June 26th, 2020 5:51 AM
Radicalism in America’s largest cities seems impervious to reason. Consider this headline in the Minneapolis Star Tribune: “Despite a wave of violence, Minneapolis 'defund police' effort continues: An influential bloc of City Council members is pressing ahead with plans to dismantle the department as a monthlong eruption of gunfire sent tremors through neighborhoods.” They’…

June 24th, 2019 4:04 PM
Not surprisingly, the major broadcast network newscasts were out to lunch between Sunday morning and Monday morning about not one but three new stories detailing what the Minneapolis Star Tribune stated as “[n]ew investigative documents” that provide “fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to…
Matthews Declines to Ask MN Dem About Her Disturbing Anti-Israel Views
November 28th, 2018 11:54 PM
During yet another national interview, Congresswoman-elect Ilhan Omar (MN) was not asked on Wednesday’s Hardball about old tweets of hers in which she stated what could be mildly described as a disturbing dislike of Israel. As a refresher or for those not acquainted with Omar’s past views, she tweeted this in 2012: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see…
#FakeNews: Media Hyperventilates Over Another Made-Up Hate Crime
December 15th, 2016 12:00 PM
While the media are obsessed with debunking “fake news,” they might take a look at the plank in their own eye. On Tuesday, Politifact, the self-appointed purveyor of debunking “fake news,” has named the “phenomenon” of fake news their “Lie of the Year” and bashed Donald Trump for spreading these so-called false stories: “Fake news found a willing enabler in [President-elect Donald Trump], who at…
No Media Repercussions for Minn. Councilwoman Who 'Doxed' Constituents
December 29th, 2015 5:37 AM
Did you hear the story about the conservative city councilman who was so incensed at his private-citizen critics that he or she published their names and addresses and accused them of racism in the process?
Of course you didn't. If it happened, press coverage of "right-wing intimidation" would be everywhere. Instead, "doxing," the term given to such exposures, is a technique predominantly…
Minn. Star Trib Reporter Bemoans 'Youth Exodus,' Doesn't Mention Taxes
April 20th, 2015 10:54 PM
Minneapolis Star Tribune reporter Jackie Crosby's writeup on how "Minnesota has been losing residents to other states" since 2002, and that it's especially troubling because "young adults are leaving in the greatest numbers," contained an enormous blind spot.
The Gopher State, aka the Land of 10,000 Lakes, is also sardonically known as the Land of 10,000 Taxes by many residents, and with good…
10-1: Biggest U.S. Newspaper Editorials Lambast ‘Bigoted’ RFRA
April 7th, 2015 11:22 AM
One would think the editorial boards of the nations’ top newspapers – journalism’s brightest and best – wouldn't lightly throw around inflammatory language, slurs and insults.
But it appears that an Indiana law protecting the religious freedom of businesses and individuals is so beyond the pale it had the journalistic high-priests at many of America’s top 20 papers sputtering “bigot,” “…
Star Tribune Doesn't Reveal Featured SOTU Mom Was Democrat Operative
January 21st, 2015 5:21 PM
What a sweet story. A local struggling mom writes a letter to the President and she gets not only a lunch meeting with him but later gets featured in his State Of The Union speech. A very touching story about a regular woman...who "coincidentally" was a Democrat operative. However, the Minneapolis Star Tribune very "mysteriouusly" left this very important fact out of the story about her written…
WashPost Highlights Crusade for 'Preferred Gender' High School Sports
October 4th, 2014 4:27 PM
When The Washington Post makes a Minnesota story a national story, they really want to push it. Take Saturday’s front page story, headlined “Transgender athletes struggle to find their playing field.” Under the color photo, the caption explained “Zeam Porter, who is transgender, talks about feeling devastated while playing on the girls basketball team in high school.”
The sensitivity is so great…

Liberal Star Tribune Discovers Vote Fraud in Democrat vs Democrat Prim
July 5th, 2014 10:58 AM
Voter fraud is so rare “you’re more likely to get hit by lightning than find a case of prosecutorial voter fraud,” according to Judith Browne-Dianis, co-director of the liberal Advancement Project.
Apparently lightning has struck very hard in a local primary election according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune whose only real reference to voter fraud in the past two years was to reprint a St.…
Major Newspaper Editorials Ignore or Praise EPA Controls 90 Percent of
June 3rd, 2014 4:19 PM
When the government pushes to destroy America’s biggest source of energy, you can certainly trust the media to jump on board.
On June 1, the Environmental Protection Agency unveiled drastic new limits on carbon emissions, mandating steep emission cuts within 16 years. It’s a move that may cost hundreds of thousands of jobs each year, but only 13 of the 20 major United States newspapers…
Press Outlets All Over Report on Milk Price Increases While Ignoring L
February 19th, 2014 10:37 PM
According to a USA Today item carried at ABC News, "Sixty percent of adults can't drink milk." In July 2012, the New York Times ran an item entitled, "Got Milk? You Don't Need It." But the last time I checked, everyone uses electricity to some extent.
I'm bringing up these points because, as a friend showed me earlier today, the establishment press has run stories galore in the past several…
