Conservatives know that media bias is a fact of life. But I often fear that we underestimate just how much of an obstacle it really is. For example, liberal journalists routinely play word games with the latest economic data in order to make the administration look good. Consider this headline about today's figures: "Jobless Claims Total 333,000 vs. 337,000 Estimate."

A Big Crack In Benghazi Stonewall
There has been a major new development in the "phony" Benghazi scandal, as President Obama calls it.
Without the tenacity of Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA), the Benghazi scandal would likely have been forgotten long ago. But like a junk yard dog, Rep. Wolf has refused to let go of the story. His efforts were partially vindicated last night by the liberals at CNN.

Obama Praises Ho Chi Minh
Last week President Obama met with his Vietnamese counterpart, President Truong Tan Sang, at the White House. During a photo-op, Obama repeated the canard of the left that Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam's notorious communist dictator, "was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson."

A Tale Of Two Deaths
As we reported yesterday, President Obama lashed out at what he called "phony scandals" in Washington during a speech on the economy this week. The two big scandals in the news are the IRS/Tea Party scandal and the Benghazi cover-up.
Patricia Smith was on Fox News yesterday, and she did not take Mr. Obama's remarks very well. You see, her son, Sean Smith, was killed during the attacks on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Is Obama Running On Empty?
Since his reelection eight months ago, President Obama has been coasting, and it's showing. His approval ratings are down. His signature legislative accomplishment, Obamacare, is as unpopular as ever. Seeking to regain his footing ahead of some critical budget battles in the months ahead, Obama decided to give yet another speech on the economy.
