CNN’s Jim Acosta is a man who has singlehandedly done as much as anyone else to destroy modern journalism. He sits in the White House and wages his own personal agenda, and probably that of CNN, while pretending to be an unbiased journalist. It used to be that White House journalists at least tried to cover up their liberal bias, which has always existed. In
The press has fallen so, so far. As a former member of the mainstream media who took his job seriously and was proud to be part of the profession, it saddens me greatly. Worse, it is so detrimental to our republic. As pointed out in an excellent column by Becket Adams in the Washington Examiner, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the following about
And I assume the Ronald Reagan part is not a compliment either. PBS Newshour White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor certainly has a right to her opinion. But she does not have the right to be seen as a neutral “White House correspondent,” particularly for a network funded by taxpayers. Here are some of the shocking things she said the other night, commenting on President Trump’s
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany neatly shut down Jonathan Karl’s question suggesting a potentially racist motive for President Trump’s derision of Black Lives Matter, noting Trump is talking about the organization, which is egregious. Karl, a veteran inquisitor who to his credit also went hard after Barack Obama’s spokespeople, nevertheless gets his head handed to him here.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany today cited a list of mistakes the New York Times has made with respect to President Trump and suggested returning its Pulitzer Prizes. Well, that presupposes that Pulitzers aren’t political and are worth having in the first place. I would say that after caving to leftist pressure and saying it should not have run Sen. Tom Cotton’s perfectly reasonable
Ah yes, where would we be without the Washington Post? As the Post byline states, Democracy Dies in Darkness. So their White House reporter, Philip Bump, who is supposed to be obejctive, “ran an analysis” that shed a lot of light on a vital issue. One of the 20 cities Trump cited as most dangerous and run by Democrats is IN FACT RUN BY AN
The White House Correspondents Association announced Tuesday that its annual dinner, which has already been postponed from its usual spring date, has now been canceled because of the coronavirus. From a statement by WHCA President Jonathan Karl of ABC News: With great regret, we will have to cancel our planned dinner on Aug. 29. We’ve been working hard to reconfigure the dinner in ways to make
This was a fun exchange. CNN’s Jim Acosta, who continues the process of destroying journalism by personalizing the news while representing an organization that is supposed to be objective, accused the president of exploiting children and producing fake news, pointing to a tweeted video that satirized CNN’s own distortion of the news. From the exchange, which appears below: ACOSTA: The President tweeted out some fake videos,
Trump campaign advisor Jenna Ellis called CNN media critic Brian Stelter an “activist” after he went after her in personal terms.
Journalism is already so far gone. Why not just be honest about it? New York Times Magazine staff writer Nikole Hannah-Jones said on CNN Sunday that Republicans have “gone rogue,” so there’s not need to be evenhanded. That as the Democrats drift toward socialism. She said: I think what happened is a larger symptom that we’re seeing in news organizations across the country, which is
According to a memo by White House Correspondents’ Association President Jonathan Karl of ABC News: Today the White House press office positioned seating for the President’s Rose Garden “news conference” in a way that violated the federal government’s guidelines on social distancing and needlessly put reporters health at risk. The chairs were initially positioned in a way that was consistent with social distancing guidelines but
