All of the leftists, haughty intellectuals, and elitists who loathe the Common American would do well to close SplinterNews.com and head on over to the Wall Street Journal op-ed page, where populism lives.
The world has been appalled by the apparent murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Turkish consulate in Istanbul. The Washington Post reported on U.S. intelligence intercepts which claim Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman—that supposed reformer—personally orchestrated a plot to lure Khashoggi into the…
Do you think that anyone in the Trump administration actually, truly cares that Saudi Arabia probably kidnapped, murdered, and disappeared a journalist? I will tell you the answer: no.
Paraphrasing, in my opinion, is a great thing to do when you get an interview with a source who’s saying a lot of words that aren’t super important. New York writer Olivia Nuzzi, who has spent the past year cultivating sources and relationships in the Trump administration, published a very strange story today about…
This is actually, without exaggeration, without sloganeering, how fascism happens.
It doesn’t give me great pleasure to criticize a former colleague, but New York Times columnist Bret Stephens will just not stop writing dogshit pieces excusing himself for supporting something that Donald Trump does, and letting you know that it pains him very much to do so. Today, he’s turned his attention to Brett…
What’s that—a journalism lesson? From Bret Stephens? Yes, please, my anticipation could not be any more sincere!
Last night, Andrew Gillum and Ron DeSantis won the Democratic and Republican primaries for governor in Florida, setting up what will be, for the political press corps, the most easily narrative-ized political race in the country. This shit is really being set up on a tee.
Pittsburgh is about to become the biggest U.S. city without a daily print newspaper, which means it’s a good time to ask ourselves: How are we gonna turn this thing around? It’s a pretty short discussion, actually.
The media coverage of Donald Trump’s reaction to John McCain’s death has been, by and large, extremely dumb. Did he tweet about him enough? Did he call him a great man?????? WHAT ABOUT THE FLAGS????
Leadership: What is he? Are men born, of mothers, blessed with a cloak of leadership, clerics of a sort, draped not in flags but in the aforementioned cloaks of leadership? Or is leadership a mere will-o-the-wisp that blesses men momentarily before flitting away, a phantom, off on wings, slipping bonds, to the land of…
Among the many bitter lessons driven home by Donald Trump’s rise to power is this: the political media, for all of its hand-wringing about impartiality, is extremely susceptible to creating reality, rather than portraying it.
An exclusive first look at The Chapo Guide to Revolution: A Manifesto Against Logic, Facts, and Reason, the forthcoming book by the hosts of the podcast Chapo Trap House.
If you are a racist—or, far more likely, a Very Nice Person who just tolerates and enables racism through inaction—there is absolutely nothing you love more than an opportunity for a good old false equivalence. And today is Bret Stephens’ lucky day!
Before too long, a reporter will become a direct casualty of the Trump era.
Yesterday, the New York Times announced that it had hired Sarah Jeong, who is by all accounts an extremely talented tech reporter, as a new member of its editorial board. Today, Jim Hoft, once accurately called the “dumbest man on the internet” by Media Matters, published a collection of Jeong’s tweets which he deemed…
Here’s a trash piece of content from the New York Times:
There’s a reason David Brooks has such a high-profile perch at the New York Times. It’s because he routinely provides unique insights into our society that other, lesser writers might have missed. Take his latest column, in which he makes a stunning discovery: racism....it’s real.
