It never ends …

Buzzkill … Steven Greenhouse, former labor reporter for the New York Times, is one heck of a buzzkill. When the rest of the nation put aside political differences to feel good about a kid mowing the Rose Garden lawn at the White House, Greenhouse tweeted: “Not sending a great signal on child labor, minimum wage & occupational safety >> Trump White House lets a 10-year-old volunteer mow its lawn.” Greenhouse went on to say that government agencies say you need to be 12 years old to run a push mower. This is why we can’t have nice things.

Harwood happens … CNBC’s John Harwood is still a card-carrying member of the Hillary Apologetics Club. This morning he’s gone on a rant trying to downplay Clinton’s scandals, to the point where he still tries to defend Benghazi as a minor matter. These folks just can’t move on.

Manning infatuation … Vice published a love note to convicted traitor Bradley/Chelsea Manning. It’s OK that Manning put American lives in jeopardy because, well, Manning’s Twitter is fire, or something.

Spicy Emmys …

Humorless … Sean Spicer, the beleaguered former press secretary of Donald Trump, graciously lampooned himself on the Emmy Awards last night. But that wasn’t enough for critics in the media. They couldn’t put politics aside and went after Spicer anew. The New York Times has a roundup.

They must be punished … Last week I wrote about the Left’s infatuation with the new “Air America” called Pod Save America. Today I bring you this gem from its co-founder Jon Favreau, who tweeted this about Sean Spicer: “Harvard fellowships, Emmy appearances, huge speaking fees: there’s just gonna be no penalty for working in Trump’s White House, huh?” You don’t have to like Trump to think the notion that there should be a penalty for serving your country isn’t a sane political argument.

A quick guide to the Emmys … NewsBuster’s Karen Townsend watched the Emmys so you didn’t have to. She wrote a quick look at everything that went down that you should know about. If you want the lowlights of the “three-hour rant” targeted at Trump, Townsend lays it out for you.

Tell a friend …

I can’t fight back alone against the mainstream media. I need your help. There are two ways you can help. First, send your friends – and even your enemies – over to the WTF MSM!? email subscription page and get them sign up. Second, email me at with anything questionable you see the media do. Together, we can fight back.
