One of Facebook’s official arbiters in the battle against ‘fake news’ is on the brink of financial collapse.

The site, which long-served as the internet’s best source for debunking myth and urban legend started an online fundraising campaign with GoFundMe earlier this week, with the hope of raising $500,000.

James O’Keefe and Project Veritas dropped the latest video in the group’s project to expose bias in the mainstream media.

In this video, CNN supervising producer John Bonifield, who we met in the first video of this series, told an undercover PV journalist that at CNN there is “an automatic bias” against...

When Joy Reid and her merry band of liberals sink their teeth into something, it’s hard to tear them away.

Last month, we entertained you with this item about Reid & Co. mentioning “Russia” 56 times in one hour.

There has been a lot of attention in the past couple of days to the statistical disconnect between what is of importance to the media versus what is important to the public.

Not surprisingly, the media is all Russia, Russia, Russia. The public not so much.

The competition among major media to feed the Russia-mania news cycle beast leads to shoddy (at best) reporting.

We saw that yesterday, when the Washington Post ran a scoop about Trump having an “undisclosed hour-long meeting with Putin at G-20 Summit.”

Give Joe Scarborough credit. Just when we were getting bored with all the Trump/Nazi analogies, Joe has come up with a new one. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough compared Trump press secretary Sean Spicer to an old Soviet spokesman and propagandist.

Scarborough’s beef was that Spicer had supposedly said that the meeting of...

The last post I wrote about the Donald Trump Jr. meeting was last Thursday, Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer: “there’s something very unusual about this whole thing”.

Subsequent to that post, NBC News broke the story that there were additional people at the meeting than had been disclosed previously. Nonetheless, I think...

The Washington Post has fallen almost as far as CNN. In a news analysis article, the paper tries to shift blame for James Hodgkinson’s attempt to murder Republican congressmen on conservative talk radio.

It’s an established fact that Hodgkinson was a Bernie-loving, anti-Trump, Rachel Maddow “super fan,” so wouldn’t it make more...

The BBC is not known for its lack of bias, but this one really takes the cake.  They had it right that three Palestinians were killed, but forgot to mention they had attacked three Israeli police officers, killing one.
