White House suspends Jim Acosta’s press pass

Published

CNN’s Jim Acosta has had his press pass suspended “until further notice” by the White House.

Acosta made himself the center of attention at the post-election presidential press conference.

Jim Acosta really is an idiot

https://noqreport.com/2018/11/07/jim-acosta-really-idiot/I’m not a fan of the President going after the press all the time. That’s not to say he’s not justified based upon their treatment of him, but it simply doesn’t behoove him or the nation when he brings it up all the time. When they strike first and prove his point, how he reacts to them is definitely acceptable.

CNN’s Jim Acosta is an idiot. Every time he has the mic it’s a an opportunity for the narcissist to say, “Look at me, I’m defiant, I’m the Resistance!” He did it again today and the President handled it well.

My Take

This is a good thing for Jim “Look at Me” Acosta. That’s not to say it’s a bad move by the White House, but Acosta is trying to build a career as a resistance leader, not a journalist. For now, he gets his wish. The biggest loser is CNN, but who cares?

Are things really as bad as the media would have us believe?

Are things really as bad as the media would have us believe

The short answer is, “No.”

The longer answer was tackled by Reason.com editor-in-chief Katherine Mangu-Ward and John Stossel. Fear sells when it comes to mainstream media and progressive politics. They need a populace who believes things are getting worse in order to promote their agenda of authoritarian policies that will allegedly make things better.

“Fearmongering” is often invoked by the left to condemn the right, but in reality the left have been so adept at fearmongering that we have an entire generation who believe the world is going to end if we keep eating meat. They believe the economy is bad even though every economic indicator is great. They believe we need to be told how to live by our government instead of being allowed to live freely in an open and responsible society.

Whenever you’re told by the mainstream media how unhappy you are, question it. They don’t know. They have an agenda to push and a narrative to sell. Otherwise, they’d report the truth that things aren’t bad and are getting better.

Does the leftist media rely on hateclicks?

Does the leftist media rely on hateclicks

Almost every sector in the economy seems to be doing well, except one: media. Many failed media organizations, slightly outside of the traditional mainstream established corporate media are struggling to pay the bills. Leftist outlets like The Weekly Standard and Think Progress have shut down due to the struggle. Buzzfeed has scaled back operations. Even ESPN has cut fat. Vox Media, a corporate outlet backed by NBC Universal, unsuccessfully went after Steven Crowder because of the success of independent media. The barrier to entries in media are low as technology increasingly reduces the intercessors between information and consumers of information. With an increasing number of intermediaries, people do not need to get their information from CNN or the NY Times.

A second premise I must insert is the prominence of leftist media to publish content that seems intentionally unpopular. There are several examples to pull from. The leftist outlets that trashed Dave Chappelle’s Sticks and Stones were ratioed hard on Twitter. Going after a comedy legend is perhaps one of the most benign examples. Social justice video clickbait farm, Now This, recently published a language policing video on “you guys” being politically incorrect and exclusive. The video was lampooned by the internet, but that video got views. The trash reviews on Sticks and Stones got clicks and were captured aggregated by Rotten Tomatoes. Clicks pay the bills; that’s why it’s called clickbait. But Buzzfeed’s listicles require so little talent anyone could produce them. The clickbait game has evolved, and out of this evolution is Hateclicks, a headline so universally despised outside the left side of the Overton Window that people click, thus providing the ad revenue to maintain these websites. It’s a bold strategy.

But to play devil’s advocate, the leftist media in incredibly lacking in the area of self-awareness. Pink News, a gay outlet, produced a video promoting pederasty, which was later removed. The removal of this video indicates it wasn’t about the hateclicks it undoubtedly received. Instead, this video was a bit of a Freudian slip. This Rainbow Jihad outlet refused to check themselves before they wrecked themselves on social media promoting pederasty. This wasn’t a drunken take, this was a video production. This wasn’t a contrarian opinion, this was groundwork for shaping society. The leftist media has taken an extremely friendly stance towards pedophilia, and after redefining gender to their own preferences, the next frontier seems to be pedophilia.

These opposing views can be married into how we observe the leftist media. For even Bernie Sanders realized his campaign for socialism could only survive by accepting conventional market forces. Such stunning lack of self-awareness, in the media, can be rewarded with revenue. That revenue serves as dopamine as the Leftist media sprints into the abyss of socialism and debauchery. It’s important to note that in their isolated urbanized communities, these elites think Twitter is real life. However, they are unmoved by being ratioed with rare exceptions.

Final Thoughts

Hateclicks are an increasingly vital revenue tactic for the Leftist media and it doesn’t seem to be going obsolete any time soon, as the leftist media is more interested in pushing an agenda rather than being popular to us lesser folks online. The amount of people who want to hear this propaganda is a different question. I do not make any recommendations to resist clicking and giving these companies ad revenue. It’s good to know what their saying when they strawman themselves. Beside, many of these organizations are unionizing which will ultimately hurt them, as the case with Think Progress.

The leftist media is, in many ways, suffocating itself out of existence, and hateclicks are merely unicorn blood delaying their demise.

As NY Times debunks its own Kavanaugh ‘bombshell,’ don’t expect Democrats to apologize

As NY Times debunks its own Kavanaugh bombshell dont expect Democrats to apologize

At least five Democratic candidates for president called for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s impeachment after the NY Times ran a story about an uncorroborated allegation that “someone” at a party he was allegedly at while attending Yale may have done something to someone. Seriously, that’s the gist of the story. There are confusing details about genitalia being exposed by someone who may or may not have been Kavanaugh, though apparently nobody has any recollection of the incident… including the accuser.

Of course, the NY Times didn’t mention that part in their original story. They issued a correction today, but at this point the damage has been done. The story was so ridiculous that I vowed we wouldn’t cover it. Now that the story is no longer about the weak allegations and is instead about the propagandized actions of the NY Times and the unhinged responses by Democrats, I’ll allow this story to cover just a bit of it. Being editor has its perks.

After a Sunday full of raging emotional responses from the left and calls for impeachment by Democrats, the NY Times finally issued their correction. It’s essentially a complete debunking, but a story with this much political juice would never be retracted by the leftist publication, so this correction is the best we’ll get.

According to Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist:

More importantly than the procedural issue, however, is that several friends of the alleged victim in question say she has zero recollection of such incident.

That salient detail was omitted by the reporters.

A correction was added to the end of the article late Sunday night, after a full day of histrionic media coverage: It reads:

Editors’ Note: Sept. 15, 2019

An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.

This is clever propaganda for the Democrats utilizing a tactic the NY Times has mastered in recent years. They spark a controversy for the sake of controversy and to distract from real issues. The Democrats pounce to score political points. Then, the publication issues a correction that will be seen by 1/100th of the people who read the original article and came to the conclusion that Kavanaugh should be impeached.

By the time news of the correction reaches more people, the Democrats will already have shifted from attacking Kavanaugh as a proxy for President Trump over this issue. At that point, they’ll pretend is was all about the old evidence proving he should never have been nominated or confirmed in the first place. Bravo, NY Times.

Presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Julián Castro, Cory Booker and Pete Buttigieg demonstrated stupidity by falling for the latest false accusation against Brett Kavanaugh. Now that it’s debunked, they should apologize. They won’t.
