Media hotshots prove yet again that they can’t be trusted

The media never learn. They were called to an off the record meeting with Donald Trump. They also agreed not to disclose the content of the meeting.

Then what did they do?

That’s right, they blabbed about it like the precious little snowflakes they are:

Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post.

?It was like a f?ing firing squad,? one source said of the encounter.

?Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ?I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,? ? the source said.

?The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,? the source added.

A second source confirmed the fireworks. ? Read more »

How Bill Murray Went Missing

During Letterman’s First Episode

Here?s where it all began: Murray?s interview as the first guest ever on NBC’s?Late Night with David Letterman. In his typical sardonic fashion, he makes fun of Dave, explains that he regrets not strangling Richard Nixon when he had the opportunity, has a humorous mental breakdown, shows off a short film he made in his backyard about a panda bear named ?Cancun? that was forced to work in a Chinese restaurant, and ends the whole thing by doing aerobics while singing Olivia Newton John?s ?Physical.?

Making stuff up always catches you out eventually

Brian Williams is already suspended without pay for 6 months after being busted telling lies about his past.

But now his entire life and public comments are being unpacked…and it is being discovered that he is a real life Walter Mitty, who has spent his entire career fabricating his attendance at more events than even Kris Faafoi.

Now he is busted?making up watching the Berlin Wall come down.

Yet another dubious firsthand claim by Brian Williams has come to light, this one involving one of the most significant moments in the 20th century: the demolition of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

During a forum discussion at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in 2008, Williams was asked by an audience?member to tell about his biggest ?wow? journalistic moment.

?What was my wow ? I?ve been so fortunate,? he said. ?I was at the Brandenburg Gate the night the wall came down.?

The only problem, as CBS Los Angeles notes, is that Williams was assuredly not there the ?night the wall came down.? The only American anchorman there to report the historic moment live was Tom Brokaw. Williams arrived the next day.

Beneath contempt

Andrew Klavan

Andrew Klavan

Andrew Klavan writes about the state of the media and proclaims them to be beneath contempt.

[W]hat we have in our news media is a cabal of over-educated but under-smart elites under the hilarious impression that one power-hungry party is out for the good of mankind and the other staunchly opposed. It?s such a stupid thing to think ? such a blitheringly naive proposition ? that reacting to them with outrage seems almost unkind, like slapping a child for believing in Santa Claus.

That, dear readers is called the narrative…and it is as much true in New Zealand as it is in the US.

And yet one feels one has to say something. Take a look at the mighty John Nolte?s?timeline of journalistic lies?about the Zimmerman-Martin affair. From CNN falsely attributing a racial slur to Zimmerman, to?NBC?s actionable editing of audio?to make Zimmerman seem racist, to the?New York Times??invention of a unique racial category (white Hispanic) useful for nothing but the ginning up of public hostility,?there is a childlike insistence that the world be as Democrats claim it is, rather than as it really is, a willing suspension of disbelief in a political distortion. It really is so infantile that it would be kind of sweet and silly if it weren?t so dangerous. I mean, it?s all fun and games until somebody puts out an eye ? or burns down a city.? Read more »

Media collusion in Zimmerman witch-hunt

zimmer1

Now that George Zimmerman has been found not guilty we can look at the role of the media, of Barack Obama and some celebrities in the witch-hunt to ‘get’ George Zimmerman.

Some of the media manipulation is astonishing.

It all started with the anchor of a major television network (Al Sharpton) inserting himself in the story to spread division and hate; it continued straight through to the closing days of the trial when another major news network, desperate to keep a fabricated racial narrative alive, propagated the portrayal of Zimmerman as part of a racial group that doesn’t exist — the “white Hispanic.”

In-between, there has been an astonishing amount of malicious fraud and lies, all in an effort to serve a president, stir racial hatred, and influence the justice system.? Read more »
