Over the weekend, the media – especially CNN – had a cow over the size of the crowd at Donald Trump’s inauguration. The beef was over a pair of photographs allegedly showing that the crowd at Barack Obama’s in 2009 was bigger than the one at Trump’s.
The issue with “fake news” like this isn’t which crowd was bigger. The issue is the relentless efforts by the liberal media to constantly undermine and trivialize the Trump presidency by taking his words and actions and twisting them to show the man in a negative light.
“There is an obsession by the media to delegitimize this president,” White House chief-of-staff Reince Priebus rightly declared on Sunday. “And we are not going to sit around and let it happen.”
But what really had the liberal media’s knickers in a knot was White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s declaration on Saturday that “We’re going to hold the press accountable.”
No one’s really ever done that. The press has been free to write and report whatever it wanted – true or not – without being called on it for decades. Well, it’s high time somebody finally called “bull$%&#” on them.
And speaking of lying, CNN itself got caught (again) over the weekend telling a major whopper. On Thursday it tweeted:
“Nancy Sinatra is not happy Trump will use her father’s song (“My Way”) at #inauguration.”
To which Ms. Sinatra responded (since deleted)…
“That’s not true. I never said that. Why do you lie, CNN?”
Because just as a bee stings and a dog bites, that’s what CNN does.

I think the word “up” was inadvertently and mistakenly added to the sentence.

NEVADA NEWS & VIEWS
First, The Nevada “Independent” – edited by insufferable liberal propagandist Jon Ralston – betrayed its independence by hiring Harry Reid’s pollster.
Now, it’s announced adding Heather Murren – former Obama administration appointee and wife of the head of the MGM gaming behemoth that dumped $250,000 into the publication’s restart – to its roster of opinion columnists.
This publication is proving to be about as “independent” as Hillary Clinton is truthful.
