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...

Because democracy dies…in unbridled ‘journalist’ bias. Anyway, the tweet was just one big misunderstanding. Or something. Via PJ Media. ….A Washington Post “reporter” covering Congress published a tweet celebrating the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump. When called out on it, she quickly took the tweet down and pretended her words were “misinterpreted.”….

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….

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...

That awkward moment when Trump Derangement Syndrome makes your mag look really foolish. Fake news gonna fake! pic.twitter.com/ykmlenbFLi — Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) November 28, 2019 Via NY Post. 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…. The writer began the story by writing, “As with any other day of the year, Trump will probably be tweeting, or expressing his opinions in another way.”…. In...

If you are wondering how it is possible to report on middle-class healthcare skyrocketing costs from 2008 to 2018, without bothering to mention Obamacare as a possible factor, read last week’s ABC report. Wasn’t Obamacare supposed to lower costs? Wasn’t it named the *Affordable* Care Act? And now, the Dems are trying to foist an even more horrible scheme on us, with millions losing their private health insurance, and dumping everyone into Medicare For All, or, as it should be called, Healthcare For None. HT Twitchy. In 2008, middle-class workers spent about 7.8% of household income on premiums and deductibles. By 2018, that figure had climbed to 11.5%. https://t.co/u1iaCkAfoA — ABC News (@ABC) November 21, 2019 Gee, what happened between...

Detention center under *Obama* The Fake News Purveyors, er, MSM, were forced to retract their story after attributing Obama-era child detention center statistics to President Trump. But notice how, in their retractions, they mention “the year 2015” rather than “Obama.” Via Fox News. Several media organizations were forced to make retractions Tuesday after falsely attributing a staggering Obama-era migrant child-detention statistic to President Trump. On Monday, Manfred Nowak, an expert from the U.N. Global Study on Children Deprived of Liberty, claimed that 100,000 migrant children were detained by the Trump administration and indicated that it was the “world’s highest rate” of detained children. The following day, however, he acknowledged that the cited number actually was from 2015 — under President...

Reading the NYT, you would think the Trump Administration is taking away our clean water. Via NY Post. “Trump Administration Rolls Back Clean Water Protections,” ran The New York Times headline on the repeal of Obama-era Environmental Protection Agency rulemaking. Don’t buy the hype: Team Trump’s move wasn’t a blow against clean water but a win for basic justice. All the pre-Obama protections of the water supply remain in effect. This simply undoes a move that gave EPA jurisdiction over vast amounts of dry land, in clear violation of Congress’ intent. By adding terms such as “adjacent waters” and “tributaries” to Clean Water Act coverage, the move empowered EPA officials to grab power over seasonal streams, farm irrigation ponds, roadside...

CNN hit the trifecta of bad publicity, all in one week. It could not have happened to a better, er worse, er…well, you know what I mean. Via Fox News. It’s been another rough week for CNN as the network suddenly has a plethora of off-screen issues in addition to its usual ratings struggles. “Just when one thought things couldn’t get any worse for CNN, they did,” NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News. “In CNN’s current form, they’ve always had putrid ratings, disingenuous personalities and a pathetic inability to simply cover the news – instead fearmongering the small, anti-Trump audience into submission – but this past week was possibly the worst ever in totality.” The liberal news network...

Reading the Independent UK headline, you would think the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) killed four innocent men out for a stroll: “Israeli army kills four Palestinians attempting to cross Gaza fence” Here is the headline of the same event, reported by Times of Israel: IDF says large-scale terror attack thwarted as troops prevent Gaza infiltration — 4 Gazans with AK-47s, RPGs, hand grenades and hunting knives killed when one throws grenade at soldiers during attempt to scale barrier; Hamas says they ‘acted independently’ Via Honest Reporting. When is a terrorist not a terrorist? Judging by a recent Independent headline, the answer would seem to be when they are thwarted in the act of staging an attack on Israel. On Saturday...

This Washington Post article is absurd and laughable. You know who was into Karl Marx? No, not AOC. Abraham Lincoln. https://t.co/p7uG2JtEWx — The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) July 27, 2019 But it caught the eye of the Dayton mass-murderer, who took it seriously. HT Heavy. Connor Betts, the Dayton, Ohio mass shooter, was a self-described “leftist,” who wrote that he would happily vote for Democrat Elizabeth Warren, praised Satan, was upset about the 2016 presidential election results, and added, “I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding.”…. Via Federalist. The Washington Post has seen better days. The newspaper that once brought us Watergate published an article last week titled “You know who was...

The NYT has a long history of biased reporting, from their “cover-up” of the Holocaust in WWII to their frequent anti-Israel coverage. And today’s story of NYT caving to the liberal mob, changing their headline of Trump’s speech, is another shameful example of their so-called journalism. Good luck to Palin in moving forward with her lawsuit. Let’s hope she wins...bigly. Via The Hill. The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday ruled that Sarah Palin can move forward with her defamation lawsuit against The New York Times, two years after a lower court judge dismissed the case. Palin had sued the newspaper for defamation over an editorial that tied an ad from the former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential...

An entire segment on President Trump and honeybees…and CNN wonders why their ratings are sinking like a stone? Via Western Journal. An increasingly common, if disheartening, aspect of the predominately liberal establishment media’s coverage of President Donald Trump is to frame everything he does or says in the most negative fashion possible…. CNN has arguably perfected the “art” of portraying everything done by Trump as being terrible, and its recent report on the U.S. Department of Agriculture temporarily suspending a survey on honeybee populations is just the latest ridiculous example…. The USDA’s National Agriculture Statistics Service announced on July 1 that it would not collect data for July ahead of the release of its annual Honey Bee Colonies Report. That...

Well-deserved, CNN. 🙂 Via NY Post. CNN’s prime-time ratings are cratering. The cable news titan founded by Ted Turner in 1980 dropped to 15th place in the coveted 8 p.m.-to-11 p.m. time slot last quarter after losing 20% of its viewers, according to TV ratings tracker Nielsen. That’s five slots below where it was this time last year, Nielsen said…. The network drew 761,000 total prime-time viewers in the three months ended in June, putting it behind MSNBC’s 1.7 million viewers and Fox’s 2.4 million prime-time viewers. Fox ranked in first place — and MSNBC second place — among basic cable networks in prime time, Nielsen said…. In the coveted demographic of ages 25 to 54, Fox averaged 373,000 viewers...

How could they not know that the photo was from 2014? As the Daily Caller points out, the AP called out the erroneous use of this photo last year. And now Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who for some reason feels the need to compete with ‘Sandy’ Ocasio-Cortez for “person most desperate to be in the news cycle 24/7” is promoting the lie of “child abuse” at the detention centers. Maybe he should talk to the Hispanic pastors who toured the border facility lambasted by Ocasio-Cortez and say they are ‘shocked by misinformation’ Via Daily Caller. The Hill, a national political news outlet, erroneously tied a 2014 photo of migrant children sleeping in cages to a story about the current conditions of...
