Ben Affleck Makes a Scandal for PBS

The North Korean email hack of Sony continues to haunt Hollywood. The leftist group WikiLeaks recently posted a searchable set of the documents and the London Daily Mail found a new scandal subject: Ben Affleck ... and PBS.

Harvard black-studies professor Henry Louis Gates produces a show for New York PBS superstation WNET called "Finding ...Read more

Hillary's Wacky Poorhouse Claims

While Hillary Clinton hates doing Sunday shows -- as we remember from the weekend after Benghazi -- she did allow her close friend Gov. Terry McAuliffe to appear on "Meet the Press" on April 19. Jaws dropped when NBC host Chuck Todd threw him a real Russert-like hardball, quoting from his 2007 memoir "What A Party!"

"This is Hillary Clinton,"...Read more

A Way for Christian Businesses to Get Back at Left Wing Entrapment

Radical activists in the gay community have put pedal to the metal to force gay acceptance from Christians -- making not only their position but also their tactics anti-Christian. They are deliberately targeting the Christian wedding industry -- the cakemakers, the caterers, the quaint bed-and-breakfast owners, and the like. They are headhunting...Read more

Hillary's Campaign is Already Liberal Media-Assisted

It is fair to say that Hillary Clinton is as liberal as Ted Cruz is conservative. This will explain why our so-called "objective" media are already treating Hillary as the Third Coming (Obama was No. 2) while Cruz merits hide-your-children alarms.

Just the adjectives give it away. Hillary's Twitter launch on April 12 was received with words ...Read more

Liberal Media Actually Not So Liberal

Conservatives know what to expect when the networks create shows about lawyers. From "L.A. Law" to "Ally McBeal," we've observed countless crusading liberal protagonists confront and defeat conniving corporate executives and other corrupt establishment villains.

This seemed to describe "The Good Wife" on CBS over the past five years. But ...Read more

The Unfair Liberal War on America's Persecuted Christians

The Old Media loathes the New Media as unreliable, but have no right to pass judgment. Increasingly, they are prone to leap into news stories based on their own liberal social media networks. Look no further than the new Indiana religious freedom law. They could not get enough of those angry tweets from Hillary Clinton and public-policy geniuses...Read more

Why Does Comedy Central Continue to Air "Roasts" When I Find Them Vicious and Disgusting?

Comedy Central hosted another one of its vicious and disgusting celebrity "roasts" on March 30, with Justin Bieber as the target. During the "pre-show" before the roast, unfunny comedian Jeff Ross arrived wearing a pope costume and accompanied by sexy "nuns" in black habits and fishnet stockings.

Red-carpet host Sarah Tiana introduced him as ...Read more

Why Won't the Liberal Media Laud GOP Stars I Like?

Imagine an eighth grader, presented with a portrayal of Sen. Edward Kennedy, the late patriarch of the "royal family" of American politics. The student would learn nothing but legends about "the greatest senator of all time," as Sen. Ed Markey proclaimed.

On the occasion of the opening of an "Edward M. Kennedy Institute" in Boston, "CBS Evening...Read more

Lewinsky Obscenely Mines Her Humiliation for Profit

TED Talks are a hot liberal video series. The 20-minute talks, usually taped in Vancouver, have become such a viral force on the Internet that NPR now has a weekly "TED Radio Hour."

TED's mission statement proclaims a passionate belief in "the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world." TED offers "a clearinghouse that...Read more

Liberal Newspaper Doesn't Like Conservative Candidate as Much as Liberal Candidate

It's as if they were waiting, breathlessly. The moment Ted Cruz announced his presidential campaign, the national media proclaimed their horror. He was "brash," a "hardliner," an "uncompromising conservative," they warned. ABC anchor David Muir announced his agenda was the usual No list: "Promising no abortion, no gay marriage, no gun control, ...Read more

I Am Angry! A Publication is Not Conservative Enough for Me!

Sound the trumpets. The New York Times announced on March 18 that it is bringing in 20 new online-focused writers as contributors for its op-ed and Sunday Review sections. In an interview, Times editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal claimed, "We were looking for a broad range of viewpoints and subjects and backgrounds and geographical locations...Read more

Is the Liberal Media Going to Bury "Emailgate"?

On March 10, eight days after The New York Times began the scandal over her private email server, Hillary Clinton assembled the press at the United Nations in New York to offer a typically legalistic and crabby press conference lasting only 21 minutes. The first-blush reaction from the pundits? That wasn't good enough. She can't expect the story...Read more

Liberal Media Targets the Saintly Catholic Priest

TV and movie producers rarely focus on Catholic priests in their plots, let alone use them as central characters, as in "The Father Dowling Mysteries" or "Father Murphy" in the 1980s. Maybe that's a good thing, because when Catholic priests are part of the plot these days, there is an unmistakable odor of aggression -- mocking, vilifying, and ...Read more

The Liberal Media, As Always, Calling for Moderation

The liberal media have developed a predictable and equally annoying habit every presidential election cycle. We hear the Republicans are going to be crushed by pandering too much to conservatives. The Democrats are firmly moderate and need a push from the left so they don't forget their "compassion."

So it was with Ronald Reagan and Jimmy ...Read more

I Am Disgusted That My Tax Dollars Fund Art I Disagree With!

Elizabeth Harrington at the Washington Free Beacon offers a familiar old slice of sleaze funded by the federal government. An "investigative theatre" company in New York, The Civilians, has been granted almost $950,000 by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and believe it or not, the National Science Foundation.

Why should the American ...Read more

Obama's Liberal Elite War on Transparency

On Inauguration Day 2009, the White House website declared President Obama's administration would become "the most open and transparent in history." By the end of the next day, Obama had issued high-profile orders pledging "a new era" and "an unprecedented level of openness" across the massive federal bureaucracy.

This has become a cosmic joke....Read more

Why Liberal Political Oscar Speeches Stink

The media noticed that this year's Oscars ceremony contained a lot of political tub-thumping, but they didn't notice that these speeches were predictable and obnoxious left-wing screeds.

They were just "passionate pleas for equality," according to the Associated Press. Actress Patricia Arquette unleashed a tirade on wage inequality for women. ...Read more

The Liberal Media's Obama Love-Fest Continues

Some might insist Barack Obama is a lame duck, but our national media elite still think of him as a very graceful swan. When this man comes under criticism, journalists are incapable of any sense of objectivity, balance or fairness. The accuser must be forced to withdraw the criticism, or be punished.

First, Rudy Giuliani said at an event for ...Read more

Sick Society Rates '50 Shades' Over Our Lord and Savior

Here's one obvious sign that we live in a profane world. "Fifty Shades of Grey," the "mommy-porn" book turned into a movie, complete with its whips and chains and erotic punishment, debuted to far less controversy than "The Passion of the Christ" in 2004.

The media toasted "Fifty Shades" as the biggest February movie opening weekend ever at $83...Read more

Aiming the Liberal Media's Gun at the GOP

The safest bet you can possibly make at the beginning of a presidential election cycle is that the "objective" national media will savage the Republican contenders with "investigative" journalism. Not just one Republican contender, but all the Republican contenders.

It's a bit amazing to look back at 2012 and remember that every Republican ...Read more
