Comedy Central anchor Jordan Klepper has scaled the heights of political satire with his faux Fox News orthodoxy, a staple of “The Opposition” that will be sorely missed. Klepper is on fire in today’s monologue, a full-scale assault on “don’t trust ’em” Trump conservatives who refuse to acknowledge the tragedy at the U.S.-Mexico border. The […]
Media bias is identifiable by which stories are not covered as much as by screaming headlines. We didn’t hear much about the booming Clinton economy from Rush Limbaugh in the 90s.

Tucker Carlson’s takeover of Fox News’ 8 p.m. time slot has been greeted with cheers by his fans in the neo-Nazi, white nationalist, and misogynistic corners of the Internet.
