@WRAL Beclowns Itself In Debunk Attempt of #MoralMonday Attendance

WRAL is nearly falling over itself to rush to the aid of the NAACP and Moral Mondays:

Of the 388 people who have been arrested over those six weeks, arrest records indicate only eight – or 2 percent – are from out of state. While not all who come to the rallies get arrested, the records provide the best verifiable snapshot into the makeup of the protesters. (link)

Fitzsimon still regularly enjoys airtime at WRAL radio.

Mr. Binker has a new piece up. A ‘fair and balanced’ look at think tanks and policy groups out there that are influencing our politics. It’s actually not bad and mentions groups from both sides. Of course, Art Pope – the NC Left’s version of George Soros – gets a special mention. Of note, in the article there is finally a section on Goodmon, even if it is a little vague: Continue reading
