Pence slams Joy Behar, ABC News over ‘religious intolerance’

Vice President Mike Pence delivered a jaw-dropping rebuke of ABC News after “The View” host Joy Behar compared Christianity to mental illness. “To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” Pence said Wednesday on C-SPAN. “It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.” Behar’s anti-Christian remarks were in response to a segment on Omarosa Manigault Newman, the reality television star turned White House staffer turned reality television star. “As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence — everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life,” Omarosa said in a clip from “Celebrity Big Brother.” “I am Christian. I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things,” Omarosa told her fellow contestants. Well, that bit of news was more than Behar and the other gals on “The View” could stomach. “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct, hearing voices,” Behar declared. Pence said on C-SPAN that his faith is the most important thing in his life. “My faith sustains me in all that I do,” he said. The vice president said “The View” hosts insulted the “vast majority of the American people who cherish faith.” “It demonstrates how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people that you could have a major network like ABC permit a forum for invective against religion like that,” he said. Well, if hearing the voice of God means that a Christian is mentally insane – then add my name to that list. Because – just like Vice President Pence — I too — have heard the voice of God. And I suspect many faithful followers of Jesus have heard His voice — including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Does Behar believe that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was mentally insane, too? Later on Tuesday’s program, Behar backtracked slightly — but held firm to her belief that listening to Jesus is odd behavior. “I think Mike Pence, say what you want about him and his religiosity. I don’t think he’s mentally ill. Even though he is saying he hears voices I don’t think he’s that crazy,” she said. Oh, she only thinks Christians are just a little crazy. Whatever. If ABC News wants to employ an anti-Christian bigot — that is their business. It’s a free country. But let’s be honest — had Joy Behar said about gay people what she said about Christians — she would’ve been fired on the spot and hauled out of the studio on live television.

Agreed, Todd.  Veteran culture warrior Todd Starnes is responsible for that piece.  Todd, of course, is exactly right.  Joy Behar is a nauseating, extreme liberal blow hard.  And, if you listen to her talk, she’s stunningly stupid.  She just spouts whatever liberal talking points the DNC, or other Democratic party organ, feeds her, and really has no command of the issues or the nuances of policies, etc.  And, she goes into these silly, ad hominem personal attacks on various random Republicans because…well, they’re Republicans.  That’s it.  If you’re a Republican, she hates you and is very open about it.  She won’t listen to you or consider a viewpoint that isn’t in line with what her approved, Democrat party talking points consider acceptable.  And, in fact, she’ll shout you down and belittle you and your viewpoints if they are conservative or Republican in nature.  Have ya ever noticed how much turn over there is in the one Republican position on The View over the years?

CNN slammed for glowing puff piece about Kim Jong Un’s sister at Olympics

CNN is getting dragged online for writing a glowing puff piece about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister appearing at the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea — with a headline claiming she was “stealing the show.” The article, published Saturday afternoon, began with these cooing words about the woman who gave South Korean President Moon Jae-in an invite to visit North Korea: “If ‘diplomatic dance’ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un’s younger sister would be favored to win gold. With a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea’s presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.” It barely referenced the North Korean regime’s murderous ways — and critics called out CNN for it. Still, despite the almost-immediate backlash from people on both sides of the political aisle, CNN has not taken down its story. When Fox News reached out for comment, CNN would not say whether it would remove the story or discipline any editors over the controversial article. CNN anchor Chris Cuomo defended his left-leaning network by throwing in a dig at President Donald Trump. He tweeted to one reader, “You don’t think having a President who lies about what is ‘fake’ and actively maligns the free press out of convenience is a bigger reason for animosity toward us than how some decide to cover this?” He also bashed a Reuters story on Kim Yo Jong, writing, “This is a murderous regime that is stifling a population. Progress has to be evidenced by a lot more than this no?” Jonathan Chait, writer for New York magazine, mockingly cheered the CNN piece: “Also stealing her country’s meager wealth to live in opulence while they starve. But doing it in style. You go, girl!” Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin chimed in, tweeting: “Next up: An EXCLUSIVE @CNN investigative report on Kim Jong Un’s sister’s workout playlist, favorite boba tea flavors, and nighttime skin care routine. #SLAYGIRLFRIEND” Fox News’ Brit Hume tweeted: “Does this puff piece mean she’s gotten over her dictator brother’s murder of her other brother?” Speaking for the millennial audience, David Mack of BuzzFeed tweeted: “yasss kweeen! werk it as you oppress your people! gettttt that crime against humanity, gurlllll!” The CNN piece did mention at one point that Kim Yo Jong’s brother, the North Korean Supreme Leader, “has ruled with an iron fist since coming to power,” running prison camps and killing senior officers to preserve his power. The article did not mention the reign of terror brought about by their father, Kim Jong Il.

Yale Researchers Accidentally Expose Facebook’s Bias Against Conservative Media

A Yale-published study claiming to mirror Facebook’s new methodology for sorting “broadly trusted” news sources from partisan news inadvertently undermines its author’s own advocacy of the methodology by listing far-left sites Salon.com and HuffingtonPost as “mainstream” while packing its “hyper-partisan” category with right-of-center news sources. Politico ran with the headline “GOP voters trust CNN, N.Y. Times over Breitbart, InfoWars.” A more accurate headline would have been “Single Working Paper With Questionable Methodology Shows GOP Voters Trust CNN Over Breitbart.” But that probably would have got them fewer clicks. What the study actually shows, by the authors’ own admission, is that mainstream media sources are most likely to achieve a “broadly trusted” rating by surveyed subjects due to their name recognition, not due to the quality of their journalism. In the study, the authors admit that if Facebook were to sort news on the basis of “trustworthiness” surveys, it would favor established, mainstream outlets and punish new media — because newer, unfamiliar sources are less likely to be trusted. Given the apparent role of familiarity in judgments of trustworthiness, highly rigorous news sources that are less-well known (or that are new) are likely to receive low trust ratings – and thus will have difficulty gaining prominence on social media. Relatedly, it is unclear how the crowdsourcing approach will scale when trying to cover the massive number of outlets which produce news content online, many (perhaps most) of which will be unfamiliar to most raters. Nevertheless, the authors of the study — one of whom recently retweeted a post calling the Nunes memo a “stunt” born from “right-wing fever swamps” that “recklessly breathe life into conspiracy theories.” — claim this is totally fine. In fact, they think Facebook doesn’t go far enough. The problem, according to Rand, is that Zuckerberg has said that Facebook will only count users’ trust ratings for sites that they say they’ve heard of. In other words, if a user’s answer to the first question—do you recognize this website?—is no, their answer to the second question is thrown out. Rand said that broad unfamiliarity with a site can be a good signal that it’s unreliable. After all, “fake news” is often peddled on URL’s that few would have ever heard of. Such an approach would, by the authors’ own admission, favor established, recognizable news outlets and punish newer sites. That includes openly right-wing news sites like Breitbart News, but also anti-establishment voices of the left that are despised by the mainstream, like Glenn Greenwald’s The Intercept. The authors also demonstrate their super-sound judgment and academic objectivity in their list of “mainstream” and “hyper-partisan” news sources.

That, of course, is sarcasm.  FaceBook is clearly liberal media.  They should at least be honest and open about their bias.  Anyway, to see a list, and read the rest of this excellent analysis, click on the text above.

MSNBC star Joy Reid downplays MS-13, says only Fox News viewers have heard of dangerous gang

Often-misinformed MSNBC star Joy Reid is under the impression that international criminal gang MS-13 isn’t a major issue and the only people that have even heard of the thugs are regular viewers of Fox News. During Tuesday’s State of the Union address, President Trump kicked off the immigration portion of his speech by detailing the horror of two teenage girls who were killed by MS-13, an international crime gang comprised mainly of El Salvador immigrants, while their parents were in the building. “Two precious girls were brutally murdered while walking together in their hometown,” Trump said. “Four men associated with MS-13 have been charged with the killings… I am calling on the Congress to finally close the deadly loopholes that have allowed MS-13, and other criminals, to break into our country.” During MSNBC’s coverage of the State of the Union, Reid mocked the president’s remarks while analyzing the speech with “Hardball” host Chris Matthews. “He gives a speech tonight, in which he makes it sound like the biggest issue in the United States, the biggest threat is MS-13, a gang nobody that doesn’t watch Fox News has ever heard of. So he makes it sound like they’re the biggest threat.” Reid said Trump simply mentioned the deadly gang to accommodate the “audience he wants applause from.” Well, it turns out Reid needs to consume more news. A search of “MS-13” on CNN’s website reveals dozens of articles that mention the gang. The gang has been mentioned in an assortment of New York Times headlines in recent memory, such as a June 2017 article titled, “39 members of MS-13 are arrested, authorities say,” and a July 2017 article headlined, “Trump will visit Long Island in the wake of MS-13 gang arrests.” If the Times is too high-brow for the MSNBC star, USA Today has also covered the gang extensively. A video on the site from Nov. 2017 is headlined, “MS-13 gang member arrested in Maryland murder.” USA Today even covered the gang back in 2012 when the Obama-era feds decided to label MS-13 a criminal group. “This designation allows us to strike at the financial heart of MS-13 and is a powerful weapon in our fight to dismantle one of the most violent, transnational criminal organizations operating today,” then-ICE Director John Morton told the paper. “MS-13 is an example of some of the worst of criminal gang behavior,” Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., told Matthews on the very same show on which Reid appeared. News organizations, including the Washington Post, HuffPost, The New Yorker, The Hill, New York Post, PBS, New York Daily News, Los Angeles Times, Daily Mail, Time and Slate have all covered the dangerous gang. If Reid doesn’t consume any of the aforementioned outlets, surely she remembers the coverage that her own network dedicated to Trump July 2017 speech to law enforcement officials on Long Island, N.Y. when he famously warned police officers not to be “too nice” when arresting “thugs.” Well, somebody should tell Ms. Reid that the president was referring to MS-13 members when he made the controversial remarks.

Joy Reid is stunningly stupid..  It boggles the mind how a major news outlet, regardless of it’s extreme political bias, would allow someone like her to have her own show.  MS-13 has been a topic of conversation across the political and media spectrum for over a decade.  But, I guess because Trump brought it up, it must not be important or newsworthy, according to Joy.  Again, Joy makes a total fool of herself…

CNN claim that an unmonitored asteroid could slam into earth during government shutdown is debunked

Sadly, this is CNN. CNN personalities already blame virtually everything on President Trump and now the network has floated a theory that the earth could be jeopardized by an asteroid because of the government shutdown — but don’t worry, experts have already dubunked the fake news. CNN correspondent Tom Foreman said on “The Lead with Jake Tapper” that NASA could potentially stop monitoring asteroids during the shutdown. “A big one, by the way, is expected to brush by Earth on February 4,” Foreman said on Friday’s show. He explained that this occurred back in 2013 during the Obama administration when the government last shut down. “For more than two weeks, NASA reportedly stopped monitoring potentially dangerous asteroids,” he said. Foreman might not be the best when it comes to measuring things, as he said the anticipated asteroid will “brush by earth,” but it will actually be roughly 2.6 million miles away, according to Space.com. “NASA representatives say there’s no chance that it will collide with Earth,” Space.com reported. Center for Near-Earth-Object Studies at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory Paul Chodas told the site, which bills itself as “the premier source of space exploration, innovation and astronomy news,” that the asteroid CNN hyped “has no chance — zero — of colliding with Earth on Feb. 4 or any time over the next 100 years.”

CNN has really become a laughing stock.  It’s almost as bad as MSNBC; utter garbage and fake news.

NBC’s Lester Holt ripped for saying he’s been ‘treated with respect’ in North Korea

NBC News anchor Lester Holt is facing backlash on social media after he said he and his crew were “treated with respect” by North Korean officials during their trip to the Masikryong Ski Resort in the totalitarian country. Mr. Holt was reporting Monday from the ski slopes where athletes from North Korea and South Korea will train for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. NBC News cameras showed dozens of colorful and seemingly cheerful North Koreans enjoying the “bunny slope” as Mr. Holt described his crew’s experience traveling to the Hermit Kingdom from Beijing. “This is the bunny slope at a very modern ski resort here in North Korea,” Mr. Holt said. “We’re here because some of the athletes from the South and North, based on this new alliance, will be doing some of their training here. It’s been announced the North Koreans will field 22 athletes in the upcoming Winter Games in South Korea. That’s fueling some sense of hope and optimism of cooperation in other ways between the two countries.” “We arrived in North Korea on Saturday, we flew the North Korean state airline,” Mr. Holt continued. “It’s about an hour and a half flight from Beijing, they even make an announcement in flight when you eventually cross the border into North Korea. We quickly passed through immigrations, went through a very lengthy and very detailed customs inspection of not only our equipment but our personal items down to the novels we were reading, even in one case, a toothbrush of our crew members. “But we have been treated with respect here,” he added. “We had been invited and are guests of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We stayed in a guest house outside Pyongyang last night and then made our way to this ski resort to get a look at a part of North Korea that most Americans don’t see and certainly a part they would like us to see.” The Masikryong Ski Resort, built by North Korean soldiers and civilians in just 10 months, is a pet project by dictator Kim Jong-un to create the illusion of wealth and prestige in the impoverished nation. NBC News reported last January that men, women and children — some as young as 11 and 12 — are tasked with shoveling snow at the luxury resort where trucks and snowplows are virtually nonexistent. Mr. Holt was accused of peddling regime propaganda.

..which is exactly what he did.  What a moron!  I’m sure Kim Jong Ding Dong is laughing his way to the local communist propaganda print shop.  Thanks a lot, Lester..

President Trump reveals winners of his ‘Fake News’ awards

President Trump revealed the winners of his self-proclaimed ‘Fake News’ awards Wednesday night on Twitter — with The New York Times topping the list. CNN also came out as a “winner,” with the left-leaning news network making the list four times. The list, published on GOP.com, noted that “studies have shown that over 90 percent of the media’s coverage of President Trump is negative.” It went on to call 2017 “a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage and even downright fake news.” Coming in first place was The New York Times’ Paul Krugman for his prediction that the stock markets would never recover from Trump’s election. In a bit of irony, the Dow Jones industrial average closed above 26,000 for the first time on Wednesday. The Times was followed by ABC News’ Brian Ross for his botched report that Trump advised former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to make contact with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign. The list pointed to a false CNN report that Trump had early access to “hacked documents” from WikiLeaks, a video that suggested Trump overfed fish in a visit with the Japanese prime minister and a report that former FBI Director James Comey would deny saying Trump was told he was not under investigation. The Times appeared on the list again for a false report that the Trump administration hid a report on climate change. Newsweek sent out a tweet Wednesday evening acknowledging its “award.” The final “winner” on the list, as Trump described it: “And last, but not least: ‘RUSSIA COLLUSION!’ Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!” The website carrying the results of the “Fake News Awards” crashed because it was flooded with visitors after Trump tweeted out the link. Without naming anyone, Trump also tweeted out his praise for the “many great reporters.” He continued, “Despite some very corrupt and dishonest media coverage, there are many great reporters I respect and lots of GOOD NEWS for the American people to be proud of!” Click here to see the full list of winners of the 2017 Fake News Awards.

This is so great!!!  President Trump calls out these glaring, factual errors by the dominantly liberal mainstream media.  There is NO question that they are clearly guilty of not only anti-Trump bias.  That’s a given.  But, they create fake news.  If you’ve not seen that list yet, click on the text above.  Excellent!!   🙂
