The left has been pressuring Big Tech companies to change their ad policies in preparation for the 2020 election. The Wall Street Journal reports that Google is considering following the footsteps of Twitter when it comes to changing its political ad policies.
In yet another example of the massive double standard between the way the “mainstream media” treats liberals and conservatives, Politico media reporter Michael Calderone greeted the resignation of disgraced Democrat congresswoman Katie Hill as an "epic dilemma" for the media. One media critic even warned of the oncoming "congressional selfie apocalypse."
Conservative Twitter bubbled over when Politico's Natasha Bertrand and Daniel Lippmann baldly contradicted the facts about Obama CIA director John Brennan's self-defensive lying -- as even Politico has reported.
On Monday, Politico Magazine thought the unthinkable (for liberals). What if (GASP!) President Donald Trump actually wins re-election next year? In order to present this dystopian (for liberals) future, Politico's senior White House reporter Darren Samuelsohn took us on a trip to the very near future in a time machine.
Politico Magazine published a story about a congresswoman struggling with impeachment with such laughable melodrama as to provide inadvertent comedy entertainment.
Liberals seem to be so desperate to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020 that they are now digging up Roy Cohn from the grave to slam him despite the fact that the famed attorney has been dead for 33 years. This latest effort in the form of a documentary called, "Where's My Roy Cohn?" prominently features Trump, a fact that was hyped over and over again by Politico senior staff writer Michael Kruse in the September 19 Politico Magazine.
Rachel Maddow touted another Trump scandal on September 6, that the Air Force was putting "taxpayer money directly into the president's pocket" by using Glasgow Prestwick Airport near his Turnberry resort in Scotland, according to Politico. But Byron York reported "The only problem with the Politico story was that it was not the whole story. In fact, it omitted so much important information that it hardly qualified as a story at all."
Big Tech is being summoned by the Federal Election Commission to answer what it is doing to stop digital misinformation before the 2020 elections. FEC Chairwoman Ellen Weintraub sent out personal invitations to the heads of Facebook, Google, and Twitter on August 30.
A new liberal 501(c)(4) “dark money” group linked to the liberal House Majority PAC intends to spend millions on TV and digital ads to help Democrats maintain control of the House of Representatives. Internal Revenue Service rules stipulate that 501(c)(4) organizations cannot make politicking the primary purpose, yet the new group plans to devote 94% of its 2019 budget to ads.
If New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger is looking for support from other media outlets for his complaint about embarrassing tweets by journalists for his newspaper being exposed, he can cross Politico off his list. Politico senior media writer Jack Shafer has no sympathy for that complaint as he made clear in his Monday Politico Magazine article, "Why Journalists’ Old Tweets Are Fair Game for Trump."
Liberal billionaire George Soros just wrote the “biggest check” of the 2020 election cycle so far to start his own super PAC. Federal Election Commission filings revealed Soros put $5.1 million into the new Democracy PAC, according to Politico. The July 31 article interpreted Soros’ move as an indication he “may be poised to spend heavily in the 2020 elections.”
Senator Elizabeth Warren, a leading presidential candidate, warned on Monday that the next financial crises is on its way. Surprisingly that dire prediction was mocked by Politico's chief economic correspondent, Ben White, the same day on CNBC's The Exchange. Only a few days ago before, White had been giving Warren some praise by saying that Wall Street wouldn't be too worried about her as president. This contrast makes White's change in tone even more noteworthy.
