Auditing Our Auditors

The Roman satirist Juvenal, in a famous passage, asked, “Who will watch the watchmen?” That problem of policing the police has troubled Western thinkers from Plato to the American founders.

Unfit Media Prejudged Trump’s Oval Office Speech

Long before Americans tuned in for President Trump’s Oval Office address on border security, liberal journalists already had their attack plan in place.

Up the Populist!

I listened the other day to Tucker Carlson’s populist dirge on what’s ailing America. Then I perused some rejections, critiques, and commendations of it. Then I shrugged. To be charitable, it certainly wasn’t their fault. It’s the fruit of our communication revolution, wherein the head rush from new media’s immediacy renders antiquated the sober digestion […]
