The Other McCain

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

CNN ‘Stepped Up,’ Covered Avenatti Prison Sentence, MSNBC Didn’t

Credit where credit is due — the Media Research Center’s Curtis Houck notes that CNN covered the story of former Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti being sentenced to prison on extortion charges, while MSNBC continued to ignore Avenatti’s downfall. So CNN (where Avenatti made 122 appearances during his 2018 heyday as an anti-Trump hero) has […]

Joe Scarborough Completely Loses His Mind in Bizarre Televised Breakdown

Before we get into the unfortunate news of a former Republican congressman’s descent into stark screaming madness, I just want to say to our readers: Are you feeling OK? Have you had any unusual stress on your job or problems in your relationships? Because our caring staff here at the McCain Institute for Abnormal Psychology […]

Mask Fetishists Mourn End of an Era

Joe Biden was having a terrible week and, I suspect, James Carville must have advised the White House that it was a bad look for them to be insisting that people keep wearing masks even after they’d been vaccinated against COVID-19. Also, what else could explain why the American Federation of Teachers — the radical […]

Joy Reid Says the Quiet Part Out Loud

Liberals have spent five years ranting about “white supremacy” (when they weren’t busy ranting about “Russian collusion” or accusing Brett Kavanaugh of being a serial rapist) and the rest of us have been left to our own resources to figure out exactly what liberals mean when they accuse Republicans of being “white supremacists.” So now […]

Lincoln Project: ‘Sunk in a Swamp of Complete Moral and Personal Cowardice’

Did you know that, during a three-week period last month, MSNBC had 17 guest appearances by people from the anti-Trump “Lincoln Project”? That’s an awful lot of free publicity for a single PAC run by disgraced former Republican consultants. Oh, did I say “disgraced”? MSNBC hosts did not ask Lincoln Project co-founders about sexual harassment […]

Keep Calm and Vote Trump

Yesterday was a tough day for me. Everything — and I mean, absolutely everything — I saw in the news pointed toward a Biden win. But I am a professional journalist, and I’m not supposed to care who wins elections. It shouldn’t make a dime’s worth of difference to me whether President Trump is re-elected, […]

‘Fact-Based Truth’: MSNBC Demonized Ron DeSantis; Where’s the Apology?

  Mike Barnicle, Morning Joe, Monday, March 23: “Joe, if you talk to a lot of experts — I was fortunate enough to spend most of Friday afternoon around one of the greatest hospitals in the world, Brigham and Women’s here in Boston — you find out their view of what they’re looking at and […]

Joe Biden’s Partisan Media Protection Bubble Has Finally Begun Collapsing

  Let’s be clear what’s going on here: If the liberal media really believed that Joe Biden could beat Trump in November, they would have stonewalled Tara Reade’s accusations forever. But as partisan as they are, they are not blind, and anyone who watched Biden stumbling in every media appearance the past two months can […]
