MJA, IOTWReport • Sun 2018 Sep 2, 1:11pm

AT: The Village Voice, the first alternative weekly newspaper that began publishing in 1955, will no longer be posting any new stories.

The paper stopped publishing a print edition a year ago, only being available online. Owner Peter Barbey announced to the staff yesterday that “business realities” were forcing him to close shop completely.…

…Henceforth, all practicing journalists in the United States must fill out a required Form for Transparent Journalism and file with the U.S. Office of Journalism that the Trump Administration has now established by executive order within the Department of Justice, retroactive to April 1, 2018. It is known informally as “The Hannity Rule.”…

CNN …gathered a panel of conservative Christian women who voted for President Donald Trump to watch porn star Stormy Daniels’ “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday night. …

“You can throw all that stuff up in our faces as many times as you want,” Dr. Lynette Bryant said, “but that means that we’ll work harder for Trump. Is that not so, ladies?”

“That’s correct,” replied Sylvia Guzman. “This is the media defining the narrative. The people — we, the people — are ready to define the narrative. And it’s not about tawdry sexual peccadilloes.”…

…This sparked a lively discussion on Twitter, with over two thousand commenters asking where they could buy a chainsaw bayonet, or proposing other useful attachments, such as, a pencil sharpener, a pizzawheel, a banana named "apple," and Kevin Spacey's head for converting your firearm into a sexual assault rifle.…

Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” Randall Stephenson, the chairman and CEO of AT&T made an appearance with current Time Warner chairman and CEO Jeff Bewkes to promote the merger of AT&T and Time Warner.

Days after Katie Couric apologetically admitted misrepresenting pro-gun voices via the insertion of a pause in Under the Gun, director Stephanie Soechtig took a different tack and said she stands by the pause.

In fact, Soechtig suggested the pause is only getting coverage because the NRA fixated on it.…

Earlier this morning, I reported on the bloody rampage at a railway station in Munich by a Muslim screaming “Allahu akbar.” This is undeniably an Islamic attack. Well, not for CNN.

They have scrubbed all reference to the jihad murderers motive and mission. Despite the lack of evidence, CNN speculates that the murderer might have mental problems.…

Rolling Stone Magazine beclowned themselves royally, didn’t they?

I’m not sure if we can blame it entirely on the fact that a music industry magazine attempted to pass itself off as a hard-hitting news source. Truth is, all of investigative journalism has been corrupted. So, really? Is Rolling Stone to blame or the entire state of Tabloid Journalism in the Age of Obama? …

“Are these really the questions I was called here to answer?” demanded Callahan. “I called you out for putting ‘blah blah blah blah blah’ on your notepad and now you’re asking me questions like this? Really? Are we talking about this now?

“OK, how about you ask a very serious and respectful question instead of asking a little childish question?”

The committee leader told Callahan he had just asked him about climate change, and he now wanted to give someone else a chance to respond.

“If you’re not going to let me I’m going ask you to leave. That’s two strikes.”

Callahan laughed and said, “Who do you think you are?”

Callahan was then told to leave the meeting.

The state-run media's unabashed acceptance of its self-appointed role as "progressive" advocate is nightmarishly breathtaking to behold.

In 1998 1988 there was no internet, there was no Drudge. No Fox News and Rush Limbaugh would only become national in August of that year and not the force of nature he is today.

Picture for a second if there were people attending rallies, writing articles, analyzing polls, recording what is actually being said and putting that information out to the entire world. If that was taking place in 1988 do you think for one moment the mask on the actual state of the Dukakis campaign would not have been torn off long before election day?

This is the state that we are in now. The left is playing the same function as they did that year, trying their best to create the illusion of a winning campaign for Obama when none exists, but today while the MSM attempts to hide the unpleasant realities from liberal, an Army of Davids behind keyboards & cameras are spreading the word (That would be a great title for a book). …

Jeffrey Lord at American Spectator • Tue 2012 Apr 10, 12:03pmFormer Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee took his first phone call of his new talk radio call-in show yesterday. From "Mike in San Francisco." Remember: the show is being positioned by the Cumulus Media Network as the conservative show with "more conversation, less confrontation." Or, as it is certainly being pushed in the anti-Rush Limbaugh media, the show for moderate Republicans that will Take Rush Out. RINO Radio, as we noted here last week. … In fact, "Mike from San Francisco" turned out after some digging to be one Mike McVay, the senior vice president of programming for… wait for it… the Cumulus Media Network. None of which was acknowledged on the air by either "Mike from San Francisco" or, more to the point, Mike Huckabee. … the entire venture has taken onto itself the image that it is about far more than just a talk radio show. It is about replacing Reagan conservatism — represented here by Rush Limbaugh — with RINO Radio. …
