Liberal Pundit: Fox Newss On-Air Product Consistent With Its Off-Air Misogyny and Racism



Just as its exceedingly tricky to know the dancer from the dance, its awfully hard to separate Fox News Channels program content from its hypermacho, litigation-generating workplace. That was the word from Talking Points Memo editor and publisher Josh Marshall in a Friday post. In Marshalls words, FNC on the air and FNC in the office are almost umbilically tiedIf youve watched Fox for years and you found that it wasnt a hotbed of sexual harassment, pervasive racist attitudes and a generalized sixty-something faux-bro alpha culture, youd have to think you had been scammed, that the big screen talent were somehow hypocrites and frauds. It would be like finding out that Chris Hayes was a major libertarian who fundedthe Cato Institute and Club for Growth or that Joy Reid had secretly been advising Donald Trump throughout the 2016 election cycle.

Journos Respond Harshly Profanely to Bret Stephens' First New York Times Column



On Friday (appearing in Saturday's print edition), the New York Times published its first column by Bret Stephens, the former Wall Street Journal columnist recently hired as a "conservative" voice. Its theme was that the political "hyperbole" about climate change doesn't match the underlying science even if one trusts the underlying science. That alone was enough to send journalists into unhinged and often profane orbit.

Actress Gets Out Brown and White Eggs and Frying Pan to Expose 'The Drug War's Racism'



The liberal site Slate was delighted witha new video message about the "war on drugs"produced by Green Point Creative. Its not the same classic anti-drug message she famously delivered back in the 90s, though shes still got her frying pan and some eggs. But now it's about how the brown eggs get smashed by drug laws, not the white eggs. Get it?

Bozell Graham Column: Reagan's Lesson for Trump



It's something most conservatives a year ago would not have imagined: the opening act of Donald Trumps agenda in the White House contains a real whiff of Ronald Reagan. To be sure, there's plenty the Reaganites won't like -- talk of trillion-dollar federal building campaigns, taxing business at the border, etc. -- but there's plenty to applaud as well. Historian Craig Shirley has written another book on Reagan's political career, and he might have some thoughts on what Trump can do to succeed.

On MSNBC Schiff Empty-Handed On Trump-Russia Investigation Results



The mainstream media is starting to notice that there have been absolutely no results in the House (or Senate) Trump-Russia collusion investigations. One of those journalists impatient for results is BBC World News America anchor Katty Kay who asked the ranking Democrat of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, on the April 28 Morning Joe why there seems to be no progress in their investigation. All Schiff could deliver in reply wasa meaningless word filibuster that revealed nothing in an attempt to divert attention away from the fact that so farthe investigation is a big fat flop.

NPR Talk Host: Allowing Ann Coulter on Campus Compared to Harry Potter 'Dark Arts' Class



NPR's new morning talk show -- out of D.C. station WAMU-FM -- is called 1A, for theFirst Amendment. So it would be embarrassing if the show came out against freedom of speech. On Wednesday, the show devoted an hour to Ann Coulter's canceled speechat the University of California in Berkeley. Host Joshua Johnson defended free speech, but the guests and social-media messages tilted toward the Left.

Johnson asked leftist professor Angus Johnston of the City University of New York: "But isnt teaching students how to debate the Ann Coulters of the world part of the function of a university, I mean, its kind of like, you know, You have to take Defense Against the Dark Arts to graduate?"''
