Media botches its job with phony anti-Trump headline

I could do this all day long. This and only this. And I still wouldn’t have time to do them all. But here’s the latest today: Drudge corrects the record — actually corrected it a long time ago. Globe & Mail doesn’t care. They leave their headline in place. @ericContrarian put it succinctly: As did […]

The DNC is *NOT* unhinged, if we understand correctly.

CNN’s Jake Tapper “reported” yesterday that Trump’s press conference was “unhinged.” This is an email to me today from the Democrats, which is obviously very, very important, since it’s “re: the biggest political scandal in American history.”  Presumably it’s even bigger than last week’s “biggest scandal in American history.”  Golly!  Just wait until Ivanka Trump wears an […]

Media reporting: easy to spot the abject dishonesty with comparisons

There’s honest reporting and there’s dishonest reporting. Today, once again, the dishonesty is obvious to anyone who actually knows the facts, like me. Here’s honest reporting from the Wall Street Journal on the appeal before the (very liberal) 9th Circuit Court regarding the Trump administration’s temporary immigration restrictions from seven countries, in which the judges […]

The progressive left demands “civility” and “dignity.” Ohmygod.

The left needs to have a serious talk with itself. Wow. Gotta love the progressive left's demand for "civility" and "dignity." pic.twitter.com/fl1vH7PG2t — Joel Johannesen (@JoelJohannesen) February 3, 2017   By Joel Johannesen Letter to the Editor.

News media sleuths fails to find support for Trump. Here’s some. Lots.

I posted this at a Canadian site, but being about Trump and the media (the anti-trump), it holds up well here too.  I don’t need to tell Global News how to do their job… no wait that’s hilarious. Of course I do. Somebody does. I think we “get” what their opinion is. here’s mine; when you […]

Yeah the scientist/media industrial complex is political

What an amazing coinkydink that just as the Trump administration’s EPA Administrator to be, Scott Pruitt, is to be grilled today by the climate alarmist Senate Democrats, this amazing news also, um, becomes available, at the exact same time, forcing — forcing — the media to place multiple stories about it, in the most prominent […]

Jail for man-buns, peeing in bushes, and assorted other crap for Friday, January 13, 2017

Since it’s Friday, here’s some assorted lighter stuff I found on the internet today: 1. Eureka. The only good use for man-buns has finally been found: jail. Note that when we refer to “man-buns,” we use the term “man” very loosely. 2.  The liberals’ New York Times division continues the (seemingly coordinated amongst all the […]

tweet re FL shooter 2017-01-06_143516 - 300px

F-35s, Peggy Noonan, and another shooting – for Friday Jan 6 2017

1. Here’s a strong rebuke against the F-35 program, which is laid out here as (and certainly appears to me to be) the epitome of Washington’s systemic bloat, bureaucratic stupor, and institutionalized cronyism. Even early supporters of the system like Canada are today struggling to make the final decision over its ultimate purchase, and articles like […]

Email from DNC 2017-01-06_124644

Dems sell sad post-election shirts to express dour feelings and non-acceptance of election results

Oh happy day. This sway is being offered by the Dems today via email. How cheery. And how charming. And hey, what a “grown-up” (pace Joe Biden) and positive way to accept the election results — and America’s representative democracy — and cheerily move on. How, you know, progressive! By the way it’s being sold […]

Obama liar lies pants on fire (square)

Washington Post leads the pack in false/fake news

Nobody is doing a better job of deciphering and explaining the latest round of false/fake, totally biased, and just plain bad journalism, than the left’s very own star reporter, Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept. I first read the facts behind the false news about the supposed Russian hacking over the Christmas holiday, when Wordfence (a […]

Electoral College left-wing BACKFIRE: more electors ditch Hillary than Trump

Trump lost two. Clinton lost seven but only four of those were successful in ditching her. Oh my. So much left-wing losing. CNN and MSNBC look now like they did on election night again. Morose. Mad. Almost as bad as election night, or the night Fidel Castro died. And they’re suddenly covering all the other […]

Julia Ioffe tweet crop- 2016-12-14_152052

Alt-Nut journalism from Politico contributing “journalist”

Unhinged left-wing reporter assholery from a contributor at the liberal Politico.com today: “Journalism!” How bad was that Tweet? Bad enough that a gajillion people — from both the right and left — expressed their Twitter outrage. No doubt as a result of that twitterstorm — and only because of that, the blunderous Tweet was followed-up by a […]

Robotic checkouts? Say no more.

Capitalism is coming to the rescue of those store and restaurant owners who no longer feel the love from their employees. Employees who applied for their job, were given one because, again, they apparently wanted one(!), but who then almost robotically start calling in sick and showing up late and going on twenty smoke (or […]

Coulter the laughing hyenas.

I keep reading all these mainstream media articles written by reporters and “experts” who all presume to know what will now happen in a Trump presidency. But I don’t understand why they’re even printed. They’re written by people who simply couldn’t be more wrong about these things — demonstrably so. Why even keep them on staff? […]
