Oh look! Time for another presidential press conference! Because the media won't acknowledge it themselves, Trump just showed a video laying out the timeline of his administration's action on coronavirus and made the media sit through it in the briefing, watching their own networks' words.Savage. pic.twitter.com/03ND2iahOK— Caleb Hull (@CalebJHull) April 13, 2020 At his daily combative press briefing to address COVID-19 issues, President Donald Trump played video clips highlighting media voices that affirm his coronavirus response timeline claims. It was an unusual pushback against the daily hostility media and Trump sling at each other. pic.twitter.com/6fEymjTjUM— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 14, 2020 Fascinating theater. As expected, the media was not pleased. CNN called Trump's truth reel propaganda even though it contained their
CBS News veteran Scott Pelley recently told CNN that he lost his CBS Evening News anchor position by complaining to management about his hostile work environment. Pelley said it was hostile for women and men so he went all the way to lecherous network chairman Les Moonves with his complaints. At the next contract renewal point, Pelley's services were no longer needed. He still reports for the CBS news magazine 60 Minutes.
Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) joined me on 840WHAS to discuss his tweets damning the students of Covington Catholic high school as "appalling" and displaying "racist hatred" at a January field trip to DC. Yarmuth declined to apologize for tweeting before learning the wider story of a group of adult Herbrew Israelites hurling abusive, homophobic language at the students, and how additional video showed that the Native American group approached the students. Initial social and traditional media accounts reported that the students "swarmed" the Native Americans to mock and intimidate the elders. Whoooooaaaaa. Slow your roll, rush-to-judgment team. The videos don't lie. Agenda-driven social justice warriors supplying limited views do lie. Student Nick Sandmann appeared on TODAY to tell his story. It was
Every morning, NBC's TODAY Show starts with some sort of breathless, hysteria-driven BOMBSHELL news story on Trump. It's so predictable that the Boy Who Cried Wolf would advise "yeah, you may want to get that verified, nitwits." So now we are letting BUZZFEED (the web home of fart jokes and quizzes about naming genitals) lead the news on traditional media outlets? Our media industry looks ridiculous. But, we are about to TAKE DOWN TRUMP so any port in a storm. Buzzfeed = The New York Times if it is negative about Trump. Let's run with it as the lead story!!!!! “One TX Democrat now says if this explosive new report is true, Pres. Trump must either resign or be impeached.”@halliejackson has
Ever since Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president, much of the news media universe has pounded him. And he hates them back. He brings it on himself. Trump is rude, arrogant, thoughtless, narcissistic, and ill-tempered. He uses Twitter to insult political enemies and even some private citizens with whom he disagrees. Certain media people are rude, arrogant, thoughtless, narcissistic, and ill-tempered. But they're not the president. That's the difference. Trump's war with media has been his biggest conundrum and an odd victory for his supporters. With the President of the United States constantly declaring any criticism as "fake news," it has weakened the overall perception of the media business even if it has bolstered the subscription rates and TV ratings of
President Donald Trump selected his CNN nemesis Jim Acosta for a question following the 2018 midterms. They're not besties.
🤣🤣🤣 @CBSNews tweets a 2014 photo of a voter deriding @senatemajldr McConnell and claims that it happened today in Louisville. #verify #factsmatter https://t.co/aFOG3jt7No— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) November 7, 2018 The twitter administrator for CBS News was duped by a 2014 photo of a voter named Joe Conroy giving a THUMB DOWN signal behind Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at their polling place. CBS reported that it happened today, November 6, 2018. And that's the way it wasn't. The Courier-Journal reported on the quirky moment on a day that Mitch McConnell trounced Alison Lundergan Grimes to roll into his sixth term as a U.S. Senator from Kentucky. PHOTOBOMB: A Getty photographer captured this unbelievable moment while Sen. Mitch McConnell was casting his
