Washington Post on NYT Iconoclast Bari Weiss: ‘Maybe She Deserves’ Left-Wing Hate

Mon, 03/12/2018 - 03:14
<p>Avi Selk, reporter for the <em>Washington Post, </em>callously suggested that liberal iconoclast and <em>New York Times</em> editorial writer Bari Weiss was getting what was coming to her in terms of online obloquy for her crimes against left-wing hyper-sensitivity  The headline to the Arts & Entertainment “analysis” piece was even worse than the text: “A New York Times columnist blamed a far-left ‘mob’ for her woes. But maybe she deserves them.” Weiss deserved being called a racist and getting death wishes on Twitter?</p>

Trump Bribes Media, Melania 'Deadens' Her Face on Showtime's Colbert Comedy

Mon, 03/12/2018 - 02:52
<p>The March 11 episode of Showtime’s Stephen Colbert "comedy" <em>Our Cartoon President,</em> titled “Media Strategy,” was all about President Trump’s war with the mainstream media, with a side story about First Lady Melania Trump’s goal of having an expressionless face to avoid rolling her eyes in public when Trump lies and over-exaggerates. No, really. That was the show.</p>

On Trump Tariffs, AP Reporter Tries to Frighten, Misquotes Prominent Economist

Mon, 03/12/2018 - 02:18
<p>The Associated Press's Paul Wiseman has apparently tired of good economic news. Saturday, the AP reporter painted a frightening picture of what a trade war based on President Donald Trump's planned tariffs on a tiny sliver of U.S. imports might do to the world's economy, mischaracterizing a prominent economist's position to build his case.</p>

Mon, 03/12/2018 - 01:24
<p>To kick of his Sunday evening show on CNN March 11, host Van Jones warmly welcomed media mogul Oprah Winfrey by fangirling over how much he missed seeing her on television and pleading with her to give "us" “hope” for America’s future, with President Trump in office.</p>

LA Times Columnist Falsely Claims North Korea's Kim Jong Un Hasn't Offered to Denuclearize

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 23:31
<p>Of all the absurd takes on the U.S.–North Korean situation in the wake of President Trump's tentative, conditional agreement to meet with Kim Jong Un, Barbara Demick's Friday "analysis" piece at the <em>Los Angeles Times</em> has to be near the top of any "worst" list. The headline: <strong>"Whatever comes next, North Korea's Kim Jong Un can claim a win against Trump."</strong> Oh really?</p>

CNN Panelist: If You Laugh at Trump’s Jokes, You’re Damaging Society

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 21:41
<p>During a speech at a campaign rally for a congressional race in Pennsylvania on Saturday, President Trump unleashed on the liberal media and NBC Political Director Chuck Todd whom he called a “sleeping son of a b*tch.” And as would be expected, CNN media reporter Brian Stelter and his <em>Reliable Sources</em> panel responded with their own righteously indignant hot takes. Chief among them was <em>Baltimore Sun</em> media critic David Zurawik who argued that if you laughed at Trump’s jokes you were damaging society.</p>

CNN's Blackwell Suggests Bannon 'Extremism' More Important Than Farrakhan

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 21:09
<p>On <em>New Day Sunday</em>, CNN viewers finally saw the recent controversy over Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan's ties to Democrats at least mentioned by someone other than Jake Tapper during a discussion of former Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon's speech to a right-wing political group in France. But -- in spite of the incendiary and blatantly racist nature of some of Farrakhan's comments, some of which have been very recent -- co-host Victor Blackwell suggested that it was more important to give attention to Bannon's speech than that of Farrakhan.</p>

<p><em>The Washington Post</em> broke into reporting on Louis Farrakhan and the Democrats on Sunday with a “Fact Checker” column by Glenn Kessler. On page A-4, Kessler gave Rep. Keith Ellison – deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee – a “four Pinocchios” rating for insisting he had no involvement with Farrakhan since 2006.</p>

Allergic to Good News? CNN Stops Tracking Trump-Era Job Growth

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 20:22
<p>CNN last updated a presentation tracking job growth since President Donald Trump's inauguration on January 5, the day the government issued its December jobs report. This halt coincided with the January effective date of the GOP-Trump tax-cut law and wide expectations of significant job growth because of that legislation, and is more evidence — as if we needed any — that the network which is obsessed with reporting negative news about Trump and his administration is allergic to anything which might make him and his policies look good.</p>

Meet the Press Panel Freaks: Incompetent Trump Handing NoKo a Victory

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 18:21
<p>When it was first announced last Thursday that President Trump was to personally meet with North Korea Dictator Kim Jong-un for negotiations, the media’s response varied from optimistic to seething anger. But with some time, it appears as though their consensus is now to denounce the idea as was blatantly obvious on Sunday’s <em>Meet the Press</em>. The entire panel up in arms and fretting that Trump was either going to hand North Korea a victory or blow a gasket at the meeting and start a war.</p>

New York Times Celebrates Trump Hater Who Blockaded News From His Mind

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 17:23
<p>Many liberals woke up on the morning of November 9 in a state of extreme shock when they found out that the impossible happened...Donald J. Trump had been elected the 45th president of the United States. As we have seen in the many entertaining post-election videos, many reacted with shock, fury, or extreme sadness. However, one of the Trump haters acted in a very unique fashion; he blockaded not only all news about Donald Trump but, in fact, all news of the outside world from his mind. </p>

ABC, NBC Hype ‘Blue Wave’ Taking PA-18 to Help Dems Win House

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 14:50
<p>The special election for Pennsylvania’s 18<sup>th</sup> congressional district between Rick Saccone (R) and Connor Lamb (D) was two days away and the liberal media was set for it to be a victory in their favor. A top story on each of ABC’s and NBC’s Sunday morning news programs was dedicated to playing up the possibility that the Democrats could beat out Republicans in their own district, which would help take back control of the House of Representatives in what they were calling a “blue wave.”</p>

Former NY Times Executive Editor: 'I Carry A Little Plastic Obama Doll In My Purse'

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 13:06
<p>Former <em>New York Times </em>executive editor Jill Abramson is really letting her Democratic pom poms fly. Her latest column for the <em>Guardian</em> newspaper is headlined "Are we seeing signs of a Democratic wave in the primaries? It’s thrilling to see signs of a Trump rebellion – it could lead to winning control of the House, and maybe the 2020 election." She wrote "It’s easy to look at what’s happening in Washington DC and despair. That’s why I carry a little plastic Obama doll in my purse. I pull him out every now and then to remind myself that the United States had a progressive, African American president until very recently."</p>

Video of Alleged Human Smuggler Taken by ICE in Front of Daughters Becomes Press Obsession

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 12:24
<p>Leftists finally think (erroneously) they have a game-changing incident involving a Border Patrol apprehension of an illegal immigrant. A week ago, Perla Morales-Luna was arrested in front of her crying daughters in National City, California. Someone videotaped the incident. The video has gone viral. What most early press reports failed to note, or buried deep in their stories, is that the woman refused to be taken peacefully and in private. One unusual exception was a Friday evening Associated Press story.</p>

Israeli Paper Twists Mark Levin Into 'Controversial' 'Shock Jock'...Like Howard Stern?

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 04:34
<p>Other countries have the same liberal bias as America does. They also slam Mark Levin. Raoul Wittliff of <em>The Times of Israel </em>reported on a sneak peek of Mark Levin's Sunday night Fox News Channel interview with Israel's leader Benjamin Netanyahu by describing Levin as a "controversial talk-radio host" and a "conservative shock jock." There's nothing in this article that would explain how Levin is not a "shock jock" like Howard Stern.</p>

NY Times Story on Farrakhan and Dems Omits Ellison, Carson, Four Others

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 03:21
<p>Until Friday, the <em>New York Times</em> had not mentioned Louis Farrakhan in a serious story since October. The Old Gray Lady tried mightily to avoid covering Democrats' and leftist leaders' past and recent embraces of the controversial Nation of Islam leader before finally — but very incompletely — giving in. Jonah Engel Bromwich's story failed to mention Congressmen Keith Ellison and Andre Carson, and ignored a days-earlier call by a Republican Jewish group for the resignations of seven "Farrakhan-connected" congresspersons.</p>

NBC Reporter Hypes 'Courageous' Defense of Aborting Down Syndrome Babies

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 01:25
<p>On Friday, NBC's Ken Dilanian praised Washington Post editor Ruth Marcus on Twitter for her "courageous" column that defended the "right" of women to abort their unborn babies if they have Down syndrome. Dilanian underlined his agreement with Marcus after another Twitter user cited how his child has the genetic condition: "And you made the right choice for you—a choice to be celebrated and respected...She [Marcus] is affirming her legal right to make a different choice for her own family."</p>

Bill Maher on Trump's North Korea Gambit: 'So Crazy It Just Might Work'

Sun, 03/11/2018 - 01:19
<p>Chances are slim that comic Bill Maher, who rarely misses a chance to skewer President Trump with a vengeance, will ever convert to Trumpism. But as of last night, Maher was not nearly as much of a critic.</p> <p>On the day following stunning news that Trump had accepted an invitation to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, Maher bolted from the liberal media herd that largely downplayed the development and dismissed its significance.</p>

Jake Tapper Highlights Farrakhan Outrage as Rest of Media Snoozes

Sat, 03/10/2018 - 21:00
<p>God bless Jake Tapper. The other day, NewsBusters reported: "CNN’s Jake Tapper Breaks Through Media Blackout, Covers Louis Farrakhan Controversy." Tapper noted that “despite the anti-Semitism and homophobia inherent in that clip, several leaders of the Women’s March were — are supporters of Farrakhan and have not condemned him” plus “[m]embers of the Congressional Black Caucus.”</p> <p> </p>

Whitewater Crook Susan McDougal Oozes on MSNBC: Clintons Never Did Anything Wrong

Sat, 03/10/2018 - 20:04
<p>In the wake of Sam Nunberg's bizarre cable-news crusade insisting Trump was guilty of something on Monday evening, MSNBC touted an interview Tuesday with Susan McDougal, as an expert on not testifying to special counsels. MSNBC host Craig Melvin called her “The former Clinton business partner who was jailed for refusing to comply with a subpoena during the Whitewater investigation.” Not "the former Clinton business partner convicted on four counts of fraud and conspiracy."</p>
