Debate Moderator

Why not demand a Rush Limbaugh or a Mark Levin to ask some debate questions at the Democrat debate with Hillary and Bernie. This is the essence of what we are witnessing with the Republican debate. These Democrat operatives get their marching orders from the White House and try to destroy every conservative.

Who’re you going to Trust: The Stock Market or the Media Innumerates?

Years ago, when I used to play poker with some guys, I played a hand in which across the table from me was someone who looked as though he had a straight flush. He kept pumping up the bidding and everyone folded but me. When we finally showed our hands he had nothing. “You don’t […]

Pope Benedict XVI Still Unnerves the Media

True to form, CNN, Reuters, and other media outlets used the announcement of Pope Benedict XVI’s retirement to dwell on ancient sex scandals, opposition to gay marriage, and a host of other things the media have never liked about a Pope who would not hew to whatever worldview the chattering classes embraced at the moment […]

How the Liberal Media Ruined Obama

It’s not an “Incumbent Curse,” as MSNBC would call Obama’s performance at Wednesday’s first presidential debate.  It was not Obama’s fear of coming across as the angry black man, as Michael Eric Dyson surmised, that prevented Obama from driving a strong debate on the issues with Mitt Romney.  And it was not that Mitt Romney […]

Media Madness, and the Reckoning

Last week a line was crossed, and full blown insanity manifested itself in the formerly-mainstream media.  My friend JMH is a model of a temperate media consumer, but watching the coverage of the Republican convention, she could not contain her fury: Something just snapped today, when I read about the race baiters at MSNBC not […]

Has the old media worm turned against Obama?

The answer, in a word, is “No.” The old media worm has not turned against Obama, despite the much-publicized Newsweek cover featuring the president’s photo with the caption, “Hit the road, Barack.” The cover set off a flurry of fireworks from leftist websites.  For example, The Daily Beast logged the outrage coming from several liberal […]

What the Media Won’t Say about Frank Marshall Davis

Salon contributor Eric McHenry will likely be surprised to find himself categorized as “the media,” but his omissions and evasions about Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis so impressively mirror the major media’s that he deserves the honor. What drew my attention to McHenry’s recent article in Salon, “Obama’s Oddest Critic,” is that yours truly is […]

Media Power Defining Santorum

Over the past thirty years, a strange thing has happened on the path to the presidency.  With the advent of the twenty-four-hour news cycle and the proliferation of media outlets, potential presidential nominees can no longer control or establish their image in the minds of the public. This is particularly true of someone whom the […]

Can Michelle Obama’s Media Blitz Erase Her ‘Angry Black Woman’ Image?

While the GOP is preoccupied with selecting a candidate to oppose incumbent Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama is working hard to erase her image as an “angry Black woman” and promote her husband’s re-election campaign along the way. While she is hoping that a series of television appearances will cement the unmarried mom and […]

Are Big Media Covering Up Fast and Furious?

Where was the public outcry for justice when Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry bled to death at the hands of a drug cartel in cahoots with the U.S. government?  It happened in the Peck Canyon corridor northwest of Nogales, Arizona — nowhere.  The general public didn’t hear about it. It’s been one year and two […]
