In the immediate aftermath of Wednesday’s school shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school, the liberal media sprinted to push gun control while vigorously waving a ridiculous school shooting statistic put out by the anti-gun lobbyist group, Everytown for Gun Safety. According to their numbers, there had been 18 school shootings since the start of 2018. The only problem? It was bogus. So much so, even the liberal Washington Post found the need to call out them and the rest of the media.
In a sit-down interview with Axios on Ash Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence told investigative journalist Mike Allen that he was upset to hear about The View’s callous remarks about his faith on their show earlier this week.
The 2018 Winter Olympics were in full swing and Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and head of their Propaganda and Agitation Department, had bizarrely become a liberal media darling. Despite the fact her job entailed censorship and glorifying public executions, numerous outlets had touted her for “stealing the show,” winning “diplomatic gold,” being the “Ivanka Trump of North Korea,” and hyping the extremely creepy North Korean cheerleading corp.
In a disgustingly gushy puff piece published Saturday on CNN.com, reporters Joe Sterling, Sheena McKenzie, and Brian Todd put Kim Yo-jong, the sister of murderous dictator Kim Jong-un, on the gold medalist tier for her appearance at the Winter Olympics in South Korea. “If ‘diplomatic dance’ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un's younger sister would be favored to win gold,” the three declared in the first sentence of the article, which headlined the website for a time.
With the liberal media joining Democrats in the ongoing battle to save DACA and for no border wall, CBS and NBC ignored the killing of Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson at the hands of a drunk-driving illegal immigrant during their popular morning and evening shows Monday. Instead, CBS Evening News hyped Space X launching a Tesla Roadster into space and NBC Nightly News whined about how cold the WINTER Olympics were going to be.
The Intercept's Peter Maass hyped on Saturday that the war film 12 Strong is just latest example of "problematic" Hollywood productions that "model a cliched form of masculinity that veers from simplistic to monstrous." Maass, a former journalist for the New York Times, lobbied the movie industry to "turn away from war movies that...perpetuate a model of masculinity that does violence to us all." He later asserted that many of the successful military-centric films were "masculine nonsense."
There is probably no better indicator that facts and the truth really don't matter to today's journalists than the fawning coverage disgraced former news anchor Dan Rather receives whenever he makes a post-CBS career move. CNN's story on Rather's latest foray into online broadcasting typifies the kid-glove treatment he has received since he was relieved of his anchor duties at CBS almost 13 years ago.
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.
Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Seal bucked the trend of celebrities protecting themselves over the sexual assault cases rampant in Hollywood, particularly against disgraced bigwig producer Harvey Weinstein.
Google’s new fact-checker is just as bias as you would expect. On Tuesday, The Daily Caller reported that the feature, for the most part, only targets conservative sites. For example, both The Daily Caller and Daily Wire are fact checked (and mostly incorrectly as the two sites point out), but Vox, HuffPost, ThinkProgress, Slate, Salon, Mother Jones, and Daily Kos are not.
In June, the school hired Chassity Holliman-Douglas as its first Vice President and Vice Provost for Equity and Inclusion in response to the student uprising. PBS NewsHour interviewed her in an article published on Sunday titled “‘These conversations are not comfortable’ — How colleges can address racial inequality.” Authors Corinne Legal and Ivette Feliciano wanted to know “how predominantly white institutions can work to support all students and what Evergreen is doing nearly a year after the events.”
Chants of “Death to Rouhani” and “We don’t want an Islamic republic” echoed through the streets of Iran on Saturday, marking the third day of fierce anti-government protests sweeping the country. President Trump weighed in, tweeting: “Many reports of peaceful protests by Iranian citizens fed up with regime’s corruption & its squandering of the nation’s wealth to fund terrorism abroad.” Despite their history of hyperventilating over every tweet the President sends, the three major network news outlets have largely ignored the protests. Meanwhile, CNN downplayed it with Iranian propaganda.
