Andrew Klavan Destroys Members of the Press for Coming to the Defense of CNN’s Jim Acosta

Nailed it.

Earlier this week, CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta got into a massive blow-up with President Trump during a press conference, an event that showcased everything that’s wrong with the mainstream media in modern America.

The Daily Wire’s Andrew Klavan featured a segment on his podcast Thursday taking other members of the mainstream media to task for coming to Acosta’s defense and upholding his unprofessional behavior.

“Acosta is a buffoon, and he’s kind of a thug, he’s kind of a jerk,” said Klavan. “What he did to [the White House intern] was part of his jerkiness. But I’m not gonna accuse him of assaulting a female, I think we’ve gone too far with this stuff. When you’re working in the bigs, things get a little bit rough. But Acosta was totally out of line.”

Klavan criticized Acosta for trying to insert his own opinion on Trump, saying, “His opinion matters exactly zero percent” and that it was not the CNN reporter’s job to correct the president.

“In other words, Jim Acosta is a bad version of bad journalism that the Left has been elevating all this time,” he said. “Jim Acosta’s entitled to his opinion, I just don’t want to hear it, and I don’t know why we should.”

“Jake Tapper, his dainty shock that a reporter should get the boot the way Acosta got the boot is not in keeping with the reaction of the press corps to Barack Obama,” Klavan pointed out. “Remember Saint Barack Obama, the savior of our nation? Who treated someone shouting rude questions at him like this, had him thrown out. But the incredible part is the reaction of the press! What you hear in the background is the press reacting to President Obama throwing out a rude questioner – the press corps, chants ‘Obama! Obama!’ Are you freaking kidding me? Member’s of the press, this is why we hate you.”

Klavan hit this one out of the park. A reporter’s job is not to correct the president, but to ask hardball questions that ascertain facts that can be presented to the viewing audience. Viewers are to take that information and make up their own minds.

Instead, modern mainstream media, which at times seems to function more like a propaganda arm of the left than a free press, shoves it’s own interpretation of the facts down the throats of viewers, spoon feeding them a liberal worldview.

Hopefully, one day, we’ll see a return to objective journalism.

Investigation Into Origin Of FBI Russia Probe Expanding Based on ‘New Evidence’

Published

on

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the FBI’s Russia probe has reportedly uncovered “new evidence” that is leading to an expansion of efforts to look into the matter. The evidence was apparently unearthed during a trip Durham took with Attorney General William Barr to Italy. Here are more details from TheBlaze: Sources told Fox News that Durham is now “very interested” in talking to former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, two of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics who served in the Obama administration. Barr and Durham traveled to Italy on extremely short notice, according to the Daily Beast. Once at the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Barr requested “a conference room to meet high-level Italian security agents where he could be sure no one was listening in.” Inside that conference room, Barr and Durham reportedly listened a taped deposition from Joseph Mifsud, an Italian Ministry of Justice source told the Daily Beast. Mifsud is the professor who allegedly told Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos that he had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. The reason this is so significant is because Papadopoulos spoke with Fox News where he suggested that Mifsud contacted him “as part of a setup orchestrated by intelligence agencies.” “So clearly, there was some sort of global or at least European radar on me while I was living in London and as soon as I was joining the Trump campaign — which not even the media knew at the time — I’m being introduced to Joseph Mifsud, in Rome, at a school that trains the CIA and the FBI. So, why I was introduced to Joseph Mifsud, and why this company introduced me to Joseph Mifsud, now that we know they’re connected to MI6 and the FBI, makes things even more suspicious…

New Survey Finds One-Third Of American Jews Hid Religion For Fear Of Anti-Semitism

Published

on

A new survey has discovered that one-third of American Jews have found ways to hide their religion — not wearing clothing or items that would identify them as Jewish — out of fear they would be victims of anti-Semitism. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: In addition to finding that many fear the consequences of openly showing Jewish identity, the survey found almost 90% of respondents believe anti-Semitism is a problem in America, with over 80% saying it has increased in the past five years. The survey, released Wednesday and conducted by the American Jewish Committee, an advocacy group for Jews in the United States, found that worries about anti-Semitism’s rise in recent years was consistently high among all Jewish denominations, including the ultra-Orthodox, modern Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform. Twenty-five percent of Americans Jews said they sometimes “avoid certain places, events, or situations” out of safety concerns, and over 30% said they have refrained from “wearing, carrying, or displaying things that might help people identify them as Jews.” And while one-third said Jewish institutions with which they are affiliated have suffered anti-Semitic attacks or threats, few victims of anti-Semitic incidents report them to the police. As for ascribing blame, American Jews say the Republican Party is more responsible than the Democratic Party for the current state of anti-Semitism in the U.S., and over 70% disapproved of President Trump’s handling of anti-Semitism. Over 80% of respondents said the extreme political Right and, separately, extremism in the name of Islam threaten American Jews, while 64% said the same of the extreme political Left. Another interesting finding from the survey is that American Jews are also more inclined to see negative remarks or actions against Israel as being anti-Semitic. A whopping 84 percent believed the statement “Israel has no right to…
