CNN is Having a Bad Week; The Trump Administration Should Make it Worse

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Two fake reporters and a fake editor resigned from CNN on Monday amid the fallout from the #fakenews network’s having to retract and apologize for yet another fake story on what it likes to call “RussiaGate”.  Interestingly, one of the fake reporters, a guy named Eric Lichtbau, had recently come to CNN from the equally fake NYTimes.  Apparently, infesting the already fake CNN with the “standards” of the NYTimes only served to compound fakery on top of fakery.  But don’t worry about CNN – journalism schools turn out thousands of great fake journalists every semester, so they’ll be able to just plug three more news fakers in and keep their fake news operation running like a finely-tuned fake machine.
  • In case you hadn’t noticed (and most normal Americans haven’t), the White House has taken to holding most of its press briefings off-camera in recent weeks.  This has set CNN’s prissy White House fake reporter, Jim Acosta, off on a series of on-air rants with several of CNN’s fake news hosts.  Over the past week, Mr. Acosta has called White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer “worthless”, accused the White House of suppressing the news, and of “black-balling” him and his fake news network.  Yesterday, after he had repeatedly heckled Spicer during the daily press briefing, Acosta found his seat moved to the back row at President Trump’s even with the Prime Minister of India later in the day.
  • All of this brings to my mind the question of why the White House continues to allow Mr. Acosta and his fellow fake journalists at CNN access to the White House at all?  In the wake of the recent Harvard study that found that CNN’s fake reporting on the Trump Administration is 93% hostile, it is more blatantly obvious than ever that Mr. Acosta and his CNN colleagues are nothing more than Democrat operatives with press credentials.  CNN is, after all, the same network that fed debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance during the campaign.  If you are going to allow CNN to ask questions at daily press briefings, you might as well invite the DNC over to do the same.
  • I’ve written this before, but it bears repeating:  The President of the United States and his press people have an obligation to tell the truth to the American people, and keep them informed on what the Administration is doing.  It is up to the Administration to decide how it will meet this obligation.  No POTUS has any obligation whatsoever to legitimize any specific news outlet by granting it press credentials and access to the White House.  When any news outlet makes a conscious decision to abandon all journalistic ethics and become nothing more than a propaganda arm for the opposition political party – which is exactly what CNN has done – then the POTUS has no reason or obligation to allow it continued access to the White House or any executive branch department of the government.
  • CNN, the major TV networks, the NYTimes and the WaPo all continue to engage in their anti-journalistic practices for the simple reason that, to this point in time, they have had no accountability or consequences for doing so.  The Trump Administration could change all of that by revoking the press passes of Mr. Acosta and everyone else from CNN, as Newt Gingrich has been advocating it do in recent weeks.  It is long past time for these bad actors to face some consequences for their bad acts.
  • Tired of winning yet? – Meanwhile, in a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court allowed most of the Trump Administration’s long-proposed travel ban on seven Muslim terrorist-supporting nations (as identified by the Obama Administration) to go into effect.  In allowing the ban to go into effect, the 9 justices first had to conclude that, when they formally hear the case in the Fall, the Administration is very likely to prevail on the constitutional issue at hand, i.e., whether the current POTUS has the express authority to limit immigration any way he sees fit, as every other POTUS has had.  If you marvel that there is even any question about this power, understand that it is only a question in the perverted minds of the Obama-appointed federal judges whose anti-constitutional lower court decisions in this case couldn’t even pass the laugh tests of the likes of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan.
  • The hilarious part about all of this is that the Administration’s proposed “ban” is really a proposal for a 90-day “pause” in immigration from the countries in question, and more than 180 days have now passed since it was initially proposed.  In addition, more than 90 days will pass before the Supreme Court will even hear oral arguments in the case, since the Court does not reconvene until October.  Thus, by the time the constitutional vagaries in this case have been fully adjudicated, the point will be moot. Welcome to the wonderful world of American jurisprudence.

Just another day in fake news media America.

The Perils Of Pelosi

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Oh, noes!  Not Nancy! – San Fran Nan, defending herself from a rising movement to replace her as House Minority Leader in the wake of Tuesday’s humiliating loss in Georgia’s HD 6, held a bumbling, stumbling, mumbling press conference on Thursday.  During the presser, she repeated herself constantly, flailed about for words, and finally blurted out the following:  “I always, always, always quote Martin Luther King in so many ways. But in this score, he said, Dr. Mar— he said, the ballot, the ballot, the ballot, legislation, legislation, legislation, your life, your life, your life.”  Trouble is, Dr. King never said any such thing.  But then, she’s a Democrat, so she’ll be protected by Joe and Mika this morning.
  • The thing is, he’s right. – Noting the perils of Pelosi, President Trump hit Twitter with the following:  “I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out. That would be very bad for the Republican Party – and please let Cryin’ Chuck stay!”  Of course, the President is right about Ms. Pelosi’s value to the GOP – she is the Republicans’ easiest and most toxic target for congressional candidates to run against in about 3/4ths of the country.  If the Ds were to replace her with someone with a more “moderate” image – though with the same radical leftist policy priorities – like Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan, they would take that easy target away from the Rs.  Then again, it would be a very simple thing to replace San Fran Nan’s mug with that of the equally repugnant and toxic Chuck Schumer in those GOP ads.  As he so often does, President Trump managed to sum up a fairly complex matter in a 140 character Tweet.
  • She’s about to start making people offers they can’t refuse. – In any event, taking down a sitting Majority Leader of either party in the midst of a congressional session is no easy thing.  San Fran Nan functions like a Mafia don, raising and distributing tons of money among her capo regimes, doling out favors, collecting chits, rewarding those who are loyal with powerful positions, punishing anyone who crosses her.  Martin Scorsese could make a bang-up movie about her rise to power and her decade as the party’s leader in the House.  Those Democrats who are now organizing an effort to overthrow her had better start checking under the covers for severed horse’s heads before they climb into bed.
  • Hey Jake Tapper, you’ve been TrumpTrolled! – In other news, President Trump ended his two month-long Twitter trolling of James Comey and the fake news media, issuing a Tweet in which he admitted he never taped any conversations with our bi-polar former FBI Director.  This naturally caused great outrage among all the fake journalists in the fake press corps, as they watched their dreams of another opportunity to claim “it’s Watergate all over again!” fly out the windows of their sad little cubicles.
  • And right on cue, now that he believes there are no recordings of his conversations with President Trump, Mr. Comey and his wife were spotted by the Daily Mail’s Jennifer Smith strolling into the NYTimes Building.  We should expect to see another “bombshell” scandal report out of the fake journalists at the fake newspaper of record, based entirely on some mysterious “anonymous source” within the next 48 hours.  As we now know, this is how Mr. Comey has always functioned.
  • Finally, here’s another reason to expect a new anonymously-sourced “bombshell” from either the NYTimes or the WaPo over the weekend:  After a couple of months in which the fakenews scandal-mongers at All-Russia-All-the-time MSNBC had led in the prime time ratings, Fox News has now re-taken the top spot that it had held continuously for more than a decade, as the public becomes increasingly aware that the whole Russia Collusion canard is just a Democrat fantasy.  These ratings are proof that the public has moved on, even if MSNBC and CNN haven’t.

We Can Count on Bob Mueller to Recuse, But Only When the Time is Right

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • In an absurdly hostile interview with Fox News’s trending-left host Chris Wallace on Sunday morning, Trump Attorney Jay Sekulow emphatically stated that the President is “not under investigation” by special counsel Bob Mueller.  This runs contrary, of course, to the fake Washington Post report from last Wednesday, which cited five anonymous “sources” who assured the Post’s fake reporters that President Trump is indeed the subject of the investigation.  Wallace was incredulous, since he apparently still believes the Post is a real news source, and others in the fake news media spent much of the day tut-tutting about Mr. Sekulow’s contention.  But then, late in the day, ABC and the Washington Examiner both reported that wait, the President really isn’t under investigation after all.  Seems Mr. Mueller has not made any decision whether or not to launch an investigation targeting Mr. Trump, which, if the WaPo’s fake editors had given the question any thought before just belching out their fake story last week, makes perfect sense since Mr. Mueller is still in the process of hiring staff and securing office space.  But then, expecting fake journalists to think rationally is like expecting an un-neutered tom cat to stop peeing on the furniture.
  • Here’s the thing to understand about Mr. Mueller and any possible investigation into President Trump:  If he does indeed decide to go down that path, then he has a legal duty to recuse himself from that part of the Special Counsel’s activities, due to his well-known best-buddy status with James Comey, who would obviously become a key witness in any such pursuit.  The governing statute of the Special Counsel process is very clear about this.  So, if we are to believe that Mr. Mueller is indeed the paragon of ethical virtue that Democrats and the fake news media have held him out to be, then we will know when any investigation of President Trump has begun because there will be a public announcement of Mr. Mueller’s recusal.  Should Mr. Mueller pursue such any investigation himself, in clear and unambiguous violation of the Special Counsel law, then any finding he delivers from such an investigation would be hopelessly tainted and worthless.  Everyone calling for Mr. Mueller’s recusal now should take a step back and wait until we have reliable information – obviously from some source NOT named the Washington Post or NY Times – that he has indeed opened an investigation targeting President Trump.  If such a day comes and Mr. Mueller fails to recuse, then he will deserve to have hell rained down upon him.  But only then.
  • Remember this immutable truth:  If Democrats are accusing Republicans of something they deem to be bad behavior, there is a 99.9% chance the Democrats have either committed the behavior, or are in the process of doing so. – Congressional Democrats are currently trying to gin up public outrage about what they deem to be the “secret” Senate plan to repeal and replace the failed Obamacare system that is being developed by a group of a half-dozen or so Republican senators.  Mind you, these are the very same Democrats who in 2010 voted on and passed a 2200 page monstrosity Obamacare bill that none of them had read, and whose leader, Nancy Pelosi, told an audience that “we have to pass the bill in order to see what is in it.”  Yes, those Democrats. Naturally, the Democrat agents who pose as fake journalists in the fake news media are doing everything they can to support the cause.  If any of this surprises you, you just haven’t been paying attention.
  • What must it be like to wake up every morning with the knowledge that you are Joy Reid? – MSNBC fake host Joy Reid labelled House Majority Whip Steve Scalise a “white supremacist” even has Mr. Scalise was fighting for his life in a hospital after being shot by a Bernie Sanders campaign worker last week.  In case you’re wondering, the sole basis for liberals leveling that heinous claim against Mr. Scalise is that he once accepted an invitation to speak to a group in his home state of Louisiana that he found out later happened to be a white supremacist organization.  In the literally thousands of campaign stops during the course of Mr. Scalise’s political career, this is the single example that leftwing slanderers like Ms. Reid have to point to when they assert their scurrilous claim.  Meanwhile, Mr. Scalise is known to be well-liked by his Democrat congressional colleagues, and the two capitol police officers who saved his life last week both happen to be African American, and both have served on his security detail for more than two years.  Either could have easily asked for reassignment had they believed the Majority Whip is in fact some sort of racist monster.  Instead, both are reported to have wonderful personal relationships with Mr. Scalise and his wife.  There is a special place in hell for people like Joy Reid.

Illinois is the Obamacare of U.S. States

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • If you like your lotto, you can keep your lotto!:  The company that runs the multi-state MegaMillions and Powerball lotteries announced that it was pulling out of the state of Illinois.  Why?  Because the state is teetering on the precipice of having to declare bankruptcy after a century of almost uninterrupted rule by a corrupt Democrat machine, and can no longer be relied upon to actually pay lotto winners.  Can it really be any coincidence at all that the home state of Barack Obama has now become the Obamacare of U.S. States, rapidly collapsing as service providers refuse to participate?  Nah, I don’t believe in coincidences.
  • All the Fake News Fit to Print:  The NYTimes published an op/ed written by a couple of liberals with no historical perspective titled “How We Became Bitter Political Enemies.”  The piece cites all sorts of polls, studies and obligatory quotes from other liberals in an utterly failed attempt to rationalize the leftwing violence against Trump supporters and GOP office holders that Democrats and the news media are egging on all over America.  The truth about the root cause of all of this is this:  In 1992, voters made the awful choice of electing the Clintons to occupy the White House.  The Clintons spent the next eight years governing on the principles of Hillary’s hero Saul Alinsky, which are based largely on demonizing their opposition instead of attempting to hold rational policy debates, and transformed the Democrat Party into an entity that believes that the ends justify the means.  So it should surprise no one that none of their liberal friends are willing or even capable of engaging in a logical debate on any issue.  And it should surprise no one that today’s Democrat officeholders not only steadfastly refuse to condemn the growing number of daily violent acts of their support base, they actively encourage it.  Because they believe those are the means that will accomplish their ends of regaining political power.  This really is very simple – I could’ve saved the fake NYTimes editors about 600 words of space in their worthless rag this morning, and their readers would have actually gotten the truth.
  • Unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick was quoted as comparing the nation’s police to “modern day slave-catchers.”  Man, it sure is baffling that no NFL team wants to sign this guy.  Right?  I mean, isn’t it?  whew.
  • And serial killers are the true saints, and sharks are the true house cats.:  The fake editors at the Huffington Post published an opinion piece titled “Muslims are the True Feminists.”  That might come as a surprise to the families of the 19 Yazidi girls who were burned to death in metal cages by ISIS on June 10 for refusing to have sex with its soldiers.  Or to all the Saudi women who aren’t allowed to have driver’s licenses.  Or to the hundreds of Muslim girls in the U.S. who have been forcibly genitally mutilated on the edict of their faith in recent years.  But hey, maybe this is what feminism represents in America these days – who am I to say?

The Fake News Media Is To Blame

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Fake journalists all over the fake news media spent most of the day yesterday desperately trying to distract the public’s attention away from the undeniable reality that it was their own lack of any journalistic ethics whatsoever that led directly to the mass shooting of House Minority Whip Steve Scalise and four others on Wednesday.  Chuck Todd was the champion rationalizer when he proclaimed that “we’re all to blame”.  Meaning, of course, that everyone except him and his fellow fake media assassination dog-whistlers are to blame.  Well, sorry, Chuck, it’s you.  Your fellow fake journalists.  Your network and its corporate owners.  The shooter’s Facebook page and other writings make it very clear that he hung on ever lunatic conspiracy theory spun by your colleague, Rachel Maddow, every disgraceful, irresponsible claim made by your colleague, Larry O’Donnell.  It’s you, Chuck, you, your disgusting colleagues, your disgusting bosses, not some farmer out in Podunk, Nebraska, or some hairdresser in Sawdust, Texas.  You.
  • The editors at the fake newspaper of record, the New York Times, tried to do their blame-shifting for their own heinous behavior by regurgitating the long-ago debunked lie that the Gabby Giffords shooting was caused by a Sarah Palin campaign ad.  When even CNN and the Washington Post started reporting that that was an outrageous lie, and Ms. Palin let it be known she was consulting her lawyers about a potential defamation suit, since the Times’ editors most certainly knew it was an outrageous slander when they published it, the Times meekly published a quick retraction.
  • And it is that very episode, of two fake news outlets actually exercising journalistic integrity to shame another fake news outlet to correct a false story, that proves my point that the loss of all semblance of journalistic integrity and ethics is the biggest problem facing our society.  Bear with me here, because this is important.
  • The founders of this country knew that a free and functioning press was critical to the maintenance of the kind of republican democracy they were trying to establish.  They knew this because such a free press was needed to curb abuse of power in the executive, congressional and judicial branches of government.  The best way to curb such abuses of power and misbehavior in office was to empower a fourth estate, the press, that had the freedom to discover such abuses and the willingness to bring them to public attention – regardless of the political party involved – in order to shame officeholders into behaving more properly, just as the WaPo and CNN helped to shame the NYTimes.
  • Where Democrats are concerned, the press long ago by and large abandoned this responsibility, and completely threw it away in 2008 when they uniformly decided to sign onto the Obama campaign.  For eight long years, the incredible abuses of power by President Obama and his evil surrogates went unremarked by the fake news media.  That abject failure of journalistic integrity has in turn now led Democrats and their voter base to believe they can engage in pretty much any behavior or rhetoric, no matter how disgusting or encouraging of violence, because they know they have no price to pay in the media.
  • So you have spectacles like the DNC Chairman and a senator from New York running around the country gratuitously tossing out profanities because they know the will suffer no reputational cost, and because they think it will attract Millenial voters to their party.  You have Kathy Griffin posing for that disgraceful photo because she believed she could do anything, no matter how outrageous, and not suffer any consequences (she didn’t factor in the social media backlash into her thinking).  You have Maxine Waters running all over the country spewing pro-assassination rhetoric because she knows she can do that with impunity.  You have Hillary Clinton proclaiming herself proudly as a part of the “resistence”, tacitly endorsing the violent protests by Antifa, because she knows there is no price to be paid.  You have leftwing celebrities calling daily for the assassination of Mr. Trump because they know there is no price to pay for such behavior.  You have the DNC fixing the primaries for Hillary Clinton in the full light of day because they knew the media wouldn’t report on it in real time.  This list could go on and on and and on.
  • When there is no political price to be paid due to media diligence, politicians will behave badly.  Badly behaving politicians will lead to bad behavior by their voters, because they too know there is no price to be paid.  This is not complicated.
  • What you see today is Republicans all over the morning shows talking about how they plan to tone their rhetoric down in the wake of Wednesday’s events.  Hell, even Ted Nugent’s talking about toning it down.  Why?  Their behavior didn’t lead to any of this.  You don’t see a similar number of Democrats doing that.  In fact, you already saw Nancy Pelosi ratcheting the rhetoric back up yesterday.  Why?  Because Republicans and Ted Nugent know they have to do this or the fake media will attack them.  The Democrats, meanwhile, knowing there is no price to be paid for their own bad behavior, will go right back to their own bad behavior.
  • It’s the fake news media’s fault.  The journalistic profession in America is dead.  Our leaders can either come to grips with this reality and begin to find ways to hold the media accountable for its serial heinous abuses of its first amendment privileges, or we will ultimately find ourselves in a civil war.  This is not mere speculation.  This is an inevitable outcome of the path we currently find ourselves on.

Just another week of fake news media destroying America.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 5.17.2017

  • The latest fake shoe to drop.:  The NY Times took fake journalism to new lows Tuesday evening, running a report claiming President Trump kind of, sort of, not-really-but-we’ll-pretend-like-he-did-so-we-can-get-more-clicks-on-our-website “asked” James Comey back in February if he “could see his way clear” to let the investigation of Mike Flynn go.  The Times ran this incredibly inflammatory story based solely on the word of an anonymous “source” who alleged Comey wrote a contemporaneous memo at the time of this request.  Not that the Times has actually seen this memo – oh, no, waiting to see the memo before running with such a story would be an act of actual journalism, so the Times could never do that – rather, the Times ran with this story after this anonymous source read part of the memo to one of its fake reporters.  #Fakenews, defined.
  • Not exactly profiles in courage, but it works.:  This latest episode of the deep state coordinating its efforts with the fake news media and the Democrat Party provides another great example of the different ways politicians in the two parties respond in such situations.  Within moments of the Times report – because they had all certainly been given an advance notice by the Times – every Democrat in Washington was seeking out microphones so they could recite the same inflammatory talking points and slanders against the President.  This is what Democrats always do – they hang together and take political advantage.
  • The Times said what?  Ooops, time for dinner.:  The Republicans, meanwhile, were completely disorganized and confused, as they usually are.  Most of them simply slunk off to their $300 dinners or whatever fundraiser they had planned and avoided comment.  Fox News Anchor Brett Baier spent a solid hour on his nightly news cast searching in vain for a GOP member of congress who would come onto his program to discuss the matter.  He found no one.
  • The party that hangs together doesn’t get hanged.:  This willingness of Democrats to hang together in a crisis, and rank disloyalty by Republicans in the same situations is why Barack Obama could be caught abusing the IRS, corrupting the Justice Department and loading up a plane with $400 million in foreign currency for the Iranian Mullahs and never have to pay any price whatsoever for abusing his office.  Meanwhile, a Republican President expresses a “hope” to a subordinate, and suddenly it’s the end of the world.  Of course, it helps that the Democrats have 98% of the news media willing to coordinate with them, but that doesn’t excuse the stupidity of the GOP.
  • In actual news that you won’t see in the NYTimes, an investigator into the mysterious death last July of senior DNC staffer Seth Rich announced that he can prove that Rich sent more than 44,000 DNC emails WikiLeaks.  This confirms what WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange had already basically admitted, which is that Mr. Rich – not Russia – was his source for the damaging DNC emails that were released just prior to last year’s Democrat National Convention.  You can bet the fake news media will avoid this story like a new strain of swine flu since it basically destroys their entire Trump/Russia collusion fantasy.
  • He plans to cuss them into submission.:  Speaking of the DNC, its serial cussing Chairman, Tom Perez, announced he is going to hold several meetings with pro-life Democrats in an effort to mend fences with them.  This comes in the wake of his statements several weeks ago that anyone who respects the life of unborn children has no place in his political party.  Which is true, but he now wants to pretend that it isn’t, because the Democrats need all the votes they can get.  No word if he plans to cuss at these people while he’s trying to make nice with them, but doing so would certainly be in keeping with his (lack of) character.
  • She hated dark money until her scam foundation failed.  Then she needed a new scam.:  Meanwhile, that famous critic of “dark money” in politics – The Most Corrupt Woman In America – announced she is forming her own 501(c)(4) political action organization that will be funded entirely by “dark money”.  As is always the case with the Clintons, if they are demonizing some behavior you can be sure they are deeply involved in that behavior.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends): 4.3.2017

  • I swear I don’t make this stuff up:  Real headline in Sunday’s Washington Examiner:  “Minimum Wage Activists Call Tipping Racist.”  This is the latest talking point being used by activists who want to implement a $15 minimum wage for all jobs, nationwide, a move that would obviously destroy millions of jobs in the process.  My wife and I are both “over-tippers” who generally tip more than the recommended 15-20% whenever the service is not awful, because we both had to work jobs like that at one point in our lives and know how hard they are.  But now, I suppose we’ll be called “over-racists” for doing so.  Honestly, the greatest fantasy writers in the world just could not make up the stuff progressives really think and say every day of the week.
  • How about ‘no’, Chuck?:  Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer told an interviewer on one of the Sunday morning talk shows about his latest bright idea to avoid nuking the filibuster over the Gorsuch nomination:  Withdraw Gorsuch’s name from consideration, and set up a committee consisting of both Republican and Democrat senators who would have to unanimously approve any subsequent nominee before he would go to the Senate Juduciary Committee for consideration.  Thus, you would have a committee making a recommendation to another committee making a recommendation to the full Senate.  Yeahhhhhhhhhh…no.
  • Hey, he’s got more credibility than our people do.:  When the fake editors at the Washington Post wanted an opinion piece to defend what the writer calls “Sound and accurate journalism”, did they reach out to one of their own fake “journalists”?  No.  Did they reach out to any of the thousands of other fake journalists working at other news outlets in the nation’s capital?  Nope.  Did they reach out to any of the tens of thousands of other fake journalists working at other media outlets all across America, or even in other countries?  Nopey.  No, when the WaPo’s fake editors want an opinion piece to defend “Sound and accurate journalism” they do to right, by God:  they go for an actor who once played a real journalist in a movie!  Yes, Robert Redford has an opinion piece in the Sunday WaPo in which he defends “Sound and accurate journalism.”  Mr. Redford apparently hasn’t gotten the memo that you could count the number of “sound and accurate journalists” in Washington today on the fingers of one hand.  All the others are just partisan hacks.  But hey, it’s been 42 years since he made that movie.  Give the guy a break.
  • Hey, think they can get Wendy Davis to run for Governor again?  That’d be great.:  In case you missed the earth-shattering news, the Texas Democratic Party has a new leading contender to be its sacrificial lamb to run against Senator Ted Cruz in the 2018 mid-term elections.  His name is Beto O’Rourke – a fantastic Texas name if there ever was one – and he currently represents Texas’s 16th congressional district in congress.  Beto is young, he’s smart, he’s articulate, he’s move-star good-looking, and hey, he even plays the guitar, so he’s cool, too.  Given all of that, he has about the same chance of defeating Ted Cruz in the 2018 mid-term elections as you or I do.  But he has a great, great name.
  • Because that’s what the fake news media is all about.:  The fake reporters at the NY Times reported over the weekend that Devin Nunes’ sources for the intelligence information on which he has been relying is two “White House staffers”, and even gave their names.  The story naturally received massive attention and repetition in the fake news media. Trouble is, that report, like pretty much everything else in the NY Times these days, was false.  Meanwhile, Adam Housley is reporting on Fox News this morning that his multiple sources inside U.S. intelligence agencies are telling him that the infamous liar Susan Rice was one of the high-ranking Obama officials who led the effort to spy on and unmask several members of the Trump Campaign and Transition Team.  We can bet there will be nothing but crickets on this story from the rest of the fake news media.

Just another weekend in fake news media America.
