Associated Press, loyal servant

Of the Democrat Party, of course.

“The Associated Press is a loyal servant of the Democratic Party and its liberal components. If you doubt that assertion, consider today’s AP article on the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court term by reporter Mark Sherman.”

All liberal comment. Much of it anti-Trump. Not a conservative or even a moderate in the bunch. AP really has trouble with objectivity.

“The Associated Press plays this game every day, in pretty much all of its coverage. Frame issues the way the Democratic Party wants them framed, then turn to liberal ‘experts’ for comment. Are reporters like Mark Sherman fooling anyone? No, which is why trust in the media is in the toilet…”

A good old fashioned fisking by retired lawyer John Hinderaker.

Low IQ Mika gets it back

I had to laugh at Trump’s “face lift” “low IQ” retort to “Scarborough’s blonde ice mannequin/sex doll,” as Althouse commenter Basil Duke calls her. She’s been calling him names for months now.

I know. I watch them on the monitors at the J when I’m treadmilling. Not exclusively. I prefer Fox, hell, even CNN, which is anti-Trump 24/7. Nobody’s as rabidly nasty as the lefty clowns of MSNBC.

Comes the usual Never Trumper GOPe’s bedwetters complaining about his lack of presidential dignity. They were so much happier with W who meekly took the lefty shit. As ACE puts it: “We are not in a normal situation. Why do the sob sisters and pearl-clutchers of the Pretend Right insist on pretending the media’s behavior is normal and that it’s only Trump who’s guilty of ‘norm-breaking’?”

Why to keep shoving him towards impeachment, that’s why. Trump ain’t the type to care, obviously. He’s a New York City counter-puncher. Who, as another Althouse commenter, Drago puts it, “knows how to launch these lefties into Lefty Idiot Orbit.”

More power to him. He keeps them distracted while he does the real work.

Charles Hurt at the Washington Times loved it: “Of course, the puritanical schoolmarms of the political press went absolutely bonkers over Mr. Trump’s broadside of their fellow travelers. They scolded him that his Twitter missives were beneath the office of the president. Really, you mean like molesting an intern in the Oval Office? ‘Presidential’ like that?”

UPDATE:  In a subsequent Tweet, the president referred to Scarborough as “crazy” and Mika as “dumb as a rock.”

I like your tweets, DJT

And I hope you keep them up. They are a refreshing change from the usual establishment play of presidents hiding behind spokesfolk and telepromptered speeches.

“The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media – over 100 million people!” Trump tweeted. “I can go around them.”

Indeed you can and you have to all our benefit. Don’t let the fake news of the Mediacrats get you down. Much less tell you what to do.

Don’t blame me for Hodgkinson’s disease

“When an outspoken Democratic voter opens fire on a group of Republicans practicing baseball, the media blame everyone. Or just Trump.”

Exactly like when Lee Oswald, a known Communist-sympathizer, killed JFK, we were somehow all to blame, especially Texans. What cow pies the Mediacrats fling.

London: Fake News In The Making

“This is a good example of fake news of an unusually important kind. One of the great issues of our time is whether ‘normal’ Muslims are willing to take decisive action against Islamic terrorism. The evidence so far is not encouraging; if it were, CNN and the AP wouldn’t need to stage photo-ops.”

UPDATE:  Incredibly, Certainly Not News’ allies in the biz (including Fox) ignored the video showing them handing out the protest signs and did standard denial stories like the video never existed. So did Snopes, which has become utterly untrustworthy.

Comey’s revenge a gun without powder

“Under the law, Comey is required to immediately inform the Department of Justice of any attempt to obstruct justice by any person, even the President of the United States.  Failure to do so would result in criminal charges against Comey.  (18 USC 4 and 28 USC 1361)  He would also, upon sufficient proof, lose his license to practice law.

“….If Comey concluded, however, that Trump’s language was vague, ambiguous or elliptical, then he has no duty under the law to report it because it does not rise to the level of specific intent.  Thus, no crime.”

On either side. As Breitbart says: “…Assuming, for the sake of argument, that the Comey memo is accurate, what Trump says — ‘I hope you can let this go … I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go … He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.’ — is never actually framed as a request at all. Yet the [NY] Times calls it a ‘request’ and an effort to interfere in the investigation.

Not that the Mediacrats or the anti-Trump pols will care to argue about it. They’ll very likely use it to try for the impeachment the networks already are pushing.

End the “daily briefings” now

“Yes, I spent 25 years as a member of the MSM, 16 of them at Time magazine at the pinnacle of its fame and influence. Still, I have to agree with Mr. Newt that it’s not the function of the executive branch to spoon-feed the hostile, lazy, anonymice-quoting Washington press corps at a daily briefing in the White House…The daily briefing has devolved into a coup-counting sneer fest, with reporters attempting to score points while eliciting exactly zero useful or newsworthy information. Close it down.”

Couldn’t have said it better, and so I’m reprinting this from PJMedia columnist Michael Walsh.
