  • Syria’s Elites Find Time For Fun As Country Burns

    From their Instagram feeds they appear to be just like other young people enjoying the summer time: backflipping into water, chilling at a pool bar, basking in a sundrenched meadow. But the photos belong to a group of Syrians who have maintained their privileged lives, despite the war ravaging their country. They’re Alawites, the country’s minority sect and its elite. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and many in his ruling government belong to the group, which comes from a strand of Shiite Islam. They dwell in Tartous and Latakia, perched on the Meditteranean on the Syrian coast, where there are few...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Fox News contributor Bernard Goldberg told Bill O’Reilly last week that Republicans live in fear of “the organized Christian right.” Goldberg and O’Reilly were discussing presidential candidate Ted Cruz, who recently asked a local reporter in Texas if the left — including the media — is obsessed with sex, after reporters repeatedly badgered him with questions about gay marriage and homosexuality. Both said that Cruz handled the question well, even though Goldberg admitted, “I’m not a fan of Ted Cruz.” But Goldberg had more to say. “Ted Cruz could have said, of course, I have no animosity against gay Americans....

    The Fox Business Network (FBN) should be congratulated for launching a six-month investigation into the Federal Aviation Administration’s hiring practices, an investigation revealing complicity between the FAA and diversity groups such as the National Black Coalition of Federal Aviation Employees (NBCFAE). The findings were revealed on “The Willis Report” last week on FBN. The investigation resulted in an article by Adam Shapiro, exposing a story of corruption and attempts to stoke favoritism, where an FAA employee and head of an NBCFAE chapter worked to increase the likelihood that minority candidates would succeed under the FAA’s new hiring practices. Ironically, one...

    FACT CHECKER: “ISIS didn’t exist when my brother was president. Al Qaeda in Iraq was wiped out when my brother was president.” Bush seems to have fallen prey to Washington conventional wisdom, in which ISIS suddenly emerged into consciousness in the past year or so. That may be fine for armchair analysts or journalists. But that’s little excuse for a presidential candidate, who might have to grapple with this problem if he or she is elected president. With some fine-tuning of his statement, Bush could have made the case that Obama’s decision to withdraw from Iraq, combined with the president’s...

    Call it Caliphate, UN style. Freedom and individual rights will be nothing but archaic words when a high-handed United Nations gets to deliver its upcoming, etched-in-concrete 2015 Global Social and Environmental Agenda, effectively imprisoning humanity for the next 15 years and beyond. The rope around society’s neck will tighten to chokehold point, and that’s the full intent of media mogul Ted Turner’s long-running The United Nations Foundation. As long as the aims of The United Nations Foundation remained in the murky abstract, its chief pooh-bahs could always fend off resisters by smearing them as conspiracy nuts imagining black helicopters hovering...

IMG_0004The study, which appeared in the December 12, 2014 edition ofScience, claimed that support for same-sex marriage among voters increased with the use of door-to-door canvassing, especially if the canvasser was gay.

    During the early years of the Reagan administration, a Washington news conference was held for me for my first book, "The State Against Blacks." Before making summary statements about the book, I offered the reporters assembled that they could treat me like a white person. They could ask me hard, pressing questions. They could demand proof of the arguments that I was making. People such as former NAACP President Kweisi Mfume and former Chairman Julian Bond and the Rev. Al Sharpton can make ludicrous statements. An intimidated news media just swallow the nonsense. They are probably afraid to challenge, lest...

Pew said the companies spun off the money-losing properties "in large part to protect their still-robust broadcast or digital divisions."

Twenty-one percent (21%) still have confidence in the political coverage they get, but that's down from 33% in the earlier survey. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.

Now George Stephanopoulos is caught in a Clinton web of deceit at ABC. The hat trick of arrogant anchor scandals helps explain why Americans don’t trust network news. With apologies to Walter Cronkite, that’s the way it is, and the way it is stinks. Stephanopoulos shares with Rather and Williams the rotten distinction of fessing up only after being exposed by real journalists. In his case,...

Footage of the menacing, black-clad terrorist army rolling across the desert in long convoys predates U.S.-led air strikes that have forced the jihadists to travel more discreetly, say senior State Department and Pentagon officials.

Woodruff initially recalled the donation as being for $1,000, but based the $250 amount as the one on her 2010 tax return. Woodruff tried to make it sound bipartisan: “I made the gift in response to an urgent joint appeal from former President Clinton and...

    Geraldo Rivera sees a double standard at work in ABC News’ decision to stand by George Stephanopoulos after the network’s chief anchor apologized for failing to publicly disclose $75,000 in donations to the Clinton Foundation over the last three years. In a Facebook post Friday morning, Rivera claimed he was fired by ABC News in 1985 for making a $200 political donation and wondered why Stephanopoulos isn’t getting the same treatment. “In 1985, after fifteen great years, I was fired by ABC News,” Rivera wrote. “The official reason for my firing was a non-disclosed $200 donation to a family friend...

    1.) Obama Dismisses Wealthy Americans As ‘Society’s Lottery Winners Speaking to a panel on poverty at Georgetown University, President Barack Obama dismissed wealthy Americans as “society’s lottery winners” and called on them to make a “modest investment” in the poor in the form of tax increases. You pretty much have more than you’ll ever be able to use and your family will ever be able to use. “There’s a fairness issue involved here. And by the way, if we were able to close that loophole, I could now invest in early childhood education to make a difference. That’s where the...

    In case you missed it yesterday, ABC News chief anchor and former Clinton White House communication advisor George Stephanopoulos admitted to donating $75,000 dollars to the Clinton Foundation after being busted by the Washington Free Beacon. Of course, Stephanopoulos didn't disclose the information before interviewing Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer two weeks ago about allegations Hillary Clinton traded political favors for donations to the Clinton Foundation during her time as Secretary of State. During the interview, Stephanopoulos argued there was no "smoking gun" to Schweizer's claims in his book and said ABC News had concluded there was no wrongdoing. Naturally,...
  • Flashback 1996: Why ABC shouldn't hire Stephanopoulos

    ....Stephanopoulos was one of the most partisan of partisan warriors ever — just look at "The War Room," the documentary from the 1992 Clinton presidential campaign. So it was something of a surprise in 1996 when ABC News hired Stephanopoulos, fresh out of the Clinton White House. And there was some confusion about what the deeply partisan Stephanopoulos' role would be: Analyst? Pundit? Straight news reporter? At the time, I asked ABC about it and was assured Stephanopoulos would be a pundit — like William Kristol, who was then with ABC News — and would not do any news reporting....

    The following exchange set up by George Stephanopolous is a glaring example of hypocrisy. It is also an example of pure manipulation in the media. It is one of the provable moments in which network media is propagandizing the American people. In its own way, it is on a level with the Benghazi "Mohammed Video" propaganda effort -- also by Hillary Clinton surrogates -- to run an information campaign against the American people. STEPHANOPOLOUS: ...But I do want to ask a broader question. It's been reported that you -- you briefed several Republicans on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, including...

    The ABC anchor has admitted he donated the money to the Clinton Foundation. Republicans do not want to let the matter die. ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos, who for 15 years expertly navigated his re-invention from tough Clinton operative to respected television journalist, has finally—and perhaps inevitably—slipped up. His mistake, by any definition, is a beaut—no doubt prompting a blush of shame and putting the network news division on the defensive.

    RUSH: Did you hear about Stephanopoulos today? Have you heard about this? George Stephanopoulos, it has been discovered -- and he has apologized for not telling us -- that he has donated $50,000 to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation over the years. Now, see, Snerdley's in there shaking his head, "So what, not surprising." That's the point, right? Not a surprise. He never left the Clinton crime family, is the point. He's not a journalist. He's not an anchorman. He's a political hack. All he did was change his location. But you see, the thing is, once again, there's a...

    On Hugh Hewitt’s radio program Wednesday, Charles Krauthammer, a licensed psychiatrist, couldn’t decide if President Obama is delusional or merely cynical. He also said the president is “sort of … pathological” in the way he picks up “these (anti-Fox) memes” while not knowing “a damn thing” about what’s on Fox News. Dr. K. was reacting to the startling comments Obama made at George Washington University Tuesday: “There’s always been a strain in American politics where you’ve got the middle class, and the question has been who are you mad at if you’re struggling, if you’re working, but you don’t seem...

    President Obama is taking heat for calling for changes in "how the media reports," during an anti-poverty event where he also took a swipe at Fox News. At the Georgetown University discussion on Tuesday, Obama lamented how, sometimes, the poor are cast as "sponges" who don't want to work. "I have to say that if you watch Fox News on a regular basis, it is a constant menu -- they will find folks who make me mad," Obama said. "I don't know where they find them. They're like, I don't want to work, I just want a free Obama phone...
