MRCTV's Brittany M. Hughes reported Monday that Kehinde Wiley, Barack Obama's official portrait artist, previously created two paintings of black women holding white women's severed heads, making him the art world's equivalent of Donald Trump severed-head comedienne Kathy Griffin. Additionally, Wiley, described in New York Magazine as "possibly the wealthiest painter of his generation," outsources much of "his" painting to China to "cut costs." Establishment press coverage has virtually ignored these components of Wiley's background, but their descriptions of Obama's involvement in selecting him reveal his almost certain awareness of the artist's full portfolio.
Every two years, Americans unite around the television to root for U.S. athletes and their dreams of gold medals come true. Unless you’re a journalist. Then the Olympics are a time to root against your country and her president on the world stage. At the opening ceremonies in South Korea, organizers strangely seated Vice President Mike Pence just a few feet from Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korea’s communist dictator. To American reporters who hate Trump, a star was born. Just the summaries on Twitter were enough to make you throw your phone across the room.
The propagandists disguised as "fact-checkers" at the Washington Post unleashed pent-up frustration Wednesday when they evaluated President Donald Trump's February 5 claim that wages are, "for the first time in many years, rising." They gave Trump's claim its worst possible evaluation of "Four Pinocchios," i.e., a "whopper." Too bad for the Post that detailed work published by Reuters two days earlier had already debunked its evaluation.
If you thought that the liberal media’s horrid behavior swooning over the murderous North Korean regime and Kim Yo-jong at the Winter Olympics was just a weekend affair, you’re sadly mistaken. On Monday morning, Reuters published a pro-Kim piece that took until paragraph 16 to offer a concrete counterpoint that this distracted from their country’s human rights abuses.
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.
As Venezuela plunges deeper into humanitarian crisis, the broadcast and cable networks barely recognize its existence, while the print press, which during relatively tolerable times routinely celebrated the country's socialist government, is more reluctant than ever to use the S-word. Of six articles I found Friday afternoon about the horrid, deteriorating situation in that country, only one used the word — and that was only because it was about snap elections de facto dictator Nicolas Maduro has called for April.
On Tuesday, President Trump tweeted he would be “announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR” on Monday “in various categories from the Fake News Media." There’s bias, but then there’s sheer incompetence. The biggest media obsession last year was the search for evidence of Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia, in the process, liberal reporters in 2017 repeatedly stumbled into error and were forced to make embarrassing corrections. This post presented eight possible choices that the President could consider.
A San Francisco jury found Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, aka Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, aka several other undisclosed aliases, not guilty in the death of Kate Steinle on Thursday. Two leading wire services, CNN, the Washington Post, and the New York Times kept Steinle's name out of their tweets, and all but two kept it out of their stories' headlines.
The Left is incessantly freaking about all sorts of things - about which very little freaking is actually necessary. The Media is - by-and-large - the Left’s megaphone. About whatever the Left is freaking - you’ll find the Media freaking. Only louder, with many, MANY more outlets with which to amplify the freaking. The advent of the Internet - has exponentially increased the number of outlets through which the Media can freak.
The establishment press is making a big deal out of the fact that President Trump has not been and will not be personally invited to a climate summit in Paris in December. Both the media and the folks running the summit, where the utterly unoriginal theme is "Make Our Planet Great Again," should be thanking the U.S. for its outsized contribution — but to be clear, unnecessary, given that the link between "global warming" and CO2 increases has not been definitively established — to carbon dioxide reduction.
Well, it's a good thing we have experienced journalists in charge of presenting the news at sites like the Daily Beast making sure they protect the privacy of politicians under attack, particularly Republican and conservative politicians. ... Oh, wait a minute. Sam Stein, who became that site's political editor after many years at the Huffington Post, published Rand Paul's home address on Monday.
On Monday’s daily White House briefing, journalists went into overdrive pushing for Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders to talk about gun control and what President Trump was planning on doing policy-wise with respect to Sunday night’s mass shooting in Las Vegas.
