When Texas kindergarten teacher Shannon Grimm noticed that one of her students, 5-year-old Prisilla Perez, was being teased by classmates for "looking like a boy," she decided to take action. Now, Grimm and Prisilla have matching haircuts and wear matching bows at school to show everyone it's OK for girls to have short hair, too. What are the details? Prisilla became embarrassed over her pixie-cut hairstyle after classmates told her it made her look "like a boy." The teasing caused the little girl to cry and withdraw at school, wearing a hat or hoodie to cover her head at all times.

On President’s Day, historian and author John Rhodehamel hosts the latest video from Prager University, “What Made George Washington Great,” where he details how his leadership of the United States as Army commander and as the first president changed the course of the nation. “It’s hard to imagine there would have been a United States of America without George Washington,” Rhodehamel said. “He was there at the birth of the nation. He successfully guided it through war and nurtured it in peace. How did he do it? Not by being a great general, a potent political theorist, or even a clever politician. He was none of those things. And yet, he was admired by generals, political theorists and politicians. Why?” He explained, “Because he was a man great men trusted. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, James Madison and so many others looked up to him… literally. He was one of the tallest men of his era at six-foot-three. … [Read more...] about PragerU: What Made George Washington Great?
As the war between moviegoing and the streaming revolution continues, Hollywood veteran Steven Spielberg has chosen to fight for the former's high-art supremacy. According to Variety, Spielberg took his swipe at the streaming revolution while accepting the Filmmaker Award at the Cinema Audio Society (CAS) awards in Los Angeles, saying "there’s nothing like going to a big dark" cinema.

Only days after smearing the Covington Catholic students with an out-of-context video clip and the blatant lies of a Native American activist, our illustrious news media yet again beclowned itself with the Jussie Smollett debacle. Many outlets somberly reported Smollett's outrageous "hate crime" fable as fact, betraying not even the faintest hint of skepticism. Now as the story falls apart, and Smollett is revealed as a fraud and a liar, the media has been presented with a valuable opportunity for honest self-assessment.
