In the wake of the Scalise shooting, Fareed Zakaria hosted a segment on his CNN show this morning devoted to addressing how Republicans and Democrats can stop their “internecine struggle” and “reconcile.” Two of the guests bought into the premise, discussing the challenges involved and possible approaches to reconciliation.

But the third guest,...

Yes, let’s all come together, hold hands, unite . . . and blame President Trump for the shooting of Steve Scalise and others yesterday. Morning Joe opened today with predictable pieties, Joe Scarborough saying, for example, that “the heated rhetoric in this country has to calm down.”

In the wake of the Kathy Griffin severed-head fiasco, and the Central Park play depicting the assassination of President Trump, you’d think that pundits might have the good sense to lay off metaphors invoking the violent death of the president.

But today comes law prof Jonathan Turley with yet another sanguinary simile....

The French-German broadcaster ARTE has reportedly shelved a documentary on antisemitism because it doesn’t bash Israel enough. ARTE and WDR, the publicly-funded TV networks that commissioned the 90-minute documentary, have decided to confine the film to the archives, calling it “unbalanced”. “You can’t make a film on antisemitism without saying every...

Video surfaced Sunday showing what appears to be a CNN film crew staging or at the very least, assisting with the optics of an anti-ISIS Muslim protest in London.

Film crews from CNN, BBC, and the AP set up in the middle of the street well before any protest began and before...

Q. Is there anything—anything!—about which the MSM won’t criticize about the Trump administration? A. No, judging by the mind-bogglingly minuscule, absurd and hypocritical thing that Chris Matthews has found to carp about.

On his Hardball show of May 30th, Matthews got bent out of shape over the fact that Jared Kushner...

There was a time during the first quarter of 2017, when the “Anne Frank Center (US)” aka Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, was all over the news for the bashing and thrashing its Executive Director, Steven Goldstein, gave Donald Trump.

Bob Schieffer is an old-school newsman. There’s no doubt that the former Face the Nation host leans left, but he is still capable of reporting, you know, the news. That is too much for denizens of the modern MSM to tolerate.
