Big Media vs. Big Tech

Late last week Facebook fired the first shot in the coming war between Big Media and Big Tech. In response to legislation that passed Australia's House of Representatives, but had not yet become law, that would require Facebook to pay Australian media companies anytime anyone linked to, or shared, an article from a news organization […]

Rush Limbaugh, RIP

Rush Limbaugh died yesterday at the age of 70 from lung cancer. As should be no surprise, thoughtful, kind-hearted liberals reacted on social media with a level of hatred and vitriol not seen since…well, the last prominent conservative died. I first started listening to Rush pretty frequently my junior year of college. I thought I'd […]

Public Education in the Time of COVID

We're approaching the end of our first year living with the COVID-19 virus here in the United States. The report card for most of our elected officials and institutions is dismal—public education is among the worst. I see a lot of this close-up. My wife is a high school English teacher; my sister, a high […]

Former New York Times Editor Jill Abramson Weighs In

In an op-ed posted over the weekend at the New York Post, Jill Abramson, the former top editor at The New York Times, weighed in at the woke mess her former place of employ has become. After recounting some of her history at the storied newspaper, Abramson addresses Donald McNeil Jr.'s recent firing, and last year's […]

Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and society

Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day was celebrated last month and I'm reliably informed that he was some sort of racially insensitive bigot who just wanted black Americans to act more white. I get into these "discussions" on Facebook and I should know better. I've had people I know touting "social justice" and I'll point […]

Cancel Culture and the Teaching Profession

Unlike some on the right, I'm not a big fan of cancel culture regardless of its origin. There's this story out of Arkansas about a high school history teacher who got fired over an email he sent to state lawmakers over a bill they were considering prohibiting use of the fraudulent 1619 Project curriculum and […]

Madness at The New York Times Part 2

Another day, some more madness regarding The New York Times' recent firing of their star COVID-19 reporter Donald McNeil Jr. If you haven't read the previous post regarding this issue, then please do so now before continuing. Today's Washington Post has an article on the controversy by media critic Eric Wemple. The article helpfully contains some […]

Madness at the New York Times

If you've heard nothing of the latest madness at what has long been the gold standard of journalism in this country, The New York Times, then I apologize for what follows. In a sane world, this wouldn't have happened in the first place. This is not that sane world. Donald McNeil Jr.'s poor judgment call On […]

Media outlets conspire to slime Sen. Tom Cotton

Last weekend, Salon, an online magazine whose best days were probably 15-plus years ago and now appears to be little more than a low-rent, clickbait version of Mother Jones, published a hit piece on Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) accusing the man who served one tour in Iraq and another in Afghanistan—and was awarded a Bronze Star—of stolen valor. […]

The media landscape during the Biden administration

I'm scheduled to go on the Dave Congalton Hometown Radio show on 920 KVEC shortly to talk about the media in a Biden administration (some of which I discussed in the post below) and what conservative news sources I reference. First, the conservative news sources I reference on a regular basis. The Wall Street Journal editorial […]

@GlennKesslerWP Reading your whole thing, it so often feels if you're obfuscating rather than making things clear.

1) Obamacare mandated that LSOTP do something
2) LSOTP say "no", sue on religious grounds
3) Trump admin grants them waiver
4) CA AG says "no waivers!"

@GlennKesslerWP I feel like you're trying to thread a needle here, but even if we accept this distinction, wouldn't that mean that the Obama administration *specifically* opposed the Little Sisters of the Poor by denying them the waiver that the Trump admin granted them?
