Rudy Peters. A California Republican congressional candidate is just the latest example of the media’s dreadful problem with bias by omission. Mr. Peters is the Republican candidate for Congress from California’s 15th Congressional District. The other day, while at a campaign table at the Castro Valley Fall Festival a man later identified as 35-year old Farzad Fazeli approached Parker and began berating him, yelling about the Republican Party and President Trump.
Republican Congressional candidate Rudy Peters, who’s running against Democratic incumbent Eric Swalwell in California, was attacked by an assailant wielding a “switchblade” while campaigning at the Castro Valley Falls Festival on Sunday. The news of the attack reached national attention Tuesday afternoon yet none of the major network broadcasters (ABC, CBS, and NBC) thought it was worth mentioning.
On Tuesday, The Washington Post published a nifty little trend piece on rich Hollywood socialites and their newfound political games. Writer Michelle Ye Hee Lee discussed how flipping the House -- as in the U.S. House of Representatives, not the mansion up for grabs in Jennifer Aniston’s latest divorce -- “has blossomed into Hollywood’s nerdy new hobby.”
On Wednesday, an open letter was issued to Nancy Pelosi by the historic Californian newspaper, the Sacramento Bee. The editorial board called on her to step aside in the race for Speaker of the House, citing the good of the Democratic Party. As it stands, 44 Democratic candidates and incumbents say they will not be voting for Pelosi as speaker.
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 New York Times is apologizing for offending Latinos on Monday. The headline was "Readers Call a Travel Story on Los Angeles Dismissive of Latino Culture. They Have a Point." Lynda Richardson and Steve Reddicliffe, editors on the paper's Travel desk, wrote contritely: "Readers took issue with the reference to a historic street in Downtown Los Angeles that sells Jesus statuettes and piñatas as the source of 'all useless items in the world.' We now see how it came across as offensive."
California has released its annual “hate crime” report, and the media is eagerly pouncing on an opportunity to blame a statistically measured increase of race-based crime on Donald Trump. The Los Angeles Times and Newsweek took advantage to blame President Donald Trump’s "violent rhetoric" for "helping fuel the surge." Yet the uptick started in 2015.
We’ve often stated that immigration is the beating heart of Univision’s policy agenda, but the network has also taken to championing other liberal policy items. As its coverage of the Supreme Court’s ruling in NIFLA v. Becerra proves, abortion is at the top of that list.
In an interview on MSNBC's Live with Katy Tur on Wednesday, Los Angles Times immigration reporter Cindy Carcamo informed us that it indeed was a crime to enter the country illegally! Who would have thought?
We've come a long way from harmless playground jibes like “your mother wears combat boots,” to those of today from the likes of Samantha Bee and other leftist “entertainers” who say things about President Trump and his family that are so vulgar they can't be printed in a newspaper or quoted on television.
Following the rest of the press, New York Times reporter Julie Hirschfeld Davis falsely portrayed the president as attacking all “undocumented immigrants” (in the paper’s politically correct terminology) as “animals” when he was clearly only talking about criminal gangs, including the murderous MS-13. The story came out of a White House meeting between President Trump and California mayors and sheriffs who oppose the state’s policy of “sanctuary cities” to protect illegal immigrants: “Trump Rants on Unauthorized Migrants: ‘These Aren’t People, These Are Animals.”
