Examples of "spiked" news stories
Items which appear to have been deliberately omitted by the mainstream press

News media bias is dangerous because of the way some stories are reported — with important details omitted — and because of the stories that are suppressed.

The most obviously suppressed issue in the mainstream press is the subject of abortion.  The Democratic Party, in close cooperation with the news media, does not (and cannot afford to) allow a rational discussion of the facts, because if people would stop to consider what an abortion really is, the practice would come to an immediate halt.

Other issues are also conspicuously absent from the evening news on television.  Most stations do not report suicides and don't report cases where people successfully evade the police and get away with their crimes.  When somebody gets away with murder, a reporter will say, "the case is still under investigation", or, "police are still looking for a suspect."  Even in the newspaper, you have to read carefully to get the whole story in these cases.

The news media have very little to say about widespread everyday violent crime on mass transit systems.  I suspect there is a great deal of violent crime on mass transit vehicles that goes unreported by the victims, and even more that goes unreported by the news media.

One of the most successfully hushed-up news stories in history is the mysterious collapse of World Trade Center Building 7.  No airplane hit that building, yet it suddenly collapsed on the afternoon of September 11, 2001.  The official explanation is that the collapsed resulted from an internal fire, but there was almost no smoke visible when the building fell, which is why there was no news media presence at the building.  We are apparently supposed to forget that it happened, because it hardly made a blip on the news media radar, and the story evaporated within a few days.  More information can be found here.



Editor's Note:
All the information about the Las Vegas mass shooting on October 4 has moved to this page.

Overview:
Weinstein allegations are not the first stories 'spiked' by media.  Many people seem shocked by claims from a former New York Times reporter who says the newspaper sat on her 2004 information exposing alleged sexual misconduct by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.  The Weinstein question aside, I can tell you that every day, in newsrooms around the country, stories are killed because powerful people know how to get them killed.  Recently, a former managing editor of Time magazine said that the only bias reporters have is their bias to get a great story on the front page.  That may be true of good journalists — and there are many.  But good journalists' intentions are impacted by managers and editors with authority to shape and censor; by managers and editors who are lobbied, enticed, pushed, pressed, cajoled and threatened by PR companies, crisis management specialists, global law firms, super PACs, advertisers, "nonprofits," business interests, political figures, famous people, important people, wealthy people, and their own corporate bosses.  An entire industry has been built around companies and operatives that work to get stories placed, discredited or wiped.

Hall Monitor Nation.  The media relentlessly lied to the public about Hillary's health, denouncing conservatives as "conspiracy theorists" for mentioning it.  Then an alert citizen with an iPhone captured Hillary having to be carried to her car at the 9/11 memorial service in 2016.  Mainstream media outlets painted a cherubic picture of Michael Brown after he was fatally shot by Missouri.  He was a "gentle giant," gunned down like a dog as he plaintively cried, "Hands up! Don't shoot!"  HEY!  Wait a second!  How did that video get out of Brown manhandling a tiny Indian man while robbing a convenience store?  That should have been suppressed like the Broaddrick interview!  Would we ever have known about Monica Lewinsky, but for the Drudge Report publishing the blockbuster story that Newsweek had killed?  Currently, the establishment media are in a rage that the public has found out about the modern genocide being waged against white South African farmers.

Protesting French Chanted "We Want Trump" as Media Ignores Them.  There appears to be a new French Revolution underway — an anti-climate change revolution.  The French common folk appear to have rejected the globalists and embraced Donald Trump's country first mantra.  There is a media blackout in the United States on the reason for the protests and riots.

On TV, Only Fox Locates Obama Boasting on Oil Boom: 'That Was Me, People!'  When former president Barack Obama starts bragging about his record as president, sounding remarkably egotistical, the networks seem to ignore it.  New York Times reporter Peter Baker reported on a Houston event where Obama sat next to former Bush Secretary of State James Baker (no relation to Peter) and boasted about how America's oil boom is all his doing:  [Video clip]

The Escalating Assault on Citizen Journalism.  In December 1997, after the FBI arrested independent journalist James Sanders for investigating the destruction of TWA Flight 800, not a single reporter at a post-arraignment press conference managed to frame even one First Amendment question.  In fact, the Newsday reporter argued the government's case, insisting the Justice Department found insufficient evidence to declare Sanders a journalist.  The fact that Sanders had already written two successful investigatory books did not count.  By challenging the media's defense of a Democratic administration, Sanders all but sacrificed his First Amendment rights.  At the time of Sanders's arrest roughly 40 percent of America was using the Internet.  Within 20 years that figure would approach 90 percent.  The Internet was the great equalizer.  It enabled citizen journalists to report stories that the major media underreported or failed to report at all.

More about TWA 800.

Liberal media tell us the left is right, and the right is wrong.  [Louis] Farrakhan, who heads the Nation of Islam, despicably compared Jewish people to insects in one recent rant.  "I'm not an anti-Semite.  I'm anti-termite," declared the left-wind bigot.  Presidential daughter Chelsea Clinton rightly called his comments "dangerous."  But there has been almost no coverage of Farrakhan on the broadcast networks for a year.  That's especially appalling since the press all-but memory holed President Obama's ties to Farrakhan, too.

Former Senior Ohio Lawmaker Arrested for Murder of His Estranged Wife, Media Plays 'Guess the Political Party'.  A former senior Ohio lawmaker who had served as assistant minority whip in the Ohio legislature was arrested this past weekend for the murder of his estranged wife.  He had previously served nine months in state prison for assaulting her in 2014 while a common pleas judge in Cuyahoga County — a position he had been appointed to by then-Gov. Ted Strickland (D).  But would you ever know that Lance Mason was a Democrat?  Not if you relied on the media reporting.

Networks Silent as Dem 2020 Hopeful Compares ICE to KKK.  Under most circumstances, a sitting United States Senator and potential presidential candidate comparing a federal law enforcement agency to the Ku Klux Klan would be major national news.  However, after California Democrat and 2020 hopeful Kamala Harris did exactly that during a Senate hearing on Thursday, the broadcast networks decided it wasn't worth a single second of coverage.  During a contentious confirmation hearing exchange with Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Ronald Vitiello, nominated to become the permanent head of the agency, Harris grilled him about a tweet he sent out three years earlier labeling the Democratic Party "neo-Klanist."  Vitiello promptly apologized for the social media post and acknowledged that it was inappropriate.

Yes, Michelle Obama, YOU helped push out an independent government watchdog..  Michelle Malkin has the story the Obama-slobbering media won't touch.

The Press Is Public Enemy No. 1.  Consider that in a typical presidential election, Washington correspondents vote 93 [to] 7 percent for the Democrat, while the rest of America votes somewhere around 50-50, according to Timothy Groseclose of George Mason University.  The reason that we will never hear our moral superiors in the press condemn Maxine Waters, Tim Kaine, Keith Ellison, or Eric Holder for their endorsements of political violence, then, is that they do not see it as political violence.  In their view, it's self-defense against those who threaten their ideology.  There is a reason, as Chris Buskirk notes, Americans have seen very little coverage of the recent attacks and actual terrorism against Republicans: [...]

ABC, NBC Ignore Antifa Mob Assaulting Home of Fox News Host Tucker Carlson.  The same night the liberal broadcast networks ABC and NBC were acting as though Trump's combative press conference on Wednesday was some kind of affront to the First Amendment, the Washington D.C. area home of Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson was under assault by a radical leftist mob shouting threats.  During both their morning and evening broadcasts Thursday, ABC and NBC ignored the actual attack on someone's free speech.  The CBS Evening News was the only network broadcast program to mention the assault on Carlson's home.

105 Articles Cover Ilhan Omar's Win.  Zero Cover Her Anti-Semitism, Finance Investigations, or Perjury Evidence.  For two years, U.S. media has maintained a near-blackout on the specific evidence of Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-Minnesota) disturbing character and legal issues.  In the 18 hours after Omar was elected to replace Keith Ellison in MN Congressional District 5, the media left zero doubt as to why.  At approximately 3:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday [11/8/2018], Google News was returning 105 links to the search term "Ilhan Omar" which had been posted since her victory. [...] Not one of the 105 linked articles presents the troubling evidence against Omar — except, in two or three cases, to dismiss it without explanation.

Media Uninterested in the First Korean Woman In Congress, Because She's a Republican.  The media loves firsts.  It's obsessively promoting the first gay governor.  The first two Muslim anti-Semitic women in the House, one of whom is accused of marrying her brother (the media obviously isn't mentioning that part), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest elected dimwit.  It's oddly uninterested in the first Korean-American woman in the House.

The case of the disappearing campaign issues.  You don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure out why certain perennial concerns hyped by the mainstream media have disappeared from the 2018 campaign cycle.  The disappearance illustrates the degeneration of the principal American mass media into mere propaganda outlets for the Democrats.  When the topics seemed to work against Republicans, they were almost constantly drummed into the public's consciousness.  They were a threat to our very democracy, and all good citizens were horrified, according to the instructions from our media betters.  But now, because they reflect badly on Democrats, they have mysteriously vanished.

Why did nobody mention that Beto O'Rourke's wife is a billionaire heiress?  Young Beto O'Rourke casts himself as the 'anti-Trump'. But his father-in-law, it turns out, is a billionaire property developer with a contentious relationship with non-white residents — not unlike the President.  Beto's more the proto-Jared Kushner.  The New York Times today [10/29/2018] revealed the highly interesting news that friend-of-the-little-guy Beto married well.  Very well.  His wife is not only the daughter of William D. Sanders, aka the Warren Buffet of real estate, Cockburn can reveal she is the only daughter.  Sanders's portfolio is valued at about $20 billion.

Nearly a dozen Beto O'Rourke profiles, and almost none mention his crony capitalist background.  Rep. Beto O'Rourke's, D-Texas, 1998 drunken driving accident isn't the only thing his media profilers have ignored.  The New York Times did a fine job this week detailing the Democratic Senate candidate's shady history of political backscratching, including a real-estate deal he championed when he served on the El Paso City Council that would've benefited his billionaire father-in-law, developer William D. Sanders.

CBS Skips Anti-Israel Views of Muslim Democrat Running for CongressCBS This Morning on Thursday [11/1/2018] fawned over the woman who would be one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress.  But while journalist Reena Ninan hailed what could be a "Muslim wave" headed to Congress, she completely skipped the anti-Israel views of congressional candidate Rashida Talib.  Sounding more like a press release than a journalist, Ninan enthused, "[Talib] tells me she's looking to change history at a time when most people think it just isn't impossible."  The reporter parroted, "While many have focused on her faith, she says this moment is so much more."  Candidates say a lot of things about themselves.  How about asking a tough question?  That didn't happen.

Why Did Media And Democrats Abandon Their Investigation Into Brett Kavanaugh?  What happened to the multiple allegations of sexual misconduct levied against Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation battle?  The claims ranged from Christine Blasey Ford's remotely plausible if unsubstantiated allegation of a violent attempted rape to Michael Avenatti's completely outlandish and also unsubstantiated allegation of hosting serial gang rape parties.  From September 12 to October 6, the claims absolutely dominated all major media.  They ran on the front pages of all major newspapers and filled the hours on cable and network news.  Magazine journalists at The New Yorker ran with the claims, despite massive corroboration problems.  The claims were taken so seriously by the media and some U.S. senators it led to serious delays of the confirmation voting process.  A hearing was held during and after which all the talking heads on cable asserted Blasey Ford was completely "credible."  Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, even maneuvered to reopen an FBI investigation to dig into the claims.  Then they disappeared.  Overnight.

NBC Tries, Fails To Defend Itself After Sitting On Information That Undermined Kavanaugh Accusers.  An NBC reporter who interviewed one of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's accusers, and who admitted to sitting on evidence that two of his accusers were not credible, is now trying to defend herself and her network.  It's not working. [...] Last Thursday [10/18/2018(?)], NBC acknowledged that a second accuser represented by attorney Avenatti, whose name is still unknown, said her words were "twisted" in her sworn statement and that she never saw Kavanaugh spike punch or act inappropriately toward women.  NBC had this information days before Kavanaugh's confirmation vote, but didn't report it until now.  On Saturday, Snow took to Twitter to defend herself and her network for sitting on information that could have helped Kavanaugh gain some of his reputation back after the salacious allegations.

Why Did NBC And Time Magazine Sit On Their Avenatti Scoops For So Long?  I think Time has an excuse.  I can't imagine what NBC's excuse is.  Remember that newsy quote from him about Democrats needing to nominate a "white male" to stop Trump in 2020? That came from a story in Time magazine.  Avenatti responded predictably when liberals began attacking him over it yesterday, crying FAKE NEWS and demanding that Time reporter Molly Ball provide the full context.  So she did.  Here's the transcript posted last night of her exchange with Avenatti.  Note the date. [...]

NBC News Hid Information that Would Have Cleared Kavanaugh of Avenatti Rape Allegations.  NBC News deliberately hid vital information that would have helped clear Brett Kavanaugh of the serial rape allegations Julie Swetnick and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, leveled against him.  On September 16, Kavanaugh and his loved ones were dropped into a pit of hell due to allegations of sexual assault from Christine Blasey Ford.  Although her story quickly fell apart during public testimony, for the three-plus weeks that would follow, in an effort to derail his confirmation, Democrats and their allies in the establishment media did everything in their power to personally destroy this man as a drunken serial rapist.  NBC News and Avenatti played a huge role in this obscene smear campaign.  One notable example was NBC breathlessly publishing and airing an assault allegation against Kavanaugh that was quickly exposed as a hoax.  NBC did not even bother to independently corroborate this allegation prior to airing it.  A Democrat handed NBC the smear, and NBC ran with it.

Juanita Broaddrick is credible:  Bill Clinton may have raped her.  Almost a year ago, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said that Bill Clinton should have resigned over his affair with Monica Lewinsky.  At the time, I thought Gillibrand was wrong — not to mention a bit tardy — but now I'm undecided.  What moved me, though, has little to do with Lewinsky and much more to do with a name that seems to have been forgotten:  Juanita Broaddrick.  She claimed Clinton raped her.  Broaddrick's allegations first surfaced in the media 1992 as Clinton was running for President, and then resurfaced in 1999 when he was being impeached.

The Editor says...
Uh-oh.  If the news media realizes that Juanita Broaddrick's story is true after all, how many other "right wing conspiracy theories" are also credible?  What if Vince Foster really was murdered?  What if TWA 800 really was shot down?  What if Barack H. Obama really is a Muslim, and his legal name really is Barry Soetoro, and he really does use somebody else's Social Security number?  What if the Oklahoma City bombing really was a terrorist attack (as Jayna Davis describes in her excellent book)?  Ms. Broaddrick is lucky she didn't end up like Mary Caitrin Mahoney, Kevin Ives, Don Henry, Kenneth M. Trentadue, or Ron Brown.

An American Journalist Just Died After a Racist Beating, and the Washington Post Didn't Even Report It.  While the Washington Post weeps and wails over Khashoggi, an anti-Semitic foreign Islamist, it has no interest in the murder of a Jewish journalist in the United States. [...] And there are no conversations about whether top Democrats like Obama and Holder appearing with Louis Farrakhan, or leaders of the Women's March supporting Farrakhan, helps encourage racist and anti-Semitic violence like this.

Donald Trump [is] More Popular than [the] Media Want You to Believe.  We keep hearing about how divisive and unpopular President Trump is, about how "historically" unpopular he is.  This is not even close to the truth.  Doing an apples to apples comparison using the Gallup poll, Investor's Business Daily discovered that Trump's job approval numbers are right in line with three two-term presidents.  As of right now, in the Gallup poll, Trump enjoys a 44 percent approval rating.  And when Investor's Business Daily looked at the approval ratings of previous presidents during this same week in their respective presidencies, they found that Trump is tied with Barack Obama (44 percent) and is doing better than both Bill Clinton (41 percent) and even Ronald Reagan (42 percent).

McCaskill Scandal.  How about the scandal involving Sen. Claire McCaskill's husband, who's been accused of using a federal program intended to help the poor to enrich himself in the 10 years since McCaskill joined the Senate?  McCaskill is in a tight race in Missouri against challenger Josh Hawley, in a year when control of the Senate is up for grabs.  So, a juicy scandal like this would normally be irresistible to reporters.  Except McCaskill is a Democrat.  And as the MRC found, this story got zero coverage on the big three networks.  Then there's the scandal involving a former staffer for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who was arrested and charged with several felonies, after he disclosed personal information on Republican Senators on the Judiciary Committee during the Kavanaugh hearings.  The networks completely ignored this story.

6 Political Scandals The Press Doesn't Want You To Know About.  When the mainstream press isn't busy putting out negative — and often false or misleading — stories about President Donald Trump, they're equally busy burying scandals that involve Democrats.  The Media Research Center recently documented this flagrant bias by omission.

Media Ignores Big Opening and Critical Acclaim for 'Gosnell' Movie.  The new movie about Kermit Gosnell, the notorious Philadelphia late-term abortionist eventually convicted in the deaths of three infants, made it into the Top 10 films at the box office this past weekend — an impressive feat for a crowd-funded film.  But you won't hear the mainstream media talking about it.  "We were [No. 10] on Friday and Saturday, but slipped back to 12 on Sunday," Phelim McAleer, who co-produced the film with his wife, Ann McElhinney, told The Daily Signal.  "We are the No. 1 independent movie of the weekend and [No. 5] per screen average across the U.S."  "This has been achieved despite the mainstream media virtually refusing to review the film, despite it opening nationally," McAleer added.

Six Democratic Scandals That The Elite News Media Suffocated With A Pillow This Cycle.  In the Trump era, liberal media bias is worse than ever.  So, it shouldn't shock us that the Media Research Center's Newsbusters division probably has carpal tunnel syndrome from jotting down all the insanity that is transpiring across CNN, MSNBC, and the Big Three (CBS, NBC, and ABC).  In this media bubble, Trump colluded with the Russians to win an election; he's a tax cheat, a serial sexual abuser, and the most corrupt politician since Henry Clay and the corrupt bargain of 1824.  Outside of this glass case of emotion, the economy is growing at four percent.  There are more jobs than job seekers, and job openings are at a whopping 7.1 million.  Three million jobs have been created, new trade deals with Mexico and Canada are in motion, the Trump tax cuts have formed a solid base for growth, and more than three million working-class families have received bonuses of $1,000 or more.  Oh, and consumer and small business confidence have reached 18-year highs.  And did I mention that unemployment is at 3.7 percent.  Yeah, things are going well, but the Democrat-media complex is hoping that the president fails, of course.

Rand Paul Reveals Media Hid Key Detail About GOP Baseball Attacker.  Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul revealed on Wednesday [10/10/2018] that the media largely ignored a key detail from the attempted mass murder of Republican lawmakers last year at a baseball field in Virginia.  Appearing on Fox News' "FOX & Friends," Paul condemned the violent rhetoric of the political Left and the Democratic Party and warned that someone is going to end up getting killed if the inflammatory rhetoric doesn't stop.  "I was there at the ball field when Steven Scalise almost died from a very, very angry violent man who was incited really by rhetoric on the left," Paul said.

Rand Wonders Why Media Had Little Interest in This Detail About GOP Baseball Practice Shooting.  On Wednesday morning, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) shared a shocking new detail about last year's attack at the Republican congressional baseball practice.  When the shooter, James Hodgkinson, began firing on the lawmakers, he reportedly shouted, "This is for health care!"  Some wondered why the media had not included this detail in their reporting at the time. [...] Unfortunately, a year after that horrific shooting, some leading officials are inciting violence against their political opponents.  Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told supporters to "harass" Trump administration officials in public.  Some seemingly listened and proceeded to bully White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders out of restaurants.  Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told CNN that people should be uncivil to Republicans because they deserve it.  Then, just this Wednesday, former Attorney General Eric Holder told a crowd to "kick" Republicans.

Study: Economic Boom Largely Ignored as TV's Trump Coverage Hits 92% Negative.  In four weeks, Americans go to the polls for the midterm elections that the news media are casting as a referendum on the Trump presidency.  Over the summer, the broadcast networks have continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a President in TV news history — 92 percent negative, vs. just eight percent positive.  For this report, MRC analysts reviewed all 1,007 evening news stories (1,960 minutes of airtime) about the Trump administration on ABC, CBS and NBC from June 1 to September 30, tallying the coverage of each topic and all evaluative comments made by anchors, reporters and non-partisan sources (such as voters or experts).

Pay No Attention To That 'Unexpected' Good Economic News Over There.  The past week saw more signs that the growing economy is benefiting middle class households, including another jump in household income.  Not that you'd know it from the coverage, which is wall-to-wall Brett Kavanaugh.

The Washington Post Sandbagged The Story That Might Have Cleared Brett Kavanaugh.  If you are keeping score, this makes four people — Brett Kavanaugh, Mark Judge, Patrick Smyth, and Leland Keyser — who have denied this incident ever happened under penalty of perjury.  The only person who has not made a statement under oath is... Christine Ford.  Now the Wall Street Journal's Kimberly Strassel reports that the Washington Post knew of Keyser, they knew of her denial, and they refused to report it.

Media Continues Its Slow Suicide.  Americans, in a recent poll, cited inaccuracy and bias as the key reasons why they no longer trust the media.  But there is a more sinister agenda behind this collective media cacophony:  To hide their complicity in the biggest political scandal of all time, which included the weaponization of the nation's most powerful government agencies to spy on a rival presidential campaign; the illegal leaking of classified information to friendly journalists to defame American citizens associated with the campaign; and the sabotage of an incoming presidency, the media is happy to distract us with manufactured non-scandals that advance the political interests of their friends.

Two Days Later:  CNN Has Still Not Done A Story About Farzad Fazeli Who Attempted To Stab Republican Candidate.  It has been two days since a man named Farzad Fazeli tried to stab Republican congressional candidate Rudy Peters with a switchblade and CNN has still not covered the story. [...] Do you think CNN would ignore this story if the political roles were reversed?  Imagine if a Trump supporter tried to stab a Democrat candidate for Congress.  Does anyone believe CNN would ignore that?  They would likely turn it into a lead story and run it for days.

CNN Ignores Switchblade Attack On GOP Congressional Candidate.  More than 24 hours after authorities announced the arrest of a California man who allegedly tried to stab a Republican congressional candidate, CNN has yet to inform its audience of the story.  Farzad Fazeli, 35, allegedly made disparaging remarks about the Republican Party before pulling out a switchblade and attempting to stab Rudy Peters at a festival Sunday, according to the Alameda County Sheriff's Office.  Peters is the Republican nominee in California's 15th Congressional District, where he is challenging incumbent Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell.

New York Times Covered Up Google Tape's Most Newsworthy Details.  The New York Times reported on the explosive Google Tape back in March but chose not to informs its readers of virtually all the key details revealed during this company town hall.  On Tuesday [9/11/2018], Breitbart News obtained video of an hour-plus long company meeting at Google that took place shortly after the 2016 presidential election.  You can watch the full video to judge the context of these individual quotes for yourself — but in my view, what you have here is a smoking gun proving the biggest Internet search engine in the world (by far) intends to abuse its corporate power to affect the outcome of elections, to manipulate searches in a way that will result in political outcomes desired by a multinational corporation and Silicon Valley.

What Francis Knew.  In 2016, after the film Spotlight — which portrayed a group of Boston Globe reporters who uncover a sex-abuse scandal covered-up by the Catholic Church — won the Academy Award for best picture, a cultural commentator praised the movie on the Vatican website.  The Globe reporters, wrote Luca Pellegrini, "made themselves examples of their most pure vocation, that of finding the facts, verifying sources, and making themselves — for the good of the community and of a city — paladins of the need for justice."  Two years later, as a far worse abuse scandal unfolds in the church — a scandal that may involve the pope himself — the Vatican is silent and the paladins of the news media seem eager to ignore the whole thing.

Double Standard:  Obama Defended Russia In His South Africa Speech.  The varied accusations of treason all hinge on Trump not being sufficiently critical of Russia.  Meanwhile Obama had delivered a speech in South Africa which was widely praised for its supposed covert attacks on Trump.  But here's a part of the speech that the media chose not to emphasize because it would only reveal the double standard of Russiagate.

Not One Single Liberal Mainstream Media Outlet Carries Papadopoulos Spygate Revelation that Obama DOJ Set Him Up!  Former Trump campaign staffer George Papadopoulos was sentenced on Friday [9/7/2018] to 14 days in prison after being set up by the Obama Deep State in the 2016 election.  George Papadopoulos went on CNN and ABC this weekend to discuss his role in the Spygate scandal.  Papadopoulos told the liberal anchors about how he was set up by Obama spy Stephan Halper in London after he was brought on by the Trump campaign.

Flashback: Obama prosecuted staff leakers, gave lie-detector tests, 'paranoid'.  Should President Trump need a model to use to track down leakers inside his administration like the "anonymous" insider who challenged his authority in a New York Times op-ed, he need go no further back than the Obama administration that prosecuted leakers and shutout the media.  According to reports at the time from even New York Times journalists, no administration was tougher on leakers and punishing to the media than Obama's, a saga reinforced by reporters who have called Trump's team more forthcoming.  Criticism of Obama's attacks on the media and leakers did not just come in tweets and TV appearances by journalists but in an official report from the Committee to Protect Journalists, authored by former Washington Post Executive Editor Leonard Downie Jr.

Explosive Ivy League Study Repressed For Finding Transgender Kids May Be A Social Contagion.  "Rapid-onset gender dysphoria" among teens and young adults may be a social contagion linked with having friends who identify as LGBT, an identity politics peer culture, and an increase in internet use, finds a study out this month from a Brown University professor.  The study was quickly yanked from Brown's news releases after a transgender activist feeding frenzy, and the journal it was published in is reconsidering the publication.  There is a parent and researcher-driven petition to stand behind the publication of the first study to look in detail at rapid-onset gender dysphoria.

WaPo Buries Bush/Obama Connection To Pin State Department Policy On Trump Administration.  The Washington Post published an article about the U.S. government choosing not to renew the passports of people born near the border, as they are skeptical that those people were actually born in the country.  It's not until the ninth paragraph that the article begins to address that the policy began under the Bush administration and continued under Obama.  The article was titled, "U.S. is denying passports to Americans along the border, throwing their citizenship into question" and was written by Kevin Sieff.  The article addressed the problems faced by "a growing number of people whose official birth records show they were born in the United States but who are now being denied passports."

Household Income Jumps To All-Time Highs Under Trump: Why Isn't This Big News?  Median household income is up more than 4%, the economy is growing fast, optimism is at decades long highs.  Not that you'd know it, since the press is too busy trying to drive President Trump from office.

O'Rourke Media Profiles Didn't Report on Serious Details of 1998 DWI Arrest.  In more than a dozen media profiles of Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D., Texas) and his Texas Senate candidacy written over the past two years and reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon, no publications delved into the serious details about his 1998 arrest for driving while intoxicated.  Those details now include he caused a crash and he attempted to flee the scene, according to a witness who spoke to police.

New Mexico Compound Story Buried by Opposition Media.  What do you think would happen if a compound was found in rural Kansas where children were being held against their will?  Particularly if at least one of the children had died mysteriously and been buried secretly.  And the surviving children were undergoing military-style training designed to help them carry out killing sprees in nearby Kansas government schools.  Finally, the compound was founded and run by the homosexual-hating Westboro Baptist Church.  Can you say Opposition Media jihad against Christians?  First network news reader anchors would be on-site "investigating."  Childcare experts would be interviewed to explain to the audience at home the harm of "forcing religion down children's throats."  Other experts would talk about exposing vulnerable children to firearms.  Neighbors would be button-holed and asked about the compound and its inhabitants.

The Silence Over A Potential Chinese Spy In Feinstein's Office Is Deafening.  With concerns over attempts by foreign adversaries to influence the American political system at a fever pitch — notwithstanding that in the case of the president, the commentariat's charges of certain treasonous Russian collusion have grudgingly been downgraded in slightly more sane quarters to dubious alleged campaign finance infractions — that the story of a Chinese spy in Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office has seemingly died is simply stunning.  From the start, this was a story the media had no interest in covering.  Now it is apparent that our political class has no interest in probing it.

A Perfect Storm Threatens America's Survival.  Fake news on TV and in newspapers starts with outright lies and slander against conservatives and the president of the United States.  One survey found that 90% of news coverage is slanted against the president.  Even more insidious is censorship by omission.  Important stories on sites like American Thinker, Frontpage Mag, Breitbart, LifeZette, the Geller Report, and Drudge will rarely or never be found in the so-called mainstream media.

Who Watches the Media Watchdogs?  Who was it that told America Al Gore won the 2000 election?  Who told us the Fort Hood shooter wasn't an Islamist terrorist?  Who told us a meek and mild Michael Brown was shot with his hands up, begging to surrender?  Who told us CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood front in the U.S., is a "civil rights organization"?  Who is still telling us that after 9-11, there was a violent "backlash" against Muslims in America?  Who told us climate change is settled science?  Who ducked the story about abortionist Kermit Gosnell's Philadelphia slaughterhouse?  Who told us all the troubles in the Middle East are caused by Israel?  Who told us that Robert Mueller's list of indictments proves Trump colluded with Russia?  Who told us it was Trump who initiated the "policy" of family separation at the southern border?  Who ran a fake magazine cover to show Trump looming over a crying Honduran toddler?

Flashback: LA Times Refuses to Release Video of Obama Praising Radical Former PLO Operative Rashid Khalidi.  The Mueller Special Counsel and New York District Attorney's Office seek to destroy President Trump for paying out $130,000 in hush money to two former paramours.  The New York District Attorney's office has picked up the case because New York state crimes can not be pardoned by a president.  It should be noted that Barack Obama's close associates allegedly bribed Jeremiah Wright with $150,000 to go away before the 2016 election.  And the liberal media did all it could to protect Barack Obama throughout his presidency.

More about the Khalidi tape.

Dear CNN: This Previously Deported 'Dreamer' Brutally Slaughtered a Minnesota Woman — Is That 'News?'.  Here's another story that you won't see on CNN.  It doesn't fit the sweet, innocent border-crosser just looking for a better life.  Enedelia Perez Garcia, 27, was stabbed to death on August 12 in Shakopee, Minnesota.  An illegal immigrant, Fraider Diaz-Carbajal, 35, has been charged with second-degree murder (not premeditated) in relation to her death.  And guess what?  He had a lengthy criminal record.

New York Times Deletes Immigration Status Of Mollie Tibbetts's Killer From Headline.  The New York Times opted to delete the immigration status of the man suspected of killing Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts in an update to a headline about the incident Wednesday [8/22/2018].  According to the Twitter account Editing TheGrayLady, The Times made a number of changes to the headline of its story on Tibbetts's murder before finally falling on "Immigrant Is Charged In Mollie Tibbetts Murder in Iowa, and Trump Seizes on Case."

The Most Underreported Stories Of The Week.  If you've been paying attention to the news lately, you would think the only things people care about are Omarosa's new book filled with unsubstantiated claims about the president and former CIA director John Brennan losing his security clearance.  But there are other noteworthy things going on in the country, including the alleged Muslim extremist Compound found in New Mexico, Governor Cuomo saying "America was never that great," Antifa violence and Keith Ellison's #MeToo moment.

Huffpo Reporter Urges Media Not to Cover Antifa Violence.  Vox published an article about the planned Unite the Right rallies this past weekend that indicted antifa for engaging in violence while claiming to be against fascism.  "This weekend in Charlottesville and DC, though, it wasn't neo-Nazis and white supremacists the antifa attacked," the author explained.  "It was police who were there to help keep the peace among all the demonstrators and journalists who were there to cover the events."

Media Conspiracy Theories About Devin Nunes Are Getting Out Of Control.  It is worth noting that Nunes' and others' work doing real congressional oversight has deeply embarassed the media.  Without congressional oversight, the country would not know:
  •   That Clinton and the DNC secretly funded Fusion GPS's dossier.
  •   That Trump affiliates were wiretapped during the campaign.
  •   That a $50 million public relations operation is ongoing to feed Russia stories to the media and government even now.
  •   That the FBI is working with this group running the PR operation.
  •   That Bruce Ohr's wife worked for Fusion GPS.
  •   That top officials were leaking to CNN.
  •   That the unverified dossier was used to justify FISA warrant applications.
  •   That no official intelligence was used in Peter Strzok's electronic communication launching the investigation.
And much, much more.

DOJ & FBI Land a 757 Jet in Clinton's Hometown Little Rock, Arkansas; Load It With Boxes & Documents.  This is very interesting.  A stealth DOJ flight into Little Rock and then back to Virginia — or would have been stealth if it were up to the mainstream media. [...] Apparently loaded with evidence.

Antifa Attacks Journalists; Journalists Then Shamed for Reporting On It.  What a mess the radical left has made of reality this week, particularly when it comes to Antifa and their quest to literally kill the President.  Antifa, or the "anti-fascist" wing of the militant, radical left has long been attempting to convince us that they are freedom fighters of some sort, even though they themselves are openly advocating against the First Amendment, and promoting the same sort of authoritarian culture control that allowed Adolf Hitler to rise to power in the 1930's.  Now, they have even somehow convinced the mainstream media that reporting truthfully on their actions is somehow wrong, even when those actions were vile, reprehensible, and downright fascist in their own regard.

The Sound of (Media) Silence, Minnesota Edition.  Keith Ellison's alleged domestic abuse of a former girlfriend is not his leading disqualification to serve as Minnesota Attorney General.  I think his leading disqualifications for the office are his past involvement with the hate cult known as the Nation of Islam (and his continued lying about same) along with his support for cop killers.  Yet we have heard not a word from the Minnesota media about Ellison's public record in either case as he seeks the position of Minnesota's top law enforcement officer, while the domestic abuse allegations have been accorded a banner headline — ""Keith Ellison denies abuse allegations," as it reads in the hard copy — at the top of page one of the Star Tribune today [8/13/2018].

NBC News Ignores Antifa Attack On Their Own News Crew In Charlottesville.  NBC News has ignored the story of their own reporter and news crew being attacked in the streets of Charlottesville by Antifa marchers on Saturday [8/11/2018].

Levin: The Obama admin interfered in TWO elections, and crickets.  Thursday [8/9/2018] on his nationally syndicated radio program, LevinTV host Mark Levin pointed out the hypocrisy of the Democrats' hysteria over foreign interference in American elections.  Levin reminded listeners that the State Department under the Obama administration used taxpayer dollars to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Israeli parliamentary election.

Left Working Furiously To Bury Feinstein Spy Story.  The revelation that California Senator Dianne Feinstein's office manager was a Chinese spy has generated a huge backlash, but not against the liberal Senator.  Instead of prompting a deeper media or government probe of the former Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence the experience of our friend Ben Weingarten suggests that there is a concerted DiFi Spyeffort to stifle the story and marginalize anyone who digs into it.

Why Is the Mainstream Media Ignoring the New Mexico Compound/Islam Story?  News broke this week that a deranged man, Siraj Wahhaj, was arrested for training a group of starving children at a filthy New Mexico compound how to carry out school shootings.  Still, despite the newsworthy aspects of the story, including a Muslim ringleader, children, and the potential for deadly school shootings, mainstream news outlets have covered it only briefly, if at all.  The story, which involved minors, has a particularly ideological angle that outlets seem uncomfortable lingering over for too long.  Not only were Siraj Wahhaj and his adult companions "heavily armed," but CBS reported, "Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe previously said adults at the compound were 'considered extremist of the Muslim belief.'  He did not elaborate, saying it was part of the investigation."

Father of New Mexico Islamist Compound Leader Is Linda Sarsour's 'Mentor'.  Siraj Ibn Wahhaj Jr., 40, of Clayton County, Georgia, was arrested along with his two sisters and two other adults last Friday in New Mexico on charges of felony child abuse for holding 11 starving children in an underground trailer hidden from view in a compound described as "overflowing" with weapons and ammunition.  But there is more to this story that is not appearing in the nightly news accounts we've all been following.  Nobody is talking about Wahhaj's well-connected father, Siraj Wahhaj Sr., a radical Brooklyn imam who is the spiritual adviser to Democratic Socialist and Bernie Sanders supporter Linda Sarsour.

ABC/CBS Refuse to Report Links to Muslim Extremism at New Mexico Compound.  The disturbing reports about the mysterious New Mexico compound were 11 starving children and one little boy's body were found grew even darker on Wednesday, after court documents were released alleging that the kids were being trained to carry out school shootings.  Despite those revelations, ABC's World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News still refused to report the connection to Muslim extremism by the five adults there.  The alleged training appeared to be the final straw for NBC because, up until that point, they were in lockstep with the rest of their liberal colleagues and omitted the extremism connection from their reports.  ABC seemed to be tired of reporting on the disturbing compound because they only gave it a news brief lasting only 15 seconds.

Media Omits New Mexico Compound Leader's Muslim Ties.  Media outlets are leaving out a key detail about the New Mexico compound leaders who were reportedly training young children to commit school shootings.  Eleven children were recently rescued from the "filthy" compound, which police say appears to be run by Siraj Wahhaj and Lucas Morten.  Wahhaj, the son of a prominent imam, was accused in court documents released Wednesday of training the children on the compound to commit school shootings.

Democrats have their own foreign espionage problem.  Imagine if it emerged that the Republican chairman of the House or Senate intelligence committee had a Russian spy working on their senate staff.  Think it would cause a political firestorm?  Well, this week we learned that Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., had a Chinese spy on her staff who worked for her for 20 years, who was listed as an "office director" on payroll records and served as her driver when she was in San Francisco, all while reporting to China's Ministry of State Security through China's San Francisco Consulate.  The reaction of the mainstream media?  Barely a peep.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein's Ties To China Go Way Deeper Than An Alleged Office Spy.  As media, intelligence agency, and political scrutiny of foreign meddling is seemingly at its apex, a story with big national security implications involving a high-ranking senator with access to America's most sensitive intelligence information has been hiding in plain sight.  The story involves China and the senior U.S. senator from California, and former chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Democrat Dianne Feinstein.  It was buried eight paragraphs into a recent Politico exposé on foreign efforts to infiltrate Silicon Valley, as a passing example of political espionage.

Outrageous: Media shrug off Feinstein spy scandal story.  Imagine for a minute if Representative Devin Nunes or Trey Gowdy or Matt Gaetz had employed a Russian spy for two decades.  Imagine further that this Republican solon were married to a spouse who had made a fortune investing in Russia.  Do you think such news would receive less than wall-to-wall coverage on CNN, MSNBC, or any of the other television news operations?  Yet, with very little media attention, the story has emerged that Senator Dianne Feinstein — of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, with access to the highest-level secrets — employed for two decades a spy who reported to China's Ministry of State Security (MSS).  When the news was first made public, buried paragraphs deep into a Politico story, hardly anyone noticed. [...] If Lowe is the spy, then a scandal was completely covered up for five years.  Let's see:  who was in charge of the FBI then, allowing a Democrat senator to fire a spy who had spied for twenty years?  That's right:  James Comey.  The rot is far deeper than we suspected.

Feinstein's Chinese Spy Identified — 'Russell Lowe' — Was Office Manager Not just a Driver — Feinstein Aide for 20 Years!  The Chinese spy who worked for Senator Dianne Feinstein was identified on Monday night [8/6/2018].  The Daily Caller reported the name of the spy tonight:  Russell Lowe.  Russell Lowe was Senator Feinsein's office manager.  Lowe is a Chinese-American who spent 20 years as the aide to Dianne Feinstein.  Lowe worked for Feinstein while she was chair of the US Senate Intelligence Committee.

Far Left Mobs Riot In 3 Major US Cities — NOT ONE Mainstream Outlet Reports on the Widespread Leftist Violence.  Far left violent Antifa mobs rioted in three Major US cities this past weekend.  Antifa mobs attacked police and conservatives in Portland, Providence and Berkeley.  Antifa cracked skulls and beat protesters and attacked grandmothers in Portland, Oregon on Saturday [8/4/2018].  Far left Antifa thugs destroyed property, beat conservatives and abused police in Providence, Rhode Island on Saturday.  And on Sunday far left Antifa mobs rioted and vandalized a Marine recruiting office in Berkeley, California.  NOT ONE national mainstream media outlet carried reports on left-wing violence in three major US cities this weekend.

Media Blackout: 13-Year-Old Girl was Decapitated by a Pair of Illegal Aliens in Alabama.  A preliminary hearing Thursday [7/12/2018] gave more information into a grisly double homicide in Madison County.  Mariah Lopez, a 13-year-old, was decapitated and her grandmother, Oralia Mendoza, was also killed.  Investigators now believe the case has connections to a drug cartel.  26 year-old Yoni Martinez Aguilar, one of the capital murder suspects, appeared before a judge on Thursday.

Freeing People from Left-Wing Lies.  Because real people don't tell big lies, they assume that others won't, either.  Hence, when Hitler, or the WaPo, repeats big lies over and over, people tend to end up believing them so long as they don't hear any contradictory voices.  That's why so many Americans think abortion is legal only in the first trimester or for the hard cases when in fact it's legal for any reason at any time during a pregnancy.  That's why so many Americans think Trump somehow colluded with Russia even though there is not a shred of evidence to indicate that.  That's why so few Americans know that Carter Page, the supposed Russian spy targeted by the FISA warrant, helped the FBI sting to capture Russian spies in 2013.  Clearly, the media have to work hard to hide that from the bubble people they're trying to fool.  That's why few Democratic voters know that the NYT has armed guards to protect its newsroom even as it says making it harder for average citizens to have guns is a good thing.

We Now Have a Direct Line From Russia To... The Media.  We're fretting about Facebook ads hoping to influence the election... yet this is a direct line from Russia to the mainstream media.  Look at all the trouble Russia went through to set up, staff, develop, finance, hide, spoof, and disguise their "Troll Farm" operation — all in the hopes of turning some Facebook heads amidst a million other ads and issues.  But with Steele and Fusion GPS, all it takes is a word to a Steele "source" and a week or so later it's being directly disseminated to the most influential segment of US society:  the national press. [...] It's unimaginable, but it happened.  The FBI allowed uncorroborated, foreign-sourced derogatory info on a presidential candidate, paid for by his opponent, to be used as credible evidence in a FISA hearing in order to gain access to the communications of a former campaign member.

Trump Gives $400,000 to Repair Military Cemeteries — Liberal Media Ignores the Story.  President Trump has donated his salary each quarter to different federal agencies.  President Donald Trump donated his first-quarter 2018 salary to the Department of Veterans Affairs.  Of course, the media has mostly ignored this generous move by the US president.

McCain Flunky Who Weaponized the IRS Now Controls All Internal DoJ/FBI Probes.  As corruption continues at the DoJ/FBI, it is important to know the name of an operative who is working behind the scenes in a powerful position.  That person is Henry Kerner.  Former McCain staffer, Henry Kerner, a deep state bureaucrat, has oversight over whistleblowers and internal probes.  This is no ordinary staffer.  This man hates conservatives.  Senator John McCain's Staff Director Henry Kerner urged the IRS' Steve Miller and Lois Lerner to target the tea party and any conservative groups until its "financially ruinous".  Henry Kerner is now in charge of all internal investigations in the government.  In his past positions, he was in investigative control during Obama's scandals.

The Crimes Committed By Illegals This Month You Probably Didn't Hear About.  The liberal media has been too busy breathlessly reporting on the Trump administration's "Zero Tolerance" policy to give attention to the heinous crimes committed by people who shouldn't be in this country in the first place.  Now of course these crimes go ignored or underreported because they don't fit the liberal agenda, and they also make the case for actually enforcing our immigration laws and building Trump's wall.

The Top 50 Liberal Media Bias Examples.  Probably the single worst example of liberal media bias is the media's steadfast refusal to accurately report the monstrous evils of the Soviet Union — even still to this day.  It didn't matter how many millions of Soviet citizens that Joseph Stalin and his successors murdered, it didn't matter how evil the Soviet Union was, the liberal media was not going to report about it.  The media even awarded itself a Pulitzer Prize through the lies of one Walter Duranty a New York Times columnist that was a shill for the murderous Soviet Union.

Barack Obama Says He's 'First American President From Kenya' In Foreign Speech.  Former President Barack H. Obama had a slip of the tongue during a speech in Kogelo, Kenya today [7/21/2018].  "Now, three years ago, I visited Kenya as the first sitting American President to come from Kenya," he said.  There was a pause and some awkward laughter from the crowd after he made his remark at the 5:49 mark of the 15-minute speech.

Nets Turn a Blind Eye to San Francisco Allowing Illegals to Vote.  Which would you say was more important, The Brady Bunch house going up for sale in Los Angeles or San Francisco giving illegal aliens the right to vote?  Well, for ABC's World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News, it was the former.  On Thursday [7/19/2018], San Francisco began a campaign to register illegal immigrants so they could vote in school board elections.  Instead of reporting on that controversial liberal policy, ABC and NBC chose to focus on frivolous topics like the Brady Bunch house.  ABC also fawned over Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen playing together at Madison Square Garden, while NBC touted Baltimore banning sugary drinks from kid's menus and parents fighting at Little League games.

The Media's Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wounds.  In 2002, Freddie [Cheaves] decided to strike a blow for black people against their one true enemy — the L.A. Times!  Now, the Times has a mile-wide bias in favor of black activists and their causes.  This is a newspaper that had no problem putting the lives of every woman in the city at risk by sitting on a story about an at-large black rapist-murderer.  This is a paper that hid the description of an at-large black serial everyone's lives at risk — all so as not to spread "negative images" of black men.  So what was Freddie's beef?  We may never know. [...] It turned out that Freddie had no bomb.  He gave himself up and was arrested, tried, and sent to state prison.  You'd think that if there's one crime the L.A. Times would report on thoroughly, it would be a crime committed on L.A. Times property.  Literally, a crime that happened in their own [...] building.  But no.  The Times purposely sat on any mention of Cheaves' accusations against the paper.  I say "purposely" because when the story first went online the day of the incident, reporter Anthony McCartney dutifully mentioned those details.  But within hours, "Not Me" from Family Circus had magically erased any mention of the "L.A. Times kill our black kids" rant.  I emailed McCartney that morning, and he was [angry] at the redaction.  The poor [fellow] obviously didn't realize the character of the people he worked for.  In all of the Times' subsequent coverage of Cheaves' arrest, trial, and conviction, the paper never once mentioned the substance of Cheaves' complaint.

Did The FBI Ignore Evidence That A 'Foreign Entity' Hacked Clinton's Emails?  Last week we learned that a "foreign entity" may have been secretly receiving Hillary Clinton's emails while she was Secretary of State, including many that contained classified information.  And that the FBI apparently ignored this information during its "investigation." The reaction by the press to this bombshell?  Crickets. [...] If what Gohmert is saying is true, and he repeatedly claims to have the evidence, the disinterest shown by the FBI at this revelation is simply astounding.

Obama's Meddling in Foreign Elections:  Six Examples.  While the media obsess over an alleged Russian conspiracy to collude with Donald Trump to affect America's 2016 presidential election, what about Obama's interference in the elections of other countries?  Most Americans have no idea that President Obama meddled in elections all over the world.  And apparently, the media decided there's no reason for Americans to know about this illegal activity. [...] The media is hysterical about a flimsy conspiracy theory that Russia colluded with Trump to steal the 2016 election but was mostly silent about Obama's efforts to control the outcome of elections in at least six countries during his tenure.

Media Silent As US Agrees To 'Full Implementation' of United Nations Gun Control Pact.  While the United States is typically set apart from other countries when it comes to gun laws, a recent conference with the United Nations has raised major red flags, as the U.S. agreed to enact "full implementation" of an international agreement on gun control that will violate Americans' constitutional rights by adding their personal information to a global database.  The Third Review Conference (RevCon) of the United Nations' Program of Action (PoA) on Small Arms and Light Weapons was held in New York last week with a 2018 agreement, which states that its purpose is to serve as "a renewed commitment to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects."

Illegal Entrants and Separating Family Members.  Ignored by most of the mass media and Trump haters are several relevant facts germane to this discussion.  First, during the Barack Obama and George W. Bush administrations, border guards serving our nation regularly arrested adults seeking illegal entry.  And, when those adults had children with them, the adults were separated from the youngsters while the lawbreakers were being held.  Then, adults and children were reunited.  Was there any uproar about this from left-leaning politicians and media during the previous administration?  Hardly a peep!

An Inconvenient Truth:  Greenhouse Gas Emissions Are Falling Under Trump.  Environmental data for 2017 are pouring in, and the results might not be what you'd expect.  In the United States, where President Trump has promised to unshackle the coal industry and to abandon an international climate change treaty, greenhouse-gas emissions fell last year and are expected to continue falling.  In Europe, where political leaders consider climate change an urgent priority, emissions rose last year.

The Editor says...
The volcanos and termites and cows don't care who the politicians are.  They will keep producing carbon dioxide day after day, no matter what laws are enacted.

Media Ignore Dem Staffer Found Guilty of Bank Fraud.  A Democratic aide is arrested while attempting to flee the country, ultimately pled guilty to felony charges, and an investigation found that he violated numerous standards of conduct imposed on House employees.  Sound like a news story?  In the two days since former Democratic House IT aide Imran Awan pleaded guilty to bank fraud, no broadcast news outlet has bothered to report on the story.  This lack of coverage reflects the media's historic disinterest in case.

More about Imran Awan.

Democrats are in a crisis and the media won't talk about it.  The Democratic Party is in an ongoing crisis, but most of the national media aren't interested.  They'd rather talk about the new "rock star," Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Coretz, and ignore that the party is up in flames.  Both Republican and Democratic voters are turning out in record numbers for their primary elections this year, according to analysis published this week by the Hill.  Democrats have a slight advantage by about a million votes, but that's only in primaries.

Media Blackout:  Miami Serial Killer Turns Out to Be an Illegal Alien.  A Honduran national in the United States illegally has been charged with killing two women in Miami over the past three months and dumping their bodies on the street, police announced Monday [6/18/2018].  Juan Carlos Hernandez-Caseres, 37, was arrested Saturday morning [6/23/2018] for the murders of Ann Farrin, 41, and Neidy Roche, 39.  Both women, police said, were prostitutes.

Report Alleges Obama Admin. Forced Psychotropic Drugs On Illegal Alien Kids To Calm Them Down.  Several days ago, LU's Ben Bowles uncovered a newly released report published by the ACLU claiming that "migrant children long have reported varied mistreatment in CBP custody, including sexual, physical, and verbal abuse, and the deprivation of basic needs such as food, water, and emergency medical care."  As Bowles noted in his last sentence, the abuses occurred between 2009 and 2014 — the Obama years — which explains why the mainstream media have still not touched the story.

Obama Separated 72,410 Children from Their Illegal Immigrant Parents in 2013.  You haven't seen this anywhere in the liberal news this week.

[#7] Obama and Democrats Incentivized This 'Family Separation.'  [#9] The ONLY Way to Unite Families Is to Release Them into America.  Obviously, we cannot have children living in adult detention centers.  Obviously, we cannot have adults living in child detention centers.  Therefore, the only way to "reunite" these families is to release these illegals into our country.  The media will not tell you this because the media do not want you to know that flooding America with non-citizens is their true agenda.  The rich and powerful love to exploit and abuse these individuals, as they can leverage their immigration status for illegally low wages, and politicians are salivating at the chance to bestow voting rights on them — and thus entrench their power.

Anyone Notice That Trump Is Now Tied With 'Popular' Obama On Job Approval?  President Trump can't get a break from negative press coverage, but somehow his approval rating continues to edge upward.  In fact, it's now tied with where the "extremely popular" President Obama was at this point in his first term.

Here Are The Photos Of Obama's Illegal Immigrant Detention Facilities The Media Won't Show You.  The media and political class become more and more outraged over the Trump administration's decision to detain and prosecute immigrants illegally crossing the border.  Lost in the debate is any acknowledgment that President Obama's administration also used detention facilities.  Current U.S. immigration laws, when enforced, have the consequence of temporarily separating adults who arrive with children into separate detention facilities in order to prosecute the adults.  The policy of prosecuting immigrants for crossing the border illegally has been in place for multiple administrations.  The Obama administration prosecuted half a million illegal immigrants and similarly separated families in the process.  So did the Bush administration.

15 Photos of Obama's Illegal Alien Child Detainees That Legacy Media Won't Show You.  Democrats aren't just manufacturing photos of fake news.  They're now resorting to using photos of Obama-era immigration policies — including separating children from adults — and claiming they're President Trump's.

Here Are Horrifying Photos Of Obama's Illegal Alien Facilities The Media Refuses To Show You.  The media and political class become more and more outraged over the Trump administration's decision to detain and prosecute immigrants illegally crossing the border.  Lost in the debate is any acknowledgment that President Obama's administration also used detention facilities.  Current U.S. immigration laws, when enforced, have the consequence of temporarily separating adults who arrive with children into separate detention facilities in order to prosecute the adults.

Democratic Lawmaker:  Obama Admin Kept Child Migrant Crisis 'Very Quiet'.  Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) claimed in an interview Saturday that the Obama administration tried to cover up the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the United States' southern border.  "It was kept very quiet under the Obama Administration.  There were large numbers of people coming in.  The Obama administration was trying to keep this quiet," the Texas Democrat told CNN's Fredricka Whitfield on Saturday [6/16/2018].

Mueller's Bumbling and Hysterical Special Counsel Team Is Getting Pummeled in Court — Media Is Ignoring All of This.  The attorneys representing Concord Management, one of the Russian Companies that the corrupt Mueller team accused of impacting the 2016 Presidential election, crushed the "Unlawfully Appointed Special Counsel" in court last week again.  They continue to make a laughing stock out of the Mueller team of misfit and conflicted attorneys.  Mueller's team of ignorant and misguided attorneys really have no chance.  They never expected anyone to take them to court on their fake Russian indictments and are certainly no match for the attorneys representing Concord Management.

Why Do They Hate Us?  It's bad enough to "censor" one's opponent, as the fake news does every minute with lies and omissions and outrageous claims.  The media were hoping Trump would fail at the Singapore summit.  Now that he has succeeded, that success is not being reported. [...] By every objective measure, the U.S. is becoming freer and more prosperous, and liberals hate it.  They are rooting for a recession in advance of the 2020 presidential election, even if ordinary Americans are harmed.

CNN, MSNBC Bury FBI Agents Getting Freebies From Reporters.  CNN and MSNBC buried the inspector general report's revelation that a number of FBI agents were receiving unauthorized free handouts, such as dinners and tickets, from reporters.  Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz noted in his report on the Clinton investigation, which was released Thursday, that his department found numerous instances in which FBI agents were improperly in contact with reporters and were receiving a number of free perks from their relationships.

News articles that conspicuously omit the race of the perpetrator.  For additional review at your convenience.

Restatement on Fozia Ali.  [Scroll down]  Fozia Ali served as the centerpiece of [Jeff] Baillon's story.  She stole $1.5 million from the Child Care Assistance Program over an 18-month period.  The media can't quibble with the facts of the Fozia Ali case.  Her guilty plea in federal court earlier this year told its own story, although the media somehow overlooked it.  Reviewing the facts of Ali's case I called and wrote the Minnesota Department of Human Services to ask one question:  "CCAP seems to be a program that is relatively easy to defraud.  How else to account for a case like Fozia Ali's and the multiplicity of similar cases?"  DHS responded:  "Any amount of fraud is too much.  DHS created the Office of the Inspector General in 2011 to address fraud, waste and abuse in public programs.  DHS has added resources and made recommendations to the Legislature to increase our ability to ensure public funds are used for those who need them."  DHS also instructed me not to attribute this nonresponse response to the person who provided it.

As Snopes 'Debunks' Child Trafficking Camp, 160 Kids as Young as 3 Rescued in Georgia.  A massive sting operation carried out by the FBI in metro Atlanta captured dozens of child traffickers and rescued 160 children who had been forced into sex slavery by their captors.  This news comes as Snopes and the other ostensible arbiters of truth distort information claiming that similar trafficking is taking place in Arizona.  Illustrating the massive scope of the sting, called Operation Safe Summer, it was a collaborative effort between the FBI and 38 other law enforcement agencies from six metro counties.

Ignoring the Samantha Power bombshell.  Of all the political stories from 2017, surely the most curious is this:  why is everyone ignoring the bombshell revelations from Samantha Power?  As you recall, Power was caught using her security clearance as a U.N. ambassador to review private conversations by U.S. citizens.  According to official records, she requested the unmasking of these private citizens over 260 times in 2016 (this was an election year).  She was brought before the House Intelligence Committee to explain her actions.  Her defense?  It wasn't me.  Someone else in the Obama White House did this, using her security clearance.  There are two possibilities:  that she is telling the truth, in which case someone else in the Obama administration is lying.  Or she is lying herself.

The Clintons will always have defenders in the media.  As long as there are journalists in the U.S., there will be apologists for Bill Clinton.  With the exception of the Obamas and the Kennedys, few in public life have enjoyed as much protection and support from the U.S. press as America's 42nd president.  Yes, the Clintons have endured unflattering coverage, but usually only when it's unavoidable.  It takes an FBI investigation or articles of impeachment to attract national media scrutiny.  And even then, many in the American press are perfectly content to dismiss, downplay, or explain away whatever legitimately awful or terrible thing the Clintons are caught saying or doing.

Indicted Muslim Congressional IT aide had two wives, kept one "like a slave".  The establishment media has steadfastly ignored this story, but it just keeps getting bigger.  Imran Awan and his family had access to all the emails and files of twenty percent of the Democrats in the House of Representatives.  His treatment of that data is highly suspicious.  And from the looks of this story and others, he is a doctrinaire Muslim with ties to Pakistan.  If Republicans and conservatives had been enabling and protecting Awan, this story would have been front-page international news for months.  As it is, we are likely never to discover the full extent of what happened.

Senate Intelligence Committee under pending DOJ investigation over leaks.  Brian Tau of the Wall Street Journal yesterday [6/6/2018] scooped the mainstream media, which prefers to ignore what he has uncovered about a potentially huge story:  that the Department Justice is in the early stages of an investigation into illegal leaks from the Senate Intelligence Committee. [...] So far as Google is telling us, no other major news source has picked up the story.

Nothing to See Here, Just a Child-Trafficking Camp on Land Owned by a Clinton Foundation Donor.  A group of veterans has made a disturbing discovery in the remote desert of Arizona, near our still wall-less southern border, that has shaken its members to the core.  If you watch any videos posted by Veterans on Patrol, you will notice that they look shell-shocked, as if they just finished clearing a neighborhood in Fallujah circa 2003.  Their emotions are very raw, and the situation is only compounded by the noncommittal, uncaring shrugs they've received from law enforcement after reporting their findings to them.  A word of caution:  This story is not for the weak of heart.

What Happened to Jill Stein's Recount Millions?  Shortly after the 2016 election, Jill Stein raised more than $7 million from shell-shocked liberals eager to pursue a swing-state recount.  Two years later, the U.S. Green Party's last candidate for president is still spending that money.  Ongoing litigation, travel costs, and staff salaries are also likely to eat up whatever is left, meaning those who donated to Stein are unlikely to receive a once-promised chance to vote on how the post-recount money would be spent.  Nor have donors been given much of a window into how Stein is actually spending their donations.

More about Jill Stein.

[Redacted] Arrested for [Redacted] Outside [Redacted]: Leeds Crown Court Issues Media Ban.  The Leeds Crown Court has issued a UK media ban following the arrest of well-known activist and citizen journalist [redacted] outside [redacted]. The reporting restriction, which requires on all publications within the United Kingdom to cease any mention of the details of the arrest or court proceedings of [redacted], was issued Friday afternoon [5/25/2018].

Orwell's Nightmare:  Articles About Tommy Robinson's Arrest Rapidly Scrubbed From the Internet.  Articles about the arrest and subsequent imprisonment of independent journalist and activist Tommy Robinson are being rapidly scrubbed from the internet after the British government put restrictions in place banning any reporting on the matter.

48 Hours Later, Media Still Keeps Dems' Total Collapse in Reuters Poll a Secret.  On Monday [5/21/2018], Reuters/Ipsos announced that the Democratic Party's strong lead on the generic ballot question, which had remained stable for most of 2018, had rapidly collapsed over the prior week.  The #BlueWave narrative — the media's all-but-concluded assumption that Democrats would retake the House of Representatives from the GOP in November — has largely been based on the state of the generic ballot poll.  So you might assume the media tasked with covering the 2018 midterm elections would immediately react to a sudden shift in the most important metric available for predicting the most important outcome of those elections.

Media Goes Ballistic As It Scrambles To Protect Obama From Growing Spygate Scandal.  The Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign, infiltrated the campaign, colluded with foreign powers to attack the campaign, then worked to damage a newly elected president and ultimately overthrow an entire administration.  Those collective actions are now known as "Spygate" and the Establishment Media is desperate to insulate Mr. Obama from being directly implicated in what is quickly turning into the single greatest political scandal in U.S. history.

Happening Now:  FBI Investigating Terror in Your State.  The U.S. is currently investigating some 2,000 potential or suspected terrorists.

Press hypocrisy of the day.  Obama wiretapped President Donald Trump.  The press does not care.  Obama planted a spy in President Trump's campaign.  The press does not care.  But President Trump's Twitter account isn't secure.  That's a five alarm fire.

The Media See Only One Collusion Story.  Liberals and journalists used to be appalled at the abuses of power by J. Edgar Hoover's FBI and the CIA against Martin Luther King and others.  More recently, while many liberals deplored Edward Snowden's leaks revealing how extensive U.S.-government snooping has become, they also agreed that the information he revealed showed the need for reforms.  Indeed, former CBS News journalist Sharyl Atkisson has detailed how U.S. intelligence agencies have abused the privacy of Americans.  She lists ten examples of such abuses and concludes that, to this day, intelligence and Justice Department officials sometimes "operate not just in direct defiance of their superiors, but of the Congress, the courts and the very laws of the land as well."  But those aren't the issues the media are looking to follow.

Stefan Halper is obviously a bigger scandal than the media want to admit.  The swiftness with which the media have brushed aside Stefan Halper's role in the Russia investigation should be a sign that he's certainly more important than they're admitting.  Halper was identified by the Daily Caller's Chuck Ross last weekend as the professor who worked in some still-unknown capacity to inform the FBI on the Trump campaign in 2016 as part of the agency's probe of Russia's election meddling.  Halper met with at least three of then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign advisers, and records show he was paid nearly $300,000 by the Defense Department in September 2016.

Greensboro, NC fire that killed 5 children exposes more concerns with US refugee program.  Did you hear the news about the five children from the DR Congo who died in an apartment fire in Greensboro, North Carolina just over a week ago?  Probably not because stories showing the unhappy side of refugee resettlement are rarely seen outside the immediate locale.

Clinton Campaign Busted Funneling $150,000 to Company Solely Owned by Hillary.  Hillary Clinton's personal company received a $150,000 payment (from 2016 campaign funds).  The MSM is all over this one!  Oh, wait.  No, they're not.

Clinton Campaign Funneled $150,000 To Hillary Clinton's Personal Company.  Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign has transferred nearly $150,000 of leftover campaign funds to a company she solely owns in the months following her election defeat, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).  The Clinton campaign has paid $149,457 to ZFS Holdings LLC, since May 2017 for the purpose of "rent," FEC filings show, but the campaign has left it unclear if it's paying at, above or below fair market value for the office space it's renting.  Also, the rent payments to ZFS were sent to the same address as Rorrie Gregorio, Clinton's personal financial manager.

Something Very Important Happened Yesterday That Has The D.C. Establishment Very Concerned.  A district court judge ordered the release of the Weiner laptop.  This is the same laptop the James Comey FBI buried under mountains of sealed "protection" to keep secret.  The laptop that had the entire Obama intelligence apparatus (and the Clinton Machine) in a panic shortly before the 2016 Election.  All the major media outlets knew about this development — but said nothing.  The reason why is simple.  They fear who might be implicated.

Mueller Year One:  The Real Heroes in Journalism.  The reality is that there are only a handful of reporters bravely bucking the media's status quo and conducting real investigative journalism to expose what, quite possibly, is the biggest political scandal in U.S. history:  How top officials in an outgoing administration colluded with a presidential candidate's campaign and a major political party for the purpose of discrediting the rival presidential candidate and then stage a soft coup against him after he won.  Out of thousands of reporters in the United States, fewer than a dozen journalists have dared to cover the ways in which the world's most powerful law enforcement and intelligence apparatus leveraged its authority to try and destroy Trump's candidacy, then his presidency.

Breaking stories overshadow terrific jobs report.  Last Tuesday [5/8/2018], there was more breaking news than I can remember in a long time — which overshadowed a great jobs report that could provide a brighter future for every American.  Lost in the barrage of tawdry news [...] was an absolutely terrific Job Openings and Labor Turnover (JOLT) report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  The report said there are 6.6 million job openings — the highest number of openings ever recorded — and far more positions than there are Americans on unemployment.

Big news that the MSM downplays and ignores.  Iraq, the U.S., and Turkey worked together to capture five ISIS leaders.  They did not kill them with drones, which allowed them to get intelligence that allowed them to kill other ISIS members. [...] According to Newsbusters:  ["]CBS Evening News was the only member of the big three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) to even mention it that evening.  The national evening newscasts of Spanish-language Univision and Telemundo also kept quiet about it.["]

Obama May Finally Be Investigated After All These Years!  Barack Obama is under investigation and while you may not be hearing about it from the mainstream media, it is indeed the truth. [...] The Barack Obama Foundation is under audit after it was discovered that the foundation's accountant, a small CPA firm in Chicago, has been reprimanded by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board in Washington, D.C. for having filed an audit considered deficient according to industry accepted accounting standards.

Did you hear about the violent teen flash mob that took over Chicago's fanciest shopping area Saturday?  The end result of indoctrination in government schools and mass media that teaches "urban youths" that American society is racist, corrupt, unfair, and unworthy of compliance is the crumbling of civil order.  When a substantial group of young males (the segment of society most prone to acting out with violence) think they have no stake in the continuation of existing social and property relations, they are able to impose anarchy in local areas.  When enough people think and feel this way, the forces of order — police, and in extremis the National Guard — can be overwhelmed and powerless to stop the disorder.  This nightmare scenario is developing step by step.  The rise of social media enables the organization of what are now called "flash mobs" that can descend on targets and cause chaos.  Sometimes, targets are chosen for the lucrative looting opportunities.  That appears to be what happened last Saturday night [5/4/2018] on Chicago's Magnificent Mile, at the very heart of upscale shopping, dining, and residential life, the Water Tower Place, a multistory shopping mall at the base of a 74-story tower.

Report:  Documents Show Obama Admin Interfered In Israeli Election.  Newly unearthed documents from The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) have shown the Obama administration interfered in the 2015 Israeli elections in an attempt to defeat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, then misled Congress about it.  President Obama's State Department provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to a pair of non-profit groups who, in turn, funneled the money to political groups trying to unseat Netanyahu.

Media indifference to Hillary's money laundering.  The media have never shown much interest in Hillary and the DNC laundering over $10 million in campaign funds through a law firm to hide the purpose of creating a fake dossier.  Instead, the media are [excited] about a porn star and a $130,000 payment.  The $130,000 payment appears to be pure blackmail about an unverified seven-hour rendezvous that occurred in 2006.  Why did Stephanie Clifford, who went by the name Stormy Daniels when having sex on camera for money, wait until less than one month before the election to come forward?  Do people think that if Stormy Daniels had much information, it would have cost only $130,000?  Can the media think of any other porn star who has been treated as pure as the driven snow by the media because of one unsubstantiated claim of a seven-hour rendezvous twelve years ago?  I want to know if Stormy claimed the $130,000 as income on her 2016 tax return.  If not, she is a felon, but no journalist seems to be interested.

Students Across the Country Walk Out of School in Defense of Gun Rights.  Called "Stand for the Second," the demonstration was a response to the March 14 National School Walkout in support of gun control.  The idea was hatched by New Mexico high school senior Will Riley.  Riley told USA Today:  "I'm watching the news, and I see they're saying, 'We have to do something about this.  We have to enact some sort of gun control legislation because this is what the kids are asking for.'  And I'm thinking, 'I'm not asking for that.'  I look at my friends, and I think, 'They're not asking for that.'"  Riley says his event was for pro-Second Amendment students "who feel that they're being misrepresented by the media."

Either Hillary Clinton Broke Federal Election Laws or Our Election Laws Are Broken.  With so much attention being paid in recent weeks to former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Donald Trump, Stormy Daniels and others, one of the most interesting cases of a candidate potentially breaking federal law during the 2016 election has largely been forgotten by the press and, it seems, law enforcement officials:  In 2016, Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign possibly violated federal election law — or, at the very least, the spirit of it.

Hillary's Money Laundering Scheme.  While it obsesses over an aging porn star, Russians, discredited ex-FBI officials, and pimple-faced gun-grabbers, the mainstream media has been ignoring an explosive federal lawsuit unearthing a huge illegal money-laundering conspiracy said to have been masterminded last election cycle by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign.  It is yet another facet of the plot by which Clinton, possibly in league with then-President Obama, broke the law in an attempt to rig the election.  Throughout his agonizingly long presidency, Obama serially abused his powers as the nation's Chief Executive to undermine his political opponents.

Here's One Global Warming Study Nobody Wants You To See.  A new study published in a peer-reviewed journal finds that climate models exaggerate the global warming from CO2 emissions by as much as 45%.  If these findings hold true, it's huge news.  No wonder the mainstream press is ignoring it.  In the study, authors Nic Lewis and Judith Curry looked at actual temperature records and compared them with climate change computer models.  What they found is that the planet has shown itself to be far less sensitive to increases in CO2 than the climate models say.  As a result, they say, the planet will warm less than the models predict, even if we continue pumping CO2 into the atmosphere.

Time to End the Resistance of the Swamp The president and his trusted advisers are either being investigated or threatened with investigation.  The best public servants appointed are flooded with death threats, and neither the FBI nor the DOJ does anything about that.  Scott Pruitt and Ajit Pai are the first names that come to mind.  These threats are backed by actions, such as the mass murder attempt in which Representative Scalise was injured.  Violence against lesser known persons standing in the way of the Democratic Party agenda is not reported by the mainstream media.

Leftist Propaganda Thwarts Unity.  The Americans who listen to the Washington Post, the New York Times, and all the networks are being systematically lied to. [...] One key aspect of the propaganda machine is that Republicans are always shown in a bad light, and Democratic scandals are minimized.  We all remember the MSM trying to make us think Bill Clinton was impeached because of his sex scandals and not because he lied under oath in order to minimize his risk of having to pay a settlement for sexually harassing an Arkansas government employee.  Similarly, a Democratic senator was on trial for seven weeks recently for corruption, and the MSM ignored it.  When a Republican senator was on trial years ago, there was extensive coverage.

The mainstream media took no notice:
FEC Records Indicate Hillary Campaign Illegally Laundered $84 Million.  The press continues to feed the dying Russia collusion conspiracy theory, spending Friday's news cycle regurgitating Democrat talking points from the just-filed Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act lawsuit against the Trump campaign, WikiLeaks, and Russia.  Yet the mainstream media took no notice of last week's federal court filing that exposes an $84 million money-laundering conspiracy the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign executed during the 2016 presidential election in violation of federal campaign-finance law.

The $100 Million Parkland Boondoggle Broward Schools Doesn't Want You to Hear.  Kenneth Preston is another side of the Parkland shooting story.  The hushed-up school-safety side. [...] All he's done since the Valentine's Day serial shooting of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is spend more than 100 hours searching through thousands of pages of local government documents that most taxpayers would never dream of reading.  He's spoken with dozens of school and law enforcement officials, parents of victims and members of the media.  The kind of investigation you would expect only from a well-trained special prosecutor.  The story first was reported by DML News but avoided by most mainstream media who chose instead to expend their resources on the Washington anti-guns march.  Immediately after the story became public, Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie tweeted out a message calling it "fake news."  What Preston alleges is that the Broward school system, superintendent and School Board members in particular, are directly responsible for shooter Nikolas Cruz and the student and teacher deaths not only by their liberal policies, but by holding back money directly intended to address school safety.

ABC News Cuts Comey Criticism of Obama's Actions During Clinton Investigation.  In the broadcast of its interview with former FBI Director James Comey, ABC News did not air Comey's strong criticism of President Obama for twice publically stating that Hillary Clinton's private email server did not endanger national security despite an ongoing investigation.  In the unaired remarks, Comey went so far as to describe Obama's comments as creating the impression that the Justice Department was biased with regard to Clinton.  He charged Obama's remarks "created this drumbeat that the Obama Justice Department, the fix is in because the president has told them what result they should reach."

How Much Did The Media Cover Pro-Life Student Walkout Vs.  Gun Control Walkout?  Last week, pro-life students across the country walked out of their classrooms in protest of the war on unborn children.  But you wouldn't know it because the media stonewalled them, unlike the pro-gun control students who received wall-to-wall glowing coverage during their anti-gun walkouts.  According to LifeSiteNews, during the protest last Wednesday, the "three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) never once mentioned the pro-life walkout during their news shows on the night of the event."  Compare that to the more than 10 minutes that networks devoted to the pro-gun control National School Walkout Day.  In total, the networks covered the March for Our Lives 13 times more than the pro-life March for Life.

The Media's War On Freedom Of The Press.  In '08, the New York Times published an op-ed by Obama, but rejected McCain's response.  It just published an editorial titled, "Watch Out, Ted Cruz.  Beto is Coming" which appears to have no purpose other than to help Beto O'Rourke raise money from New York Times readers. [...] "In one instance, The Enquirer bought but did not publish a story about an alleged extramarital relationship years earlier with the presidential candidate," the Times sniffs.  It's not unprecedented for a paper to have damaging material about a politician without publishing it.  Just ask the Los Angeles Times about the vault they're keeping Obama's Khalidi tape in.  Or ask the Washington Post about its embargo of the photo of Obama posing with Nation of Islam hate group leader Louis Farrakhan at a CBC event.

Texan couple's enormous stash of weapons including AR-15s and grenades is found in Boston hotel room.  A Texan couple have been arrested in Boston after police found a haul of weapons inside their hotel room including AR-15 and AK-47 rifles along with parking tickets which suggest they were surveilling the site of Saturday's March for Our Lives protest.  Francho Bradley, 59, and Adrianne Jennings, 40, were arrested at the Marriott Residence Inn in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, on Saturday after he called police to report someone breaking into his room.  He told police he was in his Jeep where he had surveillance video feed from his hotel room linked up to a laptop in his car but that it had suddenly cut out.  He said he worried someone had broken into the room and gotten their hands on his one weapon which he said he had hidden in a drawer.

Weapons cache couple remain held.  A Texas man who made a series of outlandish claims when he and his wife were caught with a large cache of weapons and military-style gear will continue to be held without bail while an investigation into what he was doing here continues.  Francho Bradley, 59, and Adrianne Jennings, 40, both of Frisco, Texas, have been held without bail since Monday [3/26/2018], when they were arraigned on 45 felony charges in connection with the discovery of the weapons cache.

Texas man who allegedly had weapons stockpile in Boston-area hotel says he was on a classified mission.  A Texas man who was arrested Sunday [3/25/2018] after police said they found a weapons stockpile that included an AK-47, AR-15 and bump stock in his hotel room told investigators that he was on a classified government mission, The Lowell Sun reported.  Francho S. Bradley, 59, and Adrianne D. Jennings, 40, were taken into custody after Bradley called police to the hotel room to report that someone was breaking in.  Police responded and found the weapons, the report said.

Texas Army Vet, Arrested With Massive Weapons Cache, Claims It's For A 'Classified' Mission.  A 59-year-old Army veteran arrested in a Massachusetts hotel with dozens of weapons claims that he assembled his arsenal as part of a "classified" mission for an unnamed government agency, according to law enforcement.  Texas native Francho Bradley and partner Adrianne Jennings were arrested at the Marriott Residence Inn in Tewksbury, Mass., on March 24th with a massive assortment of firearms and military-style equipment.  Bradley claimed he had transported the stockpile to Massachusetts from Texas "because he needed them with him for his mission," according to a police report obtained by The Lowell Sun.

The Editor says...
From the four articles above, it looks like this story was well publicized.  The story of Francho Bradley and Adrianne Jennings made a brief splash in the national headlines, and promptly went down the Media Memory Hole.  I can't find anything that had been said about the case in the last two weeks.  Were they two crazy people with lots of guns, or were they working for somebody else?  Crazy people generally don't have the monetary resources to accumulate that many weapons and transport them across the country.  If they were freelance gun dealers, they probably wouldn't have made claims about being "on a classified government mission."

How $37 Million from the Clinton Foundation Disappeared in Baltimore.  Why did the Clinton Foundation send a $37 million grant for the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund in 2010 to a Baltimore post office box when the CBHF told federal tax authorities that its only office that year was in Washington, D.C.?  For the rest of us, the answers to that and many other questions posed by those who wonder why investigations into obvious and rampant frauds involving Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton and their purported foundation never go anywhere are complex.  But they're worth following if you care about combating charitable fraud.

Boeing's Role in the Iran Nuclear Deal Must Be Investigated.  [Scroll down]  We see that Russia has accelerated its program of designing jets for Boeing.  There are multiple design centers in Russia.  Further, Boeing is deeply involved with the design of jetliners in both Russia and Ukraine.  In fact, recently a number of Ukrainian designers of jets were reportedly unhappy with working in Moscow and transferred back to become part of a huge design center in Ukraine.  Boeing kept a low profile after this move to Ukraine in order not to offend Russia, which is a big supplier of titanium needed for the production of jetliners.  But get this:  the Boeing company in Ukraine is a wholly owned subsidiary of two U.S. Boeing companies!  Boeing has a global penetration that is truly incredible.

The Biggest Demonstration in DC Has Nothing to Do With Guns.  Jeff Sessions — who so far has been almost entirely leak-proof — has quietly opened four investigations in the past eight months, almost all of which were ignored by the media.  DOJ has, at the moment,
  •   An investigation into Hillary's emails.
  •   An investigation into the Clinton Family Foundation, in Little Rock.  With a prosecutor.
  •   An investigation into U1, which has already brought indictments.
  •   An investigation into the FISA abuse.
The last investigation, announced two weeks ago with the prosecutor, John Huber, named last week, has empaneled a grand jury (this is separate from either of Mueller's).  Huber has as much power as an independent counsel, and is working closely with Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who is no fan of the Deep State.

Air Force Academy Releases Report on Hate Crime Hoax:  Media Goes AWOL.  After hundreds of fake "hate crimes" have been exposed as hoaxes, the Fake News media continues to give lavish coverage to each new claim, then ignores the truth when the stories prove false.

Trump is Now More Popular Than Obama.  Media hostility to President Trump has been unremitting since he secured the Republican nomination.  It didn't stop, or even slow down, with his inauguration.  The many achievements of his young administration haven't given the press pause, either:  his coverage continues to be just about 100% negative.  What, then, to make of the fact that Rasmussen Reports, which conducts the only daily presidential approval poll of likely voters, finds Trump at 50% approval and 49% disapproval?  Those are better numbers than Barack Obama had in the same survey at the same point in his administration, and the press boosted Obama almost as relentlessly as it denigrates Trump.

Injured Victim Suing FBI — for Allowing Terrorist Attack to Happen.  It's perhaps one of the biggest, and most underreported, stories of the last few years.  It involves two different allegations, the first being that the FBI allowed a terrorist attack to happen.  More damning still, the second is that the FBI actually encouraged it.  And now a man injured in the attack is suing the bureau.  The incident was the jihadist attack on the "Draw Mohammed" free-speech event in Garland, Texas, in 2015.  The plaintiff is the security guard wounded in the gunfire, Bruce Joiner, who charges that an FBI agent "solicited, encouraged, directed and aided members of ISIS in planning and carrying out the... attack," court documents relate.

Anti-Gun "National School Walkout" Duped Students, Families.  Before the events, organizers and establishment propaganda outlets often painted the so-called National School Walkout on March 14 as an event to honor the victims of last month's school shooting in Parkland, Florida.  But the real agenda — at least of the establishment billionaires, leftists, and globalists behind the operation — was to promote more infringements on the unalienable right of Americans to keep and bear arms.  In fact, one of the leading student voices endlessly hyped by CNN even called publicly for "Revolution."  And thousands of naive students across America were duped into participating by well-funded political operatives with no compunctions about exploiting children to advance an anti-constitutional agenda.  The truth and the facts, meanwhile — including the counter-protests by pro-gun students — were carefully concealed.

Why is the Media Suddenly So Interested in the EPA?  For eight years, President Obama's two EPA administrators — Lisa Jackson and Gina McCarthy — received very little scrutiny from major news organizations.  Reporters and opinion writers overlooked their misconduct at the EPA:  excessive travel costs; blatant disregard of congressional oversight and lying to Congress; deleted texts and phony email accounts; colluding with activists who sought to use the agency to impose their costly, ideological agenda.

Was the FBI's Investigation of Hillary Clinton a 'Sham'?  This should be big news.  In fact, this should have led the evening news on Sunday night, and there should be some kind of media investigation of this planned today, but there wasn't, and there won't be.  The reason this story didn't lead the news yesterday, and that the media won't be investigating it today (or ever) is because it doesn't fit the liberal narrative.  Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appeared on the Fox News Channel Sunday morning to continue his call for a second special counsel to investigate the FBI's behavior during the 2016 elections.

Washington Post Asks Why Andrew McCabe Was Fired — Then Leaves Out The Reason Why Andrew McCabe Was Fired.  So why exactly did Andrew McCabe get fired?  Many words and paragraphs follow but none of them state the obvious reason — one that everyone in the Establishment Media knows but have been working together to hide from the American people:  The FBI's own independent Office of Professional Accountability recommended Andrew McCabe be fired — immediately.  McCabe was fired from the FBI because the FBI said he should be fired.  It's that simple.

France:  Toward Total Submission to Islam, Destruction of Free Speech.  The French government and the French justice system claim to treat all religions equally, but they treat Islam as if it were "more equal than others" — able to enjoy special privileges.  Those who criticize Islam — or who just show the results of Islamic terrorism — are victims of fierce prosecution, while hate-filled, racist organizations are never touched. [...] President Macron recently said he wants a law against "fake news".  If the law is adopted, all online magazines in France that do not broadcast what the government defines as "true news" could be subject to immediate government suspension.  If they are located outside France, access to them would be blocked.  Islamic online magazines and websites are not on the list of "fake news" providers.  What online magazines and websites top the list?  Those that question Islam.

The Editor says...
Special farewell message to our readers, if any, in France:  Perhaps you should have resisted the Muslims while you had the chance.  Now you are no longer free even to criticize Islam.  Soon, you will will be forced to submit to Islamic law.  After that, you will be forced to either convert to Islam or die.  If I were in your position, I'd flee the country, while that's still possible.

Establishment Media Ignores All of the Young NO WALKOUT School Patriots Who Think School is for Learning, Not Far-Left Indoctrination.  The Mainstream Media largely created the anti-gun rights walkouts being staged today so it's no surprise they are covering them both breathlessly and lovingly as thousands of school kids snicker and preen for their own social media accounts while accomplishing little beyond being allowed to skip class.  Meanwhile, there are thousands of other schools and millions of other students who feel school is for learning, not taxpayer-funded protest movements.  The media isn't covering them though because it doesn't fit their narrative.

Here's How the Democrats Plan to Impeach Trump.  Recently, the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee released a memo officially stating that there is no evidence of any collusion between Donald Trump and Russian intelligence during the 2016 presidential election.  Of course, you might not have heard this news if you have been punishing yourself by watching or reading any of the mainstream news.  For its part, the mainstream media continues to prop up the improbable narrative that Donald Trump is a Russian agent of influence who is out to corrupt our democracy in Vladimir Putin's name.

White South African farmers in fear for their lives as the government prepares to seize their land.  The government of Australia is offering to fast track visas for white South African farmers who are under siege on their own land.  It's a story that's not getting much play in the US — for obvious reasons.  A group representing Afrikanners, the white minority claims that 82 white farmers were murdered just last year with 432 incidents of violence.  The government is challenging those numbers and even whites admit that white farmers are not the only victims of violent crime in rural areas.  But at least some white farmers are living in fear and they are blaming the bill passed by parliament last month that will allow the government to sieze white owned land without compensation.  Many white farmers are choosing to leave and Australia is trying to expedite "humanitarian" visas.

Nets Give Less than a Minute to House Committee's 'No Collusion' Findings.  On Monday, the House Intelligence Committee closed its inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, much to the chagrin of the liberal media.  The committee confirmed that the Russians were indeed trying to cause chaos in the election, claimed they weren't out to help candidate Donald Trump specifically and that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.  But during their evening broadcasts, ABC and CBS downplayed the findings while NBC ignored them.  CBS Evening News only gave 31 seconds to the House committee's findings.

The Vegas Massacre Exposé: What Really Happened?  Vegas has video cameras everywhere.  After NYC terror attacks we had videos on TV within hours.  In this case, in hotels covered by hundreds of [cameras], 6 months later we've never seen one video of the killer walking through the hotel.  Why? [...] Police say they found child porn on Paddock's computer.  But it was announced after the shooting, Paddock's hard drive was gone.  Removed from his computer.  Nowhere to be found.  So how did police find child porn?  Not one journalist questioned this development.  No one ever asked, "Did the hard drive miraculous re-appear?" Police never said a thing.  First it was gone.  Then they found child porn.  Strange.  But if in fact child porn was found (on another computer removed from his home, or office) wouldn't it make sense to investigate the connection to ISIS and the Philippines, where child sex trafficking is a primary mode of funding for Islamic terror groups?

CNN's Bizarre Blackout On Democrats' Farrakhan Scandal.  CNN has refused to inform its audience of a growing scandal tying prominent Democratic politicians and activists to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious racist and anti-Semite.  At least eight Democrats are known to have met with Farrakhan, who routinely calls Jews "satanic" and has said that white people "deserve to die."  Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, misled the public for years about his relationship with Farrakhan, new reporting has shown and The Washington Post has acknowledged.  Illinois Rep. Danny Davis, a Democrat, defended Farrakhan as an "outstanding human being" and admitted to having a personal relationship with him in a pair of interviews with this reporter.

President Trump's Economic Approach Toward National Security Wins — U.S. Media Ignore.  The corporate media are hopelessly deficient in their coverage and explanations of how strategic objectives for national security are being delivered through a geopolitical Trump Doctrine via economic leverage.  The results are stunningly effective, yet few have noticed and even fewer seem willing to articulate; perhaps their inability is because they simply just don't get it.

Even when Trump is right, mainstream media downplays it rather than be honest.  President Trump's foreign policy is defying the media so much, even they are finally sounding positive over his "stunning" peace moves with North Korea.  But journalists haven't liked the president's criticisms of Europe.  President Trump has been repeatedly critical of how Europe has handled its refugee crisis — pointing out the reality of no-go zones and specifically discussing a spike in immigrant-related crime in Sweden.  This week he was proven at least somewhat correct on both fronts.

Citizens need secret decoder rings when reading about immigrant crimes.  How many times have you seen headlines like (for example):  Minneapolis "man" arrested for _____? [...] We have to play the name game and try to figure out who the perps are — from which country they came.  Sometimes there is a photo to help you play the game.  But, rarely does the mainstream media admit his (or her) home country and almost never immigration status.

The Russian Collusion Story the Media Ignores.  Last week, a congressional committee released a jarring and persuasive report on Russian meddling in American politics.  Despite a media feeding frenzy over anything tangentially connected to questions of Russian interference, this report went largely unnoticed.  The U.S. House Science, Space, and Technology Committee's "Russia's Social Media Meddling in U.S. Energy Markets" details Russian funding of U.S. environmental groups, which used resources to protest the process of fracking and the existence of the Keystone pipeline.  Russia, the world's largest oil producer, figures to watch the U.S. surpass it within five years.  Killing fracking and the pipeline stand as two ways for Russia to avert this fate.  Rep. Lamar Smith, the chairman of the committee, describes the "mechanics of Russia's scheme to use nonprofit entities to influence U.S. public policy and public opinion" with regard to oil and gas and the fracking process.

The Media Decision To Ignore Democrat Ties To Farrakhan Reveals Toxic Bias.  What would the establishment media reaction be if tens of members of Congress met with one of America's most notorious racists and anti-Semites and refused to denounce him?  Or if the leaders of one of America's hottest social movements embraced him?  If the bigot in question is Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan — who has blamed Jews for the 9/11 attacks, said white people "deserve to die" and praised Adolf Hitler — the answer seems to be ... not much, at least not when those embracing him are Democrats and progressives.

The World's Energy Superpower:  Us.  It is ironic that our myopic press obsesses on trivialities like Russians posting on Facebook, while largely ignoring the geopolitical implications of the policies that are freeing up U.S. energy production.

Meet the Conservative Parkland Massacre Survivor the Media Has Largely Ignored.  With his parents' permission, I agreed to meet him.  He has a lot to say but can't help but wonder aloud if many in the mainstream media have any interest in listening.  Some of his schoolmates have gained prominence as television mainstays in the aftermath of the killings, their opinions validated with verified social media statuses, amassing millions of followers in the process.  Kashuv is just as much a Parkland survivor as now-familiar names like David Hogg and Cameron Kasky, yet his views have only garnered limited attention.

Establishment Press Ignoring Schumer's Race-Based Objection to Trump Judicial Nominee.  Wednesday, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer opposed the nomination of A. Marvin Quattlebaum Jr. as a South Carolina federal district judge.  The nominee was confirmed by a 69-28 vote.  Schumer's objection, cloaked as complaining about "the overall lack of diversity in President Trump's (judicial) selections":  Quattlebaum is white.  Any senator opposing a non-white nominee based on skin color would have received saturation media coverage within minutes, but the establishment press is virtually ignoring Schumer's remarks.

Prescription for Death.  Take a look at a package insert for any prescription drug, and you will find a long list of side-effects, with everything from night sweats to "homicidal ideation."  That's a technical term meaning "you're gonna wanna kill somebody."  And if you are taking multiple drugs, these side-effects do not add up; they multiply. [...] After every mass shooting in the U.S., the non-mainstream media look into the prescription drugs used by the perpetrator, where possible.  Judging from these investigations, it appears there may be a link between antidepressant use and extreme violent outbursts.  Suspicious bloggers slam the mainstream media for not investigating this link, citing billions in pharmaceutical advertising dollars the media don't want to endanger.

The Editor says...
This story is kept quiet because a huge percentage of the advertising revenue on television comes from companies that make prescription drugs.  A smaller percentage comes from legal firms who urge you to sue the pharmaceutical companies if you took one of several drugs -- there's a new one every week -- and experienced adverse side effects.

An Open Letter to David Hogg.  One of the most vociferous agitators is a survivor of the shooting in Parkland.  He has taken to speaking for all the students of the school and has pushed himself forward to be a strident voice for the victims.  Although he has been all over the airwaves from CNN and MSNBC to late night shows to do nothing more than to force on citizens the progressive socialist talking points of gun control.  There have been many [...] other survivors of the Parkland shooting who disagree with his anti-gun position, and they, like everyone else who disagrees with him have been shouted down and ridiculed for disagreeing with him.

During the financial crisis, Nancy Pelosi somehow tripled her net worth to $100 million.  If only our society had some people we used to call "investigative journalists".  They might be able to figure out how then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi mysteriously tripled her net worth during the height of the financial crisis.

Potentially Deadly Mass Shooting Thwarted, Ignored by MSM.  Mainstream media (MSM) bias was never more clearly displayed than when it ignored what could have been one of the deadliest mass shootings in American history in favor of the Florida school shooting.  It happened the same day — Valentine's Day — in Amarillo, Texas, when an armed street person entered the Faith City Mission and took between 100 and 150 worshipers hostage.  Joshua Len Jones, age 35, who had been attending the morning service, left the building, retrieved a handgun, reentered the building, and threatened worshipers with it[.]  The MSM was no doubt alerted by local media as soon as the event took place.  But what unfolded would not serve their anti-gun agenda and be the headline in the evening news.  "Man with nasty hateful dangerous probably illegal firearm shoots and kills dozens" would scream the headline.  One Clay Murdock, a student at the mission, refused to run or hide.  Instead, he chose to run toward danger, tackling Jones with the help of other church security people.  As far as the MSM was concerned, that was the end of the story:  no shooting, no one killed or injured, a nothing burger, move on, looking for something else to cover.

Put Comey on the hot seat.  ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, a former Democratic operative has — surprise — landed an interview with fired FBI Director James Comey to plug his new book.  Here are a few questions the former Clintonite should, but won't, ask: [...]

The media is ignoring ties between the Clinton campaign and Russians.  While the media is filled with stories and theories about Trump's interactions — or lack thereof — with Russia, not enough attention is being paid to revelations about pro-Hillary Clinton operatives' use of opposition research that ostensibly came from Russia.  With the Democrats unable to govern and lacking much of an affirmative agenda, they want Russia to be the story.  Yet with each passing day, more seems to be revealed that not only undercuts the absolute faith Democrats have in the Trump-Russia collusion narrative but also demonstrates just how much they did and how far they were willing to go to establish an improper or embarrassing link between Trump and Russia.

The Media Stopped Reporting The Russia Collusion Story Because They Helped Create It.  Half the country wants to know why the press won't cover the growing scandal now implicating the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice, and threatening to reach the State Department, Central Intelligence Agency, and perhaps even the Obama White House.  After all, the release last week of a less-redacted version of Sens. Charles Grassley and Lindsey Graham's January 4 letter showed that the FBI secured a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to search the communications of a Trump campaign adviser based on a piece of opposition research paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.  The Fourth Amendment rights of an American citizen were violated to allow one political party to spy on another.

This Is What Happens to the North Korean Cheerleaders Who Mess Up.  As the media's glorification of North Korea's brutal dictatorial family continues, another North Korean presence at the Olympics has caught the attention of the media in the form of the cheerleaders.  On the outset, the cheerleaders seem to be a group of attractive women dancing and singing in unison.  There's definitely a charm to the energy and fun they seem to bring.  Like anything from North Korea, however, the showy positivity masks something far darker.  Understanding the Kim regime means recognizing that these girls are performing like their lives depend on it — because they do, as well as the lives of their family.  If for any reason they do anything that reflects badly upon the Kim family, they'll be imprisoned, and being imprisoned in North Korea for slighting the Kim family usually is accompanied by gruesome torture and death.

FBI, Hillary scandals could have a ripple effect on Wall Street.  Again, if you are investing in US financial markets, keep a close eye on developments regarding the FBI and the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation.  The markets don't like chaos, and that's what we are headed for.  There have been a lot of major developments recently, although most big media organizations are ignoring them.  They will soon regret that.

WSJ Columnist:  Why is the Media Ignoring the Real Bombshell FISA Memo?  Three possibilities:  (1) The GOP hyped the Nunes memo, which quickly became the center of this whole firestorm — replete with counter-memos, FBI objections, etc.  The press followed the spotlight.  (2) As we've been saying, there are so many complex pieces of this larger puzzle, following the plot is difficult.  It's not just news consumers wondering, "which memo is this now?" — it's many of the people trying to cover this drama, too.  The document in question here is a second, less redacted, version of a Senate memo that few people have even heard of.  (3) The Senate memo, produced by non-bomb-throwers Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham, is substantially more disruptive to the Democrats' narrative than the Nunes document.  And the press generally prefers Democratic narratives to Republican ones because most journalists are liberals.

The Enigma Man — E.W. "Bill" Priestap.  Bill Priestap is the FBI Asst. Director in charge of all counterintelligence operations.  Priestap was FBI Agent Peter Strzok's boss; he is also at the epicenter of the story surrounding every action taken by the FBI in the Clinton investigation and the Trump campaign investigation.  Bill Priestap was copied on every email of consequence including the writing of the Clinton exoneration talking points delivered by FBI Director James Comey.  Priestap is the central figure on the FBI side of both Clinton and Trump operations.  "Bill" is mentioned in hundreds of text messages sent by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.  In short, Bill is everywhere — except where you would most likely expect to find him, in media discussion.

How The Media Buried Two Huge FBI Stories Yesterday.  For more than a year and a half, the media have gone all-in on reporting every possible angle of President Donald Trump's alleged collusion with Russia.  No story update has been too small, no encounter with a Russian too inconsequential, and no anonymous source too sketchy to generate outsize coverage and histrionic claims from major media.  But as the Russian collusion story disintegrates, another interesting story ascends.  Investigations by multiple congressional committees as well as an investigation by the inspector general of the Department of Justice have shown irregularities in the handling of the most politically sensitive probes in recent memory:  the investigation into Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified information while secretary of State and the investigation into the Trump campaign's alleged nefarious ties with Russia to meddle in a U.S. election.

Media knew dossier was Fake News a year ago.  First, the media knew Obama's administration did indeed wiretap the Trump campaign.  Reporters for the New York Times had access to transcripts of the unconstitutional eavesdropping, and disclosed this on the Times front page on January 20, 2017 — an inauguration gift designed and timed to undermine and de-legitimize President Trump and his administration.  This was Watergate on Steroids, as I wrote on March 5, 2017.  Second, the media knew that the dossier was in reality Hillary's opposition research by British "spy" Christopher Steele.  "September 2016:  In court filings in London, where he is being sued, Steele says that he briefed reporters at several news outlets following instructions from Fusion GPS[, ...] the Daily Caller reported on October 28, 2017.

Muslim gets life for killing Denver transit guard who was also a pastor.  Despite the evidence, the media refuses to headline their articles with the truth.  That's why they are rightfully called fake news.  CBS and many others titled it "Ex-soldier" instead of "Muslim jihadist."

Treason.  In one year, Trump eviscerated ISIS, successfully fronted up Putin and North Korea, pulled manufacturing back to America, got nearly a quarter million Americans back in work, reduced black and Hispanic American unemployment to levels never before seen, re-budgeted the armed forces with an increase of $56 billion, slashed job-choking regulations left right and centre, put the country on an unprecedented 4% pa growth curve, rocketed the Dow Jones on to successive record-breaking highs, gave the American worker a huge tax cut and most importantly put some chest-swelling pride back into saying you're an American and one who no longer feels obliged to go around apologising to the rest of the world about it.  How was that little lot covered by the mainstream media?  It wasn't, it was ignored, as the FISA memo was. [...] Instead, it's become critical to report how many scoops of ice cream Trump had when treating his extended family to a private dinner to celebrate winning the presidency, or whether his wife is wearing high heels.

Mark Levin, the Nunes memo, and the Praetorian Guard media.  It is an indisputable fact that the Obama administration obtained a FISA court warrant and surveilled the Trump campaign and members of the Trump transition team.  We now know, thanks to the work of Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., on the House Intelligence Committee, that not only was a FISA warrant obtained to spy on the Trump campaign during the election, but also that the warrant was obtained with unsubstantiated information provided by politically motivated actors and that the shady source of the information was concealed from the court.  The memorandum put together by Rep. Nunes summarizing his committee investigation's findings shows that the FBI and the DOJ misrepresented to the FISA court the grounds for a warrant to surveil Trump foreign policy advisor Carter Page.

ABC, NBC, CBS ignore and downplay missing Strzok-Page texts.  President Donald Trump, Republican lawmakers and political watchdogs are furious that the FBI failed to preserve five months of text messages between FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok — but the news divisions at CBS, NBC and ABC have largely ignored the story.  Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has said the missing texts are relevant because Page and Strzok, who were romantically involved at the time, are being accused of political bias because they frequently exchanged anti-Trump text messages prior to the 2016 election and during key moments of Mueller's probe — of which Page and Strzok were part.

President Trump Wins 'Medal of Life' From Int'l Human Rights Group.  Don't bother looking for this in the Mainstream Media, amigos.  Best I can do is link it in Spanish.  The notice was written by Honorary President of the International Center for the Defense of Human Life Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet.  The Center, known by its Spanish initials CIDEVIDA, is headquartered in Valladolid, Spain.  But most of you have never heard of Dr. Biscet, have you, amigos?  And yet he's human rights activist and former political prisoner who suffered tortures Nelson Mandela never even envisioned in his worst nightmares from his (relative) country club incarceration in apartheid South Africa.

Media Blackout As Democrats Publicly Struggle With Benefits Of GOP Tax Cut.  The establishment media have saved Democrats from embarrassment by refusing to cover their struggling attempts to explain away the positive economic effects the Republican tax bill delivered for the working class.  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other leading Democrats predicted the tax bill would be a disaster for the working class — "Armageddon" is how Pelosi described it — only to see more than three million American workers receive bonuses and pay raises as a result of the GOP tax cuts.  Additionally, 90 percent of workers are expected to see an increase in take-home pay in 2018.

Fake News distracts from Trump's triumph in Davos.  The Islamic State is evaporating.  Kim Jong Un is making nice.  The world economy is booming.  "Attendees held up their cellphones and swarmed toward Mr. Trump as he entered the conference hall.  Asked by reporters if he hoped to be received warmly at the forum, Mr. Trump gestured to the crowd following him and said, 'I already am.  Take a look — you tell me,'" the Washington Times reported.

Obama's Meeting With Farrakhan.  Two years before Barack Obama announced his candidacy for President of the United States, he met with the leader of a hate group who had praised Hitler and declared that the Jews, "can't say 'Never Again' to God, because when he puts you in the ovens, you're there forever."  The previous year, Obama had launched his national profile with a DNC speech proclaiming, "There's not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there's the United States of America."  And there he was, smiling alongside Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, the largest black separatist organization in the country, whose theology claimed that white people were genetically engineered devils who were due to be destroyed by flying saucers.  Also posing with Farrakhan and Obama were Mustapha Farrakhan, Joshua Farrakhan and Leonard Farrakhan Muhammad, his security chief and son, his other son, and his chief of staff and son-in-law.

Day 3: Media Maintains Obama-Farrakhan Photo Embargo.  What if major stories broke and the media just chose not to report them.  Or to bury them somewhere on the back page.  That hasn't been a hypothetical question for a long time.  The media buried the Holocaust to protect the FDR administration.  It buried JFK's scandals and even pushed post-assassination conspiracy theories.  It buried Bill Clinton's scandals.  But in the Obama era, it didn't just bury them, it single-mindedly pursued narratives and counter-narratives without regard to what was actually happening.  That's why you'll see roughly 2 billion Mueller stories in the media (half of them from Jeff Bezos' Washington Post) and 3 days in, almost zero reporting on the release of a photo featuring Obama with Farrakhan.  The Nation of Islam leader has praised Hitler and runs a violent racist hate group.  The kind of organization even most lefties find indefensible.  Yet the media blackout continues.


Journalist kept quiet about photo of Obama with Nation of Islam leader.  A long-hidden photo of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama posing at a congressional caucus meeting with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan was revealed Thursday — roughly 13 years after it was taken.  The journalist who snapped the pair at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting in 2005, Askia Muhammad, told the Trice Edney News Wire that he "gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy" out of concern that it could have "made a difference" and damaged Obama's political future.  "After the nomination was secured and all the way up until the inauguration; then for eight years after he was president, it was kept under cover," Muhammad said.  "It absolutely would have made a difference."

The picture of Obama and the Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that a journalist kept secret for 13 years.  A journalist has revealed a 13-year-old photo of Barack Obama posing with the Nation of Islam's leader that was kept under wraps in order to protect the former president's career.  Askia Muhammad snapped the photo of Obama smiling alongside Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan during a Congressional Black Caucus meeting in 2005.  Muhammad, who revealed the photo on Thursday, told the Trice Edney News Wire that he 'gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy' out of concern that it could have 'made a difference' and damaged Obama's political future.

Barry and Louie
Seven Quotes On Jews, Gays And White People From Louis Farrakhan, Tied To Obama.  A new photo of former President Barack Obama and hate group leader Louis Farrakhan has emerged, showing that Obama was more friendly with Farrakhan than he let on publicly.  Farrakhan, leader of the black nationalist group Nation of Islam, has a decades-long track record of spouting hate against Jews, gays and white people.  His bigotry has even been catalogued by the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center.  His extremism was well-documented in 2005, when newly elected Illinois Sen. Barack Obama met with Farrakhan at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting and took a smiling photo with him.

'Journalist' Reveals 2005 Photo of Obama and Racist Farrakhan, Kept Secret to Protect Obama's Career.  Now they tell us.  More than a year after President Obama left office, a journalist is finally revealing a photograph he deliberately hid from the American public for well over a decade, for the explicit purpose of shielding Obama from political backlash.

The Editor says...
What else did the press cover up for Obama's benefit?  Lots of stuff.  Like this and this and this and this and this and this and this.

The Photo That Never Saw The Light of Day:  Obama With Farrakhan In 2005.  A journalist announced last week that he will publish a photograph of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama (D) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that he took in 2005 at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting, but did not make public because he believed it would have "made a difference" to Obama's political future.  The photographer, Askia Muhammad, told the Trice Edney News Wire that he "gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy."  "But after the nomination was secured and all the way up until the inauguration; then for eight years after he was President, it was kept under cover," Muhammad said.

Tucker Carlson Drops A Truth Bomb On The Mainstream Media.  Tucker Carlson shamed the mainstream media for no longer serving as watchdogs and for failing to speak truth to power, Wednesday [1/24/2018] on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight."  Carlson discussed a classified memo detailing surveillance practices used by former President Barack Obama's administration, to spy on President Donald Trump's campaign.  Carlson accused liberals of using Russia as an excuse to keep the memo secret and said the press has been complicit in hiding the truth.

Nets Censor Revelation FBI Lost 400 Texts.  There were disturbing revelations out of the FBI over the weekend when it was made public that the Bureau had somehow lost roughly 400 text messages between an anti-Trump investigator and a lawyer he was romantically involved with.  Since then, there have been calls from Republican members of Congress for another special counsel to investigate the FBI's shady handling of the Clinton e-mail and Russia investigations.  But despite this bombshell news, the three major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have been dead silent.  During their Monday evening [1/22/2018] newscasts, there was not a single second dedicated to bringing up this highly damaging development.  Instead of reporting on the FBI, ABC's World News Tonight gushed about the Super Bowl, CBS Evening News reported that Minnie Mouse got her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and NBC Nightly News fawned over yet another royal wedding in the U.K.

Illegal Aliens Are Quietly Being Redistributed Across United States on Private Flights.  Illegal aliens are quietly being redistributed across the country on private flights paid for by US taxpayers.  The illegal aliens were seen boarding planes this past week in Harlington, Texas and Tucson, Arizona.

If an Obama scandal is revealed but the media ignores it.  [Scroll down]  Two different universes.  Which gets me to the Nunes memo.  The memo, which is highly classified, purportedly contains Rep. Devin Nunes' conclusions, based upon viewing other classified material, that the Obama administration, the Hillary campaign, and the DNC, were up to their eyeballs in highly illegal surveillance activity directed against Donald Trump, all in an effort to destroy his candidacy and place Hillary in the White House.  If true, the Obama scandal instantly turns Watergate into Nothing-gate, and reveals an attack on America's representative democracy the likes of which we've never seen before.  In my conservative world (blogs, emails, and conservative Facebook groups), everyone is talking about the Nunes memo's potential finally to reveal a vast Obama scandal.  In my Progressive world, though, no one is talking about it at all.  You know why?  They don't know about it.  The mainstream media is either ignoring the Nunes memo or completely downplaying it.

Illegal Aliens Quietly Being Relocated Throughout U.S. on Commercial Flights.  Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week.  In the last few days alone, groups of illegal aliens boarded planes at airports in Texas and Arizona accompanied by a taxpayer-funded government escort in civilian clothes to avoid drawing attention.  The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis.  The second left from Tucson International Airport and arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, federal sources said.  In both locations the illegal aliens appeared to be in their late teens and were escorted by a Health and Human Services (HHS) chaperone.  Judicial Watch reached out to HHS for comment but did not hear back from the agency.  The illegal aliens wear red HHS wrist bands and receive "the gold glove treatment," according to a veteran federal official, who added that the undocumented immigrants get priority boarding ahead of all other passengers, including law enforcement personnel.  "It is shameful and dangerous," said a seasoned Homeland Security agent with direct knowledge of the secret operations.

The link between Obama's departure and your increasing wealth.  If you are like me, your retirement account rose substantially in value during 2017.  The end of the stubborn economic lag of the Obama years is a signal event affecting the life every American.  It's not just the stock market that's up, but GDP and job growth as well.  Presumably because it would make the Trump administration look good, the mainstream media have given this development relatively little attention — as illustrated by the New York Times' non-treatment in its 2017 year in review.  (The Denver Post's Dec. 31 print edition review provides another example.)  When the mainstream media have discussed the economy outside their business pages, they sometimes have done so only to belittle the progress made.

Minority Unemployment Is At Record Lows Under Trump.  While economists and Wall Street analysts described December's jobs report as "below consensus" or even "disappointing," there was nothing disappointing for one broad group of Americans:  minorities.  For them, the Trump economy is delivering, big time.

Is there a single Democrat anywhere who [cares] about America?  President Obama's use of the Executive Branch to crush the opposition party is without precedent.  And yet, the media and prominent Democrats have been either silent on these affairs, or have simply tarred them as standard political antics.  They are not.  They are diabolical and criminal efforts to undermine the American system of government.

DC Press Corps Knew for a Full Year Hillary Clinton was Behind [the] Russia Dossier [and] Hid It From the Public.  The DC press corps and prominent Washington journalists knew Hillary Clinton paid for the dossier as early as September of 2016 yet they suppressed the information and acted as if the salacious document was legit intel.  The liberal mainstream media withheld this from the American public for a year!  This is why Americans loathe the mainstream media.  They are nothing more than a mouthpiece for the Democrats and Deep State hacks.

Iran Starts Killing Protesters, ABC Ignores While CBS and NBC Downplay.  The anti-government protests targeting government and religious leaders sweeping across Iran took a bloody turn Sunday [12/31/2017] as overnight reports surfaces of two protestors being killed at the hands of the corrupt government.  Disgustingly, the deaths didn't trigger much air on the three major American networks.  ABC's Good Morning America had a blackout of the deaths and protests all together while NBC only found 24 seconds for them.  CBS finally discovered the protests, as they continued into their fourth day, dedicating a meager 16 seconds.  Instead of allowing serious time for the brutal murders of Iranian civilians and the protests, whose marchers have been chanting "Death to Rouhani" and "We don't want an Islamic republic," NBC's Sunday Today ran a four minute and 37 seconds long highlight reel of the media slamming and smearing President Trump from this past year.

Iran's protests are powerful and real.  Why are mainstream media outlets so hesitant to report on them?  For all the squabbling that social media platforms are notorious for, their relevance to the media landscape plays an important role in times of protest.  This was evident with Black Lives Matter, among other movements.  It's been evident for the past three days in Iran, where thousands have taken to streets and public squares calling for an end to the hardline conservative regime of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.  The question that needs to be asked right now is why traditional mainstream media outlets — grandstanding over their importance in this new, bold era of fact-checking and truth-telling — have largely ignored a blossoming revolution.

U.S. woman stabbed 14 times by Somali migrant, media go dark.  [Scroll down]  Police have called the case unusual for the level of brutality just to get a woman's purse, leading some to wonder if the assailant didn't want more than just a purse.  The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the city's largest newspaper, has been AWOL on the story.  The newspaper's on-duty news editor, Maria Reeve, did not return WND's calls Tuesday to inquire about why it went dark on such a brutal, unprovoked attack on a defenseless, unarmed woman walking home from work.  Other media, such as the Southwest Journal, have reported on the crime but left out the assailant's full description as a Somali migrant.  Only one media outlet, local ABC News affiliate KSTP, included in its on-air coverage the fact that the victim described her assailant as Somali, but the station's website article failed to mention that fact.

Obama Was Dealing Drugs With Terrorists And The Media Says NOTHING.  It's sickening beyond belief.  A sitting president purposely facilitates an international drug ring run by anti-American terrorists in order to help secure nuclear capabilities for the #1 state sponsor of anti-American terrorism on the planet — Iran.  In a more sane world, the story would be getting 24/7 wall-to-wall coverage.  Not here.  Not now.  Barack Obama was and remains the pet of the globalist corporatists and so they are working hard to protect him from the kind of blowback he most certainly deserves.  Some in the media are calling foul — but not nearly enough.

Somali stabs Minneapolis woman 14 times as she walked home from work.  Morgan Evenson was walking home in downtown Minneapolis about 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 13 when a black man got out of his car, chased her down, tackled her and repeatedly thrust a four-inch blade into her flailing body.  The 26-year-old computer-store clerk frantically fought back, kicking, scratching and screaming for help.  At some point, neighbors heard her screams and came to her aid.  Her attacker — described as a Somali man in his early 20s, about 5-foot-7 with a slight build and wearing grey stone-washed jeans — ran away.  Evenson was left bleeding on the curb with 14 stab wounds on her arms, neck and back.  Her kidney was lacerated.  She was lucky to survive the attack. [...] "You had to get all the way through that KSTP [broadcast only] report to find out he's Somali, and it was never mentioned in the other media outlets at all."

The Ongoing Federal Investigation Into Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama That The Media Continues To Ignore.  Robert Mueller continues to undergo a fake investigation into fake allegations of collusion between the then-Trump campaign and the Russian government.  After 18 months no such evidence has come forward to substantiate the claims by the far left.  In fact, the only real evidence of collusion appears to be that of the Obama FBI attempting to interfere in the 2016 election.  Ah, but quietly marching alongside the Mueller investigation is an equally far-reaching (and much more legitimate) investigation into how the Obama government handled the Clinton email investigation.  It has been this investigation which is now countering the falsehoods of the Trump-Russia narrative and is acting as a truthful counterbalance to the Mueller-led anti-Trump Deep State operation — which is why the Establishment Media has been largely ignoring it.

Did You Hear About the Racist Black Guy Who Shot Up Two Police Stations?  Remember last year when a black guy threatened to kill all white people and then shot up two police stations in Indianapolis?  Yeah, me neither and it's pretty much my job to notice these things.  Apparently it wasn't considered big news in a year when radical black terrorists were ambushing and killing police officers, so the liberal media can be excused for burying this story.  I saw this story on RTV6 today and it blew my mind that I never heard a peep about it last year: [...] You would think that when a black guy left notes threatening to kill white people and then shot up a couple of police stations just as few month later, that it might be considered a serious news story.  That doesn't appear to be the case.

Man who shot at IMPD headquarters in 2016 sentenced to 37 years.  The man who shot at two Indianapolis police headquarters in 2016 was sentenced for his crimes Friday [12/22/2017].  Damoine Wilcoxson, 22, was sentenced to 37 years [on] Friday morning.  Earlier this month, he was found guilty for shooting at two Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department headquarters in 2016.  His three-day trial ended on Dec. 4, 2017, where he was found guilty of attempted murder and criminal recklessness in connection with shootings.  The first shooting happened Oct. 4, 2016, at the IMPD Northwest District Headquarters.

What The Liberal Media Is Not Telling You:  The FBI's Rank and File Love POTUS Trump.  The FBI has been run by Deep State elitists for far too long.  It's rank and file know this.  Donald Trump is working to restore the once-great FBI back to its former glory.  The globalist media knows this as well — and has been burying that truth.  Here is video to counter the media's narrative.  POTUS Trump receives a remarkably enthusiastic standing ovation from new FBI graduates.  They love this man and are hoping he can help to repair what is an institution that has veered off into anti-Americanism for far too long.

Media Blackout on Obama's Hezbollah Scandal Revives the Iran-Deal 'Echo Chamber'.  [Scroll down]  [T]he media echo chamber devoted to defending Obama's appeasement of Iran that he cultivated is still with us.  The evidence for that was on display this week in the aftermath of Politico's scoop about the way the Obama administration blocked federal investigations of Hezbollah's drug-running, money-laundering, and terror operations during the Iran-deal negotiations.  Josh Meyer's three-part series was based on interviews with Drug Enforcement Administration personnel and other well-placed sources within the federal government who worked on Project Cassandra.  Meyer built a strong case that showed that efforts to halt the regular traffic of cash, drugs, and terrorists between Beirut, Tehran, and Venezuela was quashed by orders from the top of the Obama administration.

A deafening media silence on the Obama-Hezbollah scandal.  Politico published a jaw-dropping, meticulously sourced investigative piece this week detailing how the Obama administration had secretly undermined US law enforcement agency efforts to shut down an international drug-trafficking ring run by the terror group Hezbollah.  The effort was part of a wider push by the administration to placate Iran and ensure the signing of the nuclear deal.  Now swap out "Trump" for "Obama" and "Russia" for "Iran" and imagine the eruption these revelations would generate.  Because, by any conceivable journalistic standard, this scandal should've triggered widespread coverage and been plastered on front pages across the country.  By any historic standard, the scandal should elicit outrage regarding the corrosion of governing norms from pundits and editorial boards.  Yet, as it turns out, there's an exceptionally good chance most of your neighbors and colleagues haven't heard anything about it.

Obama:  Worse Than Chamberlain?  For although numerous media channels did swoop down on the report that, in order to secure some agreement with Tehran over its nuclear program, the Obama White House deliberately strove to obstruct an extensive Drug Enforcement Administration operation, codenamed "Project Cassandra," targeting the Iran-backed terror group, Hezbollah — it appears to have been studiously ignored by several major Obamaphilic outlets.  Indeed, Google as I might, I could find nary a reference — even the most oblique or remote — in The New York Times to the almost 15,000-word investigation.  Or in the Los Angeles Times.  Or The Washington Post.  Or on CNN.  Or MSNBCThe Wall Street Journal, on the other hand, did address the matter.

CONFIRMED: Proof Found Obama Purposefully Let Cocaine Into US.  The mainstream media will continue to defend Barack Obama's legacy despite the constant misdeeds.  To them, 44 was a savior.  The truth?  He was had no clue what he was doing.

Surprise: NYT and WaPo Totally Ignore FBI Agents' Anti-Trump 'Insurance Policy' Texts.  [Scroll down]  The pressing question is what Strzok meant by his "can't take that risk" and "insurance policy" missives, and what specifically was discussed in McCabe's office.  McCarthy believes those texts crossed an important threshold separating "political banter" from "tainted law enforcement," and are more sigiifciant and concerning than bellyaching about Trump being "loathsome" and sundry other insults that grabbed headlines.  Perhaps there are explanations for the "insurance" musings that are satisfactory and unconcerning.  Perhaps there is documented evidence about what took place at the private meeting in question.  But these developments represent legitimate concerns for people to raise.  Alas, many Americans are likely totally unaware that those concerns even exist — let alone are valid — because some major news outlets have completely ignored them.

Fusion GPS Admits Nellie Ohr [was] Hired to Probe Trump.  Married to now demoted DOJ hack and Rod Rosenstein's right hand man, Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr has been officially confirmed to have been hired by Fusion GPS to probe Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign.  Yet, this doesn't seem to be getting much media coverage outside of Fox News.

A Transparent Lack of Media Curiosity — Why Was Judge Rudolph Contreras Recused From Flynn Case?  Last Thursday it was announced that U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras was mysteriously recused from the Special Counsel case against General Mike Flynn, five days after Judge Contreras accepting the initial pleading.  No explanation as to 'why'? [...] The recusal angle is transparently missing from any follow-up by media; and apparently the judicial cat also has stolen the tongue of congressional curiosity.

CNN: False Reporting is the New Normal.  Remember when, under the presidency of Barack Obama, we were told that high unemployment rates and sluggish growth of the economy was the new normal?  We were told that there was nothing that could be done about it.  Two terms of the brilliant blind lashing out against the problems we faced as a nation by the messiah, Obama, could not fix it, so it could not be fixed.  Get used to it, misery is now life as we know it.  In less than a year under the Donald J. Trump administration's efforts, the current 4.1% unemployment rate is the lowest we've seen in 17 years.  Unemployment claims have fallen to the lowest level in 43 years.  The economy has been improving at a rate greater than what was accomplished during any of the years Obama was president, and with tax cuts on the horizon, a sudden boost to the economy is ready to roar.  Meanwhile, in mainstream-media-land, there have been none of these reports.

Comedians mocking liberal leaders get scant play from Trump-ridiculing media.  Don't look now, but some liberal late-night TV shows are starting to target progressive icons.  It started late last month when Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," excoriated Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts for claiming to be of American Indian descent.  More recently, HBO talker John Oliver repeatedly blasted actor Dustin Hoffman for reports that the two-time Oscar winner sexually harassed a female co-star during the 1985 CBS adaptation of "Death of a Salesman."  The media's coverage of the two events, though, proved radically different.

Suspicions Growing Over Death of Journalist Probing NSA and CIA Abuses.  Weeks after the fiery death of investigative journalist Michael Hastings, who was probing abuses by the CIA and NSA and had recently informed others that he was being investigated by federal authorities, suspicions about his mysterious car crash are still swirling around the Internet.  While police officially ruled the death an "accident," serious questions are still surfacing — even in the establishment media and among prominent officials.  Based on e-mails Hastings sent out shortly before he died about working on a "big story" and needing to go "off the radar," it has become clear that he was worried, too. [...] It would not be the first time that a prominent journalist taking on the establishment has died under suspicious circumstances.  Conservative-leaning alternative-media giant Andrew Breitbart, for example, promised to reveal information that would destroy the Obama machine.  Shortly before the highly anticipated release, the 43-year-old died of "heart failure."  Two months later, the county coroner who conducted Breitbart's autopsy was poisoned.  Before that, investigative journalist Gary Webb, who exposed CIA cocaine trafficking, supposedly "committed suicide" with two bullets to the head after publicly expressing his concerns that he would be killed.  The list could go on.

Murder of Border Patrol Agent was No Accident.  One border agent is dead and another was injured.  Yet authorities tried to call the incident an accident.  Now, the FBI investigation reveals the truth.  The death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez was no accident.  Culberson County Sheriff Oscar Carillo told local media outlets that the agents were injured in a car crash.  Rumors flew for weeks, creating a scandal reminiscent of the Obama era.  First, the Sheriff speculated that the agents "fell into the culvert."  Later, he hypothesized that they were side-swiped by the mirror of a tractor trailer.  Of course, those claims made the FBI sit up and take notice.  Clearly, neither of those explanations make sense.

Hillary Clinton's Russia collusion doesn't interest the media.  If the media are defining "collusion" as President Trump's team being willing to accept potentially beneficial information from Russia in the 2016 election, all future cable news analysis on the issue should include a disclaimer:  Hillary Clinton's campaign did precisely the same thing and more!  There is no real consensus about what any collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia would have entailed (which is helpful for Democrats and self-interest-driven Republicans like Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in maintaining a scandalous fog over the White House) but news reports typically discuss it with ominous references to campaign advisers and aides who had any form of contact with Russian officials.

You won't hear much about this in the media, but Donald Trump is deporting Somali Muslim illegal/criminal aliens.  There are tens of thousands, maybe more, Somali Muslim freeloaders/jihadists mostly living off welfare in Minnesotastan and the Trump Administration has already begin deporting many of them, with 5,000 more scheduled.

Economics Prof: $21,000,000,000,000 Missing From Federal Budget.  On the dark side of the moon stand vast palaces made completely of gold, where federal bureaucrats plan to retire.  Or maybe they constructed a city of platinum under a giant dome at the bottom of the sea.  Either might explain what they have done with the missing $21 trillion.

Six Crucial Points The Mainstream Media Has Overlooked In The Kate Steinle Case.  [Kate] Steinle's killer, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, has just been found Not Guilty in San Francisco.  There could be no more dramatic proof that the entire political class — politicians, law enforcement bureaucrats, Main Stream Media propagandists, even the resultant racially-divided juries — simply cannot be trusted to do anything about America's gathering immigration disaster.

The Mainstream Media Doesn't Deserve Our Respect or Our Trust.  The mainstream liberal media is primarily composed of stumblebum leftist jerks who want all the glory and respect due a caste of objective, moral truth-seekers, yet who don't want to do the hard work of actually being objective or moral or seeking the truth. [...] Remember, to our intrepid media, news is only news if it helps the liberal narrative.  If it doesn't, it's not news.  It's not anything.  It's un-news.  Like the stock market boom.  Like wiping out the ISIS caliphate.  Like Mueller's manifest conflicts of interest.  Un-news.  Remember, half the job of the mainstream media is generating metaphorical tumbleweeds.

Did Brits Plant the Hillary Bomb?  [Scroll down]  The BBC, which occasionally resorts to telling the truth, once ran a wonderful comedy show called Yes, Minister, with the running gag of the elected minister trying to manipulate his purely appointed swamp department, only to be told time and time again by the chief bureaucrat that, alas, it couldn't be done.  Yes, Minister is probably on the web today, and it's worth watching, because it served as a great warning that elections in the U.K. meant nothing anymore.  No matter who was elected, the swamp would prevail.  Now, the BBC is the original swamp propaganda department, always running talking points from the left and, these days, from the forces of jihad.  Things got so bad at the BBC swamp that it protected serial child abuser Jimmy Savile, who ran the most popular children's program on the BBC, in spite of the fact that he abused hundreds of children.  The U.K. media reported the Jimmy Savile perversion only after he died.  The whole thing was shocking beyond belief, but it was consistent with jihad penetration of Europe, which we now see everywhere.  Jimmy Savile was obviously protected by the police, the intelligence services, and the upper ranks of the BBC itself.  Parents who complained to the cops received no help whatsoever.

CBS, NBC Skip $100,000 to Dem Congressman's Harassment Victims.  While the pressure mounted on Democratic harassers Representative John Conyers and Senator Al Franken to resign, more details broke on Thursday [11/30/2017] of the congressional slush fund used to pay off such victims.  ABC World News Tonight was the only network evening broadcast from the big three (ABC, CBS, and NBC) to report that the male victims of former New York Democratic Congressman Eric Massa were paid a settlement of nearly $100,000 combined.  At the end of a report about the claims against Conyers and the mounting pressure from party leadership for him to resign, ABC briefly (37 seconds) discussed the new revelations.

Media Enablers Protected Democratic Predators For Years.  It's bad enough that lawmakers created a taxpayer-financed protection scheme that let them sexually harass their employees.  The fact that the mainstream press has apparently been contributing to this cover up is even worse.

Terrorists Use Banned Guns To Murder 235 Egyptians, Media Fails To Report.  Islamic terrorists ruthlessly murdered at least 235 Egyptians at a mosque on Friday when they detonated a bomb which forced mosque-goers to run outside where the terrorists were waiting with automatic rifles.  Terrorists tried to prevent people from fleeing the area by blowing up cars and using them as roadblocks, Sky News reported.  Officials suspect ISIS to be responsible for the attack, which is being billed as the worst attack in the nation's modern history, as it left at least 235 people dead and over 130 injured, the Daily Mail added.

Democrat News Network:  CNN Fails To Report These 24 Democrat Sex Scandals.  As sexual misconduct allegations continue to rock liberal Hollywood, the mainstream media establishment, and politicians of both political parties, at least the Democrats can count on CNN to eschew reporting about dozens of sexual allegations on members of their party.  To be fair, it is worth noting that CNN has reported on a couple of the big Democrat sex scandals currently receiving major media attention on other news networks, specifically the scandals involving Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) and Rep. John Conyers (D-MI).

Media Ignores Key Alabama Witness Reports That Refute Roy Moore Accuser.  On top of the original story told by Gloria Allred falling apart; and on top of Allred refusing to produce the yearbook from the accuser that she highlighted as evidence; the Alabama campaign of Roy Moore has been contacted by several key witnesses who refute the story described by Gloria Allred's client and media accuser Beverly Nelson.  Interestingly, the witnesses who have direct and specific knowledge of the events Mrs. Nelson described in 1977 already told the media her story didn't make sense and provided specific examples that refute the claims of Mrs. Nelson.  However, after waiting to see their accounts told by the media, and seeing nothing, the witnesses realized the media was hiding them.

Fire Captain concludes recent California fires caused by "directed energy weapon".  Fire Captain John Lord speaks out about the recent California wildfires and explains how the fires could not have been created naturally.  The fires spread to over 16 locations and even crossed an eight-lane highway before burning down an entire Kmart store in just hours.  Cars were found melted.  Houses were found "dustified."  [Video clip]

Media Silent as Fed Committee Quietly Passes Act Allowing Warrantless Searches.  It has been over one month since the latest dangerous piece of legislation meant to infringe on Americans' constitutional rights was introduced, and Congress is now moving forward with the bill that will have serious ramifications for all Americans by blatantly violating the freedoms guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment if it becomes law.  The USA Liberty Act has passed the House Judiciary Committee by a vote of 27-8, and as Congressman Justin Amash noted, all privacy advocates should be concerned about the overwhelming support the bill is receiving from Congress.

Silence on Sleaze-Bob Menendez.  For the past 11 weeks, Bob Menendez has been on trial for 18 counts of bribery, fraud and corruption involving nearly $1 million in gifts and donations. [...] A new Media Research Center analysis reported that ABC, CBS and NBC devoted 40 times more of their morning and evening TV newscast coverage this past week to Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore's alleged sexual assault accusers than to the ongoing federal trial of one of the Democrats' most powerful, visible and entrenched figures on Capitol Hill.

'CBS Evening News' Gives 44 Seconds to Trump Drinking Water, 0 to Menendez.  Wednesday marked the continuation of the near total blackout on the corruption trial of Democratic New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez by the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC).  While none of the networks covered the trial, which was in the middle of jury deliberations, CBS Evening News thought it was a priority to run a 44-second news brief mocking President Trump for drinking from a bottle of water while in the middle of a long speech.  A recent study by the Media Research Center found that since the Menendez trial began on September 9, CBS had only spent 22 seconds talking about it during CBS This Morning, while CBS Evening News had not touched the trial at all during that time.  That meant CBS News had spent twice as much time in one evening reporting on Trump drinking from a bottle of water than they had in the 70 days since the trial began.

Networks Ignore Dem Candidate Arrested For Stalking.  A Democrat running for Congress was arrested on a stalking charge last week, but the media has refused to give the story any coverage.  David Alcon, who is running for an open congressional seat in New Mexico, was arrested this past Friday on a felony stalking charge after a woman accused him of sending her frightening and lewd text messages and showing up at her home.  Alcon was previously convicted of stalking his ex-girlfriend in 2007 and was described as "infatuated" and "clearly obsessed" by the judge in the case.  The story has been met with silence from a number of media outlets despite their breathless coverage of the sexual assault scandal surrounding Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.

USA Media Ignores Historic Prime Time Broadcast of Official Beijing Welcome For President Trump.  In 1989 the communist regime of China delivered one of the more infamous authoritarian displays of brutality in modern history.  The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, commonly known in mainland China as the June Fourth Incident, were student-led demonstrations in Beijing, the capital of the People's Republic of China.  In response the communist regime crushed the student uprising and hundreds were massacred.  Almost thirty years later, it's now 2017, and in the exact same place, on the exact same streets, the Chinese government played the U.S. national anthem while broadcasting — for the first time ever — to their own country:  the welcoming ceremony of a state visit by a U.S. President and First Lady at the Grand Hall of the People's Republic of China. [...] Actual trumpets sounded the regalia as a U.S. President exited the limousine in front of the Great Hall; but not a single U.S. network, broadcast or cable, showed the historic moments of the ceremony when President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump arrived.  Thirty years ago, China was controlling broadcasts and hiding uncomfortable events on that location.  In 2017 it's the U.S. media apparatus doing the hiding.

Study: CNN's Failure to Cover Democrat's Corruption Trial.  After 62 days of testimony, closing arguments and now jury deliberations, CNN has only managed to devote a paltry 36 minutes out of their 24/7 news broadcast to the corruption trial of sitting Democratic Senator Bob Menendez.  More than two-fifths of this coverage (14 minutes, 35 seconds) has been generated by one anchor:  Jake Tapper, split between his weekday show The Lead and his Sunday show State of the Union.  Most of CNN's news programs, including the prime time shows Erin Burnett OutFront, Anderson Cooper 360 and CNN Tonight With Don Lemon, still haven't covered the trial at all.

Networks Skip This Key Detail:  Rand Paul's Assailant Is a 'Liberal' 'Socialist'.  Imagine if lefty Senator Elizabeth Warren had been violently assaulted by an arch-conservative.  Think journalists would mention that point?  Well, they didn't when the situation was reversed and Rand Paul was attacked over the weekend by a "liberal" "socialist."  Only ABC even bothered to compare this latest incident to the attempted murder of Republican congressmen in the summer.  The total coverage on ABC, CBS and NBC of this latest violent act is 3 minutes and 7 seconds

Questions remain in Las Vegas Strip shooting investigation.  [For example,]
  •   What was the gunman's motive?
  •   When did the gunman start planning his massacre?
  •   Where did the gunman store all of the weapons before the shooting?
  •   Why did the gunman stop shooting?(Las Vegas Review-Journal)
  •   Considering the gunman killed himself, why are investigators withholding so much information about the case?  Do they believe he had accomplices?
  •   What was the gunman planning to do with the explosives found in his car?
  •   What evidence shows he might have planned to escape?
  •   What exactly were the 23 guns found in the hotel suite?  How many were equipped with bump stocks?  How many had been fired?  How many jammed?  How many rounds did he fire?
  •   What else was recovered from the gunman's hotel room and his homes in Mesquite and Reno?
  •   When did authorities determine the hard drive from the gunman's laptop was missing?
  •   Which law enforcement agency is in charge of what parts of the investigation?

Fiery Closing Arguments in Menendez Bribery Trial Draw Yawns from Nets.  "This is what bribery looks like," declared federal prosecutor J.P. Cooney on Thursday as the closing arguments in the long-running corruption trial of Democratic New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez took place.  The trial had seen contentious exchanges between the defense and the judge, claims of a lack of impartiality, and requests for the case to be thrown and for a mistrial to be declared.  The closing arguments themselves were just as fiery, but just as with the rest of the trial, the big three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) pretended it didn't happen.

Network newscasts don't mention Brazile Clinton-DNC revelations.  The broadcast evening newscasts on three major networks on Thursday didn't mention bombshell revelations by former Democratic National Committee interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile.  Brazile has written in a new book that she discovered evidence that she said showed Hillary Clinton's campaign "rigged" the Democratic presidential primary.  "ABC's World News Tonight," "NBC Nightly News" and "CBS Evening News" all didn't report the allegations by Brazile on Thursday evening despite it receiving considerable coverage on cable news and in print and online media.  Brazile was also trending as one of Twitter's top topics on Thursday [11/2/2017].

Story Laundering:  Fusion GPS, Fake News, Russians And Reporters.  "The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns," Ben Rhodes gloated.  "That's a sea change.  They literally know nothing."  Rhodes, the White House's "Obama whisperer", was explaining how he had pulled the wool over the media's eyes on the Iran Deal to a journalist.  The media responded to the story by attacking the journalist who reported it, not Rhodes for viewing them as easily manipulated useful idiots.  The media knew that it knew nothing.  And it didn't care.  It just didn't want outsiders to know it.  What ties together the debate about Russian collusion, fake news and Fusion GPS is the implosion of the media.  What were the professional reporters doing while Rhodes was manipulating the 27-year-olds?  They were working at places like Fusion GPS and 'story laundering' narratives to the kiddies.

Bias: 1,000 Minutes for Trump/Russia 'Collusion' vs. 20 Seconds for Hillary/Russia Scandal.  Last week, The Hill published new information about Russian efforts to infiltrate the American uranium industry, including $31.3 million in payments to the Clinton Foundation, as well as a huge speaking fee delivered to Bill Clinton personally, while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.  In eight days, the network evening news coverage of this story amount to a mere 20 seconds on ABC's World News Tonight.

CNN: After 7 Days, Only 4 Minutes On Clinton Uranium Scandal.  For the first seven days after The Hill published startling new information about the Clinton/Russia/Uranium scandal, the 24-hour cable news giant CNN had produced less than five minutes (3 minutes, 54 seconds) of actual news coverage about the case.  From 7am ET October 17 through 7am ET October 24, CNN's reporters and anchors only mentioned the scandal twice:  first, on October 19, after President Trump scolded reporters for failing to cover the story, anchor Wolf Blitzer offered a 19-second explanation of what Trump was talking about.

Secrets and Lies:  Three Russian Stories.  The major developing stories this week have been so scantily and poorly covered in the mainstream press that you may want an easy primer.  To fully understand it you have to look at alternative media, because just as Harvey Weinstein counted on complicit enablers — his colleagues, victims and the press — Hillary Clinton, Robert Mueller and a cast of characters, including a press determined to cover for them have hidden what occurred.

Harvey Weinstein Scandal Forcing Las Vegas Tragedy off the Front Page?  For 12 days straight, Hollywood Harvey's story has been hogging the news, leaving no oxygen for other stories unassociated with the burgeoning scandal.  Since Harvey Weinstein, 'The Sexual Predator' became the News of the Day, readers find only snippets about what went down in Las Vegas.  The mass shooting in Vegas, the deadliest in American history, took place on Oct. 1.  The Weinstein story revelation on Oct. 5.  Does anybody believe in coincidence any more? [...] Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment allegations uncovered by the New York Times stretch over nearly three decades.  The Times finally came out with their scandal blockbuster on Oct. 4.  Ronan Farrow's story followed one day later in the New Yorker.  Why Now?

Five Painful Lessons from the Weinstein Scandal.  [#3] Hollywood has a watchdog press, but it's facing the wrong direction, protecting the powerful from the comparatively powerless.  Perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that the New York Times and The New Yorker reported most of the allegations against Weinstein; the specialty publications have a much more symbiotic relationship with the industry's movers and shakers.  They can't adequately cover the industry without access, and their access dries up if they cross the wrong power player.

Reporter Produces Witnesses to Back Up Claim New York Times Killed 2004 Weinstein Exposé.  TheWrap's Sharon Waxman has found witnesses to back up her claim that the left-wing New York Times killed a 2004 story that exposed producer Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual predations.  Just hours after the Weinstein scandal went nuclear earlier this month, Waxman revealed that way back in 2004, while working as a reporter for the Times, she nailed down a story about how Fabrizio Lombardo, the head of Miramax in London, had zero film experience and that his real job was to procure women for Weinstein.

Morning Joe Attacks Trump For Drawing Attention to Blackout of Clinton-Uranium Scandal.  On Thursday's [10/19/2017] Morning Joe, after days of ignoring The Hill's latest reporting confirming an extensive racketeering scheme organized by Russian government officials that appeared to directly benefit Bill and Hillary Clinton, the show finally decided to cover the story.  However, instead of getting worked up about unethical or possibly illegal Clinton-Russian collusion, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, along with Democratic Senators Tim Kaine and Michael Bennet, attacked Trump for tweeting about the new revelations and accused him of undermining American democratic institutions.

48 hrs later, CNN gives 10 seconds to the REAL Russian scandal.  On Tuesday [10/17/2017], The Hill reported that the "FBI uncovered [a] Russian bribery plot before [the] Obama administration approved [a] controversial nuclear deal with Moscow."  The story seemingly vindicated President Trump's insistence during the campaign that the Clinton Foundation received donations from Russia to influence then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's decision on whether to approve the purchase of 20 percent of the U.S. uranium supply by a Russian-controlled company.  In the over-48 hours since that story broke, CNN had not mentioned the story on a produced program.  After President Trump tweeted and mentioned the story in a news conference, that ended just after 1:00 pm ET today [10/19/2017].

Andrea Mitchell's Sad Excuse For Not Covering The Clinton Uranium Story.  MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell had a sorry excuse for why she hasn't covered a story about the Clinton Foundation receiving kickbacks from Russian officials. [...] Andrea Mitchell, who hosts her own show on MSNBC and is the chief foreign correspondent for NBC News, claimed that she hasn't been ignoring the story because she covered it "some years ago."  "President Trump, at the end there, talking about a story we did do on NBC some years ago," Mitchell defended.  Rich Noyes, a research director for the Media Research Center, says that coverage was two years ago and only lasted 92 seconds.

Pressure on NBC exec to resign after revelation he dined with sex creep Harvey Weinstein before spiking expose.  NBC News is coming under increasing criticism for its failure to investigate why its embattled president, Noah Oppenheim, spiked a bombshell story that would have been the first to expose Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein as a sexual predator.  An NBC spokesperson says the network is not investigating the matter, despite new revelations that Oppenheim sat at small table with Weinstein at an exclusive New York gala in April, when Oppenheim reportedly already knew that his reporter, celebrity scion Ronan Farrow, had obtained damning audio recordings in which Weinstein admitted groping the breasts of an Italian model.

Disturbing Video — U.S. Aid To Puerto Rico Thrown in Dumpsters.  There has been a great deal of political consternation and talking points about U.S. aid, or the lack thereof, delivered to Puerto Rico.  Indeed, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yul'n Cruz Soto has been a favorite of Democrats and liberal U.S. media as a spokesperson for claims the U.S. has not done enough for the island's people.  However, a disturbing video shows Puerto Rico's Secretary of State showing boxes and boxes of food, water and supplies being discarded by Puerto Rican officials in dumpsters, obviously not reaching the intended residents.

Networks Censor Latest Bombshell on Russia/Uranium/Clinton Scandal.  New revelations that the FBI uncovered a Russian bribery plot before the Obama administration approved a nuclear deal with Moscow, that involved millions of kickback money to the Clinton Foundation, have been utterly ignored by the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening or morning shows, since the story broke early Tuesday [10/17/2016].  In fact, the network evening shows have only spent only 3 minutes and 1 second on the Clinton Foundation scandal in more than two years.  The latest developments in the Russia/Uranium/Clinton scandal were first reported, on Tuesday, by The Hill's John Solomon and Alison Spann.

Puerto Rican Secretary Of State Blows Whistle On Hurricane Relief Fraud, Finds Unopened US Aid In Dumpster.  Most of Puerto Rico still does not have power, and its inhabitants are struggling with shortages in food, water, and essential supplies.  However, yesterday Marin made the shocking discovery that a sizable portion of United States aid to Puerto Rico is going to waste before it ever reaches the hurricane victims.  The video shows countless unopened boxes full of ready-to-eat meals in a dumpster, presumably thrown away by Puerto Rican officials.  The video was shot in Patillas, a city on the island's southeastern coast.  You won't hear this stuff from the lying mainstream media.

Media Silence:  New Jersey Democratic Congressman Bob Menendez Is Still On Trial For Corruption.  After the prosecution concluded their case Friday [10/13/2017], Menendez's lawyers filed a motion to dismiss the case, claiming that prosecutors couldn't tie Menendez's friendship with Melgen to any of Menendez's specific actions, and that any meetings Melgen had with Menendez were simply friendly chats that just happened to lead into offers of help.  Judge Walls didn't see it their way.  "This court concludes that a rational jury could deduce that the defendants entered into a quid pro quo agreement," Walls said in his decision Monday morning.  "The jury is at liberty to accept or reject."  That means Menendez must now launch a defense.  A quick rundown of court filings will tell you that won't be an easy task.

New Evidence in Russia/Uranium/Clinton Foundation Scandal, Will Nets Report?  On October 17 The Hill's John Solomon and Alison Spann reported that "Before the Obama administration had approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin's atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews."

AP Stylebook on transgender coverage:  Don't say trans person was 'born a girl or boy'.  In an #APStyleChat Twitter session Tuesday afternoon [10/10/2017], The Associated Press's official Stylebook account counseled journalists to not describe a transgender individual as having been "born" a certain sex.  "Call people transgender only if relevant; give the name they use publicly; avoid references to being born a boy or girl," wrote @APStylebook during the interactive Twitter session.  The wire agency then urged writers to "[a]void transgendered or transsexual; don't call someone a transgender; trans is OK on second reference and in headlines."  In a subsequent tweet, the AP prescribed the terminology to be used to refer to an individual's medical procedures for transitioning:  "For medical procedures often but not always used for a transition, say sex reassignment or gender confirmation."

AP Lingo Police:  Use 'Gender Confirmation' Surgery for Sex Change, Avoid 'Born a Boy or Girl'.  Our longtime colleague Ken Shepherd at the Washington Times reported the AP Stylebook team are re-jiggering their politically correct terminology again on the transgender issues.  They call themselves "the journalist's bible."  They took to their @APStylebook Twitter page on Tuesday to offer an update.  First, "Use transgender for people whose gender identity doesn't match the sex or gender they were identified as having at birth."  Then, let people forget someone switched genders if possible.

Note to the Associated Press:  Alas, most reporters are probably much more familiar with the AP Style Book than with the actual Bible.  But to compare your style book with The Bible is blasphemy.  You would never dare to call it "the journalist's koran" — with a lower-case "k."  To fail to capitalize Bible is disrespectful to the Bible and to the English language.  To normalize deviant trans-sexual and homosexual behavior is an affront to civilization.

When Will They Report the Obama Forgeries?  [Scroll down]  [S]ince March 1, 2012, every mainstream media outlet, including Fox News, has "participated in a cover-up" of epic proportions by refusing to air news of the reported forgery of Barack Hussein Obama's "long-form" birth certificate and Selective Service registration form released by a criminal investigator working under the authority of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO).  The lead investigator of the MCSO's then-"Cold Case Posse," former New Jersey detective Mike Zullo, ultimately gave three press conferences over the course of five years, the first of which was held on March 1, 2012 and revealed that probable cause existed that the "long-form" image uploaded to the White House website on April 27, 2011 is a "computer-generated forgery."  At the same time, Zullo announced that Obana's purported Selective Service registration form was also found to be fraudulent.  The Obama White House did not address those claims.  With the exception of a local Arizona television station, broadcast media failed to report or investigate the findings on their own to confirm or refute them.

Seen From Above:  California Fires Reduced Entire Communities to Ash.  The charred ruins of hundreds of homes in Coffey Park stretched on for two-thirds of a mile, block after block, cul-de-sac after cul-de-sac.  Cars had been flipped over, or knocked more than 100 feet away from their original parking spaces, residents here said.

Why Ronan Farrow's Harvey Weinstein Bombshell Did Not Run on NBC.  Why didn't NBC News break the Harvey Weinstein bombshell that ultimately ended up in The New Yorker under the byline of one of its contributors?  It's a question Rachel Maddow put to Ronan Farrow — until this summer an NBC News contributor fronting a series called Undercovered — who had been working on the story for 10 months.  Farrow's piece was originally targeted to air on NBC in February, just as Hollywood was gearing up for the Oscars, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.  Those sources say that Farrow was working on the piece at NBC well into the summer, when he suddenly stopped coming to the office.  His contributor contract with NBC News expired over the summer and he was in the midst of negotiating a new deal with the network.  Multiple sources say that Farrow had secured an on-camera interview with Rose McGowan, who the New York Times revealed as one of the many women to whom Weinstein paid settlements.

The Media Needs to Look in the Mirror After Harvey Weinstein.  The media loves to call for soul searching in other industries.  Rarely does it heed its own calls.  What has happened with Harvey Weinstein, the movie producer now accused of disturbing and innumerable examples of sexual misconduct, should be one of those moments, because the press has badly botched their coverage of this controversial man going on thirty years.  Yet instead of soul searching what you can expect to see over the coming days and months — and are already starting to see — is a lot of sanctimonious hand wringing and outrage about Harvey Weinstein, all he is accused of, and what it might mean.

Report: NBC News Passed on Ronan Farrow's Bombshell Report of Weinstein Rape Allegations.  NBC News passed on a story by contributor Ronan Farrow that it allegedly possessed in August about three separate rape allegations against Harvey Weinstein that eventually appeared in the New Yorker Tuesday, according to a report.  According to the Huffington Post, Farrow's bombshell Tuesday report — in which three women, including actress Asia Argento, accused the movie mogul of rape — "was in NBC's hands as recently as August, according to multiple sources both inside and outside the network."

How NBC 'Killed' Ronan Farrow's Weinstein Exposé.  Freelance NBC News correspondent Ronan Farrow, whose months-long investigation into reports of Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct was spiked by the network but morphed into a journalistic blockbuster at The New Yorker, initiated a scuffle with the Peacock Network on Tuesday night [10/10/2017].  Appearing on MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show — which, like NBC, is a property of NBC Universal and its parent company Comcast — Farrow disputed what sources said was NBC News President Noah Oppenheim's judgment this past summer that Farrow's reporting on the movie mogul and the women he allegedly harassed and assaulted wasn't ready for prime-time.

Why the Media Covered for Harvey Weinstein.  At the 100th anniversary of Planned Parenthood, honoring Hillary Clinton, the recently defeated candidate, drinks named "Toxic Masculinity" were being served.  Also on the scene was Harvey Weinstein.  And Harvey had his thick wallet open to the tune of $100K for the abortion organization.  Harvey was sitting with Hillary.  Not to mention Meryl Streep and Shonda Rimes.  The A-list celebs in attendance knew exactly what and who Harvey was.  His habits were no secret.  If you look carefully enough at certain TV shows and movies, they are referenced and winked at.

MSM Ignores Violent Antifa Plot Caught on TAPE by Crowder.  "Louder with Crowder" host Steven Crowder has released a new video, a video he told Conservative Review is "by far, the biggest video I've ever done."  In this undercover exposé, Crowder and his producer, Not Gay Jared, infiltrated an Antifa group at the University of Utah just before conservative commentator and Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro was scheduled to speak there.  They became part of this Antifa group's private internet message boards, had this group install an encrypted messaging app on their phones, and even learned their codenames.  But things came to a head when Jared was handed a knife and a screwdriver and was informed of a plan to "lure" conservatives to a parking lot, where Antifa would lie in wait with a stash of hidden guns.

Why didn't TV networks show angry, booing NFL fans Sunday or Monday?  Networks typically do not televise the national anthem except for the Super Bowl and other special occasions, but they recognized there would be intense viewer interest this past weekend.  Some fans, if they reacted at all, happily clapped and cheered during protests, but others did not, and they angrily let their home teams know it.  The audio mics picked up the boos.  Yet the TV networks mostly avoided crowd shots Sunday, so there was never a chance for viewers to see fans jeering players.

TV networks skipped one crucial part of NFL protests.  Television networks uncharacteristically showed the national anthem before NFL games this weekend, but at least one staffer says that coverage may have come with certain restrictions.  A "behind-the-scenes staffer" told the Sporting News camera operators were told to avoid crowd shots during the anthem, because of any fans potentially booing or protesting the NFL players' protest.  There were reports from several stadiums of fans booing when players decided to kneel for the anthem, joining a protest of racial inequality started by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.  Jennifer Sabatelle of CBS told the Sporting News the network's crews were under no such orders.

CNN Loves To Cover Corruption Trials Of Senators, Unless The Senator's A Democrat.  The ongoing trial of Sen. Bob Menendez is a big deal.  But you wouldn't know that from the scant coverage it has received from CNN.  The Democratic senator and his co-defendant face a collective 18 counts of bribery and fraud for a scheme involving private plane rides, luxury vacations, $750,000 in campaign contributions, and Medicare fraud.  If Menendez is found guilty and steps down from office, Republican Gov. Chris Christie could choose his successor — potentially altering the political makeup of the U.S. Senate.

CNN Once Called Menendez Trial 'Big Deal,' So Where's the Coverage?  Since it began more than two weeks ago, CNN has provided a paltry 14 minutes and 11 seconds of coverage to the corruption trial of Democratic Senator Robert Menendez.  In fact, the 24-hour cable news network has mentioned the trial only once since September 7.

As Evidence of Election Fraud Emerges, the Media Wants to Keep You in the Dark.  If you have no idea what happened at the second meeting of President Donald Trump's Advisory Commission on Election Integrity in New Hampshire on Sept. 12, I'm not surprised.  Though a horde of reporters attended the meeting, almost all of the media stories that emerged from it simply repeated the progressive left's mantra that the commission is a "sham."  Almost no one covered the substantive and very concerning testimony of 10 expert witnesses on the problems that exist in our voter registration and election system.  The witnesses included academics, election lawyers, state election officials, data analysts, software experts, and computer scientists.

Nolte: MSM Always Knew Trump Camp Was Wiretapped - They Just Lied About It.  President Trump's total vindication over his wiretap claim reminds me of one of the most important things I have discovered over the past couple of years:  If the national media loses its ever-loving mind and launches a campaign to brand Trump a liar, that can mean only one thing — that Trump is not only telling the truth, he is telling a Big Truth, an inconvenient truth, a truth the MSM does not want the American people to hear.

DC Media Covered Up Sally Quinn's Occultism, Hex-Casting For Decades.  The reception given to Sally Quinn's new book, Finding Magic, has been strangely quiet.  Perhaps that's because the book shamelessly reveals that since 1973, if not earlier, Quinn, who was the nation's capital's de facto social gatekeeper for several decades, deceived the world about the true nature of her "religious" outlook, and did so with the help of the rest of the Washington press corps — that is, if one considers belief in the occult, practicing voodoo, and supposedly communicating with ghosts the foundations of a "religion."

The Left Closes Ranks to Protect the Great Charlottesville Whitewash.  [Scroll down]  Trump was not only right after-the-fact about Charlottesville, but the violence from both sides was predicted, and city and state officials were warned about it.  It has been over a week since the news about this DHS warning broke, but The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, and the major networks and liberal news media have ignored it.

When Is A Scandal Not A Scandal?  When There's A Democrat Involved.  A sitting U.S. Senator is currently on trial for bribery, and if he's found guilty it could have major political ramifications.  Haven't heard about this case?  That's because the Senator in question is a Democrat.  A CNN story this week about the opening of the trial against New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez noted that "Democrats are eager to avoid the subject of Menendez's bribery trial."  That headline would have been just as accurate if it said "Reporters" instead of "Democrats."  Menendez in on trial for allegedly having sold his office in exchange for luxury vacations, private flights, and piles of campaign cash.

A deal made possible by Antifa's collapse.  It is not what the press reports that matters, it is what the press does not report that matters most. [...] I mean when it comes to demonizing and marginalizing people, no one has been called more crude names than The Donald.  And yet, here he was graciously allowing Schumer and Pelosi to visit him in the Oval Office and cut a deal to get aid to Houston without a political catfight.  The reason is the Democrats need this win.  August was horrible for them.  They revealed what ugly, hateful, mean, spiteful, and nasty people they are through their Antifa henchmen.

Networks Hide Senator Bob Menendez's [D-NJ] Corruption Trial.  Federal prosecutors are currently trying to put away Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) on corruption charges, but in the world of the mainstream media, the trial isn't even going on.  If found guilty, Menendez's replacement could increase GOP control in the upper chamber of the legislature.  However, despite the high stakes, broadcast news networks have barely even mentioned the senator's name this year, let alone the trial.

NYT refuses to call a Democrat on trial a Democrat.  Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey will stand trial for bribery, and the New York Times feels obligated to cover the courtroom drama.  But the Times childishly refuses to call Democrat Menendez a Democrat.

NYT Article on Senator's Corruption Trial Omits the Word Democrat.  A "trivial detail."  But if the story was about a "Republican" senator, the word Republican would be in the headline... with "Conservative" thrown in too.  And probably in every sentence of the article.

Nets Censor Bombshell That Comey Didn't Wait for Facts to Rescue Hillary.  Conclusion first, facts second.  That, allegedly, was the mentality of ex-FBI Director James Comey in dealing with Hillary Clinton's e-mail scandal.  Yet this revelation was ignored by ABC, CBS and NBC on Thursday and Friday.  Comey, who was fired by Donald Trump in May, decided against criminal charges of Hillary Clinton before 17 interviews of witnesses were even complete.  Fox News, MSNBC and CNN all highlighted the story.  Yet, despite a combined nine and a half hours of air time on Thursday night [8/31/2017] and Friday morning, the networks couldn't be bothered.

Actress Jokes with Abortionist:  My First Abortion Was 'My Best One'.  What do you get when you put an actress who jokes about abortion in the same room as an abortionist who says he's never killed a baby?  Cheers, laughter and attacks on pro-life Christians.  Or that's what happened in Seattle.  In June, two media-beloved figures spoke at a #ShoutYourAbortion event in Seattle — but surprisingly the event went unnoticed by the media.

AP, NY Times Have Ignored Wasserman Schultz-Dem IT Scandal for Over a Month.  Since Imran Awan's arrest in late July, the Daily Caller has published roughly two dozen follow-up stories on various aspects of the scandal involving the longtime rogue Democrat IT staffer and his inexplicably enriched family members.  The Associated Press and the New York Times have, from all appearances, published nothing since July 28.  At APNews.com, the site which has replaced the wire service's old "Big Story" site but which also theoretically includes important coverage from other AP-subscribing sources, the last story on Awan, the IT staffer for former Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was on July 26, the day the Congresswoman officially fired him.

Exclusive: Imran Awan Has Still-Active Secret House Account, And It's Tied To An Intelligence Staffer.  A former IT aide suspected of stealing equipment and data from Congress still has an active, secret email account on the House computer system, even though he has been banned from the congressional network because of a criminal investigation into the alleged cybersecurity violations, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.  Imran Awan's still-active email address is linked to the name of a House staffer who specializes in intelligence and homeland security matters for Indiana Democratic Rep. André Carson.

Want a Pass from the Media?  Call Yourself 'Mohammed'.  Some crime stories the media relish.  Others they resist covering.  In February of this year, a drunken peckerwood named Adam Purinton shot and killed an Indian engineer in suburban Kansas City thinking the man was an Iranian.  The media nationwide ran with this story and shamelessly tied the shooting to the rise of Donald Trump.  The Kansas City Star posted more than 50 articles on this one crime alone.  Three years earlier, the Star widely covered the story of a highway shooter who terrorized the metro for more than a month, hitting at least a dozen cars and wounding several people.  Then the police arrested the shooter.  The fact that he was black dimmed the enthusiasm in local newsrooms.  The fact that his first name was "Mohammed" killed it.

Antifa Racist Arrested for 'Allegedly' Sucker Punching Black Trump Supporter.  Over the weekend, AntiFa left wing domestic terrorist held a "rally" to protest white supremacy.  Of course, nothing AntiFa does is just a peaceful protest.  It either includes violence, burning, looting, smashing windows or vandalizing.  This past weekend in Laguna Beach was no different.  The mostly lily white AntiFa left wing terrorists sucker punched a black Trump supporter because he strayed off the Democrat plantation.  The lily white terrorist named Richard Losey (appropriately named) was finally arrested.  As usual, no coverage of this from the national left wing media.

Where's Coverage of Democratic Senator's Corruption Trial?  Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., is scheduled for trial on corruption charges on September 6, 2017.  The jury selection in that trial starts today.  While local newspapers like the NY Times and local television stations have covered jury selection, cable networks have been eerily silent.

Navy's Report on Fitzgerald Collision Is Evidence Of Corruption.  Two months after the USS Fitzgerald's June 18 collision with a freighter in the Sea Of Japan, the Navy announced that the ship's commanding officer, executive officer, and senior enlisted man were being relieved of their positions. [...] The Fitz's damage control fiasco may be a small reflection of the OOD's failure on the bridge.  What was that officer doing before the collision that so diverted his/her judgment, and after the collision that it took him/her 14 minutes to sound General Quarters?  Drugs?  Sex?  What kinds of people and policies are in at the controls in today's Navy?  Unfortunately, the Navy is giving us one more example of how America's ruling class deals with its failures:  indict formal scapegoats, issue long reports that sidestep the key issues, and close the matter by promising to "continue the investigation."  That is why serious persons assume that official reports are cover-ups.

15 Antifa Photos You'll Never See in Legacy Media.  Today's Democrat Party is Antifa.  They own this terror group.  And, yes, it is a terror group.

Media Emphasizes Florida Cop Killer is a Marine, Not Muslim.  Let's not jump to any conclusions, but Glenn Miller aka Malik Mohammad Ali's past time in the Marines didn't have much to do with shooting two police officers.  His new identity change might have.  And his racist tantrums.  But the media keeps emphasizing that he was a Marine.

Suspected Florida Cop Killer Claimed To Be Member Of Black Extremist Group.  The Florida man who allegedly ambushed and killed two Kissimmee police officers Friday night is a self-professed member of a black extremist group who appears to have been upset by last week's events in Charlottesville, Va.  Everett Glenn Miller, 45, was arrested and charged with first degree murder in the killing of Officers Sam Howard and Matthew Baxter.  Miller, who goes by the name Malik Mohammad Ali on Facebook, allegedly ambushed and shot the officers as they were responding to a disturbance call.

Collusion Gone Missing.  If you've been following the collusion hysteria, you won't want to miss this story.  The story comes in the accustomed form — under the byline of numerous Post heavy hitters (Tom Hamburger, Carol D. Leonnig and Rosalind S. Helderman with the assistance of Adam Entous, Alice Crites, Devlin Barrett, David Filipov, Philip Rucker and Ellen Nakashima), features the usual anonymous sources, and stands at one remove from the original documents — but this is a collusion story with a difference.  The collusion has gone missing.

What is 'Antifa'? And why is the media so reluctant to expose it?  The mainstream media are oversimplifying what happened this past weekend when riots broke out in Berkeley, California, during a rally for free speech put on by Trump backers.  In doing so, the reporting implies that those supporting the president were prepared for violence while those in opposition are simply opposing "fascism."  Twenty-one people were arrested Sunday [8/13/2017] after fistfights broke out near Martin Luther King Jr.  Civic Center Park, where a rally for free speech put on by a pro-Trump group Liberty Revival Alliance was scheduled.  Rocks were thrown, and sticks and skateboards were used to beat people.  Of course, the MSM reporting is slanted.

Seminole, Florida, stabber stopped by — drumroll, please — a gun.  A mass stabber cutting into three victims in Seminole, Florida, was apparently stopped dead in his tracks when his fourth target pulled out a gun.  Don't expect this story to make CNN headlines.

Leftists Put Donald Trump's Head on a Pike in Union Square NYC.  You just got to love the peace, love and tolerant left.  Egged on the media, protesting at Union Square in New York City pulled a Kathy Griffin and put a beheaded Donald Trump head on a pike, dripping in blood earlier today.  As usual, this goes unreported by the corrupt media.

Licenses, ID Cards Sold to Illegal Aliens by Corrupt State Workers Used for Voter Fraud.  A year after Judicial Watch reported a rise in illegal aliens using fake Puerto Rican birth certificates to obtain authentic U.S. passports and drivers' licenses, the feds have busted a Massachusetts operation run by corrupt state workers.  The state employees sold drivers' licenses and state identification cards to illegal immigrants who bought Puerto Rican documents on the black market, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ).  The operation perpetuated voter fraud because some of the false identities and addresses were used to vote in Boston, the state's capital and largest city.  The case is the latest of many illustrating that there's an epidemic of voter fraud in the U.S. that's seldom reported in the mainstream media.

When Loretta Met Bill.  In many quarters of the American news media today, seasoned journalists seem incapable of pondering those parts of reality that don't complement their political worldviews. [...] Consider the trove of emails between FBI and Department of Justice officials published this week.  The emails concern the June 27, 2016, meeting between former president Bill Clinton and then-attorney general Loretta Lynch.  As readers may remember, Clinton paid an apparently impromptu visit to the attorney general aboard her DoJ plane while it was parked at Phoenix's Sky Harbor airport.  It was extremely improper for the two to meet for any reason.  Clinton was the husband of the subject of an FBI investigation, and Lynch, as attorney general, had the ultimate authority over that investigation.  The meeting likely wouldn't have made it into the news at all except for Christopher Sign, an industrious reporter with Phoenix's ABC affiliate, who pursued the story and made it national news.

Yes, Reporters Did Try To Ignore The Lynch-Clinton Scandal — Multiple Justice Dept.  Emails Show It.  Journalists rushed to the defense of two reporters after President Trump accused them of being "reluctant to cover" the scandalous tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton.  But a review of the entire cache of email exchanges inside the Justice Department at the time shows that Trump has it right.

Yes, Media Covered Lynch-Clinton Tarmac Meeting.  With A Pillow.  In the middle of the Justice Department's investigation into Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified information during the 2016 campaign, Phoenix ABC morning anchor Christopher Sign broke the bombshell news that Attorney General Loretta Lynch held a clandestine meeting with former President Bill Clinton.  Obviously a secret conversation between Clinton's husband and the attorney general overseeing her investigation raised alarms among many Americans.  But as was so frequently the case from the years 2008-2016, major media reporters were less than enthusiastic in the face of a potential major Obama administration scandal.

Judicial Watch: Media Ignore Lawsuit Against DNC, Wasserman Schultz.  News outlets are ignoring a class-action lawsuit filed by 150 Democrat voters and donors against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and its former chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, for the "breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, unjust enrichment, and negligent misrepresentation for secretly helping Clinton get the presidential nomination over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders," according to Judicial Watch.  The 35-page lawsuit claims that Wasserman Schultz and the DNC were biased towards Hillary Clinton and actively assisted her in winning her party's 2016 nomination, arguing that "the DNC was not neutral."

ACLJ: DOJ Document Dump Shows Lynch-Clinton Tarmac Summit Planned, Media Coverup.  When former President Bill Clinton met with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch at an Arizona airport, the gross impropriety of the "tarmac summit" was immediately evident.  Clinton's wife and 2016 Democrat presidential hopeful was then under FBI investigation for her server and email scandals.  The impropriety was pooh-poohed away by a defensive AG, a disinterested media, a complicit FBI, and the corrupt Clinton clan.  The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has released 413 pages of memos obtained from the DOJ that show the "tarmac summit" was planned and that the media was working with the Obama-Lynch DOJ to downplay and bury the entire incident.

The MSM Really Didn't Want To Talk About That Clinton - Loretta Lynch Meeting.  Most of you will recall that truly bizarre tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then Attorney General Loretta Lynch during the heat of the 2016 campaign.  It wasn't on either of their official schedules and if it weren't for an astute local reporter we likely never would have known about it.  Their conversation "about golf and grandchildren" just as investigations into Hillary Clinton's secret email server were reaching a crescendo did eventually make it into the national news, but just barely.  Even to this day, when questions were raised in the Senate, we've been wondering if people such as Senator Feinstein really wanted to talk about it at all. [...] Who knows if we'll ever get to the bottom of this one.  In the end, that meeting took place away from the eyes of the public and the press and we have zero to go on other than what Lynch and Clinton are willing to tell us.

Emails Show WaPo, NYT Reporters Were Reluctant To Cover Clinton And Lynch Meeting.  A series of emails from reporters at The Washington Post and The New York Times published Friday reveal they weren't eager to cover the 2016 tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then Attorney General Loretta Lynch.  The American Center for Law and Justice, a nonprofit organization, released a series of emails obtained through a FOIA request that show the reporters at the outlets didn't seem to want to cover the secret meeting between the former president and Lynch, as the Department of Justice was investigating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's email server.

ABC, NBC Ignore West Virginia's Governor Ditching Dems for GOP.  Early Thursday morning, President Trump teased a big announcement that would be made at his campaign rally in West Virginia later in the day.  Like many things in Washington lately, the announcement leaked early and it was one liberals couldn't stand:  Jim Justice, the governor of the state, was changing his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican.  It's rare for sitting governors to change their party affiliation, but that didn't matter to ABC's World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News who ignored the news altogether.

Fusion GPS and the Awans get little play.  Kim Strassel, writing at the Wall Street Journal, asks a very provocative question about Fusion GPS and who paid for the Trump Dossier:  "What if, all this time, Washington and the media have had the Russia collusion story backward?  What if it wasn't the Trump campaign playing footsie with the Vladimir Putin regime, but Democrats?  The more we learn about Fusion, the more this seems a possibility."  For all the time the MSM has spent on Russia Russia Russia, the only place you hear in-depth discussion on Fusion GPS is from conservative-leaning sites.  Why is this?

The news the media buries.  The media moguls think if they report only the bad that the good news will cease to exist.  But the good news is out there.  U.S. exports of coal rose 60%, Reuters reported.  The big increases are by England and other European countries.  It is part of the plan to make money, and to weaken Russia by making America the chief source for energy in that market.

Venezuela Descends Into Dictatorship, But Networks Can't Be Bothered.  Venezuela's oppressive, socialist president hopes to seize even more power, yet the broadcast networks continue to largely ignore his country's violent descent into dictatorship.  With over 100 Venezuelans dead from the rapidly escalating violence between the government and protesters, a special vote will take place on July 30 to give authoritarian president Nicolas Maduro the power to rewrite the Venezuelan Constitution to strip legislative power from the rightfully-elected National Assembly.  After years of struggling with the failures of socialist policy, the people of Venezuela are dangerously close to being subjected to an absolute dictatorship.

Cable Networks Black Out Coverage on Wasserman Schultz IT Scandal.  Major cable news networks have given no coverage to the burgeoning scandal involving IT staffers to former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.  Reporting by the Daily Caller News Foundation has revealed that Wasserman Schultz's top information technology staffer Iman Awan was arrested Monday after trying to flee the country amidst investigations into Awan concerning banking fraud and a criminal cybersecurity probe.  Awan wired over $280,000 to Pakistan after the FBI recently recovered multiple smashed hard drives from Awan's home.

Hill Reporter Lays Into Media on Wasserman Schultz Scandal Cover Up.  On Thursday [7/27/2017], The Hill reporter Joe Concha put the media on notice.  Speaking about the news that a staffer for Florida Congresswoman and former Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz had been arrested trying to flee the country, he blasted the liberal media for ignoring the scandal.  Speaking on FOX Business's Varney & Co., one of the few channels giving this breaking news airtime, Concha laid into mainstream media bulwarks, saying, "This is a story ABC and NBC decided they were not going to cover.  That's called the bias of omission, or the sin of omission.  CNN and MSNBC, same deal."

72.8% Of World's Renewable Energy Is Made By Burning Wood & Dung.  The hysteria over solar and wind power as the only feasible source of future 'renewable' energy flies in the face of the facts.  Wood and animal feces are both renewable, and account for almost 73% of the world's renewable energy, but you never hear about planting more trees.  Of course, the Technocrats cannot control wood or feces as energy, so it is completely ignored.

Media Forgets Bill Clinton Fired FBI Director One Day Before Vince Foster's Death.  The usual suspects in the liberal media have branded the timing of President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey as suspicious, accusing Trump of trying to block an investigation into alleged collusion with Russia. [...] But as long as we're discussing conspiracy theories, let us talk about the only other time a President Fired and FBI Director, the firing of William Sessions by one William Jefferson Clinton.  The timing of the firing of Sessions is at least equally curious, and the conspiracy theories surrounding the firing may have significantly more basis in truth.

U.S. lottery rigged, then payout used for offshore tax scam.  After Robert Rhodes collected a Wisconsin Lottery jackpot that had been rigged by his friend, he used the windfall for an investment scheme that produced another wave of undeserved government money, court records show.  Rhodes, an accomplice in a scandal that has shaken U.S. state lotteries, recently explained under oath how he used the $783,000 payout to receive an additional $180,000 in bogus tax refunds. [...] Investigators say Tipton installed software that let the computers work as they should on all but three days of the year — May 27, Nov. 22 and Dec. 29 — when they would produce predictable numbers if the drawings occurred on Wednesdays or Saturdays after 8 p.m.

Nets Blackout Report Showing Postal Service Broke Law to Support Hillary/Dems.  In a Senate hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday [7/19/2017], the United States Postal Service felt the heat bipartisan scorn for decades of violations of federal election laws.  "A new report tonight states that Postal Service employees were allowed to take leave from their jobs and still get paid as they campaigned for Hillary Clinton last year," announced Fox News Channel Anchor Bret Baier during Special Report.  Evening in light of the report by Postal Service's oversight office, ABC, CBS, and NBC failed to inform their viewers.  The systemic disregard for federal election law wasn't just the concern of Fox News.  Even the liberal Washington Post found the need to report it to their readers.

Yes, Bill Clinton ASKED Russia to interfere in a US presidential election.  Let's start here, with the 1996 leak of a document detailing a meeting between Bill Clinton and Boris Yeltsin.  Sean Guillory, writing at jacobinmag.com, states:  "According to a White House memo leaked to the Washington Times in March 1996, Clinton and Yeltsin had agreed to support each other in their respective reelection bids."  We are talking about mutual interference.  President Clinton helps President Yeltsin win, and President Yeltsin helps President Clinton win.  Bill Clinton asked the president of Russia to interfere in a US presidential election.

The Left Media's Extraordinary Popular Delusions.  The media spend their days and nights ignoring the many news stories the public should be learning about:  North Korea's nuclear program, compliments of Bill Clinton, ISIS, Iran's nuclear program compliments of Obama, the determination of some states and cities to protect illegal immigrant criminals rather than their own citizens, the domestic terrorism of groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa, etc.  Eight years of Obama gave rise to much of these plagues upon our nation and now Trump must deal with the consequences of Obama's radicalism, economic destruction and importation of tens of thousands of illegal immigrants and the systemic meltdown of the national media, both print and electronic.

San Francisco Transit Withholds Surveillance Tapes To Avoid Creating Racial 'Stereotypes'.  The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system in San Francisco and Oakland has been withholding video evidence of crimes committed on trains and at stations perpetrated by groups of teenagers, it has been revealed.  According to CBS Local, dozens of teenagers committed large-scale acts of robbery and assaults in the months of April and June.  In April, "forty to sixty" teenagers boarded a train at Coliseum stop, where they proceeded to rob seven passengers and beat up two.  In June, four teens assaulted a passenger and stole his cellphone.  Just two days later, about a dozen teens snatched the phone of a woman on a train.  In each of these cases, BART has refused to publish surveillance footage, citing fears that the videos could create negative racial perceptions.

The Editor says...
Stereotypes don't jus appear out of nowhere -- especially when the stereotype is just a description of the perpetrators.

BART Officials Hide Videos of Black Mob Violence.  Transit officials in the San Francisco area do not release videos of black criminality because they do not want to make the black kids angry. [...] For years, passengers and former passengers complained about black violence, harassment, threats, robberies and even murder on BART.  Especially aboard the trains going to and from the east bay destinations of Oakland, Richmond, etc.  In April, a large group of black people swarmed through a BART train, beating [up] — then robbing — seven passengers.  Similar but smaller events have happened at least three times since then. [...] After every episode of violence, reporters and passengers wait for BART to release the videos from the cameras scattered around the stations and inside the cars.  But it never happens.  All because BART staff fears the videos would cast black people in a bad light, said BART honcho Kerry Hamill in a memo to a BART director: [...]

Everybody Is Forgetting That Clinton Allies Did The Same Thing As Don Jr..  Many Trump critics claimed that the NYT report supported the theory that members of the Trump campaign were somehow involved in the Russian government's hacking of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta and the Democratic National Committee.  But Trump Jr., Kushner and Manafort's lone meeting with the Russian lawyer pales when compared to the coordination between Clinton allies and Ukrainian government officials who hoped to see Clinton win the 2016 election.

Russian Lawyer: 'Russians Were Funding the DNC and Supporting Hillary'.  A report from the failing New York Times tries to expose President Trump's connections to Russia by showing that Donald Trump Jr. had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 election.  The report highlights that the woman stated that she had information that Russians were funding the Democratic National Convention and were personally supporting Hillary Clinton.

Mark Levin:  CNN a 'joke,' media writer 'a propagandist'.  It began after a column from the Media Research Center, the conservative press watchdog, accused the mainstream media of ignoring the New York Times and Amazon best selling book and [Mark] Levin.  "They will allow a discussion of public policy — as long as it matches their worldview.  Think Sen. Al Franken.  He is no Mark Levin intellectually, but that's irrelevant.  His book came out a few weeks ago and he was the progressives' toast of the town, celebrated all over the 'news shows, 'public' TV and radio, and the late-night comedy shows.  The Washington Post and New York Times rolled out 1,300-word rave reviews," wrote MRC's Brent Bozell and Tim Graham.  "But once again, Levin is being shunned by the thought police.  Witness that though it's a runaway best-seller, now seven days consecutively, the establishment media have censored him completely, with not a single interview granted," they added.

Another Mark Levin Best-Seller Spiked.  Mark Levin's new runaway best-seller, "Rediscovering Americanism," somberly argues that the American experiment is over if the "tyranny of progressivism" is not defeated.  The surveys showing such a dramatic decline in patriotism, especially among the young, indicate that the progressives are succeeding.  Levin is calling for America to rekindle her exceptionalism — a belief in the inalienable rights of man and the preservation of a system of ordered liberty through the rule of law.  This is exactly the discussion the country should be having.  It's also a discussion a big swath of America wants to have.  Huge crowds are coming to Levin's book signings, and they're selling like hotcakes. [... But] though it's a runaway best-seller, now seven weeks consecutively, the establishment media have censored him completely, with not a single interview granted.

Worst media moments of the week.  The case of 11-month-old Charlie Gard is every parent's nightmare.  The child has "a rare genetic condition that has damaged his brain and left him unable to breathe without assistance," according to Fox News.  British authorities have refused to follow the parents' wishes to let them transport him to the United States for experimental treatments.  They didn't just give him a death sentence.  They said they get to decide what happens, not his parents.  ABC, CBS and NBC didn't care about the story, though American conservatives were up in arms about it.  None of the three networks mentioned the case.

The Clinton-Silsby Trafficking Scandal And How The Media Covered It Up.  Laura Silsby is the former director of The New Life Children's Refuge.  Emails from her organization can be found in Wikileaks' Hillary Clinton Email Archive discussing the NGO before her arrest.  Silsby's organization also appears in Clinton's emails, soliciting donations for their "ministry."  The Refuge was founded by Silsby and Charisa Coulter, both attendees of the Central Valley Baptist Church in Meridian, Idaho.  Silsby was reported to have a history of bad debts and unpaid wages.  Laura had claimed she planned to build an orphanage in the Dominican Republic, but a State Department diplomatic cable revealed that authorities in the country said she never submitted an application for this purpose.  They instead located to Haiti.  On January 29, 2010, Silsby was arrested with nine other American nationals attempting to steal 33 children from the country, most of whom were not even orphans and had families according to some reports.

Video Inside Little Rock Arkansas "Power Ultra Lounge" Nightclub During Shooting.  National media are stuck between a rock and a PC hard place again, because the 25 people shot at the Little Rock Power Ultra Lounge nightclub do not fit their approved PERT chart for broadcasting victim coverage.  Unfortunately, all the usual thug-life suspects were part of the participating mayhem.  To understand how challenging it is for the media, we must understand the actual reality of the situation represents every cultural affirmation the PC narrative control authority constantly try to obfuscate.  Video of black people, shooting black people, in a nightclub filled with black people shouting vulgarities and racist slogans, [...]

The Biggest Scandal You've Never Heard Of.  One of the most bizarre spectacles in Washington is flying almost completely under the radar, even though much of it is playing out in public.  And, it begs one simple question:  Is someone blackmailing one of the top members of Congress in plain sight?

ABC, CBS Omit Win for Religious Liberty in the Supreme Court, NBC Downplays.  When the Supreme Court of the United States released its latest batch of rulings on Monday, most eyes were on the court allowing partial implementation of the President's travel ban on six Middle Eastern countries.  The Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) spent a lot of time hyper focusing on that ruling and the CBO report of the Senate health care bill.  There was also a big win for religious liberty that got omitted from the reports of both ABC and CBS, while NBC simply tacked it onto the end of their travel ban report.  The case was Trinity Lutheran Church v. the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (Comer).

Trump is not under an FBI investigation.  Bernie Sanders is.  The irony here is rich.  Democrats have rallied to Bernie Sanders as the leader of the opposition against Donald Trump.  He attracts huge crowds across the nation.  One of his acolytes tried to assassinate members of Congress.  And Bernie Sanders is under investigation by the FBI, unlike the president.  In fact, Sanders and his wife are both under investigation stemming from a bank loan.  The FBI is investigating whether Sanders used his position to pressure the bank to give a college in Vermont a loan.  His wife is the president of the college and signed the paperwork.  So President Trump did not pressure James Comey, but Bernie Sanders might have pressured a bank.  The FBI is now investigating.  And still the left will rally to Sanders because they really do not care about the allegations.  They just hate Donald Trump.

Very Fake News Scandal Consumes CNN as Jeff Zucker, Network Flack Refuse to Comment on Russia Retraction to Own Network.  The scandal surrounding CNN's mishandling of a very fake news hit piece on President Donald Trump and his associates grows bigger on Sunday night [6/25/2017] as the network's president Jeff Zucker and public relations team are refusing to comment to anyone — even to CNN media reporter Brian Stelter — about what happened.  Stelter, in his Sunday evening [6/25/2017] newsletter named for the television program he hosts[,] Reliable Sources, credited a Breitbart News investigation with forcing what he admitted is an embarrassing retraction for his employer CNN.

Chuck Todd on MTP does not ask Bernie Sanders about FBI investigation of wife for $10 mill bank fraud.  Chuck Todd occupies a singular position in broadcast journalism:  host of the oldest program in the history of American television.  Yesterday [6/25/2017], he did something that must have Tim Russert, Lawrence Spivak and Martha Rountree spinning in their graves.  He hosted Bernie Sanders, arguably the leader of the American electoral left, and did not ask him about the FBI investigation of his wife for a suspected $10 million bank fraud, nor about reports that he and his wife are lawyering up.

Networks Ignore Loretta Lynch Story in Favor of More Trump-Russia Coverage.  Fired FBI Director James Comey recently testified that Lynch sought to downplay the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server by asking him to refer to it as a "matter," not an investigation.  The mainstream media has largely ignored the Lynch story, while they've continued to extensively report on possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Spot the difference:  CNN vs.  Breitbart edition.  Why would CNN leave out what the stabber actually said in the article plus the person's race?  CBS radio also is not saying what the person said or his name and saying it is impossible to tell if it is terrorism.  Somehow, the other day, when a white person drove a truck into Muslims in London, the media were immediately able to declare it terrorism and say the driver's race.  Isn't that amazing?  I am not a law enforcement officer or a reporter, but my deep analysis of the situation leads me to conclude that the stabbing was a terrorist attack done in the name of Islam.  Why don't the media report what they know instead of intentionally keeping certain information from the public?

Real Scandals The Trump-Obsessed Media Are Ignoring.  In late May, Circa News published a truly bombshell report about how the National Security Agency had been conducting illegal searches on American citizens for years, "routinely violat(ing) American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts."  In addition, the administration "failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall."  Classified documents obtained by Circa showed that "one out of every 20 searches seeking upstream internet data on Americans inside the NSA's so-called Section 702 database violated the safeguards Obama and his intelligence chiefs vowed to follow in 2011." [...] The three network news programs all ignored this report, and it got little attention by any of the other mainstream news outlets.

Something is fishy about USS Fitzgerald story we are getting from the media.  Under no circumstances should a US Navy vessel possibly be damaged by a container ship at sea.  Multiple systems exist to prevent this.  Even CNN is noticing how little we know about the catastrophe that took the lives of seven sailors and almost caused a powerful warship to founder. [...] Brian Joondeph yesterday [6/17/2017] noted how the media have distorted what really happened, by reporting a "collision," as if the ships randomly bumped each other in the fog or something.

Very Fake News:  The Cover-up of Robert Mueller's Rather Unseemly Track Record.  Simply put, [Robert] Mueller can't be trusted to arrive at the truth.  The anthrax letters case proves it.  He should never have received the appointment as special counsel.  [Fred] Barnes' assertion that the deck has been stacked ignores the fact that he and his associates in the Never-Trump movement helped stack the deck.  Why didn't they blow the whistle on Mueller when he was appointed?  Why do they ignore his real record now?

Media Blackout:  Border Patrol Agent Kidnapped, Fingers Cut Off by Assailants.  An off-duty Border Patrol agent suffered serious injuries Friday night [6/9/2017] after an apparent assault in New Mexico.  At about 11 p.m.  Friday, a motorist found the off-duty agent "on the side of the road" in Doña Ana County, New Mexico, according to a news release from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.  "The agent suffered multiple, serious injuries to his head, chest and hands," according to the news release.  "Emergency Medical Services transported the agent to a nearby hospital where he is being treated for his wounds.  The agent is in stable condition."

Border Patrol Agent was Kidnapped, FBI Leads Investigation.  A leaked official document from the El Paso Sector Intelligence and Operations Center reveals that the injured off-duty Border Patrol agent who was discovered on the side of a roadway on June 9, 2017, is believed to have been kidnapped prior to sustaining severe injuries to his "head, chest, and hands."  Breitbart Texas exclusively obtained the document from a trusted source operating under the umbrella of Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Awan Brothers Scandal Creates Fears About Scope Of Data Leak.  Over the past few months, the story of the Awan brothers has been largely ignored by mainstream media.  However, the brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan are at the center of a criminal investigation by U.S. Capital Hill Police.  The Awan brothers were Pakistani IT specialists, whom worked for more than 30 house and senate democrats, as well as Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  The substantial scandal has raised questions about who may have been passed data which the Awans had access to, given Pakistan's history of collaborating with a number of foreign countries who have demonstrated past willingness to influence U.S. politics.

Media Blackout:  No Jail Time for Muslim 'Refugees' Who Raped 5-Year-Old Girl.  The travesty of justice in Idaho is now complete.  In the summer of 2016, a 5-year-old girl was orally and anally raped and urinated upon by three Muslim migrant boys in Twin Falls, Idaho.  Since then, instead of getting justice, the victim's family has been abused by law enforcement and governing authorities as if they were the criminals — because what happened to their little girl contradicts the politically correct narrative about Muslim migrants.  On Tuesday [6/6/2017], the perpetrators were sentenced, and the final injustice was done to this poor girl.

Romanian President:  We're Increasing Our NATO Contribution Because of Trump.  Romanian President Klaus Iohannis said Friday that his country is increasing its contribution to NATO after hearing President Donald Trump's speech last month at NATO headquarters in Brussels.  During a joint press conference at the White House, Trump praised Iohannis for committing to increase Romania's defense spending to NATO from 1.4 percent to two percent, as Trump called for during his speech in Brussels on May 25.  Trump said other nations are also starting to "realize that it's time to pay up."

Nets Blackout the Radical Leftist History of NSA Leaker Reality Winner.  Not long after top-secret documents from the National Security Agency made their way onto the internet news site The Intercept on Monday, the Justice Department arrested NSA contractor Reality Winners.  The 25-year-old veteran worked on a military base in Georgia, but online she had a long history of being heavily Anti-Trump, an apparent social justice warrior, and a supporter of Iran over the U.S. During their evening broadcasts, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) either played down her political attitudes, or outright ignored them as they reported on what she did.  During his report on NBC Nightly News, Justice Correspondent Pete Williams passed along her family's claim that "she wasn't highly political," and Anchor Lester Holt claimed her "motive is a mystery."  But in reality, Winner was anything but silent about her political views.

Update:
NSA leaker Reality Winner will plead guilty after admitting to FBI she smuggled classified documents out of the office.  Reality Winner, the former National Security Agency contractor charged with leaking a classified document to a US news outlet, has decided to plead guilty.  Winner, 26, is scheduled to plead guilty in US District Court on June 26, according to US Department of Justice spokesman Ian Prior.  Online court records show a plea agreement was filed on Thursday [6/21/2018].  Court documents did not indicate what exact charge Winner will plead guilty to, although she was indicted for one count of violating the federal Espionage Act.

Details Emerge on FBI "National Security" Raid in Dearborn Michigan.  Two days ago the FBI, DHS and a joint anti-terrorism command force raided a home in Dearborn Michigan.  At the request of the FBI the media was intentionally ambiguous as to the nature of the raid leading to some speculative reporting. [...] In the aftermath of the raid some details have emerged.  The house raided was occupied by Samer ElDebek, a Lebanese American truck driver with ties to New York.  According to Arab-American News ElDebek lived in New York and left for Lebanon approximately 8 years ago.  He returned to the U.S., and after a time back in New York he relocated to Dearborn about 10 months ago.

Joint Taskforce Raids Dearborn Residence:  May Involve Clintons.  Thursday night, FBI agents, prosecutors from the Department of Justice, and New York Police Department detectives raided a residence at the 7200 block of Jonathon St. (purportedly listed as a subsidiary of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs — a business that employs both Huma Abedin's brother and sister and a business that Huma also worked for in the past).  Tight-lipped officials said that the raid was a "matter of national security" leading some to speculate that agents may have been looking for Hillary Clinton's missing laptop computer or even a thumb drive containing more emails.  However, Intellihub staff has not been able to independently verify the Abedin connection to the residence at this time.

FBI Raids Abedin-linked home in Dearborn, MI — What we know.  FBI agents and Department of Justice prosecutors raided a home linked to former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin in Dearborn, Michigan last week.  The home on Jonathon Street is owned by a subsidiary of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs — an Abedin family business that employs Huma's brother and sister.  Huma had worked for the company in the past.  Agents only said that the raid was "a matter of national security," sparking Internet rumors that Hillary Clinton's missing laptop, thumb drive and deleted emails were the targets.

FBI raid at residential home in Dearborn, Michigan involves national security — report.  Federal agents were seen removing boxes from a home in Dearborn, Michigan, reportedly while investigating a matter of national security.  An FBI spokesperson denied any threat to the public.  The Thursday night [6/1/2017] raid of a home on the 7200 block of Jonathan Street in Dearborn, Michigan, involved a national security issue, but not a planned terror attack, the Detroit Free Press reported.  Agency spokesperson Tim Wiley declined to comment on specifics, but released a statement that described the search as a "law enforcement operation."

Wasserman Schultz Claims She's The Victim Of Another Cyber Attack.  Backers of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign who are suing ex-Democratic National Committee (DNC) head Debbie Wasserman Schultz for allegedly tampering with the primary process filed a legal document Thursday alleging that one of her staffers improperly tried to get information from opposing lawyers, using voice-disguising software to hide their identity.  Caller ID tied the caller to the Florida congresswoman's district office, but her staffers say they didn't make the call, and that she must have been the victim of a technological attack.

The Big Chill: 125 Congress Members Silent On Seth Rich Murder.  WND has asked 125 members of Congress to weigh in on the unsolved murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, and not a single representative has agreed to address the case. [...] Rich, 27, was murdered in Washington, D.C., on July 10, 2016, near his apartment in an affluent neighborhood.  He was shot twice in the back, and his wallet, credit cards, watch and phone were left in his possession.  The Metropolitan Police Department has described it as a "botched robbery."  Private investigators, however, have claimed there is evidence Rich was the source WikiLeaks used to obtain thousands of Democratic National Committee emails released on the eve of the party's presidential nominating convention last July.

The Sound of Silence: 125 Members of Congress Silent About Seth Rich.  It's not just the mainstream media that's been quiet about the murder of Seth Rich.  Members of Congress are remaining tight-lipped as well, leading more to believe that his death is not the bold conspiracy the left is painting it as.  WND reported that they recently asked 125 members of Congress to weigh in about the murder of DNC staffer, Seth Rich.  All the while, the media is largely silent about his death while at the same time labeling anyone concerned as a "conspiracy theorist."

Surprise: The United States is the Leading Reducer of Carbon Emissions.  The Europeans are contemptuous of our decision not to join their One-World Government and submit our economic future to the incomparable IQs of the central planners in Brussels.  And yet, who is doing the most, right here, right now, to reduce carbon emissions and whatever effect they have on global warming?  The United States of America.

President Trump Granted Sick Girl's Wish During Packed Middle East Trip; MSM Completely Ignores!  President Trump just completed his first trip to the Middle East and it was packed!  He went to Israel, Saudi Arabia, Vatican City, Brussels, a Nato summit, and followed that up with a G-7 meeting in Sicily.  But there's one visit you probably missed in the MSM.  Despite President Trump's packed schedule on his 27-hour trip to Israel, he took time out of his busy schedule to visit a 14-year-old girl who was battling cancer.  Oh, say what?  You didn't hear about it?  Oh, that must be because the MSM pretty much blacked it out!

Montana NBC Affiliate Refused to Cover Gianforte 'Body Slam'.  Last night, Montana residents who tuned into their NBC affiliate, KECI, would not have heard the now infamous audio of Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs being roughed up by GOP congressional candidate Greg Gianforte.  The anchor of the evening newscast, Laurel Staples, read a statement that said, in part, "NBC Montana takes pride in reporting only verifiable facts from an independent, reliable sources."  New York has learned that KECI news director Julie Weindel was called by NBC News to see if KECI would cover the story or had any footage of the Gianforte incident that NBC News and its affiliates could use.  A well-placed source familiar with communications between KECI news director Julie Weindel and NBC News says that she was unyielding in her refusal to share any footage she may have had access to, or run a report on the incident.

Why did Trump say that Obama spied on him?  Because he did.  There are two additional extremely important stories that almost all the media is intentionally ignoring.  The murder of a DNC staffer in the summer of 2016 who may have been sharing Democratic Party emails with WikiLeaks, and the hacking of government computers by foreign IT staffers who worked for multiple Democrat House members.  We do know that reporters have some investigative skills left because we have learned that Trump takes two scoops of ice cream while others only take one and that he eats catsup on his steak.  Those are two extremely important stories that they may win Pulitzers for, but a murder of a DNC staffer isn't worthy of reporting.

After Manchester, Growing Concerns In Minneapolis.  The massacre in Manchester this week seems to have prompted attention to the arrest of brothers Abdullah and Majid Alrifahe in north Minneapolis on May 11.  Inside the parked car they were sitting in was a stash of guns, ammo, drone parts and an inert hand grenade. [...] The Star Tribune published a brief article the following week.  The Star Tribune story appears to be drawn directly from the arrest report.  It has not returned to the story since the linked May 15 article.

Look Who Pressured Sean Hannity To Cease His Seth Rich Coverage!  Following Sean Hannity's embarrassing buckling on coverage of the Seth Rich case, sources at Fox News told Big League Politics that he was pressured to relent by one of the Murdochs. [...] Prior to airtime, Hannity had tweeted, "huge announcement tonight about Seth Rich, Trump/Russian Collusion corrupt media, the liberal effort to silence me.  And my future at Fox!"

DNC battling class-action suit alleging Sanders was robbed in 2016.  As Trump administration controversies command media attention, a little-noticed set of lawsuits against the Democratic Party continues to play out in the courts — including one claiming coordination with the Clinton campaign against Bernie Sanders amounted to election fraud.  The case being heard in a Florida courtroom dates back to last summer, when the Democrats were thrown into turmoil following the leak of documents that appeared to show some DNC officials sought to undermine Sanders in the party primary.  Jared Beck, a Harvard law expert, shortly afterward filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of residents of 45 states against the DNC and former chairwomen Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

WHO spends more on travel costs than fighting AIDS.  The World Health Organization is spending more money on the travel bug than on fighting AIDS or malaria, according to a new report.  The UN health agency blows around $200 million a year on travel costs so its honchos can fly business class and stay in five-star hotels — more than what it reserves for battling some of the world's biggest health crisis, the AP reports.

DNC Workers File Lawsuit For Fair Pay.  The Host Committee for the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia has paid out nearly a million dollars to staff members, and local institutions, from leftover money it raised to stage the event.  But, dozens of people who worked in the field elsewhere in the country for Democrats feel shortchanged and are now part of a class action federal lawsuit.  The bonuses ranged from $500 for interns to more than $300,000 for the executive director.

Reuters buries story on Obama spying.  The Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign.  Officials spilled results of that election espionage to Ned Parker, Jonathan Landay, and Warren Strobel of Reuters in exchange for Reuters portraying President Trump as a pawn of Putin.

Some Black Lives Don't Matter.  Another cell-phone video that didn't make it to CNN or MSNBC: Last November, 33-year-old Antwan McNutt beat a man to death with a bottle of liquor on the South Side of Chicago.  Onlookers took video and posted it to Facebook; no one intervened to help. [...] Had a cop beaten a black man to death it would justifiably have been international news, especially if the beating had been caught on video.  Likewise, if a white man had beaten a black man to death, it would have been international news and cause for public mourning and admonition.  But the routine taking of black lives by other blacks generates no interest in the mainstream media.

Why Don't Reporters Care Who Killed The DNC's Seth Rich?  Here's a story that would seem ripe for media bloodhounds to pursue.  A disgruntled insider may have leaked damaging information about his employers, and was later murdered on his way home by two unidentified assailants.  Put President Trump's name somewhere in the mix and it would be the latest scandal-to-end-all-scandals, capturing wall-to-wall coverage, eliciting new calls for independent prosecutors and impeachment, and probably making Jimmy Kimmel cry again.  But since the person involved worked for the Democratic National Committee, it's being ignored by everyone in the press except a cadre of conservative reporters.

The Media Is Ignoring The DNC Lawsuit — Here's Why.  The Democratic National Committee is being sued by a group of Bernie Sanders supporters.  Yet the national media is completely ignoring the story.

The Media Blackout On The DNC Lawsuit Proves That It Is Nuclear.  I had the privilege of interviewing my newest personal hero yesterday, attorney Elizabeth Lee Beck, about her legal team's fraud case against the Democratic National Committee.  One of the many useful insights that this straight-shooting mom on fire brought to light during our conversation was her story about a time she reached out to New York Times reporter Michael Barbaro to get some help cracking through the deep, dark media blackout on this extremely important case. [...] This lawsuit is one of the most significant anti-establishment phenomena happening in America today, and the more life you give it, the more power it will have.

Student editor fired for reporting unapproved truth.  National Review Online got the scoop of the original article on this event from graduate student Andy Ngo, who, until days ago, was the multimedia editor of the Portland State University Vanguard.  NRO chose the stark headline "Fired for Reporting the Truth." And that's a nice editorial decision, focused on the point that Andy Ngo was merely, in fact, reporting the truth.  No more, no less.

Thousands Flee Chicago For Safer Areas Of The Country As America's Third Largest City Becomes A Gang-Infested Wasteland.  Of course we aren't supposed to talk about the fact that this is quietly happening in communities all over America.  This is one of the reasons why there is such a disparity in real estate prices these days.  The wealthy are willing to pay a substantial premium to live with other wealthy people in areas that are far away from all the violence. [...] Would you want to raise your children in an area where this was going on?  Thanks to decades of open borders and unrestrained illegal immigration, gang membership has been absolutely soaring in major cities such as Chicago.  Five years ago the Chicago Crime Commission estimated that there were 150,000 gang members living in the metropolitan area, and by this point that number is certainly far higher.

Soros-Funded Groups Behind Anti-Trump Corporate Targeting Campaign.  The groups leading a campaign targeting corporations that may benefit from Trump administration policies have received millions from liberal billionaire George Soros.  The Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), a New York-based nonprofit consisting of old chapters of the controversial and now-defunct Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), and Make the Road New York (MRNY), a group whose 19,000 dues-paying members are primarily Latino immigrants, have partnered to "name and shame" companies the groups say are working with Trump or "profiting" from his "anti-immigrant, anti-worker" platform, Time magazine first reported.

American media hiding socialism's devastation of Venezuela.  If you want a simple test to determine if a news source is in the fake news business, examine what it writes about Venezuela.  If it writes about the mass starvation, riots, and shortages with no mention of socialism's role in the disaster, then you know that it's fake news provider.  The fate of Venezuela, which has the largest oil reserves in the world, ought to be the final lesson conclusively proving that socialism is a delusion that impoverishes those it purports to help.  An entire nation is starving, unable to feed itself, generate enough electricity, or produce toilet paper.  In the midst of boundless opportunity, its economy is grinding to a halt because of socialism.

What Caused Venezuela's Collapse Is No Mystery — Except To Economically Illiterate Journalists.  When the New York Times wrote about Venezuela's ongoing collapse a year ago, it described how the country was suffering "painful shortages ... even of basic foods," and how "electricity and water are being rationed, and huge areas of the country have spent months with little of either."  Here is how the Times explained the reason for Venezuela's dire situation:  "The growing economic crisis (was) fueled by low prices for oil, the country's main export; a drought that has crippled Venezuela's ability to generate hydroelectric power; and a long decline in manufacturing and agricultural production." There's no mention — not one — of the fact that Hugo Chávez tried to turn Venezuela into a socialist paradise, policies that his successor Nicolás Maduro has continued.  The Times' coverage is par for the course.

Wall Street Journal:  Democrats Trying to Squelch Susan Rice Unmasking Story .  The Wall Street Journal in an editorial over the weekend said Democrats are trying to squelch the story of Susan Rice's unmasking of Trump campaign officials, and the House and Senate Intelligence committees should investigate the former national security adviser.  "The House and Senate Intelligence committees should investigate what she did and why," the Wall Street Journal argued in an April 28 piece.

Canadian media silent on ISIS plot to assassinate Toronto journalist.  On Wednesday's [4/26/2017] show I was joined by Toronto Sun columnist Tarek Fatah who has just become a target for an ISIS assassination plot in India.  Four suspected terrorists are now behind bars facing charges after the foiled plot.

Nets Censor Blockbuster Expose on Obama's Hidden Iran Deal Secrets.  While ABC, CBS and NBC on Monday [4/24/2017] and Tuesday found time to celebrate the return of "easy-going," rested Barack Obama to the public scene, none of them covered the release of a blockbuster expose that reveals the buried secrets of the ex-President's Iran deal giveaway.  Politico senior investigative reporter Josh Meyer authored a more than 7300-word bombshell showing that Obama secretly released 21 Iranian prisoners (not the seven originally claimed), men who were deeply involved in Iran's missile and nuclear program.  On Tuesday morning, despite a combined eight hours of air time, ABC's Good Morning America, CBS This Morning and NBC's Today avoided the topic.

The Watergate Style Break-In That Covered Up Shocking Wave Of Clinton State Department Scandals.  In 2013, it was first reported that the Clinton State Department had called off eight separate internal investigations into alleged misconduct by the diplomatic corps.  When whistleblowers attempted to highlight the wave of coverups, they were subjected to a harassment campaign by the State Department.  The law firm representing the former State Department employee who publicized the misconduct was broken into and key evidence stolen in an apparent effort to further obfuscate efforts to ensure a proper investigation into the crimes was carried out.  The event was not given widespread attention by the media when it first emerged.

Wash Post poll hides:  Trump still beats Clinton, 43%-40%.  A new Washington Post poll that declares President Trump as "the least popular president in modern times," waits until the second to last paragraph to reveal another tidbit:  He'd still beat Hillary Rodham Clinton if the election were held today and in the popular vote, not just Electoral College.  The poll found that Trump's polls continue to be upside down, with a 42 percent approval and 53 percent disapproval.

40-60 Teens Storm BART Train, Rob Passengers.  This didn't get much media play anywhere else, but there was a shocking robbery late Saturday night in San Francisco when a swarm of 40-60 juveniles stormed a BART train, took over a railway car, and robbed the passengers.  The teens exited the train and disappeared into the surrounding East Oakland neighborhood.  And yes, the story in the San Francisco Chronicle somehow fails to mention the race of the wildlings.

A Stunning School Sex Scandal the Media Refuse to Notice.  On April 15, Jackson County, Missouri, prosecutors charged James R. Green Jr., 52, with six counts of second-degree statutory sodomy.  Green was a teacher and coach at a middle school in the suburban North Kansas City School District.  Green's victim was a sixteen-year-old boy.  It appears likely that Green was abusing other boys over a period of at least twelve years in at least two different school districts, and Green's crime is not the half of it. [...] Without digging too hard, I discovered that Green was the sixth employee, all male, busted on sex charges with underage students in the last thirteen months in this one suburban school district.  At least five of those employees were arrested.  The reporting on the sixth was too sketchy to determine.

3 Articles About Trump Legacy Media are Censoring.  But I'm sure their omissions are purely accidental.

25-40 Black Thugs Violently Beat, Knock Out 2 Young White Men in Detroit, Media Coverage Includes No Mention of Race.  Detroit's WXYZ and CBS Local published the story below after 25-40 black thugs beat 2 white young men to an unconscious state in an area known as "Greektown" in Detroit.  The only problem is, they neglected to mention that the criminals in the video who are doing the attacking are young black thugs and that the victims are both white.  They also neglected to mention that the young men who were severely beaten and left unconscious on the street and sidewalks were white.

Turns out Obama was the real Russian stooge.  The circumstantial evidence is mounting that the Kremlin succeeded in infiltrating the US government at the highest levels.  How else to explain a newly elected president looking the other way after an act of Russian aggression?  Agreeing to a farcically one-sided nuclear deal?  Mercilessly mocking the idea that Russia represents our foremost geo-political foe?  Accommodating the illicit nuclear ambitions of a Russian ally?  Welcoming a Russian foothold in the Middle East?  Refusing to provide arms to a sovereign country invaded by Russia?  Diminishing our defenses and pursuing a Moscow-friendly policy of hostility to fossil fuels?  All of these items, of course, refer to things said or done by President Barack Obama.

How the Clintons Sold Out U.S. National Interests to the Putin Regime.  [T]he same folks who spy a KGB agent behind every filing cabinet in Trump's White House are aggressively apathetic about Hillary and Bill Clinton's policies, decisions, and actions that gave aid and comfort to Russia. [...] The shadiest deal that the Clintons hatched with Russia is called Uranium One.  This outrage should mushroom into Hillary and Bill's radioactive Whitewater scandal.  Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining mogul and major Clinton Foundation donor, led a group of investors in an enterprise called Uranium One.  On June 8, 2010, Rosatom, the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation, announced plans to purchase a 51.4 percent stake in the Canadian company, whose international assets included some 20 percent of America's uranium capacity.

Cernovich Explains How He Learned About Susan Rice.  Ever since Mike Cernovich dropped the bombshell report over the weekend outing Obama's National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, as the person behind the unmasking of the identity of various members of Trump's team who were 'incidentally' surveilled during the 2016 campaign, a report which was subsequently confirmed by Eli Lake of Bloomberg earlier this morning, everyone has been wondering who within the Trump White House or the intelligence community supplied him with such a massive scoop.  But, as it turns out, Cernovich didn't need a 'deep throat' within the NSA or CIA for his blockbuster scoop, all he needed was some well-placed sources inside of a couple of America's corrupt mainstream media outlets.  As Cernovich explains below, his sources for the Susan Rice story were actually folks working at Bloomberg and the New York Times who revealed that both Eli Lake (Bloomberg) and Maggie Haberman (NYT) were sitting on the Susan Rice story in order to protect the Obama administration.

Real Collusion: the Clinton and Podesta Record.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, along with husband Bill, in exchange for donations, gave nuclear power Russia and Putin control of 20 percent of the world's uranium supply. [...] Yet neither congressional Democrats, who accuse Trump and Flynn of being too cozy with Moscow, nor their wholly owned subsidiary, the mainstream media, are eager to talk about the Clinton uranium deals with Russia.  They are more curious about an illegally released transcript of an illegally monitored conversation.

So how did the California drought end?  We were told that the multi-year California drought was caused by humans, fossil fuels and CO2.  So how did it end? [...] What we have now is officials scrambling to repair the Oroville Dam, now bursting at the seams with water, in some very undrought-like conditions that nevertheless hasn't been trumpeted much as the end of the drought.

CNN hammers Fox News for covering alleged gang rape of 14-year-old by illegal immigrant.  CNN's Brian Stelter condemned Fox News for covering the alleged gang rape of a 14-year-old Maryland high school student by at least one illegal immigrant.  He said coverage of rape is normally reserved for the local news and suggested Fox News is only covering this one because of the ongoing debate about illegal immigration.

Networks censor rape story involving illegal immigrant.  The "big three" networks — ABC, CBS, and NBC — continued their shameful blackout into Wednesday night of the horrifying rape of a teenage girl in a Maryland high school bathroom, allegedly by two men, including one who police say is in the U.S. illegally.  Instead, the pathetic liberal media that's shown no interest in the Rockville High School case complied with Rolling Stone in giving more than 10 minutes of coverage in two days to the fake 2014 claim that a University of Virginia fraternity gang-raped a female student.

Obama's College Grades [are] More Secure Than State Secrets & Trump's Tax Return.  How is it that something as bland as an office seeker's academic records can remain inaccessible for almost a decade, but critical U.S. state secrets, and President Trump's tax return can be made available within months of his election?  It must be that Barack Obama's ideological soul mates, rather than risk embarrassing him with the kinds of academic revelations they'd routinely dug up on previous presidential candidates, chose to ignore any inclination towards investigative journalism.  Apparently they've saved the latter mentioned, pent up "journalistic curiosity", for their arch adversary, Donald J. Trump.

Hawaii judge ruling against Trump comes days after 'surprise' visit by Obama.  Kyle Becker works at the Independent Journal Review (IJR) with the title of lead editor and director of viral media.  Today [3/16/2017] he posted a story with this headline:  "Ex-President Obama Made 'Surprise Visit' to Hawaii, Just Days Before Judge Issued Travel Ban Ruling."  Though that headline seems tightly factual, it was filed under the banner of "OPINION."  But:  What's so opinionated about pointing out that "Former President Barack Obama made a 'surprise visit' to Oahu this week, just days ahead of a controversial ruling on President Trump's new travel ban executive order issued by a Hawaiian judge."?

The Media Hides Its Own Disapproval Rating.  The latest poll by USA Today and Suffolk University carried some eye-opening numbers about public disapproval of the media's aggressive attempts to run the country.  It found that President Trump has a 47% approval rating and that 44% disapprove of him.  That's not surprising.  The media talk about his unpopularity all the time.  But here's what they don't talk about:  their own numbers.  Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of their job performance.  A whopping 50% have an unfavorable opinion.

52% Voters Approve Trump Job Performance — Stat Buried in 2nd-to-Last Graph of Story.  A Politico/Morning Consult poll released on Wednesday [3/15/2017] shows 52 percent of voters approve of President Donald Trump's job performance, but that statistic is in the second-to-last paragraph of the Politico article about the poll.

Plot thickens in probe of House IT contractors.  A criminal investigation into IT contractors employed by dozens of House Democrats is sparking broader concerns about continuing access to sensitive government emails, amid new allegations of illicit activity beyond Capitol Hill.  The investigation was announced last month by the U.S. Capitol Police and purportedly focuses on the contractors' access to House computers and whether they took hardware and made questionable IT-related purchases.  A police spokesman, while declining to go into detail, told Fox News this week that the case remains opens and focuses on "the actions of House IT support staff."  But a high-level House staffer acknowledged Monday [3/13/2017] to Fox News that the probe has raised concerns about emails being hacked.

Muslim Hacking Suspects Could Read Every Email Dozens Of Congressmen Sent And Received.  Imran Awan bullied central IT to bend the rules for him so there wouldn't be a paper trail about the unusually high permissions he was requesting.  And their actions were not logged, so members have no way of knowing what information they may have taken, the central IT employee said.  Awan ran technology for multiple House Democrats, and soon four of his relatives — including brothers Abid and Jamal — appeared on the payroll of dozens of other members, collecting $4 million in taxpayer funds since 2010.  U.S. Capitol Police named him and his relatives as subjects of a criminal probe on Feb. 2, and banned them from the complex's computer networks.  But members of Congress for whom they worked have downplayed their access or publicly ignored the issue.

House Hacking Suspects Could Read Every Email Dozens Of Congressmen Sent And Received.  Congressional IT staffers who are the subject of a criminal investigation into misusing their positions had full access to members' "correspondence, emails, confidential files," and there was almost no tracking of what they did, a former House technology worker said.  Imran Awan bullied central IT to bend the rules for him so there wouldn't be a paper trail about the unusually high permissions he was requesting.  And their actions were not logged, so members have no way of knowing what information they may have taken, the central IT employee said.

Compromised: Suspect In House IT Security Probe Also Had Access To DNC Emails.  Imran Awan — the lead suspect in a criminal probe into breaches of House of Representatives information security systems — possessed the password to an iPad used by then-Democratic National Committee Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz when DNC emails were given to WikiLeaks, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.  Wasserman Schultz resigned the DNC post in the wake of WikiLeaks posting damaging internal emails, blaming the scandal on hacking by Russians.  Imran and his family members, all of whom worked as IT professionals for members of Congress, were banned from the House network Feb. 2, 2017, by the House Sergeant at Arms, but Wasserman Schultz has declined to fire him and circumvented the ban by having him "advise" her office.  WikiLeaks emails show that although Imran was employed by her taxpayer-funded House office, the Florida Democrat's world — and iPad — mixed DNC, House and campaign business, and that Imran was on call for, and on a first-name basis with, top DNC staff.

Fix Is In:  House Committee on 'Russian Hacking' Includes Only DNC-Hired Tech Experts.  A list of witnesses scheduled to appear at a House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Open Hearing on "Russian Active Measures" contains a glaring problem:  the only technical experts scheduled to testify are from CrowdStrike.  CrowdStrike is a firm hired by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and has become the primary source of the narrative about "Russian hacking" of the 2016 election and has acted as a mouthpiece for the Democrats since last June.

Pakistani Computer Techs Now Under Criminal Investigation Hired By Democrats Took $100,000 From Iraqi Operatives.  The scandal over a group of computer technicians hired by a long list of Congressional Democrats — including the former head of the Democrat National Committee — is growing deeper by the week.  The latest is that the three Pakistani immigrants hired to maintain the Congressmen's computers were the recipients of a mysterious $100,000 pay off from an Iraqi politician.  And through it all the Old Media complex is ignoring the whole story.  Early this month news broke that Congressional Information Technology (IT) staffers Imran Awan, and his brothers, Jamal and Abid — all from Pakistan — had been working for a list of highly placed Democrat Congressmen.  The team held top clearance status with administrator level access to the computer network of the House of Representatives.  The three are now the subject of a criminal investigation after it was discovered that congressional information was being copied to a server outside of the House computer system.  The three are suspected of improperly accessing information and stealing congressional property.

President Obama Was Apparently A Slave Driver Of Illegal Aliens.  [Scroll down]  DiSalvo is Nina DiSalvo, executive director of Towards Justice, a Colorado-based nonprofit group that represents low-wage workers, including undocumented immigrants.  There's no mention in the article as to whether or not her group has anything to do with the actual suit.  But, notice this had to be turned into something about Trump.  Because Trump Derangement Syndrome runs strong at the Washington Post, and they couldn't find it in themselves to slam Obama.  The word "Obama" barely appears in the article.  It's like they forgot who was president from 2009 up to when the suit was filed.

One of the 'Day Without a Woman' protest organizers is a convicted terrorist.  Upon further investigation, it seems there are participants in these protests who should not even be in the United States.  Rasmea Yousef Odeh is a Palestinian woman who became a U.S. citizen in 2004.  She had been living in the U.S. comfortably until 2014, when she was convicted of immigration fraud.  It turns out that Odeh had lied about her past in order to secure citizenship in the United States.  In 1970, she was convicted of being a part of a terrorist bombing in Israel that killed two students.  She served just 10 years in prison before she decided to come on over to the U.S.

Meet the DNC's New Organizer in Chief.  The election of a new chair of the Democratic National Committee on Saturday was clearly an inside-baseball affair.  Only 17 percent of Democratic voters had even heard it was happening, according to a new Morning Consult poll. [...] In reality, both candidates are hard-core progressives committed to the party's scorched-earth opposition to the Trump administration.

Democrats Delayed Firing Pakistani IT 'Hackers' Because They Were Muslim.  A month ago, three Muslim American brothers who managed office IT were barred from congressional computers (on suspicion that they accessed computers without permission). While many congressmen immediately relieved them of their duties, two House Democrats decided to delay the firing (until today) because their Muslim background, some with ties to Pakistan, could make them easy targets for false charges.  As we previously reported, the three brothers (Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan) who managed office IT for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and other lawmakers were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives Thursday, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

Those 3 muslim Brothers Arrested for Spying on Trump Were Hired by Obama.  Folks, I am sure you heard about the 3 Muslim brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan that were accessing computers without the authority to do so, and may have seen classified information.  These three men were overpaid, getting at least $160,000 and one of them had a criminal background.  Yet, Obama hired them.

Did Democrats Aid and Abet Terrorists Seeking American Secrets?  Why isn't the MSM interested in the Awan Brothers:  the three IT specialists fired for rooting through House Democrats' sensitive files?

Chilling New Scandal Hits House Democrats; Media Stays Silent.  The Democrats are in another pickle that has to do with technology after shady congressional aides have been caught taking $100,000 from an Iraqi politician; all while they still had administrator level access to the House computer network, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation's Investigative Group which analyzed court documents.

Exclusive: House Dem IT Guys In Security Probe Secretly Took $100K In Iraqi Money.  Rogue congressional staffers took $100,000 from an Iraqi politician while they had administrator-level access to the House of Representatives' computer network, according to court documents examined by The Daily Caller News Foundation's Investigative Group.  The money was a loan from Dr. Ali al-Attar, an Iraqi political figure, and was funneled through a company with "impossible"-to-decipher financial transactions that the congressional information technology (IT) staffers controlled.  Imran Awan, ringleader of the group that includes his brothers Abid and Jamal, has provided IT services since 2005 for Florida Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman.  The brothers are from Pakistan.

Fake News:  Politico Scrubs Soros Ties to Anti-Trump Group Trying to Mobilize Nationwide Protests.  A Politico profile of a new anti-Trump protest movement calling itself "Indivisible" reported that "conservatives" are "spreading unfounded rumors" that the group is "being driven by wealthy donors like George Soros."  Politico, however, seemingly failed to do even the most minimal research on the Indivisible leaders cited in the news outlet's own profile.  Some of those personalities are openly associated with groups financed by Soros.

Yo, CNN: Sweden Sends Back a Staggering Amount of Refugees — Is THAT 'News?  It's 2017, and after years of refugees flooding European borders, Sweden is taking a step back from their 'open borders' stance.  Last year, Sweden said that it was going to carefully examine refugee applications and forcibly return some of the migrants that have claimed refugee status.  How many?  A staggering 80,000.

ICE Calls Out CNN, NBC, Etc., For "False, Dangerous & Irresponsible" Fake News Reporting.  President Trump told a gathering of news media yesterday, namely the Mainstream Media that is not accustomed to having its status questioned, that they were constantly perpetrating fakes news to create an intended reaction from the American people.  ICE, the nation's largest immigration enforcement agency, just did the very same thing, calling out the media for its fabricated/highly slanted coverage of recent immigration raids and reminding everyone that under previous administration these raids were far more numerous — and the media then said NOTHING.

Here's the Bombshell Hillary/Russia Uranium Story that the Media Refused to Cover.  During his marathon press conference on Thursday afternoon [2/16/2017], President Donald Trump lashed out at the media for it's failure to adequately cover a 2015 bombshell report about then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  The report in question suggested that Secretary Clinton allowed 20% of the United States's Uranium production capacity to be acquired by Russian interests while at the same time millions of dollars in cash flowed not only to the Clinton foundation, but also directly into the pockets of Bill and Hillary. [...] The story to which Trump was referring was originally reported on by The New York Times.  However, as with most stories that were unflattering to Mrs. Clinton, the media quickly lost interest.

The Marco Rubio knockdown of Elizabeth Warren no liberal media outlet will cover.  In a speech you didn't hear because it doesn't make for good TV or reaffirm the liberal narrative, Senator Marco Rubio, R-Fla. warned that tolerating Warren's brand of slanderous rhetoric on the floor of the U.S. Senate undermines the institution and weakens our republic.  "I want people to think about our politics here today in America," Rubio exhorted his colleagues.  "Because I'm telling you guys, I don't know of a single nation in the history of the world that's been able to solve its problems when half the people in the country absolutely hate the other half of people in that country."

Jeh Johnson Hyped Denying Visa-Free Travel to Those Who Visited NYT's '7 Muslim Countries'.  In multiple congressional testimonies last year, then-Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson hyped the action he was taking — under a law signed by President Barack Obama — to deny visa-free travel to the United States to citizens of Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries who had visited Syria, Sudan, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Somalia or Libya.  "Foreign terrorist travel, the prospect of foreign terrorist travel to our homeland keeps me up at night," Johnson, for example, testified in the House Homeland Security Committee on July 14, 2014.

European Conservative Parties Are Not 'Far Right'.  When Euro-conservatives give speeches, Donald Trump gets tremendous applause.  Trump's victory in the U.S. has given courage to tens of millions of Europeans, who have been afraid to speak out.  Some have been jailed, and all have been smeared in the public media.  But they are not going to take it anymore.  You'll never, ever read this in the New York Times.  Or in the WaPo.  Or in the highly concentrated "news" cartel that controls what most Americans hear.  Marxo-jihadist globalism is always the same, here and there.  And just like here, ordinary people are outraged and ready to take to the streets.  They are not fascists, and they are certainly not Nazis.  They are not totalitarians of any kind at all.

Zogby: Voters Support President Trump Executive Orders.  Zogby Analytics conducted a survey of voters in an attempt to cut through the chaff and disinformation evident in contradictory media polling.  Here's their finding: [...]

51% Back Trump's Temporary Ban On Refugees — IBD/TIPP Poll.  Despite almost nonstop criticism from politicians, prominent business leaders and the media over President Trump's decision to suspend refugees for 120 days, the public still supports Trump by a margin of 51% to 48%, according to the latest IBD/TIPP poll.

The U.S. military's stats on deadly airstrikes are wrong.  Thousands have gone unreported.  The American military has failed to publicly disclose potentially thousands of lethal airstrikes conducted over several years in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, a Military Times investigation has revealed.  The enormous data gap raises serious doubts about transparency in reported progress against the Islamic State, al-Qaida and the Taliban, and calls into question the accuracy of other Defense Department disclosures documenting everything from costs to casualty counts.

Polls Show Public Backs Trump's Travel Ban.  After nearly a week of nonstop protests and vicious denunciations, the unhinged opponents of President Trump's terror-related travel suspension have managed to sway almost no one.  Three polls show that far more Americans support Trump's executive order than oppose it.  If you haven't heard of these polls, don't kick yourself.  The mainstream press isn't exactly parading them around.

Muslim Men Raped 11-Year-Old Girl, Shout "Allahu Akbar" at Sentencing, Girl Had Baby at 12.  It's shocking that the mainstream media does not cover this story as it should.  It's a case of political correctness and a fear of "racism" destroyed the lives of over 1,400 young girls.  Since our press does not bring us much news from the UK, you probably haven't heard about the case of over 1,400 young white working class girls who were used for sex by a group of older Pakistani Muslim men.

Ohio State University Features Black Communist.  Donald Trump's adviser Stephen K. Bannon told the truth, but not the whole truth, when he described the media as the main opposition to President Trump.  He neglected to mention academia as another important bastion for anti-Trump organizing and action.  Speaking at the January 21 so-called Women's March on Washington, communist Angela Davis declared, "The next 1,459 days of the Trump administration will be 1,459 days of resistance:  resistance on the ground, resistance in the classrooms, resistance on the job, resistance in our art and in our music."  (Our media somehow overlooked the significance of Davis, a life-long unrepentant communist, as a speaker and co-chair of the event.)

Friendly Reminder:  Obama Selected The List Of Muslim Countries in Trump's Executive Order.  As the Left and some Republicans lose their minds over President Donald J. Trump's executive order on immigration, let's not forget that the list of concerned countries that the Trump administration outlined in the order is based on the one signed into law by the former Obama administration.

Trump: Hey media, you hear about this big pro-life march?  The mainstream media is finding it harder and harder to ignore an annual pro-life march, and it doesn't help when the U.S. president calls them out.

Alliance for Fair Coverage of Life Issues to News Networks: 'Cover the March for Life!'  The Alliance for Fair Coverage of Life Issues called on the news networks to cover this Friday's [1/27/2017] annual March for Life, which brings in hundreds of thousands of marchers, and to "cover it fairly" given the extensive coverage the media gave to the pro-abortion "Women's March on Washington" on Jan. 21.  "This Friday is a true test for the media," said Alliance member Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center.  "They provided massive, and fawning coverage of the pro-abortion 'Women's March' just four days ago.  The media's coverage of the 'March for Life' in two days, both in time and tone, will tell you everything you need to know about their support for abortion."

Trump-hating flag burners in Iowa absolutely, positively foiled.  The Supreme Court may rule that flag-burning is protected expression under the First Amendment, but that doesn't mean that it is acceptable to endanger ordinary citizens, who also have rights to express themselves.  In this case, with a fire extinguisher.  The national media is much less interested in what happens in Iowa City, Iowa than it is in New York, D.C., Los Angeles, and other parts of the Blue Bubble.  So we rely on the Iowa City Press-Citizen to learn about what happened when a couple of America-hating, Trump-hating protesters set multiple versions of Old Glory ablaze.

ABC Omits from Transcript Trump Shutting Down Muir on March for Life.  On Thursday afternoon, our friends at RedState flagged this peculiar development that ABC News transcript excluded an exchange from the David Muir-President Trump interview where Trump scolded Muir for the media's lack of coverage of the March for Life versus the Women's March on Washington.  With an eagle eye for this detail, RedState's "Streiff" provided a generous nod to Nicholas Fondacaro's blog from Wednesday night and concluded it'd be pertinent to check out the full transcript.  [Video clip]

Here's One Poll The Press Doesn't Want You To See.  [A recent Gallup] poll found that Obama's overall average approval rating was a dismal 47.9%.  Only three presidents scored worse than Obama since Gallup started doing these surveys in 1945:  never-elected Gerald Ford (47.2%), one-termer Jimmy Carter (45.4%), and Harry Truman (45.4%).  Obama even did worse overall than Richard Nixon, whose average approval was 49%, and was less popular overall than George W. Bush, who got an average 49.4%.  That sounds newsworthy, doesn't it?  But you'd never know this if you relied on the mainstream press for information.  That's because not one of them reported on Gallup's finding.

Flashback: WaPo Publishes Study That Claims Millions of Illegal Aliens Vote.  The Worst People In the World (our media) are choosing to completely ignore a 2014 study that claimed millions of illegals might indeed be voting.  This is not some crank study.  No less than the leftwing Washington Post found it worthy enough to publish just a little over two years ago.

Associated Press Whitewashes Inauguration Protesters.  This is what yesterday's "protests" against the Trump inauguration looked like:  [Video clip]  The "protesters" also set a limousine on fire and threw concrete blocks at police officers, yelling "put the pigs in the ground."  None of this is surprising.  This is what leftist protesters — read, criminals — always do.

Media Blackout as yet another Somali Muslim so-called 'refugee' is convicted of attempting to sexually assault a special-needs disabled woman.  Liban Mohamed, 39, was in the the United States for only about a week when he tried to force himself on a 31-year-old woman with severe disabilities in Aberdeen, South Dakota.  He is not a U.S. citizen, but whether he will be deported in the wake of his conviction remains unclear.

NAACP President Busted for Dealing Coke:  Media Ignores.  The President of the NAACP getting busted for coke to make his child support payments apparently isn't news.  You're not going to hear about this one from anywhere in the major media — maybe not even in Muncie.  Now if he was the pastor the large evangelical church, we suspect that would be different.

Media bias!  Mass persecution of Christians underreported.  A new report finds a Christian is killed every six minutes — and these aren't random victims of wars, and they're not simply people in the wrong place at the wrong time.  They're being slaughtered for their faith.

Is Burning Whites the New 'Knock Out' Game for Blacks?  Scroll down to see the stories of 16 white people that were burned by blacks in the last few years.  With the endless media frenzy focused on Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin, you will not hear about most of these from the mainstream media.  Why?  Because they are white.  With the recent gruesome murder of Jessica Chambers, there is widespread speculation and argument as to whether her killer was black or white.  Jessica, a 19 year old from Mississippi, was found walking, engulfed in flames after her attackers put lighter fluid in her mouth and lit her on fire.  The attack happened on December 6, in Mississippi.  While we wait for the police to make an arrest, we want to introduce you to 16 people that the media virtually ignored.

Chicago Tribune pushes racist Facebook hate crime to page 6.  Media bias is alive and well in Chicago.  A top news story is the vicious attack allegedly by four young blacks against a young white man on Chicago's West Side is top fare on Fox News, conservative talk radio, but in the Chicago Tribune Thursday's print edition the story was buried on page six of section one.  Yep, page six. [...] Page six.  This sad story belongs on the front page.

Absolutely Stunning — Leaked Audio of Secretary Kerry Reveals President Obama Intentionally Allowed Rise of ISIS.  There are moments within investigative research when your jaw can stand agape as you recognize the scope of what you are reading or hearing.  A brutally down-played audio of Secretary John Kerry is just such an occasion. [...] This evidence within this single story would/should forever remove any credibility toward the U.S. foreign policy under President Obama.  It also destroys the credibility of a large number of well known republicans.

Obama's homosexual bundler arrested for child rape.  A "bundler" is someone who not just donates money to a politician or political campaign, but solicits and "bundles" donations from other donors into a substantial sum.  As such, bundlers perform an important service for politicians.  If a "bundler" for Trump is arrested for pedophilia, it would be all over the MSM, aka the Fake Media.

Top Ten Most Under Reported Stories of 2016.  [#5] The failure of the false prosecutions:  The media have never taken a full accounting of how the insufferable false narratives spurred by anti-police, and anti-law-and-order social justice movements have collapsed when faced with sunlight of actual evidence.  The attempts to prosecute the transparently innocent began with Zimmerman ('12), continued with Darren Wilson (Ferguson '14) and culminated with the Baltimore Six trials ('16).  In each example the fraud within the prosecution could not withstand the sunlight of the actual legal system.  Think about how many millions were spent on investigations and cases that were constructed entirely by fraud and deceit, and simultaneously promoted by the ideological broadcasts of the media.  Stunningly under reported.

Justice Department declines to prosecute VA employees who defrauded $400k, and who still have jobs.  The mainstream media have been ignoring a story of outrageous abuse by federal employees that has just been rubber-stamped by Loretta Lynch's prosecutors at the D.C. U.S. attorney's office.  The first report was carried by the Houston Chronicle on Tuesday and picked up by the Washington Examiner yesterday.  It is enough to make any taxpayer's blood boil and has great potential as a news story.  Yet for the moment, it exists in one Texas city and the conservative blogosphere only.

Teenagers charged in Tennessee wildfires that killed 14.  Two juveniles have been charged with starting the historic wildfires that killed more than a dozen people in Tennessee this month, authorities said Wednesday.  Investigators said the teenagers were arrested and charged with aggravated arson.  Neither their names, ages or genders were disclosed, though.

The Editor says...
This story has dropped off the national media radar rather suddenly.  It seems odd that two people can start a fire that kills several people and causes half a billion dollars in damages, and yet we may never know their names or see their faces because they're "juveniles."  This leads me to believe the suspects are either black or Muslim.

Media Blackout On Obama's Last-Minute Civil Rights Appointments.  Liberal news outlets like The New York Times, The Washington Post and CNN are keeping their readers in the dark about two aggressive appointments to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights made by President Obama with just weeks remaining in his presidency.  In addition to questions surrounding the appointees themselves, the move by Obama effectively blocks President-elect Donald Trump from any appointments to the eight-person commission until 2020, when Trump would be up for re-election.

No Headline among Liberal Media Noted that Hillary Clinton Lost 5 Electors, Compared to 2 for Trump.  ABC News, CNN, CBS News and NBC News did not run headlines that outlined how Hillary Clinton, the losing presidential candidate for the Democratic Party, lost more electors than Donald Trump.  The media built up the narrative that Trump would lose electors, not Clinton, and as a result, have an egg on their face.

Newsrooms are sanitizing that Ivanka harassment story.  Two men were ejected from a JetBlue flight Thursday for reportedly harassing Ivanka Trump and her three children.  We know about the alleged incident because one of the men tweeted about it in real-time, and JetBlue confirmed in a statement that there was indeed a "conflict" aboard one of its planes.  But despite the airline's statement, and the fact that one of the men involved specifically used the word "harass," some headlines have sanitized the reported incident to the point where it's basically a story about nothing.

Two Democrat Judges Removed From Office For "Case-Fixing Schemes".  In what should be national news, two Democrat judges were removed from office for "case-fixing schemes."  One unethically intervened in cases, according to the Pennsylvania Court of Judicial Discipline.  The other was "guilty of seven violations of judicial ethics rules, including bringing the court into disrepute," according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.  Guess why you're not hearing about this on the national news?  The two judges are Democrats.

Why won't mainstream media mention all the death and economic threats aimed at Trump Electors?  Here are some of the news coverage of the death threats received by electors who are voting for Trump.  I can't find these stories in places such as the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, and USA Today.

A Jerusalem church was destroyed by Muslims two weeks ago.  No one reported it.  Here is how the church described the event:  ["]The team went to lunch and the terrorist came in through the window under the direction of Hussam.  When the police came 'Alaa, the extremeist' told them 'i ask him to remodel.'  He took all our personal items, musical instruments, camera equipment, and many computers.  They burnt our bibles and made huge fires with our personal items from the church.["]

Cop Fatally Shoots Unarmed 73-Year-Old Grandfather.  If what happened to Francisco Serna had happened to a black person, there would be riots, looting, and arson in the streets of Bakersfield, CA.  Police shot and killed the unarmed 73-year-old grandfather, who is suffering from dementia, for reasons known only to the Bakersfield PD.  [Indeed], there are riots when a black cop shoots an armed black suspect, but somehow this shooting barely gets a mention in the news.

Liberal Media Ignores Foreign Support For Hillary In The Election.  The leftist mainstream media, which has their knickers in a twist because Trump won the election, must nurse their gaping political wounds by fabricating stories claiming Russia meddled with our elections by hacking DNC accounts.

Black Man Murders 14yo White Boy in Philly, National Media Doesn't Care.  A man has been charged in the shooting death of 14-year-old Ian Wilsey.  Nineteen-year-old Samir Price is charged with murder, robbery and gun charges.  Price turned himself in at the Homicide Unit on Tuesday [12/6/2016].  A second suspect remains on the loose.

German State Media Defends Not Reporting Girl Raped and Murdered by 'Refugee'.  The Tagesschau show, produced by ARD, the world's largest public broadcaster, claimed that the story was "too regional". Others, however, blame political correctness and an establishment desire to silence criticism of mass migration.  Last week's revelation that 19-year-old Maria Ladenburger — a medical student, migrant home volunteer, and daughter of a prominent European Union (EU) official — was attacked and killed by a recently-arrived 17-year-old migrant shocked the nation.  Despite having a budget of €6.5 billion and 20,617 employees, the public broadcaster decided not to allocate resources to bringing the story to national attention.

'People Have To Die': Unhinged Leftist Protests Greeted by Media Silence.  Leftist groups wasted no time organizing protests in cities and campuses across the country, with marchers cursing the election of Donald Trump and yelling slogans such as "Not my President."  In some cases, the protesters went beyond mere strident rhetoric.  They turned into mobs, threatening and assaulting people whom they thought were Trump supporters.  They threw bottles at police.  They set fires and defaced property.  While President Obama and Hillary Clinton have made general calls for unity in the wake of the election, they have not personally condemned the out-of-control mob rule popping up across the country.  Mainstream media has also largely downplayed the violence and threats.  They have mostly reported the protests as peaceful, spontaneous expressions of dissent, even though there was nothing spontaneous about these protests.  Far left groups such as Black Lives Matter and Socialist Alternative used social media to rally their faithful into the streets.

CBS Withholds Trump Anti-Violence Soundbite for Two Days.  As many people have pointed out, the various anti-Trump riots and protests are being coordinated by professional left-wing provocateurs and organizations like MoveOn.Org.  We pointed out earlier last week the protests themselves were transparently timed (evening prior to Trump White House visit) to provide Obama leverage, and to weaken/undermine the risk from a looming Trump presidency.  CBS withholding the Trump soundbite 48 hours allowed the media to continue selling a false narrative and assigning riot/protest blame toward President-Elect Trump.  In essence, David Rhodes was simply helping his brother Ben in the White House.

Why did CBS News Not Cover 'Black Lives Matter' Vandalism at Trump's DC Hotel?  In searching the internal search engines at ABC News, CNN, CBS News, and NBC News, in addition to search terms on Google "Trump Tower vandalism [news outlet name]," we could not find a single CBS News article on the vandalism of Donald Trump's newly-opened Washington D.C. hotel.

Hillary Booed Off Stage On Last Day Of Campaign By Latinos In Los Angeles.  If the mainstream media has you nervous about how Trump is doing with Latinos, suggesting that they fall closer to Hillary, maybe you shouldn't worry.  In LA, Latinos booed her off stage only moments after she took the mic.

Bozell & Graham:  Media blackout exposes corrupt media.  While most of America was transfixed by Game 7 of the World Series, Fox News Channel was doggedly pursuing a new story:  The FBI's probe into pay-for-play schemes at the Clinton Foundation and the State Department has been far more expansive than anyone reported so far and has been going on for more than a year.  FBI sources even warned there could be indictments down the road.  Then, The Wall Street Journal broke another new story online, saying, "Secret recordings of a suspect talking about the Clinton Foundation fueled an internal battle between FBI agents who wanted to pursue the case and corruption prosecutors who viewed the statements as worthless hearsay."  Senior officials wanted to tell FBI agents to "stand down" from a Clinton Foundation probe.  That's two nuclear explosions in one night.  What was the reaction from the news media?  Crickets.

Nets Ignore Massive Bombshell on FBI Investigation Into Clinton Corruption.  On Wednesday evening [11/2/2016], Fox News Special Report anchor Bret Baier led off his show with explosive breaking news revealing an extensive ongoing FBI investigation into the corruption scandals swirling around Hillary Clinton, with bureau agents looking into everything from newly discovered e-mails to pay for play allegations against the Clinton Foundation.  Despite the bombshell coming just days before election day, the broadcast networks have yet to touch the story.

How Is DOJ Feud Over Clinton Foundation Scandal Just a Fox News/Wall Street Journal Story?  Fox News has put into heavy rotation the internal fight inside the FBI and Justice Department over an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.  Devlin Barrett at The Wall Street Journal also filed a story last night.  The liberal media reaction was:  "What breaking story?"  Will the liberal media just act like the Democratic servants they look like in the Wikileaks emails and continue to ignore these revelations as something on the Murdoch Machine thinks is news?

The Anatomy Of A Press Cover-Up.  [Scroll down]  This has been a constant theme in coverage of the WikiLeaks release of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta's by major liberal news outlets, to ignore the actual newsworthy content in the release and focus on boring process stories.  The Washington Post has not written on Hillary Clinton telling Goldman Sachs that American allies fund terrorists and opposition to immigration is "un-American."  The same is true at The New York Times.  When national political correspondent Jonathan Martin was asked on Twitter why he isn't covering WikiLeaks, he replied saying that a WikiLeaks story was on the front page the day before.

Big 3 Morning Shows Silent on Destruction of Trump's Walk of Fame Star.  According to Deadline, Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star was shattered this morning [10/26/2016] by a vandal dressed as a construction worker.  But the morning shows failed to report the news.  Although Trump's star has been defaced multiple times this year, this is the first instance of heavy damage.  Jamie Otis smashed the star early Wednesday morning when Hollywood Boulevard was nearly empty.  When Deadline interviewed him, Otis revealed that he had planned to remove the star and auction it; however, after taking a beating, the star was pulverized.

Media's response to major party nominee being implicated in felony:  Silence.  A man closely associated with the Clinton campaign and the DNC — not knowing he's being recorded, of course — admits that Hillary is illegally giving orders for idiotic hijinks to go on at Donald Trump rallies.  The point is not how stupid the whole Donald Duck thing is (and it's very stupid indeed).  The point is that a candidate cannot be giving orders to a Super PAC to do things.  That's a felony violation of campaign law.

Political Violence, Media Corruption, the Second Amendment.  Thanks to James O'Keefe's Project Veritas, we now have video proof that high-ranking Democrat operatives directly connected to the highest-ranking Democrats in the land (the Clintons, the DNC, marriage to a sitting congresswoman) have engaged in vote fraud and the orchestration of violence at Donald Trump's campaign events.  And our elite, political media doesn't care.

Press grudgingly admit Obamacare hikes.  Mainstream media outlets were slow to cover the Obama administration's Monday [10/24/2016] announcement of a 25 percent average increase in federal Obamacare premiums for 2017, and for some, the news wasn't worth covering at all.  The Department of Health and Human Services announced Monday at 5 p.m. that in addition to the price increase, there would be 36 percent fewer plans to choose from.  When data was used for the three state-run exchanges for which data was available, the average price increase dropped just a little, to 22 percent.  HHS released the news at 5 p.m., but even hours later, no trace of the story could be found on the websites of NBC News or MSNBC.

Hillary's Plot Against America.  What is Hillary Clinton plotting should she become President?  Wikileaks revealed an email that is a smoking gun.  Despite a massive media blackout, some of the emails see the light of day on social and conservative media.  Hillary Clinton wrote an email to senior policy advisor Ann O'Leary that disclosed she was working, behind the scenes (naturally since she has a public persona — or multiple ones, actually — and a private one) to undermine the Affordable Care Act.

Hillary Ally Gave $$$ to Wife of FBI Agent on Email Probe, Nets Censor.  Democratic Governor Terry McAullife's PAC donated almost $500,000 to the wife of an FBI agent leading the probe into Hillary Clinton's e-mail scandal.  This stunning revelation, despite being reported in a front page story in Monday's [10/24/2016] edition of The Wall Street Journal, didn't receive any time on the Big Three network (ABC, CBS, NBC) morning shows.

Nets Blackout Damaging Undercover Video Exposing Underhanded Liberals.  Late Monday [10/17/2016] Project Veritas, a conservative activist organization, dropped a series of videos exposing the underhanded tactics of liberal political operatives, which has already has led to people losing their jobs.  "Tonight, a rare look inside the dark side of politics," reported Fox News' Bret Baier Tuesday on Special Report, "A conservative group is shining some light on how pro-Hillary Clinton forces at least plotted to circumvent election law and disrupt events for Donald Trump often inciting violence."  In obvious spite of these actual bombshells, all of the "Big Three" networks blacked out the revelations.  "In its latest pair of videos, Project Veritas Action the controversial conservative group that uses hidden cameras to document alleged misconduct by progressive organizations targets the satellite groups orbiting the democratic national committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign," stated Fox News Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen.

Tinfoil: It's Getting Harder To Leave Home Without It.  Military troop movements, missile deployments, a calling home to all diplomats and their children, multi-national communist allied war gaming (e.g.  Russian and Chinese navy) on the open sea, all while instructing the Russian population to take part in "live nuclear bombing drills" for the first time since the cold war ended.  That's what's been taking place (and a whole lot more) over the last 30 days in the real world.  Have you heard, read, or seen anything about it in the main-stream media?  Sorry, trick question.  Of course not. [...] Yet, here is the real question:  Can you think of another time when something even resembling the above as it pertains to war, or even the drums of it wouldn't be the only thing reported this close to an election previously?  The silence is so deafening it boggles the mind.

Jill Stein On Wikileaks:  How Much More Evidence Does Govt Need To Press Charges Against Hillary?  Dr. Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate, is railing against the Hillary Clinton machine and the mainstream media.  That's why you'll rarely see her on the news, because the media doesn't want her telling the truth about the Clintons.

Stunning Corruption — Explosive O'Keefe Video Being Blocked By Fearful Corporate Media.  The jaw-dropping James O'Keefe (Project Veritas) year-long investigative expose' of the DNC and Clinton Team coordinating violence against political opposition is being stunningly "black-listed" by all U.S. corporate media.

NBC More Worried by Trump's 'Dark Tone' Than Firebombed GOP.  On Monday [10/17/2016], NBC's Today devoted a nearly three-minute report to stoking fears that Donald Trump's supporters could cause violence if the Republican nominee is defeated in November, while only offering a scant 39 seconds of air time to a GOP campaign office in North Carolina being firebombed over the weekend.

American Media has Become a Terrorist Organization, Incites Violence, Covers-Up Crimes.  The firebombing of a North Carolina is the latest attack on free speech in the United States.  This attack, which would be labelled a domestic terrorism and be the subject of never-ending media coverage had it happened at a Clinton office, has been largely ignored by the American media.  The North Carolina firebombing is part of a broader campaign of terror incited by American media, which continues to cover up violence.

Nearly 100,000 Pennsylvania Voters Switch From Democrat To Republican.  What's more:  The Pennsylvania Republican party says more than 240-thousand new voters have joined the party since last November.  The state Republican party says that the surge in Republican registrations is nearly twice the number of newly registered Republicans compared to both the 2008 and 2012 numbers combined.

One Million Reasons Obamacare Made Things Worse.  During the last presidential debate, Hillary Clinton denounced Donald Trump for pledging to repeal the "Affordable Care Act" and take our health care system back to "the way it used to be."  The underlying assumption of this accusation is, of course, that the system works better now than before it was "reformed."  Many accept that as a given, but think about it.  Before Obamacare was foisted upon us by Mrs. Clinton's fellow Democrats, do you remember reading headlines announcing that more than a million people were about to lose their health insurance plans in one fell swoop?  Neither do I.

Kim Strassel sums up the Hillary bombshells the press has ignored all week.  [Kim] Strassel is an excellent writer and she does a deep dive into things that are happening in Washington that no one else is telling you about.  But while I admire Strassel's reporting skills, and I'm sure she's worked hard to cultivate sources, the fact of the matter is that most of the media could be culling the same information Strassel comes up with.  They just don't, either because they aren't interested or they don't think it would serve their ideological agenda.

Shocking But True:  Hillary's Never Asked by Media About Broaddrick.  The Washington Free Beacon noted that former NBC investigative reporter Michael Isikoff insisted NBC News should release the full tape of its interview with Juanita Broaddrick — "NBC ought to check its archive and run the full interview.  (As long as they're now culling their archives!)"  He added that it was "amazing to watch" Democrats that he saw defend Bill Clinton against his accusers now jump to embrace women accusing Trump.  "It's amazing to watch how D's who attacked those women are now embracing the Trump accusers, while the Rs who believed them attack them," Isikoff said.  Since Broaddrick attended the second presidential debate — with Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones, who both claimed non-consensual harassment from Clinton — Hillary defenders have tried to pretend they were just bimbos.

Wikileaks Bombshell:  John Podesta Owned 75,000 Shares in Putin-Connected Energy Company.  Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta's membership on the executive board of an energy company, Joule Unlimited, which received millions from a Putin-connected Russian government fund, also included "75,000 common shares," according to an email exchange uncovered by the Wikileaks hacks.  In the newly-uncovered email exchanged under the subject "Podesta Outstanding Docs for Joule," Eryn Sepp, who was an assistant to Podesta at the Center for American Progress, forwarded a message to Podesta from Mark C. Solakian, who was Senior Vice President and General Counsel at Joule Unlimited Technologies, Inc.

Washington Post Reporter Spiked Info About Podesta Conflict Of Interest.  A Washington Post reporter gave former White House Senior Counselor John Podesta advance reassurance she was withholding information about his ethically compromising financial links to a Democratic mega-donor.  "I just wanted to make sure John Podesta had a heads up that his name will be in a story concerning the White House's ethics policy, which could run on Monday," WaPo White House Bureau Chief Juliet Eilperin told then-Obama White House Assistant Press Secretary Frank Benenati in a March 21, 2015, email.

Liberal Media Ignore Recent Wikileaks Release.  Major news outlets have devoted very little attention to the Wikileaks release of thousands of John Podesta's emails.  The New York Times, allegedly America's "paper of record," has only written five stories about the leaks.  None about Hillary saying Saudi Arabia and Qatar fund ISIS, the state department coordinating with the Clinton campaign, or journalists' coziness with the Clinton campaign.  Possibly the reason the Times didn't cover the latter is because two of their writers were exposed in the leaks for their close relationship with the Clinton campaign.

Where's Hillary?  The failure to campaign in October is without precedent in any American presidential election in living memory.  Even in 1944, FDR, in failing health and confined to his wheelchair, campaigned vigorously in October.  The media, of course, is studiously ignoring Hillary's hibernation.  Donald Trump shouldn't.

Muslim Int'l Student Cuts Throat of Coed — HERO Steps In.  Masculine strength — when paired with an instinct to protect — is a beautiful thing.  Ladies, take note.  And tell your women's studies profs that THIS is why we don't want to demonize masculinity.  There will ALWAYS be a certain number evil people in this world who want to dominate others.  But when the good guys don't have their masculinity trained out of them, they can put these evil people in their place.

Muslim Begins To Cut Girl's Throat, Sees Something Out Of Corner Of His Eye.  A terrifying attack occurred on Tuesday [10/4/2016] that the mainstream media outside of Canada are widely ignoring.  Of course, since the attacker was quickly revealed to be a Muslim student from the most Islamic country on earth, we can see why Barack Obama's lapdog media aren't chomping at the bit to report it.

State Dept.  And White House Coordinated To 'Crush' Clinton Email Coverage.  The State Department and White House coordinated to shield Sec. of State John Kerry from being asked last March about Hillary Clinton's emails in an interview on CBS News' "Face the Nation," newly released emails show.  "Think we can get this done so [Kerry] is not asked about email," Jennifer Palmieri, then the White House's communications director, wrote to then-State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki on March 12, 2015, two days after Clinton held her first press conference to answer questions about her email practices.

Press Virtually Ignores Two-Week Old Story of 19 Dead People Registered to Vote in VA.  The left continues to insist that voter fraud is a myth, specifically that "voter fraud is very rare, voter impersonation is nearly non-existent," and that "most allegations of fraud turn out to be baseless."  Part of the support system for that insistence comes from the press, where reports of election fraud routinely get ignored or downplayed.  One particularly egregious example of this has to do with Democrat Andrew Spieles in Virginia.  A local paper reported on September 15 that Spieles has admitted to turning in voter registrations for 19 dead people in Virginia.  As far as I can tell, it took two weeks for anyone in the national press to give the story any attention — and no other national press outlet has.

Yellen's Footnote 8 Would Put Interest Rates on Autopilot.  For Yellen to adopt any fixed rule would be a major strategy shift.  She has declined to use the so-called "Taylor Rule" favored by some economists, claiming the Fed should be flexible but "data-dependent."  The rule described in Yellen's Footnote 8 uses variables like core PCE inflation, the Fed's inflation target, and the unemployment rate to calculate an optimal Federal Funds rate target.  If the Fed had been following the rule during the last recession, they would have dropped rates to -9%.

Not News: 'Obama's Half-Brother Supports Donald Trump'.  Deep in the A-section of Thursday's [9/22/2016] USA Today was this surprising headline:  "Obama's half-brother supports Donald Trump."  None of the networks (and none of the other elite liberal newspapers) seemed to find this tidbit interesting.  Obama used his half-siblings in Kenya for dramatic effect in his memoir Dreams from My Father, but as president, the media have been very quiet about their activities or opinions.

Proof that Hillary Clinton Rally Video In Greensboro NC IS A "FAKE".  [Video clip]

Recent Hillary Clinton Greensboro Rally held in front of green screen?  [Video clip]

Why No Press Interest In the Troubling Conduct Of Hillary's Top Attack Dog?  For a journalist actually interested in seeking the truth, there are plenty of questions to ask [David] Brock.  In a legal fight that the press has conveniently ignored, Brock's former long-time live-in boyfriend William Grey (whom Brock has thanked in several of his books) threatened to go to the IRS with damaging information about how Brock was running his Media Matters empire.  What did Brock do?  He paid Grey $850,000 to keep quiet.  Brock reportedly had to sell his home in Rehoboth, Delaware to come up with the money.  This certainly seems to indicate that Brock was terrified about what the authorities would uncover.  If Brock were merely a private citizen, this would simply be a matter between Grey and himself.  But Brock is working closely with the Clinton campaign and using his organizations like Media Matters to go after her opponents.  If Grey has evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Media Matters and Brock, that has a bearing on larger issues and becomes newsworthy.  Why hasn't the press been interested in this?

49 abominable facts about Hillary the media won't tell you.  If you listen to the news, the only real reporting being done about Hillary Clinton has to do with her email scandal.  Even though she violated the Espionage Act, the FBI refused to prosecute.  Her family's foundation is under heavy scrutiny.  But did you know these other important points about Hillary's life-long run to the White House?

Nets Blackout State Department Admitting Ineffectiveness of Iran Deal.  When the Obama administration finished constructing the Iran nuclear agreement the public was told, and the liberal media supported, claims that the deal would lead to smoother negotiations and interactions with the country.  "Now, under questioning from Fox News, the Obama administration is allowing for the possibility that they were wrong," announced Special Report anchor Bret Baier Tuesday [9/13/2016], "And that the nuclear deal may be making the behavior of the Iranian regime worse."  Even with such a shocking change in position the "Big Three" networks failed to report it.

10 Pictures of Hillary Clinton Wobbling and Then Collapsing Today That Legacy Media Will Never Show You.  They now claim it's "pneumonia", but Hillary has had a longstanding and persistent cough that has defied treatment and couldn't possibly be a months-long case of walking pneumonia.  In short, Hillary is very ill.  She can't stand up without supporting herself using railings, stools, tables, chairs, her mysterious Epipen-equipped handler, and — of course — Huma Abedin.  Her latest health scare involved collapsing into her wheelchair lift-equipped van, nearly knocking herself out.  Of course, the media are doing their level best to cover it up.

Media's Orwellian censorship on Hillary Clinton's health.  [Scroll down]  ["]I don't like it, and privately I've said to some of my friends what's happening with some of the media companies in their coverage of this election, I've never seen anything like it.  It's scary, how they're not even booking guests to do opposing views.  It's just these non-stop propaganda segments against Trump about how he's so racist, these emotional knee-jerk points over and over again — that he's racist, that he's sexist, and he's this and he's that.  But they're ignoring one really big issue that's starting to bubble up on the Internet.["]

The news media does not report sparse crowds at Clinton events.
Dozens of empty seats for Hillary's speech to veterans.  Hillary Clinton's speech to the American Legion looked good for the cameras pointing towards the stage, but a crowd shot showed dozens of empty seats in the audience.

More about sparse crowds at Hillary Clinton events.

Communist Party USA Endorses Hillary; Media Yawns.  If the endorsement of Trump by the ex-head of the Ku Klux Klan is big news, one would expect a Hillary endorsement by the head of the Communist Party USA would be a big deal as well.  That's right.  Hillary-supporter [John] Bachtell is, as seen [elsew]here, the very proud "national chair of the Communist Party USA." That's right, Mr. Bachtell is a literal card-carrying Communist.  You recall the Communists, yes?  The folks who produced Stalin and Mao?  The advocates of a political philosophy that is described in The Black Book of Communism as being responsible for "between 85 million and 100 million" deaths?

Where Is Media Coverage of George Soros Meddling in U.S. Internal Affairs?  Why is the mainstream media so willing to forego any mention of Soros' machinations and interventions into America's internal affairs?  Why are they so willing to overlook what would otherwise, in normal times, rate as headline news.

ABC, CBS Blackout FBI Warning of Election System Hackings.  The fear of a cyber-attack on the American election system seemed close to being realized Monday [8/29/2016] with a dire warning from FBI.  "There's late word tonight that the FBI is warning state election officials to pay more attention to the security of their voting systems in response to recent hacking attacks that are just now coming to light," reported fill-in anchor Savannah Guthrie on NBC Nightly News.  NBC was the only network to share the FBI's warning, while ABC and CBS failed to mention it at all.

HuffPo Writer Finds Out What Happens When You Mention "Hillary's Health".  Just like Dr. Drew Pinsky, Huffington Post writer/author, David Seamon, finds out what happens if you discuss Hillary Clinton's health. You get the Clinton scrub.

Media Blackout:  Nelson Mandela's Grandson Charged With Raping Teenager.  On August 12, Mbuso Mandela, 24, Nelson Mandela's grandson, reportedly dragged a young girl into the restroom of a Johannesburg restaurant and raped her.  The victim is 15-years-old, according to a police report.  To compound her grandson's legal problems, the murderous Winnie Mandela sent one of her goons to the victim's home, in an attempt to silence her.

If You Only Read The New York Times And Washington Post, You Have No Idea The Soros Leak Happened.  On June 4, 2016, the New York Times editorial board wrote an article titled "Big Money Rearranges Its Election Bets."  "Both parties are busy exploiting the power of barely regulated super PACs to accept unlimited six- and seven-figure donations for candidates," the editors wrote.  "At the same time, campaigns are concealing the names of other rich donors in 'dark money' operations palmed off as tax exempt 'social welfare' agencies supposedly dedicated to doing good, not to bare knuckle politics."  But two-and-a-half months later, when the internal workings of a powerful political network palmed off as a tax-exempt "social welfare" agency supposedly dedicated to doing good were released to the public — unveiling the big money ties to many of the left's top social causes — the Times kept its readers in the dark.

Soros's campaign of global chaos.  Major media outlets in the US have ignored the leak of thousands of emails from billionaire George Soros's Open Society Foundation by the activist hacker group DCLeaks.  The OSF is the vehicle through which Soros has funneled billions of dollars over the past two decades to non-profit organizations in the US and throughout the world.  According to the documents, Soros has given more than $30 million to groups working for Hillary Clinton's election in November, making him her largest single donor.  So it is likely the case that the media's support for Clinton has played some role in the mainstream media's bid to bury the story.

NYT Asks Google to Censor Search Results Related to Hillary's Health Problems and They Do It.  Some radical nutjob and New York Times reporter (but I repeat myself) recently called on Google to censor search results related to Hillary's numerous health issues. [...] Based on my research, it would appear that Google is now obliging that request:  Curiously, Google's super-smart auto-suggest feature appears incredibly ignorant when it comes to matter of Hillary Clinton's well-documented health problems.

CBS News Deletes Poll Story Crediting Trump for 5+ Point Lead in Pennsylvania.  True Pundit is issuing an Amber Alert for a missing CBS News story.  The story was short, weighed very positive for Donald Trump, was last seen at a CBS affiliate website, and vanished early Monday morning [8/22/2016], approximately 3 am EST.  Voters with any information on this story's whereabouts are encouraged to be quiet and act like nothing happened, just like CBS who is refusing to comment on our questions of what happened to the Trump poll story.  I mean, if the poll showed Hillary Clinton leading by +5 chances are there wouldn't be a story on a missing story.

The Bizarre Media Blackout Of Hacked George Soros Documents.  Leaked documents released a few days ago provide juicy insider details of how a fabulously rich businessman has been using his money to influence elections in Europe, underwrite an extremist group, target U.S. citizens who disagreed with him, dictate foreign policy, and try to sway a Supreme Court ruling, among other things.  Pretty compelling stuff, right?  Not if it involves leftist billionaire George Soros.  In this case, the mainstream press couldn't care less.

Stephanopoulos gets tough on Clinton Foundation, leaves out his own donations.  ABC newsman George Stephanopoulos gave Hillary Clinton's campaign manager a grueling grilling over the scandal-scarred Clinton Foundation's future on Sunday [8/21/2016]. But Stephanopoulos, a former aide to President Bill Clinton, must have forgotten to disclose his own five-figure donations to the organization. [...] Stephanopoulos was communications director for the 1992 presidential campaign of Bill Clinton, then served as White House communications director and senior adviser for policy and strategy before leaving following Clinton's first term.  On Sunday, Stephanopoulos did not mention that records show he has personally donated $75,000 to the foundation, noted NewsBusters.

Sulzberger's Voice.  In 2006, as marching protesters filled the streets of Los Angeles to demand rights for illegal immigrants, the New York Times published an editorial that glowed with approval.  "Something powerful pulled more than half a million people onto the streets of Los Angeles on Saturday, turning 26 downtown blocks into a pulsing sea of white T-shirts and American flags," the editorial began.  "A veteran police commander said that in 38 years he had never seen a march so huge."  The editorial went on to declare that "[t]he marchers recognize — as much of the nation seems not to — the urgency of comprehensive immigration reform to the nation's future.  Their indignation is mixed with pride in their work and hunger for fair treatment."  The editorial omitted an inconvenient fact, one that was important enough to be included by other newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times, the Orange County Register, and the Long Beach Press-Telegram.  As the Los Angeles Times reported, the marchers stood "amid a sea of American and Mexican flags."  The Mexican flags didn't make it into the New York Times.  Neither did the flags of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, which were also abundant in the streets.

CNN Selectively Edits Police Shooting Victim's Sister's Words to Protesters.  In a classic case of media bias by omission, CNN took extra care Monday to leave out a crucial part of their reports on the Milwaukee police shooting.  After a black police officer fatally shot Sylville Smith Sunday, after he refused to put down his gun, riots and violence ensued in the city.  Smith's family was eager to talk to the media and his sister Sherelle had a message that should have been covered and condemned by the media.  Instead, CNN decided to air her words but curtail them before they became controversial.  In this video posted by user DeeconX on Twitter, Sherelle Smith can be seen here, in front of several reporters, calling for violence to end...in the city.  What she says next is shocking.

CNN edits out Milwaukee victim's sister calling for violence in 'the suburbs'.  Both online and on television, CNN edited out Sherelle Smith, the sister of a black man who was killed by police in Milwaukee on Saturday, calling for rioters to take their violence "to the suburbs."  Correspondent Ana Cabrera reported Ms. Smith was "calling for peace" in a televised segment Monday [8/15/2016] on CNN Newsroom, NewsBusters reported.  The network showed a brief clip of Ms. Smith telling protesters:  "Don't bring the violence here and the ignorance here."  But CNN cut away before Ms. Smith called for rioters to "take that s--- to the suburbs."

Crooked Hillary or Unhealthy Hillary?  This is not medical grand rounds, where a final diagnosis much be reached.  Instead, it's about whether Hillary Clinton is mentally and physically well enough to serve as president of the United States.  These are legitimate questions, and an honest and diligent media would be investigating her health as they did for similarly older candidates John McCain and Bob Dole when they ran for president.  Instead, and not surprisingly, CNN circles the wagons around its favored candidate, ignoring these health concerns.  Rather than piling on every Donald Trump utterance, the health of Hillary Clinton deserves scrutiny.  Otherwise, a President Clinton might be too sick to function, similar to the fossilized general secretaries of the old Soviet Union, who rarely appeared in public and allowed their underlings to run the country.

ABC Spends Just 33 Seconds on Trump's Economic Plan.  Donald Trump spent more than 52 minutes laying out his plans for the economy in Detroit Monday.  It's an issue voters ranked as their most important, yet ABC spent only devoted 33 seconds to what Trump proposed.  Pew Research Center reported on July 7 that voters ranked the economy as their highest priority.  But World News Tonight barely covered the substance of Trump's speech on that very issue.  Instead, it spent more than five times more or 178 seconds harping mostly on criticisms of Trump and his plan.

A Former CIA Director Just Endorsed Hillary:  What You're Not Being Told.  Michael J. Morell, the former director and deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) between 2010 and 2013, is close to Hillary Clinton.  But you wouldn't know just that by asking.  Once he left the CIA, Morell became a Senior Counselor for Beacon Global Strategies, a consulting firm founded by Philippe Reines — a longtime ally of Clinton.  In a recent op-ed for The New York Times, Morell details why he is supporting the Democrat in November.  As observed by Gawker, the 33-year CIA veteran goes to great lengths in his op-ed to paint his position as nonpartisan — but he fails to mention that he, indeed, has close ties to his candidate.

'What A Disaster': Boos, Catcalls Mar Hillary Clinton's Coronation Speech.  Hillary Clinton officially accepted the Democratic nomination for president amid a series of boos and catcalls Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention.  As soon as the roars of applause died down and Clinton began her speech, loud boos erupted in several parts of the arena, disrupting an otherwise weighty moment.  Scattered shouting continued through the first few minutes of her speech, although the audience tried to drown them out by chanting "Hillary!  Hillary!"  The loud chanting drowned out some of the calls and some protesters were reportedly ejected from the arena, but the spontaneous chanting and continuing boos created a distracting atmosphere, apparently making it difficult at times for Clinton to get through her speech.

What The Media Is Not Telling You About The Muslim Who Attacked Donald Trump:  He Is A Muslim Brotherhood Agent Who Wants To Advance Sharia Law And Bring Muslims Into The United States.  The Muslim who attacked Donald Trump, Khizr Muazzam Khan, is a Muslim Brotherhood agent, working to bring Muslims into the United States.  After reading what we discovered so far, it becomes obvious that Khan wanted to 'trump' Trump's Muslim immigration policy of limiting Muslim immigration into the U.S.  But not so fast.  Trump we have your back.  Khizr Muazzam Khan graduated in Punjab University Law College, as the New York Times confirms.  He specialized in International Trade Law in Saudi Arabia.  An interest lawyer for Islamic oil companies Khan wrote a paper, called In Defense of OPEC to defend the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), an intergovernmental oil company consisting of mainly Islamic countries.  But more than this, Khan is a promoter of Islamic Sharia Law in the U.S. He was a co-founder of the Journal of Contemporary Issues in Muslim Law.

Nets Censor Dems Cheering Abortion at DNC.  In what Yahoo News called a "convention first," NARAL president Ilyse Hogue proclaimed her past abortion loud and clear in her nationally televised DNC speech.  Yet, the resounding cheers and applause from her Philly audience were not loud enough to reach the networks' ears.  In fact, neither NBC, ABC nor CBS provided any coverage of Hogue's July 27 speech or the crowd's shamefully ecstatic response to her personal history.

Hillary Clinton's Historic Night [was] Marred By Contradiction And Dissent.  If you watched the final night of the Democratic Convention on television at home or at a watch party, it might have seemed like everything went pretty well for Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. [...] But not everything was quite as it seemed.  Inside the convention hall, hundreds of Bernie Sanders delegates wearing florescent yellow T-shirts and seated in small clusters within their state sections kept causing trouble.

Must Protect Hillary's Optics — Thousands of Trump Supporters Turned Away By Democrat Mayor and Fire Marshal in Columbus.  Thousands were turned away from a Trump Rally today in Columbus Ohio as it appears the political arm of the DNC, via the Democrat Mayor Andrew Ginther, and Democrat Fire Marshal Kevin O'Conner, blocked attendance to the Trump event.  Moments before going on stage to a restricted audience of 1,000, Donald Trump informed the media of the political manipulation.

Media Silent On Bill Clinton Double Rape Bombshell.  The U.S. news media has entirely ignored the newsworthy confirmation from Juanita Broaddrick that she was allegedly raped not once but twice by Bill Clinton during the same infamous encounter in 1978.  The story was splashed as the main banner of the Drudge Report for much of the day on Wednesday [7/27/2016], after Bill Clinton brandished Hillary's purported credentials as a champion of women on Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention here.  In addition to its massive general readership, the Drudge Report is read widely throughout the day as a tip sheet of sorts by many in the news industry.

No Mention of Clinton Foundation During DNC Convention.  After nearly three days of speeches and video propaganda one major part of Democrat Nominee Hillary Clinton's life's work has gone virtually unmentioned during the Democrat National Convention in Philadelphia.  Even as speaker after speaker lauded Hillary's career in public life, no mention of the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation has been uttered from the dais.  It seems strange that a $2 billion charity that has purportedly done such great things all across the world has not rated a single word in Philly.

Israeli/American Flags Burned By Leftists Outside DNC.  Assorted leftists danced while burning Israeli and American flag outside the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday [7/26/2016] in Philadelphia, PA.  At various points, chants of "intifada" were heard in support of the "Palestinian" national movement.

Philly police say uniformed cops were barred from DNC floor.  Some Philadelphia police officers say they were barred from patrolling in uniform on the floor of the convention while it was in session — spurring claims that Democrats are anti-law enforcement.  Rudy Giuliani on Thursday first raised the issue of uniformed cops not being allowed to mingle with delegates on the floor.  "Philadelphia police officers are not in the convention hall.  They're not allowed in uniform," said Giuliani, a Donald Trump adviser who was monitoring the Democratic convention.

Giuliani: Uniformed Police Officers Not Allowed on Democratic Convention Floor.  Thursday [7/28/2016] on Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends," in an appearance from the site of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani called the convention "the most anti-police" and "the most anti-law enforcement" he had ever seen.  However, he also said that according to "high-ranking police officers" in Philadelphia, uniformed law enforcement was not allowed on the floor of the convention.

Hey, Media — Remember When Obama Attempted To Manipulate The Election In Israel?  Oh, what seemingly short and highly selective memories does the Mainstream Media have when it comes to foreign countries attempting to manipulate the election outcomes of other nations.  You know, like Barack Obama did just recently in Israel?

What The Media Is Not Telling You About The Mass Stabbing In Japan In Which Nineteen People Were Slaughtered.  There was a mass stabbing that happened in Japanned in which 19 people were killed:  it was a result of Japan's demonic and evil society.

Under strict gun laws, Japan's mass killers must rely on knives instead.  Japan's homicide rate makes the United States look like a war zone.  Consider that Tokyo is five times larger than Chicago.  And yet, in 2014, Tokyo tallied a mere 11 homicides.  Chicago racked up 416 — a difference of more than 3,500 percent.  When mass killings do strike Japan, the killer is unlikely to carry a gun.  He is invariably armed with a knife.  It's one of the few lethal weapons that a homicidal Japanese person can acquire.

How big was the walkout from the DNC when Hillary nominated?  The level of media bias in reporting the Democratic National Convention is as high as I have ever seen outside of North Korea and the old Soviet bloc.  The GOP convention was declared a disaster many times during its four-day run, but the DNC, reeling from revelations of the rigging of the primary contests, is getting far more benign descriptors, as the media avert their eyes from unpleasant realities. [...] Imagine, for a moment, that Ted Cruz delegates had walked out on the GOP convention.  Would the media have interrupted its coverage of the convention floor to follow the out and give them plenty of air time to speak their minds?  Or, would they have just "chilled"?

Media Continues To Ignore Chaos Surrounding Democrat Convention.  Protests in the street, and angry delegates inside, but you wouldn't know it if you simply watched the Mainstream Media coverage of the Democrat Convention this week.  Hundreds have been marching in the streets of Philadelphia every day since Sunday — but those marches have been given a near total media blackout.

Remember when Ted Kennedy asked the Soviets for help defeating Reagan?  The Democrats are desperately diverting attention away from their rigging the nomination fight by charging that Russia is interfering in our election.  But there was a time when going to Moscow to help defeat the other party didn't seem to disturb Democrats.  In fact, with the help of friendly media, the entire incident has been sent to the memory hole.

75 Percent Positive Response to Donald Trump Speech — So CNN Trashes Its Own Poll.  Donald Trump won the Republican nomination for president in Cleveland during a momentous week in political history.  On Thursday night [7/21/2016], Trump gave a one-hour-and-fifteen-minute speech accepting the Republican nomination.  The speech was so overwhelmingly well-received among the crowd that the media did not know what to do to tear it apart.

Democrat Debt:  DNC Reveals It Is $2.5 Million In the Hole As Convention Costs Loom.  Twenty-four hours before the start of the Democratic National Convention here, convention fundraising chief Jason O'Malley revealed the DNC is $2.5 million short of paying for the festivities.  The revelation was buried in the 26th paragraph of the Sunday [7/24/2016] "brunch edition" of Politico's Playbook, which is billed as the "must-read briefing on what's driving the day in Washington."

Media belatedly wake up to DNC email disaster as '60 Minutes' plays down a scoop.  In the space of 48 hours, the hacked DNC emails went from a B-minus story to the only story.  You could feel the drama metastasizing, hour by hour, here in Philadelphia.  When I arrived at the scene of the Democratic convention on Saturday, the media were largely treating the dump of nearly 20,000 leaked emails as an intriguing sidebar.  It did not make the front page of the New York Times or Washington Post or dominate sites like Politico.  In fact, on Sunday morning, I spent several minutes searching the Times website before finding a day-old piece buried on the politics tab.  Nor were the embarrassing emails the subject of constant cable chatter.

The Black Heroes Who Took Down the Freddie Gray Hoax.  Once again, Judge Barry G. Williams handed the Freddie Gray lynch mob a decisive defeat, shredding the prosecution's case against Lt. Brian Rice, the highest ranking police officer targeted by the mob.  Judge Williams stated firmly that, the court "cannot be swayed by sympathy, prejudice or public opinion."  Instead he insisted that it had to follow the law. [...] Not only is their Freddie Gray hoax being destroyed, trial by trial, based on the lack of evidence, but the destroyer is an articulate and principled African-American judge.  Worse still, Judge Williams had prosecuted police misconduct cases for the Justice Department.  And when he takes apart the Gray hoax, as he has done in multiple trials, it's from the standpoint of a uniquely qualified expert.  You can see why the media is staying away.

Bike trails becoming a center of black on white mob violence.  Urban bike and jogging paths are becoming synopsis with black on white mob attacks and media censorship.  Groups of young blacks look for vulnerable whites to brutally beat up.  Little, if anything, of value is stolen.  Racial hatred seems to be the primary motive in most of these attacks.  The race of the attackers are often aggressively censored by the media.  The attacks are blamed on "a lack of lights" or a "lack of security."

23 Seconds on ObamaCare Exchange Failures All Year, from Broadcast Evening News.  The Affordable Care Act crisis is continuing, but you wouldn't know that if you relied on ABC, CBS or NBC for your news.  On July 5, CNBC called Connecticut's state co-op "financially unstable," noting that "HealthyCT is the 14th of 23 original ObamaCare co-ops to fail since they began selling health plans on government-run Affordable Care Act insurance exchanges."  A few days later, on July 8, Oregon's co-op became the 15th to fail.  Illinois followed on July 12.  CNN Money grimly reported on July 14 that "Seven remaining ObamaCare co-ops prepare survival strategies."  The same article noted that "many struggled early on," adding "[e]ither they increased enrollments too fast, and then could not keep up with rising health costs, or they could not gain enough members to help spread their costs." [...] Yet, the morning and evening news shows on ABC, CBS and NBC, which were quick to promote the Affordable Care Act, have been silent on this ongoing health care crisis.

Media Out To Lunch on Fraud Indictment of Democratic Congresswoman.  Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown was indicted on 24 federal charges on Friday [7/8/2016] related to a "fraudulent education charity," as CNN.com put it on Friday.  However, viewers of CNN's on-air coverage, as well as those who watch MSNBC and the Big Three networks' morning and evening newscasts, would know nothing of this indictment, as these TV outlets have yet to cover it, as of Monday morning.  Meanwhile, NBC Nightly News aired a full report on a new exhibit at a Philadelphia museum; while ABC's GMA devoted a full report on Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda's final appearance in the play.  To their credit, PBS NewsHour devoted an 18-second news brief on the fraud charges against the Florida politician: [...]

The Curious Case of Philando Castile — Falcon Heights, MN Police Shooting.  By now everyone is aware of the officer involved shooting of Philando Castile that became a viral BLM activist case as a direct result of his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds (aka Lavish Reynolds) live-streaming the aftermath from their vehicle. [...] During the uploaded video narration Ms. Reynolds stated the police officer pulled them over for a broken tail light.  There are several aspects of the narrative as told that didn't pass the sniff test, however, something about the "tail light" just didn't seem to make sense.  Especially when you consider it was daylight when they were pulled over; and where — in the aftermath media video — it can be noted the tail lights were operable.  Upon further evaluation something is missing.  We believe we have identified a very important missing element.

Confirmed — Philando Castile Was an Armed Robbery Suspect, False Media Narrative Now Driving Cop Killings.  The Falcon Heights, Minnesota police shooting of Philando Castile is based around an entirely false narrative.  Castile and Ms. Diamond Reynolds (Facebook video uploader) were pulled over by police because Castile matched a BOLO Alert for an armed robbery suspect from four days prior.  Unfortunately, the false statements in the video — which have gone viral, and are being pushed by the mainstream media — have created a backlash against police officers.

Minnesota Officer Was 'Reacting to the Presence of a Gun,' Lawyer Says.  A lawyer for the suburban police officer who fatally shot a black man during a traffic stop said on Saturday [7/9/2016] that the race of the driver, Philando Castile, played no role in how his client responded, and that the officer "was reacting to the presence of a gun" when he opened fire.  The comments from the lawyer, Thomas Kelly, provided the fullest accounting yet of Officer Jeronimo Yanez's version of the shooting Wednesday night, even as many details remain unclear.

Attorney: Minnesota Hispanic Officer Jeronimo Yanez Was Reacting To Philando Castile's Gun — Not Race.  Matt Finn just reported for Fox9 News in Minnesota confirming some details and adding a few more after discussion with Yanez attorney and investigators:
  •   Officer Jeronimo Yanez is Mexican not Asian as claimed by Diamond Reynolds.
  •   Philando Castile and Diamond Reynolds did not comply with instructions to keep their hands "up, visible and don't move them".
  •   There was a handgun "visible" on the lap of Philando Castile.
  •   Officer Yanez reacted to the gun and Philando Castile's movements.
  •   Confirmation again that officer Yanez did pull over Castile and Reynolds as an outcome of Castile fitting the profile from the armed robbery July 2nd.

Lawyer: Castile [was] pulled over because he matched robbery suspect.  A St.  Anthony police officer pulled over Philando Castile because he was driving with a broken tail or brake light and he believed that Castile looked like a suspect from an armed robbery nearby that was reported a few days earlier, the officer's attorney told the Star Tribune on Sunday [7/10/2016].  "All he had to have was reasonable suspicion to pull him over," attorney Thomas Kelly said of his client, Jeronimo Yanez.  Kelly said his client shot Castile the night of July 6 in Falcon Heights "after he reacted to the actions of Mr. Castile."  "This has nothing to do with race, and everything to do with the presence of a gun," Kelly said.  "Deadly force would not have been used if not for the presence of a gun."

Narrative starts to fall apart in Minnesota police shooting.  Much of what we think we know about the shooting of Philando Castile by police in Minnesota is false.  But we shouldn't be surprised, because the media sticks to The Narrative.  You know, the near mandatory narrative that the American media can apply to any instance of a white person (or even a "White Hispanic") killing a black person.  An innocent and sympathetic black person has been victimized by white racism.  We saw this in the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, with significant facts utterly repressed by the media.

Police audio in deadly Minnesota traffic stop could change everything.  An alleged recording of police audio claims to have captured the moments before Philando Castile and his girlfriend Diamond Reynolds were stopped by a Minnesota police officer, questioning Reynolds account of what happened.  Reynolds claimed, in the video she took of Castile as he laid dying, that they were pulled over for a broken tail light.  However, the audio recording makes no mention of that.

Update:
Woman Who Famously Live-Streamed Her Boyfriend's Police Shooting is Arrested for Hammer Attack.  Diamond Reynolds, the woman who famously live-streamed the controversial fatal police shooting of Philando Castile, has been arrested in connection with a vicious attack that left another woman with serious injuries.  Reynolds, Dyamond Richardson, and Chnika Blair were apprehended Thursday [3/23/2107] in St. Paul, Minnesota, after allegedly attacking a woman with a hammer Tuesday night [2/28/2017], and leaving the scene in a silver truck.

Obama Gun Control doesn't work: 3 children among at least 60 shot over holiday weekend in Obama's hometown of Chicago.  Gun control is a favorite topic of Democrats to divert attention from real issues such as Islamic terrorism.  But, in the real world of the city of Chicago with the toughest gun control laws in the country, people are shot in droves day in day out.  Gun homicides are up an astounding 50%.  And the national media doesn't report any of this strictly for political reasons.

Child Sexual Assault Cover-Up in Idaho.  The recent sexual assault of a five-year-old girl in Twin Falls, Idaho, and the reaction by public officials and the media amounting to a cover-up dramatically illustrate, yet again, how the West battles against the harsh reality of unlimited Islamic immigration.  The incident occurred June 2 at the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls where prosecutors allege a 5-year-old girl was sexually assaulted.  Two juvenile suspects, boys, ages 14 and 10, were detained, charged and released.  A third, a 7-year-old boy involved in the incident, was not charged.  The boys are from Iraqi and Sudanese families, but it's unclear if they are refugees or how long they've been in the community.

Islamic State Arrests Growing in Muslim Brotherhood Front Group's Backyard:  Indiana.  The FBI's June 21 arrest of an 18-year old-suburban Indianapolis high school student on charges of attempting to join the Islamic State (ISIS) elicited all the usual protestations of disbelief from local politicos, school spokespeople, and media outlets.  To the extent the arrest was covered at all, it contained rich details of the cooperative steps taken by federal, state, and local enforcement to monitor, track, and finally arrest the suspected terrorist as he attempted to board a Greyhound Bus.  None of the local coverage of Brownsburg High School student Akram Musleh's arrest made any mention of ties he might have had with local Islamists, let alone who those Islamists might be.  Nor was Musleh the first Muslim arrested in Indianapolis on terror support charges.  Last February, local authorities charged six people with material support for terrorism.  In its only story on those arrests, the Indianapolis Star proclaimed the reason for their presence in Indiana "was unclear."

What are military UN trucks doing in Virginia? 'Bemused motorists spot white 'combat vehicles' on the interstate.  Military U.N. vehicles have been spotted in Virginia, shocking motorists and sparking conspiracy theories.  The white trucks, equipped with large off-road tires, were seen being transported on Interstate 81 on Friday [6/24/2016].  They appear to be Alpine Armoring's Pit-Bull VX SWAT Truck models.  Jeff Stern posted photos of the vehicles on Facebook, writing:  'Can't begin to tell you how many of these I passed today on 81 near Lexington VA.  Interesting times ahead!'

Eyewitness: UN Troops In Texas: "30 UN Vehicles Fully Loaded With Combat Prepared Troops".  An eyewitness Facebook post warning is going viral that shares one Vietnam Veterans recent experience down in Dallas, Texas.  The warning, reposted by American Gun Rights-Texas who are requesting confirmation of this post, warns of 30 United Nations vehicles, fully loaded with combat prepared troops, driving down I-30 towards Garland, Texas.  Are these UN troops here preparing for economic collapse in America?  Is this related to Iran ships approaching the US border?

UN military vehicles seen rolling down Virginia interstate.  What were United Nations vehicles doing in Virginia on Friday [6/24/2016]?  That's what motorists were left to wonder when they saw UN tactical vehicles — with bulletproof glass — on a flatbed truck and rolling down Interstate 81.  Jeff Stern posted several photos of Facebook and added the description, "Can't begin to tell you how many of these I passed today on 81 near Lexington, VA. Interesting times ahead!"

UN Tank Vehicles Spotted Moving Across U.S.: "Peace Keepers and Potential for Civil Unrest".  Is the occupation of America imminent?  While few could say what is coming, there have been some curious sightings that hold ominous tones, as military vehicles and equipment for foreign forces have been sighted on U.S. highways.

What's really behind the ongoing push for gun control?  It's not politically correct to say it, but most homicides are gang bangers killing other gang bangers, gang bangers killing people standing near their gang banger targets or gang bangers killing people they've targeted for crime.  Your chance of dying from a gunshot if you are not a gang banger or not committing suicide is 0.0005417721518987342 percent.  The media won't tell you that.

TV News Feasts on Trump Controversies While Ignoring Hillary's Scandals.  Voters who have relied on the network evening newscasts for information about the 2016 presidential candidates saw four times more airtime devoted to controversies involving presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump than to the scandals surrounding his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.  Indeed, the only Clinton scandal to receive more than a minimal amount of attention from the networks during the primaries was the ongoing investigation of Clinton's use of a private e-mail server and her mishandling of classified information while serving as Secretary of State.  The networks paid little or no attention to a host of other Clinton controversies that likely would have been big news if they had been associated with her GOP opponent.

The Media Rightly Covers the Tragic Shooting in Orlando, But Why Does It Ignore Abortion?  Tragedies such as abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, and assisted suicide target our most vulnerable and helpless populations, and they breed a philosophy which discounts the sacred value of human life.  In a real sense they are the ultimate hate crimes.  The casualties of Roe v.  Wade are massive — more than 58 million unborn babies and counting.  And this massive casualty list doesn't even take into account the collateral damage inflicted on mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and grandparents.  Sadly, we will not hear the names of these unborn victims read by cable news anchors or pop stars.  In most cases, they have no names.  But they are deserving of honor and respect.  And they must not be forgotten.

The Insidious Power of the Media Disinformation Campaign for Hillary Clinton.  While it is certainly true that the chief editor of a major newspaper or the producer of a network newscast has the ability to spike or kill a story, which is essentially their way of "ignoring" the news if you will, what is more subtle, deceitful — and dare I suggest corrupt — is their penchant to frame a story to fit a specific narrative.  They no longer report the news, but they do shape a message.  There is not a finer example of the media ignoring the facts and shaping a message than what we are witnessing regarding Hillary Clinton's email server, the classified material on that server, as well as the case of the missing emails.  The media have embraced the Clinton campaign's narrative that there is "nothing to see here," that there wasn't some "mishandling email controversy," at most, or repeat Secretary Clinton's own bogus statement, "using a personal e-mail was permissible" as "other Secretaries of State did the same thing."  Other excuses have been thrown against the wall to see if something will stick, such as, she was "trying to protect her privacy" or "she was clueless about how regular emails work on a conventional computer."

France to shut down up to 160 mosques.  In the wake of the November 13 Paris terrorist attacks that claimed more than 130 lives, the French government is ordering up to 160 mosques to be shut down in the coming months.  Raids have revealed large stashes of weapons and ammunition.  The government's emergency powers grant it the right to take this extraordinary measure, and mosques that are unlicensed or have a history of "preaching hatred" are being singled out.  One of France's chief imams, Hassan El Alaoui, said last Wednesday, "According to official figures and our discussions with the interior ministry, between 100 and 160 more mosques will be closed because they are run illegally without proper licenses, they preach hatred, or use takfiri speech.  Takfiri speech involves sectarian slurs leveled by one Muslim against fellow Muslims.

France Raids Mosques, Finds Weapons-Truth!.  Reports that mosques in France have been raided and shut down in the wake of terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13th are true.  Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said on December 2nd that French officials had shut down three mosques and had detained 22 people who were believed to have participated in "Islamist radicalization."  In one of the mosques, located about 22 miles east of Paris, authorities seized a 9mm revolver, a hard drive and documents, the Wall Street Journal reports.

15 Facts About The Imploding U.S. Economy That The Mainstream Media Doesn't Want You To See.  The following are 15 facts about the imploding U.S. economy that the mainstream media doesn't want you to see:
  [#1] Industrial production has now declined for nine months in a row.  We have never seen this happen outside of a recession in all of U.S. history.
  [#2] U.S. commercial bankruptcies have risen on a year over year basis for seven months in a row and are now up 51 percent since September.
  [#3] The delinquency rate on commercial and industrial loans has been rising since January 2015.
  [#4] Total business sales in the United States have been steadily dropping since the middle of 2014.  No, I did not say 2015.  Total business sales have been in decline for nearly two years now, and we just found out that they dropped again.
  [#5] U.S. factory orders have been dropping for 18 months in a row.
  [#6] The Cass Shipping Index has been falling on a year over year basis for 14 consecutive months.
  [#7] U.S. coal production has dropped to the lowest level in 35 years.
  [...]

Finally! IRS Lists Tea Party Groups It Targeted, Nets Refuse to Report.  After more than three years of stonewalling the IRS has finally released an almost complete list of organizations that the tax agency scrutinized in the Tea Party targeting scandal, but you wouldn't know that if you got your news from the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks.  In fact, it's been 587 days since any network reported on the IRS scandal, when CBS This Morning made a mention of it on October 28, 2014.  NBC last noted the targeting scandal 614 days ago and it's been over two-years — a whopping 760 days — since ABC last mentioned it on the May 8, 2014 Good Morning America.

New York Magazine scrubs article on lack of Clinton press conferences.  A New York Magazine blog post defending Hillary Clinton's shortage of press conferences was scrubbed Thursday [6/2/2016] so that its justification for the Democratic front-runner's lack of media availability is now barely recognizable.  "The headline and force of the opinion overstepped the mark, so we edited the post and noted that it was edited," magazine spokeswoman Lauren Starke told the Washington Examiner's media desk.

Nets Cover Gorilla Death 6x More Than ISIS Christian Beheading.  It's the very definition of absurdity: the networks have covered the death of one gorilla more than the deaths of 21 Christians beheaded by ISIS for their faith.  On Saturday [5/28/2016], a gorilla named Harambe was shot after a toddler fell into the animal's enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo.  The broadcast networks routinely prioritize animal life over human life, and Harambe was no exception.  Last year, masked ISIS militants forced 21 Coptic Christians to their knees before beheading them on camera.  Donning orange jumpsuits, the Christian men were martyred on a Libyan beach.  ABC, CBS and NBC spent 6 times more on the death of one gorilla than they did on the mass execution during their morning and evening news shows.

Media dedicate 54-times more coverage to gorilla than Chicago shooting spree.  In the time since Harambe the gorilla was killed at the Cincinnati Zoo, 69 people have been shot in Chicago — but you wouldn't know it from watching the news.  The death of the gorilla has received 54-times more coverage than the violence in Chicago, according to an analysisfrom the Media Research Center.  The three major broadcast networks — ABC, CBS and NBC — have dedicated 55 minutes and 7 seconds of coverage to the death of Harambe, but only 1 minute and 1 second to the Chicago shooting spree.

CBS News Political Director: 'Our Job' to Steer Away from the Clintons' Past.  CBS News political director John Dickerson told Stephen Colbert that part of a journalist's job when it comes to covering Bill and Hillary Clinton is to steer conversations away from their pasts.  This stunning admission came Wednesday night in New York City in a live interview that took audience questions.  A question surfaced about Bill Clinton's past and how that could affect Hillary's chances in the presidential election.

Newsrooms dance around selective editing of Couric's gun documentary.  Some newsrooms are still reluctant to report outright that Katie Couric's gun documentary was selectively edited, despite the existence of audio evidence and an admission from the film's director.  Instead, several reports have been couched in careful language suggesting the Yahoo news anchor and documentary director Stephanie Soechtig have only been accused of doctoring interviews with pro-Second Amendment activists.

WashPost Buries Their Own Poll Result:  Trump Leads Clinton, 46-44.  "Begrudging WaPo" became a trending topic on Twitter on Sunday afternoon [5/22/2016] as Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner mocked how the Washington Post buried the lead in Sunday's story on their new poll:  ["]It's not the headline, and it takes 219 words to get there, but a new Washington Post poll on the presidential race reveals that Republican Donald Trump leads Democrat Hillary Clinton among registered voters 46 percent to 44 percent.["]  Four paragraphs and a sentence in, Dan Balz and Scott Clement arrived at the numbers.

More on Tuberculosis in US refugee population, feds keeping it secret.  I was about to quit posting for the day and try to answer some e-mails when I spotted yet another story about TB on the rise in America and it is pretty clear that the rise is a result of the increase in the immigrant population.

Cenk Uygur:  "CNN Never Showed You" What Really Happened At Nevada Dem Convention.  The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur explains how CNN exposed its pro-Clinton bias this weekend.  "You're so biased you don't even see it," he said about the hosts of the news network.  "You think:  I just got here on CNN because I'm, well, awesome.  No you got on CNN because you will say things that do not rock the boat.  If you rock the boat, you will be called a radical and rabble rouser and shown to the door."

5 Huge Stories the Media Ignored While Arguing Over Which Bathroom to Use.  [#2] Somebody was finally arrested for voter fraud, but it wasn't the people committing it:  This week, Anti-Media also reported on a Florida-based hacker, David Michael Levin, who exposed security flaws in the website of the Lee County Elections Office and the Division of Elections in Tallahassee.  He shared them with authorities in the hopes of fixing the problem, but instead was arrested.

Not News:  Kerry Tells Grads We're in a 'Borderless' World.  Based on the content of John Kerry's Friday [5/6/2016] commencement speech at Northeastern University, one might have expected that those in attendance threw away their passports after the event ended.  That's because the Obama administration's Secretary of State told those in attendance:  "You're about to graduate into a complex and borderless world." Kerry's extraordinarily dense, naive and dangerous contention — the key soundbite of his speech — was ignored in coverage of his address at the Associated Press, Reuters, and almost everywhere else.

WashPost Buries Uncomfortable Fact:  Gruesome, Slashing Killer Is An Illegal Alien.  On the front of Sunday's [5/1/2016] Metro section of The Washington Post came this headline:  "Gruesome images test jury during trial in Md."  Post reporter Dan Morse reported on a trial in suburban Montgomery County surrounding the murder of 36-year-old Oscar Navarro: "prosecutors were allowed to show jurors eight of the most disturbing photos — a key to their obtaining a first-degree murder conviction Friday [4/29/2016] against Mauricio Morales-Caceres, 24."  It was only in paragraphs 29 and 30 that the Post acknowledged what they clearly felt was the least relevant news detail in this court case:  The convicted murder is an illegal alien.

Rumors Persist That the CIA Helps Export Opium from Afghanistan.  Despite billions spent to eradicate opium crops in Afghanistan, the crop is more popular than ever there, leading many to wonder whether some U.S. forces may actually be encouraging its growth and the heroin it later becomes.  In July, the Centers for Disease Control warned of record-breaking numbers of heroin deaths in the United States.  "Heroin use more than doubled among young adults ages 18-25 in the past decade," the CDC reported.  In the same month, it was reported that opium production is stronger than ever in Afghanistan, which now produces 90 percent of the world's supply of the plant that's refined to create heroin.

Press Ignores Testimony of Parents of Illegal-Immigrant Murder Victims.  Three important things happened at Tuesday's hearing of the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security.  The first was the testimony of two mothers of children killed by illegal immigrants.  The second was the outrageous and false contention by a Methodist bishop that the mere act of bringing attention to these heinous offenses is a form of "blind vengeance" over "isolated ... incidents."  (In other words, it is our moral duty to shut up.)  The third explains why very few Americans have no idea that the first two items occurred, namely that the establishment press, consistent with its practice since Republicans took over the House of Representative in early 2011, chose not to cover what happened at yet another congressional hearing.

The Most Dangerous Treaties You Know Nothing About.  When you hear the phrase "tax treaties," your first response (besides yawning) would be to assume that, out of all the treaties the United States is involved in, these would be the most harmless.  Generally, you'd be right.  When we talk about tax treaties, we usually mean agreements between countries to ease excessive taxation (usually double taxation) while promoting cooperation in tax compliance.  But pending in the Senate right now are two tax treaties that are particularly dangerous to privacy, to U.S. sovereignty, and to the security of individuals and human rights.

ABC Boosts 'Fast and Furious' Car Chase, Omits Gunrunning Scandal News.  On Friday [4/8/2016], the Big Three networks' evening newscasts gave a collective yawn at the latest development in the Obama administration's Fast and Furious scandal:  the White House "turning over to lawmakers thousands of pages of records" related to the gunrunning debacle to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.  ABC's World News Tonight actually used the "Fast and Furious" phrase at the top of the program, but not in reference to the controversy.  Instead, they mentioned it as they teased a one minute and 30-second segment on the latest police chase from Los Angeles.

Media Silent as America's Largest Coal Mines Begin Mass Layoffs.  America's two largest coal mines each laid off 15 percent of their workforce — 465 employees — in one day.  Not one national news outlet ran the story.  This travesty deserves national attention.  Barack Obama and his EPA are continuing their War on Coal and War on Jobs... and no one in America — except the miners, their families, and their communities — seems to care.  Coal miners make an average of $80,000 a year.  That's $37,200,000 of taxable income gone.  The local and state economy, which was already struggling because of oil and gas layoffs, is collapsing and not one person outside of the state of Wyoming has spoken a word about it.

Why Is the Press Not Talking About the Rigged Democratic Presidential Nomination?  [Scroll down]  Just think what might be happening out there without this manipulation of the nomination process.  The candidate drawing the bigger crowds and winning quite frequently would be perceived as the one with the momentum toward gaining the party ring.  Instead of speaking about Sanders throwing in the towel, the press would be hounding [Hillary Clinton] about whether she is going to collapse again like she did in 2008.  What we don't know is how many of the party bosses might change their allegiance to Sanders and tip the nomination his way.

DHS Won't Tell You But Radical Islamists Are Actively Trying to Poison Us.  With cyber attacks becoming more frequent and attacks on our power grid and water supplies increasing, there is a corresponding decrease in information out of the Department of Homeland Security because politics trumps safety with this government.  We can't prepare if we don't know the threat.  Americans are not being warned about the attempts by Islamic terrorists on our water supplies but if you look at the Register UK, you can get some recent information.

ABC, NBC, Spanish Nets Fail to Cover Judge's Ruling for Judicial Watch Against Hillary Clinton.  One day after the networks failed to acknowledge to big developments on Hillary Clinton's e-mail scandal, ABC's World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News similarly punted Tuesday evening [3/29/2016] on a federal judge's ruling that granted the group Judicial Watch discovery powers in the lawsuit concerning the response of Hillary Clinton's State Department to the deadly 2012 Benghazi terror attack.  In addition to the English-language networks, the top Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision also ducked this issue and censored it from their Tuesday evening newscasts.

Media Finding it Harder and Harder to Ignore Hillary's Metastasizing Scandals.  Hillary Clinton's email scandal keeps on growing, with new revelations that offer more justification for an indictment.  Yet the mainstream media have long maintained that Mrs. Clinton is not the target of the two ongoing FBI investigations, and they seem very uninterested in the latest evidence to be revealed.  However, a grand jury may be forthcoming.  "My sources tell me that the Justice Department is close to empaneling a grand jury and deciding whether to grant statutory immunity to Huma Abedin, Hillary's closest adviser," writes Ed Klein for NewsMax.  Klein is a former foreign editor of Newsweek, and was editor-in-chief of The New York Times Magazine from 1977 to 1987.  "That things have gotten this far in the investigation indicates that FBI director James Comey is moving inexorably toward recommending to Attorney General Loretta Lynch that Hillary be indicted," added Klein.  While President Obama may be content to pre-judge the FBI investigations as unlikely to find anything criminal in Democrat presidential candidate Clinton's behavior, more and more evidence has appeared showing that Mrs. Clinton is a deceitful liar replete with conflicts of interests and even pay-for-play as secretary of state.

It's Been 513 Days Since Any Big 3 Network Has Touched the IRS Scandal.  The latest stunning development in the IRS targeting scandal, that a federal appeals court on Tuesday scolded the IRS for failing to turn over its full list of groups it targeted, has yet to be reported on any of the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening or morning shows.  However, as NewsBusters' Scott Whitlock reported, all three networks on Thursday found time to gush over Barack Obama's "fancy footwork" and "dancing diplomacy" in Argentina.  In fact, it's been 513 days since any network has touched the IRS scandal.

U.S. Media Ignore Tel Aviv Shooter's Plan to Attack Israeli Kindergartens.  The terrorist who shot and killed three Israelis in Tel Aviv on New Year's Day hoped to slaughter Israeli kindergarten students, Israel Police reported Sunday [3/13/2016].  Nashat Milhem indiscriminately fired a submachine gun killing two Israelis outside of a bar on a popular Tel Aviv street before running off.  An hour later, the terrorist also killed a Bedouin taxi driver.  After a week-long manhunt, Israeli forces killed Milhem following an exchange of fire near his home in northern Israel.  Two days after the attack, police uncovered Milhem's plans to "carry out an attack on Tel Aviv kindergarten students."  However, the terrorist "felt he was being chased" and "focused on survival," instead of going through with the plot to murder Israeli pre-schoolers.

Hillary's Really Bad Week No One Heard About because Guess Who.  Hillary Clinton had a gaffe-filled, staggeringly bad week last week.  It started with her politicizing Nancy Reagan's funeral and ending with more explosive allegations that her informal adviser Sidney Blumenthal had directly cut and pasted classified intelligence into an unsecured personal e-mail account.  But you wouldn't know it from media campaign coverage, which has been far more occupied with the GOP primary and the escalation of violent incidents at rallies.

Judge Smacks Down Trump's Ted Cruz Birther Claims, and Hardly Anyone Covers It.  With all of the non-stop coverage of the 2016 presidential election, have you noticed as of late that Donald Trump has not said a peep about Ted Cruz not being eligible for the presidency? [...] This weekend, it occurred to me, this issue has faded from the public eye.  The major media outlets stopped talking about it (maybe because Trump has moved on to other things.)  But, it remains an important and largely unresolved question.  So, I decided to look through some of the filings in the lawsuits filed against Cruz, and discovered an opinion from a Pennsylvania Senior Judge Dan Pellegrini that gives an absolute smack down to all of these Ted Cruz birther claims.

Nets Silent on Hillary's Claim U.S. 'Didn't Lose a Single Person' in Libya.  Update: The Spanish network morning shows on Telemundo and Univision joined NBC, ABC, and CBS in completely ignoring Clinton's gaffe during Tuesday morning's [3/15/2016] campaign coverage.  Despite all three network morning shows on Tuesday covering Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders answering questions during back-to-back MSNBC town halls, none of the broadcasts reported on Clinton committing a major gaffe by claiming that the U.S. "didn't lose a single person" in Libya.

ABC Censors Mother of Benghazi Victim's Charges Against Hillary Clinton.  In a stunning moment Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, in the March 9 Democratic debate, actually played a clip of Patricia Smith and pressed Hillary Clinton to respond to the mother of Bengazhi victim Sean Smith.  The moment was stunning because while Fox News has pursued her story, the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) have barely touched it.  In fact, since 2012, ABC has yet to air a second of Smith's claims that the former Secretary of State lied to her.  In total, there have just been five stories (CBS 2, NBC 3, ABC 0) that contained Smith's emotional pleas for answers.

Networks Ignore Climate Change Expert's Sex Scandal.  When Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri was chairman of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the networks relied on him to warn about the threat of climate change to planet earth.  Now that he is under fire for allegedly sexually assaulting a female colleague, the networks want nothing to do with the scandal.  The Telegraph reported on March 1, that the 75-year-old Pachauri was formally charged with sexually assaulting a female employee at a think tank he ran in India.  Allegations like that could undermine Pachauri's credibility and hurt any issue he was connected to, including the media's much-loved climate change agenda.

Terrorists Kill Nuns at Nursing Home in Yemen; Networks Out To Lunch.  As of Tuesday morning [3/8/2016], ABC, CBS, and NBC's morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the attack by suspected ISIS gunmen in Aden, Yemen on Friday which left 16 people dead — including four nuns of Mother Teresa's order — at a nursing home.  According to a Friday article by the New York Times, the deceased Nobel Peace Prize winner founded the home, which was "one of several care facilities in Yemen established by Mother Teresa beginning in the 1970s."  Correspondent Hakim Almasmari, who is based out of Sanaa, Yemen, filed a report on the terrorist attack on Sunday's CNN Newsroom.

Dem turnout and voter ID: The dirty little secret.  The numbers tell a story, and you can draw the obvious conclusions.  Because the mainstream media certainly won't.  Keep this statistic in mind the next time some progressive tries to claim voter fraud is not a serious problem.

Cruz: Media is sitting on bombshells about Donald Trump.  Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) said on Sunday that the media is sitting on explosive negative information about front-runner Donald Trump with plans to run it later in the year to tear the candidate apart.  "I think an awful lot of reporters — I can't tell you how many media outlets I hear, you know, have this great exposé on Donald, on different aspects of his business dealings or his past, but they said, 'You know what? We're going to hold it to June or July,'" Cruz said on CBS's "Face The Nation" Sunday [3/6/2016].

Rick Perry Is Not Guilty, but Texas Is.  Puff Daddy, or whatever his name is now, has a friend in Rosemary Lehmberg.  The hip-hop impresario is an endorser of Cîroc vodka, and Lehmberg, who in her role at the Travis County prosecutor's office oversees political crimes statewide, went through about 25 gallons of the stuff — 74 bottles — in the course of a year.  She had one of those bottles in her car when she was pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving.  She was convicted of the crime and went to jail.  Texas being Texas, she is not the first prosecutor to have been carted off to the pokey in shackles; truth be told, the state hasn't imprisoned nearly as many of its prosecutors as it should. [...] Upon her arrest, Lehmberg immediately went into "Do You Know Who I Am?" mode and was so abusive that she had to be put in restraints.  She demanded special treatment and threatened law-enforcement personnel with legal retaliation for refusing to let her slide.  Specifically, she threatened to have them arrested.

Networks Hyped Perry Indictment in 2014; Silent on Dismissal.  Political scandals make for juicy journalism, but apparently a politician being cleared of wrongdoing isn't even worth a mention.  When the initial story of Rick Perry's indictment broke in August 2014, ABC, CBS and NBC eagerly devoted 25 minutes in just two days to topic, speculating that the controversy could "end any chance" for Perry in 2016.  But when Perry was cleared of any wrongdoing on Wednesday, all three networks were silent, on both the evening news shows that night and the morning news shows the following day, Thursday, February 25.  [However, with their similarly half-hour-long evening news broadcast, Univision's Noticiero Univision managed to give Perry's exoneration 20 seconds on Wednesday night.]  The indictment came after then-Governor Perry vetoed funding for a public integrity unit after the District Attorney in charge of the unit refused to resign after a drunk driving conviction.

The Clintons really don't get it: False attacks and failed strategies as Hillary repeats 2008.  [Scroll down]  If you get your news from cable TV you don't know any of this. [...] It was a coming out party for a political revolution, but Gil Scott Heron had it right:  The revolution will not be televised.  Sanders made history even by the metrics of horse-race journalism.  He had the most votes (155,578), biggest vote share (60.4 percent) and biggest margin in a contested race (22.4 percent) of any candidate of either party in New Hampshire primary history.  As in Iowa, he outperformed late polls by more than their alleged margins of error.  Sanders won 55 percent of women, a stunning 84 percent of voters under 30, and 92 percent of those who say the trait they prize most in a politician is honesty.

Why Are Media Ignoring These Threats To Rape A Pro-Lifer's Family?  Hey, did you hear the story about the Purdue University staffer who allegedly threatened to rape some women?  No, you probably didn't — because so far the media have almost completely ignored it. [...] Think about that for a moment:  a staff member at a prominent American university apparently made public, vile, profoundly disturbed, and disgusting threats of sexual assault towards innocent women, the university is refusing to do anyting about it, and the mainstream media have ignored it for nearly a day, if not more.  In our lightning-quick digital media age, how could such an astonishing story go so underreported for so long?

Financial Scandals Follow Socialist Millionaire Sanders.  Responding to one of Anderson Cooper's softball questions, socialist Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told the CNN Town Hall on Wednesday night [2/3/2016] that he lives a frugal life and indicated that he doesn't care about money or status.  "I have a small Chevrolet," he said.  "It is one of the smallest Chevys that they make."  He said it was about five years old.  But James O'Brien, a political consultant and former publisher of Campaigns & Elections magazine, says the career politician, who has been a mayor, member of Congress and U.S. senator, has achieved the financial status of a millionaire.  O'Brien has analyzed the financial status of Sanders and his wife, including their financial disclosure report, and has concluded they have a net worth in the range of $1.2 to $1.5 million, not the $700,000 or less that is usually reported by the media.

Obama's Growing Conflict of Interest in the Clinton E-Mail Scandal.  [Scroll down]  So egregious have the scandal's latest developments been that a critical State Department admission from last week has received almost no coverage:  Eighteen e-mails between Mrs. Clinton and President Obama have been identified, and the government is refusing to disclose them. [...] Think about what this means.  Not only is it obvious that President Obama knew Mrs. Clinton was conducting government business over her private e-mail account, the exchanges the president engaged in with his secretary of state over this unsecured system clearly involved sensitive issues of policy.  Clinton was being asked for "advice and counsel" — not about her recommendations for the best country clubs in Martha's Vineyard, but about matters that the White House judges too sensitive to reveal.

Turning a Blind Eye (or Two).  Late night comedy hosts such as Jimmy Kimmel are covering Mrs. Clinton's e-mail scandal — and a true scandal it is — more than "mainstream" news outlets are.  Indeed, as the Media Research Center noted, none of the "big three" (ABC, CBS and NBC) covered the January 19th news that Hillary's e-mail server contained, as Fox News's Catherine Herridge put it, "intelligence from the U.S. government's most secretive and highly classified programs."  This means that Democrats, more likely to consume news from liberal-minded media organizations, are less aware of the seriousness of the situation than Republicans are.  Still, it's a big enough story that they cannot be ignorant of it, not least because it has come up repeatedly in Democratic debates.

Ruling: Ted Cruz is a 'natural born citizen'.  Texas Sen. Ted Cruz secured two major victories Monday [2/1/2016], winning the Republican Iowa caucuses and also receiving a favorable decision from the Illinois Board of Elections, which confirmed his U.S. citizenship met the state's primary ballot requirements.  The Illinois news got lost in the caucus coverage, which lagged into Tuesday morning [2/2/2016] and absorbed much of the media's attention.

The Editor says...
This ruling wasn't widely covered, but of course if the ruling had gone the other way, nothing else would have been discussed for the rest of the day!

Illinois Board Of Elections: Cruz Is A 'Natural Born Citizen'.  Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is a "natural born citizen" according to the Illinois Board of Elections.  The state's BOE ruled that Cruz met the citizenship criteria to appear on the state's primary ballot.

Five Things The Liberal Media Won't Tell You About The CMP Indictment.  [#2] One of the prosecutors sits on Planned Parenthood's board of directors.  One of the prosecutors for the Harris County District Attorney's office that investigated Planned Parenthood revealed last year she sits on the board of directors of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast. [...] [#3] David Daleiden is not being indicted for doctoring the videos.  Daleiden was indicted on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record because he allegedly used a fake California drivers license with the intent to defraud Planned Parenthood, and on a misdemeanor charge of attempting to purchase human organs.

Networks Neglect to Cover Senate Democrats Blocking Passage of Bipartisan Syrian Refugee Bill.  On Wednesday night, the major broadcast networks failed to cover the move by Senate Democrats earlier in the day to filibuster the bipartisan Syrian refugee legislation that had passed the House in November with the help of 47 Democrats that would have tightened restrictions to more thoroughly vet refugees from the war-torn region seeking to enter the U.S. Overall, the vote failed to hit the 60 votes needed to overcome the fatal blow by Senate Democrats as the final tally was only 55 to 43.

Trump-Palin Pow-Wow Dominates Coverage as Devastating New Hillary Story is Ignored.  [Scroll down]  If you watched any network newscast yesterday evening [1/19/2016] or read the New York Times, the same kind of tug-of-war between business decisions and news decisions was playing out. On one end was Palin's expected endorsement of Donald Trump.  On the other was the latest revelation via the Inspector General's finding that Hillary's server contained SAP (Special Access Programs) information, which is somehow deemed even more sensitive than top secret.  So which story — Palin/Trump or Hillary/IG got the huge bulk of coverage and which got zero? It's practically a rhetorical question, but still nothing short of disturbing.

Government Welfare Programs are Crushing America's Economic Growth.  [D]on't let anyone fool you about the economy of the last seven years.  Barack Obama was set up for success, as he took office on the heels of a sharp economic downturn that had a limited, specific cause.  The economy should have come roaring back as it did under Ronald Reagan, only if anything even more so, since the government errors that gave rise to the 2008 financial collapse were relatively easy to correct.  Instead, the Democrats' left-wing policies inhibited economic growth and produced the worst recovery of modern times.

NBC Scrapped Story About Bill Clinton Rape Accuser Because She Didn't Have 'Anything New' To Say.  NBC News journalists — including veteran reporter Andrea Mitchell — conducted interviews last week with Juanita Broaddrick, the Arkansas woman who says Bill Clinton raped her in 1978, but decided not to go forward with a story, claiming that there was not "anything new" to report. [...] Broaddrick, a 73-year-old retired nursing home administrator, spoke out on Twitter last Wednesday after 17 years of silence about the alleged rape.

The U.S. Has a Massive Asylum Fraud Problem No One Talks About.  Until her 2013 arrest in Texas, the Mexico City-based Nepalese smuggler Rakhi Gauchan was one of the most prolific kingpin smugglers of Islamic world migrants that federal agents had seen in years.  During her long career, Gauchan delivered scores of Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, and Indians to the Texas and Arizona borders.  Ten or more every month, according to court filings from her case.  Immigration and Customs Enforcement "special interest alien" (SIA) hunters were glad to finally remove her from the borderlands, because Gauchan confided to an undercover government agent that she believed a Pakistani client she had smuggled into Arizona was a bonafide terrorist.  ICE agents rushed to track down the Pakistani, learning he was quite real and living in America, having gained political asylum.

Europe's Dishonest Elites, and Ours.  The German situation is even worse than you presented.  Sure, the Cologne police chief got fired, but the despicable mayor hasn't resigned.  And, sure, there has been some scrambling and slithering by left politicians, including, mirabile dictu, Angela Merkel, Mutti herself, to tap dance away from the catastrophe they've created and countenanced.  But the massive coverup and deafening silence from the left and the MSM is the real story and it's disgusting. [...] There is a complete blackout — utter silence — from the likes of the execrable Salon, from Slate, The Nation, Mother Jones, The New Republic.  Zip, nada, nothing!

Obama's NSA Spying on Congress Not a Story at AP — Until GOP Responds.  The Wall Street Journal ran a blockbuster story Tuesday afternoon ("U.S. Spy Net on Israel Snares Congress") about how the Obama administration's National Security Agency's "targeting of Israeli leaders swept up the content of private conversations with U.S. lawmakers."  In other words, the NSA spied on Congress.  As talk-show host and commentator Erick Erickson drily observed:  "Congress began impeachment proceedings on Richard Nixon for spying on the opposing political party."  Whether or not Congress has the nerve to defend itself and the Constitution's separation of powers, what the Journal reported is objectively a major story.  Yet the Associated Press ignored it on Tuesday [12/29/2015], and most of Wednesday.

The sweetheart deal for Bill Clinton's Orgy Island pal may be exposed and overturned.  Tick, tick, tick... the highly suspicious deal that gave Bill Clinton's billionaire buddy Jeffrey Epstein a slap on the wrist for paying underage girls for sex may finally be subjected to pubic scrutiny and even overturned, bringing with it the possibility of bargaining against real punishment in exchange for testimony against a bigger fish.  This development is thanks to a court filing on the last day of 2015 that received only limited local publicity.

NBC's Today Skips Planned Parenthood Videos, Clinton E-Mail/Foundation Scandals in Year in Review.  With New Year's Eve upon us, NBC's Today dedicated a segment in its 9:00 a.m. hour on Thursday to looking back at the year in news, politics, and entertainment.  Not surprisingly, the liberal network made no mention of the Planned Parenthood baby parts video scandal, Hillary Clinton's private e-mail server, the Clinton Foundation scandal, and Benghazi to name just a few.  Speaking with Rolling Stone's Joe Levy, co-hosts Natalie Morales and Dylan Dreyer started with the year in news by not mentioning the scandal concerning Levy's publication and the University of Virginia but instead first talked about Bill Cosby and what's transpired concerning the sexual misconduct allegations made against him in the past year.

Muslim Gang-Rape Marathons Continue Across Europe: Where's The Press?  Political-correctness now extends to the identification of rapists in Europe where the press continually under-reports the high incidence of the most heinous sexual assaults and gang-rapes you can hardly imagine.  The true War on Women is being waged as we speak in the form of child-rape, sexual assault, paedophilia and gangs of Muslim men brutally raping women, in marathon fashion while crowds cheer them on and the press all but ignores.

Media fails to identify the race of 1,000 to 2,000 Black teens that shut down Kentucky mall.  The teenagers involved in this incident were Black, but media reports, including Fox News, omit the fact from their reports.  Notice how CBS just calls them "unruly".  Why?  It's obvious.  The media works from templates to fit their agenda.  Minorities behaving badly will always be unreported as much as possible.  But, had a White Cop shot one of these criminal Black teens, then the races of all involved would be indentified.

"Unstoppable" California Gas Leak Now Being Called Worst Catastrophe Since BP Spill.  This is, indeed, the biggest environmental catastrophe since the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010; and for now, there is no way to stop it.  This methane disaster is worse than can be sufficiently described in words, because while it's estimated well over 100,000 pounds of methane spew into the atmosphere every hour, the leak can't be halted, at least until spring.  Even then, that stoppage depends entirely on the efficacy of a proposed fix — which remains a dubiously open question.  According to the California Air Resources Board, methane — a greenhouse gas 72 times more impactful in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide — has been escaping from the Aliso Canyon site with force equivalent "to a volcanic eruption" for about two months now.

Harry Reid Under Investigation for Bribery in Utah.  The retiring senator from Nevada, Harry Reid is being investigated in the state of Utah for bribery.  He is being implicated in the investigation and prosecution of two former Attorney Generals of Utah in a pay to play scheme.  The two former AGs are Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow.  The case is being investigated by Davis County District Attorney Troy Rawlings.  Rawlings made the announcement after he was asked about the investigation by a local paper.  The case was originally investigated by the DOJ, but since Reid is not a republican, they refused to prosecute.  Apparently, they determined Reid was as innocent as Hillary Clinton and Lois Lerner.  They are also refusing to give information to Rawlings from their investigation.

"Swedish Problem" is Here: Muslims Gang Rape 39 year old woman in upscale DC exurb; crickets in major media.  The following story unfortunately is a sad and growing problem across the Western world, one that is going to be replicated in every town and city across the US unless citizens begin to vocally, forcefully and equivocally say NO.  Haymarket, VA is a wealthy, upscale exurb of Washington DC that has gone in less than 10 years from a sleepy majority white rural hamlet to a sprawling landscape of McMansions occupied by the multicultural box checking apparatchiks that fill out Tables of Organizations in bloated DC agencies.  It has turned a formerly solid red Republican congressional district rabid Blue.  With the multiculturalism and diversity and tolerance comes a crime wave that was before unknown.  If it's not black males in hoodies committing armed robberies, which has now come to be "expected", it's that most pronounced high water mark of multiculturalism:  Muslim gang rape.  Not a word in any of the major media.

So What's Up With The Huntington Park Illegal Immigrant Commissioner?  Back in August, the city of Huntington Park appointed two illegal immigrants, Julian Zatarain and Francisco Medina, to city commissions, despite protests from citizens.  The media reported that but have since been silent to their terms of office and how that's gone.  That is, except for one guy, blogger and Townhall columnist Arthur Schaper, who made a YouTube clip of his December encounter with one of the illegal immigrants now seated in the leadership of that city's government.

Federal prison for 'ringmaster' in giant Chicago fraud case involving politically connected black figures in Obama's circle.  So a bunch of Obama's Chicago buddies stole millions from taxpayers intended to go to worthy causes and used it for living large?  There's no particular reason why the national media should be interested, I guess.

Obama's blindness to Christian persecution.  The official and public indifference to the continued persecution and murder of Christians in the Middle East is a scandal of enormous proportions.  Only a few Internet websites are devoted to the rescue of persecuted Christians.  The media, like the president, is blind to outrage.  Expressions of concern by the leaders of the West are few.  The fact is that Christians face more persecution, in more countries, than any other religious group.  U.S. Christian sources estimate that 180 Christians are killed in 60 countries monthly merely for their faith.

AWOL Afghan pilots
Afghan trainees graduate at Moody Air Force Base; 2 students still missing .  The whereabouts of the two Afghan trainees remain unknown after they were last seen on Dec. 4.  The Department of Homeland Security said it is following a variety of electronic and physical leads.  Mirwais Kohistani and Shirzad Rohullah were reported missing on Dec. 8 when they didn't report for duty.


Two Afghan Air Force Students Reported Missing from Moody AFB.  The search continues for 2 Afghan Air Force students who were reported missing from Moody Air Force Base on Tuesday after they did not report for duty on Monday [12/7/2015].  We still do not know the names of the men or have a description of them.  Moody Air Force Base officials say they will not release that information.  Moody officials did tell Eyewitness News that the two are allowed to leave the base just like other airmen and do not require an escort.

2 Afghan trainees reported missing from Moody Air Force Base.  Two Afghan national air force students assigned to Moody Air Force Base near Valdosta have been reported missing.  The two men, whose names were not released, are both assigned to the 81st Fighter Squadron, but did not show up for work Monday [12/7/2015], Moody said in an emailed statement.  The two arrived at Moody in February and were screened before their arrival on U.S. soil, more than a year ago, according to officials.  "The students have trained alongside American counterparts for the entirety of 2015 and do not pose any apparent threat," Moody said.

Photos of missing Afghans withheld.  Moody Air Force Base officials are not releasing the names or photographs of two missing Afghan trainees.  Capt. Korey Fratini said Wednesday [12/10/2015] the decision to not release the names is a U.S. Air Force decision and not one that has been made by the base commander.  "It is a matter of policy," Fratini told The Valdosta Daily Times.

Missing Afghan Military Trainees Still on Loose — Names and Passport Photo's Released.  The police and FBI would NOT be releasing their identities if this was NOT a security threat.  This release increases the likelihood there is something very sketchy afoot.

Afghan Men Training at Georgia Air Force Base Reported Missing.  Two men from Afghanistan who are undergoing training at an Air Force base in Georgia have been reported missing, officials said Tuesday [12/8/2015].  Officials at Moody Air Force Base, near Valdosta, said in a statement the two students didn't report Monday to "their regular maintenance training" with the 81st Fighter Squadron.  The two men have been training at the base since February and "were screened prior to their arrival in the United States more than a year ago," according to the statement.  "There's zero evidence that these guys are terrorists," said Brian Childress, police chief in Valdosta, which is near Moody Air Force Base.

Right.  There's zero evidence that they are terrorists — except that they're Muslims, and AWOL and apparently on the run.  But there was no such evidence against the Boston Bombers either, until suddenly they were terrorists!

Report: Released Guantanamo Detainee Now al-Qaeda Leader in Yemen; Will Media Cover?  According to a Wednesday night [12/9/2015] post on the website Long War Journal by Thomas Joscelyn, a former detainee held at Guantanamo Bay named Ibrahim Qosi has rejoined the world of Islamic terrorism and ascended to a leadership post in al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) following his release in July 2012.  With this shocking story coming as the Obama administration still hopes to close the prison, the question going forward from a media standpoint is this:  Will the media show any interest in this threat to national security and failure on the part of the adminstration?

'Meet the Press': AG Loretta Lynch Not Asked About Pledge to Criminalize Anti-Muslim Speech.  Out here in the hinterlands, when we rubes hear no less than the Attorney General of the United States pledge to a specific group that she "will taken action" against certain kinds of "rhetoric" directed at that group, like all threats of fascism, we consider that kind of a big deal.  On Sunday's [12/6/2015] "Meet the Press," although Lynch had made that exact pledge to a Muslim group just a few days earlier, it was not considered newsworthy, or even raised during her Sunday [12/6/2015] appearance.  Had moderator Chuck Todd's interview been eaten up only by a search for news about the San Bernardino terror attack, one could forgive the oversight.  But it wasn't.

Censored: Nets Ignore 'Landmark' Senate Vote to Defund Planned Parenthood.  The liberal media often say more by what they don't report than by what they do report — especially when it comes to topics that challenge their agenda.  During the Friday morning [12/4/2015] news shows, all three broadcast networks censored Thursday's vote to strip federal funding of Planned Parenthood.  While ABC, NBC and CBS turned a blind-eye, other traditional media outlets and the pro-life movement reported the "landmark victory."  The reconciliation bill, which would repeal key provisions in Obamacare in addition to defunding Planned Parenthood, passed 52 to 47.  If made law, the bill would transfer taxpayer dollars from the abortion giant to comprehensive health care centers.

Networks Ignore Officer Killed in Planned Parenthood Shooting Was Pro-Life.  The Bible says, "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you" and that appears to be the standard by which one man lived, who gave his life Friday [11/27/2015] protecting those he disagreed with on abortion.  But you won't hear that story from the media because the pro-life "Good Samaritan" doesn't fit their agenda.

PP and MSM condemning decent Americans.  [There have been] numerous attacks on cops and whites across America, in which assailants proudly proclaimed their motivation to be BLM's war on cops and whites.  And yet, the BLM attacks on whites are purposely unreported, along with the epidemic of black-on-black violence.  Ironically, murders and shootings are highest in Democrat-controlled cites that have the toughest gun laws.  For example:  in Chicago over the Thanksgiving weekend, 30 people were shot, and 8 died.  Was this widely reported nationally?  [No.]  And yet every rare occasion in which a cop kills a black, regardless of the circumstances, is broadcast 24/7, made front-page news.  This year, Baltimore broke its 43-year record for murders, mostly black on black.

The Real Scandal(s) Behind the Muslim MU Hair-Dragger.  On Wednesday, November 25, Youssif Z. Omar made international news.  According to Columbia, Missouri, police, the 53-year-old Omar stopped by the local public high school, spotted a 14-year-old relative not wearing a hijab, grabbed the girl "very violently by the hair," and pulled her down a flight of stairs.  Once outside, Omar slapped the girl in the face and pulled her by the hair into his car. [...] As of Monday morning [11/30/2015], the daily Missourian, the award-winning publication of the university's overpraised journalism school, had yet to mention a story that had been covered in the days prior from New York to London.  From all appearances the J-School is training its students to avoid stories with inconvenient narratives, a useful skill, one supposes, if they hope to fit into America's major newsrooms.

Student in Custody Targeted 'White Devils': Will the Media Cover?  The media has been carrying water for pro-abortion activists since the Friday shooting at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado in trying to hold the pro-life movement/conservatives, along with the Republican Party, responsible for the murders for their "fierce criticism" of the abortionist organization.  However, a more recent incident of threatened violence leads one to wonder if the press will advance the same narrative with Black Lives Matter and other "racial justice" activists.  On Monday [11/30/2015], Andy Thomason of the Chronicle of Higher Education reported that University of Illinois at Chicago student had been arrested in connection with an online post where the user threatened "to kill 16 white students or staff members in retaliation for the police shooting of... Chicago teenager" Laquan McDonald.  Thomason quoted from the Chicago Tribune's reporting on the arrest, and noted that "the University of Chicago canceled classes on Monday after the FBI passed along the threat, which described a detailed plan to 'do my part and rid the world of white devils.'"

AP buries key detail on who removed ad campaign in NYC.  Numerous news outlets suggested in headlines Wednesday [11/25/2015] that Amazon was behind pulling the ad campaign, despite that the call reportedly came from [Governor] Cuomo.

Obama signs bill making Gitmo closure tougher.  Away from public view, US President Barack Obama signed a defense bill Wednesday [11/25/2015] barbed with measures designed to undo his bid to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay.  In a terse statement, the White House said Obama has signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2016, along with several other pieces of legislation.

Why Was ISIS Terror Operative Nihad Rosic Arrested in Plainfield, Indiana?  Six individuals of Bosnian origin from St. Louis; Rockford, Illinois; and Utica, New York, were indicted last month on charges of supplying money and equipment to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).  And yet late last week it was revealed that one of those terror suspects, Nihad Rosic, who is also one of two suspects additionally charged with conspiring to kill and maim others in a foreign country and had attempted to board a plane back in July 2014 to fly to Syria to join ISIS, had actually been apprehended in the small town of Plainfield, Indiana, right outside Indianapolis.

The Media is Free, and is Everywhere Chained to a Narrative.  A particularly brazen case of censorship occurred in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.  When news of the horror broke, ecstatic Palestinians took to the streets.  Yasser Arafat's men arrived to break up the party before incriminating images could go viral.  Photo journalists were trapped inside a Nablus hotel while the carnival in the streets went on.  A cameraman for Associated Press Television News was taken to an office and threatened by Arafat's cabinet secretary, Ahmed Abdel Rahman, who hinted darkly that should any footage be broadcast, the PA could not "guarantee his life."  Widespread manipulation and control of the media — foreign and local — is amply documented.

NBC Ignores Kentucky Electing Anti-ObamaCare GOP Governor.  On Tuesday, Kentucky voters elected Matt Bevin to be its next governor, only the second time a Republican has served this position in over 40 years, yet NBC's Today completely ignored the story during its Wednesday morning [11/4/2015] broadcast.  ABC's Good Morning America and CBS This Morning both offered news briefs highlighting the Tea Party candidate's anti-ObamaCare platform, which helped the first-time elected official win over Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway.

Minnesota Media Poll Shows Donald Trump on Top and Defeating Hillary — Promptly Deleted Their own Findings.  The operational arm of the DNC, or perhaps Senator Al Franken, must have been urgently dispatched to contact KTSP (ABC 5) News in Minnesota after they published results from their own sponsored SurveyUSA poll/survey.  Why?  Because they deleted the lead in paragraph shortly after posting it.  Our discovery was accidental.

Harsh: Obama Official Who Pled Guilty to Espionage Gets... $250 Fine.  Glenn Woodell, a NASA supervisor who pled guilty to violating U.S. espionage laws involving a Chinese NASA contractor was given a slap on the wrist with six months' probation and a $250 fine, the Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.  Daniel Jobson, a Woodell colleague and fellow NASA supervisor, had his espionage charges reduced to a misdemeanor and was released without any penalty.  The lenient plea deals were quietly delivered October 26 in U.S. District Court in Newport News, Virginia.  The U.S. Attorneys office did not to [sic] issue a press release about the deals and declined comment when contacted by the DCNF.

AP Quickly Takes Story on Awful Factory Orders Off 'Top Business News' Page.  Today's news from the Census Bureau on September's factory orders and shipments, released at 10 a.m., was extremely disappointing.  Thus, it is utterly unsurprising that Martin Crutsinger's AP story covering that report was not at the "Top Business News" page a mere six hours after its release (it likely came off even earlier, as I didn't check the page until just after 4 p.m.).  The AP economics writer's coverage, though bit of an improvement over prior months' efforts, still left important gaping holes.

Welfare Mom Has 52 Kids/Grand-kids: A victim of Leftist Deceptions, Promises and Betrayals.  The owner of a chain of Detroit abortion clinics was caught on video cautioning an audience.  A woman identified as Renee Chelian said she feared the cover of the New York Times might alert the public that they used garbage disposals to get rid of the carcasses of aborted babies.  Ms. Chelian does not realize that abortionists have nothing to fear from the New York Times nor the rest of the mainstream media.  The MSM continues to do everything in its power to hide Planned Parenthood's house of horrors from the public.

Not News: Obama-Clinton Emails Render His Related Kroft Interview Statements False.  A Friday evening story at the New York Times covered the Obama administration's decision to "try to block the release of a handful of emails between President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton."  In it, reporters Michael D. Shear and Michael S. Schmidt demonstrated that President Obama undoubtedly did not tell the truth in his interview with CBS News's Steve Kroft in a 60 Minutes episode which aired on October 11.

Networks Censor Justice Department Ending Probe Into IRS Scandal.  ABC, CBS, and NBC's evening newscasts on Friday [10/23/2015] all failed to cover the Justice Department announcing that it would be ending its investigation into the IRS's targeting of conservative groups.  The Big Three networks' news program did find time to air reporting on the top Google searches for Halloween costumes, the fewer number of turkeys available for upcoming Thanksgiving dinners, and the controversy over the first bear hunt in Florida in 20 years.

Widow of runner slain at random by machete-wielding schizophrenic kills herself three weeks later.  The widow of a jogger who was brutally hacked to death by a machete-wielding schizophrenic in a random attack three weeks ago has committed suicide.  At the time, Patti Stevens, 54, told local newspapers she was 'lost' without David, 'the love of her life' and husband of 25 years.  He was killed by 21-year-old Thomas Johnson, a mentally ill former football player, as he ran along the popular White Rock Creek Trail in Dallas on the morning of October 12.

The Editor says...
If you get all your information from the television stations in Dallas, you probably haven't heard this news, because the local TV stations generally do not report suicides.

Proof our southern border is under attack by Muslim extremists.  [Scroll down]  First, the U.S. government has received an urgent alert from the government of Mexico that Syrian military-age males are on the ground in Mexico and feared headed for the U.S. border.  U.S. border agents are on extreme high alert.  This crucial threat has not been announced by our government.  Why are the American people being kept in the dark?  Why isn't major media like The New York Times, CNN or Fox News reporting this?

FBI: Muslim Beats Up Jet Blue Flight Attendant, Threatens To Blow Up Plane.  There has been scant coverage of this incident.  No big media, no mug shots, nothing.  But it's a big story.  Punching out flight attendants and threatening to blow up the plane is terrorism.

According to the left, Israeli citizens deserve to be murdered.  It's been clear for years that the left has been losing the moral plot.  But I never thought I would see it apologise for, even defend, the stabbing to death of Jews.  The silver lining for the left is that it's impossible for it to sink any lower.  This is as low as it gets.  The response in the West to the spate of foul murders by car, knife and meat cleaver in Israel has been almost as shocking as the killings themselves.  Many have stayed silent, a global version of "bystander culture", where people look awkwardly at the ground as someone is battered in front of them.  The Western media is currently a shameless shuffling bystander to murders in Israel.

Surprise: Cybersecurity Deteriorated Under Hillary Clinton.  In an Associated Press exclusive, Ken Dilanian notes just how bad cybersecurity was during Hillary's tenure as Secretary of State.  The article is primarily published in local news sites, though the NY TImes does have it as a web only piece, not in their published paper.  Other national news outlets, such as ABC, NBC, CBS, Washington Post, MSNBC, for instance?  Not at this time[.]

Kermit Gosnell on wheels:
Networks Ignore 14 Containers of 'Human Tissue' Found in Abortionist's Car.  The media tend to eat up horror stories — except when abortion is involved.  Local stations first broke the news Oct. 13 that police discovered 14 containers of "human tissue" in a Michigan abortionist's car.  The horror story eerily echoed reports from the case of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell — and, like Gosnell, it didn't tempt coverage from the broadcast networks.  All three, ABC, NBC and CBS, turned a blind eye to the news.  This is the story ABC, NBC and CBS censored from their news shows[.]

CO-OP Flop: The Biggest Obamacare Disaster You've Never Heard About.  It's an Obamacare story with every imaginable outrage — blatant conflicts of interest, millions of tax dollars going to political cronies, thousands of Americans left without health insurance, lavish pay for incompetent executives, federal funds diverted illegally, multiple congressional investigations, insider trading convictions and big decisions made behind closed doors.  Tragically, there is even a child abuser.  But search the New York Times web site for "Obamacare co-ops" and nothing comes up.  Just three entries appear for the same search on the Washington Post web site.

3 out of 4 U.S. Military Deaths in Afghanistan Occurred Under Obama.  An estimated 75 percent of the all U.S. military deaths and about 90 percent of the injuries linked to the ongoing war in Afghanistan have occurred under President Obama's watch, according to a Breitbart News tally.  President Obama, citing a "fragile" security situation at risk of deteriorating, announced today that he will be extending the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan for an undetermined amount of time, handing over the conflict to his successor.  In making the announcement, the President appeared clueless as to how many Americans were killed in Afghanistan in 2014 and this year.

Miraculous! U.S. Media Made the Refugee Crisis Go Away!  The refugee crisis in Europe has disappeared from U.S. media reports but nothing has changed except for the coverage.

Muslim refugee riots ignored in U.S. media blackout.  Sweden, seen by many American progressives as the model of multiculturalism and tolerance, has been experiencing increasingly violent unrest involving immigrants in its three largest cities, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo.  Sweden, along with Germany, make up Europe's two most generous welfare states.  They are also the most welcoming of Islamic immigrants, more than a million of which have flooded into the continent this year from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and North Africa.  The unrest and destabilization in Sweden, which has received zero coverage in the U.S. media even as President Obama plans to ramp up his own refugee welcoming program, is exactly the type of upheaval that the global elite have planned for all of Western Europe and America, analyst Paul McGuire told WND in a[n] Oct. 6 article.

Editing flap: TV 'edits' 5-hour Planned Parenthood hearing to 1 minute.  Network and cable TV news are coming under fire for repeatedly smearing as "heavily edited" the controversial secretly taped Planned Parenthood videos of officers discussing the sale of aborted fetus parts.  After Tuesday's [9/29/2015] five-hour House hearing on the issue with witness Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood, the media is being slammed for doing exactly what the producer of the videos did — and worse — editing hours of tape for a watchable news segment.

National Media has news blackout on 14 Shot in 15 Hours in Chicago, Why is that?".  I pretty much know the reason has a lot to do with Chicago being Barack Obama's hometown.  Also, Black on Black carnage doesn't fit the corrupt media machine's template.  [Video clip]

10 Stories The Media Won't Tell You About The Pope's USA Visit.  [#7] The Pope Equates Planned Parenthood to State-Sponsored Execution:  Some pro-lifers are probably dissatisfied with Pope Francis's comments about the sacredness of life during the congressional address.  Although he did affirm his staunch pro-life position when he exhorted Americans to "protect and defend life at every stage of its development," he immediately shifted the focus to capital punishment.

Obama's pen strikes again.  The most important story you never heard anything about in the mainstream media is when President Obama picked up his fabled pen and signed an executive order on Tuesday, Sept. 15, entitled "Using Behavioral Science Insights to Better Serve the American People."  Ladies and gentlemen, you have just been "Nudged."

NBC Omits Defense Dept. Finding Hillary E-Mails; ABC and CBS Minimize.  Friday's [9/25/2015] NBC Nightly News failed to cover how the Defense Department revealed earlier in the day that they found an "email chain that Hillary Clinton did not give to the State Department, as a Reuters report put it.  Mrs. Clinton exchanged the e-mails with then-General David Petraeus between January and February of 2009.  Anchor Lester Holt did air a 16-second news brief on the other "big news from Washington" — Michelle Obama and the first lady of China revealing the name of the panda cub at the National Zoo.  The same evening, ABC's World News Tonight and CBS Evening News both gave news briefs on the development in the e-mail investigation, which together lasted a total of 43 seconds of air time.

Fiorina forces Big Media to face videos they've avoided.  You know the video series, now 10 episodes presenting an increasingly dark view of Planned Parenthood's cash-for-parts business.  You know, also, if you've been following it at all, that traditional media outlets have spent months avoiding almost any coverage of or comment about them. [...] To the extent there was any reporting on the Fusion GPS investigation by Big Media, it was essentially stenographer service for Planned Parenthood, and that was enough for pro-abortion pundits to declare the whole business debunked.  Enough of that.

The Corrupt Leftist Media and Interracial Violent Crime.  The Corrupt Leftist Media is obsessed with stamping out any hint of what leftists consider to be racial "heresy," and has shown particular animus toward websites which accurately and honestly report inter-racial violent crime.  As in many other contexts, honest and accurate reportage makes the Corrupt Leftist Media look very bad, in contrast, and they know it.  The Corrupt Leftist Media's standard narrative is one in which innocent black victims are constantly under assault by violent white assailants, and those who disprove this laughable narrative are subjected to the full wrath and fury of the Corrupt Leftist Media, as the CofCC experienced in the wake of the tragic mass-murders in Charleston back in June.  To advance their false narrative, any white-on-black violent crime committed in the U.S. instantly becomes the "lead" story for days on end:  Meanwhile, black-on-white violent crimes are routinely "spiked" by the Corrupt Leftist Media, and receive only local coverage, if at all.  The so-called "Wichita Massacre" is a good example of this phenomenon.

What's The Name Of The Guy Who Complained To Trump About Muslims?  No, seriously.  What's his name?  I'm asking because nobody else is. [...] Some people are speculating that the guy was a plant.  I don't know if he was or not.  Nobody does.  That's the point.  Nobody even knows his name, and nobody's asking.  We're now half a week into this "scandal," and all these smart, dedicated journalists aren't the least bit curious about the identity of this (allegedly) bigoted (alleged) Trump supporter.  Y'know, the one they can't stop talking about.  He wasn't wearing a mask.  He didn't hide his face from the cameras.  Why don't we know his name? [...] The identity of someone who causes problems for a political candidate isn't quite so important when it's a Republican.

Iran's involvement with 9/11.  The most remarkable aspect of this US surrender to Iran is that the Iranian regime is not some hypothetical threat.  It has been perpetrating acts of war against Western interests for more than three decades — including playing a key role in the 9/11 attacks on America.  That's not just my opinion.  It's the view of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.  In a judgment that has received virtually no attention, federal Judge George B. Daniels found in December 2011 that Iran, with the participation of its Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, was directly and heavily involved in the 9/11 atrocities.

Why is CNN Hiding Its Poll Showing Deep Distrust on Iran Deal?  CNN did a poll on the Iran deal from September 4 to 8.  On Sunday morning [9/13/2015], CNN pollster Jennifer Agiesta (formerly of The Washington Post) reported the results — another poll showing deep skepticism about Iran, and the prospect that Iran will cheat on any nuclear deal.  Obama has a bad disapproval rating on Iran.  You'd never know this from all the "major victory for Obama" talk on this deal.

2 Months: Networks Aired Only 0.13% of Planned Parenthood Videos.  Instead of watching the news, it's time for pro-life Americans to be the news — to use social media and word-of-mouth — about Planned Parenthood.  Because the networks won't.  Since July 14, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has released 16 hours, 11 minutes and 35 seconds of footage exposing Planned Parenthood's practice of harvesting aborted baby parts.  In those past two months, ABC, NBC and CBS have only aired one minute and 13 seconds of these videos (with audio) during their news shows.

Top 20 Photos of Helpless Muslim Refugees in Europe You'll Never See in Legacy Media.  Why won't U.S. media show you how Muslim "refugees" are making themselves at home in Europe?  After all, the Democrat party is demanding that Obama bring 200,000 more of these "refugees" into American cities and towns — at taxpayer expense.  The least they could do is show you what you'll be getting for your money.  [See video clip here.]

NBC Censors Rain-Soaked Patriots Prayer after NFL Opener.  One of television's most sacred and central responsibilities is making sure they only display images that are "right and appropriate" for the viewing public to consume.  Yet, judging by NBC's decision to not show the post-game prayer gathering of players on the field after the Patriots' 28-21 victory over the Steelers in the Thursday night [9/10/2015] Kickoff Special, NBC clearly believes public displays of the Christian faith are not suitable for all audiences.  It isn't as if the prayer didn't happen.  Despite the heavy downpour, members of the Patriots and some of their coaching staff knelt and bowed their heads.

Not Even House Hearings Can Break Nets' Planned Parenthood Blackout.  Say this for ABC, CBS and NBC:  they're nothing if not tenacious.  The networks have been diligent, even relentless, in their efforts to ignore the Planned Parenthood scandal, proving that when they circle the wagons around an ideological comrade, they stay circled.  The networks have maintained their blackout of news about the hidden camera videos from the Center for Medical Progress showing that America's largest government subsidized abortion mill trades in a robust aftermarket of aborted baby parts — and does so with all the sensitivity and humanity of an automotive chop-shop.  Last night, the nets upped their game; ignoring U.S. House Judiciary Committee hearings on the videos.

Media Tune Out 'Black Lives Matter' Anti-Cop Death Threats.  Hewing to their corrupt anti-cop narrative, the Big Three news networks refuse to cover Black Lives Matter activists chanting death threats within hours of a cold-blooded police execution linked to their movement.  While ABC, NBC and CBS covered the deadly ambushing of a white Houston sheriff's deputy by a black man, who sneaked up behind the uniformed officer at a gas station and fired 15 bullets at close range, they left out the related news that Black Lives Matter protesters shortly thereafter demonized cops as "pigs" and called for them to "fry."  Even so, some of the networks blasted the deputy's boss for tying the racist assassination to the violent anti-cop rhetoric spewed by Black Lives Matter agitators.

Gay Crime and the Media.  The legacy media has twisted itself through several dimensions in in its effort to hide the fact that murderer Vester Flanagan/Bryce Williams was gay.  This is typical of the media response to violent crimes by homosexuals in recent years.

Bozell, More Than Two Dozen Pro-Life Leaders Petition Network Execs for More Planned Parenthood Coverage.  On Tuesday, Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell, along with more than two dozen pro-life leaders, sent letters to the network news chiefs at ABC, CBS, and NBC, protesting their lack of coverage of shocking Planned Parenthood sting videos.  ABC News, in particularly, was particularly egregious, as it "has not even aired one second of video footage (with audio) of the Center for Medical Progress's investigative videos," Bozell noted.  "This is outrageous and inexcusable," adding:  [case-by-case synopses of the {first} seven Planned Parenthood sting videos].

MSNBC cuts back Katrina anniversary coverage to avoid awkward references.  MSNBC has cut back its coverage of the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina to avert awkward references to outlandish claims Brian Williams made about his time in New Orleans, it is reported.  Williams, 56, asserted in a 2006 interview that he had seen a 'face-down' dead body float past his hotel window in the Louisiana city's French Quarter in the aftermath of Katrina in September 2005.

The Western Establishment's Concealment of Muslim Persecution of Christians.  On June 11, Shillman Fellow Raymond Ibrahim delivered a lecture on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.  It was part of Coptic Solidarity's sixth annual conference.  His topic was the failures and cover ups of the Western establishment — academia, government, and mainstream media — concerning the rampant persecution of Christians in the Middle East. [Video clip]

Now We Know Why Reporters Won't Cover The Planned Parenthood Videos.  Earlier this week, a seventh video detailing Planned Parenthood's gruesome organ-trafficking operation was released.  In it, a former procurement technician who worked with the organization described how Planned Parenthood harvested a brain from a baby boy whose heart was still beating.  If you use BuzzFeed as your primary source of news, however, you'd know nothing about the story.  The same goes for the video in which a top Planned Parenthood official said she needed a good price on aborted baby organs because, "I want a Lamborghini."  That little detail was also never reported.  In fact, it's been over a month since BuzzFeed published any standalone stories featuring details from newly released undercover videos.

Julian Bond Dead at 75; Radical Background Ignored by Media.  While ignoring deep and decades-long communist sympathies, the mainstream media used the death of Julian Bond (shown) to glorify a radical revolutionary, calling him a "hero," "gifted," "smart," a "friend" of President Obama, "passionate," "eloquent," and a civil rights "champion." [...] If all those future generations have to rely on for a complete and accurate picture of the life of Julian Bond are the musings and disinformation transmitted by the national media, they will be ill-informed indeed.  Missing from eulogies following his death was any mention of Bond's trips to Cuba to celebrate the communist takeover in 1959, and then again in 2006, to confirm his initial suspicions.

Cover-Up: Major Newspapers Keep Hillary's E-Mails Off the Front Page.  Four of the country's largest newspapers on Wednesday [8/12/2015] kept the latest developments in Hillary Clinton's growing E-mail scandal off the front page (one kept it out of the paper completely).  The revelation that the Democratic candidate had top secret information on her server was relegated to the bottom of page A13 in the New York Times.  The Washington Post managed to place the news that Clinton will finally turn over her server on A2.  The Los Angeles Times hid the story on A9.  All of these newspapers, however, did better than USA Today, which completely skipped Clinton's scandal in the print edition.

Press Downplays, Hides EPA's Responsibility for Western River Contamination.  On Wednesday [8/5/2015], the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency committed an act which would have likely become instant national news if a private entity had done the same thing.  On Friday, John Merline at Investors' Business Daily succinctly noted that the EPA "dumped a million gallons of mine waste into Animas River in Colorado, turning it into what looked like Tang, forcing the sheriff's office to close the river to recreational users."  Oh, and it "also failed to warn officials in downstream New Mexico about the spill."  Yet here we are four days later, and the story has gotten very little visibility outside of center-right blogs and outlets.  That's largely explained by how the wire services have handled the story.

Will God Still Bless America?  The MSM has made sure the masses know nothing about Obama and Democrats supporting and covering up the PP illegal baby body parts chop shop scandal.  And yet, everyone knows about the death of a lion.  The MSM also makes sure (King) Obama can lie with impunity.  In my youth, I naively thought public officials cannot lie because we have video.  If Obama lies to America and the MSM refuses to call him on it, does it make a sound?

Five Arrests In Michigan Racial Mob Beating — Twenty Black Teens Brutalize White Victim.  Reverse the races and this would be playing 24/7 on CNN.  However, specifically because it does not fit the preferred media narrative, it's doubtful this story will reach a single national news broadcast.

Why History will Curse the Democrats.  Nothing like this has happened in the 66 years of the nuclear age.  The world is entering unknown territory, with the first sworn Armageddon cult equipped with nukes.  Destroy a stable balance of power and the world becomes much more dangerous, not less.  That is exactly what Obama has done, and not a single liberal newspaper has had the guts to say it.

Thanks To Media Blackout, Most Americans Are In The Dark About Planned Parenthood Videos.  The vast majority of Americans — a whopping 70 percent — have heard little to nothing about videos showing the involvement of Planned Parenthood in the harvesting and trafficking of human fetal organs.  The revelations from the videos have led to federal and state investigations, calls to end the $530 million a year in taxpayer funding, and questions from human rights activists about the propriety of the practice.  Yet the media have so struggled to cover the story, much less cover it well, that one third of the public has heard literally nothing about them while another 38 percent have heard only a little.  Democrats are particularly uninformed on the videos, with more than three out of four reporting they have heard little to nothing about the videos.

GMA: No Time for Planned Parenthood Vote; 18 Minutes to Boy Band.  ABC's Good Morning America, a two hour-long program, on Tuesday [8/4/2015] completely ignored the Senate's vote on Planned Parenthood, yet devoted 18 minutes of air time to boy band One Direction.  Only CBS This Morning bothered with the Republican effort to defund the abortion group, allowing a meager 25 seconds.  Even in that scant amount of time, co-host Norah O'Donnell managed to spin the undercover footage of the organization in a friendly way.

Where is the Coverage of Juanita Broaddrick?  Juanita Broaddrick's story is a credible one, and one of the many "bimbo eruptions" that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton handled during her husband Bill's presidential campaign As Linda Tripp, confidante of former Clinton intern Monica Lewinsky, told the Daily Mail how Hillary both enabled and covered up Bill's many dalliances:  Tripp said:  'His political success was largely dependent upon Hillary.  He owed her a great deal.  As is widely acknowledged, Hillary took care of all the 'bimbo eruptions' of which there were thousands in order to present to the world an electable candidate.

Networks Refuse to Report on Latest IRS Scandal Revelations.  None of these three stunning IRS scandal developments, that have unfolded this week, have yet to be reported on by any of the Big Three network evening or morning shows.  The cover-up behind the IRS targeting scandal continues to unravel, despite President Barack Obama's protest to The Daily Show's Jon Stewart last week that "the truth of the matter is there was not some big conspiracy."  This week's revelations provided the perfect opportunity to catch Obama in a "gotcha" moment but so far ABC, CBS and NBC have reacted with total silence.

Nets Maintain Blackout on New Planned Parenthood Video; CNN Covers.  As of Wednesday morning [7/29/2015], ABC, CBS, and NBC's morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the third video from the Center for Medical Progress, which featured a whistle-blower's account of "picking" through the remains of aborted babies in order to find organs that could be sold for medical research.  The Big Three networks have actually devoted more time to the slaying of a lion in Zimbabwe than all three videos from pro-life organization.

Nets Spend 30 Minutes on Lion; Censor Abortion Videos.  The broadcast news shows covered Cecil the lion more in one day than they spent on the Planned Parenthood videos in two weeks — and that discrepancy only continues to grow.  In two days, ABC, NBC and CBS have spent 30 minutes, 1 second on Cecil, a famed African lion shot by an American dentist.  But anchors couldn't spare nearly as much time for the videos exposing Planned Parenthood's harvesting of aborted baby parts.  Since the release of the Center for Medical Progress' first video two weeks ago, the networks have spent only 11 minutes, 13 seconds on the story.

CNN's Camerota Downplays Baby Organ Harvesting Outrage; Suggests Price Fixing.  On Tuesday's [7/28/2015] New Day, CNN's Alisyn Camerota made no mention of the outrage over Planned Parenthood varying its abortion techniques in order to preserve unborn babies' organs for medical research, as was revealed in two undercover videos. Instead, Camerota zeroed in on "these representatives from Planned Parenthood negotiating" over prices for these organs.  She even touted how the "exchange of fetal tissue... obviously, does a lot of good.  There's a lot of research — cures for diseases that come from it."

Panic in Pittsburgh: Media Struggling to Ignore Black Mob Violence.  Large-scale black mob violence is now an accepted part of life in the Pittsburgh area.  The latest example came last week, when hundreds of black people rioted outside of a carnival at St. Basil's parish.  No one in the press called it a riot.  Neither did they identify the hundreds of people involved as black.

Ted Cruz Slams 'Passionately Pro-Abortion Media' for 'Hiding' Videos.  [Scroll down]  During the event, MRC Culture asked Sen. Cruz if the the media and journalists have done enough to cover the videos.  "No, of course they're not," Cruz began.  "The mainstream media wants to do everything they can to hide these videos from the American people."  In the interview, Sen. Cruz accused the media of keeping the truth about Planned Parenthood from Americans.  "When you see a senior Planned Parenthood official say she wants to sell so many body parts of unborn children, she can buy a Lamborghini?  Those are not the values of the American people."

Nets Ignore Controversy Swirling Around Secret Side Deals With Iran.  Despite the revelation on Wednesday [7/22/2015] that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) made secret side deals with Iran over nuclear weapons inspections and refused to disclose the details to the U.S. Congress, NBC, ABC, and CBS all ignored the story.  By contrast, Fox News's Special Report led with the breaking news that evening as anchor Bret Baier informed viewers:  "As President Obama continues to both court and mock critics of his legacy-shaping nuclear agreement with Iran, there is word tonight of a separate covert deal between the Islamic Republic and the U.N.'s nuclear team.  Two of them, in fact, that are not going to be shared with members of Congress nor with you."

The Coming Confrontation, Part 2.  Texas is in the forefront of the immigration battle. What are the numbers like in Texas?  As a state that has been willing to provide the security that the federal government will not, the challenges are still daunting. Statistics released by the federal government show:  There were 862 illegal alien sex offenders deported by Texas, 27% of which were sex offenses against children.  Half of all Federal crimes were in 5 of 94 districts along the Mexican border.  This is not common knowledge because the media will not report it, and the Democrats see it as collateral damage on the way to a foolproof majority of Democratic voters.  What are a few sexual offenses against minors if you can keep the border open and bring in more voters who you can bribe with benefits?

All Hail Our Banking Overlords!  You really have to be paying attention to see what's truly going on these days.  The keepers of the system, that is the banking elites, now openly control everything — though you'd never know that by listening to the media.

Immigration: The Problem That Must Not Be Named.  It's frustratingly common: The mainstream media discusses a social problem obviously impacted by immigration — overcrowding, low wages, increasing poverty, etc. — but assiduously avoids any mention of immigration.  To much of the media, using the word immigration in the context of any social problem has become a taboo, [...]

ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN Sunday Shows Ignore Planned Parenthood Scandal.  Last week, the Center for Medical Progress released a damning undercover video in which a senior official at Planned Parenthood discussed the organization's practice of manipulating an abortion to salvage baby parts to be sold for medical research, but ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN all ignored the story during their Sunday morning political talk shows (ABC's This Week, CBS's Face the Nation, CNN's State of the Union and NBC's Meet the Press).  Fox News Sunday was the only one to cover Planned Parenthood during its broadcast, and devoted more than seven minutes to the controversial video.

Mainstream Media Refuses To Give Planned Parenthood Scandal Legs. The Question Is: Why?  Whenever abortion pops into the picture, emotions run high.  But where do mainstream newspapers get off simply not reporting the news?  This is what happened Tuesday when a video of a Planned Parenthood exec discussing the sale of aborted fetus parts over lunch went viral.  Who eats salad while discussing fetal livers?

Huge Media Cover-Up of Criminal Charges Against Obama Bundler, Gay Leader.  Last November, Terrence Bean was taken into custody in Portland, Oregon following an indictment by a jury that charged him with multiple sex crimes against minors.  Now additional child sexual abuse charges have been made against him.  Why isn't the media covering this?  Because he's a prominent gay leader, that's why.  Bean is the co-founder of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the most influential gay group in the nation; he is also a big donor to President Obama and even flew on Air Force One with him.  The Associated Press (AP) chose not to cover the latest allegations, but not because it has no interest in new charges against alleged sex offenders:  it does if the accused is a priest.

There Was a Significant Terrorist Attack in France This Week and the Mainstream Media Hasn't Even Bothered Telling You.  Three deliberate, simultaneous explosions rocked a major petrochemical plant in France on Bastille Day, but as usual it is still 'too early to talk about terrorism'.  Despite the nature and severity of the attack, which French investigations have conceded was deliberate and with a delicious turn of French understatement "malicious", yesterday's explosions at the Berre L'Etang refinery in second city Marseilles failed to make the front page of a single English-language newspaper this morning.  The explosions took place on Tuesday morning [7/14/2015] and set alight two enormous petrochemical tanks which stood half a kilometre apart, immediately ruling out the possibility of blaming an industrial accident.

Networks Censor Obama's Assault On Suburbs.  ABC, CBS and NBC refused to cover the administration's official unveiling of a policy as ambitious and politically radioactive as its socialized medicine scheme.  Under sweeping new regulations finalized last week, more than 1,250 municipalities across the country now must diversify neighborhoods through rezoning or risk losing billions in federal funding from the Housing and Urban Development Department.  Besides the fact that legal scholars view the federal mandate — whose goal is racially balancing the nation, ZIP code by ZIP code — as patently unconstitutional, it also threatens to import violent crime into the suburbs while lowering property values and negatively impacting local schools.  As kitchen table issues go, this is huge; yet the evening news didn't see it that way.  In fact, newscasts completely blacked out the issue after HUD released the rule last week.

Big 3 broadcast nets deep-six Obama's suburb-busting plan.  This is an issue that literally hits voters where they live, by using the denial of federal funding to override local control and force communities to provide low-income housing distributed to approved minority groups.  Investor's Business Daily reports that all three broadcast networks ignored the story that affects their viewers more directly than almost any other issue. [...] The gamble is that low-information voters simply will not notice.  And that gamble will pay off only if GOP candidates for president refuse to bring up the issue, fearful of offending minorities, and if social media remain silent.

It looks like Lois Lerner may have also been behind conservative targeting in Wisconsin.  Remember those horrifying police raids in Wisconsin a while back?  With no hyperbole, it was modern-day tyranny that should have incensed the entire nation, regardless of political affiliation or viewpoint.  Instead, very few ever even heard about it.  Why?  Because progressives were the perpetrators and conservatives were the targets.  The raids were part of a so-called "investigation" of conservatives who were supporting Scott Walker.  Well new email evidence suggests that Lois Lerner may have been in cahoots with a Wisconsin official regarding the investigation.

Media Hide Facts, Call Everyone Else a Liar.  When Donald Trump said something not exuberantly enthusiastic about Mexican immigrants, the media's response was to boycott him.  One thing they didn't do was produce any facts showing he was wrong.  Trump said:  "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best.  They're not sending you.  They're not sending you.  They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems to us.  They're bringing drugs.  They're bringing crime.  They're rapists.  And some, I assume, are good people."  The first thing a news fact-checker would have noticed is:  THE GOVERNMENT WON'T TELL US HOW MANY IMMIGRANTS ARE COMMITTING CRIMES IN AMERICA.  Wouldn't that make any person of average intelligence suspicious?  Not our media.  They're in on the cover-up.

Networks Yawn at News IRS Destroyed 24,000 Lois Lerner E-Mails.  On Thursday night [6/25/2015], the major broadcast networks ignored a new development in the IRS scandal that the agency erased 422 backup tapes and in turn destroyed 24,000 e-mails of embattled former official Lois Lerner.  With ABC, CBS, and NBC on the sidelines, the Fox News Channel's Special Report offered a full report on Thursday's House Oversight Committee hearing concerning the multi-year scandal.  Host Bret Baier introduced the segment by informing viewers that there was "new information about thousands more e-mails in the IRS targeting scandal destroyed during the investigation."

The Religion of Peace Spreads Its Good News.  Islamic terrorists carried out deadly attacks on three continents yesterday.  In all, over 60 people were killed following a call by ISIS for Muslims to go the extra mile in honor of the holy month of Ramadan.  You might miss this story if you look for it in the Washington Post, as it is vastly overshadowed by an above-the-fold, screaming headline celebrating the Supreme Court's gay rights decision.

The Silencing: Paper Will Limit Anti-Gay Marriage Op-Eds.  The editorial board of PennLive/The Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Pa. is taking a hardcore stance against those who disagree with the Supreme Court ruling to legalize gay marriage.  "As a result of Friday's ruling, PennLive/The Patriot-News will no longer accept, nor will it print, op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage," they declared.  After receiving strong pushback, the newspaper's editorial board, which is overseen by Editorial Page Editor John Micek, quickly revised its policy.  Freedom of speech will be allowed — but only for a "limited" period of time.

Spike It! When the Media Kill a Story for Political Reasons.  What happens when the news media catch the White House in a demonstrable lie?  That depends entirely on whether they like the administration.  If they loathe the administration, it's front-page news.  If they like it, they spike the story.

The Media Doesn't Want Americans To Know Anything About King v. Burwell.  According to a new poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation, 7 in 10 Americans have heard little or nothing about King v. Burwell, the U.S. Supreme Court case that will, any day now, decide the fate of Obamacare's health insurance subsidies for millions of Americans.  Yet 63 percent of those surveyed also say that if the court rules against the government, Congress should act to keep those subsidies in place.  Got that?  The vast majority of Americans know almost nothing about this case, but 63 percent have an opinion about what Congress should do in response to a ruling that carries certain policy implications.  How can this be?

Fox News Alone Covers Hillary's High-Level Private-Server Libya Emails.  2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, as seen in [a] March 10 Associated Press report, has claimed for several months that "No Classified Material (was) Sent via Her Personal Emails" from a home-based server she said "would remain private."  That claim, like so many other representations Mrs. Clinton has made, fell apart earlier this week, when, as Fox News reported, it was learned that Mrs. Clinton "used her personal email account to handle high level negotiations in 2011 for a no-fly zone to help topple Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi."  Only Fox considers this a story.

Bilderberg Group meets amid conspiracy theories, heavy security, news blackout.  Depending on your level of suspicion, the Bilderberg Group is either a secretive group of powerful elites bent on global domination or a secretive group of powerful elites with big ideas and bigger heads.  Cunning powerbrokers or vain blowhards, the members of the Bilderberg Group arrived at a resort in the Austrian Alps Thursday [6/11/2015] for the start of their annual three-day meeting amid heavy security, protesters, conspiracy theories and a news blackout.

Immigration — Hey, Look! A Cop Yelling at a Black Girl in a Bikini!  I'm impressed by the coolness and steadiness of our media in suppressing any news about immigration.  It's as if they've built a triple-layer fence with border guards around immigration topics.  And guess what?  Their fence is working!  How many thousands of news stories have there been on Ferguson, ISIS, Chris Christie's "Bridgegate" or men becoming women?  But the media will never tell you about Mexicans gang-raping a lesbian in Richmond, California, an Indian immigrant in San Francisco importing 12-year-old girls he bought from their parents for sex, or three children being beheaded by Mexicans in Baltimore.  Don't Americans have a right to know about the cultures flooding into our country?

Who were those "science advisors" behind the NY fracking ban?  Last week we talked about the bombshell EPA report which said that fracking didn't have any demonstrated, systemic effect on ground water quality.  (Well, it was a "bombshell" unless you work at the NY Times, which didn't find that it merited much of a mention.)

Networks Skip Report That Their Own CEOs Are the Most 'Overpaid'.  Our Tom Blumer pointed out that AP reported that CEOs in the media industry earn more because the celebrities in the media industry earn more, and noted from a conservative perspective that there may valid business reasons for pay hikes.  But let's turn it around and look at it from the Left for a minute and explore the angle of media hypocrisy.  Did anyone at the networks pick up the story if liberals felt CEO pay was excessive, the media itself was Exhibit A? Nope, not at ABC, CBS, NBC, or CNN.

New York Times ignored Jonathan Gruber bombshell.  The New York Times had first shot in 2014 at the video of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber mocking the "stupidity of the American voter," but took a pass.  Though the Times eventually followed up on reports of the MIT economist's now-infamous remarks on the passage of the Affordable Care Act, it did so only after they had generated a national scandal.  Times' reporter Robert Pear was the "first real journalist" that tipster Rich Weinstein contacted with the newly unearthed footage, he told the Washington Examiner.

AP, After Nationally Hyped Preview, Treats GOP Win in Jacksonville Mayor's Race as a Local Story.  The idea that the nation's largest cities are impenetrable Democratic Party strongholds took a serious hit Tuesday night [5/19/2015].  In Jacksonville, the nation's 13th-largest city, a Republican took back the mayor's office, unseating the incumbent Democrat who won four years ago.  Predictably, the Associated Press, perhaps sensing that Democrat Alvin Brown might hold on in his reelection attempt, treated the race as a national story the day before the election, identifying Brown as a 2011 beneficiary of an Obama campaign effort [...]

Atlanta: Why is the media missing the biggest education story of the year?  Maybe reporters don't care enough about the victims in the Atlanta story — African-American students from disadvantaged backgrounds. [...] Or maybe they don't know how to handle the fact that the guilty parties were also African-American.  The educators' goal was not to directly line their pockets but to boost students' test scores — and then line their pockets.  They got their payoff through bonuses tied to student performance.  In the era of high-stakes testing, which holds schools accountable for the performance of students, if students do well academically, then educators do well financially.  According to a state investigation, 178 educators in at least 44 schools tried to ensure that students did really well on tests — by cheating.

The Pentagon Admits It Is Preparing For a Mass Civil Breakdown in America.  This is an old story that has recently resurfaced — and it does make you think.  On the one hand, the Pentagon does need to be prepared for any contingency, including a breakdown of order in the country.  On the other hand, it makes you wonder if the Pentagon knows something we don't.

Pentagon Admits They Are Preparing For Mass Civil Breakdown.  A new US Department of Defense (DoD) research program admits that the Pentagon has long been concerned about widespread social break down.  Even more striking of an admission is the fact that they have been funding universities to create models of the dynamics, risks and tipping points that would all be part of large-scale civil unrest in the United States.

Americans Not In Labor Force Hits New Record High: 93,194,000.  For the second month in a row, the number of people not in the workforce hit another record high in April, according to jobs data released Friday [5/8/2015] by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  April saw the number of people dropping out of the labor force increase from March's record 93,175,000 to a new record:  93,194,000 people not in the workforce.

DHS records describe Mexican government helicopters entering US, firing on Border Patrol.  How is this not a huge story?  Well, we know why it's not a huge story.  This sort of thing throws a wrench into the current illegal immigration narrative.  Specifically that we as Americans should't be concerned with what is happening along our southern border.

Hillary Clinton Goes 24 Days Without Talking To Media.  The fact that Hillary Clinton — the likely Democratic presidential nominee — hasn't addressed the controversy over her private email server and the fundraising controversy surrounding the Clinton Foundation in an interview or with the public seems to be causing the former Secretary of State to take a hit in the polls.

ABC's WNT and NBC NN Blackout of Clinton Foundation Scandal Hits One Week.  With the coming and going of the network evening newscasts on Thursday [4/30/2015], the Clinton Foundation scandal blackout stretched into a full week since it was last covered on ABC's World News Tonight with David Muir and NBC Nightly News while the CBS Evening News covered twice in the same time span.

The Editor says...
I don't own a television, so this is the first time I've ever heard of David Muir.

Networks Ignore Discovery of 'Lost' Lois Lerner E-Mails.  Despite a combined eight hours of air time on Wednesday [4/29/2015], all three network morning shows ignored the revelation that 6400 "lost" e-mails from ex-IRS official Lois Lerner have been found.  On cable, Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer alerted viewers, reminding, "The IRS claimed the emails were lost when learner's computer crashed three years ago.  They will now be examined by the Senate Finance Committee."

Economic Growth Slows, Networks' Morning Shows Ignore.  Economic growth has stagnated so far this year, catching the broadcast news networks inexplicably off guard yet again.  The federal government's Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) announced April 29 that gross domestic product (GDP) expansion slowed to only 0.2 percent in the first quarter of 2015.  This meant the goods and services produced by the United States economy grew only minimally, lagging far behind growth in the previous two quarters.

Largest Bank In America Joins War On Cash.  Just a week ago, the infamous Willem Buiter, along with Ken Rogoff, voiced their support for a restriction (or ban altogether) on the use of cash (something that was already been implemented in Louisiana in 2011 for used goods).  Today, as Mises' Jo Salerno reports, the war has acquired a powerful new ally in Chase, the largest bank in the U.S., which has enacted a policy restricting the use of cash in selected markets; bans cash payments for credit cards, mortgages, and auto loans; and disallows the storage of "any cash or coins" in safe deposit boxes.

Reporters Ignore Climate Change Skeptics.  The views of researchers skeptical of the theory humans are causing potentially catastrophic climate change have become scarce in news stories covering the topic.  A recent study by George Mason University researchers published in the trade magazine Journalism found contrarian views on the subject are no longer welcome in many of the nation's newspapers.  The authors of "Covering Global Warming in Dubious Times: Environmental Reporters in the New Media Ecosystem," interviewed nearly a dozen journalists who regularly report on climate change, formerly known as global warming.

Obama and the Media Still Hiding Immigration Agenda.  Immigration reform is often presented by the media in terms of the human cost, and the alleged inhumanity in not allowing these persons to stay in the United States.  The liberal media therefore, delight in pointing to any evidence they can find suggesting hypocrisy on the right on this issue and ignore the blatant abuses by the Obama administration in pursuit of his amnesty agenda.  News coverage of the recent hearing before the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ignores the fact that the Obama administration misled a lower court judge, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, about the implementation of the Department of Homeland Security's, and therefore President Obama's offer of "temporary legal status to millions of illegal immigrants, along with an indefinite reprieve from deportation."

Study: How the Broadcast Networks Have Deleted Hillary's E-Mail Scandal.  Hillary Clinton's official presidential announcement was a golden opportunity for networks to demand the former Secretary of State respond to unanswered questions about her e-mail scandal.  Yet in the flurry of coverage since her official rollout (April 12 - April 20) the e-mail scandal garnered a total of just 7 minutes, 12 seconds on the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) evening and morning shows.  Even a new angle on the e-mail scandal — the New York Times reported April 14 that Clinton never responded to a congressional inquiry [in December of 2012] that "directly asked" if she had used a private e-mail account — failed to re-ignite the interest networks initially showed when the scandal first broke in March.

Press Ignores Gold Star Mom Demanding, and Getting, an Apology from Gen. Dempsey.  A decade ago, a Gold Star Mom who had lost her son in Iraq gained national attention when she staged a protest against the Iraq War near George W. Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas.  Leftist PR flaks took control of Cindy Sheehan's every move, keeping her in the headlines for months on end as a symbol of supposedly strong opposition to the war which toppled Saddam Hussein.  In August 2005, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote that "the moral authority of parents who bury children killed in Iraq is absolute."  Yet Dowd and the rest of her fellow travelers in the establishment press have almost completely ignored, by their definition, the "absolute moral authority" of Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee, whose son Marc "was the first Navy SEAL who sacrificed his life in Ramadi, Iraq (on) Aug 2, 2006."

Will there be a National Conversation after environmentalist shoots energy worker?  A disturbing story flagged by The Washington Free Beacon's Lachlan Markay out of West Virginia indicates that a man, enraged by the drilling taking place in his state, shot an employee of an energy exploitation company on Monday [4/13/2015]. [...] A reporter with The Charleston Gazette called a member of the West Virginia Sierra Club for comment and received unequivocal condemnation of this violent incident, but the episode has received little attention in the national press.  For a media culture that is quick to blame conservatives for every episode of violence with a potential political motive, the commentary community's silence on this incident is deafening.

How the FBI is whitewashing the Saudi connection to 9/11.  Just 15 days before the 9/11 attacks, a well-connected Saudi family suddenly abandoned their luxury home in Sarasota, Fla., leaving behind jewelry, clothes, opulent furniture, a driveway full of cars — including a brand new Chrysler PT Cruiser — and even a refrigerator full of food.  About the only thing not left behind was a forwarding address.  The occupants simply vanished without notifying their neighbors, realtor or even mail carrier.  The 3,300-square-foot home on Escondito Circle belonged to Esam Ghazzawi, a Saudi adviser to the nephew of then-King Fahd.  But at the time, it was occupied by his daughter and son-in-law, who beat a hasty retreat back to Saudi Arabia just two weeks before the attacks after nearly a six-year stay here.

Game Changer OR Paradigm Shift-Walter Scott Shooting.  [Scroll down]  You can clearly see and hear this was not a short fight prior to Officer Slager using his firearm to shoot Walter Scott.  But that fact alone is not the most important discovery in the past 24 hours.  What is potentially a game changer occurs when you review Officer Slager stating he had lost control/custody of the x26 Taser he deployed to restrain a non compliant Scott — and recognize the Taser actually appears to have been used against him.

DNC Chair OK with Aborting 7-lb Babies; Nets Silent.  The media would be all over a Republican politician if he or she refused to support abortion — even in cases of rape and incest.  But a Democrat politician supporting abortion in any situation?  Not so much.  Following the lead of an AP reporter earlier that day, New Hampshire journalist Paul Steinhauser asked Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) about his stance on abortion on April 8.  Sen. Paul responded, "Why don't we ask the DNC:  Is it OK to kill a seven-pound baby in the uterus?"  When DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) refused to cite any restrictions on abortion, the three broadcast networks — ABC, NBC and CBS refused to report on the incident.

The Walter Scott Shooting Backstory Begins To Surface.  When the Walter Scott Scheme Team looks back on what tripped them up in 2015 they'll be able to point to one decision, hiring Ryan Julison.  Without Julison appearing — the Walter Scott story would have slipped under the radar; it would perhaps have appeared natural, without screenplay.  But as soon as Julison is identified, and for those who know immediately what to look for, you see the guiding hand of the Producer/Director.

Russia's Invasion of White House Computers.  [Scroll down]  Only on October 28, days before the election, did the Obama administration admit that White House computers had been down for weeks.  The administration said that it learned of the foreign intrusion, apparently by Russia, from "an ally."  So we didn't detect it, and there was no indication of how long one or more hostile powers had access to White House computers before the intrusion was discovered. [...] Isn't it reasonable to infer that major news outlets kept Russia's cyberattack a secret until after the election because it reflected badly on the Obama administration's competence as well as its complacent view of the world?  Some "reset"!  I think that is an inescapable conclusion.  Even today, it is astonishing that the story has gotten so little attention in the Democratic Party press.

How the U.S. thinks Russians hacked the White House.  Russian hackers behind the damaging cyber intrusion of the State Department in recent months used that perch to penetrate sensitive parts of the White House computer system, according to U.S. officials briefed on the investigation.  While the White House has said the breach only affected an unclassified system, that description belies the seriousness of the intrusion.  The hackers had access to sensitive information such as real-time non-public details of the president's schedule.  While such information is not classified, it is still highly sensitive and prized by foreign intelligence agencies, U.S. officials say.

Record High 12,202,000 Black Americans Not In Labor Force.  Anyone doubt for a second a white Republican president would under constant attack by the Dems for their "racist" economic policies against black Americans?

Shocker! Obama's DOJ Won't Seek Contempt Charges for Lois Lerner, Networks Ignore.  On Wednesday [4/1/2015], the Department of Justice announced it would not be seeking contempt charges against Lois Lerner for refusing to testify to Congress on the IRS targeting scandal.  The Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks, so far, have refused to report on this big development in the Obama IRS scandal that they apparently just don't want to talk about any more.

What really happened to Harry Reid? Part 2.  When a guy shows up at a Las Vegas emergency room on New Year's Day with severe facial injuries and broken ribs, and gives as an explanation the functional equivalent of "I walked into a doorknob," it isn't hard to guess that he ran afoul of mobsters.  Yet the national press has studiously averted its eyes from Reid's condition, and has refused to investigate the cause of his injuries.  To my knowledge, every Washington reporter has at least pretended to believe Reid's story, and none, as far as I can tell, has inquired further. [...] The deliberate blindness of Democratic Party reporters hasn't stopped people from speculating about what really happened to Harry Reid, but so far, at least, it has prevented the story from exploding into a major scandal.

Fast and Furious Cover-up Rewarded in Appointment of New ATF Director.  On Friday, March 20, 2015, B. Todd Jones, the Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF,) announced his resignation. [...] The announced new Acting Director is the current Deputy Director, Thomas Brandon, a man with an apparently secret history at the ATF.  In news dispatches of March 20th, Mr. Brandon is described blandly by the AP, CNN and ABC as a 26-year veteran at the agency who was appointed Deputy Director in 2011.  This gives the impression of an earnest, knowledgeable, hard working civil servant, does it not?  Perhaps all of the professional reporters are too pressed for time these days to perform a basic Google search.  Or, perhaps not a single so-called journalist has the brain capacity to remember a shameful, deadly national disaster called Fast and Furious.

CBS Evening News Omits United Flight Passenger Was Screaming About Jihad.  All three of the major broadcast networks covered during their Tuesday night [3/17/2015] newscasts the story of unruly passenger abroad a United Airlines flight from the day before, but it was the CBS Evening News that left out the key detail that the man was screaming about Jihad and there being a bomb abroad the plane.  In what should have an easy story to cover and then move on, anchor Scott Pelley created another case of media bias in labeling by not providing any real details as to what the man was doing while competitors ABC's World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News mentioned it multiple times.

Only CBS Points Out Top Obama Aide Is Working to Defeat Netanyahu.  On Monday night [3/16/2015] and Tuesday morning, all three networks covered the down-to-the-wire election in Israel. But only CBS noticed that Barack Obama's 2012 national field director is hard at work trying to defeat Benjamin Netanyahu.  This Morning reporter Barry Petersen explained that the left-leaning Labor Party "hired Jeremy Bird who ran the Obama campaign ground game in 2008 and 2012."  ABC and NBC ignored this key point.  Instead, Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos danced around the issue.

Media Ignores UN Climate Chief Who Says Global Warming is 'My Religion'.  So, the liberal media attacks everyone who claims to be religious, right?  Yet, what have we heard about the UN climate chief who is running around claiming that global warming is his religion?

Boston High School Dean, Reverend and Anti-Gun Activist, Arrested For Dealing Drugs and Shooting Student Dealer In Head "Execution Style".  This story is beyond incredible, yet it obviously doesn't fit the MSM narrative — hence it doesn't make the news cycle. [...] Apparently Reverend Shaun Harrison, in addition to being a Dean at the school, was the primary drug dealer and the student he shot was one of his hires paid to sell marijuana.  The "Rev" Harrison was also a well known anti-gun/violence activist in the community.

A Test Of Nevada's Solar Tower Project Torched Over A Hundred Birds.  In what's turning into a public relations headache for the solar industry, news has emerged that a recent test of the 110-megawatt Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project in Nevada resulted in some 130 birds catching fire, when they flew into an area of highly concentrated solar energy.  As KCET's Rewire is reporting, the incident happened last month, but the news is only emerging now.

Hillary's foreign fundraising mess: Even the liberal press is fed up.  [Scroll down]  What's more, what is now the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation thinks it's all right once again to solicit foreign governments that of course would love to buy influence with a potential president.  A New York Times editorial urged Hillary "to reinstate the foundation's ban against foreign contributors" and "reassure the public that the foundation will not become a vehicle for insiders' favoritism, should she run for and win the White House."  When you're a Democrat and lose the Times editorial page, you're in trouble.  Now the broadcast networks have largely blown off the story, except for half a minute on CBS.

Here Is The Damaging Al Sharpton Footage The Media Is Ignoring.  New video footage released by conservative activists' James O'Keefe's organization Project Veritas shows the daughter of Eric Garner, the man who died after being put in a choke-hold by Staten Island police officers, saying that Rev. Al Sharpton is "about the money."  Erica Garner, who has become a passionate champion for social change following the death of her father, accused Sharpton and his National Action Network (NAN) of "attacking" her for not giving them credit; and trying to capitalize on her father's death.

Big Media Blacks Out the Clinton Foundation Foreign-Money Story.  [M]any liberal-media critics smell a rat every time the airwaves are filled with obsession over a frivolous story.  NewsBusters clocked six minutes on the story of llamas running loose in Arizona, but only 32 seconds of coverage on one of the major networks (CBS) for the incredible tale of Hillary Clinton's foundation raking in foreign and corporate cash both during and after her tenure as Secretary of State.

NBC Devotes Nearly Four Minutes to Dress Debate, Seconds to Clinton Corruption.  On Friday [2/27/2015], NBC finally noticed the corruption scandal swirling around Hillary Clinton.  However, the coverage on the Today show was relegated to a 49-second mention within a story slamming Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.  By contrast, the morning show devoted 3 minutes 56 seconds to a social media debate about the color of a dress.

Secretary Jeh Johnson Appeared On Four Networks, Not One Asked Him About His Involvement In Libya 2011.  Annoying does not seem to adequately identify the frustration projected toward the U.S. media anymore.  "Willfully Blind" seemingly seems entirely more appropriate.

Media Covers Up Biden's Latest Racist Gaffe.  Democrats sure got it good.  Louisiana Republican Governor Bobby Jindal dares to agree with CNN's own reporting about European no-go zones, and the left-wing network brands him an anti-Muslim racist.  On the other hand, when Vice President Joe Biden stereotypes Somali immigrants as nothing more than a bunch of cab drivers, the media pretends it didn't happen.  The slur is left completely out of their reporting.

Islamist Terror Enclave Discovered in Texas.  The enclave belongs to the network of Muslims of the Americas, a radical group linked to a Pakistani militant group called Jamaat ul-Fuqra.  Its members are devoted followers of Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, an extremist cleric in Pakistan.  The organization says it has a network of 22 "villages" around the U.S., with Islamberg as its main headquarters in New York.  Clarion Project obtained secret MOA footage showing female members receiving paramilitary training at Islamberg. [...] A second MOA tape released by Clarion shows its spokesman declaring the U.S. to be a Muslim-majority country.  A 2007 FBI record states that MOA members have been involved in at least 10 murders, one disappearance, three firebombings, one attempted firebombing, two explosive bombings and one attempted bombing.

A Muslim Terrorist Enclave Grows in Mahmoudberg, Texas.  [Scroll down past excerpt] That's only a small part of the larger article and it's also a reminder that No Go Zones already exist in America and that they can form even more easily in rural areas than in cities.  These are base communities meant to serve as an expansion point for future Emirates as Islamic settlements in the United States grow and Jihadist activity rises.  The violence begins with terrorism, moves on to guerrilla warfare and then to a conventional war when they have the population numbers.

The Costly Asylum Racket.  Did you hear about the El Cajon, California Iraqi man who was found guilty of murdering his wife after writing a phony note from supposed Islamophobes telling the family to leave the U.S.? Did you know that the Tsarnaev Boston Bombers came to our country with false claims of persecution and then cashed in to receive $100,000 in U.S. welfare handouts? Did you hear about the Oregon Somali Christmas tree bomber? Did you hear about the Somali youths who left Minneapolis to join Al-Shabaab and ISIS? [...] If you didn't hear those facts, put it down to the secrecy of the refugee racket, which does its best to operate under the radar.

Oregon's juicy governor/girlfriend scandal: Why the media yawned.  Imagine the following scenario:  The governor of New York is mired in a scandal.  Not just any scandal, but one that turns on humiliating revelations involving his girlfriend.  The governor is embarrassed as it turns out his fiancée has been married before and didn't bother to tell him.  Worse, it was a sham marriage to get a green card for an Ethiopian immigrant, which netted her $5,000.  Then it turns out that the governor's fiancée was lobbying him for the green energy interests she represents as a consultant, and may not have disclosed all her fees.

Gitmo's Worst Terrorists Skype as Part of "Humane Treatment".  In the latest of many fringe benefits extended to the world's most dangerous terrorists the Obama administration is allowing Guantanamo Bay prisoners — including a senior Al Qaeda operative — to speak with family via video chats similar to Skype.  The captives are "high-value" detainees locked up in a special top-security wing of the military compound at the U.S. Naval base in southeast Cuba.

Media struggling with images of Islamic State murder.  The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria's brutal murder this week of Jordanian pilot Lt. Moaz al-Kasasbeh presents a dilemma for U.S. media:  Should images of the execution be aired or should they be withheld from the public?  Right-leaning news organizations, including Fox News and Glenn Beck's TheBlaze, say the images should be shown to the public, arguing that it will better help the American people to understand the terrifying nature of the Islamic State, which controls portions of Iraq and Syria.

The Reality Beneath "Low Unemployment" Propaganda: Less than half of adult Americans are employed full-time.  Gallup regularly tracks the percentage of U.S. adults that are employed for 30 or more hours per week, and it is currently at 44.2 percent.  It has been hovering between 42 percent and 45 percent since the end of 2009.  This is extremely low.  As I discussed the other day, there are 8.69 million Americans that are considered to be "officially unemployed" at this point.  But there are another 92.90 million Americans that are considered to be "not in the labor force".  Millions upon millions of those Americans would work if they could.  Overall, there are 101 million U.S. adults that do not have a job right now.  But you won't hear that number being discussed by the mainstream media, because it would make Barack Obama look really bad.

The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment.  Right now, we're hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is "down" to 5.6%.  The cheerleading for this number is deafening.  The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.  None of them will tell you this:  If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you've stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn't count you as unemployed.  That's right.  While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%.  Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed.

Downtown Saint Paul Minnesota Besieged By Black Mob Violence — Media Hides Story.  Saint Paul Minnesota is a hotbed of racially driven black mob violence, but the media work diligently to keep it hidden.  Recently the frequency of the attacks has increased in severity and now even the local media are forced to discuss it.  However, the media avoid the racial motive inherent in all of the suspects being black and all of the victims are white.

More about black mobs and race riots.

What the Mainstream Media Doesn't Want You to Know About PEGIDA.  Wednesday night [1/21/2015] saw a flare of violence and an accompanying police operation on a scale without precedent in recent German history.  A group opposing militant Islam in Europe has called a demonstration, the city is deafened by political slogans played over loudspeakers, property is vandalised, and explosives are thrown at police in colossal running battles that involve thousands of people.  If you got your news from the mainstream media, what is increasingly known in Germany as the 'liar press' (Luegenpresse), the story might very well end there.

The Latest from West Virginia.  Currently, 40 states are in the process of initiating an Article V convention to propose three specific amendments.  One would impose fiscal restraint on the federal government through a balanced budget amendment, the second would limit the government's power and jurisdiction, and the third would impose term limits on Congress.  Should these amendments become ratified, they become law.  Congress can't change or amend (add pork to) them, the president can't veto them; the Supreme Court can't overturn them.

It's a safe bet that you haven't heard anything from your local "happy team" news show about any proposed amendments to the Constitution.  But there's always time for a story about the newest baby giraffe at the zoo, or any asteroid that comes within a million miles of us.  By all means, keep tuning in for your nightly dose of superficial pap if you'd prefer to remain blissfully ignorant.

Wireless device in two million cars wide open to hacking.  An electronic dongle used to connect to the onboard diagnostic systems of more than two million cars and trucks contains few defenses against hacking, an omission that makes them vulnerable to wireless attacks that take control of a vehicle, according to published reports.  US-based Progressive Insurance said it has used the SnapShot device in more than two million vehicles since 2008.  The dongle tracks users' driving to help determine if they qualify for lower rates.  According to security researcher Corey Thuen, it performs no validation or signing of firmware updates, has no secure boot mechanism, no cellular communications authentication, and uses no secure communications protocols.

The Editor says...
The story immediately above will never be on the TV news for two reasons:  (1) Progressive is a major advertiser on every TV channel, and (2) The story is too technical.  It can't be explained in one- and two-syllable words, and TV news programs are reluctant to get into technical topics because doing so might alienate the average viewer.  No such restriction apply to this page, of course, so here is more about the story:

Progressive Insurance Driving Tracker Lacks Basic Security, Allows Attacker "Full Control" of Vehicles.  Corey Thuen, a senior researcher with Digital Bond Labs, reverse engineered Progressive Insurance's SnapShot device — used in 2 million US vehicles — and tested it on his 2013 Toyota Tundra truck.  After picking apart the hardware and testing its wireless communications while plugged into the vehicle's ODP-II diagnostic port on the car's local network, Thuen found the Progressive dongle doesn't authenticate to the cellular network or encrypt its traffic.  The firmware isn't signed or validated, and there's no secure boot function.  Also, the device uses the notoriously unsecure FTP protocol.  The device runs on CANbus, the very same network where key vehicle functions — including braking, park assist steering, and ECU — are housed.  It sends messages over the CAN to request information from the vehicle's computer systems, such as revolutions per minute, to calculate the driver's ultimate insurance policy rate.

I doubt if anyone is going to pull up beside my car and hijack the electronics, slamming on the brakes or steering me into a tree, but (if I had a "Snapshot" gadget plugged in) a well-equipped hacker could alter the collected data and make me look like a terrible driver!

Terrorist training camps in the U.S.
Islamist Terror Group Operating 22 Training Facilities in the United States.  The Conservative Tribune reports "that the FBI is aware of 22 Islamic 'communes' inside the United States.

Home Depot Just Made a Decision That Will Likely Alienate At Least Half their Customers.  The radical Muslim group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) has once again managed to move their agenda forward getting Home Depot to agree to force employees of a Michigan store to go through "cultural awareness training" about their religion and culture.  In other words, they're being forced to learn how to treat Muslims differently from the rest of their American customers.

Networks Ignore John Kerry's Embarrassing James Taylor Stunt in Paris.  On Friday [1/16/2015], while all three network morning shows covered Secretary of State John Kerry arriving in Paris to offer U.S. condolences following the recent terrorist attacks, none of the broadcasts mentioned one of the most embarrassing moments in American diplomatic history that occurred during the visit — Kerry bringing musician James Taylor to a press conference to sing "You've Got A Friend" to the French people.

Press Ignores Venezuelan Bishops' Strong Denunciation of 'Marxist Socialism'.  The latest report out of Venezuela by the Associated Press's Hannah Dreier has a time stamp of 1:15 p.m. today [1/13/2015].  This means that the wire service has had plenty of time to report, and has chosen not to report, a powerful pastoral letter issued yesterday by that country's Catholic bishops denouncing that country's descent into a system they described as "socialist Marxist or communist."  That decision by AP and apparently other international wire services demonstrates once again that one cannot keep up with the news without at least occasionally going to the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal, the UK tabloids, and Investors Business Daily.

Ultra-Orthodox Israel newspaper photoshops female leaders out of front page picture from Paris rally for Charlie Hebdo.  An ultra-Orthodox Jewish newspaper in Israel photoshopped all females from a front page photo of 40 world leaders gathered at a rally supporting victims of the shooting at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.  The phony photo from the Monday edition of HaMevaser (The Announcer) completely erased German Chancellor Angela Merkel and cropped out Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorington-Schmidt and EU Foreign Affairs and Security Chief Federica Mogherini.

The Editor says...
As long as they had Photoshop warmed up, they might as well have inserted Obama, Fidel Castro and Martin Luther King.

Blockbuster Story. Spiked!  I had lunch yesterday [1/5/2015] with three gentlemen who are very well read, who follow the news attentively, and who would shudder to think they are victims of ideological censorship. Yet not one of them — and the trio includes a very famous former reporter (a first-class reporter at that) for one of the country's top newspapers — had heard a word about Egyptian President Sisi's remarkable New Year's Day speech, in which he called upon Muslim leaders and scholars to carry out a "religious revolution."  All three watch TV news and read the leading dailies, so they were surprised that they hadn't heard about it.  They agreed that the story warranted banner headlines.  World-wide.

No, North Korea Didn't Hack Sony.  The FBI and the President may claim that the Hermit Kingdom is to blame for the most high-profile network breach in forever.  But almost all signs point in another direction.

A Lot of Smart People Think North Korea Didn't Hack Sony.  The evidence linking agents of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to the recent digital implosion of Sony remains vague.  And even though the feds are squarely blaming North Korea, many security experts aren't buying it.

North Korea was NOT behind the Sony hack according to multiple security experts.  The New York Times reveals that Computational linguists at Taia Global actually broke down the imperfect English being used in the messages sent by the hacker, which seem to suggest a Russian citizen was penning the group's missives.

Communists Are Behind The Anti-Police Protests In New York.  Beginning way back in 2002, we wrote about International A.N.S.W.E.R., a Communist organization that was founded in September 2001 and that organized substantial antiwar demonstrations during the Bush administration.  A.N.S.W.E.R. embodied within itself the seeming contradiction between the far left and Islamic extremism:  it enthusiastically supported both Kim il Jung and Saddam Hussein, and is directed in part by the Muslim Student Association.

The Homelessness Problem Is Still With Us — and Growing.  The [Los Angeles] Times described The Jungle as a "68-acre shantytown," i.e., 3 million square feet. [...] Even though the camp has now been dismantled, one quite inconvenient fact, at least for the left, remains.  "The Jungle" didn't spring up until roughly the beginning of 2013.  In other words, the "makeshift community" and its "somewhat unprecedented growth" all occurred while Democrat Chuck Reed was the city's mayor, Democrat Jerry Brown was California's governor, and Democrat Obama was the nation's president.  If "the Jungle" had appeared while Republicans were in charge of any of these three governmental bodies, the nation's press would have treated it as a national scandal since at least the middle of last year.

Networks Barely Mention Brutality of Castro Regime or Cuba Being Communist.  Following the trend set when news broke early Wednesday [12/17/2014], the major broadcast networks continued their praising of the move by President Obama to seek normalized relations with Cuba on their Wednesday night newscasts.  Between the "big three" of ABC, CBS, and NBC, they made only a few, brief mentions over the course of their 30-minute programs that Cuba was both a communist country and brutal in the treatment of its own people (especially dissenters).

NBC Nightly News Breaks Silence on Jonathan Gruber 32 Days After First Video Surfaced.  After a month in which NBC Nightly News gave more prominence to ugly Christmas sweaters, grape salad, Al Roker's 34-hour weather report, and a live broadcast of Peter Pan starring Brian Williams' daughter, Allison, the broadcast finally discovered Jonathan Gruber.  On Tuesday evening [12/9/2014], NBC's evening newscast acknowledged the name Jonathan Gruber for the first time and his insulting comments regarding ObamaCare a full 32 days after the group American Commitment unearthed the first Gruber video on November 7.

Media Blackout: Black Male Ruthlessly Executes 12-Year-Old Boy Keith Passmore.  The same lamestream media that continually makes racial mountains out of thug molehills remains steadfastly committed to dismissing the genuine epidemic of black criminality.  This might be why they are choosing to ignore the way in which a black male ruthlessly executed a 12-year-old white Georgia boy.

MSM blackout on Hillary's 'empathize' with our enemies remark.  You can tell how damaging the remarks made by Hillary Clinton at Georgetown University Wednesday are by the total blackout they have received from the mainstream media.  Here is Google's listing of the keywords "Hillary+empathize" revealing that only conservative media have found her doctrine newsworthy.

SC Jury Indicts White Officer for Killing Black Man — Media Ignores.  In a case with several parallels to both the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases, a South Carolina grand jury indicted a white police officer with murder Wednesday [12/3/2014] for the shooting of an unarmed black man.  Despite the significant parallels and timing, however, the national media has largely ignored the story.

White 12 year old boy brutally murdered, here's why the MSM won't report on it.  Many Michael Brown supporters — including those in the mainstream media — claim their cause is about starting an open dialogue about racism in America.  Unfortunately, that doesn't really seem to be true.  If it were, then racism in all of its forms would be condemned, and the media would be drawing attention to all of these awful acts going down across the country, such as the tragic execution of a 12-year-old white boy from Georgia who was ruthlessly gunned down by a black man.

Are the media ignoring another St Louis killing?  The murder [of Zemir Begic] has stunned the city's Bosnian community, one of the largest in the US.  On Sunday [11/30/2014] more than 150 residents took to the street to protest what they see as increasing incidents of violence in their neighbourhood.  Given that the attack occurred less than 14 miles from the town of Ferguson, which has been under a bright media spotlight since the August shooting of a black teen by a white police officer, local residents have been quick to draw comparisons.

Barack Obama: A Companion of Fools.  It seems that Barack Obama has a propensity to surround himself with some questionable friends. [...] Take for example one foolish companion the president walks with:  the prominent gay rights activist Terrence P. Bean, 66, who has been indicted for allegedly sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.  At a 2009 Human Rights Campaign dinner, Mr. Obama called the alleged child molester a "great friend and supporter."  As a matter of fact, Obama's "great friend" Terrence has frequented the White House at least six times in the past couple of years.  An ardent and influential supporter of many prominent Democrats, in addition to visiting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Bean has also been a guest of the president on Air Force One flying around at $181K an hour.

End the Media Blackout on Gay Rapists.  Liberal politics, not people, matter to our evil media.  That's precisely why they rush to their cameras, microphones and keyboards when news breaks about a pedophile Catholic priest having his way with altar boys.  Not because they care about the altar boys, but because they want to discredit the Catholic Church.  If you doubt that fact, ask yourself why you haven't heard much from the Mainstream Media about the recent arrest of 66 year-old Terrence Bean, charged with raping a 15-year old boy.  The answer is because Terrence isn't a Catholic priest.  Instead, he's the co-founder and on the board of directors of the homosexual organization ironically called the "Human Rights Campaign."

John Kerry Advised Russian Foreign Minister 'Just Ignore Obama'.  Though it went entirely unnoticed in the Western press, all major Russian news outlets — RIA Novosti, Sputnik, RT, and others — were only too happy to report on what US Secretary of State John Kerry said last week to the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in private: "Just ignore Obama's statements."

The Ferguson case with the colors reversed gets no media coverage:
Ferguson decision could spark renewed interest in Utah case of Dillon Taylor.  A grand jury's decision not to indict a white police officer who killed an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, announced this week, could spark renewed interest in a case in Utah involving a young, unarmed man killed by a police officer outside a 7-Eleven.  The case of 20-year-old Dillon Taylor had lingered in the public mind for months but did not rise to the level of the attention devoted to the case in Ferguson, which saw a confluence of racial tension, national media interest and public statements on the matter from President Obama and Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.

Here's another one:
White teen killed by black cop in Alabama mirrors Ferguson.  A two-year-old case involving the shooting death of an unarmed 18-year-old white man by a black police officer is gaining attention on social media in the wake of this week's protests and rioting in Ferguson, Missouri.  Gilbert Collar, a white, unarmed 18-year-old under the influence of drugs was shot and killed Oct. 6, 2012, by Officer Trevis Austin, who is black, in Mobile, Alabama.  Despite public pressure for an indictment, a Mobile County grand jury refused to bring charges against Officer Austin, concluding that the officer acted in self-defense.

Network Silence: Obama Ally, Gay Activist Arrested for Child Sex Abuse.  Here's today's installment of "Imagine if this had been a conservative..."  As Newsbusters reported last week, the founder of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), which markets itself as the nation's largest LGBT rights organization, was arrested Nov. 18 for allegedly sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.  Terrence Bean, 66, is a Democratic money man, prominent liberal activist and Obama ally.  Bean's 25-year-old former boyfriend was also charged in the crimes. [...] Since the story broke Wednesday [11/19/2014], local media and conservative media have covered it.  The Washington Post ran a brief AP story on the arrest, but the networks have yet to report on it.

CNN Covers Sex Abuse Case Against Obama 'Friend,' As Big Three Censor Story.  CNN stood out on Sunday and Monday for actually covering the sex abuse charges against Terry Bean, a "major fundraiser for President Obama," as correspondent Erin McPike labeled him.  The cable network devoted three full segments and two news briefs to the criminal charges against Bean, who is also the co-founder of the left-wing homosexual activist group Human Rights Campaign.  As of Monday morning [11/24/2014], the Big Three networks have yet to cover the story on their morning and evening newscasts.

Obama's condescending stereotype of Mexicans.  It is unbelievable that the president of the United States would say something this elitist regarding the nation's largest minority group — and perhaps just as worse that it's gone virtually unreported. [...] Not all Mexicans do the type of work that Obama described, especially the ones who have been in the country for several generations and have gone to college.  This is just more of the same, sadly, to be expected from this arrogant president who jaunts around the world on luxury vacations, and whose favorite past time is golf, not charity and actually helping those less fortunate.

Fools of the Week: Brian Williams, NBC Nightly News.  A full two weeks have passed since the accidental whistleblower MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber outed the Obama administration's underhanded way of getting ObamaCare past the American people.  The lying and cheating that it took to pass was deplorable.  Well, you know about the Gruber tapes (all seven and counting) ... because we, here at Fox News, told you about them. [...] But if you're one of the remaining few viewers to watch mainstream media, you probably never heard of Jon Gruber or his comment that are lighting up the news world.  Because Brian Williams and his NBC Nightly News has NEVER once mentioned Gruber[.]

Obama Greeted In Vegas With Chants of 'Worst President Ever'.  [President] Obama arrived in Las Vegas on Friday to sell amnesty to the American people, but was met by outside protesters who were not so thrilled with the country's current leader.  According to Lesley Clark, a White House correspondent for McClatchy Newspapers Washington bureau, the president arrived to a crowd of people chanting, "Worst president ever, Obama!"

He found the Jonathan Gruber videos — and no media outlet would call him back.  The man who changed the ObamaCare debate was at a gas station when I reached him, and he wasn't dying to talk.  "I really want to stay out of the limelight," said Rich Weinstein, a Philadelphia investment adviser.  "This is not about me."  But it is about him in the sense that if not for one slightly obsessed citizen, we wouldn't have the videos of Jonathan Gruber saying the health care law was deceptively designed and its passage depended on the stupidity of the American public.  And it is about his frustrating struggle to get that information out to the media.

Obama 'secretly' expands US combat operation in Afghanistan.  President Barack Obama has signed a secret order allowing the Pentagon to target Taliban fighters in Afghanistan, broadening previous plans that had limited the military to counterterrorism missions against al-Qaida, it was revealed Friday [11/21/2014].  The president's decision, made during a White House meeting with national security advisers, also gives the military the green light to conduct air support for Afghan operations when needed.

NBC has nothing to say about Al Sharpton's $5 million back-tax problems.  How do the executives at NBC feel about willfully paying and providing a TV platform to a man who reportedly owes the government more than $4.5 million in back taxes?  They're not saying.  When the Washington Examiner asked an NBC spokeswoman for comment on a recent report that Rev. Al Sharpton owes $4.5 million in state and federal tax liens against him, the response was "no comment."  The report, published Tuesday [11/18/2014] by the New York Times, stopped just short of calling Sharpton a tax cheat.

Networks Refuse to Cover Obama's Amnesty Announcement and Resulting Constitutional Chaos.  Thursday evening will mark a momentous announcement from President Obama concerning his hugely controversial executive order to "shield" and otherwise legalize millions of 'undocumented' illegal immigrants living in the United States.  But is this tide turning presidential address scheduled to be carried live on TV for all the country to witness?  No.  It seems that the big four networks — ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox — have all opted out of broadcasting the 15 minute speech, instead airing their November sweeps shows as scheduled in hopes of maximizing viewer ratings.

The Editor says...
In my opinion, it is much more likely that the three networks intended to do Mr. Obama a favor by keeping his tyranny quiet.  Many (but not all) Fox stations carried the President's announcement and then delayed their prime-time entertainment programs by 17 minutes.

Brooklyn Woman On Ebola Monitoring List Drops Dead Bleeding From "Face, Mouth, Nose".  Just a week after Dr. Craig Spencer was declared 'Ebola-free', The Daily Mail reports a woman, who had arrived from Guinea 18 days ago (and was on the NYC Ebola monitoring list), dropped dead in a Brooklyn hair salon this afternoon [11/18/2014].  FDNY sent their Special Operations and Hazmat units but she was declared dead at the scene.  Witnesses said she was bleeding from the "face, nose, mouth, everything."

The Editor says...
Hmmm... I feel like I'm about to die, and blood is pouring out of every hole, but I simply must get my hair done!

ABC and NBC Ignore Gruber's Numerous W.H. Visits, CBS Barely Covers.  On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Jonathan Gruber, one of the architects of ObamaCare, made more than a dozen visits to visit the White House since "Democrats began drafting the law in 2009."  Despite the latest developments in the Gruber controversy, which contradicts President Obama's line that Gruber was "some advisor who never worked on our staff," CBS This Morning was the only network morning show to mention the report, giving it a mere 24 seconds during its Tuesday morning [11/18/2014] broadcast.  ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's Today ignored the Journal's report altogether.

NBC's Chuck Todd: I Understand Why Network News Isn't Covering Gruber.  Has the network news been neglecting the recent comments by MIT economist Jonathan Gruber? NBC, CBS and ABC haven't covered the story a dozen times, leading to questions of media bias, but "Meet The Press" host Chuck Todd offers an understanding of why this is the case. #vc

FBN's Melissa Francis: 'I Was Silenced' When at CNBC for Criticizing ObamaCare.  During her Fox Business Network (FBN) show on Friday afternoon [11/14/2014], Melissa Francis told viewers that she "was silenced" by executives at CNBC when worked there after she criticized ObamaCare on-air and told viewers that the "math of ObamaCare simply didn't work."  Speaking in regards to what ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber said about relying on the "stupidity" of voter and the need for lying to get the law passed, Francis opined that while:  "It is shocking, but it actually doesn't surprise me because when I was at CNBC, I pointed out to my viewers that the math of ObamaCare simply didn't work.  Not the politics by the way, just the basic math and when I did that, I was silenced."

Fox Anchor says CNBC "silenced" her coverage of Obamacare.  An anchor for Fox Business Network who used to work for CNBC told viewers that her superiors at the network "silenced" her reporting on Obamacare, telling her she was "disrespecting the office of the president" by pointing out that Obamacare's math didn't add up. [...] This isn't surprising, of course, but it raises an interesting question.  How many other reporters over the years had a little chat with their superiors about negative coverage of the Obama administration?  Most journalists would be embarassed to come forward and admit they tanked their stories because of their bosses' support of President Obama.

12 Deaths now linked to Enterovirus-D68.  As Ebola continues to rage in Africa, one key person seems to be missing in action:  Ron Klain, Ebola Czar. [...] However, at least Ebola did attract some mainstream media coverage.  That differs from Enterovirus-D68, which has swept through the country and has sent hundreds of American children into emergency rooms with respiratory distress.  There has been very limited, local coverage.  One of the few who took up the story is Sharryl Attkisson, who now reports that 12 deaths have now been linked to this pathogen.

ABC, NBC Finally Acknowledge Existence of Gruber Videos.  It took nine days, but ABC and NBC finally covered the controversial videos of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber making disparaging remarks about the American voters.  Since the first video surfaced, CBS had been the only "big three" (ABC, CBS, and NBC) network to cover the Gruber video, but on Sunday, November 16 ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos and NBC's Meet the Press briefly mentioned the videos.  However, as of this writing, ABC and NBC's morning and evening newscasts have yet to mention the Gruber controversy once.

Besieged by stupid Americans, Media circles the wagons around Gruber.  How can you be certain the discovery of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber's repeated praise for the deception which resulted in the passage of the Affordable Care Act, and his acknowledgement of the "stupidity" of the American people to whom he and his Democratic allies successfully lied, is a major development?  The media's response to this revelation.  The videos, none of which were uncovered by any major news organization but by a previously anonymous investment advisor who found them hiding in plain sight on YouTube, feature Gruber denigrating the public his law purports to help.  Yet, this has hardly merited a mention on the major networks.  No nightly newscast has played the footage, and CBS News This Morning was the first network newscast to feature Gruber's comments at all — and only just today [11/13/2014].

CBS Finally Covers Gruber Revealing ObamaCare Deception.  After a video of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber declaring that the health care law only passed due to the "stupidity of the American voter" went viral over the weekend, the Big Three broadcasts networks were initially silent.  However, on Thursday [11/13/2014], CBS This Morning finally noticed the scandal as co-host Charlie Rose informed viewers:  "A new controversy stirring this morning over the Affordable Care Act.  An architect of President Obama's health care law says it was written to take advantage of what he calls 'voter stupidity.'"

Media blackout shields ObamaCare architect who bet on public stupidity.  [T]he press usually loves when hidden video surfaces, as it did this week with MIT professor Jonathan Gruber, and we get unvarnished comments showing what someone really and truly believes.  And yet there hasn't been a mention on the network evening newscasts.  CNN's Jake Tapper, to his credit, played the clip twice, asked two senators about it and wrote an online column on the subject, but that was about it for the network.  Nothing in the Washington Post but for a couple of online items.

MRC's Tim Graham: Gruber's 'Stupid' Gaffe Skipped by Big Three Networks, And by Newspapers, Wires.  On Wednesday, NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham appeared on Fox Business Network's Varney & Company to discuss how the media have virtually ignored video of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber mocking the 'stupid voters' for helping the Obama administration's efforts to pass ObamaCare.

Kurtz: 'Inexcusable,' 'Virtual Blackout' on Gruber Comments Shows Bias.  Howard Kurtz, host of the Fox News Channel's "Mediabuzz" slammed the media for failing to report the controversial comments of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, arguing that the "inexcusable," "virtual blackout" was an example of liberal media bias on Wednesday's [11/12/2014] "O'Reilly Factor" on the Fox News Channel.

For 2016, Hillary Had the Worst Night.  We all know the Republican midterm landslide was largely a repudiation of President Obama's policies and his handling of the job of chief executive.  And of course, we don't know who will succeed him in 2016.  But buried deep inside Tuesday's exit polls is a series of numbers on presidential contenders that will blow your mind.  It's completely different from most anything you've seen in the newspapers, the Internet or on TV.

Different TV Station Picks Up The Hagan Conflict of Interest Story Charlotte Observer Killed.  The Charlotte Observer first posted this story of a possible conflict of interest regarding Kay Hagan's husband and funds from the 2009 stimulus bill, then took it down without giving a reason.  On Monday night [11/3/2014] the local Fox affiliate covered the story: [...]

CBS Anchors, Brass Stonewalling Sharyl Attkisson's 'Stonewalled' Book.  Public Relations 101 tells us the first thing to do in a crisis is get out in front and address the issue at hand.  Ignoring Attkisson is the worst possible way for CBS to handle this situation.  It only adds fuel to the flames.  But CBS is obviously counting on the rest of the "mainstream" media to stay quiet on this story.  One would think a national news network such as CBS is respected enough to know better.

Is the Washington Press Corps covering up another Obama administration fiasco?  Last week, we got information from a source in the Executive Office of the President that the EOP's computer system had been down for, at that time, a week.  Federal IT personnel evidently were having trouble identifying and fixing the problem that had brought the computer system down (although email and internet access had been restored), and EOP employees were instructed to say nothing about it.

White House computer network hacked; temporary loss of some devices.  The White House's computer network has been hacked, with some temporary outages experienced in the executive office of the president, a White House official said Tuesday [10/28/2014].  The anonymous official told Reuters that there has been suspicious cyberactivity on an unclassified White House network, but would not say who was responsible for the activity.

CBS goes to ground over claims it buried anti-Obama stories.  CBS honchos stuck their heads in the sand Monday rather than address a former veteran reporter's memoir that revealed how the network routinely canned stories it perceived as anti-Obama.  Everyone from network CEO Les Moonves to "Evening News" anchor Scott Pelley to former "Evening News" Executive Producer Patricia Shevlin ignored repeated phone calls and e-mails from The [New York] Post seeking comment on the bombshell claim by ex-CBS investigative ace Sharyl Attkisson.

'Mainstream media outlets cover up for President Obama and kill unfavorable stories'.  An ex-CBS reporter is releasing a book that blames mainstream media outlets for covering for President Obama.  Sharyl Attkisson left CBS in the spring and opened up about her former employer and colleagues in 'Stonewalled' and claims that the media is liberal and covers up for the current administration.

Press Ignoring Nikki Haley's Opponent Wanting to 'Escort Whore Out the Door'.  Did you hear about Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott in Texas saying of opponent Wendy Davis, "We need to keep the whore away from the door"?  Of course you didn't.  We know that if Abbott had said anything like that, it would become national news story more important than even Ebola within minutes.  So why is it only news at about a dozen web-based center-right outlets that Democrat Vincent Sheheen, who is running against incumbent Republican Nikki Haley in the South Carolina Governor's race, told supporters on Thursday [10/23/2014] that "we're gonna escort whore out the door"?

Police: Three men attacking NYC woman caught on video.  Surveillance video shows that on Oct. 2 around 2 a.m., Gwendolyn Reyes walked past three men in Brooklyn.  After a vicious beating, the three suspects left her lying helpless on the ground. [...] They had gotten away with her purse and iPhone and Reyes was treated for a broken nose at a local hospital.  Police told CBS New York that the attacks appeared random and the suspects targeted her because she was walking alone.

The Editor says...
CBS News successfully avoids using the word "black" in this article about three black men beating up a randomly-selected white woman.

What election? Network news gives up on covering midterms.  It is probably safe to assume that you have been following the midterm elections closely.  You decided to click on this link, which would indicate that you have at least a passing interest in the coming national vote in which Americans will determine which party controls the upper chamber of Congress for the remainder of the Obama presidency.  If, however, you have been closely following the coverage of the coming midterms, you might have noticed that network news outlets do not appear to share your enthusiasm.  You're not imagining things.

TV News Blacks Out This Year's Bad Election News for Democrats.  In less than two weeks, voters head to the polls in midterm elections that seem certain to yield strong Republican gains, if not outright control of the U.S. Senate.  Such a political sea change is big news, but a new Media Research Center study finds that, in contrast to their enthusiastic coverage of the 2006 midterms when Democrats made big gains, the Big Three broadcast evening newscasts are all but ignoring this year's political contests.

What election? Big 3 networks ignore anti-Obama election.  The nation's Big Three TV networks that breathlessly reported the 2006 anti-Bush election which gave Democrats control of Capitol Hill have practically ignored this year's anti-Obama midterms that are expected to return full control of the Hill to the GOP.

Obama: Hey, all these red-state Democrats running away from me are strong supporters who vote with me!  As I've mentioned before, there's maybe nothing that cheers me more about Republican prospects that Democrats acting so very, very desperate.  You'll hear not a thing about a tone of "unprecedented negativity" in this year's ads because the worst examples are coming from endangered Democrats.  But just because the press doesn't report the pattern doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

NBC Newscasts Avoid NBC's Latest Bad-News Poll for Dems.  Jeffrey Meyer noted earlier that Meet the Press host Chuck Todd announced on Sunday morning that the latest NBC News-Wall Street Journal-Annenberg weekly tracking survey found "the biggest lead we've reported yet for generically for the Republicans," 49 to 44 percent among likely voters (and 45-43 among registered voters).  "Here's what I can tell you.  All Democrats agree, it was a bad week for them," Todd said.  But Sunday's NBC Nightly News and Monday's Today couldn't locate that poll, much like they've avoided other NBC News polls that look bad for Democrats.

ABC, NBC Omit Any Mention of Midterm Elections on Day Two Weeks from Election Day.  On Tuesday [10/21/2014], ABC and NBC made no mention of the upcoming midterm elections, which were two weeks away from Tuesday and include numerous Senate races that will decide whether Republicans or Democrats control the U.S. Senate.

Stunning federal corruption case moving forward with almost no media attention.  Corrupt federal prosecutors presenting false evidence in order to shake down a blameless corporation and bring in tens of millions of dollars seems like a pretty dramatic story.  Especially when former prosecutors support the charge and a chief judge acts on the allegations and takes dramatic action.  Yet the media silence is deafening.  Eric Holder's Justice Department is implicated in a dramatic and shocking case of alleged corruption that is so bad that the Chief Judge of the Eastern District of California has taken what can rightly be called the "nuclear option" and recused all the judges in the district from the case because they may have been defrauded by the DoJ prosecutors.

Bozell: Network Censorship of Houston Mayor's Subpoenas Part of Left's 'Relentless Assault on Free Speech'.  According to a new analysis by MRC Culture, over the past two days the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have completely censored liberal Houston Mayor Annise Parker's attempt to subpoena sermons of five pastors critical of the mayor, homosexuality, gender identity, or the city's new "equal rights" ordinance.  MRC President Brent Bozell released a statement in response to the networks' refusal to cover Parker's brazen attack on religious freedom and free speech:  "When the government mandates what a pastor can or cannot say, and criminalizes preaching the Bible, we're no different than Red China. [...]"

Network Priorities: 57X More Coverage of NFL Scandals Than Obama Scandals.  In the crucial weeks leading up to the midterm elections, the broadcast networks were obsessed with scandals, but not any of the Obama administration controversies that might influence how voters behave on Election Day.  No, despite revelations in the Benghazi, IRS, Veterans Administration and Secret Service prostitution scandals it was the NFL domestic abuse scandals that captured the attention of the Big Three (ABC, NBC, CBS) networks.

ABC Gives 17 Seconds To [its] Own Poll Showing 'Democrats Sweating' Before Midterms.  The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll is out and it has some sobering news for Democrats with less than three weeks to go until the midterm election.  The poll found that President Obama's approval rating has dropped to a new low of just 40 percent and the Democratic Party's popularity is at its weakest point in the last 30 years.  Despite ABC News declaring that their own poll "has Democrats sweating", ABC's Good Morning America> gave the story a mere 17 seconds on its Wednesday morning [10/15/2014] broadcast and buried it among a flurry of news briefs.

'Face the Nation' Leaves Out Netanyahu's Criticism of Obama.  Anyone watching Sunday's [10/5/2014] broadcast of Face the Nation on CBS did not hear critical comments about President Obama from Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  Those were edited out and sequestered to CBS's website, leaving only the positive comments aired.

Surgeon General Still Silent On Ebola.  On Wednesday [10/1/2014], Breitbart News reported that the U.S. Surgeon General's office had not said anything about the ongoing Ebola crisis, as public confusion, fear and frustration continue to mount.  In fact, the lead story on the Surgeon General's website on the first day of October was a message that September was "Fruits & Veggies — More Matters Month!"  Since then, nothing has changed:  Acting Surgeon General Boris D. Lushniak is silent.

Fifth Child Dies To Support President Obama's Illegal Immigration Goals:
Illegal South American Immigrants Introduce Deadly Virus To U.S. Children.  Though the U.S. government is keeping secret the locations of the illegal immigrant children, there are significant numbers of them in both cities in which the current outbreak was first identified, Kansas City, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois, according to local advocates and press reports.

Sharyl Attkisson: CBS News Nixed Story that Predicted Obama's Comments on ISIS.  Former CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson told Fox's MediaBuzz Sunday morning [10/5/2014] that her former employer nixed a story of hers two years ago that anticipated much of what President Barack Obama is currently saying about ISIS.  Attkisson very publicly split with CBS News in the spring following a string of stories on Fast and Furious and Benghazi; on the way out she accused CBS of being too compliant with the Obama administration.

NBC Silent on Oklahoma Beheader's Islamic Radicalism.  In NBC's sole report on the incident on the Friday "Nightly News," host Brian Williams didn't mention Islam.  Segueing from a report on ISIS that, ironically, mentioned beheadings, Williams said "The FBI is investigating an absolutely awful attack in our country."  Williams went on:  ["]Police say a man who was fired yesterday from a food processing plant went on a rampage there beheading a co-worker then repeatedly stabbing another before a company executive who happens to be reserve deputy in the area shot and subdued him.  The suspect is expected to survive his wounds and face multiple charges.["]  So as far as NBC viewers know, Nolan could be a Methodist, a devotee of Wicca or an atheist.

The media embargo on "the B word".  [Scroll down]  If America's reporters are so concerned about race relations in the country that such descriptions are included immediately when discussing a case where a white person is charged with injury to an African American, how is such discussion less valid when the roles are reversed? [...] As much as some of these news outlets may hate to admit it, black people do, on occasion, commit acts of violence.  And sometimes the victims of that violence are white.  But somehow that's not a story.

25 Rules of Disinformation.  These rules are generally used more directly by those at the leadership, key players, or planning level of the criminal conspiracy or conspiracy to cover up.  [#1] Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.  Regardless of what you know, don't discuss it — especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc.  If it's not reported, it didn't happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.

Eric Holder's Fast and Furious Fiasco Was Media Scandal, Too.  Thanks to his stonewalling of the House of Representatives investigation into the Fast and Furious scandal, in 2012 Eric Holder became the first Attorney General held in contempt by Congress.  Maybe his resignation on Thursday will revive the story for the three broadcast network evening newscasts, but don't count on it.  With Sharyl Attkisson no longer working at CBS News, there is no broadcast journalist who has shown any interest in pursuing this disgraceful story.

The Alleged Leftwing Firebomber the Media Doesn't Want You to Know About.  Twenty-eight year-old Eric King was charged with attempting to firebomb U.S. Congressman's Emanuel Cleaver's Kansas City office on September 11.  According to local media[,] law enforcement found a letter in his apartment that railed against capitalism and war.  In other words, the alleged firebomber is a leftist, which is why this incident is receiving absolutely no national media coverage.

David Limbaugh's book banished from NYT best seller list.  The New York Times Book Review, which has a history of belatedly recognizing conservative bestsellers, has banished conservative legal author David Limbaugh's latest, Jesus on Trial, from its upcoming best seller list despite having sales better than 17 other books on the list.

The Alleged Leftwing Firebomber the Media Doesn't Want You to Know About.  Twenty-eight year-old Eric King was charged with attempting to firebomb U.S. Congressman's Emanuel Cleaver's Kansas City office on September 11.  According to local media, law enforcement found a letter in his apartment that railed against capitalism and war.  In other words, the alleged firebomber is a leftist, which is why this incident is receiving absolutely no national media coverage.

The Scandals Are Catching Up With Mary Landrieu.  You would think the news that since 2000 Landrieu had spent some $34,000 on forty-three separate incidents of chartered travel to fundraisers and other campaign events, the result of an audit by the law firm of Perkins Coie into her Senate office books, would have exploded into Louisiana's media.  But Landrieu's embarrassing and troubling disclosure was released — naturally! — on Friday afternoon.  And by Sunday, no mention of the news had made the front pages of the newspapers in New Orleans, Shreveport, Lafayette or Lake Charles.

Black Crime in Baltimore High — but Should be Higher.  The idea that crime in Baltimore is going down comes up every time a case of black mob violence hits the local news.  Which is pretty much all the time.  Everything except that black part, that is, which they leave out.  Baltimore reporters are getting tired of having to constantly remind everyone how their city is safe — and getting safer.

Holder Aide Accidentally Calls Issa's Office to Spin IRS Scandal, Nets Don't Report.  An aide to Eric Holder, who thought he was calling Democratic congressman Elijah Cummings' office for help on leaking documents to selected reporters, accidentally spilled the beans of the latest IRS spin job because he called House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa's office instead.  This newest twist in the IRS targeting scandal, that broke last night, was not covered on ABC, CBS or NBC's Wednesday morning [9/10/2014] shows.  According to Issa, the documents in question were related to Andrew Strelka — the former Lois Lerner employee that the committee demanded be turned over to them for questioning last week.

Blackout: 300 Days Since ABC's 'Nightline' Covered ObamaCare.  As of September 10, 2014, it's been 300 days since ABC's Nightline covered ObamaCare.  In the 43 weeks since November 14, 2013, the show has avoided problems with the health care law and instead focused on extremely superficial topics, such as nude reality shows and the royal baby.  When the Associated Press reported, "More people newly insured by Medicaid under ObamaCare are seeking treatment in hospital emergency rooms," the hosts of Nightline didn't notice.

ABC and NBC Barely Mention Obama Approval Rating 'Near Record Lows'; CBS Ignores.  On Tuesday, ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's Today, offered mere seconds on President Obama's approval rating hitting "near record lows" amid his reluctance to aggressively combat ISIS terrorists.  CBS This Morning skipped any mention of the dismal poll numbers for the commander-in-chief.

MRC Study: TV Buries the Bad News on Obama's Collapsing Polls.  It's no secret that television news has long been addicted to public opinion polls; decades ago, all three broadcast networks decided to partner with an influential newspaper (ABC News with the Washington Post; CBS News with the New York Times; and NBC News with the Wall Street Journal) to sponsor their own regular surveys for use in their political coverage.  That's why it's so extraordinary that polling news has practically vanished from the Big Three evening newscasts in 2014 as President Obama's approval ratings have tumbled and the public opposes defining administration policies like ObamaCare. Just last Thursday, for example, Gallup found Obama's approval rating at a record low of 38 percent, yet none of the three broadcast networks bothered to mention this on their evening or morning newscasts.

Cold Summer: 1,025 Record Lows in First Three Weeks of August.  The NOAA Daily Weather Records for today, August 25, report that in the last 30 days there have been 331 U.S. "High Max" records set.  However, there were 2,104 (more than six times as many) "Low Max" records set.  The same NOAA page reports in its "Year to Date" section that 2014 has seen 7,053 High Max records set, but nearly three times that number (19,178) of Low Max records were set during the same period. [...] Of course, we continue to see blazing headlines and breathless broadcasts from the establishment news media regarding every new high temperature record, but a near total blackout of the news of low temperature records.

Sotloff Family Furious with White House... and The NYT Buried It.  The family of Steven Sotloff, the latest American journalist beheaded by ISIS, is reportedly "outraged" at the Obama administration for "deliberate leaks" they interpret as "an attempt to absolve the administration of inaction."  This reporting comes Wednesday from no less a source than the New York Times, which chose to bury the news under more than two dozen paragraphs: [...]

Networks Ignore Report That Obama Was Briefed on ISIS Going Back 'at Least a Year'.  On Tuesday night [9/2/2014], the three major broadcast networks omitted from their coverage on the Islamic group ISIS a report that President Barack Obama has received briefings on the terrorist organization "for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer."  ABC, CBS, and NBC all led their evening newscasts with multiple segments on the gruesome murder of American journalist Stephen Sotloff at the hands of ISIS in a propaganda video released on Tuesday afternoon.

Md. Governor Does Illegal Immigrants Another Favor, WashPost Buries it on B4.  In yet another instance of the Washington Post shielding the Maryland Democratic political establishment, including the party's nominee for governor, editors buried on page B4 of the Saturday, August 30 edition a stunning story about outgoing Gov. Martin O'Malley's refusal to cooperate with federal immigration officials to eventually deport illegal immigrants who have served time behind bars.

A Crisis As Millions Of Students Abused By Teachers.  We've all heard of the Catholic Church child abuse scandal that's still regularly covered, 20 to 40 years after much of the abuse took place.  It too was tragic, and acknowledged as such by the church, which has taken action to prevent its ever happening again.  The same can't be said of unionized public education — where child abuse appears to be rampant, often with little done about it and with teachers unions largely silent.  It gets little national media attention — certainly not on the scale that the church scandal did.

Networks Dodge Huge IRS Scandal News as DOJ Attorney Says Lost Lerner E-Mails Do Exist.  Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton appeared on the Fox News Channel (FNC) Monday afternoon and informed viewers that a Department of Justice (DOJ) attorney admitted to his organization on Friday [8/22/2014] that the e-mails belonging to former IRS official Lois Lerner that were thought to be lost likely still exist.  He declared to FNC's Shannon Bream that the story of Lerner's hard drive being damaged and destroyed and thus her e-mails were permanently lost has "all been a pack of malarkey" and "a big lie."  When it came to the major broadcast networks covering this huge story on their Monday evening newscasts, there was no coverage to be found as ABC, CBS, and NBC all carried out the latest censoring of news surrounding the IRS.

More about the missing IRS emails.

10 Acts of Jihad in America That Americans Haven't Heard About.  Here are some recent acts of jihad on American soil that you may have missed — all from this spring and summer.

Mainstream media censors Soros' connection to Rick Perry indictment.  On January 27, 1998, then First Lady Hillary Clinton — without a shred of credible evidence — infamously claimed during an NBC "Today Show" interview with Matt Lauer that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been working to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president."  Sixteen years later we have tangible, documented proof that a vast left-wing conspiracy is in fact out to destroy conservative presidential hopeful Gov. Rick Perry, and the liberals who run the establishment media are doing everything possible to cover it up.

NBC and ABC Ignore Obama Admin. Broke Law With Bergdahl Exchange; CBS Gives It 24 Seconds.  After Thursday's [2/21/2014] network evening newscasts ignored a report from the Government Accountability Office that the exchange of five terrorists from Guantanamo Bay for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl was illegal, NBC's Today and ABC's Good Morning America remained silent on the Obama administration scandal on Friday [8/22/2014].  Only CBS This Morning made any mention of the violation of federal law, providing a mere 24-second news brief on the topic.

The Jihadi Serial Killer no One's Talking About.  For two bloody months, an armed jihadist serial killer ran loose across the country.  At least four innocent men died this spring and summer as acts of "vengeance" on behalf of aggrieved Muslims, the self-confessed murderer has now proclaimed.  Have you heard about this horror?  Probably not.  The usual suspects who decry hate crimes and gun violence haven't uttered a peep.  Why?  Like O.J.'s glove:  If the narrative don't fit, you must acquit.  The admitted killer will be cast as just another "lone wolf" whose familiar grievances and bloodthirsty Islamic invocations mean nothing.

Nonwhite cop kills unarmed white youth, national media, AG and POTUS ignore.  While American and world media, along with the President and Attorney General of the United States, obsess over the death of Michael Brown at the hands of the Ferguson, Missouri police, few people outside of Utah have heard of the remarkably parallel and contemporaneous death of Dillon Taylor, an unarmed young man (and father-to-be) from a gun shot by a Salt Lake City policeman, whose name has not been released, but who has been identified the SLC chief of police as nonwhite.

New York Times Buries News of Officer Wilson's Injury.  The New York Times has big news on the biggest story in the country today, but as Noah Rothman at Hot Air discovered, the Times buried that news 26 paragraphs deep.  According to the Times' own police sources, "witnesses and forensic analysis have shown that Officer Wilson did sustain an injury during the struggle in the car."

Beaten to Death at McDonald's.  Out on a double date, the two couples pulled into the parking lot of so-called "University McDonald's" shortly after 2 a.m. that Sunday — and beheld a scene unlike anything portrayed in all those wholesome McDonald's television commercials.  Before them, hundreds of young black males were loitering about, some without shirts.  Other local residents — the more cynical and world-weary, both whites and most blacks — would have taken one look at the crowd and driven off, dismissing many of the young and posturing black males as thugs.  But not them:v innocent white kids from the suburbs.  They presumed this was post-racial America — and that they were in an easy-going college town.  Twenty minutes later, two of them were dead.  Incredibly, the race of the assailants was scrubbed from local news coverage; [...]

Cincinnati Enquirer Keeps Michelle Obama's Name Out of Story on District Ending Federal School Lunches.  Fort Thomas Independent Schools in Northern Kentucky have decided to get out of the federal school lunch program, specifically because of the requirements imposed in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act championed by First Lady Michelle Obama.  Simply put, the district is tired of being forced to give kids food they won't eat.  Until it ran into problems, HHFA was seen as Mrs. Obama's signature achievement, and the press fawned over its alleged awesomeness.  Now that the program has encountered fierce real-world resistance, her association with it seems to have vanished from many press reports.

An Inside Look at How Democrats Rig the Election Game.  The 2010 elections reversed decades of Democrat majority control in state houses.  Since then, GOP governors and legislatures all over the country have been restoring sanity to state government.  Most Americans don't know this of course, because the media won't tell you.

Not National News: Ohio Dem's Gubernatorial Campaign Implodes.  Several months ago, based on several far from minor out-of-the-gate mistakes, I characterized the candidacy of the Democratic Party's challenger to incumbent Republican Governor John Kasich as "the wreck that is Edward FitzGerald."  In the past week, FitzGerald has utterly imploded.  The latest revelation Tuesday afternoon, namely that he had "no license to drive at all from 2002 to 2008," leaves one wondering whether his party vetted him at all.  Former Cleveland Plain Dealer editorial director Brent Larkin calls this "at or near the top of the list" of "bizarre developments" he's seen in 45 years of covering politics.

Only CBS Acknowledges Gov't Missing $619 Billion from Agency Budgets.  On Wednesday, August 6, USA Today reported that the federal website USASpending.gov which is tasked with tracking government money, can't find $619 billion from different agency budgets. Despite the government losing track of hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars, CBS This Morning was the only network morning show to cover the report on Wednesday morning. ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's Today ignored the story altogether.

Obama is Betraying the Republic's Trust.  Real unemployment is still unmanageable and the number of people who have simply dropped out of the workforce may have as much as doubled during the last 6 years.  Has any of this made the news?  Has it led any evening reports?  Has anyone but FOX even mentioned these things?  When's the last time you read a story about the cost of a loaf of bread or a pound of hamburger since Obama was elected?

Samaritan's Purse Chief Admits Ebola 'Out of Control,' Slams Drudge for Reporting It.  Thursday [8/7/2014] at the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health hearing titled, "Combating the Ebola Threat," Samaritan's Purse's vice president of programs and government relations Ken Isaacs said, "Ebola is out of control in West Africa," and then criticized the reporting on the crisis by saying, "I look at the Drudge Report, it can drive a lot of panic."

"There is not a truth existing which I fear or would wish unknown to the whole world."

Top Secret Hamas Command Bunker in Gaza Revealed And why reporters won't talk about it.  The idea that one of Hamas' main command bunkers is located beneath Shifa Hospital in Gaza City is one of the worst-kept secrets of the Gaza war.  So why aren't reporters in Gaza ferreting it out?  The precise location of a large underground bunker equipped with sophisticated communications equipment and housing some part of the leadership of a major terrorist organization beneath a major hospital would seem to qualify as a world-class scoop — the kind that might merit a Pulitzer, or at least a Polk.  So why isn't the fact that Hamas uses Shifa Hospital as a command post making headlines?

Report: At Least 160 Children Died Digging Hamas' Tunnels.  Because of their size and agility, children make good tunnel-diggers.  The English knew this when they were digging coal mines during the Victorian era; Hamas knows it now.  Thus, the Journal of Palestine Studies (edited by President Obama's pro-Palestinian friend Rashid Khalidi) reported in 2012 that Hamas uses children to help dig tunnels into Israel.

White House condemns Israeli shelling of UN school.  The United States is condemning Israel's shelling of a U.N. school in the Gaza Strip that was sheltering displaced Palestinians.

The Editor says...
The AP didn't mention anything about missiles being stored in UN schools.  Hmmm.  I wonder why they left that part out.

NY Times Decries ISIS's 'Brutal Crackdown' on Iraqi Christians; Big Three Networks Yawn.  ABC, CBS, and NBC's morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the dire situation of Christians in Iraq, particularly after ISIS's takeover of the key city of Mosul.  The Islamic extremist group drove most of the Christians out of the city, and issued an ultimatum to those who remained:  covert to Islam, pay a hefty tax, or face death.  Refreshingly, the New York Times spotlighted the crisis in a Thursday [7/24/2014] op-ed, and noted that the Christian community in Mosul has lived there for nearly 2,000 years.

Boston Globe Ignores [its] Own Reporter's Viral Tweet About Obama Reaction to MH17 Crash.  It was the tweet that went viral around the world and all over the web.  The one notable exception where the tweet remains unmentioned is at the Boston Globe.  So what's so strange about that?  It's because the author of the tweet is Boston Globe reporter, Matt Viser.

TV Reporter Suspended After Rant About Fatherless 'Young Black Men'.  News 12 reporter Sean Bergin made a controversial statement about "young black men" on TV Monday [7/14/2014] and now he has reportedly been suspended.  The regional News 12 Networks, which serve New York and New Jersey, ran a story (above) about Jersey City Police Officer Melvin Santiago, who was fatally wounded in a shootout at a Jersey City Walgreens on Sunday.  The network interviewed angry residents in the segment, many of whom weren't very sensitive to the police officer's death.

TV Reporter Suspended for On-Air Comment About 'Young Black Men'.  News 12 New Jersey reporter Sean Bergin has reportedly been suspended for comments he made on-the-air Sunday evening about the black community. [...] The segment itself has also apparently been scrubbed from the News 12 website.

Reporter Suspended, Could Lose Job Over What He Said About 'Young Black Men' Live on the Air.  News 12 reporter Sean Bergin has been suspended after he argued on the air that the "anti-cop mentality that has so contaminated America's inner cities" is largely the result of "young black men growing up without fathers."  A source with direct knowledge of the situation confirmed to TheBlaze on Monday that Bergin has, in fact, been suspended over his remarks about the black community and may end up being fired.  The source said Bergin was asked not to come in Monday and Tuesday as the news station figures out how to handle the situation.

TV Reporter Speaks Out to Fox About Why He Quit After 'Young Black Men' Comment.  Sean Bergin, the New Jersey reporter who was suspended and got his pay docked (then quit) for a brief commentary he made about young black men, spoke out for the first time on Fox News tonight, telling Megyn Kelly why he quit and why he felt the need to speak out in that way.  Bergin was bringing attention to an "anti-cop mentality" in the black community and said, "The underlying cause of all of this, of course: Young black men growing up without fathers. Unfortunately, no one in the news media has the courage to touch that subject."

NBC Ignores VA Whistle-Blower Hearing; ABC Gives News Only 23 Seconds.  On Tuesday morning [7/15/2014], NBC's Today refused to cover the latest news in the Veterans Affairs scandal as the House Veterans Affairs Committee heard testimony Monday night [7/14/2014] from additional whistle-blowers who faced punishment from superiors for identifying allegedly manipulated response times for veterans who filed benefit and disability claims.

French 'Mother' Kills Teacher in Front of Class.  It was headlining AOL on Friday [7/4/2014]:  a story about a woman stabbing a schoolteacher to death in front of a class of five and six-year-olds.  The gruesome and bloody crime occurred in the southern French town of Albi; the victim was a 34-year-old mother of two.  But a certain bit of information is conspicuously missing from virtually all the reportage.  We're told the killer was under the impression that the teacher had accused her five-year-old daughter of theft.  We're told she had a history of child abuse and "severe psychiatric problems."  We're told she's 47.  And we're told she's a she.  But her name is nowhere to be found, and information about her background is... well, you'll see.

Anthony Cumia Gets Attacked, then Fired.  Anthony Cumia gets attacked all the time:  Most often for telling the truth about black crime and violence that is stratospherically out of proportion.  And how reporters condone it.  On Thursday night, July 3, his bosses at Sirius XM radio fired him for it.

Truth Buried — Again.  You'd think that a government audit showing how ObamaCare couldn't tell whether millions of enrollees were eligible for the subsidies they're getting would be front-page news.  Instead, the press hid it from view.  If you wanted to read in the New York Times about these findings — which detailed rampant problems verifying eligibility and income information from millions of ObamaCare applicants — you had to dig 17 pages into the news section.

89 Percent of Network Stories Omit Obama's Role in Causing Border Crisis.  While all three networks played clips of Barack Obama on Monday blaming the GOP for the border crisis, they have been reluctant to cite the President's own failure to enforce immigration laws as a cause for thousands of immigrants illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexican border.  From June 8 through the morning of July 1 ABC, CBS and NBC have offered a total of 45 stories on the border crisis, on their evening and morning shows, and in only 5 (11 percent) have they brought up Obama immigration policies as a possible cause for the most recent surge of illegal immigrants, including unaccompanied children, crossing the border.

Media Silent on Allegations that Cochran Campaign Engaged in Cash-For-Votes Scheme.  Reverend Steve Fielder, a pastor at the First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, is accusing Senator Thad Cochran's campaign of violating election laws by giving black Democratic voters cash in exchange for votes in the recent GOP runoff.  But mainstream media seem uninterested in the story.  The only outlet outside of conservative media covering the story is Forbes magazine.

IRS: Shame and Loathing on the Media Trail.  The front page of Tuesday's New York Times made no mention of the congressional hearings on the missing Lois Lerner emails and putative computer crash; the networks were a virtual silence of the not-so-lambs. [...] Political parties and politicians come and go.  The media doesn't.  They may be in the tank for Obama, but much more than that they are in the tank for themselves — a whole lifestyle and world view that has been going on for decades, moral narcissism distilled to its purest essence.

Media Bias and the Obama Scandals.  We live in a strange time.  Historically, reporters and editors have believed that their job is to disseminate news.  That is no longer true. [...] On the VA, don't get me started.  Just today, more details about the scandal emerged — secret waiting lists, altered records, dying veterans.  A year or two ago, leftists like Paul Krugman were touting the VA as evidence that socialized medicine is a smashing success.  Mightn't the current scandal tell us something about the desirability of government-administered medicine?  Our reporters and editors won't touch that angle with a stick.

Scarborough Savages NYT For Burying IRS Email Scandal: 'This Is A Scam!'  Co-host Mika Brzezinski had just wrapped up explaining another possible scandal for New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie, involving diverted funds for the Pulaski Skyway, when Scarborough pounced on the newspaper.  "Let's see, so this is the top of The New York Times," he began.  "I'm trying to figure out where the IRS story — is it on the front page?  Because actually, there was an investigation launched yesterday of the IRS — an internal investigation."

MSNBC's Halperin: If IRS Scandal Happened Under GOP President, 'This Story Would Be A National Obsession'.  Mark Halperin, a frequent panelist on MSNBC's Morning Joe, made an intriguing observation on Monday's [6/23/2014] show about the IRS scandal.  After saying that the recent news regarding the destroyed hard drive belonging to former IRS official Lois Lerner would be "a test for the news media," Halperin took a stance on the scandal that few on the cable channel would dare take.  "I think with a different administration, one that was a Republican administration, this story would be a national obsession and, instead, it's getting coverage here and a few other places, but it really deserves a lot more questions," opined Halperin.

Omission Control.  Reporter Sharyl Attkisson's story sounds familiar to me:  A major network got tired of her reports criticizing government.  She no longer works there.  The CBS correspondent reported on Fast and Furious, the shifting explanation for the Benghazi, Libya, attacks and the bungled rollout of the Obamacare website.  "But as time went on, it was harder to get stories on," she says.

CBS and NBC Skip New VA Scandal Outrage; ABC Gives News Just 14 Seconds.  Despite the newest revelation in the Veterans Affairs scandal on Thursday [6/19/2013] that one in ten veterans have to wait at least one month before they can get an appointment to see a doctor, CBS and NBC refused to cover the latest news in both their evening news shows on Thursday night as well as their morning shows on Friday morning.  ABC News only gave 14 seconds of coverage to the issue in a news brief during the 7:00 am hour on Friday's Good Morning America.  CBS News chose to instead publish an article about it on their website Thursday afternoon.

Media won't tell you, so here are reasons to doubt global warming.  Remember the poor polar bears?  The conservative Daily Caller website reported May 30: "Researchers with the Polar Bear Specialist Group (PBSG) of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature recently admitted to experienced zoologist and polar bear specialist Susan Crockford that the estimate given for the total number of polar bears in the Arctic was 'simply a qualified guess given to satisfy public demand.'"  A "qualified guess"?  Crockford, a professor at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, says there are 6,000 to 9,000 more bears than the 20,000 to 25,000 the PBSG guessed at.

Cincinnati Station Says 'No' to PC Reporting on Racially Motivated Crime.  A remarkable thing happened in Cincinnati on Thursday [6/12/2014].  WKRC-TV, which has taken to calling itself "Local 12," did a story on the growing problem of black-on-white teen mob violence — and called it black-on-white teen mob violence.  The event where the violence occurred took place two weeks earlier during Memorial Day weekend at the city's Taste of Cincinnati event downtown.

Proof that Friday afternoon document dumps work!
Only CBS Covers IRS Losing Two Years of Lois Lerner Emails.  On Monday [6/16/2014], only CBS This Morning reported Friday's stunning revelation that the IRS somehow lost two years worth of emails from Lois Lerner, the official at the center of the agency scandal in which conservative groups were unfairly targeted.  At the top of the morning show, co-host Norah O'Donnell wondered:  "How did the IRS lose emails in the scandal targeting conservatives after the government spent millions to back up data?"

More about Friday afternoon document dumps.

NBC's Williams Skips V.A. Scandal in Obama Interview; Omits Reid's Claim on Bergdahl Swap.  Brian Williams glossed over the V.A. scandal during his interview of President Obama on Friday's [6/6/2014] NBC Nightly News.  Williams did devote time to the ongoing controversy surrounding the release of senior Taliban leaders in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl — specifically the White House failing to inform Congress 30 days before the Islamists were let go from Guantanamo Bay, as required by federal law.  However, the anchor didn't mention that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid revealed that he was informed of the trade for Bergdahl on May 27, 2014 — a day before it actually happened.

American Nazi gives Hitler Salute from Rose Garden.  Today the corporate media are still covering up their complicity in Obama's worse-than-Watergate criminality.  Former SecState Hillary is still denying her own betrayals in Benghazi, sacrificing our people to protect the personal careers of big Democrats with a lifelong history of anti-American sabotage.  No wonder our former allies are enraged at us today.  No wonder Putin and the Iranians are drunk with laughter.  No wonder the Taliban are celebrating the coming Muslim Dark Ages, now visibly beginning to descend again over Afghanistan.  We can now see Obama's version of the Knockout Game against our allies, always favoring our deadliest self-proclaimed enemies.

How the Government Violated Its Own Ethics Rules, Then Covered It Up.  In her debut story as a senior independent contributor for The Daily Signal, Sharyl Attkisson investigates a government-funded experiment that put the lives of premature babies at critical risk.  The study of 1,316 infants deliberately manipulated preemies' oxygen levels — an action that could result in death or permanent disabilities.  Attkisson, in an exclusive interview with The Daily Signal, details her findings and argues why this story should matter.

Sharyl Attkisson on Journalism's Very Dangerous Trend.  Sharyl Attkisson, an award-winning investigative reporter who resigned from CBS News earlier this year, says the news media are heading down a dangerous path with attempts to "censor or block stories" that don't align with their preferred agenda.  "There's a tendency in the news media, on the part of some managers, to censor or block stories that don't fall in line with the message they want sent to the viewers," Attkisson said in an exclusive interview with The Daily Signal.  "I think that's really a very dangerous perspective to have."

Heritage Foundation starts an online site to cover unreported and under-reported news.  It's not enough to be a newsmaker these days, as the conservative Heritage Foundation surely has been with its vigorous opposition to federal budget deficits, Obamacare, immigrant "amnesty" and same-sex marriage.  Nowadays, you have to cover the news, too.  Or so says the Heritage Foundation, which on Tuesday [6/3/2014] will start doing just that.

In a Month, TV News Gives Less Airtime to VA Scandal Than Christie Controversy Received in Four Days.  In nearly four and a half weeks, the ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news shows have offered 110 minutes to an evolving Obama administration scandal involving secret lists designed to keep veterans from receiving proper medical treatment.  Back in January, it took those same network shows just four and a half days to churn that much coverage for Chris Christie's Bridgegate.

The IRS's Media Firewall.  After the full House of Representatives cited former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official Lois G. Lerner for contempt of Congress on Wednesday, the Washington Times fittingly made it the lead story.  Over at the Washington Post, however, print readers had to go 19 pages deep to "The Fed Page," a union-style newsletter for federal employees.  If the Post had buried the story any deeper, it would have been wedged into the classifieds or crumpled up in a backyard mulch barrel.

ABC, NBC Ignore Report Showing Obama Administration Knew About Ongoing VA Problems.  Of the big three networks, only the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley covered the new revelations in the VA scandal.  CBS News host Scott Pelley noted that "The Bush White House was so concerned about this back in 2008 that it warned the incoming Obama Administration."  CBS Evening News and Fox News' Special Report with Bret Baier were the only evening news programs to cover the report while NBC Nightly News and ABC World News remained silent.

Benghazi: How to rebut Democratic talking points in 7 easy lessons.  Most Americans have heard little if anything about this investigation because they've been relying on the main stream media for their news and in that forum, discussion about Benghazi has been fleeting.  It's difficult to be tired of something you seldom hear about.

5 Things the Media and Government Won't Tell You About Boko Haram.  [#3]  Muslim clerics recruit for them in mosques.  The British tabloid The Sun reported in late April that "Nigerian Muslim clerics living in the border towns of Cameroon and Nigeria are recruiting Boko Haram members in their mosques, the government of Cameroon has alleged." [...] This recruitment gives the lie yet again to the mainstream media and government dogma that Islamic jihad groups actually pervert the teachings of Islam.  If they did, Muslim clerics, above all, would know that and oppose them.  Yet Muslim clerics, all too often, are enthusiastic in their support of such groups, and sometimes even participate in them.  But that fact is not one that our law enforcement or military establishment is willing, at this point, to ponder.

Media misdirection and Climate Change.  While Republicans fitfully pursue contempt against Lois Lerner and form a select committee to dig into the Benghazi cover-up, the "mainstream" media pretend none of it is happening; following Speaker of the House John Boehner's announcement of the new Benghazi investigation, none of the three primetime "broadcast" news programs even mentioned it.

Report: TV abandons IRS scandal; just 14 stories in 10 months as issue rages again.  According to the conservative media watchdog, when a Democratic report was issued in June 2013 suggesting that liberal groups were targeted equally by the IRS, the major media gave up coverage, even though that report was widely rejected, even by Treasury's inspector general.  Since then, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform voted along party lines to recommend that the full House hold Lerner in contempt.  A Roll Call report even suggested that the House, after voting, could imprison her.

DHS Covers Up Another Mexican Military Incursion Into U.S..  Another Mexican military incursion into the United States occurred near San Diego this month and the Obama administration is trying to cover it up, though officials at one Homeland Security agency have come forward with the startling details.  The infiltration took place a few weeks ago at a cross-border drug tunnel recently discovered by federal authorities.  The U.S. Border Patrol was charged with guarding the tunnel, which runs under the U.S.-Mexico border and leads to a warehouse in Otay Mesa.  A group of at least five armed Mexican military soldiers came through the tunnel on April 1 and attempted to enter California through the warehouse, according to an account posted on the Border Patrol's local union website.

Networks Give 15 Times More Coverage to Correspondents' Dinner Than Benghazi.  On Monday, the three network morning shows provided 12 minutes 24 seconds to Saturday night's White House Correspondents' Dinner but only CBS This Morning reported House Speaker John Boehner on Friday announcing a new investigation into Benghazi — a news brief that totaled a mere 47 seconds.

CBS Evening News Finally Notices Benghazi Emails.  On Friday, CBS Evening News caught up with its Big Three competitors and reported on the latest developments on the controversy surrounding the September 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya.  CBS also finally mentioned its own president's family connection to a White House official involved in the Obama administration's handling of the immediate aftermath of the attack.

ABC Buries Own Results, Allows 18 Seconds for Obama 'Facing Worst Poll' of His Presidency.  The news that Barack Obama is "facing the worst poll numbers of his presidency" warranted a mere 18 seconds of attention from Good Morning America on Tuesday [4/29/2014].  This scant coverage is despite the fact that ABC conducted the poll in question (along with the Washington Post).  Reporter Amy Robach briefly explained, "And President Obama is returning to Washington today, facing the worst poll numbers of his presidency.  His approval rating has dropped to 41 percent, mostly because of the economy."  In contrast, when George W. Bush's approval rating dropped to 42 percent on March 7, 2006, GMA offered two segments.

ABC Ignores [Its] Own Poll Numbers Showing Obama's Lowest Approval Rating.  Tuesday's World News ignored ABC's own poll showing President Obama's lowest approval rating of his presidency.  ABC gave a scant 18 seconds to the numbers on Good Morning America earlier that day. [...] Instead of the poll numbers, however, the World News found two minutes for an update in Italy's trial of Amanda Knox, which NBC and CBS didn't think newsworthy.  ABC also devoted a 50-second news brief to the announcement of the cast members in new Star Wars movie.

CBS Evening News Again Makes No Mention of BenghaziCBS Evening News again failed to make mention of new revelations about Benghazi Thursday night, with such stories as flooding, wildfires and the Korean ferry disaster taking precedence.  There is a clear conflict of interest:  CBS News President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, the senior White House adviser at the center of the controversy over the White House talking points on the false narrative over what prompted the Benghazi terrorist attack.

NBC, CBS Ignore Congressional Hearing on Benghazi; ABC Gives It Only 46 Seconds.  On Thursday evening, ABC was the only broadcast network to cover the day's congressional hearing on the Benghazi attacks.  Both CBS and NBC ignored the hearing.  ABC only covered the story for 46 seconds; they gave twice that amount of coverage to the U.S. Olympic speedskating suits.  World News quoted retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Lovell, at the U.S. Africa Command headquarters during the attacks, telling Congress that the military "should have done more" to respond.

Exclusive: an interview with investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson.  Before her recent resignation from CBS, Sharyl Attkisson was a mainstream news star.  Multiple Emmys.  CNN anchor, CBS anchor on stories about space exploration.  Host of CBS' News Up to the Minute.  PBS host for Health Week.  Investigative reporter for CBS.  Attkisson dug deep into Fast&Furious, Benghazi, and the ill-effects of vaccines.  Too deep.  Her bosses shut her down and didn't air key stories.

Media ignores sold-out global warming 'skeptic' conference.  Climate scientists skeptical of claims that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are warming the planet gathered in Germany this month for a major, now sold-out climate conference, which the media has opted not to cover.  In early April, the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) hosted its seventh Climate Conference in Mannheim, Germany.  The two-day conference featured prominent climate scientists including Dr. Richard Lindzen of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, physicist Nir Shaviv of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and physicist Henrik Svensmark of the Danish National Space Institute.

Attkisson: Some CBS Bosses Seemed 'Personally Defensive' of the Obama Administration.  [Scroll down]  Some CBS News managers are so "ideologically entrenched," Attiksson explained, that they're willing to quash or bury reports that could inflict political damage on the sitting administration. [...] "I didn't sense any resistance in doing stories that were perceived to be negative to the Bush administration.  By anybody, ever."

Progressive Insurance.  Three miscreant California Democratic state senators — two charged with multiple felonies, one convicted of them — have only recently been put on leave.  They are still receiving their state salaries.  Since they are left-wing and of minority status, the scandals will soon be off the front pages, and calls for their resignations will be muted.

Big Three Networks Censor Huge IRS Scandal Developments.  At this point it might take a dead body to get the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks to give the IRS-Tea Party scandal any sort of real coverage.  Huge developments in the last week — like IRS official Lois Lerner receiving a criminal referral from the House Ways and Means Committee and e-mails proving she fed tax information on a targeted group to the staff of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D) — were completely censored by ABC and NBC news.  Only a 90 second report on Thursday's CBS This Morning kept last week's revelations from being totally blacked out on the Big Three networks.

New Census Questions Will Change ObamaCare Findings; Networks Ignore.  New Census questions will change the findings on the impact of ObamaCare, reported the New York Times on Tuesday.  The broadcast networks ignored this new report on the Tuesday evening newscasts, however.  In fact, a census official told the Times they "are expecting much lower numbers" of the uninsured "just because of the questions and how they are asked."  As the Times stated, the Census Bureau "is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama's health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said."

AP's Julie Pace: Media Not Covering IRS Scandal Because 'We Don't Have A Lot To Work With'.  Last week, the House Oversight Committee asked the Justice Department to seek criminal charges against former IRS official Lois Lerner.  Despite the newest revelations in the IRS scandal, the Associated Press' Julie Pace attempted to excuse the lack of media coverage.  Appearing as a panelist on Fox News Sunday on April 13, Pace argued, "If you are going to keep the story going and you want to keep the investigation going, eventually there has to be some material there to work with.  And we're in this period of time where we don't have a lot to work with."

The Editor says...
Plenty of other news outlets have found a lot to report, over the last couple of years, about the use of the IRS as a weapon.  A great deal of it has been collected on this page.

Networks Ignore House GOP's Criminal Referral for Lois Lerner.  In a major new development in the IRS scandal, House Republicans voted on Wednesday to send a criminal referral to the Department of Justice for former IRS chief Lois Lerner.  FNC's Special Report with Bret Baier devoted a full story to the vote by the committee chaired by Congressman Dave Camp, but none of the three broadcast network evening newscasts covered the vote.  The letter sent to Attorney General Eric Holder stated that "findings" from the Ways and Means Committee, chaired by Republican Camp, "suggest that Lerner may have violated multiple criminal statutes."  The letter went on to add that "the Committee asks that you pursue this evidence."  The three networks ignored this letter, however, although CBS and ABC talked about Hillary Clinton's presidential aspirations.

Leland Yee is no longer a story, but CNN is.  It's not that there isn't still an important news story unfolding in the saga of California State Senator Leland Yee... there is.  In fact, federal indictments were handed down on Friday and one of his alleged co-conspirators was ordered released on a quarter million dollars bail. [...] What's really begun to come into focus here is the mind boggling side bar involving the complete radio silence on this at CNN.  It's gone well beyond the level of slow response, lack of interest or some sort of administrative snit at the network and moved into the range of the truly bizarre.

The media hate Republicans.  California State senator (and, until last week, candidate for secretary of state) Leland Yee was well-known as an anti-gun activist.  Then, last week, he was indicted for, yes, conspiring to smuggle guns and rocket launchers between mobsters and terrorists in exchange for massive bribes.  Some highlights, as excerpted by San Francisco Magazine. [...] This all sounds like news.  You've got charges of huge bribes, rampant hypocrisy, illegal weapons and even a connection with foreign terrorists — and from a leading politician in an important state.  But — and here's the part Hollywood would miss — outside of local media like San Francisco magazine, the coverage was surprisingly muted.

Indicted Charlotte mayor used access to White House in making plans for pay-offs.  Former Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon was indicted on federal corruption charges last week and immediately resigned his position.  Cannon had replaced former Mayor Anthony Foxx, who was tapped in 2013 by the Obama administration to lead the Department of Transportation. News of Cannon's indictment got only passing mention in national news, along with a handful of other corruption charges for Democrats.

The poster boy for liberal hypocrisy ignored by national media, but outrages San Francisco.  The liberal media are trying to ignore his arrest, but California State Senator Leland Yee is such an amusing piñata of liberal hypocrisy that even his home town liberal newspaper is joining in the mockery fun. [...] Outlets like CNN which ignore this embarrassment to liberals do so at their peril.

The Leland Yee Story, As a Free Press Would Tell It.  Now, one might think that this is a major scandal.  A prominent politician, a principled advocate of gun control, turns out to be a gun runner who wants to import shoulder-fired missiles, in exchange for a large bribe.  How could the networks resist a story like that?!  Poor CNN has been limping along with a lousy lane closure for what, two or three years now?  A dynamite story like Yee's could put them back on the ratings map!  Oh, one thing I forgot to mention — Leland Yee is a Democrat.  So no national news organization has any interest in his story.  Sorry.  It's on the back pages of the local papers.  This is more proof, if it were needed, that the Democratic Party's news media are not primarily interested in ratings or profits, but in advancing the party's narrative.

Obama's 'children' on a rampage.  [Scroll down]  The mainstream media, ever-supportive of Obama, neglects to publicize any such event and only local newspapers are reporting the increasing meaningless and violent attacks against white victims. [...] It is undeniable that once those wrong doers in the black community (which represent a very small minority) realized they could essentially get away with murder, it was inevitable that racial anarchy would ensue.  America might have been a post racial nation before but after 2008, it has become anything thanks to the constant class warfare promoted by the Democrat Party for its own preservation of power.

Wind Blows.  Despite the hundreds of square miles of wind turbines in the Lone Star State, just 6.4 percent of electricity used to keep the lights on in homes comes from wind.  Nationally, it's just 3 percent. [...] The earth is trashed in the process of building these farms, something big wind companies, so-called environmentalists, and the government don't want people to know.  Not only are hundreds of miles of land destroyed with concrete that is often left behind by companies when a farm is out of use, the products necessary to manufacture wind turbines are mined in China without regulation and with a byproduct of toxic, radioactive waste.

Bob Kerrey Calls Obama a Delusional Liar; Renders Himself MSM Nonperson.  Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful.  Would the mainstream media not be all over the story?  Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well.  The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks.  Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect him to become an MSM nonperson.

Politico Buries Senator Leland Yee's Arms Trafficking Scandal.  The world of political news was captivated by Thursday's [3/27/2014] report of the arrest for gun trafficking of a famously anti-gun California state senator.  Yet while most other news outlets reported the incident, Politico, an outlet that supposedly leads the nation in political news, didn't post a single story on the incident the day the news broke.  This is the same Politico that managed to publish 90 separate stories on the Herman Cain sexual harassment scandal when it broke — within six days.

Brent Bozell Tells Megyn Kelly About TV's Obamacare Omission.  MRC president Brent Bozell appeared Thursday night [3/27/2014] (as he often does) on "The Kelly File" on the Fox News Channel.  The subject was this week's MRC studies on Obamacare — the Rich Noyes study on the under-coverage of Obamacare, and the Geoffrey Dickens study on all the victims who've been ignored.  Brent touched on how only CBS did one Saturday story on a four-year-old who was denied care under Obama's alleged "signature achievement."  But he professed amazement about how a program so ambitious that the networks called it a "landmark" and "historic" when it passed is now getting buried by Brian, Diane, and Scott: [Video clip]

'A Criminal Organization Masquerading as a Political Party'.  Certainly, at a minimum it's safe to say that Democrats were rather active on the nation's police blotters today.  Since this is one narrative the MSM will never assemble (as they're in on the fun), it's up to the Blogosphere — so here we go.

And now... some censored news from the Democrat Utopia of Venezuela.  I'm so confused: we're not seeing any of this on "mainstream" media.

ABC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS All Skip Political ID for 'Shocking' Corruption By Democrat Mayor.  ABC, CNN, MSNBC and PBS on Wednesday and Thursday all covered the "shocking" corruption involving the Democratic mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina.  Yet, while talking about the tens of thousands of dollars in bribes he sought, none of these networks identified Patrick Cannon's political party. Only a Fox News host referred to him as a Democrat.

Unethical Media Helps Sweep Democrat Bribe-Taking Under the Rug.  So far, the big three networks have yet to cover the major bribery scandal unfolding in Pennsylvania.  In that scandal, state investigators targeted Republicans and Democrats in the legislature and offered them bribes.  But only a few of the Democrats accepted bribes.  The investigation began under a Republican attorney general, but when Democrat Kathleen Kane won the state attorney general's office in 2012, she quickly scuttled that investigation.

Story on Bin Laden's Pakistan Ties Disappears from International New York Times.  Readers of today's edition of the The International New York Times in Pakistan might be forgiven for thinking there was a severe mix up at the printing press, finding a glaring blank space on the cover.  It was actually a snipping of a story from the New York Times Magazine titled "What Pakistan knew about Bin Laden."  In the piece, Carlotta Gall, who has reported from Afghanistan since around 2001, proposes that the Pakistani government not only knew about Osama bin Laden's whereabouts for years, but had a desk assigned to handle him.

Ego te absolvo.  Carlota Gall of the New York Times describes what — if true — must be the biggest cover up in of all of the Obama administration's checkered history.  Her article is titled "What Pakistan Knew About Bin Laden".  But it is really about what the Obama administration knew that Pakistan knew about Bin Laden.  The answer, as far as she can tell is that Washington knows for a fact that Osama bin Laden was Pakistan's creature.  They know it was Pakistan — or factions within it — that ran the whole war on terror.  But, she writes, the Obama administration has made a policy decision to ignore this perfidy, since to publicly acknowledge Islamabad's guilt would force the administration to act in ways they are not prepared to act.

The Pornified Professor Versus Pro-Life Youth.  The other day, this story hit the New Media.  It's one the Old Media will simply never report.  Two sisters, 16 and 21, and members of Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, were holding a pro-life sign while demonstrating at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  A choppy cell phone video caught the scene:  Students hurl obscenities at the young girls while a large, imposing woman, with two accomplices in tow, march off with the sign, having ripped it from one girl's hands.  The girls follow the thugs to the elevator, and as the video continues recording, the intimidating woman sneers at the girls, taunts them and dares them to try retrieving the stolen sign while her accomplices laugh.

The Not-So-Mysterious Disappearance of News about Malaysian Flight 370.  Like many of you, I have read and watched "news" reports about Malaysian flight 370 (MH370) ad nauseum.  And I have been especially struck by (and concerned by) what has not been reported.  For example:  did you know that the pilot of MH370 was Muslim?  Did you know that the copilot was Muslim?  Did you know that the captain of MH370 was a fervent supporter of Muslim political activist Anwar Ibrahim?  Did you know that Captain Shah was (is?) related to a son-in-law of Ibrahim's?  Did you know that Ibrahim was convicted of sodomy (a crime in Malaysia) only hours before flight 370 took off?  Did you know that Captain Shah probably attended that sodomy trial and heard the verdict?  Did you know that Ibrahim purportedly has ties to the "Muslim Brotherhood?"  (Please keep in mind that I am not trying to imply any conclusions regarding the fate of MH370 — I am merely stating facts).  If you are aware of those things, then congratulations, you are ahead of the curve — most folks don't have a clue.  And that is just the way the MSM would like to keep it.

Doomed airliner pilot was political fanatic.  An image has emerged of the pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines jet wearing a T-shirt with a 'Democracy is Dead' slogan as it has been revealed he could have hijacked the plane in an anti-government protest.  Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, a father-of-three, was said to be a 'fanatical' supporter of the country's opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim — jailed for homosexuality just hours before the jet disappeared.  It has also been revealed that the pilot's wife and three children moved out of the family home the day before the plane went missing.

WSJ: Terrorists Could Darken U.S. Power Grid; Nets Ignore, Cover Late Princess Diana Instead.  "The U.S. could suffer a coast-to-coast blackout if saboteurs knocked out just nine of the country's 55,000 electric-transmission substations on a scorching summer day, according to a previously unreported federal analysis," the Wall Street Journal's Rebecca Smith reported on the front page of Thursday's paper. [...] A development like this is quite newsworthy and a topic that makes for good TV news, yet the broadcast networks — ABC, CBS, and NBC — completely ignored the item both on the March 13 evening newscasts and the March 14 morning news programs.

Exclusive: High Level Source Confirms Secret US Nuclear Warhead Transfer.  A high level source inside the military has now confirmed to us that Dyess Air Force base is actively moving nuclear warheads to the East Coast of the United States in a secret transfer that has no paper trail. [...] This is of particular interest not only due to the fact that the Syrian situation has escalated to the point of a very realistic hot war scenario, but due to the fact that Dyess has repeatedly denied the existence of nuclear warheads inside the base.

Top Nuke Commanders Terminated Following Missing Nuclear Warheads Report.  Two of the top nuclear commanders within the United States have now been terminated following the exclusive high level military leak report by Alex Jones and myself regarding the secret and unsigned nuclear weapons transfer from Dyess Air Force base to South Carolina. Disturbingly, the high level suspensions from top generals within the military establishment are not the only red flags to follow the leaked report.

Intelligence Insider Speaks on the Record About False Flags and Government Lies.  This source talks explicitly about the incident at the Dyess Air Force Base involving the reported unauthorized shipment of nuclear warheads from that base.  The incident at Dyess was broken exclusively by Anthony Gucciardi and Alex Jones of Infowars last Tuesday, on the same day that war hawk Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) made a speech citing the need for the U.S. to attack Syria.  During that speech, Graham made the extraordinary and almost surreal statement that failure by the U.S. to intervene could result in nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists, and that "could result in a [nuclear] bomb coming to Charleston Harbor."  Coincidence?

ObamaCare Meets Kafka.  Daily we learn of cancer patients who are losing their medical coverage, their doctors, their access to oncology centers only to be met with the derision of Harry Reid who calls them "liars."  Gary Weiss writes of his experience as he signed up for his 2014 health insurance on the New York exchange.  He was puzzled by the fact that the Gold plan cost more than the Silver plan although the Silver plan was substantially better and he "thought it odd that this peculiarity was nowhere noted in any of the news media accounts of the New York debut of Obamacare."

Sharyl Attkisson resigns from CBS News.  CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday [3/10/2014].  Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network's liberal bias, an outsize influence by the network's corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said.  She increasingly felt that her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

Echoes of Edward R. Murrow in Sharyl Atkisson's departure from CBS News.  CBS News has lost its strongest claim to be a fair and non-partisan news source with the departure of Sharly Atkisson from the network.  The award-winning reporter has been squeezed-out because of her reporting on investigative themes inconvenient to the Obama administration, including Fast and Furious and the Benghazi Scandal — two incidents in which United States government officials lost their lives.

Sharyl Attkisson's Time on CBS Evening News Fell by Two Thirds After 2009.  Earlier today Sharyl Attkisson announced on Twitter that she was leaving CBS News.  Early reports suggest the split was "amicable" though Attkisson is said to have wanted to leave because she had grown frustrated with the network's "liberal bias."  Specifically, she felt it was a struggle to get her work on the CBS Evening News, the network's flagship news program.

The Sharyl Attkisson approach.  The Obama administration won't answer the CBS News correspondent's questions because her investigations — into Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Solyndra — often reflect negatively on it.  Some colleagues at CBS News, where she has worked for two decades and earned multiple Emmy awards, dismiss her work because they perceive a political agenda.  And now, she says, someone may have hacked into her computers.  Attkisson's one piece of solace may come from finally gaining some like-minded colleagues in the media.  For years, Attkisson has been one of the few mainstream reporters pursuing critical stories about the Obama administration. [...] Attkisson is a dogged reporter, driven by a strong skepticism of government.

The Media's Obama Protection Society.  While [Sharyl] Attkisson is just one reporter and CBS has long since ceased being a dominant force in the national media, this may be a crucial moment in the history of American journalism.  It was assumed that any major news outlet would regard aggressive coverage of all administrations as a given.  But that ceased to be the case when Barack Obama entered the White House.  If Attkisson is being shown the door at CBS it is not because her work is not highly regarded but because she has violated the prime directive of liberal media insiders:  thou shalt not report on Obama in the same way that you reported on George W. Bush or even Bill Clinton.  The liberal bias that conservatives have long complained about is out of the closet.

AP Reports Ex-Rep. Mel Reynolds' Saga's Latest Absurd Turn; Omits Party ID.  Suffice it to say, that story would be the watercooler topic of the day in the liberal media and the Republican's party ID would be noted in every story.  But, of course, we're talking about the saga of ex-congressman and ex-con Mel Reynolds (D-Illinois).  The Associated Press has the latest in his ongoing saga, but, alas, left out his party affiliation from the story entirely.

Establishment Press Ignores Turley's 'Government Unto Himself' Warning on Obama's Executive Overreach.  [L]eft-leaning law professor Jonathan Turley warned a Congressional committee on Wednesday that President Obama's extensive use of executive orders, executive actions, and unilateral regulatory moves threatens to enable the President, as Turley phrased it in a Fox News interview on Thursday, to "effectively become a government unto himself."  If Turley had made his statement in 2006 or 2007 during the Iraq War, it would almost certainly have become a media obsession.  Instead, [...] Turley's testimony is being completely ignored by everyone except center-right news outlets and bloggers.

Employees Petition MSNBC Hosts for Workplace Rights, Left-Wing Anchors Remain Silent.  As much as MSNBC's left-wing prime time hosts portray themselves to be on the side of the workers, none of the anchors have responded to 10,000 petitions delivered to the network on Thursday [2/20/2014] from NBC writers and producers demanding more workplace rights.

NY lawmaker: Parents should take parenting classes.  New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz Jr. introduced a bill that would require parents of elementary school children to attend a minimum of four parent support classes.  If parents don't go, 6th graders won't move onto 7th grade.  Leslie Venokur, the co-founder of Big City Moms, called the idea "crazy" and "insane."

The Editor says...
When the news media says "parents," that almost always means "mothers."  And somehow the writer of this article forgot to mention that the State Senator with the totalitarian idea is a Democrat.  Oops.  The word "Democrat" was probably omitted because there was no room for it.  No, wait — the article was posted on the internet, where space is unlimited.

This article includes no mention of the Senator's party affiliation:
Former Hospital Owner Will Say He Bribed Senator.  The former owner of a tiny orthopedic hospital with an unusually heavy roster of spinal surgery patients was charged Friday [2/21/2014] with health care fraud in a $500 million scheme to defraud workers' compensation insurance providers with the help of a California state senator.

A Real New Jersey Scandal Tied to Democrats Being Ignored by Media.  Even as Newark, New Jersey was laying off policemen and was pleading for more tax money and state bailouts, it has now been discovered that a heavily employed city contractor was stealing millions from the city with crony deals and bribery and it's all tied to people appointed by Cory Booker — the man many Democrats think might be the "next" Barack Obama.  There is even no-work jobs to buddies and other such criminal waste.  All this comes from investigations into a city agency called the Watershed Conservation Development Corporation, an entity that supposedly monitored and managed the city's 35,000 acres of reservoirs and other water resources.

Planned Parenthood Pays $2 Million for Wrongful Death, Press Ignores.  Late last week came the news that Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation have agreed to pay $2 million in a wrongful death settlement to the surviving young son of a woman who died after an abortion at a Chicago Planned Parenthood in 2012.  This is huge news, no?  Were this a settlement to a family whose loved one died because a hospital refused her an abortion, it would be broadcast everywhere.

Media Sidestep Five-Figure Price Estimate on Mrs. Obama's State Dinner Dress.  Michael W. Chapman of our sister site CNSNews.com reports on cost estimates for the hand-sewn gown Michelle Obama wore at Tuesday's state dinner for the prime minister of France.  Think five figures.  If Ann Romney were First Lady now, would that escape the media's politicized scrutiny?

US Troop Deaths in Afghanistan Skyrocket Under Obama.  U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan have skyrocketed under President Obama.  Since 2009, 73 percent of all U.S. deaths in the country have taken place, amounting to 27.1 fatalities per month, on average.  Billy and Karen Vaughn, Gold Star parents of Special Operations Chief (SEAL) Aaron Vaughn who was killed in action in 2011, are speaking out about why.

Steve Hayes Pleads: 'Where is the Mainstream Media' on Obama's Lawlessness?  "Where is the mainstream media on this?" Steve Hayes of The Weekly Standard pleaded on Tuesday's [2/11/2014] Special Report with Bret Baier in reference to President Obama's latest decision to change the ObamaCare law.  "Can you imagine if this were George W. Bush?  I mean, we would be talking about a constitutional crisis, front page New York Times splashed above the fold, 'George W. Bush: Dictator President.'  You're seeing none of that."

Poof: A Scandal Disappears.  It requires terrific confidence in the passivity of the press to float the discredited "Cincinnati did it all" dodge since we know that IRS employees in that office were taking direction from Washington.  We further know that IRS offices in California, Oklahoma, Washington, D.C. and other places have been identified as singling out groups with "Tea Party" or "Patriot" in their names.  Obama's confidence in the press is not misplaced.  Despite juicy opportunities to delve into the story of government abusing its power, reporters have let the matter drop.

Satellites show no global warming for 17 years 5 months.  The monthly satellite lower-troposphere temperature anomaly from Remote Sensing Systems, Inc., is now available.  Taking the least-squares linear-regression trend on this dataset (the bright blue horizontal line through the dark blue data), there has now been no global warming — at all — for 17 years 5 months. [...] Would readers like to make a projection of how many mainstream media outlets will report this surely not uninteresting fact?

George Will: IRS Scandal [is] as Big as Watergate and Iran-Contra; So Where's the Media?  Appearing on Fox News Channel's Special Report on Wednesday [2/5/2014], conservative columnist George Will said the scandal involving the Internal Revenue Services' targeting of conservative groups is as serious as Watergate or Iran-Contra.  The distinction between those scandals and the one involving the IRS, he said, was that the press covered those earlier controversies heavily while they have largely dismissed the latest.

Another Obamacare Horror Story Which Won't Get Further Than Local News.  I suspect that more than a few readers have noticed, with likely little surprise, that there hasn't been a lot of national establishment press attention paid to how Obamacare has been working out in the real world since it officially went into effect on January 1. [...] You might find coverage of that in the British wing of the Washington press corps, and that's about it.

Don't Know the Party of a Politician Caught in a Scandal? He's Probably a Democrat.  Within the span of 40 seconds, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams reported on two politicians caught in scandals, one a Republican the other a Democrat, but he gave the party affiliation of only one of the troubled politicians.  Can you guess which one?

Word Not Found In NYT 5500 Word Hillary Profile: Benghazi.  Friday [1/24/2014], the venerable New York Times Magazine published a mammoth 5500-plus word profile of Hillary Clinton and the world around her.  It is titled "Planet Hillary," and two words you will not find on this mammoth planet are "Libya" and "Benghazi."

Did someone mention Benghazi?

Colorado will show why legalizing marijuana is a mistake.  On Jan. 1, Colorado made history as the first jurisdiction in the modern era to license the retail sales of marijuana. [...] While it is true that most people who use marijuana won't become addicted to heroin or otherwise hurt society as a result, Colorado's experiment with legal pot can be called anything but successful.  What didn't make the news were some troubling developments.

What a lost prison manuscript reveals about the real Nelson Mandela.  Everyone thought Mandela was a known entity, but he turns out to have led a double life, at least for a time.  By day, he was or pretended to be a moderate democrat, fighting to free his people in the name of values all humans held sacred.  But by night he donned the cloak and dagger and became a leader of a fanatical sect known for its attachment to the totalitarian Soviet ideal.  When Ellis first aired this theory, it read like a Cold War thriller, but when Mandela died last month, the African National Congress and the SACP [South African Communist Party] both issued statements confirming that it was true:  at the time of his arrest in 1962, Nelson Mandela was a member of the SACP's innermost central committee.

New Evidence Emerges about Nelson Mandela and His Secret Communist Past.  We've known for some time that Nelson Mandela was a member of the South African Communist Party. It was hard for fawning liberals to acknowledge the meaning of his membership, so they came up with a narrative explaining it.  Their story went something like this:  He only briefly joined to get the benefit of their organizational talent, and his membership was rather symbolic, and hardly meaningful.  What is important is his steadfast commitment to non-violence, his adherence to political democracy, and the role he played after emerging from prison in the waning days of apartheid.  But with each passing day, more has come out to put Mandela's allegiance to communism in more perspective.

WashPost Suffers Another Disgusting Case of Fort Hood Amnesia in Assessing Obama's Terrorism Record.  On the front page of Saturday's Washington Post, reporter Scott Wilson spun furiously to avoid the obvious fact that candidate Obama's promises and President Obama's record on the War on Terror are remarkably at odds.  Worse yet, Wilson insisted that only the Boston Marathon bombings (death toll: three) counts as a "successful mass terrorist attack on Obama's watch," which completely avoids the mass shooting at Ford Hood by an Islamic radical (death toll: 13), which is often ridiculously categorized as workplace violence.

The Conservative Targeting Scandal You've Never Read About.  It's funny what the mainstream media will and won't cover.  Remember how big networks tried to downplay the IRS's targeting of conservative groups?  Now they're downright ignoring a similarly disturbing abuse of power — this time, in Wisconsin.

Secret Mandela Autobiography Reveals Soviet Sympathies.  In Nelson Mandela's celebrated 1994 autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom, the late South African leader and Nobel laureate was careful to distance himself from communism.  However, in the original manuscript — quietly published online in 2011 and 2012, and only recently noticed — Mandela openly sympathizes with communism and the Soviet Union, and calls the "US brand" of "imperialism" the "most loathsome and contemptible."

CBS Ends 6-Month Censorship of IRS Scandal to Tell Viewers FBI Won't File Charges.  CBS finally ended its almost six-month long ban on the IRS-Tea Party investigation to announce to its viewers, on Tuesday's [1/14/2014] CBS This Morning, that the FBI is not expected to "file criminal charges" and has yet to find "proof of political bias."  However in the time since CBS last reported on the scandal on July 24, they have censored bombshells in the investigation like:  Rep. Darrell Issa accusing the FBI of stonewalling; the discovery of e-mails by IRS officials sent both to the FEC and the White House; and most recently the announcement of an Obama donor being named in charge of the Justice Department investigation.

FBI Feeds Cynicism About IRS Scandal.  After several months of virtual radio silence in the mainstream press about the IRS scandal, [...] the IRS affair got back into the news in its own right today [1/14/2014] as the Wall Street Journal reported that the FBI is unlikely to prosecute anyone for the practice in which organizations affiliated with the Tea Party and other conservatives causes were specifically targeted for discriminatory treatment.

1,687,000 Fewer Americans Have Jobs Today Than 6 Years Ago.  Although the number of people who had jobs in the United States increased by 143,000 from November to December, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, that still left 1,687,000 fewer Americans holding jobs than held jobs six years ago in December 2007 — the month the last recession began.

The Holder Effect.  Thanks to the internet, the liberal elites who censor the output of the major news organizations can no longer cover up events that fail to depict contemporary life as they wish it to be.  But even if you don't hear about it or read about it from one of their publications or networks, your chances of learning about these ["knockout game"] crimes are much better today than just a few years ago when the so-called mainstream media could effectively bury what was unfavorable to their vision of fit to print.

24 Underreported Democrat Scandals That Make News Media's 'Bridgegate Mania' Look Like a Joke.  Whatever happened in New Jersey under Governor Chris Christie in regards to the already-infamous "bridgegate," the open gloating by the media over the unacceptable behavior of the Republican governor's staffers is extremely revealing.  Regardless of one's views on Governor Chris Christie, this coordinated political feeding frenzy is liberal hypocrisy at its finest.

How the Obama administration dismantled American government.  Obamacare is a flea bitten dog that never would have been enacted without wholesale and deliberate falsehoods said over and over again by Barack Obama and every Democrat cheerleader.  It never would have been enacted without legislative sleights-of-hand and backroom bribes offered to key Democrats.  It never would have been enacted and Barack Obama would likely not have won a second term without the willing negligence of a toothless "watchdog press" who refused to independently investigate or report obvious lies.

ABC, NBC Mum on Why Gay Wedding on Rose Parade Float Wasn't Part of TV Coverage.  The two television networks — ABC and NBC — that covered the 2014 Tournament of Roses parade live on Jan. 1 are not saying why the wedding of two men atop the AIDS Healthcare Foundation's float was not part of their programming viewed by more than 60 million people around the world.  When CNSNews.com asked whether the wedding was covered and, if not, why not, ABC's press office said there would be no official statement about the event and cited technical issues.  NBC did not respond to the questions.

Reporters Hit a White House Stone Wall.  With the exception of those who depend on Fox, ABC radio, the Wall Street Journal, and other conservative outlets, too many of the consumers of news are blissfully unaware of the liberal, rubber stamp product they are receiving.  It is the complete betrayal of those whom the press is supposed to serve.  They did not report the truth about Obamacare.  They have not reported the truth about Obama's failed foreign affairs policies, including the attack on Benghazi.  They have largely ignored other scandals.  Obama's new economic "inequality" lies are right out of the Communist Manifesto.  The result, however, was his reelection in 2012 and millions of canceled health plans.

Ripping Off the "Progressive" Mask.  It is a sad fact that telling a lie these days has become more convenient than telling the truth.  This is a terrible commentary on those with access to our major media.  Consider the coverage of the inauguration of Bill de Blasio as New York City's mayor.  The term "progressive" is used in most accounts to describe him and his backers.  De Blasio accepts that term.  Yet, by any objective measure, he is a dedicated Marxist, and has been for most of his life.  For example, he never disavowed his support for the communist Sandinistas in Nicaragua.  He claims to have honeymooned in communist Cuba, when such a trip was illegal.  His wife was a member of a Marxist collective.

10 Forms of 2013 Media Malpractice.  [#3] Decide that really bad news doesn't matter.  When the government's initial report on fourth-quarter 2012 economic growth showed contraction, the editors at Bloomberg News decided that the nation's gross domestic product (GDP) is an "imperfect measure of progress," and that we really should be looking at indicators of "social progress or human happiness."  How convenient.

MSM Glosses Over Irony of Global Warming Scientists Trapped in Antarctic Ice.  Somewhere far, far to the south where it is summer, a group of global warming scientists are trapped in the Antarctic ice.  If you missed the irony of that situation, it is because much of the mainstream media has glossed over that rather inconvenient bit of hilarity.

Networks Miss 'Climate Change' Irony of Ship Stuck in 10 Feet of Antarctic Ice.  A Russian research vessel has been stuck in thick ice in the Antarctic since Christmas morning, and predictably the big three networks are enjoying the novelty of such an event.  However, despite the obvious news story, ABC, CBS and NBC have all missed one great irony in their reporting.  On Monday December 30, all three networks covered the story, but only CBS even used the words "climate change" when discussing the trapped ship.  All three failed to point out the irony that this event is an embarrassment for those pushing the liberal "climate change" narrative.

Global Warming Researchers Ice-Bound; 96 Percent of Network Stories Censor Why Ship Is There.  Antarctic ice trapped a ship full of scientists on a climate change expedition.  Yet, 96 percent of network news reports about the stranded researchers ignored climate change entirely.  The ship has been stuck since Christmas morning.  The broadcast networks mostly ignored the reason the Russian ship, Akademic Shokalskiy, was on its way to Antarctica.  Twenty-five out of 26 stories (96 percent) on the network morning and evening news shows since Dec. 25 failed to mention climate change had anything to do with the expedition.

Frozen Out: 98% of Stories Ignore That Ice-bound Ship Was On Global Warming Mission.  A group of climate change scientists were rescued by helicopter Jan. 2, after being stranded in the ice since Christmas morning.  But the majority of the broadcast networks' reports about the ice-locked climate researchers never mentioned climate change.  The Russian ship, Akademic Shokalskiy, was stranded in the ice while on a climate change research expedition, yet nearly 98 percent of network news reports about the stranded researchers failed to mention their mission at all.  Forty out of 41 stories (97.5 percent) on the network morning and evening news shows since Dec. 25 failed to mention climate change had anything to do with the expedition.  In fact, rather than point out the mission was to find evidence of climate change, the networks often referred to the stranded people as "passengers," "trackers" and even "tourists," without a word about climate change or global warming.

Sharpton Holds Chicago 'Town Hall' on Gun Violence, 'Tea Party' Rhetoric Breaks Out; Local Media Mum.  Rebel Pundit at Breitbart News reports that a Thursday meeting in the city's Hyde Park area not far from President Obama's Chicago home didn't exactly turn out the way Sharpton would have liked.  There was even talk of having "Tea Party" meetings "like Republicans do."  Sharpton doesn't need to worry too much, though, because Chicago's establishment press has ignored what happened.  Shamefully, so have a couple of smaller publications which apparently prefer bland misdirection over substantive reporting.

NY Times admits Obamacare will cause middle class suffering more than a year after election.  The mainstream media follows the New York Times' lead in deciding what is and isn't news.  Hardly an editor or news director anywhere in the country lacks a subscription to the Gray Lady.  So, when the Times practiced omerta about the downsides of Obamacare for most people, the media followed its lead, quite willingly. [...] There are going to be a lot of people asking why the media didn't let them know what was in store for them with Obamacare.

The 'Duck' is all about the left being bored with Obama.  Let's look at this partial list of disappointments:
  1) GITMO is still open and it won't close anytime soon;
  2) The NSA program has really shaken up liberals;
  3) The "still in place Bush anti-terror policies" that they hated so much at "the yes we can" rally;
  4) Income inequality at a high level in the 5th year of "hope and change";
  5) Black unemployment is very bad under our first black president;
  6) The Iran deal under attack by Senate Democrats;
  7) Global warming not so warm; and,
  8) The Obama Care "roll out" has raised serious concerns about competence and the future of liberalism. [...] You can make a good case that the law is falling apart.
My point is that you will see a very aggressive left on same sex marriage, abortion, Voter ID cards, and the issues that create excitement with the base.  They need something to grab and "get pumped up about."  It already started with Charles Blow bringing racism into it.

Short Hills mall fatal shooting victim ID'd as Hoboken lawyer.  The fatal shooting of Dustin Friedland, 30, by two men after they rolled up on him and his wife in the parking deck on Sunday night is the latest — and deadliest — of the more than 400 carjackings reported in Essex County this year, officials said.

The Editor says...
This case has had extensive coverage in the news media, yet I have seen no description of the suspects in any report, except to say that police are looking for "two men."  Therefore it is safe to conclude that the police are looking for two black men; otherwise, the newspapers would make it clear that the suspects were white.  That's just the way the news media works.

Denver Post Stealth Edits Out 'Socialist' from Profile of Arapahoe School Shooter.  In a profile on the shooter in the Denver Post which focused on his "strong political beliefs," several of Pierson's classmates offered their impressions of the shooter.  One of the shooter's classmates described him as a "very opinionated socialist."  Shortly after that post was published, however, that description was edited out.  The current copy simply describes him as "very opinionated."

Tiny Vermont Gets $208 Million to Build Disastrous Obamacare Exchange; Where Are the Press Watchdogs?  In mid-November, Americans for Tax Reform compiled a list of federal spending on state Obamacare exchanges totaling a breathtaking $4.5 billion.  One number on the list stands out from the rest — and it's not California's, though its $910 million amout is awful, disproportionate, and surely highly wasteful (before considering scalability concerns, the fixed costs of building a web site should be close to the same regardless of a state's population).  The big eye-catcher is tiny Vermont's staggering $208 million.  The nation's second-least populous state (626,000 as of 2012) has 0.2 percent of the U.S. population, but has received 4.6 percent of grants from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Comrade Mandela's Secret Life.  The South African Communist Party is admitting Nelson Mandela was a high-ranking member.  Will the media report these facts?  Or will the "myth" continue to prevail?

Why Mandela's Communist Party membership is important:  On the day of Nelson Mandela's death the South African Communist Party chose to reveal a fact that it had long denied:  that he was a party member.  Indeed, at the time of his arrest he was on the Central Committee.

Did Obama know date of Mandela's death was June 26, 2013?  According to the read-by-millions Las Vegas Guardian Express, Mandela died on June 26th, 2013, but was kept on life support until December 2013.  On December 5, 2013, the White House tweeted a picture showing Obama behind the bars of the Robben Island prison, where Mandela had been incarcerated for 27 years.  The picture tweeted on Dec. 5, 2013 had been taken on June 29, 2013, when Barack and Michelle Obama visited the world famous site.  As president and first lady of the USA, the Obamas make pretty good vultures.

Nelson Mandela: What Were We Thinking?  On the morning of June 26, we received a message from one of our South African correspondents, Laura Oneale that Nelson Mandela had passed away the previous evening.  The news had come to her in the form of a text message from an acquaintance who was well-placed in the South African media.  It should be understood that this organization was not authorized to break the news.  Clearly, the South African government and the Mandela family had already decided that the news would not be made public.

The Knockout Game: What Took the Conservative Media so Long to Notice?  Evil flourishes when good men do nothing, and too many conservatives have been wobbly about recent racial violence trends. [...] In June of 2011, at least two people had been killed as a result of the sadistic, racially charged knockout game.  Since then, there have regularly been unprovoked attacks by black teens against non-black victims.  Now, finally, after a series of attacks against Jewish pedestrians in New York City, mainstream conservatives are discussing the knock-out game.  Fox News reports that the death toll from the "game" is now seven.

Knockdown games, bigoted receipts, and self-inflicted HIV.  [Scroll down]  In both cases, social media firestorms erupted over stories that inflamed certain passions and fulfilled certain expectations.  The narratives were too good to check.  But the press is suddenly very interested in "debunking" the Knockdown Game, building off a hysterical piece in Slate that alleges — based on nothing more than the deep-seated ideological convictions of the author — that the rash of random, racially-charged attacks can't possibly be happening.  This Knockdown Game knockdown has to be one of the most bizarre media obsessions ever.  It's an objective fact that the game is happening — even the "debunking" pieces admit it! — but they're trying to literally wish it out of existence, presumably because they don't like the commentary it's attracting from conservatives.

Media ignores Democratic infighting, abandonment of Obama.  At stake:  In the short term, the makeup of the Senate.  In the long term, much more:  The future of liberalism.  Obamacare (a term which, not surprisingly, the White House last week suddenly stopped using, opting for "Affordable Care Act"), is the pinnacle of liberalism.  The government will take over one-sixth of the U.S. economy and make all your decisions for you.  And don't worry:  your most personal information is safe with us (just ask the National Security Agency).

What ObamaCare Disaster? NBC Continues Blackout of Failing Health Care Law.  After going 72 hours without even mentioning ObamaCare on its air waves, NBC's continued refusal to cover the disastrous policy on Thursday's [11/21/2013] Nightly News or Friday's Today brought that total up to 96 hours.  Amazingly, Friday's Today had the audacity to include two segments about Vice President Joe Biden buying lunch at a Washington D.C. sandwich shop rather provide any ObamaCare updates.

Why Obama can't wave away this scandal.  Attorney General Eric Holder has survived three scandals that would have felled a Republican. His department attempted to soft-pedal its responsibility for the so-called "gunwalking" policy called Fast and Furious — which led to the murders of US border agents by Mexican drug-cartel members with guns effectively provided to the killers by the Justice Department.  He approved the secret surveillance of Fox News Channel reporter James Rosen in a leak investigation on the outrageous grounds that Rosen was a possible "co-conspirator" in an act of espionage.  And he approved similar tactics against reporters at the Associated Press in another leak investigation.  Holder's still there.  Obama defends him.  When was the last time you heard Rosen's name mentioned, or the AP story referenced, or Fast and Furious come up?

Ingraham Battles O'Reilly Guest Over Media Ignoring Racially-Charged 'Knockout Games'.  There is a disturbing trend now being noticed by a few news outlets this week called "knockout games."  These games supposedly involve young black men randomly attacking people on the street.  Laura Ingraham battled O'Reilly Factor guest Jasmyne Cannick on Thursday [11/21/2013] over the media's refusal to take on these racially-charged attacks in an honest way.

More about the knockout game.

Blackout: NBC Censors All Coverage of ObamaCare for Days.  NBC News has completely censored any mention of the unfolding ObamaCare disaster for the last 72 hours.  Not one word about the millions of Americans losing their health insurance nor the severe political damage that has been done to President Obama and the Democratic Party.  In that same time period, both CBS and ABC reported on major developments regarding the new law, including revelations that much of ObamaCare's infrastructure was still unfinished and that the administration knew of serious problems with the HealthCare.gov website as early as March.

CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC Primetime Ignore 'Knockout Game' .  The major television media are ignoring the "knockout game," a vicious assault perpetrated by young African-American males against Jews and whites across the nation.  In the assaults, unsuspecting pedestrians are punched violently in the head so that the black youths can prance around exhilarated about their successful "knockout."  Many concussions and even deaths have been attributed to this "game," but networks such as ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and MSNBC have studiously ignored the issue, according to TruthRevolt.

Might the Establishment Turn Against Obama?.  Communist childhood mentors?  Don't go there.  Boasting in print about his university penchant for Marxism and his heavy drug use?  Well, all students are "idealists" and "party-goers."  Explicit statements declaring fully socialized medicine his long-term goal?  Surely he's learned now that Washington is about compromise.  Long personal, professional, and political association with Bill Ayers — terrorist, avowed communist revolutionary, advocate of Marxist re-education camps, and education "reformer"?  But he says Ayers was just a guy from his neighborhood, and his word should be good enough for us.  Refusing to release his school records?  So what? — the man has a Harvard law degree.

ABC, CBS Notice Obama's 'Lowest Ever' Approval Rating; NBC Out to Lunch.  On Tuesday, ABC's World News and CBS Evening News both reported the latest poll numbers from the "respected" Quinnipiac University, as CBS's Scott Pelley labeled the institution, regarding President Obama's "lowest ever" approval rating, along with Americans' dim view of the politician's honesty.  ABC's Diane Sawyer noted that "for the first time in his presidency, a majority of American voters — 52 percent...say President Obama is not honest and trustworthy."

Byron York: Sympathetic Journalists All Knew Cancellations [were] Coming.  In a Friday editorial mainly taking aim at President Obama and Democrat lawmakers, The Washington Examiner's Byron York argues that the wave of millions of insurance cancellations were in fact not a surprise for many who are now claiming it was.  They knew, knowingly lied and they were not the only ones.  York points out that "sympathetic journalists" also knew what was coming and remained silent.

New York Times' Obama cheerleading harms the nation.  The ObamaCare debacle is the exception that proves the rule.  Wall-to-wall complaints are forcing the media to report that the law's Web site is a lemon and that its rules are causing millions of people to lose insurance plans they liked.  The mainstream media is acting only because the story is too big to ignore.

Virginia Duo Hooked Up 300 Illegal Immigrants with Photo ID; WashPost Buries Story on B8.  A former DMV clerk, Maria Cavallaro, and her accomplice, Jose Calderon, pleaded guilty in federal court yesterday to helping roughly 300 individuals "most of them illegal immigrants" to obtain Virginia-issued "driver's licenses, learner's permits and identification cards for those... [who] were not eligible for them," Washington Post staffer Matt Zapotosky reported in the November 7 paper.  Suffice it to say, such a pervasive criminal conspiracy merits prime real estate in a major metropolitan newspaper, but Post editors seem to disagree, placing the 14-paragraph story on page B8 of Thursday's [11/7/2013] paper, the very back page of the Metro section.

NBC hides its bombshell that Obama knew millions would lose health insurance.  An NBC investigative internet story that has upended the administration's oft-repeated promise that Americans will be able to keep their health care plan under Obamacare was largely ignored on the network's premier TV shows, NBC Nightly News and Today, according to a media watchdog group.

NBC News Deletes Huge Obamacare Story, Stealth Edits, Breaks Drudge Link.  On Monday [10/28/2013], NBC News reported that President Obama's administration knew for three years that Americans would lose their current insurance under Obamacare.  The story quickly became the lead at the Drudge Report, making it the hottest political story on the Internet immediately.  For several hours, there was no problem.  Then, late at night, the story was pulled, the link was changed thereby breaking the Drudge link, and stealth edits were made to the piece.  In particular, one key paragraph met the cutting room floor.

Where was the media when "open secret" of ObamaCare problems arose?  Where does one go to get some objective reporting on public policy?  One unmentioned aspect of the "sticker shock" and "exchange collapse" stories, which the media now reports well, is that these problems were readily apparent before October 1, too — as the NYT admits in the second half of its Friday [10/25/2013] article.

The Editor says...
The "mainstream" news media only began to "report" Obamacare's flaws after the whole world was aware of them.

Questions Rarely Asked — and Never Answered.  Is there still a notion of scandal? If EPA director Lisa Jackson's fake email con and the Pigford payouts were small beer, what were the scandals about Benghazi, the IRS, the AP, and the NSA?  Does anyone care that every presidential pronouncement about the Affordable Care Act was false?  We have reached a new point where either the media is an appendage of government, or the public is too weary to care about the conduct of its government — to the degree that this administration could do pretty much anything. [...] How did Barack Obama become the most anti-civil liberties president in history — to almost complete silence?

60 Minutes: Benghazi Revelations of Betrayal, No Mention of Hillary, Obama.  In the whole segment, which established damning evidence that the U.S. had evidence that an attack on the annex where Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed was clearly in the works, [Lara] Logan never once mentions the names of Hillary Clinton of Barack Obama.  Unsurprising that a featured player in the MSM should not report on the truly lethal evidence that could have sunk Obama's 2012 campaign until almost one year after his reelection.

Early Skirmishes in a Race War.  Initial skirmishes in that race war have already begun, and have in fact been going on for some years.  But public officials pretend that it is not happening, and the mainstream media seldom publish it at all, except in ways that conceal what is really taking place. [...] More dangerous than these highly publicized episodes over the years are innumerable organized and unprovoked physical attacks on whites by young black gangs in shopping malls, on beaches, and in other public places all across the country today.  While some of these attacks make it into the media as isolated incidents, the nationwide pattern of organized black-on-white attacks by thugs remains invisible in the mainstream media, with the notable exception of Bill O'Reilly on the Fox News Channel.

Ted Cruz Spots a Tsunami.  One doesn't need to recall simple math or economics lessons from school to hear and recognize the ugly sucking sound emanating from our nation's 17-plus trillion dollar debt clock.  But most cover their ears with soothing opinion polls (likely answered by people who flunked both subjects) and would rather know President Obama's answer to tough questions, such as what he thinks is the coolest thing about his job.

Poynter Offers Media Guide to Gloss Over Millions of ObamaCare's Victims.  Because the media are as desperate as Obama to see ObamaCare succeed, the faulty federal website is getting all kinds of attention.  One thing that isn't, though, is that millions among the working and middle class are losing insurance they are happy with and seeing their monthly premiums spike, sometimes by as much as 150%.

Top Five ObamaCare Catastrophes the Media Refuse to Cover.  While the media's coverage of the rolling disaster that is the ObamaCare launch is both welcome and appropriate, what the media will not cover is what is now and is always going to be the real ObamaCare disaster:  the economic chaos ObamaCare is forcing millions upon millions of everyday Americans to needlessly pay for and deal with.  And the people callously being thrown into this maelstrom aren't The Wealthy, aren't Mitt Romney, aren't the Top 1%, aren't even Tea Partiers — they are the very people Obama repeatedly promised could keep their insurance and that he would never tax:  the working poor and the middle class.

President Obama's Attack On The First Amendment.  Truth is, the unions and black caucus will never turn their backs on this president and the media will continue to pronounce the scandals surrounding Benghazi, the IRS, Fast and Furious, intelligence leaks and the NSA as "phony" and ignore the administration's incoherent foreign policy and diplomatic failures.  No one wants a government shutdown, but the principles behind this one are worth fighting for.  The shutdown challenges Obama's reckless policies and brings to light the real danger they pose, something the media refuse to do.

Obama's military contempt: The outrageous treatment of Clint Lorance.  Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance, a 28-year-old combat leader in the 82d Airborne Division from Celeste, Texas was recently found guilty of two counts of murder in Afghanistan and sentenced to 20 years in Ft. Leavenworth.  The story of First Lieutenant Lorance has not been covered by a single major media source.

Majority Think Obama Is Putting His Agenda Ahead of What's Good for the Country, Media Mum.  The Obama-loving media couldn't wait to report findings from an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll concerning how the public are giving far more blame for the government shutdown to Republicans than the President.  What they chose not to report was that 51 percent of respondents in the very same poll said of Barack Obama, "He is putting his own political agenda ahead of what's good for the country".

Memo details terrorist's 'dry run' aboard flight last month.  We've been hearing these reports for years, but this appears to be the real deal.  On a flight from Washington to Orlando last month, several Middle Eastern men caused what was termed a commotion and "appeared to be conducting a test run to gauge procedure and reaction to an in-flight threat during an incident aboard US Airways Flight 1880 from Reagan National Airport to Orlando International Airport on Sept. 2," according to Fox News.

Pilots union warns of 'dry run' by possible terrorists on US flight.  Security experts for a major airline's pilot's union have warned members that potential terrorists conducted apparent "dry runs" aboard domestic flights in recent weeks, and urged flight crews not to be pressured into taking to the skies if they are fearful.  A memo from the U.S. Airline Pilots Association, which represents more than 5,000 pilots who fly for US Airways, cites "several cases recently throughout the (airline) industry of what appear to be probes, or dry runs, to test our procedures and reaction to an in-flight threat."

Unbelievable: Obama gets no questions at presser on ObamaCare rollout or shutdown theater.  It ran for one hour and six minutes, with 12 different reporters being called on — although, notably, not Ed Henry of Fox News — and between them they couldn't muster one question about the catastrophe that is Healthcare.gov or the spectacle of National Park Rangers locking senior-citizen tourists out of war memorials and/or inside their hotels.

ABC, NBC, CBS Nightly Newscasts Ignore Amnesty Rally.  On Tuesday [10/8/2013], not one word about the immigration rally on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. was mentioned on the nightly newscasts for NBC, CBS, or ABC.  Americans watching the nightly newscasts would not have known that such a rally ever happened during the government shutdown.

LA Times: We Don't Publish Letters to Editor Claiming Man Isn't Causing Climate Change.  It's one thing for a news outlet to advance the as yet unproven theory of anthropogenic global warming; it's quite another to admit that you won't publish views that oppose it.  As amazing as it may same, that's exactly what the Los Angeles Times did Saturday [10/5/2013] in an article by editorial writer Jon Healey.

FBI raids on homes in Texas, Michigan remain a mystery.  Federal officials on Monday remained silent on why they raided homes in Texas and Michigan this weekend that property records indicate are owned in part by a Houston art appraiser.

The Editor says...
I find it hard to believe there's a valid reason for all the secrecy about what they were looking for, or what they found.  My guess, based on the treatment of Gibson Guitar, is that the "art appraiser" said or did something Barack H. Obama didn't like.

Dangerous Times: The Crisis-Monger.  The Center for Policy Studies has now exposed secret money streams from the Muslim Brotherhood to the Democrats.  That hidden flow of cash explains everything that made no sense before, going back to 9/11/01.  The MBs run layers of shell corporations to hide money for the Democrats from the IRS — which isn't looking very hard.  The Clinton Center is one major conduit.  The Obama campaign is another.

CNN Does Twelve Minute Interview With Susan Rice Without Mentioning Benghazi.  It goes without saying that the reason Susan Rice was scrapped from consideration to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State last year was due to the claims she made on numerous television programs the Sunday after our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was attacked.  Despite this, when CNN's Fareed Zakaria did a twelve minute interview with Rice Sunday [9/29/2013], he didn't mention Benghazi at all.

The Editor says...
I suspect and surmise that Ms. Rice probably consented to the interview upon the condition that no Benghazi questions were to be asked.

'Islam,' 'Muslim' censored from newspaper reports on Kenya, Pakistan attacks.  In Nairobi, Kenya last weekend, Islamist militants took over a high-end shopping mall and began executing non-Muslims.  In Pakistan, Islamist suicide bombers detonated at a Christian Church on Sunday.  Yet on Monday, September 23, 90 percent of the top ten (via circulation numbers) daily newspapers' headlines in the United States censored the words "Islam" and Muslim" from Nairobi and Pakistan reports.  One — the New York Daily News — didn't even have a headline for the latest Islamic terrorist attacks.  That's journalism at its finest.

Media Almost Totally Ignore Book Claiming Matthew Shepard Murder Wasn't a Hate Crime.  The 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard is considered one of the nation's most notorious hate crimes.  Yet when a new book comes out by a gay author contending that Shepard was not killed because of his sexual orientation, America's media appear disinterested in reporting the new revelations.

How to Report on Racial Violence: Don't.  [Scroll down]  One hour after I read [Abe] Aamidor's piece, I came across a tweet about one of the more popular euphemisms for black mob violence:  Large fights.  This one in Indianapolis, involving 80 people with baseball bats and other weapons.  Everyone was black.  The next day, the Indy Star dutifully reported some of the details of the riot.  Everything except the race.  The paper also dutifully reported that this kind of large scale violence had happened twice before in the last year.  And dutifully gave some details.  Except the race.

An unanswered question in the Navy Yard mass murder.  In a post yesterday, Aleister noted how quickly the media dropped any interest in the politics of the Navy Yard shooter — as soon as it became clear that the was a mentally-ill liberal black man, not a conservative/Tea Party/right-wing white guy. [...] The same phenomenon took place as to the Family Research Council shooter, motivated by a Southern Poverty Law Center hate watch list.  Almost complete media disinterest, including in the sentencing this week.

Why Has The Media Stopped Talking About The Navy Yard Shooter?  The media typically loves stories about people who go on shooting sprees but just a few days after the Navy Yard shooting story broke, no one in the media is talking about it anymore.  Why?  The answer is pretty simple.  The story didn't fit the media's preferred gun control narrative.  Had the story been about a white Tea Party member as everyone in the liberal media was hoping, we'd still be bombarded with coverage of the story.  Black guy?  Liberal?  Mentally ill?  The story no longer served any purpose for the left's agenda so it was dropped.

Networks That Touted Tom DeLay's 2010 Conviction Silent About His Complete Vindication.  Back in 2010, when ex-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was convicted on money laundering charges related to campaign fundraising, all three network morning and evening news shows made sure to tell their viewers.  But Thursday night and Friday morning, after an appeals court overturned that verdict and completely acquitted DeLay of those charges, none of the broadcast networks bothered to even mentioned the former Republican leader's exoneration.

Term you will not hear about Atlanta kidnapping perp: Illegal Alien.  The Associated Press and numerous other media outlets have banned the terms "illegal alien" or "illegal immigrant" after a relentless campaign by immigration activists who illogically claimed the terms were racist, and who want to soften the reality of crime committed by people in the country illegally.  The recent kidnapping and rescue of a teenager in Atlanta demonstrates how the media is wording around the term, and diminishing the facts by making it unclear if the perpetrator was in the country illegally.

Obama, Spiked For His Own Good?  President Obama barely noticed, but there was a horrific mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday. [...] It was tasteless, inappropriate, and diminishing of the presidency.  ABC, CBS, and NBC skipped over Obama's refusal to let breaking news of a gun massacre deter conservative-bashing remarks.  These were the same networks that went absolutely bonkers when Romney made what they saw as inappropriate political comments on the heels of the Benghazi attacks.

Press Buries Black-on-Hispanic Hit while Killer Hires Trayvon Martin Lawyer.  On September 12, Miami-Dade police arrested a 17-year-old black teenager, Jamal Jackson, for the August 21 execution-style murder of Hispanic-American Miguel Pilotos.  The black-on-Hispanic killing in Opa-Locka, Florida didn't get much press when it happened.  Only after the suspect was arrested three weeks later did various news outlets release more details of the crime.

Is there a con man in the Oval Office?  The media headlines should be about ObamaCare — a fast moving train wreck about to destroy the entire U.S. economy.  It's so bad that Congress exempted themselves a month ago.  It's so bad that union leaders met with Obama at the White House to demand they all be exempted, or ObamaCare be repealed.  Yes, unions are asking for the repeal of ObamaCare, the signature achievement of the man they elected President.  Shouldn't this story be in the headlines?

Is your 401K about to be nationalized?  The $19.4 trillion sitting in personal retirement accounts like the 401K may be too tempting an apple for a government that is quite broke, both monetarily and morally.  The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau director Richard Cordray recently mentioned these accounts in a recent interview, stating "That's one of the things we've been exploring and are interested in, in terms of whether and what authority we have."

What John Adams Foretold Has Come True.  [Scroll down]  What's next?  Confiscation!  "The Obama administration is reportedly moving on plans to nationalize private 401k and IRA retirement accounts, and replace them with government sponsored annuities (aka Treasury bonds that the Treasury currently can't sell to anyone but the Fed)."  Obama has begun a plan to nationalize (aka confiscate) private pensions and to eliminate private retirement accounts, including IRAs and 401k plans.  Think it can't happen here?  Think again!

The new CBO debt study is way worse than the media is telling you.  [Scroll down]  So over the next 25 years, Americans will be taxed more to pay for a federal government that will more purely become a redistribution, wealth-transfer mechanism.  Taxes and spending at record highs.  America as a nuclear-armed insurance company.  But here's the thing:  that forecast, as the CBO notes, does not factor in "the harm that growing debt would cause to the economy."  Hey, that would be a good thing to know, right?  Well, you have to dig deeper into the CBO study to find those numbers.  And when you take into account stuff like how deficits might "crowd out" investment in factories and computers and how people might respond to changes in after-tax wages, you find the debt is much, much larger, closer to 200% of GDP.
[Emphasis in original.]

Ty Woods dead body left on Benghazi tarmac for three hours.  According to Charles Woods on Huckabee, Ty Woods' body was left on the tarmac for three hours and there wasn't even an American plane sent to rescue or even take his body home.  As usual, the rest of the media will never report this disgusting fact.

Lois Lerner + Malik Obama = White House IRS Scandal.  Whenever the subject of Malik Obama's ties to the government of Sudan comes up — via his role as Executive Secretary of the Islamic Da'wa Organization (Muslim Brotherhood) — there are always detractors who say it's guilt by association.  Just because the President's half-brother works for a terrorist regime doesn't mean the President is guilty, they say, before attempting to move on.  Not so fast.

Everything you need to know about LADEE, the thing NASA just sent to the moon.  It's the first spacecraft designed and built by NASA's Ames Research Center and the first spacecraft to use a modular body.  It's 7.7 feet high, 4.74 feet deep and wide, and powered by a bunch of solar cells mounted on the body.

The Editor says...
The article goes on and on and on about the technical specifications of the satellite, and indeed, tells you "everything you need to know" about it — except the cost.  Apparently the Washington Post writer believes you don't "need to know" that.  Once again NASA, with nothing else to do, is flying around in circles, but this time the circles will be around the moon.

How the Big Three Networks Have Censored or Spun Obama's Deadly Foreign Policy Failure:
Benghazi Blackout.  Wednesday marks the one year anniversary of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi that left Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead and sent the Obama administration scrambling for a cover story that the Big Three broadcast networks initially bought and were slow to unravel.  A similar pattern has emerged in 2013.  As new information about the administration's actions before and after the attacks have been revealed through congressional testimony, whistleblowers, and eyewitnesses, the Big Three have responded by censoring, breezing past or spinning politically damaging bombshells.

Not National Establishment Press News: Longshoremens Union Leaves AFL-CIO Over Obamacare, Other Disagreements.  The AFL-CIO has just lost 40,000 of its most militant members, and it's not news at the Associated Press's national site (there is a regional AP story at the Seattle Times) or at the New York Times.  It is getting virtually no other establishment press coverage.

CBS Highlights Benghazi Anniversary; Fails to Mention Obama and Hillary By Name.  Tuesday's [9/3/2013] CBS This Morning spotlighted the upcoming one-year anniversary of the Islamist attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya, but whitewashed the role of President Obama and his administration, including that of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Black Mob Violence in the Liberal City of Portland.  Portland is in the middle of a nasty bout of black mob violence.  This time directed at bicyclists.  But Tim Oberlander does not want us to know. [...] Oberlander is a news editor at KGW TV in Portland.  His city is under attack from black mob violence centered around Martin Luther King Boulevard.  This mob has been attacking bike riders, housewives, students, seniors, you name it.  These attacks are part of a long — but quiet — history of racial violence in a liberal enclave that prides itself on racial tolerance and harmony.  But you would never know it from Oberlander.

Why are major media outlets ignoring bestselling writer Mark R. Levin?  To read the book reviews in The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post or The Boston Globe, you might be unaware of the existence of the work of Mark Levin.  Unless you skip to the page with the bestseller lists.

ABC, CBS and NBC Overlook Obama's Gaffe-tastic Performance on Leno.  Barack Obama delivered one gaffe after another in his August 6 interview with Jay Leno, but the networks that usually mock every mistake or slip of the tongue made by Republicans ignored the President's verbal mishaps.

More Questions ABC-NBC-CBS-CNN-PBS-NPR-AP-NYT-LAT Won't Ask.  [Scroll down]  But in a really low blow, Matthew Continetti wrote a column pointing out that America's elite scribblers had an extended audience with the leader of the free world and didn't ask a single question about, oh, say, Edward Snowden, Lois Lerner, James Rosen, Mohamed Morsi, Bashar Assad, Nouri al-Maliki, Vladimir Putin, Hasan Rouhani, and Hamid Karzai.  Not even about Eliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner, or Bob Filner.

Murder and Double Standards.  Few Americans outside of Knoxville, Tenn., know about the case of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, two young people who were kidnapped, savagely assaulted, raped, and murdered by people of a different race.  If Christian and Newsom had been black, and they had been raped, tortured, and murdered by a group of white people, the victims' names would be painfully seared into the national psyche by the media's saturation coverage of the atrocities and their aftermath.

Media Can't Ignore New Developments In IRS Scandal.  From stonewalling Congress to Federal Election Commission collusion to harassment of already-tax-exempt conservative groups, the IRS scandal metastasizes.  Someone high-up was clearly giving orders.

Censored! IRS Scandal Being Buried by Big Three Networks.  The Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks have colluded with the Obama administration to censor the latest IRS scandal news.  The following is a list of key developments in the IRS scandal and how many days it has been since they were discussed, if at all, by the Big Three on their morning and evening news shows.

Four Things the Media Aren't Telling You About Today's GDP Numbers.  [#4] Reagan also inherited a dead economy and we roared out of that recession — One of the bald-faced lies told by Democrats and their media is that Obama inherited the worst economy since the Great Depression.  This rhetorical trick is used to excuse Obama's dismal "recovery."  The truth is that when Reagan assumed office in 1981, the economy he inherited was in many ways worse.

President Obama calls the United States and Europe 'developing countries'.  You can imagine the derision that would have flowed from the liberal "mainstream media" if George W. Bush had referred to the United States as well as its European allies as "developing countries."  This is exactly the term he used in an interview with The New York Times, which has just been published. [...] As we've seen on a number of previous occasions, Barack Obama clearly struggles with his words when he is without his beloved teleprompter.

WaPo Buries Lede On Zimmerman Juror: She Called Trial A 'Publicity Stunt'.  The headline of the July 25 piece blares what the left-wing commentators have been screaming for days:  "Zimmerman got away with murder."  It's juicy.  It's eye-catching, but it paints a two-dimensional portrait of how the juror, who calls herself Maddy, feels about the case.  In fact, Maddy, a mother of eight of Puerto Rican heritage — bursting once and for all the "all-white jury" meme in the liberal media — said in a televised interview that she thought the trial was a "publicity stunt," and probably shouldn't have been convened the first place.

Omission Watch: Networks Skip Clip of Obama Boasting Reporters Say He Has 'Good Ideas' That 'Sound Great'.  One snippet of Obama's speech in Galesburg, Illinois is getting left out of the TV news packages for perhaps obvious reasons.  Obama announced yesterday that reporters are with him in thinking his socialist plans are "good ideas" and "sound great," but Republicans will never back them.  This might also make it sound like there's zero overlap between "reporters" and "Republicans."

Why Won't the Media Cover Huma Abedin's Ties to the Global Jihad Movement?  [Scroll down]  The journal that Huma worked for — which promotes Islamic supremacism and was founded by al-Qaida financer Naseef, who also headed the Muslim World League, a leading Muslim Brotherhood organization — is called the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs.  It was edited first by Huma's father, Syed Abedin, and now by her mother, Saleha Abedin.  Saleha is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood.

Zimmerman Lawyer: Trayvon Had Recipe For "Poor Man's Ecstasy".  "If you do a Google Search for 'Purple Lean' or 'lean drink' or 'lean drank' it is sort of an urban kind of drug.  It's known in some circles as poor man's ecstasy or something like that," George Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax.  "The main ingredients are watermelon, Arizona watermelon juice, a hard candy ... for sweetness, and then some type of either codeine tablets if you can get them or Coricidin D, Robitussin DM," he explained.

WashPost Downplays D.C. Vandalism Story Starring Son of CBS Radio Boss.  The Washington Post knows how to downplay scandalous news when it's about the children of other D.C. journalists.

Journalist calls out his newspaper's coverage of IRS scandals.  We live in a time of extraordinary media corruption when testimony late last week tying a presidential political appointee to the IRS' suppression of the president's political opposition was widely ignored, except for Fox News and the conservative talk radio and internet ghetto.  But at least one brave journalist in the MSM is speaking up about the disgraceful suppression of an important story of political corruption of the highest order.  Mike Hashimoto, an editorial writer of the Dallas News, is bothered by this media corruption.  He posted a blog Friday, calling out his employer and AP.

IRS scandal creeps closer to White House.  You remember the IRS scandal, right?  If [Carter] Hull did testify, and I have no reason to think he didn't, isn't that news?  Hasn't one of the big questions of the improper, if not illegal, IRS scrutiny been whether this program was designed and directed from someplace other than the much-maligned Cincinnati office?

Black mob shoots Hispanics in Brooklyn.  It started out Friday with teasing, then taunting.  But when the young Hispanic woman behind the counter told the black man and his friends she did not want to go out with them, it escalated into assault.  Then gunshots.  All at the same time as, a few miles away, Al Sharpton and Beyonce were railing against racial injustice directed at black men.  We don't know the names of these alleged would-be killers.  Not yet.  Nor would we have a description of the mob if we had to rely on the New York Post or Daily News.

Trayvon's Tragedy: Exploited in Death.  [Scroll down]  On March 27, 2008, two black teenagers with a third positioned on the street in a getaway car tried to force 19-year-old art student Tyler Binstead and his girlfriend into the trunk of her car after robbing them at gunpoint. [...] The black-on-white killing in Richmond never hit the mainstream news.

Muslim "Youth" looting the dead at French Rail Crash.  This is the second unexplained train crash in as many weeks.  More bodies are still being recovered in a mysterious Quebec train disaster in Canada.  In this latest disaster in France, French Atlas readers tell me that Muslim "youths" were looting corpses at the train crash site.  Most media neglected this monstrous bit of news; The Daily Telegraph makes a brief mention of the ghouls, referring to the Muslims as, ahem, "local people."

'Trayvonned'.  The media is silent on what compelled the attackers, but what is known is that Joshua [Chellow] was set upon and mercilessly beaten in a life-threatening attack by a group of four "unarmed" black males. [...] Did any of you know about this attack?  No.  Because the media reported it as a "hit and run fatality" while deliberately refusing to discuss the events the preceded the fatal "hit and run".

Salute to the Treepers.  If you've never heard of the Treepers, that's because the media have studiously ignored the best journalism done on the Zimmerman trial.  The moniker denotes a group of bloggers posting at The Conservative Treehouse whose painstaking research uncovered a conspiracy by "elements within the SPD and the Miami-Dade School District Police Department... [who] conspired to keep Martin's criminal history buried," in the words of Jack Cashill, the premier investigative journalist working the Trayvon Martin story.

MSM protecting Hillary from scandal taint.  A former member of then- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's protective detail has been sentenced to a year in prison, extending the strong of scandals that have engulfed the agency since Mrs. Clinton's tenure began.  The diplomat had faced a possible 7 year term, but pleaded guilty, sparing the expense and delay of a trial and perhaps shortening his sentence.

NAACP Blackballs Borelli and Bryant.  The NAACP is blackballing black conservatives.  Specifically, two black conservatives:  Deneen Borelli and the Reverend C. L. Bryant.  You missed this?  Considering the state of the liberal media these days, one shouldn't be surprised.

If a Republican were in the White House, the nightly news would comprise this:
Obama's Climate Change Plan Telegraphs Desperation, Disconnect.  His poll numbers are plummeting, and his grand speech at the Brandenburg Gate last week had a 95% drop off in attendance.  Russia and China are laughing at him over the NSA leaker.  He's under siege for abuse of power and McCarthy-style tactics to intimidate both the press and conservative groups.  The majority of Americans now oppose the forthcoming implementation of his signature legislative proposal, Obamacare.  He's fresh off a G8 conference where he insulted Catholics and all people of faith by calling parochial education divisive and an impediment to peace.  He's about to embark on a whirlwind Africa trip that will cost upwards of $100 million while agencies deal with Sequester cuts.  His Attorney General was just caught lying to Congress.  Perhaps most importantly, "hope and change" still hasn't come to the more than 21 million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed.

Are there any reporters left in Milwaukee?  Every year, Juneteenth in Milwaukee is a mess:  Lots of violence.  Lots of people arrested at this annual festival of black liberation. [...] Something happened at Juneteenth in Milwaukee a few days ago but not one local reporter is talking about it.

The Editor says...
The news media are afraid to report anything that reflects badly on blacks, such as the following...

Bike trail builds reputation for mob attacks.  The titans at the Washington Post cannot get their journalistic minds around the latest case of black mob violence in the nation's capital.  They reported the crime but ignored the race and the pattern.  But the Titan of Trinidad, a neighborhood blog, had no trouble describing what really happened when a black mob attacked a D.C. commuter on a bicycle, sending him to the hospital with broken bones in his face.

More black mob violence on bike trails — media oblivious.  Just finished an article for WND and my book about a rash of black mob violence on a D.C. bike trail:  Bike trail builds reputation for mob attacks.  Then the cards and letters started rolling in with reports of dozens and dozens more attacks from black mobs on bike trails around the country over the last few years.

Networks Ignore 'Audit the IRS' Rally; Minimize Coverage of $70 Million in IRS Bonuses.  The Big Three all punted on covering the Capitol Hill "Audit the IRS" rally on their Wednesday evening and Thursday morning newscasts. [...] The CBS morning show also stood out for spotlighting how the "IRS is under fire again... it's paying $70 million in employee bonuses, despite a White House order."  CBS This Morning devoted 47 seconds of coverage to this latest IRS controversy, while ABC and NBC ignored the development.

Not News at AP: Connecticut Legislative District Goes GOP For First Time in 40 Years.  A GOP candidate for the Connecticut State Legislature's 53rd District about 70 miles northeast of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown won election on Tuesday [6/11/2013], marking the first time the seat has gone to a Republican since Richard Nixon was president.

Poof! Media drop coverage of IRS scandal.  That was fast — but not unexpected.  The media frenzy over the IRS scandal, which dominated the Big Three networks for two weeks, has practically disappeared from the news, according to a new report.  The dominant story in May when ABC, CBS and NBC crawled over each other for new details and provided 96 stories on morning and evening broadcasts has fallen to just one this week on ABC's Good Morning America, according to the Media Research Center.  In some cases, it was replaced by the National Security Agency snooping scandal.

Washington Post Plays 'Hide the Benghazi' In Its Front-page Susan Rice Promotion Story.  Apparently, the Post thinks American values include shameless lying on TV news shows.

Story Ideas for a Press Turning Against Obama.  Last week the Associated Press ran an astonishing story about how America's windmills have been killing thousands of rare birds, including golden eagles, while getting a free pass from the Obama administration. [...] How did the mainstream press manage to ignore this story for four years?  And did its final emergence have something to do with the discovery that the administration had been reading the AP's phone records?

The IRS attempts to save Obamacare by unilaterally declaring that it will disregard the law.
An IRS Scandal Inseparable from Obamacare.  Thanks to ubiquitous if imperfectly honest press coverage, most Americans know about the IRS scandal involving tax-exempt applications from various Tea Party groups.  The public is still, however, getting the mushroom treatment on two other outrages by that rogue agency.  The media have devoted scant coverage to its theft of 60 million medical records, now the subject of a class action lawsuit, and they have been all but silent regarding the illegal IRS scheme to fund Obamacare's federal insurance exchanges.

As Stockholm Riots Move Into Fifth Day, Press Aversion to the M-Word Is Nearly Unanimous.  A Google News search on "Sweden riots" done tonight [5/24/2013] at 10 PM ET (not in quotes, sorted by date, with duplicates) returned 314 items.  Adding the word "Muslim" to the search reduced the number of results to nine.  Fewer than a handful are from establishment press outlets, and one of those only appeared in the search results because a commenter and not the story's writer used the M-word.  That pretty much tells you all you need to know about the determined denial of reality in which the worldwide press is engaged in reporting riots in the suburbs of Stockholm, which have entered their fifth day.

Fox Gives 15 Minutes to Latest IRS Scandals Details; ABC, NBC, and CBS Ignore [it].  There have been a number of new revelations this week in the ever expanding scope of the IRS scandal.  However, even with so many developments in the investigation of this egregious scandal, there was extremely limited coverage of the unfolding of this affair in the morning news of many more liberal stations like ABC, NBC, and CBS.  In contrast, Fox News devoted almost 15 minutes in their programming on Thursday morning's [5/23/2013] Fox & Friends show to enlighten the public of all of the new information in the scandal.

Three Labor Unions, Including Teamsters, Want ObamaCare Repealed.  As the media, by and large, ignores the train wreck that is on the horizon with ObamaCare, yet another union has jumped ship on the president's health care overhaul.  Back in April, you may recall, the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers, and Allied Workers officially said thanks but no thanks to the president's plan.  Well, now, a major labor union in the grocery industry is balking at the policy.

How much news has the Obama administration successfully suppressed?  During his first term, liberal journalists often remarked at how "scandal free" the administration was, despite Solyndra, Fast and Furious and other revelations.  But maybe what really happened is that the administration's concerted effort to suppress the reporting of news was actually quite successful.

WashPost Reports Obama DOJ Also Spied on James Rosen of Fox News.  The Washington Post on Monday [5/20/2013] reported that Obama's Department of Justice was investigating journalists before they started wiretapping the Associated Press — for one, Fox News correspondent James Rosen in 2010.  Their headline wasn't "Obama Team Also Spied on Fox News."  Fox wasn't in the headline, on A-1 or on A-12, where the story continued.

Note praising Allah didn't float PC boat.  Finally, we get the note in the boat — a month late.  Do you how much media effort has been devoted to unearthing what Dzhokhar Tsarnaev apparently thought was his last will and testament?  But somehow, the cops held it tight until yesterday [5/16/2013].  Unconfirmed stories have circulated that in Dave Henneberry's backyard in Watertown that Friday evening, the feds went so far as to check out the cellphones of the local cops, to make sure no one had snapped a photo of the note in the boat.

CBS' Attkisson: 'There Hasn't Been an Appetite for the Stories I've Offered on Benghazi'.  CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has been one of the more aggressive reporters covering the aftermath of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi last September.  But the veteran CBS News reporter feels the story's she's pitched lately are getting picked up on the TV network.

AP Phone Records Furor Breaks 335 Days of Silence on Obama Leak Scandal.  The media furor that began Monday night over the Justice Department obtaining two months of phone records from the Associated Press marks the first time in 335 days that any of the Big Three evening newscasts have even mentioned the existence of two criminal investigations into whether White House or other national security officials leaked sensitive secrets, perhaps to politically benefit Barack Obama's re-election campaign.

Finally: 56 Days Later, ABC Ends Blackout and Covers Gosnell 'House of Horrors'.  Fifty six days after the grisly trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell began, ABC broke its self-imposed blackout and finally offered coverage. [...] Terry Moran explained, "For two months, jurors heard often shocking, grisly testimony."  He described the details as a "house of horrors."  A house of horrors that ABC took 56 days to notice.

Report: NBC Spiked Story ID'ing Benghazi Whistleblower as Obama/Clinton Voter.  Victoria Toensing, attorney for Benghazi whistleblower Gregory Hicks, says Hicks is a Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton during the 2008 primaries, and President Obama twice for President.  Toensing also said that NBC News "spiked" the story this week, prior to Hicks' dramatic testimony before Congress.

Benghazi Whistleblower's Attorney Claims NBC Spiked Him Being a Democrat Who Voted for Obama.  If you were a journalist reporting on Benghazi whistleblower Gregory Hicks, wouldn't you find it interesting that he was a Democrat who voted for Barack Obama twice?

Benghazi hearings in the Mirror Universe.  It's amazing to watch the media bury yesterday's explosive testimony on Benghazi.  Just imagine for a moment that today is the day after a veteran career diplomat — the top man on the ground in Libya after the murder of the ambassador — testified that a Republican administration told him not to cooperate with Democrat congressional investigators, shook him up with a menacing phone call from the top political "fixer" for a Secretary of State widely viewed as a leading 2016 presidential candidate, demoted him under cloudy circumstances so they could portray him as "disgruntled"... and then spent eight months loudly boasting of their enthusiastic, transparent cooperation with Congress.

MSNBC Viewers Discover Benghazi... for the First Time.  For the professional left, this story on Morning Joe is a double disaster.  In the short term it forces the MSMBC audience to confront the possibility that their heroes President Obama and Hillary Clinton left Americans to die in Benghazi and lied about it for political reasons.  It gives a story they have been able to dismiss MSM credibility, that's bad.  In the long term it raises the possibility that there is another story beyond the wall of silence.  That there is a whole world of news they might be missing.  What happens if those viewers decide they want to see more.

Why Is the Attempted Firebombing of a Mormon Church Not National News?  We blame the leftwing climate of hate.  Be assured if someone tossed a Molotov cocktail at a mosque it would be a major story.

Molotov cocktail thrown into Ogden church.  A failed Molotov cocktail thrown through a window at an LDS church sometime Sunday night has sparked a joint investigation. [...] The remains of the cocktail, which caused about $1,000 damage to the church's kitchen, was discovered by maintenance personnel who went to the church about 7:30 a.m. Monday [5/6/2013], said Eric Bauman, Ogden Fire Department deputy chief.

Destroying our country, our military and our very existence.  How many Americans have heard of Extortion 17?  Extortion 17 was the call sign for the Chinook helicopter shot down in Afghanistan on the night of August 6, 2011.  Killed in that crash were 25 special ops forces, including 15 members of Seal Team 6, 5 national Guard troops and 8 Afghans.  Today, the families of the military killed in that crash held a press conference to lay out the coverup by Obama and the military that has gone on since that crash.

Gun Violence Is Down, But You Wouldn't Know From The News.  The rate of firearm homicides has plummeted over the past two decades, but the public doesn't seem to notice.  Could the agenda-driven media have something to do with that?

Ariel Castro, Cleveland Kidnapper, Is a Registered Democrat.  According to voter registration records, Ariel Castro, the Cleveland kidnapper, is a registered Democrat.  He was also the alleged leader among the three Castro brothers, who were arrested this week, and the owner of the house at 2207 Seymour Ave., where the three abducted local women had been kept in captivity for over a decade.  Why is this important?  Whenever a crime or a scandal captures national attention, the pattern in the mainstream media is to either identify the culprit as a Republican or hold silence — in which case we can rest assured that the culprit is a Democrat.

New York Times Ignores Benghazi.  In the past week, the investigation into the September 11, 2012 attacks on the US Consulate in Benghazi has been the dominant news story on most media outlets, including such traditional media venues as CBS News and The Washington Post.  But you wouldn't know it, if the New York Times was your sole source of news and information.

Real Purpose Behind Obama Jaunt to Mexico: Recruitment!  Americans like to think of their press as freer, but it's only free in the sense that it voluntarily puts on its own muzzle.  European tabloids get into bloody brawls with regulators.  American newspapers have nothing to brawl about.  They will gleefully report anything that undermines national security at the drop of a hat, knowing that they won't be touched, but there is a long list of subjects that they won't touch with a million-mile pole.

Nobody Drowned at Watergate.  The emergence of the whistle blowers has made the story too big to ignore, as much as the media would prefer it would go away.  You will note that when it wasn't until after their beloved Obama was safely ensconced in the White House for another four years did the media show any interest in the biggest story of the administration.

America must see Gosnell evil, so that we may rid ourselves of it.  Many of you may not have heard about this case.  It has the dubious distinction of being one crime story the mainstream media isn't all over.  It is an "abortion story," the one topic that defies the media's "if it bleeds, it leads" mantra.  Whether it is the gruesome details of how these children were allegedly killed or that the case involves the politically inconvenient topic the courtroom seats reserved for the media went largely unused.

Benghazi isn't the only bloody disaster being covered up by the Obama administration.
The Camp Bastion Cover-Up.  Do you remember what happened last year on 9/14?  Where are the White House phone calls for the families who continue to grieve?  What is being done to prevent another fatal attack like the one on 9/14?  And why is the full truth being withheld from the American public?

Saudis Warned U.S. in Writing of Boston Bomber's Danger.  For what it's worth, the Department of Homeland Security and the White House are denying this report.  Regardless, this is now out there.  One wonders, what exactly, it would take at this point for our media to actually fall back in love with the once celebrated exercise of truth-gathering and shoe leather reporting.  Yet again, this comes from the foreign press.

Sins Of The Fourth Estate (Part II).  We know the media is spineless.  However its neglect to report on the Gosnell abortion trial shows that they have lost any moral compass they ever had just to cover up Obama's strong support of the abortion industry. [...] What a bunch of hypocrites there are in the mainstream media.  I've been reading their excuses and apologies for shirking their responsibility in ignoring the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell.  Either details from the Grand Jury trial are "too grisly" or they don't cover "local news" and other such nonsense spew from their barf-inducing tripe masquerading as opinion columns.  One pundit had the nerve to suggest that conservatives hadn't covered the story either.

GMA Devotes 109 Minutes to Other Trials, But Not One Second for Gosnell Horrors.  Forty two days ago, on March 18, 2013, abortionist Kermit Gosnell went on trial, charged with the grisly murder of multiple babies and a patient.  Yet, in the seven weeks that followed, ABC News has permitted no coverage, discussion or mention of the case, not even a single utterance of Dr. Gosnell's name.  But that's not due to lack of interest in shocking criminal cases.

Philly Archbishop: National Media Have 'Allergic Disinterest' to Abortionist's Murder Trial.  Catholic Archbishop Charles Chaput, head of the archdiocese of Philadelphia, said that in addition to the ongoing trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, an equally important story is the "failure" of the "most important national media" outlets to cover the case.  "The real story in the Gosnell trial is bigger than the ugly allegations against Gosnell himself," said Abp. Chaput in his April 25 column.  "It includes the failure — the allergic disinterest — of some of our most important national media."

Transparency on birther issue — Barack Obama's best-kept secret.  Article 1 of our Constitution gave the Press the right to reveal, not to conceal news of interest to the American People, yet, fear of disclosing Barack Obama's true eligibility status, the Birther Issue, has permeated the Mainstream Media to this day.  For over four years they have been silent on this issue.  Even Fox News, though vocally critical of the "Stimulus" plans, "Tsar appointees", etc. will not even mention the existence of previous or present eligibility lawsuits in the courts.

AP Edits 'Muslim' Out of Obama's 'Muslim Socialist' WHCD Joke.  In some of its reports on Saturday night's White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD), the Associated Press chose to edit one of President Obama's own gags.  The AP strangely edited out the word "Muslim" in one of Obama's self-referential jokes.

Obama: 'I'm Not the Strapping Young Muslim Socialist That I Used to Be'.  President Obama quipped at the White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday night that he's "not the strapping young Muslim socialist" he once was as gray has salted his hair.

AP Omits 'Muslim' from Obama WHCD Joke.  In some of its reports on Saturday night's White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD), the Associated Press failed to include one of President Obama's own gags.  AP strangely left out the word "Muslim" in one of Obama's self-referential jokes.

The Sleepers Awake.  The regular media is finally covering the Kermit Gosnell trial in a big way.  It's as if they woke up from a deep sleep to notice that a poor black doctor offering a service to the community is being lynched in Philadelphia by 'racist' and 'elitist' prosecutors.  Now they're making up for lost time.

How Abortion Has Changed America.  The trial of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, facing the death penalty for the deaths of four infants and one woman in his clinic, is over.  America has moved on.  It's exactly what the pro-abortion contingent wants.  They want Gosnell out of the news because they want abortion out of the news.

The Pressure is Building!  [Scroll down]  Two of the more dangerous issues, aside from gun control, amnesty, EPA dictates, Fast & Furious, the Benghazi Massacre, NDAA, drones being used against U. S. citizens within our borders, Dodd-Frank, the Sequester, etc., are U. N. Agenda 21 and Common Core.  The low information voter is blissfully ignorant of these assaults, thanks to the media.  The media will not discuss these issues because if people/parents knew about these assaults, they would get involved.  If people were to become involved, the layers on the onions of lies, fraud and malfeasance may be unwound.

People Making Over $100K Received Unemployment Benefits in 2011, Media Mum.  With all the media panic about sequestration, one would think a study finding billions of dollars of fraud in a government program would be national news.  Apparently not, for with few exceptions, a report published by the St. Louis Federal Reserve last week finding $3.3 billion in fraudulent unemployment claims in 2011 got almost no attention.

Secretary Napolitano Caught in Lie, Media Absent.  Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee to discuss immigration policy and was quickly questioned about a Saudi national who was reported early in the investigation of the Boston Marathon bombings as a "person of interest."  Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) inquired about Abdul Rahman Ali al Harbi, about whom Napolitano refused to answer questions at a previous hearing. "Before the [Tsarnaev] brothers became the focus of the investigation, authorities questioned a Saudi student who reportedly was on a terror watchlist," said Grassley, "...if so, how did he obtain a student visa?"

The Gun Rights Revolution You Might Have Missed.  If you live in Arkansas, you can now carry a concealed gun into a bar, or a liquor store — or a church.  College staffers can bring guns on campus.  Folks with a permit from other states can pack heat in Arkansas without filing any paperwork.  These are among the half-dozen legal changes in the state that passed only four months since the Newtown massacre, and Arkansas has plenty of company.

Gosnell the baby-killer and the liberals who shielded him.  One of the most disgusting serial killers in American history is standing trial in Philadelphia at the moment — and, since it's happening in the US, where reporting restrictions are light, the media are free to discuss his case.  Only they haven't — at least, not until recently, and even when the crimes are reported, they haven't merited many headlines.  Which is horrifying, when you consider what the killer is accused of.

Bachmann on Gosnell: 'Mainstream Media Failed to Cover this Horrific Violence Against Women'.  Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said the mainstream media have "all but gone silent" in their trivial coverage of the trial of late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell, a dearth of reporting that she described as perpetrating "violence against women."

Eleven More Seconds of Gosnell Trial Coverage on CBS; More Crickets From ABC and NBC.  CBS is putting its Big Three competitors to shame in actually covering the capital murder trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, but that's not saying much, as Thursday's CBS This Morning devoted a paltry 11 seconds to the latest development in the case.  Norah O'Donnell highlighted that the abortionist's defense attorney rested his case without calling his client or any other witness to testify.

What may be the most sensational mass murder trial in American history went unreported.
President's speech to Planned Parenthood: a reminder of the Left's dishonest abortion views.  Lately, abortion has been in the news.  It never gets far out of the news, but it intruded with extra force these past two weeks for two reasons.  The first was the story about the media's decision to ignore the Kermit Gosnell trial because it didn't fit into the abortion narrative.  The narrative is that abortion should be "safe, rare, and legal."  The Gosnell reality was that women died in his filthy clinic, that living babies got murdered (with the psychopathic Gosnell collecting hands and feet as trophies), and that the abortions were illegal under any standards, since they were so late term as to constitute murder under Pennsylvania law.

Evading Gosnell, Still.  The word in TV newsrooms has long been that "if it bleeds, it leads," meaning that a crime story is often the fastest way to get media attention and coverage.  It doesn't even have to be bloody — witness the wall-to-wall coverage of the Jerry Sandusky sexual-assault case at Penn State last year.  But the trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, currently America's most grisly serial killer, has been an exception.

MSNBC Finally Covers Gosnell Trial in Primetime Five Weeks After it Began.  The murder trial of abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell began on March 18.  On April 23, more than five weeks after it started, the folks at the so-called "news network" MSNBC decided it was time they reported it in primetime.  Hardball's Chris Matthews surprisingly ended the blackout Tuesday [4/23/2013].

Networks: All Quiet on the Gosnell Front.  After a month of ignoring the trial of Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortionist accused of murdering one woman and seven infants, it looked like the media had been shamed into covering the story.  Barely.  Even after the most gruesome detail in a trial full of them came out — a baby who survived an abortion "swimming" in a toilet and "trying to get out" — the silence resumed.  In fact, the only major news outlet that bothered to report on that testimony was The Chicago Tribune.  CNN.com mentioned it, it got no air time.

An Abortionist's Unglamorous Victims.  He's allegedly killed more people than Jeffrey Dahmer and John Wayne Gacy combined, but most Americans have never heard of him.

Gosnell Murder Trial Shows Media Bias At Its Worst.  The trial of notorious Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell — as close to a demonic presence as anything this country will ever see — was almost a month old when the network blackout finally ended.  CNN broke its silence, as did CBS.  National newspapers sent reporters to the trial for the first time.  They started covering it only because of a national outrage that they would so deliberately withhold this horror story from the public — for political reasons.

Yes, There Is a Gosnell Trial Cover-up by Major News Organizations.  The local press has extensively covered the shocking testimony about the Philadelphia "House of Horrors" where Gosnell allegedly killed seven babies and one woman since the trial began on March 18, nearly a month ago.  But while it seems obvious that the national media has mostly ignored the story, a bevy of left-wing journalists and activists have loudly disagreed in recent days — asserting that the big three networks and the major newspapers have appropriately covered a trial that none sent a reporter to cover.

The Meaning of the Gosnell Trial.  The trial of Kermit Gosnell — a Philadelphia doctor charged in January 2011 with, among other things, murdering seven infants who survived abortions he performed — has been under way for a month.  But it was only last week that the case was thrust into the national spotlight.  Thanks to intense pressure from conservative critics of the media's apparent lack of interest in the case, the rest of the country has now glimpsed some of what went on for years in Gosnell's benignly named Women's Medical Society.

The Media After Gosnell.  Indeed, the silence had been stunning since the Gosnell trial began back on March 18.  No mention of the story at all on ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, NPR, or MSNBC, and no front-page stories in any major paper.  National Review, the Weekly Standard, Breitbart.com, and Michelle Malkin, on the other hand, provided early and consistent coverage.

From Roe to Gosnell.  Here is incontrovertible proof that Kirsten Powers and Conor Friedersdorf are correct in arguing that the murder trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell has received insufficient media coverage:  On Friday, Snopes.com was compelled to publish a page confirming that the story is real, not merely an urban legend.

The Top 50 Liberal Media Bias Examples.  [#36]  Name That Party:  Another example of Old Media, left-wing "process," the name that party game is one of the Old Media's favorite mechanisms for giving cover to Democrats.  Here is how it is played:  every time a Democrat is caught in misconduct, the media will either "accidentally" forget to mention his party affiliation or will bury it at the tail of the article were fewer people will see it — you see, the media knows that more people quit reading an article before they get to the last paragraphs than finish reading to the end.

Kermit Gosnell Should Receive The 2013 Margaret Sanger Award.  The media blackout of the Kermit Gosnell trial continues.  Heaven forbid they would find the murder of minority newborns, the spread of venereal disease due to unclean conditions, or the maiming of black women newsworthy.  It's a horrific story that should be making headlines nationwide.  It's so horrible there are many different angles the media could use to cover it.  But they don't.

Did someone mention Margaret Sanger?

The Curious Case of Kermit Gosnell.  If there was ever a case of clear-cut media bias and cover-up, this is it.

Snortworthy Myth: 'Conservative' Media Almost as Culpable as Broadcast Networks in Ignoring Gosnell Trial.  Through Monday evening, April 8, the Media Research Center's Matt Philbin noted that Gosnell's trial "has received exactly zero seconds of airtime on the broadcast networks."  In a pathetic attempt at a response on Friday, Salon's Alex Seitz-Wald and several others are trying to claim that "conservative" outlets have also virtually ignored the trial.

The Mass Murderer Who Didn't Make the Mass Media.  Relatively few people wish to commit mass murder on the scale of Gosnell — that's the good news.  The bad news is that the vast ranks of newspaper publishers, TV executives, editors, news producers, radio assignment editors, and reporters somehow reached an instant, near universal consensus that a man who may well be America's all-time champion mass murderer isn't a story at all, never mind one to hold the front page for — because they didn't see him as a murderer; they saw him as a "choice-provider" who got a little out of hand.

Working Up to Auschwitz.  A demon has been revealed in twenty-first-century Philadelphia, and the three broadcast networks have been enforcing a policy of silence about the discovery.  So have most major newspapers.

The Gosnell silence: Murder, abortion and the media.  In Philadelphia, a doctor is on trial for the gruesome murders of eight people inside his low-rent office.  A former assistant testified that she personally witnessed the physician commit at least 30 murders.  Most of the patients were "beheaded," another assistant said, adding that there was "blood all over the place."  If you have not heard of this doctor's trial for committing a terrifying, decades-long string of serial killings, there is a reason.  He is an abortionist.

How to Murder the Innocent, Defenseless, and Undefended and Make Big Bucks Doing It!  If you are unaware of the trial taking place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, of the abortion doctor (I use the term "doctor" loosely) Kermit Gosnell, I am not surprised.  Our feckless, spineless, corrupt and statist-driven media have done their best to sweep it all under the rug. [...] The police originally raided Dr. Gosnell's "House of Horrors" because he was overprescribing oxycontin — not because he was murdering infants.

News media absent at Gosnell trial
Tip Line: Did Your Editor Spike Kermit Gosnell Coverage? Report It Here Anonymously.  The media behavior regarding the trial of monster Kermit Gosnell is a turning point: with all of conservative media's complaints regarding the liberal bias of U.S. media, we never imagined this could happen.  We know there are journalists out there infuriated by their employer's current behavior:  The change must start with you.

MSM facing a new game with Gosnell blackout.  Pajamas Media has established an anonymous tip hotline for media people to blow the whistle on spiking of coverage of the Gosnell horrors at their newspaper, TV station, website, or network.

Shaming the MSM on abortion house of horrors blackout.  The progressive media are deliberately ignoring the horrifying practices of Dr. Kenneth Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortionist who executed babies born live and is now on trial for murder. [...] At this stage of media corruption, the only option we have in facing such evil is public shaming and ridicule.  We must demand answers as to why they ignore such a compelling story, and when we get them, we must parse them and ridicule the self-serving rationalizations.

If President Barack Obama had a son, would he look like any of the babies Kermit Gosnell beheaded?  If you don't know who Kermit Gosnell is, that's because you read the New York Times and Politico.com, and you watch network news.

Truly horrifying allegations of the murder of babies that the US media are playing down .  British readers must know about the case of Dr Kermit Gosnell, which has been played down in the American media — possibly because the allegations of a homicidal abortion doctor don't fit into their pro-choice narrative.

Why Dr. Kermit Gosnell's Trial Should Be a Front-Page Story.  Inducing live births and subsequently severing the heads of the babies is indeed a horrific story that merits significant attention.  Strange as it seems to say it, however, that understates the case.  For this isn't solely a story about babies having their heads severed, though it is that.  It is also a story about a place where, according to the grand jury, women were sent to give birth into toilets; where a doctor casually spread gonorrhea and chlamydiae to unsuspecting women through the reuse of cheap, disposable instruments; an office where a 15-year-old administered anesthesia; an office where former workers admit to playing games when giving patients powerful narcotics; an office where white women were attended to by a doctor and black women were pawned off on clueless untrained staffers.  Any single one of those things would itself make for a blockbuster news story.

The Editor says...
It could be that "Doctor" Gosnell's house of horrors is the rule, not an isolated exception.  What percentage of abortion clinics nation-wide are routinely inspected?  There could be dozens more like this.  And even if the offices are cleaner, and the babies younger, the techniques are similar and the outcome is the same.

House pro-lifers: Abortion trial ignored.  Reflecting mounting frustration over the lack of press coverage of inner-city Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell's murder trial, a group of pro-life House members took to the floor to denounce what they call a "national media cover-up" of the sensational case.  "Again, I ask my colleagues and I ask the news media, 'Why the blackout?'" said Rep. Christopher H. Smith, New Jersey Republican.  "Will America ever be told of the brutality of abortion?"

Why They Won't Talk About Kermit Gosnell.  You may not have heard much about Gosnell's case.  That's because the mainstream press has chosen by and large to ignore it.  There is no area of American politics in which the press is more activist or biased or unethical than social issues, the so-called culture wars.

Abortion Doc 'Gosnell' Is Most Searched Term on Politico, Yields Zero Matches.  The media will tell you they are all about news, sensationalism, "if it bleeds it leads," ratings, money, fulfilling demand, and clicks — but that is all a lie.  Over at Politico, the number-one "most searched" term is "kermit gosnell," the abortion doctor currently on trial in Philadelphia for the murder of seven babies.  That search yields zero matches.

Photo: Empty 'Reserved Media Seating' at Abortion Doc Trial.  The picture [in this article], for what it's worth, is of the reserved media seats at the Gosnell trial.  It was taken by JD Mullane, a news writer and columnist for the Bucks County Courier Times, The Intel and the Burlington County (NJ) Times.

Obama Wants Americans' Hard-Earned Retirement Savings.  Last year Washington raked in $1.16 trillion in individual income tax revenue and expects to squeeze $1.36 trillion out of taxpayers in 2013.  But President Obama wants more — and he's coming after your retirement.

Bozell: ABC, CBS, NBC 'Deliberately Censoring' Bad News on Obamacare.  Media Research Center President Brent Bozell, based on a new analysis, said ABC, CBS, and NBC "are deliberately censoring news and information" that is negative about Obamacare, an assertion that Stuart Varney, host of Fox's Varney & Co., said was true, adding, "There is deliberate censorship of information about Obamacare."

News that must be suppressed.  If our major media were not fully committed propagandists, they would report the findings of a large scale survey of law enforcement personnel on the subject of further gun legislation.  After all, they are currently following the President's strategy of distracting the public from the awful state of the economy by exploiting the victims of Newtown to push for further erosion of Second Amendment rights.  So the views of law enforcement personnel ought ot [sic] be of some interest.

Dead silence.  The [Kermit Gosnell] trial is receiving intensive coverage in Philadelphia and across the conservative press and Web sites.  But national networks and newspapers?  Not so much.  The reason seems obvious: Much of our press corps skews to one side on abortion.  So even though what Gosnell is charged with is closer to infanticide — an unlicensed abortionist profiting mightily by killing the newborn babies of poor, minority women — somehow it's not news.

We've forgotten what belongs on Page One.  Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page.  The revolting revelations of Gosnell's former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.

Planned Parenthood's defense of infanticide.  When Rep. Todd Akin made his outrageous comments about "legitimate rape" it was front page news — and rightly so.  But when a representative of Planned Parenthood is caught on camera defending infanticide, it merits barely a mention in the mainstream media.

How The Media Continues To Serve As Obama's Bodyguard.  [Cindy] Sheehan was given any and every platform, with the media tripping over itself, for years, to report her words.  The espoused rationale for the intense coverage was, purportedly, that this grieving mother deserved an 'explanation' for her son's death. [...] That same media, however, who believed Sheehan was owed an explanation, is curiously dismissive of Pat Smith.  Pat Smith lost her son, Information Officer Sean Smith, in the Benghazi attack last autumn.

The most shocking news you won't see in the MSM today.  The murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell largely is being ignored by the mainstream media, even in the face of grisly testimony, such as what we heard yesterday. [...] The MSM cannot mentally deal with this trial either, mainly because they realize it exposes the logical destination of the euphemistically title "pro-choice" movement.

Abortion doctor on trial, but media not interested; pro-lifers see bias in Philadelphia case.  The trial details are nothing short of sensational:  A doctor accused of killing seven newborns and a young woman at a filthy Philadelphia clinic strewn with body parts and described as a "slaughterhouse."  It's big news in Philadelphia, but nationally, not so much.  The lack of coverage is a problem for a growing chorus of conservative and media critics, who allege that the scant national media attention can be attributed not to the courtroom drama but the politics of abortion.

Why Media Are Ignoring Fox News' Jana Winter, And Why They Should Start Caring.  There is a fine and often unspoken line of trust between journalists and their sources, which often takes months, if not years, to establish.  Break that line with one source and you'll face an uphill battle the next time you want to establish confidential rapport with another.  But what happens when the trade off is jail time?  It's a dilemma Fox News reporter Jana Winter is facing right now, provided she refuses to reveal her sources.

CNN journalist criticizes liberal media bias in Jana Winter case.  Denver-based CNN journalist Jim Spellman says the total lack of media coverage of the legal travails faced by Fox News reporter Jana Winter for protecting her sources clearly demonstrates an anti-Fox News bias in the press.

Mexican, U.S. Media Too Scared To Cover Border Crime.  Violence along the southern border has gotten so out of control that both Mexican and American journalists have stopped reporting it out of fear that drug cartels will retaliate against them and their families.  This means Americans will be kept in the dark about the crisis along the porous and increasingly dangerous Mexican border.  We certainly can't expect the truth from the government.

Chicago Running Out of Euphemisms.  Pity the poor Chicago reporter.  She is running out of ways to describe black mob violence without using the words "black mob violence." [...] It's a pretty easy gig:  Or it was until the black mobs started showing up three years ago.  Since then Chicago has seen at least 50 episodes of black mob violence of all shapes and sizes in all parts of the city:  Stealing, beating, destroying, vandalizing, terrorizing, stabbing, even killing.  All of a sudden, the reporter must turn color blind.  And ignore the central unifying feature of the violence:  Everyone involved is black.

"Traditional Grading" vs "Esteem Grading" in Atlanta.  For several years the Atlanta cheating scandal has been percolating first in the local press then in the state press and finally nationally. [...] The people involved were democrats, members of the teachers union and people of color.  It's not a narrative that the mainstream media can allow.  These facts can't be highlighted by the media any more than the idea that the Catholic Church's sex scandals were overwhelmingly committed by gay priests.

White House Scrubs First Daughters Ski Trip Report.  A local news affiliate in Idaho reported that the First Daughters, Sasha and Malia Obama, are on a Spring Break ski trip in Sun Valley, Idaho.  The story quickly spread across the Internet when picked up by the highly trafficked Drudge Report website.  But hours later, the story disappeared from the KMVT website without an update or correction.  Breitbart News confirmed that the White House requested that the post be removed.

Media compliant with White House censorship.  While spring break students visiting Washington DC are locked out of the sequestered White House, the resident students of the White House, Malia and Sasha Obama, are enjoying their spring break.  First they jetted off to the Bahamas for sun and fun and then, for a change in weather, jetted off to Sun Valley, Idaho for some skiing. [...] But, unless you got an early glimpse of the Drudge Report or a local Idaho television news report, the Obama sisters' double spring break vacation disappeared from the news.

The Editor says...
If the White House can order a newspaper to remove an unflattering story, that is a direct assault on the First Amendment.  If the newspaper voluntarily removes such a story, that is an example of unmitigated bias.  Either way, it stinks.

Networks Silent as Obama Gives Up on Closing Guantanamo.  Barack Obama's State Department on Monday [1/28/2013] announced that it will close the office dedicated to shutting down Guantanamo Bay.  According to the New York Times, this means that the President "does not currently see the closing of the prison as a realistic priority, despite repeated statements that [the administration] still intends to do so."  Yet, all three network newscasts on Monday night [1/28/2013] and the morning shows on Tuesday skipped the revelation.

Conservative Leaders Demand Media Stop Censoring Gosnell Trial.  Today [4/4/2013] twenty prominent leaders of the conservative movement have joined NewsBusters publisher and Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell in demanding the broadcast networks stop censoring coverage of the trial of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell and the testimony of the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates in favor of murdering children who survive botched abortions.

A House of Horrors in Philadelphia.  Over three decades, abortionist Kermit Gosnell and his staff dispensed death to thousands of unborn babies, born-alive babies, and at least two women.  Like the Governor, Gosnell kept trophies of his victims — bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses and fetus parts that were scattered throughout his squalid West Philly "clinic."  Gosnell is now on trial for the first-degree murder of seven newborn babies and the third degree murder of a mother who died after a botched abortion.

Skipping an Abortionist's 'House of Horrors'.  Abortionist Kermit Gosnell is on trial in Philadelphia, and not just for killing babies outside the womb, but also for killing a mother through reckless use of anesthesia.  Network TV coverage of the trial?  Zero on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, NPR, and PBS.  CNN's entire coverage seems to be one sentence from Jake Tapper on March 21.

Top Ten ObamaCare Horror Stories the Media Are Covering Up.  Three years ago, Obama, Democrats, and his media lied to us about cutting the cost of health care, being able to keep our insurance, and not taxing the middle class.  Today, those lies and what ObamaCare is and will do to the working and middle class are the biggest untold story in America.  The media is currently engaged in an ObamaCare cover-up every bit as big, corrupt, and damaging as the ongoing Libya cover up.

Obama Compared the Palestinians to Canada? Networks Ignore The Gaffe.  Radio hosts like Mark Levin and Web sites like Canada Free Press are mocking President Obama's statement in a press conference yesterday [3/21/2013] with Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, where he compared the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to U.S.-Canada relations.  What?  Levin called him a "moron" for the comparison.  But ABC, CBS, and NBC failed to notice.  They acted like a press release service for Obama on their newscasts Thursday night and Friday morning [...]

Peggy Noonan Interrupts Blackout as Networks Continue to Ignore Abortionist's Trial.  The Big Three networks' morning and evening newscasts still haven't covered the murder trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell as of Monday morning [4/1/2013].  ABC, CBS, and NBC have maintained their coverage blackout despite the graphic witness testimony and the in-your-face courtroom antics of Dr. Gosnell's defense attorney during the first two weeks of the proceedings.  The Philadelphia physician is charged with murdering seven newborn children at his decrepit abortion facility.

Big Three Networks Ignore Abortion Doc Who Snipped Babies' Necks.  ABC, CBS, and NBC's morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, which began on Monday [3/18/2013].  Gosnell is charged with murdering seven babies who were born after viability in his rundown abortion facility.  The Big Three also gave the story minimal coverage back in January 2011, after the Philadelphia physician was arrested. ABC completely ignored it, CBS Evening News aired one full story, and NBC gave just 50 words on Today.

In land of legal abortion, Gosnell case is no big deal.  Turns out, at least outside of his home town, the capital murder trial of Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortionist who specialized in delivering late-term babies alive and then killing them by severing their spinal cords with scissors inserted into the backs of their necks, and collected their severed baby feet in jars, isn't much of a news story.  As of Wednesday [3/20/2013], not one of the three major networks was covering it; it seems that America isn't terribly disturbed by the killings of one woman and a bunch of unwanted, unnamed babies who were already marked for destruction anyway.

The City of Chicago Declared War on Cop Bloggers!  Having spent the last 24 years as a freelance TV news producer I learned the primary reason that important stories go untold and published.  Journalists all think they need cooperation from politicians, bureaucrats and government in order to report news.  In fact journalists beg for exclusive tips on government activities like police crackdowns, raids and important crime stories.  The payoff for the tips comes in important exposure and glad-handing for certain self-serving accomplishments real or imagined.  That, along with killing any unflattering stories.  Reporters can't seem to develop independent information sources and wrongly think without government official's help they would be unable to report on government at all.  Very few reporters have the courage to become persona non-gratia with any government agency.

Biden Press Office Apologizes for Forcing Reporter to Delete Photo.  Just imagine if VP Cheney's office had accosted a reporter at public event and demanded that a photo be deleted from the reporter's camera.  It would be the lead story on every MSM outlet, offered as proof of the rising tide of fascism.  Yet such an incident happened last week with VP Biden, and virtually no mention of it can be found in the mainstream media.

GM has 574,000 Cars In Dealer Inventory, Despite No Interest Loans, Highest Car Discounts.  As of yesterday desperate car buyers who can't rub two dimes together, can drive to the local unemployment office in the luxury of their brand new Chevy Imapala, or alternatively pick a just as worthless Chevy Malibu, HHR WAgon, Traverse SUV, as well as a Silverado, Colorado and Avalanche pickups, which are now offered at either 72 or 60 months of interest-free loans.  "The 60-month deal also applies to the Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia SUVs and Sierra pickups."  That pretty much covers the entire line up.

The "Stuffing" Is Back As GM's February Dealer Inventory Soars To Second Highest Ever.  [GM has] a near record 743K cars with dealers — the second highest ever.

Parking lot
Where 'Channel-Stuffed' German Cars Go To Die.  This car park of chaos is full of nearly-new cars meant for destruction so as never to enter the car market as a cheap alternative and to maintain a high-priced spare parts market.  It seems the Keynesian profligacy or digging a hole to fill it in has progressed in the 21st century to building a car and crushing that car as the engine of growth for our economies.

Broadcast Networks Ignore Kwame Kilpatrick Conviction; PBS Fails to Report Party Label.  Former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick (D) was convicted yesterday [3/11/2013] on 24 separate federal corruption charges, which could cost him up to 20 years in prison.  However, ABC, CBS, and NBC could not be bothered to even mention the conviction of this disgraced ex-mayor of a major, blighted American city on their nightly news programs.

Media Protects Obama From Post-Sequester Poll Collapse.  The media knows that any Narrative about Obama's fall from grace with the public will only undermine his political capital all the more.  So rather than act like journalists and report on a real story, the media instead conspires together in silence, hoping they can ignore reality long enough to ride it out.

The media's approach to Rand Paul's filibuster: pretend it never happened.  [The] front pages from some of the dominant newspapers in America provide a textbook example of mainstream media control over political dialogue in America.  The media's playbook is simple:  For Democrats, elevate good stories and bury bad ones.  For Republicans, elevate bad stories and bury good ones.  Because the drive-by media is no longer interested in reporting news, but only cares about obtaining outcomes, it is up to us [...] to offset the media hegemony.

All the President's unaccountable men.  When Bob Woodward, one of Washington's most distinguished journalists, accuses the White House of rewriting history, even liberals should take note.  And when the White House responds by threatening him, you'd think the story would become a national scandal.

If this is even half true, Barack Obama is the most destructive traitor in the history of the world.
The Most Open Administration in History.  As Erik Rush has stated "far more dangerous and terrifying than Obama's utter disregard for the Constitution is the abject treason of this president."  According to Rush, Obama has met with the Chinese "to find out if the Chinese [are] open to a land and resource swap for debt forgiveness."  This would translate into the Chinese obtaining American land in payment of the U.S. debt to China.

"It is the Chinese who are pushing for the disarming of the American populace."
Obama: Selling out America — literally.  [Scroll down]  According to this source, President Obama had a mid-level U.S. official meet with a Chinese officer in 2011 to find out if the Chinese were open to a land and resource swap for debt forgiveness.  The upshot of this is that the Chinese are now engaging in experimental "farming" and "scientific" studies in several locations in the U.S. (in various states).  The personnel involved are all Chinese military, and the plan is to use these as the base for the expansion of "land settlements" in payment of the U.S. debt to China. [...] According to this scenario, the issuing of new drilling licenses in the U.S. have been stopped on federally held land until the Chinese can be in position to take over new oil production.

Mainstream Media Censorship Exposed.  Flagship news publications in the United States mainstream media have been forced to admit that over the years they quietly forged partnerships with the federal government in order to withhold from American taxpayers vital information on such topics as the government's drone-assassination program, torture, secret prisons and warrantless snooping.  Some of the worst cases of collusion and suppression go back 10 years to the early days of the modern "war on terror."

Debtor Prisons Popping Up Across America.  While Wall Street banks are being rewarded billions in taxpayer-funded bailout money to recover from risky financial schemes, cash-strapped Americans around the country are being jailed for simply not having enough money to pay their bills.

Obama and the Media: Old Policy Resurfacing.  When Amory Gutierrez from the Pleasanton Weekly wanted to do a puff piece on the Obamas' helicopter, "Marine One," the White House put out the welcome mat. [...] Gutierrez, however, did not keep to the anticipated script.  Her piece gushed over the helicopter flown by a Marine crew, but then went on to repeat what the Marines had told her.  In nearly four years of flying the Obamas, Michelle Obama had never so much as verbally acknowledged the crew's existence.  Intentional or not, the one line in the otherwise celebratory piece made the first lady look aloof and disdainful of the military — or as some people put it, just plain snooty.  The White House moved decisively into damage-control mode.

Employees: Obama donor in process of buying up and 'destroying' America's top pro-gun media outlets.  Employees of Obama donor Leo Hindery Jr.'s media conglomerate Intermedia Partners, which now owns most of the top gun-culture media outlets in the country, believe that Hindery plans to gut and destroy all of them as part of a business plan that has already led to numerous layoffs and the virtual shuttering of prominent television production facilities in Minnesota and Montana.  Hindery, who was in consideration to be President Barack Obama's secretary of commerce, is managing partner of Intermedia Partners.  The New York-based media private equity fund owns Intermedia Outdoor Holdings, which publishes 17 hunting, fishing, and shooting magazines, including Guns & Ammo, Handguns, Gun Dog, Rifle Shooter and Shooting Times.

The Editor says...
If there is no demand for those magazines, let them all die.  On the other hand, if there is a market, you should start a new gun magazine as soon as the others are out of the way — unless it is already impossible to start a business in this country.

Explaining the Inexplicable.  Almost daily on internet news agencies is some lurid story of a shooting, flash-mobbing, or beating that unfortunately involves a racial motif. [...] Yet such information is usually implicit rather than overt.  The paper or news agency that reports the crime either provides no overtly physical description of the suspects, or offers almost every detail of their appearances (sometimes even artists' renditions!) except for their race.

The David Gregory police mystery.  The District of Columbia seems not to want the public to know what it did — if anything — while investigating NBC News' David Gregory for possession of an illegal 30-round magazine.  The police refuse to turn over the public documents in the case, and the city council is allowing them to stonewall.

GAO Report: Obama's Policies 'Not Sustainable'.  For two months, reporters and lawmakers have ignored a devastating report from the federal government itself, which warns that the nation's current fiscal policy will lead to economic collapse.  The Government Accountability Office (GAO) — the personal auditor of President Obama and the federal government — released its assessment of the federal government on January 17, 2013.  The report's findings illuminate just how dire America's spending problem is and, therefore, how little the current cuts debated by Congress do to fix it.

How Democrats Sponsored Illegal Immigration.  [J]ust as Barack Obama escaped media scrutiny during his 2008 and 2012 campaigns, the news media in Chicago have never reported on the corrupt administrative actions its mayors have taken to make it a sanctuary city for illegal immigration.  To this day the media refuse to discuss its sanctuary status or tell the story of how it came about, and how Hispanics are being directed, through government programs, into highly segregated communities.

Man Shoots and Kills Two Home Invaders: National Media Silent.  In yet another example of self defence using a firearm, a man used a gun to defend himself, and his toddler son from home invaders.  Yet, the national media chose to take a pass on covering it.

Broadcast Networks Largely Ignore Jesse Jackson, Jr. Indictment.  A survey of the big three networks showed news coverage of the indictment of former Chicago Democrat Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. was sparse to non-existent for the first three days after the indictment was made public.  Even when his trouble was reported, the fact that he is a Democrat went unmentioned.

MSNBC's Jansing, Roberts Note Jesse Jackson Jr. Guilty Plea, Omit Party Label.  Twenty minutes into her February 20 Jansing & Co. program, MSNBC anchor Chris Jansing noted that former Illinois Democrat Jesse Jackson was entering a federal courtroom later that hour to plead guilty to campaign finance violations.  Only Jansing left out the part about Jackson being a Democrat.  What's more, while Jansing noted that Jackson's wife Sandi was answering charges of filing false tax returns, she failed to note that Sandi Jackson, also a Democrat, resigned her seat as Chicago city alderman in January.

Saving the Fish to Kill the Fish.  Saving the fish isn't about saving the fish.  With the price of gasoline at record heights, why are there so many abandoned rigs in the Gulf?  A safe bet would be because of the government.

Media Ignore Domestic Terrorist Conviction of Gay-Rights Activist.  How many stories have you seen on the broadcast networks or cable networks — any of the networks — about the first-ever domestic terrorism conviction in our nation's capital?  Is same-sex marriage such a politically correct issue that no one wants to inform the public when a gay-rights political activist shoots someone in an attempted mass-murder?

News orgs had 'informal arrangement' not to mention Saudi drone base.  A media story lies at the center of a Washington Post article on the Obama administration's targeted killing program.  In the story, The Post reveals that the 2011 attack that killed U.S. citizen and al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki was launched from a base in Saudi Arabia.  That base, notes the story, was set up to combat al-Qaeda's presence in the Arabian peninsula.  From there, Greg Miller and Karen DeYoung explain why news of the base is just now emerging[...]

NYT and WaPo Got Pulitzers Disclosing Secrets Under Bush — Those Secrets Are Safe Under Obama.  The media complicity in President Obama's drone strategy gets more and more astonishing with each passing day.  On Wednesday [2/6/2013], Britain's Guardian published a piece with the incredible sub-headline "New York Times and Washington Post knew about secret drone base in Saudi Arabia but agreed not to disclose it to the public."

The Truth About Dorner: Leftism Is Violence.  The media has been dishonest in trying to cover up [Christopher Jordan] Dorner's left-wing views.  They've been beyond hypocritical in drawing no link between Dorner's acts and his politics — after they have repeatedly tried to link acts of violence to conservatism even when, as usual, there was no link to be made.  Worst of all, as Big Government has shown, they are beginning to try to justify the slaughter.

Suspected Mass-Murderer's Manifesto Endorses Hillary, Obama, Gun Control, Elite Media.  Chris Dorner, the former-police officer suspected of being behind the murder rampage presently unfolding in Los Angeles, has apparently left behind a manifesto addressed to America that the media's already selectively reporting on to leave out the more inconvenient portions.  You see, there's no political upside for the media to reveal the politics of this suspected madman.

Suspected L.A. Cop Killer Posted Pro-Obama, Pro-Gun Control, Leftist Rant on the Web.  The suspect, Chris Dorner, posted a manifesto on the web, but media are ignoring some of its key passages.  Dorner's rant begins with an attempt to justify his crimes, and then reveals a man steeped in typical Think Progress, Media Matters style leftist thinking.

News Media Scrub Cop Murderer's Manifesto of Pro-Obama, Hillary, MSNBC, CNN, Gay, and Anti-Gun Comments.  I started noticing that some of the details the media was talking about didn't fit the released manifesto I've read everywhere.  Especially interesting, is that KFI's morning news regurgitator Bill Handel had mentioned some pro-Obama comments and anti-NRA sentiments in the manifesto.  But these weren't in the copy that KFI themselves released — see for yourself.

Former LAPD officer on rampage, still at large; media deletes half of his manifesto.  The only thing more chilling than the Dorner manifesto [...] is the partial Dorner manifesto being misrepresented as a complete document, where his gun-control loving, pro-Hillary, pro-Obama, rants are completely edited out.  Yes, like the Occupy terrorists, Floyd Corkins, and Nkosi Thandiwe, Christopher Dorner is another radical left wing terrorist the media is trying hard to cover up for, even as they are forced to cover his crimes.

If Christians acted like this, it would be front-page news.
'Muslim Patrols': Sharia Enforcers Hit Britain's Streets.  No longer content with preaching Sharia in the mosque, some British Muslims are now attempting to impose Islamic law on the streets.  In videos posted on YouTube, self-described "Muslim patrols" have filmed themselves berating young women for being inappropriately dressed, seizing cans of beer from men, and burning posters advertising women's underwear.  In another video, a mob pursues a man they suspect of being gay down a street, calling him a "fag" and telling him to get out of their "Muslim area."

Major News Media Ignore Woman's Reported Botched Abortion Death.  A 29-year-old woman died Thursday [2/7/2013] after undergoing a late-term abortion at the Maryland clinic operated by the notorious Dr. LeRoy Carhart.  However, despite Carhart's international reputation, no major news organization is covering the reported death.  The victim, who was eight months pregnant, traveled from out of state to the Germantown Reproductive Health Center that Carhart operates in suburban Montgomery County, about 20 miles from Washington, D.C.

Suspect Shot and Killed in Attempted Home Invasion in Fairborn, Ohio.  Well, shouldn't this be flooding the news channels, considering everything else?

47 million Americans on food stamps, Obamas pig out on a 3,000 calorie inaugural luncheon.  Although Obamacare requires restaurants to post calorie counts for all their menu items, Dear Leader's inaugural luncheon got a pass.  It's good to be king!  Of course, if you tried to serve this lunch in your local high school cafeteria, Moochelle would have you arrested.

At Church, Obama's Pastor Calls Republicans "The Enemies" — Starts Chanting "Forward".  Obama went to church today in Washington DC. His pastor used the story of Moses to call Republicans "the enemies."  And, started chanting "Forward!" [...] For some strange reason the Obama-media didn't think this outrageous service was newsworthy.

When Kids and Guns Mix.  The mainstream media won't report stories of children who have successfully used guns in self-defense to save their lives.

Obama's Greatest Legacy Might Be Destroying the Media.  On Thursday [1/17/2013], while looking wistfully back at Obama's first four years, NBC News accidentally did some actual reporting. [...] But there it finally was:  The Truth — and from NBC News, no less.  Poverty's up (from 43.6 million to 46.2 million), middle class incomes are down ($50k compared to $52k), the deficit's exploded (from $10 trillion to $16 trillion), food stamp recipients have skyrocketed (33.5 million to 46.6 million), unemployment hasn't budged, and the same number of people are without health insurance today as there were in 2009.

The Mainstream Media has avoided any mention of Brennan's significant role in the Benghazi tragedy.  [Scroll down]  [John] Brennan is head of the president's National Counterterrorism group.  During his time there he has worked very closely with our favorite FBI Director, Mr. Eric Holder.  Their work has resulted in the single greatest expansion of police state surveillance on American citizens in the history of this country.  Once again, the mainstream media is silent on this fact.  Remember, it was the FBI who Obama said he sent to Benghazi to investigate the attack that killed four Americans.  It was the FBI who delayed that investigation because they said it was too dangerous and it's the Holder FBI who says the investigation is "ongoing".  Right.  The cover-up is right there in front of everyone but this Obama administration doesn't care.  They know there isn't [sic] enough people wanting to challenge them so they'll just go right on lying to us.

The Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy.  Matthew Continetti writes at the Washington Free Beacon about the formation of an incredibly powerful lobbying group, composed of organizations that boast millions of political foot soldiers, with a total income measured in the billions of dollars.  It plans to spend tens of millions of dollars pushing a rigid ideological agenda.  It's a textbook example of everything we are constantly told is "wrong" with Washington, a combination of big money, political self-interest, political influence, and secrecy.

CBS Actually Covers Gun Self-Defense Case Promoted By NRA; ABC, NBC Punt.  On Friday's [1/11/2013] CBS This Morning, Bill Plante refreshingly spotlighted how firearms are used to protect the lives of ordinary Americans.  Plante noted how the National Rifle Association "Tweeted a story... about Melinda Herman, a Georgia woman who shot an intruder in self-defense as she waited with her two children in a closet....  She fired at the man multiple times with a .38 caliber handgun."  The two other Big Three morning shows failed to mention this story during their coverage of the current gun control debate.

School Shooting in Tennessee That National Media Did Not Report.  I am sure that no one outside of our immediate region has ever heard the story, because the only person who was shot — and killed — was the gunman.  These types of stories don't fit the narrative of those who want "gun-free zones" and so are ignored by the national media.

Leaked Report, Suppressed by Cuomo, Says Fracking is Safe.  Cuomo's reluctance to release a report his administration commissioned is understandable in light of a potential backlash by environmentalists.  But suppressing information favorable to the use of fracking is only harming the economy of the state which is losing out on jobs and tax revenue.

NYT Puts Story of Leaked 'Fracking Is Safe' Report Covered Up for a Year on Page A19.  One would think that a newspaper which in its view has largely made its reputation on publishing leaked government documents and revealing government secrets would have been a bit more excited about being the sole receipient of a report from the State of New York indicating that hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," is safe.  The State had already sat on the report for a year.

More about fracking.

The Scapegoat Express.  Filled from birth on a steady diet of the pervasiveness of white racism in America, rage-filled urban youths across the nation play "the knockout game" with often fatal results for their randomly selected white or Asian victims.  Meanwhile, the elite liberal media fail to notice the national scope of the almost weekly occurrences.  Google "the knockout game" and start reading the dozens of local stories that the media refuse to connect or identify as part of a dangerous national trend.  And it doesn't stop with knocking out random passers-by with sucker punches and then kicking them in head until they are dead, disfigured for life, or in comas.

The Anniversary that Wasn't There.  A sesquicentennial is a really big deal!  A century and a half ago, something happened that affects us today.  So why was the abolition of slavery in the United States (if that isn't a big deal, what is?) worthy of almost no attention when it marked its sesquicentennial on January first, 2013?  In the words on MLK, Jr, "Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty we are free at last," yet there were no celebrations of freedom in the black community.

The Editor says...
Blacks apparently would prefer to play the role of perpetual victims, rather than celebrate their costly freedom.

Coldest Week Since 1938 Kills 45 Across Russia.  How come we never hear about how many people die from hypothermia?  It is one of the biggest killers in the world.  Hypothermia kills far more than heat and hurricanes combined.  Not to mention what it does to crops, which in turn causes more deaths.  And yet we never hear about the dangers of cold weather.

If it isn't already obvious to you, global warming is a hoax, it stopped 15 years ago, and a few degrees of warming would be a good thing.

The December 16 Movie Theater Shooting You Didn't Hear About.  The story was covered locally, but seeing as it happened just one day after the Sandyhook massacre in Connecticut, you would think it would have gotten more airplay in the MSM.  Don't stories like this one play right into their anti-gun hands?  No — not this one.

The Fiscal Cliff is a Diversion from the Real Problem.  The fact that the Federal Reserve recently decided to more than double its monetary stimulus (also known as "money printing," debt monetization, quantitative easing or simply QE) to $85 billion a month is telling.  It suggests the Fed may be taking emergency measures to contain systemic risk and fund deficit spending and U.S. government debt issuance foreigners no longer want.  The doubling of QE to a trillion dollars a year is a complete departure from what any previous Federal Reserve board would consider appropriate or responsible.

The Fiscal Cliff Diversion.  [Scroll down]  Yet maybe the most telling informational deficiency is the shortage of reporting on the economic stimulative effects of previous income tax and capital gain tax reductions.  Reductions that then resulted in growing tax revenues and appreciable increases in prosperity for the American people.  In fact MSM stories have tried to debunk the realities of the Coolidge, JFK, Reagan, Clinton and Bush 43 tax reductions that kick started past sagging economies.  The media's reluctance to discuss tax cutting or the subsequent economic surges that followed their execution has largely removed these strategies from public debate.

Something is fundamentally wrong with the media in this country.  [Lt. Col. Ralph] Peters says, the lack of media interest in this entire Benghazi scandal where 4 people needlessly died and the Obama administration lied points to the fact that there is a fundamental problem with the media in this country.  He says the media are more concerned with a stray kitten than Benghazi.

U.S. Press Won't Report That Egypt's Constitution Is Sharia-Based — And Socialist.  While the Associated Press, New York Times, and the vast majority of the U.S. establishment press have avoided directly referring to Egypt's newly-approved constitution, spearheaded by ruler by decree Mohammed Morsi, as oriented toward imposing Muslim sharia law in that nation, the international press hasn't been so reluctant.  Who do you believe, the rest of the world or your agenda-driven U.S-based news sources?  Additionally, as will be seen, the constitution is so unabashedly socialist it would have been labeled communist if it had appeared any time prior to 1990.

Racial violence is increasingly common and most media ignore it.
Shot For Being White.  Four black people in Wilmington, North Carolina needed money for marijuana and traveling.  So they set out to get it by robbing white people.  They tried to break into a house, but were seen, so they fled.  They stalked a woman through downtown Wilmington, but she escaped.  Finally they came upon a 20-year-old college kid named Joshua.  They took his money, cell phone and sandwich.  Then he asked them to only take his money and not his ID because he explained to them it was hard to replace.  Then they shot and killed him.

More examples of black hate crimes.

Questions the Press Doesn't Ask.  An unpaid intern working in the office of Democratic New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez (who was reelected on Nov. 6) was arrested on Dec. 6.  It seems the 18-year-old illegal immigrant from Peru (who helped the senator on immigration issues!) was a registered sex offender.  ICE knew about him, but he was repeatedly told by higher ups at DHS, according to a government source, to delay the arrest until after the election.  If true, that's a remarkable politicization of law enforcement.

With Election Over, Americans Find They Were Duped By Democrats And Obama.  Yes, the total number of people with private-sector jobs has grown by 2 million over the last year, as the White House proudly trumpets — and did on the campaign trail.  But what never gets reported is that 2.4 million people have left the workforce entirely over the same stretch — so there is no net real job growth.

Ambassador Stevens Funeral, no news coverage? Not One Word?  There has not been a breath of information on Ambassador Stevens' funeral in the news anywhere.  Was he not a U.S. Ambassador?  Was he not killed in the line of duty?  Should not Obama, who Stevens represented abroad, present a wreath or something?  The family has a web page where they state that a ceremony was held October 16, 2012.  But there is no information anywhere about what happened at that ceremony or who was there.

Kwanzaa Is A Fraud of A "Holiday" Created With A Fascist Goal.  The man who created the holiday, Maulana Karenga was a convicted violent felon.  In 1971 Karenga was convicted of torturing two women who were members of US (United Slaves), a black nationalist cult he had founded. [...] I cannot see rational people wanting to observe a holiday created by such a sick violent man.  But this part of the Kwanzaa story is rarely mentioned by the MSM.

Did someone mention Kwanzaa?

Hillary Clinton Must Answer for Benghazi.  It's almost as if many in the mainstream press wish we could switch temporarily to a monarchy.  That way we could coronate Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and assure her role as our next leader and be done with it. [...] Four Americans lay dead because of these failures, and most of the media seems entirely comfortable with this being swept under the rug.

446 school age children shot in Chicago so far this year with strongest gun laws in country — media silent.  The cesspool known as Chicago probably has the toughest gun laws in the country, yet despite all the shootings, murders, and bloodshed, you never hear a peep about this from the corrupt state run media.  In Chicago, there have been 446 school age children shot in leftist utopia run by Rahm Emanuel and that produced Obama, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, etc.  62 school aged children have actually been killed by crazed nuts in Chicago so far this year with almost two weeks to go.  So why isn't this news worthy?

Climate Change Draft Undermines U.N.'s Claims.  [Scroll down]  While the IPCC works overtime to spin the Rawls leak, another headache has emerged for the group.  Figure 1.4 from the draft shows that the models used to predict warming have projected temperatures higher than the observed temperatures we've seen.  The chart also shows that observed temperatures, rather than climbing ever upward, are where they were 15 years ago.  Skeptic Anthony Watts calls the chart a bombshell.  The media have yawned.

Media Ignore Shootings in Chicago.  My guess is that the media's lack of interest in Chicago's ongoing murder spree has a lot to do with the lack of political upside in reporting on the story.  Because what's happening in Chicago can't in any way be blamed on Republicans, conservative ideas, or a lack of left-wing ideas, the media would prefer to pretend the murders aren't happening.  You see, the media can't blame the murders on a lack of gun control, because Chicago has the toughest gun control laws in the country.

This Is Awkward.  In the America as defined by American media, you know more about Sarah Palin's uterus than you do the Attorney General's criminal background.

How Obama's $60.4 billion Hurricane Sandy aid bill is stuffed with pork for NASA, museums, Alaska fisheries and more.  President Obama's proposed $60.4 billion federal aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy has been revealed stuffed with millions in spending for museums and NASA with portions sent as far from the Northeast's destruction as Alaska.  Now dubbed the 'Sandy scam' by its critics, only a portion of the federal funding goes directly to states and victims hardest hit by superstorm Sandy in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.

Virtually Unreported: CCW Holder Likely Prevented Larger Clackamas Mall Death Toll.  If certain aspects of stories relating to an incident of gun violence don't fit the template, they usually doesn't get reported at all.  But if such things somehow get some local exposure, they rarely escape into the broader national news environment.

New Report: Man-made Global Warming Is a FarceExtreme Weather Report 2012 was presented at the latest UN Climate Conference in Doha, Qatar, but the only press this landmark study received was when British politician and author Lord Christopher Monckton was kicked out of the conference for presenting it.

Instead of Asking Hillary Clinton About Benghazi, Barbara Walters Pushes Her to Run for President.  Add Barbara Walters to the list of journalists pushing for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for President in 2016.  For the third time now, Ms. Clinton has been featured on Barbara Walters's annual 10 Most Fascinating People special.  Given that Ms. Walters had a one-on-one sit-down interview with Clinton, it would seem logical that the topic of the Benghazi fiasco would come up.  It didn't [...]

Not News: Food Stamp Participation Jumped by Over 600,000 in September; Last Pre-Election Number Revised Up.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture released its latest report on food stamp program participation through September today [12/7/2012].  I received the email alerting me to the release at 5:17 p.m., so it seems reasonable to believe that USDA and the Barack Obama administration wanted the new data to get as little attention as possible.  If so, they have two probable reasons for wishing to minimize its impact.

Gold sales surge after Obama is re-elected.  Something appears to have snapped in the American psyche as the last 30 days have seen the largest physical gold sales on record.  Between the search volume for 'bulk ammo' and this, we fear something is afoot [...]

Federal Building Bombed, Tea Partier Not Charged, Media Ignores.  At 8:24 Friday morning — that's right, four days ago — in the small town of Casa Grande, Arizona, the local Social Security Administration office was rocked by an explosion that charred the back wall and door. [...] As someone who watches the media about as closely as anyone, why am I just learning about this now?  My guess is that the name of the suspected bomber might answer that question:  Abdullatif Aldosary, an Iraqi refugee.

Massive Anti-Obama Rally Planned for Inauguration Day.  Inspired by concerns of unemployment, the economy, Benghazi, and matters of foreign policy; organizers are promoting a "Massive Anti-Obama Rally @ Obama's Inauguration Day."  Their goal?  500,000+ protesters armed with signs identifying the reason for their participation in the rally.

Why I'm Enlisting In Andrew Breitbart's War:  [Scroll down]  So many times over the past several years, I've heard stories about how once-respected journalistic institutions — newspapers, wire services, television networks, even websites — refused to run articles because the reporters or editors were friends with the politicians they were going to write about.  The establishment media has become a part of the establishment class.

Iraqi Refugee Bombs AZ Social Security Office, MSM Remains Silent.  On Friday morning [11/30/2012], an Iraqi refugee used an improvised explosive device (IED) to bomb a Social Security office in Casa Grande AZ — the mainstream media remains silent.  The explosion took place before the office opened for the morning, so one was hurt.  But reports indicate the explosion "was heard and felt all over the area."

Rice Has Up to $600K Stake in Keystone Company.  Potential secretary of state candidate Susan Rice owns up to $600,000 of stock in the Canadian company pushing to build the Keystone XL Pipeline, according to her financial disclosure reports.  OnEarth reports that Rice, Obama's preferred candidate to succeed Hillary Clinton, owns millions of dollars of stock in oil companies, including TransCanada, the company behind the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline.

Chicago's Sandi and Jesse Jackson Jr. — the perfect "Machine" Democrats.  Sandi Jackson is a Chicago alderman, a member of one of the most corrupt criminal groups in the nation.  Thirty-two Chicago aldermen have been hauled off to prison over the past four decades.  Others have resigned in disgrace.  There is always some kind of federal investigation of the Chicago City Council going on.  The Chicago City Council is the overworld to the crime syndicate's underworld. [...] Chicago alderman make over one hundred thousand dollars a year.  They also have lavish expense accounts, Cadillac pensions, and Rolls Royce medical insurance.  There are other perks and pleasures they receive.

Republicans pounce on Obama, CBS News over unaired Libya remarks.  Republicans pounced Monday [11/5/2012] after CBS News released portions of a "60 Minutes" interview with President Obama that shows him hedging on whether to call the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, an act of terrorism.

Media Gave 'Pathetic' Benghazi Coverage To Aid Obama.  Last Friday [11/2/2012], Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times reporter Judith Miller and Kirsten Powers, a Daily Beast columnist, appeared on Fox News' "Happening Now" program to justifiably bash the mainstream media and its orchestrated suppression of coverage of the terrorist attack in Benghazi.  Neither is a charter member of the "vast right-wing conspiracy," but both roundly condemned the shameful and politically motivated actions of their colleagues.

Proof: Obama Refused to Call Benghazi 'Terror,' CBS Covered Up.  In an astonishing display of media malpractice, CBS News quietly released proof — two days before the election, far too late to reach the media and the public — that President Barack Obama lied to the public about the Benghazi attack, as well as about his later claim to have called the attack "terrorism" from the beginning.

CBS under fire for withholding Obama's Benghazi remarks.  CBS News is continuing to draw fire for withholding footage of a Sept. 12 interview with President Barack Obama in which he said it was "too early to tell" whether or not the previous day's attack in Benghazi, Libya, had been an act of terror.  That remark, which was not included in the "60 Minutes" package that first aired on Sept. 23, was also left out of a subsequent package that aired in the days following the second presidential debate [...]

Media Bias 101: Benghazi vs. Watergate and Iran-Contra.  What we're witnessing right now is how the media's liberal bias truly works.  Liberal journalists can be like men and women possessed when a Republican is in the Oval Office, but for a liberal Democrat, they are as compliant as lambs.  Being political partisans first and journalists second, they are now silently complicit when faced with Obama's scandal, one potentially more disturbing than Watergate and Iran-Contra combined.  After all, Americans died in Benghazi.

Stories the mainstream media missed.  [Scroll down]  Some coverage is no doubt there, but is it remotely like the Katrina or Haiti end-to-end saturation reporting?  And why not?  You could not miss [Anderson] Cooper in the aftermath of those disasters, but it is hard to find him now. [...] The Hill's A.B. Stoddard argued — on Fox, not CNN — that misery in the city and on the shore depresses Americans and thus turnout.

ABC and CBS Ignore Their Own Reporters As Benghazi Blackout Reaches 7 Days.  For the seventh night in a row, ABC's World News, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News refused to give one single second of coverage to the Obama administration's deceitful response to the terrorist attack on the US consulate in Benghazi on September 11.  According to the Media Research Center, the last time Benghazi was discussed on one of the flagship network evening news casts was the October 25 edition of CBS Evening News.

Fox News's Benghazi bombshell: Why haven't other media followed?  [T]he big guns of Beltway journalism have largely treated the Fox report with silence.  This non-development hasn't met with silence from the mainstream media's critics.  "ABC, CBS, NBC, The Washington Post, and the New York Times are so vested in the re-election of Barack Obama that they are deliberately spiking this huge story.  It's sickening," says Media Research Center President Brent Bozell.

The Media's Coverage of the Libya Attacks: From Slanted to Suppressed.  Americans of all political stripes were distressed by the September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador.  But the reaction of the national broadcast networks has been demonstrably and shamefully partisan from the beginning of this story.

Category 5 Media Bias On Display In Wake Of Sandy.  At an event for Hurricane Sandy victims, reporters pummel Mitt Romney to answer questions about FEMA.  This is the same press corps that refuses to ask President Obama a single tough question about Benghazi.

IBEW thugs strike again, turn away transformers delivered by non-union truckers.  Is your power still off?  Blame the IBEW!  For the second time since Huricane Sandy their unionista thugs put solidarity above customer service.

'No Red Tape'? New Jersey Turns Away Non-union Relief Crews.  How desperate is hurricane-ravaged New Jersey?  Not desperate enough to suspend a union monopoly that keeps the state in the bottom ten states for economic competitiveness (and #48 for business friendliness).  Relief crews from Alabama who were specifically called to New Jersey found themselves diverted to Long Island, NY after they arrived because they use non-union labor.  Alabama is a right-to-work state.

Nonunion Alabama crews turned away from Sandy recovery.  Crews from Decatur Utilities headed up there this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can't do any work there since they're not union employees.  The general manager of Decatur Utilities, Ray Hardin told Fox Business they were presented documents from the International Brotherhood of Electric Workers at a staging area in Virginia.  The documents stated they had to affiliate with a union to work, which the crews could not agree to.

More information about the constant strife in and around labor unions.

The mysterious media Benghazi bugout.  Where is the Benghazi media feeding frenzy?  I don't think there's a conspiracy at work.  Rather, I think journalists tend to act on their instincts.  And, collectively, the mainstream media's instincts run liberal.

Bozell Statement: Liberal Media Are Accessories to Benghazi Cover-up.  For the sixth night in a row, ABC World News, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News refused to give one single second of coverage to a Fox News report that the Obama Administration denied help to those attacked and killed by terrorists at the US consulate in Benghazi on September 11.

American Drones Armed And Ready To Attack Benghazi Terrorists — But Obama Refused To Give Order?  Perhaps no more glaring example of today's media blackout is when NBC's David Gregory cut off a guest who attempted to raise the Benghazi issue by promising to "get to that later" and then ignoring the issue for the rest of his Sunday morning [10/28/2012] news show.

Cindy Sheehan Was Cheered, Charles Woods Is Ignored.  During the 2004 presidential campaign, a media eager to deny George W. Bush a second term made Cindy Sheehan, who lost a son in Iraq, a national heroine and reported virtually her every word and move. [...] But nobody in a mainstream media eager to see President Obama get a second term is bringing the Benghazi debate to the White House doorstep.  On all the Sunday [10/28/2012] talk shows, when Benghazi was brought up, the moderator quickly changed subjects.

Benghazigate: What is being lied about, going unasked?  The media aren't just not asking questions about Benghazi; they're not even launching their normal defense of the administration, telling us that the White House did a great job, that all that could have been done, was done, that there was brilliant leadership, maneuvering and diplomacy at work, throughout.  No...  the press are just trying as hard as they can to talk about anything else.

Media Blackout: Aside from FOX, Sunday News Hosts Fail to Raise Benghazi.  The mainstream media's silence on the Benghazi disaster reached deafening levels on Sunday, as hosts of four out of the five major news shows — with the exception of Fox News Sunday — failed to raise the issue.  Only Bob Schieffer of CBS gave it serious consideration, and only after it was raised by Sen. John McCain.

Accomplice Media, Three Years Later.  [Scroll down]  Simply, the Obama administration is interested only in the politics and optics of the situation and is more often than not trying to create a political advantage on the corpses of American lives.  So, here we are again and as more information comes out about Obama's direct culpability with the deaths of Americans, the Accomplice Media continues to talk about anything but.

The October Surprise in 2010.  To its eternal moral discredit, the MSM are still refusing to connect the dots on the Libya story.  Whereas during Watergate or Iran-Contra, the MSM were eager to dig deep, as well as make speculative leaps as to administration culpability, in Benghazi-gate there is no similar interest; the big-gun investigative reporters — Bob Woodward, Seymour Hersh, Brian Ross — all seem to be sitting on the sidelines.

Let Them Hear Your Thunder America.  If you are increasingly upset over the Mainstream Media's refusal to honestly cover the Benghazi Massacre and cover-up in order to insulate Barack Obama and his failed administration from rightful blame, for the deaths of four Americans, I urge you now to let your feelings be known by those who control the networks.

Biden's Brother Awarded Lucrative Gov't Contracts: Media Silent Thus Far.  The rampant crony capitalism of the federal government simply can't be ignored anymore, but the media has made a habit out of selectively picking and choosing what it wants to report on with this administration.  This latest example may ultimately be ignored and denied too however, because it involves the brother of our current vice president.

Obama's Homeless.  There are more homeless right now, at this point in Barack Obama's presidency, than there were at this point in Reagan's presidency.  That's significant because the homeless, at this point under Reagan, were used by liberals to torpedo Reagan's reelection bid.  And yet, today, liberals are completely silent about the homeless under Obama.  Liberals have not turned the homeless into a propaganda issue today, as they did in the 1980s.

Media Suddenly Muted on Jobless Claims.  This week, jobless claims have soared to 388,000 — a four-month high. NPR explained, correctly, that both changes were largely the result of the fact that California failed to process all of its jobless claims last week and therefore submitted an incomplete report that was rectified this week.  But it did not bother to revisit its cheerleading from the week before, nor did it try to imply broader conclusions about the direction of the economy under Obama.

The Media's Law of Silent Protests.  If 150 members of the Tea Party protest at an Obama fundraiser and the press fail to report it, was the Tea Party ever really there? [...] As most AT readers know, the press coverage those first few years was scant and slanted.  The Tea Party was consistently portrayed as racist, anti-government radicals who were mostly white, militant, gun-toting, Bible-slapping, knuckle-dragging, toothless mental midgets.

Obama Owns Shares in Chinese Company.  After Mitt Romney promised to aggressively crackdown against Chinese companies that cheat American businesses, the New York Times, along with other mainstream media organizations, have tried to paint Mitt Romney as a hypocrite by digging up companies in which Bain Capital has a stake.  They conveniently ignoring that President Barack Obama also has investments in some of the exact same Chinese companies.

Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released.  The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week.  The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.  This means that the 'plateau' or 'pause' in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996.  Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.

Did you hear about the 1,500 preachers breaking the law?  The reason you didn't is that most of the lawbreakers minister to fundamentalist, evangelical or other conservative Protestant congregations and espouse political views supporting traditional notions of marriage, family and patriotism.  Think Franklin Graham.  Had they instead been devotees of radical liberation theology preaching the anti-war, anti-American nostrums of the far Left — think Jeremiah Wright — their law-breaking sermons would have been front-page news across the country.

The Obama Tapes That Can Bring Romney Victory.  [Scroll down]  There's also a stunning tape of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, interviewed for Edward Klein's book The Amateur, claiming that the 2008 Obama campaign offered him a bribe to stay quiet.  Yet that bombshell from Wright, who feels betrayed by Obama and is clearly eager to damage him, has been disregarded by Romney and his surrogates and allowed to fade into obscurity by the conservative media outlets that reported it.  Is everyone asleep?

Did someone mention Jeremiah Wright?

I am furious over this.  Where is the American media that have failed in their responsibility to be the watch dog of irresponsible and illegal government activities?  They are missing in action and thereby have failed in their responsibility not only to the people of America but also to the Republic that entrusted them with watching over it.  Credit surely must be given to Univision for its in-depth and comprehensive reporting on a disastrous, ill-conceived and probably illegal program.

Return of the Weak Horse.  Terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Libya, killed four Americans, tore down the American flag, and replaced it with an al-Qaeda flag.  Will someone finally ask the president what he plans to do about it?

ABC Removes Romney's Opening Speech from Debate Transcript.  ABC News, on its website that claims it represents the whole transcript of last Wednesday's debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, decided that they would help Obama out once again.  This time, they did it by completely removing Romney's opening statement.

Stand Down Obama and Biden, Stand Down.  The latest news coming out about the murder of our ambassador and three other brave Americans in Ben Ghazi is so horrifying and shocking I can take no pleasure in writing about it.  It's still largely unreported by the legacy media.  Fox News has been a leader and there's been some coverage at CNN by Anderson Cooper, but PBS and the alphabets have been doing their best to keep from you the incompetence, treachery and outrageous behavior of the President, Vice President, Secretaries of State and Defense.

A Scandal Worse Than Watergate Is Being Covered Up By the Media.  [Scroll down]  There is an ongoing State Department cover-up to excuse the reason why it did not provide ample security for Ambassador Stevens before he was viciously murdered with three other Americans in Libya.  His diary was located by CNN who reported that Stevens had viable concerns about Al-Qaeda activity in the area and that he believed he was on its hit-list.

NBC Dismisses Obama Video as Old News, Edits Out Jeremiah Wright Comments.  In a stunning omission on Wednesday's NBC Today, brief coverage of a 2007 video of Barack Obama completely ignored the then-Senator praising his controversial pastor Jeremiah Wright as a "great leader, not just in Chicago, but all across the country."

D'Souza Can't Quite Accept the Real Obama.  [Scroll down]  The major media have used their power to suppress the truth about Obama.  A researcher like [Dinesh] D'Souza has to work around them. [...] More troubling is the willingness of D'Souza and his colleagues in the established conservative media to join in the suppression.  For the most part, they will not touch issues like Obama's Social Security number, the birth certificate, his passport and travel inconsistencies, his dubious parentage, his radical affiliations, his school records, or the authorship question.  More often than not, they ridicule those who raise these issues, often without knowing what the issues are.

Darrell Issa Does the Work American Reporters Won't Do.  Ever since the terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, the Obama administration has been stalling, obfuscating and outright lying in order to avoid taking responsibility for the deaths of four Americans, including our ambassador.  To a considerable degree, they have gotten away with that strategy.  But Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, has stepped into the breach.  Issa's committee has been approached by whistle-blowers within the State Department, and the stories they tell about the department's malfeasance are shocking.

Mark Levin: Media Racist For Not Reporting Fast & Furious.  "It's my contention right now that these white, liberal media outlets are racist based on the priorities of what they cover and what they don't cover."  So said conservative talk radio host Mark Levin in Monday's opening monologue about the media's refusal to cover Mexican homicides associated with the Obama administration's failed "Fast and Furious" program as well as countless black murders in Chicago.

A Guide to the Obama Administration's Five Major Scandals for Mainstream Media Dummies.  Five big scandals to chew on, any one of which have the potential to bring down a president.  A couple of them are easily bigger and juicier than Watergate.  A couple even have body counts.  A couple could be linked together to show a pattern of lawless behavior.  Get to work, intrepid reporter.  You don't need Deep Throat, and you don't need to be Woodward or Bernstein.  You just need to follow up on any one of these five massive scandals and report them fully in the mainstream media.  I should advise you, you won't win any Pulitzers and you'll probably get fired.  But you just might save your country.

Muslim Protests At US Embassies Continue, Media Ignores.  We know that the mainstream media is in the tank for President Obama.  It took them two full weeks to turn their attention to the inconsistencies in the Obama administration's Libya cover story.  So it's no surprise to find that they're not covering continuing turmoil in the Muslim world.  At all.

Obama Campaign: Birth Control Costs $18,000.  If anything as embarrassing as [this] occurred at a Republican presidential contender's website, including the follow-up ridicule by the opposition, the press would never be able to resist covering it.

FBI Directive: Membership in a Known Terrorist Group Is Irrelevant.  Since March of this year, FBI agents have been directed not to treat individuals associated with terrorist groups as potential threats to the nation.  The fact that a terrorism suspect is associated with a terrorist group means nothing, according to the FBI document, "Guiding Principles: Touchstone Document on Training."  The "touchstone" document, dated March of this year, is available online but hasn't been reported on by major media outlets.

'Slander' and free speech are one and the same.  Who said the following:  "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."  Iran's Ahmadinejad?  Egypt's Morsi?  Some little-known, fatwa-flinging cleric increasing the bounty on Salman Rushdie's head?  None of the above.  The words are President Obama's, and he spoke them this week to the U.N. General Assembly.  No Big Media outlet reported this stunning pronouncement.

Where are all the separation of church and state people now?

Terrorist? Don't Ask, Don't Tell.  FBI agents aren't allowed to treat individuals associated with terrorist groups as potential threats to the nation, according to a startling, newly discovered FBI directive.  The fact that a terrorism suspect is associated with a terrorist group means nothing, according to the FBI document, "Guiding Principles: Touchstone Document on Training."  The "touchstone" document, dated March of this year, is available online but hasn't been reported on by major media outlets.

Why is Joe Scarborough ignoring Obama's Libya scandal?  Joe Scarborough is not only a Republican, he's a Republican with an entire cable news morning show named after him; a show I'm repeatedly told influences the mainstream media.  And yet, even as the Libya scandal breaks wide open across New Media, even as we discover more and more incontrovertible evidence proving the Obama Administration engaged in an unconscionable cover up that included trotting a UN Ambassador out on all the Sunday shows to tell a fairy tale our government knew wasn't true — on Scarborough's own show Friday morning [9/28/2012], you would never know this happened.

Barack Obama's Terrorist Attack Cover-Up.  It is astounding that what really happened in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 has been so thoroughly buried by the mainstream media.

More about the Benghazi terrorist attack.

Media ignore Obama attack on 'those who slander the Prophet of Islam'.  President Obama spoke to the UN Tuesday, but what he had to say depended on the media outlet reporting it. [...] It was a 4,000-word speech.  Obama covered a lot of ground.  But the ground the major media covered conveniently left out was the most provocative line of the entire speech.  The president told the UN that the "future must not belong" to a series of people including "corrupt" leaders and those who "bully women."  But one line from that list stood out.  "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."  That line appeared almost nowhere in the old media where Obama's supposed defense of free speech dominated.

Giuliani Accuses Obama Admin. Of Covering Up Libya Attacks: 'This Is A Major Scandal'.  Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani accused the administration of President Barack Obama of covering up the events relating to the attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya which resulted in the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.  Giuliani called the administration's action a "scandal" and said the U.S. media is a "disgrace" for not reporting on it.

CBS Doesn't Air Obama Admitting Mistakes in Campaign Ads.  Tonight, CBS aired a 60 Minutes interview with President Obama.  But curiously enough, the news magazine show did not air a clip of Obama admitting to interviewer Steve Kroft that some of his campaign ads contain mistakes and that some even "go overboard."  60 Minutes did, however, post the clip online.

Media Blackout on Military Disaster on Obama's Watch.  It happened on September 14, 2012, northwest of the city of Lashkar Gah in southern Afghanistan.  A team of fewer than two dozen Taliban fighters attacked the USMC's massive Camp Bastion base there, killing VMA-211 squadron commander Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and destroying or permanently disabling eight of the ten top-of-the-line harrier AV-8B attack aircraft stationed under him.  Out of production for more than a decade, these aircraft can never be replaced.  By the time the smoke cleared, roughly 7% of the total harrier fleet operated by the USMC had been wiped out on a single day by a small force of ground combatants whose most potent weapon was the suicide vest, one of which was used to breach the camp's perimeter fence.

Taliban Attack Destroys Six Harrier Jets at 180 Million Dollar Cost.  This is yet another disaster in Obama's failed war in Afghanistan and it also gives the lie to the notion that these worldwide coordinated attacks timed at around September 11 were due to popular outrage because of a movie.  The media talking heads still spewing that nonsense in their way on free speech are engaging in criminally irresponsible reporting and are covering up the real scope of events.

Obama in 1998: "I actually believe in redistribution".  At an October 19, 1998 conference at Loyola University, Barack Obama spoke against "propaganda" that said government doesn't work and the need to "pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution."

Distinct Visions: Obama, 1998, Espouses 'Redistribution'.  In a newly-discovered video, Barack Obama, at a 1998 conference at Loyola University in Chicago, said he believed in "redistribution" to "make sure that everybody's got a shot."  Obama said the "notion government action can be effective" needed to be resuscitated and conceded that the failures of the Chicago Housing Authority and the Chicago public school system made people less inclined to have faith in government.

Andrea Mitchell: NBC Hasn't "Authenticated" Obama Redistribution Clip, Won't Air.  On her MSNBC program this afternoon [9/19/2012], NBC News' Andrea Mitchell said the network would not air the clip of then-State Senator Barack Obama endorsing redistribution in 1988 because the network could not "authenticate" the clip.

Obama's Late Night Budget Bluster.  In an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, President Barack Obama suggested that most of the country's debt was accumulated under George W. Bush, pretended that he has offered a solution to these problems, said that he does not know the total U.S. national debt, and claimed that the debt is not a short-term concern for the country.  It was one of the most dishonest performances from this president in recent memory, and yet it has generated virtually no attention from a mainstream media.

More Americans now commit suicide than are killed in car crashes as miserable economy takes its toll.  Suicide is the cause of more deaths than car crashes, according to an alarming new study.  The number of people who commit suicide in the U.S. has drastically increased while deaths from car accidents have dropped, making suicide the leading cause of injury death.

How Obama torched our standing in the Arab world:  The reality, which the media shrinks from telling, is that during the past three years regard for our country has dropped precipitously around the world — and it has nothing to do with an anti-Muslim film.  The Pew organization tells us that the number of people in Muslim countries who hold favorable views towards the US stood at 15% in June — down from 25% when President Obama took office.

Welfare Reform as We Knew It.  It's hard to remember now, but this summer Mitt Romney opened a useful debate about "dependency" — concerning President Obama's regulation to rewrite the 1996 welfare reform.  Democrats deny any such intent, but as early as this week the House plans to hold a vote to override the new rule.  So it's a good moment to dissect what the Administration is really trying to do, because in this case Mr. Romney is right:  The Administration has made welfare's work requirements far weaker, and for ideological reasons that the press corps has failed to report.

The Obama Schedule.  According to the Government Accountability Institute, Obama has spent more time golfing than in economic meetings of any kind and Obama has skipped more than half of his intelligence briefings.

Another absurd manufactured controversy.  As a huge portion of the world riots against the United States, the President will sit down with David Letterman and party with Jay-Z, Beyonce and other millionaire donors tonight at major fundraisers.  And the media will focus on something Mitt Romney said at a fundraiser back in May.  Why?  Because the alternative would be to report on the aforementioned stories that make the President look bad.  And no one in the "objective" media wants that.

Reporters haven't asked about Sebelius breaking law in W.H. briefings.  Reporters covering the White House don't seem to have many questions about Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who was last week found in violation of federal law against engaging in political activity while on the job.

Germany's new "renewable" energy policy.  It is amazing how biased the international media is when it comes to reporting on energy generation, specifically electricity.  In mid-August, Germany opened a new 2200 MW coal-fired power station near Cologne, and virtually not a word has been said about it.  This dearth of reporting is even more surprising when one considers that Germany has said building new coal plants is necessary because electricity produced by wind and solar has turned out to be unaffordably expensive and unreliable.

The Real Culprits.  Some conservative pundits suggest that mainstream journalists are simply a bit on the lazy side.  Indeed, sometimes they are lazy — very lazy.  For instance, their indolence was prominently on display when Juanita Broaddrick accused Bill Clinton of rape, but the media resolutely refused to bestir itself.  The journalistic community was positively comatose faced with Hillary Clinton's mysterious cattle futures winnings.  It declared that the deal was so diabolically clever that no human intelligence could be expected to make heads or tails of it, and hence the public would be well-advised to give the first lady the benefit of the doubt and forget about the whole thing.

Mainstream Media Ignoring Disaffected, Disillusioned Obama 2008 Voters.  President Barack Obama's approval ratings have plummeted largely because Democrats and independents who fell for his "hope and change" rhetoric in 2008 have now abandoned him and his false promises.  But the mainstream media is not covering this, once again protecting their favored candidate through omissions, treating Obama with kid gloves.

Obama in the Buff.  [President Obama's] promises to create 5 million green energy jobs have come to nothing, as has his pledge to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term, but who in the national media is pointing that out?

Strictly a local problem?  A candidate for Congress drops out the race because of a scandal and the story goes no further than the local section of the Washington Post.  I suppose it's an improvement that the Democrat is labeled as such in both the headline and the lead paragraph but notice this.  Her wrongdoing is something the media insists is not a real problem — vote fraud.

Study: Recovery For Burger-Flippers Only.  According to new analysis of unemployment data by the National Employment Law Project, while 60 percent of the jobs lost during the 2008-2009 financial crisis were in middle income occupations, the vast majority — 58 percent — of jobs created under President Obama are low-wage.  Those jobs include "retail sales, food preparation, home health and customer service."

Media Smothers News of Romney's Commanding Lead With Independents.  Even as the most recent polls show Obama's convention bounce fading (as expected), that doesn't mean our dishonest and corrupt media is going to crawl off the bandwagon they crafted over the weekend proclaiming Obama's win as inevitable.

How the Financial Collapse Would Happen in an Obama Second Term.  The stakes in the coming election could not be higher.  While crystal ball-gazing always is hazardous, the trail America's economy would follow, should President Obama's re-election effort succeed, has already been blazed.  Naturally, the media will tell you none of this.

Media Blackout: GAO Says Obama's Welfare Waivers Illegal.  On Sept. 4, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) made a startling assertion saying that Obama circumvented the law when he summarily waived the work requirements in the welfare law.  Perhaps not as shocking, few news outlets seem interested in the story.

The Audacity of Cronyism.  It's hard to know which is worse:  the arrogance of the Obama administration in assuming that its White House staffers can get away with anything, or the apathy of the media in not holding those staffers accountable.  Actually, let's scratch the word "apathy" and call it what it really is:  abjectness.  The media have been abject in their willingness, even eagerness, to serve the political interests of this administration and its re-election effort.

Media Madness, and the Reckoning.  Last week a line was crossed, and full blown insanity manifested itself in the formerly-mainstream media. [...] Even if Artur Davis weren't black, how is it a non-story, when the guy who seconded Obama's nomination ends up with a prime time spot on the GOP Convention stage?

The Ammo Controversy.  Several facets of the government have recently purchased a variety of ammunition in large quantities.  In total, more than 1.2 billion rounds of ammunition was ordered between April and August of 2012.  This ammunition primarily consisted of .223 ammunition, which is used in military style weapons such as AR-15s or M16s.  The largest purchase of ammunition was placed by the Department of Homeland Security.  However, the amounts of ammunition were redacted in a later version of the purchase order.  Additional purchases were made by the Social Security Administration and the National Weather Service.

Anti-Obama Filmmaker Calls MSNBC 'Cowards'.  In a video interview, anti-Obama filmmaker and author Dinesh D'Souza told The Hollywood Reporter that MSNBC and other media outlets were "cowards" because they would not acknowledge his new documentary 2016: Obama's America, despite the film's emergence this last week in the Top Ten.

Taxi Driver 2: Fauxcahontas Boogaloo.  Don't worry, national news.  You don't have to cover this one.  The guy who got assaulted is just a Republican.

Why Is The Press Ignoring The Success Of '2016'?  So far, "2016" has taken in more than $9.3 million, which puts it easily within reach of becoming one of the top five highest-grossing political documentaries of all time.  And, if anything, the movie is just getting started.  Last weekend, it averaged nearly $6,000 per screen, which is higher than when it was showing in just 62 theaters a couple weeks ago.  But aside from a few grudging news stories about the weekend box office take and a smattering of predictably critical reviews, the media are largely turning a studied blind eye to the film.

America's Historic Cokehead President.  Does it bother you that the most powerful man on the planet was a longtime drug user?  Does it bother you that he has attempted to use his drug abuse to gain credibility with young Americans?  Does it bother you that his acknowledgment of having been a serious drug user has been given a pass in the news media? [...] Barack Obama is the first U.S. president to admit to cocaine abuse, to describe it in a manner designed to impress the young, and to get away with it.  It's historic.

A blogger was dragged off to a mental ward because of his Facebook posts.  Exactly what you'd expect in North Korea, China, or Cuba.
'Outraged' judge frees veteran Raub from Virginia psych ward.  [Scroll down]  His saga began Aug. 16.  That's when [Brandon] Raub was taken into custody at his Richmond home by FBI and Secret Service agents and Chesterfield County Police.  He was not charged with a crime, yet he was handcuffed and placed in the back of a police vehicle.  From there, Mr. Raub was taken to a police station and then to the John Randolph Medical Facility in Hopewell, Va., for a psychiatric evaluation.  He was never formally arrested or charged with a crime, Mr. Whitehead said.  "He was in his underwear, in his living room, he sees a group of police, FBI agents walking up, he talks with them, he's asked about some Facebook postings, they handcuff him," Mr. Whitehead said.

There is more about Brandon Raub on this page.

Debate Questions Obama Won't Be Asked.  If you could submit just one question to be asked of President Obama during a televised presidential debate, what would it be?  Once you have formulated your best idea, ask yourself this:  do you think any of this year's line-up of debate hosts and moderators would ever actually ask your question, as you framed it? [...] With the most concealed and protected president of modern times, one could literally go on all day with these questions, each one as vital as the last:  about drugs, about Fast and Furious, about whispering promises of post-election accommodation to a Russian president, about his hidden university career and transcripts, and on and on.

The Cowardly Media Reporting On Hate Crimes.  Isn't it curious that the media (with the exception of ABC and FoxNews) refuses to cover a hate crime shooting of a victim at a conservative pro-life organization in Washington, DC if the perpetrator is a leftwing zealot? [...] This craven media only recognizes hate crimes committed by the right, whether real or imaginary.  The left ones will always be given a pass.

Cornyn demands answers from Pentagon about Russian sub in the Gulf.  The story about a Russian sub cruising for several weeks undetected in the Gulf of Mexico appeared in the Washington Free Beacon. [...] It was written by respected national security writer Bill Gertz and, for obvious reasons, never made it into the mainstream press.

Who Does The Government Intend To Shoot?  The Social Security Administration (SSA) confirms that it is purchasing 174 thousand rounds of hollow point bullets to be delivered to 41 locations in major cities across the U.S.  No one has yet said what the purpose of these purchases is, though we are led to believe that they will be used only in an emergency to counteract and control civil unrest.  Those against whom the hollow point bullets are to be used — those causing the civil unrest — must be American citizens; since the SSA has never been used overseas to help foreign countries maintain control of their citizens. [...] If this were only a one time order of ammunition, it could easily be dismissed.  But there is a pattern here.  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has ordered 46,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition.

See no evil.  Our news media, especially as seen and heard during nationally broadcasted news, engages in highly selective story-choosing, story-telling and subsequent indignations and outrages that are first weighed on political scales.  Early this month a spectacular story was given tiny attention, and none, as far as I watched, on nightly national newscasts.

The Biggest D.C. Spy Scandal You Haven't Heard About (Part One).  Why has the story of a 20-year illegal infiltration of D.C. on behalf of Pakistani intelligence gone unnoticed?

Media blackout on Obama docs baffles Arpaio posse.  Detective Michael Zullo is surprised to say the least.  He is chief investigator for Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Cold Case Posse looking into the authenticity of President Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate.  At a recent press conference, he presented his evidence, which he says points to forgery.  He expected the media to follow up with questions about the evidence.  What he got was unabashed hostility. [...] Nearly a month has passed since a July 17 press conference where Mr. Zullo presented evidence which he says proves that Mr. Obama's long-form birth certificate is a fraud.  "They didn't pick up on anything.  They just don't want to know about this," he said.
[Emphasis added.]

Most Transparent Administration Hasn't Fielded Question from WH Press in Seven Weeks.  Despite giving numerous interviews while overseas, the press complained about limited access to Mitt Romney while he traveled to England, Poland, and Israel.  That same media hasn't so much as whispered after President Obama hasn't answered a single question from the White House pool for seven weeks.

A national media that retains its honour.  George Obama has been mentioned, in passing, by the U.S. legacy media, but the U.K. Mail displayed 22 photos, several of George Obama that may have never appeared in U.S. outlets.  In fact, the U.S. media has paid more attention to Obama's dog, than to his "slumdog" brother, George.  Although they're not known as "conservative" news outlets, the U.K. papers have made their presence felt on the American political scene.  When addressing the U.S. political scene, they spin less.

Networks Continue Blackout on Romney-Killed-My-Wife Ad.  All three evening newscasts on Wednesday [8/8/2012] continued to ignore a super PAC ad by top Obama supporters that accuses Mitt Romney of, essentially, killing a woman.  At the same time, CBS and NBC amplified the Obama administration's "war on women" talking point, playing up attacks from Sandra Fluke, who previously tangled with Rush Limbaugh over contraception.

MSM ignores Soptic ad, the back story of which continues to change.  Credit where credit is due.  And right now credit is due to the normally unfair and imbalanced CNN, which Matt Hadro of Newsbusters reports has continued its frank coverage of "a nasty and misleading Obama super PAC ad that ABC, CBS, and NBC entirely ignored as of Wednesday night."

Mainstream Media Blacks Out Chick-fil-A Story?  Wednesday was Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, and Americans flocked to the fast food restaurant in response to criticism of COO Dan Cathy's opposition to same-sex marriage (as well as threats from the mayors of some major cities).  The photos of long lines and traffic jams reveal the extent of the restaurant's support — for some it's about traditional values and for others it's about freedom of religious exercise and speech in the face of government intimidation.

CBS Evening News Ignores Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day.  On Aug. 1, CBS Evening News ignored the massive crowds that turned out that day at Chick-Fil-A restaurants around the nation in support of traditional marriage, free speech, or simply tasty fast food.  ABC and NBC, by contrast, covered "Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day" with full and surprisingly respectful reports on their evening newscasts.  The August 1 episode of CBS Evening News completely failed to mention the massive crowds at Chick-Fil-A restaurants across the country.  And it's not as though the network was unaware of it.

More about the left-wing attack on Chick-Fil-A.

Why Obama Thought Going Toxic Was a No-Lose Strategy.  Obama may be enamored of false flag operations.  In Fast and Furious, the Obama administration allowed Mexican cartel members to buy automatic weapons.  The objective was to make it appear, as Hillary Clinton had previously said, that the violence in Mexico was the result of liberal gun policies in America, thereby providing a rationale for restricting the rights of American gun owners.  In the latest case, a PAC supporting Obama has run a horrendously evil ad.  Obama had every reason to believe that his connection to the ad would be hidden by the media because the media has refused to report on what really happened in Fast and Furious.

More about the Fast and Furious scandal.

Obama's Ultimate Cover-up.  It's true that communism is not perceived as being as much of a threat as it used to be, but can you imagine what the reaction might be among the American people, even now, if they were told by the major papers and network news programs that a top Communist Party operative molded their President's views on economic, foreign policy and cultural issues?  This is the story that has to be suppressed at any cost, four years later during a critical election year.

U.S. Temperature trends show a spurious doubling due to NOAA station siting problems and post measurement adjustments.  [Scroll down]  Using Leroy 2010 methods, the Watts et al 2012 paper, which studies several aspects of USHCN siting issues and data adjustments, concludes that:  ["]These factors, combined with station siting issues, have led to a spurious doubling of U.S. mean temperature trends in the 30 year data period covered by the study from 1979 - 2008.["]

The Editor says...
This proves that NOAA has been making inaccurate temperature measurements for years, which is probably the main reason everybody thinks "global warming" has taken place.  NASA has already been caught doing the same thing.  Did you hear about it on television?  Probably not.

More about inaccurate temperature measurements.

Terrorist Invited To White House.  Dear Leader invited a known terrorist, Hani Nour Eldin, into the White House this past April, and this story got almost no media attention.  It's another reason why Michelle Bachmann is requesting background checks on the people inside our government who may have ties to terrorists.  By law, a terrorist cannot get a visa and come into the U.S.A., but Eldin did, and was INVITED.  Why isn't the media all over this story?

An interview with Colin Flaherty:
White Girl Bleed a Lot.  [Scroll down slowly]  I documented hundreds of examples in more than 70 cities.  And here is what happens.  I hear about a riot or a mob and I check it out and learn that it was a large group of black people creating havoc.  So I write the details.  In the course of reporting it, or after the story comes out, I almost always hear:  "That's been happening here a long time."  But reporters are afraid to write about it.  City officials are afraid to combat it, or call it by its name.  So it goes on.

More about black mobs.

The Artificial Eight Percent Unemployment Rate is Immaterial.  Historically a sitting president's chances for reelection are nil when the unemployment rate exceeds the eight percent threshold.  More significant to the present situation however is the fact that the ostensible improvement in the nation's employment debacle is clearly contrived.  The books are being juggled to a degree that makes Enron accounting look downright virtuous.  Yet nowhere among the nightly news anchors is it suggested that such manipulations coming from the highest levels of the federal government might be a breach of the peoples' trust, or more accurately, evidence of a political strategy based on total deceit.

What the Media Won't Say about Frank Marshall Davis.  [Scroll down]  The reason I mention the poetry at all is to shed light on the young Obama's relationship with Davis, his Hawaiian mentor.  In my early writing on Obama's literary talents, I took him at his word that he wrote some "very bad poetry" and largely ignored the two radically different poems he submitted as an Occidental College undergraduate, the cringe-worthy "Underground" and the more complex "Pop."  It was my co-conspirator Don Wilkie who prompted me to take another look at the latter poem.  "I have read 'Pop' now maybe 20 or 30 times," Wilkie wrote me a few years back, "and I think it is about Obama telling us that 'Pop' really is, his pop."  At the time, all serious critics were insisting that the subject of "Pop" was Obama's grandfather Stan Dunham, a man whom Obama called "Gramps."  On the name alone, this interpretation made no sense.

The Commie's Commie.  [Scroll down]  [Paul] Kengor isn't an investigative reporter, so he steers clear of those radioactive issues about whether Frank is really Obama's father, or about where the president was actually born and what citizenship he holds, or may have held, throughout his chaotic childhood.  But — happily for the reader — Kengor devotes a few pages to utterly destroying the reputations of those liberal journalists and fawning Obama biographers who do claim to be investigative journalists, and who twisted themselves into pretzels to avoid noticing that Obama's mentor was a Communist.

Ten Pieces of Bad Economic News the Media's Covering Up.  Except for number ten, all the bad economic news below came out this week — much of it today [7/19/2012].  And this explains why the corrupt media is making all of our eyes glaze over as they enter day 11,485 of demanding Romney release his tax returns and Bain-Bain-Bain.  By focusing on nonsense and on Romney, the media can protect Obama from what you see below — which is an economy and Americans in very real trouble.

Top Ten Things Obama Has Not Released. [#5] The Khalidi tape. In 2003, Obama attended a party for his good friend, the radical Palestinian academic Rashid Khalidi.  The event featured incendiary anti-Israel rhetoric.  The LA Times broke the story, but has refused to release the tape — and so has Obama.

Reward: $100,000 for Khalidi Tape.  Breitbart News is doubling its reward — to $100,000 — for one of the missing pieces of Barack Obama's past, which may be the key to understanding his collapsing Middle East policy:  the "Khalidi tape," a video kept under wraps by the Los Angeles Times since April 2008.  The Khalidi tape shows Obama at a 2003 farewell party for radical Palestinian academic and activist Rashid Khalidi, and reportedly features vitriolic anti-Israel rhetoric.

Khalidi Tape Cover Up: Media 'Selectively Edits' Its Ethical Standards.  [W]hen it comes to protecting Barack Obama, the corrupt media doesn't get all that wrapped up in the details of what is and isn't legal or ethical.  The Romney video is news; it's a revealing moment from The Man Who Might Be President, and as a result we're entering day four of the super-loop the media's put the video on across every news outlet in America.

The truth behind the 'Khalidi video' and why it's not for sale.  [Scroll down]  In the case of the Khalidi video, the unnamed source agreed to share the illuminating bit of video evidence with [Peter] Wallsten, but only with the understanding that the reporter could not reproduce or rebroadcast the images.  The journalist had to make a decision:  Do I agree to that condition and get to see evidence that no other reporter has seen of Obama meeting with Palestinian Americans?

Bias alert:
After smearing all MSM-bypassing conservatives as "the political fringe", the LA Times offers the anemic rationalization that it will not release this damaging video, not because it would end Barack H. Obama's political career, but because the LA Times would lose at least one source of timely tips for one of its reporters.  Obviously, the needs of the newspaper come first.

LA Times: Why We Won't Release The Khalidi Video.  This week, Breitbart News offered a $100,000 reward to anyone who produced the infamous 2003 tapes of Barack Obama at an event honoring Palestinian anti-Israel radical Rashid Khalidi.  And today, James Rainey of the Los Angeles Times took to his keyboard today to write a diatribe defending the Times' refusal to make public those tapes.  While Rainey gives several justifications for not releasing the tape itself — guarding the source of the tape being the most prevalent — he offers no justification for why the Times refuses to offer even a complete transcript of that evening's events.

Your Guide to Sleazy Democratic Party-Backed Banks.  The fat-cat narrative attacks on Republicans won't go away by making nice with the White House — or by relying on Beltway journalists to drop their double standards and vet the president's own bad bank entanglements.  Indeed, The New York Times admitted this week that their staff and other political journalists from every major media outlet submit their work to the White House for unprecedented review, editing and "veto power."

Are Race Riots News?  Ignoring racial violence only guarantees that it will get worse.  The Chicago Tribune has publicly rationalized its filtering out of any racial identification of attackers and their victims, even though the media do not hesitate to mention race when decrying statistical disparities in arrest or imprisonment rates.  Such mob attacks have become so frequent in Chicago that officials promoting conventions there have recently complained to the mayor that the city is going to lose business if such widespread violence is not brought under control.

Media Fail: Chevy Volt Makes NO Money, Costs Taxpayers Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars Per Car.  The President is running in large part on the bailout's $30+ billion loss, uber-failed "success."  And the Press is acting as his stenographers.  An epitome of this bailout nightmare mess is the electric absurdity that is the Chevrolet Volt.  The Press is at every turn covering up — rather than covering — the serial failures of President Obama's signature vehicle.  The Press has failed to mention at least five Volt fires, myopically focusing on the one the Obama Administration hand-selected for attention.  The Press has failed to mention that the Volt fire problem remains unsolved.

The price of gold has been manipulated.  The ball of half-truths and downright lies which have surrounded the issue for a long time is beginning to unspool in an issue internet activists kept alive long before it was acknowledged by the mainstream media.  People ask why the issue is important at a time of naked market manipulation of the Libor rate.  The answer is simple:  the Libor manipulation scandal can be seen as the thin end of the wedge in terms of government market manipulation.  Although Libor manipulation affects the interest rates we pay on all number of credit products, gold market manipulation is more serious still.

Time to Storm Obama and Washington D.C.?  The final assault on non-Sunni Islam will be against Iran ... and the Obama campaign against this terrorist country (to replace it with another terrorist group ... the one to which Obama belongs) is well underway.  Then, the traitor and dictator-in-chief will have nothing to stop him from moving on Israel.  The Final World War may be no more than a few weeks or months away.  As if they won't be affected, the wholly-owned media reports virtually nothing on this.

Google Shopping Site Bans Guns, Ammo as Unsafe for Families.  Google has announced a ban on firearms, ammunition, and other items its censors deem to be unsafe from its new Google Shopping site, initiated in early June.  While most major U.S. news organs appeared to have missed or ignored the announcement, which Google made in late May, foreign newspapers were all over it.

The biggest financial fraud in history receives scant media attention.  We are now finding out that the entire system has been rigged, enriching the "elect" and financially looting the rest.  If you are reading this, you have been robbed, although the corporate media remains silent about who robbed you, how it was done, and which government and non-government officials were complicit and benefited.  Why?  Perhaps the most compelling reason is that when the "average" person learns the depths at which corruption exists between the various banks, governments and government officials, there will be a revolution like the world has never seen.

Worst TB outbreak in 20 years kept secret.  The CDC officer had a serious warning for Florida health officials in April:  A tuberculosis outbreak in Jacksonville was one of the worst his group had investigated in 20 years.  Linked to 13 deaths and 99 illnesses, including six children, it would require concerted action to stop.  That report had been penned on April 5, exactly nine days after Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed the bill that shrank the Department of Health and required the closure of the A.G. Holley State Hospital in Lantana, where tough tuberculosis cases have been treated for more than 60 years.

100 Maj. Hasans Inside Military?  The FBI is investigating more than 100 Muslim soldiers and military contractors with the potential to carry out Fort Hood-style attacks.  The administration has kept a lid on the growing threat.  It's covering up the truth about an alarmingly widespread Islamist penetration of the military.  The dangerous fifth column was discovered more than two years after Army Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire on fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, killing 13 and wounding 29.

Obama's subsidies: Private profit, public risk.  President Obama, picking up where President Bush left off, is quietly expanding the federal government's role as the financier of America's economy.  A top Obama export official told reporters recently that the administration is preparing "a paper" to lay out when the U.S. government can use export-subsidy programs to promote even domestic sales.  Obama plans to use the Export-Import Bank — a federal agency that gives taxpayer-backed loans and loan guarantees to foreign buyers who buy American goods — to subsidize U.S. manufacturers even when they are selling to other American companies.

ABC Skips Its Own Footage of the Supreme Court Contradicting Obama on Tax Increase.  In the wake of the Supreme Court ruling that ObamCare is constitutional as a tax, a number of media outlets played the now-embarrassing clip of Barack Obama insisting the law isn't a tax.  Despite the footage coming from a 2009 nterview on This Week, ABC's journalists studiously avoided highlighting their own footage.  CBS, however, played it.

Voters Disapprove of Obama Blocking Release of Fast & Furious Docs.  After the President invoked executive privilege, the media was forced to cover a story it had strenuously covered up for a year.  In response, the media attempted to paint the President's move as a fight against a renegade Republican Congress playing political games during an election year.  Not only does this poll prove that tactic failed, my guess is that these numbers will get worse as people start to ask, "What the heck is Fast and Furious?"

Chicago's unreported race war.  According to a statement in the Chicago Tribune, reporting on the race of individuals involved in news events, such as mobs attacking, robbing and vandalizing, is irrelevant.  A news anchor at the ABC affiliate in Chicago goes even further:  Anyone who reads or writes about the epidemic of racial violence in Chicago is an "idiot" who engages in "meaningless ... race baiting," says Ravi Baichwal.  City officials and the media might be the only two places left where people still deny Chicago is under assault from more than 50 episodes of black mobs attacking, beating, robbing and vandalizing over the last three years in and around downtown. [...] And according to the award-winning police blog Second City Cop, there may be 25 more incidents of mob violence and lawlessness in that weekend alone that were never reported.

More about black mobs and black violence.

That's odd.  I don't recall reading about this in the U.S. news media.
Six Democratic superdelegates boycott convention and refuse to nominate Obama.  More Democratic superdelegates are boycotting their party's convention in North Carolina amid fears that any association with President Barack Obama will doom them to defeat in November.  Representatives Kathy Hochul and Bill Owens of New York, who both won special elections in seats previously held by Republicans, have joined four Democrats from the Rust Belt in skipping the Democratic convention in Charlotte at the start of September.

Unlike the 2,000-Death Count in Iraq, ABC, NBC, PBS, MSNBC Skip 2,000 Marker in Afghanistan.  On June 13, the CBS Evening News devoted a story by David Martin to the Afghanistan death count reaching 2,000, as Martin interviewed a mother of a fallen Marine.  CBS was alone.  There was no story last week on the Afghanistan death "milestone" on ABC, NBC, the PBS NewsHour [...] But the networks were all more aggressive when the 2,000 mark arrived in Iraq on October 25, 2005.  The Big Three networks devoted 14 morning and evening news stories to the death toll from October 24 through the end of October, and another 24 anchor briefs or mentions.  They used the number to spell "disaster for this White House."

Birth Control Patch Claims 23 Lives — and Counting.  Federal drug safety reports obtained by The Associated Press under a Freedom of Information Act request, "indicate that in 2004 — when 800,000 women were on the patch — the risk of dying or suffering a survivable blood clot while using the device was about three times higher than while using birth control pills."
