My Official #Ferguson Commentary

Stop watching cable TV news. If that commentary sounds familiar to regular readers, it’s because that’s what I said about the Trayvon Martin case. The 2012 Florida shooting controversy dominated headlines for weeks and months, and I don’t remember saying anything else about it until there was a verdict in the George Zimmerman trial: Not […]

The Unspeakably Vile David Brock

The latest news from Evil, Inc.: In a major power play that aligns liberal muscle more fully behind the Democratic Party — and Hillary Clinton — the self-described right-wing hitman-turned-Clinton enforcer David Brock is taking over a leading watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. Brock was elected chairman of the group’s board […]

Israel/Gaza Ceasefire Collapses, Along With Joe Scarborough’s Credibility

The 72-hour ceasefire fell short by about 70 hours: A 72-hour humanitarian cease-fire agreed upon by Israel and Hamas collapsed shortly after it took effect Friday morning. Mortar shells fired from within the Gaza Strip landed near a border-regioning town some two hours after the truce deal brokered by the United States and the EU […]

Nina Burleigh: #WomenAgainstFeminism Is for ‘Pedophiles … Dirty Old Men’ UPDATE: ‘Perverted Rightwing Spite’

@NinaBurleigh publishes an absolutely disgusting libel: Women Against Feminism had, last time I checked, 16,013 followers on Facebook.

Everything about Women […]

CNN Reporter: Israelis ‘Scum’

Media bias? What media bias? CNN has removed correspondent Diana Magnay from covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict after she tweeted that Israelis who were cheering the bombing of Gaza, and who had allegedly threatened her, were “scum.” After being threatened and harassed before and during a liveshot, Diana reacted angrily on Twitter,” a CNN spokeswoman said […]

Fire Can’t Melt Steel, and ‘The View’ Can’t Possibly Become More Ludicrous

They’re bringing back Rosie O’Donnell, because there obviously aren’t enough celebrity conspiracy theorists on network daytime TV, and no one is happier about this news than Allahpundit: To celebrate the occasion, take my arm and stroll with me down memory lane, back to Rosie’s finest hour. Watch the whole clip if you can — she […]

The MSNBC Agenda

This morning I woke up early and switched the TV onto MSNBC — I Watch MSNBC So You Don’t Have To™ — where the Morning Joe crew then proceeded to spend 10 minutes talking about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. You probably missed the minor bit of local news that was the “hook” for this […]
