Bozell & Graham Column: So They Were Spying on Trump's Campaign

4 hours 8 min ago
<p>Months ago, the Old Media proclaimed Donald Trump was more than a bit nutty to insist his campaign was the subject of Obama administration surveillance. Now it’s emerging that this wasn’t the slightest bit nutty. <em>The New York Times</em> reported -- in a tone much like having their fingernails dragged across a chalkboard – that the FBI used an “informant” (not a “spy”!) to chat up (and in one case, dangle money at) Trump staffers to investigate Russian finagling with the 2016 election.</p>

Tue, 05/22/2018 - 20:04

GLAAD Media: Hollywood Not Gay Enough

Tue, 05/22/2018 - 18:43
<p>Did you notice an awful lot of gay characters in movies during 2017? If so, you’re an ignorant bigot.

Tue, 05/22/2018 - 16:23
<p>On Tuesday, all three network morning shows were gleeful over the news that Barack and Michelle Obama had signed a deal with Netflix to create original content for the online streaming service.

Missing from much of the adulation, except for a brief mention on NBC, was the fact that the Netflix executive in charge of content was a major Obama campaign donor.</p>
