April 10th, 2020 1:01 PM
Law & Crime had a peculiar story late Thursday afternoon in the never-ending efforts to destroy Fox News.

November 16th, 2019 11:41 AM
On Thursday morning, FNC's Fox and Friends gave attention to liberal efforts to restrict gun sales in Tacoma, Washington, by charging people a tax for gun sales, as if making lawful gun purchases more expensive would somehow harm criminals. At about 7:45 a.m. Eastern, the show allowed two pro-gun activists from the Tacoma Rifle and Revolver Club to appear as guests and explain why they oppose the…
NY Times Puzzled Over Asian Opposition to Quotas in Washington State
November 6th, 2019 8:19 AM
The New York Times sounded perturbed that the blue state of Washington was resisting a return to the old divisive days of “affirmative action.” An editor insisted on calling it “Unlikely resistance to a ballot measure in Washington State” in a text box, although it makes sense that Asian-Americans would resist affirmative action, having been successful as a group without such assistance.

January 21st, 2018 10:32 PM
Dedicated tax-and-spend liberals often get help from the press in describing their plans to raid constituents' pocketbooks in vague terms, while nobly describing the alleged benefits of their plans to use the money.

Not National News: Costco Pushes Back at Seattle's Sugary Drink Tax
January 13th, 2018 9:23 PM
The City of Seattle probably didn't expect pushback from Costco, seen by many on the left as retail's "anti-Walmart," after its "sugary drink" tax of 1.75 cents per ounce went into effect January 1. But that is exactly what has happened. In moves the national press, which largely supports such taxes, has thus far ignored, Costco is itemizing the built-in cost of the tax on its Seattle store's…
Press Cover-up Returns to Haunt: Seattle Mayor Ends Reelection Bid
May 10th, 2017 9:52 PM
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray announced on Tuesday that he will not run for reelection as the city's mayor because of mounting allegations that he sexually abused underage boys in the 1980s.

NYT: Opponents of Amnesty for 'Undocumented' Are Like Racist Granddad
March 30th, 2015 12:07 PM
Adam Davidson of National Public Radio lumped people who oppose illegal immigration with racists and homophobes (like his grandfather) in the New York Times magazine:
When I was growing up in the 1980s, I watched my grandfather -- my dad’s stepdad -- struggle with his own prejudice. He was a blue-collar World War II veteran who loved his family above all things and was constantly afraid for them…
As Homelessness Rises in Seattle and Elsewhere, National Press Snoozes
January 22nd, 2015 11:53 PM
A week ago, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, a Democrat, called homelessness in his city and the rest of King County a "full-blown crisis."
Based on the numbers presented in coverage of the area's situation, we can certainly add the Emerald City to the list of areas where homelessness has been on the rise. Odds are that many readers here didn't know that, because the national press hardly ever pays…

More Obamacare Non-News: Children Denied Coverage For 'Specialty Treat
February 1st, 2014 10:34 AM
On January 20, we are told by "goptvclips," Seattle TV Station King 5 aired a short segment on how children "are being denied specialty treatment by insurance providers on the Washington Health Benefits Network." To be clear, the video's conclusion indicates that "Children's went ahead and treated" some but apparently far from all of the affected children, but, obviously "they can't afford to…
