Police Fatalities Are Down, But There Is Still A Political ‘War On Police’

A lot of media attention has been given to shootings involving law enforcement, as well as the murder of police officers by criminals.

Fox News Reporter Says He Witnessed A Baltimore Shooting That Never Happened – Seriously

Recently much of the nation’s attention has been focused on what’s been going on in Baltimore surrounding the tragic death of Freddie Gray, the six police officers who’ve now been indicted and the protests, rioting and looting that went on last week. Naturally this means our nation’s media has been fixated on everything that’s been […]

Paul Ryan Pathetically Blames Poverty in Baltimore on Welfare Abuse (Video)

The poster child for just how little Republicans understand about poverty, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), proved once again how deranged the GOP is about impoverished Americans when he suggested that the chaos we recently saw in Baltimore is all linked to a systemic problem tied to ‘lucrative’ welfare programs. “After a 50 year war on […]

Racists Are Losing Their Minds Because Officers Will Be Charged For Killing Freddie Gray

Morgan Freeman Has The Best Response To The Media Coverage Of The Baltimore Riots

There’s an old saying in the media that “if it bleeds, it leads” meaning that if a story has shock value, it goes to the front page or at the beginning of a broadcast. Being a member of the media (which I have a love-hate relationship with), I can vouch for the obvious fact that […]

Jon Stewart Tears Into Ridiculousness Of CNN And The City Of Baltimore (Video)

When it comes to the ongoing violence in Baltimore, I honestly don’t even know what to say anymore.

Republican Rep. Bill Flores Blames Baltimore Riots On Gay Marriage

We Must Stop Allowing The Violent Minority To Represent The Good Majority

Obviously there’s been a lot of talk recently about how the media has the power to push the message they want to push or distort a story based upon what “side” they cover. But the truth is, the mainstream media doesn’t have an “agenda.” Well, okay, Fox News and MSNBC do (at least to a […]

The Baltimore Protests Aren’t Just About Race, They’re About Income Inequality

Whenever a national conversation comes up about race as we are seeing currently with the Baltimore protests, there will inevitably be people who try to derail the dialogue and make the disingenuous claims that there’s an incredible amount of racism and prejudice aimed at white folks as well. These people will bring up anecdotal claims […]
