A few articles this week effectively absolve Hamas (and more generally the Palestinians) for the latest escalation in the Middle East and put the bulk of the blame on Israel. I’m only going to focus on two.

Max Fisher wrote How Israel is punishing ordinary Palestinians for three murdered Israeli students for Vox....

Obama Doctrine

If anyone working in media today wants to help restore some of the damage done to the reputation of their industry, an apology like this would be a great start.

Rather than using their influence to prop up Obama, the editors of the Billings Gazette in Montana are simply admitting they...

Why has the mainstream media been so silent about the scandals in which the Obama administration has become embroiled?

From Roger L. Simon at Pajamas Media:

Obama is beside the point. They [the liberal media] don’t even like Obama anymore. Nothing could be more obvious. Almost nobody does. But they won’t...

Some privileges are permissible topics for discussion on campus and in the media.

For example, White Privilege is the obsession of some faculty and students.

George Will pointed out that there is another privilege on campuses — false or contrived claims of victim status.  Will did not argue that real victims, be it of...

Dana Milbank Washington Post Heritage

The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank, who has an increasing reputation as a shill for the left wing, viciously attacked the Heritage Foundation in a column on Monday evening. The column, “Heritage’s ugly Benghazi panel” characterized the event as though it were a full-throated, Muslim-bashing hate-crime cleverly disguised as a public forum...

As Bryan Jacoutot documented here three months ago, Maryland’s health exchange was a complete failure. In private industry or nearly any other field of endeavor, an employee who is responsible for such a visible failure would be subject to demotion or firing. But this is politics. And this is Maryland.

When Mahmoud Abbas’s “moderate” Fatah movement first reached out to make an agreement with the terrorist Hamas movement, the response in the United State was “mostly nonchalant.”

Now that the two sides have announced the creating of a unity government, the response has continued to be muted. Certainly not outraged.

There’s a growing sense that, at least for now, the Bergdahl/Taliban exchange and its fallout has the left spooked.

In the wake of Tea Party’s initial phases of success and media attention in 2009, progressive counterparts astroturfed their own version: The Coffee Party.

For me, the most troubling aspect of development is that the organizers usurped the beverage that powers my Tea Party activities.

But, I digress.
