“Now, more than ever before.”
That is what Kerry Washington said, while hosting the DNC pageant. She was introducing a heartstring-tugging video about a little Hispanic girl’s letter to President Trump. It was full of slanders about President Trump’s words and policies.... [Read More]
Of course they did. See, the Portland Police have been sharing video of riots on social media.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against the Portland Police Bureau, challenging its livestreaming of protests.
The ACLU contends the bureau’s practice of filming and broadcasting protesters violates state law that prohibits police from collecting or maintaining information about the political, religious or social views, associations or activities of people who are not suspected of criminal activity.

Mollie keeps bringing the great corrections.
Fake News Media rushed to exclaim the news:... [Read More]
I have great hope for Attorney General William P. Barr. He has staked out a position and seems to be marshaling the needed forces to hold that position. He clearly must be making them sweat, because the Resistance attacks on him are getting longer and more unhinged. The latest example is a very long hit piece that is the main feature in the New Yorker.
This latest hatchet job is by David Rohde. I do not recommend that you read it. I will supply a link in a comment.
Instead, read the take-down by Mollie. She rips it to pieces, not by defending Barr, whose defense she leaves to others. No, Mollie goes to work on turf that she owns. Her counterattack on Barr’s behalf is based on journalistic malpractice.

At the Newport News airport, NASA is trying to convince travelers that astronauts have landed on Mars. Langley is celebrating its hundredth anniversary and thought this would be a good idea. The Christmas tree is not part of the mural so they’re not trying to convince us there’s a Christmas tree on Mars. Is it any wonder some people think the moon landing was faked?

This is a story from Chile. Or, perhaps it is a non-story from Chile.
Street protests turned violent in Santiago last week, and have persisted into this week. Anti-government protesters have been wearing masks, looking like AntiFa anarchists, and attacking government buildings.
Of course, once Leftist mobs turn violent, it is unlikely that their energy will maintain focus. They soon attacked another target. Catholic churches became prey for the mob. Several were looted for materials to add to street barricades. Statues of Jesus and Mary were destroyed.

Computer-generated articles aren’t new but now there’s a tool named Grover that you can use to make your own. Grover can also identify machine-generated articles. I love that their sample is a fake Paul Krugman article. Then again, I’m not so sure there are any real Krugman articles. It’s not entirely clear that Krugman could pass the Turing test.
I used Grover to generate a Krugman column for next October. It’s not too hard to detect that this column is fake but it would be a good starting point that could be touched up a human. I chose the headline, the author, the publication, and the date. Grover did the rest. Have fun.... [Read More]
“In a demand letter sent to CNN on Wednesday, an attorney working for the president outlined his intention to sue CNN for its willful misrepresentation of itself. For years, CNN has told viewers, advertisers, and sources that it is an unbiased, straight news outfit. That’s a lie, and the president’s lawyers believe it actually violates the federal Lanham Act’s prohibitions on false and misleading advertising.”
That is from Daily Caller. Here is more from the Washington Examiner:... [Read More]
A caper? A caper is a crime. In particular, a caper is a crime story that is so interesting that they made a movie or TV show about it. “Caper” in common parlance over the past four decades or so is only used to describe a crime that is somehow flamboyant.
So, here is a headline from Politico. It is currently featured at the default page on Google News:
“Giuliani and associate give conflicting accounts on origins of Ukrainian caper”

Mollie described in detail the slimy attacks on Brett Kavanaugh during his Confirmation hearings. She wrote the book, along with coauthor Carrie Severino of the Judicial Crisis Network. She predicted that more slimy attacks should be expected.
Mollie learned of the upcoming book release of a book about Justice Kavanaugh, by two New York Times reporters. She anticipated more slime to be ginned up by the Talking Snake Media. She started monitoring their pre-launch media appearances. (She probably had to fight a little urge to jealousy, too, since they got the sort of media appearances that were never available to her and Ms. Severino.)... [Read More]
Last year I wrote a dozen posts to report on the assaults by mass media on Evangelical Christians. I cited the many hatchet-job articles and a representative handful (out of many dozens) of editorials from mass media to document their collective attempt to suppress Trump voters and boost Democrat prospects in the 2018 midterm elections. Things quieted down after Christmas, but then heated up over abortion when a number of red states were working on bills to restrict abortion. The focus stayed on Culture of Death issues all spring, with a few occasional bursts of Catholic-bashing thrown in.
But now I see signs of a renewed energy in media attacks on Evangelicals. This looks like the ramp-up to 2020 campaigning. I am not alleging any conspiracy. All I am pointing out is that journalists as a group hate President Trump and hate the voters who put him in office. Since they are overwhelmingly irreligious, they neither understand nor wish to understand the concerns of Christians. ... [Read More]
I suppose everyone saw that a terrorist had tried to bomb an ICE facility in Tacoma using Molotov cocktails and a propane tank bomb, and was killed in a shootout.
I doubt if any of you learned anything of the details, because journalists seemed really un-curious and unwilling to follow up. The details got left out; there was no reporting on several aspects of the attacker and his motives, which were vaguely reported as “unclear” by media outlets hostile to ICE.... [Read More]
Ramadan ended last week. Here is the tally.
No casualties in America this year. A pretty big number overall. 911 killed and 1006 wounded. Do you recall seeing any of this in the news? Didn’t think so.

RedState has an interesting post up about recent work by Dr. Eoin Lenihan to establish that a scattered collection of journalists have multiple ties to Antifa.
Antifa, yeah, those guys. The violent mask-wearing thugs who roughed up Trump fans and shut down some free speech rallies. Real terrorists.... [Read More]
I put up a couple of recent posts to observe on a surge of obituaries on the news business. But all y’all internet denizens are still reading news. You just don’t take daily newspapers anymore, and only a very tiny share of y’all subscribe to any kind of news provider. That is the way most of us operate any more. But information flow, especially the flow of recent events information, aka ‘news,’ is now screened for most receivers of news by evil Google.
Yeah, I know; some Ratburghers are boycotting Google by using DuckDuckGo and a couple of other search engine alternatives. But the problem remains. Over half of all news articles that are accessed on the internet were landed on through an evil-Google search, which means that evil Google gets a shot at screening the news for over half of all internet news consumption. This finding comes from a Northwestern University study that was recently presented at the “2019 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems” that was held in Glasgow.
