Throughout the 2016 election, journalists were technically correct and yet unrelenting in their criticism of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump’s reliance on the accuracy of entirely insignificant and unscientific surveys that reflected well on his candidacy and debate performances. On September 27, for instance, CNN posted a “fact-check” article, arguing that Trump “[misled] people by citing unscientific, unrepresentative Internet polls” in the wake of the first presidential debate in the general election. The Washington Post similarly argued that “the online polls are, again, garbage,” and impugned Trump for mentioning them in his speeches.
Thirstier than an ultra-marathoner lost in Death Valley in mid-July. Hyping the entertainment magazine's latest cover, Co-Editor-in-Chief Claudia Eller gushed this week, "How cool does Chelsea Clinton look on our Power of Women, NY, cover?" Welcome to the liberal media's manufacturing of "cool." Leather jacket? Check. Overzealous airbrushing? Check. Humanizing grin? Check. Democratic establishment pedigree? Checkity-check-check.
Former George W. Bush White House press secretary Ari Fleischer gave a great interview to The Hill’s Joe Concha posted Sunday in which he slammed the liberal media for their bias “particularly on social issues” and proving daily how they’re too disconnected from their audiences. On media bias itself, Fleischer said “there’s no question about it” as the media have “an inherent bias toward conflict.”
When is the best time to get something written by liberals resembling the truth about a liberal politician? The answer is after, and only after, that liberal politician has lost the final campaign of his or her career. Such is the case with authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes who in 2014 wrote a mushy book about Hillary Clinton called HRC. Of course, back then Hillary was looked upon as the heir apparent for the Democrat nomination in 2016 which resulted in a book chock full of cheerleading for the anointed one.
This was in sharp contrast to their new book due out on April 18, Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign, which finally reveals much of the truth about Hillary's character previously hidden by their waving pom-poms in their 2014 book.
Folks, you can’t make this up. Typo of the year? I think so! In a Tuesday story about a Jewish Republican Congressman responding to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s comments about Adolf Hitler and chemical weapons, The Hill’s Cristina Marcos referred to Spicer as Hitler (yes, you read that right).
Some people sure can hold a grudge. One of those is Rosie O'Donnell, a former co-host on ABC's The View weekday program who's been in a feud with Donald Trump ever since they began sparring more than a decade ago.
In the latest clash between the liberal comedian and the current occupant of the White House, O'Donnell will take part in a “Resistance Address” slated to take place in Washington's Lafayette Park on Tuesday just hours before Trump gives his first address to the members of Congress.
In a press release published on Tuesday, Humana, one of the United States’ largest health insurers, announced that it will be withdrawing from all Obamacare exchanges come 2018. According to The Hill, “The insurer said it would offer plans through 2017, but that the market has not stabilized enough to participate next year. Humana said it was losing money from taking on too many sick people without enough healthy people to balance the pools.” This is the latest blow to the disastrous health care law and the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) completely ignored it.
Appearing on Sunday’s edition of Fox News’s MediaBuzz, The Hill’s Joe Concha ripped into CNN’s Jim Acosta as “entitled” and “obnoxious” when he tussled on Wednesday with President-elect Trump by “grandstanding” and yelling over a dozen times at Trump.
Conservative media critics (and even some considered to be neutral) lashed out on Wednesday at BuzzFeed’s recklessly unsubstantiated report about President-elect Donald Trump as they lashed out at BuzzFeed, calling their decision a “ridiculous” one that “violated journalistic ethics.”
Major networks have downplayed Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server, but WikiLeaks revealed how one journalist told her to take it seriously and respond like Kennedy did to the Bay of Pigs disaster. According to Wikileaks, The Hill columnist Brent Budowsky sent an email to Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta in August 2015 suggesting Clinton should respond to the email scandal the same way John F. Kennedy responded to the failed Bay of Pigs invasion. In the same email, he clarified that “publically” he has continued “defending [Clinton] with no-holds barred.”
