CNN Takes the Bait on Diversity

Written by Brian C. Joondeph

CNN, famous for fake news, focuses their 24-7 news cycle on anything damaging to President Trump, even if they have to provoke it or make it up. Their low television ratings reflect the lack of public interest in their incessant Trump bashing. In late June, “In primetime, CNN lost to HGTV, Investigation Discovery, the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, and the Food Network.”

When CNN is not Trump bashing, they are virtue signaling to fellow leftists.

Trump and the Media War

Written by Jan LaRue

The anti-Trump media are comparing President Donald Trump to Joseph Stalin because the president fires back at his critics.

An allusion to the wisdom of philosophers residing in the joint applies to media whiners: “if you can’t do the time, don’t do the slime.”

The president’s daily dose of name-calling by media includes the following: he’s Hitler, Stalin, racist, Mussolini, Mao, Pol Pot, racist, Nero, racist, mentally deranged, tyrant, racist, unfit, fascist, racist, dictator, hateful, racist, liar, illegitimate, colluder of all things Russian, schmuck, jackass, warmonger, and racist, and that’s just MSNBC.… Continue Reading

Trump is More Popular Than Obama and it’s Driving the Fake Newsers Nuts

Written by Autumn Price Johnson

President Trump’s popularity is soaring among voters in spite of round-the-clock attacks from CNN’s Jim Acosta and others in the Fake News industry.

“When they see the anger from the media – the seething rage against this president, it drives people to the president’s corner,” Republican National Committee spokesperson Kaley McEnany said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show.

McEnany cited a new Rasmussen poll showing President Trump has a current approval rating of 48%, while former President Barack Obama had an approval rating of 46% at the same point in his presidency.… Continue Reading

‘Fake News’ Is Not a Fake Term

Written by David Limbaugh

The left and Trump-opposing right are predictably annoyed at President Trump’s persistent description of the liberal media as “fake news.” Like it or not, the term as he uses it has merit.

Trump’s opponents hysterically claim he threatens the free press when he uses that term to describe them, just as they accuse him of other alleged abuses of constitutional power. In fact, unlike President Obama, Trump has governed within his constitutional authority.… Continue Reading

The Real Problem With Fake News: We Can’t Agree on a Definition

Written by William M. Briggs

On the last day of bad old last year, Lake Superior State University released its 43rd annual List of Words Banished from the Queen’s English for Misuse, Overuse and General Uselessness.

The ripest for excision was “fake news.” “Let that sink in.”

I mean, “let that sink in” was another “impactful” phrase needing banning. As was (can we get an Amen?) “impactful.” (Most banned words are those that fill the air in corporate meetings.)

“Fake news” has to go not because there is no such thing, but because (a) people have the habit of calling real but unwanted or undesirable news “fake,” and (b) because defining it isn’t so easy.… Continue Reading

Exposé of Fake News Machine CNN

Written by Laurie Higgins

A bombshell undercover video narrated by James O’Keefe and released on Tuesday, June 27, 2017, shows CNN supervising producer John Bonifield admitting that the Trump collusion tale is “mostly bullsh*t” that CNN pushes because it’s a ratings blockbuster.

Bonifield admits what is obvious to many Americans about the mainstream media’s evidence for the endless Russia story: “We don’t have any big giant proof….I just feel like they don’t really have it, but they want to keep digging.”

When asked why CNN is “constantly like, Russia this, Russia that,” Bonifield answers, “Because it’s ratings….Our ratings are incredible now.”

Fifteen-year journalist and producer veteran Bonifield agrees with Trump that the dominant media’s obsessive pursuit of this story for which there is no evidence is a “witch hunt”: “I think the president is probably right to say…’you are witch-hunting me.’” Bonifield admits it’s a witch hunt because there is “no smoking gun” and “no real proof.”

Bonifield claims the laser focus on the nonexistent Trump-Russia collusion tale is being orchestrated from the top with CNN CEO Jeff Zucker ordering journalists to “get back to Russia,” after taking a day to cover Trump’s decision to pull out the of the climate accords.… Continue Reading

The Need for a Middle America News Network

Written by Bruce Walker

The decline and lurch to the left of the Fox News Network provides an opening for any astute conservative billionaire: create a news network specifically intended to provide news from the viewpoint of most of America, which is to say the seventy-five percent of Americans who live in Flyover Country.  While the geographic concentration of political power in America is appalling, the geographic concentration of media power is much worse.

Because the media defy elections and, in fact, determine elections, having almost all national news pass through the tiny channel of the New York-to-Washington Beltway is toxic to our national life.… Continue Reading

4 Likes, 2 Dislikes from Trump’s First 50 Days

Written by Jon Schweppe

Generally, the first 50 days of the Trump Administration have been an absolute joy to watch. The media and the Left have been apoplectic as President Donald J. Trump largely honors his campaign promises and does exactly what he said he would do. Truthfully, Trump has been everything we hoped he would be and more.

Still, that’s not to say there haven’t been some disappointments. Here are four things I like and two things I dislike from the first 50 days:

For CNN, The Embarrassments Pile Up

Written by Monica Showalter

First, President Trump refused to take their questions.  Later, he tweeted that they were a network of “fake news.”  Then they got caught in a fake news scandal, of the grossest sort, reporting some of the “golden showers” phony dossier on Trump as straight news and getting caught and discredited.  Turned out it was just the product of some disgusting left-anarchist’s febrile imagination, and only Buzzfeed made a bigger fool of itself.

Liberal Media Invented ‘Fake News’ LONG Before Conservative Media Was Born

Image result for fake news

Written by Todd Warner Huston

The watch words of the day seems to be “fake news” with liberals using the concept as a weapon to shut down all center right news and opinion outlets on both the Internet and TV. But the fact is, the liberal media invented “fake news” many decades before those on the right finally had enough of media bias and started their own news outlets.

Liberals have spent the entire month after Election Day proclaiming every non-liberal website or TV network to be purveyors of “fake news” even going so far as creating a list of sites they claim are all lies and publishing wildly biased “studies” of said sites to “prove” they are filled with “fake news.”

Losing Democrat presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, came out of mourning to blast the right’s “fake news” even as she was one of its biggest purveyors.… Continue Reading
