Conservative media has issues too

There were a couple of items that came across the transom yesterday while I was locked out from my main computer (my wife was doing grades for the final progress report of the year) and so I responded on Twitter, rather than here. The first example, an article by Ian Miles Cheong at The Post-Millennial, is […]

Our Horrible Media: Thursday follow-up

It's not getting any better. Our horrible media continues to lie, obfuscate and betray the public. Our Horrible Media: Ma'Khia Bryant Follow-up It's now been nearly 48 hours since 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant attacked two other girls with a knife and was shot mere moments before plunging a knife into another girl. Yesterday's post is a […]

Our Horrible Media: Ma'Khia Bryant Edition

Yesterday, right around the time the verdict came in the Minneapolis murder trial of former police officer Derrick Chauvin a police were called to an altercation in Columbus, Ohio.

Our Horrible Media: Hacked Materials Edition

I'm strongly considering changing the name of this website, and its focus, to the things our horrible media does. It's not like there's a dearth of material—and you'd see more of it if I had more time and I could get people to pay me for it. (Substack?) Late last week an organization called Distributed […]

Our Horrible Media: Georgia edition

It's been a horrible few months for the American media, and there's no sign of it improving. I reviewed Tim Groseclose's essential tome, "Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind," shortly after it was released nearly 10 years ago, and the media's slanting of stories has only gotten worse. A quick scroll […]

Newsweek magazine, which just over a decade ago sold for $1 and the assumption of tens of millions of dollars in liabilities, has a fact-checking operation. They should shut it down.

My First Twitter Ban (or: Why Context Matters)

Twitter, by its very nature, is not conducive to rational discussion of nuanced viewpoints, which is probably why I'll lose my appeal of my Twitter ban and be forced to delete my Tweet. (Which I might've done anyway since there's a misspelling and no edit button.) For the record, all tweets in this post will […]

President Biden, press conferences, and the media

We've passed the 50 day mark of the Biden presidency ("America Held Hostage") and the new president has yet to hold a press conference. His past 15 predecessors all held at least one in their first 33 days in office. There's a lot of speculation on the political right about why Biden is sticking to […]
