Liberal Panic Now That Benghazi Fiasco Finally Getting Real Coverage

May 12th, 2013 12:20 AM
There is no escaping the fact that, where Benghazi is concerned, there is blood in the water and the mainstream media has (at long last) picked up the scent. Yesterday, the sharks representing the three major TV networks circled Press Secretary Jay Carney, bombarding him with questions that were uncharacteristically tough. ABC’s Jonathan Karl, who broke the story that the talking…

Liberal Media Cheer on Pro-Gay Discrimination

June 18th, 2012 2:38 PM
The week of June 16-June 24, 2012 has been designated by the homosexual community as Gay Pride Week, during which LGBT people take pride in their triumphs over “violence and discrimination against gay, lesbian, and transgendered individuals.” Funny, but they’re not making much noise about using government to discriminate in favor of their…

AP Report on Institute Burning in Egypt an Exercise in Reality Avoidan

December 26th, 2011 10:44 PM
A month ago, Aya Batrawy at the Associated Press's Egyptian bureau described those who ransacked the Israeli embassy in Cairo as "protesters," and absurdly asserted in the face of contrary evidence I was able to find in about five minutes that "the historic 1979 peace treaty with Israel ... has never had the support of ordinary Egyptians." Last week, in the wake of the…

Steyn Ridicules Press's Insistence on Calling Budget Ideas 'Plans'; No

July 23rd, 2011 8:28 PM
On Wednesday evening (at NewsBusters; at BizzyBlog), I noted the absurdity of Associated Press coverage characterizing the 5-page document with 3-1/2 whole pages of text issued by the "Gang of Six" as a "plan" -- 12 times, plus in the item's headline. Though I didn't bring it up then, an obvious point to make about any of these items floating around Washington is…

Mark Steyn Wallops Lindsey Graham On Latest Call to 'Shut Up

June 20th, 2011 6:44 AM
On Sunday's Meet the Press, Sen. Lindsey Graham said “Congress should sort of shut up and not empower Qaddafi” by discussing the possibility of cutting off funding for military operations there. He also said it was a boo-boo for Republican candidates to think that getting “to the left” of Obama on war is a path to victory in the GOP primary. At National Review's…

Poll Suggests Even 'Moderate' Muslims Have Extreme Beliefs

December 20th, 2010 1:21 PM
In his seminal book "America Alone", Mark Steyn offered this definition of a "moderate Muslim": He's a Muslim who wants stoning for adultery to be introduced in Liverpool, but he's a "moderate" because he can't be bothered flying a plane into a skyscraper to get it.

Establishment Press Largely Covers Obama's Tracks on Disgraceful Danie

May 22nd, 2010 10:48 AM
President Barack Obama's statement just before he signed the Freedom of the Press Act on Monday painfully avoided reality to the point of giving offense. If it became widely known, it would likely become very problematic. Here is what the President said that was particularly offensive (bolds are mine): And obviously the loss of Daniel Pearl was one of those moments that captured the world’s…

Dutch Politician Prosecuted for 'Insulting Muslim Worshipers', Where's

January 27th, 2009 5:51 AM
In a move strikingly similar to Canada's inquisition of Mark Steyn a Dutch court has ordered that Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders be prosecuted for expressing his belief that there is a clear connection between Islam and violence. Wilders is the creator of a movie titled "Fitna" which seeks to "stop Islamisation" and "defend our freedom". He has also equated the…

Is NYT Writer Sympathetic to Conservative Speech Suppression

June 11th, 2008 3:31 PM
The New York Times is in the midst of publishing a series of articles called "American Exception." Its purpose is to "examine commonplace aspects of the American justice system that are virtually unique in the world." The latest in the series is by Adam Liptak. It carries a June 12 date, and is called "Out of Step With Allies, U.S. Defends Freedom to Offend." If…

Mark Steyn and the Canadian Inquisition

June 10th, 2008 11:58 AM
Typically one does not associate the word inquisition with our neighbors up north in Canada, and yet that is pretty much what is going on there to conservative author and columnist Mark Steyn. Minus the violence, Steyn is being subjected to a twisted court system that always finds defendants guilty and conducts itself in an utterly capricious way.Steyn's crime? Daring to criticize radical Islam,…

Frightening Canadian Free-Speech Suppression Ignored by US Old Media

January 21st, 2008 7:47 AM
My my, the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) is busy these days -- aiding and abetting those who wish to suppress the human right of free speech and expression. Even though (or is it because?) the vehicle that enabled and emboldened the CHRC's thought police and those who complain to it was the passage of the kind of "non-discrimination" legislation Congress has considered…
