Sat, 21 Jan 2017 04:08:13 +0000

On Tuesday, Kyle Pope, Editor in Chief and Publisher of the Columbia Journalism Review, posted “An open letter to Trump from the US press corps.” Pope informed Mr. Trump, as if the man who is now this nation’s 45th President didn’t know already, that “while you have every right to decide your ground rules for [...]



Today’s Inauguration

Sat, 21 Jan 2017 01:19:26 +0000

I have an unfortunate and somewhat unique perspective on events today, as I had to miss them due to involvement with final services in very trying and tragic circumstances. So I had no contact with any news from about four hours before Donald Trump’s inauguration until about 2:30 in the afternoon. So what led NBC [...]

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 23:39:05 +0000

An attempt by the Associated Press to smear Tom Price, nominated by Donald Trump as the next HHS Secretary, began Wednesday after the opening round of a Senate committee hearing.

AP Continues to Mislead on Lewis’s and Dems’ Inaugural Boycott History

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 16:58:08 +0000

Apparently, those employed as political reporters at the Associated Press never have to acknowledge the existence of their errors, let alone say they’re sorry. They’re also free to make major changes and corrections to the text of previously-filed reports without disclosing what they did to readers. The AP’s reporting on the fight John Lewis picked [...]



Boy, It’s a Good Thing Real Wage Growth Is Finally Strong … Oh Wait

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 14:02:11 +0000

No, it’s not: The red boxes show how much average hourly and weekly earnings increased in 1982-1984 dollars. The fact that this measurement doesn’t have a more recent benchmark is annoying. If it did, it would have told us that real average hourly earnings increased by about 21 cents last year, and that real average [...]

Positivity: ‘I’m Done!’ Why Did This Planned Parenthood Abortion Facility Manager Quit?

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 10:55:37 +0000

This two year-old story has additional significance because of a recent release of evidence by LiveAction.org that Planned Parenthood has done nothing to respond to video evidence that it is willing to perform abortions on underage girls involved in sex trafficking without contacting local authorities (video trailer at link): February 17, 2015 Since the Supreme [...]



LAT’s Portrayal of Trump Adviser Stephen Miller Gives Away the Left’s Education Agenda

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 02:20:44 +0000

Lisa Mascaro’s Tuesday morning portrayal of President-elect Donald Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller at the Los Angeles Times has more instances of leftist bias than one can hope to compile in a post of acceptable length. But what’s really special about it, perhaps inadvertently so, is that one of the reporter’s quoted subjects openly gave away [...]
