    CNN's Acosta calls for Trump to halt media attacks By Associated Press Published: 18:17 EDT, 22 October 2018 | Updated: 18:41 EDT, 22 October 2018 NEW YORK (AP) - CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta says President Donald Trump's attacks on the media must stop or there's a risk someone will get hurt. Acosta is one of the most visible members of the press corps covering Trump and a target for verbal abuse at the president's rallies. He said Monday that Trump has, in Acosta's words, "normalized and sanitized nastiness and cruelty" in an unprecedented way. The White House didn't...
  • Environmental law aims to prepare state for climate change

    QUINCY, Mass. - Gov. Charlie Baker says a new environmental infrastructure law will help make Massachusetts more resilient to climate change. The bill ceremonially signed by the governor in Quincy on Tuesday authorizes the state to borrow up to $2.4 billion for environmental projects in the coming years. About $500 million is earmarked specifically for helping communities prepare for extreme weather events that many scientists believe will become more frequent with global warming. Baker, a Republican seeking a second term in November, says Massachusetts is a "national leader" in addressing the challenges posed by climate changes.

    The Washington Post ^ | August 21, 2018 | by Phillip Bump
    A particular challenge of the fight over climate change, if not a unique one, is that the shifts accrue subtly. The climate has changed stunningly quickly in global terms but slowly in human terms, allowing us to rationalize, wave away and downplay. The issue of climate change rose to the national consciousness as polarization in U.S. politics spiked. Gallup polling shows that there’s a nearly 50-point gap between the parties in belief in the effects of a warming planet having already begun. More than 8 in 10 Democrats think global warming has been demonstrated; only a third of Republicans agree....

    Richard Stengel, a former high-level U.S. government official, head of the office for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs at the State Department from 2013 to 2016, former editor of Time Magazine and a regular pundit on MSNBC, said in April of 2018 at a Council on Foreign Relations forum about “fake news,” that he “supports the use of propaganda on American citizens.” He then continued; “Basically, every country creates their own narrative story and, you know, my old job at the State Department was what people used to joke as the ‘chief propagandist’ job.” Keep in mind, that in 2013,...

    Facebook blocked more people from seeing posts about 4th of July fireworks in Greece, N.Y. Why? Politics and Russia. Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich says he was trying to inform as many people as possible about the free 4th of July events in the town. When he boosted the posts, he says Facebook blocked them because Facebook said they were political. Reilich posted the events on his official supervisor Facebook page where he is listed as a "government official." When he tried to pay Facebook $90 to boost the posts, so more people could see them, he says Facebook said...
  • Remembering Journolist and progressive media’s bag of tricks

    A couple weeks ago I came across an old article about Journolist which I found striking. In particular, I was struck by the ways in which some of the debates taking place among left-leaning journalists back in 2008 still seem to encompass the ways the left-wing media operates today. For those who don’t remember it, Journolist was just a listserv created by Ezra Klein. The list was invitation only and was mostly made up of progressive journalists. In theory, the list was a kind of digital water cooler where like-minded people could talk to others in the field. That may...

    An “off-the-record” private discussion group for left-wing journalists, similar to the controversial “JournoList” cabal, has been discovered. The group, which is hosted on Google Groups, was discovered after messages from New York Magazine journalist Jesse Singal were leaked. “The listserv, per its ‘About’ page, aims to provide an ‘off-the-record discussion forum for left-of-center journalists, authors, academics, and wonks.’ It has been around for at least eight years (I found discussion posts dating back as far as 2010), and has just over 400 members (403 at the time of this writing),” reported Jezebel. “These members include New York Times best-selling authors,...

    It’s not news mainstream media lined up en masse behind Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential campaign, but it is worth noting how many in the media were willing to compromise their ability to report fairly on the election by connecting themselves to her campaign. At least 65 prominent mainstream media personalities were participating in dinners, cocktail receptions and other functions, according to an analysis of material exposed by Wikileaks. The events were held ostensibly to make them feel like insiders to the campaign and promoters of its objectives. In what was billed as an off-the-record meeting for drinks with...

    Americans see more political bias in news than ever, and nearly seven-in-10 blame media owners for influencing the ways stories are reported, according to the latest failing report card on the nation’s news business. According to “American Views: Trust, Media and Democracy,” a new report from Gallup and the Knight Foundation, the percentage of Americans who see a great deal of political bias in stories has nearly doubled since 1989. Currently, 45 percent see “a great deal” of political bias, said the report, according to an analysis by the Nieman Lab. Maybe worse, said Nieman: “Less than half of Americans...

    Liberal reporters are scandalized by what they say is President Trump’s effort to “discredit” and “undermine” special counsel Robert Mueller, worried that it could presage an attempt to “remove Mueller, or end his investigation.” But when President Bill Clinton was being investigated by Ken Starr, journalists applauded Democratic and White House attacks on the independent counsel, and frequently joined in themselves. Today’s journalists seem appalled by attempts by the President and his allies that question Mueller’s credibility. Washington Post reporters Devlin Barrett and Sean Sullivan sounded the alarm in a front-page story on December 7: “Several law enforcement officials said...
  • Hah! Democrat and Liberal Media’s Latest Motto: We Lost But We’re Really Winning

    Democrats and the liberal media have already conceded Alabama to Judge Roy Moore. After hurling every smear and vicious attack EVER at the Alabama Judge they see they are still going to lose. Alabama voters DON’T TRUST DEMOCRATS OR THEIR LIBERAL MEDIA! Why should they? When was the last time the Washington Post or ANY liberal media outlet published a positive piece on Alabama? 30 years ago? 50 years ago? Judge Roy Moore pulled ahead of his very liberal opponent Doug Jones in the Alabama Senate special election. Moore now leads Jones 49-45 in the Real Clear Politics averages.

    Does anyone believe that the fake ABC and CNN hit pieces on Trump were the result of overzealous fairness? If it weren’t so outrageous, this would be funny . . . On Brian Stelter’s CNN show this morning, during a discussion of the spate of MSM misreporting of stories in a way unfavorable to President Trump, guest David Frum actually said: “The worst mistakes that press organizations have made in the coverage of Trump has precisely occurred in their effort, their overzealous effort, to be fair to the President.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    President Trump on Saturday evening issued a call for a reporter with The Washington Post to be fired because of a quickly deleted tweet that presented a misleading impression of Trump’s rally crowd in Florida. The Post reporter, David Weigel, had earlier tweeted a photo of the crowd gathered at Pensacola Bay Center for Trump’s speech there Friday evening, showing numerous empty seats. He removed the tweet after being told by others that the photo was taken before the venue filled up and apologized in a later Twitter exchange with the president. Trump’s public response: “.@daveweigel of the Washington Post...

    Once again, you called it right, President Trump! The truth FINALLY got its pants back on Friday while mainstream media liars were caught flashing their dirty undies at the masses, their lies having already traveled halfway around the world. This time, the odious stench of burning coming from CNN, CBS, MSNBC and the far more cunning Washington Post, all of whose pants were on fire, went viral. With most attention riveted on Liar King CNN, CBS and MSNBC came jumping, flames and all, into the lie pit‚Äîallowing the WaPo’s David Weigel to almost wiggle out of his lies.

    In an extensive piece published by The Intercept on Saturday, co-founder of the news site Glenn Greenwald excoriated CNN (as well as a host of other news outlets) for recklessly advancing agenda driven stories involving the Russia investigation, with no transparency when the stories blow up in their face and go viral with fake news. Greenwald began by noting how “Friday was one of the most embarrassing days for the U.S. media in quite a long time.”“The humiliation orgy was kicked off by CNN, with MSNBC and CBS close behind, with countless pundits, commentators and operatives joining the party throughout...
