The 'Pro-Truth' Media Back McCabe's Lying

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

When Attorney General Jeff Sessions sacked McCabe, the "voice of truth" media were pleased, right? Well, actually, no. They were so upset by the president's victory-lap tweets that they fast-forwarded past the facts about McCabe's lies. The networks' coverage of Andrew McCabe matches their coverage of everything else in the Trump era. It's not that they look like the Opposition Party. They are the opposition party. Who's telling the truth doesn't matter. Resisting and ruining President Trump is what matters.

Liberals Sure Are Worried About Mike Pence

Jim Treacher, PJ Media

Mike Pence doesn't need my advice, obviously, but I encourage him to keep doing what he's been doing: Nothing. Just stay low-key, Mike. Keep your mouth shut and let everybody else, inside and outside the White House, wear themselves out attacking each other. Stay out of these petty feuds. Be the better man. Run out the clock while guys like HBO's John Oliver stumble around trying to get a "gotcha." Let them make fools of themselves, while you just smile and wave.

The Joy and Necessity of Driving Liberals Nuts

Kurt Schlicter, Townhall

We are blessed with an enemy that refuses to even try to understand us, but do we ever understand them. And that means we know their weaknesses. After all, the establishment has been in our faces all our lives. We can’t not know them because there is no way to avoid them. The media, entertainment, politics – it’s all them all the time, so we know what makes them tick, and where to plant the charges to bring down the whole stinking edifice. It’s just a matter of pushing their buttons.

Chuck Todd, Guardian of Children's Ears?

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Liberal media elites feigning shock at the utterance of curse words in front of The Children is ridiculous. The hypocrisy here is immense — and shameless. It would be nice if NBC and all the other TV networks would air less vulgarity. Then it would be reasonable to grab the smelling salts and call out Trump for his inappropriate language.

Trump vs. Our Perpetually Panicked Press

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Every study of the media's performance reveals the "news" product is hyperbolic, negative and seemingly designed to make the Trump presidency appear perpetually on the verge of collapse. How can any of these journalists be surprised that Trump backers don't trust their narration of the first draft of history as it unfolds?

The media continues to ignore Trump’s presidential leadership

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Here is my current guide to those who want to see Trump succeed but are perplexed by events: Keep your eye on the big picture and begin each day with optimism because betting against him has been a loser. While no president in modern history has faced such media assaults and entrenched opposition, Trump has work horse stamina and warrior determination to succeed. His policies are mostly the right ones and his tax changes and regulatory reforms will spur growth and create opportunities for millions of Americans.

The incredible Trump agenda -- What most Americans don't know about the war the president has waged

Thomas Binion, Fox News

The politicians and pundits of the left would lead you to believe that the administration has been just as distracted and discombobulated by the president’s tweets as they have been. But the scores of principled conservatives President Trump has brought into the executive branch have very much kept their eye on the ball. The conservative agenda is marching forward.

Exploiting Teenager Rage

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Remember these student hecklers when CNN and their colleagues decry how President Donald Trump has single-handedly ruined civil discourse. Trump mocking CNN as "fake news" caused far more media outrage than Hogg calling the NRA "child murderers." It will happen again and again. They are hell-bent on ridding this country of the Second Amendment, one tragedy at a time.

Sorry, But Conservatism Isn’t Dead Just Yet

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

Every time someone tells us that conservatism is in its death throes, conservatism makes a miraculous comeback. Sometimes we see idealistic iteration and sometimes we see a more severe one. Some of us like to think these outbursts are driven by a constitutional idealism embedded in the DNA of American life. But maybe it’s simply the way our pluralistic system organically balances the concerns of two groups. Either way, heralding the demise of the group marginally holding back runaway government is, as always, premature.

Cheaters Prosper on CBS

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

CBS News has a strange way of marking Valentine's Day. On the Sunday after Wednesday's romantic dinners and flowers, "Sunday Morning" linked the day to a deep study of marital infidelity. The story featured two cheating wives who explained their cheating ways without any guilt. CBS insisted we need to "rethink our attitude" toward the sin of adultery.

Desperately Hating Clarence Thomas

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Clarence Thomas has been recognized as a forceful legal mind on the Supreme Court, and he has staunchly argued against liberal barbarism like partial-birth abortion. It's obvious why liberal journalists with no real core principles on sexual harassment wished they had prevented his confirmation, and why Americans would have been denied an impressive justice.

The Media Changed More Votes Than the Russians

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The Mueller indictments don’t reveal anything that Americans didn’t already know, unless they find it mind-blowing to learn that countries spy on and harass each other. The media had run plenty of stories accusing Russians of “information warfare.” But it didn’t run a single story telling Americans that the U.S. government was trafficking in it, spying on one campaign by using smears from the other. The candidate who lost the most votes from disinformation was Trump.

How the MSM and Russian Trolls Are Destroying the Democratic Party

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Lost in a Russia-induced haze, the Democratic Party virtually no longer exists.  They have no ideas, no proposals, nada.  There's nothing but Nancy Pelosi whining about "crumbs" while genuine tax reform is appearing live in people's paychecks. The Democrats can dream about a "wave election," but the only wave that seems to be coming their way is a surfer's wipeout. Nevertheless, CNN et al. bleat on about Russia, Russia, Russia. I have news for Zucker, Tapper, Acosta and company.  No one's interested.

Kill Chic

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

In 2017, the obsessive hatred of Trump led to many obscenities: Madonna told us she dreamed of blowing up the White House, comedian Kathy Griffin posed with a bloody facsimile of Trump’s head, Snoop Dog shot a Trump likeliness in a video, a Shakespearean company ritually stabbed Trump-Caesar every night on stage, Johnny Depp joked, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? … It has been a while, and maybe it is time.” But such kill chic is hardly new — and hardly a result of Trump’s sometimes reckless tweets or undisciplined outbursts.

Liberals Fail, Volume XXXVII

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

It’s been a sad week to be a liberal, again. Nothing seems to be going right for our betters and aspiring masters. America continues to prosper, to their dismay. Their conspiracy theories are turning into borscht. Donald Trump is breaking their collective collectivist spirit. They can’t even manage to effectively blame conservatives for things conservatives didn’t do.

Behar’s Poke at Pence a Reminder of ABC’s Disdain for Conservative Christians

Tony Perkins, CNS News

The whole episode was an embarrassment – not for Mike Pence, whose faith is shared by the majority of Americans, but for ABC, who may have done the administration a favor by reminding viewers of the deep disdain it has for conservative Christians. This is par for the intolerant course in a movement that continues to see Americans who want to live by their faith as backwater people.

Mueller’s Sop to the Slavering Media

David Catron, The American Spectator

When Hillary Clinton began blaming her defeat on the Russians, the media picked up the theme. And, when Robert Mueller was assigned to look into those charges, Watergate began dancing like sugarplums through their heads. But Mueller can indict 13 Russian nationals or 13 ham sandwiches. It means nothing if the President’s supporters go to the polls in November and crush the Democrats. That will protect him from impeachment, and will also have the salubrious effect of driving the media around the bend.

If Sarah Sanders Were to Smack the Press

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

How much would reporters like it if Sanders were to question them as aggressively as they question her? We know the Trump haters erupted when Sanders merely asked reporters to share what they were thankful for alongside their questions as Thanksgiving approached. Imagine if she called them out by name on their own bias and hypocrisy?

Spare Us the ‘Conversation’

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Where does the multiplication of laws end? It can only end in the destruction of a free society in which the final solution to crime is to treat everyone, both the virtuous and the vicious, as a criminal. That is why the breezy word “conversation” in this context gives off such an Orwellian chill. What are we supposed to be chatting about? The transformation of our country into a totalitarian prison-state?

Sickening Celebration of North Korea

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

To American reporters who hate President Trump, a star was born at the Olympics. The summaries of Jong on Twitter alone were enough to make you throw your phone across the room. If our media elite truly revered democracy and loathed totalitarianism, none of this sugar-coated nonsense on North Korean "mastery" would have been uttered or published. Their bitter hatred of the Trump-Pence ticket colors everything they say and write.
