From the man who brought us “fake but accurate” . . . Dan Rather is possibly the living person least entitled to pontificate about the importance of truth in journalism and politics. So naturally, Chris Matthews invited him on this evening’s Hardball to do just that. Hat tip Colleen B.

The New York Times editorial board entitled their traditional post-inaugural address commentary, “What President Trump Doesn’t Get About America.”  What it reveals, however, is quite different.  While one can reasonably expect an op-ed to lean in a particular direction and address policy differences, the editorial board’s main criticism of President Trump’s...

The liberal media is looking for something to console itself. Anything to show that Obama’s election was bigger, better and more important than Trump’s. The latest talking point seems to be that Obama drew a bigger crowd at his inaugurations than Trump.

Mika Brzezinski is an unabashed liberal, someone who pushed Elizabeth Warren to run for president and subsequently became a Bernie Sanders fan. But she has also proved herself willing to criticize her own, be they politicians or, as this morning, fellow members of the MSM.

It’s one fabulously nasty mess both CNN and Buzzfeed created for themselves.

Buzzfeed decided to publish an unsubstantiated dossier full of all kinds of licentious information about president-elect Trump, particularly that he has “deep ties to Russia”. CNN then ran with the Buzzfeed story.

You probably have not heard the names Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.

But I remember those names, and the tears that were brought to my eyes when I heard about what happened to them.

On January 7, 2007, the young white couple—Channon was 21, her boyfriend Chris was 23—was abducted, beaten, raped, tortured, and murdered. ...

What a difference eight years makes. With few exceptions, our national media is confused and depressed about the prospect of President Donald Trump.

Back in 2008 however, the media was downright giddy over the election of Obama. Some journalists even wanted George W. Bush to step aside early so Obama could be...

The Second Coming by William Butler Yeats starts with words (highlighted) I think of very often:

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

As if faith in establishment media wasn’t depleted enough, there seems no end to stories recently exposed as hoaxes. In fact, just about every story where someone was supposedly the victim of pro-Trump hate has turned out to be nothing more than wish casting.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu doesn’t hesitate to take to social media to get his point across, including when the press treats him unfairly.

But if you read the headlines about some comments he made at a press event, you’d think Netanyahu just admitted to “attacking”, “lashing...

There’s been plenty of talk about “fake news” since the election. In fact, some people in politics and media have even suggested that fake news contributed to Hillary Clinton’s stunning loss.

But what about the supposedly legitimate media. Aren’t they to blame as well?
