CNN a heavy contributor to Trump's earned media

T. Becket Adams, Washington Examiner

Though all of media is obsessed with Trump, few newsrooms have ignored the other 2016 candidates in favor of Trump as much as CNN has, according to Internet Archive data rounded up by the GDELT Project.

The Media’s Republican Primary Analysis is Stuck in 1988

Leon H. Wolf, RedState

If you shake any random tree these days, a pundit who wants to tell you that the Republican primary is over will fall out of it. Alas, this is even true of many long-time conservative and/or Republican pundits. What these alleged experts in the media are missing is the fundamental way the Republican primary electorate has changed since 1988. Or, heck, since 2008.

Press downplays March for Life crowds

T. Becket Adams, Washington Examiner

The media decided over the weekend to only give minimal coverage to the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., which once again attracted large crowds even though this year's march coincided with a blizzard that closed the government and had many fleeing the city by Friday afternoon.

The media's seven worst misquotes of conservatives in 2015

Becket Adams, Washington Examiner

Conservatives took a lot of heat in 2015 for things they didn't say, thanks largely to uncharitable interpretations and downright sloppy reporting. Here are the seven worst examples of the media badly misquoting conservatives last year.

Why Liberal Media Hate Trump

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

His popularity is traceable to the fact that he rejects the moral authority of the media, breaks their commandments, and mocks their condemnations. His contempt for the norms of Political Correctness is daily on display. And that large slice of America that detests a media whose public approval now rivals that of Congress, relishes this defiance. The last thing these folks want Trump to do is to apologize to the press.

Blaming White Americans First

Erick Erickson, Erickontheradio.com

There is an interesting trend worth noting. In the face of tragedy, the political left always blames rational Americans first — not crazies, not terrorists, but rational Americans with whom they have political disagreements, who tend to be white, Christian, and Republican.

TV networks hold conference call to discuss Trump treatment

Hadas Gold, Politico

Representatives from several television networks held a conference call on Monday to discuss Donald Trump's campaign treatment of the press. Representatives from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CNN discussed how embeds and reporters from outlets are being treated, including being pushed into media "pens." The Washington Post was first to report on the conference call.

The Ben Carson Flaps

Thomas Sowell, American Spectator

What has been far more disturbing than anything Ben Carson has said or done has been the media’s search-and-destroy mission against the renowned brain surgeon. The utter irrelevance of the issues raised by the media, at a time when the country faces monumental challenges at home and overseas, makes the media hype grotesque. It tells us more about the media than about Dr. Carson.

One Halloween Horror Story the Establishment Media Refused to Air

We know horror sells; AMC's zombie hour, "The Walking Dead," is TV's most-watched drama, but when it comes to the truth about the serial killing of America’s abortion culture, well the networks get a little squeamish it seems. We urge you to use the social media hashtag #AbortionHorrors to demand the media cover the horror story of abortionist Dr. Michael Roth, and the “14 containers of human tissue" found in his car.

Enough with the Roanoke Shooting Coverage Already

Leon Wolf, RedState

The media’s treatment of this story has long since passed honest respect for the untimely passing of two young people and wandered into obvious sermonizing on the evils of guns. What’s happening now isn’t news coverage; it’s ghoulish capitalizing on a tragedy for ratings and politics.

Why Trump Is Still Leading And Ted Cruz Rose After The Fox Debate

What the establishment media doesn’t seem to get and the Republican establishment fears beyond anything else, including the election of Hillary Clinton as President, is that those voters who support Donald Trump and Ted Cruz understand that the Republican establishment is the problem.

Don't Be Fooled By Charlie Hebdo Reaction: Media Are Cowards

Mark Hemingway, Weekly Standard

Many journalists have long been aware of these threats, and have said nothing. And of those who have spoken up about Muslim terror, far too many have said things that in light of today's tragedy are absolutely damning.

Media Hoping for Estab.–Tea Party Civil War

Jim Geraghty, National Review Online

It's no surprise when most GOP incumbents survive their primaries; incumbency provides big advantages. Any cycle where R's elect Ben Sasse, Joni Ernst, & Cory Gardner to the Senate, & manage to knock off the House maj. leader, is a great year for the Tea Party agenda.

For the Media, Climate of Hate Always on the Right

Clarice Feldman, American Thinker

The media, universities, & other centers of left-wing indoctrination are generally losing more of their power to influence public opinion & debate in the broader arena & political outcomes. Despite the ridiculous anti-Palin “climate of hate” narrative, a pro-gun R. won Giffords’ former Cong.

Obama’s Culture of Lies Now Infects Secret Service

We think the White House fence jumper incident reveals much more about the Obama administration’s culture of lies, lawlessness and corruption, than it does about the failures of security at the White House.

Media Frenzies Over Unsourced Gossip to Trash Palins

John Nolte, Breitbart

Over a private family matter based on an un-sourced, un-confirmed item in a local gossip blog, the media is relentless. Over Benghazi and the IRS, crickets. 

Walker: Media Looking at Campaign Probe Backwards

Mario Trujillo, The Hill

Gov. Scott Walker (R) insisted that the criminal investigation against him has already been dismissed. Prosecutors accuse Walker and his aides of a concerted effort to sidestep campaign finance laws and illegally coordinating with outside groups.

Why John Kasich is the Media's Favorite GOP Governor

Jason Hart, The Federalist

Ohio Governor John Kasich has found popularity with the legacy press the only way a Republican can, by expanding government and questioning the morals of anyone who does not.

REID WANTS CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO LIMIT POLITICAL SPEECH

Ken Klukowski, Breitbart

Harry Reid announced the Sen. Judiciary Comm. will hold a hearing on June 3 on amending the Constitution to limit political speech. If ultimately adopted, it would prohibit political speech of citizens and citizen groups such as the NRA.

WND Staff

A prominent conservative strategist is taking strong exception to the perception that the tea-party movement is losing ground among voters. Richard Viguerie, author of “Takeover,” is urging activists to contact media and refute the idea that the GOP establishment has silenced the tea party.
