NewsBusters Columns

I never thought I would write this, but the publisher of The New York Times, A.G. Sulzberger, is right. Sulzberger wrote an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal in response to President Trump's claim that his newspaper committed “treason” by publishing a story about U.S. efforts to compromise Russia's power grid should Moscow again try to meddle in U.S. elections. The Times says it consulted National Security officials who raised no objections to its publication.



You can’t make this stuff up. There —  in the pages not of the New York Times but rather the Wall Street Journal — was no less than the publisher of the Times, A.G. Sulzberger, as he blasted the President of the United States. And in the very first paragraph Sulzberger misled readers.



There are plenty of winners & losers this summer when it comes to the entertainment industry. But only two winners and two losers make the cut when it comes to columns like this. And the following list features the topics that have made the cut so far this summer.



When a film crashes at the box office a curious phenomenon take place. And quickly, mind you. Hollywood news sites pounce, detailing why the film in question tanked in the first place. Insiders who might have stayed quiet had the movie thrived all of a sudden have plenty to say.



Oberlin College in Ohio has devolved into one of academe’s most infamous examples of political correctness. Now Oberlin’s administration is being punished in a very significant way for a very significant offense, and it’s about time. It has taken political correctness to an abusive extreme. The Wall Street Journal opinion section headline summed it up: “Oberlin Pays for Smearing the Town Grocer.” They have been ordered to pay $44 million in damages to Gibson’s Food Market and Bakery.

Just like its star, the showboating anti-Trumper Jorge Ramos, Univision cannot simply act like a “news” network. It’s a left-wing lobbying operation badly disguised as a “news” outlet. It’s one thing to slant the news. It’s another to enter the policy arena and fight for the left-wing agenda – in the courts, no less.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's comments on the pro-life cause and its advocates are illustrative of the left's increasing extremism, militancy and disturbingly intolerant and authoritarian mindset. "I believe that for all of these issues, they are not issues that there is a fair other side. There is no moral equivalency when you come to racism, and I do not believe there is a moral equivalency when it comes to changing laws that deny women reproductive freedom."



The media and Democrats are agog over President Trump's comment to former Bill Clinton adviser and current Good Morning America host, George Stephanopoulos.
