'AP Explains' on Jerusalem Omits Prior Promises, Resolution, 1995 Law
December 9th, 2017 4:24 PM
A Friday morning attempt by the Associated Press's Tia Goldenberg to "explain" the "US pivot on Jerusalem" failed to make three crucial points: First, that three ultimately victorious U.S. presidential candidates promised that they would formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and failed to deliver on those promises; second, that just six months…
Tucker Carlson Mocks Chicago Tribune Coverage of Illegal Hiring Scam
December 6th, 2017 10:43 AM
In a story which should have been recognized at least two months and possibly 5-6 months ago but which remained unreported until last week, a Chicago bakery lost one-third of its workforce in July. Press reports during the past week, most prominently one from Bloomberg News seen in the Chicago Tribune and elsewhere, won't directly admit what should be obvious, though the company involved is…

Monolithic Liberal Media Warns of Trump Aiding 'Media Consolidation'
November 21st, 2017 10:55 AM
The Left is incessantly freaking about all sorts of things - about which very little freaking is actually necessary. The Media is - by-and-large - the Left’s megaphone. About whatever the Left is freaking - you’ll find the Media freaking. Only louder, with many, MANY more outlets with which to amplify the freaking.

Remember When Television Was Entertaining?
October 28th, 2017 10:35 AM
For those who have visited Florida’s Walt Disney World, there is an attraction at the Magic Kingdom called the Carousel of Progress, a tribute to an original attraction Walt made for the New York World’s Fair in 1964.

Press Drags 'Won't Rule Outs' From Flake, Corker on 2020 Prez Runs
October 28th, 2017 6:15 AM
This week, demonstrating why they're so despised by so many, the press created headlines out of thin air that Senators Bob Corker of Tennessee and Jeff Flake of Arizona, each of whom has announced that they will not run for re-election in 2018, "won't rule out" presidential runs in 2020. In each instance, the Senators' statements leading to headlines weren't…

Bloomberg, Quartz Waste Readers' Time on Trivial Renewables Job Growth
October 27th, 2017 3:59 PM

AP Covers Up 'Honor'- and Muslim-Related Aspects of Cleveland Murder
October 23rd, 2017 9:12 PM
On Tuesday, a man admitted that, as written up at Cleveland.com, the website of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, he killed his 27-year-old daughter in September 2016 "because he felt she disrespected his rules about coming home late and failing to clean up her room."

Troubled AP Has Become Less Transparent and Accountable
October 22nd, 2017 7:54 PM
In recent months, it has become quite obvious that the Associated Press has made conscious moves designed to make its output and journalistic operations less transparent. It's also reasonable to ask whether these moves are also motivated by a desire to hide what appears to be a significant shrinkage in its available resources and perhaps even its number of personnel.
AP Pollsters Disappointed? Las Vegas Massacre Didn't Change Gun Views
October 21st, 2017 11:57 PM
On Friday, Lisa Marie Pane and Emily Swanson at the Associated Press betrayed more than a little sadness that "The slaying of five dozen people in Las Vegas did little to change Americans’ opinions about gun laws." This unfortunate (in their view) polling result was achieved despite a ridiculous weighting of the poll's sample towards Democrats accompanied by a failure to…

October 13th, 2017 11:57 PM
On Wednesday, "the Cook County (Illinois) Board of Commissioners repealed the penny-an-ounce levy on sweetened beverages it passed last November." The inflammatory "Big Soda" label appears frequently in press coverage of this reversal of what the government-always-knows-best crowd had thought was a major nanny-state victory, and reflects the fact that many in the media…
AP Boosts LGBT Activists' Lament Over 'Rarely Used' Hate Crime Laws
September 28th, 2017 6:39 PM
AP's David Crary filed a slanted report on Thursday that spotlighted the complaints of left-wing organizations regarding hate crime laws that, in their view, are "rarely used to prosecute the slayings" of "transgender" individuals. Crary zeroed in on a murder case in Missouri where " a transgender teen...was stabbed in the genitals." He used the homicide as…
AP Hypes God-'Embracing' Moore's Win; Touts Alabama's Segregation Past
September 27th, 2017 6:36 PM
Jay Reeves and Kim Chandler did their best to portray Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore as an extremist in a Wednesday item for the Associated Press. The pair led their report by playing up that Moore "wouldn’t stand a chance in many Senate races after defying federal court orders, describing Islam as a false religion, calling homosexuality evil and pulling out a revolver on stage…
