Oregonian Hypes Bogus Study Claiming Racism, Sexism in Trump Voters
January 14th, 2017 3:15 PM
In a January 5 column at the Oregonian, Douglas Perry promoted a study which claims to support the leftist meme that Donald Trump won the presidential election based on racial bigotry and sexism. It seems likely that the study to which Perry referred will become a frequent reference point for the left, so its fatal flaws need to be addressed. That's especially true because Vox.com founder Ezra…
WATCH: Sharpton Struggles Against Project Veritas Videos, Voter Fraud
October 23rd, 2016 11:32 AM
Tax dodger and riot starter Al Sharpton had a bone to pick with GOP nominee Donald Trump, on his MSNBC Sunday show Politics Nation, for playing coy with accepting the outcome of the election.

NYT Likens Trump to Dictatorships, Hits GOP on Vote Fraud Concern
October 22nd, 2016 9:56 AM
Saturday’s New York Times attacked Republican positions on voting from two angles. Reporter Yamiche Alcindor responded to Donald Trump’s refusal to say he would accept the election results with typical liberal hyperbole, comparing Trump’s comments to actual dictatorships abroad: “For Some Immigrants, Trump’s Warning on Election Results Sounds All Too Familiar.” Reporter Michael Wines took another…
AP Omits Key Info on Group in Indiana Voter Registration Fraud Probe
October 8th, 2016 5:46 PM
Assuming it thinks that orchestrated voter registration fraud and fraudulent voting are legitimate problems, the Associated Press's Friday attempt to explain the developing situation in Indiana on Friday was woefully incomplete.

Stewart Mocks NYT's Coverage of Rubio, Fails to Include Key Items
June 11th, 2015 11:50 PM
If you're Comedy Central's Jon Stewart, you know you have to do the occasional segment going after the establishment press or left-wing groups to maintain appearances.
The James O'Keefe-ACORN saga in 2009 was one such instance. If Stewart hadn't dealt with it, his pretense of being supposedly fair to both left and right would have been blown out of the water. The incredibly petty New York Times…

May 11th, 2015 6:52 PM
Today, Bloomberg TV's Mark Halperin inadequately apologized for his conduct and line of questioning during an April 30 interview of GOP presidential candidate which came off as rude and racist to many who saw it — well, basically because it was.
As Tim Graham at NewsBusters noted on Sunday, and as will be seen in the video following the jump, Halperin engaged in a "prove-you're-a-Cuban" line of…

AP's Tomlinson Hauls Out Tired 'Heavily Edited' Jab at O'Keefe as Stat
February 25th, 2014 11:57 PM
At the Associated Press on Friday, Chris Tomlinson wrote a story of national significance ("State officials investigating Democratic activists") which the wire service appears not to have ever carried at its national site. It is nationally significant because the establishment press, both in print and over the airwaves, has chosen to make the Lone Star State gubernatorial candidacy of Democrat…
