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 […]

The Media and Joe Biden

President Joe Biden has held the office for less than a week, and it's becoming quickly apparent that we may be seeing a return to the fawning media coverage of the Obama administration, when both print and digital media saw their jobs to help the nation's first black president succeed. Now it is a duty […]

The Reporting Divide

The past few days have been very interesting to me as someone who has worked in the media and cares about journalism. We have come to a point in American journalism where there is a reporting divide as big as the Grand Canyon, with liberals on one side and conservatives on the other. Closing the […]

Media malpractice

Our betters in the mainstream media often tout their layers and layers of fact-checkers, their professionalism and training. Unfortunately, far too often we see reporting that can be described as media malpractice. Media malpractice at Newsweek: Does the story support the headline? Last week, before President Donald Trump nominated circuit court Judge Amy Coney Barrett […]

The Wrong Way to Restore Media Credibility

Today, at the behest of the Boston Globe, more than 350 newspapers, large and small, are publishing editorials taking aim at President Donald Trump's constant complaining about "Fake News" and the biased news media. This is the wrong way to restore media credibility in the people who already mistrust what reporters are telling them. Two papers […]

Sexual assault is a serious crime

Sexual assault is a serious crime, and it should be treated as such. Since 2011, when the Obama administration's Education Department released its infamous "Dear Colleague" letter, many colleges and universities have taken it upon themselves to create a legal system that bears more in common with star chambers than with the legal regime under the […]

DACA, the law, and doing the right thing

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA as it is more popularly known, will be winding down in six months (maybe) and the media and the American left (but I repeat myself) are in full-blown meltdown mode. A brief history of DACA: After years of claiming (accurately) that the constitution prohibited him from making something […]

How Impeachment Works

Since Donald Trump was unexpectedly elected President of the United States, foes on the left, and to a lesser extent the political right, have contemplated the impeachment and removal from office of the tiny-handed, comb-overed vulgarian. Unfortunately, many aren't too clear on exactly how impeachment works. Saturday evening, a link to a post from the […]

Debate moderators should facilitate, not fact-check

The inclusion of “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace as one of the moderators for this fall’s presidential debates sparked a firestorm when he told colleague and media reporter Howard Kurtz that it wasn’t his job as a moderator to fact-check the candidates during the actual debate. I do not believe that it is my […]

Black Lives Matter is Getting Black People Killed

The Black Lives Matter movement is getting black people, and police officers, killed. The groundwork was laid with Trayvon Martin, a black teenager who jumped  Neighborhood Watch volunteer George Zimmerman for following him. Martin was straddling Zimmerman, raining down blows on his head when Zimmerman managed to draw his gun and shoot his attacker. Although […]

I just got off the phone with one of Artur Pawlowski’s lawyers. It has been six hours and police are refusing to allow Artur to talk to his lawyers (or his son). This isn’t an arrest. It’s a rendition — a police state kidnapping. http://www.SaveArtur.com

I have just been informed by my nephew that there's a song about not mining straight down in Minecraft and I just...
