On June 1, the Environmental Protection Agency unveiled drastic new limits on carbon emissions, mandating steep emission cuts within 16 years. It’s a move that may cost hundreds of thousands of jobs each year, but only 13 of the 20 major United States…
Bozell Column: Wendy Davis Lies, Media Elite Snores
February 4th, 2014 11:21 PM
As our liberal media continue to obsess over whether Chris Christie lied about knowing his aides were plotting to cause Bergen County traffic jams, it’s worth remembering that our national networks don’t care when Democrats lie – even about their own life story.
Two weeks ago, reporter Wayne Slater of the Dallas Morning News – the author of two books bashing Karl Rove…
MSNBC's Sharpton Defends Wendy Davis's Misleading Bio, Just 'Minor Det
January 22nd, 2014 6:11 PM
On Tuesday's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, host Al Sharpton pretended that the misleading details liberal hero Wendy Davis has used to exaggerate her biography are merely "minor details" and actually suggested that it is the "right wing" who should be embarrassed by repeating the revelations as he ended his regular "Nice Try" segment by proclaiming:
Will the Press Ignore Wendy Davis's Truth-Free Twitter and Blog Meltdo
January 21st, 2014 8:07 PM
Wow, I'd better get this post done quickly, because Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has been tweeting up a storm and has posted "an open letter" at her web site. If I blink, I might miss a half-dozen more tweets.
Davis apparently thinks that if she accuses Republican candidate Greg Abbott and his campaign of being behind the Sunday Dallas Morning News story…
CBS Repeats the False Wendy Davis Bio Meme: 'Blurred' Lines
January 21st, 2014 3:45 PM
To be fair, it started with the original story broken at the Dallas Morning News, where Wayne Slater's substantive story about Wendy Davis's problems with the truth was headlined "As Wendy Davis touts life story in race for governor, key facts blurred."

Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, who is considered a hero of the pro-abortion crowd yet declared herself "pro-life" in November as her people attempted to bully the local media into twisting stories her way, is blaming her opponent for a Sunday Dallas Morning News story which pointed to significant discrepancies between her campaign biography and the truth.
MSNBC.com Cries Foul Over Republicans Hitting Wendy Davis for Inaccura
January 20th, 2014 6:00 PM
When a politician -- male or female, liberal or conservative -- writes a memoir*, anything therein is fair game for the news media and his or her opponents, particularly when claims made therein are false or misleading. But to the gang at MSNBC, Republican criticism of the network's anointed golden girl Wendy Davis is beyond the pale.
"Right attacks Wendy Davis," screams the top…
Wendy Davis and Ted Cruz Articles Show Dramatic 'Texan of the Year' Ti
December 29th, 2013 10:28 PM
It’s only natural that both liberal state Sen. Wendy Davis and conservative U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz would be nominees for “Texan of the Year” at the Dallas Morning News. (In the end, they chose the rescuers at the West, Texas fertilizer-plant explosion, which killed 12 first responders.) But the two editorials on Davis (on December 26) and Cruz (on December 27) show how liberal…

UPDATE: The full text of the referenced Dallas Morning News item, courtesy of Rich Noyes at the Media Research Center, is here (posted for fair use and discussion purposes).

Matthews Accuses States' Rights Advocates of Racism, Quotes MLK But No
February 11th, 2010 1:29 PM
According to Chris Matthews, the fact that racists have during the history of the nation invoked the rights of the states to perpetuate slavery or segregation immediately renders all proponents of states' rights -- a pillar of federalism and the American Constitution -- racist.While Matthews and his Hardball guests on Tuesday cited names like Jim Crow and John Calhoun and compared them to Texas…
Obama Continues to Break Promises, Media Ignores
January 31st, 2010 1:05 AM
Watching the media's inability to find relevant investigative news during the Obama era is like watching a bald-headed fellow named Fudd hunting for ‘wabbit'. Such is the case of the main stream media's complete and utter ignorance involving the administration recently steering a $25 million no-bid contract to a Democratic campaign contributor. While Fox News reporter James Rosen did an in-…

June 10th, 2009 5:09 PM
Dallas Morning News’s Wayne Slater become one of the first pundits after the shootings at the Holocaust Museum on Wednesday to hint that there was a connection to mainstream conservative activists.
