Journalists Behaving Badly

Tuesday Palm Beach Post columnist Frank Cerabino published a column that made an interesting claim. According to Cerabino, an effort to determine how much illegal immigration was costing Florida taxpayers in uncompensated care at hospitals in the state cost more to collect than it did to provide the care itself! “Governor DeSantis continues to put Floridians first […]

Games PolitiFact Plays

I could put up a post a day on fact-checker PolitiFact fact-checking poorly. Bryan White over at Politifactbias.com put up a post on their failure to properly fact-check an analogy just last week, and then compounded it by surprise consulting a bunch of partisan experts to validate their predictably lame ruling. But it's this fact-check last […]

October 7 and the Evil Here and Abroad

It's taken me a while to digest what happened in southern Israel on October 7. I realize it's not really informative or productive to publish a blog post that consists of little more than outrage and expletives over what was the largest single-day loss of Jewish life since the Holocaust. In the days and weeks […]

Journalism's Descent into Fluff and Folly

One of the news media types I follow on Twitter/X published a link to a Gannett job posting for a job posting for a "Beyoncé Knowles-Carter Reporter." Talk about a headfirst dive into fluff and folly. I understand entertainment news and reporting is a thing, even if it isn't my thing, but a having a […]

David French is lost

About a decade ago, lawyer and National Review writer David French was someone I generally agreed with. He worked as a lawyer for the Alliance Defending Freedom and before that, the Jay Sekulow's ACLJ. But, like a lot of people on both the right and the left, it appears that he was broken by Donald Trump. […]

How the news media lies to you

Earlier today, Reveal News' Andy Donahue tweeted out some screenshots promoting his organization's "The Weekly" newsletter. The case being argued at SCOTUS tomorrow is just as big a threat to our democracy — if not bigger — than election-denying candidates. Here’s the rundown from The Weekly @reveal newsletter: pic.twitter.com/yj3KUr2Kfc — Andy Donohue (@add) December 6, […]

The Red Wave That Wasn't

In a midterm election where inflation over the past year has topped 8 percent, gasoline prices top $5/gallon in California and are nearly $4/gallon in most other states, well over half of those polled say the country is on the wrong track, and Joe Biden's job approval at just 42 percent, the Republican Party fell […]

News media predictably soft-peddles California's Abortion Proposition 1

There are two major subjects of political contention in America that the news media continuously gets wrong because of its ideological bubble: guns and abortion. In response to the Dobbs decision, California liberals have proposed an amendment to the state constitution that proponents argue is simultaneously necessary to preserve the "right" to an abortion and really […]

There is no such thing as critical race theory…

…and if there is, it's a good thing. The Fresno Bee this weekend published a "Valley Voices" op-ed from college administrator Noha Elbaz who attempts to make the case that Critical Race Theory (CRT) is nothing more than a boogeyman designed to gin up fear, distrust and anger. What is [CRT]? Not many can really tell […]

Staying inside your political bubble

The rise of social media, partisan cable news stations, and, yes, political blogs and websites have had an unfortunate effect of making it easier to insulate oneself from views with which you disagree. Today, you can create a nearly impenetrable political bubble that reflects back approval and assurance that you're on the right side of […]
