With just three weeks to go, major newspapers (with a circulation of at least 50,000) are walloping Donald Trump in their official endorsements, favoring Hillary Clinton by a count of 68 to zero. Out of a total of 82 newspapers that have offered an editorial on who their readers should vote for, 68 (83 percent) of them have endorsed Hillary Clinton, five (6 percent) recommended Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, two (2 percent) advised to vote for anybody but Trump and seven (9 percent) newspapers offered no endorsement at all.
A June 30 Boston Globe editorial moaned about how "state funding for youth jobs" in Massachusetts "faces damaging cuts." Two kinds of "cuts" are occurring. One is, as of the time of the editorial, an absolute cut in dollar funding for the related government program, known as YouthWorks. However, there is another more significant cut in the number of jobs which could be provided even if dollar funding had stayed the same because of ... wait for it ... the Bay State's minimum wage increase from $10 per hour to $11 (HT PJ Media; bolds are mine):
As they’ve done so often with The New York Times and New York Daily News, the liberal media faithfully bowed in awe of another left-wing front-page editorial as Thursday’s Boston Globe demanded gun control in the aftermath of the Orlando terror attack. Both CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today graciously displayed the cover at the top of their programs while fawning over the Senate Democrats filibuster instructing Republicans capitulate to them to do something and everything on gun control.
MRC president Brent Bozell appeared on the Fox Business program After The Bell on Monday to discuss the strange Boston Globe fake front-page mocking what “President Trump” was doing in the White House.
Former New York Times reporter Judith Miller praised the stunt as " a very creative response to make people pay attention to what Donald Trump has been saying," but Bozell wasn’t having it, as Fox Business host Melissa Francis pointed out the Globe’s precarious business situation:
The Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes appeared with Neil Cavuto, Monday, to slam the “sophomoric,” “absurd” Boston Globe for printing a fake front cover that speculated on what a future Trump presidency might be. Noyes derided the effort to pass off a stunt editorial as real news “As a political hit job, this is pretty sophomoric. It's absurd.”
Sunday is not April Fools’ Day, but the Boston Globe is running an enormous prank – a fake front page (dated 2017) satirizing President Trump.
The banner headline reads: “Deportations to begin, President Trump calls for tripling of ICE force; riots continue.” The main story includes mentions of Attorney General Chris Christie, and Fox News star Megyn Kelly tweeting from a bar because she’s been placed on a White House blacklist.
If we had today's establishment press covering America just before the Revolution, few would have learned of Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me to death!" If they had been covering the Revolutionary War itself, there would have been a blackout on Nathan Hale's "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country."
Today's establishment press does anything and everything it can to keep important statements by people it despises out of the news. Thus, despite regularly perusing media outlets on a daily basis, it is intensely frustrating that I only learned about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's unforgettable five-word fundamental truth about Islamic terrorism by reading an Investor's Business Daily editorial.
Last Sunday at a rally for Ted Cruz in Iowa, two liberal college students from Massachusetts decided to play a prank on the GOP candidate and garner some media attention. They succeeded with a featured article in the Boston Globe and the Associated Press February 1, and the Washington Post February 2. The AP story was picked up by several news outlets including ABCNews.com.
Right from the get go you know that Boston Globe columnist Joanna Weiss is not a bit serious in her ridiculous suggestion on how to defeat Donald Trump. Her not at all subtle goal is really to compare Trump to former Klansman David Duke so as to smear him as a racist without actually saying so.
Wednesday's CBS This Morning raved over the new movie Spotlight, which touts the work of the investigative reporters at the liberal Boston Globe who chronicled the Catholic priest sex abuse scandal in the Archdiocese of Boston. Gayle King gushed, "Gosh, that movie was so good." She later labeled the movie "very powerful." Fill-in anchor Kristen Johnson asserted that the new release was "such a fantastic movie."
While Hollywood and The Boston Globe would want you to believe that the new movie Spotlight is an impartial dramatization of the paper's 2002 reporting on sex abuse in the Catholic Church in Boston, the truth is something else entirely.
As Spotlight slowly makes its way to theaters across the country, mainstream media movie reviewers are grossly distorting the truth about the Catholic Church sex abuse story.
The media are pushing Spotlight, the movie that opens on Friday about the Boston Globe team that exposed priestly sexual abuse in the Boston Archdiocese prior to 2002. But there is little interest in this issue when non-Catholics are implicated in such crimes. As recent cases show, many courts around the nation evince disparate treatment as well.
