Politico, Slate Give Parkland Students Megaphone for NRA ‘Hypocrisy’

A Politico article Monday covered Parkland students’ complaints about the NRA, to include a bizarre take on how people are not allowed to carry guns to speeches by the president or vice-president. “Parkland survivors criticized the National Rifle Association after it banned guns from Vice President Mike Pence’s upcoming speech at the organization’s annual convention […]

Politico’s ‘News Deserts’ Theory Has a Big Hole in It

Politico (full disclosure, my former employer) released an investigation about how “Trump thrives in areas that lack traditional news outlets,” implying that a weak local press meant citizens were less engaged and this weaker engagement correlated with support for President Trump during the 2016 election.

Media Barely Covers How Clinton’s Book Tour is Hurting the Democratic Party

The liberal media is overwhelmingly in favor of the Democratic Party, where only 7% of journalists are registered Republicans.

Liberal Media Realizes the Truth about Antifa: FBI Designated Them as ‘Terrorists’

The liberal media finally recognized the violence that motivates Antifa (short for “anti-fascists”) extremists.
