As part of the liberal media’s obsession with Omarosa’s salacious allegations against the President from her book tour, Tuesday’s White House Press Briefing featured nearly four times as many questions about Omarosa-related topics as all other matters. Specifically, the breakdown was 39 Omarosa questions by 11 reporters to 10 questions for everything else from seven journalists (Afghanistan, Chinese influence in South America, ISIS, the Mueller probe, and Turkey).
CNN’s Twitter account used an old liberal standby, “seize,” to denigrate Trump’s (factual) statement about the Tuesday morning terror attack in London: "President Donald Trump seizes on what he calls a 'terrorist attack' in London, even though the incident is still in the early stages of investigation." CNN's tweet linked to Jennfier Hansler’s equally silly story. Never mind that both the Associated Press and London's mayor had tweeted out similar statements earlier.
Terry Mattingly at Get Religion was a little stunned at coverage of the latest additions to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, at how they seemed allergic to any mention of religious content -- and there was a lot of religious content.
California is burning. Multiple wildfires are claiming lives and property and the smoke is so bad, even Yosemite had to be evacuated. News outlets should be reporting all the factors that contributed to the terrible fires and not exploit tragedy to score political points. Instead, the liberal media have been latching onto the fires as evidence of the threat of climate change and bashing the Trump administration every chance they get.
The Associated Press is REALLY worried about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The AP posted an article on Tuesday alerting that a “hard-right” Court might come back to haunt the GOP. On Monday, the news outlet suggested that “devout Catholic” judges like Kavanaugh might have trouble “upholding the law as written” in light of the Pope’s new decree on the death penalty.
With the trial of Paul Manafort -- one of the campaign heads for Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign -- set to begin Tuesday, several people in the "mainstream media" are hoping to learn some tiny but significant fact that could lead to the impeachment of the Republican occupant of the White House. Unfortunately for those in the press with dreams of taking down Trump, the facts in the trial will overwhelmingly focus on Manafort’s lavish lifestyle instead of any hints of collusion between the campaign and the Russians.
As NFL teams are gathering for preseason camp, Associated Press sports writer Paul Newberry suggests the league's social justice warriors play a huge Trump card if free agents Colin Kaepernick (center in photo) and Eric Reid (right in photo) aren't signed soon. Both former San Francisco 49ers disrespected veterans and the national anthem by kneeling during the final year of their contracts, incurring the wrath of fans and the good sense of owners not to hire them. Newberry is encouraging the players to go on strike until the two pariahs are signed.
Flying in the face of reality, CBS News and the Associated Press issued a joint “fact-check” of the President this week, claiming that he was wrong to call the infamous DNC-funded Steele dossier a “Clinton campaign document.”
On Monday afternoon, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell was still pushing the debunked claim that the Trump administration is kicking immigrants out of the U.S. military as she interviewed former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.
The Washington Post's Express tabloid carried an AP Supreme Court nomination dispatch as its cover story. “Trump savors the reveal” was the headline. AP reporters Catherine Lucey and Zeke Miller began a story on this “Supreme show” with all of the president’s current political headaches.
One of the left’s biggest weapons is identity politics, and the media will continually ignore facts to keep this weapon functional. This is especially true regarding Christians, whom the media label as bigots and oppressors. They can never be seen as victims and so the media report accordingly.
In late June, Politico's Josh Gerstein reported that the Associated Press, in a 2017 meeting with FBI and Justice Department officials a month before the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, had voluntarily "disclosed the existence of a storage locker used by Paul Manafort." A Sunday report by Gerstein further revealed that AP gave FBI-DOJ "a bevy of facts" about Manafort's business dealings. Two internal FBI memos released in Friday court filings documenting that meeting's discussions indicate that the wire service essentially gave the FBI and DOJ a roadmap for investigating and prosecuting Manafort, effectively acting as unpaid informants.
