Speaking with anchor Chris Hayes, Schmidt argued that the GOP has transformed under President Donald Trump, describing it as “irredeemable.” “It’s become a threat to America’s institutions, to small ‘L’ liberalism.

The 52-year-old Duckworth fires back at Carlson in an op-ed for the New York Times, stressing that she would gladly serve in the military again. “Even knowing how my tour...
    On June 12, 2020, Matt Taibbi published a rather confrontational ​article​ entitled “The American Press is Destroying Itself.” In it, he laments that “the American left has lost its mind. It’s become a cowardly mob of upper-class social media addicts, Twitter Robespierres, who move from discipline to discipline torching reputations and jobs with breathtaking casualness.” Taibbi cites a litany of recent “newsroom revolts,” which signal, in his mind, an editorial crisis of political correctness, where journalists have been beaten into...
