WASHINGTON TIMES — The New York Times' new policy on social media may rid the paper of perceived bias, but critics say it leaves unchecked the actual bias permeating "the Gray Lady's" reliably liberal pages. From ESPN to CNN, the mainstream media are grappling with how to cover a president who has incorporated criticizing the press into his morning Twitter routine. The ability to hit back on social media has proved too tempting for some journalists to resist.... (more)

BYRON YORK — On Oct. 4, the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm at the center of the Trump dossier affair.

ALAN KEYES — In the aftermath of President Trump's Twitter assault on NFL players who knelt during our national anthem, one commentator wrote that NFL fans were outraged by the players' action "because they feel you are disrespecting the American flag, the very flag that gives you your liberties. They feel you are spitting on the blood of servicemen who died...protecting your freedom." Though I fully understand and share the anger many people are feeling, I found this formulation inadequate, even misleading.... (more)

BYRON YORK — President Trump's most recent high-profile executive actions -- on Obamacare, immigration, and the Iran nuclear deal -- do three big things. First, they push Congress to act, which involves more than just calling the bluff of Republican leaders who talked big during the Obama years but failed to produce once the GOP controlled both Congress and White House....

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — You'll have about 10 minutes between finding out a nuclear bomb is heading for Washington on a ballistic missile and the moment it explodes over the city. At least that's the best guess from experts. And that's really a best-case scenario if the bomb comes from a North Korean missile. If it's a Russian or Chinese missile carrying a nuclear bomb? Even less.... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT — Given its prominence in current public discourse, one would think that hate, not love, is a many-splendored thing. The perfectly good word, which oozes out of every media pore, is now so overused that it means next to nothing. Every time you turn around, someone is accused of "hate" merely for expressing disagreement. This is not just a matter of semantics. It's serious. When you cheapen a word, it discourages honest discussion and leads to more confusion and conflict, which is how the devil likes it. We have it on good authority that the underworld thrives on mayhem.... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — Natural and manmade tragedies in Houston, Florida, Puerto Rico, and Las Vegas have diverted public attention from NFL protests.

ANDREW MCCARTHY — Why don't the stories say: "President Trump Faithfully Executes Affordable Care Act"? In report after sky-is-falling report, the journalism wing of the media-Democrat complex castigates the president over his decision to -- as the New York Times put it -- "scrap subsidies to health insurance companies that help pay out of pocket costs of low-income people." These subsidy payments are "critical" to sustaining the "Affordable Care Act." Without them, the Grey Lady frets, "President Barack Obama's signature domestic achievement" could "unravel."...

PHILIP KLEIN — With President Trump declining to certify that the Iran deal is in the best interest of the United States, Congress will be faced with the decision of whether to take new steps to counter Iranian aggression. There will be plenty of time in the coming months to debate the details of any such legislation, but as Congress considers what to do, lawmakers should operate under the premise that they are under no obligations to honor former President Barack Obama's promises to Iran....

ART MOORE — The Department of Health and Human Services has published a draft of a new strategic plan that states in its introduction that life begins at conception. The personhood of the unborn child is central to the abortion debate -- as even the justice who wrote the landmark Roe v. Wade opinion has acknowledged -- because, if established in law, it would nullify a "right" to abortion.... (more)
