MSM DEPLOYS MEDISCARE AGAINST CARSON

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the latest attempt by the “news” media to take down Ben Carson. This time they’re peddling the preposterous claim that he will “abolish Medicare.” The partisan press has been desperately seeking some weapon that will destroy the GOP presidential candidate who frightens them the most—Ben Carson. Last month, when [...]

WHY CARSON SCARES THE MEDIA

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the real reason the “news” media decided to lynch Ben Carson. It has nothing to do with Islam, guns or Nazi analogies: The media, having failed to stop Ben Carson’s steady rise in popularity by treating him like Ralph Ellison’s “invisible man,” are now going nuclear on him. The [...]

MATH IS HARD FOR OBAMACARIANS

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss misrepresentations of a new Urban Institute study by Obamacare apologists in the “news” media: If you read the “reporting” of the legacy media on Obamacare, you will have noticed a spate of stories with titles like the following from CNBC: ‘Health spending post-Obamacare seen $2.5 trillion lower.’ This headline [...]

WHO MOVED MY MEDIA?

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the hypocrisy of The New Republic’s high-profile writers regarding change: For years, the Washington press corps has been telling us that our medical delivery system was antiquated and unable to meet the needs of its 21st century customers … Over the past several days, we have had the opportunity [...]

OBAMACARE ISN’T GOING AWAY AS A CAMPAIGN ISSUE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the latest attempt by the “news” media to neutralize the damage Obamacare will do to the Democrats in the November midterms: The Los Angeles Times assisted in the launch of this propaganda campaign early this month with a piece titled, “Obamacare loses some of its campaign punch for Republicans.” [...]

‘OBAMACARE IS WORKING!’

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the latest whopper being peddled by the President and his accomplices in the “news” media: Last Thursday, the president announced the Obamacare debate over for the second time this month … ‘The repeal debate is and should be over. The Affordable Care Act is working.’ If you feel that [...]

MSM WHITEWASHES CBO REPORT

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the farcical attempt by the “news” media to put a positive spin on the CBO’s damning assessment of Obamacare’s effect on the economy and employment: The CBO report has created a serious dilemma for a press corps dedicated to protecting the Democrat Party from the electoral consequences of its [...]

THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING EZRA

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the long-overdue departure of Ezra Klein from the Washington Post: We don’t know if Jeff Bezos laughed aloud when Ezra Klein, one of his star bloggers at The Washington Post, pitched an idea for a new website and asked for an eight-figure check to get it off the ground. [...]

THE TRUTH ABOUT HOBBY LOBBY AND THE SUPREME COURT

In today’s American Spectator I try to clean up the horse manure spread by the media about the Obama administration’s request for a Supreme Court review of Hobby Lobby’s lawsuit against the government. Most of the major “news” outlets began their coverage with a rented AP report titled, “US Wants Supreme Court to Take Up [...]

GOP AT FAULT FOR OCARE TRAIN WRECK?

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the attempt by members of the media to blame Obamacare’s implementation ills on the GOP. The Dems won all the legislative battles and most of the court battles over this thing. Yet, somehow, it is the GOP’s fault that the wheels are coming off: Conspicuous among the blame-the-GOP crowd [...]
