Tweet Swarming Julie Kelly from the Right

The Hammerjack website ain’t the place where I normally post stuff like this, but due to circumstances beyond my control, it’ll have to do.  So here goes!

My Twitter timeline has been ugly over the last 24 hours—and before you go saying, “Dude, where you been?” let me stipulate that it’s been uglier than usual, making me feel like a kid hiding upstairs in his room while mom and dad have a fight.

It started off when David French from National Review ...

The Dangers of Googlethink

Posted by:

As a child of the 80s, the definitive historical event of my young life was the destruction of the space shuttle Challenger.  To this day, I can remember exactly the circumstances when I heard the news:  I was a senior in high school, sitting in Ms. Figley’s anatomy and physiology class, when Mr. Davis–a revered teacher who had been at the school for what seemed like forever–opened the door and told all of us, “The space shuttle just blew up.”  My classmates ...

With all the furor surrounding the Wikileaks dumps of John Podesta’s emails, most of the energy on this side of the pond seems to be spent on finding some kind of a smoking gun–proof positive of anything scandalous, really, that could be used to either club his client Hillary Clinton or provide further proof of how much the “news” media are in the tank for her.  Over in the UK, meanwhile, Thomas Frank has taken to the pages of The Guardian ...

Tripping the Fraud Fantastic

Posted by:

With the “news” media getting their knickers all in a swivet over Donald Trump’s tweeting over a rigged election, Jim Geraghty over at NRO has a pretty reasonable piece on the reality of voter fraud, and how there’s scant evidence to prove that it’s widespread enough to tip a presidential election.  While I agree with the gist of his analysis, I do think that he misses the larger point–one that comes into pretty stark relief when you take ...

Reap the Wild Media

Posted by:

Michael Goodwin of the New York Post has an interesting piece today about how the New York Times has pretty much sold out for the sake of taking Donald Trump down.  Granted, the Post is a competitor to the Times and definitely has a more rightward slant than the Old Gray Lady, but Goodwin is pretty spot on in his analysis:

Opinions, all uniformly anti-Trump, now ooze from the paper’s every pore, with headlines on front-page “news” articles indistinguishable from daily denunciations on ...
