Enough With This “Epistemic Closure” Crap


Should reporters who believe that most of America is stupid and insane be in the journalism business? Let’s consider the question.
Take left-wing journalist Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic. He’s not bad at his job. His insights are often worthwhile and occasionally wise. Yet Ambinder sometimes writes things so foolish that one might expect to read them at [...]

Prime Time Slime: Larry King Says Sarah Palin Should Pose for Playboy


I know. I had forgotten that show was still on the air, too. Well, I suppose even Michael Moore needs a show to appear on where he is actually slightly more attractive than the host. Anyway, Larry “I literally am older than dirt” King is at it again. Not content with just exposing his serial [...]

The Visceral Acid of Cathy Areu, Who Says Palin Lacks Class


Cathy Areu is the quintessential feminist: hopelessly insecure — and just plain mad.

Wikileaks’ ‘Iraq: Collateral Damage’ video ‘doesn’t show the broader picture’

Bill Maher’s HuffPo Column: “Firing All the Teachers May Feel Good–We’re Americans, Kicking People When They’re Down is What We do”


Not long ago I wrote “Save a School-Fire a Teacher?” about a failing school district that fired all of its teachers in response to the outrageous demands from the teacher’s union.
