WH Claims “Never Excluded Reporters;” Just One HUGE Problem

BY C.E. DYER

After President-elect Donald Trump rightly called out CNN for being “fake news” and also for being incredibly rude during a press conference Wednesday, the rude CNN journalist in question, Jim Acosta, claimed that incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer threatened to throw him out of the press conference, which Spicer denied, according to The Hill.

Current White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest actually claimed on Thursday, in response to a question about the dust-up caused by the Clinton News Network, that he could “never recall a scenario where I was tempted to throw someone out of the room.”

The Hill reported that “The spokesman said dealing with tough questions from the media is ‘part of the process’ of leading a democratic country.”

This is so rich on a couple of levels. First, it’s hilarious for anyone from the Obama administration to lecture about handling “tough questions” when the mainstream media carried their water for eight years.

That brings us to the next point that catches Earnest in a big fat lie. He absurdly claimed that he has never even felt tempted to throw an outlet out. As we know, the one outlet that asked any tough questions, Fox News, was treated very unfairly by the Obama administration.

Moreover, Earnest himself wrote in an email back in 2009: “We’ve demonstrated our willingness and ability to exclude Fox News from significant interviews,” as revealed by Judicial Watch.

Judicial Watch reported:

… internal Obama administration emails obtained by Judicial Watch provide evidence that FNC was specifically singled out for exclusion. According to one October 22, 2009, email exchange between Dag Vega, Director of Broadcast Media on the White House staff, to Jenni LeCompte, then-Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs in the Treasury Department, Vega informs LeCompte that “…we’d prefer if you skip Fox please.”

Regarding general anti-FNC bias within the Obama White House in an October 23, 2009, email exchange between Jennifer Psaki, Deputy White House Communications Director and LeCompte, Psaki writes, “I am putting some dead fish in the fox cubby – just cause”. In an email on the night of October 22, 2009, commenting on a report by Fox News Channel anchor Bret Baier noting the exclusion of the network from the pool, Psaki writes to Compte and fellow White House colleagues, “…brett baier just did a stupid piece on it — but he is a lunatic”.

Deputy White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest bluntly described the White House’s position on Fox News Channel in an October 23, 2009, email to LeCompte:

“We’ve demonstrated our willingness and ability to exclude Fox News from significant interviews…”

‘PAYBACK’S A BITCH’: FOX NEWS’ NEIL CAVUTO SKEWERS CNN IN EPIC TIRADE

‘Ouch! How’s all that going down, CNN?’

| Infowars.com – JANUARY 13, 2017

Fox News host Neil Cavuto slapped CNN in the face Thursday, rubbing salt in a wound opened by President-elect Donald Trump earlier this week when he labeled the network “fake news.”

Highlighting how CNN stood down while Fox News was repeatedly attacked by President Barack Obama, Cavuto pointed out it’s not much fun when the shoe is on the other foot.

“Ouch! How’s all that going down, CNN?” Cavuto asked. “How does it feel to be dismissed, or worse, ignored? How does it feel when your feelings are hurt? When your reporters are singled out? And you’re treated unfairly and unkindly? Even rudely? What is it like not to be liked? It’s not really fun, is it?”

Here’s the rest of Cavuto’s tirade, where he reminds CNN that “payback is a bitch”:

It is not fun when you think you’re doing your job, and the guy you’re covering thinks you’re the piece of work.

It’s insulting, isn’t it? Being called on the carpet by the next leader of the free world after years of giving the present one all but a free pass?

You can’t figure out suddenly not being in. It bugs you when someone questions whether you’re fair, doesn’t it? Or cuts you to your journalistic core, doesn’t it? It matters now when it’s about you, doesn’t it? Not so much when it’s about someone else.

Presidential pile-ons matter when you’re the subject, not so much — actually scratch that, not at all — when let’s say Fox is the subject.

[Video cuts to several clips of President Obama repeatedly denigrating Fox News]

And everyone chuckled. Take it from me, taking truth to power can be powerfully unsettling if that power sets its sights on you and attacks you and dismisses you and ignores you.

It didn’t matter so much when it wasn’t about you before, CNN. Very different now that it’s you being singled out, CNN. Doesn’t seem very fair now, does it? The shabby treatment of your reporter’s not very nice now, is it?

That’s life, I guess, not fair often, not balanced. And now you’re experiencing what we have been living. Now you’re the ones royally “foxed.”

And the irony is I feel your pain. Now you never came to our defense so allow me to come to yours: you are better than Buzzfeed.

But the buzz is you’re getting fed to the wolves. Isn’t it obnoxious and unfair how some celebrate your plight? Kind of feels like the way you celebrated ours, doesn’t it?

They say payback’s a bitch. If only you would take a moment to rewind the tape and see the shoe is on the other foot. Or am I confusing it with the one now kicking you in the ass?

Frank Luntz: Obama on a ‘FU Tour,’ Trying to ‘Settle Scores’ With Republicans

BY BREITBART TV

Over the weekend, pollster Frank Luntz blasted President Barack Obama during a Fox News appearance, accusing the president of “trying to settle scores before he leaves.”

Luntz compared Obama’s final days as president to President-elect Donald Trump’s “thank you” tour, calling it a “FU tour.”

“If Trump did this great tour of the country, they called it a victory tour or thank you tour, Obama seems to be doing a… uh… trying to figure out the right language so I don’t get fined by the FCC, a FU tour. I guess that’s the best way to put it,” Luntz said.

He explained, “What he has said about Hillary Clinton and her campaign and drawing that contrast. What he has done to Israel and to Benjamin Netanyahu. That there are people that he has had political difficulties with—and by the way, Republican members of the house and senate—the people who he’s disagreed with over the last eight years. He’s gone to great pains to draw a contrast between the things that he says and the things that they have done that makes me think he’s trying to settle scores before he leaves, and that’s not presidential.”

LMAO! TRUMP IS A MASTER, he made the media HIS BITCH! Trump on economy: “its good”
jcaled24

In making that prediction Obama is making the same false assumption that Hillary made. They both thought/think the electorate is much the same as it was in 2008 when really it much more closely resembled the electorate of 2014 that caused all the shake ups in the congressional elections. He would have lost just as bad..

Or worse. He would have lost in a LANDSLIDE. Fool us once shame on you, fool us twice shame on US.

..well in fairness there was cash for clunkers and obama phones..there is that.

FU to you too Obamawama! Make sure that those white mahogany White House doors don’t hit you too hard in your azz as you leave!

MTV PULLS RACIST ‘RESOLUTIONS FOR WHITE GUYS’ VIDEO AMID OUTRAGE

Video focused entirely on skin color

Kit Daniels | Infowars.com – DECEMBER 21, 2016

MTV deleted its controversial ‘Resolutions for White Guys’ video after the network suffered severe backlash from viewers:

screen-shot-2016-12-21-at-11-45-56-am

Here’s a copy of the video uploaded to YouTube after MTV deleted the original:

The original video, which received over 11,000 down votes compared to just 89 up votes, told “white guys” they could “do a little better in 2017.”

“Just because you have black friends doesn’t mean you’re not racist,” the video claimed. “You can be racist with black friends.”

“And feel free to take Kanye West, though. You guys can have him.”

West was targeted for meeting with President-elect Donald Trump last week.

Critics of the video called it racist for focusing entirely on skin color and for personally attacking white viewers.

“As an Irish person anytime someone insists all white people are privileged I just have to laugh,” one reddit user commented. “Try reading a history book about Ireland and you’ll hear all about a nation of white people who were anything but privileged.”

Here’s a transcript of the original video:

White male #1: Hey, fellow white guys!

Non-white male #1: It’s about to be a new year.

Black male #1: And there’s a few things we think you could do a little bit better in 2017.

[Title On-Screen: 2017 Resolutions for White Guys]

Non-white female #1: First off, try to recognize that America was never great for anyone who wasn’t a white guy.

Non-white female #2: Can we all just agree that Black Lives Matter isn’t the opposite of all lives matter? Black lives just matter. There’s no need to overcomplicate it.

White male #1: Also, Blue Lives Matter isn’t a thing.

Black male #1: Cops weren’t born with blue skin — right? I mean — yeah! They weren’t born blue.

White male #2: Stop bragging about being woke.

Non-white male #1: Stop saying woke.

White female #1: Learn what “mansplaining” is and then stop doing it.

White male #1: Oh, and if you’re a judge, then don’t prioritize the well-being of an Ivy League athlete over the woman he assaulted.

Black male #1: We all love Beyonce and yeah, she’s black, so of course she cares about black issues. I’m talking to you, Fox News.

Non-while female #2: Feel free to take Kanye West, though. You guys can have him.

Black male #1: You know what you did, Kanye.

White male #2: Nobody who has black friends says that they have black friends.

Black male #1: And just because you have black friends doesn’t mean you’re not racist. You can be racist with black friends.

Non-white male #1: Look, guys, we know nobody’s perfect.

Non-white female #1: But — honestly, you can do a little better in 2017.

White female #1: Some of you guys do a great job. Some of you don’t.

Black male #1: Please cause 2016 was bad. 2017 can’t be worse than this, alright? Cause this is bad.

TRUMP SLAMS MEDIA ELITE, FACE TO FACE

screen-shot-2016-11-21-at-4-57-36-pm

By Emily Smith and Daniel Halper November 21, 2016 | 5:12pm | Updated

Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post.

“It was like a f–ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.

“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.

“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.

A second source confirmed the fireworks.

“The meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said.

“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.

“Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.”

The stunned reporters tried to get a word in edgewise to discuss access to a Trump Administration.

“[CBS Good Morning co-host Gayle] King did not stand up, but asked some question, ‘How do you propose we the media work with you?’ Chuck Todd asked some pretty pointed questions. David Muir asked ‘How are you going to cope living in DC while your family is in NYC? It was a horrible meeting.”

Trump spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway told reporters the gathering went well.

“Excellent meetings with the top executives of the major networks,” she said during a gaggle in the lobby of Trump Tower. “Pretty unprecedented meeting we put together in two days.”

The meeting was off the record, meaning the participants agreed not to talk about the substance of the conversations.

The hour-long session included top execs from network and cable news channels. Among the attendees were NBC’s Deborah Turness, Lester Holt and Chuck Todd, ABC’s James Goldston, George Stephanopoulos, David Muir and Martha Raddatz,

Also, CBS’ Norah O’Donnell John Dickerson, Charlie Rose, Christopher Isham and King, Fox News’ Bill Shine, Jack Abernethy, Jay Wallace, Suzanne Scott, MSNBC’s Phil Griffin and CNN’s Jeff Zucker and Erin Burnett.

Arthur Sulzberger, publisher of The New York Times, plans to meet with Trump Tuesday.

There was no immediate comment from the Trump Team.
