As Breitbart News has explained repeatedly, and as CNN’s own coverage at the time showed, Trump used the phrase “very fine people” to describe non-violent protesters on either side of the debate over a Confederate statue — and specifically excluded the neo-Nazis, whom he “condemned totally.”
Yet for the past several weeks, CNN has reported that Trump was referring to neo-Nazis as “very fine people” in Charlottesville. CNN is now using the Charlottesville lie to implicate Trump in the terror attacks against two mosques in New Zealand on Friday.
On Friday evening, host Don Lemon played a deceptively edited video clip of President Trump’s press conference from Trump Tower on August 15, 2017.
Lemon introduced the clip by saying, “Nobody has forgotten — nobody has forgotten — what he said after that deadly white supremacist riot in Charlottesville.”
He then cut to a clip of Trump saying, “You also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group — excuse me, excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did.”
Lemon left out that Trump had made clear he was not talking about the neo-Nazis: “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.” He also failed to explain that, as CNN itself reported at the time of the press conference, Trump was referring to people “that were there to protest the taking down, to them, of a very, very important statue and a renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.” Read more HERE.

One month after claiming there is “no emergency” at the border, the far-left New York Times now concedes the border is at a “breaking point.”
In real time, as President Trump gave his State of the Union speech last month, the Times branded the president a liar over his claim that there is an “urgent national crisis” at our border.
“This is false,” the Times told its readers, using a non sequitur about individuals attempting to cross the border, while admitting — at the bottom of the fact check — that a “record number of families have tried to cross the border in recent months.”
At the time, this phony fact check was widely ridiculed for its absurd attempt to hide the fact that a “record number of families” stressing the resources of our southern border does not somehow constitute a legitimate crisis, and now, almost exactly a month later, this very same Times is reporting our border is at a “breaking point.”
“The number of migrant families crossing the southwest border has once again broken records, with unauthorized entries nearly doubling what they were a year ago, suggesting that the Trump administration’s aggressive policies have not discouraged new migration to the United States,” the Times reports.

Fake news at its worst, a compilation. Are they auditioning for the Academy Awards?
The same networks that spent 2,202 minutes of collective airtime to push the Russia Collusion Media-Hoax are refusing to cover the Senate Intelligence Committee bipartisan report, which found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
The Media Research Center (MRC) did the research and found that between January 21, 2017, and February 10, 2019, “ABC’s World News Tonight, the CBS Evening News, and the NBC Nightly News [spent] 2,202 minutes on the Russia investigation [, which] accounted for nearly 19 percent of all Trump-related reporting [, and now] none of those three shows have even mentioned the investigation since NBC’s report came out on February 12.”
The same is true elsewhere on the left-wing networks.
“Neither CBS This Morning nor NBC’s Today have even acknowledged this new information from Senate investigators since the news broke on February 12,” MRC reports. “ABC’s Good Morning America briefly touched on it in a news brief totaling less than one minute on February 13.”
What’s especially fascinating is that NBC’s Ken Dilanian broke the original news of the Senate report, and NBC is still refusing to cover the story.
The reasons for this are quite obvious: the media know a reckoning is on the horizon, and they are buying time in the hopes of finding a way to wriggle out of it. Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

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.

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.
Onward to 2018…

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.”
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.

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.
