If The Washington Post made a New Year’s resolution to cut down on the political hackery, get back to a sensible regimen of responsible sourcing, and maybe lose a few pounds of pomposity, it’s already been broken in spectacular fashion. A January 7 piece from Sarah Pulliam Bailey involves Donald Trump Jr., social media, religion, and firearms -- what could go wrong?



A political reporter for the liberal Newsweek magazine has been dismissed after producing an inaccurate article regarding President Trump’s activities on Thanksgiving Day, claiming that the GOP occupant of the White House intended to spend the holiday just “tweeting and golfing.” The item was posted before the President traveled to Afghanistan to visit the U.S. soldiers stationed there, and it was a serious blow to Jessica Kwong, whose Twitter screen name identifies her as covering the “Trump administration and family,” as well as the 2020 presidential contest.



The New York Times is officially “triggered” by Donald Trump Jr.’s book of the same title somehow hitting #1 on the paper’s own best-seller list: “R.N.C. Spent Nearly $100,000 on Copies of Donald Trump Jr.’s Book." After years of controversy, the Times finally recognized problems with its best-seller lists -- but only when a book by Donald Trump Jr. claims the top spot. Alter and Confessore skip over the black-box nature of how the paper itself rigs its best-seller lists, which conservatives suspect with good reason to be stacked against conservative books and in favor of liberal ones.



In this era of civility, Google’s search algorithms are doing their part in keeping the peace. Google Images, the section of Google Search where users can look for images, suggests images with any phrase or word typed in the box. With the query, “punchable face,” several images crop up immediately.



Twitter appears to be doing all it can to protect those participating in the impeachment inquiry from public criticism. Liberal news outlet BuzzFeed noted that the phrase “I hired Donald Trump to fire people like Yovanovitch” was trending on the morning of Nov. 15.



If ratings are any indicator of Americans’ interest in impeachment, Democrats are in big trouble. Viewership for yesterday’s impeachment hearings are out, and reveal that between the three major broadcast networks, ABC led ratings, with just 2 million total viewers (Fox News was the most viewed network, with 2.9 million watching.)



Donald Trump Jr. warned of the large liberal influence that Big Tech companies such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have on elections in an exclusive interview with Media Research Center president and founder, L. Brent Bozell. 

 



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.



Yahoo Entertainment reports that Donald Trump Jr discussed his feisty Thursday appearance on ABC’s The View over the weekend, saying it was “about time” someone got the better of the show’s hosts. He also told radio host John Catsimatidis that he was disappointed that his book didn’t come up in the conversation. Instead, they "were trying to smear me." He said "I don’t think it’s too much to ask to expect them to actually talk about the book once. To actually ask me a question about the book, just once.”



There’s no question guests Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle completely “triggered” the hosts of The View Thursday, as the president’s son was there, ironically to promote his book of the same title. The food fight continued for nearly thirty minutes, finally culminating with Trump shocking hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg by calling out their own controversies.



Well this was definitely a show for the record books. Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle sat down at the “hot topics” table on The View Thursday for an explosive discussion. Despite the hosts’ hostile and abusive behavior towards their guests, Trump and Guilfoyle were still able to land some good points about the media’s bias towards President Trump. Trump even called out the View’s network, ABC, for its part in covering up Jeffrey Epstein’s connection to Bill Clinton, during the 2016 election.



Just when you think things can’t get any more ridiculous on The View, the hosts spend a segment complaining about the President’s son’s Halloween costume as being insensitive to animals, on Friday’s show. The co-hosts also complained about a 2020 television ad put out by the President, which Joy Behar declared was full of paid actors “just like the ones who go to his rallies.”
