Lost amidst all the mainstream media furor over what President Trump said about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, when he said it, and who he condemned is any real analysis on their part about why that violence occurred in the first place. Specifically why were the state and local police ordered to stand down, allowing the white nationalists and Antifa groups to clash.
Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe claimed that the state police were ordered to stand down because of stashed weapons caches around Charlottesville and because militiamen on the scene were better armed than the police. An investigation (something the MSM has failed to do) by Reason magazine reveals that not only were these flat out falsehoods but that the New York Times actually edited out some McAuliffe quotes on this after initially publishing them.
Over the weekend, The New York Times claimed in an article that Vice President Mike Pence was running a “shadow campaign for 2020,” which brought a scathing rebuke from Pence and President Trump. But despite the denials from the White House, on Monday, ABC’s World News Tonight ran an entire segment about the idea, laying out the evidence and only briefly mentioning the Vice President’s reaction. And they were the only network evening newscast in the Big Three (ABC, CBS, and NBC) to give the non-story any significant time.
With Don Lemon taking some vacation, CNN Tonight has featured New Day co-host Chris Cuomo, so Wednesday’s show went as well as you’d expect with liberal propaganda, a full defense of Jim Acosta after being thrashed by Stephen Miller, and unchallenged fake news by April Ryan.
Liberal celebrities love to hide behind what makes them look good. Especially if it’s fake news.
As of July 31, the author of the Harry Potter series J.K. Rowling is still accusing Trump of ignoring a disabled child and calling the POTUS “stunning and horrible.”
The NRA has been firing back at false accusations made by the Washington Post including one that claimed the gun-rights advocate had illegal ties to Russia (Fake News). In a video released last week, Grant Stinchfield at NRA-TV suggested that the disgraced publication's motto should be, "Journalism Dies at the Washington Post," instead of, "Journalism Dies in Darkness." He called out the violence of the left and the lies told by the media.
In the wake of President Trump’s interview with The New York Times, where he hammered his Attorney General and pressed on the Russia investigation, MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber demonstrated that NBC can’t get its story straight. “And with regard to [Special Counsel] Mueller … just to be clear, neither the new FBI director nor the president has any ability to remove the special counsel,” Melber told colleague Katy Tur during Thursday’s MTP Daily. But just over a month earlier, their colleagues were freaking out about just that.
In Thursday’s edition of liberal hypocrisy, long-time liberal news anchor and deceptive video editor Katie Couric bemoaned to the New York Daily News that fake news is currently “tearing” the U.S. “apart at the seams” with “quite educated” friends falling for fake stories while assigning no blame to the liberal media establishment she’s been a part of for decades.
As all the major news networks this week have highlighted the tragic case of Minnesota bride-to-be Justine Damond being shot to death by a police officer, far-left News One Now host Roland Martin -- who sometimes appears on MSNBC -- has conspicuously given no attention to the story even while continuing to update viewers on high-profile cases of blacks being killed by the police.
When the big networks realized that President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin had a second discussion in Germany, they went nuts. The coverage made it seem like a dark and sinister deal was struck in a hidden alley. In reality, the President went over to talk to Putin at a G-20 dinner in front of every major world leader and enough media to make your head spin. Despite this fact, the media portrayed the "meeting," if you can call it that, as "secret" and "undisclosed."
Remember the mighty Coffee Party which at one time had grown to a total of 200,000 members? Oh, you wonder where that laughably inflated figure comes from? Well, it was made up by Steve Tuttle of Newsweek (now with fewer readers than the real members of the Coffee Party). The purpose of that very obvious fake news was to hype a leftwing version of the Tea Party back in 2010 despite the fact that it numbered in the dozens at most.
On Sunday, Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for President Trump, appeared on ABC’s This Week to discuss the latest developments in the Russia story, particularly those involving the President’s son and son-in-law. Towards the end of the interview, Jon Karl pressed Sekulow about the concerns of presidential pardons, citing the worries of Senate Democrat Mark Warner. But no matter how many times Sekulow explained that he didn’t know the President’s position on the question, Karl kept insisting he was saying Trump was seriously thinking about it.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell unveiled the revised version of the GOP health care bill on Thursday, which added provisions meant to entice both the conservative and left-leaning members of the Republican Party. And despite the fact that the Congressional Budget Office had yet to release their report on the revisions, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) wasted no time in tearing it down with the usual fake news of massive cuts to Medicaid.
