carly fiorina whoopi the view november 2015

Back in October, the ladies of “The View” decided to take out their political frustrations on Carly Fiorina’s…appearance.

The height of discourse, this show is not.

At any rate, their comments ignited a firestorm of intense politicking that culminated with a second appearance for Fiorina—and a panel in high dudgeon. Whoopi Goldberg kicked...

Back in October, I covered a Gallup poll that showed the majority of Americans don’t support a handgun ban. At the time, only 27% of Americans said they would support such a ban. Two studies covered by Legal Insurrection later that month revealed that the Obama Administration’s renewed push for stricter...

Morning Joe on Media Bias

October’s CNBC-hosted Republican debate threw into full relief the bias inherent in the mainstream media’s handling of electoral politics. In the wake of the broadcast, both the MSM and RNC leadership fielded comments and accusations from candidates (and conservative bloggers…) rendered beyond frustrated at the CNBC moderators’ questions, tone, and...

CNBC Debate Moderators side view

The GOP has a long history of subjecting its candidates to abuse by debate moderators.

From George Stephanopolous to Candy Crowley, debates are a time for network journalists to earn their battle badges by damaging Republicans.

And the GOP just sucks it up and takes it.

We have seen various levels of incitement in recent weeks, frequently involving false claims of Israeli murder of Palestinians.

Palestinian knife-attackers who are shot dead frequently are portrayed as the victim.

The most infamous example of such incitement was when Mahmoud Abbas claimed in a televised speech that a 13-year old Arab boy...

There is a standard fixture at anti-Israel BDS rallies and events — a map purporting to show loss of Palestinian land to Israel.

But it’s a completely misleading and false map.

Yet MSNBC used it on air today — a demonstration of how Big Lies become truth when repeated often enough:

Palestinian dressed as member of press stabs soldier

In the recent spate of knifings, firebombings and rock attacks, the international press has done a masterful job of portraying the Palestinian attackers as the victims through misleading headlines.

This is consistent with the international media bias seen during the 2014 Gaza conflict.

The international press plays a critical role in instigating attacks...
