When you send your youngster off to college, you might not mind that they will have to walk on eggshells, respect taboos, snitch on fellow students for politically incorrect jokes and learn to use ad hominem arguments as a means to attack ideas they find “disagreeable.” If that's your preference, you can choose from a wide variety of America's top-ranked colleges. If you want to send your youngster to colleges that are seriously committed to civil and diverse debate, pick up a copy of the June 2019 edition of Reason magazine for some guidance.



The latest research on the Big Three evening newscasts by Rich Noyes at the Media Research Center proves irrational behavior. The nightly-news obsession over nonexistent Trump-Russia collusion isn't abating. It's actually growing! They cannot be shamed. That cannot be shaken by inconvenient facts. There's no collusion, no obstruction, no high crime that's impeachable. But they're tripling down on impeachment talk.

It's a familiar quote from Charles Dickens’ classic Oliver Twist, but with special contemporary relevance in light of a statement last week by Special Counsel Robert Mueller: “‘If the law supposes that,’ said Mr. Bumble... ‘the law is a ass — a idiot.’” But it isn't so much that the law is fractured, rather it is practitioners who sometimes do it an injustice.



There they go again.

The Associated Press, Mediaite and CNN are aghast — aghast! ----  that President Trump’s White House Counsel Kellyanne Conway is supposedly playing politics in the White House.



Just recently, the CNN show United Shades of America’s fourth episode of season four ostensibly about the abortion debate. Students for Life of America was invited by the show to come down to Jackson, Mississippi for a day of filming. Unfortunately, the episode showed why CNN has a reputation for fake news.  



If you think the news media’s Trump Derangement Syndrome is out of control, look at what’s happening in Hollywood. We already know celebrities still haven’t processed Donald Trump’s shocking victory. The unconventional president “broke” a crush of stars, and the list is growing.



A new survey of college students by the liberal-leaning Knight Foundation shows the future of the First Amendment doesn't look so bright in America. It found 41 percent said "hate speech" should not be protected by the Constitution. Only 58 percent thought it should. In fact, a 2017 survey out of UCLA found that out of 1,500 college students who were asked whether "hate speech" is protected by the First Amendment, only 39 percent correctly said yes. The Thought Police are gaining ground.

With his latest blockbuster, Unfreedom of the Press, Mark Levin presents a unique indictment of the liberal media today — something I doubted could be done, given the plethora of material already written on this subject.
