I collect Soviet newspapers. Years ago, I used to travel to Moscow’s Izmailovsky flea market every few weeks, hooking up with a dealer who crisscrossed the country digging up front pages from the Cold War era. I have Izvestia’s celebration of Gagarin’s flight, a Pravda account of a 1938 show trial, even an ancient copy of Ogonyek with Trotsky on the cover that someone must have taken a risk to keep. These relics, with dramatic block fonts and red highlights, are cool pieces of history. Not so cool: the writing! Soviet newspapers were wrought with such anvil shamelessness that it’s difficult to imagine anyone ever read them without laughing. A good Soviet could write almost any Pravda headline in advance. What else but “A Mighty Demonstration of the Union of the Party and the People” fit the day after Supreme Soviet elections? What news could come from the Spanish civil war but “Success of the Republican Fleet?” Who could earn an obit headline but a “Faithful Son of the Party”?
(NEWSBUSTERS) -- To help ring in the first day of CNN+ on Tuesday, Reliable Sources Daily host Brian Stelter brought on CNN’s first two anchors Dave Walker and Lois Hart (a married couple) with the idea that they would tell some stories about the early days at the network and give advice to the hosts on their new streaming service. They did get some of that, but oh man, was it also embarrassing as Walker griped about CNN’s leanings with opinion content and Hart touted her influence in that direction.
“So, 42 years later, do the two of you – now happily retired – do you still watch CNN,” Stelter asked. But little did he know what he just invited.
How the Mafia tried to bury The Godfather - until they were bought off with roles on screen: Fifty years on, BRIAN VINER says the gangster classic is still the best film ever made. But few know the real story behind it
BRIAN VINER: Film-lovers have a treat in store in 2022. The greatest movie ever made is getting a 50th anniversary re-release, and if you've never seen The Godfather on the big screen, then make a note of Friday, February 25. It's a cinematic offer you can't refuse. Of course, there are plenty of other contenders for the title of greatest movie ever made. But those of us who think it's The Godfather, know it's The Godfather. And one of the most remarkable things about Francis Ford Coppola's masterpiece about a Mob family in 1940s New York, and their battle for supremacy with the Mob's other leading families, is that it was every bit as eventful off screen as on.
Boy, hope we can get rid of some more of these idiots who hate real America- Maybe I could watch FOX again....
UPDATE, Nov. 22, 2021: This story has been updated to note that following its publication, a Fox News source with knowledge of the situation said the network had no intentions of renewing Hayes and Goldberg's contracts when they expired in 2022. This story and its headlines remain as published.
Calling a Tucker Carlson documentary on January's Capitol incursion the last straw, two Fox News contributors are walking away from the network.
Jonah Goldberg and Steve Hayes announced their divorce from Fox on Sunday in a blog post on The Dispatch, a website they created to promote their brand of conservatism.
In a comment to The New York Times, Carlson called their resignations “great news.”
“Our viewers will be grateful,” he said.
Carlson’s documentary “Patriot Purge” was the catalyst for leaving Fox after 12 years, Goldberg and Hayes said in the post.
As our nation celebrate those who have served in our armed forces and sacrificed for our freedoms, Director Mel Gibson has brought to view the story of Desmond Doss in the movie, Hacksaw Ridge.
Hacksaw Ridge, is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss, who, in Okinawa, during the bloodiest battle of WW ll, saved 75 men without firing a shot or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WW ll to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an Army Medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Mel Gibson, Congressional Medal of Honor.
|President Truman presents the Medal of Honor to Desmond Doss|
Desmond Doss had been raised with a fervent belief in the Bible. When it came to the Ten Commandments, he applied them personally. During childhood his father had purchased a large framed picture at an auction. It portrayed the Ten Commandments with colorful illustrations. Next to the words, "Thou shalt not kill" was a drawing of Cain holding a club and standing over the body of his dead brother, Abel. Little Desmond would look at that picture and ask, "Why did Cain kill Abel? How in the world could a brother do such a thing?" In Desmond's mind, God said, "If you love me, you won't kill." With that picture firmly embedded in his mind, he determined that he would never take a life.

Rush Limbaugh's black producer denounced as "scandalous" CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta's claim that the talk-radio icon has a "history" of racist statements, challenging the TV journalist to provide evidence.
James Golden, known on the air as Bo Snerdley, pointed out he's been in the studio with Limbaugh for 30 years.
Acosta was commenting on air after President Trump's State of the Union address, which featured many accomplishments that have helped African Americans. Limbaugh, who announced this week he's been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom during the speech.
"He was trying to make appeals to the African-American community," Acosta said of the president. "It can't be forgotten he was awarding the Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh, who has a history of making derogatory comments about African-Americans. So I think, you know, overall it's a wash." MORE
Tucker's show is probably the only Fox Show that tells The Plain Truth these days!

CNN’s statement accepting the resignation of the editor makes clear the editor had worked at CNN for some time, and had made the antisemitic statements back in 2011.
Notwithstanding my long association and friendship with publisher Joseph Farah – who we all pray will have a full recovery from his recent serious stroke – I have written about 700 columns for this great publication over the years since I founded Judicial Watch, ran for the U.S. Senate in my home state of Florida and then founded Freedom Watch, which I run today. Indeed, I have compiled all of them in a four-volume work titled “Essays of a Mad Man,” which is available by going to Freedom Watch’s website at www.freedomwatchusa.org.
One of the many reasons I love and respect Joseph and his fine staff is that WND allows me to express my unvarnished views and legal exploits without censorship. The publication is also the most pure of all conservative websites as it does not give quarter to political correctness to churn advertising dollars and to jingle the change for its top brass.
However, despite WND’s principled leadership in the conservative movement and unafraid reporting based on ethics, morality and the Judeo-Christian heritage and way of life, there are other so-called conservative news sources that play both sides of the proverbial street.
Perhaps the biggest and most powerful offender has become Fox News. Once conceived of and run by a conservative ideologue, Roger Ailes – who had serious problems with the vile way he treated women, such as my client Laura Luhn, who was sexually abused and harassed by Ailes – the network, upon Ailes’ forced resignation, was effectively taken over by Lachlan Murdoch, a closet liberal. And his father, Rupert, who turned over this network control to his heir, is no real conservative either, but simply a businessman who understood that Ailes could exploit conservative viewership for cold cash.

Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson reacted to reports that Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller was submitting his the probe’s report to Attorney General William Barr, which signified the conclusion of the probe’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Given there were no indictments tied to alleged collusion between 2016 Trump campaign officials and the Russian government, Carlson concluded the many had been misled by some who have taken to television to make claims of Trump-Russia collusion.
“The people on TV have been lying to you,” Carlson said. “They will deny it now. They will tell you it was always about Trump’s taxes or some foreign real estate deal or hush money he paid to a girlfriend. That’s a crock. This investigation was always from day one about collusion with Russia. About betraying this country. They told us that for years.”
“What’s going on with Fox by the way? What’s going on there?” Trump asked. “They’re putting on more Democrats than you have Republicans, something very strange is going on at Fox folks, something very strange.”
The Plain Truth is that Fox News has become an anti-Trump liberal never Trumper network with few exceptions ! The pro Queer world we live in today refuses to out the abominations to God's Law!
Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume called out the Washington Post for criticizing Attorney General William Barr’s loyalty to President Donald Trump.
He argued the Post said nothing when former Attorney General Eric Holder declared himself a “wingman” to then-President Barack Obama. MORE
The New York Times has suspended the publication of all future syndicated political cartoons in its international print edition, the newspaper’s spokeswoman Eileen Murphy confirmed late Monday.
Former NBC "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno said Tuesday that he doesn't miss hosting a late-night show and lamented that “everyone has to know your politics” now during an interview with NBC's Al Roker.
"Do you miss being on the show, or is it such a different time that it would be hard to do?" "Today Show" host Roker asked Leno.
"No, it’s different. I don’t miss it. You know, everything now is, if people don’t like your politics, they — everyone has to know your politics," Leno replied.
"I kind of used Johnny’s model. People couldn’t figure out. 'Well, you and your Republican friends' or 'Well, Mr. Leno, you and your Democratic buddies.' And I would get hate mail from both sides equally," Leno said, referring to his predecessor at "The Tonight Show," Johnny Carson.
Lara Logan, foreign correspondent for CBS’s 60 Minutes, said Breitbart News offers “the other side” of news media relative to what she described as a mostly left-wing and partisan Democrat news landscape in the U.S. and abroad.
She offered her remarks in an interview published last Friday with the Mike Drop podcast, hosted by retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland. Ritland characterized U.S. news media as “absurdly left-leaning” and supportive of Democrats, further describing the status quo of American news media’s left-wing and partisan Democrat biases as a “huge fucking problem” and “disaster for this country.”
Logan concurred, “I agree with that. That’s true.” She described U.S. and international news media as “mostly liberal,” adding, “most” journalists are left.
“The media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just the U.S.,” assessed Logan.
