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

Published

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.

CNN just declared all-out war on Fox News with an attack to get them thrown off the air

Fake news CNN hates anybody who challenges their far-left agenda.

Fox News has been their top enemy for years.

And CNN just declared all-out war on Fox News with an attack to get them thrown off the air.

Even with many Fox News hosts shifting to the Left in the past few years, there are still a number of their hosts who consistently push real news.

Hosts like Tucker Carlson regularly challenge the so-called “mainstream” media’s narratives on their own shows, despite the hosts being on a mainstream media network.

For this, CNN has been working overtime to either get hosts like Carlson thrown off the air, or else force the entire Fox News network shut down.

Over the weekend, CNN weekend host Fareed Zakaria took this fight to a new level.

He released his new Sunday Night special titled A Radical Rebellion, and while promoting it, he quickly began railing on Fox News.

Zakaria called Fox News the “propaganda arm of the most extreme wing of the Republican Party,” and former Fox News host Alisyn Camerota agreed, dismissing the network as “trying to pass themselves off as news.”

Zakaria claimed “It becomes impossible to deny the Republican Party today has been infected by a series of crazy conspiracy theories.”

He went on to incorrectly caricature Republicans positions to smear the network he claims Fox News is the propaganda arm of.

“I think that it’s that statistic – it’s the one I mentioned–- 40 percent believe that Bill Gates is trying to control them by implanting microchips in their brain,” Zakaria said. “I think something like a third of Republicans still believe that Barack Obama was born in Kenya, not the United States.”

Camerota responded after Zakaria blamed Republican leaders for the views he claims Republicans believe in, stating that Fox News is also responsible.

That’s when Zakaria agreed, claiming that Fox News is the propaganda arm of the Republican Party.
“Fox is essentially a propaganda arm,” he began.

“And it’s not even a propaganda arm of the Republican Party. That’s not the way to think about it. It is a propaganda arm of the most extreme wing of the Republican Party. It is, you know, the television version of Twitter for the Republican Party – the most extreme, the most passionate, the most energized.”

It is fake attacks like this that the Left is hoping to use to force Fox News off the air.

They have already run campaigns to get sponsors to drop the network.

Anybody who challenges their fake news agenda must be destroyed in their eyes.

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.
