It’s not been a good week for the New York Times. The beleaguered newspaper on Thursday suffered another embarrassment as one of the paper’s editors was exposed for tweeting vile, anti-Semitic, racist attacks on Jews and Indians. As reported by Breitbart and Twitchy, Tom Wright-Piersanti, the senior staff editor at the Times has a history of hateful remarks. The editor has been quickly deleting old tweets, including this one from 2010 in which he admits to being an anti-Semite:
There has been lots of talk in the media recently about loyalty and on her Wednesday MSNBC Live show, Hallie Jackson got into an argument with Log Cabin Republicans national spokesperson Charles Moran over the organization's decision to endorse President Trump for re-election and one of the board members, Jennifer Horn's, decision to resign in protest.
Facebook has been stalking users’ internet history. Don’t believe it? Just ask ... Facebook. The company published an August 20 article via its Newsroom titled “Now You Can See and Control the Data That Apps and Websites Share With Facebook.” The piece assures Facebook users that “businesses often share data about people’s interactions on their websites with ad platforms and other services.” Facebook stated that this is a mere feature of the modern internet that must be accepted.
Jon Meacham got one thing right. On today's Morning Joe, he said that the heads of any conservatives listening to him would blow up over their Wheaties. What was Meacham's remark that was so explosive to any right-thinking listener? His prediction that someday, we'll look back and realize that Al Gore was . . . "a prophetic voice" on the environment.
There’s a significant difference between guarding someone and attacking someone else in the process, but you wouldn’t know it from an alleged incident in New Jersey, where a bodyguard for CNN pundit April Ryan attacked a local reporter by taking away his video camera and physically forcing him out of the building. That bizarre attack took place on August 3, when Ryan was slated to give a speech in New Brunswick until her bodyguard, Joel Morris, intervened and struck Charlie Kratovil, an editor who has now filed criminal charges including harassment, assault and theft.
CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter reported the big lead story in his "Reliable Sources" newsletter late on Wednesday night, headlined "Spicer Fury at ABC News." Sources inside ABC were "up in arms" about Spicer being named to the cast of ABC's Dancing with the Stars and were talking to Stelter and his liberal colleague Oliver Darcy.
On Tuesday's Erin Burnett Outfront on CNN, fill-in host Kate Bolduan twice employed the lame "if it saves one life" argument that's typically not used on other issues as she made Republican guest Rob Astorino debate both her and liberal CNN contributor Aisha Moodie-Mills on gun control. Instead of having a discussion on the merits of whether gun control would help matters, Bolduan was more fixated on President Donald Trump backing off his earlier calls for more background checks.
Were you able to sit through all seven episodes of Showtime's "The Loudest Voice" about Roger Ailes without falling asleep? Well, good news! This December a movie will be released on the exact same subject called "Bombshell." Not only will it cover the same ground again, but we can be pretty sure that it will repeat the slam on Fox News for daring to not fall in line with the strictly liberal agenda that has been tightly embraced by much of the rest of the media.
Things took a bizarre turn roughly ten minutes into Wednesday’s Hardball and, surprisingly, it wasn’t MSNBC host Chris Matthews. After discussing President Donald Trump’s feud with Denmark, the topic turned to Trump’s proposal to invite Russia back into the G-7 (making it the G-8) again when far-left PBS NewsHour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor appeared to take issue with Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the USA being played at Trump rallies.
In a Wednesday appearance on the Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan Primetime with fill-in host David Asman, NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham ripped into The New York Times by comparing the newspaper to the current Congress, complete with a lefty leader being besieged by their “radical base”.
If you thought kneeling for the National Anthem was as low as liberals could go, wait until you see the latest episode of Pose—or do yourself a favor, skip it, and get the low down from this article instead. There’s no doubt that this show is littered with liberal agendas, as it revolves around the transgender ball community, but the season finale aired a scene that should have many Americans upset.
Tuesday's NBC Sports Pro Football Talk discussion between Mike Florio and Chris Simms fully demonstrated how the sports media's criticism of those who repeat the "stick to sports" refrain is much more of an attack on conservatives than anything else. After it became known that the NFL Players Coalition had drop-kicked Miami Dolphins' owner and Trump supporter Stephen Ross out of its social justice club, he and conservatives were subject to attack by left-wing echo chambers.
President Trump handed the liberal media more ammunition on Wednesday when he doubled down on his inartful comments criticizing American Jews who voted for Democrats instead of siding with Israel. With the President calling them “disloyal”, accusations of anti-Semitism poured forth from the media. Meanwhile, Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (MN) and Rashida Tlaib (MI) were wrapped up in their own cases of anti-Semitism and claims of disloyalty, yet the liberal media covered for them.
As NewsBusters previously reported, the liberal media have repeatedly defended Antifa, the far-left group that’s unleashed terror in just a few short years. During Monday’s Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham sat down with independent journalist Elijah Schaffer, who recorded footage from the weekend’s Antifa squabbles in Portland. Schaffer slammed the “mainstream outlets” for “ignoring the truth” about the violence caused by Antifa.
In a story for the New York Times front page Tuesday, “Shareholders Rule No More, C.E.O.s Pledge,” business reporters David Gelles and David Yaffe-Bellany conceded all the left-wing arguments about the evils of big business and roasted Nobel laureate free-market economist Milton Friedman as an avatar of greed: "This mind-set informed the corporate raiders of the 1980s and contributed to an unswerving focus on quarterly earnings reports. It found its way into pop culture, when in the 1987 movie “Wall Street,” Gordon Gekko declared, 'Greed is good.'"
