  • Release The Memo: What's the Conspiracy Behind the Right-Wing Meme?(Barf alert and a LOL)

    01/19/2018 2:23:53 PM PST · by janetjanet998 · 18 replies
    Republicans claim a secret document reveals a Hillary Clinton plot "worse than Watergate" – and they're getting a big boost from Russian bots On a day like Friday, with a shutdown looming and DACA in the balance and Chuck Schumer huddling with President Trump in the White House, you might logically expect right-wing Twitter to be blowing up – but not, necessarily, with the seemingly unaccountable hashtag that's dominated the platform since Thursday evening: #ReleaseTheMemo. But then again, you might not logically expect American conservatives to work in concert with Russian state propagandists and Twitter bots – though by now,...

    President Trump is taking heat from liberal media for — reportedly — referring to some countries as “s***holes” — but, when Obama publicly called Republican rival Mitt Romney a “bulls****er” in 2012, Rolling Stone sprang to his defense. In its “A Brief History of Presidential Profanity,” Rolling Stone began by mocking the outrage at Obama’s vulgarity:“When President Obama called Mitt Romney a "bulls****er" in the pages of Rolling Stone earlier this year, it set off a brief firestorm. Defenders of the Republican candidate were shocked — shocked! — that the man holding the highest office in the land would resort...

    Rose McGowan, who openly criticized the call for a red carpet black-out in the weeks leading up to the awards show, took to Twitter Sunday to reiterate her stance after Italian actress Asia Argento voiced her support for McGowan. "No one should forget that you were the first one who broke the silence," Argento tweeted at the former Charmed actress. "Anyone who tries to diminish your work is a troll and an enemy of the movement. You gave me the courage to speak out. I am on your side until I die." McGowan doubled down on her disdain for the...

    It's gonna happen! Paul Manafort has been indicted and...and that means that Donald Trump will soon be leaving office! I'm soooo excited that I am already tripping all over myself!!! That pretty much sums up the attitude of Rolling Stone writer Bob Dreyfuss who, upon hearing the news about Paul Manafort's indictment, just couldn't contain himself over the fantasy that this will lead to a quick exit, via resignation or impeachment, of President Donald Trump from office. Here is Dreyfuss in today's Rolling Stone sounding positively orgasmic over the fantasy that Manafort's indictment will inevitably lead to Trump's quick exit in...

  • Jann Wenner really blew it with Rolling Stone [No Buyers]

    Jann Wenner has landed between a rock and a hard place as he struggles to sell Rolling Stone. The 71-year-old publishing magnate will pay dearly for clinging to the rock-and-roll magazine he founded 50 years ago, sources told The Post, as prospective buyers have evaporated along with music fans’ habit of buying glossy print titles at newsstands. “Jann knows he made his mark on American culture already and he is a realist,” said author Joe Hagan, whose biography on Wenner, titled “Sticky Fingers,” is set to hit next month from Random House. “The landscape has changed and he was not...
  • Rolling Stone, Once a Counterculture Bible, Will Be Put Up for Sale

    NYT ^ | 9/17/17 | SYDNEY EMBER
    From a loft in San Francisco in 1967, a 21-year-old named Jann S. Wenner started a magazine that would become the counterculture bible for baby boomers. Rolling Stone defined cool, cultivated literary icons and produced star-making covers that were such coveted real estate they inspired a song.But the headwinds buffeting the publishing industry, and some costly strategic missteps, have steadily taken a financial toll on Rolling Stone, and a botched story three years ago about an unproven gang rape at the University of Virginia badly bruised the magazine’s journalistic reputation. And so, after a half-century reign that propelled him into...

    As you see in the very title of their paean to junior senator from New York (D-of course), How Kirsten Gillibrand Is Outsmarting Donald Trump, they meant it to be entirely adulatory. However, the article's author, Tessa Stuart, was so blinded in admiration for her subject that she failed to notice that she accidentally revealed Gillibrand's utter duplicity.Perhaps Stuart was so blinded by Gillibrand's "brilliance" that it allowed a very ugly truth to slip out. Let us first jump in when Stuart was in the process of pouring out love for Gillibrand that kept oozing right up to the moment...

    Rolling Stone Promotes ‘Professional Cuddling’ as Way of ‘Coping’ With Trump By Scott Whitlock | August 4, 2017 3:45 PM EDT How unhinged are some media outlets in responding to the election of Donald Trump? Rolling Stone's website on Friday promoted “professional cuddling” as a reaction to those struggling to “cope.” Writer Allie Voipe highlighted this presumably blue state response: “Since November – and the election of Donald Trump – professional cuddling services have seen a spike in client interest.” According to Adam Lippin, the CEO of Cuddlist, “The holiday season was the first time that since Trump won the...

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the cover of its latest issue and asks: "Why Can't He Be Our President?" Perhaps recognizing that only American-born U.S. citizens can become president, the magazine takes a different tack on its website. There its headline for the article posted Wednesday is: "Justin Trudeau: Is the Canadian Prime Minister the Free World's Best Hope?" Trudeau is pictured with his shirt sleeves rolled up perched on the edge of a desk. In the profile, writer Stephen Rodrick outlines stark contrasts between Trudeau's liberal views on health care, marijuana legalization and environmental policies...

    Could someone remind me how old President Donald Trump was at the time of the real life evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940? Oh, he still wouldn't be born for another six years? Really? However, this did not prevent Rolling Stone movie reviewer Peter Travers from invoking his name in a negative way from out of nowhere in the middle of a review of what looks to be an outstanding film, "Dunkirk." First let us look at the positive aspect of Travers' review when he focused strictly on the movie before taking his cheap shot at Trump. Before he came to...

    So much for taking America’s “fake news” problem seriously. Ever since Donald Trump was elected president, there’s been an abundance of hand-wringing over the “fake news” that supposedly is rampant on social media. Yet missing has been any kind of serious searching among the mainstream media about whether it could learn any lessons from this election—and whether reporters and editors are holding themselves accountable to their supposed values of objectivity and rigorous reporting. And a new “study” presents Exhibit A as to why the mainstream media should reconsider its own practices.

    A Rolling Stone interview feature with Rachel Maddow that was published Wednesday touted the MSNBC host as the "most trusted name in news." "Rachel Maddow: The Rolling Stone Interview," written by Janet Reitman, tells the story of how "America's wonkiest anchor cut through the chaos of the Trump administration and became the most trusted name in news." The profile discussed Maddow's thoughts on President Donald Trump's administration, the 2016 presidential election, how she views the media, and how she became the "most trusted name in news." But Maddow, who said she is "a liberal for sure," does not see herself...

    Rolling Stone magazine settled a University of Virginia administrator's lawsuit over its discredited story about a rape on campus, but its legal fights over the botched article aren't over. Attorneys for Rolling Stone and Nicole Eramo announced this week that they reached a confidential settlement over the 2014 story "A Rape on Campus," putting an end to the lengthy case stemming from the now-debunked claims of a woman identified only as "Jackie." "We are delighted that this dispute is now behind us, as it allows Nicole to move on and focus on doing what she does best, which is supporting...

    NewsBusters ^ | April 3, 2017 | P.J. Gladnick
    A good way to judge how the fake news story about the supposed collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and the Russians is holding up is to take a look at how liberal but skeptical reporter Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone is covering it. Almost a month ago on March 8, Taibbi was warning Democrats and the mainstream media to be very wary of this dubious story.  Since nothing has been uncovered since then to lend a shred of credibility to this fake news story, Taibbi has progressed to openly mocking those who continue, against all evidence, to desperately hang...

    Duck Dynasty was a modern-day version of Mayberry - a television show that celebrated faith and family and ducks. And now the show has ended - the duck blind is closed. It was back in 2012 that A&E introduced the nation to the owners of Duck Commander – the Robertson Family, of West Monroe, Louisiana. t was only a matter of time before Phil and Miss Kay and Uncle Si and Willie became some of the most popular stars in reality television show history. Among all of us gun-toting, Bible-clinging, Deplorables – the Robertson’s were beloved. Each week they welcomed...
  • North Carolina State Senator Who Blamed Trump for JCC Threats Goes Silent

    NewsBusters ^ | March 5, 2017 | P.J. Gladnick
    Rolling Stone published a February 28 story which featured North Carolina state senator Jeff Jackson (D) who vociferously blamed President Trump for the Jewish community center bomb threats around the nation. Bad timing for him because just three days later, on Friday, a suspect was arrested for the JCC threats. Very inconveniently for Jackson and many liberals the suspect, Juan Thompson, turned out to be an anti-Trump leftist. So what was the reaction of Jackson and the Rolling Stone? Contrition? An apology? Naw. Complete silence.  Like much of the rest of the mainstream media as pointed out by Newsbusters' Brad Wilmouth,...

    What? I’ve never been much of a fan, so this affects me about as much as a change in the start of the soccer season, which is to say not at all. I think Rob has a bit more appreciation for their musical stylings, so he’s free to weigh in and tell me I’m a tasteless clod if he likes. (It wouldn’t be the first time.) But didn’t Bono kinda sorta embrace W. a few years back for his work against AIDS in Africa? Even weathering some heat from his fellow leftists for daring to admit their bogeyman of the...

    In an extraordinary development Thursday, the Obama administration announced a series of sanctions against Russia. Thirty-five Russian nationals will be expelled from the country. President Obama issued a terse statement seeming to blame Russia for the hack of the Democratic National Committee emails. "These data theft and disclosure activities could only have been directed by the highest levels of the Russian government," he wrote. Russia at first pledged, darkly, to retaliate, then backed off. The Russian press today is even reporting that Vladimir Putin is inviting "the children of American diplomats" to "visit the Christmas tree in the Kremlin," as...
