Nolte: WaPo Spends $5.2M on Vanity Ad in Wake of 1,200 Media Layoffs


by John Nolte

After some 1,200 people lost their media jobs last week, the far-left Washington Post spent $5.2 million to run a vanity ad during the Super Bowl.

You have to watch the Post ad to understand just how vacuous it is. What we have here is the highest form of propaganda narrated by a Big Movie Star (Tom Hanks), produced only to give you a chronic case of the FeelSoGoodz.

Hanks pompously informs us:

When we go off to war, when we exercise our rights, when we soar to our greatest heights, when we mourn and pray, when our neighbors are at risk, when our nation is threatened — there’s someone to gather the facts, to bring you the story — no matter the cost because knowing empowers us.

“Knowing helps us decide. Knowing keeps us free,” he added.

Notice how the ad’s only example of terrorism is Oklahoma City and not either attack on the World Trade Center or the Pentagon or any one of the more recent Islamic terror attacks on our homeland because democracy dies in darkness, or something…

Here’s my idea for a Washington Post ad that is actually fact-based, and I would like Robert Davi to narrate:

NARRATOR: Who do we count on to bring us the fake news from so-called reporters who call us “rubes,” to hand its Faith column to a practicing occultist, to publish the lies about the Russians hacking our electric grid, to blame President Trump for hurricanes, to sentence us to a lifetime of public harassment, to advocate for the hatred of all men, to call for violence against us, and smear innocent Catholic boys as Nazis…?

FADE UP TO: Washington Post Logo

NARRATOR: Democracy doesn’t die in darkness — it dies in a brightly lit newsroom populated with hacks owned by a Silicon Valley megalomaniac who sends dick pics to his mistress.

My ad is also meant to give you a case of the feel goodz, but it also contains facts about the sorry state of journalism today. Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

The 2018 Breitbart News Fake News Awards

by John Nolte:

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?

Well, as you will see below, today’s media are full-blown gangsters — liars, extortionists, and champions of violence.

Here’s 2017’s list of winners.

Fox News Judge Napolitano Continues to Trash Trump with Inaccurate ‘Analysis’

by John Nolte

Appearing with Shepard Smith on Wednesday, Fox News’s Judge Andrew Napolitano continued his winning streak of being the worst and most dishonest legal analyst on television not named Jeffrey Toobin.

Spewing all kinds of mindless gloom and doom (you can watch the full segment here), while ignoring the all-important mitigating context that proves just how stupid his gloom and doom is, Napolitano painted a dire picture of President Trump as a felon.

After Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison, Smith teed up Napolitano with this: “Prosecutors have told us through these filings that they have evidence that the President committed a felony.”

Naturally, Napolitano heartily agreed:

The felony is paying Michael Cohen to commit a felony. It’s pretty basic. Somebody hires you — A hires B to shoot someone. A is as liable as if he had pulled the trigger. You pay someone to commit a crime, they commit the crime, you are liable, criminally liable for their commission of that crime, as well as they being liable. That’s what the prosecutors told the federal judge.

Keep in mind that this is coming from the same Judge FakeNews who called proven liar Christine Blasey Ford “exceptionally credible” after hearing only a few minutes of her testimony.

But here is the important information the Judge FakeNews is deliberately hiding from Fox viewers… Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

“If you are holding off canceling your cable to hold onto Fox News, it is time to rethink that.  If Fox News is going to mislead and spread anti-Trump propaganda that is no different from the fake news coming from CNN … It’s time to cut the cord, y’all, it is time to starve fake news.”

Nolte: The Unelected Keep Telling Our Elected President to Shut Up

Unless you count the vice president, there is only one person elected by the whole of America. There is only one person chosen by We the People to represent 330 million of us. There is only one person who earned the votes through our constitutional process to speak for all — and that is the president of the United States. And yet, it is the president of the United States who is constantly being told by the unelected to shut up.

Chief Justice John Roberts was appointed to the Supreme Court — appointed. In fact, the entire judiciary is either clogged by those who have not earned a single vote or by those who won no more than the votes of one of the 50 states. And yet, when the man chosen by Americans to represent all of America criticizes the judiciary, the top judge in the country tells him to shut up.

After Trump accurately pointed out that there are indeed “Obama judges,” meaning judges on the Ninth Circuit who serve as left-wing activists as opposed to interpreters of laws written by the people’s elected representatives, Roberts vomited out this chunk of fake news:

We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges. What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.  That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.

What a crock. But because Roberts cannot intellectually defend the Ninth Circuit, what he does instead is attack the very idea of criticizing the judiciary. He puts the judiciary out of bounds for criticism because it is “independent,” and because it is “independent,” we all need to shut up and be “thankful for” it.

Roberts, though, is only the latest among the unelected to join this Fascist Gang of Unelected Shut Uppers.

The establishment media have not earned a single vote. No one has gone out and cast even one vote that would allow CNN, NBC, the New York Times, etc. to speak for any of us, much less all of us. And yet, when the man who actually was chosen by Americans to represent all of America criticizes the media, the unelected media tell him to shut up by attempting to bully him into silence with invented nonsense about how his criticism is “dangerous” and a violation of the Constitution.

Did Fox News Cost the GOP Orange County?

Mike Theiler/UPI

by John Nolte:

Nearly 90 minutes before polls closed in California, Fox News chose to make the irresponsible announcement that Republicans had already lost the U.S. House of Representatives. Did that early call cost the Republicans Orange County, California?

Orange County has been a Republican stronghold (and a famous one) for decades, and while there is no question the county had been trending Democrat, on Election Night, Republicans lost all seven congressional seats. But if you look at the vote counts, there were a number of squeakers.

In the 28th District, Democrat Linda Sanchez beat Republican Ryan Downing by less than 300 votes.

Out of over 140,000 votes cast in the 39th District, the Democrat won by only a little over 4,000 votes with 51.4 percent. This race was so close, it was not called until November 17.

In the 45th District, the margin was 51.6 to 48.4 percent with a margin of under 9000 votes out of some 280,000.

With margins such as these, it is not unreasonable to ask if Fox News suppressed the Republican vote with its indefensible Election Night call.

While Democrat voters prefer early voting, it is well known that Republican voters tend to vote on Election Day — which means those after-work hours are crucially important when it comes to turnout.

But for a crucial 87 minutes, between 6:33 p.m. local time, when Fox announced the election for the U.S. House of representatives was over, and 8:00 p.m., when the polls closed, Orange County was told that voting in an important national race that might have been a motivating factor to get in or remain in line, was futile.

Media outlets are supposed to wait until all the polls have closed before calling a race, supposed to wait until all the votes have been cast. For a host of reasons no one should have to explain, this is not only considered good manners, it is an easy way for the media to avoid meddling in elections by discouraging voter participation.

What’s more, sometimes the media get these early calls wrong. During the 2000 presidential election, a number of news outlets not only called Florida an hour before the conservative-leaning Panhandle’s polls closed, they called it wrong for Al Gore.

While we will never know if Fox’s early call on November 6 cost the GOP Orange County, we do know it was anti-democratic, wildly irresponsible, and another in a ever-growing list of lapses of judgment the cable news network has made of late.

In just last few months, Fox News has…

  • Backed CNN’s lawsuit against President Trump to reinstate a press pass for heckler Jim Acosta.
  • Buckled to emotional blackmail from CNN and others and stopped airing Trump’s perfectly acceptable ad about the dangers of illegal immigration.
  • Offered a platform to Jorge Ramos, a left-wing propagandist and open borders extremist.
  • Mocked an actor for working a real job.
  • Spread the fake news that Senate Judiciary Committee testimony from Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford was “exceptionally credible” — when the truth is that Ford’s testimony and documentation were riddled with contradictions and falsehoods.
  • Attacked Breitbart News after we uncovered smoking gun audio about Google’s election meddling.

Establishment Media Exploit Bomb Scare to Intimidate Trump into Silence

But leftist violence against President Trump and other Republicans is virtually ignored. Or as the saying goes: “Whthout double standards, the media would have no standards at all.”

by John Nolte:

As far as which is more pathetic, pick one: The fact that the establishment media are exploiting an appalling crime to intimidate their critics into silence or the fact that it was so predictable they would do so. Either way, it is the most ignorant, cynical, and un-American way to respond to an attempted terror attack I have ever seen.

Over the past week, some monster mailed some ten pipe bombs to high-profile Democrats, like former Presidents Clinton and Obama. Also on the list were Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), former Vice President Joe Biden, and by way of CNN, John Brennan, the former director of the CIA.

Thankfully, so far, not a single one of the bombs has gone off. There is some speculation they were not meant to go off; they were deliberate duds. Regardless, it is still an inexcusable act of terrorism.

Every decent person is appalled by political violence. This is where our country and culture should be able to draw a thick red line and stand behind it as one. And in a healthy democracy, a place where the media are not poisoned beyond hope by their own hate, that would happen. But the hate-driven media can never allow such a thing.

President Trump, the White House, and Vice President Pence all responded to these pipe bombs in precisely the correct way — with outrage and a promise to track down the terrorist(s). They asked that the country unite against this barbarism.

Already, though, and without any evidence, the Democrat talking points had gone out, and the media were already blaming Trump. Although we have no idea who mailed these bombs or what the motive is, already it was Drumpf’s fault,

Naturally, Jeff Zucker, the chief of far-left CNN, was one of the first to officially divide the country over this issue, one of the first to officially attempt to use these mail bombs to silence criticism of his fake news network.

“There is a total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media: The President, and especially the White House Press Secretary, should understand their words matter,” Zucker said in a statement Wednesday. “Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that.”

Zucker’s minions soon followed suit, as did the rest of the media.

And so here we are, living in an America where the media — think about that — the media

  1. …blame no less than the President of the United States for a bomb scare he had nothing to do with, regardless of the motive.
  2. …exploit a terror attack in the same way a fascist government does — to silence critics.
  3. …exploit a terror attack for political advantage in the run-up to a national election.
  4. …exploit a terror attack to dump all over nothing less than the First Amendment.

And what gall, especially when you remember that all of this is coming from the same corrupt media that have rigorously ignored, downplayed, excused, justified, and even encouraged the epidemic of violence, vandalism, and harassment Trump supporters have faced during the last few years. About 610 separate incidents by our count, including the mass murder attempt at a baseball field full of Republican lawmakers, including ricin and white powder mailed to Republican senators and the president’s own family.  Read the rest HERE.

 

I’m President and You’re Not

Nolte: CNN’s Freak Show of Violence and Racism Hit 17 New Lows This Week

AP/Kostas Tsironis: Edit: BNN

by John Nolte:

Here is the thing that is so amusing about CNN… Pretty much every day the far-left network engages in numerous acts of self-humiliation. A Don Lemon or Chris Cuomo or Jake Tapper or Brian Stelter says or does something that forever stains their character, that reveals the hideous person beneath … and for what?

If CNN had anything other than tragic ratings, if CNN were in second place or even close to second place, I could understand the shamelessness, the tabloid approach to covering politics. But CNN’s ratings are not only awful, they are miraculously awful. Not only is CNN in far-last place, The Least Trusted Name In News does not even have a breakout star or show. Throughout all of last quarter, and only in competition with two other networks (MSNBC and Fox), not a single CNN show — not even one — placed in the top 20.

Think about how awful CNN is to accomplish such a thing, to only have two other networks to compete with and still not place even one show in the top 20 throughout an entire quarter.

Here’s another scenario that might makes sense of CNN’s relentless campaign of self-degradation… Let’s say CNN’s ratings are just as bad, but with breaking stories and smart reporting, CNN is having an impact on public opinion and the news cycle. If that was the case, I could understand the freak show, because having an impact matters. And if it takes a freak show to have an impact, so be it. Except…

CNN has no impact at all.  All of the Big Stories CNN broke this year turned out to be fake news, and ever since Carl Bernstein’s disgrace, CNN has pretty much stopped reporting. Like a prize fighter who got knocked out, the anti-Trump channel seems scared to get back in the ring. So what does CNN do instead…?

CNN is now a 24/7, left-wing echo chamber of hate, violence, and flamingly awful hot takes; a safe space by way of an anti-Trump safe space by way of panel after panel after panel of unimpressive people who all agree with one another signaling their own virtue and spewing poison at their political enemies.

So here is my theory as to why CNN has decided to become a full-time freak show…

Nothing CNN chief Jeff Zucker has tried over the last five years has succeeded. Nothing. His morning show, which should have been his crown jewel, is one of the lowest rated shows in all of cable news.

Overall, Zucker has failed utterly in lifting CNN’s ratings out of far last place. In fact, CNN sheds viewers by double digits most every month.

Even worse have been CNN’s attempts at journalism. Pretty much everything CNN reports is eventually uncovered as fake news. Because of this, CNN’s reputation is in tatters, beyond repair — the network is a national punch-line, a laughingstock.

So that leaves Carnival Barker Zucker and his Circus Geeks with only one option — to put on the freak show. The only thing CNN has left, the only way CNN can garner attention anymore is through self-abasement, is to capture our attention as we wait to see just how low Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, Jake Tapper, Brian Stelter and the rest are willing to go.

All CNN has left is to bite the heads off of chickens in the hopes it will go viral, because that is, well, something —  that is at least some level of celebrity, some form of attention.

In other words, CNN is in a position where it has nothing to lose. Things could not possibly get worse, so why hide? Why be professional? Why be decent? With nothing left to lose, CNN staffers are free to reveal themselves as the unscrupulous, mean-spirited, clueless, angry babies they really are.

And there is no doubt that President Trump’s ongoing successes combined with last week’s confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and Kanye West opening his eyes to the 50 year failure of the Democrat Party,  has freaked out the CNN freaks in ways we have never before seen.

This week was a week of all new lows at CNN; 17 by my count, and I probably missed  a few.

In no particular order… Read the rest at breitbart.com.
