CBS News has a strange way of marking Valentine's Day. On the Sunday after Wednesday's romantic dinners and flowers, "Sunday Morning" linked the day to a deep study of marital infidelity.
Reporter Tony Dokoupil found an expert: therapist Esther Perel, author of "The State of Affairs: Rethinking Infidelity." He also found two cheating wives ...Read more
Of all the desperate and futile attempts at revisionist history, few are as careless as the attempt to destroy the reputation of one of the finest Supreme Court justices this country has ever produced. Now comes another volley. New York magazine has assembled "The Case for Impeaching Clarence Thomas." The author is longtime anti-Thomas ...Read more
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is constantly hammered by "Gotcha!" questions from reporters in the briefing room. This was dramatically underlined when the story broke about former White House staff secretary Rob Porter being accused of domestic violence by two ex-wives, one of whom even brandished a picture with a black eye....Read more
Every two years, Americans unite around the television to root for U.S. athletes, to see their dreams of gold medals come true -- unless you're a journalist, in which case the Olympics are a time to root against your country on the world stage.
At the opening ceremonies in Pyeongchang, South Korea, organizers strangely seated Vice President ...Read more
When secular leftists express frustration at how practicing Catholics (their humble servants) and evangelicals could have ever voted for Donald Trump, the first thing they refuse to concede is the horror of the alternative.
They refuse to admit that Hillary Clinton clearly, forthrightly stood for abortion on demand, at any time, for any reason ...Read more
At a speech in Cincinnati, President Trump heard someone in the audience yell "treasonous" as he mentioned the Democrats' pouting at the State of the Union address. "Somebody said, 'treasonous,'" he mused. "I mean, yeah, I guess. Why not?"
The media outrage was summarized by CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin: "It is so grotesque...Read more
Even before President Trump gave his first State of the Union, the left was complaining that he was going to look "presidential." It still can't accept that he is president and gets to give presidential speeches. But Trump took that opportunity and fully exploited it.
The Trump speech was beautiful, at some points even poetic, and delivered ...Read more
President Trump's first State of the Union address is a fine occasion to imagine how close we came to a President Hillary Clinton. Imagine if Clinton had actually campaigned in the Midwest instead of Arizona and won the closely contested Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. (Imagine the exact same congressional results.) Then imagine the ...Read more
The Shekhinah is ComingValjean Tchakirides
The Shekhinah is Coming: Secrets of the Divine presents a circular study of what Tchakirides calls "the divine plan that ends where it begins - 'in LIGHT'". This work bridges the gap between religion and science, offering explanations of recent NASA discoveries and suggesting what they might ...
Members of the Hollywood left flew to Utah for the Sundance Film Festival (and its homegrown women's march) with a small item of regret on their agenda. Just last year, they had put on their pink knit hats and marched for women's rights with one of the most visible figures at Sundance ... Harvey Weinstein.
How to handle this embarrassment? ...Read more
The Democrats blinked in the first round of the government-shutdown fight over immigration, but they promise to regroup and fight again for immigrants living in America illegally who came as minors. The Democrats call them "Dreamers," and so, the "Facts First" media employ that loaded propaganda term as well.
One might argue "Dreamers" is only ...Read more
Since 1973, liberal feminists have celebrated the "right to choose abortion" without admitting the horror -- over 60 million lives have violently and prematurely ended since the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade. The liberals who champion abortion are far more comfortable panicking that abortion "rights" are always in danger, especially when ...Read more
As we approach the first anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration, it is painfully obvious that our "news" providers are a highly agitated brigade of the "Resistance." A new study by my own Media Research Center finds that from Jan. 20, 2017, through Dec. 31, 2017, the evening news shows on ABC, CBS and NBC were overwhelmingly hostile in both ...Read more
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hosts the Golden Globes, may have provided the rocket fuel for Oprah Winfrey for President in 2020. Her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award struck the perfect pose for the Hollywood establishment. It has seen itself as the uninterrupted social conscience of America for as long as it has...Read more
In the midst of the media feeding frenzy over Michael Wolff's gossipy and fact-mangling book on the Trump White House, another piece of news broke. On Jan. 5, it was announced that the FBI has returned to investigating The Clinton Foundation. Yawn. First, the media ignored it. Then, they touched on it for half a story, after which pundits ...Read more
Steven Spielberg has made a new movie glorifying the Washington Post and how it rallied against then-President Richard Nixon and the Vietnam War in the Pentagon Papers court fight of 1971. It's simply called "The Post." Everyone inside and outside this movie is drawing the comparison between Nixon's difficult relationship with the press and ...Read more
In July, MSNBC host and former Rep. Joe Scarborough showily announced on Stephen Colbert's CBS show that he was leaving the Republican Party. No one on the Republican National Committee flew a flag at half-mast. The announcement was at least a decade behind the reality. In 2006, he basically called then-President Bush an idiot. Last week, he did...Read more
Liberals at the Washington Post didn't seem to have a merry Christmas this year. They were seriously unhappy about the fact that anyone would utter the "lie" about President Trump making it safe to say "merry Christmas" after eight years of the Obamas sending out White House cards wishing "happy holidays."
Washington Post media critic Erik ...Read more
The year 2017 unfolded into a massive surprise to liberals, who fully expected that before Christmas we would (a) all die in a nuclear war over President Donald Trump's tweets or (b) be swearing in President Mike Pence after Trump was impeached or petulantly quit because the news media were full of meanies.
More than ever, the media see ...Read more
The first year of President Trump stirred the makers of popular culture into a frenzy of resistance. Any list of the year's cultural winners and losers revolves around how the entertainment elites offended Americans in the red states by trying too hard to correct their outdated patriotism and other traditional values.
Loser: the National ...Read more
After a wave of stunning announcements and admissions about the serious alleged sexual misbehavior of Harvey Weinstein and others, observers might wonder whether any of the accusations pouring forward are exaggerated, or even false. Most denials have been strangely and unpersuasively worded, as in "I don't remember it that way." On the other ...Read more
