In a fascinating retort by the NYT to the story of the day, namely the CNN-BuzzFeed narrative based on an unverified 35-page memo allegedly prepared by a UK intelligence officer, even the paper of record takes the two media outlets to town, and in an article titled "BuzzFeed Posts Unverified Claims on Trump, Stirring Debate" essentially accuses them of doing what CNN has accused so much of the ´alternative media´ in doing when distributing "fake news." Here are the key excerpts: The reports by CNN and Buzzfeed sent other news organizations, including The New York Times and The Washington Post,
Comments: You know it´s really, really bad when the NYT is calling them out for fake news. If even they didn´t buy into it you know there´s something really wrong about this. People should be fired for this outrageous, defamatory behavior!
It is absolutely hilarious that the disgraced presstitute Julia Ioffe -- she of the "incest with Ivanka" slur -- now sanctimoniously says "Raise your hand if you too were approached with this story." If the enemedia had any integrity, they would both identify the "MI6" author of the "dossier" and disclose who has been trying for months and months to peddle this fake news to them. Don´t hold your breath.
A very OLD Supreme Court decision forbad taxation of the press stating, ´the power to tax is the power to destroy´. But that rightfully was an expression of First Amendment rights belonging to the press. This current ´fake news´ political abuse of that privilege should rightfully be called entertainment. If a news outlet cannot back up its content it should be taxed the same as movies or comic books. THAT would quickly restore responsible behavior to our ´free press´.
The liberal-leaning news site Slate published an obituary Thursday attacking former Fox News contributor Alan Colmes. Colmes passed away on Thursday at the age of 66 after a battle with an illness. (Snip) Fox News honored Colmes with a touching tribute. Slate took a different approach when remembering Colmes. Its obituary was titled, "Alan Colmes, Buffoon and Patsy, Was Fox News´ Original Liberal Weakling." The article attacked Colmes for being the "nice liberal" on Fox News. Colmes was the most absurd, useless, and mocked television personality in America for many years, precisely because he was nice. In the context of
On Thursday, The New York Times launched a new marketing campaign by releasing a TV ad set to air during Sunday’s Academy Awards with the tag line, “The truth is more important than ever,” seemingly taking a jab at President Donald Trump. Given the paper’s blatant liberal bias and willingness to report fake news stories, the notion of the Times being the arbiter of the “truth” is laughable.

Organizers at the conference where President Trump spoke Friday confiscated Russian flags with Trump´s name on them that were handed out before his speech. Photos from the Conservative Political Action Conference showed Russian flags with "Trump" in the middle blue stripe being waved by people in the crowd as Trump spoke. The flags were handed out before the speech but were confiscated while the speech took place. Reports from the conference indicated organizers told people with the flags that if they were seen waving them during Trump´s speech they would be kicked out of the conference. One of the activists,
One of former President Barack Obama’s pet projects -- to drag federal bureaucracy into the digital age -- morphed into a rogue operation that disregarded information security policies, used unauthorized software and information systems on government networks, and exposed sensitive information to potential hackers, according to a watchdog report. Many of the most egregious security violations took place long after the Obama administration’s 2014 admission of one of the worst cyber-security losses in history: the theft by China-based intruders of 4.2 million personnel files from its Office of Personnel Management -- a revelation that set off a wide-ranging review of
Zac Petkanas, Democrat National Committee Senior Adviser, appeared on Tucker Carlson’s TV show to explain the DNC position that a persons gender is what they say it is. The argument is fraught with downstream impact, because if a person’s gender is what they say it is at any given moment in time – then there’s immediately no such thing as Sexism or gender driven ERA laws. You cannot be sued for hiring all males, because some of those males can instantaneously be women, and you’re not allowed to ask about their gender when hiring…. because it’s a protected category… see where
A billionaire Democratic megadonor, who is exploring a run for governor, encouraged men to use women´s bathrooms on Wednesday sparking criticism from transgender advocates and politicians. J.B. Pritzker, the billionaire heir whose father co-founded Hyatt hotels, floated the idea of switching bathrooms in the wake of President Donald Trump´s executive order reversing an Obama policy that could have stripped federal funds from schools that maintain separate bathroom facilities based on sex. "As a protest against Trump´s rescinding protections for trans kids, everyone should use the other gender´s bathroom today!" he tweeted at 8:36 a.m. (Snip) The tweet immediately provoked criticism from liberals.
According to an exclusive in Us Weekly, Hillary Clinton was approached about being on Dancing with the Stars‘s 24th season. The Democratic former nominee for president declined the offer, although her shimmy would have undoubtedly won her the popular vote.

California Gov. Jerry Brown urged lawmakers to provide the funds needed to increase flood protection following the Orville dam fracture. Following heavy winter rains in the state, Brown said $437 million is needed for flood-related projects. During a press conference in Sacramento on Friday, he asked lawmakers in Washington to approve $387 million in water bond money, with the remaining $50 million coming from existing general fund money. "The recent storms have had a real impact," he said. "We´ve got dam spillways eroding. We´ve got roadways crumbling. We have aging infrastructure and it´s maxed out." The $387 million would be
WASHINGTON — Democrats have invited immigrants and foreigners to President Donald Trump´s first address to Congress in an effort to put a face on those who could be hurt by the Republican´s policies. Lawmakers typically get one guest ticket apiece for presidential addresses, as they will for Tuesday´s prime-time speech, and the invites often go to family, friends or someone from back home. To send a message to Trump, Democrats have invited the Iraqi-American doctor who discovered elevated levels of lead in the blood of many children living in Flint, Michigan; a Pakistani-born doctor who delivers critical care to patients
Former NAACP branch president Rachel Dolezal, who lied about being black but still identifies as black, is now jobless, living on food stamps and expects to lose her home next month. “There’s no protected class for me,” the former NAACP branch president told The Guardian. “I’m this generic, ambiguous scapegoat for white people to call me a race traitor and take out their hostility on. And I’m a target for anger and pain about white people from the black community. It’s like I am the worst of all these worlds.” Dolezal has applied for over 100 jobs, but has received no offers,
President Donald Trump has announced that he will not be attending the White House Correspondents´ Dinner this year in a shocking break with tradition. ´I will not be attending the White House Correspondents´ Association dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!´ Trump tweeted on Saturday afternoon. His announcement comes amid growing tensions between his administration and media outlets. Trump attended the dinner in 2011 with his wife Melania where he was repeatedly mocked by then-president Barack Obama. He skipped the dinner in 2016 during the presidential campaign where Obama again took aim at the then-candidate, saying: ´I´m a little
Oscar night is on us and perennial nominee Meryl Streep is back in the news again, whining. It wasn´t enough that she sang for her supper with a long-winded, cliche-filled diatribe against Donald Trump at the Golden Globes earlier this month, repeating every leftist canard, hitting every touchstone. Now she´s gotten into a fight over evening gowns with leading Parisian designer Karl Lagerfeld, who is well-known for having a politically conservative streak. It´s a he-said, she-said controversy. Last week, Lagerfeld accused Streep of being ´cheap´ for refusing to wear one of his gowns at the Oscars, on the grounds that she
Churches across the US are fighting back against the Trump administration’s mandate to ramp up deportations with new sanctuary practices of their own, using private homes in their congregations as shelter and potentially creating a modern-day underground railroad to ferry undocumented immigrants from house to house or into Canada. Church leaders from California to Illinois and New York told BuzzFeed News they’re willing to take their sanctuary operations for undocumented immigrants underground should federal immigration authorities, emboldened by Trump’s recent directives to take a harder line on deportations, ignore precedent and raid their campuses. “We’re willing to take that risk
Last Sunday Chelsea Clinton, usually such a reticent public figure, took to Times Square with her 2-year-old daughter, Charlotte, to march in the Muslim solidarity rally. “Thank you to all who organized #IAmAMuslimToo today — Charlotte’s 1st protest rally. #NoBanNoWallNoRaids,” she tweeted. Chelsea’s also promoting her new, co-authored book “Governing Global Health,” with a soft-focus Q&A in the Sunday New York Times and an eight-city tour in April. It’s a more high-profile push than the one for her last, a 2015 YA book called “It’s Your World,” which focused on low-key school visits — exercising, perhaps, an abundance of caution during her
