Keywords: Jeff Bezos, Amazon, Washington Post, circulation, problems.
Sorry about the title, but I want to make sure that Jeff Bezos – more accurately, his research team – sees this post. Mind you, I’m assuming that Bezos plans to introduce the Amazon customer service paradigm to the Washington Post, but surely this is not an unreasonable assumption, hey? Anyway, on to the purpose for this post. The Washington Post is doing it again | Read More »
Summer Reading List with Niall Ferguson and Conrad Black
This week on PowerTalk, I’m serving up our late summer reading list. That’s right, the last few weeks of August tend to be filled with cookouts, vacations and lounging by the pool. If you’re doing any of those things, or if you’re like me and you’re not, you still need a good book or two to get you through the dog days of summer. With | Read More »

On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Aaron Blake to discuss the 2016 presidential race, efforts to boost Democrat Hillary Clinton, and why Marco Rubio can relate to voters in a way that Mitt Romney never could.

Hillary Watch 2016: The ‘Queen’s Machine’ Is Gearing Up To Squash Anyone In Her Path
As our Hillary Watch 2016 series marches on, Hillary 2016 pop-up ads from what I am calling the “Queen’s Machine” are bombarding my computer screen. Ads like this one below or others shouting: “Show Your Support. Take the Ready for Hillary pledge.” (One can only imagine what that pledge entails.) The ads are proof the Ready for Hillary PAC is becoming more ready every day and that the Queen’s Machine is in | Read More »
Why the 20 Week Abortion Ban Is a Huge Step
Every life is precious. And for that reason, any legislation that moves the ball forward, that protects A life, is worth getting behind.

Obamacare is not living up to its promises and even the media knows it.
“For the average American out there, for the 85 and 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, this thing’s already happened. And their only impact is that their insurance is stronger, better and more secure than it was before. Full stop. That’s it. They don’t have to worry about anything else.” This is a quote from President Obama, and it’s also incorrect. One | Read More »
The Performance President vs. The Press Conference President
If an alien landed in Washington today and asked me to describe our leader, all I would have to do is show him video footage of two events just days apart. First would be video of our leader performing at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD) on Saturday evening. There, the alien would watch as President Obama delivered a series of hilarious jokes with masterful | Read More »
Hillary Watch 2016: You COULD Ignore All The Latest News, But That Would Be Foolish
tive! Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Does this iconic Superman intro also describe the state of Hillary’s non-campaign campaign for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in 2016? Perhaps, but with so much news the media is slobbering to report that barf bags, “tucked into the seat pocket in front of you,” may be needed to help RedState readers get through it all. Let’s first start with the | Read More »
Tech at Night: Catching up after Easter with Aereo, Google, and Obama
I meant to post over the weekend, but with RedState so active for Easter, I decided just to cancel the Friday Tech.
Hey folks, here’s more evidence: Population density matters for Internet speeds. Wealth also matters. Those who don’t adjust for these factors, and tell you US Internet speeds are slow or bad, are selling something. Usually government.
And yes, it’s still a problem that the Obama administration isn’t doing enough to oppose global Internet regulation through the ITU. Some say the administration was duped, but I think they just don’t oppose global regulation and governance. Obama wants to bow to foreign countries by letting global tyrants hijack the Internet from the free peoples of the world.

Announcing HILLARY WATCH 2016: We Read, We Report, So You Can Ignore
Photo credit: Getty Images The day after the 2012 presidential election was the unofficial beginning of the mainstream media’s (MSM) obsession with Hillary Rodham Clinton’s (HRC) political plans for 2016. Now given that Friday, February 1st is the day when HRC steps down as Secretary of State to resume her life as a private citizen, this is the perfect week to launch an occasional new | Read More »
Washington Post deigns to report on renditions again.
The Washington Post is almost believably shocked to discover that the practice of rendition has returned to Clinton-era levels: …it is not known how many renditions have taken place during Obama’s first term. But his administration has not disavowed the practice. Hot Air called this a ‘surprise.’ I know that they’re being sarcastic, because those folks were as aware of the situation with regard to | Read More »
Washington Post chairman: Paywalls aren’t profitable. We’re going to do a paywall.
Good luck with this. I guess I am still surprised with the mainstream media — that left-leaning executives and investors (who want to make money) hire very liberal news management (who are more concerned about advancing an agenda than making a profit for the company), and that they all would rather go out of business instead of simply making a product that most Americans would | Read More »
I think I have been more than fair to the media and their polling. I accept that Romney is a bit behind, but acknowledge that a number of polls have a higher Democratic margin than the turn out in 2008. I think it is unfortunate that major media players would rather insult conservatives who take issue with that then explain why it is so and | Read More »
Politico Fires a Shot Across Obama’s Bow with ‘Egotistical, Selfish, Dull’ Headline
Under the improbable headline “Media: Obama is egotistical, selfish, dull,” Politico‘s Dylan Byers noted Monday that over the Labor Day weekend, “major media outlets…lobb[ed] five high-profile bombs at the incumbent.” The article itself isn’t as noteworthy as the title, which is particularly eye-catching from a political publication whose left-leaning orientation is well known.The examples Byers points to come from the New York Times, the Washington Post, HuffPo, the Wall Street Journal, and his own Politico. Let’s take a quick look at them – and at the laugher that a senior campaign official offered in response.
