Going after Ivanka Trump

March 4, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

When Senator Ted Kennedy championed the poor, did he face articles like this, making fun of his position based on his inherited wealth? Full articles all about the juxtaposition? Of course not. The Media loved Kennedy and stood behind him. He was the.... Read more

Why some jobs rely on tips

March 4, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

There are two major reasons why tipping works for restaurants. First, the cost of food is relatively low, so restaurant prices need to also be relatively low to encourage patrons to forego making the food themselves at home. If restaurants were to.... Read more

Scrutiny was done in 2016

March 4, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Boston Globe's editorial cheers Congress' hearing with Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former attorney, who has now turned 180-degrees against his former employer. This is not evidence of presidential corruption. If anything, this is e.... Read more

Graham shtick getting very old and tired

March 1, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Renee Graham’s racist rants are getting quite old. I guess it takes one to know one, but I have to admit to fatigue. Today is more nonsense, this time juxtaposing President Trump with an admitted White Supremacist who was allegedly planning a te.... Read more

Time to put opinion columns on opinion pages

February 26, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

"Is there anything left of the Republican Party Bill Weld once belonged to? Any lingering belief in the rule of law, the efficiency of markets, fiscal discipline, or the need for honesty and integrity in high elected officials?" This is the first .... Read more

Humor more difficult than it seems

February 26, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

This is supposed to be funny. And I'm a big Star Wars fan. Not funny. Liberals always seem to cackle with laughter when they insult President Trump. Maybe this is an autonomous reflex and perhaps Nestor is relying on this involuntary reactio.... Read more

What the…?

February 19, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Boston Globe columnist Renee Graham makes a simple but very powerful point in her Sunday editorial. White women who voted for Donald Trump are White Supremacists, and since a majority of them voted for him (52%), then most white women are, in fact, W.... Read more

Our border emergency

February 18, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Globe editorializes today that there is no real “emergency” at the southern border. They even argue that the term becomes meaningless if it is used to describe what is happening at the border. This is a great example of wishful thinking. E.... Read more

Socialist economist lets cat out of the bag

February 12, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Thomas Piketty is a Socialist French economist who recently wrote a book ("Capital in the 21st century") heralded by the Left for its Progressiveness. Today, he does Republicans and Donald Trump a big favor by endorsing and hoping for an expansion on.... Read more

Anti-American diatribe

February 11, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Kinzer is an anti-America American. He believes our country has had a bad history of using military force to advance our national interests, and therefore we should stop doing so. In Kinzer’s world, America is the bad guy. I guess that leaves Cu.... Read more

Boston Globe in serious denial

February 11, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

The Globe is simply in denial. It’s attempts to rehabilitate Warren after she was labeled a liar for claiming Indian ancestry to advance her professional career have failed, but the Globe isn’t ready to give up. The new narrative they are push.... Read more

When statistics don’t lie

February 10, 2019 | Editorial Review

PE Bias Grade : N/A

Margery Eagan obviously believes in socialism, and that is great for her. It is now becoming mainstream in the Democrat Party as younger Democrats who have been raised as socialists come into power and prominence. Socialism is anathema to capitali.... Read more
