Biden Issues Media Marching Orders. Media Comply. Again.

Rod Thomson Joe Biden’s presidential campaign has issued a fall-in-line directive to journalists, demanding that they report that the corruption claims against him have been debunked and call them conspiracy theories.

How The Climate Media Subverts The Climate Debate

Rod Thomson There is not a worse enemy of rightly understanding climate change, the causes, the threat and the cost-benefit of remediations than virtually every single media member that covers climate change.

AOC’s Fundamental Ignorance Vs The Alternate Twitter Universe

Rod Thomson Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is by now well-known for getting facts wrong and displaying jaw-dropping ignorance from economics to trains to laws. But only well-known in one universe, the one reported by right-of-center news and commentary outlets and their consumers.
