the press made no claims to fair reporting Not at all. A book, "Scurrilous Scribblers", describes their calumny. But, since multiple periodicals overlapped regions, readers knew what they were buying. And, unlike modern-day readers, they were shrewd enough to figure it out for themselves. Of course, nowadays we have schools to teach students that journalists have integrity, even when they don’t.

Dump her while you can. Elections have consequences.

On the way downtown I heard Trump making complete sense with every point. On the way to an appointment, I heard Joe Biden lying through his teeth with every point. Biden was blowing smoke with rhetorical blather. Anyone who heard that would believe Joe Izuzu. Anyone who is still a Democrat needs remediation.

It was eye opening. :) More likely eye closing. :)

Mrs. sbw and I spend every Thursday babysitting our 6-month-old grandson. Indeed, Soylent. All ours. The smile alone is worth the price of admission.

Do parents no longer encourage/want their children to wait until marriage to have sex? Actually, some of us wish that the 1950s had been a little different than they were.

ccgirl, a friend in college (1968-9) who talked with mea about the possibility, committed suicide. Since then I have advised those who discuss it that, rather than do it, better to change the previous assumptions thought to be unchangeable and start off refreshed and different. No use in wasting the only time you are given by feeling bad or doing the same things expecting a different result.

I think I want to mess with them somehow. Boris, just telling the truth seems to mess with AP.

What standard would justify the mainstream media reporting claims by Vindman or Fiona Hill but not reporting Bobulinski? The Associated Press had nothing about Bobulinski's interview on Tucker Carlson.

AP just ran an article on Justice Thomas wife. She attended the Barrett swearing in. AP headlined that she, a conservative activist, put "unsupported" claims on her Facebook page. I replied to Julie Pace on Twitter: @sbwTweet — You mean claims unsupported by @AP? I don’t doubt it. Unsubstantiated? That’s another question. There is more evidence for some of these claims than what AP repeated ad nauseam about @realDonaldTrump and @GenFlynn. And it’s funny how AP goes dark when certain news appears.

With no journal willing to publish or review the Dutch mask study We are approaching the scholasticism of the Middle Ages. It will crumble, much the same way.

For some reason the Associated Press left out Mitch McConnell’s rebuttal to Democrat Chuck Schumer’s closing during the Amy Coney Barrett Senate debate. We felt our readers deserved the news: "Before the vote, Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer decried the process used to approve her and claimed she could undo legislation on immigration and health care. "Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took Schumer to task, relating the 50-year history of Democratic efforts to control the nomination process including Joe Biden's 1992 refusal to fill a seat, pioneering using the filibuster of judicial candidates, the elimination of the 60-vote rule by then Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid, and now considering court packing by increasing the number of justices. "'They want the smartest leftist justices to make the decisions for the rest of us,' Mitchell said, claiming that is why nominations have taken on an 'outsized combative atmosphere.' "Mitchell pointed out that no rules were broken in the process. 'We exercised the power given by the American people within the rules of the Senate and the Constitution.' "He said of Democrats, 'They now see legitimate defeat as an oxymoron.' He chided Schumer for last year threatening multiple justices by name. "He denounced 'all attempts to apply improper pressure on courts' and 'on the Senate by adding new states.' He noted, 'This isn't separation of power, it is a hostage situation.' "Near the end of his rebuttal to Schumer, Mitchell observed, 'If Democrats scorch the ground rules of Senate they could damage the country forever.' "Mitchell concluded that we, 'now take steps to fill court with excellence rather than a grab for power.'"

Mitch Mcconnell just chewed Schumer and his Democrat colleagues new a**holes.

Schumer, in a typical Democrat fashion, leaves out that it was Democrat Harry Reid who ran roughshod over Senate rules and caused Mitch McConnell to advise Democrats they would regret their actions.

Consistency, honor, fairness, principle? As if Democrats have any of those.

Republicans will never get their credibility back, Schumer claims ... to say nothing of Democrat credibility.

I didn’t realize that Chuck Schumer was prescient, able to predict how Barrett would decide.

Can anyone here wink with either eye? How about two of the three? [Sure beats hand-wringing about the election.]

Brian Stelter @brianstelter We had to make multiple changes today to fit in a newsmaker: The exec editor of The AP. Yes, I wanted to book you a month ago, and hope we can still have that conversation. As you know, TV booking is complicated and ever-changing! But there's no conspiracy afoot. @sbwTweet Reply: .@brianstelter of @CNN, do you mean the @AP that I have to edit every day because they consider reporters’ opinions to be news? The @AP that inserts adjectives & verbs that color the story? The @AP that inserts clauses that do not fairly report all the facts? That @AP? #RealNews
