No Centrists In The Democratic Primaries

February 13, 2020 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ On Sunday, The Washington Post editorial page led with a dramatic and rarely uttered fact check. The headline was “There are no ‘centrists’ – the Democratic primary race is not a choice between change and the status quo.” The unsigned editorial began by taking on an “unchecked assumption,” […]

Impeachment Dies In Desperation

February 6, 2020 by

2

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ As the Trump impeachment effort inevitably burns out on the ash heap of history, Democrats are left to argue that if this president is left unchecked, if he’s not removed from office, he’ll “do it again.” He’ll pressure foreign governments to investigate the business dealings of the Bidens, […]

Adam Schiff’s Avalanche Of Accolades

January 25, 2020 by

0

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Our media elites arrogantly lecture about our democracy being undermined by robotic propaganda, but do they ever listen to themselves talk about the Democrats? Somehow, they think their robotic propaganda is just telling the “truth.” The press came to witness the Senate impeachment trial, and Adam Schiff had […]

Pretending Hunter Biden Is Irrelevant

January 23, 2020 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ The impeachment trial of Donald Trump should begin with an indictment of the media. The alleged crime committed by President Trump revolves around his request that the president of Ukraine investigate the shady business dealings of Hunter Biden with a corrupt Ukrainian oil and gas company. That investigation […]

Stop The Silly ‘Centrist’ Labels For Democrats

January 16, 2020 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ The most abused adjective in political reporting is the label “centrist.” It should tell you everything about the politician. Unfortunately it tells us far more about those applying the label. The American Conservative Union ratings system has been widely accepted as the voting compass from the perspective of […]

Hollywood Gets An Education

January 12, 2020 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Ricky Gervais, the perpetually snarky British comedian, set social media on fire after he mocked arrogant Hollywood in his opening monologue as host of the Golden Globe Awards. “So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech,” he […]

Never Trust Hollywood With History

January 5, 2020 by

2

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Hollywood loves taking apart conservatives. So when presented with the idea of men in the highest reaches of the conservative media sexually harassing women at the office, it was manna from heaven. You’ll not find a ripped-from-the-headlines TV dramatization of Harvey Weinstein’s predations. There’s no hellish-office movie on […]

Media Yawn At The War On Christians

January 2, 2020 by

3

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ The secular media greet Christmas as a shopping season, and not as a special time for Christianity. They can devote hours of December “news” on which hot toys or gadgets would make great gifts, but not to segments on Christ and his birth. The same applies to the […]

The Media Help Erode Our Norms

December 22, 2019 by

2

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ When the Washington Post infamously posted the motto “Democracy Dies in Darkness” on its masthead after Donald Trump was elected, it was implicit — oh, sure, they’ll deny it — that Trump was the enemy of democracy, and of “light,” or transparency. So it was sadly poetic that […]

A Harsh Critique Of Media Ethics

December 19, 2019 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ The Pew Research Center, firmly ensconced inside the liberal establishment, has a new poll that worries them sick. (Perhaps not as much as the new USA Today survey that shows Trump now defeating every single Democrat opponent.) They’re concerned and confused about a dramatic difference in skepticism about […]

Feminists Exalt The Wonder Of Abortion

December 8, 2019 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Abortion is the highest expression of feminism. It’s the only concern of feminists. Just ask the First Lady how many feminists came to her defense after her son’s name was dragged through the mud on Capitol Hill. Ask Kellyanne Conway how many stood behind her when she was […]

ABC Broadcasts Pop Music From Hell

December 1, 2019 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ ABC aired the American Music Awards on Sunday, November 24, and the big surprise was that none of the featured pop stars launched into a political diatribe about the horrors of the Trump era. The shock factor was reserved for one of the most vicious assaults on God […]

Bloomberg Destroys Journalism Norms

November 28, 2019 by

2

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Billionaire “news” media mogul Michael Bloomberg is running for president. How will his Bloomberg News empire cover this? Bloomberg News just posted an article touting how much trouble President Trump is in. It lustily listed all his scandals: “Lawmakers and prosecutors are looking at whether he abused the […]

When Actors Play Scientist On Capitol Hill

November 24, 2019 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Celebrity testimony is an age-old political stunt on Capitol Hill. If you want the press at your hearing, you’d lunge at the chance to have a star athlete or a famous singer or actor to bring some zing to your issue. Democrats do this better because they have […]

The Impeachment-Promoting Press Bores The Public

November 21, 2019 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Adam Schiff’s Democrat impeachment hearings are under way – airing live all over the dial – and the liberals are quite upset that America couldn’t care less. NBC News spurred rage on Twitter for daring to admit (online) that the first two witnesses “lacked the pizzazz necessary to […]

Katie Hill Finds Her Shills

November 10, 2019 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ California congresswoman Katie Hill resigned her office after only ten months on the job…and it didn’t sound like she did it willingly. Hill admitted to an affair with a female staffer on her campaign, and denied an affair with her male Legislative Director in her congressional office – […]

Jane Fonda’s New Socialist Stunts

November 3, 2019 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ One of the strangest things about liberals is how they think getting arrested is some kind of achievement. Take Jane Fonda, who at the tender age of 81 is still ranting against capitalist America ruining the world. Only this time, the issue is “climate change” instead of the […]

Speech Police And Safe Spaces

October 27, 2019 by

2

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Freedom of speech is in the First Amendment for a reason. Freedom begins with the ability to speak your opinion without fear of censorship or violent reprisal or imprisonment. This is a precious human right, not something that most countries in the world revere like we have. But […]

The Incredible, Vanishing ‘Whistleblower’

October 17, 2019 by

0

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ The partisans at The Washington Post pretended in a front-page “news” article on Sunday that somehow President Trump was losing his marbles in “rage,” going “beyond his often-untethered bounds.” Post readers were supposed to be highly disturbed about his mental state when he held a raucous rally in […]

The Self-Congratulation In Banned Books Week

October 6, 2019 by

3

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Washington Post book critic Ron Charles made a confession the other day. “I banned a book,” he wrote. “Or at least I helped get it banned, which makes Banned Books Week a little awkward for me this year. Like celebrating Arbor Day by cutting down a tree.” The […]

Beware The Right-Wing Media Machine?

October 3, 2019 by

2

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ In the fall of 1998, the House Republicans took Kenneth Starr’s report on Bill Clinton’s impeachable conduct and launched an impeachment inquiry. The media elites roared in disgust. NBC’s Gwen Ifill quoted an unnamed (naturally) House Judiciary Committee member who compared the Starr Report to a terrorist’s truck […]

Pelosi Bows To Hollywood Extremists

September 29, 2019 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally announced she would support an impeachment process, she was bowing to left-wing extremists who have never accepted the 2016 election results. And Tinseltown is positively giddy. After the election, celebrity leftists made a video urging the Electoral College to reject the actual […]

Earth Worship And Climate Confessions

September 23, 2019 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Gaiaism is alive and well in what we call Western civilization. In advance of the United Nations “Climate Action Summit” on September 23, leftists are actively practicing their faith. Man has despoiled the Earth, and now must…confess to the Earth? Think we’re exaggerating? On September 18, New York’s Union […]

God Takes A Beating On Television

September 15, 2019 by

0

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ It’s a fallacy to suggest that in the news media, business trumps politics. CNN and MSNBC’s dismal ratings are in direct proportion to their deliberate decision to embrace far-left anti-Trumpism. The same holds true for commercialized Hollywood, except in their case it’s not just anti-Trumpism that excites. The […]
