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.
In a search in the browser Google Chrome, 6 of the top 20 conservative sites had “reviewed claims” showcased in the summary. By contrast, none of the top 20 liberal sites had “reviewed claims.” Instead, three of them -- The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The New Yorker -- had “awards” displayed where “reviewed claims” would have been.
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’...”
Just when it seemed that the scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein couldn't get more sordid, current and former aides and advisors of Hillary Clinton have rushed to her defense after Anthony Bourdain, a famous chef and host of his own program on the Cable News Network, defended girlfriend Asia Argento, one of several women accusing the Hollywood mogul of sexual harassment, assault and even rape.
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.
Despite all the liberal preaching, Hollywood has no moral boundaries.
Harvey Weinstein, the man who pushed feminism and social justice and who has been a major donor and player in Democratic politics and liberal causes, has just been accused of rape by three women who were interviewed by the New Yorker. Ronan Farrow reported, “Three women told me that Weinstein raped them.” Farrow interviewed thirteen women total, who told stories of rape, assault, and inappropriate exposure and harassment, all committed by Weinstein over the past three decades.
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.
