Bari Weiss tells Brian Stelter that he and CNN are driving Americans "mad" with their constant lies and gas-lighting. Video at the link, but here's a transcript:

"When you have the chief reporter on the beat of COVID, for The New York Times, talking about how questioning that the virus leaked from a Wuhan lab is racist, the world has gotten mad," Weiss said of New York Times reporter Apoorva Mandavilli, who did report that it is racist to ask if the virus was a lab leak. Mandavilli also falsely reported that 900,000 US children had been hospitalized since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. It was actually 63,000.

"When you're not able to say out loud and in public that there are differences between men and women: the world has gone mad.

"When we're not allowed to acknowledge that rioting is rioting, and it is bad, and that silence is not violence, but violence is violence: the world has gotten mad.

"When we're not able to say that Hunter Biden's laptop is a story worth pursuing: the world has gone mad.

"When in the name of progress. Young school children, as young as kindergarten, are being separated in public schools because of their race, and that is called progress rather than segregation: the world has gone mad.

"There are dozens of examples that I could share with with you and with your viewers," Weiss said, as Stelter tried to interrupt. "Everyone sort of knows this--"

"You say we're not able," Stelter said, "who is the people stopping--who are they?"

"People that work at networks, frankly, like the one I'm speaking on right now," Weiss said with a laugh...

Ted Cruz says "Let's go Brandon!"

Biden and his caregiver/wife were filmed walking around a restaurant without their masks -- and the policy in place, which Biden supports, is that you must be masked except when actively eating -- and Jen Psaki defends this Masks For Thee But Not For Me policy of the Ruling Class.

Bootyjudge says that his two month vacation during a crisis for which he is responsible wasn't really a vacation, because being a Second Dad is the hardest job you'll ever love.

"When somebody welcomes a new child into their family and goes on leave to take care of that child, that's not a vacation. It's work," Buttigieg said of his leave, which began in August after he and husband Chasten welcomed two infant twins into their family.

Leftwing Twitter Influencer Bill Kristol continues to be Outraged that anyone would criticize Bootyjudge for secretly abandoning his post during a shipping crisis that Bootyjudge is responsible for resolving as Secretary of Transportation, and attacks anyone who criticizes him as a homophobe.

But what's this? Dave Reaboi points out that Kristol wrote an introduction for a book he'd no doubt now brand as "homophobic."

Michael Anton calls a spade a spade and a liberal-leaning grifter a liberal-leaning grifter.

Jonah's feelings were hurt. So he called Anton a f@g. Again.

"Michael Anton is a dishonest, power-hungry, oddly effeminate and slightly deranged, political whore who has let his own shame twist him into a grifting buffoon, precisely because he's aware how he screwed up his own life." -- Michael Anton, in the mirror every morning.

Wait so you can insinuate that Michael Anton is gay but you can't criticize Bootyjudge for secretly abandoning his job for two months during a crisis?

The NeverTrumpers seem to have the exact same set of double-standards that their allies and donors on the far left have.

An acclaimed Spanish-language novel, believed to have been written by a woman, turns out to have actually been written by three men under a female pseudonym.

On Friday, the literary world in Spain was turned on its head after the acclaimed female crime thriller author "Carmen Mola" was revealed to be the pseudonym of three men when awarded a coveted book prize.

When taking the state at the Planeta awards on Friday, television scriptwriters Agustín Martínez, Jorge Díaz, and Antonio Mercero shocked guests, including Spain's King Felipe and Queen Letizia, when they said that the crime author does not exist, according to CNN.

Mola's agent describes the writer on their website as a "Madrid-born author" writing under a pseudonym in an attempt to remain anonymous. The website also features a number of photos of an unknown woman looking away from the camera.

"In previous interviews with Spanish media, Martínez, Díaz and Mercero had presented Mola as a female university professor who lived in Madrid with her husband and children," according to CNN.

If you can believe this Plot Twist, feminists are angry.

Following the announcement of Mola's true identity, Beatriz Gimeno, who describes herself as a writer and a feminist and is the former director of the Women's Institute in Spain, criticized the three men on Twitte

In a tweet, Gimeno said: "Beyond using a female pseudonym, these guys have spent years doing interviews. It's not just the name, it's the fake profile they've used to take in readers and journalists. Scammers."

The feminist is mad because they "stole" the prize from a woman.

But if women are being discriminated against -- rather than being discriminated in favor of -- then how would three dudes pretending to be a woman been at a competitive advantage, either as regards acceptance by a publisher, or sales in the marketplace, or the winning of prestigious literary awards?

Sounds like this bitter shrew is just angry that men saw the game was rigged against them and changed their marketing campaign to beat the corrupt system.

By the way: The prize they won? It wasn't just getting your name inscribed on a plaque.

It was a one million Euro prize.



Peter Bogosian -- one of the three academics behind the Sokal Squared hoax of fake "Woke" papers -- wryly notes, "Authentic, lived experience cannot be faked."

Jamie Lee Curtis says the latest Halloween reboot/remake/sequel/cash-in is about "mob violence on January 6," so rush right out to see that, or pay for it on streaming.

Curtis said the new Halloween Kills movie is about the kind of "mob violence" that Americans saw during the January 6 riot at the US Capitol.

"We have just in America watched a mob descend on January 6 with nooses and stun guns and members of Congress in the building, and we all watched it on TV."

Amusing bet over the feasibility of Batman's mid-conversation disappearances.

Whether it's possible or not, it's still rude. Seriously, Batman is rude. I stopped liking the character ten years ago when I noticed how unceasingly, needlessly rude he was to everyone.

I think the lesson here is that yes, Batman can disappear when you're not looking, but this is not spontaneous. This rude dick has to scout the scene ahead of time to figure out where he can vanish to, and he has to intentionally misdirect you as he's about to vanish. Also, he will probably have to remain in his hiding place until you've given up and gone back to your normal business, which means he's going to be spending five or ten minutes every time he vanishes on someone hiding.

Time he could be spending on crime-fighting, instead of trying to bother and confuse his allies.

So yes, it can be done, but you'd have to be an asshole to do this to your friends.
