A post-mortem about the recently concluded P5+1 nuclear talks with Iran in The New York Times made a false equivalence between the two sides.

What if a Republican said this

Double standards are an unfortunate reality of the current media construct. Democratic flubs and gaffes seldom make headlines in mainstream outlets unless the offense is so egregious it can no longer be ignored. Of course their Republican betters aren’t afforded the same white washing.

This past week was a particularly inarticulate week for the...

Liberal Media Election 2014 Leave Obama Alone

Following an epic GOP whoopin’ on Tuesday, the liberal media is in full pout mode. That the country would almost unilaterally reject President Obama’s policies and a statist agenda is incomprehensible to some. There must be some other reason! Those that were kind enough to concede the shellacking tried their best to...
