“Media carries with it a credibility that is totally undeserved”

by Steve MacDonald November 21, 2016

From the late Michael Chrichton Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray’s case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, […]

“so there must be more racists and sexists than we believed.”

by Steve MacDonald November 14, 2016

Care of, Conrad Black – National Post The most powerful mea culpa from the media was from Will Rahn of CBS. He blogged on Thursday against “the unbearable smugness” of the media, including himself: “We were all tacitly or explicitly #With Her.… Had Hillary Clinton won, there’d be a winking ‘we did it’ feeling in […]

Bernie Supporters Got Screwed. We’re Next.

by Steve MacDonald October 21, 2016

The Democrat Party, the Hillary Campaign, and the Media stole the Democrat nomination away from Bernie Sanders. They robbed him and his supporters of the opportunity to represent the party. The Podesta emails alongside emails from the Democrat party and Hillary herself confirm this. And they didn’t just steal the election, they insulted Sanders and his […]

They are, with few exceptions, the propaganda arm of the Democrat party.

Notable Quote – Bob Higgs

by Skip October 10, 2016

Q: What is the chief political function of the news media in the USA? A: To divert the public’s attention from what is important to what is trivial and thereby to ensure that fundamentals receive little or no discussion and hence play no role in political competition. -Bob Higgs, (H/T: Cafe Hayek) From personal experience, […]

“Politics Has Ruined Everything Fun”

by Skip October 4, 2016

This post by Peggy Ryan over at American Thinker pretty much has the right of it – the Progressives, with their constant shoving of politics into everything, are basically ruining everything.  They can’t just leave well enough alone and have to constantly be screeching at us from their positions.  You name it but there’s hardly […]

Mike Rowe Dissects Media Narrative Bias Toward Trump Voters

by Steve MacDonald August 25, 2016
Thumbnail image for Mike Rowe Dissects Media Narrative Bias Toward Trump Voters

There is a media narrative about uneducated white men supporting Trump. Mike Rowe, when asked, was happy to talk us through it. Let’s assume that Donald Trump is indeed popular among white men who didn’t graduate from college. The first question is, so what? Is this information newsworthy? Obviously, thousands of journalists think it is. […]

Blog Observation of the Day

by Skip August 16, 2016

The media are in the midst of the most one-sided reporting and analysis I’ve ever seen in a presidential campaign. And Trump keeps giving them ammunition. Well given that the vast majority of newsroom are registered Democrats and their political donations are about nil for Republicans, is there any reason why we shouldn’t think that […]

What a great learning experience!

by Ed Naile August 10, 2016

The news media, spurred by their handlers in the Democrat Party machine, have a twofer. They have an opportunity to attack Trump AND the NRA at once with the manufactured story about Trump and gun violence. The only thing better than linking the NRA, a non-existent threat against Hillary, and Trump would be another chance […]

Post-show: How else do you think the Media has earned the moniker of “Democrats with bylines”?

by Skip August 2, 2016

That last phrase courtesy of Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.  We talked briefly about this state of affairs of the so-called “Press” and their utter contempt towards Republicans and then, Conservatives and Libertarians (Do NOT confuse the latter two groups with the first – I posit that fewer and fewer Republicans are Conservatives (even as they all call […]

Another Blatant Display of Bias by The Left-Wing Media – Exposed!

The media is spending more time doing a forensic analysis of Melania's speech than the FBI spent on Hillary's emails. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 20, 2016 Not a perfect comparison. I think the FBI did an extensive investigation but were told to put all in boxes and walk away. But regardless of what the […]

Reality Check on Trump v. Hillary

Thumbnail image for Reality Check on Trump v. Hillary

No one has an official nomination but for our purposes, the field is set. We got Trump and Clinton. For the sake of argument let’s pander to all the haters and assume that both of them intend to run roughshod over the constitution. Just play along, please. In our Constitutional Republic, the power granted the […]

This is just a piece but it gives you the flavor of what the next five months will be like, and I’m just not talking about Trump “running” for President. I refer to the beating the press is going to get before the eyes of an American public that has a truly inadequate sense of […]

The Pantsuitress (That could be a Hillary Clinton super-villain name) lied again last Saturday. She stated that Donald Trump’s words about Muslims are being used by ISIS to recruit. It is not true and even Politifact has had to admit as much. But is that the story? Is another Hillary lie news or is the story how her […]

News Clowns Try Same Trick – Not Funny

by Ed Naile November 7, 2015

As they have been doing since I was reading Jack Anderson as a teenager, the Extreme Media have targeted a conservative for destruction. This time it is Dr. Ben Carson. But this time is different. This conservative Republican candidate is standing up on his hind legs and fighting back. And the Extreme Media is losing. It […]

Obama’s attraction to Ahmed “the suspended,” makes a good deal more sense now. Ahmed lied about his accomplishment. Anthony | artvoice.com I found the highest resolution photograph of the clock I could. Instantly, I was disappointed. Somewhere in all of this – there has indeed been a hoax. Ahmed Mohamed didn’t invent his own alarm clock. […]

Thumbnail image for Are The Oceans Getting More Acidic?

No more or less than usual. Recent journal articles and media headlines have used “more” or “increasing” with “acid” as a root for a supposed lowering of the average pH of the oceans from 8.2 to 8.1. I say, “supposed,” because Sverdrup et al. (1963) state, “The pH encountered in the sea is between about […]

Notable Quote – Howie Carr

by Skip September 11, 2015

The mainstream media goes crazy about Trump’s latest remark, tasteless as it was, and most of the voters immediately remember the absolute lack of outrage whenever a Democrat says something as bad, or worse. – Howie Carr (reporter, syndicated columnist, author, and Radio Hall of Fame talk show host).   Dunno if “most of the […]

From (my hero) Mark Steyn McCain was projecting with respect to poor old Pete Domenici. Forty years ago, John McCain was a war hero. Since then he’s mostly been an a**hole. The problem is you can’t out-a**hole Donald Trump. McCain is in the Superbowl of a**holery and hopelessly outmatched. He was doing a**holery-as-usual last week, […]

Let’s play a little guessing game!

The portion of the law he violated is in the Criminal Code RSA 666.6 so it will be hard to pretend […]
