The journalists at CBS This Morning on Tuesday examined the lack of civility in America and, somehow, managed to avoid discussing the attempted slaughter of Republican members of Congress by a rage-filled Bernie Sanders supporter. Trying to murder your political opponents would seem to be a rather uncivil action.
The liberal Washington Post underlined its reputation as a liberal rag on Tuesday by burying the immigration status of a man who killed a Muslim teenager in suburban northern Virginia. They wear "Democracy Dies in Darkness" T-shirts and then put anything in the "darkness" that's inconvenient to their liberal agenda. You had to read all the way to paragraph 23 of a front-page story before they included an indirect allusion to deportation proceedings.
Producer-singer-songwriter and boyfriend of Lena Dunham, Jack Antonoff, has fallen into a nearly ubiquitous celebrity trend: creating an echo chamber of empty political commentary. Josh Duboff of interviewed Antonoff June 15, 2017. The musician’s comments on the President and his family were particularly nasty – and, frankly, false.
U2 bassist Adam Clayton has joined the ranks of his fellow bandmembers in levying judgment on the rise of the Trump administration. In his words, the “vision of America is gone. It’s a much harsher world.” In an interview with Variety, the musician spoke about his work with MusiCares, a program that helps musicians with addictions, and the struggle to stay relevant in modern society. Clayton made it clear that he does not actually struggle with staying relevant because hopefully U2’s new music will speak to the people who suffer from a lack of democracy.
A crazed leftist attempts to kill Republicans on a baseball field, a local candidate beats up a reporter, and an increase in traffic deaths. What do these all have in common? Liberal journalists managed to blame all of these incidents on President Donald Trump. The following is a collection of worst media and celebrity outbursts from the past few weeks.
During the June 16 episode of Netflix’s Chelsea titled “Tear Down These Walls,” CNN anchor Don Lemon let slip a bit of real news – he thinks that Trump Derangement Syndrome is alive and well among progressives in America and he thinks it is dangerous.
The liberal taxpayer-funded PBS focused June 19’s episode of its Independent Lens film series on a teen’s transgenderism. Bennett (or Ben), formerly known as Rachael, transitioned from a girl to a boy because, as he it summed up, “I am a boy with the wrong body parts.” At 19 years old, Ben started taking testosterone to begin his transformation into a boy. But he says his decision was a long time in the making. He even claimed that when he was younger, he “hated using the women's restrooms.
In the episode of VH1’s Daytime Divas that aired on June 19 titled “Blind Items,” more time was devoted to portraying the conservative Christian show host as a pervert. In last week’s episode the fact that Heather (Fiona Gubelmann) and her race car driver husband participate in S&M while Heather recites Bible verses was introduced. Apparently, this is to be a continuing theme.
On Sunday afternoon, the body of Nabra Hassanen, a 17-year-old Muslim girl from Virginia, was discovered by police after going missing earlier that morning. The story went viral Monday with accusations that she was targeted because of her religion. According to authorities, that was not the motive of her attacker, 22-year-old Darwin Martinez Torres, road rage was. In addition, they believe him to be an illegal immigrant. Only ABC reported the story Monday evening, but they failed to mention his legal status.
Univision’s coverage of the fallout of the Puerto Rican status referendum, which saw statehood garner a whopping 97% of the vote, is what one would expect it to be. This means that supporters of statehood for America's largest territory would be foolish to ever expect a fair shake from the network.
Tragic news broke Monday evening when the family of Otto Warmbier, the American college student taken by North Korea and returned in a coma, put out a statement that their son passed had away earlier that afternoon. “Unfortunately, the awful torturous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today,” the statement said. When Otto was first detained by the Communist regime, multiple outlets mocked his arrest and impending doom.
Is there anything richer than the toxically biased liberal media lecturing the rest of the country about the need for comity and bipartisanship? We're two years into an epic crusade of Trump-trashing, and they're telling the rest of America to calm down and not lurch into hyperbole. Cue Time magazine, with its infamous melty-face covers of Trump -- the wishful-thinking meltdown covers didn't get Hillary elected, although they get an A for Aggression.
Time magazine put Uber, and not Steve Scalise, on the cover of its June 26 edition. Washington bureau chief Michael Scherer penned a brief article headlined "A shooting and the risks of political outrage." This came six pages into their section "The Brief." Then they blurred the Scalise shooting with....Greg Gianforte pushing a reporter down.
The U.S. Supreme Court refused a lawyer’s appeal trying to force Chevron to pay almost $9 billion for pollution in Ecuador. Earlier court ruled the decision against Chevron was obtained through corruption actions.
Reuters reported on June 19, that the court’s decision not to take the case leaves earlier district and appellate court victories standing for the nation’s second largest oil company. Chevron’s court victories were previously ignored by the liberal news media years after CBS promoted the attack.
As the three broadcast network evening newscasts on Friday informed viewers that former Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez was found not guilty of committing manslaughter last year against black motorist Philando Castile, CBS conspicuously omitted two facets of the case that help explain why he was acquitted. More than a year ago, Castile was tragically shot to death by Officer Yanez after Castile -- who had a concealed carry permit and therefore no criminal record -- informed the officer that he possessed a firearm during a traffic stop.
It’s often disheartening to hear some of the despicable things the audience of ABC’s The View will applaud for. Whoopi Goldberg and her compatriots talked about Cuban relations on Monday and parroted loony moral equivocations between human rights in America and Cuba made by Cuban officials. The audience, eager to shower their undying loyalty, erupted in applause as Whoopi repeated the communist regime's talking points.
