The National Basketball Association found itself in the middle of a political firestorm of its own making when the Houston Rockets' general manager tweeted something simple and admirable: "Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong." The NBA's first statement was cowardly. It began: "We recognize that the views expressed by... Daryl Morey have ...Read more
Politico posted a curious headline by senior media reporter Michael Calderone the other day: "News anchors fight back against GOP senators' refusal to condemn Trump." At this point, is it really news that "news anchors" are fighting the GOP?
Calderone in this case refers to CNN's Jake Tapper and NBC's Chuck Todd. Let's address them separately. ...Read more
Washington Post book critic Ron Charles made a confession the other day. "I banned a book," he wrote. "Or at least I helped get it banned, which makes Banned Books Week a little awkward for me this year. Like celebrating Arbor Day by cutting down a tree."
The book is titled "The Trigger: The Lie That Changed the World -- Who Really Did It and ...Read more
In the fall of 1998, House Republicans took special counsel Kenneth Starr's report on then-President Bill Clinton's impeachable conduct and launched an impeachment inquiry.

When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally announced she would support an impeachment process, she was bowing to left-wing extremists who have never accepted the 2016 election results.

After the election, celebrity leftists made a video urging the Electoral College to reject the election results. That didn't ...Read more
The grotesque nature of abortion and the industry that profits from it is routinely hidden by the national press beneath a gauzy layer of rhetorical blather about "a woman's right to choose." It's drummed into the public daily: Abortion is a precious civil right and a sacrament of feminism, never a death, let alone a murder.
Look no further ...Read more
Gaianism is alive and well in what we call Western civilization. In advance of the United Nations Climate Action Summit on Sept. 23, leftists are actively practicing their faith. Man has despoiled the Earth and now must ... confess to the Earth.

On Sept. 15, The New York Times ran a long Sunday Review article by its reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly in which they promoted their new book, "The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation."
The book could be titled "Bitter Tears for Leftists." You knew it was going to happen. Just as they cannot concede that Donald Trump won the ...Read more
It's a fallacy to suggest that in the news media, business trumps politics. CNN's and MSNBC's dismal ratings are in direct proportion to their deliberate decision to embrace far-left anti-Trumpism.
The same holds true for commercialized Hollywood, except in this case, it's not just anti-Trumpism that excites. The hatred is deeper. Hollywood is ...Read more
Think of the media's daily disgust at President Trump's patting himself on the back. Then watch something like "60 Minutes" and find CBS aerobically praising its own genius and celebrating the career of its retiring correspondent Steve Kroft in an hourlong episode on Sept. 8. Not only did Lesley Stahl toast Kroft for his allegedly fascinating ...Read more
For decades now, the Hollywood left has romanticized those brave Communist Party members who were blacklisted in the 1950s for refusing to cooperate with congressional investigations into their Soviet espionage.

The Washington Post caused an uproar inside the media when it reported that former Vice President Joe Biden told a "moving but false" war story at a campaign stop in Hanover, New Hampshire, on Aug. 23.

The network news ...Read more
In the midst of the daily tarring and feathering of President Trump by our "objective" press, we are treated to some precious moments where these badly disguised political operatives write something unintentionally hilarious.
Take, for example, The New York Times story on Aug. 25 headlined "Trump's Allies Scour Internet to Punish Press." ...Read more
On the verge of a new season, the NFL is trying a new corporate self-defense crouch. Its goal is to counteract criticism from the left that the NFL is insensitive to the Black Lives Matter crowd that urged NFL stars to kneel in disrespect of the national anthem. Those protests, which dramatically drove down NFL ratings and game attendance, ...Read more
On her weekly Sinclair TV show, "Full Measure," on Aug. 18, former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson interviewed pollster Scott Rasmussen about journalists' standing in the public square.

Public schools are reopening for business across America, meaning it's time to get back to reading, writing, arithmetic ... and revolution.
As usual in matters such as these, California is leading the way.
On the first day of classes at Denair Middle School near Modesto, science teacher Luis Davila Alvarado handed out a worksheet from a ...Read more
On Aug. 12, The New York Times published what The New York Times does best: a smear of conservatives in which they're attached to a national travesty. This time the headline was "How the El Paso Killer Echoed the Incendiary Words of Conservative Media Stars." The online article was illustrated with quotes from Rush Limbaugh, "Hannity," Tucker ...Read more

The first question on everyone's lips was: Why? Why did that El Paso monster murder 22 and injure another 26? What could explain this evil? It didn't take long to discover that the shooter had apparently published a four-page "manifesto" in which he proclaimed, "this attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas."
And just like that it...Read more
