Common Sense Interpretation


Media Bias Worst Since President Lincoln, Newt Gingrich

Quote: 92% of news coverage in the last period was negative towards Trump – “the most hostile coverage of a President in TV history.”

Quote: “…painted a shocking picture of Mexican society in what can only be described as a state of deep decay, even collapse. According to reports from the trial, drug cartels exert influence on everyone, from local police chiefs in border towns to the highest federal offices in Mexico City.”

Is America Headed For A New Kind Of Civil War? Robin Wright, The New Yorker

Quote: “Mines concluded that the United States faces a sixty-per-cent chance of civil war over the next ten to fifteen years…Based on his experience in civil wars on three continents, Mines cited five conditions that support his prediction.”

CS Commentary: Usual liberal perspective, quoting a dubious source like the Southern Law Poverty Center, but still an interesting overall perspective, and insightful opinions, like this quote: “The lesson of the war that should never depart from us, is that the American people have no exemption from the ordinary fate of humankind. If we sin, we must suffer for our sins, like the Empires that are tottering and the Nations that have perished.” – Murat Halstead, The War Claims Of The South, 1867

Carly Fiorina: The Contrary Opinion Against Tariffs (video, right), Fox Business

CS Commentary: We were Carly supporters before we were Trump supporters, and we like her. But, the present round of tariffs has no comparison to Smoot Hawley (see Top 5 Reasons for Current Market Correction). In addition, there is no ‘free trade’ currently, ‘without the tariffs’ (since Europe, China and other nations have unilaterally been putting tariffs on US products for decades). To pretend like there is, is ludicrous. Of course, the Chinese are currently at the table because our tariffs are hurting and will hurt their economy. It is hard to know where Carly is coming from with this argument – another run for President in 2020, perhaps?

American Millennials Take Note: How Socialism Ruined My Country (video, left), Prager U

CS Commentary: Here’s a poll that explains a lot. Americans still don’t get that trusting NBC and CNN anchors means that they are buying into leftist propaganda – not only in presentation, but in selection of the news topics. Meanwhile, Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams at Fox News score highest in the ‘Some trust’ category. Hmm.

Concern Around NFL That Four Referees In NFC Championship Game Came From Southern California, Adam Schefter, ESPN

Quote: “In the opinion of many around the football world, this was the most high-profile blown call in NFL history….the officiating crew was shown a replay of Robey-Coleman plowing into Lewis before the ball arrived, and the room went quiet….They knew they missed the call….In another interesting twist, before the conference title game, Rams fans launched a petition to prevent [head referee] Vinovich from working their team’s game because Los Angeles had gone 0-8 in games that Vinovich had officiated since 2012.”
