Over the past few weeks, the Democrats/media have been pushing the narrative that evil Senate Republicans are hiding their non-existent health care bill from the public. CNN New Day host Chris Cuomo went as far as to say...
Whenever the mainstream media awards a participation trophy to the loser of an election, it is sure bet they are awarding it to a Democrat. Such was the case with the June 17 Politico which awarded a participation trophy to Jason Kander who lost the 2016 U.S. Senate race from Missouri. No matter. As far as Politico is concerned he was really a winner as you can see from their title, How Jason Kander Won by Losing.
What makes this article particularly amusing is how far overboard Politico writer Edward-Isaac Dovere goes in hyping the future political career of Kander. Dovere made it seem like it was just a minor detail that Kander actually LOST the election.
On Monday, both NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America used Democratic Party talking points to hype Tuesday’s upcoming congressional special election in Georgia as a “referendum” on Donald Trump’s presidency. Hosts and correspondents repeated the phrase multiple times and eagerly touted how “Democrats now see an opening” in the race.
It’s a rare day indeed when CNN applauds a pro-life politician, never mind a woman who refused abortion against her doctor’s advice. But that’s exactly what just happened.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid accused Republicans of trying to “make themselves the victim” on her Sunday show, not even a week after the attempted assassination of GOP lawmakers.
Television’s favorite news couple, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, continued to push the mainstream media narrative that Trump is responsible for the nation’s toxic political climate on Monday's Morning Joe. Reading from a New York Times piece by Frank Bruni, Brzezinski quoted, “Lately Trump and his children have been playing the victims of all of this, but save your tears. He has been an enormous part of the problem.” She was all too happy to agree with the sentiment, stating, “I think the difference now is that the President is a part of it....I think it’s fueling the fire.”
What could Democratic Senator Al Franken and actress Olivia Wilde talk about at lunch? Trump and lies, of course. In an interview with Philip Galanes, for the New York Times, the unlikely pair compared notes on lying, Trump, and how the new administration is, according to Wilde, “straight out of 1984.”
You may believe Hollywood touts a strong pro-choice bias. And according to a recent poll, most Americans would agree with you.
Rewind to January 2017 – a politically fraught month, with the Women’s March and March for Life scheduled back-to-back, not to mention President Trump’s Inauguration. Twenty million viewers were watching Meryl Streep vent about politics and call Hollywood and the press “the most vilified segments in American society right now.” She also lauded Hollywood’s impressive cultural diversity.
After Wednesday’s attempted murder of Republican congressmen, their staffs, and a protective detail by a far-left activist, NBC’s Tom Brokaw went in the opposite direction, lecturing views on Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly about how America faces the “common threats” of conspiracy theorists like 9/11 truther Alex Jones.
Judicial Watch recently filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice after uncovering evidence it forced companies to give money to left-wing nonprofits during the Obama administration — nonprofits which also received millions from billionaire George Soros and other liberal foundations.
On the June 11 NBC Nightly News, correspondent Lucy Kafanov voiced nostalgia for the days of communism as she reported on poverty in rural Russia. "It wasn't always like this," Kafanov argued. "In the Soviet era, most villagers worked on huge collective farms. Life wasn't easy, but the government provided for the people."
Desperate to make some sort of historical connection, ABC and MSNBC over the weekend devoted a whopping four hours to prime time documentaries on Watergate. Aging documentaries aren’t exactly the first choice of these outlets, but as Robert Redford made clear on MSNBC, Saturday, America is close to a second Watergate: “Leaks. Secret tapes. Special prosecutors and presidential paranoia. When I hear those words today, they have a familiar echo to me.”
Saturday evening, Eric Tucker and Erica Werner at the Associated Press were clearly determined to tell readers as little as they possibly could about the list of GOP lawmakers' names found on James Hodgkinson after he was killed trying to assassinate several congressmen and others present at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia on Wednesday. In doing so, the AP pair failed to disclose details already reported by several media outlets.
Season Two of Comedy Central’s Legends of Chamberlain Heights kicked off its first episode titled “The G-Word” Sunday night. G stands for gentrification and the hood isn’t happy about it. Along the way, hipsters and the intrusion of CNN’s Don Lemon are solidly mocked.
Showtime’s new show I’m Dying Up Here is already well past the level of even pretending to be decent, so I’ll just get right to it. We’re three episodes in, and the show has not yet improved on the over-played cursing, the most degrading crude humor, and the occasional near-nudity. This week, however, the show decided to drag fatherhood down with it…on Father’s Day, of all times.
