I really like reading the Wall Street Journal. It’s news and opinions are completely separate, and I find the news reporting very balanced. Now, I may have blinders on because the Journal’s editorial pages lean conservative, so there is a danger .... Read more

Some “apology”

September 10, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Joan Vennochi has some nice blinders over her eyes. She thinks it is time to remake Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Warren, a socialist, needs to be rebranded as a moderate. This will be tough and I don’t think it is really doable. She has been described.... Read more

September 16, 2019 | Article Review

PE Bias Grade : D

We have a funny mix of Boston Globe tricks used in this article to promote their agenda. First, another rally is being covered, this time to promote the idea that illegal immigrants should be given drivers' licenses. The Globe loves Liberal rallie.... Read more

Warren Report #233-2019

August 27, 2019 | Article Review, Investigative Journalism

PE Bias Grade : F

Sen. Elizabeth Warren apologized the other day for “missteps.” The Globe covers this breaking news by judging its effect on how Native Americans feel about it, I guess because they think cultural misappropriation only hurts the members of the cul.... Read more
