BOOM! WaPo’s Dana @Milbank ‘Is Why People Loathe Journalists’

So says Mollie Hemingway (@mzhemingway), reacting to the columnist’s deliberate distortion of a Heritage Foundation event: This, my friends, is why people loathe journalists. They twist and turn and play gotcha games. Also, they make stuff up. A good editor in my past told me that he was always suspicious of reporters who rely on breaking […]

‘Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones, But George Will’s Column Raped Me’

Peter Paul Rubens, Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus (1618) “Feminism is, among other things, a totalitarian attempt to tell us what to think by controlling what we are allowed to say.” – Robert Stacy McCain, May 4 Who is turning rape into a joke? Feminists, by their counterfactual insistence that American university campuses are […]

Terrorism and Euphemism

They’re “gunmen” or “extremists” or “militants,” but have you noticed that no one in the media wants to call them “terrorists”?

Police and army officials say the attack took place Saturday morning […]

Feminists nowadays are up in arms about “rape culture,” but 15 years ago they were defending accused rapist Bill Clinton in no uncertain terms: “I would be happy to give him a blowjob just to thank him for […]

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, […]

Sweet Revenge: @SarahPalinUSA on the Media’s Hillary Double Standard

The ironic payback for Trig Trutherism: Now that liberals want to protect Hillary Clinton from scrutiny and criticism — especially questions about the 66-year-old former Secretary of State’s health — Sarah Palin is there to remind the media of how they treated her: Hey! Hillary’s brain is off-limits! Leave her health records alone! Democrats are […]

David Gregory: He’s So Crazy, He Thinks We’re Still Watching ‘Meet the Press’

The Washington Post reports that NBC hired a “psychological consultant” to interview David Gregory as part of a desperate effort to find out why ratings for Meet the Press have fallen to their lowest point ever — as in, since 1947. The accuracy of the Post‘s reporting has been called into question, However, no one […]
