    America finally has a politician running nationally those who esteem freedom can respect both in character and also largely in ideology. From his “Aw Gosh” demeanor and Middle-American values, springs a nimble mind which quickly grasps the core issues. He can even articulate them without a teleprompter. Mitt Romney chose rightly in Paul Ryan. The Romney campaign had recently tested Condi Rice as a trial balloon. The Wall Street Journal exhilaratingly proclaimed, “Ms. Rice's assets are obvious: She's a woman; she's black …” It looked bleakly like Romney might trip into the same trap as Senator McCain. Sarah Palin is...

    Representative Paul Ryan has long wanted to let Americans invest part of their Social Security taxes in private investment accounts. After legislation he co-sponsored in 2005 went nowhere, Ryan included a detailed plan to privatize Social Security in his budget proposal in 2010. Under that plan, he would allow workers to funnel an average of roughly 40% of their payroll taxes into personal retirement accounts.

    I was appalled, although not surprised, to read the just announced list of moderators for the forthcoming presidential debates: Jim Lehrer of PBS, Candy Crowley of CNN, Bob Schieffer of CBS, and Martha Raddatz of ABC (VP debate). All liberals from liberal news organizations. Not even a token representative from Fox or the Wall Street Journal – not in the moderator seat anyway. Don’t we live in a democracy?

    New York Times food writer and reporter Mark Bittman issued an apology on his blog on Tuesday for a venemous post on the recent death of Chick-fil-A's vice-president for public relations Donald Perry. In a recent blog post, I used an inappropriate phrase to refer to the late VP of PR for Chick-fil-A. My choice of words did not rise to either my own standards or to The TimesÂ’s, and the phrase has been removed from the post. I regret this lapse. In a recent blog post, I used an inappropriate phrase to refer to the late VP of...

A Reuters reporter in the border town of Rafah said heavy equipment was brought to the Egyptian side of the tunnels, which are used to smuggle people to and from Gaza as well as scarce food and...

    (Reuters) - Senator Harry Reid and the White House may be taking different roads, but when it comes to Mitt Romney and his taxes, the destination is the same. [snip] The strategy is a familiar one in modern campaigns, with extreme accusations from outside a campaign serving as a way for the campaign itself to highlight its message without embracing the inflammatory rhetoric. In the 2004 presidential campaign, it was the "swift boat" attack ads that became a central theme in the drive to defeat President George W. Bush's Democratic challenger, John Kerry. Four years later, when Barack Obama first...
  • The Tampa Tribune has ceased reporting on fatal accidents and criminal activity. What's going on?

    Over the past week I have noticed a startling and complete absence of reporting in The Tampa Tribune on any local automobile accidents, criminal activity, thefts, break-ins, prostitution, etc. In short, any unlawful and illegal activity which historically has been a large percentage of the reporting at The Tampa Tribune suddenly has been stricken from the paper. I know for a fact of one incident involving the Tampa shooting death of a man by his son, which occurred earlier this week, because I work with a man who lives next door to the house in which the murder took place....

    Chick-fil-A’s owner, Dan Cathy, has been excoriated recently for pronouncing Christian principles and fearing God’s judgment. When asked about his traditional take on families, Mr. Cathy acknowledged, “Well, guilty as charged.” “We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit.” Cathy continued, “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.” A firestorm ignited. Media outlets nationwide translated this benign statement into portraying Cathy as some raving bigot intent on persecuting anyone with whom he disagrees. The outcry prompted the...

    “Evangelical leaders echo Obama, say U.S. is not a Christian nation.” So read the headline accompanying a putative “news” story published yesterday in the exceptionally liberal, exceedingly biased Los Angeles Times. Times religion reporter Mitchell Landsberg misleadingly claimed that evangelicals agree with a statement the current president made in 2006 when he was still a member of the U.S. Senate: “Whatever we once were,” said Obama, “we are no longer a Christian nation. At least, not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of unbelievers.” What the...

    The media-news site reports on Facebook comments by Fort Myers (Fla.) News-Press reporter Mark Krzos, who summed up his disgust as he covered Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day: "Such a brave stand ... eating a g-ddamn sandwich." "I have never felt so alien in my own country as I did today while covering the restaurant’s supporters. The level of hatred, unfounded fear and misinformed people was astoundingly sad. I can’t even print some of the things people said," he claimed. Then he bashed talk radio: "It was like broken records of Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh and a recitation of half-truths...

    Mitt Romney might have thought it was eminently sensible in an NBC interview in London to repeat exactly what the TV networks had already reported on security at the London Olympics, namely, that there was room for concern. Romney succeeded only in demonstrating how unbelievably shameless and partisan our "objective" media can be. The networks and national newspapers aggressively declared Romney had committed a diplomatic fiasco overseas and repeated London tabloid headlines heckling Romney with insults, such as "Mitt the Twit." Here's what the networks said pre-Romney. On the July 24 "Good Morning America," ABC reporter Nick Schifrin lamented "an...

    Mitt Romney, in an interview with Fox News, accused the media of attempting to "divert" attention from more substantive issues by harping on his so-called gaffes overseas. "I realize that there will be some that in the fourth estate ... who are far more interested in finding something to write about that is unrelated to the economy, to geo-politics, to the threat of war, to the reality of conflict in Afghanistan today, to nuclearization of Iran," Romney told Fox News' Carl Cameron, after wrapping up his final event in Warsaw, Poland.

    By Thomas Sowell, senior fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University. Since so many in the media cannot resist turning every tragedy into a political talking point, it was perhaps inevitable that (1) someone would try to link the shooting rampage at the "Batman" movie in Colorado to the tea party, and that (2) some would try to make it a reason to impose more gun control laws. Too many people in the media cannot seem to tell the difference between reporting the news and creating propaganda. NBC News apparently could not resist doctoring the transcript of the conversation between George Zimmerman...
