Brzezinski Slams CNN and Buzzfeed
For Letting ‘Their Bias Get in the
Way’ With Russia Reports

Mediaite, by J.D. Durkin

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/11/2017 9:10:08 AM

MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Wednesday has been wrestling with how to handle unverified reports that surfaced in the media yesterday evening, and cohost Mika Brzezinski called out two key media outlets for taking part in what she calls the same sort of behavior that many wrongly engaged with before the election. Before President Barack Obama gave his farewell address in Chicago Tuesday night, there was a dizzying array of reports regarding President-elect Donald Trump and his connections to Russia. First, it a four-byline story from CNN: “Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him,” from Evan

Comments:
I am sure no fan of Mika´s but I have to give her credit for speaking out. This all stinks so badly that it takes your breath away. Buzzfeed has always been a joke but Jake Tapper should know better. He should be fired for running with such a horrific, unconfirmed story. This is only going to help Trump.

This, as far as I can tell, is the pinnacle of CNN journalistic ethics. It only gets worse. CNN is nothing but a propaganda entertainment show (and not very good at that). As always, consider the source.

When bias takes an active role in destruction, there should be a heavy price to pay.

Suddenly remembered where I´ve heard this sort of thing before.

Story is Lyndon Johnson was involved in a tight race in Texas. He told his advisors to start spreading the rumor that his opponent, a pig farmer, enjoyed carnal knowledge of his barnyard sows.

The advisor said, "What? There´s no way people will believe something like that!"

LBJ: "I know that. But let´s make the S.O.B. have to DENY it!"

A media outlet that knowingly presents FALSE news as real news should be punished. There is NO journalistic integrity any longer. They are treasonous scum.

Liberal News Site Publishes
Obituary Attacking Alan Colmes
Washington Free Beacon, by Andrew Kugle    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/24/2017 7:35:56 PM     Post Reply
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

NY Times Oscar Ad: ‘The Truth
Is More Important Than Ever’
NewsBusters, by Kyle Drennen    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/24/2017 1:37:52 PM     Post Reply
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.

CPAC organizers confiscate Russian
flags emblazoned with Trump´s name

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,

Obama revamp of federal bureaucracy
created ´widespread´ security policies
violations, watchdog says
Fox News, by George Russell    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/24/2017 10:13:23 AM     Post Reply
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

Tucker Carlson -VS- DNC Senior
Adviser “I’m Every Woman Argument”…
Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/24/2017 9:25:30 AM     Post Reply
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

Billionaire Pritzker Tells Men to Use
Women’s Bathrooms to Protest Trump
Washington Free Beacon, by Bill McMorris    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/23/2017 10:15:03 PM     Post Reply
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.

Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, had an unfortunate turn of phrase the other day. She said it’s the mission of the press to “control exactly what people think.” My suspicion is that this was less a Freudian slip than a simple slip-up. Brzezinski was referring to her fear that President Trump may be trying to control the way people think by discrediting the media — whom he calls “enemies of the American people” — and she lost her rhetorical footing, stumbling into saying that mind control is “our job.” But the misstatement resonated with a lot of people,

An upbeat Hillary Clinton popped back into the political spotlight Friday with a three-minute address to Democrats, applauding them for being the ´resistance´ against President Donald Trump. She urged her party to ´keep fighting and keep the faith,´ while adding, ´I´ll be there right with you every step of the way.´ Clinton´s message was released in conjunction with the Democrats´ meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, where they´ll decide new Democratic National Committee leadership tomorrow. But Clinton´s frequent forays back into the limelight suggest she could still write another political chapter post-2016. She´s called out the new president several times on Twitter, writing simply ´3-0´

Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted on Thursday that a full repeal and replace of Obamacare is “not going to happen.” Boehner, who resigned in 2015 amid unrest among conservatives, said at an Orlando health care conference that the idea that a repeal-and-replace plan would blitz through Congress is just “happy talk.” Instead, he said changes to former President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement would likely be relatively modest. “[Congressional Republicans are] going to fix Obamacare – I shouldn’t call it repeal-and-replace, because it’s not going to happen,” he said. Boehner’s comments come as Republican lawmakers across the country are facing angry constituents

The White House blocked a number of news outlets from covering spokesman Sean Spicer’s question-and-answer session on Friday afternoon. Spicer decided to hold an off-camera “gaggle” with reporters inside his West Wing office instead of the traditional on-camera briefing in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room. Among the outlets not permitted to cover the gaggle were news organizations President Trump has singled out for criticism, including CNN. The New York Times, The Hill, Politico, BuzzFeed, the Daily Mail, BBC, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Daily News were among the other news organizations not permitted to attend.

Why Did Greenland’s Vikings Vanish?

On the grassy slope of a fjord near the southernmost tip of Greenland stand the ruins of a church built by Viking settlers more than a century before Columbus sailed to the Americas. The thick granite-block walls remain intact, as do the 20-foot-high gables. The wooden roof, rafters and doors collapsed and rotted away long ago. Now sheep come and go at will, munching wild thyme where devout Norse Christian converts once knelt in prayer. The Vikings called this fjord Hvalsey, which means “Whale Island” in Old Norse. It was here that Sigrid Bjornsdottir wed Thorstein Olafsson on Sunday, September

An image of White House advisor Stephen Miller is making the rounds on the internet — and it allegedly shows him making the “white power” hand gesture on live TV. Except, as Mediaite so eloquently pointed out, he was just fixing his tie before appearing on “Face the Nation.” Take a look at the picture in question: (Tweet/Photo) DailyKOS made a point on February 21 to insist that Miller is a white supremacist and that his gesture was some sort of anti-Semitic, “white power” shout out. Here´s their reasoning behind such a strong accusation. The right hand, on top, is
