NY Times Prints Fawning Profile of MSNBC Host Rachel Maddow

  For two years, Rachel Maddow’s show was about one thing: “Russia! Russia! Russia!” She hyped Robert Mueller’s investigation as the silver bullet that would slay the Trump werewolf, and when Mueller failed, Maddow’s ratings slumped and have never recovered.

Racist Attack on Child Makes National News, Turns Out to Be a Hoax

  Gosh, I wonder why this story was considered so newsworthy?

    Ashleigh Shackelford (@ashleighthelion on Twitter) has described herself as “a queer, nonbinary Black fat femme writer,” complaining in 2016 she was “always scripted as the angry Black bitch” in her “organizing spaces.” As a one-woman embodiment of the identity politics that now defines the Democrat Party, Ms. Shackelford has few rivals, which may […]
