Remember all the times Obama golfed, traveled to Hawaii, vacationed in Martha’s Vineyard and the liberal media insisted that it was no big deal because an executive can do their job from anywhere?

Dana Milbank

In a recent appearance on MSNBC, the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank suggested an inconsistency between Republican desires to remove Obama from office, and Republican complaints that the Secret Service was not adequately protecting Obama from harm.

Why is that inconsistent? Can’t we both oppose a president and want to protect the President?...

A panel on Melissa Harris-Perry’s MSNBC program discussed the beheading of a woman in Oklahoma by Alton Nolen, a convert to Islam as to whom a picture of Jihadist sympathy is emerging.

Perry insists that this was an act of workplace violence and treats the beheading as a passing detail.

She recently appeared on WMAL radio in Washington, DC to discuss the Fast and Furious scandal and others as well as the media’s refusal to aggressively report these stories.

Chuck Todd on Eric Holder

Upon hearing the news of Eric Holder’s resignation from the Department of Justice yesterday, NBC’s Chuck Todd took to the airwaves and claimed that Holder is a very non-political person.

Media bias is one thing. The utter dismissal of reality is another.

Remember when Katie Zavadski of NY Magazine, Sheera Frenkel of Buzzfeed and Jon Donnison of the BBC reported that Hamas was not behind the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens, Gil-ad Shaer, Naftali Fraenkel and Eyal Yifrach?

That gave rise to the widespread false meme that Israeli...

Long time Palestinian affairs reporter Avi Issacharoff yesterday reported that the plot that led to the kidnapping and killing of Eyal Yifrach, Gil-ad Shaar and Naftali Fraenkel was done with the foreknowledge of Hamas’s leadership. Issacharoff’s report further buttresses Israel’s long held claim that Hamas was responsible for the kidnappings and...

Since a commission appointed by the anti-Israel United...
