‘Carly Cut His Balls Off’?

Certainly, many Fox News viewers must have been shocked Wednesday night by Rich Lowry’s comments to Megyn Kelly: “Look Trump attacks everyone but she’s become a much bigger target. And I think part of what’s going on here is that last debate. Let’s be honest, Carly cut his balls off with the precision of a […]

Chuck Todd Creates Controversy by Playing ‘Gotcha’ With Ben Carson

Contrary to anything you see or hear in the media, this is not a story about Ben Carson and it’s not a story about Islam. This is a story about the biased media, who play “gotcha” with Republicans in a way they never do with Democrats: Ben Carson says the United States should not elect […]

Democrats and George Stephanopoulos (But I Repeat Myself)

The “revolving door” between the Democrat Party and the liberal media functions as a full-employment program for party operatives, who can collect paychecks from TV networks for doing the same work they would otherwise do for Democrats.

After graduation, she clerked on the U.S. […]

Congratulations, ‘Dishonest Fascists’ — #GamerGate Destroys Max Read

“Never underestimate your enemy,” is a maxim of military strategy. Before you decide to go to war on the Internet, first consider the fate of Max Read, who was riding high as editor of Gawker until he decided that insulting #GamerGate was a smart move. He chose poorly. Custer at Little Bighorn, the French at […]

The #GamerGate vs. Gawker War

Gawker’s irresponsibly cruel “outing” of a Conde Nast executive — a laughable farce, and yet also an exercise in horrendous sadism — prompted Vox Day to remind his readers of #GamerGate’s “anti-Gawker action, Operation Disrespectful Nod, which has already cost Gawker more than $1 million in advertising dollars.” This would appear to be the kind […]
