  • Beware Those Hysterical Historians

    01/20/2021 4:05:55 AM PST · by Kaslin · 19 replies ^ | January 20, 2021 | Tim Graham
    Liberals love to insist they're on the "right side of history," and their confidence crests in the liberal dominance among historians. Just as the liberal media dominate our evaluation of day-to-day developments, liberals count on their historians to dominate our evaluation of the decades behind us. It's not just historians but our taxpayer-funded storytellers, like the insufferable PBS documentarian Ken Burns. On the day before President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, NPR's "Morning Edition" presented him as an American treasure with no partisan bias. So, skip over the propaganda film on Ted Kennedy he made for the 2008 Democratic National Convention, which...
  • Thought Control by Controlling the News

    Like many people, I attended school, K-12, and four years in college. I then spent two years in graduate school. For all the lessons I was taught and all the reading I've done – thousands of books – added to all the historical movies, TV shows, and documentaries that I've watched, I never once was told that the barbarians who invaded Rome were, indeed, justified. The Real BarbariansThe Romans were the ones who acted like barbarians to their captors and to the slaves that they made out of them. This 'personal' revelation came to me as a result of watching...
  • The Bias of Books about Presidents

    12/06/2020 4:30:52 AM PST · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | December 6, 2020 | Jeff Davidson
    What will future mainstream published books on "president-elect" Biden say about the "dashing, coherent, charismatic statesman"? With the release of Obama's third book, a 700-page self-glorification tome, we each need to be reminded of what gets published and promoted in the mainstream press, and what never sees the light of day. From the day Donald Trump was inaugurated and, realistically, even months before that, the mainstream press, major book publishers, and most print media had ill-will for Donald Trump. Seemingly 24/7, Trump’s every move was detected, inspected, analyzed, and categorized as something malevolent. A spate of published books during his...

    Full title: Emmanuel Macron accuses the Anglo-American press of legitimising terrorism in France by suggesting the country is racist and Islamophobic because of his stance on extremists..The French President called The New York Times media correspondent Ben Smith to criticise the paper's English-language coverage of France's stance on Islamic extremism in the wake of recent attacks in the country. ...In his column about their exchange, Smith said the French president had argued 'foreign media failed to understand 'laicite,' or secularism, a pillar of French policy and society.

  • NPR Defines Hunter Biden News as a Waste of Time

    10/23/2020 5:25:22 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 43 replies ^ | October 23, 2020 | Tim Graham
    "Public broadcasting" is a comical phrase. Its audience is not the public. It is the left. PBS and NPR don't care one iota what everyone else thinks...even if everyone else pays a chunk of their budget through taxes. On the morning before the last presidential debate, Kelly McBride, NPR's "public editor" -- the person who is supposed to bring outside perspectives from the public into the NPR bubble -- tweeted, "Why haven't you seen any stories from NPR about the NY Post's Hunter Biden story?" Below a link to her newsletter was a quote in bold type from Terence Samuel,...
  • Democrats' Threats to End the Filibuster and Pack the Supreme Court Will Help Republicans in November

    Despite pundits’ reactions to the contrary, the new Supreme Court vacancy will improve Republican odds keeping the Senate and the presidency. The Democrats are showing voters, like never before, what is at stake in this election. Conservatives will be driven to vote for Trump if they fear giving Joe Biden the chance to appoint Ginsburg’s successor. And if Trump successfully appoints her replacement before the election, that specific reason for voting will does indeed vanish.But now, Democrats have made a new threat that is sure to get Republicans to the polls. Some are openly pledging that, if the vacancy is filled,...
  • Bill Barr Knows There’s No Such Thing as 'Peaceful Violence'

    Attorney General Bill Barr has established himself as one of the few public officials willing and able to accurately describe the ongoing wave of violence and radicalism. In an interview with Mark Levin on Sunday, Barr cut straight to the point with his description of the violent, organized, and often armed “anti-fascist” radicals who have been rioting in cities across the country.“They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism,” he said, “they are essentially Bolsheviks[.]”Barr went on to make clear that when masked extremists attack police, destroy property, and “occupy” city streets and public...
  • NBC Reporter: Trump Using Federal Agents into Democrat-run Cities to Prepare for Military Takeover in Novemmber

    I mean, this isn’t totally shocking for MSNBC, but it doesn’t mean it isn’t insane and irresponsible. We all know the situation in Democratic-run cities is out of control. Since George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis on May 25, urban America has been set aflame. Seattle had armed lefty militias seize portions of the city. Portland is a total mess. Chicago is a mess, with shootings ravaging the city. In New York City, it’s reverting back to the warzone that is was back in the early 1990s. And all of this as left-wing city councils move to “defund the police.”...

    Editor's Note: This piece was co-authored by Jim McCoy. Eldridge Cleaver may have died at age 62 on May 1, 1998, but you would think that he was organizing and leading the national riots about George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks. Black Lives Matter has now become the new Black Panther Party. The mainstream media are now lionizing these riots just as they did in 1968 after Cleaver wrote Soul on Ice when the New York Times writer Lindsay Patterson effused that the work was brilliant and revealing, in an article titled "Eldridge Cleaver: Post-Prison Writings and Speeches."It has been 52...
  • Kayleigh McEnany Shines on the Job

    Don't listen to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany's predictable critics. The level of vitriol the leftist media hurls at her daily -- during and apart from the press briefings -- conclusively proves she is doing a superb job. Liberal journalists whip their long knives in her direction and seem shocked she doesn't grovel. They've been savaging her since her first press conference on May 1. No one with the audacity to work for President Donald Trump deserves a second's worth of honeymoon. On McEnany's first day, New York Times White House correspondent Annie Karni quoted her as saying she...
  • Former Fox News Host Cites This as 'the Worst Journalistic Fiasco' He's Ever Seen. He's Not Wrong

    Former Fox News host Brit Hume has seen a lot on his career in media that spans five decades. He’s still a regular fixture on the network, serving as a senior political analyst, but he has cited one event that has been a total trainwreck for the industry: The Trump-Russia collusion hoax. From the get-go, it started out as sour grapes from liberals. How could Hillary lose; Trump must’ve cheated? This circus began quickly. As we now know, former President Barack Obama held a key meeting on January 5, 2017—days before the Trump inauguration—to lay out his game plan for...
  • Are They Stupid Or Do They Just Think That We Are?

    Journalists have long held their audiences in contempt. Not active contempt of the hatred variety, but condescending contempt – the belief that we’re all so far beneath them as to be insignificant and unworthy of their genius. They’re better than us, just ask them. That attitude was on full display over the weekend on Meet the Press and the ironically named “Reliable Sources,” when the personalities that host those shows committed arrogant and hypocritical frauds on their audiences that can only happen when you’re marinated in the ignorance of your own body odor. Brian Stelter, the talentless Democratic Party mouthpiece...
  • Media Prefer Hating Trump to Helping America

    The liberal media are urging Joe Biden to form a shadow government to upstage President Donald Trump's crisis response effort, which illustrates its consuming partisanship -- and its insufficient attention to the health and welfare of the American people. MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle floated the idea during an interview with former Barack Obama staffer Jim Messina. Referring to Trump's COVID-19 daily press briefing, Ruhle asked, "Should Joe Biden be counterprogramming that? Should he be creating his own shadow government, shadow Cabinet, shadow SWAT team, and getting up there at a podium every night, saying, 'Here's the crisis we're in. Here's...

    Every once in a while, the liberal journalists at PolitiFact grant President Donald Trump a rare rating of "Mostly True." Most recently, they verified a Trump tweet about Joe Biden: "During the 2009 swine flu outbreak, Biden made reckless comments unsupported by science & the experts. The Obama Admin had to clean up his mess & apologize for his ineptitude." They explained that on April 30, 2009, Biden was interviewed by then-NBC host Matt Lauer on the "Today" show. Lauer asked, "If a member of your family came to you and said, 'Look, I want to go on a commercial...

    Why are some liberal journalists so terribly upset about a bit of satire poking fun at them and their sacred cows? Well, you might feel the same way if you had such a tenuous grip on credibility. Over the past week, there has been an unprecedented amount of anger and disingenuous concern over the obviously fake — but nevertheless hilarious — articles and headlines published by The Babylon Bee, an evangelical Christian satire site. Meanwhile, impeccably liberal comedian Ricky Gervais is under fire for roasting politically active celebrities when he hosted the Golden Globe Awards. What was it that set...

    “It couldn’t happen to a nicer group of people,” was the thought going through my head during the opening monologue of the Golden Globes. Ricky Gervais was stripping the room full of self-important blowhards fully naked, exposing every mole and hypocrisy for the people at home to see, and it was glorious. Naturally, the affluent asses in the audience didn’t like being exposed as frauds, grousing and growling through their skewering as best they could, while undoubtedly unleashing their publicists to do damage control. Like a good dog, all too eager to appease entertainment media snapped to attention, ready with...

    You must have a heart of stone not to burst into uncontrollable, hysterical laughter at the agony of the failing New York Times and the rest of the media over how conservative activists are going to apply the same internet colonoscopy to lib journalistas as they apply to us. Monsters! Fascists! Meanies! Oh yeah, that’s the ticket. Drink in their pain. Drink it all in. Mmmmm, that’s some delicious pain. Yeah, conservatives are fighting back, and to the other side it’s an assault on the free press and further evidence that Trump is totally Hitler and probably Stalin too. But...

    On a recent trip to the beach in Delaware with my family, my wife pointed out something I didn’t realize I’d noticed too: just how unhinged liberals are. I’m not talking about the clowns you see on TV, it’s hard not to notice how far past the edge of sane they’ve gone. I’m talking about otherwise seemingly normal people infected by what cable news has done to them. It’s easy to dismiss CNN and MSNBC as fringe outfits preaching to the progressive choir because their ratings are an embarrassment compared to Fox News. But it’s important to remember that the...

    In the wake of the horrific mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, liberals have decided to ban another word: illegal immigrant. Despite the fact that it’s been used in the political lexicon for decades, it’s now seen as a call for violence…if you’re an unhinged liberal. In journalism, illegal immigrant (or alien) was used—and nothing happened. Why? Well, because there’s a special class of people who commit these mass shootings, most are mentally ill. And in the case of El Paso, the shooter seemed like a loser fuming over the fact he lost a job opportunity at a local store....

    The world gets crazier by day. We won't die of shock from anything Nancy Pelosi comes up with, but we could die laughing about the president "routinely complaining without evidence that social media sites are biased against him and other conservatives. The leftwing media world is getting crazier by day, and it’s not just the 2020 Democrat primary contenders letting it all hang out at their absurd debates. According to Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “it shouldn’t be a crime to cross into the United States illegally”. It shouldn’t be, as far as you’re concerned, Mrs. Pelosi ,but according to...
