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 […]

After nearly 25 years, an arrest in the Kristen Smart case

On May 25, 1996, at 2 a.m., 19-year-old Cal Poly freshman Kristen Smart was last seen at the intersection of Grand Avenue and Perimeter Road on the Cal Poly campus with fellow student Paul Flores. Just a month short of 25 years later, Flores, the last person to see Smart alive, was charged with her […]

Redefine Everything

I'm a big fan of words. I like putting them in order to convey meaning and describe concepts. I don't like the current attempts to redefine everything as part of a wider effort to delegitimize one side or change the terms of the political debate. The effort to change the meaning of words to benefit […]

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 […]

Jurists speak out against our left-wing media

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. Jurist #1: Laurence Silberman, D.C. Court of Appeals Last month, Judge Laurence […]

Newsweek needs to shut down its 'Fact-checking' Operation

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. Our last Newsweek fact-checking episode Earlier this year I pointed out the magazine's atrocious fact check regarding President Joe Biden's since-confirmed assistant secretary of […]

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 […]

Welcome to Hoystory's New Digs

This year will mark the 20th anniversary of this blog. It started out on Google's "Blogger" platform, and has moved to and fro over the years, with different hosting providers, different software backends, different themes, but the same me. Hoystory: where we were For several years, Hoystory was hosted by GoDaddy. The price was reasonable […]

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 […]

I'm not an IFCN verified fact checker but if you're going to say it's false that Biden wants to ban handguns, maybe don't...and stay with me here...include a quote of Biden saying he wants to ban handguns.

PolitiFact are partisan liars.

Biden explicitly said, about “9-mm PISTOLS” that can fire large-capacity magazines: "I’m continuing to push to ELIMINATE the sale of those things."

House GOP was RIGHT when it said Biden wants to ban handguns. PolitiFact dishonestly added “all.” https://twitter.com/politifact/status/1418309431029342208

PolitiFact@PolitiFact

[email protected] said @JoeBiden "wants to ban handguns."

He doesn't. He wants to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Neither would touch the most popular handguns.
