Media roots for North Korea

When the president called the media the enemy of the state, the media howled -- and then proceeded to prove his point by siding with our adversaries.

The latest example is the media fawning over Kim Jong Un's sister at the Winter Olympics. This is of course a Democratic Party talking point possibly hatched by John Podesta, but the media's embrace of the sister of a monster like Kim Jong Un would embarrass the devil.

In promoting her, they ignore the reality that North Korea is a police state that starves its people into submission.

To get around the media, Free USA posted a video, "Sol Kim is the son of Kim SangDuck (Tony Kim), 59, who is an American who was detained by North Korea authorities at Pyongyang International Airport on April 22, 2017."

That's the news they choose not to report.

Instead, we get this from CNN: "If ‘diplomatic dance’ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un’s younger sister would be favored to win gold. With a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea’s presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games."

The headline gushed: "Kim Jong Un’s sister is stealing the show at the Winter Olympics."

CNN loves dictators, OK? Its Baghdad bureau served as a PR tea, for Saddam Hussein from 1991 to 2003 as people like Peter Arnett reported Fake News such as the US bombing a "baby milk factory."

That is still the news the people at CNN choose to report.

And it is not just CNN. The Washington Post reported, "The ‘Ivanka Trump of North Korea’ captivates people in the South at the Olympics."

The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, ABC, NBC, and NPR went all-in on praising the top woman in a regime so brutal that not only did Kim Jong Un execute his uncle, he did it with an anti-aircraft gun in front of family and friends.

In a backlash, people online are mocking CNN.

We do not have a free press.

We have a one-party press that seeks to undermine the legitimacy of a duly elected president. In light of this, we really should re-visit the protections we give the press from product liability (also known as libel).


From Leslie Eastman's review at Legal Insurrection:
Surber, a recovering journalist with over 30 years of experience, has been cataloging the #FakeNews that has been regularly offered as serious analysis of President Donald Trump’s actions, policies, and opinions. He has brought his enormous collection together in the longest, most serious book he has yet written: Fake News Follies 2017.
"Fake News Follies of 2017" is available on Kindle and in paperback.

Autographed copies are available. Email me at for details. I am including a "director's cut." I'll email you back the original Chapter 1 that I cut because while the chapter was amusing, it really had nothing to do with the "Fake News Follies of 2017."

Ben Garrison did the cover and I am so happy with it. I told him what the book was about, sent him a copy of the manuscript, and he came up with a perfect cover. I am so pleased.


  1. North Korea's Ivanka? Damn glad I don't live there. Cause that bitch is a skank ho.

  2. The enemedia raises its ugly heads again. Not that we needed reminding, but...

  3. The limbo bar is one inch off the ground but the MSM still goes under it with ease. They can still go lower.

    Its about Your New Book, Don!

  5. And Michelle Obama was the most beautiful first lady in their memory.

  6. but the media's embrace of the sister of a monster like Kim Jong Un would embarrass the devil.

    They fawned over HiLlARy, the devils evil sister.

  7. What they are doing is not fawning, it's colluding. It's all propaganda, all the time. I'm not watching or reading anything about the Games (haven't paid any attention to them since the days of Jim McKay on ABC), just wishing good luck to the US athletes who have toiled for years in obscurity.

  8. Saw a TV today. NBC was doing a bit on Buddhist monasteries in Korea, which is one of the most Christian countries in the world, which you would never find out by watching TV

  9. The sure sign of a failing “serious” news orgainization is when people begin to prefer laughing at it to arguing with it.

    1. Some things are just to humorous to pass up.
