate Gianforte was involved in an altercation with a reporter for the ultra-liberal Guardian newspaper where eyewitnesses say the tech millionaire body slammed the journalist and began to punch him.

    According to a study released Thursday by neuroscientist Dr. Tara Swart in association with the London Press Club, the highest functions of the human brain operate at a lower level in journalists than the average population. Her research titled “Study Into The Mental Resilience of Journalists,” blames journalists’ cognitive shortcomings on dehydration caused by excessive alcohol consumption along with poor diet, including higher levels of sugar and caffeine. Less than 5% of journalists drink enough — or any — water while 41% drank more than 18 alcoholic drinks per week.

    I check CNN's front page every now and then just to see what they're covering, or if they are covering anything important other than bashing Trump 24/7. The headline "Trump gets a taste for pulling the trigger" caught my eye. I was weakened by temptation due to the childish nature of the headline and decided to scan the article. Then I saw phrases/words like this: "In just the last week, the rookie commander in chief has presided over the use of some of the most powerful weaponry in the US arsenal" "he is one President who relishes ordering the use...

On Feb. 27, 2017, he went on a tweeting rampage, saying in one rant, “The @SecretService visited me looked at my tweets, questioned my politics b/c some awful white woman I date reported me. I won’t be silenced.” In another tweet that same day, he cited the commander-in-chief: “@SecretService … a disgusting nasty racist white woman, who filed a false lie against me, has threatened to kill Trump.” The woman had struck up...

    While tensions between President Trump and CNN dying down, a new scandal has erupted for the cable news network after Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro said on Sunday he wanted CNN out of the country, accusing it of spreading fake news, misrepresenting the truth and meddling in issues that are not of its concern."CNN, do not get into the affairs of Venezuelans. I want CNN well away from here. Outside of Venezuela. Do not put your nose in Venezuela," said Maduro during a political statement. Quoted by Fox News, Maduro made the comment after blaming the U.S. network of distorting...

    'Don't stand for being called or labeled 'lying' or 'crooked' or 'failing' CNN’s Christiane Amanpour called for left-wing press unity in opposition to President-elect Donald Trump during the 2016 International Press Freedom Awards on Wednesday. Accepting an award acknowledging her ostensible contributions to “press freedom,” Amanpour issued her call to arms via a prepared speech. Amanpour began with alarmism, framing Trump as a dictator-in-progress:

While most of the tweets were from ordinary members of the public, many others came from columnists and commentators. Here’s Jeb Lund, a columnist for The Guardian.

    President Barack Obama on Monday lashed out at U.S. reporters for failing to “dig deeper and to demand more” from the current crop of presidential candidates. Members of the press quickly bit back at the leader of the “most transparent” administration in U.S. history.[snip] The president challenged reporters to ask tougher questions of candidates rather than “feed the beast” with gossip and soft news. “A job well done is about more than just handing someone a microphone. It’s to probe and to question and to dig deeper and to demand more,” Obama said.

    Earlier this week, a seventh video detailing Planned Parenthood’s gruesome organ-trafficking operation was released. In it, a former procurement technician who worked with the organization described how Planned Parenthood harvested a brain from a baby boy whose heart was still beating.If you use BuzzFeed as your primary source of news, however, you’d know nothing about the story. The same goes for the video in which a top Planned Parenthood official said she needed a good price on aborted baby organs because, “I want a Lamborghini.” That little detail was also never reported. In fact, it’s been over a month...
