Jeff Greenfield wrote an article in the March 25 Politico Magazine about the time Hollywood produced a movie about an American president who became a fascist. So how long do you think it was before the inevitable name of Trump appeared? Well, you didn't even have to wait to begin reading the article, The Hollywood Hit Movie That Urged FDR to Become a Fascist, because you had this in the subtitle, Mostly forgotten now, ‘Gabriel Over the White House’ is worth watching to understand the Trump era.
Michael Grunwald expressed his anger in Politico magazine at Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel. He is upset because Sheriff Israel's inept leadership has diverted attention away from the anti-NRA narrative being promoted by the left and the mainstream media. Yes, instead of being primarily concerned about how the sheriff overlooked dozens of red flags that allowed the tragic shooting to take place on Valentine's Day in Parkland Florida at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Grunwald focused his ire upon him because the sheriff, not the NRA, became the primary target of anger.
A majority of Americans now support the tax reform package passed by Congress and signed into law by Donald Trump just over two months ago. Just don’t expect the media to tell you about it.
The recent media frenzy over EPA administrator Scott Pruitt’s travel expenses and use of first-class cabins, often lacked crucial information — like the death threats he has received.
According to The Wall Street Journal in November 2017, Pruitt gets five times as many threats as the previous EPA administrator and there had been “explicit death threats.” His family was also threatened. Yet, some media outlets completely ignored the existence of threats as they criticized his travel costs.
Democrats have an ancient holy ritual called Adoration of the Blessed Kennedy. Its latest iteration appears in the February 6 Politico Magazine in which their chief Washington correspondent, Edward-Isaac Dovere, breathlessly reports on the possibility of a new assumption of the presidency by a Kennedy... The wet-lipped Joe Kennedy III.
In a Politico podcast released on Friday morning, U.S. Ambassador for the United Nations, Nikki Haley, tore into Trump gossip book author Michael Wolff’s “disgusting,” “highly offensive,” and sexist rumor that alleged without evidence that she’s been sleeping with President Trump.

At the Politico on Wednesday, Dan Diamond and Jennifer Haberkorn tried to portray a plan by the federal governments HHS to increase health workers' conscience protections as something vaguely sinister. In the process, they completely misstated the history of what they called "so-called conscience protections," and dishonestly whined that HHS's plan to enforce existing law is "a significant shift for the (HHS's Civil Rights) office."
Schadenfreude, schadenfreude, oh beautiful, beautiful schadenfreude! You will soon be able to enjoy some great Election Night 2016 schadenfreude again in the form of HBO's documentary, The Final Year, which will soon be broadcast on that network. As you can see from the trailer below it appears to be mostly a big borefest of Obama administration hype about how wonderful and wise they were. However, its saving grace is that the HBO film crew was at a Hillary "victory" party hosted by former UN Ambassador Samantha Power to celebrate Hillary Clinton winning the election.
If recently retired New York Times publisher, Arthur O. "Pinch" Sulzberger, expected to finally receive some respect now that he has turned the keys of his newspaper kingdom over to his son, A.G. Sulzberger, he would be quite disappointed after reading the January 14 Politico Magazine story. Senior Media Writer Jack Shafer ridicules Sulzberger and how he ran the Times during his quarter century reign there until he retired on January 1. The profile of just how out of his depth the elder Sulzberger was is brought to us as part of advice to Sulzberger the Younger in which Shafer suggests that he Sell the New York Times. Now.
At Politico, consistency has never been a strong point. Somehow, the just-signed tax law supposedly won't have that much of an effect on Americans' economic behavior, but there's no doubt that the bill's tiny cuts in taxes on alcoholic beverages will bring about disastrous results.
This one's for the "They can't possibly believe what they're writing" file. Thursday morning, Ben White and Nancy Cook at Politico actually claimed that President Donald Trump is building "his 2018 political message by rebranding" predecessor Barack Obama's "economic legacy."
On Thursday's MTP Daily on MSNBC, during the show's regular "The Lid" segment, substitute host Katy Tur and her three guests fretted over the failure of gun control advocates to pass any new gun laws in the aftermath of high-profile mass shootings in 2017. Even the lone Republican-leaning panel member -- MSNBC contributor Susan Del Percio -- was coming down on the left-leaning side of the issue as she also seemed unhappy with Congress moving ahead with expanding concealed carry rights nationwide.
