Not surprisingly, the major broadcast network newscasts were out to lunch between Sunday morning and Monday morning about not one but three new stories detailing what the Minneapolis Star Tribune stated as “[n]ew investigative documents” that provide “fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.”
While YouTube has been panicking over one offended LGBT reporter, the platform’s overreaction has both sides outraged. YouTube announced a crackdown on Wednesday June 5 on videos promoting or glorifying racism and discrimination. However, in what appears to be the haphazard actions of a hastily deployed algorithm, even videos critiquing “hate speech” and conspiracy theories have been taken down or demonetized.
On Tuesday night, Politico Magazine senior writer Michael Grunwald seemed to have inadvertently auditioned for a role on former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign by offering a hilarious defense in light of news first reported by our friend Peter Hasson at the Daily Caller News Foundation that Biden’s environmental proposal “used nearly identical language from other sources in at least five different passages.”
Social media companies appear to be tossing away their copies of SPLC’s bogus “hate map.” It took a while, but Facebook finally responded to the April 3 call from MRC president Brent Bozell and numerous other conservative leaders for the platform to cut ties with the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Facebook is subtly trying to discredit conservative media as “conspiracy theories” and it’s using Wikipedia to do it. The company’s latest policy update, “Expanding Our Fact-Checking Program,” included new details on how the platform planned to combat “misinformation.”

Henry Rogers of The Daily Caller recently tried to ask New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, a Democrat, about the Green New Deal. Menendez responded by saying he wouldn’t answer questions from The Daily Caller and told Rogers “you’re trash” before threatening to “race to the Capitol Police” if Rogers refused to stop “harassing him.” On The Ingraham Angle Thursday, guest host Tammy Bruce highlighted the media silence on this matter and contrasted it with their outrage when President Trump declares the media “the enemy of the people.”
Who knew that sharing a public fact about a liberal politician could count as bullying? GOP spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany tweeted on February 6 that she had been blocked from her Instagram account.
