So, when FS1’s Jason Whitlock spoke about the media using the racial controversy surrounding Cam Newton for “clicks and ratings,” well he just might have been on to something there.
In a move to eliminate any possibility that the Huffington Post might be a “fair and balanced” news website, the liberal organization has begun adding a harsh message at the bottom of every article dealing with Donald Trump, the GOP front-runner in this year's presidential contest.
The addendum reads: “Note to our readers: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslins -- 1.6 billion members of an entire religion -- from entering the U.S.”
Amanda Terkel at The Huffington Post was stirred to write a story headlined “Catholic Newspaper Names Same-Sex Marriage Plaintiffs 'Persons Of The Year’.” If this seems like a prank headline, it sort of is: the “Catholic” newspaper is the Kansas City-based leftist “social justice warrior” rag calling itself the National Catholic Reporter. Terkel can’t find an ideological label, just the term “independent.”
Since when does TV closely align with reality? Pretty rarely. However, whenever there’s an agenda to be achieved by doing so, you can expect liberals to chime in.
Recently, NPR reported results from a University of California study that revealed TV portrayals of women who have abortions make them whiter, younger, wealthier and less likely to already have children than true statistics reflect.
In the annual competition between leftist media outlets for the screwiest (or most Scrooge-like) criticism of Christmas traditions, a Huffingon Post item published Thursday morning by Michael McLaughlin (HT Breitbart) was a formidable entry.
After the HuffPo reporter's headline noted that "U.S. Christmas Lights Burn More Energy Than Some Nations In A Year," he suggested that "maybe we should unplug our decorations."
Each year, Christmastime is moving farther away from a celebration of peace, joy and love toward media-promoted consumerism, violence and debauchery. From movies, to music to television, many of the messages this year were far from heartwarming.
Have you heard about the Christmastime plight of atheists and humanists in the military? Apparently, they’re feeling marginalized.
A leftist flack who has been waging his own personal war on women for at least a decade has been exposed. As a result, his far-left public relations firm, a leader in the field, has closed.
FitzGibbon Media shut down on Thursday. That's because Trevor FitzGibbon, the firm's founder and owner, who also was "a communications director for (now-President Barack) Obama’s 2008 campaign," has been accused by several now-former employees of sexual assault and sexual harassment. Though the defunct firm's client list reads like a Who's Who of "progressive" and radical causes, and despite how sensational charges such as these are usually considered ready-made clickbait in the press, the FitzGibbon shutdown has received minimal press exposure. The obvious comparative point, raised at TruthRevolt on Friday: "Just imagine if this were a GOP PR firm."
If you have ever wanted to read a politically-correct primer on how the liberal media works, look no further than this helpful how-to straight from the horse’s mouth: the Huffington Post.
Senior media editor Gabriel Arana explained in the article, “5 Ways Journalists Can Avoid Islamophobia in Their Coverage,” that 1. Journalists shouldn’t provide opposing points of view when covering Islam; 2. Journalists shouldn’t use the word “Islam” when talking about terror; and 3. All journalists should have a “close” Muslim friend to make sure their reporting is friendly to the faith.
It was inevitable that we would reach this day ever since the Huffington Post ridiculously announced last July that it would cover Donald Trump only in their Entertainment section. Immediately after that foolish announcement, entertainment did come in the way of the Huffington Post being widely mocked for their laughable policy. And ever since that announcement, it was obvious to many keen observers that they would eventually have to reverse their dopey decision. That reversal occurred yesterday with this "note" from HuffPo founder Arianna Huffington:
Sheesh! Talk about a completely misplaced set of priorities! In the wake of the Paris terror attacks last week in which hundreds were killed and wounded, what is now the main concern for Huffington Post reporter Daniel Marans? How the attacks will make a global climate deal more likely. In this, he sure sounds like he is as tone deaf as Brian Williams who expressed the same concern during the middle of the Paris attacks. Let us now join Marans in his complete divorce from reality:
Jonathan Cohn is the reliably liberal senior national correspondent for the Huffington Post. Therefore, one must take notice when he subjected the fiscal policy answers of the Democrat presidential candidates to a robust vetting after their Saturday debate and found them quite wanting. Cohn's problem is he thinks the candidates should be honest about having to increase taxes. You really expect honesty from them on this matter, Jonathan?
