Jumping the Shark with Michael Cohen

Michael Cohen testified in Congress Wednesday. And boy was it rough. Cohen prostrated himself in front of the House Oversight Committee and begged for forgiveness from the Democrats and the media. He even put on that special look—the look that a teenage boy puts on when he gets caught doing something wrong—to go along with […]

While National Media Carried Water for Jussie Smollett, Local Media Did It Right

CHICAGO—The first thing that caused newsman Rafer Weigel to blink when reading the TMZ report on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett being brutally attacked by Trump-supporting, noose-wielding, racial-slurring assailants was the neighborhood in which the attack was reported to have happened. The Streeterville neighborhood is not exactly “MAGA country” at any time, let alone 2 a.m. […]

Media Prove They Don’t Care About Violence Against Trump Supporters

Whenever I open my mouth about the outrageous bias of our national news media, liberal journalists always seem to jump at the opportunity to prove me right. When I went on “Fox and Friends” Monday to talk about the Jussie Smollett hoax, for instance, I pointed out how ridiculous it was for the actor to […]

An American Epidemic: Toxic Imbecility

I’m a doctor. Fine, I’m a doctor of laws not of medicine. But I can scroll Web, M.D. as well as anyone, so believe you me—forget all the other scourges ravaging our free republic, even if (nay, especially if) they are afflicting you. Those scourges are mere distractions from the root cause of our impending […]

How President Trump Broke the Left

Whatever happens in the years to come, American politics can never return to what they were before November 8, 2016. Why, you ask? Because a brash TV celebrity businessman from Queens broke the media, broke Washington D.C., and broke the self-appointed “elite” on both coasts. The stake he drove through their hearts will endure no matter […]

A Clusterf%$# of American Proportions

We Americans like big things. The Big Mac, the big car, the big house. For their part, American leaders tend to love big foreign policy disasters. The term “blowback” was invented during the Cold War to define American foreign policy blunders (or, “flaps” as the intelligence services used to call mistakes back in the day) […]

Look Upon the Media’s ‘Life of the Mind’

Every word she writes is a lie,” Mary McCarthy once said of Lillian Hellman, “including ‘and’ and ‘the.’” This wisecrack got her sued by the Communist author and screenwriter—the suit was dropped after Hellman’s death in 1984—but the bon mot has always seemed to me especially apt when considering the propagandists of the Left. Back […]

The Rise of People Who Actually Say Things

Over the past two weeks, Senators Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) have both announced they will run for president in 2020. These announcements and the media’s reaction to them were as predictable as the well written but vapid speeches and well produced but fluffy videos that accompanied them. We knew that Harris and […]

The Sun Also Pounces

Like an ex-journalist and current lush from Pamplona who thinks no one knows he’s loaded because he guzzles vodka—we’ll call him Ernie—the legacy media is oblivious to how poorly their hollow claims to objectivity mask the stench of their bias. But if there was any doubt about the origins of the odor, venerable Fox News […]

But, Seriously . . . Learn to Code

This has been a week of massive layoffs at the online magazines of our era, Huffington Post and BuzzFeed. Having evolved from mere opinion journals, many of their news desks are being removed, perhaps 1,000 of their employees have been pink-slipped, and a flood of self-pitying tweets, which include a combination of calls for sympathy, […]
