THE BIRTH OF FAKE NEWS: THE CLINTONS AND THE NEW YORK TIMES

If you ask people to identify a coming of age for the modern-day smear, it’s amazing how many political insiders—both Democrats and Republicans—consider it to be the Clinton era. It’s impossible for any outsiders to know exactly how the Clintons became adept at engineering smears to deflect from their controversies 

One of the earliest smear campaigns perpetrated by the Clintons began even before Bill announced he was running for president, when Hillary was busy devising a preemptive strike against women rumored to be involved with her husband. According to journalist Carl Bernstein in his biography A Woman in Charge, Hillary reportedly sought to get sworn statements from women Bill was rumored to have slept with. Find Out More…

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” host Sean Hannity continued his criticism of CNN for promoting what he called “fake news,” specifically reports tying President Donald Trump to Russia.

Hannity’s comments come on the heels of the resignations of three CNN journalists behind an article connecting Trump associate Anthony Scarmucci to a Russian investment fund that CNN was forced to retract and a Project Veritas video showing a CNN producer revealing the emphasis on Trump-Russia stories are for ratings.

The Clinton news network is now unraveling before your eyes. It is now being exposed for what it really is, fake news, anti-Trump propaganda and a political smear machine. And that’s tonight’s “Opening Monologue.”

All right, the Clinton news network, which is constantly competing with NBC News to be the most Find Out More…

Legendary pornstar Jenna Jameson is calling out “the liberals behind the bunny” at Playboy Magazine after Playboy was the only publication in the White House briefing room on Tuesday to defend embattled CNN amid its very fake news scandal.

Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders lit into CNN after getting asked by Breitbart News about the scandal that forced three of CNN’s senior most editorial staff to resign in disgrace after the retraction of a blatantly false hit piece on President Donald Trump and his associates.

After Sanders lit into the media, Playboy Magazine’s White House reporter Brian Karem was the only person in the entire media to spring to the defense of CNN. He Find Out More…

The anchor of “impartial” Channel 4 News has been urged to resign after refusing to deny he chanted “fuck the Tories” at Glastonbury music festival.

Channel 4 is publicly owned and broadcast news is covered by strict rules on impartiality by regulator Ofcom in the UK, insisting presenters avoid ­political bias.

However, Jon Snow was photographed with student Danny Millea at Glastonbury over the weekend, who tweeted the image along with the caption: “Boss place that Glasto. Having a dance with Jon Snow and hearing him shout f*** the Tories is what dream are made of.”

“Boss when he turned around just after he got off [sic] and sarcastically went ‘I’m supposed to be neutral’,” Mr. Millea also claimed. The Find Out More…

CNN ran a story on Monday describing the “wonderful” visit of Sesame Street character Elmo to a refugee camp in Syria, where he concludes that “refugee kids are just like us.”

“They like to play and learn just like Elmo and all his friends at Sesame Street,” Elmo said during an interview broadcast on CNN via Facebook Live. “Elmo thinks it’s important to know that everybody is the same deep down and that’s very important.”

“It was really sad because Elmo’s new friends told Elmo that they had to leave their homes because it wasn’t safe for them to stay,” he continued. “And that made Elmo really sad and sometimes a bit scared.”

The left-wing website Salon declared this Tuesday a “Trump-free Tuesday” because “American politics have been consumed by one man for almost two years.”

‘Trump-free Tuesday’ represented a promise from the Salon editorial team that they would not make reference, nor post photos of President Trump throughout the day.

“We will not publish the president’s name on Tuesday or use his picture. We will not cover his outrageous Twitter utterances or deride his surrogates for whatever stupid things they may or may not say on television,” the publication wrote in an editorial.

“American politics and culture and media, and damn near everything else, have been consumed by one man for almost two years,” it continues. “You know the person we’re talking about. ‘Consumed’ is a metaphor in this case, but sometimes it feels Find Out More…

On Tuesday evening, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin hired Hulk Hogan’s lawyers and sued the New York Times for defamation for falsely accusing her in a June 14 editorial of inciting Jared Lee Loughner to shoot Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ). The Times’ editorial was published on the day that James Hodgkinson shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) while he was practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game with his GOP teammates.

“Today, Sarah Palin took a stand against The New York Times Company by filing a lawsuit which seeks to hold The Times accountable for stating that Governor Palin is part of a ‘sickeningly familiar pattern’ of politically motivated violence and that she incited the horrific 2011 shooting of Representative Gabby Giffords, a tragedy where the Find Out More…

“Could be bullshit. I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now.”

And there you have it, a CNN producer, caught on camera, frankly admitting that “fake news” isn’t some regrettable accident of the 24-hour news cycle.

“Fake news” is CNN’s entire business model. (The business model of quite a few other liberal MSM outlets too, if the tantalizing hints being dropped by James O’Keefe are to be believed…)

As a fellow human being I feel sorry for the poor guy caught on camera by Project Veritas admitting this stuff — because he’s probably going to lose his job.

But as a fellow journalist I feel about as much sympathy for him as I do for all those idiot jihadists who go out to fight in Raqqa and Mosul, lured by the cool Find Out More…

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter lambasted Senate Republicans Tuesday over the unpopular GOP Senate healthcare bill — warning that it will merely transfer ownership of ObamaCare from the Democrats to Republicans.

Coulter took to Twitter to attack the Republican plan, which is struggling to pick up enough Senate votes to pass and has been criticized by conservatives for not going far enough to repeal the government interference and distortion of the market that came under Obamacare.

Coulter made similar claims, calling the bill “ObamaCare Lite” and saying voting for it was like “buying Golden West Financial right before the crash.”
