What an academic hoax can teach us about journalism in the age of Trump

Call it, if you like, a replication experiment. Twenty-one years ago, the New York University physicist Alan Sokal attempted to prove that the influence of postmodern ways of thinking in the humanities had reached the point where academic nonsense was indistinguishable from academic sense. As a physicist, Sokal found writing about science to be particularly...

Meet the Robotics Wiz Behind Old Spice’s Giant Mechanical Sea Creature

Unless you've been lost at sea, you've probably heard about the giant robotic squid that Old Spice deployed last weekend for a wacky, high-profile internet game on Twitch.

Media Makes a Big Deal out of a Hand Swat by Melania Trump

This is a non-story, isn’t it? Melania Trump, the First Lady of the United States, swatted the hand of her husband, President Donald Trump, and it was caught on video. The video clip went viral, meaning a lot of people saw it, and it led to speculation about why she swatted her husband’s hand. Can’t […]

Washington Post Defended Obama’s ‘Bow’ in Piece about Trump’s Alleged Bow in Saudi Arabia

The Washington Post did some digging, and to be fair, it gave context to the ‘American presidents do not bow to foreign leaders’ controversy. President Donald Trump did not bow, as the Left and liberal media alleged, but dipped his head so he could receive a Saudi Arabian civilian medal from Saudi Arabia’s King Salman. […]

CNN: Trump ‘called a hypocrite’ for Saudi Arabia Bow

CNN ran with the headline, “Trump called a hypocrite for Saudi king bow,” and drew a direct contrast to former President Barack Obama’s infamous bow before the Saudi Arabian monarch. Predictable for a network bent on being an anti-Trump voice, isn’t it? Too bad that CNN did not note that it was not a bow […]

Trump Presidency Takedown Effort is Underway

The injustice here, and the double standard, is that there was never a media frenzy like this during the Obama years, nor a special counsel appointed or even contemplated.
