Last week, vehement anti-Trumper George Will declared that conservatism in 2017 is “soiled by scowling primitives.” Washington Monthly blogger Martin Longman doesn’t disagree, but he contends that Will is partly to blame for that sordid state of affairs.
VH1 premiered its new scripted series Daytime Divas on Monday, June 6, with lots of drama, catfighting, and controversy. The show is based on the book Satan’s Sisters by Star Jones, former co-host of The View, and follows the lives of female daytime talk TV hosts of The Lunch Hour and their behind-the-scenes interactions.
MSNBC’s faulty political historian, Katy Tur filled in for Chuck Todd during MTP Daily on Monday, where she dedicated a significant portion of the show railing against President Trump and claiming he was untrustworthy. “I'm in the chair for @MeetThePress Daily. Tonight we're focusing on trust. Do Americans have it for Trump? Does Trump have it for his NSC,” she announced in a tweet before the show.
Former FBI Director James Comey is set to speak before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday after recently getting permission from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is now in charge of the FBI’s Russian meddling investigation. Comey is expected to field questions about a series of memos he allegedly wrote that unnamed sources claim to show that President Trump attempted to interfere with the said investigation. During their Monday evening broadcasts, ABC and CBS were eagerly awaiting the day of the hearing.
On the Monday edition of the Fox Business Network’s Risk and Reward, the Media Research Center’s Tim Graham annihilated CNN’s lukewarm response to Believe host Reza Aslan’s vulgar tweet attacking President Donald Trump following Saturday night’s London terror attacks.
With their much hoped-for Seattle Seahawks-Colin Kaepernick dream team now reduced to dust in the wind, many in the left-stream sports media are crying unsportsmanlike conduct and some say he has a right to be on an NFL team.
Ali Velshi took a moment at the end of his broadcast Monday to parrot one of the Left’s favorite bumper stickers on the nature of Islamism. He gently turned to the camera, and offered to impart a much needed lesson upon the recalcitrant masses. These jihadists, aside from the mass body counts, broken families, and permanently disfigured survivors left in their wake, caused a scourge almost worse: intolerance.
Saturday on MSNBC’s AM JOY a panel of all Trump critics decided to blame the sitting President for all hate crimes on U.S soil for the past two years, forgetting he’s only been president for 136 days.
Showtime’s new comedy I’m Dying Up Here premiered on Sunday, June 4. The show, produced by Jim Carrey, centers around a group of up and coming comics trying to become successful in the 1970s. Right off the bat, the show dove into the controversial topic of abortion, with the comic applauding the legalization of abortion. He encourages all the men to cheer, saying, "That's a big win for us, too."
These days, politics is always in fashion. At tonight’s Council of Fashion Designers (CFDA) Gala, there’ll be talk of both pleats and protests, raglan and resistance. The event – usually tame on the political front – will this year highlight radical feminist icon Gloria Steinem, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, and actress and Black Lives Matter supporter Janelle Monae.
Appearing on Monday’s NBC Today, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway ripped into the network for its “one-sided” hyperbolic coverage of President Trump’s Twitter reaction to Saturday’s London terror attack, calling out the liberal media “obsession” with his tweets.
The panelists of MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Monday agonized over possible repercussions likely to result from President Trump’s tweet attacking London Mayor for his comments that Londoners ‘have no reason to be alarmed.’ “It’s absolute nonsense,” Economist editor-in-chief Zanny Minton Beddoes proclaimed before smugly stating, “There’s been a huge swell of support for Sadiq Khan and it obviously reflects very badly on the President. It makes the Brits just think what planet is he on? It's really damaging.”
Both Refinery29 and The Leftovers creator Damon Lindelof want a very specific addition to the television industry in order to solve the problem of female objectification. They want to “normalize male nudity on television,” according to Lindelof.
Refinery29 writer Britni de la Cretaz defended the statement made by saying that this addition would lead to “less objectifying nude images of women, and more positive visuals overall.” However, it is not clear how showing more and more images of naked men would enhance respect for women. In addition, part of this appeal seems to involve a call for more depictions of gay sex on television, which would evidently enhance the quality of entertainment offered to the American public.
When the Kremlin banned Jehovah’s Witnesses from publicly practicing their faith in Russia, the big three broadcast networks remained silent. Now, as religious freedom violations escalate, the silence shamefully continues. Late last month, members of Russia’s FSB security service raided a private residence where a Bible study was taking place.
In a late Friday post, the McClatchy news service freaked out over the revelation that Republicans and right-of-center strategists are gunning to make the 2018 midterm elections a referendum on liberal media bias, contrasted with the strategy of liberals and their media allies to focus on President Trump.
