Donald Trump Jr.
Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) and Congressman Mike Gallagher (R-WI) signed a letter demanding that Twitter ban Chinese propaganda accounts. The two Republicans sent a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey demanding Twitter ban Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials and all foreign leaders who use Twitter while not allowing their citizens to do so. One egregious example was when Twitter allowed Spokesperson & Deputy Director General, Information Department, Foreign Ministry of China Lijian Zhao to point a finger at the U.S. and suggest, “It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan.”
An embarrassing clip of Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden stammering during a speech has been spun by liberal media as “manipulated media.” Former Vice President Biden was caught on video seemingly endorsing President Donald Trump for re-election. Liberal media outlets condemned the video as deceptively edited misinformation in order to cover for the Democratic primary frontrunner. Twitter followed up by labeling the video as “manipulated media.” When reached out to for comment, Twitter staff replied that “this Tweet was labeled based on our Synthetic and Manipulated Media policy.”
On MSNBC Live on Friday morning, anchor Hallie Jackson teed up a harsh and hyperbolic quote from Donald Trump Jr. to Rep. John Garamendi (D-Calif.), who suggested he would have a "serious altercation" with the president's son if he said that in his presence.
Just like their cable news peers at MSNBC did this morning, CNN went after certain Fox News personalities on Friday for daring to call out their politicized reporting on the coronavirus. CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin and media reporter Oliver Darcy raged at Fox, claiming they were putting the public in danger by sowing skepticism over their anti-Trump reporting on the coronavirus.
Leftists are delusional and they hate founding fathers. That was reiterated in this week's episode of Stephen Colbert's unwatchable Showtime cartoon, Our Cartoon President (Colbert is not original with titles). The first two episodes of this season jumped on the impeachment bandwagon and fantasized about the American economy crashing.
There was a lot of blame being thrown around Tuesday for Monday’s chaotic Democrat caucuses in Iowa, however, one common theme emerged on ABC: could it be because there’s too many white people? On Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos blasted the state as “unrepresentative, 92% white” to his Democrat progressive guests, and that theme continued on ABC later on The View. Hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar complained that Iowa’s whiteness was a problem for Democrats while Whoopi Goldberg brought up Stacey Abrams as an example of someone who was the victim of a racist election.
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.)
