Good morning! This is your friendly periodic reminder that we all need a balanced media diet including at least some liberal and conservative media. We all need to hear from those we don’t already agree with, both for the health of our souls (we all need the repeated reminder that reasonable minds can differ, that […]

Desensitization is a concept familiar to most in regard to entertainment. Frequent depictions of violence — so the story goes — desensitize consumers of movies and video games to real violence, weakening natural empathy. Pornography is said to have similar effects on sexual relations. Any doubts or professional insights are welcome. The general concept strikes […]

The weekly news cycles in recent months have been full of silliness and garbage. I don’t know about you, but I am tired of it. It seems that every news broadcast or internet news site has flooded our lives with stories that are nothing more than gossip or people just seeking a bunch of attention […]

Ever feel there are some days it just doesn’t pay to check out the news? Days everything’s so controversial, negative, tragic, or downright seedy eventually you just wanna take a shower and search for some joy and goodness in the world? The message I get is that this world, my country, is in real trouble. […]

My mind is spinning. Which isn’t unusual lately and it’s not because I’m blonde. It’s because of my social media and news intake. I’m at the point where I can’t decide if it’s worth being well-informed any longer due to possibly being over- or mis- informed. I’ve always liked reading the news, mostly because I […]

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club podcast for December 13, 2016 it’s the Bikini Burger Babes edition of the podcast brought to you by SimpliSafe, DonorsTrust and Patriot Mobile.

Today we will talk about Donald Trump’s Labor Secretary nominee Andy Puzder, the CEO of CKE Restaurants and the mind behind the Hardees advertising campaign that puts fat, juicy hamburgers in the hands and mouths of scantily-clad, blue-hot, All American girls (see image). Why does the left view gorgeous women in bikinis as outrageous but Lena Dunham in a bikini as “empowering?” And who, by the way, really believes that raising the minimum wage is a smart idea that will help, for example, unemployed people? Andy Puzder doesn’t!

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America offer a champagne toast to the military and space heroism of John Glenn. They are surprised to see a massive jump in economic optimism since Trump’s election. They shudder as free speech is trampled in the Netherlands. And they unload on Hillary Clinton after she claims fake news is having a major impact on the nation.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America shake their heads as the media and the left go nuts because Donald Trump took a phone call from the president of Taiwan. They also sigh as the media ramp up an hysterical assault on “fake news.” And they note that the Wisconsin recount has done nothing so far – except narrowly increase Trump’s lead.

Most long-time Ricochet members will remember Foxfier. She left a while ago, and we have stayed in touch. Her hubby is in the military so they move around.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. If Dems Will Rig a Debate for Clinton, What Won’t They Do to Win?

 

No matter what the election outcome next week, the media will be big losers. This campaign season has seen much of the media rip off their veneer of objectivity, too often acting instead as an unofficial campaign arm working to elect Hillary Clinton.

The latest revelation — that the town hall moderator overseeing a Democratic primary debate gave CNN contributor Donna Brazile a peek at expected questions, and Brazile then fed Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff a question expected to come up in the primary debate against Bernie Sanders — confirms the too cozy relationships between the politicians and the so-called journalists and officials who are supposed to be helping Americans get unbiased information about candidates.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to reports that Donald Trump’s son-in-law has engaged in talks about Trump starting a cable news channel. They also slam CNN’s Chris Cuomo for falsely telling viewers it’s a crime for them to read Wikileaks emails for themselves so they need to rely on the media to tell them what’s important. And they groan as a third of U.S. millennials believe George W. Bush killed more people than Joseph Stalin did.
