    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Hey, it worked for that other racist over in Virginia. – Virginia’s baby-killing racist governor Ralph Northam appears to have shown the way for leftwing nitwits caught doing bad things all over the nation, and Jussie Smollett’s been paying attention. Basically, Gov. Blackface’s strategy has been to lie, deny and go about his business, a strategy copied by his Lt. Governor and Attorney General, all of whom have survived the media firestorm, such as it was, surrounding their bad acts, and continue to govern the once-great Commonwealth. Actors, even bad ones, are...

    NewsGuard, the browser plug-in that purports to separate real news from fake news and which, unlike most plug-ins, is included in Microsoft’s mobile Edge browser by default only requiring user activation, rated the exact same story about mainstream media journalist Lara Logan encouraging people to read news outlets from across the spectrum as fake on Breitbart News, but reliable on other websites. During a podcast interview, Logan claimed the media was “mostly liberal.” “The media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just the U.S.,” she proclaimed, adding, “Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense —...

    New York Post ^ | 2/21/2019 | Andrea Peyser
    The twisted case of Jussie Smollett is depressing, infuriating — and should end with the maximum prison sentence. But I predict he’ll skate. The reprehensible alleged actions of the gay, black fabulist who cried “MAGA” will be forgiven, excused and ultimately encouraged by sympathetic progressives — deemed justifiable Trumpicide. And it will happen again. And again. Smollett, who claimed he was attacked outdoors by a pair of racist, homophobic white Trumpsters on a frigid Jan. 29 in Chicago, transformed Wednesday from the purported target of a vicious hate crime to a lying, alleged felonious hoaxster. But the fact that the...

    Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Jussie, we hardly knew ye. – And just like that, Jussie Smollett’s obvious hoax, which was promoted by the entirety of your fake news media and a raft of craven Democrat politicians for two solid weeks because it fit their anti-Trump narrative, came to a crashing end. In case you missed it, news came down last night that Chicago Police had charged the neurotic actor with felony disorderly conduct and filing a false report. And thus, yet another media-promoted hoax – which was an obvious hoax from its first fake...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Man, no one could have seen this coming. Oh, wait…. – Way back in September, the Campaign Update informed its loyal readers (thanks to all of you) that the signs were obvious that Gestapo Chief…er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller was systematically going about the process of wrapping things up. We speculated at the time that it would likely take several months for Mueller to complete the process, given that he he likely still had more ham sandwich indictments to pursue, was still at the time hoping to personally interview President Donald Trump,...

    TMZ ^ | February 20, 2019
    Jussie Smollett is now officially in the crosshairs of law enforcement, because Chicago PD said he's now "officially classified as a suspect in a criminal investigation ... for filing a false police report." The cops say detectives are currently presenting evidence to a Cook County Grand Jury. If Smollett is charged the felony carries a maximum 3-year prison sentence. We're told the 2 brothers are at the courthouse now and are expected to testify ... most probably today.

    Out Magazine ^ | Frebruary 19, 2019 | Mathew Rodriqguez
    The Trump administration is set to launch a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality in dozens of nations where anti-gay laws are still on the books, NBC News reported Monday. While on its surface, the move looks like an atypically benevolent decision by the Trump administration, the details of the campaign belie a different story. Rather than actually being about helping queer people around the world, the campaign looks more like another instance of the right using queer people as a pawn to amass power and enact its own agenda. It almost goes without saying but the Trump administration does not...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Which “indigenous” people would those be, Senator? – Kirsten Gillibrand, who actually is running for president in 2020 even though pretty much no one but the fawning press appears to be aware of it, agreed with a leftist activist yesterday that a border wall is “absurd” because it “cuts off so many indigenous people.” Which “indigenous” people would those be, I wonder? It certainly wouldn’t be the tens of thousands of mostly-male, military-age “asylum seekers” from Central and South America who now form the great preponderance of those illegally crossing our border...

    We all know what news is. But do you what’s never news? When someone in the news, tells you the truth about the news. Lara Logan, who was a foreign correspondent for CBS News until leaving last year, was interviewed for a podcast by author and former Navy SEAL Mike Ritland. "And the media everywhere is mostly liberal,” Logan said. “But in this country, 85 percent of journalists are registered Democrats. So that’s just a fact, right?”

    former CBS Newser and 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan claimed that mainstream news media outlets are “mostly liberal,” and that right-wing outlets, like Breitbart are a good way to learn information from “the other side.” After the conservative podcast host characterized U.S. news media as “absurdly left-leaning” and supportive of Democrats, Logan described the U.S. and international news media as “mostly liberal,” adding, “most” journalists are “left.” “The media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just the U.S.,” assessed Logan.

At a campaign event in New Hampshire, the not-ready-for-prime-time presidential candidate was asked an actual question by a non-CNN reporter who wasn’t interested in helping her try on clothes, and mass stammering and dissembling ensued: Embedded video Tim Young ✔ @TimRunsHisMouth AWKWARD: Kamala Harris on her Jussie Smollett 'modern day lynching' tweet... a.k.a.

    Breitbart News ^ | 18 Feb 2019 | Robert Kraychik
    Lara Logan, foreign correspondent for CBS’s 60 Minutes, said Breitbart News offers “the other side” of news media relative to what she described as a mostly left-wing and partisan Democrat news landscape in the U.S. and abroad. She offered her remarks in an interview published last Friday with the Mike Drop podcast, hosted by retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland.Ritland characterized U.S. news media as “absurdly left-leaning” and supportive of Democrats, further describing the status quo of American news media’s left-wing and partisan Democrat biases as a “huge f__ing problem” and “disaster for this country.”Logan concurred, “I agree with that. That’s...

    Mediaite ^ | February 17, 2019 | John Ziegler
    Last night, the dam of media protection for Empire actor Jussie Smollett finally broke, as major news outlets suddenly decided it was safe to report that police strongly believe, backed by evidence, that his story of being a victim of a Trump-motivated hate crime is false. While his high-priced lawyers are still desperately playing the victim card, it appears that Smollett paid the two Nigerian brothers who “attacked” him (and whom he clearly knows) in a conspiracy to create a hoax. This is a fraud in which the mainstream news media might as well have been an unindicted co-conspirator. They,...

    New York Times ^ | February 18, 2019 | Sheryl Gay Stolberg
    In the 116th Congress, if you’re a Democrat, you’re either a socialist, a baby killer or an anti-Semite. That, at least, is what Republicans want voters to think, as they seek to demonize Democrats well in advance of the 2020 elections by painting them as left-wing crazies who will destroy the American economy, murder newborn babies and turn a blind eye to bigotry against Jews. The unusually aggressive assault, which Republican officials and strategists outlined in interviews last week, is meant to strangle the new Democratic majority in its infancy. It was set in motion this month by President Trump,...

Here’s the photo of the “white supremacists”: Oh. Turns out these are two brothers from Nigeria who are now confirming to police what some of us...

Here’s 12 establishment media commentators and journalists who fueled the Jussie Smollett flames with impassioned and uncritical reactions to the Empire actor’s imaginative account of his supposed run-in with Trump supporters in “MAGA country” Chicago. 1.

    Microsoft is the latest tech giant taking it upon itself to police so-called “fake news,” packaging an app with its mobile browser that warns users not to trust various news websites, including a number of conservative ones. NewsGuard is an extension available for most browsers that displays a green checkmark or red exclamation point next to users’ address bar, to denote whether websites satisfy criteria “such as whether the site regularly publishes false content, reveals conflicts of interest, discloses financing, or publicly corrects reporting errors.” This is achieved by a team of “trained journalists and experienced editors,” rather than algorithms....

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) See something, say something, do something. – President Donald Trump has seen a national emergency developing along our southern border for several years now, and he’s been saying that for a long time now. On Thursday, left with no other choice by ineffective Republicans who have no spine and Democrats who refuse to negotiate, the President did exactly as he has been promising to do and declared the situation to be a national emergency. Naturally, the fake news media/Democrat axis of disinformation portrayed the declaration as the end of American society as...
