  • Woman Arrested for Challenging Denny’s Hypocritical All-You-Can-Eat Pancake Policy

    NY Mag ^ | 11/16/2015 | Jessica Roy
    One brave woman in Illinois was arrested last week for standing up for herself in the face of tyranny. Pancake tyranny. Denny's customer Natasha West was sharing an innocent plate of all-you-can-eat pancakes with her friends when a waitress approached her and told her that wasn't allowed. Instead of backing down, West decided to defend her right to share pancakes. Unfortunately, she dodged the check (not cool) and tried to hit the waitress (super not cool) and was subsequently arrested. Some people are just exceedingly passionate about breakfast foods.

    Unlike the revolution started by the printing press which soon stabilized, internet changes are not merely drastic but continually accelerating.The internet has changed everything, so much so that even I, a man who has been online for 19 years, am constantly amazed at the pace of accelerated change. The printing press changed the world in a few decades in the 16th century. The internet is even more revolutionary. Even more so than the press, the internet has evaporated prior means of didactic instruction. The printing press created change, but only the rich could afford to buy one. For less than...

They completely censored it from American eyes, lest they be inspired to stand up against Obama’s sinister plans to import up to 200,000 so-called “Syrian refugees.”According to Top Right News:http://toprightnews.com/this-nation-just-had-a-massive-protest-against-islam-horrified-media-censors-it/ Described as the ‘largest demonstration in Polish history’, over 100,000 Polish nationalists took to the streets yesterday in the city center of Warsaw against immigration into Europe and the European Union—and in particular against the latter’s demands that Poland...

    In "The Plot Against America," the novelist Philip Roth imagines an alternative history at the dawn of World War II. Charles A. Lindbergh, aviator hero and crypto-fascist, defeats Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1940. Rather than go to war against Nazi Germany, he foments an atmosphere of hatred directed at Jews in the United States..... But over the last three months, in listening to plans of the Republican presidential front-runner and the views of his increasingly thuggish followers, I'm starting to have some dark fears should Donald Trump become president. Take him at his word - albeit, a worthless thing given...

    A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the far-Left media's attacks against the U.S. government's no-fly list for "unfairly" targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison -- arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell. It's a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long's cause was being championed by MSNBC's Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front. His story got considerable media attention when his CAIR media representatives here pushed...

    It should be clear by now to anybody paying attention that Donald Trump long ago determined that the traditional concepts of "true" and "false" have no relevance when he decides what words to let fly from his mouth. Even for Trump, though, the last few weeks have presented a stunning parade of howlers, fibs, falsehoods and fabrications - also known as lies. The thing about Trump is that he's so blase about lying, and does it so frequently, that people tend to forget how many made-up facts they've heard from him. Sometimes, it's instructive to make a list of his...

    Obama always claims he found out about scandals from the "news". He only ramps up the fight against ISIS, when the media's reporting makes it obvious that the group is still a problem. So he has an obvious solution. If the media would just stop covering ISIS, it wouldn't be a problem. “The media needs to help in this,” he said, admitting that it has been a “difficult week,” with the threat posed by ISIS becoming a primary focus in the media. “One of the things that has to happen is how we report on this has to maintain perspective,...

    Dr. Ravi Zacharias is one of Christianity’s foremost apologists. His ministry, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, is based in Norcross, Georgia. Is the West being slow-cooked by a resurgence of Islamic fervor across the globe, responding to individual attacks by separate groups but refusing to engage in the wider battle? One of Christianity’s most widely respected thinkers and erudite apologists says that is exactly the case. In an op-ed titled "Is Paris Burning," Ravi Zacharias says Europe, America and the entire free world are being lied to by their politicians and most of their media, who refuse to ask the appropriate...

    Donald Trump's interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC's This Week (above) is a great distillation of why covering the Republican frontrunner is proving so difficult for mainstream press outlets. On the one hand, he demands coverage. He's leading the race everywhere: nationally, in Iowa, in New Hampshire, in South Carolina. And with the exception of a brief surge for Ben Carson that's quickly dissipating, Trump has been leading consistently for more than three months. So outlets like ABC and shows like This Week would, naturally, like the longstanding GOP frontrunner to appear on their programs from time to time. It...

This is one of these stories that liberals claim has been “debunked” because a conservative says it happened and they can’t independently confirm it. It must be a lie! Or, maybe, possibly, these liberal “fact checkers” are just not very good at their jobs.

    Executives from several television networks held a conference call on Monday to discuss Donald Trump's campaign treatment of the press, but no immediate action is expected to come from the first call, sources familiar with the call told POLITICO. Another call is scheduled for this afternoon. Representatives from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CNN discussed how embeds and reporters from outlets are being treated, including being pushed into media "pens." The Washington Post was first to report on the conference call. It's unlikely a formal unified message will be sent to the Trump campaign unless all the networks agree on...

Before an enthusiastic crowd of 10,000 at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex on Saturday, Trump told the crowd, "They’re dishonest people. The media is so dishonest." Trump then set the record straight on how he wants to deal with the ISIS terrorist threat to America. "I want surveillance of certain mosques," he told the crowd. "You know what? We've had it before and we'll have it again." The New York real estate billionaire mocked how the media will react to this announcement. "Oh, they’re going...

After an initial burst of interest spurred by CBS's big-bucks saturation advertising campaign for "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," the show's ratings have tanked and it is now running third in late night behind NBC's Jimmy Fallon and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel, who rarely has managed second place before. The reason? A survey by the Hollywood Reporter found that conservative viewers are turning off Colbert in droves. Nearly twice as many Republicans are watching Kimmel as Colbert, who has turned "Late...

The image on the story is of Jewish children wearing yellow starts during the Holocaust. Very frightening--and a lie. Step 1: Seed. The lie begins with a Yahoo! profile in which Trump is asked, supposedly (the reporter does not provide his exact question), "require registering Muslims in a database or giving them a form of special identification that noted their religion." Trump does not say yes or no. Instead, he dodges the question, and comes back to the...

Cruz noted in a Tweet that the Palestinian Arab terrorism behind Schwartz's murder, as well as behind the whole terror war which has plagued Israel since September, is simply an outcropping of the same radical Islam the US does condemn - that of Islamic State (ISIS).

In the current election cycle, there are signs that a long-standing dynamic might be starting to collapse. Candidates within the large Republican presidential field appear far more willing to defy and unmask the tactics of the national mainstream news media than in previous years. It is unclear whether this dynamic is developing intentionally or if it was thrust upon the candidates out of necessity. Nor is it clear that it will endure throughout the entire nomination process. But for the time being it is...

    Editor's Note: This piece was coauthored by Tim Graham.After seven years of media adoration, President Obama was stunned and prickly. At a press conference in Antalya, Turkey, American reporters kept asking him why he was declaring his anti-ISIS strategy was working, when clearly it isn't. NBC's Chuck Todd found Obama "extremely defensive and almost not yet realizing that many of the reporters in that room, they're channeling the public in this case." For seven years, we've watched the White House press corps channel Obama back to Obama. But this time, on the heels of the Paris massacre, they were in...

    Regardless of who you support in the 2016 Presidential primary race, most will admit there's one strategic advantage held by Donald Trump over all other candidates - Trump's willingness to "own the downside". All policies and proposals have a "downside", there's no such thing as a policy proposal with benefit to all and harm to none. This empirical truth is toxic to professional politicians – therefore they spend an inordinate amount of time using pretzel logic to avoid it. As a direct consequence of avoidance, the media love to use the downside as a weapon. For the first time in...

This administration ALSO tries to lecture Israel whenever that nation targets those who kill her citizens.

    Cruz tends to be an afterthought in the Sunday show chatter, and on TV generally. The Atlantic tracks candidate mentions on cable TV. Over the past 100 days, Cruz ranks ninth among all presidential candidates from both parties, well behind Chris Christie and just above Kasich. Over about the past 30 days, he's still ninth, just ahead of that juggernaut Martin O'Malley. A Washington Post analysis specifically looked at the amount of cable TV coverage devoted to each candidate compared with his or her position in the polls. It found that Cruz got 60 percent less coverage than you'd otherwise...

Politico parsed Carson's imprecise public and written statements about receiving a full scholarship to West Point (actually his ROTC supervisors said they could get him an appointment to the school). The article's new headline no longer hits Carson with a charge of admitting to a fabrication, and it bears an editor's note sort of apologizing for its initially imprecise reporting. This week's media investigations into Carson also covered his views on Egyptian pyramids and...

    Presidential candidate Donald Trump certainly doesn't mince words when it comes to expressing his opinion on just about anything. The GOP businessman continued that trend when he signed an online petition on Monday calling for the Cable News Network to fire “Republican strategist” Ana Navarro, who is also identified as a “political commentator” with CNN.

    Earlier today, we shared a viral video of student photojournalist Tim Tai being confronted by activists while photographing the ongoing University of Missouri protests. One of the main people under fire for their actions in the video is Melissa Click, an assistant professor of mass media. Cameraman Mark Schierbecker has just posted a longer version of his video (embedded above) that shows Click’s role in the human media blockade more clearly. At 7:10 in the video, after Tai has been shooed away by the protesters, Schierbecker finds himself in the center of the camp, which has been set up on...

    Nein! I guess it’s old and busted to go around interviewing Ben Carson’s childhood acquaintances to see if he ever tried to stab anyone. The media has now moved on to truly relevant, ancient history. Are we talking about the national debt exceeding $18 trillion? How to defeat ISIS? How to counter Russian aggression? What to do about ObamaCare? How to get the GDP growing faster than 2.0 percent annually? No, sillies. We need to get to the really relevant questions. So, Jeb Bush, the Huffinton Post wants to know: If you could, would you go back in time and...

    Watch any entertaining presidential primary debates lately? That was an impressive bit of pushback by the GOP candidates on the partisan hack who was masquerading as a debate moderator! After an embarrassment like that how does our media react - apologetic and promising to make a more honest effort next time? Ha Ha! Don't be silly, of course they doubled down on stupid and lashed out at the knuckle-dragging simpletons who dared to question the mainstream press' absolute authority over what the public should be presented as news. Brian Beutler at The New Republic lamented "The GOP's Grotesque Festival...
  • Media Nixing Comments Sections: When “Civility” Really Means “Political Correctness”

    Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views When leftists start talking about “civility,” watch out for your freedom of speech. This again comes to mind with reports that some media outlets are eliminating online comments sections in civility’s name. And while it’s not a First Amendment violation (these are private-sector actions), it is largely motivated by the same mentality spawning speech codes on college campuses and “hate speech” laws overseas. And as with those phenomena, the nixing of online comments is justified with...

    Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is firing back at the media after a series of press investigations into his background. He has the evidence, he said Sunday on ABC's "This Week," to prove that reports amount to nothing more than a "hit job." The Republican presidential candidate targeted two investigations in particular: CNN's inability to corroborate his claim of having a violent childhood, and The Wall Street Journal's questioning of the existence of a psychology class he said he took at Yale University. In a Facebook post early Monday morning, Carson posted what he said was a 1997 Parade Magazine in...

    Don't poke the bear! No, seriously, I love these debates. First of all, they’re entertaining. A comedy writer couldn’t come up with better lines than these moderators. But more than that, each debate offers insights into the candidate’s political views, personal finances, juvenile records, and sex life. Who could ask for anything more? My favorite brawl so far is the third debate, the one with all the hullabaloo about bias journalists (like that’s news). It starts out slow, stump speeches and empty rhetoric. There’s a couple of false starts like when John Harwood asks Trump if he’s running a comic...

    Antidote to Liberalism Ponder this: Why are conservatives such as William Bennett, George Will, Bill Kristol, et al so graciously accepted by the prevailing liberal establishment? Why is there almost a commraderie between today’s prominent conservatives and liberals? It is because today’s conservatives do not challenge the moral premise of statism. Most of today’s conservative leaders are brilliant intellects, but they accept statism’s violation of individual rights and its conveyance of special privileges to a myriad of factions. Thus, they pose no moral threat to liberalism and are not feared by those who are tyrannizing our lives with omnipresent government....

    This tripetoday: ANALYSIS: POLARIZED POLITICS DICTATED OBAMA KEYSTONE CALL WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's decision to block the Keystone XL oil pipeline has exposed an endlessly polarized Washington, and likely hardened its divides. Obama is now being praised to the skies by environmentalists and most Democrats, and denounced in apocalyptic terms by Republicans and the business community. And although environmental issues once produced bipartisan agreement in Congress, consensus on action to increase energy production or deal with climate change looks farther away than ever. "This became a tribal issue of bizarre proportion," said Jason Grumet, president of the...

    What Should be Done about Media Inequalities? A mere 7 percent of journalists identify as Republicans, and when they do give money to political campaigns they usually donate to Democrats, lending evidence to Republican presidential candidates’ claims that they are facing a hostile audience when they deal with the press. The movement toward equality in all things exists in the political forums. Bias is the word applied to inequalities in the media. The media is the primary source of various reports of inequality and the attempts to make unequal things equal. Inequalities of outcome exist because of inequalities of EFFORT....
