Iran Continues Mocking and Humiliating American Leaders

Iran Medals

Accuracy in Media The New York Times continues to misrepresent the Iran deal as a signed document with the potential to motivate moderate Iranians to reform their totalitarian regime. However, it is more than obvious that the P5+1 did not actually sign a deal with Iran, and that this unsigned agreement cannot bring about change in that country. Instead, the deal has emboldened those who hold the reins of … [Read more...]

Obama Continues Caving to Iran While Taking Credit for Diplomacy

Caving

By: Roger Aronoff Accuracy in Media The mainstream media cannot stand that the film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, in depicting the violence in Benghazi and the heroism of the Global Response Staff (GRS), has a straightforward common-sense message.

Benghazi Cover-up Challenged by New Film, More Hearings

"...what difference at this point does it make..."

Iranian Nuclear Deal is a Catastrophic Hoax

Iran Deal

By: Roger Aronoff Accuracy in Media The mainstream media blindly championed the Iranian deal at the expense of reason, celebrating its “signing” and every prospective step for implementation.

CNN Corrects Story About Trump and Biden—Still Gets it Wrong
