At a time when tensions in the Middle East are rising, it is perhaps a time to once again review President Barack Obama’s qualifications for office. To be sure his qualifications were fabricated, or at least oversold.

This wasn’t just the doing of the Obama campaign. Campaigns are supposed to do present their candidates...

CAMERA – the Committee for Accuracy in Middle-East Reporting in America – has released its Top Ten MidEast Media Mangles for 2015.

There are some doozies, from all the usual sources: The New York Times, BBC, Washington Post, MSNBC, AP, The Guardian and Ha’aretz.  There’s also the perennial phenomenon of media silence...

Protesters have taken over a small federal building in Oregon and some of them are armed. One of them is Ammon Bundy, son of rancher Cliven Bundy who was in the news last year for clashing with federal authorities over land use.

The renewed attention on media bias since the Washington Post cartoon about Ted Cruz’s children reminded me of Kyle Smith’s December 14, 2015, review of Bridge of Lies in Commentary.

Smith writes that Hollywood loves “based on a true story” scripts for their emotional draw and their putative lessons about our society.  But...

Anti-Israel bias in The New York Times isn’t news. But an article this week once again highlights how the Times promotes those who criticize or demonize Israel pretty uncritically, Israeli Veterans’ Criticism of West Bank Occupation Incites Furor.

Ann Telnaes tweet Cruz kids cartoon

Washington Post cartoonist Ann Telnaes drew a cartoon showing Ted Cruz’s children as monkeys dancing to his tune.

The pretext was that the children appeared in a campaign ad. As if this is the first time children have appeared in a political context.

There was a firestorm of controversy, and the cartoon...

The Boycott, Divest & Sanction (“BDS”) movement and the broader campaign to delegitimize Israel has had a tough few weeks.  In academia and industry, the boycott campaign has been exposed as potentially discriminatory and unlawful, and yet another panel of experts has affirmed that Israel’s use of force against Hamas is...

I noted the other night that Donald Trump may have opened the “Overton Window” for Ted Cruz, by making Cruz acceptable to both Republican establishment types and general election voters who otherwise would have considered him Cruz conservative.

I noted the fear of a liberal who wrote:

You may have noticed that the narrative around violent crimes changes depending on who committed the act. When someone with a Muslim sounding name is the suspect, we’re repeatedly told by the media and public officials not to rush to judgement.
