Sen. Al Franken has a new book out humbly titled "Al Franken: Giant of the Senate." On that same level of attempted humor, his biography states he received "his doctorate in right-wing megalomania studies from Trump University." Stay classy, Sen. Franken.
Sycophantic press profiles of Franken express admiration for the "former comedian" as if ...Read more
It was big news when Roger Ailes died. Everyone in his industry acknowledged that a serious, even transcendent force in American media and politics had passed away. Without Fox News over these last 20 years, the shape of American politics would be far different. The heretofore unanimously liberal media suddenly had a counterweight, and, much to ...Read more
In January, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey told a Television Critics Association session in Hollywood that she wanted to retool ABC programming to include more shows for Trump-voting segments of the population: men, rural America and working-class families.
"If we're talking about diversity and inclusion, I want to make sure we're ...Read more
On May 14, CNN host Fareed Zakaria offered a fiery secular Sunday sermon declaring that President Trump is a "danger to American democracy" and guilty of "gross violations of the customs and practices of the modern American system," and that only the news media can "keep alive the spirit of American democracy."
On Monday, the Washington Post ...Read more
Dystopian entertainment is all the rage now that Donald Trump is president, and the more unglued it sounds about an approaching American totalitarian state, the better, hence the liberal cheerleading for "The Handmaid's Tale," a TV series made for the streaming service Hulu.
It's based on a loopy 1985 novel by the radical feminist Canadian ...Read more
Like Pavlov's dogs, the liberal media salivated over the arrival of former President Barack Obama to receive the Profile in Courage Award from the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation. The mythic figure returned to accept the honor in the middle of a two-hour live special on MSNBC, loaded with the usual Chris Matthews slobbering over his "American...Read more
TV comedy cannot be too harsh when directed at President Donald Trump. There are no limits, and CBS "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert has proven it. Under the rubric of corporate loyalty after the president cut an interview short with CBS "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson and mocked his show as "Deface the Nation," Colbert called the ...Read more
Situational ethics define the liberal media. There is no pursuit of truth. There is only a double standard.
When former President Barack Obama bowed to dictators in Cuba and Iran, it was "historic" diplomacy. When President Donald Trump talks up meeting with autocrats, that's another dangerous and disgusting sign of his lack of respect for ...Read more
You Shall Know Our Names (The Judah Halevi Journals) (Volume 1)Ezekiel Nieto Benzion
When Ezekiel Benzion's grandfather handed him the dusty journals written by Doctor Judah Halevi Nieto, he begged, "Before I die, tell me why our family protected these for two hundred years. Who were these men? And why were they revered?" The search for answers led to ...
It's something most conservatives would not have imagined a year ago: The opening act of Donald Trump's agenda in the White House contains a real whiff of President Ronald Reagan. To be sure, there's plenty the Reaganites won't like -- talk of trillion-dollar federal building campaigns, taxing business at the border, etc. -- but there's plenty ...Read more
The time has come for the media to pull out the artificial measuring stick of 100 days to evaluate President Trump. If they're kind, he'll get an I for "incomplete." But it's more likely they'll use other I words like "inability," "incompetence" or "incoherence." Whatever they say, it won't be kind.
But eight years ago? Time magazine's Joe ...Read more
Fox News took Bill O'Reilly off the air after a heavy campaign to fire him led by CNN's media unit and The New York Times. If all the charges of sexual harassment are true, his case is indefensible. That said, it's time for his media critics to stand down. They are guilty of rank hypocrisy.
These same media outlets despised the idea that Donald...Read more
Leftist protesters around the country used the tax deadline on April 18 as an occasion to hold rallies demanding the release of President Trump's tax returns. They could use large inflatable chickens and signs with hammers and sickles saying "Show us your rubles" and no journalist would be offended.
Knowing the president, this will have all the...Read more
On April 5, The New York Times published an op-ed by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal headlined "Save PBS. It Makes Us Safer." McChrystal now runs a big lobbying firm, so that may be why he cares so much -- he's a gun for hire.
So how does the general think PBS makes us safer? And from what are we safer? The answer: commercialism. Parents ...Read more
Hillary Clinton has granted her first public interview since losing the election. It came on April 6 at the Women in the World Summit, organized by leftist editor Tina Brown. Clinton was introduced by comedian Samantha Bee. On cue, as expected, she gushed: "You deserve to hear it 100 times -- it should have been you."
The assignment to ...Read more
The late-night comics turned their liberal rage on Ivanka Trump after she granted an interview on April 5 to "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King.
It was an interesting choice for a television interview considering King would clearly be hostile. She partied with Oprah and the Obamas in the White House after President Obama's first inauguration...Read more
Eli Lake at Bloomberg News reported on April 3 that President Trump's lawyers discovered it was former President Obama's national security adviser Susan Rice who allegedly "requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign."
Susan Rice at the ...Read more
One might think that Fortune would want to keep a sober reputation as a magazine for business executives. But it made a fool of itself. It came out with a list of "The World's 50 Greatest Leaders," and on that list was once-a-week late-night TBS "comedy" scold Samantha Bee.
It's one thing when a news magazine is hunting for cultural influencers...Read more
On March 16, a 14-year-old girl was allegedly pushed into a boys bathroom at Rockville High School in Maryland and raped by two other students during school hours. Police arrested two freshmen who recently arrived from Central America, 18-year-old Henry Sanchez and 17-year-old Jose Montano. Sanchez, a Guatemalan, has a pending "alien removal" ...Read more
In the stunned aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, America healed in part by tuning in to "Saturday Night Live," just a few miles from the wreckage of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. We all felt like New Yorkers and Pentagon employees after radical Islamic terrorists killed more than 3,000 Americans by hijacking four airplanes.
Now, many ...Read more
The defunding of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting is long past overdue. No president, including Ronald Reagan, has seriously pushed an immediate winding down of this corrupt and outdated waste of taxpayer funds. Who would have ever imagined that Donald Trump would be the first to do it?
His first budget proposal takes that step, not just...Read more
