In a podcast posted on Monday, CNN's Don Lemon told National Review's Jamie Weinstein that some pro-Trump panelists on his show have admitted that, in Weinstein's words, "they don't believe what they are saying" — as if knee-jerk leftists never engage in such disingenuous behavior (sure, Don). Lemon apparently has no problem allowing people who have allegedly admitted to this behavior to continue serving as panelists. Lemon's statement is a de facto admission that he and his network are willing to broadcast fake opinions.
The Daily Caller's Eric Lieberman reported early Friday afternoon that Google is discontinuing (for now) its "fact-check" feature. The company is now characterizing the effort, which the Daily Caller exposed as a thinly veiled attempt to target conservative sites while leaving leftists alone, as an "experiment" which has been put "on hold," while the its engineers see, in Lieberman's words, "how they can vastly improve a fact-check system."
On Friday morning, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell released the following open letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in reaction to the latest work by Project Veritas President James O’Keefe that alleged Twitter has "shadow-banned" conservatives.
RESTON, VA -- Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell released the following statement on Thursday praising James O’Keefe’s “extraordinary” work in exposing the efforts of Twitter to censor and silence conservative voices on social media:
Last week, the first two videos released by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas exposed how a now apparently former New York Times employee colluded with the biggest players in social media and online video to favor its content over others. The videos drove a furious Dean Baquet, the paper's executive editor, to criticize that employee and O'Keefe using, of all things, religious terms — "venial" and "mortal" sins, respectively — rarely used outside of a Catholic Church, school, or home. How ironic, given that the Times routinely ridicules and marginalizes mainstream Judeo-Christian faiths and their followers.
Undercover journalist James O’Keefe exposed another left-wing propagandist, this time at the New York Times. Hidden video posted on Tuesday shows Nick Dudich telling Project Veritas that the Times “always” slants stories against Trump.
Everyone who watched the recent Project Veritas video of Van Jones clearly heard him say that "the Russia thing is just a big nothing burger." However, Van Jones appeared on the June 29 Anderson Cooper 360 show to declare that we misinterpreted what he was saying. Jones spun it that what he meant was that the hope for impeachment of President Donald Trump based on the proofless charge of collusion with Russia in the 2016 election was the real "nothing burger."
Here is Van Jones as he spin, spin, spins:
Late Saturday evening, a Donald Trump rally was disrupted as a cry of “gun” caused the Secret Service to leap into action and whisked the candidate away, while the crowd and officers subdued the suspected individual. Austyn Crites was the individual in question but no firearm was located, but he did have a “Republicans Against Trump” sign. With the recent video evidence of Democrats paying to disrupt Trump rallies the incident is suspect, but not to CNN anchor Victor Blackwell and commentator Hilary Rosen who flat out rejected the idea with little evidence.
Students of the Watergate era (or those old enough to have lived through it) will recall the "dirty tricks" played by Richard Nixon's henchmen, most notably Donald Segretti. Segretti, who was hired by Nixon's deputy assistant, Dwight Chapin, was tasked with smearing Democrats, including senator and 1972 presidential candidate, Edmund Muskie of Maine. Among several "tricks," Segretti composed a fake letter on Muskie's letterhead falsely alleging that Sen. Henry "Scoop" Jackson (D-WA) had fathered a child with a 17-year-old girl.
On Monday’s Situation Room, CNN host Wolf Blitzer brushed aside the latest bombshell Project Veritas videos showing liberal operatives planning to instigate violence at Donald Trump rallies simply because “we haven't confirmed those videos” are real before cornering the Republican National’s Sean Spicer over reporters being harassed at Trump events.
The “Big Three” networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) put their undying loyalty to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on full display Monday evening, as they completely blacked out two news stories with explosive consequences for the campaign. “Tonight there is a new undercover video exposing direct links between the Hillary Clinton campaign and outside groups promoting her campaign,” reported Fox News’ Bret Baier on Special Report. Instead of reporting on a potential federal offense they hyped Clinton’s expansion into GOP strongholds.
Even when the New York Times does run articles (not on the front page) about Democratic scandals, it tried desperately to turn attention to old Republican Party controversies. That was the case with two Friday articles involving possible Democratic vote fraud and electoral disruption.
