New York Times: Layers of Editors And Fact Checkers

August 8, 2017 1willford 0

By: Mike McDaniel    Dana Loesch is a woman the Left loves to hate. She’s a virtual encyclopedia of leftist paranoia: young, smart, an articulate speaker and clear thinker, an NRA spokesman, gun owner, author, and oh yes, beautiful to boot. As I noted in July in NRA: Loesching The [Read More]

Smart Guns: You Can’t Fix Stupid

July 31, 2017 1willford 0

I have written about so-called “smart gun” technology from time to time. I’ve taken to the keyboard whenever someone thought they’d invented the holy grail of such guns, whenever a legislator was trying to mandate them, or whenever a leftist reporter (I know: redundant) was wailing about the evil NRA [Read More]

Satirizing Self-Satire

May 8, 2017 1willford 0

By: Mike McDaniel    As I tell my students when we’re dealing with common literary terms, satire is a form of comedy where one makes fun of individuals or institutions by exaggeration, or by telling the whole truth about them. I suppose I should update the definition a bit, because [Read More]

Nicholas Kristoff: The Olympian Heights Of Progressivism

April 13, 2017 1willford 0

By: Mike McDaniel    On March 4, 2017 I wrote A Voice Of Otherizing Reason discussing a New York Times editorial by Nicholas Kristof. Kristoff’s article was an apparently sincere attempt by a progressive journalist to provoke a modicum of empathy for the poor deplorables that dared to vote for [Read More]

Washington Post: A Verified Version Of The Truth

March 11, 2017 1willford 0

By: Mike McDaniel    What is “fake news?” According to our intellectual, moral betters in the media, it’s not at all what we, deplorables all, think it is. Nicholas Ballasy reports at PJ Media:    Margaret Sullivan, media columnist for The Washington Post, said the term ‘fake news’ originally referred to a story written [Read More]

The Wonder And Joys Of FISAgate

March 8, 2017 1willford 0

By: Mike McDaniel    What We Know: Barack Obama and virtually everyone associated with him lies. They lie as a matter of policy, political convenience, and a lack of personal integrity. Consider this from Steven Hayes at The Weekly Standard:  To read the rest, go here…

A Voice Of Otherizing Reason

March 4, 2017 1willford 0

By: Mike McDaniel    This, gentle readers, is what passes for a conciliatory voice from the Left. This is what the voice of progressive healing, unity and reason sounds like, courtesy, of course, of The New York Times, from an article titled Trump Voters Aren’t The Enemy, by Nicholas Kristof: To read the [Read More]

Never-Ending Smart Gun Stupidity

December 3, 2016 1willford 0

By: Mike McDaniel    Bad ideas, particularly those dreamed up by progressives, never die. They merely lurk in the shadows, waiting for honest, law-abiding American’s attention to momentarily wander. Such is the case with so-called “smart” guns. Like microstamping, smart guns are a brilliant solution to a nonexistent problem, a solution posed, from [Read More]

Trump: Scaring Livestock and Stampeding Women And Children

November 16, 2016 1willford 0

By: Mike McDaniel     The publisher of the New York Times has recently published an open letter to subscribers that some are terming an apology. In actuality, he apologizes for nothing, but merely suggests the NYT wants to do better at journalism, as Michael Goodwin at The NY Post reports:  The Gray [Read More]

The New York Times has a perfect Fox Butterfield fallacy

September 3, 2016 Bookworm 0

For those unfamiliar with the term, “Fox Butterfield fallacy” is named after a New York Times rejoicing under the euphonious name “Fox Butterfield.” Butterfield wrote an article in 1994 that dealt with what to him was a mystifying conundrum: How could there be more criminals in prison if crime rates were [Read More]

Ragging on a rag

Wolf Howling notes that while the NYT is having problems, its owner is doing quite well, thank you. Or as Power Line puts it: Greedy Executives Loot Failing Company Greedy Executives Loot Failing Company.
