Clinton, Rubio and the media

Posted · Add Comment

For his first few years at The New York Times, columnist Paul Krugman was my punching bag. His dishonest, hack columns were perfect material for easy rabbit punches that had a devastating effect. My takedowns of his dishonest columns received widespread notice in a variety of national publications and in conservative Washington circles. Then the Times […]

Ignoring the news

Posted · Add Comment

I follow National Journal columnist and former AP White House correspondent Ron Fournier on Twitter. Mainly for the entertainment value of a mainstream journalist attempting to keep up the façade that he’s an unbiased purveyor of truth holding all sides accountable. This morning, Tom Anderson responded to one of Fournier’s tweets noting the political sideshow that […]

Soft targets

CNN national security analyst Juliette Kayyem thinks that those of us calling for arming military recruiters are foolish. Stop w/ the “we need to harden soft targets by arming folks.” It’s dangerous talk. There will always be soft targets. We need to rethink 1/2 — Juliette Kayyem (@juliettekayyem) July 17, 2015 Force protection since military […]

Terrorism in Chattanooga

Posted · 1 Comment

Earlier today a scum-sucking bottom dweller assassinated four Marines in Chattanooga, Tenn. Make no mistake, this was terrorism. In the rush to fill airtime, CNN invited national security analyst Juliette Kayyem to offer words of wisdom complete and total idiocy. Ms. Kayyem has two points. #1: The Marines who were shot and killed aren’t allowed to carry […]

Major Garrett’s last question of the Obama presidency

Posted · Add Comment

CBS News’ Major Garrett had a question for President Obama at this morning’s news conference. It’s his last question of the Obama pressidency. For one brief moment, President Obama knew what it was like to be treated like a Republican politician…and he didn’t like it. *Update* And the palace guard strikes back! Science-denier Bill Maher […]

Obama’s bad deal

Posted · Add Comment

President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and just about every other administration official repeatedly said over the course of the P5+1 negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program that “no deal is better than a bad deal.” That was a lie. Today, President Obama proudly announced that he’d made a deal with Iran that […]

On Same-Sex Marriage

It’s a week late, but I figured that I’d weigh in on same-sex marriage and ensure that I never get a job in journalism or other media again. As BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith reminds us all, on the gay marriage issue, there aren’t two sides. Christian response First, from the standpoint of a Christ-follower, this article […]

Politifraud is Mostly Useless

Posted · Add Comment

The fact-check itself is interesting only in that it is an example of a Politifraud admission against interest. What I want to draw attention to is the Editor’s note as evidence that Politifraud is Mostly Useless. Really? I’m trying to understand exactly how ignorant of the world you have to be not to know that […]

The Pope is senile

“But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.” Luke 22:36 There’s only one explanation if comments reportedly made by Pope Francis over the weekend are accurate—the Pope is senile. Francis issued his toughest condemnation to date of […]

Media bias illustrated

Posted · Add Comment

Over the weekend, the Associated Press once again demonstrated that 99 percent of journalists (visual and otherwise) give the other 1 percent a bad name. Photographer Charlie Neibergall and, one would presume a photo editor, sent a series of photos like this one over the AP wire. This from the same AP that regularly transmitted […]
