Newsweek “fact check” … Greg Price of Newsweek did a “fact-check” entitled “Did Russia send money to Bill Clinton’s foundation like Trump says? Fact checking the president’s claim.” Here’s the key part: “All told, $145 million went to the Clinton Foundation from those linked to Uranium One and UrAsia, but it went to the charity organization and not the Clinton family. Furthermore, most of those donations occurred before and during Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign, according to The Post.”
And the “assessment” of Price? “Yes, the foundation received money and Bill Clinton was paid to give a speech, but there’s no evidence the Clintons were paid by Russians to push through the uranium deal.” Yes, that is really his conclusion. One hundred forty-five million dollars but nah we couldn’t find anything. Are these folks serious?
Still no CNN … CNN has continued to ignore the almost daily bombshell stories coming out of Circa and The Hill on the Russian Uranium One scandal. National Review’s Andy McCarthy – a former U.S. Attorney – took them, and the rest of the media to task over the weekend. He makes the case that the whole ordeal is textbook racketeering.
CNN and the rotten apple … LOL, CNN wants you to know that it is “fact based.” Despite just not covering big stories, and often getting things wrong, they want you to know that they are the place to turn to when you want to know if a fruit is an apple or a banana. No really, Variety outlines their new ad campaign. It’s hilarious. Or perhaps CNN just became self-aware. I helpfully tweeted to the CNN folks in new language they may understand.
Definitely a banana … Poor CNN picked the wrong day to start this campaign. Over the weekend they tweeted out a map claiming Japan was South Korea. That was definitely a banana not an apple.

Former NPR head outlines liberal bias … The former head of NPR wanted to see for himself if there really was media bias that stems from the majority of decisions being made in the Northeast Acela corridor. What he found after travelling the country for a year shocked him. And led to a great awakening within him. His op-ed in the NY Post is a must-read. It covers the divide on guns, and many other issues.
ESPN’s Jemele Hill speaks … Jemele Hill the recently suspended Sports Center anchor, told TMZ Sports that she “deserved” her “suspension” for her incendiary tweets aimed at President Donald Trump. She is set to return to the show.
Jimmy Carter defends Trump … In a bombshell interview with the New York Times, former President Jimmy Carter said that Russia didn’t affect the 2016 election, and that Trump is being unfairly treated by the media. The Daily Wire has all the highlights.
