Fashion Writer: Hillary in White, 'Hopeful'; Melania in White, Racist
August 2nd, 2016 9:26 AM
White is ok, so long as it’s worn by the Democratic nominee. Two weeks ago, Philadelphia Enquirer fashion critic Elizabeth Wellington bashed Melania Trump for daring to wear a white dress for her RNC speech. Wellington acknowledged that “on a strictly fashion note,” Melania pulled off an “angelic look.” But the white designer dress was a “scary statement,…
Fashion Writer: Melania's Dress Choice Implies 'White Is Always Right'
July 22nd, 2016 3:01 PM
Apparently, Washington Post fashion writer Robin Givhan isn’t the only newspaper dress-grader to drop political bombs into her critiques. Philadelphia Inquirer critic Elizabeth Wellington loved Melania Trump’s dress as an “an exquisitely put together if not angelic look.” But on a strictly political note, it apparently underlines her husband’s view that “white…

When the government pushes to destroy America’s biggest source of energy, you can certainly trust the media to jump on board.
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…
Philly.com Boss Endorses Democrat on Twitter, Will Lefty Media Critics
June 10th, 2013 3:19 PM
Of late, many left-wing media critics have been ostensibly interested in protecting the independence of journalism from hypothetical conservative media ownership. Unfortunately, as Howard Kurtz pointed out over the weekend, these people are remarkably cavalier when the left-leaning billionaires like Warren Buffett start buying up media outlets.
Another example of how such critics are not very…

AP: ‘Abortions Are Typically Performed In Utero
March 21st, 2013 1:52 PM
As both Matthew Balan and Mark Steyn have noted, the mainstream media has for the most part gone missing in reporting the murder trial of late-term Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell.
Gosnell, his wife Pearl, and eight employees stand accused of murdering seven newborn abortion survivors and one mother. Not only has MSM gone missing, when it does report on this horrendous story, it often…

August 29th, 2012 5:01 PM
The keynote speaker at the Republican National Convention spoke of the importance of respect early on in his speech last night, especially when it’s compared to the fleeting nature of popularity for anyone in a leadership role.
But alas some in the liberal media were far too busy thinking of jokes they could make at the New Jersey governor’s expense rather than actually listen to…

February 28th, 2011 12:09 PM
The secular mainstream media often do a shoddy job of accurately reporting on religious news, but this takes the cake.
Writing about how the Rev. James St. George was terminated earlier this month from his post as part-time professor at Chestnut Hill College, the Associated Press insisted the openly gay man "belong[s] to a branch of Catholicism not associated with the Vatican that has…

May 26th, 2010 12:22 PM
The New York Times's former Middle East Bureau Chief thinks violent revolt is a laudable response to economic woes, and that murder is at least acceptable in pursuit of a far-left agenda. The media so concerned with the potential for violence from conservative groups are completely silent."Here’s to the Greeks," wrote Chris Hedges at Truthdig.com. "They know what to do when…
Media Reaction to 'Ellie Light' Scandal: You're Welcome for the Letter
January 28th, 2010 5:15 PM
After getting caught with their pants down on letter-to-the-editor pages, newspapers around the country apparently haven't embarrassed themselves enough yet. Instead of admitting Ellie Light's submission should never have gotten published, editors have recently tried to save face by using remarkable spin: opinion pages are a "privilege" that people should be thankful for, even if they…
