Media Bias, Part Eleventy-Billion

On Twitter yesterday, Sarah Quinlan posted a couple of pictures to some tweets from the supposedly non-partisan Associated Press. Instead we are provided with yet another example of subtle media bias. Unfortunately, like just about every other mainstream media publication, the Associated Press is staffed by journalists who are overwhelmingly liberal, hence this tweet: BREAKING: […]

Media Bias, Illustrated

I've been less interested in media bias this election cycle mostly because #NeverTrump. I don't want readers to be mistaken that my criticism as to how his orangeness is treated by the media is a defense of the cheeto jesus. But this is getting ridiculous. The most interesting, and substantive, bit of news out of the […]

Abetting Gavin Newsom's Big Lie

Last week, Politifact's California arm issued a rating for Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom's "Safety for All" group. Politifact runs the numbers and it turns out that by cobbling together a bunch of Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) categories you can get a number that is more than 2x the number of McDonalds franchisees in the state. […]

The War on Cops

Two years ago, two NYPD officers were killed as they sat in their marked car by a black man angry about the death of Eric Garner and strong-arm robber Michael Brown. Ten days ago, a madman opened fire on cops at a Black Lives Matter protest in downtown Dallas. Five officers were killed and nine […]

VA Hospitals aren't Disneyland

Today, Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald uttered what may be the dumbest words said by someone in the federal government until the next time Vice President Joe Biden steps in front of a camera. At a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, McDonald said: "When you got to Disney, do they measure the number […]

War on the 2nd Amendment

While guns sales have soared over the past two decades, violent crime has gone down. Not that most Americans know that, or are being told that by Democrats who reflexively talk about a "gun violence epidemic" that isn't actually happening. This is their War on the 2nd Amendment. While much of the country has come […]

Political virtue-signaling

On Sunday, the San Luis Obispo Tribune published my latest column on the Democrats vying to replace retiring Rep. Lois Capps (D-Santa Barbara) this fall. In the proposed headline and text of the originally submitted column, I used the phrase "political virtue-signaling." My use doesn't quite match the urban dictionary definition, instead I would define it […]

Sacramento goes on an anti-gun crusade

In case you missed it, my weekend column in the San Luis Obispo Tribune is available here. The column focuses on many of the new anti-gun laws currently making their way through the California legislature and notes one thing they have in common: none of them would've stopped last year's terrorist attack in San Bernardino. I […]

The Gun Laws We Have

Yesterday, former Democratic state Sen. Leland Yee was sentenced to five years in prison on public corruption charges. (Media bias note: The Associated Press story does not identify Yee as a Democrat.) Yee made a name for himself as a legislator in a couple of ways. Video gaming sites noted that the legislator gained some notoriety […]

I had a ruptured ectopic pregnancy in the state of Tennessee one month ago. At no time was I refused care and at no time was anyone restricted from saving my life, even though my baby did die. This is misinformation that could prevent women from seeking help. https://twitter.com/whitehouse/status/1617254668488278017

The White House @WhiteHouse

In states where abortion is restricted, doctors live in fear of being thrown in jail for simply doing their job.
