Like their counterparts at CNN and MSNBC, many news outlets were quick to promote anti-Trump protests in New York City on November 12, 2016 – and in doing so became unwitting promoters of Russian propaganda. An indictment handed down on February 16 by Special Counsel Robert Mueller revealed that this protest, as well as one in Charlotte, NC on November 19, 2016, was organized by Russian operatives.
In the immediate aftermath of Wednesday’s school shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school, the liberal media sprinted to push gun control while vigorously waving a ridiculous school shooting statistic put out by the anti-gun lobbyist group, Everytown for Gun Safety. According to their numbers, there had been 18 school shootings since the start of 2018. The only problem? It was bogus. So much so, even the liberal Washington Post found the need to call out them and the rest of the media.
Following Tuesday’s Senate Intelligence hearing, Kurt Bardella appeared on MSNBC’s Live With Craig Melvin, where he repeated a now-debunked Democratic talking point about the Nunes memo controversy.
In these days of woke Hollywood, even famous people dare not outdo women. If they do, they receive the wrath of 1,000 think pieces about how poorly women are treated in Tinseltown. Yep, Hollywood is racist and sexist and discriminates against conservatives. The media are upset by two of those. I bet you can guess which ones. But Wahlberg (nee Marky Mark) is being reviled because he did something smart. And because he’s conservative.
Google’s new fact-checker is just as bias as you would expect. On Tuesday, The Daily Caller reported that the feature, for the most part, only targets conservative sites. For example, both The Daily Caller and Daily Wire are fact checked (and mostly incorrectly as the two sites point out), but Vox, HuffPost, ThinkProgress, Slate, Salon, Mother Jones, and Daily Kos are not.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's The Beat with Ari Melber, Huffington Post global editorial director Howard Fineman -- also an MSNBC contributor -- went negative on Republicans planning to cut taxes as he described them as "getting drunk on egg nog," and claimed that cutting taxes "periodically gets them into trouble." He went on to suggest that the internet deregulation plan would amount to "an all-out war on" the middle class voters who elected Donald Trump.
A person assumes a fake ethnic identity in order to advance their career. If you guessed this person to be Elizabeth Warren who passed herself off as an Indian in order to be hired as a minority on the Harvard faculty you would be right. However, you would also be right if you guessed the person to be the new Marvel comics editor-in-chief, C.B. Cebulski, who years ago pretended to be Japanese in order to advance his career every bit as much as Warren did.
Do pigs fly? Shockingly, the extremely liberal Huffington Post on Sunday actually published a story involving Republican senate nominee Judge Roy Moore of Alabama that sounded almost positive...or at least not overtly hostile. The reason seems to be that the author, Hamilton Gregory, is a Vietnam veteran and his emphasis was on the practice of fragging during that war. Moore comes into the story mainly because he was under a fragging threat due to his insistence of enforcing discipline upon his troops, many of whom were drug abusers.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation published its annual hate crime statistics earlier this week. The press has dutifully fallen into line with the predictable narrative that the 5 percent reported in hate crimes in 2016 occurred because of Donald Trump's presidential campaign. The numbers tell a different story.
Former Vice-President Joe Biden is currently being hailed in much of the mainstream media and on friendly interview shows as the Great Democrat Hope for the 2020 presidential election. However, in stark contrast to the current paeans to Biden, the liberal HuffPost has tossed cold water on this idea. Amanda Terkel has written in the November 15 HuffPost that the idea of Biden running for president is really quite horrible due to his very creepy treatment of women.
The gun-control crowd quickly ratcheted down its political opportunism in the wake of Sunday's Sutherland Springs, Texas church massacre once it became known that a "good guy with a gun" put a stop to Devin Kelley's killing spree, saving dozens of lives. At RedState on Wednesday, Carl Arbogast noted that what remained was a double standard in press descriptions of the respective weapons used by Kelley and Stephen Willeford, the man who stopped him.
In addition to CNN, liberal activists, actors, journalists, and trolls disturbingly berated and maligned the character of John Kelly following his Thursday Whtie House remarks, declaring him to be an “odious” “coward” and “nitwit” offering a “bizarre,” “dishonest,” and racist statement amidst the Gold Star family controversy.
