Ted Nugent said he wants the country’s political rhetoric to soften in the wake of the June 14 shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise by a Bernie Sanders fan. And he’ll do his part by shelving his own ugly comments regarding the modern Left. But what about angry liberal actor George Takei?
As Montel Williams appeared on Friday's CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin to discuss his recent USA Today article attacking Republican plans to repeal ObamaCare, the former talk show host accused congressional Republicans of not caring about their own family members and of supporting a plan that would send their relatives and 140 million other Americans to "death." Williams: "They are going to be looking for somebody to give them medication and health care. And what this bill does is sends them all to death. ... This Congress is the richest Congress we've ever had in history. They can afford premium health care. They don't care about even their own family members -- their cousins, their aunts or uncles or nieces who they all know have just been sentenced to death."
The gender deconstructionists on the Left are now using PBS to push only their viewpoint. On June 19, the documentary-film series Independent Lens aired a one-hour film called Real Boy. The star, naturally, was a girl named Rachael who wants to be a boy named Bennett, and her goal in this film was “top surgery,” known in less euphemistic terms as breast amputation. The “balance” in this film was Rachael’s mother Suzy, who the gay activists at the “NBC Out” website described as “frustratingly apprehensive.”
On Friday, Slate's Christina Cauterucci bewailed a new iPhone app released by a pro-life organization as a "discomfiting invasion of privacy or a gigantic lie." The program helps pro-life activists pray for pregnant women who are considering abortion. Cauterucci used the app as a jumping-off point to condemn the existence of crisis pregnancy centers and lament the New York Times' decision to publish two pro-life opinion pieces in 2017.
In Friday’s edition of liberal media double standards, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News saw no reason to cover new audio out of Nebraska in which a state Democratic Party official used an expletive to proclaim he’s “glad” Republican Congressman Steve Scalise (La.) “got shot” on June 14.
Pulitzer-Prize winning American novelist Michael Chabon rather desperately hates Donald Trump, In an interview on an Israeli radio show in Tel Aviv, he discussed how he woke up every day hoping Trump will suffer a “massive stroke” and be “carted out of the White House on a gurney.”
Many in the Left-stream media count themselves as apologists for free agent quarterback/Black Lives Matter activist Colin Kaepernick. Among them are ESPN and the Washington Post, media which are also in full support of a children's football team that staged a copycat protest of the national anthem, though it caused internal division and ruined the team's season.
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan used to write for CBS News, including the radio commentaries of Dan Rather, so she can speculate from an insider perspective. Her latest column insists “Dislike of Mr. Trump within the mainstream media is unalterable. It permeates every network, from intern to executive producer and CEO.” Like many on the right, Noonan has not been a big Trump fan, but she can see how dramatically the media is arrayed against the president. She has a unique theory -- the liberal media think their bias isn't only striking a blow for justice, but a smart business strategy.
On Thursday's The 11th Hour on MSNBC, during a discussion of the debate over ObamaCare repeal, former Time magazine editor Rick Stengel -- also a former Obama administration official -- asserted that Republicans view health care as a "privilege" like a "concierge service" or "entitlement" that should be "starved."
On Friday, ABC’s Good Morning America could not contain its disgust over the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upholding a Mississippi religious freedom law that protects business owners with religious objections from being forced to participate in gay weddings, among other provisions.
On Friday’s Morning Joe, MSNBC panelist Donny Deutsch pushed the typical liberal “tax cuts for the rich” narrative as he slammed the Republican health care reform bill: "The other side of the aisle will call this as a redistribution of wealth. Obviously, parties are given to hyperbole, but the reality according to the Center [for] Tax Policy is that 90 percent of the benefits in this plan go to families making $700,000 a year..."
File this one under, ‘no, this not a joke.’ For Friday’s off-camera White House press briefing, CNN hired a sketch artist to render images of press secretary Sean Spicer as yet another example of their pathetic meltdowns over the Trump communications team’s decisions about access.
If you believe that the news media's coverage of allegations involving President Donald Trump has been irresponsible and over-dramatized, you’re not alone. According to a new poll released by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal, 50 percent of participants believe the media have favored people making allegations against the Republican occupant of the White House; 34 percent think the media have been responsible; and 12 percent say the media have been too restrained.
On June 23, 2017, Rolling Stone published an interview with Sammy Hagar, former lead singer of the iconic 1980’s band Van Halen. When asked about the political climate, Hagar revealed an attitude entirely different from most celebrities -- an attitude of hope in America’s current President.
CNN hosts once again trotted out Jeffrey Toobin, their left-wing political commentator dressed up as a legal analyst, to trash Republicans. Toobin on Thursday expressed his frustration that the media is being distracted by Trump’s tweets when they could be talking about the horrors of the GOP health bill.
