Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 24, 2020

The Daily Beast reports that One America News Network on-air host Christina Bobb has been in conference room with Trump's so-called "strike-force" legal team and sources in the room say Bobb, also a lawyer by trade, has taken on a role as a pro-Trump lawyer.

Wikipedia: OAN is known for downplaying threats posed to the United States by Russia. According to a former OAN producer, on his first day at OAN he was told, "Yeah, we like Russia here."One of OAN's reporters, Kristian Brunovich Rouz, simultaneously works for the Russian propaganda outlet and news agency Sputnik, which is state-owned; when Rouz runs favorable segments on OAN that relate to Russia, OAN does not disclose that he also works for Sputnik. In September 2019, OAN parent Herring Networks filed suit in federal court in San Diego, California, against MSNBC host Rachel Maddow for $10 million after Maddow said the network "literally [is] paid Russian propaganda" on her July 22, 2019 program. Maddow had referenced a Daily Beast story identifying Rouz as also working for Sputnik. Also named in the suit were Comcast, MSNBC and NBCUniversal Media. A hearing on a motion to strike brought by Maddow was originally scheduled for March 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the arguments were moved to May 2020 by Judge Cynthia Bashant. The judge dismissed the lawsuit, finding the claim was not defamation, but that a "reasonable viewer" would recognize it as a reasonable summation of the article published by The Daily Beast. OAN responded by saying it would appeal the decision

OAN is looking more and more like a Russian-affiliated public relations arm of the Trump administration than a news organization.

No wonder Pres Trump likes them.

You don't even understand how funny your post was. I can't stop laughing (crying). You are so propagandized that you don't even know what the truth is.

Hey Maverick, remember when Trump promised you he would bring the jobs back home? What happened? He lied to you yet you can't call him out for it because you can't admit you were duped by a conman. You were, admit it, you'll feel better.

Trump supporters, following Trump, have long made it a practice to chastise others in regards to moral principles they themselves absolutely do not hold.

Perhaps if the Dems win the Senate, Biden should give Trump a choice between a pardon for treason, or prosecution. If Trump takes the pardon, that's an admission that he's guilty of treason. If he chooses prosecution, begin the investigations into his financial ties to the Russians and how they've influenced his Presidency.

Doesn't matter if Dems win the senate or not really. He wont' be President so it won't be an impeachment but a DOJ affair.

"He wont' be President so it won't be an impeachment but a DOJ affair."

Has Biden announced who will be his AG yet? I would have wanted Kamala Harris to fill that slot but some other bad ass will do. I want the toughest, meanest bad ass AG possible. No mercy on the Trump family.

YouTube temporarily suspends, demonetizes OANN
www.axios.com

...YouTube has barred One America News Network from posting new videos for a week and stripped it of its ability to make money off existing content after the Trump-friendly channel uploaded a video promoting a phony cure for COVID-19, YouTube spokesperson Ivy Choi tells Axios.

Why it matters: YouTube has been criticized for allowing OANN to spread misinformation using its platform, particularly around coronavirus and the election. This marks the Google-owned service's first crackdown against OANN....


Interesting details at the cited article...

"and you have a bad case of butt hurt."

My neighbor is an emergency room doctor, she recommends that you heat up towels as hot as you can stand and sit on them for fifteen minutes or so when you get out of the shower. I haven't tried it but another neighbor did and she says it worked amazingly well.

I can only hope people like yourself wake up one morning and the depth of your ignorance hits you like a Mac Truck. I will give a shot at explaining some of the differences to you.

The difference between deranged and deluded right wing people much as yourself and typical centrists, Liberals and even some on the right are many. 9 out of 10 times we see the slant no matter what - right/left/unbiased... And perhaps more importantly - we care about facts - not what someone proclaims but the ACTUAL FACTS. Certainly our perspective is somewhat different but in "theory" we care about the same things. We have fears but they don't control our lives. mediabiasfactcheck.com is a great resources that impartially analyzes news sources. I personally think they do a marvelous job at it as well.

The MSM has both mild right and left slants as well as neutrality depending on the source. Most of the big outlets are LEFT-CENTER biased - These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words. I personally believe the most loaded words come into play in most cases in the titles as they are meant to drive clicks which equals revenue. The key we need to consider though is FACTUAL information as most earn a HIGH rating in that area. My personal favorite is NPR who has a VERY HIGH factual rating. But other favorites include the Detroit News, MLive, BBC, Ars Technica, Wired, LawfareBlog, bellingcat.com.

And now comes the problem...

Perhaps the main and most mild of "mainstream" right wing news outlets is Fox News. Fox News is RIGHT - Not CENTER-RIGHT. So immediately you should understand they are far more right slanted than the MSM. They are the equivalent of MSNBC in Slant. The bigger problem becomes bigger because they have factual reporting issues - not just loaded wording. And that isn't even the "entertainment" Fox News but the actual NEWS shows that get a mixed rating on Facts.

In comes OAN. OAN is EXTREME RIGHT. They get a LOW Factual ratings. Anyone believing anything there should have their head examined.

Friends to help settle your mind: MediaBiasFactCheck.com, Snopes.com, fullfact.org and others do the leg work for you on finding bias and factual errors.

Yes you're totally right, if you call reporting facts "supporting dems".

Does telling the country that the president had unprotected sex with a porn star and paid her illegal hush money mean the press is "supporting dems?" Does telling the country that the president offered foreign assitance in exchange for dirt on his political enemies mean the press is "supporting dems?"

I wish there was a way to reach people like you. But reason hasn't worked, and the complete and utter failure of an obvious conman hasn't worked, so I guess it's not going to happen.

But we're going to move on without you.

I forgot about that one... I love that chart btw - it should make it apparent that the MSM isn't this biased beast the right wing kooks portrays it as and the Right has far more bias and factual problems.

Of course the brainwashed twits will just tweet "Fake News!"

The right has been so radicalized by decades of FOX News that now even FOX News lives in fear of their audience. Check out how carefully Laura Ingraham has to approach telling her audience that there is no pathway to victory for Trump. It would be hysterical if it weren't so tragic.

Exactly right, Hagbard. Fox is learning that they can't put their genie back in the bottle. We are way past that point.

Pete, it's at least a couple years since the right hasn't thought of those sources as left wing fronts.

There is no longer any generally accepted arbiter of facts that doesn't reinforce their biases 100% of the time.
