Washington Post blogger Eugene Volokh reported trouble in Public Broadcasting Land on Monday night. Berkeley-based KPFA, the original station that started the radical-left Pacifica chain of public radio stations, abruptly canceled their August 9 event with harshly atheist author Richard Dawkins over his criticism of Islam as "the most evil religion on the planet."


Last September, as I noted in a NewsBusters post, the Washington Post published a column by feminist freelancer Jody Allard, who used her perch to publicly shame her sons, lamenting how they were "blind to rape culture." Last week, facing criticism for continuing to expose her parent-child struggles and her sons' apparently unacceptable worldviews, she went to Medium.com to explain why she's not letting up. Those who continue to carry her columns need to be asked how they can justify continuing to enable her.


New York Times intelligence reporter Peter Baker did all he could to minimize the scandal that resulted in the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, and maximize the danger President Trump is now in, in Sunday’s “Trump Turns to Familiar Playbook: Clintons’.” Baker attacked Clinton special prosecutor Ken Starr and cited Democratic attack-dog James Carville as an authority to defend the integrity of Trump special counsel Robert Mueller.


AMC's Preacher has been quite open on its anti-religious and ultra-violent style even in its second season, but tonight we’re looking at a slight change of pace. No, there is still plenty of blood and religious blasphemy to go around, but the latest episode comes with a new cheap shot against former Vice President Dick Cheney.


Liberal activist and film maker Michael Moore has decided to celebrate his Twitter account surpassing the five million mark by doing what he loves best: trying yet again to bring down GOP President Donald Trump. On Monday, July 24, the creator of such “schlockumentaries” as Fahrenheit 9/11 -- a 2004 film criticizing then-President George W. Bush -- and Sicko, in which Moore sought expert opinion on health-care systems from his parents, will donate $1,000 to the anti-Trump group supported by each of five followers of his website.


On Monday's News One Now, far-left host Roland Martin began his show by complaining because last week NewsBusters accurately reported that he ignored the high-profile shooting death of a white woman by police officers in Minneapolis, even while updating his viewers on cases involving blacks who were also killed by police officers. As he finally got to the case of Justine Damond, the News One Now host gloated about a prediction he previously made that "the only way this thing was going to change is when somebody white got shot and killed." He then boasted: "Oh, how a brother was right."

 


CNN Newsroom host Poppy Harlow made the ridiculous claim last Thursday that The New York Times is an "unbiased" publication: "I'll just say, it's good that he's giving an interview to a, you know, down the middle, unbiased publication like The New York Times."


The Washington Free Beacon’s video editor and 2016 Noel Sheppard Media Blogger of the Year Award recipient David Rutz published on Monday afternoon a study put out by the Trump White House, showing how camera-loving Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff (Calif.) has spent over 14 hours on cable and network TV since President Trump’s inauguration.


New on July 24: Called out by presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway to name the “big scandals” of the Trump administration, CNN’s Brian Stelter, on Sunday’s Reliable Sources, cited President Trump’s “demagogic behavior when it comes to the media.” The CNN host insisted that when Trump “calls real news outlets fake news, he poisons our public discourse” and “makes it harder for us to trust each other.”


According to CNN’s Brian Stelter, the reason journalists cover Russia non-stop is because they “love America.” The liberal Reliable Sources anchor battled with Kellyanne Conway about the cable network’s priorities on Sunday. Conway blasted ObamaCare, saying, “You can't sit here, Brian, and deny the fact that 19 of the 23 co-ops under ObamacCare have failed. They're gone.” 


In the spring of 2011, Newt Gingrich denounced Paul Ryan’s then-current proposed federal budget as “right-wing social engineering” and argued that a “free society” should not “impos[e] radical change.” On Friday, Andrew Sullivan made a similar case against congressional Republicans’ attempts to junk ObamaCare


On Monday July 24, the parents of the terminally ill baby Charlie Gard released a statement that they would be withdrawing their petition to have their son treated. Citing the deterioration of Charlie’s condition and the loss of a "window of opportunity" they have instead opted to spend what little time they have left with their son. While many in the UK and across the world mourned the travesty and injustice of the court’s decision, others sought to justify the reasoning behind it. In a piece for The Guardian entitled “Despite Charlie Gard’s Tragic Story, We Must Respect The Process Of Our Courts,” UCL health professor, Ian Kennedy, expressed sympathy for the plight of Charlie, but ultimately justified it on the basis that “children do not belong to their parents.”


On Monday, Lisa Marie Pane of the Associated Press refreshingly filed a positive report on gun ownership, which detailed how a National Guard veteran trains her fellow African American women to use firearms in self defense. Pane spotlighted how "Marchelle Tigner is on a mission: to train at least 1 million women how to shoot a firearm." She also noted that "Pew surveys in recent years have shown a growing acceptance of firearms among African-Americans."


America is a sports-crazy nation, but you certainly can’t tell that by ESPN’s television ratings anymore. If losing to the Teletubbies in viewership ratings isn’t a repudiation of the so-called “world leader in sports and entertainment,” I don’t know what is.


The NRA has been firing back at false accusations made by the Washington Post including one that claimed the gun-rights advocate had illegal ties to Russia (Fake News). In a video released last week, Grant Stinchfield at NRA-TV suggested that the disgraced publication's motto should be, "Journalism Dies at the Washington Post," instead of, "Journalism Dies in Darkness." He called out the violence of the left and the lies told by the media.
