The impeachment trial of President Donald Trump should begin with an indictment of the media. The alleged crime committed by Trump revolves around his request that the president of Ukraine investigate Hunter Biden's shady business dealings with a corrupt Ukrainian oil and gas company when Joe Biden was vice president.
That investigation might ...Read more
Just 10 months ago, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi proclaimed that an impeachment of President Donald Trump would not happen unless there was "something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan." The House vote to impeach Trump was the dictionary definition of partisan -- not a single Republican voted yes. There is nothing compelling and ...Read more
The most abused adjective in political reporting is the label "centrist." It should tell you everything about the politician. Unfortunately, it tells us far more about those applying the label.
The American Conservative Union ratings system has been widely accepted by conservatives as the voting compass from the perspective of the right. ...Read more
Ricky Gervais, the perpetually snarky British comedian, set social media on fire after he mocked arrogant Hollywood in his opening monologue when hosting the Golden Globes.
"So if you do win an award tonight, don't use it as a platform to make a political speech, right?" he said. "You're in no position to lecture the public -- about anything. ...Read more
On Jan. 5, after American drones took out Iranian terrorist mastermind Gen. Qassem Soleimani, CNN's Brian Stelter launched into one of his Sunday-morning sermons, insisting that patriotism flows like a river in America's newsrooms. His definition might vary from yours, however.
Patriotism equals tough questioning, the "Reliable Sources" anchor ...Read more
Hollywood loves taking apart conservatives. So when presented with the idea of men in the highest reaches of the conservative media sexually harassing women at the office, it was manna from heaven.
You'll not find a TV dramatization of Harvey Weinstein's predations ripped from the headlines. There's no movie on the alleged sexual misconduct by ...Read more
The secular media greet Christmas as a shopping season and not as a special time for Christianity. They can devote hours of December "news" to which hot toys or gadgets would make great gifts but not to segments on Christ and his birth.
The same applies to the persecution of Christians. The apathy shown by the pro-"human rights" media here is ...Read more
As we end another year, our popular culture still revolves around President Donald Trump, and our news and entertainment conglomerates continue to be outraged that conservative Christians stick with him, so much so they are summarily ignored. Support him as, say, Franklin Graham and a vast majority of evangelicals have done and ... crickets. But...Read more
The war on Christmas marches on. Secularists -- let's say it: atheists -- are leaving no stone unturned. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch said, "Merry Christmas" in an interview on "Fox & Friends." Leftists pounced, complaining this was a "talking point for the GOP."
New Rasmussen polls show strong majorities favor saying merry Christmas, ...Read more
When The Washington Post infamously posted the motto "Democracy Dies in Darkness" on its masthead after Donald Trump was elected, it was implicit -- The Post will deny it -- that Trump is the enemy of democracy, and of "light" or transparency. So it was sadly poetic that after the House Democrats rammed through such an incredibly partisan ...Read more
The Pew Research Center, firmly ensconced inside the liberal establishment, has a new poll that has the organization worried sick (perhaps not as much as the new USA Today/Suffolk University poll that shows President Donald Trump defeating every single Democratic presidential opponent). Pew is concerned and confused about a dramatic difference ...Read more
A few weeks ago, Rep. Devin Nunes appeared on Mark Levin's Fox News show, "Life, Liberty & Levin." Near the end, he talked about how he and his staff put out a memo in early 2018 "to expose the counterintelligence malfeasance that was occurring in the FBI" in the search for Russian "collusion" with Donald Trump. The media did all kinds of ...Read more
Over the last few years, journalists have responded to accusations of "fake news" with arrogant proclamations that they are the misunderstood Guardians of Truth and Providers of Fact. But not every news story is a perfectly baked slice of Facts or Truth. Sometimes reporters merely recount what they heard but what they were told was wrong.
We ...Read more
Abortion is the highest expression of feminism. It's the only concern of feminists. Just ask the first lady how many feminists came to her defense after her son's name was dragged through the mud on Capitol Hill. Ask Kellyanne Conway how many stood behind her when she was insulted as a terrifying killer clown on "Saturday Night Live." Ask ...Read more
The other day, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki subjected herself to a hard-hitting interview with Lesley Stahl on CBS' "60 Minutes." Stahl lectured her for allowing "harmful" or "hurtful" speech to be posted on her platform without any fact-checking. Welcome to the latest demonstration of the traditional "news" media's merciless pounding away at ...Read more
ABC aired The American Music Awards on Sunday, Nov. 24, and the big surprise was that none of the featured pop stars launched into a political diatribe about the horrors of the Trump era. The shock factor was reserved for one of the most vicious assaults on God ever projected by Hollywood.
One of today's most popular singers among teenagers is ...Read more
Billionaire "news" media mogul Michael Bloomberg is running for president. How will his Bloomberg News empire cover this?
Bloomberg News posted an article touting how much trouble President Donald Trump is in. It lustily listed all his scandals: "Lawmakers and prosecutors are looking at whether he abused the powers of the presidency, obstructed...Read more
Celebrity testimony is an age-old political stunt on Capitol Hill. If you want the press at your hearing, you lunge at the chance to have a star athlete, or a famous singer or actor, bring some zing to your issue. Democrats do this better because they have a lot more friends in Hollywood and they're always more willing to push the envelope with ...Read more
Rep. Adam Schiff's Democratic impeachment hearings are under way -- airing live all over the dial -- and the liberals are quite upset that America couldn't care less. NBC News spurred rage on Twitter for daring to admit online that the first two witnesses "lacked the pizzazz necessary to capture public attention."
The Washington Free Beacon ...Read more
Disney is launching its Disney Plus video streaming service, which promises to be tremendously popular, which is unfortunate. "Experts" from the enlightened side of the tracks are unrolling their grievances about how the Disney film catalogue is full of racism, sexism and loathsome bigotry of all sorts.
It was only a matter of time, wasn't it? ...Read more
