WashPost´s Wemple Lectures: Never, Ever
Say Trump Gave a ´Pitch Perfect´ Speech!
Newsbusters, by Tim Graham    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 10/3/2017 12:11:10 AM     Post Reply
In the Republican half of America, CNN has been viewed as a relentless source of negative coverage of President Trump. But liberal journalists get upset when CNN somehow breaks from its usual stance and says something nice….even after a horrific mass shooting. CNN anchor John King called Trump’s speech to the nation on Monday morning to be “pitch perfect” for the situation. Washington Post media blogger Erik Wemple angrily denounced this phrasing in a post headlined “’Pitch perfect’: CNN scrambles to glorify Trump’s Las Vegas speech.” Wemple used terms like “glorify” to describe fairly qualified praise, and oddly claimed CNN

He liked to bet big, wagering tens of thousands of dollars in a sitting. He owned homes in four states but preferred staying in casino hotels, sometimes for weeks at a time, as he worked the gambling machines. (Snip)In the final years of his life, Stephen Paddock was living out his retirement in quiet obscurity. He liked country music, relatives said, and went to concerts like the Route 91 Harvest festival where he killed so many Sunday night. He was worth more than $2 million, relatives said. Before retiring, he made a small fortune from real estate deals and a business that

Nude Sculpture Four Stories Tall
Planned for National Mall

Activists are working to bring a steel sculpture of a 45-foot-tall nude woman to Washington, where she will temporarily face the White House from a perch on the National Mall. Transporting the sculpture from its home in San Francisco will be an undertaking, but its artist, Marco Cochrane, said he saw it as an opportunity to start a conversation about violence against women. His creation, called R-Evolution, depicts a short-haired, nude woman standing in mountain pose — a yoga posture chosen by the sculpture’s model, the singer and songwriter Deja Solis. The sculpture invites viewers to imagine a world where



Trump’s Right: His Media
Coverage Is Mostly Negative

President Donald Trump frequently complains about media coverage of his administration, and a study released Monday confirms his suspicion: Most of it has been negative. The Pew Research Center, in a content analysis of the early days of the Trump presidency, found that 62 percent of the coverage was negative and only 5 percent was positive. In contrast, President Barack Obama´s coverage in early 2009 was 42 percent positive and 20 percent negative, the study said. Among recent presidents, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush had higher negative than positive coverage early in their administrations, but not nearly to Trump´s

Hillary Clinton said Monday that congressional Republicans and the National Rifle Association are complicit in the United States´ gun violence epidemic after a lone gunman slain 59 people at a country music festival in Las Vegas. Clinton then said "of course they are" when asked by host Igor Volsky, the vice president of progressive think tank Center for American Progress, whether those parties were "complicit" in the "gun epidemic." "It is a sign of the deep dysfunction of this government and this Republican Party that has been taken over by extreme elements to the point that they are doing whatever

The Las Vegas shooter spent his last minutes desperately firing through the doorway of his hotel room while the SWAT team stormed into the suite. Stephen Paddock shot one security guard and fired on a SWAT team of six who searched the hotel floor-by-floor Sunday night before zeroing in on their target. “We believe the individual killed himself prior to our entry,” Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said. “A SWAT team broke down the door to the hotel room. ” Paddock had killed 59 and wounded more than 500 others when he opened fire on people enjoying a music concert across from

On Sunday night a crazed shooter slaughtered over 58 people at a Las Vegas country music festival. Another 500 people were injured. A gunman opened fire on the crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival next to the Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas. (Photo) An hour before the worst mass shooting in US history the audience was singing “God Bless America.” Sean Hannity interviewed Big Kenny and Kaya Jones tonight after the massacre.

Appearing on Monday’s Today, former NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw predictably used the tragic shooting in Las Vegas as an excuse to push the gun control agenda even as the police were still in the early stages of the investigation. “Well, I think this is time for a national dialogue that we can have in a calm and reasoned way in which the country can figure out how come we have so many mass shootings in this country,” the special correspondent proclaimed. Discussing the type of weapon shooter Stephen Paddock used to launch the heinous attack, Brokaw ranted: “Where did

CNN Stereotypes Country Music
Fans as ´Trump Supporters´

Amidst microphone issues at CNN, the home studio was able to communicate with Jeff Zeleny at the White House. He said of the victims of the Las Vegas shooting, "A lot of these country music supporters were likely Trump supporters." Firstly, why does that matter? The worst mass shooting in American history -- what does it matter whom they voted for in 2016?!? But also, is that true? What makes him think that this stereotype is correct? We´re sure that CNN was saying it as something derogatory-- like, these brainwashed rednecks all backed Trump. But it can also be redirected as

Cops backing off busts in
South Bronx to avoid lawsuits
New York Post, by Shawn Cohen and Bruce Golding    Original Article

Cops in some crime-ridden South Bronx neighborhoods have all but abandoned aggressive or intuitive policing — to avoid getting sued or otherwise derailing their careers, officers admitted to The Post. The dangerous hands-off approach in the NYPD’s 42nd Precinct is reflected in official crime statistics, which show that shootings are up dramatically there. "Usually, when you have people peddling hard drugs, you have guns nearby, inside a car or an apartment," a precinct cop said. But instead of being "proactive" in such cases, "I try to minimize incidents where I can get in trouble," the officer said.

Israel Takes On the Shia Crescent

Despite Israel´s repeated warnings, Barack Obama´s reckless appeasement of the Iranian regime has enabled its rise as a hegemonic threat in the Middle East region as well as a threat to international peace and security. In 2009, Obama turned his back on millions of dissidents in the streets of Tehran and other Iranian cities, who were peacefully protesting the rigged election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as president. In 2011, Obama precipitously removed the remaining U.S. combat troops from Iraq, giving rise to ISIS’s re-emergence in Iraq from its bases in Syria. The radical Shiite Iranian regime purported to come to the

We may have an answer to the question I asked this morning. The Wall Street Journal reported hours ago that cops found 18-20 guns in Paddock’s hotel suite at Mandalay Bay, “some fully automatic.” That seems hard to believe, though. Automatic weapons are exceptionally difficult to come by and are almost never used by criminals. Said one gun expert to NBC, “Most big city police departments, if you asked them the last time they had a crime where a fully automatic weapon was used, most will say they don’t know of any.” If Paddock had even one, it would be

Legendary rocker Tom Petty remains in the hospital “clinging onto life,” according to TMZ. He isn’t expected to live much longer. The 66-year-old singer and songwriter was rushed to the UCLA Santa Monica Hospital Sunday night after being found unconscious and not breathing in his Malibu home. He suffered from a heart attack, according to TMZ. He was placed on life support but has been removed after he had no brain activity, TMZ reported. A chaplain has been called to Petty’s room, and the family has a do not resuscitate order on him. Conflicting reports on Monday said the singer

Roger Goodell: Worst NFL

Roger Goodell may go down as the worst NFL commissioner in history. He screwed the pooch on the concussion issue when, during his congressional testimony, he could not answer whether concussions hurt football players. He is in the process of doing the same regarding NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem. On Friday, President Trump said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say get that son of a b**** off the field right now, out, he’s fired, he’s fired.” The smart move for Goodell after Trump castigated the NFL would have been

Trump won’t swallow Erekat’s

Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Secretary-General Saeb Erekat has managed to grab international headlines to promote yet another PLO canard regarding the 100 years old Jewish-Arab conflict. Unabashedly and unashamedly Erekat has declared: “Israel is internationally recognised as the occupying power over 100 percent of Palestine, including in and around occupied East Jerusalem” Yet according to Article 2 of the PLO Charter - Jordan is the occupying power over 78% of Palestine. “Palestine, with the boundaries it had during the British Mandate, is an indivisible territorial unit.” The British Mandate for Palestine between 1920 and 1946 encompassed what is today called: Israel (17%), Jordan (78%), Judea and Samaria



Aldean’s Army

The smell of cordite and the stench of blood — to use the famous phrase — was still over Las Vegas when a reference to Aldean’s Army showed up in dispatches. We first read it in James Freeman’s column — “Americans Under Fire” — in the online Wall Street Journal, which linked to an editorial of earlier today in Chicago Tribune. It referred to the courage of those who had come to hear country crooner Jason Aldean, who has long described his fans as the Aldean Army. An apt metaphor. Their courage under fire will be talked about for years to

An eco-terrorist charged with trying to sabotage part of the Dakota Access Pipeline says he will appeal to the jury to validate his terrorism by asking them to accept his "act of conscience." Michael Foster will claim that the fossil fuel companies are destroying the Earth and that sabotaging the pipeline was a "necessity." (Snip) Foster´s act was not just an attack on a private company. His beloved environment would have been severely damaged if he had been successful. It points to the total incoherence of the thinking of many greens, who believe that the Earth is so fragile that a

The worst kind of fight in one in which you wish for both sides’ demise. Whatever satisfaction you get from watching one foe whipped is instantly tempered by the victor’s success. It’s a no-win situation. Watching Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg defend his digital empire before menacing lawmakers was one such brawl. In early September, Facebook disclosed that it had suspended hundreds of accounts associated with a St. Petersburg-based website that dispensed pro-Kremlin propaganda. The long-held suspicion that Putin operatives attempted to influence the 2016 election was confirmed. Then the levee broke. With appetites whetted with the possibility of finally cutting the social

Heather said Melton gave his life to save hers. “At this point, I’m in complete disbelief and despair. I don’t know what to say. Sonny was the most kind-hearted, loving man I have ever met.

After initially declaring it would no longer show the national anthem on Monday Night Football, ESPN has reversed course and decided that air the singing of the anthem. The network cites the shooting in Las Vegas, as the reason behind the move. ESPN was set to follow in the footsteps of Fox Sports, which decided to go back to its previous habit of running commercials during the time the national anthem is played in the stadium at the start of each NFL game. However, after the shooting at Mandalay Bay, the network changed its mind: (Tweet) One report even claimed

When I was fourteen or sixteen – pardon me, but I don’t remember precisely, nor did these things make any impression in the international mainstream media – mom and I went to what was probably an illegal demonstration in downtown Porto, Portugal. No, I am not sure if it was illegal, or even honestly what the demonstration was for. Around that time it might have been for anything, including in support of whatever was the most right-wing candidate available. (Don’t get excited. It was never further to the right than social democrat, and at one time it was the socialist candidate.) What

WASHINGTON – Gun-control advocate and former astronaut Mark Kelly, the husband of former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.), said on Capitol Hill today that President Trump’s message of “thoughts and prayers” for the families of the victims affected by the Las Vegas shooting is insufficient to stop gun violence. “What we’re hearing today at the Capitol and the White House are thoughts and prayers. Thoughts and prayers are important. We send our thoughts and prayers, too, but they are not enough. Your thoughts and prayers aren’t going to stop the next shooting,” Kelly said alongside Giffords during a press conference. “Only action
