Playing False with Planned Parenthood is Damaging Republicans

Republicans have chosen to double down on defunding Planned Parenthood, even by shutting down government, if necessary. But is their crusade yielding the desired result? Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina just found out the hard way that, as media strategist Shawna Vercher put it, “Lying matters more to people than anyone thought.” Author and commentator Anita Finlay agreed, stating that “Fiorina has been caught lying about

Corporate Owned Media Slanting Election Coverage on Purpose

The corporate owned media is desperate to retain control of our electoral process, crafting meme after meme to influence voter thinking so they can once again pick our President. Despite their efforts, Hillary Clinton still leads nationally by an average (and in some case, by a minimum) of at least 20 points. You’d never know it if you got your news via click-bait headlines. In

Sham Benghazi Committee Telegraphs GOP’s 2016 Electoral Problems – Updated

Rising Republican “young gun” Kevin McCarthy was a shoo-in to replace John Boehner as Speaker of the House until his boast on FOX News that Republicans’ creation of this “special Benghazi committee” was dragging down Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers.

Hillary Clinton’s Plan to Tame Big Banks Shows She’s Ready to Lead

Kudos to Vox’s Matthew Iglesias for his integrity in reporting Hillary Clinton’s prescription to regulate big banks’ risky behavior. Iglesias notes that while the press is likely to ignore it (most have), Clinton’s policy addresses “a question of urgent importance to the economic welfare of everyone in the country.” In pertinent part, her plan is to “charge a graduated risk fee every year on the

In the days since House Speaker hopeful Kevin McCarthy bragged to FOX’s Sean Hannity the real reason for the Republican driven Benghazi investigative committee – to drive down Presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers – McCarthy has unsuccessfully attempted to walk back his “inartful” statements. His irrational Hillary-hate coupled with Republicans’ abject terror of running against the accomplished Clinton compelled his boast in the first

Big Media Ignores Concerns of Average Americans to Obsess about Hillary’s Emails

A new article from Tom Watson and Peter Daou shares the poignant struggles of average Americans who care much less about the manufactured media stink over Hillary Clinton’s emails than they care what she and other presidential candidates will do to lead this country.

Will John Boehner Stepping Down Expose the GOP Crazy?

House Speaker John Boehner shocked Capitol Hill and big media alike when he announced that he will relinquish his gavel at the end of October. Now, as members of Congress scramble to see who will take over as one of the most influential voices in the country, media strategist Shawna Vercher says “the GOP is in danger of exposing all of its dysfunction.” The trend

Open Letter To The New York Times’ Public Editor — Updated

I must add to the litany of complaints you have received regarding The New York Times’ coverage of Secretary Clinton. The pattern exhibited by your newspaper goes beyond errors in reporting and gives the appearance of a systematic campaign to derail her candidacy.  The list is long: The faux email “scandal,” accusing her of breaking laws not in place until 20 months after she stepped down
