Reality is inconvenient

It was predictable, really. It didn't take but a few moments after I published the rest of my weekend column that the SLO Tribune wouldn't publish for a feminist to decide that reality is inconvenient. Seeing my warning for young women to refrain from getting inebriated, and if they do, stay close to female friends, a […]

What the Tribune won't publish

For those of you reading my column in this morning's paper, it might seem oddly short. I didn't get lazy and simply choose to not use my allotted number of words; the Tribune editors refused to publish the majority of my column. While my liberal counterpart Tom Fulks can, with almost disturbing regularity, lash out at […]

Shooting in San Bernardino

There's a suspected mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif. We don't know squat about what's happened. That hasn't stopped the usual suspects from jumping to their preferred narrative and lying. Case in point, radio talk show hack Alan Colmes. Planned Parenthood Clinic Across Street From San Bernardino Shooting https://t.co/riaxpbjE3j #p2 — Alan Colmes (@AlanColmes) December […]

The University of Virginia rape story

If you're not familiar with the story, I commend to you this article by National Review's Charles C. W. Cooke. If I were teaching a journalism class today (as if any j-school faculty would have someone with my views), we'd spend a week on this story. What you would do as an editor when presented with […]

A few thoughts on Newtown

It takes a severe mental defect to contemplate the murder of 20 young children. Adam Lanza was a very sick man. The focus in the coming days, weeks and months […]

Voter fraud is easy

Wow. I can’t believe this actually worked. James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas does it again That’s right. A poll worker was prepared to hand the ballot of the Attorney General of the United States to someone else. The guy didn’t even look like Eric Holder. If it’s that easy to get Holder’s ballot, it probably isn’t […]

Chemical crime

No one ever tried to rob a gas station using incandescent bulbs. He took out the fluorescent bulb, smashed it on the desk and demanded cash, police said. The clerk refused to hand over any money and the would-be robber walked away. No word on whether OSHA was called or how the mercury contamination was […]

Force of habit

She apparently just got used to stealing from the taxpayers, she didn't realize it's only legal if you use the state's taxing power. Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi has been charged with felony grand theft after allegedly being caught by security officers stealing nearly $2,500 in clothing from a San Francisco Neiman Marcus store.

Keys to victory

I mentioned the "keys to victory" for Obama in 2012 a couple weeks ago. The key we're watching this week is: Social unrest: There is no sustained social unrest during the term. I present you with Occupy Oakland.

🧵Please indulge me more on this topic: Yesterday's Bloomberg article misrepresenting Thune's comments on entitlement reform is part of a broader issue:
Most media coverage of Social Security, Medicare & unsustainable debt has long been narrative-driven and, yes, dishonest. (1/)

More broken accountability at the International Fact-Checking Network (@factchecknet) and the @Poynter Institute.

The IFCN allows people to register complaints about the its stable of "verified" signatories to its code of principles. @Google and @YouTube $hould pay attention.
