Killing Puppies? It has come to that? Sure looks like it.

The Washington Post Kills Puppies When You’re Not Looking. Stephen Kruiser — “The Trump presidency was filled with fake bombshell stories that came from anonymous sources. I’d written from the beginning that these sources weren’t real. For the kajillionth time, I was right.”

“The mainstream media in this country is forever redefining “low.” Its hacks fabricate non-truths that are detrimental to people who oppose the leftist agenda. They are dangerous, awful people. They cloak themselves in the Constitution while actively seeking to destroy it. In the past few years they’ve been working overtime to dismantle most of the First Amendment and all of the Second, Fifth, and Fourteenth.

Washington Post Accuses Trump Of A Crime Based On Fabricated Quotes. Mark Hemingway — “The Washington Post anonymously printed fabricated quotes, attributed them to a sitting president, and used those quotes as a basis to speculate the president committed a crime.”

“In sum: The Washington Post anonymously printed fabricated quotes they knew were from a second-hand source in the office of a political enemy, couldn’t confirm the quotes with additional sourcing, still attributed them to the sitting president of the United States, used those quotes as a basis to speculate the president committed a crime, and the Democratic party would later repeatedly cite the bogus article when attempting to impeach Trump for “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

But wait! It gets much worse. Several other major media outlets — including NBC, ABC, USA Today, PBS, and CNN — “confirmed” the fabricated quotes from the Post’s anonymous source by, get this, citing their own anonymous sources.

As alarming as all this is, in a disinformation climate such as the one we are currently living in, what happened with the Post’s correction is a rarity. Think for a second about all of the anonymously sourced stories you’ve read in recent years. Now realize it’s the dishonesty and manipulation that doesn’t get exposed that should scare you.

American Media and Old Soviet Media Are Now Peas in a Pod. Michael Walsh — “This correction in the “news” pages of The Washington Post a few days ago is simply stunning—and tells you all you need to know about the state of the mainstream media today” … “What the communists understood, however, was that state control of the media was a prerequisite for tyranny: who were you going to believe, Pravda (which means truth in Russian) or your lying, counter-revolutionary eyes?”

Never Trumpers Illustrate Why Loyalty Is An Important Political Virtue. Auguste Meyrat — “Julie Kelly’s book, ‘Disloyal Opposition,’ ably documents just how tedious and unprincipled Donald Trump’s allegedly conservative critics turned out to be.”

“Whether it’s the sanctimonious French, the reptilian Kristol, or the unstable Jennifer Rubin, a common pattern emerges that goes beyond their opposition to Trump. Based on the evidence evidence Kelly lays out, all of them seem to suffer from a strange solipsism that prevents self-awareness. Besides Trump being wrong all of the time, they are always right — no matter what position they take or how much reality contradicts them.

They were like Brutus killing his friend Caesar, except they were far less justified and didn’t succeed. The only thing they killed was their credibility.

‘Soft’ Science Has No Place in Government Policymaking. Henry I. Miller and Andrew I. Fillat — “This topic is important not just because of an inane assertion by a political appointee, but because science these days is often distorted by ideology and politics, and abetted by scientific illiteracy.” … “There are two problems with public officials legitimizing “soft science” as the basis for policymaking: It often fails to arrive at the right answers and can undermine public trust.”

“Real science is apolitical. The phrase “follow the science” is commonly used to persuade, even when the speaker knows “the science” is unclear, equivocal, or being misrepresented for political purposes. As a result, many officials have lost credibility and provoked defiance rather than compliance. The only long-term answer is dependence on honest and objective science – hard science – and the reporting of it.

This drop happened despite more travel over Christmas and the holidays.”
