When President Trump announced them in early January, many in the liberal media thought that the Fake News Awards were a bluff and he wouldn’t go through with them. But after having previously been postponed, Trump unveiled the “winners” Wednesday night. Out of the top 10 instances of fake news, CNN was sloppy enough to win four awards with the top spot going to The New York Times. The awards twice noted a Media Research Center study that showed 90 percent of the media’s coverage of him was negative.
Newsweek, circling the drain of journalistic credibility, has resorted to immature rehashes of liberal social media clickbait, to bizarrely accuse President Trump daughter Ivanka of sending a “dogwhistle” signal to racist movements. The headline suggests that the Trump family is responsible for the ideological content of flags on boats sailing near them while on vacation. “Oops! Ivanka Trump Vacation Photo Has Confederate Flag on Boat Behind Jared Kushner."
Merry Christmas, Nazi! Newsweek keeps topping itself with discreditable anti-Trump “news” stories, the latest the holiday-themed “How Trump and the Nazis Stole Christmas To Promote White Nationalism” by Cristina Maza, filed on Christmas Eve. That headline kind of says it all, but if you want the full lunacy, keep reading:
The every-more radical Newsweek’s blame-Trump-for-everything philosophy reached a nadir Monday afternoon, with the headline “Because of Trump, People Are Burning Israeli Flags and Attacking Jews.” Sadly, Jews have been attacked in Europe long before Donald Trump arrived on the political scene. A more accurate headline would read: “Because They Hate Jews, Radical Muslims Are Burning Israeli Flags and Attacking Jews.”
Just when the “sign Kaepernick” media cheerleaders appeared to be quieting down, Philadelphia’s star quarterback, Carson Wentz, suffers a serious knee injury Sunday and now obectivity-challenged media cheerleaders have renewed their tiresome call for a Kaepernick signing. Among the media shilling for Kaepernick is Newsweek’s Tim Marcin, who writes, “A number of folks had a suggestion for who could step in (for the Eagles): Colin Kaepernick.”
Liberal reporters are scandalized by what they say is President Trump’s effort to “discredit” and “undermine” special counsel Robert Mueller, worried that it could presage an attempt to “remove Mueller, or end his investigation.” But when President Bill Clinton was being investigated by Ken Starr, journalists applauded Democratic and White House attacks on the independent counsel, and frequently joined in themselves.
At what little is left of Newsweek, reporter John Haltiwanger published a story on the unfortunate deaths of several pets in Vice President Mike Pence's family during the past two years. In doing so, he followed what has apparently become a rule in the establishment press during the Trump administration — "There shall be no puff pieces" — and put on a virtual clinic on how to maximize bias, distortion, and disinformation.
During the past week, most people who follow center-right news outlets and blogs became familiar with the name of Charles McCullough III. McCullough, the former Intel Community General Inspector who identified 22 "beyond classified" emails present on Hillary Clinton's home-brew server years after she had left her position as Obama administration Secretary of State, has appeared on several Fox shows revealing that he was harassed and threatened for reporting that finding to his superiors, and that he was promised that he would be fired once Mrs. Clinton won the 2016 general election (oops). Very few establishment press outlets have done anything with the story in the past six days, and the rare exceptions have used McCullough's revelations as a platform to take shots at President Donald Trump.
If he's smart with his time and his millions, ingrate Colin Kaepernick will never have to work or worry about money again. Rather than express gratitude yesterday for all he's been given, Kaepernick chose to attend the UnThanksgiving Day protest on Alcatraz Island to do what he does best: insult America.
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.).
Never miss a chance to smear conservatives, even if that means somehow connecting the right to the murderous cult leader Charles Manson. That’s apparently the view of the New York Times and Newsweek. Both liberal outlets used Manson’s death to attack political enemies.
On Friday, the Treasury Department reported that the federal government took in a record $3.315 trillion in revenue during the just-completed 2017 fiscal year. None of the broadcast networks bothered to mention the Treasury on any of their Friday evening or weekend broadcasts. Yet even as revenues have grown at an average of 14 percent annually since 1980, liberal journalists have spent that entire time trumpeting the need for even higher taxes.
