LOL Bill Kristol … It isn’t just the left-leaning MSM that makes us scratch our heads. It is also the so-called conservative media, like Bill Kristol and The Weekly Standard. This time, TWS published an article saying that Trump must be getting ready to leave the GOP because he’s attacking Mitch McConnell. Um … if that’s the case, I know a lot of ordinary Republicans who are ready to leave too … oh wait, imagine if that happened.
Christians as scary as jihadis … Matthew Dowd, a former GOP political consultant who now proclaims his proud independence on Twitter, tweeted: “A fundamentalist radical Christian is just as misguided and frightening as a fundamentalist radical Muslim. No difference.” Why is that in a media criticism email? Well, Dowd is now the chief political analyst at ABC News. That’s what the inside-the-Beltway crowd thinks of you, folks.

Lane violation leads to deportation? … The Daily Beast tweeted: “A mom in Ohio was deported because she didn't change lanes.” Um … no … she was deported because she was driving without a license and she was in the country illegally. The violation, for not moving over for a stopped emergency vehicle, was why she was pulled over, but not why she was deported. The linked story makes that abundantly clear.
Russian plane invades US airspace … Journalist Caleb Ecarma noticed something fishy with a CNN story and its headline. Ecarma tweeted: “Headline: You Won't Believe The Crazy Shit That Just Went Down Between America & Russia / Actual article: jk lol.” Ecarma added two pictures to that tweet. One showed the headline: “Unarmed Russian Air Force jet overflies the Pentagon, Capitol, CIA.” The other showed that the program is part of a long-standing agreement allowing spy flights. These flights have been happening since the end of the Cold War.
Russia … Russia … Russia … The Nation, a far-left publication that endorsed Bernie Sanders for POTUS, published a bombshell story yesterday. The story calls into question the entire “Russia colluded with Trump narrative” … again. The magazine relays a report from a former NSA operative that claims the DNC email hack was not a hack, but a deliberate leak of emails from the DNC server. Unsurprisingly, the usual suspects, like CNN, have not caught on to that story a full day later.
I can’t fight back alone against the mainstream media. I need your help. There are two ways you can help.
