The blog contains a list of organizations and news outlets who have repeated the now-defunct line about "deceptive edits" in light of the recent ruling against Planned Parenthood by the U.S. 5th Circuit Court. It's anybody's guess as to how many of them will issue udates or corrections.
If there’s one thing liberal media love, it’s the idea of raising taxes on the rich. It’s something they have in common with freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. As a self-identifying Democratic-Socialist, Ocasio-Cortez has plenty of expensive ideas for the government, including a Green New Deal she suggested paying for with much higher taxes on the wealthiest.
As Facebook finds itself in the midst of another controversy, coming under fire from the left this time, it turns out a coalition attacking Facebook includes a prominent press union.
Facebook is in the midst of what Vox called a “liberal apology tour” after hiring an opposition research firm which sought to shed light on connections and funding of the Freedom From Facebook (FFF) coalition and liberal billionaire George Soros. The group’s goal is to pressure the Federal Trade Commission into breaking up Facebook and forcing it to spin off assets like Messenger and Instagram to reduce the company’s power.
Johnny Harris of Vox reported on the enormous numbers of refugees who have fled from Venezuela and crossed the border to live in Colombia. Since Venezuela has the largest proven oil reserves in the world, one might wonder how it came to be an economic basket case where inflation is so high that the paper currency needed to buy a roll of toilet paper would actually be more useful to use in the desired function than the product it is supposed to purchase. Harris reports on the what but never on the why of the Venezuelan refugee crises
In a string of disturbing tweets Thursday afternoon, Vox Senior Correspondent and co-founder Matthew Yglesias actually justified a mob of left-wing Antifa activists surrounding the home of Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson and terrorizing his family. Even as other journalists and pundits across the political spectrum condemned the incident, Yglesisas insisted that he “cannot empathize” with Carlson or his family.
What do you think the top priority of Congress would be if the Democrats win control of the House in November? The answer is something upon which both the left and the right would agree: Impeachment. And yet the official Democrat position is pretend that impeachment is not on their minds 24/7 because they know such an admission could hurt them with the voters. Therefore most of the Congressional Democrats are currently going thru the laughable pretense that the I-word is not their top priority although a number of their members such as Maxine Waters are uncomfortably truthful about their intentions.
Remember folks, Vox gonna Vox. Moments after Arizona Republican Senator John McCain’s death on Saturday night, Vox.com sent out a since-deleted tweet that “[y]ou can draw a straight line from John McCain to Donald Trump — through Sarah Palin” that accompanied a piece by politics editor Laura McGann which, in the original version, couldn’t correctly identify the origin of Palin’s “lipstick” comment.
It's quite simple: Some political relatives are more equal than others. Agenda-driven journalists love to exploit familial dysfunction when a prominent politician is conservative and his or her kinfolk espouse liberal views. When a vengeful offspring, sibling, cousin or distant relation wants to wreak havoc, instant fame and adoration are just a tweet or call away. The media schadenfreude over such bloody bloodline battles is thicker than California wildfire smoke.
Earlier this week, our friends at CRTV channel found a unique way to cover the midterm contests by creating a satirical video made (using clips from a real, PBS interview) to appear like conservative personality Allie Stuckey had interviewed well-known socialist Democratic House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Just how laughably pathetic do the leftwing Democrats who loudly introduced a bill to abolish ICE appear after they now have to backtrack in embarrassment to oppose it since Republicans agreed to bring it to the floor of the House for a vote? So pathetic that even the leftist Vox is mocking the Democrats for putting themselves in such a bind as to look completely foolish.
Is it too much to ask that Hollywood types know what they’re talking about before the express their opinions?
On CNN's Reliable Sources on Sunday, Vox.com's Ezra Klein lamented the attention President Donald Trump continues to receive, whining that his rallies and tweets are crowding out "other important issues." Klein wants the establishment press and cable news — by that, he clearly means everyone but Fox — to pay less attention to Trump, even though he effectively admitted that doing so would cause hits to ratings and online traffic (Earth to Ezra: You're in charge of a business). Fox, which is already crushing its rivals, would probably love it if the rest of the press were to follow Klein's suggestion.
