The grim joke of the 20th century was that one death is a tragedy, 1 million is a statistic. Well, in the 21st century age of information warfare, one man’s libel is an outrage. When thousands do it, we call that ‘the news.’
Documents prepared as part of an ongoing lawsuit against Biden and his business partners allege they are in violation of Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and have committed fraud.
Joshua Geltzer’s argument to strip states of congressional representation is just the latest in a long line of extremist claims from the left that get laundered through the media to appear as if they are ‘mainstream.’
Instead of self-examination and taking stock of their copious failures, many in the media have chosen to blame Trump and suggest his supporters are victims of ‘disinformation’ instead of winning back readers’ trust.
Another year has nearly passed, and so we present another long list of compelling book recommendations from The Federalist’s staff and contributors.
The facts detailed in the inspector general’s report on federal spying abuses make clear that the entire anti-Trump investigation was tainted by partisan political bias.
Trump insults a lot of people, and D.C. elites are horrified. But Biden can call an Iowa voter who asked a reasonable question about corruption fat and tell him Biden has a ‘much higher IQ.’
Trump’s presidency has been defined by senior government officials who are open about their loyalty to the administrative state, including criminal acts and abuses of power, over the imperatives of a democratically elected president.
I’m utterly mystified by those who insist on another national struggle session over the president’s rhetoric because of their misplaced belief that D.C. was all curtsies and decorum before Trump showed up.
Beltway types still haven’t grasped that voters decided long before Trump arrived on the political scene that most of what passes for standard operating procedure in D.C. is just as farcical.
The American media’s Trump-Russia hysteria of the last few years gains some real perspective when you consider that they are more than willing to take blood money to distribute publications that whitewash authoritarian crimes.
Look at this chyron from CNN last night. Notice anything wrong?
Sanders doesn’t have a health care plan, so much as a branding strategy for one. Medicare is very popular, but it’s already bankrupting the nation.
College entrance has become the primary, all-consuming educational goal for far too many parents, at the expense of understanding what constitutes a good education and what it should accomplish.
Lost in the mists of the last decade: People spoke openly of Obama’s ‘Jewish problem’ in 2008. He went on to normalize Israel critics with dubious motivations and terror connections.
There’s a very strong case to be made that in the long-term, Central America, for all its problems, is a lot safer and more stable because of U.S. foreign policy in the 1980s.
Major media organizations are about to be sued for irresponsibly turning innocent Covington Catholic school boys into objects of national hatred. A lack of standards threatens to open the media to all kinds of legal liabilities.
Is there any American newsroom left that has the good sense not to publish outlandish opinions on hot-button issues? Have they considered whether this is poisoning our discourse?
An unpublished journal entry by Texas congressman and liberal darling Beto O’Rouke provides startling insight into the mind of the failed Senate candidate and formidable presidential contender.
