Rogue FBI Claims on Probe of Clinton Foundation Prove False, Reports Say

Rogue FBI agents and possibly FBI director James Comey are engaging in what appears to be a disinformation campaign intended to smear Democrat Hillary Clinton. The latest evidence: explosive allegations that the charitable Clinton Foundation is under “serious investigation” that could lead to a criminal indictment. But two new reports say that no FBI investigation of the Clinton Foundation is currently underway, ruling out any possibility of an indictment....

Has Bill Cosby Gone Off the Deep End? Releases Bizarre Video Message (see!)

Bill Cosby, the once beloved comedian who is now at the center of a huge sex scandal, released a 10-second video today (Mar. 9) that suggests he may be going off the deep end after weeks of unrelenting revelations about drugging and assaulting women. More than 30 women have come forward so far and related eerily similar tales of being drugged and sexually molested by the comedian.

Justin Bieber Hoses GossipCop, ABC News, TMZ on Private Plane Folly

Justin Bieber farted and a slew of web sites said it smell like roses. That’s an apt analogy for Bieber’s claim that he bought a high-priced Gulfstream G650 private jet for a Christmas present. But like Bieber’s farts, it stinks to high heaven. But that didn’t stop a slew of gossip sites from People magazine to ABC News, Fox News, GossipCop, TMZ and dozen of lesser sites from reporting it as fact. An TheImproper investigation, however, flushed that crap right out of the news cycle. This site reported two days ago that Bieber did not own a jet. We did what every other news site should have done–checked with Federal Aviation Administration....

Miley Cyrus ‘Messed Up’ Quotes False; Another Major Media Fail

Miley Cyrus may be a lot of things but she’s not apologetic about her performance at the MTV Music Video Awards, despite interview quotes sweeping the Internet that made her appear remorseful and to blame her on-stage vamping on “so many f–king issues.” The quotes were widely repeated by supposedly even the most “respected” media outlets including ABC news, “Extra-TV,” The HuffingtonPost, a slew of other gossip sites and even MTV, which hosted the VMAs. But none of those sites apparently check out the quotes with Miley or any of her reps....

Diane Sawyer: What the Hell Happened Election Night? (watch!)

Diane Sawyer, usually the picture of sophistication and erudition, was a wreck during ABC’s election night coverage. Did she overmedicate on Zoloft? She slurred words, misstated election results and was just overall goofy as the night proceeded. The 66-year-old news anchor’s behavior has become one of the hottest trending topics on Twitter post-election outside of the immature boo-hooing and denial on Fox News, of course, as GOP candidate Mitt Romney went down in flames. Among the speculation, some Internet wags speculated that Sawyer had one too many cocktails while waiting for the returns to come in. ...
