Political journalism is dead. After being on hospice the past few decades, the Fourth Estate essentially expired  during the 2016 Presidential election and we have been watching highlight and blooper reels ever since. I used to dream of being...
Gosh, I wonder if this is going to be a puff piece? Update: This gives new meaning to the term "Deep Throat." "The special counsel is, like Trump, the scion of a wealthy family, raised at a boarding school and educated...
So yesterday afternoon I decided to go through the FEC filings for Jon Ossoff, the Democratic candidate in Georgia who on Tuesday managed to lose his House race despite spending $30 million. I figured there'd be some interesting information...

1004: Trump: "We put up the American flag." There is a limit to human degradation. Good night. 1001: Hold on. I want to hear Hillary lie about the Clinton Foundation. 1000: There is a limit to human degradation. Good night. 946: Cubs up...

I’ve followed presidential campaigns for years and it’s never been an uplifting experience, but this year has marked a genuine low for the media. The basic problem is that the lion’ share of journalists covering the campaign are actively...
Last week, I discussed here some of the questions surrounding Edward Snowden, the NSA “whistleblower,” who has been embraced by liberals and the left. The uncritical support Snowden enjoys was personally reinforced for me by the hate mail and...
Before the debate Monday, the Internet was buzzing about the appearance of Gennifer Flowers allegedly orchestrated by Donald Trump. This was billed to be quite the showdown. Ms. Flowers seated up front so she could stare down Hillary Clinton,...
