It's time for a Friday Media Experiment

THIS MORNING I WATCHED FOX NEWS AND CNN Just to see how they were covering the immigration debate going on in the House.  Fox News spent a lot of time pointing out how Democrats were intractable on the issue of border security and that the more conservative members of the Republican party were loathe to vote for anything that looked remotely like amnesty.  More focus on the Democrats, but a good bit of discussion about how the GOP can't get the caucus together.  CNN spent ZERO time on Democrats refusing to vote for any sort of border security.  I watched two different shows and the comments by President Trump about the GOP "wasting it's time" with immigration reform was the ONLY topic of discussion.  But they didn't even give the FULL comment, which is this:

“Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November.  Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything that solves this decades old problem. We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!”

CNN completely left off the second part of this statement.  No mention of Democrats AT ALL.  No wonder we are completely polarized in this country.  Please watch multiple networks if for no other reason than to see what the Other Team is consuming.  It's very enlightening. 


MICHAEL SHERMER IS ON TO DISCUSS HOW WEB SEARCHES TELL US HOW WE REALLY FEEL I read this column some time ago and it freaked me out a bit.  Why?  Because I search some jacked up stuff because of this job and now Google probably has me the Weirdo category.  If you take all the web searches made and use them as a "truth teller" we are not as nice as we think we are.  Michael also has a new book out called Heavens on Earth: The Scientific Search for the Afterlife, Immortality, and Utopia.  In it he explores the Afterlife and the possibility of it's existence and you can buy it here


RIP CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER The conservative author and critic and Renaissance man has passed away from the cancer he fought for many years


WHO IS GOING TO WATCH THE ROSEANNE-LESS REBOOT OF ROSEANNE? You can count out all of the people who watched the first successful reboot.  And I find it hard to believe that coastal liberals who all cheered Roseanne's firing from her eponymous show are going to watch a show about a white trash family.  But I may be wrong.  We shall see as it looks like it's a go


NOW THE COPS MUST GET A WARRANT BEFORE DATA MINING YOUR CELL PHONE And in this case, the Supremes said in a 5-4 ruling that cops using a bank robber's cell phone data to track his movement without a warrant was a 4th Amendment search.  This is a BIG win for civil liberties.  


THIRTY YEARS INTO THE AGW SCAM, LET'S SEE HOW THE EXPERTS DID The Wall Street Journal did what many news outlets would not dare to do, they checked.  Spoiler alert: it did not go well. 


TIME MAGAZINE USED THE WRONG PATHETIC SAD GIRL ON THEIR COVER Because now we know she was NOT separated from her mother, who took her without her husband and the girl's father's permission.  He says he wife decided to take off for the US because she wanted a "better life".  And she left her three other kids at home
