July 7th, 2018 6:28 AM
In the liberal mind, the way to prove you value something is by funding it with taxpayer money. So if you love journalism, you take taxpayer money and give it to journalists.

FLASHBACK: CNN Didn’t See GOP Winning in 2009 As Referendum on Obama
November 8th, 2017 3:47 PM
As journalists rejoice over Republican defeats in New Jersey and Virginia, hyping them as a referendum on President Trump, we at the MRC dove into our archives to remind them that just 8 years ago they said the exact opposite when the exact same situation happened to President Obama.
