On Monday afternoon, some journalists provided another small nail in the coffin of the media’s credibility when they lost their collective minds on Twitter over White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders asking reporters to share what they’re most thankful for this Thanksgiving week. Sanders still allowed reporters to ask questions and most responded with thoughtful answers, but a few ignored it (including the Associated Press’s Zeke Miller and Washington Post’s Jenna Johnson). For some journalists on Twitter, they lambasted Sanders for her “bizarre” exercise that one labeled “harmful to a democracy.” NPR’s Domenico Montanaro was the most offended, showcasing
I am thankful for the internet and sites like lucianne.com because I am not forced to get my news fom these arrogant snot-nosed liberal freaks who have the nerve to call themselves journalists. They could never come close to having as much contempt for me as I have for them.
The media hates to be exposed for the truly deplorable people that they are.
This is a National holiday for the best country on the planet. If these sleazy reporters are so unhappy, maybe they should move to Venezuela where the type of government is more to their liking. They can settle down to a meal of dog and be really thankful.
I am thankful that these fools can no longer claim to be unbiased reporters since they have exuberantly outed themselves.
If the so-called journalists didn´t want to participate they didn´t have to (even though Sanders humorously shamed Zeke Miller), but I find it very telling when some of them choose to respond on Twitter with snide and snarky comments. Really people, get over yourselves.
The Media has nothing to be thankful for because they realize they SUCK! Have a Happy Thanksgiving you liberal Grinch Turkey necks. I would hate to sit across from any of these gold hearted Bas*ards at a Thanksgiving Dinner.
I am thankful that Trump tweets directly to the people, and the left stream media is no longer able to filter and twist the sentiments of the President. Trump has beaten the left stream media, and they hate him for it.
Mrs. Sanders on the holiday of Thanksgiving we the people of America are thankful and wish to spend the time being happy with our families. As Press Secretary under President Trump you have asked the wrong question to a group of hateful misfits that really don´t want you or President Trump in the White House. They are not and will never be ´thankful´ for anything unless it´s the destruction of America. Their happy, joyous time was eight years with Obama which is over. You should have simply dismissed the hateful beings and let them go to their office and tweet their snide ungrateful remarks because you or we will never please them. They are nothing.
Normal people hate the media, and let me count the reasons: The media cow-towed to Obama for 8 years while he led this nation to bad behavior; the media sided with Bill Clinton when he did the sexually unspeakable; the media writes negative things about our legally elected President all day and all night, etc. etc. etc.
These people are on a lifetime mission to destroy this country and with Trump´s election, they are losing. Normal Americans are hated.
These are deeply evil people who have, many of them, dedicated their lives to the cause of destroying the America that most of us have loved. No humor,no normal thoughts, no pleasantry, just hatred. Nasty folks.
For journos to go off their rails over something this innocent is evidence trump Derangement Syndrome is a real mental disease. It has made these lunatics even more unbalanced. I can not imagine what it must feel like to be them. Probably something like how I felt for 8 years with that dumb butthead Obama as our President. I just didn´t let it show so much.
Former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that there’s “no legitimate” reason why the public should see her testimony about her role in tea party targeting, pleading with a judge to keep her deposition permanently sealed. Ms. Lerner and her former chief lieutenant, Holly Paz, have said they faced death threats in the past, and say they fear any more attention to their behavior would spur a new round of harassment. They said there’s “exceedingly low” public interest in having their depositions released, and they said tea party groups are pushing for disclosure out
The family of the alleged ISIS-inspired Port Authority bomber said they were “heartbroken” by the attack on Monday and blasted law enforcement agencies for what they claimed were heavy-handed tactics by investigators. “We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted at our city today and by the allegations being made against a member of our family,” said the statement read by Albert Fox Cahn, the Legal Director for the NY Chapter Council for Islamic Relations. “But we’re also outraged by the behavior of the law enforcement officials who held children as small as 4 years old out in the
GOP senatorial nominee Judge Roy Moore will throw a rally Monday night, on the eve of Election Day, in Midland City, Alabama. Breitbart News’ Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon will join Moore, as well as Sheriff David Clarke, Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and other local speakers. Moore is campaigning against Democratic nominee Doug Jones in a special election to fill U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ former Senate seat. The event is slated to begin at 7:00 p.m. ET (6:00 p.m. local).
Fox News is back in action with the single most ridiculous, psy-op engineered, agenda polls in the last several years…. and coming from a CTH community that has reviewed hundreds of media polls in the past 5 years, that’s quite a statement. Consider:(Photos) (Emerson Poll Link) -vs-(Fox News Poll Link)Both of these cannot be correct. The margin of error claimed is +/- 2.5%. There is a NINETEEN point difference between both Alabama Polls. However, only ONE is a media driven agenda poll. Can you guess which one? Yes, once again, the Rupert Murdoch clan are up to their media-polling tricks
President Trump has understandable reasons for distrusting the U.S. intelligence community, according to a former CIA official who led the agency under former President Barack Obama. Mike Morell, who served as acting director of the CIA from 2012-2013, took some of the blame for Trump’s feud with the CIA. Morell lamented that he failed to consider how Trump would consider his endorsement for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, especially when paired with other officials’ criticisms and a series of unflattering leaks. “And [Trump] could rightfully have said, ‘Huh, what’s going on with these intelligence guys?’ Right?” Morell told Politico’s Susan
A small business in Oberlin, Ohio, popular with denizens of Oberlin College is facing accusations of racism and protests after three black students were arrested November 2016 for assaulting a white shopkeeper and stealing bottles of wine. After being labeled as a “racist establishment,” by a senior dean at the college, the family owned business, Gibson’s Bakery, says it has no choice but to sue the college and Meredith Raimondo, vice president and dean of students, for slander, the Associated Press reported. The dispute happened after the 18-and-19-year-old students tried purchasing alcohol with a fake id. After the shopkeeper denied
Former President Obama and his vice president, Joe Biden, each provided last-minute help to fellow Democrat Doug Jones in Tuesday’s Alabama Senate election, but the candidate is keeping quiet about it. Obama and Biden recorded robocalls urging Alabama voters to cast ballots for Jones in his contest against Republican Roy Moore. But Jones denied knowing whose calls his campaign was placing to voters. “I don’t know what’s being used,” he told reporters on Monday. Obama could be especially helpful in motivating African Americans to vote for Jones — and against Moore, who has questioned whether the nation’s first black president was
Fearless warrior Sarah Huckabee Sanders wasn’t having it with the liberals snakes in the press pool Monday morning and blasted the fake news media. (Photo) Sarah Sanders defended President Trump for calling out the fake news media. The liars in the mainstream media have gone into high gear in the last couple weeks rolling out huge ‘bombshell’ stories that turn out to be colossal lies. This is no accident. Very fake news CNN’s Jim Acosta then comes in and claims real journalists make honest mistakes and that “doesn’t make them fake news”. Sanders responded by saying if journalists make mistakes
CNN responded on Monday to President Donald Trump’s criticism of its anchor, Don Lemon, accusing the president of setting a bad example for children. “In a world where bullies torment kids on social media to a devastating effect on a regular basis with insults and name-calling, it is sad to see our president engaging in the very same behavior himself,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement to Breitbart News. “Leaders should lead by example.” The president wrote on Twitter Monday morning that reports that he watched Lemon’s show were false. “I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called
Star political reporter Ryan Lizza is out at The New Yorker over what the magazine calls “improper sexual conduct.” “The New Yorker recently learned that Ryan Lizza engaged in what we believe was improper sexual conduct. We have reviewed the matter and, as a result, have severed ties with Lizza,” a New Yorker spokesperson said (h/t Michael Calderone). “Due to a request for privacy, we are not commenting further.” One of Lizza’s biggest scoops this year was key to deep-sixing Anthony Scaramucci’s short career as White House communications director. In a July conversation with Lizza, the Mooch ranted about his colleagues
NBC is currently in full Kill Roy Moore and Donald Trump mode. It was fascinating watching those moments from Sunday’s Meet the Press as host Chuck Todd and his one-sided panel piously blasted away at Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore and his supporters. Ann Althouse put it best, describing the whole charade as “cheesy emoting in the Theater of Sanctimony.” What struck me even more was the hypocrisy, because Todd’s own employer, NBC, has become a haven for homophobes, accused sex abusers, and their enablers. On top of that, NBC’s Megyn Kelly, who says she fled Fox News in part
Residents in a Paris neighborhood have threatened to launch a hunger strike if authorities don’t remove migrants sleeping on the streets. Locals accuse the migrants of trashing the sidewalks and harassing women. A neighborhood association has given authorities until Jan. 1 to tackle the problem before members go on a hunger strike.“The pavement is sometimes soaked in urine and the streets aren’t cleaned every day,” Pierre Vuarin, a spokesman for the neighborhood association, told The Telegraph Sunday. “Some people have sold their flats at knockdown prices and others have suffered mental breakdowns.”President Emmanuel Macron recently vowed to clear the streets
MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Frank Luntz, a GOP establishment messaging consultant, was visibly flabbergasted as every single one of his focus group participants in a Birmingham area Vice News-produced panel backed Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. Titled “Why These Alabama Voters Are Sticking By Roy Moore,” Luntz’s Vice News focus group aired on Vice News Tonight on Dec. 8 on HBO. “Are you all Christians here?” Luntz opens the seven-and-a-half-minute long segment. “Yes,” all of the focus group participants, who joined Luntz in a Birmingham area restaurant, replied. “Is Roy Moore a good Christian?” he followed up. “Yes,” one woman replied. “Absolutely,” another said. “Absolutely?”
California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars. He added that gusty winds and
An award-winning U.S. diplomat who was seen as a rising star at the State Department has issued a scathing resignation letter, accusing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Donald Trump administration of undercutting the State Department and damaging America’s influence in the world. Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,
There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most
The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans. It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes. According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for
Sen. Richard Shelby says he wants a Republican elected to the Senate on Tuesday to represent Alabama, but that he didn’t vote for GOP candidate Roy Moore in the special election. The Alabama Republican said he’s already cast his ballot, and that he chose a write-in candidate. “I’d rather see the Republican win, but I’d rather see a Republican write-in. I couldn’t vote for Roy Moore. I didn’t vote for Roy Moore,” Shelby told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” Moore has been accused of pursuing sexual relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s. In some
In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. (snip) Here is what McCaskill had to say about Kennedy´s behavior upon his death
Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for
A heartbreaking video of a young boy pleading to be left alone by bullies has gone viral and celebrities are offering him their support.Keaton Jones, of Knoxville, Tennessee, asked his mother, Kimberly Jones, a question that so many people would like the answer too. ´Just out of curiosity, why do they bully? What´s the point of it? Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them,´ Keaton asked his mother through tears. ´It´s not okay,´ he said. (Video/Photos) His mother then asked: ´What did they say to you?´ ´They make fun
The rules of interaction between women and men in the workplace have been changed with a suddenness that inevitably produces unforeseen negative consequences, no matter how positive and necessary the switch might be. (snip) With the stakes so high, given the presumption of female veracity and male culpability anytime an objection is raised, men are, frankly, terrified. Get used to it, ladies. That is the other side of the coin of the new normal. The old norms that men (often cluelessly) incorporated into their behavior now have been discarded, but we have no clear understanding of what should replace them. By
A suspect is in custody following an explosion at one of New York City’s busiest transit hubs in Times Square during Monday morning’s rush hour, police said. The bombing suspect was identified as Akayed Ullah, 27, according to New York Police Commissioner James O’Neill. Ullah had an explosive device strapped to his body, O’Neill said. What do we know about the suspect? Law enforcement sources told Fox News Ullah lives in Brooklyn. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the explosion was an “attempted terrorist attack.” Sources told the Associated Press that Ullah may be of Bangladeshi descent. What else do we know about the
Several women who have accused US President Donald Trump of sexual assault and harassment were expected Monday to call on Congress to open an investigation. A press conference by the women will be hosted by Brave New Films, a media company that recently produced a clip detailing sexual harassment or assault claims by 16 women against Trump. A press release from Brave New Films on Sunday said the women would relate their accounts of Trump’s alleged “groping, fondling, forcibly kissing, humiliating, and harassing women.” The White House has dismissed all of the accusations as lies. During Trump’s presidential campaign, more than
