The New York Times, which started publishing on Snapchat Discover on Monday after a couple of years of sending out updates through the regular app, sees a couple of audiences for the new product.

‘Total Fake News Speculation’: Fox’s Hannity Rips NYT Over Report About His ‘Advising’ Trump

sean-hannity-04152015 Fox New’s Sean Hannity is slamming The New York Times on Twitter over a piece which addresses the amount of contact he has with President Donald Trump. Times reporters Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush put out an article detailing how Trump often seeks counsel from friends and advisers who act outside of the White House. Part of the report explores how Hannity consistently offers Trump advice in addition to acting as one of the president’s biggest media boosters. This new report coincides with previous reports suggesting that Hannity was an informal adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign. As it were, Hannity seems to have noticed the article, and he doesn’t approve of it:

NY Times Appears to Forget Its Own Coverage As It Spotlights Comey’s Pre-Election Moves

new-york-times-hed-2013 On Saturday, the New York Times outlined their case on how FBI Director James Comey “shaped the contours, if not the outcome, of the presidential race by his handling of the Clinton and Trump-related investigations.”

The newspaper’s article detailed that their “examination…found that while partisanship was not a factor in Mr. Comey’s approach to the two investigations, he handled them in starkly different ways.”

The Times claimed that “in the case of Mrs. Clinton, he [Comey] rewrote the script, partly based on the F.B.I.’s expectation that she would win and fearing the bureau would be accused of helping her. In the case of Mr. Trump, he conducted the investigation by the book, with the F.B.I.’s traditional secrecy.”

When Director Comey reopened the Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified material, he was apparently “fearing the backlash that would come if it were revealed Continue reading "NY Times Appears to Forget Its Own Coverage As It Spotlights Comey’s Pre-Election Moves"

A new database of fake news sites details how much fakery has spread from Trump v. Clinton to local news

“The reasons aren’t always apparent.” PolitiFact, one of Facebook’s partners in its hoax-combatting program, published a list of 156 “websites where we’ve found deliberately false or fake stories” since beginning the Facebook partnership. The sites are divided into four categories: “Parody or joke sites,” which contain some disclaimer somewhere that they are meant to be satire even if there’s nothing particularly funny about them; “news imposter sites” (“these sites attempt to trick readers into thinking they are newspapers or radio or television stations,” like CNNews3.com, which uses a logo similar to CNN’s); “fake news sites” (“most of these sites join services like Content.ad or RevContent.com that allow them to post a collection of provocative ads to make money off clicks”); and “sites that contain some fake news.” PolitiFact attempted to identify where each site was registered, which was often “exasperatingly difficult” because many of Continue reading "A new database of fake news sites details how much fakery has spread from Trump v.

Trump Slams ‘Failing’ New York Times Over Photo Comparison of New England Patriots Visit

Once again, President Donald Trump is blasting the media over its portrayal of crowd sizes. Trump might have been watching Fox & Friends again earlier today, because on Thursday morning, the show looked at how the New England Patriots are pushing back against a New York Times photo comparison suggesting that the team was more interested in meeting Barack Obama in 2015 than Trump.
