They Dish It out but Can’t Take It

Written by L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham

In the midst of the daily tarring and feathering of President Trump by our “objective” press, we are treated to some precious moments where these badly disguised political operatives write something unintentionally hilarious.

Take, for example, The New York Times story on Aug. 25 headlined “Trump’s Allies Scour Internet to Punish Press.” Reporters Ken Vogel and Jeremy Peters ominously warned, “A loose network of conservative operatives allied with the White House is pursuing what they say will be an aggressive operation to discredit news organizations deemed hostile to President Trump by publicizing damaging information about journalists.”

Notice how journalists employ a language of scandal and conspiracy to insist those horrible conservatives are going to publicize damaging information about journalists, as if this is entirely different than their own daily output.… Continue Reading

Cognitive Bias and the Democrats

Written by Walker Wildmon

According to Chegg.com, “a cognitive bias is a mistake in reasoning, evaluating, remembering, or other cognitive process, often occurring as a result of holding onto one’s preferences and beliefs regardless of contrary information.

His dad wrote back: “Too bad. So sad. Your Dad.”

A Crisis When It Suits Their Purpose

Written by Robert Knight

Since the federal shutdown began [four] weeks ago, the liberal media have presented dozens of Chicken Little stories claiming that the sky is falling.

“Three dead in national park system accidents as shutdown wears on,” screamed a six-column headline in the Washington Post on January 5.

“The deaths follow a decision by Trump administration officials to leave the scenic — but sometimes deadly — parks open even as the Interior Department has halted most of its operations,” the article said.… Continue Reading

Conservative Coalition Urges Media to Stop Citing SPLC

Written by Peter LaBarbera

A coalition of 47 conservatives has written a letter appealing to the media to stop citing the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as an authority on “hate,” calling it “an attack dog of the political left” that slanders traditional conservatives as “extremists.”

In the wake of the race protests and riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, CNN and other media and blogs have cited the SPLC’s “hate map” as a guide to locate “hate groups”and “extremists” across the United States.… Continue Reading
