Mask-Fixated NYT Blasts Boris for Lax Covid Rules, Mocks 'Freedom Day'
The New York Times refuses to let go of masks, in any sense, and won’t forgive Conservative United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson for reopening public life this summer after highly restrictive COVID lockdowns.

Travel Narrows the Mind
Washington -- Or should I dateline this column "Mid-Atlantic" or just "On the Ground at Heathrow?" Whatever, I feel this column is being written at 35,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, and I am anticipating great fun when I arrive in London. London is always great fun: nightclubs, restaurants, dozens of literate friends -- even a few useful lectures and concerts. Years ago, I could boast of…

THIS Is a New One! CNN Blames... Brexit for Soccer Racism in Europe
It is an unfortunate fact of life that social media allows people to say all sorts of horrible things that they would never say to a person's face.

Corrupt CBS Pins Racist Soccer Hate in England on Conservative PM
It’s not just American conservatives that the corrupt journalists at CBS This Morning try and slime as racist.

NY Times Scorns UK Racism Report: You Didn't Condemn Bigoted Britain!
The United Kingdom commissioned a report on race. It offered an optimistic view, saying institutional racism for minorities no longer blocked minority achievement in the UK.

The New York Times didn’t show much Christmas spirit when it likened the sudden stringent new Christmas-season corona restrictions put in place by U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson to Brexit.
