October 13th, 2017 12:40 PM
Leading off Thursday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, the eponymous FNC host and The Hill’s Joe Concha provided a proverbial beatdown to NBC News for “lying” in their cover-up and reluctance to cover the Harvey Weinstein allegations of sexual misconduct.

Readers who haven't recently ventured into the fever swamp known as the Los Angeles Times may have a hard time fathoming how utterly obsessed what used to the be the West Coast's paper of record has become with the threat to civilization known as Donald Trump.

WashPost: No Pinocchios for Susan Rice's Unmasking Flip-Flop
April 7th, 2017 2:08 PM
So how could the Washington Post Fact Checker, Glenn Kessler, possibly avoid awarding a bunch of Pinocchios on April 6 to Susan Rice for her recent flip-flop on the unmasking of Donald Trump campaign people?

One would hope that the Washington Post, where the news masthead is "Democracy Dies in Darkness," and whose emails soliciting subscriptions tell recipients that "Democracy needs great journalism," searched far and wide for the most credible person they could possibly find to criticize the foreign-policy impact of how the Trump administration "twists the truth." Apparently, the best person they…

Elizabeth Warren has become a heroine of the establishment press and the left — but I repeat myself — after deliberately violating Senate Rule 19 against "imput(ing) to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator" Tuesday evening in criticizing Trump administration Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions.
