And the Winner Is…

Trump broke the internet…

Ever the provocateur, the president yesterday released his much-anticipated list of “Fake News Award” winners. They were posted on GOP.com and the site summarily crashed from the surge of traffic. The media’s reaction was, as always, predictable. Rather than keep you in suspense, here’s the list and the ensuing fallout:

2017 Fake News Awards – The full list
1. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.

2. ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.

3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.

4. TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.

5. Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.

6. CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.

7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”

8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand.

9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.

10. The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.

11. And last, but not least: “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!

Jim Acosta Fires Back At POTUS Trump After CNN Wins FOUR FAKE NEWS AWARDS

Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta was far from pleased after President Trump bestowed CNN with four “Fake News” awards Wednesday evening. Acosta, who was speaking on a panel organized by Freedom of Press, responded to the news, stating “I would say having been called fake news myself, the president is the king of fake news.”

Earlier in the discussion, Acosta defended against criticism for asking the President if he was a racist in relation to his “sh*thole” remarks.

“God damn it, I’ll say it out loud … it is our right to ask if the president is a racist,” Acosta blurted out.

2017: The Year the News Media Went to War Against a President

■ The Trump presidency was the biggest story of the year, accounting for one out of every three minutes of evening news airtime — nearly 100 hours in total.

■ The tone of coverage has been incessantly hostile, especially for a new President in his honeymoon year: 90% negative, vs. just 10% positive (These percentages do not include neutral statements).

■ More than two-fifths of evening news coverage of the President (43%) focused on controversies, not policies, with the Russia investigation alone accounting for one-fifth of all Trump coverage (1,234 minutes).

■ Despite their massive coverage of Russia, the networks had almost no airtime for questions about how the investigation began, or whether special counsel Robert Mueller’s current investigation is biased.

Report: Highest-ever political bias in media, most can’t name ‘objective news source’

Americans see more political bias in news than ever, and nearly seven-in-10 blame media owners for influencing the ways stories are reported, according to the latest failing report card on the nation’s news business.

According to “American Views: Trust, Media and Democracy,” a new report from Gallup and the Knight Foundation, the percentage of Americans who see a great deal of political bias in stories has nearly doubled since 1989.

Sarah Sanders speaks for America on S**tholegate: ‘We’ve wasted five days fighting over one word’

Since that ill-fated remark, it’s been six straight days of high-horse moralizing, virtue signalling, hand-wringing, and bed-wetting from politicians, celebrities, and talking heads eager for America to know just how “morally superior” they are compared to that dastardly man in the White House who dared to say something out loud that everyone knows deep down is true, even if they refuse to admit it.

10 of the Dumbest Questions Reporters Asked During Trump’s Health Press Conference

White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson told reporters on Tuesday that President Trump is in “excellent” health and has “no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever.” But that didn’t stop the press corps from asking a lot of really stupid questions. Here’s a sampling.

1. One reporter asked the White House physician how Trump can become as fit as Obama — who struggled to kick a smoking habit. He then proceeded to whine that the press office doesn’t keep a tally of how much time Trump spends on the golf course and asked if Jackson could help them with that.

Leftist Toilet Mouths Condemn Trump as They Corrupt Nation

Let’s be clear: Leftists certainly object to the substance of Trump’s comments, that we shouldn’t continually absorb poor, unskilled, often functionally illiterate and unassimilable people from Third World nations. But they also object to his alleged style, labeling as obscene the use of s***hole (toilet) to describe such places. So to show us how bad such language is, the Crude News Network (CNN), for example, used it at least 36 times on Thursday. It’s sort of like inveighing against animal abuse and then bludgeoning dozens of dogs to death on air to prove your point.

[CtH: This reminds me of something I’ve noticed often in movie and t.v. outtakes. On Christian movie sets, there are no bleeped out (or non-bleeped out) cuss words when people mess up a line. On mainstream movie and t.v. sets, almost everybody seems to punctuate a goof with “f***” or “sh**.”]

Dems Think 800,000 Illegal Immigrants Are Worth Forcing Active Military To Go Without Pay

Congress has three days to strike a deal to keep the government funded through October. If members fail to come to an agreement by Jan. 19, all “non-essential” government employees and active U.S. Military personnel will be working with out pay (including troops currently deployed). Funding for agencies like federal museums or national parks will also be cut off.

Congressional Democrats are apparently content with allowing military and law enforcement personnel to go without pay to secure protections and benefits for illegal immigrants and members of their extended families.

Red-State Democrats Gamble
Importantly, three Democratic officials in states that went heavily for Trump in 2016 — Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill — were all absent. Sens. McCaskill and Manchin said they were not invited to the White House event.

Normally, the lawmakers who represent states that voted for the other party’s presidential nominee are the most bipartisan — even if it’s just to listen. Early on, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Sen. Donnelly hopped on a plane with Trump. But now that they’re in the heat of fundraising, they do not want any part of it.

Democrats Block 2018 Budget, Gain Another Month to Push Amnesty
Late Tuesday, the GOP gave up on 2018 budget talks and drafted a new temporary budget plan, dubbed a Continuing Resolution, which would keep the government open for another month until February 16. That date will mark almost five months after the 2018 budget was slated to begin October 1.

If the CR passes the House and Senate, the GOP and the Democrats will get another month to develop a 2018 budget while Democrats gain another month to wear down GOP and Trump opposition to their amnesty-plus plan.

Don’t fall for Operation Demoralize 2018

The key to Democrat victory in November 2018 is to keep Republican voters home.

WHEN THE DEMOCRATS FLIPPED A REPUBLICAN SEAT IN WISCONSIN LAST WEEK. THE DEMOCRAT TURNOUT WAS 35%… THE REPUBLICAN TURNOUT WAS 12%.

I would not be surprised to see that strategy used more generally against Trump supporting Republicans in the House. And it could be effective. Someone who normally would vote Republican but stays home is as good as a vote for Democrats.

So expect there to be a sustained effort to demoralize Republican voters, Trump supporters, and independents who are willing to vote Republican. That’s part of the reason Democrats and the media have shifted to round-the-clock accusations of racism against Trump.  I have written about this phenomenon in the past. I call it Operation Demoralize.

Trump schools GOP Congress to play hardball

Instead of rolling over for Democrats and virtuously claiming they’ve “reached across the aisle,” as they always have done, Republicans are now playing hardball. They’ve maneuvered to put entitlements and swing state-sensitive tax cuts on the line as bargaining chips to avoid a government shutdown. In doing this, they have just laid out a plan to beat the Democrats at their own game.

Do Democrats really want to face the 18 million parents whose nine million children use the CHIP program to explain that all that could come to an end because of the Democratic Party’s higher priority of amnestying 800,000 DREAMers? Do they really want to face the New England voters in the medical device industry, which has been singled out for punitive Obamacare taxes, or explain themselves to all the union workers set to pay massive Obamacare “Cadillac” taxes just for the “privilege” of having good health care insurance?

Voters don’t actually want Oprah to run for president

“Oprah’s strong standing among Democrats does not translate to a clear interest in her launching a presidential campaign,” said Kyle Dropp, co-founder and chief research officer of Morning Consult. “While 77 percent of Democrats have a favorable opinion of Oprah, only 38 percent say she should run in 2020.”

The “Oprah 2020” rumors were sparked earlier this month following her emotional speech at the Globes, in which she touched upon the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements sweeping the nation recently.

Trump Honors Civil Rights Icon Barbara Jordan ‘Who Called for End to Chain Migration’

“As Chairman of the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform—now called the Jordan Commission in her honor—she stood up to special interests determined to profit politically and financially from our broken immigration system. She remained steadfast in promoting common-sense reforms that would better protect the rights and needs of Americans,” the presidential message stated.

Trump also noted that Jordan “called for an end to chain migration, which has allowed millions upon millions of low-skilled foreign nationals to compete for opportunities and resources against our most vulnerable American citizens—many of whom come from African-American and Hispanic-American communities.”

Grassley under fire for planning vote on 17 judicial nominees

Liberals Furious NHL Picked Trump-Supporter Kid Rock to Perform at All-Star Game

But, as Bucholtz revealed, a list of folks on Twitter were incensed that Rock was chosen to perform at the game; because the Detroit-based singer is a well-known supporter of President Donald Trump and a Republican booster. Kid Rock even briefly contemplated running for the U.S. Senate from Michigan.

But, liberal members of the media attacked the NHL on Twitter calling Kid Rock a “racist” and slamming the league for “going political” with the choice:

Judge Upholds Alabama Voter ID Law In Win For Common Sense

A federal judge in Alabama has thrown out a lawsuit against the state’s voter ID law, finding that the law doesn’t prevent anyone from voting because “nearly the entire population of registered voters in Alabama already possess a photo ID that can be used for voting.”

For those who don’t, obtaining a qualifying ID can be done “with little to no effort and no cost.”

FAKE NEWS: The Wall Street Journal?

Of all the news sources I never would’ve suspected …

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit says the WSJ has been hating on Trump since he announced his intention to run for president.

On Friday, the WSJ published a report that Trump associates paid off a former porn star after a fling with Donald Trump in 2006.

There is no proof. There is no evidence. It is all hearsay. Trump denies it. His lawyer denies.  EVEN THE PORN STAR DENIES IT.

2018_01 10 Stormy Daniels refutes WSJ claim

CNN and the liberal news media ran with the salacious story anyway.

Hoft continued, exposing another WSJ lie — i.e., that Trump said he has a good relationship with Kim Jong Un. What the president actually said was that he WOULD have one, not that he DID have one.

Doesn’t it kind of expose the whole “Trump just cares about big business” meme as a Big Fat Lie, given that the WSJ is so ANTI-Trump?

2017 Anti-Trump FAKE NEWS Wrapup

This is just a partial list. I deleted a whole bunch of stuff to keep this post a reasonable length.

I'm with the media

ALL YEAR: According to the U.S. intelligence community, Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, but did NOT “hack the election” — i.e., change voter tallies or anything of the sort.

  • The media talked incessantly about how “Russia hacked the election”, supposedly to help Trump get elected.  Nobody explained why Russia would WANT Donald “Make America Great Again” Trump in office rather than their long-time, uranium-selling collaborator and successor to Barack “America Sucks” Obama, Hillary Clinton.

JANUARY: On January 20, Time reporter Zeke Miller wrote that a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. had been removed from the White House.

  • This was not true. Miller didn’t happen to see the bust in the crowded Oval Office, so rather than ask someone, he went ahead and peddled the Democrat lie that Trump is a flaming RAAACIST.

JANUARY: When a new president takes office, it is routine for the previous administration’s White House web content to be archived, so the new administration can use whitehouse.gov for its own business.

  • The New York Times reported that the Trump administration had “purged” any “climate change references” from the White House website, as if Trump was some kind of digital book burner.

JANUARY: It is customary when a new administration enters the White House for officials to submit resignations. Trump accepted the resignations of four mid-level State Department officials.

  • WaPo reported that the U.S. State Department’s “entire senior administrative team” resigned en masse in protest of Trump’s presidency.

JANUARY: Five days before President Trump’s executive order banned travel from some predominantly Muslim countries, Mike Hager’s mother died in one of those countries.

  • The story that she had died BECAUSE of the travel ban went viral.

FEBRUARY: President Trump and Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto talked by telephone.

  • Based on an AP report, Trump told Nieto he was planning to invade Mexico. The story went viral, but even the Mexican government said that was not at all what Trump had said.

FEBRUARY: A leaked draft of a memo from inside the Department of Homeland Security contained a suggestion that maybe the National Guard could assist in the “investigation, apprehension and detention” of criminal aliens.

  • AP reported that President Trump was definitely considering mobilizing 100,000 National Guard to help round up and DEPORT illegal aliens.

FEBRUARY: NBC News national correspondent Peter Alexander tweeted that Trump was going to allow Russian companies to do business with Russia’s secret service.

  • The story that Trump was obviously cozy with the Russian government went viral. In reality, the change was merely a technical policy fix that had been planned under Obama.

MAY: The GOP’s American Health Care Act said states could apply for waivers that would allow insurance companies, under certain limited circumstances, to charge higher premiums to people based on their personal medical histories. States that were granted these waivers would be required to set up special high-risk insurance pools to help defray costs for these people, as is common with car insurance.

  • CNN and several others reported that the bill would classify rape and sexual assault as preexisting conditions and allow insurance companies to deny survivors coverage, which was a total lie.

JUNE: On June 6, CNN ran a story claiming former FBI Director James Comey planned to REFUTE President Trump’s claim that Comey had assured him three separate times that he was not under FBI investigation.

  • On June 6, Comey’s prepared remarks were released to the public, showing that Comey would actually CONFIRM Trump’s assertion.

NOVEMBER: While in Japan, President Trump followed Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in dumping a small bowl of fish food into a koi pond.

  • CNN dishonestly cropped Abe’s prior action out of the video, then reported that Trump’s bowl dump had been a diplomatic faux pas.

DECEMBER: In late 2016, PRESIDENT-ELECT Trump told his transition team to contact world leaders regarding the incoming administration’s foreign policy objectives, which is standard for incoming presidents.

  • ABC News reported that CANDIDATE Trump had told Michael Flynn to contact Russia.

Trump still standing despite media onslaught

“According to the latest Rasmussen poll, the President has a 46% approval rating, which is the same level that Barack Obama had at the end of his first year. The difference is that the media loved Barack Obama, but hates Donald Trump. To be as popular as his beloved predecessor when so much of the media is arrayed against him is certainly one of the President’s most impressive accomplishments of 2017.

Text:

As he finishes his first year in office, President Donald Trump is hitting his stride politically. Right before Christmas, the President led the Republican Party to a major congressional victory. Passing the huge $1.5 trillion tax cut legislation a political triumph for the President and the GOP.

The victory was secured despite a very thin GOP majority in the Senate and the President’s perilous relations with a number of anti-Trump Senators. Fortunately, the benefits of the bill persuaded all Republican Senators to support the far-reaching legislation. The booming economy will now grow even faster in 2018.

The tax bill will give average Americans and businesses needed relief. It will also eliminate the odious Obamacare mandate and open drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), which will help America become more energy independent and create more manufacturing jobs.

With lower overall rates and a one-time tax holiday, American companies will have the incentive to repatriate trillions of dollars that are currently being held in foreign countries. Allowing corporations to grow will undoubtedly lead to more employment and spending on beneficial purposes such as new equipment.

All of these aspects of the tax bill will help create even more growth in a strong economy, which expanded at a fast clip of 3.3% in the third quarter of 2017. What is truly impressive about the robust economic progress was that it occurred despite the devastation of several massive hurricanes hitting the mainland of the United States.

Passing the tax plan builds on the solid progress made in the overall economy over the last year. In 2017, the stock market soared, consumer confidence rose to a 17-year high, and housing starts increased 3.3% in November, reaching a 10-year record. Most importantly, there has been strong job growth. Unemployment decreased to 4.1% while unemployment for Hispanic Americans is at an all-time low and for African Americans; it reached a 17-year low.

A vital component of the job growth has been manufacturing jobs. In the past year, there has been a significant increase of over 170,000 manufacturing jobs. This is a nice contrast to the economic environment of the Obama administration which was toxic to American manufacturers. During the previous administration, there was an increase in lower paying service sector jobs and part-time employment. In addition, millions of Americans became so discouraged that they left the workforce altogether, creating the lowest labor force participation rate since the Jimmy Carter era. Fortunately, under President Trump, these trends are reversing.

The success of the President’s first year has not been limited to the economy. In 2017, there has been tremendous progress in the civilized world’s ongoing war against Islamic jihadists. The terrorist group ISIS suffered tremendous losses in 2017 as the President unleashed our military to fight the enemy. In contrast to the previous administration, President Trump is allowing our military commanders to make battlefield decisions. We have also eliminated the restrictive rules of engagement that were hampering our success in fighting ISIS. As a result of these new measures, ISIS has lost 98% of its caliphate and is in serious decline. If this type of success had been achieved during the Obama administration, the media would be continually highlighting the story. Instead, this Trump administration achievement is the most under reported story of 2017.

The reason is that President Trump has been the target of an unrelenting media barrage while former President Obama was a press favorite. President Trump has faced more hatred from reporters than any politician in American history. Independent researchers have uncovered that over 90% of the media reports about President Trump have been negative. For example, according to the Pew Research Center, compared to his predecessor, President Trump received only one-eighth as much positive media coverage, but three times as much negative press.

These negative reports have contributed to the President’s low poll numbers. It is hard for the President to gain traction with the American people when the media is constantly promoting an anti-Trump agenda. However, it has started to turn around because Americans always “vote their pocketbook.”

Voters have the good sense to support Presidents who are good for the economy. For example, during his first term, President Ronald Reagan was very successful in producing quality American jobs and creating growth. Not surprisingly, he was rewarded with a historic landslide in 1984. The same dynamic may occur with President Trump in 2020.

The great economic news has started to boost the President’s approval ratings. Americans are beginning to realize Donald Trump’s policies are having a beneficial impact on not only the overall economy, but also on their individual financial situation. These real facts will begin to overcome the “fake news” of the Russian collusion story and the other media created controversies. In the end, the truth always wins, even in American politics.

In a year end interview with the New York Times, the President noted that he believes the media coverage will eventually turn positive and help him win re-election in 2020. According to Trump, “Another reason that I’m going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes…Without me, The New York Times will indeed be not the failing New York Times, but the failed New York Times.”

President Trump is certainly the politician that the media loves to hate. Amazingly, the negative coverage has not totally destroyed his approval ratings with the public. According to the latest Rasmussen poll, the President has a 46% approval rating, which is the same level that Barack Obama had at the end of his first year.

The difference is that the media loved Barack Obama, but hates Donald Trump. To be as popular as his beloved predecessor when so much of the media is arrayed against him is certainly one of the President’s most impressive accomplishments of 2017.

Ugly, hate-filled, foam-at-the-mouth screeds

The title above is what Stilton called Newsweek‘s Christmas Eve article, HOW TRUMP AND THE NAZIS STOLE CHRISTMAS TO PROMOTE WHITE NATIONALISM.

Way down near the end of this piece of trash, the “journalist” author admits, “Trump’s rhetoric differs from that of Nazi Germany’s, most notably because he has never advocated genocide.”

  • Gosh. How very FAIR and BALANCED of you. :oP

The Left really wants very hard to believe that their media actually does call apples apples. But this week’s Pew Research report, “17 striking findings from 2017”, shows how delusional they really are.

2017_12 26 Pew graphic media prez

  • As you can see, coverage of President Clinton was actually fair and balanced (despite Shrillary’s claims about a Massive Right-Wing Conspiracy).
  • Coverage of President Bush was slightly less so, with the proportion of positive stories dropping in favor of neutral stories. But the negative stuff stayed the same.
  • It was only with President Obama that the media went into full bore worship mode.
  • But even their lack of balance about Obama got swept away by their ugly, hate-filled, foam-at-the-mouth reporting on President Trump.

Mysterious truck blocks CNN’s view of Trump’s golf course in Florida
WHAT A SAD, JOYLESS LIFE THESE PEOPLE LEAD
A mysterious truck blocked CNN’s view of President Trump’s golf course in West Palm Beach, Fla., one day after the network touted “exclusive” footage of the president hitting the links.
Noah Gray, a producer for CNN, tweeted a picture of a white box truck in front of hedges adjacent to the golf course on Wednesday.
He noted that during Trump’s winter vacation to his Mar-a-Lago resort the network has repeatedly captured video of Trump golfing from a public sidewalk. But, Gray said that was “not possible” on Wednesday.
The Secret Service has responded to CNN’s outragey reportage after a white truck blocked stalking journalists from getting clear shots of the president’s golf game. (Pulitzer Prize-winning stuff potentially, we know.)

Cuomo pardoned 18 immigrants who had committed low-level offenses, saying his pardon was based on their rehabilitation efforts. Cuomo blasted President Trump’s hard-line immigration efforts in the process.
“While the federal government continues to target immigrants and threatens to tear families apart with deportation, these actions take a critical step toward a more just, more fair and more compassionate New York,” Cuomo said in a statement.

Philly Judge Who Resigned over Sex Scandal and Was Jailed for Lying to FBI Now Running for Congress as Democrat
Willie Singletary, a former Philadelphia Traffic Court judge, has announced his run for the First District seat currently held by U.S. Rep. Robert Brady, who is also chairman of Philadelphia’s Democratic City Committee, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Singletary, 36, has quite a record to run on. In 2013, he was caught up in a ticket-fixing scandal that prosecutors at the time said benefited only Philly’s rich and powerful and cost the city and state hundreds of thousands in unpaid fines.

Conservative fires back at Don Lemon, calls CNN ‘a dog whistle for race-baiting, anti-Trump bigots’
On Tuesday, radio host Todd Starnes was among the panelists who joined “Hannity” guest-host David Webb to take on CNN anchor Don Lemon’s assertion that President Trump use of “Merry Christmas” is a “dog whistle” to his base.

“So let me say something about Don Lemon and, quite frankly, CNN. Their entire network is a dog whistle for race-baiting, anti-Trump bigots. I mean, it’s 24/7! They really believe that ‘Merry Christmas’ is a dog whistle. It makes me wonder what they think the words ‘Ho! Ho! Ho!’ would be code for.”

The First Anti-American President
Barack Obama will no doubt be chronicled, among other things, as the first anti-American president. No wonder; he’s the product of an educational system that has become increasingly radical and anti-American with each passing decade, and his mother was a stereotypical leftist anthropologist with a passion for the Third World.
The pattern is unmistakable. As Luis Fleischman notes, Obama wanted to make deals with our enemies, Iran being the most dramatic example.

Trump Is About To Repeal Obama-Era Fracking Regulations

FRACKING IS WHY YOU’RE NOT PAYING $4.50 FOR A GALLON OF GAS ANYMORE
President Donald Trump’s administration will give a belated gift to American energy producers and repeal former President Barack Obama-era regulations for hydraulic fracturing operations on federal lands.
The Interior Department is expected to publish a repeal of the rule in the Federal Register on Friday, and already the oil and gas industry are celebrating. Producers challenged were locked in court battles over the rule since it was finalized in 2015.

Trump Blasts Joe Manchin For Refusing To Work With Him
“Like Joe Manchin,” Trump said in the interview. “He talks. But he doesn’t do anything. He doesn’t do,” Trump said. “‘Hey, let’s get together, let’s do bipartisan.’ I say, ‘Good, let’s go.’ Then you don’t hear from him again.”
Manchin is up for re-election in 2018, but said in August that he doesn’t care about being reelected
I don’t give a s**t, you understand? I just don’t give a s**t,” he said in an interview with Charleston Gazette Mail. “Don’t care if I get elected, don’t care if I get defeated, how about that

Debunking Lies About Immigration and “Family Reunification”
Time to put the interests of American families first
Currently America has a population of unknown millions of illegal aliens who entered the United States covertly and without vetting by running our borders. Their presence in the United States and their very identities are unknown and unknowable.
We also have millions of illegal aliens who violated the terms of their lawful admissions into the United States and have gone “missing in America.”
Incredibly, so-called “Sanctuary Cities” and “Sanctuary States” harbor and shield these illegal aliens from detection by the Department of Homeland Security and its component immigration law enforcement agencies, even as mayors of those cities demand to be given federal funds to combat crime and protect their residents against international terrorists they may be harboring.

FAKE NEWS: Zack Miley’s Five CNN Takeaways

2017_06 29 CNN fake Russia story toon

​I have to admit, I used to think CNN was just a left-leaning news outlet that hides its political bias but still occasionally reports the truth. Now I think CNN is a Trump-Russia wish fulfillment outlet that is so inept you would have to be a complete dumb*** to not see the leftist bias. Now what is the interim period between those two opinions, you ask? 16 hours, 16 earth-shattering hours to my mental capacities, 16 hours straight of CNN.

Who is it that came up with the masochistic idea of subjecting themselves to 16 hours of leftist propaganda? None other than our friends over at Louder with Crowder, of course! Being a masochist myself, I decided to join them on their journey, eventually leading me to ponder what exactly was more absurd: witnessing dwarf Jesus best dwarf Santa in the figgy pudding battle of the ages, or the fact that CNN is still on air… Sorry, I’m getting a bit off topic; I think the staggering mediocrity of Wolf Blitzer just gave me a mini-aneurism. Nevertheless, here are the five lessons I painstakingly learned from the #CrowderCNNLivestream.

1. Breaking News: The Story Already Broke

Every 15 minutes or so, CNN posts a story with either “Breaking” or “Developing” appearing on the chyron.  In reality, CNN broke only 3 stories during the 16 hours I watched.

2. This Just In: Trump X Putin 16/7

About half of CNN’s coverage is dedicated to fueling a fantasy land where Trump-Russia collusion actually exists.

3. Stop The Presses: CNN Is Not Republican Friendly

Almost all the coverage of the day was critical of Republicans and roughly zero reflected badly on Democrats. Many hours were devoted to talking about how Republicans wanted to kill millions of children by defunding CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program), which was never true. When Republicans actually passed funding for CHIP, CNN gave the story about 5 seconds.

4. Read All About It: I’m So Dumb, I Don’t Think I’m Capable of Reading Anymore

The only newsworthy things covered for the day were the U.N.’s ruling to condemn Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, Republicans funding CHIP, and the Melbourne attack. I very nearly missed the fact that Republicans funded CHIP and I never heard the Melbourne attacker was of Afghan descent and was partially motivated by the mistreatment of Muslims. I also didn’t hear a single thing mentioned about the Uranium One story despite it being trending on Twitter.

5. Developing: Jake Tapper Deserves a Better Home

Yes, I do still think Jake Tapper has a left-leaning bias, but I do think he tries to disseminate truth from time to time.

Summary: I may not have walked away from this experience any smarter, but I certainly gained the wisdom that there is much merit to uttering the phrase “CNN is fake news.” For that revelation I owe thanks to Steven Crowder and Co.
