Echoing ‘Vladimir Putin’s talking points’ is putting Fox News at odds with ‘pro-Ukraine’ Republicans: conservative

During the George W. Bush years, the right-wing media, including Fox News, were quick to parrot neoconservative talking points. But Fox News has since taken a much more Trumpian turn, and its biggest star, Tucker Carlson, often promotes MAGA isolationism and a hypernationalist “America first” ideology. That isolationism, Never Trump conservative David Frum stresses in an article published by The Atlantic on January 28, is putting Fox News pundits at odds with more hawkish conservatives when it comes to Russia and Ukraine.

‘Who cares … call them racists’: Explaining the dishonest attacks on legal scholar Ilya Shapiro

Libertarian legal scholar Ilya Shapiro made a bad tweet. It didn’t express any bad ideas; it just made an unpopular argument, perhaps poorly worded.
You see, President Joe Biden has made it clear that he has excluded from his Supreme Court search all Hispanic people, all Indian Americans, all Pakistani Americans, all Chinese Americans, all Native Americans, all Italian Americans, all Irish Americans, all Polish Americans, and all men.

Cars and Bus Left Teetering as Bridge Collapses in Pittsburgh

Four cars and a bus were left teetering on the edge of disaster when a Pittsburgh bridge collapsed early Friday morning, sending chunks of concrete tumbling into a park below.
