#NeverTrump silver linings

For those of us in the Never Trump wing of the GOP, Tuesday night was a living nightmare. From day one, we never thought this day would actually come, even though our sense of dread grew with each Trump victory. By the time Tuesday night’s call in Indiana came, I had already consigned myself to it. I think I went through the five stages of grief this last week, knowing what was coming. I’ve now come to acceptance. The GOP nominee is someone I, and many others, can’t support. We…

The CNN-Democratic debate was a media love-fest

Tuesday’s debate between Democratic presidential candidates showcased the inherent difficulties this next presidential election will face. Similar to the last two elections and the current Obama Administration receiving a mainstream media pass on almost every difficult issue or controversial decision, so this Democratic election cycle began with a left-leaning media love-fest.

Eight Stories Getting More News Coverage Than Justin Miller

You’d think that the story of a sitting member of the Utah House of Representatives embezzling a good $34K from one of the state’s brightest political stars would end up creating an endless stream of front page news.

But, apparently, other…

A single picture is worth a thousand perspectives.

Earlier today, I was reading more about the situation on the Bundy Ranch in Nevada. Trying to find information about what exactly was going on, and see what everyone was upset about. While doing that I cam across several different stories about the same situation. To me it just shows how different news outlets view the same situation, with the same people. I am not saying anyone is right or wrong, or that anyone else with a different view is biased in one way or another. But the headlines from…
