Conservatives insist that CNN is DOA.

That’s nonsense. Ratings are high and profits are up. All this since the man who made a fortune by building up Donald Trump as a television star -- Jeff Zucker, the head of CNN who used to run NBC -- seems to have decided that there is more money to be made from tearing down Trump now that he is president.

If Laura Kipnis thought she was under fire in 2015 after writing an essay for The Chronicle of Higher Education criticizing an emergent “sexual paranoia” on college campuses, then her new book will surely catapult her into public-enemy No. 1 status in the eyes of legions of angry feminists.
