AP Finally, But Disgracefully, ‘Covers’ O’Keefe’s ‘Rigged’ Videos — Just Before Debate

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 19:48:22 +0000

At NewsBusters late Wednesday afternoon, Tim Graham observed that many news outlets, including the Associated Press and most of the nation’s major newspapers, had not yet covered “the Project Veritas videos exposing Democratic operatives talking about voter fraud and inciting violence at Donald Trump rallies.” Graham’s explanation: The non-coverage “marginalizes these charges enough that if [...]

AP: Fiscal 2016 Deficit, 34 Percent Higher Than Last Year, Is ‘Totally Manageable’

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 20:02:29 +0000

The federal government’s fiscal year ended on September 30. As has been the administration’s habit for years with news that might draw negative attention, the Treasury Department conveniently released its year-end Monthly Budget Review Friday afternoon to minimize the discussion of its grim news. The government ran a $587 billion deficit, up from $414 billion [...]

What WaPo Giveth Hillary Nationally, It Taketh Away in Key States (UPDATE: IBD Has Trump Up, Rasmussen Tied)

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 17:59:47 +0000

As noted earlier this week, Washington Post/ABC polling shows Hillary Clinton with a 4-point, 47-43 lead over Donald Trump — readings identical to mid-July. Well now, imagine this: Post/Survey Monkey polling shows Trump up in nearly enough battleground states won by Hillary Clinton to win the election if Mrs. Clinton fails to turn any red [...]

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 16:29:34 +0000

Today’s installment of Stupid Fact Checks again goes after Politifact, this time on two items in one “fact check.” First, the web site’s Louis Jacobson claims that Michelle Obama couldn’t possibly have been talking about the Clintons on August 12, 2007 when she told an audience about the importance of a First Family serving as [...]

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 02:18:45 +0000

Please watch and share widely. UPDATE: The two key figures in the first two videos have been fired (Scott Foval) and resigned (Robert Creamer). Creamer, who is the husband of Chicago-area Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, has visited the White House 345 times since President Obama took office. 45 of those visits were to “POTUS” himself. Imagine [...]

Stupid Fact Check: Politifact Claims NRA Is ‘Mostly False’ Directly Quoting Hillary on Gun Confiscation

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 18:30:37 +0000

The latest installment of Stupid Fact Checks involves Politifact, the heavyweight champion of dishonest “fact checkers.” The web site’s clear mission is to make false leftist claims look credible while discrediting valid statements made by those on the center-right. Early Monday morning, the web site criticized a flyer issued by the National Rifle Association which [...]

For the third quarter as a whole, industrial production rose at an annual rate of 1.8 percent for its first quarterly increase since the third quarter of 2015. Manufacturing output [...]

Howler From CNN’s Cuomo: It’s ‘Illegal’ For Anyone But the Press to ‘Possess’ WikiLeaks Documents

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 02:01:53 +0000

CNN’s Chris Cuomo, who laughably insisted a month ago that Hillary Clinton “did not do anything illegal” in connection with her use of a private server for State Department emailing and other business, is at it again. To be clear, she did lots of things that are illegal, but a corrupt FBI and Department of [...]
