Those who linger at the The New Yorker magazine's website eventually see a splash advertising its dedication to "fighting fake stories with real ones." Staff writer John Cassidy's ridiculous assertion that "George Soros Upstaged Donald Trump at Davos" shows that this is clearly false advertising.
On Tuesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, fill-in host Mark Steyn and The Hill’s Joe Concha enjoyed themselves at the expense of the latest liberal media diatribes, showcasing new cases of the incurably stupid Trump Derangement Syndrome involving everything from the death of Charles Manson to the attack on Republican Senator Rand Paul (Ky.).
At The New Yorker on Tuesday, Jeffrey Frank reached what one hopes is the worst we'll see of Trump Derangement Syndrome — but don't get your hopes up. Frank, in attempting to analyze what might have caused registered Democrat Rene Boucher to attack Senator Rand Paul two weeks ago, blamed "the sinister banality of American life ... with a lot of it these days emanating from Donald J. Trump."
Three NewsBusters posts on Thursday documented attacks by far-leftists and members of the media on Trump administration Chief of Staff and retired General John Kelly's reaction that afternoon to Florida Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson's accusation that President Donald Trump, during a private phone call to the widow of fallen soldier La David Johnson, "disrespected" him.
On her MSNBC show on Thursday, host Andrea Mitchell sounded the alarm for her left-wing audience as she warned: “Well, President Trump, of course, is making headlines every day, every hour, but Vice President Mike Pence largely flying under the radar....Joining me now is staff writer of The New Yorker, Jane Mayer, who wrote the story, ‘The Danger of President Pence’...”
Amidst the NBC News controversy of declining to support contributor Ronan Farrow’s bombshell story on Harvey Weinstein, NBC’s Today co-host Matt Lauer praised Farrow on Wednesday for working on it at NBC but failing to disclose the network’s refusal to publish it (hence why it went to The New Yorker).
Variety and The Huffington Post are reporting that NBC News passed on Ronan Farrow’s investigation into Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s sexual exploitation of women. NBC declined to comment on the record as to why it would let this scoop slip away. Unnamed sources said the story Farrow brought to NBC was underbaked. On Tuesday night's The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC, Farrow objected to that spin.
DONALD TRUMP!!! ...Sloooowly I turned...step by step.....
Poor Bill McKibben. The former New Yorker staff writer couldn't get Donald Trump out of his mind so, in order to keep from going out of his mind, McKibben took a trip to the Alaskan wilderness. Gates of the Arctic National Park. However, even on the 8.4 million acres of the park with no roads, ranger stations, nor even trails, he still couldn't purge his mind of you-know-who. McKibben recounts his gallant but failed effort in I Went All the Way to the Alaskan Wilderness to Escape Donald Trump which begins with him waxing poetically about the beauty of nature in remote Alaska.
When Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, some Americans thought the Electoral College rigged the presidency for Trump, and that hatred persists to this day. Once Trump became President, Syria’s latest chemical weapons attacked transpired and though most Americans supported that decision to bomb Syria, the radical left did not. In Hollywood, the level of post-election bitterness has only grown. Therefore, the entertainment elite has purposefully created content insulting millions of thanks to their severe cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Once a woman-hating blowhard, always a woman-hating blowhard. Keith Olbermann, the "new" face of the Democratic resistance on Conde Nast's digital video platform, is the same old foul-mouthed beast he was on cable TV. Over the weekend, the former MSNBC frother went berserk over Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos's anodyne call for prayers "for all those in the path of #HurricaneHarvey" and her promise to "assist impacted schools."
Support mental health or I'll kill you! New Yorker magazine seems to have this deep psychological need for President Donald Trump to be officially called crazy by psychiatrists. That need is so urgent that their August 23 article by Jeannie Suk Gersen on this subject almost exactly echoes their May 22 story by Jane Mayer on the same topic.
Ordinarily, when someone gets their life together, congratulations or encouragement of some kind is in order. Amanda Petrusich of the New Yorker seems to think otherwise. In her article published last week, "Miley Cyrus's Creepy Return To Wholesomeness," Petrusich analyzed Cyrus’s new song, “Malibu,” which is, in her opinion, “equal parts bohemian and smarmy.”
Petrusich did not approve of Cyrus’s new direction, mainly because she found that the superstar’s decisions in the past were those of a “creative risk-taker” which made her a “figure to root for.”
