Reporter Brenda Battel, who forgot to hang up before disparaging John James, has been fired



The media is loaded with leftists. We’ve known this for a while and we’ve done our best to expose them for it. Sometimes, we simply have to sit back and wait for them to expose themselves.

Brenda Battel, formerly a reporter for the Huron Daily Tribune, was calling Senate candidate John James’ campaign to set up a post-election interview. She left a message on the answering service and thought she’d hung up. She hadn’t.

Instead, she expressed her feelings. The campaign released the audio. Upon hearing it, editor Kate Hessling fired Battel.

My Take

Two things. First, reporters should be as unbiased as possible. That means if they have strong feelings about a candidate one way or the other, they should recuse themselves. Second, be sure to hang up before talking **** about someone.

Update: To Battel’s credit, she took responsibility for her actions and apologized on Twitter. It would have been easy to be bitter and lash out at the campaign for releasing the audio or at her former bosses for letting her go over the mistake. Instead, she did the right thing.

    Clearly the love child of fat, ugly, and bad skin…

      The author of this article said what needs to be said. There is no need to make negative statements about people who are not blessed w beauty pageant looks and skin. Really, all this sort of a comment serves is to make me feel sympathetic towards her.

      I think the key think the author wrote is that if reporters cannot keep open minds and report from that perspective they should recuse themselves or be open to the risk of being considered and called FAKE news.

Anthony Derlunas, who yelled ‘Heil Hitler, Heil Trump,’ is a Trump-hating leftist



Anthony Derlunas who yelled Heil Hitler Heil Trump is a Trump-hating leftist

Mainstream media went to great extremes to make people believe Anthony Derlunas is a Trump supporter who was spreading his antisemitic message because he’s a Republican voter. When it was revealed he yelled. “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump,” during a performance of Fiddler on the Roof because he was triggered and actually hated Trump, mainstream media suddenly went silent on the story.

That’s what happens when a leftist narrative is broken. It gets buried, distorted, or outright lied about by the press. They love their narratives. They hate anything that proves their narratives wrong.

Moonbattery The MSM’s Anthony Derlunas Hate Hoax hyperpartisan “mainstream” media has never been more dishonest than since the horrific shootings at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, as it attempts incongruously yet determinedly to tie anti-Semitism around Donald Trump’s neck. Flawed reporting reached hate hoax levels in light of a moonbat named Anthony Derlunas screaming “Heil Hitler! Heil Trump!” at a Baltimore performance of Fiddler on the Roof. Since it is hard to find anything but moonbattery elsewhere, we turn to One America for the story.

President Trump reacts to Jim Acosta’s press pass decision: ‘Not a big deal’



President Trump reacts to Jim Acostas press pass decision Not a big deal

He’s right. This isn’t a big deal. CNN’s Jim Acosta should never have had his hard pass revoked in the first place, either. That made it a bigger deal than it really ought to be. But it happened and now a temporary order has been placed by a judge.

What does this mean for future press conferences? A lot. What does it mean for the 1st Amendment? Not so much. It’s a blow to the President and a win for the free press, but this won’t be an issue that will ever come up again.

It shouldn’t have come up in the first place.

Some are asking why the White House needs to publish rules of decorum for the press when they weren’t needed before. That’s just it. They weren’t needed before. This is a different President, but it’s also a different press.

Luis Cobos-Cenobio, the star of the Arkansas dashcam shootout, is an illegal immigrant



Luis Cobos-Cenobio the star of the Arkansas dash cam shootout is an illegal immigrant

It’s an odd headline. The lede in this story should the shocking dashcam footage showing suspect Luis Cobos-Cenobio firing on police who were trying to pull him over. Unfortunately, immigration status is either buried or ignored altogether by mainstream media, so we thought it was necessary to point out up front that the man who allegedly tried to shoot and kill police officers is an illegal immigrant.

You can read the details at Fox News, one of the only outlets I’ve found so far that mentions his immigration status:

Dashcam video shows moment illegal immigrant suspect opens fire on Arkansas police officer has been jailed on $500,000 bond, and has had a detainer placed on him by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency spokesperson confirmed to Fox News.

Cobos-Cenobio has been charged with four counts of attempted capital murder, committing a terroristic act, fleeing, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to police.

If he is convicted on any or all of these charges, he’s going to jail for a long time. There’s no way to know at this point how many Americans he’s harmed in the past. Sadly, as a criminal illegal immigrant, there’s no reason for him to be here in the first place.

Mainstream media doesn’t want you to know that part of the story, though. Some went so far as to avoid the topic altogether.

For example, this article from ABC News is nearly 400-words in length and never even hints at his immigration status. Many stories simply noted as deep into the article as possible that he had a “federal hold” or “detainer request” without indicating that almost certainly means he’s here illegally.

Mainstream media is desperate to bury or cover up anything that pertains to illegal immigrants. This story, with its amazing and terrifying video, was too “good” for them to pass up. That didn’t stop them from hiding his immigration status.
