“Hottest month in human history” has a certain ring to it. But some scientists say that ring isn’t true. The liberal media, always on the lookout for ways to demand action on climate change, latched on to a recent National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) report, claiming July 2019, was the “warmest on record for the globe.” The United Nations claimed the same thing on Aug. 1, which also generated media histrionics.
For Fast Company’s run-up to the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, the magazine's Charles Fishman dove into the contemporaneous coverage from July 1969, focusing on how the print media reporting on “liberal lion” Sen. Ted Kennedy driving off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island that killed his passenger was overshadowed by the moon landing the next day.
"The story" of Wimbledon so far has been 15-year-old Floridian Coco Gauff. Ranked 313th in the world, she is a wildcard entry who stunned her idol Venus Williams and also made an amazing comeback to defeat Polona Hercog. So who is Time magazine's Wimbledon coverage focusing on? Why, it's the history-making first lesbian couple playing together in the famed tournament!
Defending Joe Biden over his remarks about having worked with segregationist senators, Joe Scarborough says that Franklin Roosevelt did the same, and as a result, "FDR passed Social Security, passed the New Deal and he saved this country and saved poor people like my parents in the Deep South." In fact, the New Deal did nothing to "save the country." The Depression lingered after its adoption and it was only sometime after the beginning of WWII that the emerged from the Depression.
The press rose as one in outrage Wednesday upon learning that Fort Sill, an Army base in Oklahoma, which is being used as a temporary shelter for migrant children, had been used as a Japanese internment camp during World War II. One fact buried and downplayed: Fort Sill was also used to hold migrant children as recently in 2014, under the administration of one Barack Obama. But at the time, it seems that zero media outlets who covered the controversy made the connection between World War II internment and the Obama administration’s housing of migrant children.
The dinosaur publication Time magazine, which you may have forgotten still existed (or you only see at the dentist now), still pumps out liberal spin and reporting from a left-leaning perspective. The latest example of that trend is an article published in the Sunday, June 9 edition that focused on a small hotel in Michigan offering pregnant women free stays and no-cost transportation from states that have “severe restrictions” on abortion.
On Sunday, Time columnist and editor Ian Bremmer thought it would be clever to tweet an outrageous, and completely fake, “quote” from President Trump praising North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, to see what happened. The quote spread like wildfire on Twitter of course, and Bremmer achieved his goal of duping a lot of people on both sides of the aisle, before he was called out and deleted the tweets.
Actor Jeff Daniels is lecturing the racist pro-Trump "mob" is devaluing decency and honesty. It’s a little rich when the Hollywood Left itself as the guardian of decency and respect and honesty. They all lined up with Bill Clinton in 1998, and nobody in their company rewrote a literary classic to lecture him on ethics, honesty, and decency.
Hollywood’s hot new trend is to boycott the entire state of Georgia because Governor Brian Kemp signed a bill making it harder to kill unborn babies. Following her threatened boycott in March, one-time actress and full-time shrew Alyssa Milano had already convinced David Simon, creator of The Wire, to join the fad. Now there are few other big celebs getting in on the action.
The passage of abortion laws in Georgia and Alabama have caused a flurry of media reactions, including many misleading ones. At least 16 articles claimed or suggested women would be jailed for having abortions, even though the laws’ text is available for all to read, and specifies women will not face prosecution.
TIME magazine in recent months has published a series of puffball cover stories for Democrats from Nancy Pelosi to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Now it's time to celebrate Pete Buttigieg, next to the husband Chasten Buttigieg, with the words "First Family" on the cover. Doesn't it seem a bit early for that kind of hype? But the gay pride was overwhelming.
Over the weekend, President Trump held a rally in Wisconsin, where he criticized Democratic Governor Tony Evers for saying he’d veto a bill requiring doctors provide medical care to babies born alive from an abortion. The media predictably pounced.
