President Trump is known for his sharp retorts to belligerent journalists. His mini-arguments with the likes of Jim Acosta are well-documented because the vast majority of the time he makes them look like the fools they are. But it was responses like the President had for Huffington Post White House correspondent S.V. Dáte that really set him apart from every President we’ve had in the modern era.
HuffPo Reporter @SVDate "Mr. President, after three and a half years, do you regret at all, all the lying you've done to the American people?"
TRUMP: "Who is that?"

Questions like these do not deserve a response which is why the President didn’t give him one. What makes the activist-journalist even more of an embarrassment to himself, his publication, and his profession is that he was actually proud of being shunned by the President of the United States.

Throughout our history, journalists have been biased. Anyone who believes this is a new phenomenon is simply wrong. But what’s different now and was apparent during the last administration as well is that they no longer pretend to be unbiased. They may claim to be, but they don’t act like it. Everyone is biased. It’s part of human nature. But the self-control that was once expected of those who are supposed to be our constitutionally protected truth-seekers for the American people is completely gone.
The reality is this: President Trump has neither the time nor the inclination to waste a single syllable on activist journalists. Those who claim to be unbiased yet act like this are even more dishonest than Democrats on Capitol Hill.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.

Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time.
