Washington Post business columnist Steven Pearlstein’s argument that businesses “dump” President Donald Trump demonstrated why many Americans think the liberal media is out of touch with reality. “Now is the time for business leaders to dump Trump — for the good of the country,” the headline of Pearlstein’s proclaimed on the front page of the Post’s Business section June 11.
Squawk Box co-host Joe Kernen condemned climate change as a “socialist, global wealth redistribution scheme” on Twitter. “Who in their right minds believes this?” he tweeted on June 9, “And what does it say about the veracity of CAGW [Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming] if acolytes call this ‘science’ and accept as fact?”
When President Donald Trump proposed privatizing air traffic control, liberal media outlets like Slate and The Los Angeles Times only told half the story. “Trump has picked a rather thorny subject on which to wage his first infrastructure battle,” Slate staff writer Henry Grabar declared on June 5.
Billionaire George Soros donated at least $10.5 million to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. But the two families are chummy beyond that and they don’t even try to hide it.
Soros’ son Alexander posted a selfie of himself with Chelsea Clinton on his Instagram Story on Tuesday. The photo was taken at the Gordon Parks Foundation June 6 gala, which, according to the website, honored specific “individuals who have enriched our lives.” The younger Soros was one of the honorees.
He captioned the selfie with Chelsea and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, as a #familyphoto, and thanked them for “enduring the night with me."
Since President Donald Trump’s election, the major media have feverishly covered alleged collusion with Russia. But they refused to report on evidence that the government worked with George Soros to fund “left-leaning policies” in foreign countries.
InsideClimate News may have won a Pulitzer Prize, but it looks like it skipped Journalism 101: report, don’t speculate. InsideClimate writer David Hasemyer launched into a series of speculations about “perhaps damaging” information that Exxon documents “could” provide. That isn’t how news works. But it proves that the agenda of InsideClimate News isn’t news, it’s promoting a liberal agenda on climate change and the environment.
Every major news outlet is reporting that President Trump will likely cancel the controversial Paris Climate Agreement. President Barack Obama intentionally avoided signing a climate treaty because it probably wouldn’t have passed the Senate.

The agreement was part of Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia on May 21.
As President Donald Trump’s presidency has progressed, so have media allegations against him.

Throughout Barack Obama’s presidency, the broadcast networks desperately tried to put a positive spin on the weakest economic recovery since World War II. But now that unemployment is predicted to drop below 4 percent, they are silent.
In an entertainment and media world dominated by liberals, Dilbert comic artist Scott Adams is a breath of fresh air. Sunday’s Dilbert cartoon mocked climate scientists for calling climate change skeptics “deniers,” when the scientists themselves jump through a laughable number of hoops to conclude man-made climate change “will lead to a global catastrophe.” The comic ran May 14.
Republicans are the absolute worst! According to the leftist Noam Chomsky, anyway. The self-proclaimed anarchist MIT professor declared on May 10 Republicans were not only “the most dangerous organisation on earth,” but the most dangerous “in human history.” Chomsky attacked the political party in an interview with BBC Newsnight, because of his disapproval of GOP views on climate change.
Cosmo Magazine should stick to bad beauty tips and leave climate change to others. “Tiffany & Co. Wants Donald Trump to Address Climate Change,” Cosmo Magazine writer Rachel Torgerson gushed on May 9. But her story lacked critical analysis and context. It might not help that Cosmo has the reputation as loony, liberal, sex-advice publication.
After Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt chose not to renew the contracts of several members of EPA’s Board of Scientific Counselors, ProPublica falsely claimed he fired them. “Trump admin fires scientists on EPA review board.

A surprising report from the George Soros-funded Columbia Journalism Review (CJR) revealed several scientists oppose the way the media have tried to blame hurricanes on man-made climate change.
