A study from Cornell University claims YouTube channels that feature prominent conservative figures are “infecting” users with alt-right beliefs. “Auditing Radicalization Pathways on YouTube,” written by five academics, concluded that “channels in the Intellectual Dark Web (IDW) and the Alt-lite would be gateways to fringe far right ideology.” The study, released August 22, linked The Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro, Dr. Jordan Peterson, comedian and host Joe Rogan, and host Dave Rubin to fringe racist figures like Richard Spencer and Jared Taylor.
WASHINGTON -- Over the weekend in the Wall Street Journal, Brian Lamb, the founder of C-Span, tendered a Solomonic statement in his valedictory interview after some 40 years before the television cameras. Said Lamb, “Lying is the word that I would use to describe this town.” And he went on, “I don't know if it will ever stop. It's gotten worse rather then getting better, and both sides do it.
The MRC’s Tim Graham appeared on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal on Saturday and slammed the smug CNN for its claim to a hold on truth. Host Bill Scanlan read from S.E. Cupp’s op-ed ripping into Sean Hannity for failing to disclose a relationship with Donald Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen.
In an interview Monday with C-SPAN, Hillary Clinton denied that any of the new stories on Russian manipulation of the Clintons and the world uranium market are true. “I would say it’s the same bologna they’ve been peddling for years,” the scandal-ridden Democrat said during an interview on C-SPAN, “and there’s been no credible evidence by anyone. In fact, it’s been debunked repeatedly and will continue to be debunked.”
Our recurring joke - that is itself a ceaselessly recurring joke - is when we mention the “Media-Left,” we always follow it with “please pardon the redundancy.” The Media-Left merger is now seamless. I could hand you a New York Times article and a Daily Kos article - and you would be hard pressed to determine which is which (aside from the latter’s propensity for profanity).
As Rush Limbaugh repeatedly points out - the Media are the horse, the Left merely the cart the Media drags along behind. And the Democrat Party is the inert, inept product in the cart - dragged along by both.
NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham appeared on the C-SPAN interview program Washington Journal on Sunday morning to discuss the "war" between the media and the Trump administration. Trump's waging a war? Graham said "Well, yes, he is, in a way, and for many people, for many conservatives who didn’t necessarily back him in the primaries, it was the best part of Trump. Because we have an arrogant liberal media that needs to be taken down a peg." At the end of the half hour, Graham dared the news media to refute the notion they were an "opposition party" to Republicans by showing the public how they voted in November.
If Ashley Judd’s R-rated rant comparing President Donald Trump’s team to the Nazis wasn’t insane enough, loony Madonna admitted to wanting to kill the newly inaugurated president of United States. “Yes, I am angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” she proclaimed to the hundreds of thousands of march attendees in Washington, DC on Saturday. But yet, she started her address declaring, “Welcome to the revolution of love!”
Of all the far-left, wacky statements made at Saturday’s Women’s March, actress Ashley Judd may take the top honor (or DisHonor) for an R-rated tangent against “Electoral College-sanctioned hate speech” by President Trump and his team of “Nazis” capturing “little girls like Pokemon” and Ivanka Trump as his “favorite sex symbol.”
Demonstrating the power of fake news to influence uninformed people, just-elected Democratic Senator Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire brought up a thoroughly discredited Washington Post story at the Senate confirmation hearing for Former General John Kelly. President-Elect Donald Trump has nominated Kelly to be the nation's next head of the Department of Homeland Security. Hassan brought up the Post's story on a late-December "infrastructure" attack by "a hacking group connected with the Russian government" on a Vermont utility as if it was an established fact — which, of course, it's not.
The Washington Examiner’s T. Becket Adams exposed on Tuesday morning in a series of tweets the very problem that besets a liberal media obsessed with placing legitimate conservative sites into the sphere of the fake news when a number of journalists chided Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for comments at CPAC 2014 regarding school lunches thanks to a dishonest hatchet job by Time magazine.
According to the Media Research Center’s Tim Graham, biased journalists are treating Donald Trump as “some sort of epic threat to the country and has to be stopped.” The MRC’s director of media analysis appeared on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal on Tuesday to explain how journalists are leaping on Trump’s latest scandal and ignoring Hillary Clinton’s controversies.
Throwing Debbie Wasserman Schultz under the bus apparently wasn't enough to calm the atmosphere at the opening of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
Today, it became clear that like many others, Bernie's fans are not persuaded by the establishment press's predictable pro-Hillary posturing about how the convention will be "magic," with "perfect chemistry" between Hillary Clinton and her VP pick Tim Kaine, the "most qualfied ticket in history."
