  • WashPost Media Columnist: Ban Trump Liars from Sunday News Programs!

    NewsBusters.org ^ | February 18, 2017 | Tim Graham
    On Wednesday morning, Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan explicitly advocated that since Trump administration spokesmen are liars, they should be denied any admission to the network Sunday talk shows. She called up Sunday show hosts and demanded it. Can you imagine the Post arguing in 1998 that the Clinton administration should be denied access to television because they were obviously lying about Monica Lewinsky? Here’s Sullivan’s conclusion: There is no reason to be surprised about the public statements of the Prevarication Administration. But there is reason to doubt whether giving proven liars a regular platform is something that ought...

    Thursday on Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough urged Donald Trump to realize that “the press always wins” in fights withpoliticians. In the same hour, Scarborough criticized an editorial in The Wall Street Journal for not focusing on, what he considered to be, the most important points following former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s resignation. Scarborough huffed, “Donald Trump has tried to delegitimize the courts…Don't screw with federal judges it never turns out well for you. And the courts won that round.

    Those who accuse CNN and other mainstream media outlets of “fake news” will probably revel in a recent decision by a federal judge in Atlanta, Georgia. While Judge Orinda Evans didn’t all out declare that CNN was peddling in falsehoods, she did take aim at the network in an initial judgment in favor of a former hospital CEO who sued CNN accusing them of purposely skewing statistics to reflect poorly on a West Palm Beach hospital. Judge Evans didn’t mince words in her 18-page order allowing the case to move forward, and dismissing CNN’s attempt to get it thrown out of court.Davide Carbone, former CEO...

First of all, Trump totally controlled the event from start to finish, called out media outlets for what he considered dishonest coverage, refuted stories, networks and reporters, admonishing them to be honest in their coverage and just report the news instead of coloring it. It seems most politicians fear the media,...

They involve security and the impact his visits are having on people and businesses in Palm Beach. At Palm Beach County Park Airport in Lantana, just six miles from Mar-a-Lago, the situation is dire.

One email confirms—again—that the Obama administration knew the day after the attack it was not a random act of violence stemming from an anti-Muslim video. That was the excuse shamefully propagated by top Obama administration officials (including the president himself) and swallowed whole by a media establishment desperate to help Obama win re-election six weeks later.According to the summary of a call on September 12, 2012 between State Department Under-Secretary Patrick...

Take off your partisan hats for a second.” During live coverage, Lester Holt chided, “It was contentious. It was ugly at moments and we haven't seen anything like it.”

Eight years later, Obama handed off to Donald Trump a country with challenges, but no immediate crises looming. Less than a month after taking office, though, Trump finds himself awash in catastrophes that are all of his own making. Trump's biggest mess results from his choice of retired Gen. Michael Flynn to be his national security advisor.

    If Morning Joe had a hook, they would have yanked presidential advisor Stephen Miller off the set of the Sunday shows he appeared on yesterday. Today's Morning Joe devoted a long segment to eviscerating his performance. The essence of the criticism was two-fold. First, that Miller spoke too much about his personal views rather than those of the president he serves. Second, that in declaring that the powers of the president to protect the country "will not be questioned" he was expressing an undemocratic view running counter to the principle of judicial review.

    Most people thought the Falcons had beaten the Patriots. Including the leading newspaper in Boston. Via Field Yates of ESPN.com, an early edition of the Boston Globe declared victory for the Falcons with a headline that proclaimed: A Bitter End. Appearing under that was a photo of Falcons defensive back Robert Alford returning an interception from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to the end zone for a touchdown that put Atlanta ahead 21-0 in the first half. New England eventually would trail 28-3 in the third quarter. Inevitably a collector’s item, the erroneous conclusion proves the danger of declaring any sporting...

    Donald Trump made it an early priority to dismantle the top domestic and economic achievements of his predecessor's administration, pushing for a repeal of the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) and eschewing global trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership. But his most ardent supporters might have a surprise coming: Many Americans who would bear the brunt of Trump-administration policies are the same people who chose the GOP candidate for president in November. "I think you're going to get a disproportionate impact on people who supported Donald Trump but maybe don't realize that his policies may end up hurting them instead...

    Things are bad. And they seem to be getting progressively worse. Right-wing speakers are being shouted down and cancelled on university campuses, men’s rights student groups are being denied funding, and anyone who expresses any view that runs contrary to the hard left’s dogmatism runs the risk of being reported to the Human Rights Commission, doxed, or worse- losing their job or professional license due to pressure from activists. Not only is the ‘free marketplace of ideas’ a bygone of the past, but the political right is being silenced and subsequently decimated. But where is all this coming from? The...

    Screen-capture of "Videos" page at Rocky Mtn PBS Photo on top titled "Rural Rebellion" of Trump doing a Thumbs-Up, with half his thumb obscured by the title, making it look almost like a closed-fist gesture. Photo at bottom of Trump, Pence, etc marching (Inauguration parade?) And in between is a 3rd photo of some "other marchers". Photo placement & themes are purely coincidental, d'ya think?

    Journalists can’t seem to get their stories straight in the opening weeks of the Trump administration, whether in tweets or in articles where falsehoods have been spread almost daily. The mistakes have not just been from newer liberal news outlets such The Huffington Post or BuzzFeed, but from legacy media like Reuters, The Washington Post, and The New York Times. What follows are several botched stories or conflicting reports since President Trump took office.

    This person imitating a newsman over at the fake news site known as MSNBC actually called Trump the 'most dangerous and ignorant president in history.' He then backs it up with lies, proven easily right here. What is it about the fake news media at CNN, MSNBC and the rest? Their lies cannot be hidden in this internet age. Second video goes into more detail of this MSNBC fake reporter named Lawrence O'donnell - and how he has been wrong about Trump 100% of the time. Last video (third down this page) is ALL revealing and you should use it...

    The question House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi faced on capitalism and the Democratic Party at a CNN town hall was not planned, according to a new report. According to the Huffington Post, New York University sophomore Trevor Hill had agreed with CNN moderators to ask Pelosi a "personal" question at the Tuesday event, after he had proposed a question on communism and been shut down during the planning of the event. “According to a Harvard University poll last May, 51% of young voters between the ages of 18 and 29 no longer support capitalism. The Democratic Party inarguably failed to...

    3 shares A Two important things happened tonight: Donald Trump reversed Barack Obama’s policy toward Israel’s settlements, and the New York Times headline on the story about it was “Trump Embraces Pillars of Obama’s Foreign Policy.” #1 is obviously the matter of the greatest importance. #2 is meaningful because it’s part of a pattern of reporting on the Trump administration by the mainstream media that features breathless and hurried assertions of fact on policy that turn out not to hold water once they are examined. First, to Trump and Obama and Israel and the settlements. On Thursday night the White...
