The Daily Wire’s Candace Owens said tweets from Washington Post columnist Karen Attiah about Queen Elizabeth II and George Floyd prove an obvious and inherent bias. 

During her podcast Wednesday, Owens said Attiah tweeted that Black and brown people around the world who were subject to horrendous cruelties and economic deprivation under British colonialism are allowed to have feelings about Queen Elizabeth. 

“So, the idea here is that Black Americans have been subjected to horrendous cruelties under British colonialism. Ok, I got it, Karen. Now, what were your thoughts on George Floyd?” 

Owens reminded her listeners that Attiah was sympathetic to George Floyd’s case. Tweeting how she can recall when Floyd was crying out for his mom when he was under the knee of officer Derek Chauvin. 

“First, fact check. I should remind you that regarding calling out for his mama, his girlfriend who was white testified on the stand that she was mama,” Owens said. “Floyd had called his girlfriend mama in previous arrests, and she testified to that fact.” 

Owens said while Attiah tweeted that Floyd should receive Times “Person of The Year” Attiah branded Queen Elizabeth a terrible person in which Black people have suffered tremendously. 

“George Floyd, how many arrests did he have? Nine in total?” Owens said. “If you talk about this and you’re black like me, they (media) call you a slave trader or Uncle Tom.”

    WOW Candace Owens is a MAGA’s dream and the proud boy’s pride. Shameful! I remember how she berated Briona Taylor also and those cops are now charged. What a shame.

Keith Olbermann: American Journalism ‘Re-Invented’ During Trump Presidency

“The overwriting principle used to be: get a scoop, get in the paper or on the air as soon as possible because that’s your job, and that’s your only actual value to society as well.”

During his Countdown with Keith Olbermann podcast Friday, the former cable news host slammed a recent opinion from Politico’s John Harris that Americans need more journalists like Maggie Haberman, among others.

Olbermann has been critical of Haberman’s decision to withhold important facts in relation to the former President Donald Trump and save them for her upcoming book rather than report them in The New York Times.

“What Harris does not understand is American ‘journalism’ did re-invent itself,” Olbermann said. “The overwriting principle used to be: get a scoop, get in the paper or on the air as soon as possible because that’s your job, and that’s your only actual value to society as well. It is also — and I speak as somebody who broke a lot of sports news including the Wayne Gretzky trade and Michael Jordan’s first dalliance with a comeback — it is the joy of doing the journalism. You have the story, and nobody else does!”

He continued by saying Harris and Haberman believe the point of American journalism is not to inform the public but rather how much money you can make in the process.

Haberman’s book “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America” is expected to hit bookshelves on Tuesday, October 4th.

Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is joining his brother Chris in the news media world as the politician is launching a political action committee and a podcast. 

“I am starting a political action committee to elect the right people to office,” Cuomo said (h/t CNN). “We do not need more panderers. We need producers. We need people committed to fight for change and who get results.”

The video also featured familiar criticism of social media, which he has often blamed for fueling the backlash the led to his resignation, which effectively halted state lawmakers’ plans to impeach and remove him from office.

“It’s a Twitter mob, but the mob has power and many politicians and press are afraid to challenge it lest the mob turn on them,” Cuomo added. 

Cuomo’s podcast intends to dive into what he believes is the truth and how the platform will differ from what is already out there. 

“This forum will be different. My intention is to speak the full truth, unvarnished, from the inside out, frank and candid,” Cuomo said. 

“As a person who’s been in the room many times for many years and knows these people and knows their games, and as a person who actually did the job.”
