A Memorial to the Victims of Communism


Today, FrontPage Magazine published a must read article written by Barbara Kay.
The subject of the piece is FPM’s managing editor Jamie Glazov’s father, Yuri. Yuri Glazov was an outspoken critic of the Soviet regime. After signing the infamous “letter of the twelve,” the regime had enough and declared war on him. They trumped up some drugs [...]

Leftist The Nation magazine: When In Doubt, Blame Bush. Again


It seems that math, cooking and basic home economics aren’t the only things with which Katrina Vanden Heuvel has trouble. I wrote about her inability to function at those household basics yesterday, here at NewsReal. Well, it appears that the reality-challenged Vanden Heuvel, Editor of The Nation magazine, also isn’t a very good, you know, [...]

If you want to rape a 12-year-old girl and have the authorities sanction it, Saudi Arabia is the place for you.

Magazine says W.H. Islam envoy misquoted; writer denies – POLITICO.com


A magazine that altered an article referring to President Barack Obama’s new envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, Rashad Hussain, says it did so because he was misquoted, but the author of the article is standing by her story.

NewsReal Sunday: The End of a Dynasty? Patrick Kennedy Bows Out


Representative Patrick Kennedy has announced that he is not running for re-election; an unheard of event in the last generation, but it may be a sign that the magic of the Kennedy clan has faded among today’s Catholic voters.

Joe Klein Compares Obama to a Mixed Breed Dog… Crickets Chirp


If it’s true that cockroaches can survive a nuclear blast, I guess crickets can live through record setting blizzards.
Because that chirping sound you hear is coming from the general direction of Media Matters headquarters, in Washington, DC.

On Sunday, Time magazine’s Joe Klein wrote:

Diesel’s Ad Campaign to Teens: “Show Us Your Boobs”


It seems that advertising executives now think it’s totally cool to include teens in that whole “sex sells” marketing tool. Diesel Jeans has a new ad campaign running, called Be Stupid (sadly, they don’t mean it ironically) wherein they encourage people to “have balls.” Okay, “having balls”, or as grown-ups like to say, taking risks, has its [...]

From the Writings of David Horowitz: February 5, 2010


Winston Churchill once remarked that there was nothing more exhilarating than to be shot at without result. Perhaps that’s why he enjoyed being a conservative — it guaranteed he would frequently be a target.
Recently, I dodged my own political bullet when columnist Jack White smeared me as a “racist” in Time magazine. In fact, [...]

Feminist Diversity Cop Wants More “Colored Women” in Vanity Fair


Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood issue hit newsstands this week, and the full color glossy has  taken a decidedly monochromatic approach to highlighting Tinseltown’s up-and-comers. Naturally, the preponderance of slender, white women gracing the Vanity Fair cover is a big deal in the feminist blogosphere.
