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.
Even those who work at Google have noticed the search engine’s unfair tilt towards liberal news outlets. Google engineer Greg Coppola, who was suspended by his company for speaking to Project Veritas, published a July 25 post on Medium analyzing Google News. Coppola re-enacted a project done by PJ Media’s Paula Boylard in order to demonstrate Google’s liberal manipulation of its algorithms
There was just no way around avoiding the fact that Robert Mueller turned in a rather lackluster performance at the Congressional hearings on Wednesday. His appearances before Congress, upon which many Democrats pinned their hopes for harming or even impeaching President Trump, turned out to be something of a dud.
This was the conclusion of Politico's Senior White House Reporter, Darren Samuelsohn. More importantly, it was also an opinion shared by even many on the left that he cited such as David Axelrod.
That is the only possible explanation for Politico putting this headline on one of their articles on Saturday: "How Trump Turned Liberal Comedians Conservative." When the reader sees that there is almost no way they can resist finding out how liberal comedians became conservative due to Trump which was the premise of the title on the story by Joanna Weiss. If they expect to find some astounding revelation about how this is even possible they will be sorely disappointed and a bit more than a little upset at Weiss for the very misleading premise.
On Tuesday night, Politico Magazine senior writer Michael Grunwald seemed to have inadvertently auditioned for a role on former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign by offering a hilarious defense in light of news first reported by our friend Peter Hasson at the Daily Caller News Foundation that Biden’s environmental proposal “used nearly identical language from other sources in at least five different passages.”
If Joe Biden is so far above his primary opponents in the polls then why is the turnout of his campaign crowds so small? That is the question that Politico tried to answer on Tuesday primarily by relaying lame excuses provided by Team Biden.
We no longer live in a constitutional republic. We live in an idiocracy. Only in modern-day America, under the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, is the basic proposition that federally subsidized public housing should benefit American citizens and legal residents slammed as “despicable” and “damaging.” Those are the hysterical words used by Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney of New York City to condemn the proposal discussed by Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson on Tuesday to ban government aid to residents of HUD who shelter illegal immigrants.
In case you're curious about the mysterious rise of South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg in the Democrat presidential polls recently, Politico has revealed it was not so much because of grassroots support but much more due to an incredibly intensive campaign for media attention. The person behind this media hype campaign appears to be one Lis Smith, a well-connected hyperactive Democrat operative with a lot of political experience.
