Howard Dean and Joe Trippi Create the First Internet-Based Presidential Campaign

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Conservatives took note of how the liberals used the Internet in 2003 to create the first Internet-based presidential campaign. Both Left and Right realized that politics would never be the same again. This is excerpt 42 (of 45) from America’s Right Turn.

Media Sink To New Lows In Their Anti-Kavanaugh Smear Campaign

Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

It is apparently impossible for our media to realize that promulgating nothing more than decades-old hearsay with precisely no corroborating evidence is unbecoming and cruel. It is beyond obvious that the media are willing to throw out any and all standards to defeat Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. It is absolutely soul-crushing and heartbreaking to realize that they are willing to destroy him as a husband and father to achieve that goal. Have they any decency?

Literary Taste Vs. Stormy Daniels

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

It's fascinating when the national media's literary tastemakers make room for the transparently tasteless. Time magazine offered its picks for "The Best New Books to Read Fall 2018," and two ticks down from former first lady Michelle Obama's memoir was "Full Disclosure" by anti-Trump porn star/stripper Stormy Daniels. She "promises to divulge plenty — from her alleged relationship with the President to her much-contested NDA." For the media, good taste won't be back in vogue until a Democrat sits in the White House again.

The Vast Anti-Kavanaugh Conspiracy

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Even as the newspapers and the networks acknowledged this story was unproven junk, they kept reporting it and talking about it, speculating about all the political fallout. Worst of all, they asserted that all this unproven junk would put an "asterisk" on Brett Kavanaugh's record. Only if the asterisk led to this explanation: "During his confirmation, liberals shoved aside all their principles about due process and proving a story before printing it."

For Kavanaugh fight, news media toss their standards in the trash

Editors, Washington Examiner

With a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court on the line and allegations of sexual assault rattling the nation’s capital, the truth really is more important now than on many other occasions. The one thing the media's reports and misleading tweets all have in common is that they cast Kavanaugh in a bad light. This is the greatest indicator yet that many in news media are less interested in facts and more interested in achieving a political end. Curious, considering the truth is supposed to be more important now than ever.

The Politicization of the Kavanaugh Sexual Abuse Allegations Damages #MeToo

Ben Shapiro, CNS News

What should the standard of proof, or even the standard of believability, be? We should all be able to agree that some standard beyond mere belief is required here — and we should all be willing to hear evidence that implicates our favorite political figures. But if we insist on applying a politically motivated double standard in the name of #MeToo, the support for #MeToo will crumble. Politics should not be allowed to override basic human decency. Yet again, that's what's happening.

The Media and Kavanaugh's Kangaroo Court

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The media/Democrat message is that the Senate cannot have a vote until we get to the bottom of this horrible accusation. Is there anyone following this story who doesn't believe they are stalling until after the midterm elections, when they hope to gain one or two seats necessary to defeat Kavanaugh permanently? The calculation is as cold as the timing was transparent. So where are the media blowing that whistle? This does look a lot like the dirty trick that Democrats pulled on then-Supreme Court Justice nominee Clarence Thomas in 1991.
