Our Horrible Media: (News)papering over the controversy

On Tuesday, James O'Keefe's Project Veritas unveiled a 12-minute long video featuring Inderkum High School AP Government Teacher Gabriel Gipe talking about how he runs his public school classroom. Highlights from the Project Veritas site include: Gipe: “I have 180 days to turn them [students] into revolutionaries…Scare the f*ck out of them.” Gipe: “I’m probably […]

Our Horrible Media: Corrections and Celebrity Outrage Clickbait

Corrections policies, especially at newspapers, used to be pretty straightforward. In most cases, they'd run in the same, dedicated spot in the section of the newspaper in which the story they were correcting first appeared. So, corrections on AP wire stories often ran on A2. If it was a correction to a feature piece in […]

Our Horrible Media: Lab Leak Edition

For more than a year, suggesting that the COVID-19 virus, which originated in Wuhan, China, might have escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology was a crazy, right-wing conspiracy theory that was the equivalent of believing the moon landings were faked. Let's start with this: You shouldn't trust anything the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) says. […]

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 but […]

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. Shortly after arriving on the scene, the officer shot and killed 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant. As has become the norm, social media accounts spurred a narrative that […]

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 […]

A couple of jurists, one from the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, the other on the Supreme Court, have made some interesting comments in legal opinions that highlight an important issue in the media today: The nearly complete consolidation by the political left.
