The Washington Examiner’s T. Becket Adams exposed on Tuesday morning in a series of tweets the very problem that besets a liberal media obsessed with placing legitimate conservative sites into the sphere of the fake news when a number of journalists chided Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for comments at CPAC 2014 regarding school lunches thanks to a dishonest hatchet job by Time magazine.
A friend told me he couldn't wait to see the videos of crowds of cheering Carrier workers when Donald Trump arrived at the company's plant in Indianapolis to celebrate management's decision to keep a substantial portion of its production there instead of moving it to Mexico.
If there such are photos or videos out there, I haven't seen them. There may be a reason for that apparent absence or lack of prominence beyond the press's long-recognized desire to keep the public from seeing large, positive crowds at Trump appearances. The real concern here appears to be widespread recognition of the fact that the President-Elect, half of whose followers Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton outrageously described as "a basket of deplorables ... racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it," just worked to save the jobs of a workforce that is half African-American.
Every year, the media promotes an annual study put out by the The Southern Poverty Law Center, a left wing organization devoted to “monitoring” hate groups and crimes across the U.S, despite provoking it’s own hate crime against a conservative organization in 2012. The group has a cozy relationship with the media, with its president Richard Cohen frequently appearing on news programs to promote his group’s “studies,” even though the group in no way actually vets or verifies any of the alleged incidents.
In a classic example of “Never Say Die,” more than two weeks after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was declared the winner in this year's race to occupy the White House, a group of computer scientists and election lawyers are urging Democrat Hillary Clinton to demand a manual recount of ballots, saying they noticed some “statistical irregularities” in key swing states.
Computer scientist J. Alex Halderman has asserted that voting machines across the nation “have serious cybersecurity problems” that open them up to hacking. He also emphasized that there’s currently no evidence that machines in key swing states that went to Trump were hacked, but it’s necessary to examine physical evidence to make sure they were not.
The establishment press wants readers, listeners and viewers to believe that the search engines and social media are being overwhelmed by "fake news." Those making such allegations are, with rare exceptions, thinking of conservative and center-right web sites which have been countering their established wisdom and taking readers and dollars away from them.
Well, if that's so, at least in regards to Google and Donald Trump's nomination of Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, I'm having a hard time finding evidence of that. Instead, auto-suggested search results provided by the world's dominant search engine on Saturday took me straight to the leftist fever swamps and to a New York Times editorial which might as well have originated there.
The latest media meme on President-Elect Donald Trump is that his presidential transition effort is in "chaos," "total disarray," etc. Establishment press outlets from the supposedly chastened (but not really) New York Times, to the Associated Press, to the fever swamps at the Huffington Post, are relentlessly playing that tune. As Bret Baier at Fox News noted on Special Report Wednesday night, this hysterical overreaction has no historical basis. In fact, no party-changing presidential transition in the past 50 years has seen a single appointment take place during the first two weeks after the incoming administration's electoral victory.
Grab her by the napkin. That’s what The Washington Post encouraged at its election party where a female server’s body was used as a napkin dispenser. To celebrate the potential election of the first woman president, guests were encouraged to pull napkins off of a napkin-clad woman at the daily newspaper’s casino-themed election party. According to The Huffington Post, the woman wore a dress of napkins over another dress.
Squawk Box host Joe Kernen blasted the “mainstream media” as the election loser saying certain outlets should accept humiliation. “The mainstream media is a loser in this and not just in trying to analyze what was happening but trying to influence and affect what was happening,” Kernen said on Nov. 9.
While interviewing Democratic U.S. Senator Al Franken on Sunday, Jake Tapper used the classic "some other people say" tactic — in this case, referring to "some columnists" — to peddle the idea that there is a deliberate anti-Semitic undertone in Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's final 2-minute campaign ad.
A recent article in The Huffington Post claims the prophet Muhammad was actually the world’s first real feminist and advocate of women’s rights.
In his article, “Muhammad was a Feminist,” Jim Garrison of something called Ubiquity University believes women’s equality is “key” to a real Arab Spring, and claims “Of all the founders of the great religions - Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Islam and Judaism — Muhammad was easily the most radical and empowering in his treatment of women. Arguably he was history’s first feminist.”
As you sow, so shall you reap, as liberal feminists Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham learned the hard way after being accused of cultural appropriation. Schumer received much backlash over a video of her and friends (including Wanda Sykes) dancing to Beyoncé’s song “Formation.” Despite the “Trainwreck” actress calling the video a “tribute,” social media accused her of cultural appropriation and making light “of the racial politics addressed in Beyoncé’s video,” reported CNN.
The deep thinkers at the animal-rights group PETA strike again with an ad comparing animals “born into the meat, egg, and dairy industries” to rape and sexual assault victims. PETA tweeted the ad on November 2 with the caption, “No mother should have to go through any of this.” The black-and-white video begins with distressed looking women recounting stories of what appear to be sexual assaults.
