Many liberals in the mainstream media dismiss the concept of “fake news” as just a term conservatives use when they hear information they don’t like or don’t agree with. However, a new Pew Research Center survey demonstrated that people across the country find that situation to be much more common and more serious than is otherwise reported. Released Wednesday, Pew researchers stated that many Americans “say the creation and spread of made-up news and information is causing significant harm to the nation and needs to be stopped.”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson weighed in Tuesday night on his Fox News Channel show about The Daily Beast’s doxing of an African-American Trump supporter who allegedly created last week’s doctored video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slowed down to make it look like she was slurring her words. Along with the entire premise of doxxing a private individual being way off base, Carlson also called out the media’s outrage over the edited video.
The liberal media lost their minds recently after a slowed down video falsely claiming to show Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) drunk and slurring her words went viral. Then, in what their editor-in-chief called a “right on the money” response, The Daily Beast hunted down the creator of the video and exposed his identity. It’s a seedy tactic CNN themselves have used against Trump supporters and private citizens in the past, so it’s no wonder Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter promoted it.
Both DC and Marvel are hellbent on a new diversity initiative, looking to capture the hearts of a “global” audience. Maybe the comic book giants figure they’ve wrung as much money as they can from the straight, mostly white heros of DC’s Arrow and Marvel’s Avengers. A lesbian “Batwoman” is on the way from DC, and Marvel has confirmed that soon we will get our first gay crimefighter.
A $1.25 trillion giveaway program to college grads and future college students deserves scrutiny, not praise as a “bold,” “sweeping” or “ambitious” plan that could “distinguish” Sen. Elizabeth Warren from her Democratic competitors.
Some news stories, including CBS and NBC online, bordered on being a sales pitch for the plan to forgive student loans and make public colleges tuition-free. CBS boosted Warren’s claims that forgiving student loan debts for millions of Americans “could supercharge the economy,” (even though liberal economists have contradicted that claim in the past). It even asked “What’s not to like?” and only cited one Twitter’s complaint it would be unfair to people who didn’t go to college.
While many in the Democratic Party were fine defending anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), on Wednesday we learned there were some that reject her and her money. According to reports and campaign finance filings, at least two congressional Democrats had either rejected contributions from Omar or refunded her the money. This bucking of the party’s normalization of anti-Semitism sadly went unreported during the evening news programs of ABC, CBS, and NBC.
How do millionaire entrepreneurs feel about the government taking more of their money?
Yahoo Finance editor-in-chief Andy Serwer found out when he invited one of them on his Influencers show April 12. He asked entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuck (also called Gary Vee) about “politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who says [sic] we should have more government involvement in terms of people making higher wages.” For him, the matter had less to do with how much of his hard-earned money is given away, and more to do with how it would be spent.
Hollywood and the media always love a pro-abortion storyline on TV and liberals seemed to particularly enjoy a horrifically profane rant against pro-life sidewalk counselors outside an abortion facility on Sunday night. Veep, an HBO comedy starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus in it’s seventh and final season, had campaign staffer Amy Brookheimer (Anna Chlumsky) abort Dan Egan’s (Reid Scott) baby on the April 14 episode, titled “Pledge.”
Teen Vogue columnist Isabella Gomez Sarmiento continues the magazine’s outrageous abortion propaganda in her April 9 article titled “Georgia's Fetal-Heartbeat Abortion Ban Is an Example of Shame Perpetuated Through Legislation” -- because shaming people is the worst thing you could possibly do, far worse than stopping a tiny human heartbeat. The author rails against Georgia House Bill 481, which prohibits abortion after a preborn baby’s heartbeat can be detected at about 6 weeks, while counseling teens that abortion is "completely normal."
Apparently, the folks at NBC News are gluttons for punishment. During Monday’s edition of NBC Nightly News, the news organization boosted claims made by lawyer and proven huckster, Michael Avenatti that shoe giant Nike was bribing high school athletes to go to schools with Nike deals. NBC treated the claims as serious while downplaying the federal extortion charges against Avenatti for allegedly trying to shakedown Nike for over $20 million.
Another airport has just banned Chick-Fil-A from setting up shop on account of the fast food chain’s financial ties with Christian groups. Buffalo, New York’s regional airport just followed a San Antonio airport’s lead in being delusional enough to trust the judgment of crazy lefty outlet ThinkProgress and banned Chick-Fil-A on account of their supposed anti-LGBTQ discrimination.
Apparently last night’s Oscars weren’t woke enough for some devout lefties. Despite jokes at the expense of Donald Trump, several mentions of the plight of immigrants, and of course some race-baiting from director Spike Lee, Daily Beast writer Kevin Fallon claimed that the show “made the case for its own irrelevancy.”
