Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see the Department of Homeland Security taking a thorough, pro-active approach to securing the 2018 midterms. They also slam MSNBC’s Katy Tur for being the latest liberal journalist to suggest Americans frame the gun debate as, “Kids or guns, what do you value more?” Alexandra strongly calls out the intellectual dishonesty and rampant hypocrisy involved in that approach from liberals. They get a kick out Newsweek suggesting that internet bots are really responsible for the ouster of Minnesota Sen. Al Franken, as opposed to his own inappropriate behavior. And they pause to remember the life and legacy of evangelist Billy Graham.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to Bowe Bergdahl pleading guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, glad that justice is being done and not being swept under the rug in the case of the soldier who left his unit in Afghanistan and was returned by the Obama administration in exchange for five top level Taliban detainees. They also groan as Iraqi forces are now fighting with the Kurds over territory in northern Iraq when they’re supposed to be finishing off ISIS. And they unload on Newsweek for its reckless reporting, including such gems as interviewing pedophile and former House Speaker Dennis Hastert about politics and declaring the Family Research Council a hate group.

In the grand scheme of things, it’s just another piece of Twitchy fodder. Something crazy gets published, conservative Twitter reacts with mockery and a big belly laugh, and we all move on with our day. Chances are, most of us don’t even bother reading the actual story, on the reasonable principle of not giving such […]

The disgraceful tweet by a Newsweek senior writer that flatly called Ted Cruz a Nazi has been well denounced here. Yet the writer in subsequent tweets seems unaware of how shamefully he has behaved. Turner Classic Movies recently showed the 1955 French documentary “Night and Fog,” about Auschwitz and all those related Nazi horrors. It […]

Alexander Nazaryan, a staff writer at Newsweek, posted this tweet Wednesday: He’s since taken it down and apologized to Cruz’ supporters. But he’s refused to apologize to Republican Party Presidential candidate and Senator Ted Cruz (R, TX), having already “identified” him: More

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Newsweek Wants To Tell You About Those Rotten Evangelicals

 

explorerIt’s Christmastide, so it’s time once again for Newsweek to flex its theological muscles and slam Christians for their intolerable reading of the Bible. It’s a cheap trick. It’s easy to throw bombs at Christians. They’ll refute your claims, but they are not going to strap on a vest of explosives.
I’ve read the article, “The Bible: So Misunderstood it’s a Sin,” and — as a favor to you, and to help you preserve time to prepare your New Year’s Eve — I’m offering up time that would otherwise have been completely wasted (as opposed to mostly wasted) to fill you in on what you already know.

In 2013, Newsweek’s balance sheet showed the magazine in fiscal bankruptcy, so it’s little surprise that the magazine now demonstrates its moral bankruptcy by publishing an article bashing Evangelical Christians for their alleged Biblical ignorance and — naturally — for their refusal to stand with the current zeitgeist. No sensible person will pay attention to, or pay for, the magazine. However, plenty of senseless readers will glom onto the end-of-the-year edition, eager to read something that bucks up what they are sure they already know. Newsweek needs those readers and will fill them full of what they need just to stay afloat.
