The Silence of the Media Lambs

Written by Debra J. Saunders

Democratic U.S. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar — self-styled feminists who bought every flimsy claim made against now U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — have chosen to stand by Joe Biden in the face of a sexual assault allegation made against him by a former staffer.… Continue Reading

CNN is Proudly Morphing Into Lifetime Movie Network

Written by Peter Heck

I had forgotten the ad until I saw Erick Erickson’s tweet yesterday:

For those who don’t remember, back in 2017 CNN took a swipe at President Trump’s propensity to refer to them as fake news by creating an advertisement of a single apple on screen with a narrator reading this copy:

“This is an apple.

Why Everyone Who Hates Donald Trump Should Become a Political Conservative

… Or At Least Consider the Prospect and Benefits Thereof

Written by Terrell Clemmons

Earlier this month, David Frum spilled his spleen in a lengthy harangue at The Atlantic titled, This Is Trump’s Fault. Against the backdrop of the coronavirus outbreak, the author of the upcoming Trumpocalypse: Restoring American Democracy, spent more than 5,000 words (that would be about a ten-page, single-spaced Word document, by the way) taking the president to task in hyperbolic, over-the-top, no-holds-barred terms.… Continue Reading

Americans’ Goodness Outweighs Pockets of Anti-Christian Bigotry

Written by David Limbaugh

Though some deny it, many harbor a strong hostility toward Christians in our society, especially those who obediently wear their faith on their sleeves.

You know what they find worse than an outspoken evangelical Christian? An outspoken evangelical Christian who’s also an outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump. Talk about a perfect storm of contemptibility!… Continue Reading

A Spectacle of Bigotry: LGBT Objections to Christian Aid in NYC

Written by Peter Heck

In a 2017 USA Today op-ed, journalist Jonathan Merritt, who has distinguished himself by persistently undermining the authority of Scripture while wearing the name of Jesus, fretted over a potential Christian boycott of Disney and its LGBT activism. He wrote:

It risks making Christians look like antiquated bigots, and it reeks of moral hypocrisy.

Jake Tapper and Chuck Todd Prove (Again) Why Media Trust is So Low

Written by Peter Heck

When Gallup released the results of their recent Coronavirus crisis trust poll, I can’t help but think there were several jaws that hit the floor in America’s newsrooms. Having asked the American people whether they approved or disapproved of the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic by a host of various leaders and institutions, there was only one that found more disapproval than approval, on average.… Continue Reading

Once Again, Trump Was Right And The Media Were Wrong

Written by Andrea Widburg

In February, China reported that chloroquine could fight coronavirus, which led to a burst of media optimism. However, when President Donald Trump said he hoped that chloroquine might cure coronavirus, the media instantly turned on the drug. Unsurprisingly, the media were wrong. The lead doctor of the latest study on the drug says chloroquine is so helpful it would be unethical to deny it to control groups.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Carol Davis on Social Media in Politics

Written by David E. Smith

During this period of social distancing and stay-at-home orders, how can conservatives effectively communicate in ways that will affect election outcomes and impact our culture? Carol Davis says social media is a great medium to disseminate these messages.

In her address at the Women Win 2020 conference that was held in Washington, D.C. and sponsored by FreedomWorks, Davis presented tips for making the most of Facebook posts and shares and Twitter tweets and retweets.… Continue Reading

The “Trump is a Dictator” Crowd is Angry Trump…Isn’t Acting Like a Dictator

Written by Peter Heck

It has become nearly impossible to take the New York Times seriously. Even those who appreciate the Times regularly quote it not because of its accuracy or insight, but because it’s taking a caustic (and usually careless) swipe at a president that they hate. That’s not a great look for the country’s “newspaper of record.”

The most recent demonstration of their embarrassing current state of affairs has to be education policy reporter Erica L.Continue Reading

Mining a Crisis for Political Gold

Written by Robert Knight

“You don’t ever want a crisis to go to waste. It’s an opportunity to do things that you would otherwise avoid.”

So said former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who was President Obama’s chief of staff and an astute practitioner of smashmouth politics.

It’s worth remembering this as the Democrats and their media do everything they can to hype the dangers of the Wuhan coronavirus.  … Continue Reading
