UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has proclaimed a new global initiative against hate speech. Guterres lamented that “hate” is moving into the mainstream and has “poisoned” debate on migration policy. He claimed this is done via “false narratives linking refugees and migrants to terrorism and scapegoating them for many of society's ills.”
Moments after this NewsBusters post was published, CNN came out with an exclusive statement to Mediaite’s Aidan McLaughlin that the Jeffrey Zucker-led network had cut ties with Hill following his disturbing and embarrassing speech Wednesday at the United Nations against Israel that included an endorsement of violence against the Jewish people.
New York Times reporter Gardiner Harris latest hit on a conservative foreign policy figure appears to have backfired in spectacular fashion. Harris's report isupposedly caught United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley for wild spending on her official residence, “Envoy’s View of City is Priceless. The Curtains? $52,000.” The text box: “A purchase was made at a time when the State Dept. was slashing its budget.” Or maybe not. The decision to purchase the curtains for the official residence, as well as the move to a new residence, was made in 2016, during the Obama administration.
United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley pressured a Washington Post "Wonkblog" reporter into deleting tweets that wrongly quoted her in response to the U.N. claims about "extreme poverty" in America. Stein wrote a story cheekly claiming that Team Trump was claiming victory in the "war on poverty."
The world’s ambassador for peace and self-righteousness, Bono hasn’t been holding up well in light of recent criticisms against the UN and NATO.
An arm of the “world’s biggest news and information provider” is suggesting #MeToo helped the U.S. becoming one of the most dangerous countries in the world for women. That puts it on par with Syria – a country accused by the U.N. of government-endorsed rape.
An obviously agenda-driven report on extreme poverty from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights accuses the U.S. under the Trump administration of, in the UN group's words, "becoming a champion of inequality." It also claims that, because of its policies, "the American dream is rapidly becoming the American illusion." As one might expect, many the press have eagerly relayed the UN group's Trump-blaming findings, even though the statistics undergirding the UN group's efforts predate Donald Trump's inauguration.
While observing World Press Freedom Day on May 3, MSNBC aired an advertisement encouraging viewers to watch not just that liberal channel, but also follow more than 25 other left-leaning sources and newspapers while not mentioning Fox, the most-watched news network on cable TV. The spot, which was created by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), begins by stating: “Don’t just watch MSNBC” and concludes with the motto: “Read more. Watch more. Understand more.”
NBC and MSNBC have been on a crusade during the Christmas season to smear and slam the United States at every opportunity because of the Trump administration’s new direction in dealing with the inept United Nations. During Tuesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, fill-in host Ayman Mohyeldin and former Obama-era Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Evelyn Farkas were worried that the U.S. negotiated spending cut was politically motivated and that the administration’s attitude towards the U.N. could harm the U.N. mission of preventing “global war.”
NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell played the role of Obama administration hack on Monday afternoon, bewailing President Trump’s national security speech as a rejection of his predecessor’s world view on everything from climate change to Israel to trade to the United Nations.
President Trump, fulfilling a promise that other presidents have made but failed to keep, recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and started the process of moving the American Embassy from Tel Aviv. Times reporters were predictably aghast, both downplaying Jewish ties to Jerusalem and warning of violence and endangement of the non-existent "peace process."
On September 16, social media lit up with a Wall Street Journal breaking news report that the Trump Administration is seeking ways to stay in the Paris Climate Treaty. After working with dozens of other free market, pro-liberty groups for six months encouraging the President to keep one of his most important campaign promises — to withdraw from the economy-killing and poverty producing Paris climate accord — I feared the worst.
