    RUSH: Weve got that. We got the Republican tax plan that was introduced. One thing about these tax plans. You know, its okay to have a reaction, and this clearly deserves one, but what they put forth in the early stages is never what they end up voting on. This is gonna go through a whole bunch of changes and other things. And it may never get to a vote like Obamacare. You have to realize what were talking about. Were talking about people who dont want to really do anything on taxes. Theyre forced to make it look like...

    The sale of the New York Daily News for a dollar isn't the death of the sleazy leftist tabloid. It died a while back. Today, the Daily News is best known for its trolling front pages. That and bizarre trolling hate pieces from a staff of repurposed and unqualified trash like Linda Stasi, a former Post movie critic turned hate spewing bigot, and sportswriter Mike Lupica, trying to churn out political commentary. Stasisummoned a boycott of the already failing paper when she blamed one of the victims of the Muslim terror attack in San Bernardino because he was a...

    Daily News ^ | Nov. 2, 2016
    The Daily News again extends its wholehearted endorsement of Hillary Rodham Clinton. We do so with faith that Clinton would be a transformative leader for the good, far beyond making history as the first female President. And we do so with fact-based, fearful conviction that Donald Trump would lead a nation divided against itself, with catastrophic consequences at home and abroad. Lost in a campaign distorted by Trump's ego-driven demagoguery is the indisputable truth that Clinton's instincts, skills and programs are an excellent match for the challenges of a uniquely frightening American moment.

    The Daily News is set to continue its recent streak of provocative front pages on Wednesday. According to a tweet from the New York tabloid, the newspaper will depict Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump cutting off the head of the Statue of Liberty. "When Trump came for the Mexicans, I did not speak out — as I was not a Mexican. When he came for the Muslims I did not speak out — as I was not a Muslim. Then he came for me," the headline blared. In smaller text, the Daily News said the headline was based on Martin...

    Breitbart ^ | 12/04/2015 | John Nolte
    Our beloved elite media loves to fabricate a major freak-out over “rhetoric” whenever a Republican says something they don't approve of (like the truth). But when it comes to actual hate rhetoric and the kind of fear-mongering that could get someone hurt, no one is worse than the elite media. Case in point: Friday, on the front page of the New York Daily News, the NRA's Wayne LaPierre is attacked in big red letters as a "TERRORIST." LaPierre's mug shot resides right next to actual terrorists Syed Farook, Robert Dear, Adam Lanza, James Holmes, and Dylann Roof. This is only...

    It appears that simple fact checking isn't part of the reporting process at the New York Daily News. Even worse, the story that they declined to fact check was about an explosive situation in Sanford, Florida where supposedly neo-nazis were patrolling the streets in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting. The Daily News finally revised their story but only after being contacted by professor William Jacobson of the Legal Insurrection blog who did the fact checking for them with the Sanford police that they should have done in the first place. Here is the Daily News excerpt below the...

I simply do not know how to reconcile what I've read with the man I know. I spoke to him Tuesday. He offered to retire and I immediately accepted. I knew I'd never be comfortable running his byline again. For a long time Tuesday, we struggled with how to...
