The Liberal Media

The Romney campaign’s self-delusion was only possible because of its MSM enablers.

Even now, our understanding of that fraught moment is built on falsehoods and myths.

After the first presidential debate, the media follow-up focused almost exclusively on its theatrics and the implications for the “horse race.”

How right-wing Jewish organizatons misrepresent both the views and the influence of American Jews.

As Mitt Romney’s campaign descends into increasingly indefensible terrain, a few right-wing stalwarts are still standing by their man.

Afflicted by the elite journalistic disease of “on-the-one-handism,” the MSM’s supposed arbiters of truth—like the Post’s Glenn Kessler—can't make sense of this presidential contest.

How the pundit class is turning a right-wing ideologue into a bold intellectual—and framing the election.

No wonder the public remains so misinformed, as bigfoot pundits not only whitewash Republican extremism but paint Obama’s soggy centrism in false hues as its ideological equivalent.
