On the first night of their revamped primetime lineup, Fox News dominated the ratings and dashed the hopes of CNN and MSNBC that the departure of Bill O’Reilly would provide them their biggest opportunity in years to catch up to the longtime ratings king. Fox handily won every hour in primetime in both total viewers […]

The government shutdown is not guaranteed, but it could happen. In case a shutdown does occur, CNN wrote a list article about seven ways that a government shutdown could affect Americans’ daily lives. What’s on the list? The U.S. Postal Service would not operate, as well as national parks and monuments. Then, the list talks […]
Huh? Rachel Maddow and ‘long, informative monologues’ sounds…like a liberal echo chamber. But, CNN wrote a puff piece highlighting Maddow’s rising ratings compared to Fox News and attributed it to Maddow’s anti-Trump segments that attract viewers. The article barely mentioned how Bill O’Reilly, her main competitor, was on vacation for a part of the month […]
A large mural of Michelle Obama in Chicago, Illinois was painted in the neighborhood where she grew up. However, the artist did not correctly attribute it, according to another artist: But the mural, by Chicago artist Chris Devins, has sparked intense debate — and not for the usual political reasons.

Bill O’Reilly didn’t waste any time after being fired from Fox News last week to make sure that his voice will still be heard. He announced his plans to do an O’Reilly Factor-like program via a podcast for those who are willing to pay: “Hey, I missed you guys. Welcome to the No Spin News on […]
The liberal media fawned over former President Barack Obama in his first post-White House remarks, after having vacationed around the world and avoiding public comment since Trump’s inauguration in January. What did the media say about his remarks? Not too much, other than how he called for less partisanship and for more outreach to young […]
Jennifer Palmieri, former communications manager for Hillary Clinton’s unsuccessful 2016 presidential campaign, was quoted as an “expert” by NBC News in a recent quote article on Trump’s first 100 days as President of the United States of America: His (shifting) beliefs “There’s no ideological coherence that underpins his presidency, which is why when one thing […]
CNN did an estimate about what the “sanctuary cities” will have to lose, financially, if the Trump administration were to toughen their stance on withholding federal funding from “sanctuary cities.” Here’s what CNN estimated: Seattle: $276 million New York City: $53 million Chicago: $3 billion Philadelphia: $26 million Los Angeles: $500 million
CNN has a good point about a voter fraud commission and investigation promised by the Trump administration. The President has spoken about illegal votes in the 2016 election and said he would look into it, but not much has been done since then. It’s up to President Trump to decide whether to act on voter fraud.
Each year legislators sharpen their knives, consider key constituent needs and meet to pass a budget. This year isn’t very different except that when the Republicans could not unify to replace the Affordable Care Act, unexpected questions about the party emerged. The Democrats are united in opposition and after tasting Republican blood in the DC […]
What the Times reporters are missing is that their reporting reveals how Lynch was playing politics, passionately trying to downplay the Clinton investigation.
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that while Donald Trump is the least popular president in modern times, he would still beat Hillary Clinton if the election were held today. The poll found that Trump’s approval ratings were at 42 percent and his disapproval ratings were at 53 percent. This compares To Obama’s 69-26 […]
Jihad Watch Director Robert Spencer rejects the notion that “Islam is a religion of peace,” and asserts that to confront terrorism people must understand that the terrorists’ ideology derives from Islamic “texts and teachings.” “And it is not racism or bigotry or hatred to note that jihadis are using the texts and teachings of Islam […]

Betsy DeVos, the new Department of Education cabinet secretary for President Donald Trump, is still deciding on student loan repayments and borrowing policies at the department. Yet, CNN raised the alarm because of the uncertainty, which is to be expected under a new administration.
The ‘March for Science,’ which took place on April 22 (Earth Day), was yet-another anti-Trump march meant to allow anti-Trump elements to vent their frustration in public. Previous anti-Trump marches were the Women’s March on Washington on January 21st and the Tax March on April 14th. Yet, the liberal media does not recognize that these […]
