FoxNews Sued by Black Employees for Racial Discrimination

J/K … it’s actually left-slanting fake news network CNN.

“Upon information and belief,” the suit says, “African-American employees have had to endure racial slurs and prejudicial biases from superiors such as, ‘it’s hard to manage black people’ and ‘who would be worth more: black slaves from times past or new slaves.’ ”

Earlier on CNN: “Donald Trump is a flat-out Racist.”

“Well, let me do it again, and let me do it in two languages: Es un racista. He is a flat-out racist and it’s what he’s played on for 16 months. He is a bigot. He is a racist.”

CEO makes a death threat; is then shocked by death threats

Your Left at work:

The idiot made a detailed death threat against President-Elect Trump, on social media.

He was then surprised that it got out to society. You know, surprised that people on social media would be social with it.

He tried to plead that it was a joke, that it was alcohol-fueled, and that it was only meant to be private (i.e., he’s sorry he got caught). But those excuses didn’t stop his getting some death threats in return.

Surely those threats were also jokes, alcohol-fueled, and only meant to be private. Even so, when it was done to him, he was shocked – and for some reason he felt a need to go into hiding.

His former company, to its good credit, has gotten rid of him. And he has apologized; God bless him, for that. Hat tip HotAir.

UPDATE: Your Left at work, again. The Left’s New Hot Meme has arrived. Lefties will be labelling all news/opinion sites that dare challenge them as “Fake News”.

We can foresee what comes after: The Left will eventually get its “Fake News”-labelled sites to be banned or boycotted by Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, CNN.com, and so on. In this way, the Left will once again control all discussions and get the peasants to conform. Google has started going there.

Trump Angers Lobbyists and Journalists. #Good

Posted by V the K at 9:05 am - November 16, 2016.
Filed under: Media Bias

Vice President-elect Mike Pence has ordered the removal of all lobbyists from President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team, The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday night.

[H/T: Business Insider]

Demonstrating once again that Trump has no idea how Washington works and how dangerous it is to bring in an outsider for the Very Serious Business of running the country.

Just kidding. Screw those ticks.

BTW Obama promised when he ran for president that there would be no lobbyists in his administration, and then he hired lobbyists to work in his administration.

The Press did not care.

The Anti-Trump press isn’t covering this story much, but they are absolutely livid (and butthurt) that Trump went to dinner without telling them.

As Trump Leaves Press Behind for Steak Dinner, Incoming Admin Already Showing Lack of Transparency.

In a highly unusual move, President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday night left his Manhattan residence without notifying the reporters covering him or giving any indication of where he was going.

The maneuver seemed to deliberately limit access to the media.

*Now* the media are complaining about a lack of transparency? Ahem.

The Steve Bannon kerfuffle

I don’t know a great deal about it. This is a post where I’m not presenting information, so much as asking for it.

But, to set up the question: Via Instapundit we have this from The Hill: Breitbart News planning lawsuit against ‘major media company’.

Breitbart News is preparing a lawsuit against a “major media company” over claims that it is a white nationalist website…

The website has been under intense scrutiny since President-elect Donald Trump named Stephen Bannon as a senior White House counselor and strategist. Bannon is the former executive chairman of Breitbart News…

“…Breitbart News rejects racism in all its varied and ugly forms. Always has, always will,” [said a statement.] “The diversity of the company’s news coverage and its staff continue to embody Andrew Breitbart’s colorblind, distinctly American commitment to ‘E pluribus unum’—out of many, one.”

Critics have taken aim at the site’s coverage in recent days. While Bannon was executive chairman of Breitbart, the website published a story by David Horowitz referring to conservative commentator Bill Kristol as a “renegade Jew,” something that has been mentioned repeatedly in media coverage calling Breitbart a white nationalist website.

So, here’s what I “think I know”, at present.

  • Breitbart.com was one of the first to go all-in for Trump. They are pro-deportation of illegals, but in no way white-supremacist.
  • Just as the media’s knickers are in a twist over Trump and over the Alt-Right, they’re in a twist over Trump keeping Bannon as a senior, Karl Rove-type advisor.
  • But it’s ridiculous. If all that the media has is one Jew (David Horowitz) slagging another Jew (Bill Kristol) over something to do with Jewishness, on Breitbart.com while Bannon presided, let’s face it: They’ve got nothing.

Correct? Agree/disagree? What I would be most interested in here, is actual evidence – not mere assertion or opinion – that Steve Bannon and/or Breitbart are “white nationalists” or white supremacists. If any exists. (I have a gut-feeling against it.)

UPDATE – I didn’t see this coming: Trump Wants To Deport [Only] As Many Undocumented Immigrants As Obama Already Has.

UPDATE: Spengler (David P. Goldman) describes Bannon as “100% pro-Israel” – which would be unusual for a white supremacist. And the worst against Bannon that Jonah Goldberg can muster, is that Bannon is part of the alt-Right. Yawn, so is Milo. Sorry, Jonah. I do love you, most of the time.

I am open to a point suggested in the comments, that under Bannon’s leadership, Breitbart.com has declined journalistically. But that’s a different matter. Being a poor journalist (arguably) doesn’t make you a racist.

Why Hillary Lost

I think this “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?” clip is a window into the soul of our dear Lady Bug Eyes. Turn off the sound and watch for what’s in her heart.

You may have a different impression, but I see something in her that could have started as frustration except it took a dark turn, into malice. To me, she looks like she wants revenge on the world. Mind you, this is pre-election and how she asks for some people’s votes.

On to a couple of articles.

  • More on Hillary’s conference call with her rich donors.

    V touched on this earlier. Camp Bug Eyes’ spin is that the media “eviscerated” Hillary, with the connivance of stupid FBI Directory Comey who kept the email scandal alive. Of course the opposite is true: the media was super pro-Hillary, with the connivance of sleazy FBI Directory Comey who did whatever he could to deaden the email scandal.

  • Victor Davis Hanson on Why Trump Won. A good summary. The man can write.
  • Democrats head for civil war. Seething Bernie-ites want to purge the Clintonites; who in turn, blame the Bernie-ites for general childishness and not turning out to vote.

The Slow Dawning of Belated Awareness

Posted by V the K at 10:42 am - November 10, 2016.
Filed under: Big Journalism,Media Bias

The Media totally let Hillary down this election. In 2012, they had no problem at all smearing Mitt Romney — by all accounts, a good and decent man with a successful record in business and Government — as a dog torturer who gave a poor gay kid a bad haircut and a woman cancer. Oh, and did you hear about how he wants to outlaw tampons… well, of course, that was a satirical website, but it certainly sounds like something he would do, doesn’t it?

Smearing Trump should have been an easy lay-up for them, and, boy, they sure did try, didn’t they? They brought out the Latin Beauty queen who (oh, what a horrible man) said Trump thought she needed to lose weight and ignored her involvement in organized crime. When screechy feminist Gloria Allred brought out her parade of women who had been “abused” by Trump thirty years ago, but only suddenly remembered the “abuse” when Hillary was running for president, the media was there. And when attacking Trump didn’t work, the media attacked his supporters. “What a bunch of ignorant, white, racist, stupid hicks.” (Because, surely, no respectable person would support the same candidate as those ignorant white racist stupid hicks.)

And this time, it didn’t work out so well for them.

In a few isolated patches of the Democrat Media Complex, a few are starting to wonder if maybe they are going about this the wrong way.

(more…)

Post-Trump

Good article from David Harsanyi, Democrats Have Only Themselves To Blame For Trump. A taste:

In all their vast coverage of agitated right-wingers, it may have escaped the attention of many in the media that over the past eight years the Democratic Party has moved dramatically to the left on an array of issues. It’s now a party of cultural imperialists and economic technocrats who want to rule through fiat. It is a party more comfortable coercing Americans who see the world differently than in convincing them. It is a movement propelled by a liberal punditry that’s stopped debating and resorted to smearing millions they disagree with.

And now, I’ll venture two predictions.

First, Hillary is done. You could say she’s young enough to run again. I say that she’s been hiding serious health issues (perhaps a contributing reason for the 10-hour delay in her concession speech). And under President Trump, she’ll be facing investigation for her long-standing corruption. Her balance of incentives will have shifted: it will be better for her to try to gain public sympathy, by playing the Brave Victim of Harrowing Illness. Which, shock of shocks, might even be somewhat truthful of her.

Next, media coverage of the economy will turn very negative. The economy has been quite poor for the last 8 years. The real unemployment rate, for example, is over 11%; not 4.9% as reported officially. The discrepancy arises from the MASSIVE drop in “labor force participation”, under President Obama. During his 8 years, tens of millions of Americans have given up even looking for a job. And once they stop looking, yup, they no longer count as unemployed.

That’s a scandal. And the media had zero interest in looking into it, because the answers would have reflected badly on Obama and Hillary. But, because (and only because) Trump will be President, the media will now discover this scandal and change their tune.

Another example: The economists and statisticians, I predict, will discover that the U.S. economy is in a recession. Not because the economy gets so much worse under Trump (although it might at first, if the current market-bubbles pop). Rather, because the economy has already been in a recession or close to it; and in order to nail President Trump, government-funded statisticians and talkers will now want to emphasize the bad. (Where before, they wanted to mask it.)

Mind you, these predictions might not happen tomorrow. Give me, say, up to a year.

Your predictions?

UPDATE – Made me laugh: John Ziegler of Mediaite thinks the reason Hillary lost is… because the media wasn’t enough on her side as they should have been. Yup. That’s what his stupid non-argument boils down to.

Left-Winger Admits: Yes, There Is a Democrat-Media Complex

Posted by V the K at 8:57 am - November 3, 2016.
Filed under: Media Bias

Self-proclaimed leftie Ken Silverstein agrees with me that the Democrat Party and the Mainstream Media are parts of the same machine.

“All governments are run by liars and nothing they say should be believed,” I.F. Stone once wrote. “Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations,” said George Orwell. For those two self-evident reasons, being “oppositional” is the only place political journalists should ever be, no matter who is in power or who is campaigning.

All during the campaign we have watched Hillary Clinton rehearse campaign themes and, almost as if by magic, the media amplifying those themes in seeming lockstep. The hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta have demonstrated that this was not mere happenstance, but, at least in part, resulted from direct coordination between the Clintonistas and the press.

There’s more… so much more.  He questions, for example, why Donald’s expressed admiration for Vladimir Putin is worse than Hillary’s well-documented coziness with the Saudis. I would answer, how many acts of terror on American soil have been committed by Russians?

His column is not just a rehash of the MFM’s well-documented cheerleading for Hillary and relentless attacks on Donald. He digs deeper, and discusses how the same incestuous relationships between wealthy donors, big financial interests, and dynastic power structures that have corrupted the political system have also corrupted the journalists who were supposed to be the watchdogs against a corrupt political system.

But I think he overlooks one of the reasons why this is, why there is an entrenched, insular political and media elite that are oblivious… indeed, contemptuous… of middle America. There is almost no chance for anyone with a working or middle class background to get a position in Big Media. Apart from lack of connections, a gig with a major news outfit requires working an unpaid internship in the most expensive cities in America…. New York or Washington. No one from a middle class background can afford that.

Milo Versus Some Knob from the BBC

Posted by V the K at 9:02 am - November 2, 2016.
Filed under: Media Bias

I see why a lot of the left hates Milo. They much prefer their opponents on the right to be supine, to concede The Narrative, to be awkward and apologetic about our beliefs. I don’t think everyone on the right should be a self-promoting provocateur, but our guys could take a few lessons in parrying the press from guys like Milo.

As I watched this video, what struck me is how formulaic and predictable the questions are from the interviewer. The media have Their Narrative, and so anyone on the right should be able to correctly predict their questions and parry them. The left’s media operatives, on the whole, are not that bright. Anyone should be able to do this.

I especially like his points about the incompetence and corruption of the Ruling Class; which is a massively under-reported story in the USA because our Democrat Media Complex considers itself part of the Ruling Class. I also like the way he makes the point that the left attempts to control language in order to control the debate. e.g. “You can’t talk about illegal immigration because it’s racist.”

“Democrat-Media Complex” Isn’t Just a Sarcastic Term Coined by a Handsome, Clever Blogger

Posted by V the K at 8:44 am - October 28, 2016.
Filed under: Media Bias

The Democrat-Media Complex is a real thing. Wikileaks has exposed that when the Hillary Campaign wants to put a narrative out that favors their candidate, they have a reliable network of Democrat Operatives posing as journalists and reporters to push their propaganda for them.

[D]ocuments listed those whom the campaign regarded as their most reliable “surrogates” — such as CNN’s Hilary Rosen and Donna Brazile, as well as Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden — but then also listed operatives whom they believed were either good “progressive helpers” or more potentially friendly media figures who might be worth targeting with messaging.

The names of those whom the Hillary campaign listed as reliable operatives won’t contain any surprises. Among them are Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell, Chris Hayes, and Mike Brezinski (all of NBC News); George Stephanopoulus (ABC News); David Brooks (the alleged Republican at the New York Times); Eugene Robinson, Dana Milbank, and EJ Dionne at the Washington Post; Mara Liasson (NPR) … it’s a pretty long list at the link.

This same sh-t happened back in 2008, too, for Obama. Remember “Journolist?” And that media operation was also exposed by a leak; not by “reporters” honestly admitting “Hey, before you read this story, you should know I coordinated with other reporters to make sure it advanced the Obama/Democrat narrative.”

And advancing the Democrat Narrative is precisely what have seen the media do throughout this every election cycle.

In 2016 — rather than talking about the five wars we’re in and how badly we’re faring in all of them, or the 1% “growth” economy (where 2.5-3% is needed just to keep pace with population expansion),and the rigging of the FBI itself, and Obamacare blowing up like a Samsung battery made entirely of Space-Age Kerosene, and the murderers’ row at the VA, and the graft and corruption, and on and on and on — Hillary has decided that the only issue in this campaign is Trump’s Moral Failings, and wouldn’t you know it, the media has agreed.

Isn’t it funny that every campaign is fought on the precise battlefield the Democrats have adjudged to be most advantageous for them, and every campaign cycle, the media conducts an encircling action around the Republican to guarantee he can only fight on that unfavorable field.

The best part about this ABC News interview with Milo is watching their “correspondent” constantly clutch at his pearls at the “mean” and “outrageous” things Milo has to say. Like, how dare he suggest that Leslie Jones isn’t attractive and Amy Schumer isn’t funny.

The pretentious intro is a hoot, as Asian reporter Tricia Takanawa intones, with a mix of anger and purpose, “Tonight, we confront… the Dark Side of Social Media.”

Apparently, confronting the Dark Side of Social media consists of sitting on a park bench talking to a gay guy.

So, judging by what I caught on CNN this morning:

  • An Olympic swimmer having a run-in with the Rio constabulary is a Major Story.
  • Donald Trump apologizing for stuff he said is a Major Story.
  • Hillary Clinton running the State Department as a Pay-for-Play operation, on the other hand, is *Not* a major story.
  • Barack Obama paying off the Iranians is also *Not* a major story.

There is statistical evidence that the observations are accurate.

The Media Have Always Smeared Republicans

Posted by V the K at 7:07 pm - July 27, 2016.
Filed under: Media Bias

Today at a press conference, a Democrat Media Operative reporter was pestering Donald Trump that he should feel bad about joking that the Russians should release the rest of Hillary’s emails. He shut her up by saying, “Be quiet. I know you want to save her.”

He’s right you know. The news media is part of the left, and they always have been.

You can start the timeline as far back as the World War II era. In 1944, Franklin Roosevelt told the country that if Republicans were returned to power, “even though we shall have conquered our enemies on the battlefields abroad, we shall have yielded to the spirit of fascism here at home.” The press nodded along.

In 1964, CBS News’s Daniel Schorr claimed that Barry Goldwater’s planned post-convention vacation in Europe was really an effort to coordinate with “right-wing Germans” in “Hitler’s one-time stomping ground.”
