Mon, 01/15/2018 - 02:29
<p>In the midst of reports of the president’s unfortunate reference to immigration from “s---hole” countries, the <em>PBS NewsHour </em>analysts were agreeing with each other on everything on Friday, but NPR’s Week in Review segment brought listeners an actual debate. Conservative <em>Orange County Register</em> columnist John Phillips was back to shock NPR snobs with a pro-Trump set of arguments. </p>

NY Times and CNN Take Their Anti-Trump Psychobabble to the Dogs

Mon, 01/15/2018 - 01:09
<p>In a January 8 <em>New York Times</em> column, novelist and self-proclaimed dog lover Jennifer Weiner (rhymes with "diner") showed that she has problems with the Trump family not owning a dog. In the process, she lied like one about Trump's attitude towards the family pets of Vice President Mike Pence, and repeated the lie on Saturday when she appeared on Michael Smerconish's CNN show.</p>

Sun, 01/14/2018 - 21:18
<p>Bye-bye Hillary? Amy Chozick’s profile on the front of the <em>New York Times</em> Sunday Review featured the headline “Without Her.” It was a regretful (possible) goodbye to Hillary the high-profile feminist heroine, while crediting her with igniting the #MeToo movement, and postponing mention of her inconvenient husband as long as possible: "Hillary Clinton, the first woman who had a real shot at the presidency, has finally set off a national awakening among women. The only catch? She did it by losing."</p>

Politico Magazine Ridicules Recently Retired New York Times Publisher

Sun, 01/14/2018 - 19:56
<p>If recently retired New York Times publisher, Arthur O. "Pinch" Sulzberger, expected to finally receive some respect now that he has turned the keys of his newspaper kingdom over to his son, A.G. Sulzberger, he would be quite disappointed after reading the January 14 <em>Politico Magazine</em> story. Senior Media Writer Jack Shafer ridicules Sulzberger and how he ran the <em>Times</em> during his quarter century reign there until he retired on January 1. The profile of just how out of his depth the elder Sulzberger was is brought to us as part of advice to Sulzberger the Younger in which Shafer suggests that he <em>Sell the New York Times. Now.</em></p>

AP Predictably Botches Reporting on Immigration-DACA 'Negotiating'

Sun, 01/14/2018 - 18:14

Stephanopoulos Exploits Death of US Soldier to Take a Shot at Trump

Sun, 01/14/2018 - 17:06
<p>ABC Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos stepped up the liberal media’s condemnation of President Trump during Sunday’s <em>This Week</em> by heinously exploiting the heroic death of a U.S. soldier to take a snide shot at the President for his recent immigration comments. As he was wrapping up the show, Stephanopoulos drew attention to the death of Private Emmanuel Mensah. Private Mensah was an immigrant from Ghana who sacrificed himself to save several others from a fire that was consuming the apartment building he was staying at with family while he was on leave.</p>

Sun, 01/14/2018 - 15:43
<p>Since Thursday, the liberal media had been having a field day attacking President Trump when it was leaked that he had slammed certain counties for being undesirable places to live. Since then, CNN has been the banner carrier for those eager to pass opinion off as news and call the President a racist with impunity. On Sunday’s <em>Inside Politics</em>, CNN host John King was no different as he led a panel of journalists in anti-Trump smears while claiming to know exactly what racist thoughts were in his head.</p>

Sun, 01/14/2018 - 14:48

Sun, 01/14/2018 - 12:07
<p>ABC<em> Nightline </em>host Dan Harris is promoting a new book called <em>Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics</em>. One way the self-described “unabashed meditation evangelist” pushed his message was a <em>Time</em> magazine essay on “How meditation can help in the era of angry politics.” He wrote about how conservatives seek "liberal tears" and liberals? Their "hearts soar" every time Robert Mueller gets closer to impeaching Trump. </p>

<p>NPR's <em>All Things Considered</em> on Thursday zeroed in on a pro-life organization that tries to get the employees of abortion facilities to end their participation in the killing of unborn babies.

Sarah McCammon labeled the organization an "anti-abortion group." McCammon later noted that Johnson has "gradually been embraced by the anti-abortion rights movement."</p>

Not National News: Costco Pushes Back Against Seattle's Sugary Drink Tax

Sun, 01/14/2018 - 02:23
<p>The City of Seattle probably didn't expect pushback from Costco, seen by many on the left as retail's "anti-Walmart," after its "sugary drink" tax of 1.75 cents per ounce went into effect January 1. But that is exactly what has happened. In moves the national press, which largely supports such taxes, has thus far ignored, Costco is itemizing the built-in cost of the tax on its Seattle store's shelf tags, and informing customers that they won't pay the tax if they shop at one of two other Costco stores outside Seattle's city limits.</p>

Sat, 01/13/2018 - 19:00
<p>By now, the shock and awe of Rupert Murdoch’s December 14 sale of 21th Century Fox to Disney has set in, so it’s worth a look back at how Murdoch built Fox into the mammoth film and television force it’s become today.
