Remember when they said this about Obama? … At the six-month point, CNN ran a story this morning entitled, “Trump tests the limits of presidential power.” Funny, I don’t remember a similar story about the presidency of Barack Obama.
Fox News and the WSJ plagiarizing? … Ricochet’s Jon Gabriel noted that both the WSJ and Fox News failed to credit him for his excellent analysis showing that what people in the media care about and what everyday people care about are vastly different. He got the WSJ to issue a correction and credit him. Hey, Fox News, what gives?
Media colluded with Russia? … A senior Obama administration intelligence professional claims that the media colluded with Russia in the 2016 election. CNN’s Jim Sciutto, himself an Obama administration alum, was incredulous at the claim. Sciutto’s argument was, basically, isn’t collusion willing? The other official said it was either that or you were basically rubes.

Who passes legislation? … CNN decided to troll the president with a push notification. In the notification, CNN said, “In 6 months, Pres. Trump has tweeted 991 times, spent 40 days at Trump golf properties and passed 0 pieces of major legislation.” The omission of an Oxford comma aside, the notification is laughable. Maybe someone should tell CNN who “passes legislation.” Hint: It isn’t the president. The Hill tweeted out the story.
LA Times forces reporter to delete tweet … In a rush to win the coveted award of who can make the biggest ass of themselves over McCain’s cancer diagnosis, Jessica Roy, the “engagement editor” of the LA Times, tweeted out an unsubstantiated story about a personal friend whom McCain supposedly told to move to get insurance coverage for brain cancer. The Times decided it didn’t meet the paper’s standards, and she was forced to remove the tweet. The problem is the fake news got 10,000 RTs and the correction got under a hundred.
