Tom Nichols: How the P.C. Police Propelled Donald Trump

By assailing sensible conservatives as sexists, racists ... The American left created Donald Trump. When I say “the left,” I do not mean the Democratic Party—or, solely the Democratic Party. Rather, the pestilence that is the Trump campaign is the result of a conglomeration of political, academic, media, and cultural elites who for decades ... MORE

Twitter Is Gearing Up To Interfere In The Election

by Milo Yiannopoulos.       Last week, a report from BuzzFeed claimed that Twitter was about to implement an algorithmic news feed, a departure from the chronologically-ordered tweets which users have grown accustomed to, and by which the platform is defined. CEO Jack Dorsey sought to calm users by saying they had no plans to implement  ... MORE

Glenn Greenwald: U.S. Radically Changes Its Story Of The Boats In Iranian Waters To An Even More Suspicious One

Government's first instinct is to lie.  When news first broke of the detention of two U.S. ships in Iranian territorial waters, the U.S. media — aside from depicting it as an act of Iranian aggression — uncritically cited the U.S. government’s explanation for what happened. One of the boats, we were told, experienced “mechanical failure” and thus     ... MORE

Brent Bozell: The Worst Reporting And Punditry Of 2015

You decide which camp is more obnoxious.    If we're counting press clips, in politics the year 2015 was dominated by Donald Trump. The liberal press is emotionally conflicted on this one. Some are delighted with the notion that he's going to destroy the Republican brand with oafish overstatements. Some are disgusted that he's still in the race     ... MORE

Media Seen To Be Biased Against Trump And For Clinton

Unintended transparency.    Voters are far more likely to think the media is biased against Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump than against his chief Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. Forty-seven percent (47%) of Likely U.S. Voters think most reporters are biased against Trump. A new Rasmussen Reports finds that 31% disagree, but 22%      ... MORE

Even The Mainstream Media Notices Obama's ISIS Failure

by Edward Morrissey.  The emperor has no clothes. President Obama, like so many of us, was caught unprepared for ISIS's devastating attack on Paris. But unlike the rest of us, the leader of the free world was also caught unprepared a few days later, this time for the scrutiny of his record on the fight against the terrorist quasi-state. That 1-2 combo   ... MORE

Democrat's Propaganda Battling The Motivated Voter

by Barry Farber.     There’s one battleground where the Democrats are walloping the body fluids out of the Republicans. It’s fitting nobody talks about it because that battlefield is beyond obscure. In fact, few know it exists! It can be summed up in one word Americans never got the hang of in the first place. The word is “propaganda”! Americans tend to  ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: The Ben Carson Flap

Conservative blacks disrupt the MSM narrative.      Dr. Ben Carson's whole life has been very unusual, so perhaps we should not be surprised to see the latest twist — the media going ballistic over discrepancies in a few things he said. Years ago, when I was writing some autobiographical sketches, I dug up old letters, to check out     ... MORE

Brent Bozell: Hillary's 'Victory Lap' Of Lies

Hillary Clinton gives false testimony, journalists yawn.     To hear the media tell it, Hillary Clinton came to Capitol Hill as a bullfighter and easily killed the angry bulls of the House Benghazi committee. The "mainstream" media wondered why these crazy Republicans would "walk into the trap" of trying to scrutinize and question a media    ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Unnecessary Loss Of Life

Politically correct rules of engagement.   War is nasty, brutal and costly. In our latest wars, many of the casualties suffered by American troops are a direct result of their having to obey rules of engagement created by politicians who have never set foot on — or even seen — a battlefield. Today's battlefield commanders must be alert to the  ... MORE

VIDEO: A Banned Segment From Saturday Night Live



The 1998 Robert Smigel animated short film "Conspiracy Theory Rock", part of a March 1998 "TV Funhouse" segment, has been removed from all subsequent airings of the Saturday Night Live episode where it originally appeared. NBC claimed the edit (critical of their parent company) was done because it "wasn't funny". NBC is owned by General Electric/Westinghouse.

We Are The Government: The Power Of Jury Nullification

by John W. Whitehead. Saddled with a corporate media that marches in lockstep with the government, elected officials who dance to the tune of their corporate benefactors, and a court system that serves to maintain order rather than mete out justice, Americans often feel as if they have no voice and no recourse when it comes to holding government    ...

Thomas Sowell: A Debatable 'Debate'

An illustration of what's wrong with the media.     The so-called "debates," among too many Republicans to have a debate, are yet another painful sign of how much words and ideas have degenerated in our times. No one expects these televised sound bites and "gotcha" questions to be anything like the historic Lincoln-Douglas debates on the   ... MORE
