Along with the fact that they lost complete and total control of Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate, co-moderators Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell joined the seven candidates by peddling a far-left narrative about gun control, fretting about there being a “gun crisis” and wondering if gun manufacturers are going to be given “a pass” under a hypothetical Sanders presidency.
Yahoo News is spreading around one of the silliest British tabloid stories you can find. It's headlined "Trump and his entourage fail to eat anything from special vegetarian menu prepared for them on India trip." Tim Wyatt's story for the Independent (U.K.) started out waffling: "Donald Trump and his entourage reportedly failed to eat a single item of a special vegetarian feast prepared for him during his trip to India."
Tuesday was the big night over on CBS where they would hold the final Democratic debate before the primaries South Carolina and the Super Tuesday states. And with socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) occupying the frontrunner’s podium for the first time, one would think the host network would apply a little more scrutiny. But their pre-debate newscast on CBS Evening News completely skipped over the Senator’s recent controversy of praising the murderous regime of Fidel Castro, and his double down.
He’s not too sorry. Just a day after offering an on-air apology for comparing Bernie Sanders’s Nevada win to the Nazis, the staunchly anti-communist Chris Matthews ripped into the socialist’s deputy campaign manager, Ari Rabin-Havt..

On Monday's Amanpour & Co. show, the program demonstrated a double standard in challenging the Republican characterization of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders's socialist views when, by contrast, in the same show, former Barack Obama advisor Dan Pfeiffer was not challenged on his assertion that Republicans have become "white nationalist authoritarian" with the election of President Donald Trump.
A 19-year-old German woman is being hailed as the conservative response to climate change activist Greta Thunberg. She has condemned climate alarmism as a “despicably anti-human ideology,” and liberal journos are heated about it. Naomi Seibt encourages rationality in the face of climate alarmism and is seen as the conservative answer to climate change activists like Greta Thunberg. She is currently being supported by libertarian think tank The Heartland Institute, and was reportedly hired as the figurehead of its campaign to question the scientific consensus about climate change. “If imitation is the highest form of flattery, Heartland’s tactics amount to an acknowledgment that Greta has touched a nerve, especially among teens and young adults” The Washington Post wrote in its Feb. 23 coverage.
The Simpsons voiceover actor Hank Azaria is coming out about his recent decision to step down from the role of Indian “Kwik-E-Mart” owner Apu in the legendary animated series, claiming, “it just didn’t feel right.” Sure, dude, that’s exactly what we’d expect from someone who was scared straight by the Twitter woke mob.
The new Public Charge Rule, which may determine that an alien is inadmissible to the United States based on the alien’s likelihood of becoming a public charge at any time in the future, is now in effect.

That suggests this new concern is motivated more by fears of Trump than of communism.
One of the common mottoes liberals love to use is: “Do As I Say, Not As I Do.” That was the case on Wednesday, February 12, when host Cenk Uygur -- creator of The Young Turks news and commentary television program -- insisted that his employees not create a union. The reason Uygur gave for his hypocritical stance was that it would force the small network into bankruptcy even though it would contradict the company’s “worker-first” ethos and its attempt to enhance profits to keep the outlet functional.

She also said that Cubans "grew up not thinking the Castro regime was bad."
