    My hometown paper drives me crazy. I read The New York Times because it often has good coverage. The newspaper pays to send reporters to dangerous places all around the world. This weekend, the Times Magazine did a surprisingly fair profile of Sean Hannity, although they chose photos that make him look evil. But mostly I read the Times because my neighbors read it, and I need to understand what they think. Sadly, many think dumb things because most every day the Times runs deceitful, biased stories and headlines that mislead. Opinion columns have license to do that, but these...

    The FBI must release the texts. All of them, between Peter Strzok, the top FBI investigator that special counsel Robert Mueller removed from the Russian investigation in August, and his colleague Lisa Page, so voters can examine for themselves whether the probe is what many, including our president, believe it is ... a partisan witch hunt. Without seeing the politically biased texts — the FBI has been stonewalling Congress for months on that and other document requests — one can safely assume the missives must have been highly problematic to prompt a dismissal. So what political biases did agent Strzok...

    Just one day after Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. in the Russia investigation, reports have surfaced accusing a veteran investigator in the special probe of sending disparaging text messages regarding President Donald Trump. The investigator was removed from the probe a few months ago because of the potential of a political bias. The New York Times and The Washington Post both reported December 2 that Peter Strzok, a senior counterintelligence investigator at the F.B.I., was removed from the probe because several disparaging text messages indicated he wasn’t a fan of Trump and was possibly a Hillary...

    Suppose a scientist makes a bold claim that turns out to be true. How confident are you that this claim would become widely accepted? extraordinary evidence. Still, the indirect evidence is mounting and most cosmologists now believe that dark matter exists. To the extent that non-scientists think about this issue at all, we tend to defer to experts in the field and move on with our lives. But what about politically contentious topics? Does it work the same way? Suppose we have evidence for the truth of a hypothesis the consequences of which many people fear. For example, suppose we...

    The Post identifies the participants as “Trump voters,” which is ostensibly true. But they are an unrepresentative sample. What better way to find Trump voters who regret their vote than to talk to non-Republicans. The majority of Trump voters are Republicans, but only a third of the Trump voter focus group participants are Republicans, which may explain why only one participant said she was still fully supportive of the president. The headline says, “Trump voters” but the piece focuses only on women, with the opinions of one man tacked on at the end. The Post doesn’t explain the gender breakdown...
  • WaPo Reporter Goes Rogue, Gives Strategy Briefing to Secret Dem Donor Conference

The Democracy Alliance went to great lengths to keep the identities of its members and guests confidential at its fall investment conference last week at the La Costa Resort, but the Washington Free Beacon obtained a detailed conference agenda that lists both events...

    A Democrat running for Congress was arrested on a stalking charge last week, but the media has refused to give the story any coverage. David Alcon, who is running for an open congressional seat in New Mexico, was arrested this past Friday on a felony stalking charge after a woman accused him of sending her frightening and lewd text messages and showing up at her home. Alcon was previously convicted of stalking his ex-girlfriend in 2007 and was described as “infatuated” and “clearly obsessed” by the judge in the case. The story has been met with silence from a number...

    WASHINGTON — The GOP bill that should be called the Cut Taxes on President Trump and Other Very Rich People Act of 2017 always had a secondary purpose: to jack up the deficit so Republicans could later cry out in horror, “Look at that awful debt!” They’d then use the pools of red ink they created to justify deep cuts in social programs.> But people who call themselves conservative are shovelling out so much money so fast to corporations and the privileged that they needed some health care cuts upfront — at the expense of coverage for millions of our...

    President Trump has made 1,628 false or misleading claims over 298 days By Glenn Kessler, Meg Kelly and Nicole Lewis November 14 at 3:00 AM For some reason, our year-long project analyzing, categorizing and tracking every false or misleading claim by President Trump had seemed like quite a burden in the past month. Well, the numbers are in and now we know why: In the past 35 days, Trump has averaged an astonishing nine claims a day. The total now stands at 1,628 claims in 298 days, or an average of 5.5 claims a day. That puts the president on...

    A very bad week for CNN just got a whole lot worse. Tucker Carlson of Fox News addressed the explosive allegation that CNN is doing what it has done so many times before to protect the Clintons and the Democrat Party: destroy a black person. Carlson says CNN management directed employees to destroy Donna Brazile’s credibility. Carlson said: According to highly informed sources we spoke to – highly informed – top management at CNN directed its employees to undermine Brazile’s credibility. Anchors and producers were vocally offended — many of them — by Brazile’s attacks on their friends, the Clintons....

    ... I have been fretting for some time about Roy Moore coming to the U.S. Senate. He embodies every negative stereotype anyone ever had of people from Alabama. As I wrote soon after his win in the GOP primary, “Moore is bad for Alabama and worse for the GOP.” Well, I didn’t think it was possible when I wrote that piece a couple weeks ago, but things have managed to get even worse. Suffice it to say, I was worried then — and more so now — that if anyone or any company considered moving jobs to Alabama, holding a...

Anchors and producers were vocally offended by her attacks on their friends, the Clintons. If you’ve been watching that channel, you may have noticed CNN’s anchors suggesting that Donna Brazile cannot be trusted, precisely because she took part in efforts to break the primaries for Clinton.” The Daily Caller co-founder then played a clip of CNN hosts trying to make...

    NBC "News" ^ | November 6, 2017 | by Ruth Ben-Ghiat
    Fox News may be enjoying large audiences right now, partly because of its close relationship with the president, but the network is taking a real risk — both to itself and to our democracy — by peddling falsehoods and making the president's political enemies its own. Given those risks, the network's eagerness to take on a role normally occupied by state media in strongman regimes, up through its current attempts to discredit special prosecutor Robert Mueller's investigation, is surprising. This disturbing situation, however, has been long in the making. From 2011 onward, Fox News promoted Trump's presidential ambitions and spread...
