Lying on Laura Ingraham

- The Washington Times

Fox News host Laura Ingraham sparked massive backlash around the country when she opened a monologue by calling for the lynching of all black people, the gunning down of illegals at the border, the ripping of little brown-faced babies from their mommas -- "not gringos," she called them -- and the chicken cage incarceration of any documented citizen that couldn't produce proof of membership in either the KKK or the NRA. Oh wait. She didn't really. My bad. But in the twisted minds of the left, she might as well have.

Title VII solution for social media censorship

All this social media censorship talk that's been fueling conservative angst in recent months has had the distressing effect of putting the ideological right exactly where the left wants it -- in a regulatory box with nowhere to go. The solution? The ideological right needs to create a new battlefield. How about Title VII of the Civil Rights Act?

Censorship has no part in telling the American story

- The Washington Times

First came Alex Jones, and the outright booting of his Infowars news product from several top social media sites. Then came headlines of Sebastian Gorka, facing a so-called "soft ban" at Fox News. But really, radio rock star Michael Savage has them both beat. He's been banned by Britain; booted from various markets. And all that -- despite the fact he's a top ratings draw, a major market asset, a proven voice who's weathered many a storm.

Sen. Chris Murphy, a classic case of what's wrong with politicians

- The Washington Times

Sen. Chris Murphy just made national headlines for suggesting that social media giants like Facebook and YouTube shouldn't stop at Alex Jones and Infowars, but rather go forward and censor, censor, censor until all signs of objectionable speech are removed from the Internet.

Alex Jones winning: He's now more popular than ever

- The Washington Times

Alex Jones of Infowars has been booted from YouTube, Apple, Spotify and Facebook for what the tech giants consider his rampant hate speech. And with that, Jones has become the face of the censorship fight. This seems counterproductive to those who would silence him, yes?

Fox News -- sorry CNN -- wins big in trust test with watchers

- The Washington Times

Fox News -- sorry CNN -- has come in second, behind the BBC, in terms of winning the trust of American television news watchers, according to a new analysis.
