Media fake news is everywhere. No, the new health care bill does not treat rape as a pre-existing condition and Republicans did not celebrate its passage with beer. The latest media outrage is driven by a Washington Post story about intelligence disclosures based on claims by anonymous sources. The Post’s big hit pieces are mainly based on anonymous sources. Its latest hit piece runs a quote from, “a former senior U.S. official who is close to current administration officials.” That’s an anonymous source quoting hearsay from other anonymous sources. This isn’t journalism. It’s a joke. Last week, the Washington Post
Comments: Emmanuel Goldstein would be so proud. The enemies of the American people aren´t even trying to hide it anymore.
Doubtless 99% of the media are liberal, left, or far left--but that´s not all of the story. Newspapers are DYING. Even online. Anyone younger than a baby boomer gets their news from a newsfeed, and then only clicks if the picture is interesting or the headline outrageous. Journalism has been reduced to sensationalism, political propaganda and click bait. And because this afternoon´s sensational propaganda is stale by mid-evening, more must be ginned up to feed the public´s ADD-short attention span. People don´t know how to think for themselves any longer. For that we can thank the demise of the family, the welfare system, and a politicized, nationalized, value-less education system--all gifts from our federal government.
Personally, I won´t go to the NYT or WaPo web site stories, or buy either one of them on the stand, until they try to kick their credibility up a notch by publishing stories about Bigfoot, alien abductions, and secret JFK assassins.
Maybe the leaker isn´t a person. Maybe it is a well-disguised gift left behind at by the former occupant. I recall no leaks when POTUS has met with the Chinese or conducted top personnel interviews at Mar-a-Lago.
As Dick Morris pointed out in a column published yesterday, President Trump is being tried by a form of a kangaroo court—no names, no evidence, just innuendo by today’s unscrupulous so-called journalists. A trusted friend and journalist rightfully states that the media today are corrupt—they abuse their press access, turning it against President Trump by twisting his words shamefully. Press conferences did not exist until FDR’s presidency so Newt Gingrich may be wise in suggesting closure of the White House press briefing room.
The msm are playing with fire because sane people no longer put any credence in their opinions—they cry wolf too often. Should there come a day when there is an honest-to-goodness crisis that should be heeded by the public, and the public dismisses yet another sensational “story,” and people suffer for it, the msm will own the disaster.
RushLimbaugh proffered two days ago, daily, a so-called major event involving President Trump breaks at 5:30PM so the msm television anchors can begin their evening broadcasts with yet another “breaking news” story. Contrived,malicious,unconscionable,despicable barely begin to describe the Left’s behavior/agenda.
Even Fox News is putting out fake news adverse to President Trump,with Sandra Smith stating this morning that Donald Trump tweeted that he was against Robert Muller being appointed as Special Counsel. I don´t believe that was a true statement as what Trump said was that he believed that the Special Counsel investigation would be a witch hunt as he had nothing to do with the Russians, and that his tweeting never mentioned him being against Robert Mueller´s appointment.
Anonymous "news" or information should NEVER be believed. Everyone has a right to question their accuser. It´s too bad this forgotten with Nixon. I do firmly believe there was no "deep throat". That´s a cowards way of doing things.
Your right to free speech has been endangered by an unexpected source, Congressional Republicans. Recently introduced, H.R. 257, postures itself as a bill to combat hate crimes, but in reality, achieves nothing but potentially eroding our first amendment rights. The United States already has strict laws on the books that protect against hate crimes, so one reasonably asks, “why do we need this new resolution?” Yes, this particular legislation is merely a “resolution” or a formal statement by a legislative body, but might the continued discussion of this matter really seek to prepare us to slowly move toward the next step in the
Tuesday at a joint news conference with Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri, President Donald Trump said the U.S. military has been beating back ISIS adding, they’ve made more progress “in the last four or five months” than “the previous administration made in eight years.” Trump said, “Well, we are helping. One of the things that we have made tremendous strides at is getting rid of ISIS. We have generals that don’t like to talk. They like to do. We were with general Mattis last night. The success they’ve had against ISIS extraordinary. We’ve made more progress in the last four or
On Monday, the Democrats were really excited about their new slogan, “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages.” Widely ridiculed for being idiotic, here’s a slogan they could have chosen, which is much more honest about the current liberal agenda: “A Bully’s Deal: If You Ever Think For Yourself and Don’t Conform, We’ll Ruin Your Life.” This slogan has been operational for a generation. It is shouted at conservative women, gays and other minorities because, you see, today’s Democrats cannot afford to have anyone in any of their protected classes get the idea that they can think for themselves. What
As readers of PJ Media´s daily feature, Hot Mic, are aware, I´m not a big fan of Amazon. In the guise of ease, efficiency and allegedly low prices, it´s crushing the life out of the retail section in the United States, demolishing bookstores, big-box stores, department stores, grocery stores, record stores, and even smaller retail outlets, putting small businessmen, struggling authors and garage bands out of business. In so doing, it´s also killing job prospects for entry-level workers who might actually not want to work at McDonald´s. In their place, it offers you Alexa, your very own electronic monitor and spy,
What difference does it make? Bad ideas work their way back to worse premises. The ‘worse premise’ of the bad idea of NeverTrump was that it didn’t really matter if Hillary won. It was an echo of Hillary’s infamous Benghazi testimony. What difference does it make anyway if the woman behind the Arab Spring were running our foreign policy and if the Clinton Foundation’s gallery of rogue donors were running everything else? It sure as hell didn’t make a difference to NeverTrumpers who were too busy grading Trump on table manners and finding implausible reasons to believe that President Hillary
If any doubts remained that the Fox News channel is continuing to swerve from its conservative roots, they were erased on July 16, 2017 when Ezekiel Emanuel, M.D., a principal architect of Obamacare and a barely hinged spin doctor for the Democrat socialist left, appeared on the channel’s signature weekly program Fox News Sunday in his new role as a paid contributor. During the program, the ever arrogant Emanuel jumped on the Resist Trump bandwagon and suggested that President Trump is worthy of being impeached. Hired last February primarily as a health policy analyst (he is a physician and professor,
President Donald Trump may not be in the White House had former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin not blazed the trail for him. This week, Bernie Quigley observed that Palin “was prelude and harbinger” to Trump’s arrival. He wrote in The Hill that he was reading William Strauss and Neil Howe’s The Fourth Turning when Palin appeared on the national stage. And he said then that “it was possible to see the rise of new political archetypes and forms and they are now upon us.” “It was not President Donald Trump that brought the age, although he turned the key. It was Palin.
On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz employed Pakistani IT staffers and brothers who were paid over $4 million dollars over the course of their employment even though they were accused of a cyber-security breach. Imran Awan was arrested as he attempted to flee the U.S. after wiring approximately $300,000 to Pakistan. Fox News is the only cable network covering this huge scandal. When Imran Awan was arrested he was carrying $12,000 in cash on him. His wife was carrying $12,000 of cash when she fled the country too. Imran and his Muslim brothers, Abid and Jamal accessed unauthorized computers while acting as IT
Hillary Clinton is to call her new memoir about being beaten by Donald Trump ´What Happened´, her publisher announced Thursday. Her photograph will not feature on the cover - and she will call herself Hillary Rodham Clinton. She ran as Hillary Clinton. The memoir, published by Simon & Schuster promises to deliver the story of her defeat ´now free from the constraints of politics´. It will finally break the pattern of months by containing details of her ´mistakes´ - but firmly blame James Comey and the Russians. One friend of Clinton told The Hill it would be a ´bombshell´. The
President Trump responded to the Senate Republican´s inability to pass a skinny version of Obamacare´s repeal the only way he knows how: Twitter. (Tweet) Senate Republicans weren´t able to muster enough votes to pass their skinny repeal of Obamacare. Senators voted 49-51 shortly before 2:00 a.m. Friday morning. Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) cast a surprise "no" vote. He was joined by GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Susan Collins (Maine). The bill, titled the Health Care Freedom Act, would have repealed the individual insurance mandate. It would also have repealed the employer mandate for eight years.
What would you conclude if you voted for a candidate or a party because of a promise to repeal or change a law that you strongly felt was harmful and unjust, but once in office the party refused to do it? You might conclude, rightly, that those politicians didn’t really work for you, and the party didn’t care what you thought. That’s precisely the message Republicans have been sending their constituents throughout the Obamacare repeal fiasco. The failure of Senate Republicans to pass a so-called “skinny repeal” in the early hours of Friday is merely the latest instance of GOP
During a press conference on Friday, Senate Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) praised Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Susan Collins (R-ME) for their votes against the skinny Obamacare repeal and stated McCain’s vote showed the same courage he showed during his service in the Vietnam War. Schumer said that he and McCain “have been friends for a very long time, ever since the Gang of Eight, which we put together. And I have not seen a senator who speaks truth to power as strongly, as well, and as frequently as John McCain. The very same courage
WASHINGTON -- The senator who was defeated by President Obama in his 2008 quest for the White House stepped in to cast the deciding vote to kill Senate Republicans´ last-gasp effort to repeal Obama´s signature healthcare legislation before the summer recess. Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) were expected to vote against the "skinny repeal" -- a bare-bones repeal of only the individual and employer mandates as well as the medical device tax; the latter has drawn bipartisan criticism over the years. Vice President Mike Pence was at the Capitol, ready to cast a tie-breaking vote as he had to
