NYT: Virus Crisis 'Outgrowth of Exploitative' Capitalism, Reaganism
In “Reconciling the Pandemic With the Nation’s Self-Image,” her left-wing essay disguised as news in Wednesday’s New York Times, culture reporter Jennifer Schuessler used an ill-concealed gloating tone, as if the pandemic, which caught the whole world (except China) off guard, is the final blow to naive Reaganesque pride in American uniqueness: ....others see the crisis as…
'Mixed-ish' Misinformation: 'Reagan Planted Crack in Black Community'
Mixed-ish, ABC's prequel to Black-ish, is well known for being a politically charged, anti-conservative show based in the 1980s. On Tuesday's episode, "Every Little Step," they continued this trend when Paul (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) accused Reagan of planting crack in the black community.

Gross Michelle Wolf: Trump Gets ‘Sweet Oral Satisfaction’ From Media
Profane comedienne and failed Netflix talk show host Michelle Wolf has been out of the spotlight recently, but it’s obvious she is still REALLY angry at Donald Trump for remaining in the White House. In case anyone doubted her hostility toward the President, she wrote an article for the liberal Daily Beast website, where she bizarrely accused the “mainstream media” of giving him…
NPR Host Dwells on Race as the 'Original Sin' of the Modern GOP
On Tuesday's Amanpour & Co. on PBS, NPR hoste Michel Martin did an interview with Stuart Stevens, one of those GOP strategists who became red-hot Never Trumpers. Stevens insisted "the original sin of the modern Republican party is race," and Martin used that to rip into Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush....inaccurately.
MSNBC Uses Pandemic to Trash Reagan: 'Demonized' the Poor
On Saturday's Velshi show, as MSNBC host Ali Velshi again used the coronavirus pandemic to promote an increase in welfare and socialism in the U.S., MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude made time to go all the way back to the Ronald Reagan administration as he complained about an "ideology" "that has demonized poor people" for decades.
Colbert’s Cartoon Show Blasts Reagan as 'Dementia-Ridden President'
President Ronald Reagan left office in January 1989 yet liberals in Hollywood still love nothing better than to randomly insert crude caricatures of him into television storylines.

NY Times Gloats: ‘Bring Back Big Government’ Over Coronavirus
Farhad Manjoo, New York Times tech columnist turned proudly left-wing opinion columnist, positively gloated over the private sector and President Trump’s failure to bring the coronavirus to heel in “Bring Back Big Government -- America’s failed response to the coronavirus is a direct result of decades of starving federal agencies of expertise.” Of course, it turned out to…
Preposterous: WashPost Promotes Idea of Sanders, 'Reagan of the Left'
Sunday's Washington Post Outlook section carried a preposterous article by Sam Tanenhaus, the former editor of The New York Times Book Review. It tried to suggest Bernie Sanders was a lot like Ronald Reagan, a "Reagan of the left." Why pick this man to try this lame thesis? This is the same Tanenhaus who wrote a book predicting The Death of Conservatism in 2009.

It’s another presidential election and CNN is releasing more episodes of its documentary series Race for the White House.

Thatcher and Reagan: Why Do They Hate Them So?
WASHINGTON — I am rounding the last turn of Charles Moore's magisterial biography of Margaret Thatcher. It is no sprint. It is not even a long-distance race. It is a marathon of a literary work, three volumes. Three thick volumes. Yet, as I have said, it is a masterpiece. Charles loves Ms. Thatcher. That is not to say he lets her off easy. Charles is too fine a biographer for that, and…
Ex-CNBC Star, Harsh Critic of Socialism, to Challenge AOC in Primary
Many Republicans -- and some Democrats as well -- have been unhappy ever since wildly liberal Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won New York’s 14th congressional district in November of 2018, after she upset 10-term Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley. While several people have expressed an interest in running against her in this year’s primary and general election, the most recent person to…

Tom Brokaw Slams (Social) Media as Enabling a No-Context '24/7 Rage'
Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner reported former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw gave an interview to NBC's NFL sideline reporter Michele Tafoya for the magazine Artful Living and complained "I think the most extraordinarily powerful tool and the most destructive development in modern life is the current media."
