‘The Most Vulnerable Among Us’

  Ed Driscoll calls our attention to this Daily Caller item: Writers bashed former President Barack Obama after he criticized “woke” social justice warriors during a speech Tuesday. Obama spoke at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago and hit back at alleged activists who attack other people on the internet because of their “flaws,” according to the […]

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. Well, she’s got out a new book — Blowout: Corrupted Democracy, Rogue State Russia, and […]

What Is the Kavanaugh Smear About?

The New York Time revived its smear campaign against Justice Brett Kavanaugh in an article that had to be immediately corrected: The New York Times suddenly made a major revision to a supposed bombshell piece late Sunday concerning a resurfaced allegation of sexual assault by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — hours after virtually all […]

  One of the things about media malpractice is, you may not notice it until the media begin reporting on a subject with which you are directly familiar. Like, have you ever seen a Nick Saban press conference? He obviously hates the media, because nobody knows Alabama football better than the coach, and their “spin” […]

How Anti-Christian Bias in #FakeNews Media Is Encouraging Anti-Semitism

  This is a topic I am reluctant to write about, but in the wake of the Covington Catholic school story, the elephant in the room is now so large that it is more dangerous to ignore it than to mention it: It’s rare to see a major media outlet be so honest about its […]

Can We Deport the NY Times, Please?

It’s difficult to maintain my emotional equilibrium this morning, as my senses are assailed by woeful tidings from every direction. Go take a look at Ed Morrissey’s roundup of how the pull-out from Syria means that our Kurdish allies in the region are now totally screwed. This isn’t some whining #NeverTrump tantrum, but geopolitical realism […]
