Goldberg: Phony ‘war on women’ fueled by false panic

Last Friday, the White House announced its "It's On Us" initiative aimed at combating sexual assaults on college campuses. I'm all in favor of combating sexual assault, but the first priority in combating a problem is understanding it.

Goldberg: Islamic State is very definition of ‘evil’
