A newspaper editor confronts AP
over fake news

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Posted By:magnante, 1/1/2018 8:28:44 AM

Trump Derangement Syndrome is a real phenomenon, capable of clouding the judgment of seasoned journalists, and now we have a case study demonstrating the depths of the disorder at the nation’s largest provider of news. Frank Miele edits a small newspaper in Kalispell, Montana, The Daily Inter Lake, but has attracted a national audience with his common sense conservative editorials. His latest weekly column is a must-read for everyone who wants to understand how and why fake news flourishes in the mainstream media. He describes his “rare shift” as news editor the day before yesterday, in which he encountered an AP

If any failing MSM types were to suddenly decide they are a business and not a propaganda arm of the DNC, they would hire Frank Miele as Editor in Chief and watch their profits soar.

I sent the link to Mr. Miele’s article to our paper, The Joplin Globe, which tends to use the AP articles for non-local news. It remains to be seen whether it has any effect. I’m cautiously optimistic but I’m not going to hold my breath.

I had read that in addition to the huge sum moved to Dr. McCabe´s campaign by McAuliffe, Hillary did a 500,000 dollar fundraiser for Dr. McCabe.
Is that true?

The absolute biggest threat to our Republic is the biased fake news media. Freedom and liberty are NOT passed down through the generations it must be fought for every day. Frank Miele is doing his part and I just bookmarked his paper as a daily read.

While I applaud Frank Miele´s effort it doesn´t matter. The lie has been told and truth is relegated to the back page of yesterday´s news. The problem is journalism itself - it is no longer an honorable profession. Integrity is no longer taught in schools as of principal importance. But why I should imagine that journalism should be anything but a reflection of society at large is just foolish wishes of an old man.

Americans kid themselves that "news" has ever been anything but bullstuff. If it´s published, it´s someone´s impression of "the news", about 99 percent of it manufactured by PR flacks (including the many government propaganda ministers at every level, from local to Fed) and other special interests.

The trick today is to read for the literal truth and fill in with the actual truth from other sources. Toss in that television news is all about visuals, easy to "fake" out of context, and "print" news is poorly written and stretched via opinion to create a false context by "pundits" of all sorts.

To accurately decide matters, one must have access to facts, not speculation. The news media is well aware of this and have abused their ability to form public opinion and political policy for at least 200 years. It has gotten much worse since all the newspapers in the USA are controlled by a handful of corporations owned by indoctrinated Marxists. The advent of the Internet and social media has wrenched the control of information away from them and enabled President Trump to be elected. The great Democracy experiment will cease to exist with a puppet media.

The AP slants almost every story they run. I cancelled my local paper after they had two AP articles in one day that were not only biased but factually wrong. They have no integrity and no shame about what they are doing. Any means are justified if they produce the right outcome.

I´ve been reading Miele´s columns for a few years now. He´s on the same level as Vin Suprynowicz as far as I´m concerned. It seems pretty remarkable and outrageous that an editor from a small town newspaper was probably the only journalist who had the temerity to take the AP to task for slanted biased coverage of POTUS. Maybe there´s hope after all.

Why California is the
´poverty capital of the America´
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 1/15/2018 9:00:37     Post Reply
An excellent op-ed in the LA Times today by Kerry Jackson on why California - with its liberal politics and generous welfare system - is the "poverty capital of America." (snip) From 1992 to 2015, state and local governments spent nearly $1 trillion to help the poor. The state, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients. Jackson then reaches the not so astonishing conclusion: "The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse." One of the big reasons for this

Take a step back: Did Trump

Posted By: magnante- 1/14/2018 8:24:35     Post Reply
Our first step in responding to the fake news firestorm about what Trump did or didn´t say about some African countries is to figure out what Trump actually said. Two leakers say he used the term "s---holes" to describe Haiti and African countries. However, the only person corroborating that as this is being written is a Democrat. Given that Harry Reid gleefully admitted to lying about Mitt Romney not paying taxes, it´s not irrational to question that Democrat´s veracity. We also know that the leakers were willing to hurt the U.S. in order to gain a partisan political advantage. The leakers knew

Note to Fusion GPS: If you´re going to mouth off to the media and ignore the public record, you´d better be prepared to have your confidential documents subpoenaed. That´s the takeaway from last week´s ruling by Judge Richard J. Leon, district court judge from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, denying Fusion GPS´s request for a preliminary injunction against TD Bank. The injunction would have stopped the bank from complying with a subpoena for bank documents served by the House Intelligence Committee relating to the oppo research firm´s financial transactions with media and political clients from the period

Do I really have to explain President Trump’s strategy in reportedly using a vulgar expression to describe countries from which he believes the United States is taking far too many immigrants? (snip) Trump has forced everyone whom he outraged to repeat the words he wants to sink in with the public. The entire chattering class is now repeating that Haiti and some African countries and Salvador and other TPS abusers (changing a visa explicitly labeled as “temporary” into a permanent one) are bleepholes. The best of example comes from Trump’s sworn enemy Jim Acosta, who repeated the vulgarism in its

Warns Adviser Roger Stone

It´s a shocking claim made by a political insider: the Deep State is so opposed to draining the swamp that it will, if necessary, kill President Trump to prevent it. Roger Stone, a longtime Trump adviser and confidant, certainly knows his way around Washington, having worked as a senior campaign aide to Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and Senator Bob Dole as well as having held many other political positions. This proximity to the Deep State is what makes his claim, expressed in a recent wide-ranging interview with The New American magazine´s Alex Newman, that much more eyebrow-raising. Stone outlined three plans

No, it´s not Barack Obama, but Nelson Mandela, leading a group of black people in a solemn vow to kill the whiteys.

A faint odor of desperation accompanies the latest revised plans for the monument to the greatness of Barrack Hussein Obama planned for Chicago. (snip) The failure of the citizenry to unite in praise and awe – there has been a firestorm of criticism -- has led Obama Foundation officials to go and hire as their lawyer Langdon Neal, a man described in 2016 by the Chicago Sun-Times as the “Chicago machine’s $99 million man,” “one of the city’s most politically connected lawyers,” who “has made a fortune helping City Hall and other governments condemn land for schools, police stations, McCormick

The first community organizer to become president has managed to anger community groups so much with his planned personal monument, aka “presidential center,” that part of the plan was just scrapped.

The group Save the Midway sprang up to protect the historic public park land from a private developer (the Obama Foundation) appropriating the land for a private purpose (the Obama Center will not be part of the National Archives System) The embarrassment is palpable:

Why Liberals Need to Look
Down on Conservatives
American Thinker, by Selwyn Duke    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 1/9/2018 9:53:09     Post Reply
A common theme among progressives is that conservatives aren´t just wrong; they´re dumb. Reagan was dumb. G.W. Bush was dumb. Trump is dumb. "Knuckle-dragger," "mouth-breather," "stupid," and "uncultured" are typical pejoratives hurled at conservatives, who apparently tend to live in trailer parks, require dental care, handle snakes, and marry first cousins. (snip) Any argument that may give them even an inkling that they´re wrong can induce a bit of panic and is thus quickly rationalized away – often as the rambling of uneducated, un-evolved mouth-breathers who just don´t know any better. This phenomenon is exacerbated by two related factors. First, liberals

The left indeed has become a family. Unfortunately, it often resembles the Gotti crime family (hat tip: Larry Schweikart). Let´s face it: Republicans have their share of corruption, but what the left has become is not tinged with the normal shortcomings of humanity. It´s become criminal. Literally. Fully. And seriously. Let´s look at a few shades of leftist criminality. I don´t mean the common finger-pointing, where leftists claim that anything done by the center-right is "criminal." Like being for tax cuts. Being pro-life. Or against illegal immigration. Voting for Trump was criminal. The left thinks anyone to its right is criminal. But most sane

Lots of the news from sub-Saharan Africa is about war, famine, poverty or political upheaval. So it’s understandable if many Americans think most Africans who immigrate to the United States are poorly educated and desperate. Research tells another story. While many are refugees, large numbers are beneficiaries of the diversity-visa program aimed at boosting immigration from underrepresented nations. And on average, African immigrants are better educated than people born in the U.S. or the immigrant population as a whole.

Why would my 22-year-old brother be calling so early on a Saturday morning? I’d ignored the first call. But the second time the phone rang, I picked it up. He was panicking, his voice trembling uncharacteristically: He’d just received the emergency alert warning of a ballistic missile that was heading for Hawaii, where I’m from, and where he and my family still live. “THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the alert read. My brother was alone, and had no idea what to do or where to go. And he wouldn’t have had much time to figure out a game plan—some estimates
