The "Truth-o-Meter" at PolitiFact (and their subset PunditFact) is very strange machine. On January 11, PunditFact ruled it "HALF TRUE" when Sean Hannity proclaimed on his show on January 10 that "17,000 individuals with criminal records were apprehended trying to cross the border" in 2018. Hannity repeated that number on January 17. But they also admitted it was "basically correct." 



Five years can be a very long time, especially at the Washington Post, which criticized President Trump for "turning the White House into a White Castle” fast food restaurant while hosting the national champions of the Clemson Tigers football team. But back in 2014, the liberal newspaper viewed the eating habits of then-President Barack Obama much differently by describing the Democratic occupant of the White House and his fondness for cheeseburgers as a "love story.”



Amidst the liberal media’s long-delayed realization that perhaps their friends in the Women’s March are anti-Semites, CNN host John King leveled an attack Friday on Christianity through the lens of the Second Family, wondering if the conservative Christianity espoused by the Pences disqualifies Second Lady Karen Pence from Secret Service protection. Earth to John King — Joy Behar tried pulling a fast one like this almost a year ago on ABC’s The View and, if you’d ask Behar and her bosses, it didn’t turn out too well.



Moments after MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell read a statement from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accusing President Trump of endangering U.S. troops in Afghanistan by publicly postponing the Democratic leader’s trip to the war-torn country, Capitol Hill correspondent Garrett Haake insisted that Pelosi actually “held back quite a lot” when it came to trashing Trump.



On Thursday’s Ingraham Angle, Fox host Laura Ingraham contrasted the media’s coverage of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s request that President Trump delay the State of the Union address because of the partial government shutdown with their coverage of President Trump asking Pelosi to delay an overseas trip due to the shutdown. The chyron at the bottom of the screen during the segment summarized the media’s coverage quite aptly: “media touts Pelosi’s petty move but trashes Trump for hitting back.”



The nauseatingly controversial Bob Costas, an eight-time National Sportscaster of the Year award winner, is leaving NBC. The New York Post's Andrew Marchand reports it is difficult for Costas and the network to find projects he feels passionate about and which fit into NBC's current properties. No wonder. Costas has, over his four decades with the network, demonstrated his passion is political lecture. He's worn out his welcome among sport fans who tune into sports broadcasts for sports and prefer that politics be left to the newscasters.



The Mr. & Mrs. Mike Pence hate train has been receiving quite a few guests onboard in the last week, what with Huffington Post and several CNN anchors insisting that the Second Lady is a homophobic bigot for working at a devout Christian school. Now that VP Mike Pence has come to her defense, more lefties are calling him an “extremist” who exists in the same camp as actual hate-peddlers like Louis Farrakhan and the Ku Klux Klan.



The liberal media outlet The Intercept reported that its scrutiny of the liberal Center for American Progress recently led to the firing of two CAP employees “suspected” of leaking emails. Leaked emails showed concern among some staff about United Arab Emirates’ influence at the liberal group.

CAP is one of the most well-known liberal groups in Washington, D.C. and is supported by a host of prominent left-wing names including George Soros and Tom Steyer. Soros gave more than $12 million to CAP between 2005 and 2014 and more since.



The blog contains a list of organizations and news outlets who have repeated the now-defunct line about "deceptive edits" in light of the recent ruling against Planned Parenthood by the U.S. 5th Circuit Court. It's anybody's guess as to how many of them will issue udates or corrections.



Buzzfeed News's scandalous report out late Thursday night, which alleges President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project, is being eaten up by the media as the smoking gun they’ve been searching for to impeach Trump. Despite the fact that the report relies on anonymous sources and one of the journalists has a history of shoddy reporting, cable news and the networks this morning have given it near-nonstop attention and credibility. But even the journalists behind the report can’t seem to get their stories straight on the evidence.

 


This year’s March for Life is brandishing a new tagline that is sure to rile up members of the liberal establishment. The March’s theme will be “Unique from Day One: Pro-Life is Pro-Science,” a tagline that almost seems calculated to trigger liberals who say they “f*cking’ love science! In response, Washington Post religious writer Julie Zausmer teed up her best, “Nuh uh, that’s not science!” rebuttal, and backed it up with more of the same tired pro-choice arguments.

 


For his Reporter’s Notebook segment on Friday’s CBS This Morning, co-host John Dickerson took the journalistic equivalent of Facebook’s ten-year challenge, fondly looking back at the “hope” and “good relations” of Barack Obama’s inauguration in January of 2009. He then lamented how “grim” things were in Washington a decade later, under President Trump.



In a Pew Research Center poll released Friday, a majority of Americans and nearly three-quarters of Republicans responded that “news organizations don’t understand people like them” and not only that, but this disturbing answer came regardless of their news consumption habits. When asked whether “news organizations understand people like them,” 40 percent of Americans polled agreed while 58 percent replied that the press “don’t understand....them.” 



When Speaker Pelosi called for the State of the Union address to be postponed, network morning show anchors celebrated it as a “bold” move and a “power play” — until they needed an excuse to criticize the President for retaliating. President Trump responded Thursday to Pelosi’s move by cancelling her military flight overseas, prompting those same network hosts to redefine the whole ordeal as a “petty feud.” 



The New York Times has been on a kick to normalize and mainstream the Democratic Socialists of America, and the crusade continue  with a long flattering half-page profile of Lee Carter, a socialist elected to represent Manassas, Va., in the state House of Delegates. Reporter Farah Stockman’s story “Challenge to the Status Quo Not Seen Before in Pro-Business Virginia” came with a huge photo of a noble Carter looking thoughtful. The online headline was more direct: “How One Socialist Lawmaker Is Trying to Change His State’s Pro-Business Policies.”
