Media-Born FOIA Requests Rise Dramatically as MSM Goes After POTUS

This is what “journalism” is these days…and it’s frankly a bit disturbing.

There has been no doubt in the minds of America that the mainstream media is out to get President Donald Trump, but there has been little in the way of hard evidence to back up those claims.

Sure, the “news” media on television is blatant enough for us to simply accept their biases.  Reports have indicated that nearly 90% of all mainstream coverage of President Trump is negative – a fact that the media defends with circular logic, insinuating that, if Trump didn’t make so many mistake then there wouldn’t be such negativity.

It’s a bit like a dog chasing its tail, at this point isn’t it?

But now there’s another metric by which we can measure the media’s interest in ousting a sitting President:  The sheer amount of requests that they’ve made under the Freedom of Information Act.

The number of Freedom of Information Act requests the Environmental Protection Agency received from mainstream outlets such as the New York Times and Washington Post spiked immediately after Republican President Donald Trump took office, according to a Free Beacon analysis of FOIA requests by the media from 2013 to the present.

The figures, obtained through the government’s FOIA online database, reveal a clear increase in requests for information from the agency once Trump was elected president.

The New York Times, for example, made just 13 FOIA requests during the four years of Obama’s second term, sending 3 in 2013, 1 in 2014, 7 in 2015, and 2 in 2016. The number of FOIA requests the Times sent for Obama’s entire second term was nearly quadrupled in the first year of Trump’s presidency alone, when the Times sent 59 FOIA requests to the EPA.

Just how big was the jump?

Reporters at the Times have made 100 FOIA requests since Trump took office just over two years ago, a 669 percent increase of the number of FOIA requests it made during the four years of Obama’s second term.

Again, we will likely hear circular logic from the left side of American politics, blaming the media’s manufactured “crisis in the White House” for their sudden interest in government transparency.

Save conservative media!

She actually said these words…

Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders (VT) said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) would play a big role in his administration if he was elected president. Thankfully, it looks like Bernie will once again fall short of the Democrat Party nomination. America dodged a bullet, right there. AOC continues to show the nation she has no business holding elected office, each time she opens her mouth. As you’d expect, Tuesday was no different.

Funeral Homes In Wuhan Are Cremating Coronavirus Victims Alive, Says New Report

Locals have apparently heard the screams…

There’s most likely zero chance that China is accurately reporting the number of people infected with coronavirus in their country. The death toll is probably astronomical, at this point. If this new report is accurate, it should make even most far-left liberals wonder why the communist regime has been added to the United Nations Human Rights Council. From Breitbart: Locals in Wuhan, where the Chinese coronavirus pandemic originated, have heard screams coming from funeral home furnaces, and some treated in hospitals say they saw workers put living coronavirus patients in body bags, Radio Free Asia (RFA) reported on Monday. RFA noted that it could not independently verify that the Chinese Communist Party was burning coronavirus patients alive, nor has the Communist Party confirmed or denied the rumors. Yet the rumors persist that, to make room for new patients in Wuhan’s overcrowded hospitals, medical staff chose older patients less likely to survive the infection and shipped them to incinerators while they were still alive and conscious. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DU5Vu7XBpzg&feature=emb_logo When the funeral homes opened to distributed ashes two weekends ago, witnesses estimated that some funeral homes were distributing as many as 5,000 sets of remains a day. Estimates as to the number of sets of remains distributed last week in Wuhan range from 30,000 to 46,000 people.
