Ezra Klein is Editor-in-Chief of Vox, founder of JournoList, contributor to WaPo, Bloomberg News, and MSNBC, and an all-around liberal icon. A few years ago he said and wrote that the Constitution was written 100 years ago. This level of ignorance is expected from modern libs. What is surprising is that Mr. Klein has graduated from the University of California with a major in Political Science! If the lib icons have no idea about the subjects they supposedly studied, is it any surprise that they know nothing about physics, biology, and engineering?
In September 2015, Amazon.com, controlled by Jeff Bezos, added to its Amazon Prime package free subscription(*) to the The Washington Post, owned by Jeff Bezos (1). Thus, The Washington Post officially became an integral part of Amazon. This kind of arrangement between a national newspaper and a monopoly in multiple retail segments is unprecedented.
The Washington Post is one of the most rabid fakestream media outlets. Amazon is one of The Dirty 129, having served as a “witness” in a lawsuit, filed by the corrupt Washington State Attorney General Ferguson against the Executive Order No. 13769. Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.
Even before the elections, Donald Trump hinted that Amazon was a monopoly, and later The Washington Post assigned a special reporter’s team to dig dirt on him.

Hiring a lukewarmer Bret Stephens by The NY Times to cover the climate debate is too little, too late. But he referred to an article by Andrew Revkin who was a regular NYT climate alarmist in a little known. In this article My Climate Change, published in a small website issues.org more than a year ago, Revkin admitted to the alarmism, organized pressure, and more.
The main quotes:
“I saw a widening gap between what scientists had been learning about global warming and what advocates were claiming as they pushed ever harder to pass climate legislation or strengthen the faltering 1992 climate change treaty.”
“In 2006, I was part of a team of reporters at The Times that undertook a multi-year series called “The Energy Challenge” (nytimes.com/energychallenge), examining what it would take to deeply cut reliance on coal, oil, and gas, and move to climate-friendly technologies. The deeper we dug, the more we ran into enormous disconnects between the data and the claims. It was very clear that any transition to clean energy would be neither simple nor quick—and it wasn’t only for lack of political will.”
In the article, Revkin did not apologize and did not stop blaming the “fossil fuels”, but revealed more about corruption of journalism. Continue reading Andrew Revkin of NYT Admitted Alarmism
“In a radio interview I heard some years ago a BBC employee recalls his first day of work at the media establishment. An experienced colleague-mentor led him upstairs and out onto the roof. The two of them then stood together on the edge of the roof and urinated down on the people many floors below at ground level. (They were both male BTW.) This, the mentor explained was an important rite of passage impressing on a new employee the correct BBC attitude to hold towards the general public.” Continue reading BBC Pisses on the Public, Kisses up to Warmists

Following the main article in WattsUpWithThat about the New York Times shamelessly revising already published articles, we added a few more observations and examples of inappropriate revisions. These cases are outside the topic of climate debate. The revisions are substantial, undisclosed, and Continue reading The New York Lies: All the Lies that are Left to Print
Co-written with H.J.
It’s no secret that formerly respectable and mainstream media outlets became fake news purveyors. Whatever it is that drove journalists to lie and manipulate, the evidence is there to prove their intent to deceive.
Much like television commercials and print advertisements, news stories are written to sell the reader something. Many times, what the news outlets are selling is politically motivated. On almost any given topic they choose to cover, they’ve been seen to cherry pick quotes that are in line with their interests and agendas, to omit relevant information that may harm their stand on something, and to use language that falsely imputes guilt on Republicans and conservatives.
The list below includes several examples of stealthy and manipulative alterations of already published news articles by the Washington Post and CNN. Continue reading More Media Caught Stealthily Altering Published Articles
In September 2016, WaPo published an article with the title: “Scientists published climate research under fake names. Then they were caught.” The subject of the article was one of the lesser known cases of suppression of climate dissent in formerly respectable peer reviewed journals, suppression supported by a formerly respectable media. That case clearly shows impossibility for dissenters from climate alarmism orthodoxy to publish in scientific journals.
The Washington Post’s reaction is an expression of its contempt for free speech, which includes the use of pseudonyms. Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay wrote The Federalist Papers under the pseudonym (or the “fake name” according to WaPo) Publius. In The Federalist Papers they advocated ratification of the Constitution, seemingly another object of the WaPo contempt.
The media blackout of what looks like an act of climate terrorism, continues.
Following the ridiculous “March for Science,” at which third-rate performers and copywriters pretended to be scientists, unidentified shooters open fire at the office of Dr. John Christy. Dr. John Christy and Dr. Roy Spencer (who both work in the same building) are two of the prominent scientists who developed measurement methodology and have been maintaining the only truly global temperatures record — the satellite temperatures dataset.
Dr. Roy Spencer commented after the shooting:
“When I was at NASA, my boss was personally told by Al Gore that Gore blamed our satellite temperature dataset for the failure of carbon tax legislation to pass.”
Ignored by the FSM, this news was reported by Breitbart, Daily Caller, Washington Times, and WUWT.
Update (Apr 19, 2017): The NY Times switched from the “denier” to the “denialist“. newsdiffs.org shows six post-publication revisions in this single article, and highlights the changes.
Update (an hour after the first publication): NY Times keeps tinkering with the terminology and the article headline. Now it is “climate change denialist” (8 Dec 2016 20:50:53 EST) Continue reading NY Times modifies the phrase “Climate Change Denier”
Listed below are 15 lies in this NYT article . This is after the article was corrected on March 4, 2017, two days after it was originally published.
The article’s title is: “Top Trump Advisers Are Split on Paris Agreement on Climate Change”
Lie #1. Trump advisors are not split on the Paris agreement. The U.S. is not a part of the Paris agreement, because this agreement has not been ratified by the Senate. All parties of the Paris agreement knew that Obama’s signature did not bind the U.S. Whether the Trump administration repudiates or just ignores that agreement is hairsplitting. Besides, having different opinions is normal. Only Obama’s administration was a single-opinion government. Next: Continue reading How many Lies can one New York Times Article Contain?
FSM — Fakestream Media. Former mainstream media, except for the Fox News.
Repeaters — putative reporters who do little else but repeat Leftist lies.
ScAm — the descendant of the Scientific American magazine. It is is neither scientific nor American.
PRC — the People’s Republic of China or the People’s Republic of California, depending on the context.
Sustainable Embezzlement — a theft of public funds that meets the embezzlers’ current needs without condemning them to prison tomorrow.
UCS — the Union of Con Scientists. Can be also the Unicorn Scientists – because when was the last time we saw a real scientist among UCS personalities? Formerly, the Union of Commie Scientists or the Union of Concerned Scientists.
The long-observed phenomenon of newsmaking – where the media is creating events instead of reporting them – has long been in existence.
In a recent example, a team of Democrat staffers and journalists launched a national campaign against elected Republican Congress attempting to hit them where it hurts – in their states and electoral districts. The gist of the campaign is to appear as members of a grassroots movement of dissatisfied citizens, rather than a Democrat-organized attack. Examples from the campaign guide (bold font is original; red highlighting is mine): Continue reading When newsmakers talk of “GOP’s delusions”
The fake news networks (FNN) widely reported a demonstration of about 150 alleged tech workers against President Trump in connection to the immigration order. The photos from the demonstration show massive presence of UNITE HERE! – an extremist union whose captive membership consists mostly of unqualified workers.
I appreciate the sacrifice of these tech workers (if there are any; see the fake scientists demonstration) for the sake of profits of their employers who advocate unrestricted immigration from low-wage countries that replace American tech workers.
It is getting more weird on Reddit. I have been banned after re-posting the link to my article, pointing to the math errors in IPCC climate models and to the failure by so-called “climate modelling community” to develop specialized chips that would have allowed it to produce its garbage predictions thousands times faster: Continue reading Reddit is too Red for Climate Realists
Apparently, producers and editors of the leftstream TV channels lost ability to distinguish fiction from reality. Such TV genres as reality shows, environmentalist propaganda, and the liberal drivel in general blend reality and fiction in various ways. Combined with echoes of academic postmodern contructivist theories, this leads to the current post-truth reporting. Alternatively, the leftstream TV expresses contempt to its viewers. Whatever the cause, the fictional character “Bill Nye the Science Guy” has been presented as a real scientist on ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and CNN.
If you watch news on any of these channels, these might be fake news. New York Times has called this actor “the science guy” as well. Bill Nye receive BS in mechanical engineering in 1977 and worked as an engineer for some years after that. By 1993 his engineering gig was over. He has been an actor and a “TV personality” for the last 20 – 25 years. He can be called a former engineer, if it helps.
Updated 01/05/2017: added another photo of the same fake scientists rally, presented as a fact by Poynter, a self-described fact-checker and “global leader in journalism”!
FAKE NEWS: “This is not normal – climate researchers take to the streets to protect science,” according to The Guardian. The article purports to describe and illustrate a rally, held at AGU16 in San Francisco on December 13, 2016.
This Associated Press photo from the Guardian shows supposed scientists rally against Trump’s nominations Continue reading Fake News with photos of Fake Scientists
Yesterday I submitted my post Fake News with photos of Fake Scientists to Reddit in subreddit inthenews. It received one positive and one negative comments, and then I was banned from inthenews and news. Another confirmation that Internet news are pwned by the Left. Continue reading Reddit News Bans Exposure of Fake News
Wikipedia was hit by a scandal in 2009 when the public learned that William Connolley, a British Green Party politician and avid climate alarmist, was a Wikipedia administrator using his privileges to push climate alarmism while simultaneously suppressing dissenting voices. In addition to this, he personally edited more than 5,000 Wikipedia articles related to climate change debates. Wikipedia revoked his administrator’s privileges and the scandal has since dissipated.
