Mainstream Media on Townhall

John Hawkins - Sat Feb 9

Starting in the sixties there was an explosion of children born out-of-wedlock and kids who don't grow up in two parent families fare more poorly percentage wise on just about any and every scale imaginable strong including substance abuse, teenage pregnancies, suicide rates, criminality and homelessness. ... more

Derek Hunter - Sun Dec 23

Was there anything about the Sandy Hook massacre the media got right on the day it happened? In their rush to be first, they ignored their obligation to be right. Nearly every detail they disseminated Friday was wrong, even down to the name of the killer. ... more

Oliver North - Fri Dec 21

Five years ago, this annual Christmas column was written while our Fox News "War Stories" team was embedded with the U.S. Army's 3rd Infantry Division south of Baghdad. ... more

Diana West - Fri Dec 14

Some thoughts about Army Pfc. Bradley Manning's pretrial hearing, which concluded this week. ... more

Michael Youssef - Sun Dec 9

The behavior of the western media can only be described as cowardly. That news is not going to surprise any honest, fair-minded person. Anyone can see the glaring spinelessness in their reporting (or lack thereof) on the beleaguered freedom-loving souls in Egypt today. ... more

Marvin Olasky - Wed Nov 28

The second book of Kings in the Old Testament is a usefully depressing history on national decline. It starts with fire coming down from heaven to convince a king, and Elijah ascending to heaven via chariots of fire. It ends with the former king of Judah taken into captivity and dependent on the ruler of Babylon, who condescends to give him an allowance. ... more

Ann-Marie Murrell - Sun Nov 18

I’ve known for years that the mainstream media news was not only dead but had never really existed other than as a political tool for the progressive agenda. Still, I had hopes that a story as huge as Benghazi would cut across political lines and get the attention it deserved. ... more

Oliver North - Sat Nov 17

For two months, the so-called mainstream media all but ignored the Sept. 11 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in four dead Americans. ... more

Victor Davis Hanson - Wed Nov 14

The second-term curse goes like this: A president (e.g., Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, etc.) wins re-election, but then his presidency implodes over the next four years -- mired in scandals or disasters such as Watergate, Iran-Contra, Monica Lewinsky, the Iraqi insurgency and Hurricane Katrina. ... more

Andrew Marcus - Sat Nov 10

Many of us woke up the morning after the election in a daze and I imagine quite a few of us thought, okay…we lost, it is a new day…WWBD-What Would Breitbart Do? None of us can speak conclusively for him, but many of us were so deeply influenced and impacted by his leadership that in different ways his ideas live on inside of us. ... more

Lisa De Pasquale - Thu Nov 8

For the next few weeks pundits, political consultants, activists and everyone else will be offering their reasons for why Republicans not only lost the presidential election, but several important Senate and House seats. Republicans of every stripe lost, so I don’t see this as a tea party versus the establishment scenario. People smarter and with more experience in electoral politics will talk about the candidates’ flaws and demographic realities. However, in seeing the exit polls and talking to friends who are not politically-inclined, one thing became clear to me: The media defined this election. ... more

New York, NY - Fri Nov 2

O'Reilly rips the media's coverage of the terrorist attack. ... more

Paul Greenberg - Thu Nov 1

The policies Mitt Romney advocates might be quite new after four years of this administration, but his language is a golden oldie. By now, the retro phrases that punctuate his vocabulary have acquired a name of their own: Mittisms. ... more

Guy Benson - Mon Oct 29

America - Mon Oct 29

The Fox News anchor has harsh words for the media for largely ignoring Libya. ... more
