Every major news outlet is reporting that President Trump will likely cancel the controversial Paris Climate Agreement. President Barack Obama intentionally avoided signing a climate treaty because it probably wouldn’t have passed the Senate.
On Wednesday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur was freaking out over President Trump’s overnight Twitter typo, even to the point of absurdly warning that the commander-in-chief’s use of social media could lead to a nuclear war.
Although the liberal media often downplay attacks against the faithful, a new report released this week presents incontrovertible proof that the U.S. government is increasingly hostile to religion. In “Undeniable: The Survey of Hostility to Religion in America,” First Liberty Institute listed more than 1200 government-initiated attacks on religion in 2016 alone. The report divides these cases into four spheres – the public arena, the schoolhouse, churches and ministries and the military.
While Trump is getting flack for ‘covfefe’ and his probable exit from the Paris agreement, Modern Family cast member Ariel Winter has decided that Trump is the sole reason women are objectified. In an interview with Refinery29, the actress shared her thoughts on people who have been shaming her for her selfies that show her scantily clad. She also shared her thoughts on why the Hollywood culture is so into body-shaming and objectifying women.
On Tuesday Rapper Nasir Jones (better known as Nas) attacked Donald Trump as a racist and linked former President Ronald Reagan to forces that “ruthlessly destroyed the black community.” In a May 30 piece for MassAppeal.com, the hip-hop star bizarrely boasted “I don’t pay attention to politics at the moment. For what? There’s no reason. For me, it doesn’t make any sense. We all know a racist is in office.”
Seth Borenstein's Saturday dispatch at the Associated Press on how it "Doesn’t look good for Earth" if the United States under President Trump "quits" the 2015 Paris climate is about as fakey as fake news gets. It's also sloppy and inconsistent in its terminology, and misleading about the nature and timing of what former President Obama's pledge would require the U.S. to do — while letting expanding greenhouse gas emitters like China off the hook.
The irony. After taking Miss USA to task over her statement on health care as a “privilege,” rather than a “right,” BuzzFeed has detailed the horrific failings of a significant public health care system.
On May 30, Karla Zabludovsky of BuzzFeed News wrote a piece exposing the Venezuela’s dysfunctional health care system. The piece, entitled ‘These People Had A Chance At Life. Venezuela Is Taking It Away,’ exposed the breakdown of socialist Venezuela’s public health care system. “The health care system is on the brink of total collapse and patients who thought they were in the clear are back to fighting a harsh reality,” wrote Zabludovsky. “Doctors . . . perform surgery with antiquated equipment in operating rooms cleaned with dirty water.”
The media frenzy over expectations President Donald Trump will abandon the climate agreement signed in Paris by Obama has only just begun — and it’s already out of control.
Prior to his appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to sponsor his new book, co-host Mika Brzezinski praised Senator Al Franken as following in the steps of previous US political titans Daniel Webster and Henry Clay. The interview that then followed was one of softballs and grounders as the panel incessantly gushed and awed over the Senator’s presence. It was a sharp contrast to the reception later given to Senator Mike Lee of Utah.
On Wednesday afternoon, CNN announced that it has fired far-left lewd comedienne Kathy Griffin from her long-running New Year’s Eve show after Griffin took a page from ISIS’s playbook 24 hours earlier by holding up a bloodied (but fake) severed head pretending to be President Trump.
Michael Calderone at HuffPost reported The New York Times is abolishing its office of “Public Editor,” established in the wake of the Jayson Blair fake-news scandal in 2003. Liz Spayd, the current staffer in that office, is effectively done, after only one year in the job, instead of an expected two-year term.
Once again, it is highly ironic that the nation’s top newspapers rage about the president being unaccountable to the public, while they abolish their own offices for dealing with reader complaints. It’s safe to guess they especially hate any articles about ideologically motivated bias and inaccuracy.
Deadline: Hollywood, The Hollywood Reporter, The Wrap, and others reported early Wednesday morning that longtime CBS News correspondent, CBS This Morning: Saturday co-host, and regular fill-in personality Anthony Mason will receive the interim CBS Evening News anchor job following Scott Pelley’s firing.
Chelsea Clinton is making her rounds in the media this week to promote her new children’s feminist book, (that includes a special cameo of her mother!), aptly titled "She Persisted." After one fawning interview on NBC’s Today show Tuesday, Clinton was ready for another cushy interview on Wednesday’s The View.
Salon has found a “poignant” comparison to make about Trump. His administration and the resistance to it are like Hydra Corporation dealing with Marvel heroes. In a review of the latest season of Agents of SHIELD, a television program that follows the intelligence service, known as SHIELD, in their battle against the fascist Hydra, Salon writer Amanda Marcotte lauded the producers of the show for doing “a remarkable job shaping the latter half of this season into a horror-show mirror of what it feels like for liberals living in Trump’s America.”
While NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday devoted full reports to comedian Kathy Griffin’s widely-condemned mock beheading of an effigy of President Trump, CBS This Morning could only afford a 36-second news brief on the topic. By contrast, when an Republican congressional staffer criticized the behavior of the Obama daughters at a White House event on her private Facebook page in 2014, the CBS morning show had no trouble devoting full coverage to the minor controversy.
