The media elite, which eternally predicts the tea party and the Christian conservatives will destroy the Grand Old Party, could only see better days ahead for Democrats with a self-described socialist contender in the race.

Macklemore is the stage name of a white rapper from Seattle named Ben Haggerty. He and his publicists are currently trying to convince the hip-hop press and the music media to notice the greatness of his new nine-minute song "White Privilege II."

The results in the Iowa caucuses are a rebuke to the notion that the national media have all the influence over America's voters.

For a conservative, perhaps nothing in popular culture is more amusing than watching leftist Hollywood beat itself up with the battle cry "Oscars So White." For a group of people that habitually makes egregious displays of "progressive thought" at awards shows, this fight over putative racism is as entertaining as the movies themselves.

Every allegation ever made against Hillary Clinton "falls by the wayside," because the media always drop the ball.

Sean Penn has long been the poster boy for the Hollywood left, another one of those overpaid dilettantes who constantly berate the country that's given him international fame and incredible wealth.

To hear the press tell it, the Republican Party has gone so far to the right that Ronald Reagan wouldn't recognize it. But the Democratic Party is at this moment on the cusp of forsaking Hillary Clinton for a self-described socialist who wants America to be exactly like Sweden. So precisely which party is making a historic tilt toward a new extreme?

David Bowie died to universal acclaim, even from a star-struck Vatican newspaper.

New York Times columnist David Brooks poses as a moderate who never stoops to being crabbily doctrinaire. He is the very model of a PBS/NPR "conservative" — defining conservatism in a very 1950s way, as wearing dreary gray suits and liking Ike and Dick Nixon. Go along, and get along with the liberal elites.

The credibility of feminism was shredded by the Clintons in 1990s. Nothing's changed in 2016.

Network news outlets conduct their own polls. They also bury the poll results when they don't like them. On PBS on Jan. 1, liberal pundit Mark Shields brought some very bad news for the left. The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found 73 percent say they want the next president to take a different approach from President Obama's.

Hillary Clinton has slammed Donald Trump for having a "penchant for sexism," but the Clinton-adoring media are acting shocked and dismayed that Trump would be so rude as to respond that she ought to look at her own husband when it comes to sexism and a "record of women abuse." Reporters are treating this as a sketchy allegation, or if true, a remarkably impolite way to campaign.

Offending the audience is part of CNN's ratings gambit. On Dec. 13, as many Christians celebrated the third Sunday of Advent and rejoiced over the incarnation of Jesus Christ, CNN was celebrating Satan. Literally.

Americans are infatuated with celebrities, but unfortunately for the left, that love doesn't translate into a popular landslide for the liberal point of view. Celebrity millionaires love to pose as compassionate citizens for the cameras, and it doesn't matter if anything changes.

Barack Obama wanted 15 minutes of airtime on Sunday night, the most heavily watched night of the week, to speak to the nation about the San Bernardino shooting. It was appropriate for the president to request it, and for the networks to grant it, but everyone knew he would say nothing new of substance. And he didn't. And in so not doing, he wowed the press again.

The media have harbored anti-religious bigotry for years. But now it's turned vicious. This tragedy drew out liberal animus against those offensive "prayer people" who won't back gun control.

Three people were killed and nine were injured when Robert Lewis Dear opened fire at a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. After capturing the shooter, the authorities resisted identifying a motive for Dear's attacks, because they didn't have one. But the liberal media did.

Some pro-abortion feminists recently denounced Hollywood for not producing TV and movie plots wherein the unborn baby is dispatched with zero remorse. It doesn't get more extremist than this.

The Bible is the best-selling book of all time, but The New York Times would have to consign it to the ghetto for "Advice, How-To and Miscellaneous" books. That's what "The Gray Lady" has done to David Limbaugh and his new book, "The Emmaus Code: Finding Jesus in the Old Testament."

Religion and violence was a pretty constant combination 500 years ago, but what relevance should that have in the 21st century? Liberals want to absolve all Muslims for yesterday's massacre by condemning all Christians for the 1500s? That, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call a stretch.
