Following the murder of 20 people by a racist terrorist in El Paso, Texas, the liberal media cherry-picked portions of his alleged manifesto to connect him to the right. But some ignored portions that cited The Lorax as an inspiration for his views — a book and movie the liberal media used to love to promote because of its environmental agenda.
Google is the world’s No. 1 search engine and it can reveal important information even when it’s not being used. That was the case with the huge Google Camp Summit on climate change that went from being a way to lecture on global warming to a reminder how hypocritical liberals can be about the issue.
Some media outlets pounced on economic growth in the second quarter because it was slower than the first quarter, but a MarketWatch columnist called it a “head fake” and not an indication of a “slump.” Columnist Rex Nutting wrote, “Contrary to what you may read elsewhere, the U.S. economy did not slump in the second quarter of the year.” Growth was a “soft” 2.1 percent after a first quarter rate of 3.1 percent, but in his view not as bad as some represented it to be.
Left-wing group Bend the Arc: Jewish Action went on a Twitter rampage over Sen. Lindsey Graham’s, (R-SC), criticism of a group of freshman legislators as anti-Semitic. Bend the Arc is the result of a merger of The Progressive Jewish Alliance and Jewish Funds for Justice which joined forces in 2011. It was founded and funded by George Soros’ son Alexander Soros.
The New York Times demonstrated its loathing for conservative social media activists, while skipping over some of its own inconvenient blind spots. The headline over reporter Kevin Roose's pre-meeting table-setter, “Trump Woos Social Media Influencers,” belied the story’s hostility, but the online headline accurately captured the tone: “Trump Rolls Out the Red Carpet for Right-Wing Social Media Trolls.” Yet the Times itself is no stranger to sucking up to hoaxters or spreading falsehoods about Republicans
Jesse Pournaras is a pro-abortion doula (or birth companion) who takes “my body, my choice” to the extreme. Writing in Bustle on July 10, Pournaras objects to doctors and nurses telling her clients in the delivery room, “Your baby is our first priority — your plans come second. We will do whatever it takes to get this baby born healthy.”
Liberal billionaire and former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg just gained two new Instagram fans: Britain’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
One of the biggest Democratic donors announced he’ll join the already-crowded field for president to “take democracy back from corporations and special interests.” Oh, the hypocrisy. California billionaire Tom Steyer spent millions as his very own special interest, trying to install liberals who would battle climate change, and then trying to secure a Democratic majority to impeach President Donald Trump. And he’s often had the media’s help to do it.
There is nothing more ironic than liberals celebrating liberal billionaires. In this case, The Hollywood Reporter has named Univision owners and liberal mega-donors Haim and Cheryl Saban as their Philanthropists of the Year. According to The Hollywood Reporter’s special feature in Billboard’s recent June 29 issue, “On July 10, Cheryl and Haim Saban will be honored as THR’s most generous power couple, their philanthropy priorities enrich Los Angeles’ cultural and civic vitality, promote healthcare access and research, strengthen the US-Israel relationship, and empower women and girls.”
The GOP has rolled out WinRed, a digital fundraising platform counterpart to the Democratic online GoFundMe ActBlue in an attempt to attract low-dollar digital donors. Will it work? Lefty media sources aren’t sure. NPR, in collaboration with the George Soros-funded Center for Public Integrity, questioned the latest Republican attempt to match ActBlue’s behemoth capabilities. “Republicans have repeatedly tried and failed to harness online political contributions as effectively as Democrats have with the ActBlue fundraising platform, which has been around since 2004,” NPR said.
When liberal donor George Soros and several other liberal billionaires called for a wealth tax, the media swooned. Soros, Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, heiress Abigail Disney and 15 others wrote an open letter calling on presidential candidates to adopt a wealth tax on the top 1/10 of 1 percent.
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.”
