WashPost Runs Op-Ed From World’s Worst Jailer of Journalists … Again
March 22nd, 2019 5:01 PM
For a newspaper with the motto “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” the Washington Post apparently doesn’t mind sharing the light with a person who has been called the globe’s worst jailer of journalists. Curiously, this isn’t the first time the liberal outlet has published an op-ed by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the president of Turkey -- a country that had at least 68 journalists behind bars at the end of…
Bozell & Graham Column: New Details Ruin Khashoggi Hero Story
January 5th, 2019 7:17 AM
The gruesome murder of Saudi dissident writer Jamal Khashoggi shredded the idea that the royalty of Saudi Arabia should be praised for reforming themselves. Princes who chop political opponents into little pieces are not nice people. That said, puh-leeze stop it with the adoration of a man who deserves none of it. Politico ran a headline gushing “Jamal Khashoggi: The Free Thinker Whose Murder…

December 13th, 2018 4:51 PM
MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews may have a show entitled Hardball and screech “let’s play hardball” at the top of each show, but it rarely squares with reality. Wednesday was no different as Hawaii Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard appeared for a friendly chat bashing the Saudis but was not pressed on her coziness with the murderous Assad regime in Syria.

Glib Joe: Illegitimate, ‘Stalinist’ Trump Is ‘Crashing and Burning’
November 21st, 2018 1:40 PM
Flying solo with fiancé Mika Brzezinski off ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, fellow co-host and faux Republican Joe Scarborough helmed the Morning Joe ship on Wednesday and opened with a seven-minute, uninterrupted rant against his former friend-turned-President Donald Trump, deeming him an illegitimate President who’s “Nixonian” and “Stalinist” in light of his Khashoggi statement and a report…
The Media’s Saudi Hypocrisy Problem
October 20th, 2018 4:00 PM
Uh-oh. So in all the justifiable uproar over the apparent murder — gruesome murder at that — of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi, over at Fox Howard Kurtz of Media Buzz has opened a window on an amazing liberal media/liberal Hollywood double-standard. Kurtz’s headline: “A Reckoning for Those Who Take Dirty Saudi Oil Money.”

Following what’s become a persistent narrative from the liberal media, Chuck Todd declared on Friday’s MTP Daily that the midterm message put forth by President Trump (and, by extension, the GOP) has been “a heavy dose of a bit of fear-mongering, conspiracy theories and even some mob-style antics.” Ah yes, so Todd is going to insinuate that Trump’s GOP are the real mob and not the left.

He didn't think he was going to be elected.”

October 19th, 2018 1:10 PM
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lit into ABC News on Friday for running a story with one anonymous"Turkish official" claiming Pompeo heard an audio recording of an attack on missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

October 18th, 2018 12:48 PM
Despite almost nine minutes of interview time, CBS This Morning co-host Norah O’Donnell on Thursday posed no tough questions to Joe Biden.
