James O’Keefe Confronts WaPo Writer Over False Reporting

James O’Keefe confronted Washington Post writer, Paul Farhi on Wednesday about his fake news article claiming Project Veritas didn’t disclose that the producer in the first video, John Bonifield was in Atlanta.

The Rebel Media reported an email exchange between O’Keefe and Farhi where O’Keefe says, “Paul, I’m going to give you one more chance, here are the two quotes:

WHAT I SAID:

“I’d like to introduce you to CNN supervising producer, John Bonefield in Atlanta”

YOUR QUOTE:

“It also doesn’t disclose that he is in Atlanta – not in Washington or New York where most of CNN’s coverage of national affairs and politics are produced.”

The WaPo writer is reporting false information, yet refuses to make a correction.

Farhi also said that his editors have no correction/retraction on his story.

Farhi also told one source to “apologize or drop dead” when confronted about his fake news reporting.

Not Just CNN: Five Fake Trump-Russia Stories 

CNN recently caught flak for publishing a story on Trump-Russia collusion that was later retracted.

The retraction led to the resignation of three CNN journalists, and in the eyes of many on the right, the incident was just more proof that the media is desperate to go after President Trump on Russia allegations — with or without facts.

This comes as recently released video from Project Veritas shows a CNN producer on hidden camera saying that he thinks the Russia story is “mostly bullshit right now,” and that CNN CEO Jeff Zucker is encouraging his staff to forgo other topics to focus on Russia allegations.

How CNN’s Fake News Machine Ran

Conspiracy theories, anonymous sources and big lies.

In April, media types were crowing that CNN had brought in Eric Lichtblau who had been, in the Washington Post’s words, at “the forefront of the New York Times’s reporting on the relationship between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.” It was “an investment in investigative reporting and the sprawling Russia story”. It didn’t take long for the investigative investment to sprawl badly.

Lichtblau has resigned from CNN in a growing scandal over a Fake News story about a Trump associate.

“Eric will guide our coverage and thinking,” Lex Haris, executive editor of CNN Investigates, had boasted. “And when he’s onto a investigation, he’ll still be reporting and writing too.”

Not for long. And Haris has joined Lichtblau on the unemployment line after the Fake News scandal.

Amazon Is Trying To Sell You Everything (Don’t Let It)

When I ask people why they don’t mind putting their personal information and private lives online on sites like Facebook, Google’s many linked apps, or through Amazon’s personalized algorithms and in-house listening device Echo (linked to “voice service” Alexa), many say something like, “I have nothing to hide – I’m not a serial killer.”

This is missing the point. No one is suggesting that you are trying to cover up a murder or steal state secrets. I am suggesting that it might be unwise to allow these largely unregulated, personal-information-inhaling, behemoth tech corporations to know basically everything about you and to acquire and maintain positions of unprecedentedly concentrated power. We do not understand how powerful and intrusive they are because they are so far ahead of regulators (I don’t think Jeff Bezos takes as many vacation days as your average congressperson or government regulator) and privacy-related watchdog groups, which don’t have a fraction of the resources these companies have. We don’t know what we don’t know and we don’t know what they do know.

Washpo Anon Source At CIA: Putin Gave Direct Orders To Help Elect Donald Trump

I do not mean to be flippant when dismissing the never-ending barrage of anonymous sources inside the CIA who leak to the Washington Post. I’m sure there are good agents who are protecting Americans from foreign meddlers. But the optics of these leaks is terrible. Truth is, I sometimes think they’re doing this to make the main stream media look even worse — to lend an air of bias to the reporting rooms to dissuade Americans from trusting them. After all, Washpo, MSNBC, CNN and the NY Times are in the business of appealing to all people, not just the one’s who agree with them. Do they realize the irreversible damage they’re inflicting upon their organizations by publishing suspicious anonymous leaks designed to take down a democratically elected President?

If Russia truly wanted to hurt America, they could not do more than what the main stream media is doing now, peddling stories that are infuriating half the country.

WaPo Actually Acknowledges That Single-Payer Isn’t Feasible

The Washington Post made a stunning admission in their Sunday editorial that deviates from their left-wing bent: a single-payer health care system isn’t feasible in the United States.

The Post argued that while there are benefits in having such a system, it would come at an “astonishing” price.

“When Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) proposed a ‘Medicare for all’ health plan in his presidential campaign, the nonpartisan Urban Institute figured that it would raise government spending by $32 trillion over 10 years, requiring a tax increase so huge that even the democratic socialist Mr. Sanders did not propose anything close to it,” the Post wrote.

Buy Your Food From The CIA: Amazon Buys Whole Foods

When Amazon boss and billionaire Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post in 2013, he also had an ongoing $600 million contract to provide cloud computing services to the CIA. That meant the Washington Post, which already had a long history of cooperation with the CIA, renewed their wedding vows with the Agency and doubled down on the alliance.

By any reasonable standard of journalism, the Post should preface every article about the CIA, or article sourced from the CIA, with a conflict of interest admission: TAKE THIS PIECE WITH A FEW GIANT GRAINS OF SALT, BECAUSE OUR NEWSPAPER IS OWNED BY A MAN WHO HAS A HUGE CONTRACT TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO THE CIA.

Now Bezos and his company, Amazon, have bought Whole Foods for $13.7 billion. Whole Foods is the premier retailer of “natural” foods in America.

The degree of profiling of Whole Foods customers will increase by a major factor. Amazon/CIA will be able to deploy far more sophisticated algorithms in that regard.
