Tue, 01/16/2018 - 20:30
<p>Leftists in the media don’t like to be called out for their liberal bias. When that happens, their knee-jerk response is to lash out with petty ad hominem attacks.

Samantha Power Discusses Her Hillary 'Victory' Party HBO Documentary

Tue, 01/16/2018 - 18:08
<p>Schadenfreude, schadenfreude, oh beautiful, beautiful schadenfreude! You will soon be able to enjoy some great Election Night 2016 schadenfreude again in the form of HBO's documentary, <em>The Final Year</em>, which will soon be broadcast on that network. As you can see from the trailer below it appears to be mostly a big borefest of Obama administration hype about how wonderful and wise they were. However, its saving grace is that the HBO film crew was at a Hillary "victory" party hosted by former UN Ambassador Samantha Power to celebrate Hillary Clinton winning the election.</p>

Tue, 01/16/2018 - 17:56
<p>Reporters continue to concoct reasons to complain as more than 2 million American individuals and their families have suddenly become better off than they were three weeks ago.

Tue, 01/16/2018 - 15:21

Tue, 01/16/2018 - 11:00
<p>A Media Research Center study of every broadcast evening news story about the Trump administration in 2017 found the new President was by far the biggest story of the year, accounting for one out of every three minutes of evening news airtime; the tone of coverage was incessantly hostile: 90% negative, vs. just 10% positive; and more than two-fifths of evening news coverage of the President (43%) focused on controversies, not policies, with the Russia investigation alone accounting for one-fifth of all Trump coverage (1,234 minutes).<br />     <br /> ■ Despite their massive coverage of Russia, the networks had almost no airtime for questions about how the investigation began, or whether special counsel Robert Mueller’s current investigation is biased.</p>

Irony: TV Doctor Uses Fake Racism Charge to Get Job Back on MLK Day

Tue, 01/16/2018 - 05:46
<p>In the episode titled “Islands” that aired on January 15, Dr. Jared Kalu (Chuku Modu), a biracial surgical resident, desperately wants his job back. He was terminated after a physical confrontation with another doctor. Kalu punched the other guy and the hospital fired him. Reasonable enough, right? The only way for Dr. Kalu to get his job back at San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital, though, is to file suit against the hospital for wrongful termination using racism as the reason. The irony should not be lost on anyone that ABC’s <em>The Good Doctor</em> brings back Dr. Kalu based on a phony racism charge on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.</p>

Tue, 01/16/2018 - 04:26
<p>In an official statement on Friday, the Department of Justice announced the indictment of former Maryland executive Mark Lambert on “11 counts related to foreign bribery, fraud and money laundering scheme.” The indictment effectively tied Lambert to the Uranium One scandal because his alleged illicit activity involved JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), an arm of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation which now owns both TENEX and Uranium One. Despite the importance of the new indictment, the major three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) had been dead silent.</p>
