The Mainstream Media Have Made the Conservative Media Prophets

I’ve long thought of conservative-leaning news outlets as being only small counterbalances to the dominant liberal slant that exists in the mainstream media. Fox News is a perfect example. Though the network fares well against its national news competitors on an individual basis, it is merely a lone conservative voice in an industry that is…

It’s Not the Lie… It’s That the Media Suddenly Cares

What exactly constitutes a scandal? I see that question debated on the Internet from time to time, as well as on the news networks. Many people impulsively associate the term with an illegal activity, but the textbook definition of it is actually quite broad and thus fairly subjective: A disgraceful or discreditable action. Thus, what…

The Evolution of ‘Extremism’ in the Era of Obama

One doesn’t have to look all that far to find proof of the gross hypocrisy that has come out of Washington over the past five years. As conservatives like to point out, the words spoken by U.S. Senator Barack Obama and other top Democrats during the Bush era are often diametrically opposed to the things…

Imagine if Sarah Palin Had Said “Buy a Shotgun” Before the Navy Yard Shooting

Last February, as part of a White House push for a ban on semi-automatic rifles in response to the Newtown, Connecticut shooting, Vice President Joe Biden offered some advice to a mother who was concerned about losing the ability to protect her children inside their home. “Buy a shotgun, buy a shotgun,” he told the…

A Break From the Media Hype of Chris Christie vs. Rand Paul

Anytime there’s any sort of infighting within the Republican Party, you can always count on the mainstream media to cover it laboriously. Their reason for doing so is easy to understand. As far as the media is concerned, practically any form of criticism against the Republicans is legitimate and justifiable. But when that criticism comes…

America Hasn’t Shifted Left. It’s Just Become More Adolescent

“I think that you should pay for your own mortgage, birth control, and college loans. I don’t think that because I’m Conservative, I think that because I’m an adult.” I saw that message posted somewhere on the Internet a couple of weeks ago. The phrasing really stuck with me because I believe it correctly captured…

Why Megyn Kelly and Newt Gingrich Will Help Cable News Ratings

Fox News recently announced that America Live host, Megyn Kelly, will be getting her own prime-time show beginning this Fall. For fans like myself, this was great news. I’ve long recognized Kelly as a standout performer on the network, and there’s something almost prideful in watching someone like her rise up through the ranks of…

Which Offenses Are Forgivable in Hollywood?

I miss Mel Gibson. Well, I miss his work in the movies, anyway. Though I thoroughly enjoyed the action heroes he portrayed early in his career, like Mad Max and Lethal Weapon’s Martin Riggs, I’m particularly fond of his work as a director. Braveheart and Apocalypto are two of my favorite films, and The Passion…
