Fake News or FAKE Movie? Showtime’s ‘Comey Rule’ to Push Liberal Lies?

August 29th, 2020 12:50 PM

Is the con on … again?

One-sided Hollywood productions often pretend to be anything but that. When Miss Sloane, an overt call for stricter gun control, hit theaters the key players promised it offered fair and balanced storytelling. That wasn’t the case. So why twist the truth?

Despite Impeachment and Corona, MSNBC’s Ratings Are STAGNANT

April 2nd, 2020 10:46 AM
While the first three months of 2020 were overloaded with news -- ranging from the impeachment of President Trump to the arrival of the coronavirus outbreak -- the liberal MSNBC “news” channel failed to attract new viewers and matched the same ratings from a year ago.
