    Heritage Mourns Loss of William Safire

    The Washington political scene has lost one of its best minds with the death of William Safire. I first met Bill almost 40 years ago, when he was writing speeches in the Nixon White House and I worked on Capitol Hill. He later moved on to write for The New … More

    Iran Nuclear Revelations Expose Continued Iranian Lies

    The Obama Administration made a bombshell revelation on the eve of the G-20 summit about Iran’s continued lying about its nuclear program.

    Krugman Wrong on Cap and Trade Costs

    Paul Krugman blasted opponents of cap and trade and The Heritage Foundation in his New York Times column today, saying: So where do the apocalyptic warnings about the cost of climate-change policy come from?

    This Monday the Senate voted 83 to 7 to strip funding for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) from this year’s housing and transportation appropriation bill.

    Morning Bell: Media Watchdog Has No Bark

    In the age of Obama, the media formerly known as mainstream can remind one of 19th century British literature.

    No New Trade Battle, Just Old Ones

But recent Chinese moves are neither new nor particularly important. The intervention in trade is long-standing; recent … More

    N.Y. Times: Sotomayor Ignores Inconvenient Laws

    In its editorial today endorsing Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination to the Supreme Court, the New York Times makes a bizarre claim that, if true, is extremely troubling. Sotomayor, the paper claims, has not only “repeatedly displayed the empathy” espoused by President Obama, but gone a step further: “She has shown … More

    New York Times Reports Half The Story in Afghanistan

    On today’s front page, the New York Times goes to every effort to recreate the narrative of Mai-Lai in Vietnam, only this time in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, they do so with only half the story. This much we think we know: One night last week, American forces in the middle of … More

    The Story of Lies: Greenpeace in Your Kid's School

    In case you weren’t reading the New York Times front page today, we wanted to point you to an especially disturbing story. The Times wrote about The Story of Stuff, “a 20-minute video about the effects of human consumption, [which] has become a sleeper hit in classrooms across the nation.” What … More
