WashPost’s Wemple Defends Sneaky Tactics of AP, Freelancer at NH GOP Event

Thu, 25 May 2017 20:16:20 +0000

On Tuesday, Randy Hall at NewsBusters covered how “the Associated Press hired a ‘freelancer’ — who turned out to be ‘a hardcore left-wing activist’ — to attend a ‘closed press’ fund-raiser for the GOP in New Hampshire.” In other words, the wire service sent Melanie Plenda to the event for the express purpose of crashing [...]

Thu, 25 May 2017 02:45:05 +0000

From Los Angeles: May 23, 2017 / 05:46 am To a pitcher, a little situation like bases loaded, full count and trying to protect a one-run lead in the late innings is no big deal — not if you’ve been doing this since you were 8 years old. And not if, like St. Bonaventure High [...]



Clueless Press Doubts That America Is ‘Ready For Interracial Love’ on ‘The Bachelorette’

Wed, 24 May 2017 22:43:29 +0000

At NBC and Newsweek, it’s still the late-1960s. The movie Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?, with its then-edgy portrayal of an engaged interracial couple visiting the white fiancee’s parents, has recently debuted. Apparently the ink hasn’t yet dried on the Supreme Court’s Loving vs. Virginia decision, which nullified all remaining interracial marriage bans. What else [...]



AP Sneaks Leftist Hack Into NH GOP Event, With Predictable Results

Wed, 24 May 2017 12:33:05 +0000

As if we needed it, given their reporters’ conduct during the past two years, here’s more evidence that the Associated Press is now a full-fledged participant in the anti-Trump, anti-conservative, anti-Republican Party “resistance.” A virulently anti-Trump freelance reporter doing work for the AP, which is a supposed to be a wire service finding and reporting [...]

Reporters Falsely Claim Ivanka Trump Will Control World Bank Entrepreneurs Fund

Mon, 22 May 2017 23:31:25 +0000

When it comes to “news” which might discredit Donald Trump or a member of his family, the modus operandi for too many in the press is, “Tweet and report first, ask questions later (if at all).” On Sunday, several media members couldn’t resist falsely tweeting that Ivanka Trump will somehow control $100 million pledged by [...]



One of the the Best Treatments of ‘The Russians Did It’ Fiasco …

Mon, 22 May 2017 20:36:27 +0000

… is at the left-wing site Counterpunch (HT Doug Ross). To me, that’s not a surprise. Recall that in 2010, Counterpunch published a piece by Ron Wilkins, a professor at Cal State University. Wilkins, possibly at great personal and professional risk, in “The Other Side of Shirley Sherrod,” exposed Sherrod and her husband, the supposedly [...]

From Variety.com: Elton John: MTV Era Produced Many Untalented Musicians I would start naming them, but I don’t have all week. Oh, but their videos were (supposedly) cool. Blech. And these untalented musicians produced a lot of mediocre music — which explains why so many people who weren’t even born then like the music of [...]

CNN’s Berman Picks Wrong Data From Harvard Media Study to Falsely Taint Fox

Mon, 22 May 2017 04:03:03 +0000

Thursday morning, Harvard Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy issued a report which confirmed what the Media Research Center, the parent of NewsBusters, reported in April, namely that President Donald Trump “has received unsparing coverage for most weeks of his presidency, without a single major topic where Trump’s coverage, on balance, was more positive [...]
