How CNN Cons America, the World, and Itself

President Donald Trump re-ignited his long-running feud with CNN this past weekend. He tweeted: .@FoxNews is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news,

2016 Election Night Flashback — Top 14 Media Meltdowns

On Election Night 2016, I was about 60 to 65 percent sure Hillary would win, and therefore emotionally preparing myself for all the hideous things that would come with such a thing — fascist Obamacare enshrined, further bake-the-cake mandates strangling my Christian faith, a more empowered central government, corruption galore, and a whole lot of Benghazis.

POLLAK: November 9 Was the Day After Groundhog Day

The conventional wisdom is that the past year has been extraordinary, a constant barrage of the unprecedented, the exhilarating, and the outrageous. That is true, to an extent. But on a deeper level, the past year has seen a return to what was once “normal.”

Trump Tweets Poll: Plurality of 46% Believe Media ‘Fabricate Stories About Me’

With the establishment media reeling from yet-another disastrous week of fake news debacles — here, here, here, here, and most especially here — a bubbling sexual harassment scandal, and the fact that they are fooling no one in their ongoing cover-up of the real Russian collusion scandal, President Trump set his Twitter feed on “humiliate” Sunday morning with the news that a plurality of Americans, a full 46 percent, now believe the media fabricate stories to damage him.

Democrats, Fake News Media Exploit Sgt. La David Johnson’s Death to Smear Trump

CNN and the rest of the mainstream media would have us believe that President Donald Trump called the widow of the late Sgt. La David Johnson to abuse her by telling her that her husband bore responsibility for his own death — that “he knew what he signed up for,” in the words of Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL), who was somehow present in a limousine when the call was taken on a speakerphone.

Report: NBC News President Attended Event with Weinstein Before Network Spiked Story

Looks as though I might owe NBC News an apology. Last week I accused the network of spiking Ronan Farrow’s bombshell Harvey Weinstein story in order to protect a high-powered, leftwing Democrat. You cannot blame me. That is what NBC does. Well, now it looks as though NBC’s motives might even be worse. Apparently, the just-appointed president of NBC News, Noah Oppenheim, is an ambitious screenwriter who recently attended an event with Weinstein.

Narrative Fail: Plurality of 48% Approve of Trump’s Tax Plan; 45% Approve of Him

Despite a coordinated, full-court savaging throughout the national media, President Trump is showing a counter-intuitive resilience among actual voters — you know, those people who live in the real world outside the cable news bubble. In both the Rasmussen poll of likely voters and the latest Politico poll of voters, Trump’s job approval rating has jumped to a healthy 45 percent.

Democrats Flew at Taxpayer Expense and Almost Nobody Cared

The media and the Democrats are in a frenzy over flights that Trump administration officials have taken on military or private jets, and billed to the taxpayer. Yet they showed almost no concern whatsoever when President Barack Obama’s Cabinet appointees, and other leading Democrats, took expensive military flights for personal reasons.

Nolte: After Declaring Bill Clinton Off Limits, CNN Targets Judge Roy Moore’s Wife

In the heat of the 2016 presidential campaign, the leftwing cable news network CNN famously declared that the many sins of former-president Bill Clinton, spouse of then-Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton, were off limits. CNN even went so far as to cut the microphone of a guest who brought the former president up. Today, this very same CNN is targeting the wife of Alabama US senate candidate Judge Roy Moore.
