Kathy Griffin: ‘I’m No Longer Sorry’ For Trump Severed Head Photo

August 29th, 2017 3:51 PM
Disgraced comedian Kathy Griffin is trying to make a comeback, after she posed holding the bloody, severed head of our president in a magazine spread, earned her criticism from both the left and right back in May. A few days later Griffin offered a teary apology, that was part remorse, part pity-party and she was quickly shuffled out of the media spotlight. Now Griffin is hoping to capitalize on…

December 8th, 2015 9:23 PM
In what certainly won’t be the latest case of irony in the liberal media, Tuesday’s CBS Evening News immediately pivoted from a full report on surging gun sales in the United States following mass shootings to a piece prominently touting Australia’s massive gun control and confiscation initiatives carried out in the 1990's.

Five Climate-Change Claims as Ridiculous as Sharknado

July 29th, 2014 11:27 AM
“Sharknado 2: The Second One” is poised to take a bite out of Manhattan and devour many of the week’s water-cooler conversations. Like the first “Sharknado” movie, the premise is so ridiculous it actually manages to entertain. In the same way, some media claims about what climate change has already done or threatens to do in the future are so absurd they’re actually laughable. Climate-change…

Al Gore Denounced in Australian Press as Money Hungry 'Ferengi' for Su

June 29th, 2014 9:24 AM
Imagine if in America there were a coal mining magnate as famous as Donald Trump who was the founder of a political party named after himself (Trump United Party?). In addition, this well known person would be strongly opposed to a carbon tax. Obviously such a person would be considered an enemy by environmentalists. Well, think of the shock if none other than Al Gore held a friendly joint…

Bozell Column: Sex and Super Mario

March 5th, 2011 8:00 AM
Most parents think of video games as a child's pursuit, especially the innocent ones. Many people who bought a Nintendo Wii video game system would consider this the most innocent of them all. They watch their children play Super Mario Brothers on it, or join the family in playing tennis or golf or baseball with their little childlike”Mii” characters on Wii Sports. I never imagined this game…

October 24th, 2010 9:36 PM
Not that it justifies the horrible consequences of leaking classifed information, thereby endangering our troops, our allies, our friends, and their families (of course it doesn't), but the WikiLeaked documents being carried at outlets like the New York Times are revealing some truths that are proving quite inconvenient for Iraq war opponents. Earlier today (at NewsBusters; at BizzyBlog), I…

Murdoch: Regulators, Freeloaders Obstacles to Media Future

December 1st, 2009 5:35 PM
Rupert Murdoch sees a future in journalism. With newspaper circulation at post-war lows and major dailies shutting down in a number of cities, he may be one of the few optimists left. But first, Murdoch claims, the American government must change its obsolete and destructive regulatory policies that, he says, are preventing major news outlets from competing."Good journalism is an expensive…
