  • ABC, NBC Treat Trump’s India Trip as Sightseeing, Ignore Trade Efforts
    by Nicholas Fondacaro on February 25, 2020 at 2:00 am

    One of the big announcements to come out of President Trump’s visit to India, so-far this week, was a $3 billion deal to supply the country with new military helicopters. But the viewers of ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News on Monday were misled to believe the visit as just the President was just on a sightseeing trip by ignoring the deal and other trade negotiations. Combined, the two networks didn’t even spend 30 seconds on Trump’s official trip abroad.

  • ‘The New Pope’ Labels Two Popes ‘Antichrist’ and ‘Irresponsible’
    by Lindsay Kornick on February 25, 2020 at 2:00 am

    Here’s the shocking revelation of the latest episode of The New Pope: the Pope is not a good person. Even though the previous season of The Young Pope made that pretty clear, the HBO series still has to hammer home that unpleasant fact. Now we’re contending with an “antichrist” young Pope along with an “irresponsible,” “conceited,” drug addicted new Pope. The only winners here are those who don't watch the show.

    by Curtis Houck on February 24, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    What in the world is Paul Krugman talking about? And yes, this is quite the evergreen take, but the New York Times columnist has done it again, folks. This time, he tweeted on Sunday that 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders (I-VT) “is NOT a left-leaning version of Trump” or “a wannabe authoritarian ruler.” RedState's Sister Toldjah had a field day on Monday, recapping how this was only the latest bizarre insistence Krugman has offered during this 2020 cycle.

  • Media Loved Castro As Much As Bernie – Maybe More
    by Kyle Drennen on February 24, 2020 at 9:15 pm

    Perhaps the reason why Monday’s network morning shows only spent a combined 74 seconds discussing socialist Senator Bernie Sanders singing the praises of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro was because journalists on NBC, ABC, and CBS knew full well that they had provided even more effusive commentary on the communist autocrat.

  • Twitter Suspends 70 Pro-Bloomberg Accounts for ‘Platform Manipulation’
    by Alexander Hall on February 24, 2020 at 8:30 pm

    Can Bloomberg’s money hack the election? Twitter moderators would disagree. Twitter reportedly suspended 70 pro-Bloomberg accounts this past Friday for engaging in “platform manipulation.” For all of former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s money and unorthodox media strategies, he can't seem to buy an authentic grassroots following. “We have taken enforcement action on a group of accounts for violating our rules against platform manipulation and spam,” a Twitter spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times (The Times).
