April 9th, 2016 5:08 PM

AP Hides Truth About Death of Moderate Muslim Asad Shah in Scotland
March 27th, 2016 3:37 PM
Perhaps it would be understandable if U.S. media outlets chose not to cover the death of Asad Shah in Scotland. After all, it occurred overseas, and only one person has died.
But the Associated Press did decide to cover the story and post it at its subscribers' U.S. news sites. As such, the AP has a duty to reveal what is known at the time its reports appear. Thus far, it has failed miserably.…

Daily Show: ‘Trump Is White ISIS’; GOP Should Be Banned from WH
December 9th, 2015 2:15 AM
