At the Aspen Ideas Festival, liberal journalists maintained their high level of panic over President Trump’s “war on the press.” Jeffrey Goldberg is editor of The Atlantic magazine, a man who made sure his magazine abandoned its traditions to endorse Hillary Clinton for president. Now that his candidate failed, he claimed Trump’s criticisms of the press are going to lead to violence against journalists “in a large way.”
CNN’s eccentric Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta had been all over CNN and social media this week throwing a temper-tantrum over how the White House press briefings were being conducted. But during an appearance on The Situation Room, Wednesday evening, Acosta went full liberal activist as he decried the Trump administration and tried to smear a conservative panelist: “What we're witnessing right now is just this erosion of our freedoms in terms of covering the president of the United States.”
Four years after Beef Products Inc. (BPI) filed a defamation lawsuit against ABC News for smearing its lean finely textured beef (LFTB) as “pink slime,” the two have reached a settlement.
The $1.9 billion case against ABC News finally went before the jury June 5, 2017 and was settled June 28. While the terms were confidential, BPI spokesperson Tom Becker told The Media Research Center it was “a great point for the company. They’ve been vindicated.”
What could be better for the Left-stream media than a sporting event in which a far Left progressive athlete grabs a microphone and uses it to insult President Trump, Fox News and Republicans? That's what Dan Richards -- the "Liberal Progressive" -- is doing on the Kentucky wrestling circuit, and Left-stream media are digging it big-time.
As only he could, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh spend large swaths of Wednesday’s program trashing the liberal media and particularly CNN, referring to them as “fools” with “little Jim Acosta” behaving like a cat “chasing the red laser pointer around and bumping into walls and sofa.”
Vice Media, a digital Website and broadcasting company that generates news on technology and related topics, removed two articles from its site on Wednesday, June 28, that supposedly discussed a behind-the-scenes tumult over the addition of an animatronic robot version of President Donald Trump in the “Hall of Presidents” attraction in the Disney World theme park in Orlando, Florida.
While feminist media continue to lament the so-called “war on women” in America, the real war is happening abroad – especially in ISIS-controlled regions of the Middle East. In one of the most horrific examples of the terrorist group’s violence yet, a starving Yazidi woman was held captive without food for three days, before being offered a plate of rice and meat. After consuming the meal, she was informed that had just eaten the flesh of her one-year-old son, who had also been captured by the militants.
The latest video from James O’Keefe exposed another gaffe from a CNN personality. A day after a network producer admitted there was no “proof,” so far, to the Russia investigation, CNN personality Van Jones called the issue a “nothing burger.” The undated footage shows the liberal analyst stating, “The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger.”
CNN is pulling out all the stops to defend ObamaCare from Republicans meddling. On Wednesday’s New Day, an ObamaCare supporter was brought on to denounce the GOP plan. Take a look at some of the questions reporter Clarissa Ward (filling in for co-host Alisyn Camerota) asked...
It happened again...this time, on a warm summer morning at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia. A deranged Bernie Sanders supporter took it upon himself to open fire upon Republican members of Congress, leaving several severely wounded in his wake. And Univision anchor Jorge Ramos wasted no time in reeling off yet another screed in support of gun control.
Finally, someone in the establishment media is acknowledging that the Southern Poverty Law Center has a credibility problem. Politico writer Ben Schreckinger raised the issue in a long piece posted June 28 titled “Has a Civil Rights Stalwart Lost its Way?”
After Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News falsely tried to frame a New York City subway derailment as a sign of “America’s aging infrastructure,” Wednesday’s Today acknowledged that the accident was actually due to “human error.” However, that correction did not stop correspondent Thomas Roberts from using the incident to attack President Trump’s proposed budget that would reduce Transportation Department spending.
“You can’t fudge the numbers of the Medicaid cuts,” Joe Scarborough warned in an ominous tone on Wednesday’s Morning Joe. Decrying the “lying” Republicans, he then hypocritically exclaimed, “You slash $750 billion...after you’ve already slashed another $300 or $400 billion in an underlying budget, over $1 trillion in Medicaid cuts, that destroys health care in Trump America.” Following suit in an unsurprisingly toadyish manner, Mike Barnicle, then proceeded to laughably state that,“math is the reality here.”
Cosmopolitan devoted an article to a particularly theatrical Planned Parenthood protest -- in which volunteers donned white bonnets and red capes. The aim of the protest was to draw a parallel between the novel, which, according to Cosmo, illustrates “a dystopian future in which women are stripped of their reproductive rights” and our current political climate.
It’s been one year since the Lebanese Christian village of Qaa was targeted by eight ISIS suicide bombers – an atrocity that killed five and wounded 32. Had this horror happened in the west, it would have garnered copious media coverage. But the American network news shows didn’t mention it.
