Published

on

A far-left news outlet has announced the firing of most of its staff while its CEO tries to dump the company on a larger media organization.

“Mic CEO Chris Altchek announced the layoffs at a staff meeting this morning. Until today the company had employed more than 100 people,” according to Recode. 

Altchek is reportedly trying to close a deal to sell the site to Bustle Media Group.

“Mic raised more than $60 million to build a millennial-focused news company but couldn’t find a business model to support its costs, which include a one-floor office in Manhattan’s World Trade Center (an earlier version of this story incorrectly reported the size of Mic’s office),” according to the report.

That’s a lot of money to spend only to find out that millennials don’t read, which someone should have told those poor investors.

The New York Post said that Mic is set to sell for somewhere around $5 million.

Mic was a far left media outlet that had an entire section designated for “Navigating Trump’s America.”

That section of the site included such headlines as “Today in Trump’s America: US fires tear gas at migrants, including children and toddlers.” Mic did not once report about the Obama administration using tear gas at the border, which it did more than 500 times.

Another headline reported that “Betsy DeVos’ predecessor says new Title IX rules will dissuade victims from reporting sexual assault.” DeVos implemented new rules requiring due process for the accused on college campuses, instead of getting trounced on by kangaroo courts implemented by universities.

The site also harangued Trump for partaking in the annual Turkey pardoning event, a White House tradition, with a headline reading “This Week in Politics: A few House midterm races still up in the air as Trump pardons a turkey.”

Bon voyage, Mic!

Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War

The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.

Published

The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.

Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.

A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.

These are some very dishonest people, folks.
