Yahoo! Finance certainly has almost Krugman-like timing. New York Times economist Paul Krugman immediately reacted to the 2016 election of Donald Trump by warning of a possible “global recession.” Perhaps Yahoo! was taking pointers for its latest series.
Facebook cracked down this week on Splinter News for sharing a link to its article revealing Stephen Miller’s personal cell phone number. According to Facebook’s Community Standards, posting links that contain an individual’s personal information, such as a person’s private cell phone number, can violate the site’s policy to prevent identity theft.
The fuming, unhinged liberals at MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday came completely unglued as they compared Donald Trump’s voters to Nazi's and the President himself to madman Kim Jong-un. It began with Mika Brzezinski proclaiming that President Trump “will forever be remembered as the president who traumatized little children.”
CNN news anchor Jake Tapper is getting his Afghani war book turned into a Hollywood action flick with major tinseltown leading men signing on for the action. On Thursday, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that several actors have been selected for the onscreen adaptation of The Outpost. The cast includes a few big names such as Orlando Bloom and Scott Eastwood, as well as up-and-coming Sharper Objects star, Taylor John Smith.
Appearing on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co. Friday morning, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell called on liberals to denounce the effort by the “radical left” to “censor” and “destroy” any media figure who supports, or even just shows kindness toward, President Trump.
"Democracy Dies in Darkness" or, according to Rolling Stone writer Ana Marie Cox, Democracy Dies in Duluth. Yes, that is her premise as she paints a condescending picture of those attending the June 20 rally for President Donald Trump in Duluth, Minnesota.
During Tuesday’s edition of The Beat With Ari Melber, one of the panelists, far-left immigration activist and open borders advocate Enrique Morones of the group “Border Angels” said that “Donald Trump, without a doubt, is pure evil. No other country in the Americas has walls.” He also said that “people are dying right now because of the wall that already exists. Eleven thousand people have died because of the 700-mile wall that already exists.”
If you want a secure border, you’re probably a racist, is the message you could take away from last night’s airing of The Late Show on CBS. Mid-show, host Stephen Colbert sat down with CNN anchor Don Lemon and the journalist basically blamed the border situation on white people fearful of losing their “privilege” in society.
Sad news on Thursday as word came that longtime conservative columnist and Fox News regular Charles Krauthammer has passed away. Krauthammer announced on June 8 that he only had a short time left to live, due to a recurrence of cancer. In 2013, the Media Research Center awarded Krauthammer the William F. Buckley Jr. Award for Media Excellence, and he spoke at our annual Gala on September 26 of that year.
As the dominant media have been fixated for the past week on the Trump administration stepping up prosecutions against non-citizens who cross illegally into the U.S., resulting in parents being separated from children during detention as required by law, CNN and MSNBC both repeatedly conflated asylum seekers who legally got through the proper procedure with those who cross the border illegally first before pursuing asylum after being apprehended. When DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen earlier this week called out the misreporting and insisted that legal asylum seekers are normally not separated from their children, except in unusual circumstances, the liberal networks scoffed at her admonishment and then pivoted to complaining that the legal process of applying for asylum at ports of entry takes too long.
Pictures may sometimes be worth 1,000 words, but they often either don't tell the whole story or tell a misleading one. Significant issues have emerged with what the press has read into the "iconic" photo taken of a crying two year-old taken at the U.S.-Mexico border by Getty Images photographer John Moore. The most important one, according to a UK Daily Mail interview with the girl's father left behind in Honduras with the couple's other three children, is that mother and daughter "were never separated by border control agents and remain together."
As if being a regular contributor to the Morning Joe weekday program isn’t proof enough that John Heilemann is a liberal Democrat, the MSNBC analyst did his best to leave no doubt where he stands politically during an interview on Wednesday. After slamming President Trump’s executive order to prevent children from being taken away from families after illegally crossing the Mexican border into the U.S., the national affairs analyst stated: “We have a great chance” to inflict “a political price” on “him and his party” during the mid-term elections in November.
First Lady Melania Trump caused a stir with the liberal media on Thursday when she wore a questionable jacket with “I really don’t care. Do you?” written on the back. She headed off to visit the children at the border who were separated from their parents. Of course, the gossip-prone media spend a considerable about of time trying to divine the secret meaning of the wardrobe choice and there were those who suggested she was saying that to the kids. CNN’s The Lead had both.
Freeform is known for having its overblown, progressive teen dramas, so Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger using the phrase “check your privilege” only mildly annoyed me. Following up with the belief that "this whole country's trying to kill [black people] every day," however, is where I would hope to draw the line.
Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson announced Tuesday that the nation's number 3 fast-food outlet (by number of locations) is closing 150 U.S. stores. It's not difficult to read Johnson's comments as indicating that the shuttered stores will primarily be in "blue" or liberal sections of the U.S. At the same time, he has specifically targeted "middle America and the South" for expansion. The business press isn't even trying to make the obvious connection between Johnson's announcement and the respective presence or absence of high minimum-wage laws and excessive regulation.
