    Our Guests: Daily Caller investigative reporter, Luke Rosiak & Former deep-cover FBI Special Agent, John Ligato This Week: The mainstream media continues its obsession on Russia while ignoring a story of espionage and possible theft has been building for years. Could it be they are providing cover for their Democrat allies? We go where the mainstream media doesn't want us to and investigate the real story behind how three Muslim brothers and two of their wives have been able to skirt security clearance protocols while obtaining the most sensitive IT material from oversight Congressional committees. Sensitive material that was supposed...

    Andy Ngo reported on a Muslim student admitting that his religion mandated death for those who leave it, and was summarily dismissed from his position at the Vanguard, the campus newspaper. No one at PSU seems particularly concerned with the plight of those who leave Islam in Muslim countries, but those who call attention to this fact are “predatory” and “reckless.” This is modern academia: truths that deviate from the Leftist line are ruthlessly suppressed. “Student Shares Video Critical Of Islam, Gets Fired From College Newspaper,” by Rob Shimshock, Daily Caller, May 12/2017: "An Oregon college student lost his job...

    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...
  • Leftists Trying To SHUT OUT Conservative Media From Covering Presidential Elections

    Examiner via IJR.com via The Federalist Pages Project ^ | October 2,2016 | Examiner via IJR.com via Robert Gehl
    In a ruling clearly aimed at Fox News and other conservative media, the Federal Elections Commission is trying to ban media outlets with any foreign ownership from covering presidential races or even giving endorsements. A top Democrat on the evenly-split split board proposed that the group begin the process of prohibiting companies with foreign ownership as small as 5 percent from “funding expenditures, independent expenditures, or electioneering communications.” If approved, the plan would cover Fox News, The Wall Street Journal – and as collateral damage, the New York Times, from participating in the elections process by covering or endorsing candidates,...

    Iraqi officials have reportedly revoked the broadcaster's license, marking the third time Al Jazeera has been banned in Iraq. The news organization says it was told it had violated codes of conduct and other rules. The Qatar-based news organization on Wednesday said its bureau in Baghdad had been shut down after the government accused it of violating laws. According to the pan-Arab broadcaster, Iraq's Communications and Media Commission (CMC) accused the company of "violations of the official codes of conduct and broadcasting rules and regulations." Those rules and regulations were issued in 2014 to regulate media coverage of the "war...

    After canceling a Friday rally in Chicago due to potential violence, Donald Trump lost out on two major primary contests on Saturday, giving a much-needed boost to his competitors Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. On Saturday, Rubio – who is currently in third place in the GOP race – was declared the winner of the Washington D.C. caucus, nabbing the district's 10 delegates all for himself. Meanwhile, Cruz won nine on Wyoming's 11 delegates, with Trump and Rubio each earning one delegate each. The state's 14 other delegates will be elected at the April 16 state convention. While Trump is...

    The Democrat-Media Complex have just told us what they fear the most as an issue in the 2016 election: President Obama’s plan to “fundamentally transform” suburbia (as explained today by Jeannie DeAngelis). This is an issue that literally hits voters where they live, by using the denial of federal funding to override local control and force communities to provide low-income housing distributed to approved minority groups. Investor’s Business Daily reports that all three broadcast networks ignored the story that affects their viewers more directly than almost any other issue. The Big Three news networks all punted on covering one of...

    President Obama is taking heat for calling for changes in "how the media reports," during an anti-poverty event where he also took a swipe at Fox News. At the Georgetown University discussion on Tuesday, Obama lamented how, sometimes, the poor are cast as "sponges" who don't want to work. "I have to say that if you watch Fox News on a regular basis, it is a constant menu -- they will find folks who make me mad," Obama said. "I don't know where they find them. They're like, I don't want to work, I just want a free Obama phone...

    The Associated Press has a big social media problem. A string of poorly worded and misleading tweets from that news organization have begun to seriously damage that institution’s coveted brand as an apolitical and trusted reporting outlet. The series of terrible tweets from the AP began on July 22 when the organization rushed to promote a breaking story regarding the American intelligence community’s formal assessment of the parties involved in the July 17 attack on Malaysian Airlines Flight 17.

    As the year ends, I see that others have already conscientiously compiled lists of the most underreported and misreported stories of the year, with some even breaking matters down between foreign and domestic. With that task addressed, I thought it would be worthwhile to compile a far from comprehensive list of ten of the more noteworthy techniques which those who pretend to be loyal to the tenets of journalism employed during 2013 to deceive, misinform, misdirect and smear. 1. Pretend that “no one” is saying something, when they really are. Carol Costello of CNN claimed in January that “no one...

Instead, it's creating a Google Earth on every financial transaction.

    For more than a year, New York state has maintained a tip line allowing people to report illegal gun owners and collect a $500 reward. CBS-6 news reported the existence of the tip line on Wednesday. It was previously a “well-kept secret” that received little promotion from state officials or fanfare in the media, according to the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association. A February 2012 press release from Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s office first publicly announced the tip line, saying it was designed to “encourage citizens to report illegal firearm possession.”

    After accusing Breitbart News of "terrible reporting" on the intrigue surrounding John Boehner's re-election as Speaker of the House, Politico ran a detailed article repeating most of the same facts found in our reporting. When editors proofed Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan's article titled "Conservatives rebel against Boehner" there must have been a sense of déjà vu, as point after point reported at Breitbart was re-confirmed, this time with the stamp of approval from the Beltway Journo-list's favorite rag. Indeed, Sherman himself must have been a bit chagrined after engaging in a public back-and-forth on Twitter with his Politico colleague...

    ....Whatever lessons the Democrats take from Charlotte, whatever it did for the president or for the ambitious senators and governors who stalked delegate breakfasts and whispered “2016,” this is a fact: The convention was successfully trolled. I don’t use troll in the pejorative sense. Actually, I may be trying to craft a neutral meaning of troll where none previously existed. The term, in its modern Internet usage, refers to people who want to start fights online to bring the universe into an argument on their terms. It comes not from Grimm literature, but from a fishing technique in which multiple...

    AFP ^ | 7/11/2012 | Rob Lever, or a computer-generated facsimile thereof
    The new reporter on the US media scene takes no coffee breaks, churns out articles at lightning speed, and has no pension plan. That's because the reporter is not a person, but a computer algorithm, honed to translate raw data such as corporate earnings reports and previews or sports statistics into readable prose. Algorithms are producing a growing number of articles for newspapers and websites, such as this one produced by Narrative Science: "Wall Street is high on Wells Fargo, expecting it to report earnings that are up 15.7 percent from a year ago when it reports its second quarter...

    BEIJING (AP) — China told foreign embassies Tuesday to stop publishing their own reports on air quality in the country, escalating its objections to a popular U.S. Embassy Twitter feed that tracks pollution in smoggy Beijing. Only the Chinese government is authorized to monitor and publish air quality information and data from other sources may not be standardized or rigorous, Wu Xiaoqing, a vice environmental minister, told reporters. China has long taken issue with the U.S. Embassy's postings of hourly readings of Beijing's air quality on a Twitter feed with more than 19,000 followers since 2008. But its past objections...

NEVER trust an article that does not contain the 5Ws of Journalism. For those not in the know, they are right up there in the headline: Who, What, When, Where and Why. If I could say another, it is to barrage the publisher of any article with email/letters and public scorn until their reportage conforms to all five of...
