(“When is Donald Trump going to stop embarrassing his friends, let alone the whole country?” Murdoch senior tweeted the day after Trump officially declared himself a candidate.) 







My guess...never.

Fox News owner/mogul Rupert Murdoch instructed then President of Fox News, Roger Ailes, to tilt media coverage against the candidacy of Donald Trump.



Fox News Globalist Rupert Murdoch told Megyn Kelly he would give her a $3M book deal if she attacked candidate Donald Trump from a feminist perspective.  She got her book deal, but the feminist smear campaign did not work in 2016 as it had in 2012.

Sarah Palin is suing the New York Times for defamation over a recent editorial tying one of her political action committee ads to a 2011 mass shooting that severely wounded Arizona Democrat Gabby Giffords 



The paper said Palin incited th​​e shooting through an ad from her PAC that put “Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs.”


In fact, the ad never put Giffords or any other individual in the cross hairs — forcing the newspaper of record to issue an embarrassing correction.



    NY Times Editorial Writer Will Proclaim Ignorance In Response To Palin’s Defamation Lawsuit 


Will the judge believe that NY Times editorial writers are ignorant rubes who don’t read their own paper?


One or more editorial writers at the NY Times, the folks who speak with the paper’s voice of authority on every subject you can imagine, will plead with a judge to believe they did not know the basic facts of a story they were writing about, including facts reported in their own paper! The Times’ defense is: We so dumb.


I find this indescribably delicious, especially given that it was Paul Krugman who used his perch at the NY Times to lead this false charge against Palin back in 2011.
