"The truth is more important than the facts." —Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959)

Political Editors · Aug. 17, 2018

Insight: “The truth is more important than the facts.” —Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959)

For the record: “Donald Trump has exposed [the Leftmedia] as dishonest Democrat Party hacks. The media right now are extensions of the Democratic Party.” —Jesse Watters

Upright: “Newspapers across the country are together running editorials on the same day decrying President Trump’s attacks on the press. … The press is not the enemy of the American people. But they are their own worst enemy. They are increasingly insular, live in leftwing bubbles, and are prone to lash out at criticism. They also, thanks to this editorial coordination, have given new ammunition to the president.” —Erick Erickson

Braying Jackass: “In a democracy, security clearances should not be used as pawns in a petty political game to distract voters from even bigger problems. This president befriends and praises despots and dictators like Putin and Kim Jong-un. Those friends provide stark contrast to the patriotic Americans and public servants he disrespects, threatens, and calls enemies: a war hero like John McCain, members of our country’s free press, and devoted public servants like John Brennan. American voters must not shrug off or be distracted from the terrible behaviors of this president, who lies to the American people every day, encourages racism, is a misogynist, and always puts his own interests above those of the United States of America.” —James Comey

Alpha Jackass: “The Republican Party is bankrupt intellectually. They are not going to campaign on their views of giving tax breaks to billionaires and cutting Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid, so they have to come up with some demon. I guess their demon right now is Nancy Pelosi.” —Bernie Sanders

Friendly fire: “Dear Nancy Pelosi: It’s not about you, it’s about your party and country. Forget being speaker.” —Sacramento Bee editorial

And last… “Remember that time 350+ newspapers published coordinated editorials decrying the Obama admin’s attack on Sharyl Attkisson for exercising her right to freedom of the press? Oh yeah… me either.” —Liz Wheeler
