The case against social media platforms and their consistent censorship of conservative content is growing rapidly. In a new op-ed by Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son slammed Facebook, Instagram, and Google for their latest mistakes in removing and downranking posts made by the right.
Not long after publishing a wacky pro-abortion op-ed comparing the pro-life movement to anti-vaxxers, the Hill recently published this gem by Julie Burkhart of Trust Women Foundation, “Anti-choice movement is like reproductive coercion, but on a broader scale.”
In what world are vaccines comparable to abortions? Vaccines save lives, prevent horrible diseases and are recommended for everyone, while abortions take lives, cause horrible pain and are supposed to not be wanted by anyone. Only to an extreme, pro-abortion movement steeped in the racist eugenics history of Planned Parenthood and its founder Margaret Sanger are abortions like vaccines, inoculating society from the scourge of the spread of more poor and minority babies being born.
Our friend Joe Concha with The Hill was in rare form on Friday’s Fox & Friends, ripping everyone from Chuck Todd for not fact-checking Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) about the Green New Deal to late night comics for their refusal to lampoon her to the double standard regarding the scandals rocking the three state-wide Democrats in Virginia.
The blog contains a list of organizations and news outlets who have repeated the now-defunct line about "deceptive edits" in light of the recent ruling against Planned Parenthood by the U.S. 5th Circuit Court. It's anybody's guess as to how many of them will issue udates or corrections.
When a conservative outlet or personality says something offensive, the media will rush to report the incident (often divorced from context or slyly edited.) Another conservative outrage against decency. When a liberal does it, you don’t often hear about the episode until there’s a “conservative backlash” to report.
Finding someone in Washington who is nonpartisan and puts the nation’s interests ahead of their own is so rare these days that he or she, if found, might well qualify as an endangered species. But once in a while — call it the law of averages — someone speaks the truth. It happened last week when Mark Penn, former adviser to Bill and Hillary Clinton, wrote a column for The Hill newspaper in which he claimed there is a big difference between how Hillary Clinton and President Trump have been treated when it comes to allegations of criminal behavior.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews threw a fit Wednesday night in defense of the liberal media, gushing over a reporter delaying his questions in the White House Press Briefing to give NBC’s Hallie Jackson more time and accusing the White House of running “Kremlin-style” communications office. Matthews misidentified also but clearly took a shot at Fox News's John Roberts for insufficient standing up for CNN’s Jim Acosta during a July 13 press conference in England.
An obviously agenda-driven report on extreme poverty from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights accuses the U.S. under the Trump administration of, in the UN group's words, "becoming a champion of inequality." It also claims that, because of its policies, "the American dream is rapidly becoming the American illusion." As one might expect, many the press have eagerly relayed the UN group's Trump-blaming findings, even though the statistics undergirding the UN group's efforts predate Donald Trump's inauguration.
In an interview posted on Wednesday, Hollywood Director Rob Reiner criticized Robert De Niro's profane, F-bomb Tony Awards speech aimed at President Donald Trump because such antics end up "helping Trump." (He didn't mention that the crowd's gleeful applause and Hollywood elitists' support on social media for De Niro's rant contributed mightily to "helping Trump.") On Howard Kurtz's Sunday Media Buzz show, Reiner demonstrated his obvious belief that any other direct or indirect criticism of Trump, no matter how unhinged or utterly divorced from reality — a long as it contains no profanity — is just fine.
The press has dishonestly smeared President Donald Trump since he described criminal illegal immigrants who are members of MS-13 and other gangs as "animals" at Wednesday's White House California Sanctuary State Roundtable. But on Thursday, the Associated Press deleted and replaced a tweet which falsely claimed that Trump's remark referred to all illegal immigrants. Even though both the deletion and replacement tweets are laden with predictable excuse-making and weasel words, AP's deletion effectively burns everyone else in the press and on the left who has been or still is making this false claim.
The National Rifle Association responded to YouTube’s announcement that it will ban more gun-related videos by accusing the site of “political posturing and censorship.” In a statement reported by The Hill, a YouTube spokesperson announced that starting next month, the site will broaden its ban on gun-related content. The new rules will prohibit videos that show how to assemble firearms and videos that advertise websites where users can purchase guns and gun accessories.
