THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS: AHMED MOHAMED COMPLICITOR

Ken Berwitz  For two weeks now, the Dallas Morning Newshas championed ahmed mohamed\’s case – sympathizing with his plight, talkingabout islamophobia and, in general, pretending that this hoax – let me say itagain louder:  THIS HOAX – is real.  It is a measure of the power of the press- or just how selectively responses are cherry-picked, that when the...

CHUCK TODD\’S HILLARY “ANALYSIS”

Ken Berwitz How could a chief political correspondent, and host of animportant Sunday morning show, get things so wrong? On this morning\’s Today Show, a new NBC/Wall St. Journalpoll was released, which showed that preference for Hillary Clinton amongDemocrat voters had fallen to 42%, while Bernie Sanders – whom, just monthsago, relatively few even heard of, let alone would vote for...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Yesterday I talked about the resurrection (some might say exhumation) of John Podesta, James Carville and Lanny Davis, all older, all tireder and staler appearing, and all working hard to get Hillary Clinton into the White House. Well, guess what:  the king of them all – looking just as much older, tireder and staler as the others – has been trotted...

HILLARY\’S TANGLED WEB (CONT.)

Ken Berwitz You\’re not going to believe this one.  Not even knowing that it\’s Hillary Clinton we\’re talking about. Excerpted from Steve Guest\’s blog at dailycaller.com: Hillary Clinton,appearing on “Meet the Press” Sunday, could not guarantee that the FBI is notgoing to find more emails that should have been turned over earlierbecause during...

MILKING A HOAX FOR ALL IT\’S WORTH

Ken Berwitz Let\’s start with the fact that ahmed mohamed\’s home-built clock was a hoax.  He didn\’t build a thing, he took the casing off a Radio Shack Micronta unit and put it in a case…which – not coincidentally, it seems clear – made it look like a bomb. Little wonder that when he brought it to school the folks there were alarmed.  Fearing it...

HILLARY\’S TANGLED WEB: THE WEAVING CONTINUES

Ken Berwitz Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive:  Sir Walter Scott From the Associated Press – via Scott Johnson\’s latest piece at powerlineblog.com: The Obama administration has discovered a chain of emailsthat Hillary Rodham Clinton failed to turn over when she provided what she saidwas the full record of work-related correspondence as...

IS A TRUMP BOYCOTT HURTING FOX?

Ken Berwitz I don\’t have a “silliest supposition of the week” series.  But if I did, this would be the current winner. According to Gabriel Sherman, of the (leftward, Fox News-hating) New York Magazine, Fox News President Roger Ailes is meeting with Donald Trump to get him to lift his boycott of Fox News shows….the boycott having been started because Trump did not...

UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI – COLUMBIA: SEEKING OUT RACISM

Ken Berwitz Did you know that the University of Missouri\’s Columbia campus is a seething hotbed of racism? Neither did I.  But, based on two articles in the school\’s newspaper, apparently some students have convinced themselves that it is. Let me start by enumerating the entire range of racism described in the first article, published a week and a half ago, and the...

A WHINE FROM HILLARY\’S 4H CLUB

Ken Berwitz This whine – and it is a sad, lame one – comes from John Podesta, the old leftist Hillary Clinton resurrected to run her “Hillary For America” group: “If anyone else faced the constant barrage of insults andattacks that Hillary endures everyday, they would quickly and happily squirrelaway in a cabin hidden somewhere in the Rockies. Not Hillary. Her...

HILLARY CLINTON: WHY PEOPLE DON\’T TRUST HER

Ken Berwitz Why don\’t people trust Hillary Clinton.  This could be an ongoing series, couldn\’t it?  Maybe I\’ll make it one. From politico.com\’s “playbook” for September 25th: CLINTON CAMPAIGN “Friends& Allies Talking Points” sent yesterday – “Guidance on BloombergReport that FBI Has Restored Clinton\’s...

THE NEW YORK TIMES: HEADLINE EDITORIAL

Ken Berwitz Maybe I\’m old fashioned.  But I always thought that the news section was supposed to be for neutral news stories, and the editorial and op-ed pages was supposed to be where opinions were expressed. Well, evidently I was mistaken.  Either that or the New York Times is no longer a newspaper. Here is the headline, and first paragraph, of Jennifer Steinhauer\’s...

UNREAL RACISM

Ken Berwitz As regular readers know, I have, for year, put up a series titled “Real Racism”, which exposes instances where people are treated differently in some way – usually in a very negative way – based on their race. Well, here is an instance of what, for lack of a better description, I will call “Unreal Racism” – i.e. an instance where a racial...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s quote comes to us from the execrable debbie wasserman schultz (she gets no capitalization in this blog entry – you\’ll understand why in a moment). schultz wins Quote Of The Day “honors” for what I hope will be the single most tasteless political attack of the 2016 campaign.   It seems that Republican presidential hopeful, and fellow...
