  • CNN’s Stelter Takes Shots at ‘Criminal Presidency’ Ran By Trump, Fox News

    CNN media reporter and TV host Brian Stelter’s hatred for President Trump and Fox News was on full display during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources”. He spent most of the show decrying the President and Fox News while relegating the disturbing and horrific revelations in the sexual misconduct allegations against former CBS executive Les Moonves to a segment during the latter half of the program. In the first segment of the show, Stelter was speaking with CNN political analyst and former Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein about the similarities between the scandals for former President Richard Nixon and President Donald Trump. “After you...
  • When will liberals give Melania Trump the credit she deserves?

    In the year of the woman, First Lady Melania Trump is the greatest of them all. While the media is busy salivating over Hollywood actresses and radical female Democrats, it is Melania Trump who deserves recognition for everything she has done for women and children in the last two years. The mainstream media loves to portray Republicans as aggressive upholders of the “patriarchy” who seek to quash the cause of gender equality. Yet the ostensible feminists on the left often bully and intimidate strong conservative women, attacking them for their beliefs and values. This is why I was not surprised...

    Objective journalism in Canada’s mainstream media is effectively dead It’s no secret Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has come under heavy criticism lately. His popularity began to tank when he went on his disastrous trip to India and, with his constant wardrobe changes, showed the entire world what a fool he is. Will he and the Liberals win the next election scheduled to be held in October of next year? Lorne Gunter, writing an opinion piece in the Sun newspaper, thinks he will.

    If viewers want to see a host engaged in Trump bashing, there are dozens of other outlets they can watch Any American who follows the news coverage of President Trump knows that the mainstream media is completely opposed to him. Their coverage of his administration is biased, relentlessly negative and needlessly nasty. These haters could not even take a break from their Trump bashing during the funeral of former President George H. W. Bush. Liberal activists, masquerading as journalists on MSNBC and CNN, criticized the President for such trivia as folding his arms during the service and not singing from...

    NBC's Katy Tur, responding to an article in the New Yorker about climate, looked into the camera and asked, "How pointless is my life? And how pointless are the decisions that I make on a day-to-day basis when we are not focused on climate change every day, when it's not leading every one of our newscasts?" It's a safe bet that not only will climate change not lead all newscasts, it will not even lead Tur's very often. And the reason is not any of those often proffered for failure to act in ways activists prefer. It won't be that...

    For non-Chinese journalists, in Africa and elsewhere, working for Chinese state-run media offers generous remuneration and new opportunities. When CCTV launched its Washington headquarters in 2012, no fewer than five former or current BBC correspondents based in Latin America joined the broadcaster. One of them, Daniel Schweimler, who is now at al-Jazeera, said his experience there was fun and relatively trouble-free, though he didn’t think many people actually saw his stories. But foreign journalists working at Xinhua, the state-run news agency, see their stories reaching much larger audiences. Government subsidies cover around 40% of Xinhua’s costs, and it generates income...

    One of the most comforting talking points in politics is to claim that your political opponents are irrationally obsessed. I'm sure this is as old as time, but I first noticed it in the late 1990s. Many of Bill Clinton's most ardent supporters responded to every new criticism by claiming the president's enemies were twisted by hate for the man. During the George W. Bush administration, thanks in part to a phrase coined by my late friend Charles Krauthammer, conservatives deflected criticism of the president by claiming his foes suffered from "Bush derangement syndrome." The term caught on, and Obama...

    Regardless of the arguments attempting to deny the existence of fake news or down play its impact, the truth is that it has infected both journalism and social discourse. The business of propaganda or creating false news for the purpose of manipulating public opinion is not new. People like Dan Rather have made a career of it, the New York Times built an empire using it and CNN created a worldwide brand, making the use of fake news an accepted format in the process. ~snip~ The first amendment guarantees both free speech and freedom of the press. It is fundamental...

    They just couldn’t help themselves. During their Wednesday evening reports on the deeply touching and emotional funeral service for the late President George H.W. Bush at the National Cathedral, broadcast networks ABC, CBS, and NBC had to get in their digs against President Trump for his behavior (or lack thereof). One even touted how Trump managed to keep his mouth shut about Bush all week. In the midst of their stories on the funeral service, both ABC and CBS noted the tension between President Trump and the Clintons. “The Trumps and Clintons did not shake hands,” reported CBS Evening News...

    Just before Thanksgiving, House Republicans amended the list of documents they’d like President Trump to declassify in the Russia investigation. With little fanfare or explanation, the lawmakers led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) added a string of emails between the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to their wish list. Sources tell me the targeted documents may provide the most damning evidence to date of potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), evidence that has been kept from the majority of members of Congress for more than two years. The email exchanges included then-FBI...

    Fake News: Since the passing of former President George H. W. Bush, the so-called “mainstream media” has come out in praise of the man and his leadership, but it wasn’t always that way. In fact, in the 1980s and early 1990s, when Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bush were in office, the Leftist mainstream media was vicious, accusatory, and lacking in any praise whatsoever — just like they are today when it comes to POTUS Donald Trump. The reason? Republican presidents don’t get a pass like Democrat presidents do. And talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh called them out for their “phony”...

    Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd said George H.W. Bush called Donald Trump a curse word and threw his shoe at the television when Trump was on. Dowd said, “I think, you know, that Donald Trump would be incomprehensible to him literally. And even that was 2011, so in our wildest imagination we couldn’t imagine that Trump would be the nominee and that he would, you know, eviscerate H.W.’s dream of Jeb in the White House with two words, ‘low energy.’ All of that was unimaginable.”

    Science Media Still Overwhelmingly Leftist December 5, 2018 | David F. Coppedge Try to find a conservative point of view in the following secular news stories. We found one in the long list. Last week, we illustrated the disease of misconduct and unreliability in Big Science. And yet Big Science and Big Media continue their onslaught against Christian values, conservative politics, and Donald Trump. Here’s a rapid-fire list to prove it; these titanic conglomerates are juggernauts of leftism, not pure-hearted seekers of truth. They stray far outside their domain of natural knowledge into politics, ethics, and philosophy. Can anyone find...

    NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News that Behar’s remark during the Bush tribute was a “microcosm” of the media’s “permanent obsession” with Trump. “Joy Behar’s insistence that the Bush tribute center around Trump was a microcosm of the media’s permanent obsession with the current president, showing an embarrassing inability to cover stories or pay tribute to people like George H. W. Bush or John McCain without their cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome breaking through,” Houck said. Mediaite editor Caleb Howe agreed that there was an “obsession” that was made apparent by Behar. “Behar doesn’t even know what she...

    If President Donald Trump appears to be rattled by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation now — and his extraordinary tweets on the subject suggest that he is — just wait. Over the next few weeks, a series of court filings are due that may shed substantial light on what Mueller has learned from people who once sat in Trump's inner circle. That could happen as soon as Tuesday, when Mueller is scheduled to file a detailed memo in support of the sentencing of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. That memo would include information about any "bad acts" Flynn committed...

    The Federalist ^ | December 3, 2018 | Margot Cleveland
    Last week, Donald Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about efforts to build a Trump Tower complex in Moscow. Cohen told the Senate Intelligence Committee that the Trump Organization stopped pursuing the project in January 2016, but in pleading guilty Cohen stated that he continued to pursue the Trump Tower project into June of that year. Cohen claimed he lied out of loyalty to Trump and to be consistent with then-candidate Trump’s political messaging. Following Cohen’s surprise guilty plea, the media and critics of the president wasted no time pushing collusion narratives, conspiracy theories, and...

    North Korea's most famous news anchor has reportedly been replaced by younger presenters as the country's state-owned broadcaster undergoes a modern makeover. Ri Chun-hee began working for North Korean TV in 1971 and became chief news presenter of KCTV in the 1980s. Nicknamed the "pink lady," she usually wears a pink Western-style suit or traditional Hanbok dress. She has been characterised by her animated announcing style, resonant voice and sometimes vitriolic tone, and was once described as "vaguely menacing". But the 75-year-old presenter - who cried onscreen when announcing the deaths of Kim II-sung and Kim Jong-il - has not...

    There isn’t much liberals will let stand between them and advancing their agenda. Credibility? Nope. Integrity? No way. Friends? No. Family? Maybe. OK, there actually isn’t anything I can think progressives won’t toss aside, or into a woodchipper, if it became an inconvenience or an obstacle. This week was no different. Oh, they had him. They had him so dead to rights. The prison cell was reserved and the marching band was warming up. The only problem was, it was a lie. Donald Trump Jr. had lied to Congress, they said. Washed up actress Bette Midler went so far as...

    According to CNN’s Jim Acosta, the revelation that persons in the United States illegally are entitled to more than $40,000 a year in federal benefits “casts a sinister light on the Trump Administration’s extraordinary efforts to block the Central American caravan’s efforts to claim these benefits for its members.” “Why would there be such a program if these immigrants weren’t entitled to this compensation?” Acosta asked. “Trump’s attempt to characterize those who are merely asserting their legal rights as an ‘invasion’ is a slander designed to conceal his government’s refusal to recognize and enforce these immigrants’ rights to this money.”...
