The liberal crowdsourced information platform Wikipedia, which received $2 million from liberal billionaire George Soros, is launching a social media site to rival Facebook and Twitter. The site’s founder, Jimmy Wales, said in a tweet that WT:Social is a response to the “fake news and low quality content” that can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
On Monday, CNN spent nine minutes and 49 seconds reveling in Donald Trump Jr. being heckled by a rabid, shouting crew from the alt-right and fans of Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes during a Turning Point USA event promoting his book Triggered. Therefore, CNN have spent nine minutes and 49 seconds more on people protesting Trump Jr. than calling out ABC for their decision to spike reporting about predator Jeffrey Epstein.
Thursday night, Washington Examiner’s Rob Crilly, Steven Nelson, and David Drucker reported that alleged CIA whistleblower at the center of the congressional inquiry seeking to impeach and remove President Donald Trump “had a ‘professional’ tie” to “Joe Biden, according to intelligence officers and former White House officials.” But on the Friday morning and evening flagship broadcast network newscasts, this update was ignored.
President Donald Trump described Big Tech censorship as one of the “new challenges to liberty” and declared that “a free society cannot allow social media giants to silence the voices of the people.” President Trump blasted social media during his speech at the UN, and covered its problems ranging from blacklisting to censorship.
The 2020 presidential election is still more than a year away, but that hasn’t kept ratings-starved CNN from announcing that, for some reason, they will hold yet another town hall marathon, set for mid-October in Los Angeles to focusing on what CNN Tonight host Don Lemon said would be "on issues that are important to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community."
In the world of hacks like Jeremy Peters and Brian Stelter, only journalists should be able to ruin someone’s life over past statements or offensive lines that were either harmless or sarcastic. Unfortunately, that happened Tuesday as Bloomberg’s Ben Penn forced Labor Department official Leif Olson to resign after just 18 days because, according to Penn, had “a history of advancing controversial conservative and faith-based causes in court” and writing “a 2016 Facebook post suggesting the Jewish-controlled media ‘protects their own
A new poll from Rasmussen Reports reveals most Americans believe that journalists are more liberal than they are, and deserve scrutiny, despite the fervent objections from The New York Times. There’s even more bad news for the liberal media: the majority also agreed President Trump’s attacks on the press were “appropriate.”
The New York Times, pushing hard for migrants, is still slamming the now-rescinded family separation policy at the Southern border. Now it’s found a new liberal immigrant heroine: El Paso Democrat Rep. Veronica Escobar. Reporter Emily Cochrane was all gushing in Friday’s edition: “‘People Listen to Her’: House’s Voice of Fervor, And Reason, on Border.” The next day, Cochrane covered the actual congressional hearing on family separation, focusing on another liberal heroine, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose grandstanding met with hypocritical approval.
Not surprisingly, the major broadcast network newscasts were out to lunch between Sunday morning and Monday morning about not one but three new stories detailing what the Minneapolis Star Tribune stated as “[n]ew investigative documents” that provide “fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.”
Talk about an awful, no good, very bad day for CNN’s Reliable Sources host and walking Twitter ratio Brian Stelter. On Tuesday, Stelter peddled the arguments in favor of Jussie Smollett during two CNN shows, suggested Smollett will now go down as “the victim” in all this. And to make matters worse, Stelter took to Twitter and got ratioed into orbit by suggesting those still critical of Smollett should watch themselves because none of us were actually there that night in Chicago when whatever happened took place.
Wow, 370 pages of closed-door testimony from an FBI lawyer who alleges the Obama Justice Department told the FBI not to charge Secretary Hillary Clinton for “gross negligence?” The Democrat-controlled House shutting down the committee charged with investigating possible bias at the DOJ and FBI? Those things sound irresistibly tantalizing for reporters but for the Big Three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC), it drew only yawns.
Just days after announcing that he was forming an exploratory committee to run against President Trump in the Republican primary, longshot Presidential candidate Bill Weld appears to have at least one passionate supporter in the media: ABC’s Matthew Dowd. Even after his fellow panelists on This Week made compelling arguments explaining why Weld’s candidacy will ultimately not go anywhere, Dowd still described Weld's primary challenge to the President as a “really smart political move” and maintained that Weld “would get 18, 19, 20, 22 percent of the vote” and force President Trump into debates.
