Bill O’Reilly dropped by the show last night to plug his new “The Last Days of Jesus.”  I asked him about the perennial (and accurate) complaint that MSM ignores the best-selling books of the center-right.  His response, and the response of Politico’s media reporter Dylan Byers, is below.  Not surprisingly, for Byers is fair, Byers concedes the double standard and the bias.  It has operated most obviously against O’Reilly’s books and… [read post]

It’s my understanding that WAPT in Jackson is touting an exclusive interview with former Judge Bobby DeLaughter on tonight’s 10:00 p.m. newscast. Maybe I can stay up late enough to watch it.

We all take the Internet for granted.  Short of a power outage taking down phone lines, cell towers and satellite transmissions, the Internet will always there.

On March 14 and 17, 2014, the Wall Street Journal reported on the decision by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (“NTIA”), part of the Commerce Department, to cede control of… [read post]

Tuesday’s interview with Reince Priebus generated the usual hand wringing on the left when campaign contribution limits come up.  (The transcript of the interview is here.) The last vestige of the ill-fated post-Watergate attempt to control money in politics should fall like the dead tree it is sometime in the next few years, and Priebus was just pointing out that contribution limits distort politics but don’t keep money out of it.  I also like to point out to folks that it was… [read post]
