The New York Times’s Anonymous Sources Are Dead Wrong [Updated]

Featured image My favorite section of the New York Times is the corrections column. Some of the paper’s errors expose a remarkable ignorance among reporters and editors about history, mathematics, science, literature and so on. This one is a little different. It illustrates how wildly off-base anonymously sourced “insider” journalism can be. The original Times story was about the sanctions that were imposed on ZTE, the Chinese telecommunications company: When the Chinese »

The New York Times — enemy of white people

Featured image Steve has written about how the New York Times hired Sarah Jeong to be part of its editorial board, even though it knew Jeong has written a series of vicious, foul-mouthed attacks on white people, collectively. The Times excuses Jeong ravings on the theory that she was merely “imitating the rhetoric of her harassers” on the internet. Rubbish. As John Sexton counters: First, the tweets aren’t all replying to other »

Open Bigotry at the New York Times [Update]

Featured image The New York Times editorial page has taken a lot of heat for hiring a handful of conservatives as staff (such as Bari Weiss, though she denies she’s actually a conservative) and as columnists, such as Bret Stephens. Well today they’ve done penance for the left with the newest hire: Sarah Jeong. Here’s her background: Born in South Korea, Sarah grew up in North Carolina and California. She’s both a »

What a Rush!

Featured image Scott and Paul noted earlier the 30th anniversary of the debut of Rush Limbaugh’s national radio show 30 years ago today, and I would have added to their thread if I hadn’t been in the throes of a supposed vacation and not paying attention. (Being a workaholic, it’s a working vacation of course.) Anyway, I’ve got the drop on most everyone, because I was listening to Rush before he became »

Someone Could Get Hurt

Featured image Reaction to President Trump’s rally in Florida last night continues to reverberate. Some time before the event got underway, CNN’s Jim Acosta, who has made a career out of being a Resister, was reporting from a visible position in the hall when he was heckled by Trump supporters who chanted, among other things, “CNN sucks” and “fake news.” Acosta tweeted this video along with an expression of concern about possible »

The AP’s War on Donald Trump, Voter ID Edition

Featured image Tonight President Trump addressed a raucous rally in Florida. His speech featured a call for voter ID, a popular issue with most Americans but one the Democratic Party press opposes, since pretty much all voter fraud favors the Democrats. The Associated Press, perhaps Trump’s most bitter enemy other than CNN and MSNBC, headlined just one “fact” about Trump’s speech: “Trump at rally makes false claim on photo IDs for groceries.” »

New York Times Whines: Stop Attacking Us!

Featured image On July 20, President Trump met with A.G. Sulzberger, publisher of the New York Times, and James Bennet, the paper’s editorial page editor. News of the meeting became public because the president tweeted about it: Had a very good and interesting meeting at the White House with A.G. Sulzberger, Publisher of the New York Times. Spent much time talking about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by »

On Social Media, Freedom of Speech Is Under Attack [Updated]

Featured image The fact that Facebook and Twitter are the platforms on which political discussion largely takes place, and probably will remain such for the foreseeable future, given the network effects that entrench them, is deeply troubling. Both companies are run by liberals, and free speech is under attack on both platforms. This story in Entertainment Weekly is a chilling reminder of how little regard liberals–even liberal reporters!–have for free speech: Facebook »

New York Times Targets Kavanaugh’s Wife

Featured image I wouldn’t have thought my opinion of the New York Times could get any lower, but it just did. NTK Network reports that the Times, as well as the Associated Press, has requested emails sent or received by Ashley Kavanaugh in her capacity as town manager of Chevy Chase, Maryland: The New York Times and Associated Press both filed requests under the Maryland Public Information Act (PIA) seeking e-mails that »

CNN: The Oppo Research Arm of the Democratic Party

Featured image Everyone knows that CNN is maniacally devoted, 24/7, to trying to destroy the Trump administration. But it doesn’t end there. CNN is all in for the Democratic Party, and is doing its part to help the Dems capture the House in November. See, e.g., the KFile, billed by CNN as “the leading investigation team for the social, mobile generation.” KFile features content by Andrew Kaczynski, pretty much all of which »

The Washington Post’s idea of a “good summer” for socialists

Featured image Here are the first two paragraphs of a front-page Washington Post story by Dave Weigel: It has been a good summer for the Democratic Socialists of America. On June 20, members of the organization’s Metro D.C. chapter confronted Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at a Mexican restaurant downtown, chasing her out and making national news. Let that sink in. Can you imagine the Washington Post saying this about a far-right »

The Associated Press Lies About the FISA Application

Featured image The Associated Press carries on a daily vendetta against the Trump administration, systematically misleading the American people in articles that appear in hundreds or thousands of newspapers. Thus, it is no surprise that the AP’s story on DOJ’s FISA application dump is nothing but Democratic Party spin. The AP’s headline: “Without evidence, Trump claims documents confirm misconduct.” President Donald Trump asserted without evidence Sunday that newly released documents relating to »

About That “Giant Trump Baby Balloon” [Updated]

Featured image Pretty much every American news outlet is gleeful about the “giant Trump baby balloon,” as it is conventionally described, that supposedly is dominating the London landscape while Trump is in England. London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan, gave activists permission to fly the blimp (as it is also referred to), which apparently was needed because it is so “giant.” Photos of the balloon/blimp do make it look large, like this one attributed »

Trump not the first to mock “a thousand points of light”

Featured image The mainstream media and other anti-Trumpers are pretending to be offended by the ridicule President Trump heaped on former president George H.W. Bush’s pet saying/project “a thousand points of light.” At a rally in Montana, Trump riffed: A thousand points of light, what the hell was that? What did that mean? Does anyone know? Has anyone ever figured that one out? And it was put out by a Republican! I »

Times Editorial Board: Let’s Have a Gang War!

Featured image Remember the good old days when the Left pretended to worry about “eliminationist rhetoric”? Now, they don’t even pretend to worry about a Bernie Sanders volunteer trying to murder Republican Congressmen. Yesterday’s New York Times editorial on the judiciary illustrates how far around the bend the Democratic Party has gone: With Republicans controlling the Senate and the judicial filibuster dead, the Democrats’ odds of denying President Trump a second Supreme »

Dan Rather: Still crazy after all these years

Featured image Dan Rather tweeted this about LeBron James’ decision to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers: We know LeBron James has been outspoken about Trump. So it makes sense to head to California, the heartland of the #resistance. The fact that he will be trying to resist the dominance of the Warriors is an added plot twist. It made sense for James to sign with the Lakers because they play in »

“Is it always like this?”

Featured image President Trump hosted the Prime Minister of the Netherlands at the White House Monday. The mainstream media was on hand to embarrass itself. Benny Johnson reports: The Prime Minister of the Netherlands, Mark Rutte, was clearly shook by all the reporters shouting questions. Trump told the PM at the beginning of the meeting that it’s like the “Academy Awards” as all the cameras flashed. After the presser, reporters continued shouting »
