As if anyone needed further evidence that the local newspaper is on borrowed time, the latest report is that Nicole Carroll, a senior newsroom executive at the Arizona Republic for over a decade, is leaving to take the post of Editor-in-Chief of USATODAY, “the nation’s largest circulation newspaper,’ according to the Republic’s own front page coverage of the abandonment.
The reason behind the large circulation claim is the garish, magazine-like publication is given away “free” at hotels across the USA. Or so we thought. The Gannett publication actually reaps mega millions yearly with the distribution, by colluding with hotels to tack the charges onto your bill.
Just a couple of months ago, Arizona State University bragged it had snagged the Arizona Republic’s Publisher Mi-Ai Parrish. She was willing to ditch the newspaper for what is reported to be a much lower salary to take the post of Professor in Media Innovation and Leadership at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Think of that as inculcating leftwingism to the J students.
Parrish left her post as president and publisher of Republic Media, which operates the Arizona Republic, azcentral.com and La Voz as part of the USA Today Network — to join the Cronkite School on Jan. 1. She will “teach, write, speak and collaborate on how to preserve and grow a robust free press in the digital age.” With those abilities, Parrish should have stayed at the newspaper and tried to keep it afloat —- although she was probably all too aware of the futility of that ginormous task.
Firings, buy-outs of long term employees and general mayhem have been the order of the day at the increasingly anorexic newspaper. Cronkite students, using colloquialisms and writing in Charles Schultz’ Snoopy “It was a dark and stormy night” style, are ineffectively filling the gaps.
The Hillary-endorsing newspaper is a contemptible farce, mercifully fading fast. It has shrunken in actual size but uses oversized — oftentimes, half page photos or illustrations — to take up space. Content consists in large part of pre-written pap that bears no resemblance to news. Entertainment and dining are given prominence. More than occasionally the same article will appear a day apart, or even in the same issue, with a few pages separating them, earning it our nickname of The Daily Regurgitation. We also refer to it as The Periódico de la República de Arizona for its unswerving open borders stance and desire to gift American citizenship to those who disregard our laws and sovereignty.
Most egregious of all is its propensity to routinely insult the aging demographic readers, who overwhelming voted for President Trump, a man the newspaper despises. Disreputable RINOs McCain and Flake, both on their way out, are its poster “boys” of Republicanism.
ASU’s journalism students have become the unseasoned glue that holds the disheveled mess together, though their commitment to the First Amendment is questionable. In 2009, after inviting Sheriff Joe Arpaio to participate in a forum, the students in the audience began loudly chanting Bohemian Rhapsody, drowning him out as he attempted to respond.
Do those in charge at the Republic actually expect anyone to take seriously the views of the skewed editorial board, the toady columnists and rude student reporters who disrespect the First Amendment?
Thursday’s edition of the Wall Street Journal carried a cogent editorial, “Peter Thiel’s Warning to the Valley.” The Valley in question was Silicon Valley but the Valley of the Sun would be an apt substitute. The thrust is contained in these few words: “Hostility to half of America isn’t good business—or politics.”
Trump-hating Democrats and the eagerly acquiescing media have launched false shutdown narrative in an attempt to smear Republicans and score points in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections
Thomas Hicks, Jr. has written a superb opinion piece on the government shutdown. It appears in The Hill, and should be required reading for anyone who thinks there’s no difference between political parties — the old saw we’ve all heard from the uninformed.
“Schumer’s shutdown reveals: Democrats will destroy America just to spite Trump,” is not only well-written and fact-filled, but it clearly delineates the differences between the two parties. ‘Hicks captures the essence of the Democrats in the following few words: “Never before in American history has a major political party put the interests of lawbreaking foreign nationals ahead of the interests of law abiding Americans. Yet that is exactly what the Democrats have done in holding the government hostage to extract special favors for illegal immigrants.”
The old adage, “Living well is the best revenge,” takes on new meaning as President Trump releases his 2017 Fake News Awards. The stock market’s historic highs attest to the veracity of the president’s economic policies.
Yet in his most recent attempt to vilify Pres. Trump, Republican renegade and fake news aficionado Jeff Flake says, “No politician will ever get to tell us what the truth is and is not. And anyone who presumes to try to attack or manipulate the press for his own purposes should be made to realize his mistake and be held to account.” Showboating Flake misses the point that the press is only sacrosanct when it doesn’t manipulate the truth to its own ends. The media have become willing arms of the Democrat Party, but job-seeking Flake neglects to mention that crucial point. Remaining mum on lame-duck Flake’s traitorous actions is the hierarchy of the Arizona Republican Party. Do they agree with Flake’s assaults on our Republican president? If not, why not say so?
The Republican National Committee superbly showcases — using photos, videos and graphics — the eleven award winners in the leftwing media, including the alphabet networks, Time and Newsweek magazines ,The Washington Post and New York Times. The RNC correctly notes, “2017 was a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage, and even downright fake news. Studies have shown that over 90% of the media’s coverage of President Trump is negative.”
These are the winners of the Fake News Awards:
While the media spent 90% of the time focused on negative coverage or fake news, the President has been getting results:
Lame duck Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake is reminiscent of a spoiled brat, demanding attention and wiling to do and say anything to be noticed.
Appearing Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” he was back to throwing puerile tantrums, the more outrageous, the better — or so he thinks. During this interview with host George Stephanopoulos, Flake compared President Trump to murderous Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. This contemptible misinterpretation of history is Flake’s response to Trump fittingly calling out deceptive news outlets as dishonest and purveyors of “fake news.”
Taking his spew to left-wing outlets where he is sure to be given the attention he craves, Flake couldn’t have picked a more responsive program than one helmed by Bill Clinton’s former senior adviser and communications director. Ethically challenged Stephanopoulos neglected to disclose a $75,000 donation to Bill and Hill’s “pay to play” Clinton Foundation, even as he reported on both the former president and his Democrat presidential candidate wife, Hillary.
Flake, who is “retiring” due to his acknowledged inability to win reelection, shows himself to be an even bigger fool than his reputation implies.
“When you reflexively refer to the press as the enemy of the people or fake news, that has real damage. It has real damage to our standing in the world,” Flake said. “And I noted how bad it is for a president to take what was popularized by Joseph Stalin, the enemy of the people, to refer to the press.”
The preposterous comparison exemplifies Jeff Fake’s historical illiteracy. During a single month in the midst of World War II, ruthless tyrant Stalin, fearing some of his military officers might challenge his absolute authority, ordered the execution of 30,000 Russian military men, or half of his own army and navy staff. An estimated 5 million Russian peasants died of famine after being forced off their land.
Flake, who loudly proclaimed his refusal to vote for the Republican nominee who was victorious over 16 other GOP primary challengers, followed his mentor Arizona’s senior senator (ASS) John McCain, and ultimately supported scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton.
Flake’s latest anti-Republican gambit in denouncing President Trump is making the Stalin comparison for his “unrelenting daily assault on the constitutionally-protected free press.” The Washington Post’s Ed O’Keefe has excerpts of Flake’s rant which he has already released to some anti-Trump outlets, and is expected to deliver on Wednesday. Let‘s hope his theatrics are delivered to a senate chamber devoid of Republicans.
Fake Jeff Flake prefers the Communist dictators Raul and Fidel Castro to our duly elected American President Donald Trump. Flake even traveled to repressive Cuba with his buddy Barack Obama to reestablish ties with the corrupt regime.
Mike Pence must have been the runner up
Donald Trump was a guest on “Larry King Live” nearly two decades ago, announcing the formation of an exploratory committee to possibly seek the candidacy of the Reform Party. (positions under link.)
King asked, “Do have a vice presidential candidate in mind?” Without much hesitation, Trump replied: “I love Oprah. Oprah would always be my first choice.”
“I think she’s really a great woman. A terrific woman, She’s somebody that’s really special. If she’d do it, she’d be fantastic. She’s popular, she’s brilliant, she’s wonderful woman. If she’d do it….she’s a very exceptional woman,” Trump gushed.
Former Arizona Congressman JD Hayworth will appear with Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, this evening.
The show centers on how President Trump is dealing with and beating the Fake News of the left.
