For what it's worth, BuzzFeed News is standing by its reporting. It's also worth noting that the Special Counsel's statement disputed the reporting's "description of specific statements" and "characterization of documents and testimony," leaving in question the extent to which the overall reporting may have been accurate or inaccurate.

I would also note that, although I didn't see every news report covering the BuzzFeed story, the media outlets that I observed emphasized the fact that they had not been able to verify BuzzFeed's reporting.

Lol. Even Buzzfeed wasn't able to verify the Buzzfeed story.

Cormier, who wouldn't reveal his sources when asked, said the story had been in the works for months and went through a 'rigorous' vetting process. The story was reviewed by at least three editors, [BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben] Smith said."

I mean, the special counsel has already described it as inaccurate. But I guess we will see.

Most underrated response.

Also, I think it's hilarious that the thread author has essentially fled for the last 8+ years. I guess trumptruck was a bridge too far.

I find it hard to believe that the VA Republican gubernatorial election campaign did not dig that blackface/kkk picture up. How was that missed? I mean wouldn't be oppo research 101 to dig up all yearbooks of the opposition candidate?

I also find it hard to believe that the media itself didn't did that up.

Yea but just like we saw last week, it wouldn't have needed verification. Someone from Gillespie's camp would have just needed to toss it out there, associate the page with Northam, and let the people do what they do. It would've ended him before he got started. Interesting that didn't happen. Guess they were trying to keep it above-board.

CNN is trying to fabricate a controversy by lying and saying that Rep. Omar yelled at and angrily replied to CNN correspondent Manu Raju despite the video clearly showing nothing of the sort

the new left has the establishment so shook

"Lara Logan Slams Media For Becoming Left-Wing "Propagandists" With "Horseshit" Low Standards"

Worth it for the video alone. But this quote is pretty striking.

Quote :
" "The media everywhere is mostly liberal. Not just in the U.S. But in this country, 85 percent of journalists are registered Democrats. So that’s just a fact, right?... So the facts are on the side of what you just stated. Most journalists are left or liberal or Democrat or whatever word you want to give it. I always joke about the other 14 percent were too lazy to register. And there’s maybe one percent that’s on the right.""

Man, good hire by CNN! That’ll show we have no political bias! Maybe Jeff Sessions can host the 9pm hour!

I’m asking this question in earnest but was the run-up to 2016 election investigations in to Benghazi and EMMAIIILLLSS by the GOP-controlled Congress covered as “will the overreach hurt them” or was it just about the investigations.

Anecdotally it almost always seems that the MSM falls directly into the GOP narrative.

It's a bigotry of low expectations. It's political brilliance if Republicans manage to wipe their ass and put on pants. If Democrats don't roll a 300, it's a total disaster and the end of American liberalism.

Mainstream media's bullshit has been especially difficult to put up with this week. None of these authors are legitimate journalists. I think all of these corporate news outlets are trash but know there are a lot of people on here who respect them so I want to start keeping receipts of their antics.

"It comes as pressure is mounting on Maduro to step down, following elections in January in which voters chose opposition leader Juan Guaido over him for president."


The elections they mentioned never happened. The 6 collaborators knew this but had a mission to fulfill. They fixed it over a day later. Of course CNN takes the cake when it comes to fake news.

Israelis = civilians and get "killed"
Palestinians =/= civilians and just "die"

This was an AP story removed from yahoo but also posted on many news sites with the same headline that the AP later withdrew

https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2019/05/07/americans-spend-thousands-on-nonessentials/39450207/
'Americans are wasting money on things like lunch, personal grooming, and transportation. '

Tone-deaf articles like this reinforce the anti-working class elitism of the media. Your insurance doesn't cost too much, your wages aren't too low, and if you only completed stopped this "bad habit" of enjoying anything, you'd be able to barely scrape by.



https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/05/05/tyts_john_iadarola_cnn_poll_showing_biden_in_the_lead_sample_statistically_insignificant_number_of_voters_under_50.html
CNN and the rest of the media lying about the polls by misrepresenting data. They use this as a weapon to create fake momentum for the candidate that will protect their interests.
Quote :
"On Tuesday there was a CNN poll showing Biden at 39, Sanders at 15, and Warren at 8. That is not only a big lead for Biden over Sanders, it is also a big jump for Biden, who had generally been in the high 20s, occasionally 30-31.

That's a big jump, but I want to show you the actual demographic breakdown in the poll. The text is very small and there's a lot of stuff there, but what you will notice immediately is there's a lot of N/As. And the N/As are in the category of people between the ages of 18-34 and 35-49. Now, a lot of people noticed that. That does not mean that they didn't have any respondents in those ages, they did. It just means that there weren't enough of them to consider it to be a representative sample for opinions held by those people, there just weren't enough of them. Overall it means that the results are going to be a good bit biased because what you are really polling is not people, it is the oldest age groups in America.

Is it a shock that they might prefer Joe Biden over some of the other candidates? Again, it doesn't mean that he didn't experience some sort of bump, or that the bump might not be sustainable, but the headlines never said, "Joe Biden Gets Big Bump In Poll Of Septuagenarians," it says "Joe Biden Up Big," pack this thing in, it's done..."
