Once Again the Media Is Falling for the False Equivalence Argument

Well that was nice while it lasted. For a couple of days, the media was all over the story of Jeff Sessions’ meetings with the Russian ambassador; that is after they spent pretty much all of Wednesday falling over themselves complementing Der Führer on his State of the Union Address. For the last time, pin-heads,

Why the Press and Media Can’t Back Down

Over the last few weeks, something really extraordinary and, from my perspective, unique has been happening. As this president and his administration continue to lie and deflect about their reprehensible conduct, the press and the media have stood their ground and held them accountable.
