The double standard our media impose on child sexual abuse is garishly obvious. On Aug. 14, The Washington Post set the stage for the coming American visit of Pope Francis with another splashy front-page story on a man still berating the Catholic Church after being abused by a priest from 1969 to 1976.
But on Aug. 21, after a court sentenced ...Read more
The fascination of the news media with Donald Trump is ironic, to say the least. For people who have long lamented the domination of Big Money in politics, these reporters are presenting Mr. Big Money himself with a ticker tape parade of free media.
It could be considered hypocritical, too. Big Money is a bad thing -- unless they're the ones ...Read more
The churning of market forces in television are once again forcing the question of why Americans are spending hundreds of millions of tax dollars a year on public broadcasting. On August 13, HBO announced it was buying all-new episodes of the iconic PBS show "Sesame Street," delaying their debut on PBS for nine months.
Decades of liberal ...Read more
After six devastating hidden-camera interviews, the best Planned Parenthood and its top-dollar crisis managers can muster in their defense is to protest that they were "heavily edited."
Of course they were. All video is edited. It's why they call it "produced." Without offering evidence of exculpatory evidence withheld, the charge is as ...Read more
It's been six years since a Michael Moore mockumentary struggled at the box office. "Capitalism: A Love Story" grossed a paltry $14.3 million, less than an eighth the take of his hit "Fahrenheit 911." The long wait for the next Moore spectacle is almost over. The day before the next 9/11 anniversary, Moore's new America-bashing film "Where to ...Read more
As she runs to hold on to her base against an openly declared socialist in the Democratic primaries, Hillary Clinton is declaring she intends to go even further than President Obama and his radical executive amnesty efforts. She continues to defend Planned Parenthood even after those horrific videos documented the ghastly sale of baby body parts...Read more
Five years ago, Katie Couric exemplified our secular media's Islamophilia when on an online show at CBS, she proclaimed, "Maybe we need a Muslim version of 'The Cosby Show.' I know that sounds crazy, but 'The Cosby Show' did so much to change attitudes about African-Americans in this country, and I think sometimes people are afraid of what ...Read more
Arrogant liberal journalists naturally assume that conservative talk radio only succeeds in making Americans dumber. They reach this conclusion by avoiding conservative talk radio entirely.
The overwhelming majority would never dare appear on one of these shows and debate the conservative host.
If one of them ever entered the ring with Mark ...Read more
In November of 2002, Washington Post reporter-editor Bob Woodward unveiled excerpts of his latest book, "Bush at War," and created a big stir by revealing that Fox News boss Roger Ailes had sent a "back-channel message" to the Bush White House shortly after 9/11. He had insisted the president talk tough against the terrorists.
The liberal ...Read more
The Center for Medical Progress has now issued a third recording of Planned Parenthood officials explaining their grotesque trafficking in baby body parts. It is even more devastating than the first two.
The "news" media barely covered the second installment. They will probably pass over this one altogether. Trump World is apparently far more ...Read more
The end of the Supreme Court term was depressing for conservatives. The double-whammy of a 50-state mandate for gay marriage and the upholding of Obamacare sounded the alarms for religious freedom. All that unease is measurable.
Credit The Washington Post for doing precisely that. The polling team has just reported, "Liberals have won a string ...Read more
Back in March, the pundits expressed horror at the alleged extremism of the Conservative Political Action Conference.
On ABC, NPR correspondent Cokie Roberts insisted "I think the person that won at CPAC was John Kasich. He didn't show up, and I think that's the wisest thing for anybody to do." ABC pundit Matthew Dowd bizarrely suggested ...Read more
Once again, a courageous group of pro-life activists has produced a damning sting video of Planned Parenthood, and this one has exposed the most outrageous behavior yet. This isn't the abortion conglomerate protecting pimps or statutory rapists as they seek abortions. This is the selling of the organs of babies after they've been killed.
The ...Read more
On the day Scott Walker would announce in Wisconsin that he was running for president, The New York Times offered a typical takedown on the front page. "Admiring voters" found him to be authentic and approachable, but there were two words these fans apparently did not use: "Smart" and "sophisticated."
That might be because liberal snobs at the ...Read more
For decades now, the liberal "news" media have demonstrated a dramatic tilt toward the gay agenda, beginning with their notion that there is no such thing as a "gay agenda." But now, as the Supreme Court has mandated gay "marriage" in all 50 states, the liberal world is celebrating the agenda it has been pushing for decades.
Television coverage...Read more
Hillary Clinton's campaign again signaled its contempt for the press during a July 4 parade in New Hampshire. Aides brought out ropes to cordon off the media. It was the perfect metaphor for a "news" media so cowered by their candidate that they would allow such a humiliating action.
The images lit up Twitter on the holiday, but their ...Read more
To look at virtually anything produced by Hollywood is to register confirmation that the libertine left cherishes clogging our popular culture with vulgarities. The messaging in movies, television and particularly music is punctuated deliberately and unnecessarily with all manner of language designed to offend.
But when it comes to perfectly ...Read more
Back in 2003, the Associated Press gave serious aid and comfort to a vicious campaign against Sen. Rick Santorum over an interview he granted them dealing with the gay rights issue.
AP spent a week promoting calls to remove Santorum from the Senate GOP leadership for this fraction of their interview: "If the Supreme Court says that you have ...Read more
Marc Maron is a stand-up comedian and radio host in Los Angeles. Hipsters love his podcast, mostly interviews with other comedians, which he titled "WTF." On his website, the merchandise includes a coffee mug that says "Pow! I (soiled) my pants." You can understand why he was shocked President Obama wanted to grant him an interview.
As for ...Read more
There is a healthy discussion now underway within Catholic circles asking the improbable question: What is the message of Laudato Si, the pope's new encyclical on the environment? The political left feels not just vindicated but triumphant. Global warming is not just sound science; it is dogma. Conservative skeptics are therefore not just ...Read more
