The Bad News Media

Americans find the press less credible than the Trump administration and that’s no accident.  After 8 years of watching in disgust as the media slobbered all over their BFF Barack, we’re now being further repulsed as these same “real news” reporters push out over-hyped, inconclusive, half-true or flat-out incorrect stories.

media-fact-checkers-by-hope-n-change

The Washington Examiner is keeping an on-going list of these bad stories.  Here are the two latest:

Feb. 11: American-born Olympian and Muslim Ibtihaj Muhammad claimed in an interview on Feb. 7 that she was detained “just a few weeks ago” by U.S. Customs agents.  Reporters tied it to Trump’s recent executive order temporarily barring immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries.  The incident actually occurred in December 2016 when Barack Obama was still president.

Feb. 10:  A day after Trump talked to Chinese President Xi Jinping, The New York Times print edition said he hadn’t talked to him in months.  Trump tweeted that the Times had printed fake news.  The media pounced, using an updated online version of the incorrect print version of the Times’ story.  But the online version carried no editor’s note about the fact that it had been significantly altered from its original form, which was what had been in the print version Trump read.

Grab a sandwich and a tall beverage before you go read the rest, because it’s a LOOOOOOOOOOONG LIST!

Hard-Hitting Questions Liberal Reporters Asked Obama

Liberal reporters have their panties in a bunch because President Trump has been giving a significant share of presser questions to conservative news outlets.

Apparently, they think that they, and only they, can ask the “tough questions” that presidents should answer.

Never mind that the questions the “not real news” reporters have asked are excellent.

Also never mind that, for eight long years, these same “real news” reporters have been slobbering all over their BFF Barack who was, you know, the president at the time.

Peter Hasson, Reporter and Associate Editor at the “not real news” Daily Caller, compiled a list of 13 “hard-hitting” questions that these “real” reporters asked back when the president preferred them to conservative reporters.

“In this fatherless world, where did you learn to love?” – Harry Smith

“You definitely have some impressive accomplishments. … More than a lot of presidents who manage to get reelected. My question is, is it enough? Why do you think you deserve to be reelected?” – “60 Minutes” Steve Kroft

“Have you given up on the Republicans? Have you stopped reaching out to them? Are you just out there now trying to get your message across?” – “60 Minutes” Steve Kroft

“Tell me, what do you consider your major accomplishments?” – “60 Minutes” Steve Kroft

Trump Pees in Media’s Oatmeal

It’s not supposed to be like this. As long as anyone can remember, the ‘news’ reporters have had free rein in controlling presidential press conferences and even the daily briefings. Then Donald Trump happened. After an eight year vacation, the media finally went back to investigating … with a vengeance. They were as happy as a pig in slop when they forced out General Kelly, a better man than the lot of them. Trump’s nominee for Labor Secretary, Andy Puzder, succumbed to intense pressure from the left over allegedly hiring an illegal to do his housekeeping. (I’d bet my retirement check most if not all of the people raising the hell have some questionable employees as well.)

[CtH: How freaking hypocritical is it of them to condemn Puzder for hiring an illegal when they PROMOTE THE HIRING OF ILLEGALS?!]

The president and PM Netanyahu held a joint press conference yesterday. Trump completely ignored ABC, CNN and NBC, instead calling on reporters from Townhall and the Christian Broadcasting Network.

Bibi Visits Trump And LEVELS Reporter Looking For A Fight- MEDIA DOWN!


President Donald Trump has walked in and is smoothing ruffled feathers and helping things to be strong and healthy again. And yet despite the incredible relationship that exists between Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu the media is crying that Donald Trump is anti-semitic… seriously???

“There is no greater support of the Jewish people and the Jewish state than president Donald Trump,” Netanyahu said resolutely. “I think we should put that to rest.”

Trump DESTROYS ‘Hateful’ Palestine During Visit with Netanyahu

Palestinians are hateful and evil. They are taught to love death and the highest honor in this lifetime for them is to kill Jews and infidels. John Kerry literally told Israel, you can be Democratic or Jewish, but not both.

Remember When: Hey Liberal Media, This Is Probably Why President Trump Didn’t Call On You Today
Our own Katie Pavlich asked President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about how to deal with Iran after their blatant violations of the nuclear agreement and what compromises both the Israelis and the Palestinians need to consider in their ongoing conflict with one another. These are legitimate questions.

As Cortney noted, the liberal media was ignored and they went into full meltdown mode. CNN’s Jim Acosta said that the “fix is in” concerning who will be able to ask the president questions, describing Townhall as “a very conservative website.”

[CtH: “A very conservative website” whose representative asked a really good question, as opposed to the Gotcha Flynn gloating CNN probably had planned!]

I’ll just leave this insufferable exchange between former President Obama and the Chicago Tribune’s Christi Parsons after his 2012 re-elect win to show why we probably shouldn’t be shocked that the Trump White House is taking questions from outlets who used to be left in the dark.

Angry ABC in ‘Open Hostility’ at Trump for ‘Shutting Down’ Free Speech

In the post-press conference coverage, Vega ranted, “I want to tell you about the open hostility right here in this room. You know, I’m sitting right here kind of in the middle of the pack of a number of journalists, mainstream reporters, if you will, and there is open anger in here about the fact the President did not take any real questions about the issue of the day.”

[CtH: You mean like the “real questions” you used to ask your BFF Barack?]

Karl sneered that Trump called on “friendly conservative news organizations.” He lashed out:

“Amazing that on a day like this he could have a press conference and not face a single question on the big story of this, the New York Times bombshell report that members of his campaign allegedly had contacts with the Russians during the campaign. No questions on that.”

[CtH: No, the questions were about ISRAEL, because, you know, their PRIME MINISTER WAS VISITING and THAT WAS THE TOPIC OF THE PRESSER.]

The question of the day, according to Vega, was Michael Flynn’s resignation.

Speaking for other journalists, she raged, “And so, you’re feeling an open sense of anger and frustration here.” Reporter Karl sputtered, “George, it is astounding. We have now had four presidential news conferences and the President, for the most part, has simply avoided calling on people from news organizations.”

[CtH: The ARROGANCE of them deciding who is and who isn’t a news organization!  After the tingly legged, softball throwing, pillow fluffing these “real” news orgs didn for the past eight years.  But hey, KEEP IT UP, MORONS.  Cuz we’re really looking forward to EIGHT years in the TRUMP White House.]

CNN Reporter Says ‘The Fix Is In’ With Conservative Media and the Trump Administration

“The two questions that were asked or called upon from the president in this news conference went to the Christian Broadcasting Network, which is obviously owned by Pat Robertson, the televangelist down in Virginia. It’s a very conservative broadcasting network, and Townhall.com, which is a very conservative news website,” Acosta said.

[CtH: And not a word about how GOOD those questions were, just sneering at the sources of the questions.  This is a variation on the logical fallacy of arguing from authority. But golleeeeee, I’m just a loathsome conservative blogger, so what do I know?!]

13 Hard-Hitting Questions Mainstream Reporters Asked Obama

Mainstream reporters are outraged that conservative media outlets are receiving a significant share of questions at White House press conferences.

Only liberal reporters, the line of reasoning goes, are capable of asking the tough questions needed to hold those in power accountable. Here are a sample of questions asked of former President Obama by mainstream reporters.

1. “Golf, what does it do for you?” – CBS
2. I’m wondering if you think that [Republican presidential candidates are] uninformed, out of touch, or irresponsible?” – CNN
3.“Do you have a vindictive streak?” – NBC
4. What has “Enchanted you the most from serving in this office?”- NYTimes

Despite the Left’s hysteria, Trump’s approval rating among LIKELY VOTERS continues to rise.  53% today.

DEFCON prescribes five graduated levels of readiness (or states of alert) for the U.S. military. It increases in severity from DEFCON 5 (least severe) to DEFCON 1 (most severe) to match varying military situations.
