The American’s for Internet and Social Media Fair Use Act

Published

on

By Greg Holt

The American Left’s deep passion for not only misconstruing news, but reporting outright falsehood has gone completely off the rails. Even an Internet server provider (Microsoft Azure) threatened to shut down Gab, a social media platform because Microsoft took exception to two posts on Gab. Social Media Censoring is at an all-time high and getting worse by the day.

It then occurred to this author – why not right a “law” addressing these concerns to get people thinking, hopefully. The following is the result of my deliberations.

Home Depot Co-Founder: Media Has Done A ‘Wonderful Job Frightening America’

Published

on

Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus has credited the MSM for “frightening America.”

Speaking with Fox News‘ Laura Ingraham of Marcus said that America needs to focus on protecting the vulnerable instead of locking everyone down.

Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus: Media have done a 'wonderful job frightening America'

Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus said Monday that the media have done a “wonderful job in frightening America" about the coronavirus pandemic.“My age bracket is really the problem. If we take care of my age bracket, that is 70 or above, I think that we can end a lot of the problems that are out there," Marcus told the “Ingraham Angle" on Monday. "People that are 70 or above have to be so careful because you are compromised in many different ways. But we’re only a small portion of the population and we’re closing down everybody, in addition to the schools."

“My age bracket is really the problem. If we take care of my age bracket, that is 70 or above, I think that we can end a lot of the problems that are out there,” Marcus said. “People that are 70 or above have to be so careful because you are compromised in many different ways. But we’re only a small portion of the population and we’re closing down everybody, in addition to the schools.”

He went on to cite Florida and Georgia as examples of states taking the correct initiatives going forward by reopening businesses.

“What they did is a perfect example of thinking and understanding that people needed to get out the house, needed to start their businesses again, needed to go to work again,” he said. “But there are bureaucrats all over the country in the blue states that are still closed and god knows when they’ll open. Those people up there, they are still struggling and it is desperation time for many of them.”

100% agree. The media machine, and especially the Liberal rags, have an agenda to influence the 2020 election by any means possible!

Kayleigh McEnany Torches Mainstream Media During Coronavirus Briefing

We can only assume that a steady stream of McEnany mic-drops are coming our way…and that’s just fine by us. 

Published

on

There has been plenty of turnover in the Trump White House, and opponents of President Trump like to throw that around as though it indicates trouble at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  While some of the recent shakeups certainly arose from dubious means, much of the shuffling that we see is simply a byproduct of the Commander in Chief’s management style.

Trump is a resultist – The ends will always justify the means under his guidance, and he moves quickly.  If a subordinate isn’t performing at his level, poof, they’re gone.

Knowing this, new White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is certainly hoping to speed up the learning curve in her new position; otherwise, she too could be former White House Press Secretary.

Judging by how she handles the press, it would seem that she’s getting the hang of things rather quickly.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany reacts to an Asian-American reporter taking offense to President Donald Trump telling her to ask China about people “losing their lives everywhere in the world.” In an interview with “FOX & Friends” on Tuesday, McEnany said reporters are making the pandemic about themselves.

“What I would note is, leave it to members of the White House press corps to make it about them, to take a question, to turn around and somehow say, how dare you ask this of me, me, me. Well, guess what, it’s not about me. This is about the American people,” McEnany said.

“President Trump says ask China about this, ask China about the facts that they slow-walked information, that alongside the WHO, that American lives were put at risk,” she said. “China has some real questions to answer here, but leave it about the White House press corps to make it about themselves.”

We can only assume that a steady stream of McEnany mic-drops are coming our way…and that’s just fine by us.

Fox News Bans Popular Commentators Diamond & Silk

Fox News has initiated an end to their collaboration with popular conservative commentators Diamond & Silk after recent comments about the coronavirus.

Published

Fox News has initiated an end to their collaboration with popular conservative commentators Diamond & Silk after recent comments about the coronavirus.

The announcement comes on the heels of the bombastic pair’s comments that the number of coronavirus deaths have been inflated in order to attack President Donald Trump.

“What I need to know is how many people have passed away in New York, and what I need to know is: Who has the bodies?” Diamond said during a March 30th livestream. “I need for somebody that does investigative work to call the morgues. To call the funeral homes. We need to know, because I don’t trust anything else that comes out of his mouth now… Something’s not right here. Something is off here.”

Diamond continued saying, “Is this being deliberately spread? Look, I’m not being a conspiracy theorist, this is real, but I’m asking my own questions. What the hell is going on?”

But according to a report by the left-wing Daily Beast, Fox executives were not happy with the comments.

Daily Beast claimed that the duo, whose real names are Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway and Rochelle “Silk” Richardson, are now unlikely to return to the network as guest commentators.

“After what they’ve said and tweeted you won’t be seeing them on Fox Nation or Fox News anytime soon,” the source told Daily Beast.

The pair, who have been a favorite at Trump rallies, last appeared on Fox News on March 7.

Moves like this has sent the president into criticism of the once conservative-leaning network.

Trump slammed Fox in a Tweet on Sunday.

“Fox keeps on plugging to try and become politically correct,” the president tweeted. “They put RINO Paul Ryan on their Board. They hire “debate questions to Crooked Hillary fraud Donna Brazile (and others who are even worse).”

“Fox News just doesn’t get what’s happening!” he added. “They are being fed Democrat talking points, and they play them without hesitation or research.”

POTUS Pushes for OANN to Replace Fox News as Chris Wallace Continues Anti-Trump Tirades

If you told us 4 years ago that a Republican President would be in public fight with Fox News, we may have laughed you right out of the room.

Published

on

The media wars that have taken place over the last decade or so of American history are far from over, and every crisis we face seems to expose yet another troubling facet of the fight ahead.

Things used to be fairly simple:  CNN, MSNBC, and others were on the left, and Fox News was on the right.  Now that President Trump has shattered all expectations about what American politics could be, nobody seems too sure about where these networks land these days.

This is especially true when it comes to Fox News, who have been consistently bucking the Trump doctrine via longtime personalties like Chris Wallace.  President Trump himself has repeatedly called out Wallace and Fox for their negative coverage of his time in office, and this week he’s taking his criticism a step further by suggesting that One American News Network may be a viable conservative alternative to the mainstream cable staple.

What he’s tweeting:

“@FoxNews just doesn’t get what’s happening! They are being fed Democrat talking points, and they play them without hesitation or research. They forgot that Fake News @CNN & MSDNC wouldn’t let @FoxNews participate, even a little bit, in the poor ratings Democrat Debates.

Even the Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats laughed at the Fox suggestion. No respect for the people running @FoxNews. But Fox keeps on plugging to try and become politically correct. They put RINO Paul Ryan on their Board. They hire ‘debate questions to Crooked Hillary’ fraud @donnabrazile (and others who are even worse).

Chris Wallace is nastier to Republicans than even Deface the Nation or Sleepy Eyes. The people who are watching @FoxNews, in record numbers (thank you President Trump), are angry. They want an alternative now. So do I!”Between the lines: Trump has evidently found the “alternative” he’s calling for in One America News Network. He has repeatedly praised the network’s coverage of his administration and has offered favorable treatment to its reporters.

  • Trump tweeted earlier this month: “Watching @FoxNews on weekend afternoons is a total waste of time. We now have some great alternatives, like @OANN.”

Trump’s unconventional honesty may be bad news for Chris Wallace and the rest of the mainstream media cabal, but OANN is likely smiling all the way to the bank.

A Day After Laying ‘Disinfectant’ Trap for Infotainment Industry, Trump ‘Ghosts’ the Press Corps

This leaves the infotainment industry wondering what’s better for their ratings:  Lambasting the President over an obvious joke, or having nothing at all to work with.

Published

on

The mainstream media was furious on Friday, after once again falling for a cleverly-laid trap by President Trump.

On Thursday, utilizing an extremely dry bit of wit, President Trump mentioned the possibility of testing “injected” disinfectants in the battle against coronavirus.  Unbelievably, this sarcastic remark was somehow mistaken as literal by the mainstream media, and the President on Friday said the mentioned the bizarre idea “just to see what happens”.

Well, what happened was that the infotainment industry spent the next 18 hours obsessing over the joke and pretending that it was a serious suggestion.

Trump had again played them like a fiddle.  Then, as if to add an emphatic period to the end of a sentence, Trump simply left these media miscreants hanging on Friday.

President Donald Trump on Friday exited the White House coronavirus press briefing without taking any questions from reporters.

The president concluded the briefing after he and his team delivered opening statements, saying, “Thank you very much,” before turning and exiting the room. Reporters shouted questions as he walked away.

The president suffered a brutal 24 hours of news coverage after he asked whether disinfectant or ultraviolet light could be used in the body to fight the Wuhan coronavirus.

But there may have been a reason for the kerfuffle…

Prior to the briefing, reporters said that White House staff tried to change seating in the press briefing room, moving CNN to the back of the room and moving Washington Blade reporter Chris Johnson to the front.

“White House staff just came into the briefing room and informed the print pooler that they want them to swap seats w CNN,” Yahoo News media reporter Hunter Walker wrote on Twitter. “That would move CNN to the back row from the front.”

Reporters refused to move, even though the White House staffer threatened to have Secret Service enforce the seat change.

This leaves the infotainment industry wondering what’s better for their ratings:  Lambasting the President over an obvious joke, or having nothing at all to work with.

Jim Acosta Gets Scolded by President Trump After ‘Mansplaining’ to Dr. Deborah Birx

Even his fellow CNN reporters were blasting Acosta over the outburst.

Published

on

During times of crisis there are both saviors and vultures.  Modern day is no exception.

As is often the case with tragedies, the mainstream media is tripping over themselves in an attempt to exploit this pandemic for ratings.  They see the sudden influx of casual news watchers as a school of naive fish, and they are going to anchor their boat, sharpen their hooks, and get to pillaging.  They’ll use sensationalism and fear to keep us coming back for more, thus increasing their value to advertisers.

Our mental health and stress are directly correlated to just how much money these media moguls make.

That’s why CNN reporter Jim Acosta is so abrasive – it brings in viewers.  The White House correspondent had a busy week this week, both sparring with President Trump and “mansplaining” something to Dr. Deborah Birx.

“We can talk about why didn’t Italy do something or Spain do something or Germany do something, or we can really say right now — we all can do something,” Dr. Birx explained. “We can do the social distancing and all of the pieces that we know is starting to work around the globe in country after country. And then when we get through all of this, we can ask the questions about could we have done some piece of this better as a global community.”

She then pivoted to the apparent errors the World Health Organization (WHO) made leading up to the outbreak in the U.S. as something that should be examined.

Here’s where Acosta crosses the line, and gets figuratively spanked by President Trump in the process.

“I will remind you that on February 3rd, the head of the WHO said there was no reason to ever do a travel ban,” Dr. Birx continued. “It wasn’t until January 14th that we knew that there was human-to-human transmission,”

Acosta quickly derailed her observations about WHO to knock President Trump.

“Dr. Birx, the president was saying this was going to go away,” Acosta said. “It’s April.”

“It is going to go away,” President Trump fired back. “I said it was going away and it is going away.”

Even some of Acosta’s colleagues at CNN were befuddled by his behavior, with correspondent Jonathan Karl accusing Acosta of playing into the President’s strategy of demonizing the press.
