What are 2022's best movies? You'll be shocked if you look at the New York Times' and legacy media lists

December 27, 2022  •  Fox News

'Tis the season of endless "best of" lists. Newspapers, magazines, and social media sites have been flooded with their cultural critics' views of 2022's ten best books, plays, restaurants, "hatemongers," and, of course, movies.

A glance at these lists, particularly the "ten best films," suggests how utterly out of touch some of the nation's most prominent film critics are with what Americans want to watch.

Execution of Iranian protestor may kick off even more violent regime crackdown

December 10, 2022  •  Fox News

Mohsen Shekari, 23, was not the first Iranian protester to be killed Thursday for demanding freedom in the nation-wide demonstrations that have rocked Iran since September. Human rights groups estimate that over 450 civilians been killed, and some 18,000 arrested, in the nearly three months of demonstrations that have morphed into a nation-wide protest of clerical rule that the regime has been unable to contain.

Rushdie attack serves as warning about censorship, violence in US

August 18, 2022  •  Fox News

Hadi Matar, a 24-year-old American of Lebanese origin, wasn't born yet when Iran's Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued his infamous fatwa calling for Salman Rushdie's murder for "insulting Islam" 33 years ago. While the motive behind Matar's heinous attack on the celebrated author remains unclear, his assault reflects two dangerous trends across the political spectrum in America — the growing hostility to free speech and the legitimation of violence as an acceptable form of political protest.
