As the television season wraps up, it seems that Satan is having a bad year on Fox. The still-Rupert Murdoch-owned network canceled not only its devil drama "Lucifer" but also "The Exorcist," which "blessed" us with anti-religious plots about sexually active gay and straight priests and mercy-killing nuns. It even waved goodbye to the sitcom "...Read more
Months ago, the Old Media proclaimed that President Donald Trump was more than a bit nutty in insisting his campaign was the subject of surveillance by the Obama administration.

Our "news" media are addicted to damaging internal leaks from the Trump White House, especially when the leaks make Team Trump look wildly insensitive.

Now the country is spending a week with the media demanding a public apology from White House aide Kelly Sadler, who reportedly ...Read more
California has a hallowed but questionable reputation as being the birthplace of the radical Free Speech Movement on the University of California, Berkeley campus. Today, they're not just shutting down conservative speakers on the campus. The state's Democrats may pass a law to shut down religious speech and create a statewide LGBT "safe space."...Read more

There's a swagger in Cecile Richards' step as she conducts a book tour around the media surrounding her departure from the summit of Planned Parenthood after 12 years. Call it a victory lap. Everywhere she goes, adoring liberal interviewers ask her if she'll run for office next. After all, it's not like she has millions of little skeletons in ...Read more
The Center for American Progress, founded in 2003 by former Bill Clinton chief of staff John Podesta, promotes itself as pushing "bold, progressive ideas, as well as strong leadership and concerted action."

Back in '92, the late Paul Weyrich and I held a press conference during the Republican National Convention to make two announcements.
First, we were endorsing George Bush 41's re-election. Second, we'd just made the most meaningless endorsement in history. He had so thoroughly bungled his first term that there was nothing to be done to save him...Read more

Barbara Hall, the creator of the pro-Hillary Clinton CBS show "Madam Secretary," claimed "We just take ...Read more
The definition of "news" is very elastic these days. Another word we could use is "publicity." When former FBI Director James Comey's publisher, MacMillan, boasts that it will kill enough trees to print 850,000 copies -- when a decent fraction of sales is in e-books and audiobooks -- publicity is clearly booming.
The "news" media are stuffing ...Read more
Two days of congressional hearings with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg underlined how American perceptions of media power are changing.

Liberal journalists have spilled a whole lot of ink in the Trump era, boasting how they've suffered watching a week or so of Fox News programming to explore the strange informational terrain of the Trump voter. They pompously proclaim it's television for your crazy Uncle Frank, pushing conspiracy theories for dumb people while nurturing ...Read more
One measure of how old we're getting is realizing how many voters today have no familiarity with the Chappaquiddick scandal. In July of 1969, then-Sen. Ted Kennedy drove off a bridge into a pond with a young woman in the passenger seat and left the scene of the accident alone. Kennedy waited 10 hours to report it, and Mary Jo Kopechne died.
Let's imagine the following statements were part of a public opinion poll. How many people would agree to these assertions?
1. "(W)e're concerned about the troubling trend of irresponsible, one sided news stories plaguing our country. The sharing of biased and false news has become all too common on social media."
2. "More alarming, some media...Read more
For many years now, the celebrated thespian Sean Penn has been one of the wackiest activists in the pantheon of the Hollywood left. When we last observed him in his unnatural habitat, he was warmly interviewing the murderous drug lord "El Chapo" for Rolling Stone and insisting the drug lord is demonized in the war on drugs.
Now Penn thinks he ...Read more
The left's brazen double standard on the Stormy Daniels story is apparent to everyone. Suddenly, claims of sexual activity with the president before he became president are relevant. In the years of President Bill Clinton, his critics were told to "grow up about sex" because "libido and leadership are linked." The public was lectured about ...Read more
One thing that defines liberals is their incessant desire to push political messages into every time and space. Their "compassion" and "inclusion" is perpetually shoved in our faces. That problem has metastasized under President Trump. The urgency of their "resistance" is knocking down all the barriers.
Don't they know that most Americans don't...Read more
NBC News star Chuck Todd recently made a lectern-pounding speech to attendees of a journalism awards dinner. He proclaimed: "One thing we're not is the opposition. We've never tried to be a part of the political debate, but people want to drag us into it. We shouldn't take the bait. We're simply a voice of truth."
So, let's consider the case of...Read more
