Fake News

Dan Rather used one awful word to attack Trump that he instantly lived to regret

Published

on

Dan Rather is one of the founding fathers of fake news.

The former CBS anchorman spread liberal lies on air for years until it finally caught up with him and CBS fired Rather for using forged documents to falsely claim George W. Bush went AWOL from the Texas Air National Guard during Vietnam.

Rather has not learned a thing since his career ended in disgrace.

The former CBS anchorman – as well as other members of the Fake News Media – fell for a deceptively edited, year old video where Donald Trump spoke to reporters about the need to deport vicious MS-13 gang members that Trump called “animals.”

Twitter user Mark Elliot tweeted out a video of Trump’s comments, but falsely claimed the President savaged asylum seekers as “animals.”

Rather seized on the comments to smear Trump as “despicable.”

Rather’s attack was based on a lie.

A real journalist – especially one who had been burned by fakery before – would have taken the time to track down the video and make sure the context matched the claim made in Elliot’s tweet.

Rather did no such thing.

Instead, he pounced on comments that fit his preconceived liberal hatred of Trump and ran with an attack without even caring if it was based on a truthful interpretation of events.

    Really, Rather. I would think that someone who list his job in disgrace would want to keep a low profile. I guess that you think by now people have forgotten. Well you are a disgrace and what you have to say is nothing, no one cares about you or your opinions. People who have disgraced themselves usually try low and hidden. Your legacy is you being a disgrace to yourself your family and to America. You are just another fake news mouth, so go back under the rock you slithered out of.

    That moron lost his job for being caught lying about G. W. Bush and he hasn’t learned a single thing from the experience. I guess he has just lied so long that he can’t tell the difference between lies and truth. Probably never could.

    Normal U.S. citizens would ‘rather’ not have to endure any opinions from the father of fake news – – Dan Rather. He has earned his zero credibility reputation and he just needs to go.

    Personally, I cannot tolerate nor stand watching on tv: Dan Rather or Chris Wallace. Both are so biased, Chris Wallace had a really hard time when Hillary was losing…I cannot stand either one nor B Obama on TV, anywhere else. Off the show goes. We have too many real journalist (which these two are not) to watch such as CNN, NBC, or ANY OTHER so biased shows…Do not waste your precious time watching this garbage…so many of our youth have been brainwashed by them..and they are our next voters…they need a re-education and the colleges hopefully to get rid of the biased, liberal professors…I have a nephew, 30 years old, and I literally jumped him for his critical remarks about President Trump. He was offended, and I advised him to quit watching these biased shows, as it shows on him…he knows not of what he is speaking about, is very ill informed and believes every bit of it !!!

    Rather has no credibility and as this article noted, he does absolutely no research before he opens his mouth. Another Loser propagandist who is definitely over the hill. Wrap it up Rather before you get in any deeper.

The Washington Post buried this key fact about a scandal involving one of their reporters

Published

on

By

All hell broke loose in the media world on Thursday.

It involved one picture of a Washington Post reporter and a prominent Senator.

And now The Washington Post buried this key fact about a scandal involving one of their reporters.

Joe Biden’s nomination of Neera Tanden to head the Office of Management and Budget is on the ropes.

Democrat Joe Manchin came out against her nomination meaning Democrats needed to pick off one Republican vote.

Republicans and Manchin felt Tanden’s excessively partisan Twitter feed disqualified her from service in the cabinet.

Since Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski was the last Republican yet to reveal how she would vote, reporters pressed Murkowski for an answer.

One of those reporters was The Washington Post’s Seung Min Kim who was photographed showing Murkowski a tweet Tanden forgot to delete where Tanden accused Murkowski of “being high on her own supply” – a drug reference from the movie “Scarface”.

Kim then was bombarded with racist and sexist tweets attacking her for reporting on Tanden’s tweet and showing it to Murkowski.

The Post defended Kim in a statement but left out one key fact: the social media users harassing Kim were liberals and supporters of Tanden.

The Post statement read:

“A picture of Seung Min showing the tweet to Murkowski was posted to Twitter, which led to a flood of racist, sexist and ill-informed attacks aimed at Seung Min. The racist and sexist attacks have been vicious – and typical. She and other minority women endure vile, baseless attacks on a daily basis, no matter what story they are working on or tweeting about. The attacks on her journalistic integrity were wildly misguided and a bad faith effort at intimidation.

What she did was basic journalism. In reporting about Tanden’s tweet, she asked Murkowski for comment. Murkowski had not seen the tweet, so Seung Min showed it to her. This is standard practice. If the subject of a story is not aware of the information they are being asked to comment on, reporters share it with them. This only makes sense and is the fair and responsible thing to do.

No one should have to deal with the hate that has been directed and Seung Min. She did her job, and she did it well, like she always does. We could not be prouder that she is our colleague and a reporter for The Washington Post.”

If it were Trump supporters mobbing Kim online, The Post would have named her tormentors and it would have led to a dayslong conversation about hate speech online and the need to censor conservatives even more thoroughly.

But because it was a left-wing online rage mob, the media let it pass with a generic statement not calling attention to the source of the online hate.

The New York Times was forced to retract one story about the Capitol Hill riot that left Americans stunned

Published

The corporate-controlled press smeared Donald Trump nonstop for five years.

Media lies and suppression were the main reason why Joe Biden is currently in the White House.

But The New York Times was forced to retract one story about the Capitol Hill riot that left Americans stunned.

The New York Times and other mainstream outlets have been incessantly covering the Capitol Hill riot in an attempt to label all Trump supporters as terrorists.

But the Democrat Media Complex has sensationalized the story to absurd degrees.

They’ve characterized the episode as an “armed insurrection” and fretted about how the country almost lost its democracy.

The breach at the Capitol was embarrassing; it doesn’t need to be disfigured into something it wasn’t.

But The Times did exactly that when they reported that rioters killed Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick by bashing him over the head with a fire extinguisher.

The only problem is that there is no evidence that actually happened.

The Times was forced to edit their original reporting as follows:

Then on Wednesday, pro-Trump rioters attacked that citadel of democracy and overpowered Mr. Sicknick, 42, according to two law enforcement officials. With a bloody gash in his head, Mr. Sicknick was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support. He died on Thursday evening. [Note: omitted from this version are the words “and struck him in the head with a fire extinguisher” which appeared in the original article.]

The cause of Officer Sicknick’s tragic death is not yet known.

The emended Times article continued:

Medical experts have said he did not die of blunt force trauma, according to one law enforcement official. “He returned to his division office and collapsed,” the Capitol Police said in the statement.

The fire extinguisher narrative was spread far and wide by the entire media ecosystem, which means it’s already been etched into the memories of most readers and viewers.

In the wake of the Capitol Hill breach, Democrats are calling on the government to label Republicans as domestic terrorists and pull Fox News off the air.

This level of hysteria and division is unsustainable.

The bias in the so-called “mainstream” media has become too big to ignore.

News outlets bill themselves as institutions that hold power accountable, but they have become one of the institutions that must be kept in check by vigilant consumers of information.

Ted Cruz shut down this NBC reporter’s lie with one brutal reality check

Published

By this point, Republicans are used to dealing with members of the media that hate them and misrepresent what they say.

But after Donald Trump, some Republicans are learning that the best defense is a good offense and are now fighting back.

And Ted Cruz just shut down this NBC reporter’s lie with one brutal reality check.

NBC correspondent and host of MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell reports thought she really nailed Ted Cruz when she mocked Cruz for using the phrase “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing” and incorrectly attributing the phrase to William Shakespeare instead of American author William Faulkner’s book entitled The Sound and the Fury.

But Cruz was right and Mitchell was wrong and Cruz brutally pointed out in a Tweet where he cited the specific scene from the play, Macbeth, where the line is used.

“Methinks she doth protest too much. One would think NBC would know the Bard. Andrea, take a look at Macbeth act 5, scene 5: ‘[Life] struts & frets his hour upon the stage, And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound & fury, Signifying nothing,’” Cruz wrote on social media.

Macbeth is not some obscure work that is easy to glance over.

It’s one of the most famous plays in all of literature.

Mitchell tried to weasel her way of her mistake by claiming her error was due to the fact that she was so well educated in the works of American authors that she failed to realize Cruz accurately quoted Macbeth.

Many Americans don’t trust reporters because they are biased and lazy.

But Americans also don’t trust reporters because time and time again they prove that they just aren’t very bright.
