Media Mock Perry’s Linkage of Fossil Fuels to Reducing Sexual Assault
November 3rd, 2017 10:08 AM
The ever-opportunistic leftist media has decided that a statement by Trump administration Energy Secretary Rick Perry early Thursday asserting that the use of "fossil fuels to push power ... into ... villages in Africa" which currently have no access to the power grid would save lives and reduce "sexual assault" is controversial.

ABC Eagerly Touts Chuck Schumer’s Lefty Economic Plans
July 24th, 2017 10:45 AM
In an appearance Sunday morning on ABC's This Week, New York Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer teased his party's economic plan which will be unveiled Monday.

Schumer betrayed the fact that he has little to no such understanding when he declared that "gas prices are sticky," and that when the "price for oil goes…

After news broke on Tuesday that former Texas Governor Rick Perry would be President-elect Donald Trump's choice to head the Energy Department, CNN anchors made sure to have fun reminding viewers of the infamous "oops moment" from October 2011 when Perry was unable to name during a debate the third department that he wished to eliminate if he were elected President -- which coincidentally was…

Networks Hyped Perry Indictment in 2014; Silent on Dismissal
February 25th, 2016 10:21 AM
Political scandals make for juicy journalism, but apparently a politician being cleared of wrong doing isn’t even worth a mention. When the initial story of Rick Perry’s indictment broke in August 2014, ABC, CBS and NBC devoted 25 minutes in just two days to topic, speculating that the controversy could “end any chance” for Perry in 2016. But when Perry was cleared of any wrongdoing, all three…
