Evening Open Thread Headlines

Media Bias Tops Special Interest Money as Biggest Public Complaint in Politics .

Just another form of unearned, anti-democratic privilege.

Chuck Schumer: Don't listen to what I said then, listen to what I'm saying now.

Charlie Cook -- the older one, the American pollster -- says the race will come down to Trump v. Cruz, and Cruz is better positioned to prevail.

Thomas Sowell has now endorsed Cruz.

Via Instapundit, this turbojet rocket sounds hot.

Shock: German prosecutors say most suspects in Cologne mob attacks are refugees. By the way, CBS gives this a misleading headline: Germany Blames Cologne Sex Assaults Mostly on Refugees. That makes it sound like the German public is blaming the refugees.

Nope. It's the prosecutors. Seventy three suspects have been identified, who they say are "generally" refugees.

We're losing our First Amendment rights, warns an FCC member, obviously.

Female senators whine, kvetch, and nag that Hillary is a victim of passive sexism.

Don Surber looks into this, and finds that Maureen Dowd's explanation for why people hate Hillary's guts is probably accurate.

Mark Krikorian makes a good point. Ideally, we'd like Republicans to say stuff like "we'll of course consider Obama's nominees." But that ideal situation assumes that we trust them to ultimately make the right call. Because we have no trust at all in them -- and that mistrust is wel-earned -- they're forced to make impolitic statements about not even considering his nominees.

And that's just because any sort of ambiguous statement will be construed as selling us out. Because... that is what they've taught us these past several years.

Oh, and Hillary, one of the world's top beneficiaries of whatever White Privilege might actually exist, demands we all recognize White Privielge exists. Then she goes on a coughing jag, which tells us something psychological or something physiological.

And that's all I got.
