Thu, 01/11/2018 - 20:38
<p>CNN host Anderson Cooper played the comedian on Monday night, mocking President Trump in his feature "The Ridiculist," comparing Trump's "stable genius" quote to two old comedy animals: Wile E. Coyote and Mr. Ed, as well as Mindy Kaling's character on <em>The Office. </em>Trump is always mocked for besmirching the seriousness of the office of President, but no one has that kind of respect for the office of Anchorman. They've besmirched it with their own arrogance, that everyone must have their snarky "take" on the world. </p>

Alt-Left Insanity: Liberals Furious Conservative Mark Wahlberg Earned Money

Thu, 01/11/2018 - 19:04
<p>In these days of woke Hollywood, even famous people dare not outdo women. If they do, they receive the wrath of 1,000 think pieces about how poorly women are treated in Tinseltown. Yep, Hollywood is racist and sexist and discriminates against conservatives. The media are upset by two of those. I bet you can guess which ones. But Wahlberg (nee Marky Mark) is being reviled because he did something smart. And because he’s conservative.</p>

Thu, 01/11/2018 - 05:31
<p>Sparks flew during Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s <em>Cuomo Prime Time</em> when White House adviser Kellyanne Conway sparred with rude and demeaning host Chris Cuomo as they discussed the news of the day.

MSNBC Hosts Wrongly Claim Ohio Purges Nonvoters After Just Two Years

Thu, 01/11/2018 - 05:20
<p>On Wednesday, MSNBC was doing its part to spread misinformation that bolsters liberal spin on alleged "voter suppression" by Republicans as anchors Craig Melvin and Hallie Jackson -- hosting <em>MSNBC Live </em>at different times of day -- both wrongly claimed that, according to Ohio law, voters can be removed from the voting rolls if they fail to vote in just two consecutive elections. When Jackson was hosting, guest Jill Colvin of the <em>Associated Press </em>even joined in pushing the misinformation until the <em>Washington Post</em>'s Aaron Blake stepped in to inform them that it actually takes about six years of not voting for a purge to happen -- but even he still fretted that other states might use the Ohio law as precedent to be more restrictive.</p>

NYT’s Strange New Approval for Trump as He Considers Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants

Wed, 01/10/2018 - 21:34
<p>The <em>New York Times</em> may be at its most liberal on the immigration issue, and when President Trump seemed to warm to the idea of a path to citizenship for some illegals, reporters abruptly warmed to him, at least compared to the “hard-line anti-immigration activists” in his party. The lead story by Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Sheryl Gay Stolberg, “Trump Receptive To Working Out Citizenship Path," tempted Trump with chances of political victory, and provided the paper's usual “undocumented” euphemism for illegal immigrants.</p>
