Walter E. Williams Column: Left-wing Professors Love to Hate Our Count

As I've documented in the past, many leftist teachers teach our youngsters to hate our country. For example, University of Hawaii Professor Haunani-Kay Trask counseled her students, "We need to think very, very clearly about who the enemy is. The enemy is the United States of America and everyone who supports it." Some universities hire former terrorists to teach and indoctrinate…

Wikipedia Scrubs Ayers and Wright From Obama Biography

Wikipedia users have scrubbed all references to homegrown terrorist William Ayers and the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright from Barack Obama's entry at the online encyclopedia.Apparently, any information posted about Ayers or Wright in the text of the Obama biography is not only immediately taken down, but the offending user is banned for three days. Such was revealed by WorldNetDaily moments…

My Beef With Politico's Top Ten Media Blunders List

All in all, I like Politico's list of the Top Ten Media Blunders of 2008, by staff writer Michael Calderone, appearing on the website this evening. How can you be too tough on a list that includes, among other faux pas:MSNBC's use of Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews as election night and convention co-anchors; The New York Times's suggestive but unsubstantiated story about John McCain and…

Matthews to Ayers: 'I Agitate My Way, You Agitate Your Way

Chris Matthews invited Bill Ayers on Wednesday night's "Hardball," and actually confronted him about his bombing of Capitol Hill during his days as a member of the '60s terrorist group Weather Underground, as the former Capitol Hill police officer emotionally observed: "I was a Capitol policeman at the time, so I was one of the guys that could have been killed obviously at the time…

Ayers Likens His Treatment by Fox News to Scene From Orwell's

Now that the election is over and President-elect Barack Obama successfully defeated Sen. John McCain, unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers has decided to break his silence and cash-in by promoting his books.Although he described himself as "an unwitting and unwilling participant thrust up on stage" for the 2008 presidential election, he demonstrated his opportunistic traits by…

ABC's Chris Cuomo Hits Ayers on Bombings; Skips Specific Victims

In part two of "Good Morning America's" Friday interview with former bomber William Ayers, news anchor Chris Cuomo did challenge the ex-'60s radical on whether or not he was a terrorist. But after Ayers contended, "It's not terrorism because it doesn't target people. It doesn't target people to either kill or injure," the journalist failed to offer specifics that would refute…

ABC's Chris Cuomo Has Few Follow-ups for 'Campaign Boogeyman' Ayers

"Good Morning America" news anchor Chris Cuomo on Friday conducted an interview with former bomber William Ayers that qualified as neither a softball or a grilling of the ex-domestic terrorist. Although he did challenge Ayers, he didn't interrupt when the Chicago professor insisted that America fought a "violent terrorist war" or when the '60s radical characterized the U.S.…

After Obama Win, GMA's Cuomo Decides to Grill Bill Ayers

Chicago Trib: Ayers 'Seems to Contradict' Obama by Calling Him 'a Fami

Yeah, and the Chicago Cubs "seem" not to have won a World Series for 100 years. A Thursday afternoon Chicago Tribune story (HTs to Ace and Say Anything) by Rex W. Huppke covers the appearance of a new afterword in a book by former Weather Underground leader William Ayers. Let's just roll the excerpt: In a new afterword to his memoir, 1960s radical William Ayers describes himself as a…

Suddenly Media Interested in Bill Ayers

Perhaps the unrepentant domestic terrorist friend of Barack Obama did his part avoiding the media, but most of the media certainly lacked in pursuing him.

Will ABC Grill or Toss Softballs to Terrorist Bomber William Ayers

On Thursday's "Good Morning America," ABC hosts touted the show's exclusive interview on Friday with bomber William Ayers. During the presidential campaign, the program (and network) largely downplayed or sympathetically reported on the connection between the domestic terrorist and (then) Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. So, it will be interesting to see if GMA co-host…

CNN Implies Conservatives are Partially to Blame For Murders of Illega

On Wednesday’s Newsroom program, a report by CNN correspondent Joe Johns, along with a subsequent interview by anchor Rick Sanchez, raised the implication that anti-illegal immigration rhetoric, particularly from conservatives, might be partially to blame for a spike in so-called hate crimes against Latinos. During a clip in Johns’ report, which was about the recent murder of an immigrant from…

Camille Paglia Attacks Media's 'Sadomasochistic, Anti-Palin Orgy

As press members on both sides of the aisle continue their feeding frenzy on Sarah Palin, it seems almost poetic that a liberal, lesbian feminist would be staunchly coming to her defense while aggressively criticizing the media's treatment of her as well as their absurd disinterest in some of the scandals surrounding Barack Obama.Yet, once again, Camille Paglia is doing exactly that with a Salon…

Washington Post Does a Fluff Piece on Ayers

Ah, the land of lollipops and unicorns has descended upon us now that the savior has won the election.Perhaps with the safety of the completed election securely behind, Peter Slevin of the Washington Post did a very cutesy article covering the not-so-cutesy terrorist, Bill Ayers.Ayers was gracious enough to come out of the woodwork to offer his viewpoints on the Republicans demonizing him during…
