Violent leftist mobs driving conservative speakers off campus is a story often sidelined by a liberal media reluctant to make the enemies of their conservative enemies look bad.

Associated Partisans: No Party ID for Corrupt Dems, Unlike the GOP
June 13th, 2016 10:13 PM
The Associated Press is still the king of the wire services, used by most newspapers and TV stations (and even radio stations, if you can find news on them). So when it acts like Associated Partisans, it still packs a political punch.
When Democrats plead guilty of taking bribes in California, somehow today the AP couldn’t use the word “Democrat” anywhere in the piece (and The Washington Post…

In a sympathetic interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow that aired on Friday night, socialist presidential contender Bernie Sanders insisted the American people are "a little bit tired of corporate media" and "we have got to think about ways that the Democratic Party, for a start, starts funding the equivalent of Fox television."
Even The Huffington Post thought that sounded a little funny: "Of…
Press Ignores How Sanders Is the Really Angry Candidate — and Person
September 20th, 2015 9:55 AM
We've been told for over 20 years — at least since pundits falsely claimed that "angry white men" drove the GOP takeover of Congress in 1994 — that Republicans and conservatives have far more issues with anger than liberals and socialists. In the the 2016 presidential election cycle, current frontrunner Republican Donald Trump and especially his supporters have often been described in media…

Cal Thomas Column: The 'Boring' 2012 Campaign
August 8th, 2012 11:25 AM
PLYMOUTH NOTCH, Vt. -- Two of my pundit colleagues -- David Brooks of The New York Times and Peggy Noonan of The Wall Street Journal -- have written about this "boring" and "inconsequential" presidential campaign.
Perhaps the reason is that we've heard it all before. "There is nothing new under the sun," wrote the author of Ecclesiastes, but that doesn't mean old ideas that worked in the past…
