August 6, 2015 by


By Tim Graham ~ Washington Post reporter Jessica Contrera has only been out of college a year.

Lies The Media Told Me

February 12, 2015 by


By Edward Cline ~ Marshall McLuhan’s claim that ‘the medium is the message” is a rule of thumb adopted by today’s news media. Truth is optional, and the means by which it is delivered to the public has become a matter of “style” and bias. If truth does not comport with an established narrative, falsehood […]

Brian Williams ‘Flub’ Can Be Explained Away By ‘Science’?

February 8, 2015 by


By Tim Graham ~ Of all the things written about the Brian Williams affair, this trend is the most hilarious: The Washington Post opining about the validity of false memory.  If this kind of article isn’t seen as the most obvious example of journalists circling wagons around a lying colleague, what could be more obvious? […]

January 2, 2015 by


By Rich Noyes ~ In the 1980s and ’90s, journalists passed along expert predictions of the world as it would be in 2015. Now that the New Year has finally arrived, it might be fun to recall some of those forecasts. Keep these in mind as you hear sages confidently predict what we’ll find 20 […]

Cultural Winners and Losers Of 2014

December 28, 2014 by


By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Looking back at our popular culture in 2014, it appears that Hollywood’s power is on the wane.

August 29, 2014 by


By Lawrence Sellin Ph.D. ~ The United States has dire problems at home and perilous threats from abroad, all of which are solvable, but not with the politicians who are now wielding the power and the journalists who are controlling the national dialogue, few of whom serve the interests of the country or tell the […]

August 21, 2014 by


By Tim Graham ~ The Washington Post has been an eager booster of the crusade to strip the name “Redskins” from the NFL, with crusading sports columnist Mike Wise even making it into NBC’s crusading piece on Tuesday.

Overdoing The Death Of Robin Williams

August 17, 2014 by


By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ There was something thoroughly distasteful about that Robin Williams press conference the other day. It sounded wrong. It looked bad. It smelled. Was it newsworthy, so much so that news networks would break into their regular afternoon programming to broadcast live the first official law enforcement press conference […]

August 3, 2014 by


By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Back in the 1950s, C.S.

World War One – Not A War About Nothing

August 2, 2014 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Paul Kelly attacks the myth that World War I was just a colossal mistake by the leaders of every Great Power – a mere war of choice: Over time, as British historian Margaret MacMillan says, the idea arose that the Great War “was nobody’s fault or everybody’s (fault)”. From the 1960s, […]

But if the victims are white, we can’t say “racism”

November 25, 2013 by


 By Andrew Bolt  ~  Why are so many media outlets refusing to mention a racial angle they’d scream from the mountain-top if the violence went the other way? It’s an infuriating example of political correctness: Most of New York City’s media outlets have sanitized the nature of a spate of unprovoked attacks upon hapless pedestrians […]

Hollywood’s Favorite Sleazeball Shutterbug

November 17, 2013 by


By Michelle Malkin ~ The silence is deafening.

Fear And Loathing Are The New Freedoms

August 15, 2013 by


By Edward Cline ~ Imagine that Lionsgate Television serialized Jack Abbott’s In the Belly of the Beast, shot it as a “comedy-drama” in the spirit of Mork and Mindy, complete with humorous but serious lessons in life and prolonged observations on human behavior, sans laugh tracks and yuks. Then you’d have the overall flavor of […]

Schultz One-Ups Harris-Perry’s Detroit Delusion: Motor City’s Bankruptcy Is ‘Thanks To A Lot Of Republican Policies’

July 22, 2013 by


By Tom Blumer ~ Earlier today (at NewsBusters; at BizzyBlog), I noted that MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry blamed Detroit’s bankruptcy on “government (that) is small enough to drown in your bathtub,” and claimed that it reflects “exactly the kind of thing that many Republicans would impose on us.” Nothing can top that, right? Wrong. MSNBC’s Ed […]

Daily Kos Wants Us All To Fly The Friendly Skies For Free

April 1, 2013 by


By Tim Graham ~ The socialists at the Daily Kos are idealists, not pragmatists. For example, the blogger known as “Troubadour” thinks everything must be “public” and “enable and promote the rights and access of each individual citizen, since otherwise government merely functions as a monopolistic private entity rather than a representative of all.” In […]

Obama Protects Hollywood

January 20, 2013 by


By Brent Bozell ~ President Obama and Vice President Biden gathered their children for a photo-op as Obama showily signed executive orders to prevent future mass shootings.
