AP Forced to Issue Correction For Using Democrat Language on Court-Packingby Shifra on October 12, 2020
Last week, the AP Stylebook was amended to discourage the use of the word “riot” to describe violent protests. Because, you know, they were “mostly peaceful protests.” Or something. And now, this: Although at least this time, they were forced to retract their biased shenanigans. Via Fox News. The Associated Press was forced to add an editor’s note to a recent story about the Supreme Court on Saturday, in which the outlet made it seem as if the Democratic strategy to pack the high court would “depoliticize” the bench. The article, written by Iris Samuels, centered on a debate between Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., and Gov. Steve Bullock, his Democratic opponent in the upcoming election. The AP’s original post reportedly...
C-Span Moderator For Second Presidential Debate Worked As Intern For Bidenby Shifra on October 1, 2020
Worked for Joe Biden, Senator Edward Kennedy…and slammed Fox News. Yeah, no bias there 🙁 Via Daily Wire. The second presidential debate, scheduled for October 15, will be moderated by Steve Scully, the political editor at C-SPAN and host of Washington Journal, who once worked as an intern for Senator Joe Biden in college, later working as a staff assistant in Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s communication office. In an interview with Journalism Jobs in May 2011, when he was asked, “Has the quality of broadcast journalism decreased over the past five years?”, Scully took the opportunity to rip Fox News, stating, “I think what has gone downhill is when cable networks get caught in all the titillating news of the...
CNN Claims Biden Didn’t Call Trump’s China Travel Restrictions ‘Xenophobic’by Shifra on September 30, 2020
Well, if CNN said so, it must be true…said no one who cares about the truth, ever. HT Daily Wire. Via CNN: Fact check: Trump claims Biden called him xenophobic for travel restrictions From CNN’s Tara Subramaniam Defending his response to the coronavirus pandemic, President Trump referenced the travel restrictions his administration imposed on foreign nationals who had been in China, then attacked Biden for remarks he had made the same day. Addressing his opponent, Trump said, “I closed it, and you said, ‘He’s xenophobic. He’s a racist and he’s xenophobic,’ because you didn’t think I should have closed our country.” Fact Check – CNN Did Biden say Trump was xenophobic for imposing travel restrictions on China? This is lacking...
WaPo Mocked For Claiming Trump Was Wrong About Violence In Dem-Run Citiesby Shifra on June 29, 2020
The Washington Post’s motto should be changed from ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness’ to ‘Democracy Dies in Unbridled Trump Derangement Syndrome’ Via Daily Caller. The Washington Post tried to push back on President Donald Trump’s claim that the most dangerous cities in America are run by Democrats – but the graph provided largely proved Trump’s point. Trump said Wednesday that “every one” of America’s “20 most dangerous” cities “are Democrat run.” WaPo’s analysis headline wrote that “Trump keeps claiming that the most dangerous cities in America are all run by Democrats. They aren’t.” The article, however, did not provide a single city run by a Republican in the top 20 most violent cities per capita. According to data WaPo gathered to...
Video: CNN Reporter Caught Removing Mask After ‘Mask-Shaming’ WH Staffby Shifra on May 17, 2020
On Thursday, CNN’s Kaitlin Collins asked President Trump why some WH officials were not wearing masks. On Friday, it looks like she thought the cameras had stopped rolling. Oops. Via BPR. 💥WATCH CNN KAITLAN COLLINS 💥 💥YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THIS 💥 💥RT💥 Follow @V_4_Vendatta for more truth bombs. pic.twitter.com/TcBZWtdMxm — Vendetta is V (@V_4_Vendatta) May 17, 2020 Besides being loud and rebellious like Jim Acosta, CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins is, it would appear, a hypocrite — one who was caught on camera removing her coronavirus mask moments after the conclusion of Friday’s White House briefing. This of course raises the question of why she even had a mask on in the first place considering that removing a...
Video: CNN’s Brian Stelter Claims Conservative Media Obsessed With… Russia Probeby Shifra on May 13, 2020

C-Span Posts Inaccurate Transcripts of Trump Briefings: Reportby Shifra on April 30, 2020
Why would a news outlet publish inaccurate comments made by President Trump? — asked no one, ever. Via American Thinker. C-SPAN is publishing inaccurate transcripts of President Donald Trump’s remarks during the vitally important national coronavirus task force daily briefings. Yes, really. So Trump is being falsely attacked for what Trump never said (again). The worst of it, lately, is Trump asking questions to scientists. Those questions have been transformed into statements that Trump never made. But as I endeavored to clear up the fog, I was shocked to discover that C-SPAN’s textual transcripts are the source of the confusion. The quotes that Trump-haters are throwing around happen to be accurate reports of the inaccurate C-SPAN transcript…. On April 23,...
CNN Slammed Trump For Coronavirus Death Rate Comments, Now Reporting… Exact Same Statsby Shifra on March 31, 2020
Breaking: CNN will be making a formal apology to President Trump…on the 12th of Never. Via Daily Caller. CNN journalists bashed President Donald Trump for saying on March 4 that the death rate of the novel coronavirus is likely much lower than data indicates, but the network published a report Monday evening that backs up the president’s previous statement…. “I hesitate to even print the United States president’s words here, because they’re so at odds with what health experts are saying,” CNN’s Brian Stelter wrote about Trump’s alleged “spurious claims.” “Trump has misled before. He has not until now done so during a health crisis,” CNN’s Jim Sciutto tweeted…. “No big deal — just the President of the United States...
CNN Cuts Off Segment With Trump Official When He Says ‘US Was Dealt Bad Hand By China’by Shifra on March 27, 2020
Could CNN please stop advertising they are “fair and balanced” ? Oh wait, that would be Fox News. Never mind… Via Red State. On Thursday, White House Trade Advisor Peter Navarro appeared on CNN. Hosting the show was Brianna Keilar. As the clip begins, Navarro is saying,”We all, as a country, got dealt a bad hand by China.” It takes a second for Keilar to absorb Navarro’s comment. Then, she puts her hand up and tells him, “Uh, Peter, that is just a waste of time to say that. I’m gonna leave it there. Peter Navarro.”…. So resistance Twitter is going all YAS QWEEN for Brianna Keilar for this Peter Navarro interview. She ended it by saying it was "a...
NBC Spin: Biden’s Testy Exchange With Voter Is ‘Tough Talk, New Dem Tack’by Shifra on March 11, 2020
Whoever thinks it’s a ‘clever campaign strategy’ for Biden to call a voter a horse’s a**, threaten to slap the man and say he was “full of s—, is going to have to see a chiropractor after all of this twisting. Yes, President Trump hits his political opponents back, hard, whenever he is attacked. But comparing this to Biden’s out-of- control temper tantrum when confronted with a legitimate question by a concerned voter is absurd. Autoworker who confronted Joe Biden about gun control: He ‘went off the deep end’ And, “nice touch” by MSNBC, to edit the video of the confrontation: MSNBC's take on Joe Biden attacking a union worker in Michigan, calling him "full of sh*t", a "horse's ass,"...
‘Des Moines Register’ Endorses Liz Warren Because Of Her… Honesty?by Shifra on January 27, 2020
Why is the Des Moines Register endorsement so coveted by the Dem candidates, since their editorial board seems totally clueless? And here is another question, from Matt Wolking, Deputy Director of communications for the Trump campaign: The Des Moines Register says Elizabeth Warren, who lied about being Native American in order to get ahead and lied about sending her son to private school, would “treat truth as something that matters.” Are they idiots or just messing with us? — Matt Wolking (Text TRUMP to 88022) (@MattWolking) January 26, 2020 Via Daily Wire. Ahead of the Iowa caucuses next week, The Des Moines Register endorsed Sen. Elizabeth Warren, saying she would “treat truth as something that matters.”…. Warren has a difficult...

Epic Fail: CNN Ratings Hit Three-Year Low With Impeachment Circusby Shifra on December 6, 2019
Looks like everyone is watching Fox, and no one is watching CNN. And that includes CNN’s Brian Stelter: How many times will the Barron/baron moment be replayed on Fox tonight, you think? I've seen it twice in the past 30 minutes. — Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) December 5, 2019 Via Daily Caller. CNN posted its lowest primetime ratings in three years over the Thanksgiving holidays, while Fox News posted higher ratings than CNN and MSNBC combined…. It was CNN’s worst primetime week in three years, and its worst week among the 25-54 demographic. The low ratings come as House Democrats have been conducting hearings on the impeachment of President Donald Trump….
Flashback: WaPo Columnist Who Mocked Melania’s Coat Called Hillary ‘Style Icon’by Shifra on December 3, 2019
According to Wapo’s Robin Givhans, Melania Trump’s coat is “ridiculous.” But Hillary Clinton is a style icon ? OK, got it. Whatever… Via Federalist. You’ve likely noticed that many in the media are a bit emotionally invested in defeating Donald Trump. Even so, this headline from the Washington Post takes things to dramatic new journalistic lows:…. But in a non-partisan way, Clinton’s proximity to the presidency has invited designers to reconsider the relationship that women have to power and how it manifests in attire and style. Designers have responded in ways that have been inventive, charming and reassuring. They have refused to be caught up in all the old clichés of polished jackets and below-the-knee skirts. And they are thinking...
Newsweek Slams Trump for Golfing On Thanksgiving… While POTUS Flies To Afghanistanby Shifra on November 29, 2019

President Trump slammed Newsweek over its story on his Thanksgiving plans, which it said included “tweeting, golfing and more,” though he ended up making a surprise visit to US troops in Afghanistan. “I thought Newsweek was out of business?” the president wrote along with a retweet of his son Donald Trump Jr.’s photo of the commander-in-chief serving Thanksgiving dinner to the service members….
