Is MSNBC Too Pro-Israel?

Rula Jebreal (@RulaJebreal) is part of the unhinged anti-Israel fringe on the Left — I call them “the Sirhan Sirhan wing of the Democrat Party” — that has finally spilled over into public view on MSNBC: An MSNBC contributor used her appearance on the cable news channel Monday to sharply criticize its coverage of the […]

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.

But apparently there is someone in Florida who feels otherwise: FORT MYERS — Fort Myers police are trying to find the killer of a transgender woman whose body was found burned behind a garbage bin Thursday. Police on Friday identified the victim as Eddie James […]

Ace on @Milbank: ‘Biased and Giddily Ignorant … Proud to Know Nothing’

Last night, I hit Dana Milbank’s cheap smear of a Heritage Foundation panel about the Benghazi cover-up and thought I’d done a good job. This morning, I woke up and saw Ace’s treatment of the same story and was awed by the work of the master: Milbank’s original deception is reporting this woman’s charge — […]
