MSNBC Hosts Wrongly Claim Ohio Purges Nonvoters After Two Elections
January 11th, 2018 12:20 AM
On Wednesday, MSNBC was doing its part to spread misinformation that bolsters liberal spin on alleged "voter suppression" by Republicans as anchors Craig Melvin and Hallie Jackson -- hosting MSNBC Live at different times of day -- both wrongly claimed that, according to Ohio law, voters can be removed from the voting rolls if they fail to vote in just two consecutive elections.…

October 23rd, 2017 9:12 PM
On Tuesday, a man admitted that, as written up at Cleveland.com, the website of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, he killed his 27-year-old daughter in September 2016 "because he felt she disrespected his rules about coming home late and failing to clean up her room." One of those rules was clearly: Don't date non-Muslim men. Though he avoided using the actual term, PD …
Ohio Editor In WashPost: 'The Media's Martyr Complex Is Embarrassing'
July 14th, 2017 9:52 PM
The Washington Post published a surprising op-ed on Friday. The online headline was "The media's martyr complex is embarrassing." (The last two words somehow didn't fit in the newspaper headline.) It's the latest article the Post has published from Gary Abernathy, publisher and editor of the Hillsboro (Ohio) Times-Gazette.
Columbus Dispatch, AP Fail To Cite Minimum Wage in Wendy's Kiosk Move
March 2nd, 2017 8:30 AM
A week ago, the Columbus Dispatch reported that Wendy's, the fast-food chain, announced "plans to install self-ordering kiosks in 1,000 of its stores — about 16 percent of its locations — by the end of the year." Although company officials observed 18 months ago that such a move would be inevitable if the trend towards laws demanding far-above-market minimum wages…
Kaine Falsely Claims Clinton Foundation Now Not Accepting Foreign $$
September 6th, 2016 11:27 PM
Since most of the truth about the Clinton Foundation hurts the candidacy of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, her campaign appears to have adopted the strategy of having Tim Kaine, her hapless running mate, lie about its activities and decisions to local reporters, while hoping that nobody outside the local viewing area gets wise to the tactic. With New Media and partisan…
Cox Scribe: Vigilante, Police Brutality Killed Trayvon, Michael Brown
July 27th, 2016 11:45 AM
Gateway Pundit dubbed the Democratic National Convention's program Tuesday evening as "Criminal Appreciation Night." Site proprietor Jim Hoft certainly has a point. The party officially nominated a candidate for the highest office in the land who committed acknowledged and admitted criminal acts, but whom the FBI and the intensely politicized Justice Department chose not to…
AP, Plain Dealer Promoted a Tuesday Anti-Trump Rally; It's on Thursday
July 19th, 2016 11:56 PM
It's a good thing all those layers of fact-checkers and proofreaders are out there in the establishment press making sure that they don't misinform their readers about the dates and times of impending events.
Oh, wait a minute. Both Cleveland.com, the home website of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and the Associated Press promoted a "Stand Together Against Trump" rally as if it…

ESPN's Justice Warriors Prod LeBron for Quitting Gun-Control Activism
May 5th, 2016 9:42 AM
ESPN, not content to cover sports, wants in on the burgeoning social-justice market as well. In “Waiting for LeBron," an ESPN magazine essay, Washington Post reporter Eli Saslow pondered why Cleveland Cavaliers basketball legend LeBron James backed off his brief anti-gun activism. Saslow’s histrionic analysis of James “the athlete and the activist” makes it clear that…
Reds Baseball Announcer Apologizes For Saying 'Game of Sissies'
April 21st, 2016 11:58 PM
I didn't realize this, but then again I played youth sports back in the Mesozoic Era. When an exasperated coach called us "sissies" for not trying hard enough, whining about routine bumps and bruises, or (in baseball) not sliding, they were, according to today's ignorant PC police, hitting us with an anti-homosexual slur. Horse manure; no they weren't. They simply didn't…
Cincinnati Paper Plays Race Card in Lookback at Area Hit by 2001 Riots
April 12th, 2016 1:33 AM
Despite the decay of the left-dominated blue-city model during the past several decades, liberals and the press are not fans of many urban neighborhood improvement efforts.
One recent example found at a national media outlet is at Newsweek, where on April 2, Alexander Nazaryan, in an item headlined "WHITE CITY: THE NEW URBAN BLIGHT IS RICH PEOPLE," wrote that "…

Paper: Trump Rally Cancelled Because 'His Supporters Became Violent'
March 14th, 2016 9:01 AM
Layers of editors and fact-checkers at the Columbus (OH) Dispatch and others involved in its production "somehow" failed to detect the creation of an obviously false caption to a campaign rally photo of Donald Trump taken by a St. Louis Post-Dispatch photographer.
The photo, taken on Friday at Trump's St. Louis appearance by the Post-Dispatch's David Carson, had the…
'Journalists' Deserve Most of the Blame for Newsroom Shrinkage
March 6th, 2016 12:15 PM
Columbia Journalism professor Dale Maharidge has produced a lengthy lament about the state of print and newsroom journalism, and how hard it's been on those forced out of their jobs. It's present online at The Nation, one of the far-left's flagships, and at BillMoyers.com, the web site of the former Johnson administration press secretary. The delusional Moyers believes that "We…
