    Nikki Haley, President Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, said Thursday that The New York Times knew she had not been involved in the purchase of expensive curtains for her New York residence when it printed a story implying she did. "They knew the facts and they released the story anyway," Haley told Fox News' "The Story." "I hadn't even taken the job when these curtains were picked out," she said. "We told the reporters that these were the facts." The Times issued an editor's note at the top of its piece, which was originally titled "Nikki Haley's View of...
  • Want to help prevent rape? Withdraw Kavanaugh’s nomination.

    Want to help prevent rape? Withdraw Kavanaugh’s nomination . If we care about all the sexual assaults that haven’t yet occurred, we must treat attempted rape as disqualifying for a Supreme Court justice. By Sandra Newman Sandra Newman has written widely about sexual assault and is the author of several books, including the forthcoming novel The Heavens. September 20 at 3:19 AM When Christine Blasey Ford came forward with allegations that Brett Kavanaugh tried to rape her at a party when he was 17, it was no surprise that Republicans were quick to deny it ever happened. What was surprising,...
  • Chuck Todd Can’t See It’s The Media’s Fault Americans Don’t Trust Them

    Chuck Todd’s recent article in The Atlantic was an insult to the intelligence of those of us who are ordinary voters and avid media consumers. He blames conservative media and their stars for the unprecedented distrust and credibility problems mainstream media outlets face. That’s right: he thinks millions of Americans loathe and distrust the national press solely because Fox News, Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity regularly—and falsely, in his opinion—tell their viewers about the bias in national media. He is being either clueless or dishonest, and it might be a bit of both. Let me explain some of the many...

    The Washington Post keeps insisting that President Trump lies all the time. When it's the Bezos/Baron social justice tabloid that can't stop lying. Tump suggests protesting should be illegal — Washington Post - Felicia Somnez President Trump has long derided the mainstream media as the “enemy of the people” and lashed out at NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem. On Tuesday, he took his attacks on free speech one step further, Nope. If I were in the fact checking business, this would be deemed highly misleading to extremely deceptive.

    EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — The White House Correspondents' Association says a volunteer member of President Donald Trump's advance team who blocked a photojournalist's camera as he tried to take a photo of a protester during a campaign rally in Indiana has been taken off the road. Olivier Knox, the association's president, says Trump's campaign told him the actions were those of an "inexperienced volunteer, who understands that he acted in error." Knox says the campaign "promises that this will not happen again."(continued)
  • Lanny Davis Says He Was A Source For CNN’s Trump Tower Story

    Attorney Lanny Davis says he was an anonymous source in a July CNN story that reported his client, Michael Cohen, had privately claimed that President Trump had advance knowledge of the infamous Trump Tower meeting between his son and Russians — contradicting Davis's own words on CNN's air last week. In the story, Cohen was reported to claim he had personally witnessed Donald Trump Jr. informing then-candidate Trump about the June 2016 meeting. Such a claim from Cohen would directly contradict Trump’s statements about his knowledge of the meeting, where Russians were set to offer dirt on Hillary Clinton. CNN’s...

    Reporters foolishly act like liberal political activists. Donald Trump has long demonstrated a knack for getting his political opponents to make fools of themselves. Sen. Marco Rubio learned this the hard way on the 2016 campaign trail when he tried to out-Trump Mr. Trump. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and former CIA chief John Brennan got caught in the trap last week. Mr. Cuomo took issue with Mr. Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” telling an audience full of Democrats that “we’re not going to make America great again—it was never that great.” The audience booed. Mr. Cuomo was...

    A couple of weeks back, I had the utter pleasure of diving in Cayman Islands with former Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines who had suffered amputations and spinal cord injuries. I made a promise to myself, which I kept, to not turn on the TV while I was there, nor did I turn on a computer. However, I could not help but see the news updates off my iPhone. Of course, upon returning to the states last weekend, I was inundated with all the hysteria over the “separations” of, what I have read, between 1,800-2,300 illegal immigrant children. This has...

    A reporter at a Massachusetts-based newspaper resigned Friday after falsely claiming in a tweet Thursday that the man who killed five employees at the Capital Gazzete newspaper left a “Make America Great Again” hat at the crime scene. “Shooter who killed 4 people at Annapolis newspaper dropped his #MAGA hat on newsroom floor before opening fire,” Conor Berry, a reporter at The Republican in Springfield, Mass., wrote in a now-deleted tweet. Berry, who covered politics and crime for The Republican, apologized for the “stupid” and “regrettable” tweet Friday, adding that it made his 21-year career as a journalist come to...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/22/2018 | Monica Showalter
    We already know it was going on with the manufactured crisis over child separations of people caught breaking U.S. law by entering the country illegally. The policies were Democrat policies, yet Democrats and Jeb Bush-style #NeverTrumps were decrying it as a product of President Trump's heartlessness, separating parents from children entering illegally as families, in order to keep the children out of their parents' jail. Yet they were President Obama's and President Bush's and President Clinton's policies, dating to 1997. The press pounded the drumbeat nonstop for days that President Trump was heartless and evil - the same way they...

    A viral photo that appeared to depict a child detained at the border over his immigration status was actually taken at a protest, according to fact-checkers. The image was shared by social media users like journalist and filmmaker Jose Antonio Vargas, who said in the caption: "This is what happens when a government believes people are 'illegal.' Kids in cages." However, fact-checking websites Snopes and PolitiFact found other pictures of the boy wearing the same clothes at a demonstration on June 10 organized by the Brown Berets de Cemanahuac's Texas chapter in Dallas. Leroy Pena, who took the image, told...

    We the media have “fact-checked” President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet—and he’s certainly given us plenty to write about. That’s probably why it’s so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and “lies.” But as self-appointed arbiters of truth, we’ve largely excused our own unprecedented string of fact-challenged reporting. The truth is, formerly well-respected, top news organizations are making repeat, unforced errors in numbers that were unheard of just a couple of years ago. Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump’s claims are “lies” when they are matters of opinion,...

    The New York Times editorial board claims “at least 700 mass shootings” occurred over the least two years and 96 people are killed by firearms every day. The column was written to correspond with the second anniversary of the June 12, 2016, shooting at the gun-free Orlando Pulse nightclub. The gunman in that attack had a “statewide firearms license” enabling him to serve as an armed security guard and he passed a background check for the handgun and rifle he carried on the night of his attack. Moreover, he passed a waiting a period for the handgun.

    SINGAPORE (Reuters) - In their first moments of meeting each other, U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un both sought to project a sense of command but displayed some anxiety at the start of their high-stakes summit in Singapore. Body language experts said that in the 13 seconds or so the U.S. president held on to the hand of Kim for the first time, he projected his usual dominance by reaching out first, and patting the North Korean leader's shoulder. Not to be outdone, Kim firmly pumped Trump's hand, looking him straight in the eye for...

    Journalism got a lot smaller last week. The media lost two of their biggest names – author and journalist Tom Wolfe and Interview Magazine. Wolfe, who wrote “The Right Stuff,” spent decades making people appear larger than life. Interview, founded by pop culture icon Andy Warhol, used its larger-than-normal format to make its subjects grow in stature. The industry is diminished, left with its war against President Trump as journalists battle over whether an informant sent to spy on the Trump campaign is actually a “spy.” That is part of their larger anti-Trump crusade, but it’s also tied to how...

      Liberal media darling and porn star Stormy Daniels admitted in a tweet this past week that she is not paying for her attorney fees. If she’s not, then who is? The porn star who the MSM will not stop talking about due to her statements that she slept with President Trump a dozen years ago admitted this past week that she is not paying for her attorney fees. Daniels reportedly signed a document stating she did not have sex with citizen Donald Trump a dozen years ago.  Then Daniels came out and said that she did have sex...

    NEW YORK — Eight months before the company that owns the National Enquirer paid $150,000 to a former Playboy Playmate who claimed she’d had an affair with Donald Trump, the tabloid’s parent made a $30,000 payment to a less famous individual: a former doorman at one of the real estate mogul’s New York City buildings. As it did with the ex-Playmate, the Enquirer signed the ex-doorman to a contract that effectively prevented him from going public with a juicy tale that might hurt Trump’s campaign for president. The payout to the former Playmate, Karen McDougal, stayed a secret until the...

    If this is the kind of lawyer Harvard is turning out, it could be time to close up shop in Cambridge . . . CNN legal analyst and Harvard Law alum Areva Martin argued this morning that Stormy Daniels is not bound by her agreement with Michael Cohen not to discuss her alleged affair with Donald Trump, because Trump, per his statement of yesterday, was unaware that Cohen had paid Stormy $130,000. Martin’s reasoning was so transparently flawed that co-host Alisyn Camerota had no trouble demolishing it: Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Democrats across the country were getting a collective thrill up their leg about the coming “blue wave” that was about to break over Texas. Some early-voting numbers had Dems all excited. And then the election happened. And it’s true that a political party set a Texas record yesterday for the number of voters going to the polls in a primary. Just one teensy little problem for Texas Dems: it was the Republican party. Democrats turned out in solid-but-not-record-breaking numbers. Overall, Republicans swamped Dem turnout by about half-a-million votes. Republican votes cast beat Dem votes by a ratio of 60/40. On...
