More CNN Bias Exposed: Unbalanced Coverage Of Transgender Issues

In this continuation of our #AmericanPravda series, CNN supervising producer John Bonifield describes the “automatic bias” against conservative voices.

“Where we fail are covering the stories of the people who think differently, people who don’t want to have transgender surgery paid for in their state, who don’t want transgender bathroom…,” states Bonifield in the undercover video by Project Veritas.

Fusion GPS And How The News Gets Made

Lee Smith has an extensive hardhitting piece at the Tablet on Fusion GPS and what the media has become. I’m going to excerpt a few relevant sections. Not necessarily in order.

On Wednesday, three major news organization published variations of the same story—about the line of succession to the Saudi throne. It seems that in June the son of King Salman, Mohammed Bin Salman, muscled his cousin Mohammed Bin Nayef out of the way to become the Crown Prince and next in line.

It’s a juicy narrative with lots of insider-y details about Saudi power politics, drug addiction, and the ambitions of a large and very wealthy family, but the most salient fact is that the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Reuters published what was essentially the same story, with minor variations, on the same day—not a breaking news story, but an investigative feature.

In other words, these media organizations were used as part of an information campaign targeting Riyadh, for as yet unknown reasons. Who’s behind it? Maybe an opposition research shop like Fusion GPS, or a less formal gathering of interests, like Saudi opponents foreign and domestic, as well as American intelligence officials.

White House Calls Idea Of ‘Second Meeting’ Between Trump And Putin ‘False, Malicious And Absurd’

Several mainstream news media outlets reported Tuesday evening that President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin held a second, undisclosed “meeting” at the G-20 summit earlier this month in Hamburg, Germany, attended only by Putin’s translator.

The “meeting” — occurring during a dinner for heads of states and their spouses, supposedly “raised the eyebrows” of other foreign leaders at the dinner, for breaking national security protocol by not also having a U.S. translator present, according to Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer, who first reported the meeting in a note sent to clients, according to Reuters.

How Approval Polls And ‘Junk’ Journalism Are Fake Views Pushed By Fake News

Polls are deployed only when they might prove useful — that is, helpful to the powers that be in their question to maintain their position and influence.— Christopher Hitchens, Harper’s Magazine, 1992

The latest rod by which to beat the President of the United States is a Washington Post/ABC News poll showing Mr. Trump’s approval ratings languishing at 36 per cent.

Americans across the board appear, on first take, to be well out of love with the new President. But the “small print” on the polls reveals something quite disturbing about the methodology of the group responsible.

The poll was performed by AbtAssociates — a swamp dweller-staffed research and policy shop in Cambridge, MA.

AbtAssociates board members include former Bob Dole, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Planned Parenthood, World Bank, and Deloitte staffers. In other words, it is a microcosm of the party of Davos.

But that in itself doesn’t rule AbtAssociates out from doing decent work. What might, however, is the underlying philosophy behind political polling, and the methodology they use to conduct it.

Trump Was Hammering CNN In 1990 For Fake News: “When People Say Something False I Attack Those People”

Before hashtags, Russian hackers or fake news were ever a thing, businessman Donald Trump had already had enough of the inaccurate reporting from mainstream media entities like CNN.

In 1990, the future President joined the network for an interview in which he hammered the interviewer about the news channel’s inaccurate and biased reporting.

Even then, just as 24-hour cable news networks were in their infancy, it was a shock to reporters, whose credibility had never really been question, especially in front of their own audiences.

As you’ll see below, Trump not only accuses CNN of getting away with murder in their reporting, but abruptly walks out on the interview after concluding it was yet another witch hunt.

Incompas, an internet trade group association, released a poll on Thursday at the National Press Club that allegedly shows tremendous Republican support for net neutrality.

Sharyl Attkisson Exposes Big Media In The Smear

Journalists today are elitists with their own agenda, never actually practicing journalism.  Only a handful can be respected, trusted, and believed.  Sharyl Attkisson falls into this category.  She is an author and investigative reporter who hosts the syndicated TV news series Full Measure.  Attkisson is a whistleblower of sorts in educating the public about the biased media.  Her latest book, The Smear, reveals the tactics used to influence opinions in order to obscure the truth.

In the beginning of this book, Attkisson discusses the propaganda campaign used by the OSS, the predecessor to the CIA.  They had asked the legendary Marlene Dietrich to sing “Lili Marlene” in German and English in order to make the Axis forces feel homesick and realize they were fighting for the wrong side.  She contrasts this with Hitler’s chief propagandist Joseph Goebbels’s playbook, which calls for creating a big lie – the bigger, the better to get more people to believe it.  Repeat it often enough so it becomes the truth, and persistence is the most important requirement for success.
