Accuracy in Media

Accuracy in Media Editor Roger Aronoff was a guest on “Cavuto Coast to Coast” on April 8 on the Fox Business Network. The topic was how the mainstream media are covering the 2016 presidential candidates.

“It’s a complete double standard,” said Aronoff. “The questions that are asked of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders just pale in comparison to the treatment that [Ted] Cruz and [Donald] Trump get, and just in general.”

As we have reported, news media elites lob softball questions to Democrat candidates, staging love-ins which provide favorable free coverage for their campaigns. Meanwhile, this same news media have practically nothing but criticism and derision for the Republican candidates.

“Her numbers are so high on [untrustworthiness], as are Trump’s,” said Aronoff. “But, again, it’s always emphasized about Trump and the Republicans, and how unlikeable Cruz is.”

The mainstream media have gone to great efforts to protect President Barack Obama’s reputation. “…there’s no one who’s been a greater beneficiary of President Obama’s recent complaint about the news media not digging enough, asking the tough questions, challenging the accuracy of statements—there’s been no greater beneficiary than he himself,” said Aronoff.

“…a lot of people who do just get their news from The New York Times and NBC, they aren’t even aware” of what’s really happened with this administration, argued Aronoff. “They believe that this has been a scandal-free administration, overlooking IRS, Benghazi, Hillary’s emails.”

    “…a lot of people who do just get their news from The New York Times and
    NBC, they aren’t even aware” of what’s really happened with this
    administration, argued Aronoff. “They believe that this has been a
    scandal-free administration, overlooking IRS, Benghazi, Hillary’s
    emails.”

    Perfect example of how ridiculous AIM is. People are, in fact, aware of the IRS and Benghazi “scandals”. It’s only the right wing zealots who get their information from AIM who don’t realize that these “scandals” have been thoroughly investigated and that the president has been 100% cleared of wrongdoing. Intelligent people are sick and tired of idiots like Kincaid and Aronoff lying about the facts. As per the emails? The right wing noise machine has steadfastly refused to report the actual facts. Did Clinton use personal email accounts when she shouldn’t? Yes. Did she do so for nefarious reasons? No. No, she didn’t. And that’s been proven.

    Accuracy is Media is nothing but right wing blather. When one of its representatives accuses the media of bias, it’s the height of nonsense. No one takes you people seriously…except for right wing nutjobs like yourselves. When Trump gets obliterated in November, you’ll blame everyone….but yourselves. Enjoy your delusions.

    Our Pravda media–they are NOT reporters and they are not journalists–love that lie about The Mole’s “remarkably scandal-free administration.” I have some land and a bridge I’d like to sell you if…
    No college records. No foreign student visa. No medical records. No reporting of Moochelle’s $300,000 do-nothing hospital job. No reporting of the ‘bommas’ crooked house deal in Chicago.
    Fast & Furious. “The cops acted stupidly.”
    Mr. President, do you know what happened?
    No, but…
    Continue for seven+ years. Suicidal Rules of Engagement for our troops. Benghazi. Murdering Ghadaffy. Overthrowing a legitimate government. Giving the Muslim High Sign to gatherings of potentates who know what it means. Obamacare, a price, access, quality, and freedom disaster of unheard-of proportions, just getting started. Congress, POTUS, & SCOTUS conveniently exempt. Congressional staffers get a 10 grand stipend to help them pay. Citizens get…the shaft.
    Illegals get to drain the Social Security non-trust fund. No fund. No trust.

    If we had a real FCC every network and 95% of the newspapers would have their licenses or US Citizen cards pulled because what they say about their Favored Politicians–R or D–is nothing but agitprop.

    The US media are guilty of, at best, nonfeasance, misfeasance, and malfeasance of duty.

    Then the Islamomole CIA director chimes in on something beyond his pay grade. Guess what, Brennan, you’re out on Jan 20 and you need to be investigated.

    Welcome to the Soviet Union.

    It’s very nice. It’s called the real world. You should visit sometime.

  • D. G. Williams

    I am very aware of all the Clinton scandals. You might try to do a little research and not take my word for it. Investigate these scandals: Whitewater, Rose Law Firm (fraud, conflict, billing records), Travelgate, cattle futures, death of Vincent Foster (the man who knew too much, all his files disappeared before scene was secured), sex scandals (Hillary tried to smear and destroy several young women without placing any blame on her husband when these young women had no power or money), pardongate, lies, renting out the Lincoln bedroom, contributions from illegal foreign sources, Clinton Foundation. There are more.

    Got Kool-aid?

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Let’s see. YOU are in the tiny, marginalized group that people point and laugh at. YOU are the Kool-Aid drinker. YOU believe nonsense that has been thoroughly proven false. YOU are the nutjobs. Have a nice day.

  • Gringo_Cracker

    I’ll take that as an emphatic “yes.” Thanks!

  • Linda S.

    No, You are the NUT JOB!! Thanks, I will have a nice day!!!

  • IronChefSandwiches

    It was an emphatic “no” and you know it. I like your name, though.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    I’m guessing it’s easy to have a nice day safely cocooned in your “crazy right wing nutjob” bubble.

  • Linda S.

    Wow you amaze me by saying nothing!! What is your point?? By calling me a “crazy right wing nut job” make you feel good? If so, hope you feel real good buddy!!

  • IronChefSandwiches

    “No, You are the NUT JOB!! Thanks, I will have a nice day!!!”

    This was the first thing either of us said to the other. It came from you. YOU decided to enter this conversation.

    And BTW, when I have time, I plan to respond to D. G. Williams’ nonsense post from above. “Saying nothing”? I don’t have time right now for a full response. I won’t forget though.

  • moxie456

    IronChefSandwiches, interestingly, you have such distain for the conservative commenters here, marginalizing every thought put forth, yet you respond repeatedly with your own inimitable biased blather. What gives ICS? Do you ever have discussions ‘across the aisle’? I shall not assume your response but curiosity compels me to ask.

  • Linda S.

    Who cares at this point. Please do not bother to respond, it’s just a bunch of none sense now. No one is getting anywhere at this point!

  • Richard Hellstrom

    Isn’t it kind of odd that John David Podesta who is the Chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign openly supports radical Islam and Jihad !!!!! – The White House , Obama , CAP , Bernie Sanders , George Soros , John David Podesta and Hillary Clinton all seem to be in some form of opposition to American policy under the dictatorship of George Soros who is known to donate up to 526 lobbies and promote both candidate’s in an election. Which is the case here ! See Articles –
    The Center for American Progress’ Jihad Against the Free World – December 29, 2011 Daniel Greenfield – Bernie’s Billionaires — Cliff Kincaid — August 24, 2015 – The Hidden Soros Agenda: Drugs, Money, the Media, and Political Power –
    Cliff Kincaid — October 27, 2004 – Top 10 Reasons George Soros Is Dangerous by Human Events – George Soros and John Kerry — Cliff Kincaid — October 18, 2004 Sanders supported Bill Clinton’s 1999 Kosovo War.

    Bernie Sanders – One of his advisers quit in protest over the support and Sanders had anti-war activists who occupied his office in 1999 arrested. He did not support a vote in Congress to oppose the war in Afghanistan and voted to continue appropriations to support the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2003 he backed a resolution supporting Bush’s war in Iraq and his expansion of the war on terror at home and abroad.

    “Sanders has not been an antiwar leader. Ever since he won election to the House, he has taken either equivocal positions on U.S. wars or outright supported them,” writes Ashley Smith.

    Let’s see. YOU are in the tiny, marginalized group that people point and laugh at. YOU are the Kool-Aid drinker. YOU believe nonsense that has been thoroughly proven false. YOU are the nutjobs.

    Everything listed above that you accuse those who don’t agree with you of being, liberals like you are guilty of being yourselves. You project your own attitudes onto your opponents and falsely attribute those attitudes to them, plain and simple.

  • The_Northwesterner

    Truth be told, ICS is a crazy left-wing nut job who enjoys projecting his own attitudes onto those who don’t agree with his liberal opinions.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    The right wing base is the minority. Your inability to see that is a big part of your undoing. Maybe…just maybe…when the GOP gets trounced…AGAIN…this November, you’ll wake the hell up. Probably not, though.

  • The_Northwesterner

    The right wing base is the minority. Your inability to see that is a big part of your undoing.

    No, it’s the left-wing base that is the minority and it’s your inability to see that which will be your undoing (along with every other liberal currently involved in trying to undermine America and its values).

    Maybe…just maybe…when the GOP gets trounced…AGAIN…this November, you’ll wake the hell up.

    Not gonna happen, junior. The public has finally had enough of liberals imposing their wishes on it against its will and it’s the Donkeycrats that will not only get trounced in November (as they were in the midterms two years ago), but decimated. Eight years of Donkeycrat rule under an illegal occupier of the White House who was never qualified to run for President in the first place is eight years too long. When that happens, it’s you who needs to wake up.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    You just keep illustrating my point for me. Thank you. Democrats have won five of the last six presidential elections and only 1 or 2 of those were close. We’re 8 months away from making it six out of seven. If YOU’RE majority….explain that. LOL You are SO blinded with your silly ideology that you can’t see what’s right in front of your face. Trump is KILLING your cause. And YOU, you personally, are helping him do it. God, this is fun to watch.

    Actually, journalism has lost its credibility.

    Actually,
    it never had much to start with. Its pretensions, as an institution to
    educate and inform, on which democracy depends, just doesn’t hold up on
    close examination. It may well explain the demise of the system. It
    has proven incapable of confining itself to reporting timely and factual
    narrative. Never did. Early on, it tasted power, and learned to
    aspire, to persuade, even control, the duly elected to pursue the agenda
    it saw fit to present to a gullible public.

    No
    longer can the profession – if it ever could – be trusted to surface
    accurate information critical to the functioning of individuals and
    government. It merchandises politics with the same verve of a
    streetwalker seeking to sate puerile appetites- those more sensuous than
    the sensible. And it pursues its trade mainly for three things – ego,
    money, and power. The selected facts, gossip, and innuendo it lards
    into what it cooks up for public consumption, define its distortions.

    To
    get the attention of a mule, sometimes it is necessary to hit it on the
    head with a two-by-four. The “mule” actually is the credulity of the
    public. The “profession” left the barn long ago, leaving its
    word-stream of steaming detritus for history to muck out
    for significance. And when journalism fails in its proclaimed role to
    report “the facts” and tell “the truth” it excuses its failings citing
    past iconic failures. e.g., Adams vs. Jefferson – as if their
    manipulations paper over the deceit of present “professional”
    practitioners.

    Journalism,
    and present-day media, roil in a product of the towering commercial
    success of past proprietors and staff, like Hearst, Pulitzer,
    Sulzberger, and Murdoch, or Mencken, Murrow, and Pyle. Their
    fingerprints and failings are reflected in past advocacies and
    oversights. The sinking of the Maine, the Tong-kin Gulf and, Benghazi
    stand out along with purposeful, if not selective, blindness and
    silences reporting the Holocaust, wars, and social values. Regional
    economic interests and opinion color reporting and editorial
    conclusions. Like the drip-drip of Chinese water torture, the public
    suffers the pain and loss of each misconception as reports filed drill
    down into the open wound of the targeted skull.

    Memory
    is short. Appreciation fades. History is replete with the ruins of
    civilizations that came and went with the development and growth of
    powers that overstepped their reach, and like old soldiers, faded away.
    Human culture and forms of governance, like Icarus, yearning to fly,
    fashioned wings with feathers and wax, soared, flew too close to the
    Sun, lost cohesiveness, disintegrated, and plunged to death below.
    Mankind aspires to rule over Nature, but humanity turns out to be overly
    ambitious. Like the Devil in the Old Testament, trying to be God is a
    bit much.

    The
    U.S. is largely history’s present iteration of humanity’s evolving
    effort to survive. And like civilizations in the past, It may well be
    finding itself at a precipice – so to speak – with its “tit in the
    wringer” having its laundry wrung out for the future to dry out in the
    sun to clothe whatever follows. The dangers being faced are large and
    growing. Extinction, like that of the dinosaurs, is in play.

    In the meantime, it deserves better journalism.

    You’re going to look more and more like the idiot each day come November, Chemboy. Now quit slacking off, get up and walk your 300-pound self over to the podium, teach your classes and get off the discussion boards.

  • Matthew (Mod)

    And I don’t care if you reply to me. It’ll probably be muffled as your face is in Bun E. Carlos’s butt.

    You really wish to know what the world thinks of our government. Go online and link to a foreign news service. England or Israel come to mine. The world laughs at the US of A.

  • The_Northwesterner

    You just keep illustrating my point for me. Thank you.

    No, I’m not, and you’re not welcome.

    Democrats have won five of the last six presidential elections and only 1 or 2 of those were close.

    No, only four of the last six elections were won by the Donkeycrats (you’re forgetting 2000 and 2004, which the GOP under George W. won), and only two of those were won legitimately (the last two, both illegally “won” by the unqualified Barack Obama, were obtained through voter fraud, vote rigging and intimidation by Obama supporters and lack of vetting of Obama’s qualifications).

    We’re 8 months away from making it six out of seven.

    No, you won’t. The people have become sick of the Donkeycrats thanks to the corruption of the illegal Obama regime and they’ll get turfed from the White House in November.

    If YOU’RE majority….explain that.

    How about you explain this – Donkeycrat corruption.

    LOL You are SO blinded with your silly ideology that you can’t see what’s right in front of your face.

    That really applies in your case with liberalism.

    Trump is KILLING your cause. And YOU, you personally, are helping him do it.

    Wrong on both counts. Donkeycrat corruption and and all-too-complicit liberal media are colluding to try to kill the conservative cause, but they’re not succeeding (because the public is finally waking up to the damage the Obama regime and its sycophants have done) and they know it, that’s why they’re getting increasingly desperate.

    God, this is fun to watch.

    It won’t be fun for you to watch when the Donkeycrats get wiped out at the voting booths in November.

  • The_Northwesterner

    Any credibility journalism ever had got flushed down the toilet once liberals infiltrated the media and declared themselves the self-appointed “guardians” of journalistic “integrity” (ironic, considering liberalism has no integrity).

  • IronChefSandwiches

    LOLOLOL The first rule of Right Wing Nut Jobs is to not know they’re nuts. Yes, I misspoke about the presidential elections. I was referring to the popular votes, which the Democrats have won five of the last six times.

    As far as blaming the media, corruptions, voting fraud etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum? Blah blah blah. You refuse to look in the mirror and accept that you are the minority with your backwards views. The majority just laugh at you. As do I.

  • The_Northwesterner

    LOLOLOL The first rule of Right Wing Nut Jobs is to not know they’re nuts.

    No, that’s actually the first rule of left-wing nutjobs, and that fits you and your type to a T. And incidentally, anyone who uses “LOL” in a post the way liberals like you do only shows themselves as immature – it’s like the written equivalent of the sound made by Jerry Mouse when he laughs in the Chuck Jones-produced Tom and Jerry cartoons from the 1960s.

    I was referring to the popular votes, which the Democrats have won five of the last six times.

    No matter, George W. still won the presidency in 2000, despite efforts by the Donkeycrats to steal the election that year for Gore through illegal manipulation of the vote in Florida, which was thankfully stopped by a SCOTUS judge.

    As far as blaming the media, corruptions, voting fraud etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum? Blah blah blah.

    All of it true, but true to form for you liberal types, you dismiss it and refuse to accept responsibility for your actions.

    You refuse to look in the mirror and accept that you are the minority with your backwards views.

    No, that really applies to liberals like you, as always.

    The majority just laugh at you. As do I.

    That also applies to you and your ilk – the majority (meaning conservatives, who outnumber liberals by far) are the ones laughing at you and your feeble attempts to twist the overall narrative to suit your preferences. It’s no wonder right-minded folks (that is, not liberals) consider liberalism a mental disorder.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    You literally have no arguments. You just use “I am rubber. You are glue.” That doesn’t work when adults debate things. Go back to Mom’s basement and watch your Fox “News”.

  • The_Northwesterner

    You literally have no arguments. You just use “I am rubber. You are glue.”

    I do have arguments, you just choose to ignore them because like all liberals, you hate the truth.

    That doesn’t work when adults debate things.

    Then what’s your excuse, junior? Odds are that you weren’t even born yet when 9/11 happened. You’re in way over your head on this site.

    Go back to Mom’s basement and watch your Fox “News”.

    Take your own advice, kid, and substitute Sesame Street.
