The Obama administration’s relationship with the media is hardly and adversarial one. In fact, at times it has seemed more like a partnership and there’s a logical explanation for that. A surprisingly high number of people have moved back and forth from the media to the White House. Glenn Reynolds has often…

We covered the NYU “Dorm Storming” by Students for Justice for Palestine. It’s now received national attention through Greta Van Susteren, who I think did a good job in this interview with Laura Adkins at focusing on the provocative nature of the act. That’s something we’ve focused on. Of course it’s part…

Forget the current polling as between Hillary and Elizabeth Warren. It pits Hillary against someone who “isn’t running.” For all my criticisms of Warren, and they are extensive, I am convinced that if she ran, she would crush Hillary, just as Obama did. Warren, as did Obama, has a unique ability to demagogue…

In the wake of Fatah’s embrace of Hamas earlier this week there has been a very interesting reaction. Actually, the reaction has been interesting because it’s been mostly non-existent. Though the New York Times and Washington Post have reported on Fatah’s betrayal of the American sponsored peace process, neither has published an…
