AOC and the Democratic Party Assert Control of the New York Times

This story originally posted on wibc.com

It is time to give up the idea that The New York Times is representative of a Free Press. It is time to give up the idea that they are free to write their own headlines or do their own reporting. It is time to give up the idea that the NYT has the ability to engage in journalism in any independent or objective fashion. They are part and parcel of an attack mechanism in the United States, subject to the whims of their betters – better known as the Democratic Party. Take a look at The New York Times over the last 24 hours and ask this question: Is This How A Free Press Acts?

It starts with a headline– Trump Urges Unity vs Racism. That headline comes from the words of President Trump talking about the shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH:

In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart and devours the soul

– President Donald Trump


The political left looked at this headline, and sounded the alarm. Democratic Representative Ocasio-Cortez, Democratic Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker and other Democrats all said this headline was completely unacceptable. The near entirely of leftist Twitter exploded.

Here’s what happened on the

What kind of candidate do the Democrats want? If they nominate a Progressive will America vote for them? If they nominate a moderate, will the Democratic party vote for them?

Tony Katz hosts Eat! Drink! Smoke! presented by Fanimation.com. The debates left everyone with a comment, and with more questions about who the nominee will be than answers. Subscribe On iTunes! bit.ly/eatdrinksmoke

CNN and Playboy reporter Brian Karem was suspended from the White House for 30 days. This isn’t a story of Trump and the administration laying a smackdown on a reporter they don’t like. No, this is about how Karem acted at the White House…including threatening a guest of the President.

A review the Old Granddad 114 bourbon and the Davidoff Bellicoso “Special B” cigar, which can only be found (we believe) at Blend Bar Cigar locations across the country. Olive Garden has a $5 meal deal, but it might be no deal at all.

What Does The South Bend Police Department Think Of Mayor Pete Buttigieg?

Mayor and presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has angered both the police in South Bend and the residents with his reaciton to a police involved shooting. In the Democratic debates, and on the campaign trail, Mayor Buttigieg has made comments angering police, intimating that they are racist and policing is based in systemic racism.

South Bend Fraternal Order of Police Preisdent Harvey Mills talked to Tony Katz about tensions in South Bend, how the police department has responded to Mayor Buttigieg’s statements (including when the Mayor sent the police department pizza) and how city residents are reacting.

The interviewed occured on July 23rd, and originally aired on Tony Katz Today.

Are These The 25 Best Beers In America?

USA Today made a list of what they say are the best beers in America. The problem with any list like this is that deciding the 25 best beers is way too pretentious. Just, as Tony Katz feels about it, not as pretentious as an IPA.


This is Eat! Drink! Smoke! Tony, along with Fingers Malloy, reviews Beer Barrel Bourbon from New Holland Spirits and the Arturo Fuente Double Chateau cigar. Eat! Drink! Smoke! is sponsored by Fanimation.com

Look, if you’re an IPA fan, there’s nothing wrong with that. Tony isn’t. Fingers isn’t. But that doesn’t take away from their huge popularity, and multiple appearances on the list.

And if you’re curious, Tony and Fingers prefer the stouts and the brown ales.
