Iran Nuclear Side Deals Expose Additional Flaws

Iran Nuclear Side Deals

By: Roger Aronoff Accuracy in Media More Democrats are falling in line to support the Iranian nuclear deal, despite recent revelations further exposing the farcical nature of the inspections regime on which it depends. And according to The New York Times, nearly everyone they talk about in this article who either is or might be opposing the deal is doing so because of their loyalty to Israel, or because they … [Read more...]

Clinton Email Scandal Threatens to End Her Presidential Bid

Hillary Clinton

By: Roger Aronoff Accuracy in Media The number of confirmed classified documents found among Hillary Clinton’s emails in a State Department review has climbed to 60, and yet she was joking about it this past weekend in Iowa. “You may have seen that I recently launched a Snapchat account,” said Mrs. Clinton. “I love it. I love it. Those messages disappear all by themselves.” But it may not be such a laughing … [Read more...]

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

cnn_logo-sq

Accuracy in Media When the news media correct themselves, those corrections often remain unacknowledged. This permits a false perception of accuracy. It also allows incorrect, damaging information to be disseminated by news reporters regardless of accountability. CNN, in particular, has adopted a system which informs its readers that an article has been “updated.” What exactly do those updates entail? In … [Read more...]

Krugman and the Times Still Spinning Obama’s Legacy

Krugman-Paul-CEO-World

By: Roger Aronoff Accuracy in Media In the view of The New York Times and other beacons of the liberal media, President Barack Obama’s policies are a resounding success and he rarely makes a misstep. The harmful effects of his policies, as well as his many scandals, must be ignored or covered up with misleading statistics and deceitful reporting that preserve his radical, left-wing legacy, and even make it … [Read more...]

The Real Drama is in the Democratic Primary

Democratic Primary

Accuracy in Media While the attention of the world was on the first Republican presidential debates in Cleveland on Thursday night, the drama in the Democratic Party may soon overshadow anything the GOP has to offer. Look at what’s happening on the way to Hillary Clinton’s coronation in 2016. All of a sudden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), a self-identified “democratic socialist,” is within striking distance in … [Read more...]

The ‘Stop Iran Now’ Rally in Times Square Sent a Powerful Message

Stop Iran Now

Accuracy in Media President Barack Obama’s disastrous deal with Iran paves the way for this totalitarian regime to attain nuclear weapons, ones which Iran’s dictators could then aim squarely at the United States, Israel, and our allies. But the complicit media repeatedly join the administration in championing the deal, which both falsely claim is the only viable alternative to war. In order to stifle … [Read more...]

New Report Confirms Findings of Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi

benghaziliars

Accuracy in Media Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi (CCB) member Clare Lopez believes that in 2011 Hillary Clinton’s State Department was orchestrating its own gun running operation to the Libyan rebels—and that arms dealer Marc Turi has been set up to take the fall for these “illicit arms deals.” “The Justice Department has charged Turi with lying on an export-license application, alleging he hid his intent … [Read more...]

FAA

Accuracy in Media Accuracy in Media Editor Roger Aronoff recently appeared on The Daily Ledger on the One America News Network to discuss an ongoing scandal at the Federal Aviation Administration which has prompted an investigation by the department’s inspector general.

Stop Iran Now Rally in New York’s Times Square Today

Stop Iran Now

Accuracy in Media President Obama was on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Tuesday night, pitching the Iran deal as the best way to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, and claiming once again that it came down to this deal, or war. This week he did an end-run around Congress by going to the United Nations, where the UN Security Council unanimously adopted the agreement between the P5+1 (U.S., England, … [Read more...]

TWA Flight 800 Anniversary Stirs Memories [Video]

TWA800

By: Roger Aronoff Accuracy in Media Friday, July 17th, marked the 19th anniversary of the deaths of 230 people on TWA Flight 800. There remain unaddressed questions about how this jet mysteriously exploded off the coast of Long Island. But the mainstream media aren’t interested in providing the public with much needed answers, pursuing this scandal, or even, really, marking the anniversary of the victims. … [Read more...]

Hillary Clinton’s Lies Are Starting to Catch Up with Her

protecthillary

By: Roger Aronoff Accuracy in Media The mainstream media appear eager to distract from the substantive issues raised by the email scandals continuing to plague Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. One example is the media’s focus on the timeline surrounding a Select Committee on Benghazi subpoena for her emails, and when those emails were deleted. As I recently argued, the media wish that these stories … [Read more...]

Can the Nuclear Deal with Iran Be Derailed?

impeachobama100513

By: Roger Aronoff Accuracy in Media The mainstream media are celebrating, as a deal has been reached between Iran and the P5+1 nations. It appears, however, to be a complete capitulation by the West. CNN described it as “historic,” along the lines of Richard Nixon’s deal with China, which certainly must be music to President Obama’s ears. But even as terms of the deal are starting to emerge, the holes in … [Read more...]

Email Dumps Continue to Undermine Clinton Candidacy

protecthillary

By: Roger Aronoff Accuracy in Media Hillary Clinton’s reputation is taking repeated blows as the drip, drip, drip of email productions from her private email server draw attention to her many lies. The Obama administration has admitted that she did not, in fact, turn over all the necessary emails from her private mail server to the government. It also has released nearly 3,000 pages of emails implicating … [Read more...]

AIM Responds to Supreme Court Decision on Obamacare

Obama's Oath of Office Redux

Accuracy in Media The Supreme Court bent over backwards today in an attempt to save Obamacare from its own tortured language by reinterpreting the statute, making the plain phrase “Exchange established by the state” signify both the state and federal exchanges. The mainstream media, in turn, are triumphal, having helped sway the final decision. We have repeatedly written about The New York Times’ biased … [Read more...]

Media Largely Ignore News of Latest Obamacare Revelation

teapartyobamacare

Accuracy in Media When it comes to MIT economist Jonathan Gruber’s Obamacare role, the media are making sure that the joke remains on us. The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform recently received 20,000 pages of emails of exchanges between this professor and the White House during “the crucial months when [Obamacare] was being crafted and passed,” writes Charles Lipson for … [Read more...]

The Left Falls Victim to Another Hoax that Fits Their Narrative

The View

Accuracy in Media Fake stories about conservatives are often too tempting for members of the news media to pass by, or fact check, and two UK papers were recently caught peddling one such story to their readers. Yet nowhere in their articles does it mention that they had even attempted to contact the subject of their ridicule, Pastor John Hagee of Texas. Both the UK Daily Mail and the UK Mirror published … [Read more...]

Full Court Press is on to Pressure Supreme Court into Saving Obamacare

Stock Photo of the Consitution of the United States and Feather Quill

Accuracy in Media President Obama is once again telling lies about Obamacare while bullying the Supreme Court to decide in his administration’s favor in King v. Burwell, a court case which will likely be decided this month and which has the potential to gut the law’s subsidies. On cue, the mainstream media have marshaled their forces in defense of Obama and his signature legislation. And the media, just like … [Read more...]

UAE Port Agreement: More Clinton Pay for Play?

Photo by David McNew/Getty Images

Accuracy in Media Accuracy in Media often asks whether the news media would have covered a story the same way under President George W. Bush as it does under President Barack Obama. The lease provided to Gulftainer USA, a subsidiary of a United Arab Emirates (UAE) conglomerate called Crescent Enterprises, at the vital national security hub of Port Canaveral, Florida, once again confirms the media double … [Read more...]

The Times’ and the Clintons’ Converging Conflicts of Interest

Hillary Rodham Clinton

Accuracy in Media The apparent conflicts of interest that the various Clinton family initiatives create constitute a shameful example of media complicity with the left and the Democratic Party. Accuracy in Media has written time and again about the incestuous relationships forged between the Clintons and the media. For example, George Stephanopoulos recently interrogated the author of a book critical of the … [Read more...]

Obama Administration Cover-ups Continue

Obama-shooter

Accuracy in Media President Obama’s administration has blocked more than half a million Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests in the last six years, reports WorldNetDaily. This blatant circumvention of the law is causing some in the mainstream media to finally voice their concerns about how President Obama is running the government. That is, unless you’re David Brooks of The New York Times. “And I have … [Read more...]

New York Times Still Deceiving About Obamacare

teapartyobamacare

Accuracy in Media The New York Times is at it again. In a front page story in Tuesday’s print edition, the Times is dishonestly pushing an argument that they hope will result in a favorable Supreme Court decision for President Obama’s so called Affordable Care Act. The mantra repeated over and over again is this: those four words in the Obamacare law—“established by the state”—were actually an accident, a … [Read more...]

FAA Hiring Scandal Barely Registers with the Media

FAA.org

Accuracy in Media The Fox Business Network (FBN) should be congratulated for launching a six-month investigation into the Federal Aviation Administration’s hiring practices, an investigation revealing complicity between the FAA and diversity groups such as the National Black Coalition of Federal Aviation Employees (NBCFAE). The findings were revealed on “The Willis Report” last week on FBN. The … [Read more...]

Mike Morell Attempts to Repair His Damaged Credibility

Mike Morrell

Accuracy in Media Mike Morell, the former Deputy CIA Director and Acting CIA Director, is out with a new book, and has been making the rounds on virtually every TV network. This is supposed to be his time to set the record straight, but he has apparently decided not to do that. Instead, his truthful revelations are mixed in with obvious falsehoods, so it becomes difficult to distinguish one from the … [Read more...]

Stephanopoulos Fiasco is Par for the Course

GeorgeStephanopoulos

By: Roger Aronoff Accuracy in Media What is surprising about the latest George Stephanopoulos controversy is that most of the media are treating it as something unusual rather than an acknowledgement of a problem that’s been plaguing the media for decades. We at Accuracy in Media are happy to see this issue receive the scrutiny it deserves. However, anyone convinced that Stephanopoulos’s ongoing political … [Read more...]

Showdown with Hillary Clinton Over Benghazi

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

Accuracy in Media The liberal media remain derelict in their duty to vet presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s record on Benghazi, just as they have abandoned any pretense of holding the Obama administration accountable for the many “phony” scandals including the IRS scandal, Fast & Furious, or even the VA scandal. We at Accuracy in Media have repeatedly exposed the mainstream media’s reluctance to … [Read more...]

Media’s Ongoing Attempts to Downplay VA Scandal

VA-I-care

Accuracy in Media While some in the media have demonstrated they are willing to challenge the narrative emerging from the Obama administration that downplays ongoing abuses by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), others on the far left such as MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow have cast the administration’s chronic disservice to ailing veterans as a vast right-wing targeting conspiracy. VA Secretary Bob McDonald … [Read more...]

Obama and the Media Still Hiding Immigration Agenda

Obama-hands-folded

Accuracy in Media Once again, the Obama administration is deceiving the courts, and the American people, about its plans for amnesty for millions of current and future illegal aliens. And to make things worse, the Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty, for which President Obama is seeking fast-track authority, would, according to Dick Morris, writing in The Hill, “override national immigration restrictions in the … [Read more...]
