May 12th, 2018 4:00 PM
According to a new Media Research Center study, 90 percent of the President’s coverage in 2018 has been negative. However, that hasn’t stopped journalists about whining about the President limiting press freedom. What happened when Barack Obama actually did that? Nothing.

May 15th, 2013 7:30 AM
When I first heard of limp faux apology by the IRS's Lois Lerner on Friday for her tax-exempt division's harassment of Tea Party and conservative organizations, I thought she had done so on a conference call.
