Too many Americans have lost their freaking minds

If the current political season is any indication (and it probably is) then there is plenty of evidence that too many people have lost their freaking minds. Two months ago, one of my friends on Facebook linked to this Gallup survey headlined: "25% in U.S. Say Neither Candidate Would Be a Good President." My succinct […]

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 […]

Reuters fact checks a meme, poorly

On Friday, Reuters news service's fact-checking unit took on a meme going around on social media that lists five "facts" [scare quotes via Reuters] about Sen. Joe Biden's running mate, Kamala Harris. I won't go into all of the claims of this particular meme. Instead, I want to focus on one contentious fact about Harris' […]

Media Fact-Checking Failures

The past couple of weeks have been especially bad for media fact-checking. Two incidents really stand out as the ostensibly unbiased, objective national media have gone all-in on their war on President Donald Trump, their own credibility be damned. Media Not  Interested in Fact-Checking Sen. Tammy Duckworth Two Sundays ago, Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) appeared […]

Media Bias, Political Speech, and Fake News

Another week, another entry in the annals of media bias, political speech and fake news. At last week's State of the Union Address to Congress, President Donald Trump channelled his inner reality show persona and crafted a number of applause lines by recognizing several invited guests whom you really can't help but tip your hat […]

Democrats and Voting Rights

I received the email pictured above on Sunday from the DNC. I'm on their mailing list so I can see what they're all riled up about on any particular day. Sunday was Rep. John Lewis and voting rights. Can you identify the problem? Yep, he thinks "every person in this country has the right to […]

Media Bias at the Local Level

Yesterday, radio talk show host Dave Congalton marked his 27th year hosting his Hometown Radio show on 920 KVEC in San Luis Obispo. One of his guests was Joe Tarica, the San Luis Obispo Tribune's new editor. You can listen to the interview here. Before taking calls (including mine) for the second half of the show, […]

The Migrant Caravan and Reparations

The latest news is that the migrant caravan from Central America, currently stalled in Tijuana, marched to the U.S. consulate there and demanded either entrance to the United States, or a $50,000 per person in reparations for them to go home. This makes me think that most of the migrants are of French extraction: De Gaulle […]

Shutting Down the Government

We're doing the shutting down the government thing again? President Trump met today in the White House with Democrat leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer to talk about the president's priorities and the long and short of it came down to this: If Congress (one-half of which will be run by the Democrats) […]

Election aftermath 2018

The 2018 election aftermath is a flat, dry wasteland with the sun-bleached skulls of of the defeated dotting the desolate landscape. At least, that's how it seems to be portrayed on Twitter. Predictions: Correct! My predictions from election day—which were really nothing more than the conventional wisdom—turned out to be correct. With a handful of […]

Taped The Argument earlier today, fumbled through some closing remarks; this from @michaelbd is the more eloquent version of what I tried to say:

For some amount of time today, the CA DOJ's new data website leaked name and addresses of people with CCW permits.

Someone PM'd me with video evidence of it (can't share to protect confidential info).

Here is a reddit thread with discussion. https://www.reddit.com/r/CAguns/comments/vm723i/attorney_general_bonta_releases_new_firearms_data?sort=confidence
