    After binging for hundreds of minutes on the Donald Trump sex-talk tape, the liberal networks are now tiptoeing around the Wikileaks revelations, but spinning it as some kind of Russian conspiracy. .. Maggie Haberman of the New York Times was singled out as a pliant recycler of their narratives: “We have has [sic] a very good relationship with Maggie Haberman of Politico over the last year. We have had her tee up stories for us before and have never been disappointed... CNBC’s Becky Quick – who also moderated the CNBC GOP debate – promised John Podesta after Sylvia Mathews Burwell...

    Dallas Morning Snooze ^ | 09/07/2016 | Staff
    There is only one serious candidate on the presidential ballot in November. We recommend Hillary Clinton. We don't come to this decision easily. This newspaper has not recommended a Democrat for the nation's highest office since before World War II — if you're counting, that's more than 75 years and nearly 20 elections. The party's over-reliance on government and regulation to remedy the country's ills is at odds with our belief in private-sector ingenuity and innovation. Our values are more about individual liberty, free markets and a strong national defense.
  • Media justify anti-Trump bias, claim he's too 'dangerous' for normal rules

    The media’s legions of Trump-bashers are finally acknowledging the obvious. And trying their best to justify it. But there’s one problem: Tilting against one candidate in a presidential election can’t be justified. This is not a defense of Donald Trump, who has been at war with much of the press since he got in the race. Too many people think if you criticize the way the billionaire is being covered, you are somehow backing Trump. And it’s not about the commentators, on the right as well as the left, who are savaging Trump, since they are paid for their opinions....

    From Mediaite: CNN’s Fareed Zakaria spoke with Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources today about whether the media being too “elite” was a problem in how it missed the Brexit outcome so badly. Zakaria acknowledged that journalists tend to be “better-educated,’ “comfortable with diversity,” more liberal, and “probably less sensitive to the concerns” of average Britons who supported the Brexit. However, he said, the pro-Brexit campaign was “entirely using emotion, conjuring horror stories” about immigrants and the like, aided on by the British tabloids––which Zakaria referred to as “basically their Fox News.” Zakaria argued that “the media does have a bias...

By the time the filming had been done on Friday most of the actual cleanup of the damage which consisted of flooded cellars and houses, had already been cleared by the city’s paid employees. The broken furniture and other debris by the roadside, that was included in the footage, was actually left there on purpose by city workers who were planning on collecting it all later.

    Sarah Palin is hardly alone in her sense of some threat to the hegemony of English in the United States. You know the drill -- Jeb Bush answers a question in comfortable Spanish, and Palin, after some perfunctory compliments that Bush's conversational Spanish will be good for connecting to Latinos, gets in that here in the United States we need to "speak American." The problem with this kind of rhetoric is that it corresponds to no crisis. There hasn't been any documented tendency for native-born Americans to be uncomfortable in English. Those born here to non-English speaking parents speak their...

Washington has changed dramatically when he began covering the nation’s capital. Schieffer told “CBS This Morning” on Friday that the “revolution in communications” has turned D.C. “upside-down.” “We now don’t know where people get their news, but what we do know is they’re bombarded with...

    Republican Senator Ted Cruz skipped two Senate Armed Services committee hearings earlier this year in favor of speeches and TV appearances, a BuzzFeed News review has found. On February 26, the Texas senator missed an Armed Services committee hearing about worldwide threats, which featured testimony from National Intelligence Director James Clapper. The discussion covered an array of national security issues, including the threat of the Islamic State and the Iranian nuclear talks. Cruz mentioned many of the same issues when he spoke at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference that afternoon.

So why does PolitiFact still have Mr. Obama’s promises kept at nearly twice those broken? I decided to take a look. The first thing I did was see what promises were considered broken. It’s a fairly hefty list, but some of the very largest are completely missing. The biggest, and most famous, broken promise is that “if you like...

    There have been several instances on social media in which those who hold to values not favored by the Left have found themselves and their groups warned, suspended and even banned for expressing themselves, while Left-leaning groups have gotten away with much worse. Remember that conservatives, Republicans, libertarians and other advocates of universal values, freedom, equality under the law and individual responsibility are held to a different standard here on Facebook and other social media venues. There was a notorious example in which Facebook required a rape survivor to use her “real name” because she testified against a “transgender” bathroom...

Cuomo was debating Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage. Near the end of the back-and-forth and after Moore argued that rights cannot be handed down by men, Cuomo blurted out:“Our rights do not come from God, your honor, and you know that. They come from man... That’s your faith, that’s my faith, but that’s not our country. Our laws come from collective agreement and compromise.”

In fact, he went on to explain that the Obama DOJ is completely unbiased, irrefutably fair, and painstakingly judicious. And, humbly, the guy who once sued Ally Bank for discrimination without any actual evidence took full credit for “fixing” the politicization that took place during the years of Obama’s incompetent predecessor.And, he did it all without any intended sarcasm, satire, or irony… Given his history of suing banks, and handing the revenue over to Democrat oriented non-profits, I’d have to say this took a little bit...

    What do Rolling Stone’s University of Virginia rape article and Senate CIA report have in common? Neither report talked to the accused. However, both also suffer from the same paralyzing component. Both reports' conclusions were determined before the facts were collected. Although each report touches on vastly different topics, they both expose a lack of unbiased critical thinking necessary for the honest, intellectual presentation of the facts. Both reports are a product of an “end justifies the means” philosophy, where the authors start with a desired conclusion and build the “facts” to support that end. Both reports are a demonstration...

Jon Stewart’s impact on the media and politics is undeniable. “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams has noted that, when he presents a news story “Jon’s always in the back of my mind,” and that Stewart’s “The Daily Show” “hold[s] people to account, for errors and sloppiness…it’s healthy.” Stewart is often seen in this light—as a comedic check on the excesses of hypocritical politicians and the press that enables them. Stewart is a channel for the frustration many feel against those in power, and a voice for those without. But...

Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed.Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same...

Our country has benefited from a vigorous “fourth estate,” but that crucial oversight is sorely lacking today. Of course when Republicans are in office, liberal journalists become quite aggressive and love to launch investigations. When Democrats are in office, these same journalists help the politicians cover up their misdeeds. The identical...

Apparently, the end result should look something like the textbook that a University of South Carolina student was required to read. In a nutshell, it explained that Ronald Reagan was a sexist, that Conservatives hate people, and that the “rich” like to exploit the lower classes because they don’t want...

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), partying with a flamboyant Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), portrayed by cast member Taran Killam. Bachmann (Cyrus) and Boehner (Killiam) were celebrating the successful shutdown of the federal government, thus proving they could “do whatever they want.” Ha. Politically...

    The Parable of the Carnival and the “Freak Show” December 23, 2013 By Roger E. Olson 16 Comments The Parable of the Carnival and the “Freak Show”*This is fiction. Any resemblance to real persons or organizations is purely coincidental.Many years ago, long before the internet, television or even radio, three wealthy businessmen got together and decided to found a traveling carnival with a singular purpose. It would be different from other traveling carnivals and would be called “Culture and Enlightenment.” The “C & E Show.” Instead of the usual rides and games they hired on lecturers, artists, musicians, and took...

    The left planted its flag atop the educational establishment long ago. If we are to hope for better schools and smarter kids, that dominance must be overturned,” Dr Kevin Donnelly writes at Quadrant Online. “Forget the cultural-left bias and PC group mentality of the Australian Broadcasting Commission, when it comes to a pervasive ideological commitment to the left nothing beats Australia’s education establishment.” Dr Donnelly says the arrival of the Abbott Government immediately started the alarm bells ringing inside the system. “There is nothing surprising or new about such outbursts. Australia’s educationalists, along with those in other English-speaking nations, embarked...
  • PunditFact/PolitiFact: Media Bias Strikes Again -- At Me

    11/14/2013 4:22:07 AM PST · by Kaslin ^ | November 14, 2013 | Larry Elder
    When PunditFact -- the new offspring from the folks at PolitiFact -- contacted me, they wanted sources for "all of the claims" in the following statement I made Nov. 4 on CNN's "Crossfire": "In 1900, at all three levels of government -- federal, state and local -- government took less than 10 percent of the American people's money. Now, we're talking about 35 percent, and when you add a dollar value to mandates, we're talking almost 50 percent." What's the problem? PunditFact rated the statement as "mostly false." For added measure, PunditFact called the assertions "eye-popping." No, I was not...

    You will not indoctrinate my child,” he wrote. “If you are going to present articles with a slant to one side you are morally and ethically required to present the opposing views, to give an opportunity for the student, your captive audience, to come to their own conclusions.” Barry also reached out to the principal, who defended the teacher’s assignment and allegedly told him The New York Times story was not slanted. On Friday the story took a bizarre turn. A friend of Barry’s received a telephone call that he says came from Cydnee Cohen, the president of the East...

    URGENT MEMORANDUM TO: All the Better National Reporters FROM: The Coach. SUBJECT: The Appearance of Credibility. Listen people, you’re doing great work. Our guy’s holding up very well considering how rough the economy is. No jobs, sky high dependency. Best part: people don’t blame him. They think he’s an innocent bystander rather than president for the last five years. We’re getting it done! But one thing…maybe we gotta be careful not to show quite so much pompom and drool. Jackie Calmes and Michael Shear from the Times had a great sit down with the president. And who among us wouldn’t...

    This is a powerful video. Pastor Manning lays out the truth about why blacks blame George Zimmerman for the death of Trayvon Martin and why Trayvon Martin got himself killed that night. It is a must listen video. I give Pastor Manning a thumbs-up for standing up and being courageous for telling the truth.
  • Fort Hood Justice, Delayed and Ignored

    A federal judge has finally selected a trial date for accused Fort Hood mass-murderer Nidal Malik Hasan -- July 9. We'll see if it actually happens. If you've forgotten that mass shooting, then the media had scored a point for President Obama. The Pentagon dismissed the terrorist attack as "workplace violence," the Obama media nodded in agreement and the massacre vanished from public memory. Hasan went on his deadly rampage, killing 13 and wounding another 32, on Nov. 5, 2009. By the beginning of 2010, the networks were already in "sleep" mode. On the one-year anniversary, only NBC filed a...
