The Women’s March movement has received fawning and forgiving establishment press attention, particularly from the Associated Press and New York Times, since its first official event the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

New ‘Breaking’ Obsession: Trump’s Health

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 13:20:44 +0000

Pausing briefly from the press’s never-ending Trump-Russia obsession, both Politico Magazine and USA Today decided earlier this week to focus on the state of President Donald Trump’s health. Nothing tangible appears to have prompted either report. USA Today absurdly issued a “breaking news” alert on the topic. The driving force behind issuing “breaking news” alerts [...]

Despite June ‘Clarification,’ AP’s False ‘All 17 Agencies’ Trump-Russia Claim Remains Ubiquitous

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 02:28:24 +0000

On June 30, the Associated Press issued a “Clarification” acknowledging that stories published on April 6, June 2, June 26 and June 29 had incorrectly “reported that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump.” One has to wonder why the AP even bothered.

AP’s Crutsinger Ignores All-Time Record Monthly Spending in Covering June Deficit

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 00:22:07 +0000

Records are supposed to be newsworthy, right? But in his Thursday coverage of the federal government’s June Monthly Treasury statement, Associated Press reporter Martin Crutsinger only told readers that the deficit for the month was $90 billion. He did not disclose receipts or outlays. Why? Because if he had, he would have had to tell [...]
