September 8th, 2017 4:37 PM
The advent of computer and online technology has made it difficult for newspapers to continue producing and distributing copies of their printed editions while remaining afloat financially.

'Homeland' Blames Right-Wing for Fake News 'Sock Puppet' Accounts
March 19th, 2017 11:56 PM
Man, Showtime’s Homeland really doesn’t like Alex Jones or anyone who supports him.

Showtime's 'Homeland' Parodies Infowar's Alex Jones
February 19th, 2017 11:47 PM
Showtime’s Homeland is really working on trying to get back on the good side of liberals this season, even after empathizing with terrorist sympathizers and demeaning Israeli settlers. But if they want a medal for that, they’ll have to wait a lot longer than six seasons. Until then, we have to deal with their next appeasement to the liberal crowds: an Alex Jones parody.

Catherine Rampell, Washington Post columnist and former New York Times business reporter, had some no-doubt well-meant advice for the Republican Party in her Monday column: “Want to save the Republican Party?

Liberal Web Pundits on the RNC: ‘Zombie Reagan Is Good and Buried’
July 23rd, 2016 1:17 PM
The debate rages on as to whether Donald Trump has remodeled or vandalized the Republican party. In any event, left-wing pundits spent the week gaping at, and writing about, what they viewed as the grotesque spectacle of the RNC. For example, Daily Kos’s Hunter opined that the convention was "was barely one step up from an internet-peddled snuff film,” and Salon’s Heather Digby Parton declared…

Glenn Beck Show Hilariously Mocks Alex Jones Fawning Over Charlie Shee
March 25th, 2011 10:46 PM
Almost lost in the public astonishment over the meltdown of Charlie Sheen on the radio show of fellow 9-11 Truther, Alex Jones, was the incredibly bizarre fawning over Sheen by the radio host. I say "almost lost" because today Glenn Beck and his radio crew produced absolute comedy gold by goofing on Jones' groupie-like fawning over Sheen. It started off as just a few throwaway lines but Glenn…
