    Democrats comparing the Capitol Protests to the horrors of 9/11/01 and accusing patriotic Americans of being threats and terrorists is pathetic, dangerous and belies their long patronage to terrorist enemies of our county. They conveniently forget that theCapitol was attacked by theMarxist Weather Underground in 1971 and in 1954 ya Puerto Rican Revolutionary group, pre-curser to the Rican Armed Forces for National Liberation (“FALN”). I was an eye witness to the carnage of 9/11, the murder of cousin Steve Schlag and 3,000 other innocent souls. January 6 was nothing like those meticulously planned attacks on civilians them when hundreds jumped...
  • The 'News' Channels Could Use More News

    The heartbreaking scenes of suffering in Kabul are the kind of "hard news" that many Americans find compelling. But on most days, many Americans don't find "hard news" a compelling thing to watch. People would rather be entertained. Even political junkies want to be entertained -- with political hot takes. A new Media Research Center study of cable news coverage on CNN, MSNBC and Fox is a little depressing. Only 22.3% of the cable news hours surveyed can be defined as "hard news" -- with correspondents reporting from the scene, live coverage of breaking news or an anchor just reading...

    One of the regular tropes of liberal cable news in recent weeks is how Big Tech is censoring any politicians or other leaders who are spreading misinformation about the coronavirus. They cheer when Sen. Rand Paul gets blocked by YouTube, for example, for questioning the effectiveness of masks. But these same liberal cable networks are spewing wild misinformation about COVID-19 ... when it comes to smearing conservatives and Republicans. You can call them murderers and terrorists, and the "independent fact-checkers" and the social media sites yawn and do nothing. These wild-eyed lies are somehow considered fair game. For example, on...

    Source: Townhall MediaYou gotta love the lib reporters meekly accepting the delicious iron discipline of black-clad Mistress Psaki as she demands “Why do you need to have that information?” when asked about the number of infectos in the petri dish that is the * White House. The only way that kink-fest could have been more on the nose with regard to who our esteemed journalismers actually are is if her severe black outfit was vinyl. Apparently, getting flogged by the Democrat dominatrix turns their collective crank because they just took it. They always just take it. And our Fourth Estate...

    The mainstream media is under attack. Not from Donald Trump. Not from conservatives or Republicans. The truth is what threatens today’s mainstream media—and what little credibility to which it may cling—more than just about anything else. In the last few weeks, numerous revelations have broken through the suffocating pressure of “consensus” narratives repeated ad nauseam by the mainstream media, showing that the truth cannot be kept down forever. From the origins of the Wuhan coronavirus to the events surrounding last summer’s violence in American streets, the truth keeps overcoming the misinformation or outright lies of those who act as though...

    Long before the pandemic, the local news business had been in a tailspin. Newspapers across the country lost classified advertising revenue thanks to internet sites like Craigslist. Terrestrial radio stations lost their audience to iTunes -- and then Spotify. Most commercial radio stations don't offer news anymore. Most Americans under 35 think of newspapers and radio news as odd products their parents consume, like Spam and Velveeta. As a college kid in Viroqua, Wisconsin, I covered local news in the summers for our local radio station and called in freelance articles on the city council or school board decisions to...

    More education typically leads to better health, yet Black men in the U.S. are not getting the same benefit as other groups, research suggests. The reasons for the gap are vexing, experts said, but may provide an important window into unique challenges faced by Black men as they try to gain not only good health but also an equal footing in the U.S. Generally, higher education means better-paying jobs and health insurance, healthier behaviors and longer lives. This is true across many demographic groups. And studies show life expectancy is higher for educated Black men — those with a college...

    Everyone knew instinctively that the Biden White House would get enormous cooperation and positive media coverage from the "news" media, given that it follows the alleged democracy-darkening Donald Trump days. But Team Biden's control of the narrative can look more like a stranglehold. On May 10, Politico revealed that "If you've read a quote from an administration official in a newspaper or a wire story recently, there's a good chance that the White House communications team had an opportunity to edit it first." The Biden White House frequently demands that interviews with administration officials be conducted on the grounds of...

    Liberal journalists love to align themselves with "facts" and "truth" and have singled out their liberal "fact-checker" websites as heroes, as if they were somehow the Environmental Protection Agency of political rhetoric.In reality, liberals take conservative accusations extremely literally, while the vilest liberal accusations get a free pass. For example, last October, PolitiFact rated then-President Donald Trump "false" for saying Joe Biden is a socialist. Oh, no, they said, writing: "Biden has not advocated nationalizing industries, a key principle of socialism. His platform on health care, energy and other issues aligns with moderate Democrats, not socialists."Does that look true right...

    After President Biden gave his historic speech before (some of) Congress last Wednesday evening CNN hosted a panel of leftist sycophants to analyze the night. The blatantly slobbering affair was full with fulsome praise for the man, but then Gloria Borger took things to a new level. The expert analyst was being critical of some comments made by Donald Trump, where she was perturbed that the former President was not giving the current President proper credit on his pandemic response.Borger made the astounding announcement that, "everybody understands that Operation Warp Speed happened under Joe Biden." It is something to behold.https://t.co/cZTdMcP9yG—...

    Last week, I asked why there was no uproar from LGBTQ activists when Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner was “misgendered” and mocked by the left after announcing that he would run for governor of California. (In reality, some of the mocking came from LGBTQ activists, who painted Jenner as a fame-hungry reality TV star.) And where was the uproar when Bill Maher questioned the “born that way” dogma, stating, “Wasn't always sure about the man-woman thing, but low capital gains taxes — born that way.”To be sure, there were some scattered voices of protest, but not a fraction of what would have...

    When Democrats get caught in a political pickle, they can count on the borrowed authority of "journalists" and "fact-checkers" to bail them out. Take failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams' pressuring corporations to put a financial squeeze on Georgia. She began a March 31 op-ed in USA Today by writing: "Boycotts work. The focused power of No, trained on corporate actors used to being told Yes, can yield transformative results. As a Black person, a Southerner, an American, I respect and defend the right to boycott -- and the advancement of civil rights has relied heavily on economic boycotts." On...

    Do I live in an alternate universe? The media tell me my side is winning. Salon claims, "We all live in Kochland, the Koch brothers' libertarian utopia." Tucker Carlson says, "Our leadership class remains resolutely libertarian." What? Who? Not President Biden. Biden already spent $1.9 trillion on COVID-19 "recovery" mostly unrelated to COVID. Now, he wants trillions more for an "infrastructure" bill, even though most of the spending would not go to infrastructure. He's eager to regulate more, too. Maybe the pundits were talking about former President Trump. He tried to deregulate -- a little. But Trump vilified trade and...

    As a 38-year-old American, I cannot recall a time in my adult life when the mainstream media peddled such blatant lies on a daily basis. As an amateur historian, I am also unaware of any period in modern American history in which the so-called news media routinely and unapologetically perpetuated falsehoods on such a grand scale.Most Americans realize the mainstream media are biased. According to recent polls, Americans’ trust in mass media has hit all-time lows.Before moving forward, perhaps we should review a few of the many lies perpetuated by the mainstream media over just the past few years.Remember the...

    The shooting by police of Ma’Khia Bryant in Columbus Ohio as she was engaged in the act of attempted murder has brought out all of the worst in our media complex. False claims, narrative-pushing reports, misinformation, and emotional activism have all been prevalent. The miscarriage of journalistic ethics has been stark then, as it appeared the press had reached its nadir last week, in stepped National Public Radio to dig themselves in even deeper.Bodycam footage shows Ma’Khia inches from sending a long-bladed knife into a potential victim just as she was shot, after refusing police orders. The mainstream media has...

    Just as physicists look for equations to explain the natural world, I have always thought it useful to look for equations to explain human nature. For example, in my book on happiness, I offer this equation: U = I - R. Unhappiness = Image - Reality. The difference between the images we have for our life and the reality of our life is one way of measuring how much unhappiness we experience. Here, I offer another theorem, this time to help explain leftism. A + S = B = L Affluence + Secularism = Boredom = Leftism The search for...

    A couple of weeks ago, I had an hour-long interview with a reporter from The American Prospect about PragerU’s program for families, PragerU Resources for Educators and Parents (PREP). Our discussion was genuinely enjoyable, despite our differing opinions about our nation and world. The reporter brought up issues, I offered my take and corrected some projected narratives, and she respectfully and kindly responded with more questions.When I hung up the phone, I thought, “This is how folks on opposite sides should talk about issues together.” I even sent her a thank you note saying how much I enjoyed our conversation...

    Is it too much to ask to know the name of the federal government employee who, on our behalf, shot an unarmed veteran who was, at worst, trespassing in a public building? Apparently, it is, since no one in our glorious, licensed, and neutered regime media seems to want to tell us. They know. They all know. They just don’t want you to know.We know the identity of the incompetent cop who shot the guy with a warrant (for carrying a concealed weapon without permit, which is not even a crime in nearly two dozen free states – racist Democrat...

    If you want to see how the liberal mind works look no further than the media. It’s not just how they cover what they cover, it’s what they cover in the first place. Sometimes, they go all in without regard to facts, and sometimes they rush to a story only to find it is not what they’d thought it to be, hoped it to be, and run away just as quickly. When they run away, the story disappears – like it never even happened. The latest examples of these types of stories involve shootings and an attack at the U.S....

    There is an entire industry in America designed to monitor and lie about conservative media in the hopes of getting people fired. There is no equivalent on the right. Maybe there should be? There are people out there whose job it is to watch hours upon hours of Fox News hoping to find a slip or clip they can take out of context to publicize that will unleash an army of flying monkeys on social media to pressure advertisers to stop spending money to reach their audiences. There are conservatives who have jobs to watch liberal outlets, but their job...
