For the Washington Post, free speech from college professors is precious but even the mildest questioners of unproven accusations must be shamed.

It's fascinating when the national media's literary tastemakers make room for the transparently tasteless. Time magazine offered its picks for "The Best New Books to Read Fall 2018," and two ticks down from former first lady Michelle Obama's memoir was "Full Disclosure" by anti-Trump porn star/stripper Stormy Daniels. She "promises to divulge plenty — from her alleged relationship with the President to her much-contested NDA."

Washington Post media reporter Paul Farhi wrote a Sept. 25 article on liberal-media bias headlined "Kavanaugh Supporters See a Conspiracy Afoot." The Post painted this as a little crazy, like a UFO is involved. Can anyone imagine the idea of the Democrats and liberal reporters working hand in glove to torpedo a Republican nomination?

Asking Anita Hill how to get a fairer congressional hearing is like asking Janet Cooke how to get better newspaper reporting.

So Judge Kavanaugh should quit over an incredibly vague rape accusation without a time or a place, or a corroborating witness other than the one who says she's making it up.

In Farrow's reporting, Moonves seems similar to Clinton, who struck women as very warm and charming ... until he made unwanted advances — to say the least! — and wasn't getting what he wanted.

Surely, with the passage of time and many other books exploring the Lewinsky affair and the other Clinton scandals, Starr can be treated with dignity and respect.

It is hard to fathom that there really exists a body of public opinion that supports Nike's decision to make former NFL star Colin Kaepernick the center of its new "Believe in something" advertising campaign.

Chuck Todd's article doesn't deserve a rebuttal. It deserves a laugh track.

If CNN really wanted to brand itself as a "Facts First" news channel, why did it promise to air a gushy documentary about fiercely feminist Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Labor Day weekend?

Look what happens when a Democrat is indicted. And tried. And convicted. And sentenced.

Over the years, Oprah Winfrey has seemingly evolved into America's mom. After her TV career, she sounds like an evangelist preaching a feminist substitute to replace religion in her monthly Oprah Magazine. Her August issue carries this motivational nugget of Oprah wisdom on the cover: "We all want to feel radiant, joyful, and alive. It starts with choosing love — in any form." No mention of faith, but no surprise there.

The Boston Globe successfully organized a campaign to get nearly 350 newspapers, large and small, to publish an editorial on Aug. 16 on "the dangers of the administration's assault on the press." They laughably claimed: "This whole project is not anti-Trump. It's really pro-press."

In the latest issue of Vanity Fair magazine, perpetually bilious writer James Wolcott has attacked the "myth of Hollywood's conservative blacklist." He finds it highly amusing that anyone would fear damage to their acting career for publicly favoring this president.

NBC "News" is perfectly demonstrating why the American people distrust the media's professed belief in facts, or their supposed approach of holding a story until they have enough documented evidence.

Considering their shoddy record of offering "resistance" to totalitarian communism, these journalists should really be much quieter and humbler about who's been friendlier to dictators.

There are plenty of reasons to be disgusted by what's being nominated for excellence in 2017.

TV shows are still pushing gun violence to goose the ratings. It's dramatically worse at the movies.

Republican Sen. Rand Paul sent the media into another meltdown on July 23 when he called on President Trump to revoke the security clearance of former President Obama's CIA Director John Brennan. He charged that Brennan is "monetizing" his privileges by becoming an on-air analyst for NBC News and MSNBC. That doesn't even count Brennan's speaking fees.
