While riding the Sunday talk show circuit, Hillary Clinton encountered what should’ve been a brutal segment on her long-standing history of philosophical changes.

Team Hillary has a sad because the New York Times published articles that were critical of the embattled former Secretary of State. Clinton’s response? Declare war on the NYT and any other publication that publishes content portraying Mrs. Clinton in a negative light, naturally. Heaven forbid a newspaper do their one...

Earlier today, we shared a story unearthed by The American Mirror that exposed USA Today political reporter Madeleine Behr. Though Behr is covering Scott Walker’s presidential campaign, she signed a petition to recall the Wisconsin Governor in 2011.

The idea seems a bit obvious, but how often is it actually articulated? If it’s not doom, gloom, scandal, or a puppy doing something cute, it doesn’t make the...

A few years ago, liberals in politics and media insisted that rhetoric coming from the Tea Party was violent and that we needed a new tone in political discourse. Now that #BlackLivesMatter activists are openly advocating violence, those folks are nowhere to be found.

The effort by liberal media to delegitimize Clarence Thomas as a powerful legal scholar is not new.

From his confirmation hearings through to the present, Thomas has endured relentless denigration of his intellect in places like The NY Times.

This is the 6th in our look back at the summer 2014 Gaza conflict.
