Sean Spicer is incompetent, not anti-Semitic

Sean Spicer is incompetent, not anti-Semitic

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer toasted what few crumbs of credibility he had by committing a mortal sin of political discourse -- Saying "Hitler" In Any Conversation Not About Hitler. The Fuhrer of the Third Reich is the Platinum Standard for...

Fake news vs. freedom, again…

Fake news vs. freedom, again…

This is a picture of amber waves of grain. It's a stock photo made available by the company that hosts our blogging platform. Neither Ronnie Martin nor any of the other fake journalists at Freedom Daily, his glorified Facebook page, has any legitimate claim to its...

Fake journalist still ‘missing,’ trolls abound

It’s Fake News Friday!

It’s Fake News Friday!

Good morning, and welcome to a new Kelly's World feature -- Fake News Friday! Each week, I'll highlight at least one lowlight of utterly false "stories" masquerading as true journalism. Our inaugural entry appeared on a Facebook page called Lackawanna County News....

Students school SSD officials with video

Students school SSD officials with video

Considering the playground antics of the Scranton School Board and the teachers' union and their shared struggles with math, history and basic English, it's uplifting to read about students outshining the alleged adults in charge. Today, Education Reporter Sarah...

Free speech for all or none

Free speech for all or none

Freedom of speech does not grant the right to shout down opposing voices or stifle offensive ideas, a lesson clearly lost on some college campuses in the Trump era. Violent clashes have erupted at alleged institutions of higher learning as protesters seek to block...
