Column: Who Pays for Getting the Health of Kim Jong Wrong?

May 6th, 2020 5:55 AM
Two weeks ago, CNN anchor Jim Sciutto tweeted “Breaking: The US is monitoring intelligence that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s health is in grave danger following a surgery, a US official with direct knowledge tells me.” MSNBC anchor Katy Tur threw more tinder in the box, tweeting “North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is brain dead, according to two U.S. officials. He…

The Two Faces of Joe Biden

May 5th, 2020 8:56 PM
Even if the sexual assault allegations by former Joe Biden staff member Tara Reade turn out to be false there are still problems the former vice president faces. The first and most important of these is whether he can win his party's nomination. I'm generally suspicious when it comes to politics. Why has Reade waited until now to come forward? Biden has run for president before and…

The Times vs. Sean Hannity Showcases the Paper's Spectacular Fall

May 2nd, 2020 4:00 PM
Well, this wasn’t good. On Monday, Fox’s Sean Hannity sent off waves of bad publicity for The New York Times, as seen with this headline from Fox: “Sean Hannity demands retraction from New York Times over 'defamatory' coverage.” The essence, as reported in that Fox story: “Attorneys for Fox News’ Sean Hannity have formally demanded The New York…

Remember What Hollywood’s MeToo Activists Said About Brett Kavanaugh?

May 2nd, 2020 1:30 PM
Hollywood’s MeToo warriors are united in silence regarding the credible sexual assault accusations against Joe Biden. The evidence supporting Tara Reade’s claim that the Democrats’ presumptive presidential candidate attacked her in 1993 continues to grow. We have video proof of her mother telling Larry King about her daughter’s sexual attack, and how the powers that be…

Column: Michelle Obama, Saintly Buck-Raker?

May 1st, 2020 6:23 AM
The Obamas were awarded a book deal worth an estimated $65 million for their memoirs, hers and then his. They also struck an estimated $50 million production deal with Netflix. (We don’t have actual numbers. Could someone in the media ask for a tax return?) Now, with this self-aggrandizing documentary about Michelle's book tour on Netflix, the second deal is being used to accentuate the…

This week, new evidence emerged in the sexual assault allegation by former Joe Biden staffer Tara Reade against the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee.

Then and Now

April 29th, 2020 10:53 PM
Getting my parents and grandparents to talk about their experiences during the Great Depression and World War II was always difficult. They lived in the pre-Dr. Phil generation before people went public with their deepest thoughts. I have been thinking how they might have responded to the current panic caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. I suspect their reactions would come in ways far different…

Column: Numerical Nitpicking of the Coronavirus Briefings

April 29th, 2020 6:44 AM
Throughout the Trump era, the media have hated the president, both coming and going. They condemned him for not having “formal” press briefings. Now they condemn him for having them. The Washington Post and The New York Times augmented their aggression on the briefings by doing content analysis of the transcripts.They're full of Trump "attacks" and "boasts,"…

Trump --- Mad as Hell and Not Going to Take It Anymore

April 27th, 2020 10:45 PM
On Sunday, April 26, President Trump took to Twitter and raged in public like someone who is “mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.” It can safely be said that this line from the classic 1976 film Network comes close to describing the president’s fury at the so-called mainstream media. Included in his rant was an attack on Fox News, which continuously claims to be fair…

The Liberal Media's Latest Corona Attack on Trump

April 25th, 2020 4:00 PM
It is unreal to watch. Supposedly sensible adults in the national media deliberately - say again deliberately - twisting the words of the President of the United States in the middle of a national emergency. Bad enough under any circumstances, but now? Here are some samples of liberal media Fake News in full hysteria mode:

April 25th, 2020 1:30 PM
Director John Millius is nothing less than a legend. Milius played a critical role in ’70s cinema, and beyond. He wrote Apocalypse Now, Conan the Barbarian and helped sculpt two Dirty Harry films. The auteur’s 1984 action film Red Dawn quickly achieved cult film status, influencing a generation of rebels in the process.

Column: Earth Day Dunking on Humans

April 24th, 2020 6:53 AM
On the fiftieth anniversary of “Earth Day” -- something of an ecological feast day -- journalistic, philanthropic, and religious leaders echoed the spirit of the original celebration: The human race is a cancer on the planet. In the sternly reinforced quiet of stay-at-home orders, this Team Earth reveled in how the world was such a better, cleaner, calmer place when most humans couldn…

Every Crisis an Opportunity

April 23rd, 2020 3:45 PM
This week, the price of oil futures collapsed catastrophically. In fact, the prices collapsed into negative territory in the near term. This bizarre situation, prompted by lack of consumer demand and lack of storage facility, led the irrepressible Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., to tweet: "You absolutely love to see it. This along with record low interest rates means it's the…
