LEFTY JOURNALISTS STILL PROTECTING TED KENNEDY

Commentary by Paul Kengor

PolitiFact is correct in asserting that Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld is indeed incorrect in claiming that the 1983 memo from KGB head Victor Chebrikov to Soviet General Secretary Yuri Andropov states that Kennedy met with the KGB. The memo never said that. However, the memo does state that Kennedy offered to go to Moscow to meet with Andropov and the Soviet leadership, which surely would have included the KGB’s Chebrikov, the author of the memo who relayed this information/offer to Andropov. That was the intent. PolitiFact doesn’t mention that crucial fact.

THE AMERICAN DIVIDE: DEPLORABLES VS. P*SSYHATS

Commentary by Suzanne Fields

You could call it the tale of two election reflections, two competing points of view, two American perceptions of out-of-focus reality.

THE ART OF THE SELF-DESTRUCTION

Commentary by Derek Hunter

Did you enjoy “Made In America Week”? Did you even know it was “Made In America Week”? Well, it was. But thanks to President Donald Trump’s inability to get out of his own way and maintain any semblance of message discipline, the week-long celebration of American manufacturing went about as successfully as “Infrastructure Week.” Don’t remember that either?
