Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders has at least one media champion for his Stop BEZOS Act. The bill, which is obviously targeting CEO Jeff Bezos of Amazon, would levy a 100 percent tax on companies in the amount their employees receive in federal benefits.
Even Rolling Stone is skeptical about the veracity of Tom Arnold and his claims about the Trump tapes that never seem to materialize. When even Rolling Stone thinks you are doing too many drugs that means you are probably named Tom Arnold. When not noting Arnold's drug intake, Rolling Stone writer Brian Hiatt in his August 12 profile expressed skepticism of his credibility, especially in regards to the Trump tapes that he is supposedly hunting down but which never seem to materialize.
In light of the recent accusations against Les Moonves, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver found it his duty to address workplace harassment and to help resurrect an old liberal hero. On his July 29 show, after giving his own thoughts about sexual harassment, Oliver turned to the person he said “kickstarted” the conversation about workplace harassment back in the 90s; this was none other than Anita Hill who accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment after he was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1991.
In a recent Rolling Stone interview, liberal billionaire Tom Steyer said perhaps a “nuclear war” would turn people against President Donald Trump, and “then we get a real course correction.” Contributing editor Tim Dickinson barely pushed back, simply saying, “Wow — that’s ... sobering.”
"Democracy Dies in Darkness" or, according to Rolling Stone writer Ana Marie Cox, Democracy Dies in Duluth. Yes, that is her premise as she paints a condescending picture of those attending the June 20 rally for President Donald Trump in Duluth, Minnesota.
Chris Matthews, obviously frustrated by the utter lack of any evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, tells an Adam Schiff staffer in private that he needs "something that leads to impeachment."
John Podesta's emails were leaked by Wikileaks which means they were really leaked by the Russian government. That's a fact? At least it is a "fact" being pushed by Rolling Stone and much of the rest of the mainstream media despite that fact that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has denied that Russia was the source.
Rolling Stone’s Tessa Stuart interviewed New York Times campaign reporter Amy Chozick about her new book on covering the Hillary Clinton campaign, and revealed Chozick to be amazingly forgiving of Clinton and quite uncaring about female victims of male predation – at least those whose stories could conceivably hurt Hillary’s chances. And she again apologized about her paper actually covering campaign news -- the leaked emails from the Clinton team.
It is remarkable to see the headlines about presidential aides Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump in the liberal media. The son-in-law and daughter of President Trump are now getting routinely hammered in The Washington Post, The New York Times, on CNN and even in The Wall Street Journal editorial pages, the latter decidedly not in the “liberal media” category. But what is particularly noticeable is the reluctance to apply the same standards to presidential or other political relatives - if they are liberals.
Like their counterparts at CNN and MSNBC, many news outlets were quick to promote anti-Trump protests in New York City on November 12, 2016 – and in doing so became unwitting promoters of Russian propaganda. An indictment handed down on February 16 by Special Counsel Robert Mueller revealed that this protest, as well as one in Charlotte, NC on November 19, 2016, was organized by Russian operatives.
Twitter's #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag, referring to the four-page memo which allegedly contains evidence of extensive "abuse in ... surveillance practices" at the FBI and Department of Justice, has gotten on Beltway Democrats' nerves. An attempt to pass off Americans' interest in having it released as a campaign led by Russian bots appears to have blown up in their faces, because two of their leaders believed a bogus report from the far-left media fever swamp.
If you have been on Twitter recently then you know the red hot hashtag that is #ReleaseTheMemo. So why the popularity? Well, according to Rolling Stone, it is due in large part to the Russians. Yes, the Russians Are Coming to Twitter in the form of their bots to hype that hashtag. The subtitle of Rolling Stone's silly article by Bob Moser explains it: "Republicans claim a secret document reveals a Hillary Clinton plot "worse than Watergate" – and they're getting a big boost from Russian bots."
