Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men. They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak. The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us? ~ Psalm 12:1-4

According to Sharyl Attkisson, when it comes to politics and social issues there really is no such thing as ‘Journalism’. There’s only advocacy and bias for one party or the other, one person or the other and one position or the other; on almost every issue.

CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS, the NYT, the WAPO, and dozens of other print and digital ‘news’ outlets are 100% in the tank for any Liberal Democrat or any Liberal point of view.

And it all happened in less than 50 years… Shame!

On the other side you have Fox, a couple of smaller local newspapers, sometimes the Wall St. Journal, plus Rush Limbaugh and others. The idea that just plain unbiased Journalism exists is ludicrous and absurd.

None of the Liberal outlets can even report on a weather event like a hurricane for goodness’ sake, without injecting Liberal politics into it in the form of ‘climate change’ theories. Thankfully, we have a treasured gem by the name of Sharyl Attkisson to educate us accordingly on the three tenets of ‘he said, she said, and then there’s the Truth!’

As in:

We the media have “fact-checked” President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet – and he’s certainly given us plenty to write about. That’s probably why it’s so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and “lies.”

What’s worse, we defend ourselves by trying to convince the public that our mistakes are actually a virtue because we (sometimes) correct them. Or we blame Trump for why we’re getting so much wrong. It’s a little bit like a police officer taking someone to jail for DUI, then driving home drunk himself: he may be correct to arrest the suspect, but he should certainly know better than to commit the same violation.

So since nobody else has compiled an updated, extensive list of this kind, here are 78 notable mistakes and missteps in Major Media reporting on Donald Trump…[end]

From which she goes on to her complete list of 78 (the link to which is available down below) from which yours truly will pull just a sample of two or three (or four!) to illustrate what she is describing…


Alexandr Solzhenitsyn…

#27 August 31 2017: NBC News’ Ken Dilanian and Carol Lee reported that a Trump official’s notes about a meeting with a Russian lawyer included the word “donation,” as if there were serious discussions about campaign contributions. Later on, NBC corrected the report to reflect that the word “donation” didn’t appear, but still claimed the word “donor” did. Later, Politico reported that the word “donor” wasn’t in the notes, either.

#38 January 12 2018: Mediaite’s Lawrence Bonk, CNN’s Sophie Tatum, the Guardian, BBC, US News and World Report, Reuters and Buzzfeed’s Adolfo Flores reported a “bombshell”— that President Trump had backed down from his famous demand for a wall along the entire Southern border. However, Trump said the very same thing in February 2016 on MSNBC, on Dec. 2, 2015, in the National Journal, in October 2015 during the CNBC Republican Primary debate, and on Aug. 20, 2015, on FOX Business’ Mornings with Maria.

#67 January 18 2019: The Buzzfeed exclusive with anonymous sources implicating Trump in potentially criminal behavior (that Democrats and pundits said would be the nail in Trump’s impeachment coffin) is refuted in a rare rebuke from Special Counsel Mueller’s office. Buzzfeed stands by its reporting.

~ “Buzzfeed’s description of statements to the special counsel’s office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony are not accurate,” said the spokesman, Peter Carr. ~  

#77 May 17 2017: In Fortune, an article by Allan Licthman on Trump’s “disturbingly deep ties to Russia” was later altered with the following correction:

~ Correction: An earlier version of this article misstated that the New York Attorney General joined in a 2015 racketeering civil case against Bayrock, Felix Stater, and Tevfik Arif, among others. The New York Attorney General did not intervene. Also, the article incorrectly stated that Stater was a shareholder of Bayrock. He was not. The article has been updated. ~


No real surprises here, though I have no doubt whatsoever, that if she cared to spend another hour or two digging, Ms. Attkisson could come up with another 50-100 howlers. Nevertheless, she is to be commended for these stunning and horrific examples of media bias.

Many of us have long suspected that the full intent of certain news media outlets is to fully and completely manipulate the truth and obfuscate the facts to gain support for their Leftist agenda.

It is NOT incompetence, as these stories are reviewed by a minimum of 2 editors (likely 3 or more in the large outlets from major cities); dyed-in-the-wool liberals who never stop acting like the Leftist radicals they actually are.

The list is a stunning example of media bias and collusion. Sad we must work so hard to discover the truth in the reports we read. Thanks to Sharyl Attkisson however, the integrity of Truth remains the mainstay in exposing the manipulators of prevarication.

Of which these 78 examples prove the point exactly. So on a lighter note – Enjoy!

For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted. ~ Psalm 12:5-8
