Blue Checkmarks Delete Tweets Defaming Covington Catholic Kids After Footage Shows They Were Not Aggressors

When an edited clip of Catholic teenagers surrounding a Native American man first emerged, it was billed as evidence of racist high school students harassing an Indigenous person.

Journalists, celebrities, and others with blue checkmarks on Twitter rushed to condemn the kids as racists, even though it was clear from the beginning that something was amiss.

Young man in D.C. march video denounces ‘outright lies’ about him

The young man at the center of what has been described as a hostile confrontation with an Omaha tribal elder last week denounced what he called “outright lies” on Sunday, saying he was actually trying to remain calm to defuse the tense situation.

“I am the student in the video who was confronted by the Native American protestor,” the young man, Nick Sandmann, a junior at Covington Catholic High School in Covington, Kentucky, said in a statement his family issued through a public relations firm.

It was the hate crime of the century.

Or so some in the media appeared to think, judging by the condemnations and mass hysteria that followed initial footage of a group of Covington Catholic High School students — some of whom were wearing MAGA hats — supposedly harassing an older Native American man.

Have We Finally Lost It?

The first time I saw the snippet of the MAGA kid / Native American drummer video, my reaction was about the same as most other people’s.

“What a jerk that kid is.”

“Somebody needs to teach him a lesson.”

“I hope the school punishes him.”

Now, some 12 or so hours later, my opinion on the matter is decidedly different.

‘Schmucks with Underwoods’

The first rule of journalism is, as in screenwriting, “show, don’t tell.” It’s no wonder early Hollywood was populated with ex-newspapermen, who took their fastest-typewriters-in-the-West from New York and Chicago to the actual West and hired themselves out as scenarists and, when the talkies came, screenwriters. As Herman Mankiewicz wrote to Ben Hecht: “millions are to be grabbed out here and your only competition is idiots.” Less appealingly, Jack Warner referred to his hired scribes as “schmucks with Underwoods.”

Media silent after fake ‘hate crime’ involving the murder of a little girl, exposed

The shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes in Houston set off a media frenzy when the mother and sister of the victim described the shooter as a white male, “with blue eyes, a thin build and no beard. They say he ‘looked sick’ with sunken cheekbones and a pale face with a ‘five o’clock shadow.’ He was wearing a black hoodie.”

The sister was even more helpful, giving authorities enough information to develop a sketch of the “killer” who, the mother says, “intentionally” targeted her daughter.

How The Media Fueled Yet Another Racism Hoax, And Ruined The Life Of An Autistic Woman In The Process

At first, it appeared to be just another story about a white person calling the cops on a black person over the summer — a supposedly racially motivated phone call to the police that caught international attention out of hundreds of others.

Stories of police arriving to scenes across the United States to find black people committing “crimes” of barbequingsleeping in a university dorm common room or selling water bottleswere taking over the media. With each story, a white person made the phone call, and each caller was given a memorable nickname. In this case, the caller was named “Doorway Debbie.”

Germany’s Leading Magazine Published Falsehoods About American Life

The word spiegel means “mirror” in German, and since its postwar founding, Der Spiegel has proudly held a mirror up to the world. When the magazine published top-secret information about the dire state of West Germany’s armed forces in 1962, the government accused it of treason, raided its offices, and arrested its editors. The resulting “Spiegel affair” led to mass demonstrations against police-state tactics and established an important precedent for press freedom in the young democracy. Throughout its history, the newsweekly has helped set the national agenda, like Time in its heyday.

Over the past weeks, however, the name of the magazine has assumed a new relevance. Der Spiegel has cracked, and revealed ugliness within the publication as well as German society more broadly.

That whole “Allahu Akbar” thing just wasn’t deemed newsworthy by Canadian Media

What sort of “Canadian” screams Allahu Akbar and makes Bomb Threats?

We may never know, Canadian media refused to include that little detail when reporting on the story.

Not a word in their coverage of the Bomb Threat made New Year’s Eve at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport from CTV, Global and the CBC .

The 2018 Breitbart News Fake News Awards

Writing this was easy. Compiling it was a muthah.

Until you actually take the time to research the amount of lies and lies and lies the establishment media deliberately spread, you can’t begin to fathom just how bad things are. By the time I was done going through the entire year, I literally, no joke, had 11 pages of headlines to choose from for these awards.

Remember the good old days when “bias” was the media’s biggest problem?

The American Media, Suckered Again

…Well, I was right – not only in my prediction that Time would make him their “Man of the Year”, as an heroic journalist who paid the ultimate price, but also in the larger sense. His newspaper, The Washington Post, now publishes a story blandly headlined “Khashoggi’s Final Months: An Exile in the Long Shadow of Saudi Arabia” – and way, way deep into the piece, you realize it’s not an elegy at all but a modified, limited hang-out to get the Post off an awkward hook and discreetly disclose they were duped…

Media still unglued in 2018

From Brent Bozell and Tim Graham at Townhall:

The comparisons to dictators (especially Hitler) were once shocking, but no longer. These smears arrive almost daily. Take perpetually malcontent Steve Schmidt lecturing on MSNBC. Trump “creates a mass sense of victimization amongst his base,” he said. “And then he asserts extraordinary claims of power to protect the victims from the scapegoated populations and the nefarious conspiracy. That is fundamentally illiberal, deeply un-American, and, frankly, could be straight out of Munich circa 1928.”More.

Reality check: Only some of the public actually feels the way so much of the media does about US2016. Again, that’s why some media are getting progressive government bailouts, as in Canada, and others are getting jobs delivering packages for Amazon, as in the States. In an age when we don’t need MSNBC, in particular, to tell us the weather or the stock market, the culturally less relevant grandees are a ready market for the idea that the government must do something about independent news gathering and a powerful force in spreading the idea that thinking for oneself is a danger. They didn’t used to think that way because they didn’t used to feel threatened.

Rex Murphy: Time is wrong. Today’s journalists are not ‘guardians of the truth’

Time, that tattered, shrunken revenant of a once-popular news magazine, continues in its endless decline to delude itself that it has either the authority or the competence to name the “Person of the Year.” Brilliantly it named journalists — “The Guardians” — as 2018’s collective heroes, with Jamal Khashoggi given pride of place on the once-iconic cover. Time neglected to check on Khashoggi and now finds that it nominated a Qatar stooge, whose columns were midwifed by officers in the Qatar government, and whose “journalistic” career was but a distracting pendant to his many more serious activities, latterly as an anti-Saudi lobbyist, nephew to the one-time world’s biggest arms dealer, and a host of other shadowy mésalliances.

Bombshell: New Info Says Khashoggi Was A Foreign Influence Agent

Jamal Khashoggi’s op-eds published in the very influential Washington Post certainly qualify as attempts to change U.S. policy against Saudi Arabia and in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Washington Post has caused itself a major scandal since it has come to light they and their martyred “reformer” Jamal Khashoggi were publishing anti-Saudi propaganda for Qatar. They tried to bury this in a pre-Christmas Saturday news dump, but that can’t stop the damage this will do to their reputation.

“Text messages between Khashoggi and an executive at Qatar Foundation International show that the executive, Maggie Mitchell Salem, at times shaped the columns he submitted to The Washington Post, proposing topics, drafting material and prodding him to take a harder line against the Saudi government,” the Post wrote December 21.
