Tinfoil hats are rarely a good look -- even the chic designer kind Hollywood celebrities can afford. But here come TV stars Alyssa Milano and Misha Collins, barking conspiracy theories and joining the throng of actors who want to be activists. Amber Tamblyn, see what you started?

The Daily Beast’s Marlow Stern started his interview with Milano with this introduction, “When it comes to 80’s TV icons the right may have Chachi [Scott Baio] but the left has Milano.” Which, honestly, is delicious, since Milano’s latest claim to fame is that she may have indirectly assisted Republican Karen Handel to win Georgia’s special election against Jon Ossoff last month. Milano campaigned heavily for Ossoff over Twitter, mainly because Ossoff -- most of whose money came from Hollywood -- supported abortion rights, while Handel was pro-life.


New poll findings reveal that the liberal media, applaud abortion “healthcare” as “moral,” are out of touch with nearly half of the United States. And so, while the media readily cite polls supporting their agenda, it’s doubtful they’ll report this one.


MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews wasn’t done on Thursday night with the ridiculous comparisons involving Donald Trump, ending the show by comparing the President to O.J. Simpson in that he wants all government attorneys “to serve as his personal Johnnie Cochrans and Special Counsels named specifically to investigate him.”


Sean Spicer resigned as White House Press Secretary on Friday. Journalists immediately jumped on this as an example of yet more turmoil and harped on Spicer’s “missteps.” But White House tumult is hardly new, even for Presidents who would go on to serve two terms. ABC should know, considering that the network admitted in 1993 that then-President Bill Clinton “shunted aside” top aide George Stephanopoulos in favor of “grown-up” David Gergen. Stephanopoulos would go on to eventually host Good Morning America on the network. 


On CNN Tonight Thursday, a panel discussion on O.J. Simpson’s parole verdict earlier that day veered into politics, after one guest related the treatment of Simpson to Black Lives Matter. CNN legal analyst Areva Martin compared the reactions to yesterday’s verdict as racial, insinuating that whites angry over it were treating Simpson more harshly than they would a white person who did “much worse” things. After this comment, she got into a back-and-forth argument with former Simpson legal advisor Alan Dershowitz over the criminal justice system and Black Lives Matter.

 

For at least one New York Times political reporter, the Trump presidency is literally a joke. Matt Flegenheimer’s Washington Memo was headlined “Like a ‘Soap Opera,’ Only Not as Fun.” The text box longed for better, non-Trump days: “If only it were all just the figment of the imagination.” He wrote: It’s Iran-contra with a spray tan, Lewinsky with a grande covfefe. Exploring the studio space, Flegenheimer sounded like an improv comedian: "It's 'The Godfather,' but this time there’s a silent son-in-law in charge of Middle East peace for some reason."


At roughly nine o’clock Eastern Time Fox News Channel’s Ed Henry broke in with breaking news from the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado. At the forum, CIA Director Mike Pompeo took to the stage slammed The New York Times for putting the life of an officer at risk. “We had a publication, you work for Bret, that published the name of an undercover officer at the Central Intelligence Agency. I find that unconscionable,” he angrily declared to the applause of the audience.


As a show that’s supposed to be highlighting the downfall of social structure as monsters reign around the city, Spike’s The Mist is…surprisingly dull. Maybe it’s because the series depends on me caring about paper-thin liberal stereotypes as they dryly whisper through their been-there, done-that TV problems and are momentarily distracted by fog and the occasional gratuitous death scene. When that doesn’t work? Throw in another cliché!


In the wake of President Trump’s interview with The New York Times, where he hammered his Attorney General and pressed on the Russia investigation, MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber demonstrated that NBC can’t get its story straight. “And with regard to [Special Counsel] Mueller … just to be clear, neither the new FBI director nor the president has any ability to remove the special counsel,” Melber told colleague Katy Tur during Thursday’s MTP Daily. But just over a month earlier, their colleagues were freaking out about just that.


Retired NFL quarterback Michael Vick continues to draw backlash for his comments Monday that it would be in Colin Kaepernick’s best interests to clip his hair and become more “presentable.” SB Nation writer Tyler Tynes posted one of the strongest disagreements yet by claiming that Vick is advocating for “respectability politics” and white oppression.


President Donald Trump was compared to another murderous world dictator on Thursday night as MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews suggested Trump is just like former Ugandan dictator Idi Amin and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un since Trump and Kim “love the parades” where they can serve as the star alongside military demonstrations.


In Thursday’s edition of liberal hypocrisy, long-time liberal news anchor and deceptive video editor Katie Couric bemoaned to the New York Daily News that fake news is currently “tearing” the U.S. “apart at the seams” with “quite educated” friends falling for fake stories while assigning no blame to the liberal media establishment she’s been a part of for decades.


As all the major news networks this week have highlighted the tragic case of Minnesota bride-to-be Justine Damond being shot to death by a police officer, far-left News One Now host Roland Martin -- who sometimes appears on MSNBC -- has conspicuously given no attention to the story even while continuing to update viewers on high-profile cases of blacks being killed by the police.


It wasn't all acting. The incredibly loud-mouthed, obnoxious character of Erlich Bachman on HBO's comedy hit, Silicon Valley, seems to be matched in these characteristics by the actor who portrayed him, T.J. Miller. Miller last made the news in a big way when he was arrested last December for hitting his Uber driver for the high crime of not sharing his Trump Derangement Syndrome.


When the big networks realized that President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin had a second discussion in Germany, they went nuts. The coverage made it seem like a dark and sinister deal was struck in a hidden alley. In reality, the President went over to talk to Putin at a G-20 dinner in front of every major world leader and enough media to make your head spin. Despite this fact, the media portrayed the "meeting," if you can call it that, as "secret" and "undisclosed."
