STOSSEL: I Hate The New York Times

Posted: December 6, 2017 at 1:00 pm   /   Features, National, Politics, Top Stories

My hometown paper drives me crazy. I read The New York Times because it often has good coverage. The newspaper pays to send reporters to dangerous places all around the world. This weekend, the Times Magazine did a surprisingly fair profile of Sean Hannity, although they chose photos that make him look evil. But mostly […]

STOSSEL: The Evil Rich

Posted: November 29, 2017 at 1:00 pm   /   Features, National, Politics, Top Stories

As Republicans struggle to agree on a tax plan, Democrats and much of the media label each attempt at reform a “gift” to rich people. In one sense, they are right. Any tax cut disproportionately favors rich people since the rich pay much more tax. But the media and Democrats (is there a difference?) are […]

STOSSEL: The Ruling Class

Posted: October 26, 2016 at 9:30 am   /   Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories

America is often described as a society without the Old World’s aristocracy. Yet we still have people who feel entitled to boss the rest of us around. The “elite” media, the political class, Hollywood and university professors think their opinions are obviously correct, so they must educate us peasants. OK, so they don’t call us […]

STOSSEL: A Better Choice

Posted: October 20, 2016 at 10:15 am   /   Elections, Politics

Hillary Clinton is a manipulative, power-mad liar. Donald Trump is a selfish, sexist, narcissistic bully. These are our choices Nov. 8? The leading candidates’ avarice is bad enough. Their ideas are worse. Clinton wants to micro-regulate America into poverty and stagnation. Trump would start a trade war, if not an actual war. While America is […]

STOSSEL: What Candidates Won’t Say

Posted: October 13, 2016 at 1:30 pm   /   Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Catch politicians in private moments and you might hear what they really believe: Donald Trump “can do anything” to women because he’s powerful. Hillary Clinton’s “private” positions aren’t the same as her “public” ones. In public, politicians mostly get away with spouting talking points and clamming up about questions that really matter. When Clinton was […]

STOSSEL: Admiring Foreign Leaders

Posted: October 5, 2016 at 12:15 pm   /   Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Asked on a TV show to name a foreign leader he admires, Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gov. Gary Johnson choked. He couldn’t produce a name. He said he had “a brain freeze.” The media pounced. “Unable to name a foreign leader,” sneered NPR. “Cannot name one,” echoed USA Today. But that’s just unfair. Johnson wasn’t […]

STOSSEL: The Debate I Heard

Posted: September 29, 2016 at 11:30 am   /   Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Something’s wrong with me. I watched Monday’s presidential debate. But what I heard was different from what Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton seemed to say. When Clinton said, “I want us to invest in you,” what I heard was, “I will spend your money better than you will.” Also, I heard, “I will spend lots […]

STOSSEL: Supreme Court Picks

Posted: September 21, 2016 at 9:00 am   /   Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Hillary Clinton and her fellow progressives shout things like “Health care is a right!” They’ve also said that education, decent housing and child care are “rights.” The U.N. goes further. Its bureaucrats declared that every person has a “right” to rest and leisure, food, clothing, housing, “necessary” social services, free education, periodic holidays with pay […]

STOSSEL: Sausage Party Politics

Posted: September 14, 2016 at 1:00 pm   /   Entertainment, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Seth Rogen, co-writer, co-producer and co-star of the animated comedy “Sausage Party,” is unhappy with me — for defending him. His movie was attacked by some online commentators for using ethnic and sexual stereotypes, as cartoons often do. What was remarkable is how incensed some people get over a cartoon, even one about talking food. […]
