Wheel in the Sky Keeps on Turning

Aaron Rupar was among several left-wing journalists whose Twitter accounts got suspended Thursday for promoting the “doxxing” of Elon Musk’s private jet. Having been permanently suspended myself — for nothing — all I can say is, “Gosh, it’s terrible what’s happening to you.” When I say I was suspended “for nothing,” what I mean is […]

The ‘Misinformation’ Crisis

Daniel Greenfield of Frontpage Magazine has a YouTube video discussing how the Left’s recent obsession with “misinformation” follows the pattern of manufactured “crises,” e.g., climate change. Our friend Daniel should get the David Horowitz Freedom Center to provide him with professional video production assistance, but the point he’s making is very important, as he discusses […]

Post-Election Bonfire of Schadenfreude: ‘Hundreds’ Being Laid Off at CNN

It’s a “mostly peaceful” end for the journalism careers of a lot of deadwood on the payroll of the third-place cable news network: CNN started to inform staffers of layoffs, as its chairman and CEO Chris Licht wrote that notices will go out on Wednesday and Thursday. “Today we will notify a limited number of […]

Yet Another Inconvenient Mass Murder Destined for the Media’s Memory Hole

Wednesday I was watching CNN (so you don’t have to) and they were still leading every hour with Tuesday night’s shooting at a Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia. The gunman killed six people and wounded four others before turning the gun on himself and committing suicide, shortly after police arrived. In CNN’s coverage, however, there was […]

Will the Media Ever Admit That Christine Blasey Ford Slandered Brett Kavanaugh?

In my very first post about the subject (“Democrats Pull the Sleaziest Smear in Their Long History of Sleazy Smears,” Sept. 15, 2018), I said that the way Democrats pushed the accusation “stinks […]

Gosh, Some People Seem Awfully Worried About Election ‘Misinformation’ Now

The “cabal” that bragged of foisting Joe Biden on us — because let’s face it, we’re talking about the same people — apparently feel that their power to control upcoming events has been impaired. Twitter layoffs gutted election information teams days before midterms — Washington Post What Twitter’s Shake-Up Could Mean: Midterm Misinformation Run Amok […]

‘Unexpectedly’!

Because nobody could have seen this coming? MSNBC Cuts Ties Unexpectedly With Weekend Host Tiffany Cross Who is Tiffany Cross? When and how did she become an MSNBC host? In July 2020, her book Say It Louder: Black Voters, Our Voices, and the Shaping of American Democracy was published. That same month, Joy Reid’s new […]

Democrats and Media (But I Repeat Myself) Begin Midterm Pre-Mortems

After a few weeks of false hope — a late-summer poll bump that peaked in September and has now collapsed — Democrats and their media allies are beginning to come to grips with the fact that their congressional majority is going to get wiped out in next week’s midterm election. The bottom is dropping out […]
