    Media mogul Rupert Murdoch blasted so-called cancel culture and a "woke orthodoxy" that he described as "awful" and suggested was a threat to the free exchange of ideas in the U.S. and around the world. "For those of us in the media, there's a real challenge to confront: a wave of censorship that seeks to silence conversation, to stifle debate, to ultimately stop individuals and societies from realizing their potential," Murdoch, the executive chairman of News Corp., said in recorded remarks while receiving an award from the Australia Day Foundation, according to The New York Times. "This rigidly enforced conformity,...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | January 20, 2021 | Karl Rove
    President Joe Biden’s inauguration marks not only a new administration’s beginning but also a new chapter for the loyal opposition. The Grand Old Party lost the White House while picking up U.S. House seats, holding half the Senate, and adding to its numbers in state legislative chambers. These conflicting outcomes leave Republicans facing the difficult task of cementing blue-collar Trump voters into their ranks while regaining strength in the suburbs and making inroads with an increasingly diverse electorate. To rebuild, Republicans must decide what their party stands for. The way forward begins with clarifying what the GOP’s answers should be...

    In what surely will be a topic of debate in the days ahead, Fox News opinion host Tucker Carlson in his opening monologue last night came out swinging, declaring that: “Our capital city is currently under military occupation. By Inauguration Day, there are expected to be more than 26,000 armed federal troops in Washington. No living American has seen a moment like the one we’re watching now.” He pressed on nearly twenty minutes overall. Here is a little more of what he said (video above),

    CDN ^ | Nov 12, 2020 | Joseph Ragonese
    When Fox News came online in October 1997, it was an instant success. In short order it quickly overtook CNN, and later all the other cable news outlets that vied for a share of the cable news audience. Under the leadership of Roger Ailes, it crafted a slick team of reporters who reported the news that the others did not. It took several years of continued conservative news for its audience to be assured that they would not be betrayed by this news source. As they had been by all the others. Then the betrayal came. On election night conservatives...

Murdoch has griped about Trump in the past, suggesting in a tweet ahead of the 2016 presidential election that then-candidate Donald Trump had been...

    People who don't buy into the left's big-government healthcare schemes are literally . . . killers! That was the essence of an accusation made by Eric Boehlert, a guest on Joy Reid's MSNBC show today. Reid quoted to Boehlert from a Washington Post column that suggested that Rupert Murdoch should force Fox News to "tell the truth" about coronavirus, and also use his influence with President Trump on the matter. When Reid asked whether there was a possibility that Murdoch would do such things, Boehlert replied: "Anyone waiting for Rupert Murdoch to do the honorable thing is going to wait...

    On a late January afternoon, as press secretary Sean Spicer walked into the White House media briefing room, a tall, thin, bespectacled man poked his head in the doorway for a moment before turning around and heading back into the West Wing. Later that week, at another briefing, the man stayed longer, standing in the corner behind the podium, out of view of the array of television cameras. The reporters peppering Spicer with questions were unlikely to know it, but the wallflower watching over the proceedings happened to be the leading conservative intellectual to argue for the election of Donald...

    The collapse of the New York Daily News could not happen to a more deserving enterprise. The editors abused their power and debased the public discourse with cover pages that increasingly ridiculed the President of the United States, finally depicting the leader of the free world as a pile of poo poo. I get that they had the right to do that. I vehemently argue against what they did, and now having bored their sugar daddy billionaire, the editors find themselves adrift and unemployed under new owners who will not subsidize their infantile behavior. Staffs at other papers are rallying...

    The supposedly conservative Times of London (owned by Rupert Murdoch) has published a rather long article about the Stormy Daniels controversy. Although you'd expect a conservative newspaper to be critical of both Donald Trump and the (former) porn actress, nothing could be further from the truth. The Times clearly has a favorite in this match. And it's not the U.S. president. In the article, one Daniels-admirer after another is quoted. We are told that she's extremely intelligent, clever, and smart. Feisty. She has as thick a skin as anyone. Oh yeah, Stormy Daniels is one tough lady. '“She is basically...
