"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Media as Islamic Publicity Agents

One of the best books you’ll ever read is Thomas Sowell’s The Vision of the Anointed: Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy, and in Chapter 6 (“Crusades of the Anointed”), Sowell observes the tendency of liberals to divide the world into “targets” and “mascots.” For example, the U.S. military and evangelical Christians are common […]

Forgiving Brooke Baldwin

by Smitty Another day, another unfortunate utterance by someone on the Left. Watching the clip, it’s clearly a scripted set-up between her and good ol’ Elijah “fake racial slurs” Cummings. But let us express compassion for poor wee Brooke, a thirty-something special snowflake from the UNC Chapel Hill Department of Commie Propaganda (that is, Journalism). […]

Hey, Remember When CNN Was ‘The Most Trusted Name in News’?

That was a long time ago: Supporters of the Islamic State have taken to Twitter to mock claims the terrorist organisation is luring women into its fold using kittens and Nutella. The original claim was made by CNN’s Newsroom anchor Carol Costello on Wednesday during a piece on how ISIS twists and manipulates its image […]

MSNBC: How Long Until Phil Griffin Offers Keith Olbermann Fellatio?

As much as we hated the King of Bombastic Liberal Self-Righteousness, it cannot be denied that MSNBC’s rating have spiraled downward since the network let Keith Olbermann walk out in 2011. Hate him as much as you want — and I certainly do hate him — Olbermann was a franchise personality, and none of MSNBC’s […]

A Call For A Statute Of Limitations On Cheap Equivalences

That doesn’t mean that all Muslims who see such depictions as blasphemy think the appropriate response is violence; far from it. But a […]

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 […]

CNN: The Homophobia Network?

Layers and layers of irony here: A former CNN employee claims he was fired because he’s gay and wore bright colors and mariachi outfits to work that were deemed “too flamboyant,” according to a $60 million discrimination lawsuit. William Kane, who started working at CNN in 2002, claims nobody at the news network ever informed […]

Like Fish Don’t Notice Water

CNN President Jeff Zucker declares his network won’t “be shamed into” covering a congressional investigation of the Benghazi scandal, as he claims the pressure to cover Benghazi comes from “others who have political beliefs that want to try to have temper tantrums.” Mocking CNN’s bizarre and monomaniacal devotion to the story of a disappeared jet, […]
