U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) was kind of enough to remind everyone that this coming Friday will mark the first anniversary of one of the far-left CNN’s most revealing fake news moments — a fear-mongering headline that declared the “End of the Internet as We Know It” after the FCC repealed the Orwellian-named “Net Neutrality Act.” The official end of former President Obama’s regulatory rules did not actually arrive until June, which means six whole month have passed. Yet a quick look around reveals that the “Internet as we know it” has not reached an “end,” and does not appear to be coming toward an “end.” But let’s forget all the rigmarole around the net neutrality debate, which is meaningless to my overall point. What you had last December was CNN, the lowest rated and least trusted name in news, spending weeks on a propaganda campaign to protect Obama’s legacy, which in turn would hand … [Read more...] about Nolte: One Year Ago CNN Predicted ‘End of the Internet as We Know It’

For now, I’m chalking it up to #FlyingWhilePalestinian,” Muaddi tweeted at the end of a long Twitter rant that was spread out over two threads.Muaddi said his ordeal started when he was making his way back to the U.S. on Sunday, after spending quality time with his family and friends in Morocco.

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio filed a defamation lawsuit seeking $300 million in damages against three news organizations, saying their inaccurate references to his criminal conviction have hurt his chances at possibly running in for the Senate seat that was held by John McCain. The lawsuit, filed in Washington, alleges that CNN, Huffington Post and Rolling Stone acted with malice by publishing statements they knew were not true. In the suit, Arpaio says CNN did not make any effort to correct a statement by anchor Chris Cuomo in a January broadcast that said he was a convicted felon. Arpaio's 2017 criminal contempt of court conviction -- for disobeying a judge's order to stop his immigration patrols -- was a misdemeanor, rather than a felony. The lawsuit also points out a Huffington Post story in November that erroneously said Arpaio had been sent to prison for contempt of court. It says Rolling Stone had corrected an error in a November story that erroneously said Arpaio … [Read more...] about Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio sues CNN, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone
Isaac Stanley-Becker, The Washington Post Published 4:24 am PST, Wednesday, December 12, 2018 Six words turned Marc Lamont Hill into a symbol of the divisive effort to set parameters on acceptable speech about the state of Israel and the rights of Palestinians. In an address last month at the United Nations, Hill called for a "free Palestine from the river to the sea," repeating a phrase - "from the river to the sea" - that has been used by terror groups intent on the destruction of Israel. Two institutions reacted differently to the use of these six words by the academic, activist and pundit. The split reveals how the disagreement over anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism is intensifying on college campuses, at media organizations and within political parties. CNN, where Hill had been a contributor, cut ties with the 39-year-old almost immediately, as conservatives and hard-line advocates of Israel cried foul, and other groups, such as the Anti-Defamation League, also … [Read more...] about CNN fired him for speech some deemed anti-Semitic. But his university says the Constitution protects him.
POLITICS 12/12/2018 03:42 am ET Santorum said it was "an honor even to be considered" for the role – then turned it down anyway. By Lee Moran The search for President Donald Trump’s next apprentice White House chief of staff continues after twice-failed GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum turned down the prospect live on CNN. Speaking with “Outfront” host Erin Burnett on Tuesday night, the former Republican senator for Pennsylvania said it was “an honor even to be considered.” Speculation mounted about Santorum possibly replacing John Kelly after he was seen talking with Trump at Saturday’s Army-Navy football game. It’s not clear whether Trump did in fact officially offer him the role. “I think it’s a great job and I know that there are a lot of good people out there,” Santorum told Burnett, adding that “my family situation really doesn’t allow me to do that right now.” … [Read more...] about Rick Santorum Cites Family As He Rejects White House Chief Of Staff Role Live On CNN
