February 15th, 2021 10:51 PM

One would think that outspoken atheist Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a feminist critic of religion, would earn the approval of the liberal New York Times.

May 1st, 2017 5:34 PM
The New York Times is rather desperately still trying to make the idea of a recent, election-related surge in hate crimes stick, even after so many infamous “hate crimes” have been exposed as hoaxes in the Trump era.

It took two weeks after the mass slaughter by radical Islamists in Paris, but the New York Times finally finds itself comfortable with raising the false spectre of American "Islamophobia," with an enormous assist from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the so-called civil-rights organization many consider a Muslim pressure group, and whose ties to Hamas have been…

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof twisted numbers and lowered the moral bar while trying to prove "The Diversity of Islam."

The media on the left side of the aisle took more umbrage with a Newsweek article titled, Muslim Rage, than they did with the…

Meet the Conservative Intellectual Elite: Kathleen Parker, David Frum

PBS's Tavis Smiley: Far More Christian Terrorists Than Muslim Ones, Te

May 28th, 2010 1:40 PM
Tavis Smiley has apparently been asleep for the last ten years. That, at least, is the only logical explanation for his claim that Christains engage in terrorism far more often than Muslims. He also thinks the Tea Party is a comparably dangerous force to radical Islam."There are so many more examples of Christians who do that," Smiley claimed, referring to terrorism, "than you…
