The President Donald Trump 2017 Fake News Awards … Liberal Democrat Media Complex Continues Their Bias, False Reporting
SO MANY PEOPLE WANTED TO SEE THIS THAT IT SHUT DOWN THE GOP.GOV SERVERS …
It is the announcement of the much anticipated 2017 President Donald Trump Fake News Awards. Check out the winners below. We have known for years that the MSM was liberal and bias; however, under the Trump presidency they have sunk to new low levels. This is not a matter of news stories that Trump did not like, these are false news stories just made up by the media. The liberal MSM just passes off opinion and their liberal agenda as fact. The #1 fake news story of 2017 was the preposterous one where the New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic victory over Hillary Clinton that the economy would never recover. How ignorant and foolish could one possibly be? Sorry Business Insider, if the news-media industry is in fact governed by a foundational set of ethical standards and doesn’t just write whatever they want to, then none of the stories below would have ever made public. The fact is there is only one standard for the media, pushing their liberal agenda and crafting stories to said agenda.
The media is trusted with First Amendment rights and freedom of speech. This is a great responsibility and not to be used to just provide hit jobs against individuals you do not like. If you dislike the president calling you “fake news” then print the truth. Provide the same media standard you did for Barack Obama to Trump. Because at this point, journalism is pretty much dead in the US.
- The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover. (Never recover, eh? Instead we are witness to a record DOW over 26,000, jogs being created and blacks and Hispanics are all-time record lows in unemployment. What did almost crash the stock markets was the #2 Fake story from Brian Ross.)
- ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.
- CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.
- TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.
- Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.
- CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.
- CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand.
- CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.
- The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.
- And last, but not least: “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!
Why were 90% of news stories negative to President Donald Trump from the media? That hardly took place under 8 years of Obama. Where was the media on the incredibly accomplishments of the United States economy under President Trump like the economy creating nearly 2 million jobs and gained over $8 trillion in wealth since the President’s inauguration, African Americans and Hispanics enjoying the lowest unemployment rate in recorded history, the Trump tax cuts and relief for hardworking Americans, the corporate tax cuts that have provided bonuses and other benefits to over 2 million employees to date, Trump’s plan to cut regulations issuing 22 deregulatory actions for every one new regulatory action, the American energy boom by ending Obama-era regulations, approving the Keystone pipeline, auctioning off millions of new acres for energy exploration, and opening up ANWR, the threat of ISIS and their Caliphate being crushed in Iraq and Syria, and so many more.
As reported at CNN, Matt Lauer was fired from NBC News due to a complaint flied by an employee into “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.” According to Page 6, Lauer allegedly sexually assaulted a female NBC staffer during the Rio Olympics. The NBC staffer, who wishes to remain anonymous, complained to NBC bosses yesterday, prompting them to move fast and fire him. As per NBC News, this may not be an isolated incident. Savannah Guthrie read a statement from NBC News chairman Andy Lack, stating that the company has received a detailed complaint from a colleague Monday night “about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace” by Lauer.
Matt Lauer was fired from NBC News on Wednesday after an employee filed a complaint about “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace,” the network announced.
Savannah Guthrie made the announcement at the top of the “Today” show. Lauer has been the cornerstone of the program, one of the most profitable franchises on television, for two decades.
NBC News chairman Andrew Lack said in a memo to staff that it was the first complaint lodged against Lauer in his career at the network. But he said “we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.”
Lauer was informed of the network’s decision late Tuesday night, before he went to bed, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Reporters for The New York Times and Variety had been investigating Lauer for several weeks, according to sources who had been contacted by the Times.
Guthrie said she was informed just moments before going on the air.
“This is a sad morning at ‘Today’ and NBC News,” she said. “As I’m sure you can understand, we are devastated. I’m heartbroken for Matt.”
Guthrie also said she was heartbroken for the woman who accused Lauer of misconduct, noting “it’s long overdue” that women feel comfortable coming forward against abusive men.
Hoda Kotb, on the set with Guthrie, said she has known Lauer for years and “loved him as a friend and a colleague.”
“It’s hard to reconcile the man who walks in every day” with the person who was identified in the complaint, she said.
Lauer, 59, was named a co-anchor of “Today” in January 1997 after three years as the newsreader.
ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST …
Matt Zimmerman is out at NBC News. Zimmerman was fired amid allegations of inappropriate conduct and sexual harassment by two women at the news division. Matt Zimmerman was the senior VP of booking, news and entertainment and worked with NBC since at least 2004 and primarily handled bookings on “Today” and other NBC News programs. One has to wonder if there will be anyone left in the news rooms after the purge.
Matt Zimmerman, a veteran of NBC News, has been fired amid allegations of inappropriate conduct with two women at the news division.
“We have recently learned that Matt Zimmerman engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman at NBCU, which violated company policy. As a result, he has been dismissed,” an NBC News spokesperson said Tuesday in a statement.
Sources say the allegations were recently brought to the attention of human resources. At issue were multiple relationships with women who were junior to Zimmerman and, in at least one case, a direct report, said one source. NBC News policy stipulates that such relationships must be disclosed to human resources. Zimmerman, who was a senior VP at NBC News, is a veteran of The Today Show and in 2014 was elevated to lead a streamlined NBC News booking department.
THE LIBERAL MEDIA DOUBLE STANDARD: WHO THINKS NBC WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME IF THE NAME HARVEY WEINSTEIN WAS REPLACED WITH DONALD TRUMP?
What is worse than fake news? How about news that is knowing not reported to meet an agenda?
The below article below from the HUFFPO regarding Ronan Farrow, an NBC News contributor, had secured an interview with a woman who was willing to appear on camera, in silhouette, her identity concealed, saying that Harvey Weinstein had raped her is even larger than the crime of rape itself. As if sexual assault and rape is not bad enough. But for a news outlet like NBC to knowingly, willfully and purposely spike the Weinstein story because of who he was might be even more heinous. An effort by the liberal MSM to protect their own. Would they have done the same for say, Donald Trump? Hell no! As we all know that NBC News and MSNBC certainly ran with the Billy Bush-Trump tapes. But some how, a raunchy tape of two men disgusting talk about woman is worse than a predator who for decades sexually assaulted women in Hollywood. Really? Everyone knew the truth. They knew the stories were much more than rumors, but the liberal media decided to take part in a systemic quashing of the story for fear one of their own would be outed for the disgusting, POS, predator that he was. SHAME ON YOU NBC.
The NBC peacock is Dead
In mid-August, Ronan Farrow, an NBC News contributor, had secured an interview with a woman who was willing to appear on camera, in silhouette, her identity concealed, and say Harvey Weinstein had raped her, according to four people with close knowledge of the reporting. It was a pivotal moment in a testy, months-long process of reporting a story that had bedeviled a generation of media and Hollywood reporters.
Farrow had a lot of material already. In March, he had acquired a damning and much-coveted audio recording in which Weinstein admits to having groped an Italian model. He had interviews with former executives and assistants who’d worked closely with Weinstein who spoke about the culture of harassment and abuse he perpetrated. And now he had someone ready to accuse Weinstein of rape, on camera.
But at that moment Farrow was also caught in the pincers of an NBC News edict. He had been told by executives at NBC News that he didn’t have enough reporting to go on air with his Weinstein story, according to four sources, and he had been told by the network to stop reporting on it. NBC tried to put a stop to the interview with the woman accusing Weinstein of rape. The network insisted he not use an NBC News crew for the interview, and neither was he to mention his NBC News affiliation. And so that was how Ronan Farrow wound up paying out of his own pocket for a camera crew to film an interview.
As a project for NBC News, Farrow’s story was effectively dead. Later that month, he received permission to take his reporting to another news organization. The story that resulted, published Tuesday by The New Yorker, was a blockbuster: multiple women accusing Weinstein of rape and other sexual misconduct, accompanied by the audio of Weinstein admitting to sexual assault. [...]
Then he struck a rueful tone, suggesting that the NBC iteration of the story had died of natural causes. “We reached a point over the summer where we, as an organization, didn’t feel that we had all the elements that we needed to air,” he said.
Yet interviews with 12 people inside and outside NBC News with direct knowledge of the reporting behind Farrow’s story suggest a different cause of death. All of the sources who spoke to HuffPost asked not to be named, either because they weren’t authorized to speak to the media about the story or because they were fearful of retribution from NBC News executives. These sources detailed a months-long struggle within NBC News during which Oppenheim and other executives slow-walked Farrow’s story, crippling it with their qualms and irresolution.
Toward the end, the concerns seemed to take on a personal tone, and it became difficult to tell where the Weinstein team’s attempts to discredit the story left off and NBC News’ editorial forbearance began. According to multiple sources inside and outside of NBC News who worked on the aborted story, Oppenheim related to Farrow what Weinstein’s lawyers had said in complaint to NBC:
NBC Reporter Andrea Mitchell Gets Destroyed by State Dept Spox Heather Nauert On Trump’s Threat To North Korea (VIDEO)
MSM GETS DESTROYED … MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN!!!
During yesterdays presser, State Dept Spokesperson Heather Nauert reminded the liberal MSM exactly really what is alarming and it was not the comments made by President Donald Trump regarding, “fire and fury”. The MSM acts as if a country making the threat of a nuclear attack is perfectly ok and should not be responded to. Nauert actually had to scold and lecture the media as to the gravity of the situation going on with North Korea as the MSM just wants to play silly season and attack Trump. Sorry, the Obama days are over of apologies to our enemies and drawing faux lines in the sand. There is a reason why Trump was elected by the American people and the MSM still cannot stand it. The days of kicking the can down the road with North Korea, as other presidents have done of both parties, are over.
“Let’s consider what is alarming,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said. “What is alarming: two ICBM tests in less than a month, two nuclear tests that took place last year.”
“It is a big deal what is going on,” she added. “It is a concern to the world, not just the United States. Those are alarming actions, they’re provocative actions on the part of North Korea.”
“The United States is on the same page,” she said. “Whether it’s the White House, the State Department, the Department of Defense, we are speaking with one voice, and the world is, in fact, speaking with one voice.”
