Sometimes called Aggressive Stupidity by me by baldilocks It would be overly optimistic to expect even a small portion of the staff of the New York Times to be Catholic or Protestant. However, it's even too much to expect any of them to be religiously literate. This happened in the aftermath of the Notre Dame … Continue reading Invincible Ignorance from the NYT … Again
With its myopic view of flyover country, The New York Times has designated Wyoming as one of its 52 places to visit in 2019. The reason: In 1869, the Territory of Wyoming passed the first law in the United States giving women the right to vote. The state should be applauded for its acknowledgment of … Continue reading The Times and Flyover Country
While I was busy watching the Red Sox close out the Braves with TWO of the most impressive comebacks I've ever seen in one game (and watched Drew Pomeranz likely pitch himself off the playoff roster) and driving to Irondale to conduct an interview at EWTN word leads out that the so-called Resistance isn't just trying … Continue reading Imagine how Successful President Trump would be WITHOUT a Saboteur Within
The embattled reporter at The New York Times who had an intimate relationship with a top Senate staffer was one of my students. After a quick rise through the ranks of journalism, Ali Watkins was demoted last week for having the affair. I didn’t know her well, but she struck me as energetic and intelligent, … Continue reading Sex and Journalism
By John Ruberry A major story broke last week, and while the mainstream media dutifully reported on it, there was no blanket coverage, unlike in the case of the guilty plea of Trump campaign hanger-on, George Papadopolous, one of the big catches of Robert Mueller's Russian collusion probe. What was that big breaking news? Recently-retired … Continue reading Little Red Riding Hood meets the Big Bad Wolfe in the swamp
While it was very nice of Retired Justice John Paul Stevens to give this in-kind contribution to the efforts of the GOP to keep the house, the fact that one of the leading Jurists in the nation choose to write a piece so divorced from reality demands a proper fisking and I'm just the Sicilian … Continue reading Fisking John Paul Stevens NYT Repeal the 2nd Amendment Piece
This video revealing deliberate bias at the NYT is likely the least shocking thing I've ever seen But that being said the timing here is perfect. Right now the left is reeling from their silence over the Weinstein business, it will be a lot of fun asking those same people if they knew the Times … Continue reading Project Veritas NYT video The Ultimate Dog Bits Man Story
One of the things about the MSM is they have professional editors with years of experience in the News Business. Because of this we are often told that this gives them the edge in promoting newsworthy stories that the public needs to know. Now I'll concede that I'm just a poor blogger with a few … Continue reading “ISIS Fighters Surrender En Masse” Not Newsworthy in Trump Era
It was a real shock to see this story at the NYT titled Cuban Doctors Revolt: "You get tried of being a slave" Thousands of Cuban doctors work abroad under contracts with the Cuban authorities. Countries like Brazil pay the island’s Communist government millions of dollars every month to provide the medical services, effectively making … Continue reading The Comments on this NYT Story on Cuban Doctors Revolting over Slave Wages Are Priceless
Remember the series of wistful articles the New York Times ran in 2008 to mark the 75th anniversary of the birth of Adolf Hitler's Thousand Year Reich? Me neither -- because, of course, it never happened. But that's not as crazy as it sounds considering the Times is running a series of stories under the … Continue reading Red Century story makes me see red
by baldilocks For the second part of this series, consider the uproar surrounding Dana Loesch’s NRA-produced video challenge to the New York Times, where she says this: "We the people" have had it. We've had it with your narratives, your propaganda, your fake news. We've had it with your constant protection of your democrat overlords, … Continue reading Social Media Storm Chasing, Part Two
Not surprisingly, the media failed to report a recent analysis of the lies told ABOUT Trump as chronicled by snopes.com, which is considered one of the most reliable sources of fact checking news and information. The article's title says it all, "The Lies of Donald Trump’s Critics, and How They Shape His Many Personas." Snopes.com … Continue reading Who’s Really Lying?
It’s difficult to determine which one of the columnists for DaTimes writes the most absurd claptrap. Charlie Blowhard? Paul, Nick, Frank? Tommy Friedman just moved to the top of my list when he calls Donald Trump a “Chinese agent” in a recent column. Here’s Tommy’s “proof”: No. 1: Trump ended U.S. support for the Trans-Pacific … Continue reading Tommy and Trump
Jeffrey Medford, a small-business owner in South Carolina, voted reluctantly for Donald Trump. Medford should be a natural ally for liberals trying to convince the country that Trump was a bad choice. But it is not working out that way. Every time Medford dips into the political debate — either with strangers on Facebook or … Continue reading Are Liberals Helping Trump?
The New York Times asked me for my opinion about their news coverage, so I gave it to them with both barrels. As a subscriber to the digital edition of The Times, I became one of the “lucky” candidates to spend more than an hour answering dozens of questions about the newspaper and myriad other … Continue reading Me and The New York Times
