The gender wage gap is often grossly overstated — a problem driven by Hollywood and the media. In this week’s AlliKat Show, Alli Nielsen and Kat Yoder take on a new video from The Huffington Post called “Pinksourcing.” The comedy sketch perpetuated exaggerated gender wage gap statistics and mocked women who choose to stay at home to raise families.

In a Wednesday piece, GQ writer Drew Magary told Trump supporters, "If you vote for him, you’re not making America great again. You are killing it. You are telling the world that America isn’t worth it. You are telling the world that all of our big talk about freedom and unity and ideals is just a load of shit, and that you would prefer a smoldering dystopia where freedom is just a flimsy cover for evildoing, led by a man who believes that strength is measured only in killing people."

The liberal Hollywood Avengers have assembled to defeat the evil Donald Trump!
On September 21, The Hollywood Reporter described how Avengers director Joss Whedon founded “Save the Day,” a pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC. He donated $1 million to her campaign and is creating a series of online, “star-studded” comedy videos to combat low voter turnout among potential Clinton supporters, such as black men and Millennials. The plan is to produce 15 to 25 videos by the end of the election.

In the weeks leading up to Monday night’s first one-on-one clash between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the liberal media have set the stage for NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt and his fellow presidential debate moderators to be rougher with the GOP nominee. Journalists from the New York Times to CNN have openly declared that Trump is so intolerably “polarizing,” “racist and sexist” that he must be treated to a completely different standard than the Democratic candidate.

Comedy Central is out with a new adult animated comedy called Legends of Chamberlain Heights that airs on Wednesday nights after South Park. The show is about three freshman basketball bench warmers - Grover, Milk, and Jamal - and their antics in their quest to become “legends" at their high school. The result is quite possibly the most disgustingly foul-mouthed, outrageously offensive, obnoxiously over-the-top, and purposefully inappropriate show I've ever seen.

ABC premiered their new comedy, Speechless, on Wednesday night, which tells the tale of an overly-eccentric mother of a child with cerebral palsy. The mom’s (Minnie Driver) obsession with finding the right school for her disabled child takes her to one particular school that once had a Viking as their mascot. I say “had,” because they exchanged the Viking for something a little less offensive.

As Charlotte, North Carolina was being torn apart on Wednesday night, cable networks CNN, the Fox News Channel (FNC), and MSNBC offered wall-to-wall coverage of the carnage and tense scenes that, during the 9:00 p.m. Eastern hour, resulted in the one civilian being shot by another civilian and injuries to roughly a dozen police officers but MSNBC saw no reason in that hour to inform their viewers of the rampant looting at hotels and storefronts by the Black Lives Matter protesters.

New York magazine writer Gabriel Sherman has been the liberal media’s leading investigator/prosecutor of former Fox News boss Roger Ailes and the network’s settlement with Gretchen Carlson on sexual harassment claims. Now Evan Gahr in the New York Observer reports that Sherman didn’t exactly come clean with readers about lengthy negotiations to get hired by MSNBC:

Ken Burns still can't get over his obsession over Donald Trump. Last June, in his Stanford commencement speech, the documentary filmmaker with the outdated Beatle haircut went all drama queen over the candidacy of Donald Trump. Well, he still can't get Trump out of his mind even if he is unable to speak his name.
In an interview with Carl Quintanilla, host of CNBC's BINGE, Burns takes us on a troubled trip deep into the heart of liberal darkness. His obsession is mostly amusing but he still continues to pretend that he is "nonpartisan" which is an easily disprovable lie. The interview begins with the clip of Burns' Stanford campaign speech thinly disguised as a commencement address:

Terrifying news broke during CNN’s The Lead on Wednesday, as details of a chemical weapon attack against US troops at Qayyara Air Base in Iraq became known. “We do have some breaking news coming into CNN at this minute,” announced a concerned Jake Tapper, “US officials are telling CNN that the Pentagon suspects ISIS launched a chemical weapons attack against US and Iraqi troops.” The terrible development seemed to go unnoticed by ABC, CBS, and NBC because none of them reported it during their evening broadcasts.

Appearing as a panel member on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, TheRoot.com political editor and Morgan State University professor Jason Johnson -- a recurring guest on CNN -- suggested that GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump "continually associates himself with terrorist organizations like the Klan" as he responded to Trump's appearance at a black church in Ohio.
Johnson has a history of making incendiary accusations of racism against Republicans, and this past weekend appeared in a soundbite on the NBC Nightly News in which he cracked that Trump's base consists of "white voters, white voters, and white voters." TheRoot.com notably was acquired last year by Univision.

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough clashed with Hillary Clinton Campaign Manager Robby Mook during Wednesday's edition of the Morning Joe program after the constantly smiling guest repeatedly avoided answering questions about the Democratic presidential candidate’s foreign policy.
Also, co-host Willie Geist asked Mook about Clinton’s past support of Barack Obama‘s “red line” against Bashar al-Assad‘s use of chemical weapons in Syria. “She supported the drawing of the red line. … Was it a mistake to draw the red line if the president was not willing to do something about it when it was crossed?”

Many consider Donald Trump an anomaly in the Republican party, but they really shouldn’t, suggested New York’s Chait in a Tuesday piece. Chait argued that the GOP which nominated Trump for president is pretty much the same GOP which has freaked out for several years over the Affordable Care Act. As Chait put it, “Republican hatred of Obamacare exemplifies the madness that left its elite unable to stop Trump.”
