The government is about to shut down an anti-Trump news network for committing one crime

Published

on

The mainstream media’s anti-Trump attacks are more rampant than ever.

But one network just crossed a line nobody saw coming.

And now the government is about to shut them down for committing one crime.

The First Amendment provides for freedom to the press, to even oftentimes print horrible things.

But generally, those things are not illegal.

That doesn’t seem to be the case with Bloomberg News, which is owned by presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg.

Now Bloomberg has been slapped with a complaint at the Federal Election Commission (FEC), after a Media watchdog alleged they violated the law when they came out stating they will not investigate their founder, or any other Democrat, and will instead spend their time investigating President Trump.

Media Research Center’s complaint points out that the “media exemption” given to news organizations that allows them to cover political candidates without needing to disclose finances doesn’t apply if the organization fails to “give reasonably equal coverage to all opposing candidates.”

NewsBusters reports:

“On Monday, The Media Research Center (MRC) filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against Bloomberg LP, the owner of Bloomberg News, Michael Bloomberg and Mike Bloomberg 2020, Inc.

The complaint maintains that the policy adopted by Bloomberg News to omit investigating Mike Bloomberg and the other Democratic presidential candidates while continuing to investigate Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump potentially is an improper contribution to Bloomberg’s campaign under FEC regulations.

According to FEC law, the “media exemption” that would normally exempt media organizations from federal campaign finance disclosure laws does not apply if “the facility is owned or controlled by any political party, political committee, or candidate” should the organization fail to “give reasonably equal coverage to all opposing candidates.”

The complaint asserts that the decision to investigate President Donald Trump and not the opposing Democratic candidates can be considered a contribution – or a thing of value – under the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) and should therefore be investigated by the FEC for potential FECA violations.”

This complaint is the first hiccup in Bloomberg’s campaign, which he has already dropped tens of millions of dollars of his own money into.

Many political “experts” predict that Bloomberg could beat President Trump if he were to face him in 2020.

But if this complaint results in massive fines for his “news” publication, it would be a horrible look for Bloomberg.

Do you think Michael Bloomberg could beat President Trump in 2020?

    Perhaps president of his ‘everytown’ group or something, where he would have enough hoplophobic soccer moms willing to make it easier for criminals to kill their own kids that would vote for him, but of the US? Haaahaahaaaahaha!

    Right now, the FEC is missing their lead comissioner which means they don’t have a quorum…they have NO power to do anything and Moscow Mitch has refused to have a vote to replace the missing man. Right now, the FEC does NOT have legal authority to investigate anything until that person is replaced.

    Bloomberg will never beat Trump in 2020. His biased media is well known and not appreciated. On a more humorous note, maybe he is purposely wanting Trump to win, and is using his own news outlet to purposely portray unfairness, bias and media control as a Democrat agenda to insure a Trump victory.

    Bill, he also could be described as a post turtle. For those who don’t know what that is, think about a turtle on top of a fence post out in the middle of nowhere. You don’t know how it got there, don’t know why it is there, know it doesn’t belong there, but know it isn’t going anywhere.

CNN made this one programming change that will leave you speechless

Published

on

Fake news CNN long ago decided it wanted war with Donald Trump.

For three years, fake news CNN did everything in its power to remove Donald Trump from office.

And now CNN made this one programming change that will leave you speechless.

At the start of the Trump Presidency, CNN employed a stable of commentators that supported the President in an effort to provide some basic fairness by presenting the view of the President and his supporters to their viewers.

That all changed as CNN cast its lot with the Democrat Party in an all-out bid to drive President Trump from office.

CNN fired pro-Trump commentators Paris Dennard, Jeffrey Lord, and Ed Martin so fake news CNN could present uniformly anti-Trump TV programming.

One of the final pro-Trump commentators on fake news CNN Steve Cortes – a member of Trump’s Hispanic advisory council – had not been on the air in the months.

Cortes told Fox News host Laura Ingraham that CNN “benched him” and allowed his contract to expire because Cortes exposed the fake news hoax CNN spread after the 2017 Charlottesville tragedy that President Trump praised white supremacists by claiming there were “very fine people on both sides” of the protest.

“For committing what was the unpardonable sin, at least in the eyes of CNN, for declawing that deception that they continued to push, they put me on the bench,” Cortes added. “They took me off the air after I did a Prager U video that got 6 million hits detailing exactly why the Charlottesville myth was a deception.”

“Stories that I was fired are incorrect,” Cortes added. “I was ‘benched’ by CNN following the Prager U video, and only appeared once on air during the last 6 months of my contract which just expired.”

The “very fine people” lie is one of the most persistent and ugly fake news hoaxes of the Trump Presidency.

In his press conference after a white supremacist killed a young woman by running over her with his car the President clearly condemned neo-Nazis and other bigots.

When the President said there were “very fine people on both sides” he was referring to Americans that traveled to Charlottesville to defend Civil War statues.

But since CNN is at war with both Donald Trump and the truth, the fake news network sidelined Cortes because Cortes exposed their lie.

NBC’s Chuck Todd will never recover from this career killing lie

Published

on

Chuck Todd is the host of NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Meet the Press is the top rated Sunday show because high profile guests from both parties agree to appear.

But now Chuck Todd will never recover from this career killing lie.

On December 29, Todd will air a special episode of “Meet the Press” on the supposed spread of misinformation.

Naturally, Todd blames it all on the Republican Party.

Todd even goes so far as to claim simple facts – namely that some Ukrainian government officials meddled in the 2016 election – are lies and conspiracy theories.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine Todd described how he thinks there are “incentive structures.”

Rolling Stone reports:

The fact is, and by the way, this isn’t going to be easy to show, but I actually think when we outline this it will, the right has an incentive structure to utter the misinformation. Look, I’ll just be honest, when I had the third senator [to spread Russian disinformation], Senator Ted Cruz, come on my show and do this — who I did not expect to do this — I started to think, he wants the confrontation. He wants to use this for some sort of appeasement of the right.

I didn’t know what else to think. I was stunned because he’s a Russia hawk. He spent the entire week showcasing his hawkishness on Russia. Threatening the administration on the pipeline in Germany and really be there. So the reason I, and I’m sorry I ever showed an expression, the reason that the expression on my face went viral, I think, I was genuinely shocked. And by the way, they came to us. They came to us saying they wanted to come on this week. And I really naively thought, maybe he wants to remind people that with Russia [and blaming Ukraine] this is getting ridiculous. And it turned out not to be the case.

So I do think one of the things that I want to explore on this is the incentive structure. One of the things we don’t fully appreciate in mainstream media on these attacks is that it’s become fun to attack the press, if that makes sense, on the right. It doesn’t matter if we’re right or wrong, attack them anyway.

The lack of self awareness was stunning.

First of all, Todd gave the interview with Rolling Stone, the same magazine that published the fabricated account of rape at a University of Virginia frat house.

That was one of the biggest fake news stories of all time.

Second, Todd has routinely defended the Christopher Steele dossier on his program which all Americans now know is a hoax.

Finally, Todd shares a network with Brian Williams and Rachel Maddow.

Williams parlayed his fake stories about heroic reporting on the battlefield into the NBC Nightly News anchor chair.

And Maddow goosed her ratings to the point where she was the most watched host on all of cable news – even beating Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson – by promoting the Russian collusion conspiracy theory.

No such incentive structures on the right exist to parlay fake news into such high profile media gigs.

Rachel Maddow told this giant lie that explains why her career is over

Published

on

Rachel Maddow is the biggest star in MSNBC’s primetime lineup.

But ever since the Russian collusion hoax went up in flames, Maddow is in big trouble.

And now Rachel Maddow was caught telling this giant lie that explains why her career is over.

MSNBC is one of the most far-left “news” outlets in America.

As the centerpiece of MSNBC’s primetime lineup, Maddow parrots far-left talking points to soothe her audience.

But during a recent broadcast, Maddow descended into parody when she claimed the power struggle at the establishment gun group the NRA was somehow the biggest story in America.

Mediaite reports:

“We have watched this conservative political behemoth, with really no equal in conservative politics, we have watched it collapse at breathtaking speed,” observed Maddow during the Christmas Eve edition of her program. “NRA executives and contractors and vendors have extracted hundreds of millions of dollars from the organization’s budget. From gratuitous payment, to sweetheart deals and opaque financial arrangements. Hundreds of millions of dollars they’ve taken out of the NRA!”

“The NRA appears to be very worried about a ever-widening investigation by the attorney general of the state of New York,” she added. “New York’s Attorney General Letitia James subpoenaed more than 90 current and former member of the NRA’s board … If the NRA’s behavior has been bad enough New York could conceivably revoke its non-profit status and shut it down which is what the state of New York just did with Donald Trump’s charitable foundation this year…

…“This would be like a show stopping deal at any other time. The once fearsome NRA, the most powerful entity in conservative Politics, I mean they’re in free fall,” Maddow continued, before noting that in “any other time in any other news environment” the media “would be watching that slow motion car crash endlessly.”

“That would be the biggest political news story in the country for a long time. But with this president in the middle of an impeachment it’s like, you know, just one more tree falling in the forest,” she concluded.

The NRA has a lot of problems due to its past support of Democrats and gun control measures.

But its crackup would not be the biggest political story in America but for impeachment as Maddow claims.

That would be the ongoing unraveling of the Russian collusion hoax.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report laid bare the fact that the Christopher Steele dossier – upon which the entire collusion narrative rested – was complete and utter garbage.

The Fake News Media is desperate to avoid accountability for plunging America into three years of chaos and division all based on nothing more than a hoax.

Maddow was one of the leading conspiracy theorists in all the fake news.

Her ratings plunged when the Mueller Report came out and revealed that a two-year-long investigation found no evidence of Russian collusion.

So now she is trying to whitewash that story out of existence.

  • The failing New York Times released yet another hit piece on Justice Brett Kavanaugh re-hashing debunked smears.



    The Times failed to mention the alleged victim didn't recall the supposed "incident." In response, President Trump called for “the resignation of everybody at The New York Times involved in the Kavanaugh smear story.”
