Call the waambulance … Poor Jim Acosta, Trump’s mean girl Sarah Huckabee Sanders is bullying him again by not calling on him. Yesterday Acosta started whining again on Twitter about never being called on by Sanders in the press briefings. Then he added the hilarious aside that Obama always called on Fox. Which raises two issues: First, is this Acosta admitting he’s biased, a leftist version of Fox News? Second, it is pretty well documented that the Obama administration loathed and punished Fox News regularly.
Not what Camerota was expecting … WATCH THIS! No, really, go watch it. OK, are you back? Was that not the most amazing thing you’ve seen on TV in a while? CNN’s Alysin Camerota asked a panel of Trump supporters if they were upset at all by Trump’s response to Charlottesville. She was shocked by their silence. One guy openly laughed at her. A black female supporter of Trump just stood there shaking her head.
Speaking of that supporter … Camerota further pressed the black supporter of Trump to diss the president, and she would not budge. CNS News has the story of how Daphne Coggins “stood her ground” against Camerota. Especially when Camerota “tried to portray her as a neo-Nazi sympathizer.”

Time editor discusses the scientific basis for a meme … Yesterday Donald Trump retweeted a rather hilarious meme of him eclipsing Barack Obama. Rather than laugh at the obvious joke, Jeffrey Kluger, editor at large for Time magazine, decided he needed to attack the president for using a meme that “doesn’t make scientific sense.” There’s only one word for lacking any sense of humor whatsoever. Sad!
Why is the Left attacking free speech? … Writing in The Atlantic, Conor Friedersdorf outlines “The Most Shortsighted Attack on Free Speech in Modern U.S. History.” He questions why the Left is trying to silence speech it doesn’t like and warns of the consequences of a blowback. It approaches the TLDR category but is well worth the read.
A sober reminder … As I have been noting almost daily in my FB Live videos on the Conservative Review Facebook page, the media continually forgets that a man radicalized by MSNBC and Rachel Maddow to think all Republicans are racists and fascists tried to kill 20 percent of the GOP members of congress just two months ago. Instapundit reminded the NY Times Business Twitter account of that fact yesterday. The media keeps thinking Trump is going to cause someone to act against the media, while lacking any self-awareness to realize the media has already inspired someone to act against Republicans in a violent way.
I can’t fight back alone against the mainstream media. I need your help. There are two ways you can help. First, send your friends – and even your enemies – over to the WTF MSM!? email subscription page and get them sign up. Second, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with anything questionable you see the media do. Together, we can fight back.
