Miami Herald Columnist Claims Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio Not Really Cuban

March 11th, 2016 5:10 PM
Since this is a presidential election year, it's not surprising to find harsh comments and angry rhetoric regarding candidates running to occupy the White House next January. However, Fabiola Santiago -- a columnist for the Miami Herald -- set a new low in an editorial that was published on Friday entitled “Ted Cruz & Marco Rubio aren’t the Cuban dream team.”

Dave Barry on CNN: Trump's On TV 'More Than the GEICO Gecko'

March 9th, 2016 5:01 PM
Humorist Dave Barry hammered the media on Wednesday's New Day for their "daily obsession with Donald Trump: "We keep asking why he's doing so well — and he's on TV all the time. He's on more than the GEICO gecko." When CNN's Alisyn Camerota defended the press coverage of Trump by using his front-runner status, Barry countered that "you can't deny the incredible impact...at this point, Kim…

Ignorant Miami Sportswriter Criticizes 'Anti-Government' Crowd

August 30th, 2015 11:47 PM
Miami Herald sportwriter and columnist Greg Cote, whose career has entered or is about to enter its third decade, seems to have incorporated a sideline into his work: glib, ignorant political commentary. One such example surfaced at the end of his August 25 Random Evidence blog post. Apparently, Cote believes that anyone who has ever received any kind of government benefit or has made use of a…

Miami Herald Columnist: Saying 'All Lives Matter' Is 'Moral Cowardice'

August 24th, 2015 11:38 PM
Columnist Leonard Pitts may not have caught wind of Thursday's Rasmussen poll before he wrote the column published Saturday at the Miami Herald. Perhaps he still doesn't realize that Rasmussen reported that 64 percent of blacks and 78 percent of likely U.S. voters overall say that "All lives matter" is closer to their own views than "Black lives matter." In his column, Pitts accused what turns…

Joy Reid's Complete Lack of Liberal Self-Awareness on Obama Worship

October 17th, 2013 11:32 AM
This is a bit dated, but the Chris Matthews question is quite relevant. Last Friday on Hardball, Matthews asked Joy Reid: "Who's the Democrats' Ted Cruz?" Reid's answer is extremely amusing, considering Reid was on the ground floor of the Obamessiah campaign, with Obamagasms like Time magazine claiming Obama was "born in the imagination, out of scraps of history and hope." Reid said the…

September 12th, 2013 12:11 PM
Let’s look at the way the print media reacted to Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis after their first six months as pontiff.   We looked at the editorials in 15 of the nation’s largest newspapers to see what they said about the current pope, and his predecessor, after their first six months in office (Pope Francis will celebrate his first six months on September 13).

Not Yet National News: Fla. Dem Congressman's Chief of Staff Resigns A

June 2nd, 2013 2:54 PM
This has to be an imaginary story, right? Most Democrats and others on the left continue to insist that voter fraud is not a problem, even in the face of examples like Minnesota U.S. Senator Al Franken, whose 312-vote "victory" margin in 2008 may have entirely consisted (and then some) of illegal votes by felons in just one county. More recently, it seems that the claim is under revision. A…

How Low Can You Go? Liberal Columnist Assigns Some Blame to Conservati

November 19th, 2012 11:49 AM
It's rare that we take on liberal newspaper columnists. They're entitled to their opinions and no one expects them to adhere to a standard of objectivity. But on those occasions when a columnist transgresses the bounds of decency, we have to take note. The Miami Herald's Leonard Pitts Jr. is one such opinion writer. In his November 17 column he argued some of the blame for a suicide in Key…

NBC’s Brian Williams Demeans The Title of Network Anchor

August 17th, 2012 11:57 AM
Remember the days when nightly news anchors were supposed to be serious journalists?  Apparently Brian Williams never got that memo.  Appearing on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on August 15, the managing editor of NBC Nightly News showed the continuing decline of the gravitas of the broadcast news anchor.  Appearing on The Daily Show, Williams continued his routine of making awkward and…

Miami Herald's Caputo on Voter 'Purge': There's 'Less Evidence of Supp

June 12th, 2012 12:50 PM
While the national liberal media, particularly MSNBC, have been eager to portray Florida's efforts to remove noncitizens from its voter rolls as a "purge" that is really motivated by partisan attempts at "voter suppression," the Miami Herald reporter who's been covering the story as it develops seems to see it quite differently than his colleagues. In his June 12 story, Marc Caputo notes (…

MSNBC's Mitchell Unwittingly Contradicts Herself in Attempt to Bash Fl

June 5th, 2012 3:29 PM
Florida is a "state where a small number of ballots can swing a presidential race," MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell noted on her eponymous program this afternoon as she introduced Miami Herald's Marc Caputo to discuss Florida's attempt to "purge" its voter rolls of noncitizens. But while Caputo noted that some 13 noncitizens -- who are of course ineligible to vote -- have been found and eliminated…

NPR Uncritically Acts As Stenographer to Florida Democrats' Complaints

May 31st, 2012 3:00 PM
NPR's Greg Allen has dutifully joined others in the liberal media in presenting the liberal Democratic spin on Florida's efforts to remove noncitizens from its voter rolls as a heavy-handed "purge." As I noted yesterday, the so-called "purge" has amounted to just 0.02 percent of the state's voters being called to address discrepancies in their voter registration that suggest they are…
