Now That Trump Is Mostly Irrelevant, It Is Time for the Media to Put Up or Shut Up

OpinionAlex Edelman/Getty ImagesThanks to a last-minute impeachment, , the news media’s “Trump Era” was extended for three extra weeks. For the Fourth Estate, especially the very liberal elements of the media, this was like a five-year drug addict being finally forced to go rehab, and then finding a surprise stash with a small supply hidden under their bed.But now that the last of those stimulants are in the process of being used up, the news media has come to an important fork in the road regarding former President Donald Trump. Will they do what is journalistically sound and consistent...

Noonan Scorches 'Coward' Republicans Defending Trump: 'Those Who Acquit Are Voting For a Lie'

Photo by ROBERTO SCHMIDT/AFP via Getty Images.Peggy Noonan excoriated “coward” Republicans who are unwilling to vote to convict former President Donald Trump at his second impeachment trial in a scathing Wall Street Journal , writing: “Those who acquit are voting for a lie.”In Noonan’s view, the House Impeachment Managers made their case most effectively when they argued, not with emotional appeals, but “through time-stamped videos and close argumentation, and their timeline linked in an undeniable way the statements of the president on 1/6 and the actions of the rioters who stormed the...

Twitter is Nuts For Marjorie Taylor Greene Tantric Sex Guru Story

Twitter is Nuts For Marjorie Taylor Greene Tantric Sex Guru Story

Some stories are just too strange, and too much a part of our shabby zeitgeist, to ever hope or expect that they won’t become the subject of widespread mocking, meme-ing, jokes, and of course, outrage. Such is the case with the bizarre Marjorie Taylor Greene story the Daily Mail dropped on Twitter like a nuke on Thursday.The story? It’s tabloid gossip pretending at global breaking news, and is almost too strange to encapsulate. Or at least, to encapsulate twice, so just reference the Tweet that launched a thousand reactions:EXCLUSIVE: Embattled QAnon congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene...

Gov. Cuomo Under Fire for Calling the Push to Vaccinate Restaurant Workers 'a Cheap, Insincere Discussion'

Kelly Loeffler Aide Reportedly Shoves CNN Reporter Manu Raju, Reprimanded By Capitol Police

An aide for Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) reportedly shoved CNN reporter Manu Raju as she entered the Capitol Wednesday for the joint session of Congress to count the Electoral College votes.Loeffler lost her bid to retain her seat in Tuesday’s runoff election to Democrat Raphael Warnock, and while her colleague Sen. David Perdue’s (R-GA) race has not yet been called, it seems likely to fall to the Democrats as well, with Jon Ossoff several thousand votes ahead and outstanding votes from blue-leaning areas.Loeffler had previously said that she intended to join the Republicans who were...

Brian Kemp (R-GA) and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger “every chance to get it right. They refuse. They will soon be going to jail.”President Trump is a genuinely good man.

How the Hunter Biden Laptop Story Disappeared from Fox News Prime Time After the Election

How the Hunter Biden Laptop Story Disappeared from Fox News Prime Time After the Election

OpinionCredit: MediaiteFor years, Fox News’s prime time block has acted as little more than a megaphone for President Donald Trump, echoing, if not feeding, his White House messaging and campaign narratives. Even acknowledging that the network likes to discount those three hours as merely opinion programming, any self-respecting news channel should ostensibly expect its commentary to avoid outright hagiography and a willingness to traffic in a politician’s latest lies. But if there were any nagging doubts as to the symbiotic relationship between Trump and Fox’s three top-rated primetime...

And nothing about the circumstances we face today suggest that if we lose resolve, the terrorists will simply leave us alone.”McConnell...
