No Anthem Kneelers on Remaining NFL Playoff Teams; NBC Hardest Hit?
January 18th, 2018 1:00 PM
On Monday, Valerie Richardson at the Washington Times noted that no teams with players who continued to kneel during the National Anthem before National Football League games until the end of the regular season qualified for the playoffs. A sports psychologist sees a potentially important lesson in this result, while NBC, which has promised to showcase kneeling players during the Anthem before…
Hollywood Films Warning of Climate Change Lost Audiences During 2017
December 29th, 2017 7:46 PM
How many people went to the movie theaters in the past 12 months to watch such films as Blade Runner 2049, Geostorm, Downsizing or An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power?
If you’re not one of them, you’re not alone. Each of those movies featured the catastrophic results of climate change and global warming as one of its major plot points, which failed to draw audiences in 2017.
Despite Developments, AP, NY Times Have Ignored Fusion GPS For 4 Weeks
November 30th, 2017 8:57 PM
The truth about Fusion GPS's involvement with creating, promoting, and disseminating the infamous Trump-Russia dossier has slowly emerged during the past four weeks. Yet, based on site searches, the Associated Press and New York Times have not published a single substantive, genuinely related in-house story in over four weeks.
Let's Help Our Media Friends
November 2nd, 2017 2:23 PM
I am not nearly so coldhearted and unsympathetic toward the mainstream media as some of my conservative friends, such as Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Chris Plante and Ann Coulter. In fact, my heart goes out to them. As evidence of the same, if I had President Donald Trump's ear, I'd urge him to declare this coming Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017, a day of remembrance and…
NYT's Rutenberg Blames Fox, NY Post for Covering Hillary-Russia Ties
November 1st, 2017 2:23 PM
According to New York Times media reporter and columnist Jim Rutenberg, only the right side of the media aisle is trying to make news, while the dominant mainstream side (including his newpspaer) is as fair and objective as can be. Rutenberg launched another attack on Rupert Murdoch’s media empire for failing to ignore Russia-related controversies on the Democrat side of the aisle, in his…
Threats Force Loesch to Move Her Family; Piers Morgan Is OK With That
October 23rd, 2017 11:59 PM
When they're not ignoring these matters completely, the press only usually only reluctantly notices when conservative business owners and public figures are harassed, threatened, have their property destroyed, and are sometimes even physically harmed. Beyond that, some press members seem to and sometimes actually act as if the victims should know, understand and accept that this kind of…
Vox Memorial Day Special: Marines Have 'Toxic Masculinity' Problem
May 30th, 2017 3:58 PM
Memorial Day media coverage didn't seem to have many lowlights this year. One glaring exception: Vox.com's decision to publish Alex Ward's hit piece going after the U.S. Marine Corps and its alleged culture of "toxic masculinity" on the one day set aside every year to honor all military men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Press Ignores Portland, Ore. Parade Cancellation After Threats to GOP
April 27th, 2017 7:00 PM
A development has occurred which should erase any doubt that basic freedoms are in serious jeopardy in much of blue-state America. It is at least as disturbing as the failure of the University of California at Berkeley and the Berkeley Police Department to provide for the safety of conservative Ann Coulter, leading to the cancellation of her planned appearance there.
Nets Downplay Protester Wrongs As Authorities Evacuate Dakota Camp
March 1st, 2017 5:29 PM
Just as they didn’t seem to mind Dakota Access Pipeline protesters’ arson, rioting and violence, the network news media failed to condemn the hypocrisy of self-proclaimed “water protectors” leaving behind mountains of trash now threatening to pollute the Missouri River.
The last people protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline were evicted after North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum…
Total Lack of Media Objectivity Surrounds DC’s Assisted Suicide Bill
February 27th, 2017 5:07 PM
The media is at it again trying to make news instead of reporting it concerning DC’s Assisted Suicide bill. The media has played cozy with the pro-suicide crowd in framing the argument to their liking, namely that only religious people are opposed to assisted suicide and only because they want to impose their values. They also have taken what has been and should be a bipartisan issue and…
Thomas and the Nat'l Museum of African American History and Culture
December 23rd, 2016 1:35 PM
WASHINGTON — Recently, a voice of the conservative media did what he is supposed to do, to wit, tell the rest of the story. The mainstream media only tells America part of the story. They tell us how they perceive the world and leave it at that. This is why so much of recent American journalism — and indeed, history — is so unsatisfactory to sentient observers. Journalism and…
The Mad Search for Pro-Trump Columnists
December 15th, 2016 2:08 PM
WASHINGTON — Over the weekend some pathetic wretch — obviously a casualty of the Nov. 8 election — writing under the pen name Paul Farhi filed a column in the Washington Post lamenting that after an extensive search of the newspapers of this great country, he could hardly find any pro-Trump columnists.
Communist Party USA Endorses Hillary; Media Yawns
September 3rd, 2016 8:31 PM
The media just loves the Ku Klux Klan. Here’s a small sampling of headlines: The New York Daily News: Donald Trump supported by former KKK leader David Duke: 'I hope he does everything we hope he will do’ Then there was USA Today: Former Ku Klux Klan leader declares support for Donald Trump
The Media Make History
August 26th, 2016 3:19 PM
WASHINGTON -- This week I am going to do something unusual. I am going to enter into a conversation with another columnist. Doing so was not so unusual a few decades back. Bill Buckley and James Jackson Kilpatrick did it when provoked, and it was always interesting. But today columnists are godlike figures. They communicate solely with Mount Olympus, and the result is often a bit tedious.
