With concerns about privacy, misinformation, and bias on the rise, Senators Chris Coons (D-DE) and Bob Corker (R-TN) have warned that Facebook may soon face regulations if it doesn’t fix these problems.
On Tuesday, CNN’s New Day hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota brandished a decision by a California judge that temporarily halted President Trump’s recent executive action on asylum. Yet back in 2012 when it was former President Obama’s DACA order on the chopping block, hosts on CNN rushed to defend the President’s ability to enact immigration policy without Congressional approval.
Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams stated on Friday in her near concession speech that the winner, Brian Kemp, owed his victory "on the suppression of the people’s democratic right to vote." As we have seen, this talking point was taken up by Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown as well as many of his fellow liberals. In addition, that talking point has gone pretty much unchallenged by most of the mainstream media.
As a result of the latter, the Steve Kane Radio Show co-host, Brian Craig, made an interesting observation on Monday while taking a call from a liberal who took up that voter suppression meme: if so many Georgia voters were unfairly purged, then where are they and why has there been no media interviews with them?
Increasingly, readers of news across the US will find that the “heat” behind a mainstream journalistic “hot take” is usually contained completely in the headline so to draw as many clicks as possible. The actual text of the article will contain a weak argument, questionable statistical evidence, and needless speculation.
The panel on CNN’s New Day Tuesday morning used the Ivanka Trump email story to fawn over Hillary Clinton, admitting regret over giving it “too much” attention during the 2016 election cycle. The journalists revealed their bias in calling it a “bogus” story to begin with, complaining that they probably helped seal her defeat by giving it attention.
On CNN's New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota, reacting to the news that Ivanka Trump used personal email, turned to former Trump aide Marc Short and snidely asked: "Marc, at Trump rallies, they chant 'lock her up, lock her up.' Who are they referring to? Hillary, or Ivanka?"
When Washington Redskins' quarterback Alex Smith went down with a nasty, season-ending injury Sunday, all appeared to be lost for the NFC East Division leaders. Not so fast, say a host of Monday morning quarterback sports writers who ignited the latest in a never-ending series of Colin Kaepernick eruptions. If Kaepernick could just get a chance to play for the Redskins or another team in need, the notorious anthem kneeler could save their season. Possibly even lead them on a magical Super Bowl run.
After being arrested on felony domestic violence charges last week, there was a new chapter in the saga of Michael Avenatti’s alleged abuse late Monday night when news broke that New York actress Mareli Miniutti had filed a domestic violence restraining order against him. Both CNN and MSNBC couldn’t be bothered to mention the development on air that night.
On Monday night, The Neighborhood on CBS had a special racist Thanksgiving episode. A white character said his mom was "from a small town, she's kind of old-school, she can be pretty conservative." A black character responded: "Oh, she's racist."
The camp set up for the Central American caravan in Tijuana was on “lockdown” on Sunday as Mexican residents of the city attempted to storm the area in protest. The unwelcome arrival of the caravan had put tremendous pressure on Tijuana’s resources resulting in many locals taking to the streets in opposition. It was a serious and dangerous development that went completely unreported during ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News Monday evening.
When you hear television anchors and correspondents bandy about the label “anti-immigrant” in their reporting, that’s a telltale sign you are probably hearing brazenly dishonest news.
First flagged down by our friends at the Daily Wire, CBS News chief Whtie House correspondent Major Garrett did his best to not directly condemn CNN counterpart Jim Acosta while speaking Friday to WMAL host and Washington Times editor Larry O'Connor. Nonetheless, Garrett noted that that “a standard of conduct and expected behavior” exists that is agreed upon by White House correspondents which, based on his answers, would place Acosta outside that.
On Monday afternoon, the White House released a series of brief but simple guidelines for journalists in light of CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s carnival-barking at not only press conferences with the President, but a pattern of bombastic, self-centered behavior that resulted in a ten-day legal standoff that began on November 7.
New on November 19: At the top of a Friday night discussion about why many white women support President Donald Trump, CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers declared their preference for Trump over Hillary Clinton means, de facto, they are “racist.” Referring to Trump, Powers contended: “If you support somebody who does racist things, that makes you racist.”
Conservatives are having a difficult time trusting that social media companies will protect the First Amendment. In a new poll released by Axios, the general sentiment towards big tech companies such as Google and Facebook was negative
