Extreme left pundit says something immoral

America was stunned when Jared Lee Loughner pulled out a gun in a Tucson, Arizona, supermarket parking lot in 2011 and shot then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in the head at point-blank range and killed six others. No one recalls a TV pundit wondering whether the people should root for Giffords to survive -- or anyone with the gall to imply her head ...Read more

Liberal media likes to to ignore leftist violence

The radical leftist fanaticism over Rep. Steve Scalise's alleged shooter has been an integral part of the news coverage, as it should be. James Hodgkinson's ties to the Bernie Sanders campaign have been reported (if sometimes buried) by most news outlets, and the pundits are virtually universal in their belief that the socialist senator should ...Read more

Comey's testimony reveals the liberal media's bias

Liberal media outlets like The New York Times have a political objective driving their coverage: Ruin President Trump.

This is why the "news" producers treated former FBI Director Jim Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee as a Watergate moment, a first impeachment hearing to be broadcast live on every "news" channel on ...Read more

The Lighter Side of Assassination?

In the wake of Kathy Griffin holding up a mock severed head of President Trump, it's disturbingly obvious that murderous thoughts about our leaders are now considered by the left to be light, humorous fare, a balm for their anxieties.

It's not just Trump. The latest issue of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo arrived just before the ...Read more

Liberal media should only be judged by their very worst

In reaction to the May ratings report showing MSNBC as number one in weeknight prime-time viewership in the prized 25-to-54 age demographic, CNN sent out a spokeswoman to separate itself from the competition. CNN should be viewed as "the one nonpartisan cable news network," presumably unlike MSNBC, and certainly unlike Fox News.

This statement ...Read more

Griffin pulls a stupid stunt, gets her comeuppance

How could Kathy Griffin think she didn't cross a line with her Islamic State group-beheads-the-president imitation? In a sense, her ignorance is understandable. Since Donald Trump was elected, there have been no lines to cross. Anything ... everything ... has been acceptable. The challenge has been not to temper the outrage but to push its ...Read more

Liberal media won't cut Trump the same slack they gave Hillary

President Trump is back from his first foreign trip, and CBS "welcomed" him back by suggesting again that he can't possibly win a long fight with the media.

On May 28, CBS reporter Errol Barnett quizzed "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson, saying: "Trump is back to tweeting his unedited opinions this morning, telling people among other things...Read more

Franken's bilious nastiness of "full-throated liberalism" is offensive to me

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

The liberal media again does something I think is stupid

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

Liberal media takes out a 'hit' on Tim Allen

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

Cowardly anonymous sources feeding fake news media are killing democracy

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

The liberal feminist nonsense of 'The Handmaid's Tale'

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

Obama is more relevant today than our current president

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

Liberal comedians are too mean to Trump

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 and the liberal standard

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

What I see as my version of Reagan's lesson for Trump

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

Liberal media's 100 days of incessant journalistic negativity

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

Liberal media hypocrisy in the anti-O'Reilly army

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

The liberal media's biased coverage of tax days

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

How Much Longer Will PBS Abuse the American Taxpayer?

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
