Barry Farber: CNN's Latest Defamation Of America

Following an anti-American template.   “A typical day in America” was the way the BBC announced the massacre in San Bernardino. When CNN let us in on that, Wolf Blitzer asked Fareed Zakaria how the rest of the world looked upon America. “You’re a world traveler, Fareed,” said Wolf. “What are they saying about us?” Before Fareed said a   ...

Media Seen To Be Biased Against Trump And For Clinton

Forty-seven percent (47%) of Likely U.S. Voters think most reporters are biased against Trump. A new Rasmussen Reports finds that 31% disagree, but 22%      ... MORE

John Nolte: Why CNN Is Dying - The Network Shamlessly Used The Paris Bloodbath To Push For More Gun Control

CNN is collapsing.  After a bit of a resurgence under chief Jeff Zucker, the left-wing cable news network’s ratings are falling back to earth. After a year of trumpeting ratings wins over third-place MSNBC (while still getting beat like a drum by Fox News), there are fewer and fewer of those wins, and not because MSNBC is doing all that much better.    ... MORE

Glenn Greenwald: CNN And The NYT Are Deliberately Obscuring Who Perpetrated The Afghan Hospital Attack

George W. Bush would have no such luck.       Much of the world spent the last 48 hours expressing revulsion at the U.S. airstrike on a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. It was quite clear early on that the perpetrator of the attack was the U.S., and many media outlets and other organizations around the world have been stating this without    ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: A Debatable 'Debate'

An illustration of what's wrong with the media.     The so-called "debates," among too many Republicans to have a debate, are yet another painful sign of how much words and ideas have degenerated in our times. No one expects these televised sound bites and "gotcha" questions to be anything like the historic Lincoln-Douglas debates on the   ... MORE

Cecil Was One Of Us. No, Wait, He Was Just A Lion

by Harry Goslin. The irrational, overly-emotional and childlike reaction to the killing of a lion in Africa is another example of why Americans will be forever in the dark about what’s important in the world and what’s not. It’s these kinds of silly, irrelevant stories that especially gets the lip-quivering left up in arms and unfortunately dominates the    ... MORE

Chriss Street: The Sun Is Engaging In Climate Change Denial

Another problem for Al.  The sun is known to be the main driver of all weather and climate. With 99.86% of the mass in our solar system, the great ball of violent fire in the sky has recently gone quiet in what is likely to be the weakest sunspot cycle in more than a century and actually flatlined in recent days. Weak solar cycles, like the current one,   ... MORE

IBD Editorial: Press Helps Obama Censor The News

It's not often that the press exposes its own bias.     But a Washington Post story this week reveals both the Obama administration's attempts to censor the news and the media's complicity in that effort.

Ed Krayewski: The Role of the Media in the War on Drugs

The strategic air support.     The media's often called the fourth estate. Where's that come from? In the Middle Ages in Europe the first estate was the nobility, the second estate was the clergy, and the third estate was peasants, everyone else. Together the three estates constituted a feudal "realm." The king existed outside the     ... MORE

John Stossel: Important Slow News

On perspective.       Wars, plane crashes, mass murder — it's easy to report news that happens suddenly. Reporters do a good job covering that. But we do a bad job telling you about what's really changing in the world, because we miss the stories that happen slowly. These are usually the more important stories. Recently, President Barack Obama   ... MORE

John Stossel: Omission Control

The American Pravda.        Reporter Sharyl Attkisson's story sounds familiar to me: A major network got tired of her reports criticizing government. She no longer works there.
