CNN Democrat Town Hall Question Proved to be a Fraud, Planted Question to Hillary Clinton … “I can see why they gave you this.”
CNN – DEMOCRAT PARTY TOWN HALL FRAUD …
There is a reason why CNN is called the Clinton News Network and the MSM is called the Democrat-Media complex. One has to look no farther than the recent CNN Town Hall in Iowa where you can plainly see and hear for yourself that Hillary Clinton was asked a planted question. One of Hillary Clinton’s final questions was from a young student named Brett Rosengren where he said prior to actually asking the question, “I can see why they gave you this.” THEY! WHO IS THEY?
Obviously, this was a planted question. Sorry LIBS, as much as you want to try and defend the obvious, you were busted!!! So it makes you wonder how many of the other questions were the same and did the candidates know them in advance to prepare their answers. Kind of defeats the purpose of a Town Hall.
Al Jazeera America Shutting Down … Flashback: Hillary Clinton, ‘Viewership Of Al Jazeera Is Going Up In The United States’
IMAGINE THAT, AL JAZEERA AMERICA FAILED IN AMERICA, GOING THE WAY OF THE DO DO …
The Al Jazeera America will be closing up shop by April 30, 2016. The channel launched in early 2o13 and hit the airwaves in August 2013 after the purchase of Al Gore’s Current TV. That was a story unto itself when Al “Mr. Global Warming” Gore sold True TV to Al Jazeera, a media entity which was funded mostly by the government of Qatar, which is of course gets most of its money from oil. No hypocrisy there now, is there? As stated at the Daily Caller, Al Jazeera America is shutting down after less than two-and-a-half years of operation, a victim of tanking oil prices that left its owners unable to finance the virtually-unwatched cable channel.Al Jazeera, which made a massive investment in covering the United States less than three years ago, is slamming the brakes on its American operation.
Al Jazeera America, a cable news channel that debuted in August 2013, is shutting down. Employees were informed of the decision during an all-hands staff meeting on Wednesday afternoon.
During the meeting, Al Jazeera America brass said the channel’s business model was “no longer sustainable.” It will shut down by April 30, an Al Jazeera America executive told staff, saying the decision was made by the channel’s board of directors and was not a reflection of the quality of their work.
Employees also were told that Al Jazeera will pursue a new global online strategy with content delivered from the U.S. later this year.
Remember when Hillary praised Al Jazeera News and Al “global warming” Gore Sold his news network to an oil producing country?
Remember when Hillary Clinton called it real news? As secretary of state in 2011 Hillary Clinton touted Al Jazeera as a “really effective” news network with viewership that was “going up in the United States.” More from the Politico on the death of Al Jazeera America.
The Qatar-based Arab-language broadcaster Al Jazeera created an American channel two-and-a-half years ago in a bid to bring its brand to U.S. audiences that were increasingly being exposed to global media.
Al Jazeera made a mission of doing in-depth, enterprising reportage that would eschew what it saw as the frenetic, soundbite-heavy character of U.S. cable news.
But the channel failed to build up a substantial viewership here, and was available only in about 60 million American homes, compared with roughly 100 million households that have cable TV. Its ratings, which approached 28,000 viewers in primetime in 2015 and 19,000 viewers in total day, according to Nielsen, were paltry compared to the big-three cable news channels.
Al Jazeera bought its way into the U.S. market for a reported $500 million in January 2013 when it acquired Current TV, the struggling news channel co-founded by Al Gore in 2005, and took over its slot on the cable dial.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Asks Hillary Clinton What’s the Difference Between a Democrat and a Socialist … She Cannot Answer the Question
WHO KNEW THAT CHRIS MATTHEWS COULD ASK SUCH DIFFICULT QUESTIONS?
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews managed to stump Hillary Clinton during a ‘Hard Ball’ interview on the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist. Hillary’s response, was only, “I’m Not One”. The Democrat presidential candidate managed to dodge the questions, as usual. However, maybe the answer is with today’s Democrat party, there is no difference between the two. This really wasn’t supposed to be a difficult question posed to Hillary Clinton. However, doesn’t it speak volumes that she cannot and will not answer the question. This should be a red flag to those that call themselves Independents and if there are any Reagan Democrats that still exist.
Matthews said he wanted to “help” Clinton, for his audience, locate herself politically, making the puzzling statement that “nobody” uses the term “socialist” in a derogatory way. Clinton’s challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) identifies as a Democratic socialist.
“What’s the difference between a socialist and a Democrat?” Matthews asked. “Is that a question you want to answer or would you rather not, politically?”
“Well, you’d have to ask–” Clinton started.
“See, I’m asking you,” Matthew said. “You’re a Democrat, he’s a socialist. Would you like somebody to call you a socialist? I wouldn’t want someone calling me a socialist.”
“I’m not one,” she said.
Matthews asked her twice again what the difference was but Clinton spoke over him.
“I’m a progressive Democrat who likes to get things done and who believes that we are better off in this country when we’re trying to solve problems together. Getting people to work together. There will always be strong feelings and I respect that, from, you know, the far right, the far left, libertarians, whoever it might be, but we need to get people working together. We’ve got to get the economy fixed, we’ve got to get all of our problems, you know, really tackled and that’s what I want to do,” Clinton said.
Remember when DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was asked by Chris Matthews what’s the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist? She too failed miserably to answer the question. Mathews said, I used to think there was a big difference. Hmm, used to? Does that mean that even Matthews thinks there is little to no difference?
IMAGINE THAT, THE DEMOCRAT, LIBERAL MEDIA COMPLEX IS LYING TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC …
Check out the story from the NY Post that debunks the media reports that there is currently a police killing epidemic. In the end, the moral of this story is: Don’t point a gun at the cops and don’t run when they tell you stop, and you’re likely to survive.
To hear the media tell it, America is in the grip of an unprecedented crime wave, an orgy of wanton murder in which heavily armed thugs randomly gun down innocent unarmed people, some of them teens, just for sport.
Except that these homicidal goons are wearing the blues and badges of American police departments.
It’s the narrative that’s given rise to the protest movement Black Lives Matter and to a growing public mistrust of the police in general. From Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., to the recent shooting of a middle-aged woman and a teen in Chicago, the body count seemingly keeps rising, exacerbating racial tensions and keeping the nation on edge. And each incident is breathlessly reported by a media determined to show that America remains deeply, irredeemably racist.
Problem is, it’s simply not true.
Last week, The Washington Post published a study of the police shootings that took place in 2015. Likely they intended the story to be shocking — as on Dec. 24, 965 people were killed by police! Instead, the report quells the notion that trigger-happy cops are out hunting for civilian victims, especially African-Americans. Among its key findings:
- White cops shooting unarmed black men accounted for less than 4% of fatal police shootings.
- In three-quarters of the incidents, cops were either under attack themselves or defending civilians. In other words, doing their jobs.
- The majority of those killed were brandishing weapons, suicidal or mentally troubled or bolted when ordered to surrender.
- Nearly a third of police shootings resulted from car chases that began with a minor traffic stop.
Socialist Bernie Sanders Calls Out the Liberal MSM for Giving Donald Trump Too Much Attention … Boo Hoo, Liberal MSM Not Giving Liberals Enough Air Time
SOCIALIST BERNIE SANDERS ISN’T A BRAIN SURGEON, BUT HE DID STAY IN A HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS LAST NIGHT …
Oh the irony, Socialist and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders appeared on CNN with Chris Cuomo and whined over the media coverage that was being given to Donald Trump. Sanders stated that the MSM was giving Trump too much media attention and was only doing so because Donald Trump makes “bombastic” and “silly” remarks. Hmm, because backing a socialist agenda and making silly “socialist” comments don’t seem to catch the attention of a capitalist media, go figure?
Sanders called out Cuomo and stated that all the attention to Trump was “more of an indictment of the media, than of Trump”. Cuomo pushed back on Sanders, arguing that Trump’s coverage is reflective of his popularity in the polls. However, Sanders has a point, but this is not anything different than they have ever done. But normally, the MSM is just paying attention to ridiculous liberal crap that is of no consequence as Rome burns.
Isn’t it comical though to see a liberal, and in this case a socialist, complaining about how much media coverage the liberal and bias MSM is giving to a Republican candidate? I cannot remember ever seeing such a thing. Of course, Sanders is acting as if all the media coverage for Trump is positive. But for liberals/socialists to complain the liberal MSM is not giving them enough air time is priceless.
Bernie Sanders says Donald Trump makes “bombastic” and “silly” remarks because they get media coverage — and blamed the press for falling for the real estate developer’s act.
“I’ll give you one example,” Sanders said in an interview that aired Thursday on CNN’s “New Day.” “A recent study showed on ABC evening news, Trump over a period of time got 81 minutes of time. Bernie Sanders got 20 seconds. Now you tell me why.”
Sanders continued, “I think it has to do with the fact that Trump is very smart. He knows that media is not so interested in the serious issues facing this country. They love bombastic remarks. They love silly remarks,” he told host Chris Cuomo. “I think this is more of an indictment of the media than it is Trump.”
But Cuomo pushed back on Sanders, arguing that Trump’s coverage is reflective of his popularity in the polls.
“I don’t see it,” Cuomo said. “Do we cover him more? Yes. Why? He’s number one in the polls. He’s highly relevant. He drives the discussion.”
But Sanders — who is trailing Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton 34% to 50% in a CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday -- interrupted Cuomo to say that Trump is on top because he is able to get his message out due to all of the media coverage.
But that is what socialism is all about, everything is the same. It is giving irrelevant people and issues the same amount of attention and time as the most important and pending ones. Don’t worry Bernie, you will be given a participation trophy after Hillary Clinton wins the Democrat primaries.
Ted Cruz Blasts Washington Post Cartoon of His Age 5 and 7 Year Old Daughters as Monkeys … The Post Says Kids are “Fair Game” is Even Worse
TALK ABOUT THE DOUBLE STANDARD OF THE LIBERAL MSM AND THE DEMOCRAT MEDIA COMPLEX …
If you ever need any reminder that there is a political double standard when it comes to the media reporting on Democrats and Republicans, one needs to look no further than the WAPO and their disgusting cartoon in going after the young children of GOP presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz. The WAPO thought it perfectly okay to portray Cruz’s two young children as toy monkeys in a cartoon and stated it was perfectly fine to use them like this and called the, “fair game”. Needless to say in the firestorm and backlash that ensued following this tasteless and malicious depiction of Ted Cruz’s daughters, the WAPO removed the cartoon.
This is the same liberal media that will attack Donald Trump for going too far and yet they think its fine to say children are fair game. REALLY?
Sen. Ted Cruz launched an “emergency” appeal seeking to raise $1 million in 24 hours in response to a Washington Post online editorial cartoon depicting his two young daughters as dancing monkeys.
The Republican presidential candidate also criticized the paper for its “tasteless attack” on his children.
“My daughters are not FAIR GAME,” he wrote in a fundraising email sent late Tuesday. “I’m sickened … I knew I’d be facing attacks from day one of my campaign, but I never expected anything like this.”
Cruz accused the “liberal media” of attempting to “attack and destroy me (and my family) by any means necessary.”
The WAPO removed the tasteless cartoon with a lame apology.
Editor’s note from Fred Hiatt: It’s generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it. I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree.
UPDATE II: This is a new low even for the dirt-bag MSM …
Just curious, is everyone away that the daughters of Ted Cruz are age 5 and 7? I think the media should be asking Hillary Clinton if she thinks this is ok.
Also, i want you to imagine, just imagine if the media had ever done this to Barack Obama’s daughters and what the fire storm would be? People would have lost their jobs.
New York Daily News Nothing But an Editorial Rag, Not News … Columnist Linda Stasi Writes that Rightwing Christian who was Murdered by the Islamic Terrorists in San Bernardino was as evil as Terrorists
IDIOT OF THE WEEK … SO NOW THE LEFT-WING LUNATIC MSM IS BLAMING VICTIMS OF TERRORISM AND CLAIMING THEY ARE AS BAD AS THE TERRORISTS?
It is no wonder that the New York Daily News is having circulation issues and now they are just into link-baiting editorials so that individuals read and comment on the hideous and misguided articles. All last week the NYDN ran editorial covers on their front page following the San Bernardino radical-Islamist terrorist slaughter that saw 14 innocent lives lost, first they did the prayer shaming cover, then the one calling the NRA chief a “terrorist” who is just as bad as mass killer and now they have outdone themselves. Linda Stasi, a Daily News columnist, has penned a piece stating that a right-wing Christian who was murdered and one of the 14 innocent people killed by Islamic terrorists, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, in San Bernardino was just as evil as they were.
Check out what a Liberal, hate-filled moron looks like who would dare compare a terrorist victim to a terrorism
They were two hate-filled, bigoted municipal employees interacting in one department. Now 13 innocent people are dead in unspeakable carnage.
One man spent his free time writing frightening, NRA-loving, hate-filled screeds on Facebook about the other’s religion.
The other man quietly stewed and brewed his bigotry, collecting the kind of arsenal that the Facebook poster would have envied.
What they didn’t realize is that except for their different religions they were in many ways similar men who even had the same job.
Are you kidding me? I am in agreement with the American Conservative 100% … “What kind of person writes this? What kind of newspaper publishes it?” How in the hell does one equate an individual who was savagely murdered at the hands of a terrorist to an innocent victim who was just expressing their God given First Amendment rights of free speech? Nicholas Thalasinos, a victim of terrorism, never once killed another person because of his views or opinions. However, this is the derangement of the LEFT today and the MSM where they have such hate for anyone who is Conservative or has a differing point of view from them, that they would make the comparison. UNREAL. What kind of a bottom-feeder must you truly be to defame a deceased person who died at the hands of a terrorist.
It is vile, utterly vile, that Linda Stasi and the Daily News would speak of a murdered man that way. So, what, does the Daily News now reserve the right to look into the opinions of all murder victims, and if they don’t like what they see, publish columns saying that they are no better than the man who slaughtered them?
Stasi here reminds me of the old black-humor joke: “Sure, Hitler hated the Jews. But to be fair, the Jews also hated Hitler.”
I am not a sue happy individual, but if i were the family of Nicholas Thalasinos, I think i would be bringing a defamation and libel suit against the New York Daily News.
INTERESTING SHAKE UP IN IOWA POLLS …
As reported at CBS News, Donald Trump has returned to the top spot in Iowa at 30%. Surprisingly, Conservative Sen. Ted Cruz (TX-R) has surged into second place with 21% and thanks to the racist and bias MSM, Ben Carson has slipped to third place with 19%. According to the polls, since last month, Ted Cruz has gained ground, while Ben Carson has lost ground, among some key voting groups in Iowa: evangelicals, Tea Party supporters, those who are very conservative and older voters. However, what is still trending is that all 3 candidates are considered non-establishment GOP political outsiders.
Make no mistake about it, the liberal MSM has performed a hit on Ben Carson as the Democrat media complex and Democratic party cannot afford to have Ben Carson as the GOP presidential candidate. It would forever destroy the Democrat talking point that the GOP is racist. Once again just showing the media bias that exists, because had the media gone after and questioned Barack Obama even 25% of how they have gone after Carson, Obama would never have been elected in 2008.
Donald Trump has returned to the lead in Iowa while Ted Cruz has now surged past Ben Carson into second place. Carson has slipped from a first-place tie into third.
While Iowa’s Republicans generally feel Trump is ready to be commander-in-chief, Cruz scores even better on this measure, boosted by support from very conservative and Tea Party Iowans who feel he is ready to assume the post. That’s more than say so about Trump, Carson, Rubio and Jeb Bush.
Since last month, Ted Cruz has gained ground — and Ben Carson has lost ground — among some key voting groups in Iowa: evangelicals, Tea Party supporters, those who are very conservative and older voters. And while Trump still leads among some of these groups, it’s Cruz who is ahead among the very conservative, and Trump leads Cruz by just two points among evangelical voters.
Cruz’s move has come directly at the expense of Carson, as nearly one-quarter of his voters switched.
University of Virginia Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity Files $25 Million Lawsuit Against Rolling Stone for Faux “A Rape on Campus” Article
YOU KNEW IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME AND GOOD FOR THE UVA FRAT …
The Phi Kappa Psi fraternity at the University of Virginia has filed a $25 million lawsuit against Rolling Stone magazine for their false and libelous article they published in 2014 where they alleged that a female freshman was gang raped at the frat house during a party. It was later proved that the story was nothing but a bunch of bunk and poorly sourced and checked by Rolling Stone. The lawsuit stems from the 2014 article, “A Rape on Campus” that was supposed to depict a rape that took place upon a freshman named Jackie at the Phi Psi house on Sept. 28, 2012. The article went into great detail of how how Jackie was raped by seven men while two others watched in a second floor bedroom while a fraternity party raged downstairs. There was just one problem, it was all made up and false. Scared Monkeys had stated back in May 2015 after the UVA Dean had sued Rolling Stone, that it was only a matter of time before the fraternity did as well. Rolling Stone and the author of the article was forced to make a full apology back in April 2015. However, the wheels were already set in motion and we all knew this day was coming.
The Phi Kappa Psi fraternity chapter at the University of Virginia filed a $25 million lawsuit Monday against Rolling Stone magazine, which published an article in 2014 that alleged a freshman was gang raped at the house during a party.
The lawsuit focuses on a Rolling Stone article titled “A Rape on Campus,” which detailed a harrowing attack on a freshman named Jackie at the Phi Psi house on Sept. 28, 2012. The article, written by Sabrina Rubin Erdely, described how Jackie was raped by seven men while two others watched in a second floor bedroom while a fraternity party raged downstairs. The article alleged that the attack was part of a hazing ritual at the long-time U-Va. fraternity.
The Washington Post found significant discrepancies in the Rolling Stone account, including that the fraternity did not host a party that night in 2012 and that a student identified by Jackie as her main attacker was never a member of the fraternity and did not attend U-Va.
Two investigations — by the Columbia University journalism school and the Charlottesville Police Department — later confirmed that there was no gang rape at the fraternity.
Much more at Legal Insurrection and I second their motion that this lawsuit against Rolling Stone is going to be fun to watch.
More of Phi Psi’s statement from WaPo:
“The fraternity chapter and its student and alumni members suffered extreme damage to their reputations in the aftermath of the article’s publication and continue to suffer despite the ultimate unraveling of the story,” the Phi Psi chapter said in a statement Monday. “The article also subjected the student members and their families to danger and immense stress while jeopardizing the future existence of the chapter.”
Amid a hypocritical protest by the LEFT to squelch freedom of speech and equal time, The Donald hosted SNL …
Last night GOP presidential contender Donald Trump hosted SNL and as one of his Trump look-a likes (Taran Killam) quipped, “I think this show already got better by 2000%.” Truth of the matter is, just as the real Donald Trump predicted, last nights Saturday Night Live show was HUGE!!! According to Entertainment Weekly, SNL had a whopping 6.6 household rating on Saturday night, easily beating the season’s previous high: the 41st season premiere last month, hosted by Miley Cyrus and with a guest appearance by none other than … Hillary Clinton. The Trump’s overnight rating was 47% higher than the Miley/Hillary episode.
Donald Trump only hosted “Saturday Night Live” because he had nothing better to do.
The Republican presidential candidate made his second-ever appearance on the show, dancing to Drake and portraying his future in the White House.
“Donald — you’re the most talented guy. You’re brilliant, you’re handsome, you’re rich, you have everything going — the world is waiting for you to be president so why are you hosting Saturday Night Live?” he said during his monologue. “I didn’t have anything better to do.”
Trump also participated in a reenactment of the music video to Drake’s “Hot Line Bling,” dancing as a “tax guy,” and sang along to the now infamous chorus, “You used to call me on my cell phone.”
But of course the bias MSM and the LIBS for at the Democrat Media Complex controlled WAPO, reported that it was an over-hyped bummer. Because the WAPO is so unbias and truthful when it comes to reporting on Trump. Because it would be perfectly OK for a liberal to host or be on late night talk shows, just not Republicans who might just break the LIB myth that they are people too. As Ann Althouse opines, “I get it. You hate Trump and you’re irked that he got the platform of “Saturday Night Live” to pose on — just like Hillary Clinton a few weeks ago and all the many other politicians who’ve had a shot at hosting over the years.”
Donald Trump’s highly touted and almost certainly inappropriate hosting gig on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” turned out to be an anemic and halfhearted dud.
Once upon a time, not so long ago, there might be a lesson to learn from Saturday’s boring and misspent episode — but that world no longer exists, certainly not where politics and TV intersect. Everything’s turned upside down. Bring back the old America, I say, the one where our preeminent vehicle for topical satire would have ably skewered a hateful, nonsensical, vainglorious presidential candidate, rather than invite him into the club and give him more of the empty-calorie media attention he seeks.
