    If photographer Jamie Lorriman was any kind of professional, he would have known what kind of emotion the picture would evoke. Is he some kind of social justice warrior who hoped he would've triggered an Islamophobic response at the expense of a passerby? This is why responsible media-types have editing functions available like "blur" so the identities of people, even if they are on a public street, for this precise reason are protected. Blaming the reaction on a "far right" bigoted response, it could also be argued, is exactly what Lorriman wanted.

  • Washington Post Flips Out over Conservatives with WH Access:‘What’s a Legitimate News Outlet?’

    03/12/2017 3:12:32 PM PDT · by davikkm · 35 replies
    Paul Farhip, a straight-down-the-middle,, objective reporter for the extremely non-partisan, ideologically unbridled Washington Post, frets about “partisan” news outlet The Daily Signal being part of the White House press corps — quite literally stating that conservatives gaining White House access evinces a slippery slope where “extremist or racist organizations” could do the same. From the Washington Post: In an age of partisan media, the lines between “partisan” and “media” can sometimes blur. Case in point: The pool reporter covering Vice President Pence on Thursday — that is, the reporter who supplied details about Pence’s daily activities as proxy for the...

    The Young Turks ^ | 3/2/2017 | Michael Tracey
    The basic formula for every breaking Trump/Russia story is essentially as follows: 1. The New York Times or Washington Post releases an article that at first blush appears extremely damning. 2. Anti-Trump pundits and Democrats react reflexively to the news, express shrieking outrage, and proclaim that this finally proves untoward collusion between Trump and Russia — a smoking gun, at last. 3. Aggrieved former Clinton apparatchiks *connect the dots* in a manner eerily reminiscent of right-wing Glenn Beck-esque prognostication circa 2009. 4. Self-proclaimed legal experts rashly opine as to whether the new revelation entails some kind of criminally actionable offense. (Recall the...

    The former chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, John Podesta, has joined The Washington Post as a contributing columnist, the paper announced on Thursday. Podesta, who also served as chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and a counselor to President Barack Obama, has recently written two op-eds for the Post. The first, published in December, was about the the FBI's investigation into Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee. The second, published last week, was about President Donald Trump's penchant for dismissing all criticism of himself as "fake news." The Post says Podesta's columns "will provide commentary and...

    The Washington Post has a new slogan on its homepage: "Democracy Dies in Darkness." Post spokesperson Kris Coratti told CNN that readers should expect to see more of it on other platforms of the publication. "We thought it would be a good, concise value statement that conveys who we are to the many millions of readers who have come to us for the first time over the last year," Coratti said last week. "We started with our newest readers on Snapchat, and plan to roll it out on our other platforms in the coming weeks."

    CBS White House correspondent Major Garrett wrote an op-ed for Sunday’s Washington Post imploring journalists not to skip the White House Correspondents' Dinner. The headline was "Skipping 'nerd prom' now would prove Trump right" -- that journalists hate him too strongly to sit through a dinner with him. Garrett also pushed back against the Post’s own Margaret Sullivan, who argued that it would be appropriate to cancel the event altogether because the press should not be Mr. Trump’s “prom date.” "But no self-respecting White House reporter has ever been a president’s prom date, and the dinner isn’t a date at...

    Fake news. It was the term enthusiastically embraced by the mainstream media in the wake of the general election as an excuse to explain why Hillary Clinton lost. Unfortunately, that same term quickly boomeranged on them since skeptics pointed out that the MSM has used massive doses of fake news over the years to promote liberal causes including Hillary's career. And now that the "fake news" term has turned toxic for the left, they want to drop it entirely. Case in point is Sunday's complaint by Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan.

    In the past six weeks, the Washington Post published two blockbuster stories about the Russian threat that went viral: one on how Russia is behind a massive explosion of “fake news,” the other on how it invaded the U.S. electric grid. Both articles were fundamentally false. Each now bears a humiliating editor’s note grudgingly acknowledging that the core claims of the story were fiction: The first note was posted a full two weeks later to the top of the original article; the other was buried the following day at the bottom. The second story on the electric grid turned out to be far worse...

For him, the soup signified an escape from the poverty and deprivation he has experienced for more than two years. “We were very hungry,” said Oritz, who moved in November. “There was no meat, no sugar, no pasta.” Venezuela’s economic crisis is so severe that citizens must wait in lines for hours at grocery stores to buy basic staples, or pay exorbitant prices on the black market.

    President-elect Donald Trump probably will not often communicate with the nation via traditional press conferences. Nor will Trump likely field many questions from New York/Washington journalists. What we know as "the media" never imagined a Trump victory. It has become unhinged at the reality of a Trump presidency. No wonder the fading establishment media is now distrusted by a majority of the public, according to Gallup -- and becoming irrelevant even among progressives. Once upon a time in the 1960s, all the iconic news anchors, from Walter Cronkite to David Brinkley, were liberal. But they at least hid their inherent...

    In the coming film adaptation of “The Shack,” a fictional book by William P. Young about a father’s path to renewed faith and healing after his young daughter’s murder, the character of God — as depicted in the novel — is portrayed as a curvy, maternal black woman. And just as the book earned widespread notoriety and scathing critiques nearly a decade ago, the film is garnering its own praise and condemnation. At issue is Young’s characterization of the Holy Trinity, seen through the eyes of the story’s main character, who on the four-year anniversary of his daughter’s brutal killing...

    Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) haven't agreed on much during this presidential campaign. In fact, Ryan has disagreed with the Republican nominee about once a week since he reluctantly endorsed Trump in June. But perhaps nowhere do the two men diverge more clearly than on Russia. Trump thinks having a relationship with Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, could be a "wonderful thing." In a military-focused forum hosted by NBC on Wednesday, Trump even defended Putin from reports that his country is trying to influence or disrupt the U.S. election.

That reason is embodied in both the person (and the “journalism”) of one Jonathan Capehart, homosexual activist, Washington Post mercenary-hack and editorial board member. Capehart is a liar and, by extension, so is the Washington Post.Now, when I say that Capehart is a liar, I don’t mean it in the pejorative sense. It’s not an ad hominem attack. It’s a fact, supported by the overwhelming weight of the evidence. In the journalism biz, a reputation for truth and accuracy is...

    Turmoil in the Republican Party escalated Wednesday as party leaders, strategists and donors voiced increased alarm about the flailing state of Donald Trump's candidacy and fears that the presidential nominee was damaging the party with an extraordinary week of self-inflicted mistakes, gratuitous attacks and missed opportunities. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus was described as "very frustrated" with and deeply disturbed by Trump's behavior over the past week, having run out of excuses to make on the nominee’s behalf to donors and other party leaders, according to multiple people familiar with the events. Meanwhile, Trump's top campaign advisers are struggling...

    The Washington Post's op-ed webpage pulled out all the stops Tuesday in a bid to make sure readers know they should oppose Donald Trump. Six of the seven newest columns deal with Trump, including Tuesday's featured column: "There is something very wrong with Donald Trump." That was followed by: "Dear Republican leaders: It's not too late to dump Trump." After that, it was, "Is Donald Trump just plain crazy?"

    A Washington Post blog site joins the conga line of the busted. The reporter for the Washington Post’s blog, The Plum Line, is described by the news outlet thusly: “Greg Sargent writes The Plum Line blog, a reported opinion blog with a liberal slant – what you might call ‘opinionated reporting’ from the left. He joined the Post in early 2009, after stints at Talking Points Memo, New York Magazine and the New York Observer.” Wikileaks revealed, within the 74 emails where Sargent’s name in mentioned in Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails, that the substance of Sargent’s “opinionated” columns comes...
  • Washington Post to DNC: Story ‘Running on A1 Tomorrow… You All Will Be Totally Fine with It’

    The tight relationship between The Washington Post and the Democratic National Committee was borne out in emails discovered in the 20,000-deep email trove from the DNC posted on WikiLeaks. In an April 26 email to Mark Paustenbach, the DNC’s deputy communications director, the paper’s White House Bureau Chief Juliet Eilperin wrote: Subject: just FYI, the story is running on A1 tomorrow Dear Mark, I think you all will be totally fine with it. Thanks again for all your help. Best, Juliet

    Truncated title. Full title: Washington Post and DNC Hold Joint Fundraiser for Hillary Clinton – Lawyers said “illegal”, Did it Anyway LOLOL. This stuff is just too much. Carl Bernstein please call your office… Another rather Jaw-Dropping release within the latest WikiLeaks document dump of DNC emails outlines the planning for a joint fundraiser in September 2015. Apparently, The Washington Post was hosting a party. The DNC saw the opportunity to make a fundraiser out of it and sell tickets to the party to donors. However, the email chain shows the lawyers for the DNC said they can’t publish the...

    And there went out another horse that was orange: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. So just how good was Donald Trump's speech last night at the Republican convention in Cleveland? Perhaps the best way to judge that is to analyze the liberal reaction. And from reading the over the top panicked editorial from the Washington Post, Donald Trump: The candidate of the apocalypse, his speech must have been so incredibly effective as to inspire such a level...
