Thu, 01/18/2018 - 21:23
<p>As if their biased outbursts on CNN weren’t enough, chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta and political analyst April Ryan got the chance to unleash more of their rage at President Trump, in a friendly event hosted by the Newseum in Washington D.C., January 17, called “Journalism in the Trump Era.”</p> <div> </div>

Al Capone Lives!

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 19:58
<p>“You can get a lot farther with a smile and a gun than you can with just a smile.” This quote has often been attributed to the late Chicago mobster Al Capone, who with his fellow organized crime buddies used extortion as one of their tactics to get what they wanted. Today's modern congressional Democrats have clearly benefited from Capone's example.</p>

Good News Vs. Private Conversations

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 19:55
<p>WASHINGTON — Last week the headlines should have abounded with the year's good news. It was the economy: gross domestic product was up some 3 percent and, for the last quarter, nearly 4 percent; unemployment was down to a 17-year low, with black unemployment at the lowest level since such statistics were compiled. The stock market was soaring, up some 40 percent since Donald Trump was elected, and inflation was low. </p>

Ryan Murphy Calls His New Show ‘A Bracing Cold Slap’ Against Trump

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 19:55
<p>Apparently a miniseries based on true crime can be a political statement of the resistance.<br /> Ryan Murphy believes his <em>American Crime Story</em> second season is something that will be relevant, thanks to none other than President Trump. According to <em>Entertainment Weekly</em>, the installment, titled <em>The Assassination of Gianni Versace</em>, is “a chance to discuss sexuality and homophobia in the 1990s.” Murphy told EW: “This is a bracing cold slap against the policies that the current government has.” </p> <p> </p>

Scarborough: Trump Doctor Is ‘Shameful’ ‘Sycophant’, ‘Political Hack’

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 19:36
<p>On Thursday’s <em>Morning Joe</em>, co-host Joe Scarborough doubled down on his promotion of the “girther” conspiracy theory by repeatedly attacking the character and integrity of Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, the official Physician to the President. Drawing his points in large part from a <em>Washington Post</em> column written by Dana Milbank, Scarborough unleashed his contempt at Jackson for giving Trump a clean bill of health. Joe labeled the doctor a “shameful” man who “sounded like a sycophant” and used “the words of a political hack.” While this was happening, co-host Mika Brzezinski chimed in occasionally to wonder about whether or not Jackson was lying about his medical report, at one point stating: “It doesn’t sound like he wrote it.”</p>

Oh, Please! Joy Reid Embarrasses Herself with Fact-Free, Nasty Attack on NRO’s David French

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 19:27
<p>On Wednesday, MSNBC’s AM Joy host and far-left charlatan Joy Reid found herself in hot water for claiming (thanks to the liberal site RawStory.com) that <em>National Review</em>’s David French should be ashamed of himself for penning a story excusing the prospect of nuclear war because “it will only kill Democrats and minorities.” Reid eventually offered a response that can best be referred to as milk toast, appearing to pin the blame on RawStory.com.</p>

No Anthem Kneelers Are on Remaining NFL Playoff Teams; NBC Hardest Hit?

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 18:00
<p>On Monday, Valerie Richardson at the <em>Washington Times</em> noted that no teams with players who continued to kneel during the National Anthem before National Football League games until the end of the regular season qualified for the playoffs. A sports psychologist sees a potentially important lesson in this result, while NBC, which has promised to showcase kneeling players during the Anthem before the beginning of this year's Super Bowl, may be destined for disappointment.</p>

NBC Mourns Deportation of Drug-Trafficking Illegal Immigrant

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 17:54
<p>In a story for Thursday’s NBC <em>Today</em> designed to put pressure on Republicans to reach a DACA immigration deal with Democrats, correspondent Jacob Soboroff lamented that the U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants sometimes follow their deported parents back to Mexico. Buried within the three-minute report was the fact that the father of one such child was sent back after being convicted and imprisoned in the U.S. for drug trafficking.</p>

CNN Knows Better Than the President’s Doctor? Network Claims Trump DOES Have Heart Disease

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 17:51
<p>Never let reality get in the way, CNN. After the White House released the largely positive data from Donald Trump’s physical, CNN Doctor Sanjay Gupta refused to accept the findings and overruled the doctor who actually examined the President. Asked on Tuesday if Trump had heart disease, Dr. Ronny Jackson responded, “No, not at all… I think he had great findings across the board, but the one that stands out more than anything to me is his cardiac health. His cardiac health is excellent.”</p>

NBC Nightly News Silent on Dow 26K Record, Covers Dieting Trend Instead

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 16:59
<p>The Dow Jones Industrial closed above 26,000 for the first time in history Jan. 17, but NBC <em>Nightly News with Lester Holt </em>didn’t say anything about the latest record. Instead, it spent nearly two minutes on dieting.</p> <p>The only acknowledgement from Nightly News that Dow crossed that milestone was the on screen graphic which listed the Dow, NASDAQ and S&P closing numbers without commentary. The graphic didn’t even note that the Dow’s close at 26,115.65 was a new record high.</p>

Selective Memory: CNN's Cuomo Denies Own Show Accused GOP of Sexism Against Warren

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 16:51
<p>CNN’s Chris Cuomo certainly seems to have a selective memory when it comes to recalling how his own show has responded to Democrat and Republican “scandals.” After Senator Cory Booker launched an angry lecture against Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen for not remembering whether or not President Trump said “sh**hole” during a private White House meeting last week, the RNC took a note from the left, accusing Booker of “mansplaining” to Nielsen.</p>

Will News Media Recall Schumer's 2013 Vow to Not Shutdown Over Immigration?

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 16:23
<p>Back in 2013, with Democrats controlling the Senate and White House, a study by the Media Research Center determined that the<strong> </strong>broadcast networks mostly blamed Republicans for that year's government shutdown. In the midst of the shutdown, Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer (now the Democratic Senate leader) actually went on ABC's <em>This Week</em> on October 6, 2013 to assure host George Stephanopoulos that Democrats would never shut the government down over an issue such as immigration.</p>

Alt-Left Insanity: U.S. Soldiers Are ‘Storm-Troopers Of An Evil Empire’

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 15:00
<div>America is an evil empire. It’s troops are “fascists in uniform,” with every one of them a “war criminal.” That bit of anti-American propaganda comes via the Antifa site ItsGoingDown -- the alt-left folks who can’t afford an apostrophe.</div> <p>I had thought the Antifa scum had calmed down after news reports that government was treating them like domestic terrorists. Or, if nothing else, I figured they had gone to ground or under it. This is the first truly demented piece I’ve seen on IGD in some time.</p> <p>Headlined: “On Yellow Ribbons and Counter-Insurgency: From a Veteran,” it purports to tell a veteran’s view of why America is evil. Certainly, we’ve seen anti-American veterans before. Remember when John Kerry claimed to have tossed his medals?</p>

CNN's Cuomo Claims Trump Admin Painting Illegals As 'Monsters'

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 14:26
<p>On Wednesday's <em>Cuomo Pime Time</em>, as White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah appeared as guest to debate immigration reform, CNN host Chris Cuomo accused the Trump administration of portraying illegal immigrants as "monsters" and "villains," and claimed that "white supremacists" are a bigger threat to the country that the White House will not take seriously enough.</p>

Tax Bill Windfall: As 65 Companies Award Bonuses Networks Air Just Two Stories

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 13:22
<p>Thousands of workers across the U.S. were awarded bonuses, wages hikes or higher retirement account matches this year thanks to the tax reform bill recently passed by the GOP and signed into law by President Donald Trump. But this huge economic story affecting so many was practically ignored by the network evening news shows in 2018.</p>

Trump Administration Looms Large In Hulu Cult Series 'The Path'

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 05:33
<p>Hulu’s original series <em>The Path </em>recently returned for a third season by premiering three new episodes. Since the show follows a fictional religious movement, it’s appropriate that it, too, falls under the liberal cult mentality of Trump bashing. At least we’re all on the same page now.</p>

Pathetic! ‘Hardball’ Panel Offers Gooey, Criticism-Free Love Letter to Liberal Media

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 05:15
<p>Less than an hour before Wednesday night’s unveiling of the Fake News Awards, MSNBC’s <em>Hardball</em> assembled a panel to condemn media criticism and fake news accusations as the impetus behind authoritarian crackdowns on the press, but also offer an almost erotic tribute to the media’s supposed objectivism and commitment to fighting President Trump.</p>

Maddow Cues Dan Rather: Trump Denying Racism Is Like Nixon's 'I Am Not a Crook'

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 04:36
<p>MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and CNN host Brian Stelter claim to hate Fake News, but each keeps promoting the original News Faker, disgraced former CBS anchor Dan Rather. On Monday night, Maddow invited Rather to discuss Trump and how he golfed on Martin Luther King Day. But first, she cued up Rather to denounce Trump's alleged "s---hole" remarks, and Rather typically compared Trump to another of his nemeses, Richard Nixon.</p>
