We had Rasohomon the movie in which the same scene is presented several different ways depending on the point of view of the performers. And now we have the political version of Rashomon, in the form of the the Department of Justice Inspector General report, according to the CNN's overly imaginative Chris Cillizza, which was highly critical of former FBI Director James Comey. For Cillizza the facts clearly stated in the IG report really depends on the political viewpoint of whoever is reading it.
Yes, there are fires burning in the Amazon and that’s obviously a bad thing, but one Forbes columnist chided movie stars, politicians and the news media for spreading misinformation about them. Contributor Michael Shellenberger, who was once named an “Environmental Hero” by Time, exposed an abundance of inaccuracies stemming from the current hysteria over the fires in the Amazon — including the “bullshit” claim that it is the “lungs of the world.”
First, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow took a turn smearing Trump judicial pick Steven Menashi as some kind of white nationalist. Now CNN's Andrew "KFILE" Kaczynski and Em Steck are digging into Menashi's college-newspaper articles at Dartmouth to denounce him as -- gasp! -- a conservative!
“Hottest month in human history” has a certain ring to it. But some scientists say that ring isn’t true. The liberal media, always on the lookout for ways to demand action on climate change, latched on to a recent National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) report, claiming July 2019, was the “warmest on record for the globe.” The United Nations claimed the same thing on Aug. 1, which also generated media histrionics.
Even though some high-profile experts claim the U.S. is not headed for a recession right now, the liberal news media continued to promote economic pessimism during the summer of 2019.
Despite 3.7 percent (near record-low) unemployment, wage gains, confident consumers and growing economy, liberal journalists obsessed over recession every single day of June and July.
A draft of an executive order to be released by the White House found that at least 15,000 people had been affected by political censorship online. CNN reported that a summary of the draft stated that the White House “has received more than 15,000 anecdotal complaints of social media platforms censoring American political discourse.”
So as I sat in a television studio in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania ready to beam in on Thursday night’s Sean Hannity show, I checked my notes. The topic was to be the media and President Trump’s visit to El Paso. The format was, first, a Hannity monologue, then the segue to the opening El Paso segment, where I would be paired with Dr. Sebastian Gorka, the former Trump White House aide and now host of The Sebastian Gorka Show. In the world of cable news, completely normal.
AllSides, a media technology company that provides media bias ratings and balanced news across the political spectrum, conducted an audit of Google’s “Top Stories” section following the two mass shootings that occurred in Dayton, OH and El Paso, TX last weekend. The findings reveal a heavy preference for CNN and left-leaning media outlets overall, reinforcing previous audits completed by AllSides and researchers at Northwestern University.
Earlier this year, CNN irresponsibly gave positive coverage to an illegal immigrant hiding from ICE in a liberal sanctuary church in Colorado. One week ago, that same immigrant killed a father of five in a car accident, while driving without a license. As usual when these things happen, the only thing you can hear from CNN is crickets.
Apparently there’s no room for President Donald Trump in the safe space that comedian Leslie Jones lives in. The outspoken leftwing SNL star and stand up comic told late night host Jimmy Kimmel that Trump “is banned from my life.” Jones, one of the stars of the failure that was 2016’s all female Gostbusters reboot, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss her new Netflix stand up special.
On Thursday, a CNN article on “robot racism” took the internet by storm as critics challenged the claim. The article, co-authored by Caroline Klein and David Allan, dove into a study conducted by the Human Interface Technology Laboratory in New Zealand.
She’s a former stripper turned rapper. He’s the aging star of the 1988 classic Honeymoon in Moscow. They’re teaming up for the zaniest buddy-comedy/caper picture of the political season: Booty and the Borscht!
