    by Harold Hutchison   Historians say that a New York Times reporter aided the Soviet Union’s attempts to conceal a genocide. The late Walter Duranty, whom many historians accused of helping Josef Stalin’s regime hide the Holodomor, a man-made famine that was used as an instrument of genocide that killed at least 3.9 million people, served as the Times’ top reporter in Moscow for 14 years. “Not only did communists in the USSR cover it up, but so did communists in America who quite literally swore a loyalty oath to Stalin’s Soviet Union when they formally joined the American Communist Party,” Paul Kengor, a Cold War historian and professor of political science at Grove City College, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Also covering it up, quite shamelessly, was the New York Times’ now-infamous ‘Man in Moscow,’ Walter Duranty, who scandalously would be awarded the Pulitzer Prize, despite his woefully misleading journalism.” “Duranty was known as, according to Paul Johnson, the most comprehensive of Stalin’s apologists,” said Larry Schweikart, a retired history professor, author of “A Patriot’s History of the...

    The New York Times has been a driving force behind establishment media narratives since its inception 170 years ago. However, the outlet’s reporting on issues ranging from pre-World War II Europe to the Trump administration has included false information that it has been forced to correct or retract. These are 10 of the biggest whoppers published by the NYT. 1. No Famine In Stalin’s Ukraine NYT Moscow bureau chief Walter Duranty was a key player in covering up the Soviet Union Holodomor genocide during his tenure between 1922 and 1936. Duranty claimed grain production in Ukraine, the breadbasket of the Soviet Union, allowed the country to fuel its industrial development. But the outlet’s coverage of Ukraine in the 1930’s dismissed growing concerns about mass starvation and the Holodomor genocide, which historians estimate killed nearly 4 million people and attribute to Soviet Union leader Joseph Stalin’s collectivization policies.

    After a movement in which organizers were able to obtain over two million signatures, Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom will officially be up for a recall election on Sept. 14. A recall ballot in California consists of two questions: whether the incumbent should be recalled? and if so, which challenger should replace them? If a majority of voters favor removing Newsom by selecting “yes” on the first question, then the recall candidate with the most votes will finish his term as governor of the Golden State. Out of the dozens of contenders that will appear on the ballot, one, in particular, has become the frontrunner to replace Newsom if the recall vote is a success: longtime conservative radio host Larry Elder. The latest polls show that a “yes” vote on the recall has a slight +0.5 advantage in the RCP average while FiveThirtyEight has Newsom surviving by an average of just +1.2. Larry Elder is dominating in the polls to be Newsom’s replacement, with RCP and FiveThirtyEight both showing him leading by an average margin of +10. The razor-thin margins...
    Originally Published by: Rescuers at condo collapse told they can go home, but they refuse Suspected tornado rips through Georgia Naval base Peacock gunned down after Craigslist ad took out hit on the bird CNN commentator Scott Jennings tore into the New York Times‘ analysis of the American flag that suggested Old Glory had become a symbol of divisiveness, calling the argument “deranged.” Over the holiday weekend, the Times tweeted, “Today, flying the American flag from the back of a pickup truck or over a lawn is increasingly seen as a clue, albeit an imperfect one, to a person’s political affiliation in a deeply divided nation,” with a link to their piece, “A Fourth of July Symbol of Unity That May No Longer Unite.” “How deranged, how crazy have we gotten over our national politics that, if you see someone flying an American flag, you run the other direction, because you assume that you all don’t agree on politics?” Jennings asked on CNN’s “New Day” on Wednesday. “It’s crazy.” “I really hate this...
    The theory that COVID-19 may have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology has steadily gained momentum in the media and the scientific community in recent months.
            by James D. Agresti  A New York Times essay by columnist Kevin Roose frets that the U.S. is suffering from a “reality crisis” and proposes this solution: President Biden should set up a “truth commission” to combat the “scourge” of “hoaxes, lies and collective delusions” that lead to “violent unrest and civic dysfunction.” Yet, the Times’ idea of “truth” often consists of falsehoods that cause violent unrest and civic dysfunction. This includes but is not limited to hoaxes, lies and collective delusions that: spur violence against police. incite class warfare. stagnate the economy. slander the United States. sow racial animosity. empower criminals by disarming their victims.  cover up corruption and fraud. harm the nation’s education system. demonize elected officials. conceal the deadly effects of illegal immigration. distort science. rationalize and cloak the killing of pre-birth humans. drive the U.S. deeper into debt. Below is a sampling of such statements published by the Times, along with the primary sources that disprove them. These quotes come from both news articles and commentaries, which the Times...
            by James D. Agresti  The New York Times has published a “fact check“ by Linda Qui declaring that Donald Trump’s lawyers “made a number of inaccurate or misleading claims” during the Senate impeachment trial. In reality, much of the article consists of flagrant falsehoods propagated by Qui and the Times. “Inciting Violence” With regard to Trump’s speech on the day of the Capitol Hill riot, Trump attorney Michael van der Veen said: “Far from promoting insurrection against the United States, the president’s remarks explicitly encouraged those in attendance to exercise their rights peacefully and patriotically.” That statement is demonstrably true, as the transcript of the speech shows that Trump asked his supporters to go “to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” Qui, however, alleges that his attorney’s statement “is exaggerated” because Trump “used the phrase ‘peacefully and patriotically’ once in his speech, compared with 20 uses of the word ‘fight’.” Qui’s argument presumes that Trump used the word “fight” to denote physical violence. This mimics the Democrat’s impeachment resolution, which...
    More than half of the people facing charges for participating in the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot with available public records have faced serious financial woes, according to an analysis. More than 200 people have been arrested for participating in the Capitol Riot, which caused five deaths and temporarily delayed the certification of President Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory, according to USA Today. In the wake of the insurrection, the focus of Congress, the White House and the media has been on addressing online misinformation and QAnon, but this new analysis shows there might be another dimension. Of the 200 arrests, the Washington Post was able to analyze the financial records of 125 people. Nearly 60% of those people, about 75, faced financial difficulties, including bankruptcy and eviction, according to that analysis.

    The foremost priority in the NBA right now is health, keeping everyone in the league and around the game as safe as possible while playing as the coronavirus pandemic still rages. The next priority for players: shining light on issues where they feel true equality doesn’t exist. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Basketball is a clear third. Games are still extremely important; the quest for wins and championships is why players and coaches get paid millions of dollars, some of them tens of millions of dollars, per year. But for the most part, there’s a sense of perspective around the league after nearly a year of turbulence — with the COVID-19 fight and struggle against the ongoing issue of racial injustice topping the players' to-do lists. It seemed like the annual celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life was different this year. Yes, there were many tributes and words at arenas around the league Monday, but the celebrations seemed to prompt many in the NBA to reflect more than usual on what matters most. "I think...
    Entertainment : Horace it is a strange and difficult game to classify. Grounded in references to the pop culture of the British eighties and nineties, its pixel-art aesthetic dances between perspectives and layers of depth to show a world. Pure indie In it, the plot, well spun for most of the time, suffers from mechanics that seek more to attack nostalgia than to assert itself. Let’s dig a little deeper. A game between two, that is Horace. The project was orchestrated from the beginning by Paul Helmann. From design to history, passing through each pixel on the screen to each note in our ears, the truth is that during the seven years that it was developed, the game could not have come to us without it and without Sean Scaplehorn, its programmer. A personal work, an intimate vision from Helmann’s memories of what for him were his golden years as a player. Blessed be childhood, brilliantly immortalized in our memory, serving as inspiration for our sweetest fantasies. The references that dominate the adventure...
    The vast majority of political donations made by members of the media go to Democrats, according to an analysis from Business Insider. Members of the media, including reporters, have donated at least $110,000 to candidates in the 2020 election, with the bulk of the donations going almost entirely to Democrats. According to the Insider’s analysis, donors include staffers at the New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, and Houston Chronicle. They are “among dozens of reporters, editors, and other newspeople who’ve given tens of thousands of dollars to political candidates and causes.” Three journalists at the Marshall Project, a “nonpartisan, nonprofit news organization,” contributed to far-left Democrats this cycle, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), as well as “a political committee led by Democratic Party luminary Stacey Abrams.” Their involvement appears to stand in stark contrast to the code of ethics, which advises journalists to “shun” any “political involvement, public office and service in community organizations if they compromise journalistic integrity.” Even the Marshall Project’s founder and board chairman, Neil Barsky, has himself donated tens of thousands to Democrats, including Joe Biden....
    2020-21 NBA offseason primer: Everything you need to know about the draft, free agency and trade market Ridiculous myths about aging Analysis: Elite investors accessing Trump briefings is everything thats wrong with the stock market Accurate information can be incredibly valuable to investors, especially in the midst of a confusing health crisis threatening the American economy. Unfortunately, access to that kind of intel is unequal. © JOHANNES EISELE/AFP via Getty Images A face mask is seen in front of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on May 26, 2020 at Wall Street in New York City. - Global stock markets climbed Monday, buoyed by the prospect of further easing of coronavirus lockdowns despite sharp increases in case rates in some countries such as Brazil. Over the weekend, US President Donald Trump imposed travel limits on Brazil, now the second worst affected country after the United States, reminding markets that while the coronavirus outlook is better, the crisis is far from over.

            by Anna Lynn and James Agresti  In a Washington Post op-ed titled “More Republican Casualties From Trump’s Coronavirus Denial,” columnist Jennifer Rubin claims that “red states”—specifically Texas, Arizona, and Arkansas—are “paying the price” for their “arrogant and reckless disregard of expert advice.” In concert with Rubin, multitudes of reporters and commentators have declared that Republican governors have worsened the effects of Covid-19 by “denying science” and reopening “too early.” Meanwhile, they have praised Democratic governors, like Andrew Cuomo of NY and Phil Murphy of NJ, for their handling of the pandemic. By misusing anecdotes and stripping data of vital context, these media figures have woven a narrative that is at stark odds with reality. As documented below with credible primary sources, the hard facts show that: the C-19 death rates in Republican states regularly condemned by media outlets remain far lower than in NY and NJ after more than four months of doomsday projections for Republican states.  Republican governors ridiculed by the media have acted in accord with the facts of science. Democratic governors...
