Why CNN is fake news, even when it is opinion!

Politics – Down and DirtyThe Media Mess

I decided to venture into the Deep Swamp of Fake News today to find out how the left-wing media was reacting to President Trump’s decision to declassify the intelligence that led the CIA and the FBI to spy on his campaign in 2016. I needn’t have bothered. The response was as predictable as the liberal

Transparent Trump trips up the press with honest answers to their rabid questions

Politics – Down and DirtyThe Media Mess

Does anyone remember any president who was so willing to speak to the press as President Trump? Obviously not, even though the mainstream media has been grossly unfair to him, yet Trump is always willing to engage with reporters such as he did again this morning on his way out of the White House to

David and Nancy French prove that Never Trumpers are most sanctimonious people on the planet

Politics – Down and DirtyThe Media Mess

Most people won’t take the time to read the entire extensive length of Chris Buskirk’s column “Yes, Christians Can Support Trump Without Risk to Their Witness.” That’s a shame because they will miss out on some lovely score-settling with Never Trumper David French and his wife Nancy. Moreover, unless readers were prepared to traverse three

E.J. Dionne’s hissy fit about census is one more example of Democrat hysteria in the time of Trump

Politics – Down and DirtyThe Media Mess

It’s hard to remember sometimes that the United States of America has a Constitution that is working, especially if you listen to the Democrats or their surrogates in the press. Last week, the pretend allegations that Attorney General Barr lied to Congress sucked most of the oxygen out of D.C., and the resulting hypoxia may

Eugene Robinson invented a racist president; here’s how

Politics – Down and DirtyThe Media Mess

Allow me to take a few moments this morning to visit the distasteful subject of the Washington Post — and in particular the self-important musings of Eugene Robinson. His new column was published at the Post under the headline “Trump invented an immigration crisis to further his most consistent goal.” It was reprinted by the

Today at RCP: Republicans on CNN, MSNBC Wear ‘Kick Me’ Signs

Politics – Down and DirtyThe Media Mess

My column today at Real Clear Politics urges Republicans and Trump administration officials to stay off CNN and MSNBC. If you need any proof of the ambush waiting to happen, the interview of Hogan Gidley by Hallie Jackson last week should have sealed the deal. Conservatives who go on these channels or talk to the

New York Times peddles disinformation from Mueller’s team of ‘13 angry Democrats’

Politics – Down and DirtyThe Media Mess

The New York Times was up to its usual dirty tricks on Wednesday, promoting the Fake News that Attorney General Barr is a stooge for the evil Putin puppet knows as President Trump. You probably heard about it because the entire Echo Chamber Media promoted it for the rest of the day — or at

Dems obstruct justice under the noses of the sleeping news channels!

Politics – Down and DirtyThe Media Mess

Suppose something important were happening in Washington, DC — lets say the Democrats in Congress we’re trying to violate the law — and you turned on one of the three main 24/7 news channels to find out what was happening. What do you think you would find on the air? If you said that Fox

AOC and MSNBC and me: What’s 15 seconds of fame worth when the world is gonna end in 12 years?!?

I missed the Chris Hayes special with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on MSNBC last Friday, but I saw a clip of Hayes introducing AOC that sparked my interest. “… [I]nto the vacuum has come a bold new policy proposal that might be the most controversial thing in American politics at the moment. You’ve probably heard about it. 

‘What If Everything You Know Is Fake?’ — My new column at RCP takes you beyond the Fake News

Politics – Down and DirtySocial SpasmThe Media Mess

Information, as George Orwell taught us, is power. It is also the most easily manipulated currency in the marketplace of ideas. This week in my column at Real Clear Politics, I explored how the information consumer is ripe for exploitation, using the examples of Russiagate and the Jussie Smollett hoax to make my case, with
