In case you missed it, I went off on a bit of a rant about comedy in the age of Obama at my site American Glob this week.

Frankly, I’m sick to death of the left’s inability to find anything funny about Obama while continuing to target the same tired subjects of...

I hate when people refer to a column as “important,” because the reality is that few columns are important in the real world.

Slowly, we have seen numerous accounts of how Hamas intimidated foreign journalists into not covering Hamas’ use of facilities such as Shifa Hospital and firing of rockets close to hospitals, apartment buildings, religious compounds and U.N. facilities.

Hamas Spokeswoman Intimidate Reporters Gaza

Israel and its supporters have argued for some time that the news media give a skewed view of Operation Protective Edge because reporters in Gaza are intimidated by Hamas.
