The level of chutzpah is high for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which smeared Richard Jewell as a bomber in 1996, and refused to pay him one red cent in remorse, and now protests that one of its reporters is unjustly smeared in the new Clint Eastwood film titled Richard Jewell.
The hosts of The View talked briefly Tuesday about Clint Eastwood’s latest biographical film on fake news victim Richard Jewell, who was falsely branded by the media as a terrorist in 1996. Instead of discussing the media’s culpability in ruining this man’s life, however, Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin attacked Eastwood instead for his film’s depiction of a now-deceased Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter.
Timing is everything for living legend Clint Eastwood The actor/director served up American Sniper after Hollywood stopped firing cinematic shots at the U.S. Military. The results? Sniper earned $350 million at the U.S. box office. Two years later Eastwood directed Sully, just when movie goers craved a true American hero story. That movie hauled in $125 million domestically.
Radical pro-abortion celebrities are threatening Georgia legislators over a new pro-life bill that would ban abortion at six weeks, or when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is first detectable. Referred to as heartbeat bills, these laws emphasize the truth about abortion: it ALWAYS stops a heartbeat.
Although the mainstream media continues to deny the many allegations of corruption and fraud against the Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes, even they are forced to concede the overwhelming evidence of incompetence on her part. The absurdly high level of incompetence on display by Snipes is too much for a few in the liberal media, which would normally be expected to jump to her defense especially since the highly questionable Broward ballots threaten to deprive Rick Scott of his U.S. Senate victory over incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson.
The press has mostly gone off the rails in covering President Trump's proposal to rescind $15 billion in unspent funds, insisting on characterizing the move as "cuts." The competition for the worst coverage is fierce, but Andrew Taylor's story at the Associated Press, as carried at the Washington Post, probably wins the prize for the most incoherent headline: "Administration proposes cutting $15 billion in unused funds."
After the horrific mass murder of churchgoers in Texas this past Sunday, the media was ready and set to blame guns and gun owners, yet again for the unconscionable violence. But it wasn’t just journalists penning their politically-driven tirades, it was also their paper’s cartoonists too.
Imagine if a candidate during a debate makes a statement so outright erroneous that the debate moderator takes time to fact check him with the truth. A very notable moment you might say. Well, not according to a couple of liberal newspapers, including a local one, who again acted as information cloaking devices by not mentioning the debate moderator correction. This was the case in the June 8 debate between Karen Handel and Jon Ossoff, candidates in the Georgia 6th Congressional District special election.
Candidate struck dumb by opponent's question. Would that not strike you as a dramatic moment in a political debate? You probably would agree and so do most media outlets that reported on the June 6 debate between Karen Handel and Jon Ossoff running in the June 20 special election for Georgia's 6th Congressional District. In fact many reports headlined the moment that Ossoff was asked by Handel who he would vote for in that election. Mediaite was among the outlets that featured that debate moment by observing that "Karen Handel Silences Jon Ossoff With One Simple Question During Congressional Debate":
On Friday, Georgia Congressman John Lewis, whose 5th District includes the City of Atlanta, said of Donald Trump that "I don’t see the president-elect as a legitimate president." Trump characteristically fired back with a two-part tweet firing back at Lewis. As would be expected, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution rushed to Lewis's defense. In its apparent haste to do so, a pair of journalists at the paper committed a colossal math blunder which vastly understated the city's crime rate, making the city look over 13 times safer than it really is.
In Congressional testimony on Monday and Tuesday, Planned Parenthood head Cecile Richards twisted or failed to tell the truth in several instances.
As shown last night, one of them related to how many of its facilities are involved in the provision of fetal tissue for compensation. Her claim that it's "less than 1 percent" is only plausible if the organization has recently terminated such involvement at many facilities known to have participated in the practice in the recent past. A second more obviously untrue claim, whose falsehood has been completely ignored by the national establishment press, is her contention that "we've never stated" that Planned Parenthood performs mammograms at any of its facilities. Well, yes she has — and as will be seen later, an awful lot of people who you might think would know better still believe the lie.
When the government pushes to destroy
On June 1, the Environmental Protection Agency unveiled drastic new limits on carbon emissions, mandating steep emission cuts within 16 years. It’s a move that may cost hundreds of thousands of jobs each year, but only 13 of the 20 major United States newspapers discussed the issue in editorials. Eleven of those papers actually promoted the new regulations with editorials or official endorsements – from their editorial board.
