Hydroxychloroquine and the Mainstream Media: A National DIS-service

Hydroxychloroquine and the Mainstream Media: A National DIS-service

by Phil Erwin In the early weeks of the Coronavirus pandemic, there was an actual back-and-forth debate about whether Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) would prove an effective way to combat the virus. Three months into the U.S. spread of the infection, the initial indications were at least promising, and the Media seemed, if not hopeful, at least […]

Opposition Research: It’s Not Trump’s Fault That Politics is a “Dirty” Game

Knapp In a June 12 interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News, President Donald Trump freely admitted that he would listen to foreigners offering him “dirt” on his political opponents: “I think you might want to listen, there isn’t anything wrong with listening ….

Barr’s Senate Hearing Coverage: Mainstream Proves They are ‘Fake News’

by Phil Erwin If you have any doubts whether Trump’s politically-charged characterization of the “Mainstream” Media – “Fake News” – is accurate, you need wonder no more. This week’s loudest controversy concerned whether Attorney General William Barr’s 4-page memo highlighting key conclusions of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 400+ page report had accurately reflected the findings […]

Spotlight on Fake News

Spotlight on Fake News

by Phil Erwin There is a movie entitled Spotlight which I stumbled into this week while channel-surfing. The cast includes some pretty heavy hitters – Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber. Terrific actors all.

Amber Athey, Media and Breaking News Editor As 2018 comes to a close, it’s time to review the year’s worst cases of media misquotes, misleading narratives, major corrections and straight-up fake news. While last year’s fake reporting largely occurred during the media’s relentless pursuit to prove Russian collusion, this year’s list is much more varied. However, some themes emerged: […]

Mainstream fake-news: the devious limited hangout

    By Jon Rappoport Big media attacks “fake news.” Independent reporters rightly point the finger at big media as the predominant purveyor of fake news. Oops. Here I want to comment on one of the most devious forms of MSM fake news: the limited hangout. When necessary, news outlets will do a PARTIAL EXPOSURE of […]

Knapp On November 8, Pennsylvania attorney general Josh Shapiro’s office issued a subpoena to web host and domain registrar Epik, pursuant to “an ongoing civil investigation.” The subpoena demands “any and all documents which are related in any way to Gab.” Gab, as you’ve no doubt heard, was accused Pittsburgh synagogue […]

  By Richard Eber, California Political News and Views  “ The tumultuous 2018 midterm campaign, shaped by conflicts over race and identity and punctuated by tragedy, barreled through its final weekend as voters prepared to deliver a verdict on the first half of President Trump’s term, with Republicans bracing for losses in the House and state […]

Academia Run Amok

Academia Run Amok

    By Sigrid Weidenweber Nothing is more amusing than seeing semi-sophisticated academics bereft of their sham-learned clothes—their pretentious behinds exposed to the air of common sense.  My amusement knew no bounds, perusing a Wall Street Journal opinion piece in the October 6-7, 2018 edition.  It is a piece entitled Fake News Comes to Academia, […]
