New York Times’ London bureau chief Mark Landler’s obsessive hostility toward mogul Rupert Murdoch’s right-leaning media empire was on display Wednesday.

September 12th, 2019 4:19 PM
Occasional dispatches from Downunder in the last few years have shown Australians doing their bit to facilitate the Western Civilization’s cultural suicide.

(Of course, in their case, it goes…

June 21st, 2019 8:07 AM

Kathy Griffin: ‘I’m No Longer Sorry’ For Trump Severed Head Photo
August 29th, 2017 3:51 PM
Disgraced comedian Kathy Griffin is trying to make a comeback, after she posed holding the bloody, severed head of our president in a magazine spread, earned her criticism from both the left and right back in May. A few days later Griffin offered a teary apology, that was part remorse, part pity-party and she was quickly shuffled out of the media spotlight. Now Griffin is hoping to capitalize on…

In what certainly won’t be the latest case of irony in the liberal media, Tuesday’s CBS Evening News immediately pivoted from a full report on surging gun sales in the United States following mass shootings to a piece prominently touting Australia’s massive gun control and confiscation initiatives carried out in the 1990's.

Five Climate-Change Claims as Ridiculous as Sharknado
July 29th, 2014 11:27 AM
“Sharknado 2: The Second One” is poised to take a bite out of Manhattan and devour many of the week’s water-cooler conversations. Like the first “Sharknado” movie, the premise is so ridiculous it actually manages to entertain.
In the same way, some media claims about what climate change has already done or threatens to do in the future are so absurd they’…
Al Gore Denounced in Australian Press as Money Hungry 'Ferengi' for Su

Imagine if in America there were a coal mining magnate as famous as Donald Trump who was the founder of a political party named after himself (Trump United Party?). In addition, this well known person would be strongly opposed to a carbon tax. Obviously such a person would be considered an enemy by environmentalists. Well, think of the shock if none other than Al Gore held a friendly joint…

March 5th, 2011 8:00 AM
Most parents think of video games as a child's pursuit, especially the innocent ones. Many people who bought a Nintendo Wii video game system would consider this the most innocent of them all.

October 24th, 2010 9:36 PM
Not that it justifies the horrible consequences of leaking classifed information, thereby endangering our troops, our allies, our friends, and their families (of course it doesn't), but the WikiLeaked documents being carried at outlets like the New York Times are revealing some truths that are proving quite inconvenient for Iraq war opponents.
