Exactly … While President Donald Trump was giving his speech at the United Nations, CR’s Jordan Schachtel succinctly predicted the media reaction. Schachtel tweeted: “Trump speech was direct refutation of Obama admin foreign policy. That’s why u will see unhinged FP pundits in newsmedia bash it day & night.” When the president says, “The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented,” what else would you expect?
The Independent thinks socialism line was a “joke” … The Independent, a left-leaning London paper, as if on cue, called the socialism line “a joke” gone bad, saying that Trump was waiting for a laugh after the line. Trump did pause, but it was for the applause he thought would come when speaking the truth about the most violent ideology of the last century, whose proponents have killed more people than any other ideology’s.
L.A. Times not a fan … The editorial board of the Los Angeles Times called the speech, which many conservatives think was the best of his career, “needlessly offensive.” Looks like Schachtel was right: stating moral clarity to those on the Left is often seen by them as “offensive.” The Times said Trump’s line on socialism was a “gratuitous insult” and a “simplistic denunciation.” Nothing like letting us see right behind the curtain.

Levin reacts … When Mark Levin made the case, based on media reports, that the Obama administration was surveilling people close to Trump, he was scoffed at by the MSM. Having been proven right, Levin said on his radio show last night that “Obama had to know” about the FISA warrant applications regarding former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.
Media’s obfuscation … CR’s Chris Pandolfo took a look at “11 times the MSM smeared Levin over Trump camp wiretapping.” From CNN to the New York Times, it’s all there. I took a closer look at the reactions of CNN’s Brian Stelter and ABC’s Brian Ross to the CNN “bombshell” that wasn’t.
WSJ on CNN … The Wall Street Journal’s James Freeman is now asking the question that Levin has asked since the beginning: What did Obama know about the wiretapping and when did he know it? He was also very perplexed as to why CNN was focusing on Trump’s reaction, rather than the revelation that the government was spying on political opponents.
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 [email protected] with anything questionable you see the media do. Together, we can fight back.
