July 21st, 2021 1:07 AM

Masquerading as an attempt to save democracy, Tuesday saw the PR stunt from Texas Democrats further blow up in their faces as not only had the number of infected lawmakers grown to six, but their charade turned into a superspreader event with an infection in the Speaker’s office and cases inside the Biden White House.

January 26th, 2021 8:35 PM

If we’ve learned anything about the news media during the pandemic, it’s that they care more about gawking at people on TV instead of genuine, unvarnished compassion for those suffering (especially business owners). And that notion was quite evident on Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News when, out of one side of their mouth, the network decried states for deciding to reopen. And with the other…
