China Ends One-Child Policy

A look at why (ABC News). From the Wall Street Journal: The Chinese Communist Party’s decision Thursday to end its one-child policy is a landmark that ends one of the worst government intrusions on human freedom in world history.

CNBC Overt Bias Steals Show at Republican Debate

From Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus: While I was proud of our candidates and the way they handled tonight’s debate, the performance by the CNBC moderators … did a disservice to their network, our candidates, and voters (Fox News). From the Daily Mail: The evening event in Boulder, Colorado was billed as a purely economic discussion but turned into a referendum on America’s political media, making the Republican-on-Republican rhetorical violence a secondary sideshow (Daily Mail).  Brent Bozell writes “The CNBC debate will go down in history as an encyclopedic example of liberal media bias on stage.  The audience roared its disdain for these so-called ‘journalists,’ and all of America heard it.  CNBC should be embarrassed for their pitiful display of partisan liberal media bias and apologize to the GOP candidates and the American people (Newsbusters). From Time Magazine: Whatever pundits and polls say about who won or lost the Republican presidential debate on Wednesday night, there was one clear loser: the media (Time). From the Wall Street Journal: Wasn’t the Republican Party supposed to pick moderators who had some acquaintance with Republicans? We have many friends at CNBC, but the three debate moderators lost control of the proceedings from the start and never regained it. There is no surer applause line at a GOP debate than to attack the media, and the moderators walked into the trap with tendentious questions based on liberal talking points (WSJ). From Hugh Hewitt: It was as if @CNBC did its debate prep by watching reruns of West Wing and The Newsroom (Twitter). From Fred Barnes: The CNBC panelists seemed oblivious to how they came across and how eager they appeared to embarrass the candidates, often on trivial matters.  Marco Rubio’s cashing in a small retirement fund and paying a fine for doing so – that was their idea of an important issue. It backfired (Weekly Standard). Some media ignorantly treated the attack on them as a political ploy (USA Today). ABC News at least noted these were, in fact, “contentious questions” (ABC News). Michael Barone sees the biased moderators as helping the Republicans (Washington Examiner). A conservative writer saw this coming (The Federalist). CNBC defended their lousy moderators (CNN). The crowd got behind the candidates (Breitbart). Moderator John Harwood appeared to be rather dishonest when attacking Rubio’s tax plan (Breitbart). A Bush/Rubio exchange seemed to help Rubio (Washington Post). Fact Checks (CNN, CBS News, Fox News). Cruz’s flat tax plan op-ed lands today (WSJ). Winners and losers (Townhall). From Jonathan Last: …what should scare Hillary Clinton is how effortless Rubio is even with throwaway lines, like “I’m against anything that’s bad for my mother.” Most people have no idea how fearsome raw political talent can be. Clinton does know because she’s seen it up close. She sleeps next to it for a contractually-obligated 18 nights per year (Weekly Standard). Why, of course there is a ton of audio (SONNetwork).
