    How the Media Just Created a Powerful New Lie About Trump

    If you’ve been scanning news headlines in the past 24 hours, you might have read that President Donald Trump on Wednesday called immigrants “animals.”

    Here are a few of the headlines:

    “During Roundtable, Trump Calls Some Unauthorized Immigrants ‘Animals’” (NPR)

    “Trump Calls Some Unauthorized Immigrants ‘Animals’ in Rant” (New York Times)

    “Trump ramps up rhetoric on undocumented immigrants: ‘These aren’t people. These are animals.’” (USA Today)

    Then, Mediate did a nice roundup of tweets from news outlets that also promoted the narrative: READ MORE...

    How Tom Wolfe Reinvented Journalism And The Great American Novel

    Oooooh nooooooo! Tom Wolfe has died. The author, known for his whiplash, hyperbolic, stream-of-consciousness style, his observational exactitude, his unerring ability to simultaneously evoke and dissect the Spirit of the Age, his relentless skewering of status, ambition and vanity, and, most of all, his deep empathy for the sometimes tiny, but always present, reservoirs of courage, decency, and love even in the most despicable of human hearts, was eighty-eight. He was the creator of such novels as The Bonfire of the Vanities, A Man in Full, and Back to Blood, as well as era-defining, culture-chronicling nonfiction, such as The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test and The Right Stuff.

  • Why Reagan Remains Highly Relevant Almost 30 Years Later

    Why Reagan Remains Highly Relevant Almost 30 Years Later

    Have you noticed? Liberals are counseling conservatives to be “realistic” and no longer look to Ronald Reagan for answers to the problems of 2018 and beyond.

    After all, they say, he was elected president nearly four decades ago, when the Cold War was still being waged and stagflation was strangling the economy.

    Reagan ideas like supply side economics and maintaining a defense establishment second to none, they say, are no longer relevant in a global economy and in the absence of an aggressive adversary like the Soviet Union. READ MORE...

  • Dispelling Claims by Farm Subsidy Proponents

    Dispelling Claims by Farm Subsidy Proponents

    Agricultural special interests try to make it sound as though touching even one farm subsidy—regardless of how unreasonable the subsidy is—will be the end of agriculture as we know it.

    Using scare tactics, they will assert wild claims without any support, or they will cherry-pick data to provide a misleading picture. For example, they often point to declines from record or near-record highs.

    The following provides answers to some common claims made by the special interests.

  • The Media Coverage Of The Israeli-Palestinian Clash Is Built On Myths

    The Media Coverage Of The Israeli-Palestinian Clash Is Built On Myths

    No matter how often Hamas tells us that many rioters on the Israel-Gaza border are armed, most of the media keeps referring to them as “protesters” and “demonstrators.” No matter how often Hamas acknowledges that these rioters are part of a broader “war,” the media simply won’t report it as such. And no matter how often Palestinian rioters tell reporters they want to “kill” and “burn” Jews inside Israel, left-wing journalists and pundits still frame Israel as the aggressor.

    Today, one senior Hamas official bragged that around 50 to 58 of those the Israeli Defense Forces killed at the Israel-Gaza border “were members of Hamas.” The terrorist group had already boasted that some of those killed were members of its armed wing. At least 24 of those killed during the riots Israel has identified as Hamas members — 11 of them members of the internal security apparatus. All of this is an amazing coincidence, considering how the media has been portraying the situation as a massacre of innocent civilians and children. READ MORE...

  • Our Approach to Severe Mental Illness Endangers Everyone

    Our Approach to Severe Mental Illness Endangers Everyone

    Americans pour billions of their taxpayer dollars into treating mental illness, but the spending isn’t addressing the real crisis.

    Though most media coverage focuses on gun control after shootings take place, few reports pay attention to the increasing problem of untreated, severe mental illness.

    As The Daily Signal previously reported, a massive deinstitutionalization of mentally ill people occurred in the past half-century.

    In an article in National Review, the Treatment Advocacy Center’s executive director, John Snook, writes about how dramatic the move to deinstitutionalization has been: READ MORE...

    This Student Was Ordered to Remove a Bible Verse From Her Graduation Speech. Here’s What Happened.

    Last week, Colorado Mesa University gave the Class of 2018 a lot more than their diplomas to celebrate. The Grand Junction campus finally decided to let Karissa Erickson quote the Bible in her speech. But not without a fight.

    The controversy started a few weeks ago when Erickson, a nursing student, turned in her remarks for graduation. In them, she talks about persevering through adversity. “God always has a purpose,” she wanted to say. “I find comfort in Jesus’ words, and I pass them on to you. John 16:33. ‘These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take comfort, I have overcome the world.’” READ MORE...
