Love affair with communists …

The New York Times' love affair with the brutal communist dictators of the Soviet Union continues. This time, on the eve of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the paper is claiming that the Soviet Union really won the space race because of "equality." That's right, the regime that killed over 50 million of its own citizens is celebrated for "equality" by the Times.

Here's Sophie Pinkham's main argument:

The Cold War was fought as much on an ideological front as a military one, and the Soviet Union often emphasized the sexism and racism of its capitalist opponents — particularly the segregated United States. And the space race was a prime opportunity to signal the U.S.S.R.'s commitment to equality. After putting the first man in space in 1961, the Soviets went on to send the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit — all years before the Americans would follow suit.

Pinkham joins a long list of NYT writers who have glorified the excesses of the Soviet Union. In his – ironically – New York Times best-selling book, "Unfreedom of the Press," LevinTV host Mark Levin exposed this long history, dating back to Walter Duranty and his propaganda about Stalin's regime.

For nearly a century, the Times has lauded the murderous thugs who ran the Soviet Union and the system they employed. This week, as America celebrates one of her crowning achievements of the 20th century, the Times piles on again, this time by glorifying a few of the people the Soviet's brutal regime didn't kill for disagreeing with it.

Stelter's blues …

CNN media critic/cheerleader Brian Stelter is having a no-good, very bad year. While he continues to rail against President Donald Trump, his viewership is in a free fall. Breitbart.com's John Nolte has the schadenfreude-tastic details.

Brian Stelter's CNN show, Reliable Sources, has lost more than 40 percent of its viewers since the beginning of the year.

Stelter, a left-wing conspiracy theorist who serves as a reactionary mouthpiece for his boss, Jeff Zucker, the far-left extremist responsible for running CNN into the ratings dirt, was at least able to average 967,000 viewers during the first four weeks of this year, from January 6 to January 27.

But during the four weeks that just passed — from June 16 to July 7Reliable Sources has only been able to average 557,000 viewers.

Seems like America isn't buying what Stelter is selling.
