Conservative bloggers, activists and political pundits frequently bemoan the blatant bias that we see every day in the media. Indeed, it has become so glaringly obvious that only the most dense person would not recognize it. The left has turned the field of journalism into a mockery. No standards, no truth, no-holds-barred. All’s fair in their tacit agreement to use their broadcasting power to defeat anyone who stands in the way of implementing the left’s agenda for America.
The most recent example came on the heels of Senator Marco Rubio’s State of the Union speech when he had the audacity to need a drink of water. How dare he commit such a faux pas. The left-wing propaganda machine played it and replayed it in its predictable attempts to make Rubio look like an incompetent bumbler.
What to do about it? Even the soft-spoken Dr. Benjamin Carson mentioned it in follow-up interviews he conducted after his much-watched speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. In response to his critics who tried to shame him for daring to give a speech that challenged President Obama’s vision for the country at a prayer breakfast, he reminded everyone that Obama is not a monarch and that our government is here to serve us not the other way around.
Dr. Carson’s answer to what to do about the political correctness police is to speak up. The left’s tactics are designed to silence us and only allow their side to be heard (because they’re so tolerant and all). And we must resist that pressure and speak out no matter where we are or who is present.
Good advice. I would like to see the pretense dropped and less cooperation with left-wing journalists altogether. They need to be seen for what they are — our enemies. Why does our side continue to walk into their camp knowing every question and comment will be laced with propaganda and innuendo designed to destroy, belittle and marginalize us? At some point, we must recognize that this is stupid on our part.
Well, that’s enough for now. I’ll leave you with some good music by Jon Gibson to enjoy on this President’s Day Monday or, more accurately, Washington’s Birthday. (See the link for Mike DeVine’s history of how the name has been changed unofficially.)

It was especially evident this week in the difference between the Democrat and Republican debates. And it is the most evident in how the media deal with abortion. Sen. Rubio takes them apart over it. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES What a glum, drab debate. ABC clearly tried to make all the candidates look bad, and the bad blood between the candidates left over from Iowa meant that they just did not care about showing any level of solidarity against the media, as they often do. Christie successfully tore down Marco Rubio for the first hour of the debate, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The New Hampshire debate on ABC was an absolute ****show from start to finish. However, there were a few candidates who came across as ready to lead, and there were candidates who took this debate as merely a placeholder until South Carolina and beyond. The governors on the stage, however, looked like actual grown-ups tonight. Jeb Bush finally wins | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The first half of this debate has been an absolute trainwreck. Almost everyone on the stage (with the possible exceptions of Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz) has come off as more unlikeable than they were when they started. The Federalist’s Sean Davis I think has the best summary of the first half of the debate tonight and what is | Read More »
