Starbucks CEO: 'I Am Not Aware' That Company Funds Planned Parenthood
May 30th, 2018 4:31 PM
On Maria Bartiromo's Wednesday morning Fox Business Network show, the host asked Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson to respond a Tuesday Washington Examiner op-ed by Alveda King, a longtime pro-life activist and niece of Martin Luther King Jr. King contended that if Starbucks is "really serious about eliminating racism," it will "stop funding" Planned Parenthood.
Pols, Activists, Media Use 2014 Photos to Attack Trump on Immigration
May 28th, 2018 11:58 PM
In one of the more bizarre self-awareness fails ever, leftist activists and politicians have taken to Twitter to denounce conditions unaccompanied illegal-immigrant minors face at federal detention centers. They're contending that the photos involved reflect conditions existing now during President Donald Trump's administration. There's one "little" problem: The photos…
Carlson Interviews 'Roe v. Wade' Producer, Exposes Facebook Censorship
May 27th, 2018 12:35 PM
On his Friday Fox News show, Tucker Carlson interviewed Nick Loeb, co-producer of Roe v. Wade, a dramatic film which plans to show viewers "what happened from 1966 through 1973" that led to the Supreme Court's decision declaring existing laws against abortion unconstitutional. Carlson's interview concentrated primarily on obstacles Loeb has faced in funding the…
Hemingway on Tucker Carlson: Of Course, FBI Spied on Trump's Campaign
May 25th, 2018 5:32 PM
There is a determined disinformation campaign by the establishment press contending — in the face of admitted evidence to the contrary — that Barack Obama's FBI didn't spy on Donald Trump's presidential campaign in 2016. Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist, appeared Thursday on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show to debunk that nonsense.
Few Media Outlets Note Reuters' Midterm Election Poll Swinging to GOP
May 24th, 2018 5:32 PM
Earlier this week, Reuters/Ipsos reported that its generic "How Will You Vote?" poll ahead of November's mid-term elections had swung into Republicans' favor for the first time this year, erasing a double-digit lead Democrats had just four weeks ago. This kind of movement would certainly be news at the Associated Press, the New York Times, the Big Three networks, and…
AP Reveals Contempt for Texas in Post-Santa Fe Shooting Coverage
May 23rd, 2018 8:55 AM
Two recent Associated Press dispatches have exposed how out of touch two of its reporters are with the dominant Second Amendment-defending views of voters and politicians in Texas. They also are flummoxed that most of the students who survived Friday's school shooting in Santa Fe haven't turned into rabid gun-control advocates.
Dumpster Fire at Axios: 'The Public Case Against Trump'
May 14th, 2018 10:02 AM
Axios is yet another leftist website which promised "vital, trustworthy news and analysis" with "no bias" and "no nonsense" but has subsequently descended into parody. Saturday, Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei, two of the site's founders, posted "The Public Case Against Trump," allegedly a list of "known knowns" about "a damning tale…
Press Falsely Treats Trump's Rescission Proposal As 'Cuts'
May 9th, 2018 7:33 PM
The press has mostly gone off the rails in covering President Trump's proposal to rescind $15 billion in unspent funds, insisting on characterizing the move as "cuts." The competition for the worst coverage is fierce, but Andrew Taylor's story at the Associated Press, as carried at the Washington Post, probably wins the prize for the most incoherent headline: "…
AP Avoids Schneiderman's Party; LA Times Kept Story Out of Tues. Print
May 9th, 2018 11:45 AM
The establishment press appears determined to downplay the visibility of the bombshell news of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's resignation, and to avoid referring to him as a Democrat. The Associated Press avoided tagging him as a Dem in one story, and saved the tag for a very late paragraph in another. Meanwhile the Los Angeles Times found a unique solution to the problem in…
Media Ignore Anti-NRA Dallas Organizer's Violent Criminal Past
May 7th, 2018 6:04 AM
Once again, protests against the NRA at its annual convention, this time in Dallas, have been pathetic. Turnout has been "shockingly small." One event had "maybe 100 (people), half of whom were journalists." An actress involved in the protest movement attended — accompanied by allegedly armed security guards, who illegally "chase(d) Texans out of a public park…
AP's Report on Alfie Evans' Death Fails to Note Denial of Food
April 30th, 2018 11:43 PM
UPDATE AND CORRECTION, MAY 2: The post has been revised and corrected to reflect an April 25 AP report which indicated that Alder Hey Hospital did not feed Alfie Evans for 36 hours.
The Associated Press's Saturday coverage of 23 month-old Alfie Evans' death at a UK hospital worked almost as mightily to cover up ugly actions and statements made by the UK courts, medical…
National Press Silent As MS-13 Orders Members to Kill Cops
April 29th, 2018 7:48 PM
On Wednesday, Fox News's Tucker Carlson highlighted MS-13's call for its members to kill police officers in Nassau County on Long Island. Only a few months ago, many members of the establishment press were criticizing the Trump administration's targeting of the gang in its law-enforcement efforts. They and the national press in general have been disgracefully quiet about this latest…
Press Ignores Democrats' 'Revealed' Support For Slavery Reparations
April 27th, 2018 10:29 PM
Perhaps understandably, the establishment press ignored a Saturday Washington rally advocating slavery reparations. But as Brent Scher and Joe Schoffstall at the Washington Free Beacon reported last week, reparations is a key agenda item of a "wealthy Democratic donor club plotting the future of the liberal movement," meaning that Democrats appear to be largely in…
AP, Other Outlets Push 'Blue Wave' Narrative After Another Dem Loss
April 25th, 2018 7:48 PM
At the Associated Press, Politico ("the latest evidence that Republicans face a punishing midterm environment"), USA Today (where Nancy Pelosi was reportedly "thrilled"), and elsewhere, the establishment press once again attempted to create "blue wave" solace for Democrats after a House special-election loss. This time it was Arizona's 8th…
