In a Friday radio interview, Hillary Clinton failed to answer a question about her hostile, orchestrated actions against women who credibly accused her husband of sexual harassment and assault during the 1990s. In the process, she accused the alleged victims of "misremembering or misinterpreting history." On Laura Ingraham's Friday evening Fox News show, Paula Jones took strong exception to Mrs. Clinton's nonsense. Naturally, the establishment press hasn't covered what Mrs. Clinton said.
Those who wonder why the average American no longer trusts the establishment press to report fairly and accurately, or even to defend basic First Amendment freedoms, need to look no further than yesterday's tweet by New York Times reporter Nicole Perlroth about Joe Biden's heavily documented creepy behavior towards women, particularly younger women. Rather than accept the idea that the man has a problem, Perlroth wants Twitter to "handle" this "alt-right fake-news meme."
In a Friday New York Times op-ed, Rossalyn Warren, described as "a journalist who regularly covers women’s rights and internet culture," wants Facebook to expand its definition of "fake news" to include "the vast amount of misinformation and unevidenced stories about reproductive rights, science and health." That is, Warren wants to marginalize and even silence legitimate pro-life messages, sites, facts, and viewpoints.
The gun-control crowd quickly ratcheted down its political opportunism in the wake of Sunday's Sutherland Springs, Texas church massacre once it became known that a "good guy with a gun" put a stop to Devin Kelley's killing spree, saving dozens of lives. At RedState on Wednesday, Carl Arbogast noted that what remained was a double standard in press descriptions of the respective weapons used by Kelley and Stephen Willeford, the man who stopped him.
A "fierce backlash" has caused the Walt Disney Company to reverse its decision to bar the Los Angeles Times from press screenings of its movies following an investigation by the newspaper into the media giant’s business dealings in Anaheim, California. Disney’s change of course on Tuesday came after a number of news outlets, including the Washington Post, the New York Times and the A.V. Club -- an entertainment website featuring reviews and interviews that examine films, music, television, books, games and other elements of pop culture -- said they were all boycotting advance screenings of Disney films “in solidarity” with the Los Angeles newspaper.
The Associated Press has suddenly discovered that homelessness is a serious problem in the nation's three West Coast states of California, Oregon, and Washington, and that the problem merits national attention. How convenient — and how tardy.
Now that Hillary Clinton has admitted that her campaign and the Democratic National Committee — which we now know her campaign totally controlled beginning in August 2015 — paid Fusion GPS for the infamous Trump-Russia dossier, it's long past time that people understand the full scope of what that firm, which has been serially misrepresented as just another "opposition research" outlet, has done to change the media landscape. Don't count on the establishment press to do it, because, as we'll see, Fusion has played a major role in corrupting their determination of what "news" is, how it gets covered — and how it gets covered up.
CNN Tonight host Don Lemon reacted to the Thursday night kerfuffle over a departing Twitter employee briefly deactivating President Trump’s Twitter account by joking that someone should “hire that person.” He also suggested that the President shouldn’t be using his Twitter account as his chief means of communication, but neglected the reality that most public officials have accounts that could be susceptible to fake tweets or shutdowns.
On Thursday night, the internet briefly descended into chaos as President Donald Trump’s personal Twitter account had disappeared and was nowhere to be found until it was restored 11 minutes later. The account reappeared without explanation until Twitter’s official electoral and government relations account provided a bizarre explanation that it was “due to human error by a Twitter employee.”
On Friday's episode of The View, there was a panel discussion on whether "some" of Judeo-Christianity's Ten Commandments are "obsolete." During that discussion, co-host Paula Faris mentioned "Jesus" twice. A video of the segment at the show's YouTube channel cuts the audio both times Faris uttered His now apparently forbidden offensive name.
The liberal press’s contempt for the intelligence of the American people was on full display on Friday’s Morning Joe as columnists and reporters from The Washington Post, the Associated Press, and USA Today all joined in a united chorus to insult the public as being too stupid to parse the difference between truth and propaganda. Moreover, once again, the show’s panelists also used their platform to call for government regulation of social media to stop “election meddling.”
When they're not ignoring these matters completely, the press only usually only reluctantly notices when conservative business owners and public figures are harassed, threatened, have their property destroyed, and are sometimes even physically harmed. Beyond that, some press members seem to and sometimes actually act as if the victims should know, understand and accept that this kind of treatment comes with the territory when one expresses views that offend leftist sensibilities. One such person is former CNN and current Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan.
