If there is anything I learned from the Greg Gianforte debacle it’s that a significant portion of the American electorate not only distrust the media, they downright loathe the media. Distrust of the media is nothing new, and I happen to agree that much of the distrust stems from their sometimes sloppy and lazy work.

The crux of his retort to Ted Cruz’s “New York values” remark centered on the fact that Buckley lived in New York (actually, he lived both there and in Connecticut). Now, the wake of National Review‘s “Against Trump” issue, Trump has argued that Buckley would be ashamed of the decline of his | Read More »

Then an article by Katherine Timpf at National Review titled “Stop Defending Phil Robertson – You’re Embarrassing Yourself” popped up as well and I started | Read More »
