    From Mediaite: CNNís Fareed Zakaria spoke with Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources today about whether the media being too ďeliteĒ was a problem in how it missed the Brexit outcome so badly. Zakaria acknowledged that journalists tend to be ďbetter-educated,í ďcomfortable with diversity,Ē more liberal, and ďprobably less sensitive to the concernsĒ of average Britons who supported the Brexit. However, he said, the pro-Brexit campaign was ďentirely using emotion, conjuring horror storiesĒ about immigrants and the like, aided on by the British tabloidsĖĖwhich Zakaria referred to as ďbasically their Fox News.Ē Zakaria argued that ďthe media does have a bias...

    Speaking to CNN's Fareed Zakaria Sunday afternoon, Wall Street Journal's Bret Stephens said that it was important for Donald Trump to lose the general election so utterly that the Republican party and its voters "learn their lesson" and never nominate someone like him ever again. Stephens has been one of Trump's most outspoken conservative critics, writing in March, for instance, that Trump is essentially an amplified version of Barack Obama. Both men were "epic narcissists who see themselves as singularly suited to redeem an America that is not only imperfect but fundamentally broken," he wrote. "The candidacy of Donald Trump...

    On Sunday's Fareed Zakaria GPS on CNN, host Zakaria seemed to be doing an impression of the type of super-biased political panel seen in the worst of days of MSNBC in the form of four liberals pitted against one moderate Republican and no conservatives discussing the role of racism in opposition to President Barack Obama. The accusations of racism against conservatives included The New Yorker editor David Remnick charging that George H.W. Bush used "racist memes" to win the 1988 presidential campaign and repeating a discredited claim of Ronald Reagan of using a racist "dog whistle" by talking states' rights...

    The modern Republican Party has been devoted to free markets and free trade, social conservatism, an expansionist foreign policy and fiscal discipline, especially on entitlements. Remember that the speech that launched Ronald Reaganís career was an attack on Medicare. On every one of these issues, Trump either openly disagrees or ó as with abortion ó has a past track record of disagreement. Over the past decade, Republican support for immigration and free trade has been collapsing. But Trumpís nomination would transform the party into a blue-collar, populist, nationalist movement with a racial element ó much like many others in the...

    Citing a study that shows Middle American whites are dying in increasing numbers, like a twisted and bitter eugenicist, serial-plagiarist Fareed Zakaria doesn‚Äôt even attempt to contain his glee. By painting those who are supposedly dying as useless, drug-addicted ragers, he paints a picture of a weak, angry, and ultimately stupid ethnic group getting what it deserves. If this were any other group, Zakaria would not be using the pages of the Washington Post for a victory dance. Instead, he would be launching an emotional blackmail campaign to cure this ‚Äúepidemic‚ÄĚ with hundreds of billions of federal dollars. Like most...

    Why is Middle America killing itself? The fact itself is probably the most important social science finding in years. It is already reshaping American politics. The Post's Jeff Guo notes that the people who make up this cohort are "largely responsible for Donald Trump's lead in the race for the Republican nomination for president." The key question is why, and exploring it provides answers that suggest that the rage dominating U.S. politics will only get worse. For decades, people in rich countries have lived longer. But in a well-known paper, economists Angus Deaton and Anne Case found that over the...

    The White House used an article written by a known plagiarist to attack the credibility of the leader of Americaís closest ally in the Middle East.

In a stunningly political and petty move, the White House essentially accused Prime Minister Netanyahu of fear mongering for more than two decades. The White Houseís use of Zakaria raises red flags.

    Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned on Saturday that relations with Israel may "never be normal again" as tensions continue to rise after Israel refused to apologize over a raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla last year in which Israel Defense Forces soldiers killed nine Turkish citizen. "We gave our warnings to Israel. This is the reason for war. This is something you cannot do in international waters. But as a great state, we have been very forgiving. That's why we have been very patient," Erdogan said in an interview on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" to be aired on Sunday.

    Two days after liberal Democratic politician/CNN host Eliot Spitzer told fellow CNN host Fareed Zakaria it ďbrought a smile to my faceĒ and ďmakes my heart warmĒ to learn President Obama ďcalls you for wisdom and advice about issues around the world,Ē Zakaria took to CNNís Web site for his Sunday show, Fareed Zakaria GPS, to issue a ďclarification on my conversations with the PresidentĒ in which Zakaria, an in unusual late Saturday afternoon posting, declared: ďThe characterization that I have been Ďadvisingí President Obama is inaccurate.Ē Zakaria maintained that all heís done is ďhad a couple of conversations with...
  • The Architect of 9/11 (M. Atta's master's thesis in urban planning)

    The subject of the thesis is a section of Aleppo, Syria's second city. Atta describes decades of meddling by Western urban planners, who rammed highways through the neighborhood's historic urban fabric and replaced many of its once ubiquitous courtyard houses with modernist high-rises. Atta calls for rebuilding the area along traditional lines, all tiny shops and odd-angled cul-de-sacs. The highways and high-rises are to be removedóin the meticulous color-coded maps, they are all slated for demolition. Traditional courtyard homes and market stalls are to be rebuilt. For Atta, the rebuilding of Aleppo's traditional cityscape was part of a larger project...

    The American economy might surprise us by the year-end. Many economists and businessmen believe that although the current slowdown could turn into a recession, a financial collapse is now highly unlikely. Bruce Kasman, the chief economist at JPMorgan, is an optimist. He believes that even though the economy has been hit by some big problems, it also has strengths that will encourage recovery. (American exports, which now account for most of the country's economic growth, are booming.) But Kasman is a short-term optimist; he has a much gloomier view of the longer term. For the past 15 years, the U.S....

    Conservatives are a gloomy bunch at the moment. Many believe that their partyóthe Republican Partyóhas lost its way and that it has done so by abandoning its principles. Aside from his foreign policy and Supreme Court appointments, conservatives find little to love about George W. Bush. His signature domestic policies include a vast expansion of government-financed health care (prescription-drug benefits), and increased funding for education while halfheartedly promoting vouchers and school choice. Bush also signed into law campaign-finance reform and supported a proposed immigration bill that would have allowed illegal aliens a path to citizenship. The Republican Congress is even...
  • Did We Really Overreact to 9/11? (A response to Fareed Zakaria of Newsweek.)

    Fareed Zakaria has written a very strange piece for Newsweek, asserting, amongst other things, that the United States overreacted to the 9/11 attacks. Zakaria¬ís usually way off ‚ÄĒ read his views on Iran ‚ÄĒ but these new and particularly bizarre claims deserve a response. His article begins: Nine years after 9/11, can anyone doubt that Al Qaeda is simply not that deadly a threat? Since that gruesome day in 2001, once governments everywhere began serious countermeasures, Osama bin Laden¬ís terror network has been unable to launch a single major attack on high-value targets in the United States and Europe. While...

    Newsweek's Fareed Zakaria on Sunday worked overtime trying to defend Barack Obama's pathetic response to the Gulf Coast oil spill while chastising his colleagues in the media for having the nerve to criticize the president. In the opening segment of his "Fareed Zakaria GPS" aired on CNN, Zakaria asked, "Have we all gone crazy?"

    Political commentator Fareed Zakaria told a University of Oklahoma gathering that the Republican Party needs to grow for the good of the country. Zakaria, seen regularly on CNN and ABC News and the editor of all Newsweek international editions, was not simply playing up to his red-state audience. He said the GOP is becoming a regional party controlled by a base dominated by radio commentator Rush Limbaugh, whose average listener is age 67. Meanwhile, a majority of people younger than 30, working women, college graduates and minorities ó all demographics on the upswing ó voted Democrat in the last election....
  • Fareed Zakaria: Al-Qaeda Not Really A Big Deal, Americans ĎOverreactedí To 9/11

    Fareed Zakaria warns in Newsweek that Al-Qaeda was significantly more incompetent that Americans believed in the aftermath of 9/11, and the result is a ďnational-security stateĒ that threatens civil liberties. Any other time of year, comments like this would be controversial at best, especially from the mild-mannered Zakaria. So close to the anniversary of the most painful event in recent American history, it borders on the callous. In one of his final columns in Newsweek (Zakaria will be soon moving to Time), Zakaria questions whether the American government should have increased spending in national security after 9/11, since ďAl Qaeda...
