Media’s “true allegiance” revealed in Antifa’s violent attack on Faith Goldy

My former Rebel colleague, independent conservative journalist Faith Goldy, was attacked by Antifa thugs at the Quebec-U.S. border.

It happened at Roxham Road, an area that’s a well known point of entry for migrants fleeing possible deportation from the U.S., by illegally entering Canada.

Animals of the press

So where were we? Oh yes. We left off with the media, led by The New York Times, remembering, through screaming headlines, that “Israel killed dozens of Palestinians” but later on, oops, forgetting to mention that most of them, 90 percent, were active members of Hamas – animals, in other words.

We’ll get to the “animal” part in a moment.

Meantime I am beginning to call this Wishful Journalism.

US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman: Liberal media sides with Hamas over Trump

This past Monday, the United States at long last opened its embassy to Israel in Jerusalem, Israel’s capital. The opening occurred 70 years to the day that Harry Truman led the United States to be the first nation to recognize Israel as a sovereign nation. The event, authorized and directed by President Trump, was a moving tribute to the enduring and unique friendship between our nation and the State of Israel.

Here’s the real story on the Palestinian ‘protest’

Israel has the right to defend itself.

It has every right to protect its people and defend its borders against attacking mobs and armed terrorists trying to target and murder Jewish citizens.

But judging from the media coverage of the clashes along Israel’s border – the border that separates Israel from the terrorist-run Gaza Strip – there seems to be an expectation that Israeli forces simply give up and cede ground to the terrorist organizations seeking to destroy them.

Behind the smoke screen

You can see why NBC News might want to smear the work of the Gatestone Institute (the dirty work I wrote about here yesterday). Gatestone has postedPierre Rehov’s video Behind the Smoke Screen on Hamas’s Gaza production. From inside Gaza, Rehov reports the reality of the so called “peaceful demonstrations.” He invites viewers: “Watch Hamas hate speeches. See how they build their propaganda at the expense of brainwashed, deceived and manipulated unfortunate people. Understand why Israel has no choice but to protect itself using lethal force.” Like Richard Kemp’s Gatestone column “Smoke & Mirrors” yesterday, Rehov’s video is more informative than the sum total of everything NBC News has on offer today.

Why Does the Media Keep Encouraging Hamas Violence?

If this were the first time that Hamas deliberately provoked Israel into self-defense actions that resulted in the unintended deaths of Gaza civilians, the media could be excused for playing into the hands of Hamas. The most recent Hamas provocations — having 40,000 Gazans try to tear down the border fence and enter Israel with Molotov cocktails and other improvised weapons — are part of a repeated Hamas tactic that I have called the “dead baby strategy.” Hamas’ goal is to have Israel kill as many Gazans as possible so that the headlines always begin, and often end, with the body count. Hamas deliberately sends women and children to the front line, while their own fighters hide behind these human shields.

Hamas leaders have long acknowledged this tactic.

NBC News Defames Gatestone Institute

In what has been described as a desperate attempt “to keep the failing Russiagate conspiracy theory alive,” NBC News has published a false and defamatory report about Gatestone Institute. The article, originally published on April 23, 2018, has since been has been altered online several times.

The original report libels Gatestone Institute as an “anti-Muslim think tank” that is “part of an echo chamber that includes Russian media.” It is the NBC report, however, that seems to be part of an “echo chamber” to damage and delegitimize the current, duly elected, administration — and anyone ever associated with it — while using Gatestone Institute as a tool do that.

Jordan Peterson smeared as alt right at NBC Nightly News

From Scott Greer at Daily Caller:

NBC News thinks popular psychologist Jordan Peterson is an “alt-right intellectual.” [Here.]

In a segment that aired Saturday, NBC portrayed Peterson as a dangerous man who seeks to use “psychology, religion and biology to justify the same inequality the Left opposes.”

Throughout the report, the Canadian professor is portrayed as a “favorite figure of the alt-right” — even though the alt-right is never defined. More.

Reality check: Of course alt right is never defined. If it were, even NBC News viewers would realize that Jordan Peterson is not alt right.

Traditional media today may survive by retailing falsehoods of this sort to willing hearers but that amounts to saying that informing the public is no longer really one of their goals.

The Definitive List Of Media Screw-Ups On The Trump-Russia Story

The major correction issued by NBC Thursday on a story about wiretaps and Michael Cohen was just another reminder of the many media mistakes on the Russian collusion story.

NBC initially claimed that federal investigators were listening in on Cohen’s phone calls, but it turns out they had what’s called a “pen register warrant,” which means they could see who Cohen spoke to on the phone but could not hear what was said.

White House correspondents’ dinner: Michelle Wolf shocks media with Sarah Sanders attack

The comedian Michelle Wolf stunned guests at a prestigious media dinner in Washington with a risque speech that eviscerated members of Donald Trump’s administration, some of whom were in the room.

Sean Spicer, the former White House press secretary, told the Guardian he thought the performance was “absolutely disgusting”, but others praised Wolf for pulling no punches about the president and his aides.

She drew gasps from some in the 3,000-strong audience at the Hilton hotel when she turned her fire on Spicer’s successor, Sarah Sanders, sitting just a few feet away at the head table.

FATAH: Soaked in blood, Toronto the Good

It was only after CBS News first identified Alek Minassian as the suspect that we learned who had struck horror on our lovely city.

This was just one of the issues that caused vigorous debate on social media in Canada. How was it that CBS News was able to identify the name and past record of Alek Minassian, but CBC News could not?

Is it possible journalists north of the border have become so terrified of being called racist or right-wing that they would rather compromise their professional standards than face harassment by left-wing trolls? Trolls who it seemed were in mass communal prayers hoping the killer would turn out to be a White Male Christian.
