New York Mayor Has Reporter Removed for Asking a Simple Question

Published

on

Funny how when the Trump White House bars a reporter from an event after she refused to leave the Oval Office and was loud, rude, and relenting in her questions, the media melted down for a week. But when Democrat mayor Bill DeBlasio has a reporter removed from his sight for asking a question he didn’t feel like answering, there’s hardly a peep.

The media is exactly like the left-wing pundits they constantly promote and make excuses for. They’re convinced that they’re the victims of an evil administration who calls them out for their propagandic lies.

What they refuse to acknowledge is that the American people are the ones who lost their trust in them long ago, and Trump has just tapped into that.

They act like Trump is going after journalists in the fashion of a fascist dictator (perhaps because they’re determined to paint literally everything he does as reminiscent of fascist dictators, despite him systematically scaling back the power and expanse of the federal government).

In reality, no President in recent memory has ever been slammed so much by the press, and yet all he does is laugh at them. Where are the journalists in jail, the networks shut down, the laws hindering free speech? What kind of authoritarian just lets the press bash him without responding like this?

Naturally, when it comes to Democrat politicians, there’s a massive double-standard. They have their fair share of run-ins with the press, but the mainstream outlets barely care about that, now don’t they? Obama was literally jailing reporter’s sources and they hardly batted an eye. So much for standing by your colleagues.

The Hill reports:

Kevin Sheehan, a reporter for the New York Post, reportedly approached [New York mayor Bill] de Blasio on Sunday at the Dominican Day Parade in Manhattan and asked for his reaction to a story in the Post about his meetings with lobbyists, according to the Post.

Members of NYPD security then approached the reporter and took him away from the mayor, the Post reported. The reporter was reportedly escorted a half-block away from where he approached de Blasio.

The Post reported over the weekend that de Blasio’s deputy mayors, commissioners and aides had 136 meetings with lobbyists over a three-month period this spring. Lobbyists from the real estate industry “dominated the talks,” the Post reported.

If the purpose of a free press is to hold politicians accountable–which it is–that means holding Trump and de Blasio accountable.

If you have a double-standard when it comes to freedom of the press, than you don’t really care about preserving the First Amendment. You care about preserving your preferred, ideological agenda. And that means you, along with politicians, need to be held accountable as well.

Russia Completely Censors Navalny News After USA Issues Threat

Is Putin hiding Navalny to avoid further condemnation from the US?

Published

on

As Vladimir Putin continues to work up his reputation as the world’s most despicable and despotic leader, it appears as though he does have some jitters when it comes to dealing with the mighty USA. Over the course of the last several weeks, the two superpowers have exchanged a number of insults and threats, centered around any number of issues – all of which are of Putin’s own doing. First, US President Joe Biden went ahead and told the world that he believed Putin to be “a killer” – a statement that reportedly irked Putin to no end.  And then there were the hack attacks against the United States that saw Biden slap a number of hefty sanctions on Moscow. Now, as anti-Putin journalist Alexei Navalny continues a slow and agonizing march toward death at a Russian prison camp hospital, Biden and the US government have warned Putin that his demise could brings a world of pain to the Kremlin. This has pushed Putin to enact a total blackout of news on Navalny’s condition. Russian state TV has imposed a virtual blackout on coverage on Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny amid claims he could die at “any minute” in a prison hospital. The imprisoned 44-year-old, a prominent critic of President Vladimir Putin, has been on hunger strike and there are planned protests in 77 cities as a show of support. The protests on Wednesday will coincide with Vladimir Putin’s key annual state of the nation address to parliament. The Russian Government have said the protests are illegal. Putin and Biden had briefly considered a summit meeting to discuss this latest dissonance, but there is no telling where those negations stand after this latest malfeasance by the Russian government.
