NBC late-night comedian Seth Meyers recently dedicated one of his "comedy" diatribes to denouncing "scaremongering about socialism."
Liberals have a right to lecture us on some things, but scaremongering ain't one of them. These are the same people who relentlessly scaremonger the American people about "climate change."
In a recent video to ...Read more
A bold new crew of radicals swept into Congress to remake environmental policies, and the news media immediately called out their poisonous and extreme proposals.
If you're thinking about this freshman class of knuckleheads who has given us the 2019 "Green New Deal," the answer is no. We're not talking about them.
We're talking 1995, when Newt...Read more
The liberal desire to rebut President Trump is so overwhelming that they're now "fact-checking" him live or the moment he utters his last sentence. There is an Official Democratic Politician Rebuttal of the State of the Union, but why bother? They need only give links to national "news" sites, since the "news" anchors will offer their "context" ...Read more
The government shutdown ended -- at least temporarily -- so the two sides could negotiate on border security. It's nonsense, of course. Pelosi and Co. has made it abundantly clear before, during and since the shutdown: There will be no border wall funding, period.
They are mandated to take this extremist position because it is the extremists ...Read more
It's hard to fathom in this supercharged atmosphere, but politics actually has been more tumultuous than it is today (see: War, Civil). On the other hand, the war to define -- or, better put, redefine -- American culture has never been more ferocious. Its militancy has reached the point where many on the libertine-left media are aggressively, ...Read more
In a widely praised National Review article excoriating the media, Charles C. W. Cooke writes, "Sometimes consciously, but most often unwittingly, journalists treat Democrats as normal and Republicans as abnormal and proceed accordingly in their coverage." To put that another way, the "news" routinely suggests the Republicans are wildly ...Read more
The National Football League is back on top of the ratings heap after both conference championship games were so competitive they spilled into overtime.
Sunday's New England Patriots-Kansas City Chiefs game drew 53.9 million viewers to CBS -- a shocking 27 percent increase from last year and the most-watched NFL game outside of the Super Bowl ...Read more
The last few days have been absolutely terrible for the reputation of the badly named "mainstream media."
The myth that they tried to build for themselves after the 2016 election -- that the American people were too prone to misinformation from malignant (and often foreign) actors in social media and needed a sober, factually meticulous "news" ...Read more
So who is the mastermind at Gillette who came up with the idea that the best way to sell men's razors is to insult the customers with condescending liberal propaganda about "toxic masculinity"? Is pandering to the perpetually angry feminists in the media the way to grab positive "news" coverage? Is online buzz the goal? If so, it must also be ...Read more
The most absurd and improbable New York Times headline was published in the Sunday Review this week over a magnum opus by columnist Frank Bruni: "Will the Media Be Trump's Accomplice Again in 2020?"
You read that correctly. The real collusion in the 2016 election was between Donald Trump and his enablers in the press.
Bruni's subhead is "We ...Read more
Anyone catching the television ads for the Dick Cheney-trashing movie "Vice" found a heavy promotion of the surprising six Golden Globe nominations it received from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The affirmation also became the "news hook" for press interviews with the director and the actors to weaponize it politically.
Sadly for ...Read more
The media have spent the last two years arrogantly proclaiming that they are the urgently needed public servants who would boldly challenge power and ask the tough questions. But does that boldness continue when the Democrats win some power back? It doesn't look like it. Democrats can say the wildest things, and often, the so-called Courageous ...Read more
The gruesome murder of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi shredded the idea that Saudi Arabian royalty should be praised for reforming itself. Princes who chop political opponents into little pieces are not nice people. That said, puh-leeze stop it with the adoration of a man who deserves none of it.
Politico ran a gushing headline that...Read more
It's a little hard to judge popular culture in the Trump era, wherein content creators are judged solely on political impact -- are they offering enough "Resistance"? -- instead of the quality of their product. The Democratic gains in the midterms should make the left happy about its political fortunes, excepting that every day President Trump ...Read more
Is there anything, anything at all, for which President Donald Trump won't be faulted by a press corps that despises him so much they are making a mockery of themselves in front of the world?
They slammed the president for failing to visit troops in a war zone. Then, on Christmas night, Trump snuck out of town with Melania to bring Christmas ...Read more
President Trump has been in office for almost two years, which should mean that by now, all the crazy talk in the media about his impending dictatorship ought to be abandoned. Democracy is still vibrant, as we saw with record voter turnout in November. But the wild conspiracy theories about Trump never stop. Some of them qualify as the worst ...Read more
The far left is having trouble fighting wars on two fronts. With President Donald Trump in office, it's fair to say that there hasn't been much of a "War on Christmas" this year, since the War on Trump is never-ending. But it's more than that. The left has become so radicalized in its deconstructionist ways that it is making a fool of itself in ...Read more
One of the reasons people decry the "fakeness" of the news is the selectivity of which heart-rending anecdotes are "news" and which are not -- unless they can be blamed on undesirable politicians.
On Dec. 13, the Washington Post published an online story headlined "7-year-old migrant girl taken into Border Patrol custody dies of dehydration, ...Read more
Talk-radio host and friend Chris Plante recently made an excellent point about Hollywood. As horrible new revelations of sexual misbehavior surface about former Les Moonves, it's highly unlikely anyone's going to make a movie about him, or about Matt Lauer, or Charlie Rose and so on. But there are two fictional projects (and a new documentary) ...Read more
National Public Radio is out begging for donations this week, with major stations like Washington's WAMU offering gifts like those silly reusable grocery bags touting the "Power of Truth." But the truth can be pretty embarrassing. Apparently, NPR exploits cheap labor.
Washington Post media reporter Paul Farhi has revealed that according to ...Read more
