    Ha ha ha! Somebody on the left just noticed that NPR is left-biased as well as race and sex obsessed. NPR's Brilliant Self-Own - National Public Radio complains about a media figure who tells people "what their opinions should be" and uses political "buzzwords" Man, I can’t help myself, I’m actually beginning to like this new Matt Taibbi:Yesterday’s NPR article, “Outrage As A Business Model: How Ben Shapiro Is Using Facebook To Build An Empire,” is among the more unintentionally funny efforts at media criticism in recent times. The piece is about Ben Shapiro, but one doesn’t have to have...
  • Tennessee State Defies Taxpayers By Hiring Al Sharpton To Teach Political Science

    In yet another blow to common sense on college campuses, Tennessee State University has hired Al Sharpton as a visiting professor teaching “political science grounded in social justice.” Tennessee State is a public university and thus it is taxpayer funded. In fact, billions of American taxpayer dollars help to fund higher education each year. Last year, President Trump notably threatened to suspend federal funding if colleges and universities fail to protect free speech on campus.

    Let’s Google together. Open a Web browser and search for T-shirts. I’ll wait. Is the first thing you see a search result? I’m not talking about the stuff labeled Ads or Maps. On my screen, the actual result is not in the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh or even eighth row of stuff. It’s buried on row nine....Google is, quite literally, a bad personal shopper. Here, side by side, are Google results for T-shirts from the Wayback Machine in 2000 and 2013 alongside what I see in 2020.. Relative to 2000, today you have to scroll six times...
  • Amazon Doubles Down on Excluding Some Conservative Nonprofits from Customer Donations

    In yet another slap in the face from far-left tech giants to conservatives, Amazon.com recently doubled down on its policy that prohibits customers from donating proceeds from their purchases to well-established conservative nonprofits like the Family Research Council and the Alliance Defending Freedom. While Amazon customers can use the AmazonSmile program to donate a portion of each purchase to left-leaning organizations like Planned Parenthood, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, and the Center for American Progress (and to be fair, to many right-leaning organizations, too), Amazon has decided to single out a few well-known conservative organizations like FRC and ADF from...

    Tony Timpa wailed and pleaded for help more than 30 times as Dallas police officers pinned his shoulders, knees and neck to the ground. “You’re gonna kill me! You’re gonna kill me! You’re gonna kill me!” After Timpa fell unconscious, the officers who had him in handcuffs assumed he was asleep and didn’t confirm that he was breathing or feel for a pulse. As precious minutes passed, the officers laughed and joked about waking Timpa up for school and making him waffles for breakfast. Body camera footage obtained Tuesday by The Dallas Morning News shows first responders waited at least...
  • Former CBS News president: Most major cable news outlets 'unrelentingly liberal' in 'fear and loathing' of Trump

    Former CBS News President Van Gordon Sauter delivered a scathing critique of news outlets, saying two out of three leading cable news sources, in particular, "are unrelentingly liberal in their fear and loathing of President Trump." Sauter, who served as CBS News president on two occasions in the 1980s, asked in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece published on Sunday whether a large segment of the public will "ever put stock in journalism it considers hostile to the country’s best interests." “The highly influential daily newspapers in New York, Washington, Los Angeles and Boston are now decidedly liberal,” Sauter wrote....

    On the 50th anniversary of Earth Day -- something of an ecological feast day -- journalistic, philanthropic and religious leaders echoed the spirit of the original celebration: The human race is a cancer on the planet. In the sternly reinforced quiet of stay-at-home orders, this Team Earth reveled in how the world is such a better, cleaner, calmer place when most humans can't commute or commit tourism. CBS reporter John Blackstone found a silver lining in the pandemic, saying, "From goats in a deserted town in Wales to lions lounging on a road in South Africa, nature seems to be...

    As we see Google increasingly becoming both politically correct in what it provides as search results (and I have not found other search engines to be much better), as well as (it seems to me) favoring pages that provide brief, cursory info (likely due to mobile devices), then I want to create a custom search engine for conservative (mainly political/ideological) issues, which Google enables one to do. And which is relatively easy to do, and here it is as of now, https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=011383487679067898861:gug5bh6z5ol (look for search bar in top left corner). That is the public URL, though Google provides a code...

    If you read a publication that claims newspapers have become biased, you might assume that the source of that charge was conservative. However, it might surprise you to know that even the liberal New York Review of Books also made that claim of bias in their February 27 issue in an article by Nicholas Lemann, "Can Journalism Be Saved?" The story was a review of books about the state of newspaper journalism. Lemann was discussing a couple of books by Michael Schudson and Matthew Pressman when he made the unusual admission of flat-out newspaper bias in recent years:

    Townhall.com ^ | DEcember 30, 2019 | Marina Medved
    For decades we have said that there is a liberal slant in education, a leftist bias. But the concept of tacit liberal influence is in the distant past. Today, liberalism is at the forefront. Liberalism is the curriculum. Grade schools throughout the country are rewriting their history curriculums based on today's leftist politics. Some Illinois, New York and New Jersey public schools are teaching a collection of New York Times leftist opinion essays known as the 1619 Project as factual objective history. This leftist propaganda project audaciously rewrites our history as a country that was started as a "slavocracy" in...

    * Must Watch Video * (25 mins) In this exclusive interview with The New American's Alex Newman, Wikipedia Founder Larry Sanger explained why he is now a critic of the online encyclopedia he helped to create. Sanger, who serves as executive director of the Knowledge Standards Foundation, blasted the liberal bias of Wikipedia, as well as the lack of public participation. He says the Big Tech companies have centralized the Internet, and that must be reversed. And finally, he talks about the pedophilia scandals involving elites from Silicon Valley, Hollywood, government, and beyond, saying humanity must understand how the world...

    A charity event in honor of a police officer killed while responding to a mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California last year has been canceled after the local police chief and a Democratic politician objected to the participation of prominent Republicans, according to organizers who spoke with a local Fox affiliate. The event, a flag-football game called the Blue Bowl, was supposed to have taken place at Newbury Park High School in Thousand Oaks. Los Angeles Rams football players were scheduled to show up and sign footballs imprinted with pictures of the fallen officer, Sgt. Ron Helus. And thousands of...

    This week, The New York Times caved to online bullying and changed a headline for an article covering President Donald Trump's remarks after the horrible shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. The original headline, "Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism," was met with outrage on social media by those on the left. During the day, the hashtag #CancelNYT began trending. The headline was changed to "Assailing Hate but Not Guns." So, if the headline was initially wrong, what did Trump say on Monday in response to the shootings? Trump noted that the El Paso shooter had "posted a...

    (CNN)In his first 869 days as President, Donald Trump said 10,796 things that were either misleading or outright false, according to The Washington Post's Fact Checker. Do the math and you get this: The President of the United States is saying 12 untrue things a day. Which is a lot! But it's also hard to wrap your head around how much lying or, uh, misleading that actually is. So, think about it this way: Trump is lying more every day than a majority of Americans wash their hands. According to data from The Soap and Detergent Association (yes, this is...

    Today I ran searches for information about the scandal in the Catholic Church. I specifically wanted news related to Italian newspaper reports which hinted that Pope Benedict's dossier on the Gay mafia within the Church was going to be made public. I got little or nothing on the mainline search engines - Google returning only generalized references to the scandal from Legacy media. I used DuckDuckGo and found sites from alternative Traditional Catholic online sources (ChurchMilitant -OnePeterFive) listed right off on the first page. It seems that search algorithms defer. At the risk of asking a stupid question when I...

    During spring 2018, tens of thousands of teachers in West Virginia, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Arizona, Colorado, and North Carolina walked out of their schools. These teachers were angry about pay, school funding, proposed benefit changes, and more. The walkouts attracted extensive media attention across the land; that coverage has helped shape public understanding of the strikes and any political impact. With that in mind, in a new report published by the American Enterprise Institute and Education Next, we’ve examined how five national newspapers (the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and USA Today) covered the strikes....

    A New Jersey community college is investigating why a professor shouted the F-word at a student in an incident that was caught on camera. The student identifies as politically conservative, and the incident has sparked complaints about the college as a liberal atmosphere where alternative political viewpoints are not tolerated. During a Sociology 105, Intercultural Communication class Wednesday, Brookdale Community College professor Howard Finkelstein grew angry with his student, Christopher Lyle, shouted "f--- your life," and pounded his hand on a table, according to video obtained by NJ Advance Media.

    I love Joy Reid. Whenever I need a break from the monotonous reporting of corrupt Democrats rigging elections for Hillary Clinton, I take a little peek over at the host of MSNBC's AM Joy’s Twitter page. In part because she seems like a genuinely nice person, albeit moronic. But also because the left-leaning host is typically spouting off some ignorant statement with a child-like curiosity to her #reiders- the self-appointed term she designated for her fans and followers. I enjoy reading what the left is thinking or rather feeling,  as most of the time it appears no critical thinking is occurring...

    A friend likens The New York Times to a 1960s adolescent who refuses to grow up.  In a perpetual state of outrage, it is a newspaper of college snowflakes who embrace all forms of diversity except thought. It sees its liberal politics not as a point of view, but as received wisdom that cannot be legitimately disputed. The fixation on conformity reached a new low last week when the paper rolled out a coordinated attack on those of us who believe special counsel Robert Mueller ought to resign. I say coordinated because the newsroom and the opinion page produced similar...
