Jim Acosta Just Had a Very Rough Afternoon in The Rose Garden

Hopefully Jim Acosta will be able to enjoy his long weekend, and perhaps recuperate from where he has had portions of his derrière chewed off today.

Jim Acosta

The hyperbolic, far-from-bucolic landscape of the mainstream media is in flames.  Truly, absolutely, en fuego.

There are so few sources, on television especially, that can be trusted.  We know exactly why this is, and we’ve explained it innumerable times in the past, but that doesn’t mean that our message has great reach.

You see, the mainstream is in control.  If a single, solitary source speaks out against injustice, they can be wholly crushed by the corporately backed giants at networks such as CNN.  These agendas and this bias are undeniable.  Period.

Now what we have to worry about are the self-crazed characters of the dog and pony show we called the “news”, such as Jim Acosta of the aforementioned CNN.  Mr. Acosta had himself an eventful day in the White House Rose Garden today.

President Trump scolded CNN’s Jim Acosta on Friday during the president’s Rose Garden announcement that he is declaring a national emergency on the southern border, telling the reporter he has “an agenda” — before angel moms in attendance confronted the chief CNN White House correspondent.

The clash came as Acosta challenged Trump over what he described as a “disconnect” concerning his description of illegal immigration.

“You are presenting information about what’s happening at the border, calling it an invasion, talking about women with duct tape over their mouths and so on, and yet there is a lot of reporting out there, a lot of crime data out there … that shows border crossings at a near record low,” Acosta said.

Trump fired back, “That’s because of us,” as the CNN reporter attempted to talk over the president.

A tongue lashing from the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces is usually enough excitement for one day for an average person, but Jim Acosta is apparently an overachiever.  Moments later, the reporter found himself in the crosshairs of angel moms who have lost loved ones at the hands of undocumented immigrants.

 

Hopefully Jim Acosta will be able to enjoy his long weekend, and perhaps recuperate from where he has had portions of his derrière chewed off today.

Maybe he’ll even write in his diary about it…

THE NUMBERS ARE IN: Florida has Lowest COVID Rate in the Nation

Well, would you look at that.

If Governor RonDesantis isn’t planning to shove this in everyone’s face for a while, we’d be surprised.

Florida, a state that has been the bane of the liberals’ existence in recent months due to their freedom-first coronavirus precautions, now get to gloat.  And bigly.

In mid-August, Florida was averaging about 25,000 new cases a day, or about 116 for every 100,000 residents. That was the worst rate in the U.S. — and one of the worst in the world. Awash in the hypercontagious Delta variant, the Sunshine State became one of the epicenters of the global pandemic.

During the past two months, however, Florida’s daily average has plummeted by more than 90 percent, to about 1,700 cases, or eight for every 100,000 residents. That’s roughly half of California’s current COVID rate and less than a quarter of Vermont’s. Hawaii (with nine cases for every 100,000 residents) is the only other state in single digits.

DeSantis has been absolutely adamant about allowing Floridians to choose the level of risk that they wish to take as it pertains to COVID-19, and has barred businesses and institutions from enacting vaccine or mask mandates.  This has gained him a great deal of criticism from the liberal left, who have insisted that the Governor is being reckless.

Terry McAuliffe’s Dirty ‘Fake’ News Trick Revealed Ahead of Election

This is simply LUDICROUS.

Published

on

mainstream media

For as much as the Democrats carry on about “fake news”, you’d think that they’d do everything in their power to avoid participating in such nonsense.  But, as we’ve all learned, the left sure does like “projecting”, don’t they?

The latest example of this comes to us from the Virginia governor’s race, where Democrat Terry McAuliffe has been caught red-handed usingvery dirty trick online.

Former Gov. Terry McAuliffe has spent nearly $100,000 advertising “fake news” websites on Facebook during the Virginia gubernatorial campaign, Fox News can reveal.

The Democrat’s advertisements, which have been viewed up to 3.5 million times so far, are hidden on a Facebook page with a similar name to a local news website. The ads link to third-party websites that ostensibly publish local news, but exist to promote Democratic candidates. The websites have been widely described as disinformation and “partisan propaganda.”

So, how exactly does it work?

The page is called “The Download Virginia,” and it was quietly launched by McAuliffe in June. While the name of the page sounds similar to that of a news organization, the page has not published any posts or photos, and only 67 people have “liked” the page (a term Facebook uses to describe followers).

Instead, most voters who have encountered “The Download” have done so through paid advertising. The ads do not appear on the page itself but can be obtained through a Facebook Ad Library Report, a tool used by journalists and researchers. The McAuliffe campaign has spent $471,044 on ads distributed by this page since June. With several ads running at time of publication, that number is likely to rise before election day.

The advertisements generally contain a comment and a link to a mainstream news article that covers the campaign favorably. But sprinkled among the links to legitimate media are seven separate advertisements (and dozens of variations) that promote websites widely considered to be “fake news”.

And it gets worse:

In a July advertisement, The Download writes about McAuliffe’s views on small business. The ad includes a link to an article published by a third party website called The Virginia Dogwood.

The Dogwood presents itself as a local news website, with daily articles about local issues in Virginia, dedicated sections for key topics, and a newsletter to give Virginians “all the news you need.” The Dogwood says on a page describing its publication that it delivers “credible, fact-based reporting.”

The website notes it is owned and operated by Courier Newsroom, which according to the Dogwood, is a “civic media company.” But Courier Newsroom was founded and initially funded by the liberal dark money group ACRONYM. According to the Wall Street Journal, early backers included multibillionaire Democratic donor George Soros, as well as LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman and a group of movie producers. Axios reported yesterday that the “newsroom” has since been acquired by influential Democrat Tara McGowan’s “Good Information Project,” which is backed by many of the same investors.

With less than a week left until the election itself, could this incredibly deceitful tactic’s exposure swing this overwhelmingly tight race?
