Legal Insurrection founder and publisher and Cornell University Law Professor William Jacobson voiced his anger and astonishment at the channel’s removal. “It’s very frustrating, it’s very scary, to have 8 years of content removed without a chance to defend yourself,” he told FoxNews.com.
The mainstream media is in full meltdown mode after President-elect Donald Trump pushed back against CNN and BuzzFeed for pushing a story based on a leaked “dossier” of unverified and scurrilous allegations.
Trump pushed back during a press conference on Wednesday in which he refused to allow CNN to ask a question and called the network “fake news”.
However, while the media is lamenting the fact that Trump is defending himself against CNN and other left-wing news outlets, they were largely silent as President Barack Obama routinely attacked Fox News for 8 years.
Thanks to CNN and BuzzFeed, a war now rages among corporate media outlets, a true study in irony, as the New York Times and Guardian hurl accusations the two outlets are guilty of publishing Fake News — the same Fake News all of the aforementioned have cited in unabashed attempts to discredit legitimate alternative media.
One day in late November, an earth and environmental science professor named Nathan Phillips visited Breitbart News for the first time. Mr. Phillips had heard about the hateful headlines on the site — like “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy” — and wondered what kind of companies would support such messages with their ad dollars.

On Thursday, cast members from the Star Trek franchise set their phasers to stun against Donald Trump. Stars from the various Star Trek shows including liberal activist George Takei joined director J.J. Abrams in signing an open letter against Trump because: “Never has there been a presidential candidate who stands in such complete opposition to the ideals of the Star Trek… His election would take this country backward, perhaps disastrously.”
The Secure Fence Act of 2006’s stated purpose was to check the flow of illegal immigrants, drugs, and other illegal goods into the U.S. by erecting a double-layer fence along large swaths of the border. The law also generally increased funding for border security, authorizing funds for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to purchase cameras, drones, and other assets.
A 22-year-old American expatriate beginning my fifth year in Canada, I’ve been sitting up north biting my fingernails as I half-resent, half-relish my front-row seat to the chaotic U.S. election. And as I sit and watch I am bewildered that in 2016, in the “land of opportunity,” one misguided man’s rhetoric — composed entirely of spite and colonialist propaganda — could still be enjoying so much traction.
Artist Brian Andrew Whiteley’s “Trump Tomstone,” a fake tombstone belonging to the Republican presidential candidate which caused a media frenzy when it appeared in Central Park in March, will go on display Friday at an art gallery in Brooklyn.
