<p>On Wednesday's <em>Full Frontal</em> show on TBS, liberal comedian Samantha Bee lashed out against Immigration and Customs Enforcement by likening its agents to those who cheered when Jews were taken away to be killed by German Nazis as she pushed for abolishing the agency. She also took a shot at "wall humpers" in the Republican party as she cracked that they could rejoice that other police officers would still be around to "treat nonwhite people like subhuman garbage."</p>

5 hours 21 min ago
<p>Tuesday, MS-13 gang member Joel Martinez was sentenced to 40 years in prison for the murder of a 15 year-old boy from a rival gang. The <em>Boston Globe</em> reported on May 14 that Martinez "was captured on video bragging about the slaying." The <em>Globe</em> also noted that the killer's nickname is the singular version of the word President Donald Trump used two days later to describe MS-13 members. In its story on Martinez's sentencing, the Associated Press violated its own Stylebook guidance when it failed to note that Martinez is in the U.S. illegally.</p>

Beware the 'School Is More Dangerous Than the Military' Talking Points

9 hours 44 min ago
<p>Snopes.com explored the popular liberal talking point that (to quote the front of the New York <em>Daily News</em>) “more students or teachers killed by guns in U.S. schools than active-duty military deaths in 2018.” That statistic is true if you only count deaths in combat, and false if you include accidental deaths. But there are more than 50 million students in public schools, and only 1.3 million members of the armed forces.</p>

16 hours 42 min ago
<p>During Wednesday’s <em>S.E. Cupp Unfiltered</em>, CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter and HLN host S.E. Cupp bought into Stahl’s questionable claims and used them to bash the President as a beacon to authoritarian dictators the world over. “So what I've been saying for 18 months is confirmed,” Cupp self-righteously declared. “President Trump's war on the media is intentional and the goal is to create confusion and sow distrust.”</p>

Conservative Speakers on Campus Lead to Fascism on 'The Handmaid's Tale'

19 hours 18 min ago
<p>Does Hulu’s <em>The Handmaid’s Tale </em>have any original ideas anymore? We’re now more than halfway through the second season, and every episode seems to just parrot feminist talking points and overblown fears of the Christian patriarchy. This latest episode just takes it one step further by comparing one of the show's villains to the conservative speakers who face anti-free speech protests on campuses across the nation today.</p>

Crapweasel of the Week: Educrat Arne Duncan

Wed, 05/23/2018 - 22:01
<p>Educrat (ED-yoo-krat) noun, usually pejorative. A government school official or administrator whose primary function is to spend tax dollars telling other parents what to do with their children. Beltway education bureaucrats abhor families who choose to keep their kids out of public schools -- unless it's to grandstand over gun control. Behold Arne Duncan, longtime pal of Barack Obama and former U.S. Department of Education secretary, who called last weekend for parents nationwide to withdraw students from classes "until gun laws (are) changed to keep them safe."</p>

From Russia With Love

Wed, 05/23/2018 - 21:59
<p>Robert Mueller's investigation into whether President Donald Trump and the Russians colluded to rig the 2016 presidential election so far has borne little fruit. The Democrats and their media allies would love to find some Russian collusion and interference. I can help them discover some, but I doubt that they will show much interest.</p>

Nets Silent on Trump’s Pro-Life Speech: ‘Every Life Is Sacred’

Wed, 05/23/2018 - 19:56

Media Mostly Uncritical in Covering Assisted Suicide Advocates

Wed, 05/23/2018 - 19:35
<p>The latest example of massive media collusion and manipulation to advance the culture of death came in Exit International’s staging, earlier this month, of the death of renowned Australian scientist David Goodall in Switzerland. In news coverage offered by major U.S. Spanish-language media outlets, for example, there was no semblance of fair or balanced reporting on the controversy surrounding the push for assisted suicide, and instead all the hallmarks of a carefully orchestrated campaign to favorably shape public opinion on the matter.</p>
