MSNBC Likens Trump in Tulsa to Reagan 'Dog Whistle' Speech
June 22nd, 2020 4:41 PM
Over the past week, as journalists and liberal commentators have been fixated on the timing and location of President Donald Trump's campaign rally on Juneteenth weekend in Tulsa, Oklahoma, they have again been peddling the debunked myth that President Ronald Reagan launched his 1980 presidential campaign in Philadelphia, Mississippi, in Neshoba County, in an effort to appeal to Southern white…
NY Times Catches Up on Hysteria Over 'Internment Camp' at Fort Sill
June 23rd, 2019 2:42 PM
The New York Times must have regretted missing out on the misleading and slanted coverage of the rest of the press earlier this month, when multiple outlets blared the claim that housing child migrants at Fort Sill in Oklahoma would be locking them up in a former Japanese “internment camp.” But the paper made up for it with Ben Fenwick’s coverage of a subsequent protest on…
Lost, Buried, Burned: Oklahoma's Rape Kit Scandal
February 13th, 2019 2:57 PM
If you are puzzled by the nationwide rape kit testing backlog, Oklahoma provides maddening insight on the bureaucratic forces that create intolerable inertia — and injustice. An estimated 225,000 rape kits have gone unprocessed across the country; more than 7,200 have been neglected in Oklahoma.

April 15th, 2018 5:37 PM
The New York Times found yet another angle from which to attack the Republicans as the 2018 elections loom.

Pyongyang on the Prairie, Part I
December 6th, 2017 11:05 PM
A criminal justice system that operates in the dark is arbitrary, unjust and criminal. In Oklahoma this year, a Kafkaesque set of sealed motions, secret orders and closed-door hearings completely shut out a criminal defendant, his public defenders and the public. A trial judge served as handmaiden for the prosecutors, even failing to notify the defendant and his lawyers of the kangaroo court…
AP, Media Show They Can Dish It Out But Can't Take It in EPA Spat
September 10th, 2017 11:25 PM
As of late Sunday afternoon, the Associated Press's coverage of potential contamination resulting from Hurricane Irma in Florida, certainly a legitimate issue, was remarkably measured. That dispatch's tone starkly contrasted with how the AP, without genuine basis, went after the U.S. EPA after Hurricane Harvey in Texas, and how childishly it reacted when the EPA pushed back hard against…

'Islamophobia Victim' 3 Years Ago Arrested in Turkey as Part of ISIS
November 24th, 2015 9:49 PM
There are plenty of problems with the government's "no-fly list," and especially the plans by some congressmen and senators to abuse it. That said, it appears, almost three years later, to have gotten one name right.
In late 2012 and early 2013, leftists like Chris Hayes at MSNBC, Glenn Greenwald and Kevin Drum at Mother Jones were upset that Saadiq Long, a U.S. Air Force veteran…
Networks Ignore OK Court Calling for Removal of 10 Commandments Statue
July 1st, 2015 12:28 AM
On Tuesday night, the major broadcast networks refused to cover the latest news regarding the fight for religious liberty as Oklahoma’s Supreme Court ruled hours earlier that a Ten Commandments monument at the State Captiol grounds in Oklahoma City must be removed due to it being “obviously religious in nature” and “an integral part of the Jewish and Christian faiths.…
To Leftists, Sanctimony, Grandstanding Are More Fun Than Free Speech

What a 'Bizarre Coincidence': A Second Beheading Story in Oklahoma
September 29th, 2014 10:16 AM
As I noted Sunday evening, Fox News's Megyn Kelly, on her Friday show, characterized the beheading of Colleen Hufford at the hands of Alton Nolen, if true, as "the first American beheading on American soil reportedly in the name of jihad."
It turns out that someone allegedly tried to beat Nolen out for that distinction, and failed. Take a look at what the Oklahoman's Nolan…
AP, MSNBC Trying to Downplay Terrorism in Reporting on Okla. Beheading
September 27th, 2014 9:31 AM
The establishment press, and now apparently the FBI, have a problem on their hands: an alleged killer who converted to Islam; expressed sentiments favored by terrorists; killed a woman by employing terrorists' favored method, i.e., beheading; shouted Islamic slogans while carrying out his evil deed; and was trying to kill someone else when another armed person shot and wounded him.
