When the Ends Justify the Meanness

Susan Rice

Those old, angry, white Republican guys are at it again.  They just can’t control their worst instincts.  They see a black face and they go nuts. Now they’re going after U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, not because she went on five Sunday news shows and told a fairy tale about why four Americans were killed in Benghazi, but…

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…

The national polls continue to reveal that the media is no longer trusted by a strong majority of Americans, yet we rarely…

Journalists Who Don’t Even Try to Hide Their Bias

Bias Corrupts

The Washington Times ran an interesting tidbit the other day about those right-down-the-middle objective journalists who covered the second presidential debate at Hofstra University a few nights ago.  This is how the story began: “The room set aside for reporters to watch Tuesday night’s debate erupted into applause after President Obama ridiculed the size of…

Candy Crowley Gets Obama Off the Hook on Benghazi – Blunder or Bias?

crowley

One of the most anticipated topics in this week’s presidential debate was the terrorist attack on our U.S. consulate and murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya. Many analysts were curious how President Obama could possibly defend the way his administration cited phony players and motives in the attack (a spontaneous mob angered by a…
