Anita Hill, perennially painted as the "Rosa Parks of sexual harassment" by the national press, is back on the scene as the media push the unproven teenage-groping accusations against Brett Kavanaugh. The New York Times asked her to write an op-ed on how we can get these next Kavanaugh hearings "right." The Boston Globe put Hill on the front ...Read more
The erupting accusation of "attempted rape" against Judge Brett Kavanaugh when he was 17 show just how shameless the Democrats and the "Facts First" media have become. They are promoting accusation when the accuser can't remember when or where it happened. That is enough to stop a Supreme Court nomination?
The media/Democrat message is that the...Read more
Hollywood continues to be rocked by Ronan Farrow articles in The New Yorker that unfurl charges against powerful men and accuse them of sexual harassment and assault.

Twenty years after recommending to Congress that then-President Clinton be impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice, Kenneth Starr has written a book about it. Surely, with the passage of time and many other books exploring the Lewinsky affair and the other Clinton scandals, Starr can be treated with dignity and respect.
Back then, he ...Read more
It is hard to fathom that there really exists a body of public opinion that supports Nike's decision to make former NFL star Colin Kaepernick the center of its new "Believe in something" advertising campaign. This is the fellow who believes in wearing socks depicting cops as pigs and wears a pro-Fidel Castro T-shirt because he believes that ...Read more
Apparently, a weekly show on NBC and a nightly show on MSNBC weren't large enough platforms for Chuck Todd to complain about troublesome conservatives, so he's written an article for the liberal magazine The Atlantic titled "It's Time for the Press to Stop Complaining -- and to Start Fighting Back."
Under the headline, he added, "A nearly 50-...Read more
If CNN really wanted to brand itself as a "Facts First" news channel, why did it promise to air a gushy documentary about fiercely feminist Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Labor Day weekend? In case you didn't know, this film is actually a production by "CNN Films," founded in 2012 to offer "distinguished, thought-provoking ...Read more
When seeking to demonstrate the degree to which the "objective" news media act like Democratic partisans, the best place to start is scandals, as in "Have you heard all about the latest Republican scandal?" versus "What Democrat scandal?"
On Aug. 8, Republican congressman Chris Collins of the Buffalo, New York, suburbs was indicted for insider ...Read more
Over the years, Oprah Winfrey has seemingly evolved into America's mom. After her TV career, she sounds like an evangelist preaching a feminist substitute to replace religion in her monthly Oprah Magazine. Her August issue carries this motivational nugget of Oprah wisdom on the cover: "We all want to feel radiant, joyful, and alive. It starts ...Read more
The Boston Globe successfully organized a campaign to get nearly 350 newspapers, large and small, to publish an editorial on Aug. 16 on "the dangers of the administration's assault on the press." They laughably claimed: "This whole project is not anti-Trump. It's really pro-press."
This was The Globe's summation: "The greatness of America is ...Read more
In the latest issue of Vanity Fair magazine, perpetually bilious writer James Wolcott has attacked the "myth of Hollywood's conservative blacklist." He finds it highly amusing that anyone would fear damage to their acting career for publicly favoring this president.
"Hollywood conservatives still act as if prison searchlights are prowling the ...Read more
NBC "News" is perfectly demonstrating why the American people distrust the media's professed belief in facts, or their supposed approach of holding a story until they have enough documented evidence.
The latest shameless exhibit? Championing former "Apprentice" star and White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman's new "tell-all" book in which ...Read more
The Political Correctness Police, starting with the perpetually victimized GLAAD (the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) and a group called 50/50 by 2020, are trying to impose quotas on everything Hollywood does.
Leftist fascism is not on the march. It is galloping.
They are part of an open letter signed by titans of the Hollywood ...Read more
Reporter Andrea Mitchell is celebrating 40 years with NBC News and appeared on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" to discuss the milestone.

Mitchell demurred but denounced Trump for calling the...Read more
Pro basketball legend LeBron James was interviewed on "CNN Tonight" on July 30. Host Don Lemon warmly congratulated him for opening a school for 240 at-risk children in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. If only it could've ended there, focused just on that. But you knew it wouldn't.
Because, as they say, " This ... is CNN." It was expected ...Read more

In the long, hot summer of television, gun control hasn't been a big issue in the news media, which is not acceptable to its rabid cousins in the world of entertainment. For them, guns are the root of all evil, so let the story be told!

Republican Sen. Rand Paul sent the media into another meltdown on July 23 when he called on President Trump to revoke the security clearance of former President Obama's CIA Director John Brennan. He charged that Brennan is "monetizing" his privileges by becoming an on-air analyst for NBC News and MSNBC. That doesn't even count Brennan's speaking...Read more
CBS's pay-cable Showtime channel is the latest backer of con artist/"comedian" Sacha Baron Cohen's performance art, as in the movies "Borat" and "Bruno." It's a new TV show called "Who Is America?" that is designed, as usual, to mock Americans -- mostly conservatives -- as gullible and stupid.
The most prominent victim this time around is ...Read more
On July 10, The New York Times Magazine devoted nearly 6,000 words to Michael Avenatti, the Trump-trashing lawyer representing porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims she had sex with President Donald Trump. How is he worthy of so much attention?
