On Thursday’s Good Morning America, ABC promoted yet another viciously anti-Catholic television show, this time on HBO called The Young Pope. The show stars Jude Law as a presently instated amoral and power-hungry American pope. The ABC panel introduced the show as “controversial” and “sparking outrage” before dismissing it as only unwatchable because it was “boring.” Yet the fact that ABC spent time covering the show without actually passing judgement or warning of it’s content, shows where the network really stands on promoting anti-Catholic “entertainment.”
At Wednesday's White House press briefing, Obama administration Press Secretary Josh Earnest, in a fit of completely unsupported arrogance, claimed that 805,000 jobs have been created "while President Obama was in office," and that "President Obama has set a high standard" in that regard.
The lazy stenographers posing as journalists present at the briefing, along with other reporters covering Carrier Corp.'s decision not to move its Indianapolis manufacturing jobs to Mexico, have failed to recognize what anyone whose job it has been to follow the economy during the Obama administration should know, namely that the economy, through October 2016, has fewer manufacturing jobs now than it did when President Obama took office in January 2009.
Congressional reporter Carl Hulse’s “On Washington” column, demonstrated Hulse’s eternal optimism on behalf of the Democratic Party. Even after a breathtaking setback on all levels just three weeks ago, Hulse has quickly switched back into his typical pro-Dem wishful thinking for Thursday’s “Democrats See Medicare as Winning Wedge Issue.” He’s written this article hundreds of times, focusing on some issue -- or more likely non-issue -- that will guarantee Democrats a permanent victory and drive Republicans down
ABC commentator Cokie Roberts rudely dismissed former Governor of Alaska and John McCain running-mate Sarah Palin as “a laughingstock” on Thursday’s Good Morning America. Discussing rumors that Donald Trump is considering Palin for Secretary of Veterans Affairs, anchor Robin Roberts brought in longtime journalist Cokie Roberts to get her thoughts on the potential pick. Cokie was dismissive from the start, bashing Palin as a joke and predicting she would be a problem in Congress.
College campuses nationwide responded to Donald Trump’s election by providing “safe spaces” for distressed students to discuss their feelings on the election, challenge-free. Students were coddled with coloring books, Play-Doh, bubble-blowing toys, snacks, stuffed animals, and real animals to calm them down. Some colleges cancelled classes and exams. Podcast comedian Adam Carolla and radio talk-show host Dennis Prager will set out to challenge these campuses with their documentary, “No Safe Spaces.” According to The Hollywood Reporter the documentary will feature the two touring college campuses to talk and debate with students and faculty about their precious “safe spaces.”
ABC's Designated Survivor trotted out the tired trope of the "anti-government militia" right-wing terrorist group during Wednesday night's episode "The Results."
In the new Winter issue of Jocks & Nerds magazine, singer John Legend sounded more like a promotional advertisement for President Barack Obama’s presidency… than say…a celebrity entertainer interviewed for a publication. Obama is "scandal-free"? We are "already missing" the Obamas?
During an extended interview on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Wednesday night, things got a little heated between Cooper and Senator Elizabeth Warren. The almost 25-minute-long interview grew tense when Cooper grilled Warren on how out of touch the Democratic Party is with Middle America. “When you look at that electoral map, I mean, there is blue on both coasts basically, and there is a lot of red in the entire rest of the country,” he noted before asking, “Do you feel like you are out of touch?”
On the Wednesday edition of the Fox News Channel’s Special Report, conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham and her fellow panelists thoroughly excoriated President Barack Obama for a hypocritical and “infantile” attack on the cable network’s reach leading to Donald Trump’s election that’s grown to become a tiring “common thread” for the duration of presidency.
When Donald Trump is POTUS, he’s likely to get deferential, even helpful, media coverage, predicted Atrios on Monday. After all, he explained, that’s been the pattern for Republican presidents since the 1980s. When Ronald Reagan was in the White House, Atrios alleged, “members of the press knew that [he] had some form of dementia, that he was not actually fit to run the country, and they covered it up because the feefees of America would be hurt because Reagan was the most popular president in the history of the universe. Of course he wasn't the most popular president by any reasonable measure, but the press loved him so America loved him and they added 10 extra points to his popularity rating in their minds. They did that for [George W. Bush], also, too.”
On Wednesday's CNN Newsroom, host Brianna Keilar devoted a full segment to a college student in Michigan who will be an elector for Donald Trump when the Electoral College meets, and gave attention to his experience of receiving death threats from some who want him to change his vote. After recalling some of the threats, Michael Banerian also informed viewers that, by Michigan law, he and other electors from the state must vote for the candidate who won Michigan's popular vote or else they would simply be replaced by someone else.
The media’s hypocritical obsession of dismissing fake news as largely the right’s problem was on display for disaffected viewers on CNN Wednesday afternoon as host Brooke Baldwin and her panel hailed the “high” “journalistic standards” of fake-rape-story-peddling Rolling Stone in their “Shakespearean tragedy” of a post-election interview with President Obama.
Twitter is a great place for journalists to vent and to leak their liberal bias for all to see. And exactly that happened Tuesday night when CBS Boston Freelance Writer David Leavitt tweeted, “’Trump died sleeping’ #CalmMeDownIn3Words.” Leavitt’s tweet has garnered over 900 retweets, more than 2,300 likes, and almost 2,000 responses, many of them negative.
After more than three weeks since Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election on November 8, the liberals in the entertainment industry still have not accepted the fact that Republican Donald Trump won the contest, and they use every chance they get to slam the president-elect.
One such incident was the Gotham Awards, which are held every year on the Monday after Thanksgiving in New York City, when actor Ethan Hawke stated: “Whenever faced with fascism, the artistic community generally rises to the occasion.”
On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, as the usual liberal commentators and co-hosts were discussing the ongoing Trump transition appointments to the most important economic positions in the federal government, co-host Willie Geist invited and asked New York Times journalist David Leonhardt: “So, do you do you read anything into these appointments in the last 24 hours, to Commerce Secretary Wilber Ross or Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin?”
