  • This month marks the 10-year anniversary of the housing market meltdown that led to the Great Recession. Is another crisis looming around the corner? (subscriber access)
  • On a Sunday morning two days before the crucial California presidential primary, hundreds of college-age volunteers crowded into their candidate's campaign headquarters on Market Street in San Francisco to get their marching instructions for getting every registered voter the campaign had identified as backing Sen.

  • Our View
    Writing in the Wall Street Journal this past week, the noted civil libertarian attorney Alan Dershowitz decried the spectacle that is otherwise known, first, as the confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, and, more recently, as his show trial for alleged crimes of sexual assault.

  • Our View
    This is now the third recent editorial in which we have decried the collapsing standards of the mainstream media — each one made necessary by an incident in which the media took journalism to a new low. (subscriber access)
  • Even at this late hour, President Donald Trump can save the Republican Congress in November — if they want to be saved. To understand how, we need to rewind back to this time last year. (subscriber access)

  • Officials in states hit by Hurricane Florence are on the lookout for “price gouging.” (subscriber access)
  • Facing a public relations debacle, Senate Republicans have come up with a surefire compromise to win confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court: Instead of simply dismissing the sexual assault accusation lodged against their nominee, they will pretend to investigate — and only then rubber-stamp him. (subscriber access)
  • I just zipped down a city street on an electric scooter. (subscriber access)
  • In hawking his new memoir, Kenneth Starr displays all the dignity, fairness and proportion that characterized his pursuit of Bill Clinton’s impeachment two decades ago. (subscriber access)
  • The ink wasn’t even dry on our editorial last week about the decline of American journalism — its dishonesty, its hypocrisy, its bias, its absolutely brazen disregard for journalistic standards — when none other than The New York Times published an anonymous opinion piece that took journalism to a new low. (subscriber access)
  • This past week I asked a friend at the White House about how the president was holding up against the onslaught of media attacks. (subscriber access)
  • Mostly missing from the moving and deserved tributes to Sen. John McCain was attention to McCain’s gift for self-deprecating humor. (subscriber access)
  • Nothing Brett Kavanaugh said on his first day of his Supreme Court confirmation hearings relieves the most profound suspicion: that President Donald Trump nominated him to front a legalistic coup against the rule of law. (subscriber access)
