Trump Claims Another Scalp: ABC Dumps Partnership With Hostile Paper

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is claiming another scalp: getting a hostile newspaper removed from participation in an upcoming Republican debate. ABC News planned to have the Feb. 6 Republican debate at St. Anselm College in Manchester be co-branded with the New Hampshire Union Leader.

Still, it would have lent local New Hampshire character Read more […]

One Person Shows Up To O’Malley Rally, Remains Undecided

Calling a person “she” instead of “ze” could be grounds for a $250,000 fine in New York City under new civil rights guidelines published just before Christmas which ban the “misgendering” of individuals.

An entire school district in Virginia with thousands of students has shut down Friday over the backlash to a lesson that involved students writing the Islamic profession of faith. Cheryl LaPorte, a geography teacher at Riverheads High School in Staunton, was covering the subject of world religions last week when she distributed a homework handout intended to educate students about Islam. Part of the assignment (which LaPorte didn’t create herself) dealt with calligraphy, a popular art in the Read more […]

How The 355 Number Falls Massively Short In Mass Shooting Debate

The Washington Post and several other media outlets made hay after Wednesday’s shooting in San Bernardino by claiming the attack was the 355th mass shooting in the U.S. since the beginning of 2015. The reality is a lot more nuanced. Post reporter Christopher Ingraham doesn’t disguise the argument he’s trying to make. “Speaking after the Colorado Springs shooting last week, President Obama urged Americans to not let this type of violence ‘become normal,’” Ingraham writes. “But Read more […]
