Given the frequency with which this kind of ‘error’ pops up, I cannot help but wonder, if that isn’t precisely the magazine’s normal standards. As a matter of fact, the entire of the New York Times can be placed in the same category, rather easily. That may seem a brash statement, but consider; had it not been for LifeSiteNews, this situation would not have come to light at all.

Back on 16 December, I commented on Mrs. Pelosi’s planned four day coronation,   Rather then spending the public’s time in excessive celebration, Mrs. should be attending to draining her swamp. In the previous congress, when a republican congressman, Mark Foley, admited to unethical behavior, then Speaker Denny Hasert persuaded Foley to resign.   In the Hill, Jonathan E. […]
