“Atrocities Under Kim Jong-un: Indoctrination, Prison Gulags, Executions” is a solid, depressing rundown of the totalitarian state in Monday’s New York Times. So what took the paper so long to acknowledge the brutality of the regime? The timing seems calculated to embarrass President Trump, in Singapore at a summit meeting with the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Mere months ago the Times was celebrating Kim's sister on the front page:"Flashing a sphinx-like smile and without ever speaking in public, Ms. Kim managed to outflank Mr. Trump’s envoy to the Olympics, Vice President Mike Pence, in the game of diplomatic image-making."
When the two leaders were just a couple of hours from meeting each other, the liberal media were grasping at straws to find some way to attack and discredit the summit. On Monday’s (U.S. time) edition of CNN’s OutFront, host Erin Burnett was so desperate to find something to complain and fear monger about she actually suggested Trump was too jetlagged to be effective. It was something her panel pounced on to sew concern about the President’s ability to strike a deal.
Just a few hours before President Trump was scheduled to sit down with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un for a historic summit for peace and denuclearization on Monday, CBS correspondent Bianna Golodryga chided the President’s ability to negotiate in the United States’ best interest.
Venezuela's descent under Bolivarian socialist President and de facto dictator Nicolas Maduro has achieved yet another grim milestone. This time it's the return of polio, on top of other previously eradicated diseases including diphtheria, tuberculosis, measles, and malaria. The return of polio has caught the attention of some in the international press in the past few days, but only one of over a dozen related English stories found in early Monday afternoon Eastern Time Google News searches identified the nation or its leader as socialist. Also as of Monday afternoon, there was no coverage at major U.S. news outlets.
A Net Neutrality-free Internet – is the Internet status quo. It’s “The Internet as we know it.”
Everything you knew about the Internet the first two-plus decades – is what you know about the Internet now.
Everything else being flung at you by the Media-Left – is just ideological monkey poo.
Friday morning, ABC News ignored a story that broke overnight that revealed how some reporters were using unethical means to obtain and leak information about the Trump Administration. The Justice Department announced late Thursday that the former head of security for the Senate Intelligence Committee, James Wolfe, was arrested and indicted for lying to the FBI about his leaking of information to the media. His primary contact? New York Times’ reporter Ali Watkins, whom he just happened to have a three-year romantic relationship with.
On Wednesday, media outlets began reporting of a draft Justice Department Inspector General report floating around that was highly critical of former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. But come Thursday evening, both CBS and NBC failed to mention it even though they each had the opportunity to report the development during two of evening broadcasts and their morning shows.
Despite the report showing how the Obama administration lied in Congressional oversight hearings about the access it would allow Iran, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) along with Spanish-language outlets Univision and Telemundo completely ignored the bombshell during their evening newscasts. It’s the latest in a disturbing series of pro-Iran moves by these networks.
Tuesday marked the second edition of Chris Cuomo’s new show, Cuomo Prime Time. It’s quickly becoming clear that the show will just be another platform for liberal anger on CNN. Anthony Scaramucci, former White House Press Secretary, joined Cuomo for a discussion about Donald Trump rescinding the invitation of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles to visit the White House. Scaramucci took the opportunity to call out Cuomo for not highlighting President Trump’s recent and meaningful victories.
The liberal media would do anything to protect former President Obama’s legacy, even siding with the radical Islamic regime in Iran apparently. That seemed to be the case Tuesday evening as all three of the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored Iran announcing they planned to ramp up their uranium enrichment program during their evening broadcasts. There was also a report by the New York Times that said the Iranians had recently completed construction of a “centrifuge assembly center.”
The highest court in the land sided with Phillips because the Colorado Civil Rights Commission subjected him to what could be argued was anti-religious bigotry. But despite the historic nature of the ruling, broadcast network news outlets ABC and NBC were more relieved that the ruling had a “limited” scope and seemingly only applied to this one case.
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin twisted himself into knots on Monday in an attempt to prove that President Trump was guilty of – well, something. Toobin insisted on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer that the President was “obsessing” over the idea of pardoning himself, then inferred that that was itself evidence of guilt. “You have to ask yourself, why is he raising this subject?” Toobin asked disingenuously. “Is there a guilty conscience at work?”
