After having hosted the first set of 2020 Democratic presidential debates, MSNBC was relegated to only post-debate analysis and some panelists used this format to, without using names, bash CNN moderators Dana Bash, Don Lemon, and Jake Tapper for their debate setup being a “WWE”-style slugfest that should be “throw[n] in the river” for the betterment of candidates and…

Could the term "Larval Scalias" become an internet meme embraced by both the left and the right?

December 6th, 2017 2:11 PM
Although most of the mainstream media are reluctant to concede that President Donald Trump has been on a win streak lately, we have confirmation of this from a rather unlikely source: Charles Pierce of Esquire magazine.

September 27th, 2017 5:30 PM
Since Tuesday night, many lefty pundits have been mostly (though not completely) distracted from President Trump by Roy Moore’s win in Alabama’s Republican U.S. Senate primary.

September 2nd, 2017 11:20 AM
Was Ronald Reagan the original Washington wizard? Esquire’s Charles Pierce seems to think so. Pierce argued on Wednesday that in the 1980s, an ideological “spell…was cast” by the Gipper and his allies, and that as a result of various right-wing policies enacted since then, Harvey-related damage to the Houston area will be a lot worse than it should have been. “The…

July 25th, 2017 3:34 PM
The liberal media never help themselves, do they?

After Odd Lapse Last Week, NYT Again All for Free Speech: Its Own
July 4th, 2017 5:55 PM
The New York Times has been quite dismissive of the right to free speech when the right wing is involved, calling it a “canard” abused by racists. Yet the Times can be quite protective when it comes to (imaginary) threats to its own free speech, as shown by two stories on Monday. Both stories reacted to a provocative tweet by Donald Trump -- a video repurposing an old clip of Trump…
