Liberal Billionaires Are Never Villains

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Liberal gozillionaires are hailed as Time's "Persons of the Year" (Bill and Melinda Gates) or get a Presidential Medal of Freedom from former President Obama (Buffett). It doesn't hurt that liberal journalists can often thank these billionaires for jobs — or be grateful that their colleagues are employed by them. Buffett, Bloomberg, Zuckerberg and Bezos are all in the left-wing media business now.

Status Quo Blues

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Slowly and by hit and miss, Americans are learning that they do not need to go to a theater to see another Harvey Weinstein movie; or watch network news or read traditional journalism; or, on NFL Sunday, see more zillionaires in their luxury boxes above grow giddy as their employees below score, only to see a showboating player kneel on all fours to mimic a urinating dog, which is apparently less offensive than standing for the national anthem.

Menendez and Murphy: A Tale of Two Transgressors

John Fund, National Review

Anyone who has observed both major parties over the decades knows that each party has its share of fools, knaves, and outright crooks. But we should acknowledge that the foibles of Democrats take a lot longer to go to the center of the media’s radar screen.

Another Tradition Never Trump Conservatives Won’t Conserve

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Take the guns away — that’s as fitting a rallying cry as any for the Never Trump conservatives, whose pompous mutterings about the “conservative movement” concealed a statist elitism that only pretends to oppose the left’s Leviathans but in the end always serves them. Does anyone still wonder why they preferred Hillary to Trump?

With Trump, Tillerson coverage, the media takes us all for 'morons'

Bill O'Reilly, The Hill

It is certainly true that Rex Tillerson or anyone else working for an unpredictable boss could have become frustrated. That's human nature. But a blind allegation is not a fact. The press used to have an obligation to provide facts and fairness. In America, that is no longer the case. The media is taking all of us for morons.

The Inevitable Bias Avalanche in Las Vegas

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Everyone in America mourns these mass shootings. Everyone. But liberals think only they have the compassion and "common sense" to end it. Liberals are furious about this because it demonstrates all their liberal media bias and all their liberal celebrity "consciousness raising" accomplishes nothing.

How Donald Trump Has Disrupted the Media

Peter J. Boyer, The Weekly Standard

The starkly negative tone of the news media’s Trump coverage is perhaps inevitable. If the news media operates on the assumption that Trump is an existential threat to the Republic (and there is much to suggest that it does), a focus on the person, rather than the policy, of the President is going to reinforce that assumption.

Blowback Begins Against NFL #TakeTheKnee

A Denver car dealership founded by military hero Phil Long has pulled ads featuring Broncos player Von Miller who, along with many other members of the team, took a knee during the national anthem before Sunday's loss to Seattle.

Whose Side Are You On, President Trump’s Or The NFL’s?

Rooting for one NFL team to beat another is like rooting for MSNBC to beat CNN – it’s not about sports – it is merely two giant corporations, mired in political correctness, battling to win the ratings game on TV. What do you think? Tell us by clicking this link to take our NFL vs Trump poll.

Virtual Virtue

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

The more prominent persons voice virtual virtue at no cost, the quieter ones know better and make the necessary adjustments that fit what they see and hear and conclude. The result of our two worlds is that the virtual virtue signalers grow ever louder only to reach deaf ears; while the quieter become even more cynical and detached in having to live what increasingly seems a charade.

Truth Suffers in Defense of Antifa

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Journalist apologists for left-wingers look especially odd because the liberal media have protested so harshly against President Trump denouncing journalists for fake news. Antifa thugs have repeatedly beaten or threatened journalists and regular citizens on the street who dare to capture them on tape. Why, then, must they not be "vilified"?

Reminder: The press really wanted Hillary Clinton to be president

Becket Adams, Washington Examiner

If Clinton lost the 2016 election because of negative press coverage, then how did Donald Trump win? He had 15 solid months of bad press. No one – left, center or right – can argue the press went easy on the Queens businessman. If elections were determined by which candidate had the rosier press coverage, then we'd be saying "Madam President" today.

Why Won’t Media Demand Dems Condemn Antifa?

Larry O'Connor, Mediaite

Democrats are loathe to condemn Antifa because, in part, they represent their base. The same anti-capitalist, anti-American thugs who polluted our cities with the “Occupy Wall Street” movement who were praised by Nancy Pelosi and President Obama are now weaponized with the coordinated and violent tactics we see in the Antifa battles waged on a regular basis in those same cities. And Sanders, Warren, Al Franken and other Democrats are counting on them in 2018 and 2020.

Democrats Welcome Chairman Mao To America

Republicans and conservatives must force themselves to recognize that the violence perpetrated in Charlottesville, Philadelphia and Berkeley was just the probing movements of a coming hardcore Leftist revolution that intends through violence and intimidation to destroy constitutional liberty.

Elites to Trump: Stand Still While We Punch You

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Members of the ruling-class commentariat have called Trump a “sociopath,” said that he isn’t “fit to be human,” smeared him as a racist Nazi-coddler, and hurled countless other fanatical insults at him. And they wonder why he talks about them disparagingly at rallies? All of this empty outrage is nothing more than a temper tantrum from a group of hopelessly entitled phonies who can dish it out but can’t take it.

The Clownish Commisars of the Culture

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

One of the arguments against Trump last year from critics ostensibly worried about the “integrity of conservatism” was that he would revert to Manhattanite liberalism. He hasn’t. But they have. They can be heard whining about his ban on cross-dressers and transsexuals in the military, his insufficient enthusiasm for Islamic migrants, and now his defense of Robert E. Lee.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Say Media Trying to Destroy Trump, Nation May Be Heading to Civil War

Conservatives believe that the media’s unrelenting and unfair attacks on President Trump and other conservatives “are pushing America to a civil war” according to a poll by FedUp PAC.

At the Orgy of Self-Righteousness

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The press had grown accustomed to Republican presidents who suffered under what might be called a conservative inferiority complex. Trump, fortunately, isn’t touched by it and is willing to call the self-appointed ruling class on its propaganda and lies. As phony Republicans and conservatives chase after the mob headed for Lee’s statue, there stands Trump like a stonewall.

Media plead ignorance of the 'alt-left'

Eddie Scarry, Washington Examiner

Members of the national media are disputing President Trump's decision to blame the "alt-left" for engaging in acts of violence, and many say there is no such thing even though the term has been used for months. The so-called "alt-right" is a term for a loosely defined nationalist movement. Neither the "alt-right" nor the "alt-left" originated with Trump but people on both sides use both terms.
