Nikki Haley didn’t complain about the liberal lectures during the recent Golden Globe Awards. Nor did the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. whine about the SAG Awards or last year’s Academy Awards gala. Each event dripped with progressive politics. Haley remained silent. She doesn’t engage with liberal stars like her boss, President Donald Trump, frequently does.


Katherine Graham, the late publisher of The Washington Post, is legend in their newsroom. Not to mention in Hollywood, which has just turned out a glitzy tribute to Mrs. Graham, starring Meryl Streep as the publisher who, with executive editor Ben Bradlee, fought the Nixon administration over the release of the Pentagon Papers. Now the very same paper rallied against releasing the Nunes memo.


A recent interview with influential psychologist and academic, Jordan Peterson, has left many thinking. In a now-viral video, the U.K. Channel 4’s Cathy Newman interviewed the author of 12 Rules for Life a few weeks ago and, naturally, Peterson’s arguments surprised and stumped Newman at almost every turn. 


Xinran Ji, 24, had big dreams. But demons demolished them. The bright hopes of young Xinran Ji, a University of Southern California engineering student from Inner Mongolia, died in 2014 at the hands of a then-19-year-old "Dreamer" and his thug pals.

“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” (Romans 13:1) That verse, written by Paul the Apostle, is one of the most difficult for modern evangelicals to fully accept. It was written at a time when the Roman authorities were bad dudes.


Swell, our beloved Hollywood stars are busy crafting their politicized speeches for the Academy Awards program. I'll bet you can't wait. Oscar-nominated English actor Daniel Kaluuya, in an interview with W magazine, opined that racism is more pronounced in America than in Britain. So happy to learn this and can't wait for his upcoming lecture.


The headline was everywhere. Here’s just one from right here at NewsBusters: "Don Lemon Blames Donald Trump for Death Threats Made to CNN Employees." 


Ask the hard-working animators and artists at Walt Disney Animation Studios or its sister studio Pixar what good storytelling is, and they’ll give you an unrivaled description.
