From the Pen of David Horowitz: October 2, 2009


Widespread classroom showings of Moore’s films Bowling for Columbine, Farenheit 9/11 and Sicko – without critical commentary — provide a useful index of the decline of intellectual standards documented in Indoctrination U. These showings are naked attempts to persuade students of the correctness of the instructors’ personal views and could not occur without the similarly [...]

Female Genital Mutilation, Islam and Leftist Silence


My recent NewsReal blog on Naomi Wolf and female genital mutilation (FGM) – also posted at Frontpagemag.com and Jihadwatch.org — has triggered a heated debate in the blogs’ comments sections on all three sites. The key arguments in these three sections personify some of the Left’s key tactics in its romance with tyranny and [...]

Who are You Gonna Believe, Jimmy Carter or Your Lying Eyes (and Ears)?


Remember this?
JIMMY CARTER, FMR. U.S. PRESIDENT:  I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he‘s African-American.  I live in the South, and I have seen the South come a long way and I have seen the rest [...]

Ann Coulter Calls Out the Left For Its “Wimpy” Methods of Changing Society

Media Matters mocks heavily armed man who hunts his own food and may be insane


That’s right: Media Matters is now going after… Ted Nugent.
Today the Media Matters website proclaims: “Nugent jumps on Beck bandwagon: Obama and Carter the “real racists” who “have been destroying black America for decades”

Representative Grayson of Florida has created an uproar with vicious attacks on Republicans.

A Spoonful of Saccharine: American People Support Obamacare (If You Define “American People” to Mean “Mostly Leftists”)


Lat night, Rachel Maddow had another one of her “TRUTH about the LIES about ACORN” segments, but it was not worth dwelling on. Most of the segment was a rehash of what Maddow has been saying for the past week—ACORN is essentially good, the right wing is out to smear this organization unjustly, yada, yada, [...]

Media Matters accepts “senior moment” excuse from ACORN’s Rathke


Here’s the “gotcha” Media Matters is highlighting on its web site today: “Latest fact-check fail: Fox News runs with claim that White House official worked for ACORN”:
After Matthew Vadum wrote in The American Spectator that “[e]vidence shows that years before he joined the Obama administration,” White House political affairs director Patrick Gaspard [who now holds [...]

Bias on FOX News


FOX media commentator Bernie Goldberg’s weekly appearance on the O’Reilly Factor turned into a shouting match about whether certain unnamed talking heads on FOX News were spinning their biased views as facts.   This was in response to O’Reilly’s question as to why FOX is under constant attack by the “mainstream” media.
After conceding that FOX’s conservative views [...]

Anatomy of a Straw Man: Liberal Doublespeak on Afghanistan


Turn on any cable news channel discussion of Afghanistan right now and you will hear three words from the liberal spokesman, whether it’s a politician, Democratic party strategist or consultant, or pundit.
“Afghanistan isn’t Iraq.”
Well, yeah…  But these words aren’t just a statement of the geographically obvious.  This is the retort when the discussion turns to [...]
