According to CBS on Tuesday, the fight over a bathroom bill in Texas is a battle between moderates and the “far right.” Before labeling conservatives as fringe-y types, This Morning reporter David Begnaud hyped, “You got one estimate that says Texas could lose five and a half billion dollars if these bathroom bills become the laws.”
When only one side of a controversial public policy issue is presented, you know you're watching propaganda, not news. This is exactly what Univision pushes out, as part of its ongoing effort to smear lawful gun owners.
On Tuesday, the hosts and correspondents of NBC’s Today could not contain their excitement as they gloated over the failure of the Republican Senate health care bill. “For seven years Republican lawmakers have vowed to overturn ObamaCare, but this morning their latest plan has come to a screeching halt,” proclaimed fill-in co-host Willie Geist.
At their best, sports represent a place where Americans can come together – no matter their differences – to root for their team. Despite the best efforts of liberals at ESPN and other sports media outlets, sports largely defy politics. It’s what makes them special. Important.
But one professional women’s basketball team (and, of course, its media fans) couldn’t care less about being divisive.
On CNN's New Day Tuesday morning, CNN Global Economic Analyst Rana Foroohar advocated for a single-payer health care system while co-host Alisyn Camerota misrepresented statements made by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).
New on July 17: Len Downie, former executive editor of the Washington Post and an editor during the Watergate era, bemoaning how the proliferation in media outlets means that now, unlike during Watergate, coverage of supposed Trump scandals is being undermined because there’s a “right wing press that is not concerned about facts.”
Could someone remind me how old President Donald Trump was at the time of the real life evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940? Oh, he still wouldn't be born for another six years? Really? However, this did not prevent Rolling Stone movie reviewer Peter Travers from invoking his name in a negative way from out of nowhere in the middle of a review of what looks to be an outstanding film, "Dunkirk."
Jessica Lange, star of FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan, told The Hollywood Reporter Americans currently live in history’s most misogynist era. Ah, the invincible ignorance of spoiled, self-important liberal celebrities!
With a Democratic Party dominated by the 69-year-old Hillary Clinton and the 68-year-old Elizabeth Warren, the journalists at CBS This Morning are apparently desperate to find a young, dynamic leader for the liberal cause. Apparently, they’ve found him. Not a senator or a governor, but the mayor of South Bend Indiana.
Hootie Johnson, former chairman of the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga., home of The Master’s Golf Tournament, died on Friday at age 86. The New York Times recognized him in an obituary by Richard Goldstein and could not resist getting in last swings at its unlikely foe. In 2002-03, Johnson was in the paper’s cross-hairs for refusing to admit women members to Augusta National. In a notorious editorial in November 2002, “America’s All-Male Golfing Society,” obsessive anti-Augusta crusader and Times executive editor Howell Raines even suggested Tiger Woods, then king of the golf world, boycott the tournament in solidarity. Raines targeted CBS as well, which had the broadcast rights to the tournament, and did multiple stories, many on the front page, keeping the pressure on CBS and Augusta National.
Keith Olbermann doubled down on his ridiculous accusations of treason against the Trump family with a tweet Monday morning. In response to President Trump’s tweet that most politicians would’ve gone to the meeting his son attended Olbermann replied, “Sure! Benedict Arnold would have. And Aaron Burr. And Charles Lindbergh. And Quisling. And Marshal Petain. That's politics! Annnnnd treason!” The initial charges of treason were idiotic enough, but now Donald Trump Jr. equates to the greatest traitor in American history?
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Someone exposes the hate and hypocrisy of the super tolerant left and is mercilessly punished for it. In this case, it’s an award-winning LGBT reporter for a gay newspaper who stumbled on gay activists’ antisemitism and is a reporter no longer.
President Donald Trump has a knack for getting under the liberal media’s skin and driving them into hyperbolic criticisms of just about everything he does. Whether it was tweeting out a goofy .gif of him wrestling CNN to the ground, or delivering a patriotic speech overseas the press couldn’t contain their overreactions. The following is a collection of worst media and celebrity outbursts from the past few weeks:
Former Vice President-turned-global warming activist Al Gore has been making his media rounds this week to promote his new film, An Inconvenient Sequel (which is of course the sequel to An Inconvenient Truth.) Monday night he appeared on Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show, where the severely anti-Trump host spent nearly the entire interview asking about the president.
The liberal media would have you believe Russian involvement in the U.S. is new and tied solely to the Trump administration. But records from 2010 and 2011 reveal Russia may have funded U.S.-based environmental groups, 10 of which are also backed by liberal billionaire George Soros.
