The Media Needs More Liberals Like Kirsten Powers

Conservatives should feel pretty fortunate for outlets like FOX News, talk radio, and new media blogs. Without them, there really wouldn’t be any mechanism in this country for combating the overwhelming problem of liberal bias in our news media. While these sources do indeed offer at least a tiny semblance of a counterbalance, the reality…

Republicans Blow It Big Time At Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi Hearing

What’s more frustrating: A national media that purposely relinquishes its journalistic integrity to protect the Obama administration from a political scandal, or a Republican party that gets a prime shot to demand the answers the media failed to, but completely blows the opportunity? For me, it’s the latter. You see, I lost faith a long…

When President Obama was trying to build support for his highly unpopular Obamacare bill back in 2009, one of the selling points he laid on the American public was that the legislation had the backing of medical doctors.

Like 99.9% of the U.S. population, I don’t watch Piers Morgan’s ratings-starved show on CNN.

Imagine that you’re standing outside on the street, in the bitter cold of the night, dressed in your pajamas. In horror, you’re watching your home engulfed in flames. Imagine that the fire fighters have arrived, and with them are all the trucks, hoses, and other equipment required to start attacking the fire. You know a…

On Wednesday, President Obama gave his first press conference in eight months. In between hard-hitting questions about global warming and whether or not the president has spoken to Mitt Romney since election night, one member of the White House press corps actually managed to squeeze in a question about the administration’s public response to the…
