Inside the silo of the "legacy media," they are alarmed that left-tilting government bureaucrats are being discouraged from telling social media platforms what speech they should suppress ... in the name of "democracy."
In 2020, these platforms crushed damaging stories about Hunter Biden and "conspiracy theories" about COVID emerging from a ...Read more
One way you know that most journalists are Democrats is their energetic work presenting about 37 ways the Republican Party may collapse into rubble in the near future, versus their cautious beating around bushes about problems the Democratic Party may have -- but maybe they'll all vanish.
The Monday political roundtable on the "PBS NewsHour" ...Read more
Washington Post media reporter Paul Farhi is the most recent example of a journalist who sounds like his own colleagues are the "professionals" and the writers without the classic Old Media branding are the "non-pros," people who don't have standards.
Farhi began by tweeting: "Someone invented the phrase 'citizen journalism' a few years ago to ...Read more
One of the ways that Democrat Party newspapers tell us they are Democrat Party newspapers is the timing of their investigative journalism. On the front page on Nov. 17, The New York Times ran a 4,100-word hit piece on Robert F. Kennedy Jr. titled "In Public Causes, Kennedy Earns Acclaim, Criticism and a Fortune."
Investigative reporter ...Read more
On Nov. 7, the House of Representatives (212 Republicans and 22 Democrats) voted to censure radical Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) because she has "levied unbelievable falsehoods about our greatest ally, Israel, and the attack on October 7."
One of those outrageous falsehoods was clinging to the false claim that Israel bombed the al-Ahli hospital...Read more
Sen. Tim Scott's surprise suspension of his presidential campaign underlines that no one should be relying on the network news programs if you want coverage of the presidential race. The late-night comedians ganged up to mock Scott as an unknown after he withdrew.
On ABC, unfunny Jimmy Kimmel cracked, "If you don't know who Tim Scott is, it's ...Read more
Conservatives were up in arms that the Republican National Committee was allowing NBC News to moderate a presidential primary debate. Given NBC's record of hostility to Republicans in debates and in general, it seemed like a terrible idea. As it turned out, it was a sober and serious debate with no remarkably hostile or silly questions.
On the ...Read more
They still call their national newspaper "USA Today," but on some days, the front page looks more like "LGBTQIA Today."
On Oct. 6, the bold top headline was "When Libs of TikTok posts, threats increasingly follow." The author is Will Carless, whose beat is "extremism." Beware, that beat is almost always just "right-wing extremism." That's how ...Read more
The libertine Left in America is infuriated that Roe v. Wade was overturned. In their ideal world, abortion would be available everywhere at all times of pregnancy, and it would be taxpayer-funded for the less fortunate. Forget that the people who are least fortunate in an abortion are the unborn babies.
Abortion advocacy groups know they have ...Read more
Former congressman Adam Kinzinger has a new book out for Halloween titled "Renegade." This implies he's a daring rebel against Republicans, instead of simply switching parties. In some dictionaries, "renegade" is defined as "a person who abandons a cause or organization, usually without right," like a "mutineer." That fits.
When asked by ...Read more
The good news for Republicans is they finally elected a new speaker of the House, Mike Johnson. The bad news for Republicans is the "objective" media exist to create bad news for Republicans.
The "Politico Playbook" announced the breaking spin over the breaking news: "Johnson is about to become for Democrats what Nancy Pelosi was for ...Read more
William F. Buckley Jr. famously quipped, "I would rather be governed by the first 2,000 people in the Boston telephone directory than by the 2,000 people on the faculty of Harvard University."
By that same logic, those first 2,000 names have to be better than being governed by a group of Hollywood celebrities.
Alyssa Milano -- most famous as a...Read more
The massive social media companies have all employed "independent fact-checkers" to improve their public image. Democrats and their allied media outlets have lamented that too much "misinformation" is shared on their platforms. "Fact-checkers" flag questionable posts, and they get blocked or limited.
None of this happens when left-wing media ...Read more
Insular media elites have a nasty habit of thinking they represent democracy. They aren't a half or a third of democracy. They own it. Like they've trademarked it. Anyone who dares to attack them is attacking democracy. The most obvious example is The Washington Post and their arrogant motto, "Democracy Dies in Darkness."
As part of his "hail ...Read more
Conservatives and Republicans should be at the top of the list of people who enjoyed the writers strike over the summer. From May through September, the alleged comedians who are an important part of the Democrat messaging and morale machine were sidelined.
They missed the opportunity to wallow joyfully in Trump indictments and mock the first...Read more
Often, as Americans, we want to live in an old Coke commercial where everyone sings in perfect harmony on a hill while they're holding their cola bottles. We don't want to live in a world where evil humans just gun down peaceful concertgoers or kill unarmed civilians in house-to-house raids. Raping women, and then executing them. Taking hostages...Read more
Anyone watching the TV coverage of President Joe Biden can sense the chumminess between the president and the pro-Biden press. But you don't always see the friendships behind the scenes.
On Oct. 5, Politico's daily Playbook newsletter touted a dinner to "celebrate White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre." In addition to a bevy of ...Read more
On an average day, the Left tries to dominate our culture and our politics by pretending it doesn't actually exist. By that, I mean our media outlets and Hollywood propagandists rarely speak in public about being "liberals" or "progressives" or ideologues of any kind. They organize for nebulous-sounding causes, like "women's rights" (abortion) ...Read more
We've been subjected to years of lectures about how Republicans are a "threat to democracy," but watching the post-debate reactions to the second GOP presidential debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library made you wonder who exactly hates democracy. Like the first debate aftermath, they assert debates are pointless.
It wasn't October yet...Read more
The nightly "news" cannot be expected to offer you an "explainer" on anything happening in Washington. Their ratings gurus would tell them that trying to educate the audience on how Congress works, for example, would result in eye rolls and channel flips to "Wheel of Fortune."
What they call "news" is more accurately described as a negative ...Read more
