June 25th, 2019 6:26 PM
Journalist E. Jean Carroll is making sexual assault allegations against President Donald Trump, dating from the mid-1990s.

Michelle Cottle, the lead New York Times editorial writer for national politics, issued a surprising signed lead editorial in Thursday’s edition, “Hillary Clinton’s Master Class in Distraction” (perhaps a quasi-lead editorial, as it carries the paper’s “Editorial Observer” tag, but it is in the regular editorial slot).

September 19th, 2018 12:59 PM
Hillary Clinton, on last night’s Rachel Maddow show, insisted that the FBI investigate Christine Blasey Ford’s rape accusation against Judge Brett Kavanaugh – which is pretty audacious considering that’s something Juanita Broaddrick never got.

Bozell & Graham Column: The Media and Kavanaugh's Kangaroo Court
September 18th, 2018 9:51 PM
The erupting charges of “attempted rape” against Brett Kavanaugh when he was 17 show just how shameless the Democrats and the “Facts First” media have become. They are promoting charges where the accuser can’t remember when or where it happened. That is enough to stop a Supreme Court nomination?

March 23rd, 2018 11:47 AM
On his Fox News show on Thursday night, Sean Hannity underlined an obvious point about the current push to publicize "adult entertainment" providers like Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal and their allegations of (consensual) adultery with Donald Trump before he was president.
