Column: When the Media's Humility Died in Darkness

October 18th, 2023 5:55 AM

Insular media elites have a nasty habit of thinking they represent Democracy. They aren’t a half or a third of Democracy. They own it. Like they’ve trademarked it. Anyone who dares to attack them is attacking Democracy. The most obvious example is The Washington Post and their arrogant motto “Democracy Dies in Darkness.”

October 7th, 2023 10:11 PM

On Friday, former Washington Post Executive Editor Martin Baron appeared on their Washington Post Live to promote his new book on leading the Post in the Trump years.

October 2nd, 2023 9:49 AM

WashPost Skipped Immigration Status In Brutal Murder of Muslim Girl

April 9th, 2019 3:39 PM

They did it again on…

For those who either didn’t watch Tuesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight or want to relive it, The Federalist’s Sean Davis made a rare TV appearance and absolutely lambasted the liberal media for their years-long narrative that the President and his team colluded with Russians, calling this falsehood “probably the biggest, most consequential screw up of the last 25 to 50 years.”

WashPost, NY Times Compete for Most Ludicrous Claim of Nonpartisanship

April 4th, 2018 11:06 AM
Executives at America's top liberal newspapers firmly expressed the sentiment that they report on Donald Trump without bias or partisanship. This should launch a national wave of spit takes.
