Ecstatic Atlantic: Rapinoe Is ‘Her Generation’s Muhammad Ali’

July 7th, 2019 5:13 PM
The U.S. Women’s Team won the World Cup, so I guess American patriotism isn’t stupid and embarassing anymore. Still, if you’re tempted to start chanting “U.S.A!” check with the New York Times first. While you’re at it, stop by The Atlantic for a tutorial on why Team U.S.A. has lefties sounding like red state jingos. (Talk about embarrassing.)

The Matrix at 20

August 8th, 2018 2:15 PM
Next year marks the 20th anniversary of the sci-fi movie classic “The Matrix,” which depicts powerful machines attempting to subdue the human race. Sometimes art imitates life, and sometimes it’s the other way around. On occasion, art can be prophetic. “The Matrix” is such a film. It warns of a future in which the power and worth of the individual is subsumed into one giant interconnected world…

Morning Joe Compares I.C.E to the Fugitive Slave Act

August 7th, 2018 4:45 PM
In yet another unbelievable display of liberal media bias, Morning Joe guest and Princeton Professor Eddie Glaude took to comparing Immigration and Customs Enforcement to the Fugitive Slave Act on Monday morning. Glaude's line of questioning was in line with the modern left, for which the abolishment of I.C.E. has been a goal and has even been demanded from both members of the House and Senate…

Mass Resignations at The New Republic

December 5th, 2014 1:56 PM
Today it was announced that The New Republic, which celebrated it's 100th anniversary a month ago, has been hit by mass resignations. It appears that due to unwanted changes by its owner, Chris Hughes, few are willing to remain at the magazine long noted as being a mainstay of conventional liberalism.

Yes, Obama Really Does Believe Media Are Too Nice to Republicans

January 28th, 2013 5:25 PM
Those who doubt the idea that modern liberalism is essentially about denying reality need to hear the latest laughable bit of media analysis from President Barack Obama. According to the former junior senator from Illinois, the American media elite, the same group of people who have described themselves as "swooning" for him, is actually too nice to Republicans. This same group of people has…

Obama: I'd Get More Done If GOP Wasn't Punished By Fox and Limbaugh fo

January 27th, 2013 3:22 PM
"If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you'll see more of them doing it." So said Barack Obama in an interview just published by The New Republic:

New Republic's Foer Praises McCain on Climate Change

February 4th, 2008 3:53 PM
Sen. John McCain may not have won the favor of Rush Limbaugh or Ann Coulter, but he has some upside in the eyes of The New Republic Editor Franklin Foer. Foer appeared at Politics & Prose in Washington, D.C., on February 1 to promote his new book, "Election 2008: A Voter's Guide." "[I] think that McCain has certain political virtues that other Republicans don't, which is that…

Scott Beauchamp's 'Shock Troops' Statements

January 22nd, 2008 1:18 PM
Cross-posted at Confederate Yankee.After the article "Shock Troops" in The New Republic had been challenged by critics , a documentary filmmaker/blogger by the name of JD Johannes narrowed down the search of the author to Alpha Company, 1-18 Infantry, Second Brigade Combat Team, First Infantry Division on July21. Three days after that on July 24, the military began a formal investigation, which…

Media Slowly Coming to Cover New Republic Beauchamp Retractions

December 4th, 2007 12:56 PM
The TNR saga is slowly seeping into the media, with posts this morning at the Washington Post and the New York Times, in addition to last night's mention in the New York Observer. Not a single one of these outlets discusses the fact that Franklin Foer spent the better part of 13 pages alleging a military conspiracy spanning four bases in three countries involving dozens of soldiers, from…

New Republic Folds Its Cards

December 1st, 2007 4:59 PM
It took fourteen pages--13 of those geared towards Franklin' Foer's attempt to keep his job--but here's the punchline: When I last spoke with Beauchamp in early November, he continued to stand by his stories. Unfortunately, the standards of this magazine require more than that. And, in light of the evidence available to us, after months of intensive re-reporting, we cannot be confident that the…

New Republic's Last Stand on Beauchamp

November 27th, 2007 4:13 PM
1/18 Infantry, Second Brigade Combat Team, First Infantry Division, rotated out of Iraqi several weeks ago to their home base in Schweinfurt, Germany. This included noted fabulist Scott Thomas Beauchamp. Whether Beauchamp is still in Germany or has been allowed home on leave is rather irrelevant; he matters quite little now that he has established that he will not support his dark fantasies on…

Who's Sponsoring New Republic's Stonewalling on Beauchamp

October 29th, 2007 10:32 AM
Scott Beauchamp doesn't matter. He's a twice-AWOL serial liar with a pending mental health evaluation who can't write believable military fiction EVEN WHILE IN THE MILITARY. He's powerless, has been tried, found guilty and punished, and at this point, a distraction. We've been focusing on the wrong things. What matters is the New Republic's advertisers. No, not their editors, their advertisers…

TNR's Foer Sticks by Beauchamp, Who Won't Defend His Writing Publicly
