Daniel Halper of the Weekly Standard has the details:

“Here’s what struck me,” said Susan Page of USA Today, “when I read the...

Last night, a writer at Gawker outed and gay-shamed someone at the behest of an unnamed (for his safety!) source. It was a story steeped in sex, fame, cash, and blackmail, which made it a perfect target for today’s salacious clickbait culture.

Today, Gawker’s managing partners voted 5-1 (with the...

Chuck Todd on MSNBC

It’s probably safe to say that there aren’t many liberals in media who were impressed by Hillary Clinton’s recent interview on CNN.

Chuck Todd of NBC, Maggie Haberman of the New York Times, Mike Barnicle of MSNBC and others had little praise.

A professional campaign operative I know believes optics are extremely important when it comes to political candidates. Therefore, the optics of Hillary Clinton having her staff herd reporters behind a rope during a parade in New Hampshire certainly didn’t look all that great.

I have a late entry for the annual “Egregious 8″ tournament, which pits wasteful government programs against each other.

It turns out that blogging can be fun and profitable…for those websites on the government dole!
