  • Commentary posted October 28, 2012 by Mike Gonzalez Should Federal Funding Remain for Public Broadcasting? No

    They used to say that the country had a Daddy Party and a Mommy Party. This no longer applies, and is, in fact, patronizing ... to mommies. Anyone taking a stand on continuing government support for Big Bird is not maternal, but infantile. If mothers know one thing, it's when to push the reluctant fledgling off the nest. And no, I don't charge infantilism because I…

  • Commentary posted October 11, 2012 by Mike Gonzalez PBS Epitomizes Liberal Elite

    There's a reason liberals have taken up Big Bird as the face of public broadcasting and not, say, Bill Moyers. Mr. Bird is feathery and cuddly, while Moyers likes to compare American flag lapel pins to Mao's Little Red Book.

  • Commentary posted September 24, 2012 by Mike Gonzalez Checkers Confuse Facts with Opinions

    Fact-checkers have become a fact of life, so logic dictates that it's time we checked them. It's the age-old conundrum: Who controls the meta-controller?

There are many issues that raise…

    Lech Walesa was once a trade-union activist. He was often arrested for speaking his mind against Communist oppression behind the Iron Curtain in Poland and for defying the Soviet Union. He was an electrician who, with no higher education, led one of the most profound freedom movements of the 20th century — Solidarity. He became president of Poland and swept in reforms,…

  • Commentary posted March 21, 2012 by Mike Gonzalez Pope Benedict, Why Won't You Meet With Cuba's Dissidents?

    Pope Benedict XVI’s trip to Cuba, later this month had the potential to greatly advance the cause of human freedom, which is, after all, the continuation of Jesus Christ’s work on this earth.  During this visit the pope could meet publicly with dissidents to offer them a measure of protection from their tormentors. He could speak clearly and loudly about their…

    Fox News haters are circling in the water so furiously that the sharks are calling their lawyers. The phone-hacking scandal that led to the closing of one of the world’s oldest papers, the News of the World, has shaken Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp empire, and the whiff of blood in the water is obviously exhilarating for his enemies. So we’re visited by that rarest of…
