MSNBC TORCHES CNN, Dems for Not Making Debate About Parnas, Ukraine
January 15th, 2020 1:20 AM
Late Tuesday, MSNBC made sure to express their anger and disappointment with not only CNN, the Des Moines Register, and the moderators, but all six 2020 Democratic presidential candidates for skipping over newly-released impeached documents from Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas and refusing to make it the focus of the debate. Awhile into the airing of grievances, lyin’ Brian Williams…
Bloomberg Does Not Rule Out Spending $1,000,000,000 to Beat Trump
January 14th, 2020 11:12 AM
Liberal billionaire and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg may have just one-upped fellow liberal billionaire Tom Steyer in anti-Trump spending by being willing to burn through an unheard-of amount of money to defeat President Donald Trump.
Mika Brzezinski Appalled That Buttigieg Is Receiving Criticism
April 23rd, 2019 10:09 AM
South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is rising in the polls and therefore, is starting to face criticism from fellow Democratic presidential contenders who see him as a threat. While most would say this is only natural, MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski expressed deep concern on Tuesday that Buttigieg is now receiving criticism.
Press Found UAC Trafficking in Jan. 2016, Did No White House Follow-up
June 19th, 2018 10:31 PM
The press has gone into hyperbolic overdrive criticizing the Trump administration for separating families caught illegally crossing into the U.S. from Mexico. They clearly want the public, against all evidence, to believe that questionable processing of illegal-immigrant children and their families only began after Donald Trump took office last year. But in January 2016, the Associated Press, the…
Unhinged Colbert: Iran Deal Was 'An American Promise' and a 'Treaty'
May 10th, 2018 8:51 PM
Since Donald Trump's election, America's late-night show hosts have abandoned genuine comedy in favor of rabid, anti-Trump resistance. That's certainly their perogative. But if that's how they want it, they should be called out when they attempt to rewrite history as Stephen Colbert did Tuesday night. The Late Show host claimed that the now-nixed Iran deal was an "American…
Is AP Throwing a Tantrum Over Losing Its Press Briefing Priority?
January 25th, 2017 5:32 PM
Since last decade, it's been White House tradition that the press secretary typically calls on an Associated Press reporter to ask the first question at briefings. Trump administration Press Secretary Sean Spicer has not selected AP for the first question at either of his first two briefings, and numerous press outlets have noted that avoidance. It's more than fair to ask, given the…
Unproven 'Fake News' Media Meme: Russia 'Hacked the Elections'
December 30th, 2016 2:26 PM
The purveyors of what the establishment press likes to describe as "fake news" have nothing on the fake news the establishment press itself generates at the Obama administration's behest.
For example, the Associated Press, in a very late paragraph in just one of its three reports on the topic Thursday, admitted that "Though the FBI and Homeland Security Department issued a…
Obama to NYT: My Admin Hasn't Had the 'Kinds of Scandals' Others Have
November 22nd, 2016 6:42 PM
At a Sunday press briefing in Lima, Peru, President Barack Obama concluded his response to a question referring to how President-Elect Trump might consider handling his extensive holdings during his presidency by saying that "I am extremely proud of the fact that over eight years we have not had the kinds of scandals that have plagued other administrations."
AP's Lederman Bemoans 'Sense of Despair' Among Obama's Aides
November 22nd, 2016 2:16 PM
As I noted yesterday in covering its pathetic hit piece on President-Elect Donald Trump's announced appointments, the Associated Press is high on the list of media outlets most simultaneously outraged and grief-stricken over the presidential election result two weeks ago.
While the AP's Errin Haines Whack betrayed intense anger with Trump's selections thus far, the wire service…
Journalists Fail to Correct Obama Howler on Economy
November 16th, 2016 12:36 AM
At a press conference in Greece on Tuesday, President Barack Obama claimed that when he came into office, "the economy was contracting faster than it did during the Great Depression, but we were able to intervene, apply lessons learned and stabilize and then begin growth again." Naturally, Elena Becatoros and Josh Lederman at the Associated Press and Gardiner Harris at the New York…
AP Pity Party: 'Obama Must Find a Way to Explain Trump' to the World
November 12th, 2016 11:16 AM
The Associated Press and reporter Josh Lederman are feeling sorry for outgoing President Barack Obama. Shortly after 9 a.m. on Saturday morning, in advance of Obama's last foreign tour, the AP's headline at Lederman's dispatch read: "On last foreign tour, Obama must find a way to explain Trump."
Lederman wrote that our poor, put-upon president "must pivot and…
AP Misreports Obama's 'Hallowed Ground' Reference to Midway Island
September 2nd, 2016 5:06 PM
It's hard to imagine a press report accomplishing the following three things at once: disrespecting U.S. servicemen, demonstrating fever-swamp presumptive support for the one-world "climate change" agenda, and vastly overstating a 2.4-mile atoll's significance to "native tradition."
In a Tuesday morning dispatch, the Associated Press's Josh Lederman, in covering…
AP: Thanks Only to U.S., UK's 'Leave' Vote Won't Lead to Its 'Demise'
July 6th, 2016 9:38 PM
Saturday at the Associated Press, aka the Admininstration's Press, Josh Lederman ran interference for President Barack Obama's conveniently timed Brexit vote flip-flop. Obama has now reversed his Aoril threat — and yes, it was a threat — that the United Kingdom would go to the "back of the queue" to get a U.S. trade deal if "Leave" supporters won the…
USA Today: Obama Commuted Sentences of Only 'Low-Level Inmates'
April 3rd, 2016 5:56 PM
The antennae went up when I saw the following tease on the front page of Thursday's USA Today print edition: "Obama commutes sentences for 61 low-level inmates." The brief description which immediately followed told readers that "He has cut sentences for 248 so far, more than (the) previous 6 presidents combined, official says."
Hmm. What's a "low-level inmate…
