MSBNC host compares Trump’s children to raping, murderous children of Saddam Hussein

The Media party continues its over the top attacks on Donald Trump and his family.

The latest is MSNBC guest Chris Matthews who compared Donald Trump’s children to Uday and Qusay Hussein.

Truth Revolt reports:

Whatever thrill used to go up and down Chris Matthews?s leg is gone now that Donald Trump is in office. Only fear and uncertainty remain as the MSNBC host makes some wild comparisons on his show.

On Monday, Matthews invoked the names of Uday and Qusay Hussein, the murderous sons of the late Iraqi president, when discussing the ?enormous power? Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner have in the White House: ? Read more »

The continued dishonesty of the NZ Herald

The Media party have been running a narrative that many Americans are leaving there and wanting to come here.

On Tuesday the NZ Herald ran this headline:

Sounds dreadful, doesn’t it? ? Read more »

Dirty Media causing problems for Labour

The Labour party has enjoyed the support of the Media party?for so long they can’t recognise when they are being played.

Right now the conventional wisdom amongst dirty media is that Labour needs to change their deputy because?Jacinda Ardern got a measly 10,000 votes in a by-election labour was always going to win.

They are going all in, perhaps because they realise that they can’t touch National with their machinations so they may as well give Andrew Little and Annette King a tickle up in a bid to make Labour more competitive than they really are.

Tracy Watkins sticks her oar in.

The best advice is free they say. And there is never any shortage of it when you are leader of the Opposition.

Labour leader Andrew Little must feel like he’s been hit by a wall of advice – well meaning or not – since the Mt Albert by-election reminded everyone that Jacinda Ardern is one of Labour’s biggest assets.

So here’s some more and Annette King won’t like it very much. ? Read more »

Where have you read this before? Media is real ‘opposition party’

Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump?s combative chief strategist, said his administration considered the media to be America’s real “opposition party”.

In a rare interview with the New York Times, Mr Bannon said: “You?re the opposition party. Not the Democratic Party. The media is the opposition party.

“They don?t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the President of the United States. That?s why you have no power. You were humiliated.”

He said the media should “keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while”.

Fat chance. ? The media, as an opposition party, are trying to create outcomes. ?They aren’t interested in listening. ?They are interested in placing their thoughts into the readers’ minds to replace the thoughts of the politicians they don’t agree with. ? Read more »

“National poaching Labour MPs” says media. Erm, nope

John Key has hinted that National is actively trying to poach current and former Labour MPs to jump ship ahead of the 2017 election.

It comes after ex-Porirua mayor and former paid-up Labour member Nick Leggett joined the National Party. He is the frontrunner to replace Hekia Parata as the party’s Mana electorate candidate.

Now the Prime Minister has suggested more MPs may switch from red to blue.

When asked if the National Party had approached any Labour MPs, John Key gave a cagey grin and said they’re “always” talking to people.

But he provided no clues as to whom – answering that question with: “See ya”.

Mr Leggett resigned his Labour Party membership earlier this year so he could run for the Wellington Mayoralty against Labour-endorsed Justin Lester. Read more »

Media still not taking Trump presidency seriously


The video posted above features CNN correspondent Suzanne Malveaux, who was at the Carrier plant in Indiana Thursday to report on President-elect Donald Trump’s speech. While prepping for the live segment, the CNN crew can be heard in the background. At one point, someone, likely a producer, can be heard stating that they would give a signal once Trump’s plane had landed.

Then the voice can be heard saying, “That means his plane?s crashed?just kidding.” Read more »

So, the NZ Herald spent six months on an “investigation” into hair extensions

The NZ Herald states that they spent six months investigating?hair extensions and where they come from.

Here is a tweet from one of their journalists bragging about it:

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-9-45-10-pmSounds impressive. Then another of their journalists gets snippy on Facebook because someone criticised their 6 months worth of work. Read more »

They never saw it coming

Bernard Goldberg at Real Clear Politics assesses the political tsunami that no one in the media saw coming.

I’m going to take a wild guess and say that nobody in what passes for the mainstream media saw the tsunami coming, the wave of discontent that we witnessed on Election Day.

I’m sure there were one or two journalists who said something like, “Of course, Trump must be taken seriously because, as we all know (ha-ha) he could win.” But I’m pretty sure that’s not what they were saying privately. And how many thought Donald Trump would win and the GOP would hang onto both the House and the Senate? I’ll be generous and say it was a number slightly greater than zero.

Not much greater than zero.

It’s no secret that reporters were rooting for Hillary Clinton. All that was missing were buttons on their coats saying, “I’m with her.” As Will Rahn nicely put it on the CBS News website: “Had Hillary Clinton won, there’d be a winking ‘we did it’ feeling in the press, a sense that we were brave and called Trump a liar and saved the republic.”

The media elite thought she was right when she said half of Trump supporters belonged in a basket of deplorables. They thought if his minions weren’t racist or sexist, they were, you know, not too smart.

So, on Election Day, voters fed up with the arrogance of the elites didn’t only reject Hillary Clinton — or Barack Obama and his legacy, or big swatches of liberal culture in general — they also rejected the liberal media elite, the ones who thought they were smarter and better than ordinary Americans.

David Cohen on NZ punditry misses with US election

David Cohen writes at NBR:

Despite having pressed every conceivable New Zealand angle into the service of its coverage of the impending election, our news media (except Fran O?Sullivan, who got it right) has been notably shy over the past week in localising this most important international aspect of the result, even if it only meant a ruefully self-deprecating editorial chuckle on the pundit front.

Alas, it has been more of the same exquisite condensation. Thus, the?Herald?s?Paul Little, who in August declared it ?just two months and a few days until Hillary Clinton wins the election for president of the United States,? this week wrote about the majority of Americans, presumably including its people of colour, who ?are not good people with fully functioning hearts and minds.? ?

Another reader emails Fairfax

Another reader has emailed Fairfax:

Hi Fairfax,

Please stop treating us like this.? Please stop sneaking in left wing politics into entertainment sections like Your Weekend and film reviews to support your Uber liberal narrative. I don’t want to read so-called comedians support anti-democracy protests, or how JK Rowling is so fantastic because she’s a globalist in your film reviews.

And stop it already with how fantastic transgender women are. I’m sorry you think real women pale in comparison but that’s just not true. We matter and we matter more than those who think they’re women. ? Read more »
