Elon Musk buys Twitter

One way newspapers push a particular narrative is mentioning the race of a perpetrator right up front or way in the back. Or not at all. A study was done looking at major newspaper articles going back 2 years and guess what they found. (You can probably guess, actually.)

There was quite a backlash to Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter. Thing is, it really brought out who really is for free speech and who isn’t.

Disney dipped it toe into the political waters, but it may be a bit to hot for them.

Ron DeSantis signs the Parental Rights in Education bill

Well I’m finally back! We’ll see how the release schedule changes, but it’s good to get back on the saddle again.

Joe Biden was supposed to be the adult in the room when it came to being President, but it doesn’t look that way. In one of his worst gaffes, he seemed to call for regime change in Russia. That’s something the Left told us that Trump would do. (And to call it a gaffe seems to underplay it. Mispronouncing the name of a head of state is a gaffe. This was much worse.)

The NY Times finnaly admitted that the Hunter Biden laptop story was an actual story. Can the NY Post now share that 2-year-old story on Twitter without getting banned?

The Parental Rights in Education Act is now law in Florida. Its critics misnamed it, and they got the effect of the bill just as wrong. If you against this, what does that mean?

Rush Limbaugh, RIP

“Impeachment season 2” is now behind us. I give my review of this shortened season (short due to no investigation episodes and because no witnesses were called).

And one of the greats of talk radio, Rush Limbaugh, has passed away. He was a pioneer in his field, bringing conservative views and explaining them in a way that we could all understand them.

A “personal’ gift?

A boycott turned into a “buy-cot” when what was meant to punish became a way to reward a company.

How about giving a very “personal” gift this year? I’ve got an idea, but just know that I will absolutely not be giving this.

And listener Ryan called 267-CALL-CT-0 and let me know of another news site that gives all sides of an issue.

Illegal immigration trends

When Trump started his term, illegal immigration started to trend down. With Joe Biden the presumptive President-elect, what do you think that trend is doing now?

Politicians make verbal gaffes; it happens all the time. But watch how the media coverage changes depending on the party of the politician.

I’ve found a news source that lets you see how various other sources cover a story based on their bias.

How do you choose?

While the presidential race is still in litigation, things look quite good for Republicans down-ballot. At the very least (assuming good turnout in Georgia for the 2 Senate seat runoffs), Democrats’ more radical agenda items may be stopped.

How do you choose your news channel? Is it that it shows you the slant you want? If so, maybe “news” isn’t what you’re looking for.

So intelligent she doesn’t need notes

Yet another YouTube video was create of some guy claiming to be a doctor and claiming that lockdowns should not be the way we deal with this virus. But this is not just another crank.

The nomination hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett went on last week and they demonstrated the stark difference between how Democrats and Republicans view the role of the courts.

When Facebook and Twitter block posting of an article, there’s clearly something going wrong with social media (and clearly it’s an article worth reading).

Can we have one?

When Barack Obama was elected President, many of us were looking forward to that honest conversation about Race that we had needed for so long. Did we have it, because I don’t remember it, and based on what’s happening today, lots of people don’t either.

The media is supposed to speak truth to power. But what happens when they instead speak slander to a teenager? The answer is that is costs half a billion dollars. And counting.

BE LESS CHIKIN

Chick-fil-A gives away a lot of its profits to charities. Recently, they made an announcement that seems like it was trying to appease those who protest it. I’ll explain my thoughts.

Getting sued for $2 million for exposing the truth is bad enough. Losing your case is worse.

The British Universities and College Union has decided to drop objective truth. If you are lily white and say you’re black, you won’t get an argument from them. We’re losing objective truth in academia.
