The New York Times maintained for more than three years that the government of Iran “sponsored” the September 11, 2001, attacks.

In the story which described a joint military exercise between the United States and South Korea, the Times noted that “the North Korean government belittled the joint exercise as ‘demonstrating near total ignorance of ballistic science.'” The Times obtained that “fact” from […]
The top trending topic on Twitter this morning is #CNNBlackmail after users reacted to a perceived threat the network made against the Reddit user who created the GIF, that was later turned into a video and retweeted by President Trump showing him body slamming CNN. CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski of the network’s KFILE managed to track down […]
Former American president Barack Obama was critical of President Donald Trump, his successor and one who is unraveling much of Obama’s achievements. On a trip to South Korea, Obama’s comments were an underhanded criticism of Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate change agreement: “The Paris agreement, even with the temporary absence of US leadership, will […]
After much hoopla and outcry, MSNBC will not release any correspondence to the public between President Donald Trump and MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ hosts, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. The hosts claimed that the President was almost blackmailing them in order to suppress a potentially-unflattering story about the two. If the President was trying to blackmail […]
A CNN producer, exposed by yet another Project Veritas undercover video, called American voters “stupid as sh” and said that President Donald Trump is a “fcking crazy clown”. Stay classy, anti-Trump liberals at CNN.

CNN’s Jim Acosta and other liberal media figures were upset at the irregularity of on-camera press briefings at the White House under the Trump administration. But, Townhall pointed out that the Clinton administration also felt on-camera briefings were unnecessary. Checkmate?
Democratic U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said that she never met the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, who is in the middle of the accusations of Trump-Russia collusion, but she did. Townhall pointed out that she attended a black-tie event where the ambassador was in attendance. Oops.

Thomas Friedman, who is legendary for his boldly stated wrong assertions, is making absurd claims about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the great loss the US suffers from its going down.
