The Media Actually Covers Obama’s ‘Deliverance Defamation.’

Appearing with us now on Sirius 144, Rich Noyes of the Media Research Center offers some genuinely surprising news — the media actually has been covering Obama’s comments. (I’m calling them “The Deliverance Defamation.”) “I don’t think they’ve ever jumped on a story this bad for Democrats this fast,” he said.

He notes that early on in the reporting of the story, the coverage focused on Obama’s use of the word “bitter” – as opposed to his conflating gun ownership, religious belief, anti-immigrant attitudes, racism, and opposition to free trade.
Noies notes that he spoke beyond Pennsylvania, referring to “like a lot of small towns in the Midwest.” Good fodder for Hillary’s anti-Obama ads in West Virginia, North Carolina, and Indiana.

Obstruction Confusions

In his Lawfare critique of one of my several columns about the purported obstruction case against President Trump, Gabriel Schoenfeld loses me — as I suspect he will lose others — when he says of himself, “I do not think I am Trump-deranged.” Gabe graciously expresses fondness for me, and the feeling is ...
