What happens when a journalist “exposes” a document ostensibly produced by a secretive organization which had supposedly engaged in clandestine means and then it emerges that the document was produced by another organization? And what happens when it turns out that the organization that really did produce the document did so entirely by scouring open sources and then published the document online for all to see? The journalist’s cloak-and-dagger scoop deflates into a total non-story.
Multiple journalists, activists, and former Obama administration officials spread blatant falsehoods during Memorial Day weekend aimed at smearing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Trump administration.
Here’s a thing that absolutely never happened, but that isn’t stopping liberals from believing every word. Journalist Lesley Stahl claims that President Trump confessed to her that he only goes after the media to wreck their credibility when they report negative truths about him. What are the chances that Trump is going to tell a journalist the exact thing that they accuse him of? I’ll answer that one: the chances are somewhere South of zero.
The study, led by Tara Swart, a neuroscientist and leadership coach, analysed 40 journalists from newspapers, magazines, broadcast, and online platforms over seven months. The participants took part in tests related to their lifestyle, health, and behaviour.
The author, Nellie Bowles, can’t hold back her obvious antipathy for her subject; instead, she lets her sneering condescension drop from every comma. She never lets Peterson spell out an argument; she satisfies her id with every snide aside. It’s an extraordinary performance by a person deliberately attempting to misunderstand her subject.
Conservative author and radio host Mark Levin blasted the mainstream media’s coverage surrounding Israel’s response to the Palestinians’ violent protests following the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem. The media, Levin said, “have blood on their hands” for continuing to fall for the tactics of Hamas, who use human shields as props for the cameras so the press will unfairly blame the Israeli government for the violence.
Levitz begins his diatribe with the basic assumption that conservative are basically racist: “For decades, many of the American right’s most influential voices had rejected those supposedly shared values, and many of the conservative movement’s animating ideas were manifestly arational and racist.”
Canadian Journalists for Free Expression has called an emergency meeting to reconsider a statement it released earlier this month condemning “one-sided use” of military force against journalists and civilians in Gaza and asking Canada to pressure Israel to initiate an investigation into “the massacre.”
The statement triggered controversy over the journalistic organization’s mandate. In the days since it was released, critics have slammed the statement for overstepping the group’s role in defending free expression domestically and around the world, and for seemingly taking a position in the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict.
At an emergency meeting Tuesday evening, the board was expected to determine its next steps and reconsider the process statements go through before being published.

Search engine and advertising monolith Google continued to press its offensive against alternative media this week with an announcement unveiling a new $300 million project called the Google News Initiative.
“Whiteness is an academic term that describes a system of race-based hierarchy. Whiteness does not mean white people. Whiteness does not mean white people are bad. You don’t even have to be a white person to subscribe to whiteness. Whiteness is a term that facilitates the understanding of racism as being not just personal ignorance but systemic discriminations.”
See? Whiteness is all about how white societies are intrinsically racist because well “white people”. But that’s not racist you H8tr’s!
