Before Bundy's sudden fall, Fox News touted him and his anarchic militia supporters as symbols of American resistance. Keep that in mind next time a Fox talker denounces Black Lives Matter as lawless.

It has become conventional belief that the media is supposed to be objective. Yet objectivity is unattainable. By choosing which part of a story to emphasize, which sources to use, and the order of the stories, media organizations exhibit bias.

Sorry to tell you guys, but we ain't buying your sudden transformation and support for us. It smells of political expediency. Try peddling your fraud to other voting groups.

'Twistifications' 2016: Excerpt From BRIGHT, INFINITE FUTURE

Mark Green | Posted 04.21.2016 | Politics
Mark Green

Since it's not easy for faithful conservatives to answer questions about climate science, gun violence, mass deportation, and Obama's economy, among others, they often resort to several rhetorical tools to sway credulous audiences. This enables lazy commentators and defensive Republicans to dismiss serious criticism by asserting that "both sides do it."

Trump Veep Speculation

Sure, it's funny -- when you first consider it. But then the more you think about it, the more sense it actually makes. After all, is "Trump/Ventura 2016" really that much more outlandish than "Donald Trump, Republican presidential nominee" first sounded?

Anger? You bet there's anger. But as revealed by Jen Senko's new documentary "The Brainwashing of My Dad," it is faux anger, caused by more than a generation of propaganda stemming from a coordinated far right takeover of media -- and brains.

With billionaire bully boy Donald Trump arrogantly flashing his fascist colors on Super Tuesday, how many supposedly big-time Republicans have spoken out against his disgusting politics of racism, hatred, and aggressive know-nothingism? Too damn few.

Nine months in Barcelona didn't make me a better person. It did make me smarter, more cultured, and in some respects humbler -- mainly because I realized how ignorant I was.

Geoffrey Dunn

I received an email today from a black elder asking me to reprint a column I wrote for an African American newspaper in April 2008 detailing the persistent racism in the Clinton campaign as it tried to derail Obama's historic run for the presidency. She wanted me to "remind the American people of how far the Clintons had stooped" a mere eight years ago.

Why do Republican voters seem to naturally gravitate to celebrities -- most of whom are, shall we say, 'short' on actual knowledge about politics, legislative issues, and global affairs?

When Fox News Didn't Blame The White House For A Huge Terror Attack In Europe (Hint: Bush Was President)

Eric Boehlert | Posted 11.18.2015 | Media
Eric Boehlert

For anyone who's been watching the Fox News coverage since Friday and seen the almost non-stop smear campaign against Obama (it's been part of the larger, right-wing media freakout), it's almost unimaginable what the Fox commentary would sound like if ISIS killed hundreds in America during next year's campaign.

"That was after my time," Fiorina said. Interesting. First, Redington Gulf was named Wholesaler of the Year for HP in 2003, when Carly Fiorina was very much the CEO. Second, this is a totally different answer than the one she delivered a week ago, to Chris Wallace.

Carly Fiorina Lies To Fox, Has A Bri-Wi Problem

Eric Schmeltzer | Posted 09.21.2015 | Politics
Eric Schmeltzer

Carly Fiorina has a big problem with the truth. More specifically, she has a problem with embellishing the truth, in a manner very reminiscent of disgraced NBC anchor Brian Williams. In what is becoming a pattern, Fiorina takes what is true, and adds made-up embellishments (lies) to it, for dramatic effect.

Just after President Obama took office, a Department of Homeland Security report recognized that the combination of a tanking economy together with the election of America's first African-American president might trigger right-wing violence. The report was later withdrawn, given the headwinds of conservative criticism.
