In a sense it was doomed from the start because it began when its media group—al Jazeera Media Group...

So who’s using whom?

Rush Limbaugh says that Trump has the media frustrated and wrapped around his little finger:

…[T]hey can’t take him out. They can’t stop covering him. They can’t humiliate him. They can’t embarrass him. They can’t diminish his support. They’re powerless, and this has them in a panic. The media...

CBS on NYT gun editorial

In a front page editorial, something that hasn’t been done in 95 years, the New York Times is calling for the confiscation of certain kinds of guns and ammunition.

The piece makes no distinction for the motives behind recent shootings. It also ignores the fact that gun violence is declining.

This month’s attacks in Paris, France killed 130 innocent people and left hundreds more battered, bruised, and reawakened to the danger of radical Islamic terrorism in the west. Political leaders and presidential candidates are speaking out, and everyone’s megaphone is pointed straight at Syria and the heart of ISIS.

During the first Republican presidential debate earlier this month, all hell broke loose after an exchange on the “war on women” between debate moderator Megyn Kelly and contender Donald Trump. The furor over Kelly’s snark, and Trump’s audacity, boiled over into a weeks-long debate between those convinced that Kelly had wrongfully...

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