It involves the repeated, insistent use, by supposedly “straight news” reporters and outlets, of political labels that consistently disfavor conservatives while favoring liberals….[The AP, the WashPost, and the NYT all called Feinstein a “centrist.”}….

On China, Will Hurd deserves a listen (Sept. 21): Sometimes, long-shot presidential candidates deserve to have their policy prescriptions heard, regardless of whether they make headway in the polls. Witness, for example, the thoughtful focus on China by former Texas Rep. Will Hurd. ….
