The first day of congressional hearings on the radicalization of the American Islamic community (being led by House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Peter T.

With National Public Radio fighting for its reputation and even its life, a member of the leftist network’s Distribution/Interconnection Committee has admitted an interesting truth: Its audience is the white liberal elite. That would be appropriate, given the network's liberal bias, which comes from its elitist white liberal reporters and commentators.
National Public Radio was eagerly anticipating a $5 million donation from the fictitious Muslim Education Action Center, according to the latest secret recording released by Project Veritas, which set up MEAC to sting NPR and in turn caused the resignation of two top officials early this week.

In recent weeks, the American news media have carried numerous reports on the inability of the federal government to stop the flow of firearms from the United States to Mexico.
