    Imagine that you were, god forbid, a journalist. You’ve been assigned to relay the facts of a fatal shooting. The scene is a bar in the middle of a rioting city with its windows smashed in and a group of people gathered outside. The bar owner’s father comes out to confront them, and one of them knocks the old man to the ground. At this point the bar owner himself comes out and, indicating that he has a gun on his person, and demands that the group leave — only to be tackled to the ground as well. The owner...
  • America Must Find a way to Hold the Media Accountable for its Serial Mendacity

    LetÂ’s revisit one of the Campaign UpdateÂ’s recurring themes, which is that the corrupt national news media establishment, like the Democrat Party, represents a true existential threat to our countryÂ’s survival in its current form. If we cannot find some means of holding these disloyal and destructive media outlets accountable for their systemic and pernicious false reporting, and do it soon, then the United States will descend into chaos and possibly a second Civil War. Mollie Hemingway put it bluntly in a tweet yesterday: Mollie âś” @MZHemingway The disconnect between reality and media coverage is disorienting, angering, terrifying. 46.8K 7:57...

    The media lied about the Russia collusion hoax, about the Mueller probe, about impeachment, about the coronavirus—and now they’re lying about the riots. It seems no great event or upheaval in our national life can pass now without the media lying to our faces about it.They lied about the Trump campaign colluding with Russia in 2016. They lied about the Mueller probe and Brett Kavanaugh and former national security adviser Mike Flynn. They lied about Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president and the impeachment farce that ensued. They lied about the coronavirus and the lockdowns and the White House...

    For the past four months, Americans have endured a constant barrage of news and fear porn about the Wuhan coronavirus. The country has been locked down as tightly as Anthony Weiner’s infamous laptop computer, now finally starting to slowly reopen. We have heard about ventilators and ICU beds, social distancing and masks, death counts and vaccines, all to the point of over-saturation. Fox News ran a nearly constant death count side bar and CNN blamed the virus, the resulting economic shutdown, and every other bit of trouble in the world on their least favorite president ever. Only those in a...

    Anti-trump liberals (i.e., Democrats and the media) just have to find something — anything — wrong with the president, even if it means making it up. The perpetually not-President Hillary Clinton on Monday shared a side-by-side photo of the White House, one lit up in a rainbow spectrum from 2015, when Barack Obama was in office, and the other appearing almost in pitch black with no lighting. “Elections matter,” tweeted Clinton. Former Obama adviser David Axelrod shared the same image of the darkened White House, calling it “perfect symbolism,” because, “if ever the country needed the occupant of the White...

    Anybody else seeing all of the SJW/virtue signaling commercials and banners on their TV on all shows, news, etc? It's just so saccharine how much they are pandering to the element of society that is systematically trying to bring down our nation. There is no attempt to disguise the agenda here, it is just overt as can be. Newcasters interview protesters saying they want and expect charges filed on all 4 police officers in the George Floyd "Murder" and they want 4 convictions - no sense of irony in their calls for "justice". They are taunting anyone who disagrees or...

    City Journal ^ | June 2, 2020 | Willis L. Krumholz
    ...The media and some in the Democratic Party have been complicit in covering for the group, repeating the absurd point that Antifa stands for “anti-fascist”—implying that to be against Antifa must mean that you are a fascist. This schoolyard logic works as a one-liner on television, where no one can counter it. Maybe the media are also afraid. One of the only journalists to cover Antifa was beaten savagely, and remains subject to threats. And as we saw in Atlanta, where rioters invaded the headquarters of CNN, even left-wing, Democrat-friendly corporate media are vulnerable to attack. Many have pointed out...

    Leftist outlet Teen Vogue told its readers that the terrorist organization Antifa “aspires to create a better world” in the wake of riots that have broken out across the country, which have involved looting, vandalism, businesses being destroyed, beatings, and death. “‘Antifa grows out of a larger revolutionary politics that aspires toward creating a better world, but the primary motivation is to stop racists from organizing,'” tweeted Teen Vogue on Monday. The magazine’s tweet included an 2017 Teen Vogue interview with Dartmouth College historian Mark Bray, in which he defends the violent group that President Donald Trump recently announced would...

    video went viral of a journalist in Santa Monica, California, holding a power tool near a building destroyed by looters and posing for an Instagram photo before quickly jumping back in a car to drive away. Online commenters were angry that the woman appeared to be pretending to help for the sake of a photo op. The woman’s identity was confirmed by New York Times journalist Taylor Lorenz as Fiona Moriarty-McLaughlin, an intern with the Washington Examiner. In the video, after posing with the construction worker, she hands him back his power tool and says, “Thank you so much” before...
  • That 'White Nationalists Causing George Floyd Riot Chaos' Talking Point Took Another Devastating Blow

    It was yet another night of rioting and looting. Granted, in some areas, the chaos was not nearly as bad as the previous night. Fox News’ Kevin Corke reported that while last night’s law enforcement response was not perfect, it wasn’t nearly as anarchic. That’s probably because every law enforcement agency and their mother were out to ensure the curfew was enforced. For Democrats out there struggling to figure out how to control their cities, a big police presence pretty much ensures law and order is re-established. Just saying. Yet, as the rioting intensified over the past couple of days,...

    Seattle police fired flash bangs and tear gas to break up a crowd of demonstrators on a baseball field in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of the city – and an MSNBC reporter and her crew were among those forced to disperse. The frightening video footage shows Jo Ling Kent reporting live on the air of the cable news channel late on Monday night, when police surged toward an area packed with demonstrators and used crowd-dispersal methods. As Kent begins her report, several flash bangs are heard exploding in the background. There are also several small explosions resembling fireworks. Kent, who...

Five things that must be clearly pointed out! Must be clearly pointed out #1: "Systemic racism" and "police brutality" is largely a Democrat "Blue" city problem!!! They try to blame Trump and conservatives, but in reality this is a rebellion by largely Democrat constituents against THEIR own mayors, governors and reps It's by far in "Blue" cities not "Red" ones!

    Reporter Omar Jimenez has been arrested live on television in Minneapolis while reporting on widespread looting and riots throughout the city. He was live on-air speaking about the situation when police in riot gear arrested Mr. Jimenez, placing him in handcuffs. The police then led him to a waiting patrol car. The mainstream media was in shock and that was the news of the day, even do the reporter was released just on hour later without being harmed! But the mainstream media failed to report attacks on reporters when they are committed by the BLM. During the latest protests in...

Twitter Inc. changed its profile bio to read simply “#BlackLivesMatter,” while Alphabet Inc.’s Google said on its main search page: “We stand in support of racial equality, and all those who search for it.” Google’s YouTube said it would donate $1 million “in support of efforts to address social injustice.” Major streaming services — such as Netflix Inc.,, Inc.’s Prime Video, Walt Disney Co.-controlled Hulu and AT&T’s T, HBO Max,...
  • Walter Lippmann explains why journalists apply the label of protesters to rioters

    05/31/2020 8:14:37 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 11 replies
    Journalism today likes to provoke us, do you feel provoked? In the blueprint for modern journalism, "Public Opinion", Lippmann wrote on Page 355 the following: It is a problem of provoking feeling in the reader, of inducing him to feel a sense of personal identification with the stories he is reading. News which does not offer this opportunity to introduce oneself into the struggle which it depicts cannot appeal to a wide audience. The audience must participate in the news, much as it participates in the drama, by personal identification. Just as everyone holds his breath when the heroine is...

    Kayleigh McEnany's White House press briefings instantly became must-watch TV when she first took the podium on May 1. You need only watch one to see why, and it's not because of her looks. Or at least not entirely. The one on Tuesday, May 26, was particularly entertaining, first as a display of a certain kind of journalism and second as show of how faulty data can still have their uses. The fireworks began when Ryan Lizza had his chance to pop a question. Lizza is a decent representative of the type. Since graduating from U.C. Berkeley in the mid-1990s,...

    Microsoft is to replace dozens of contract journalists on its MSN website and use automated systems to select news stories, US and UK media report. The curating of stories from news organisations and selection of headlines and pictures for the MSN site is currently done by journalists. Artificial intelligence will perform these news production tasks, sources told the Seattle Times. Microsoft said it was part of an evaluation of its business. The US tech giant said in a statement: "Like all companies, we evaluate our business on a regular basis. This can result in increased investment in some places and,...
