We would’ve thought we had heard the last of Dear White People, a movie which followed black college students and their bouts with racism that eventually ended in a college riot, however, thanks to Netflix, they will be video streaming an upcoming series based on the movie. One would think Netflix would be praised and applauded for streaming such a racially conscious series, but not so; Ever since Netflix dropped the trailer, they’ve received a lot of backlash because of it.

The new CBS legal drama Doubt premiered on Wednesday night, and while it stars Katherine Heigl, Laverne Cox is getting all the attention for being the first transgender to be cast as a series regular on a network TV show - i.e. liberals are forcing the radical LGBQT agenda on American TV viewers again.

Another week, another bogus attempt by the Hollywood lefties to bash Americans. This time, NBC’s Blindspot makes a military contractor out to be the bad guy, trying to force the U.S. into a war for profit.

Hulu’s original series The Path is halfway through its second season, but fortunately for us, they still managed to squeeze in a little questionable behavior for us to cover. This time, the show took time to briefly discuss the hardly-discussed topic of systemic racism in prison. They’re so considerate.

I've always considered CW’s Arrow the more conservative show of the DC universe (which means almost nothing) since it follows a physically tough man using his hard-earned abilities to defend himself and the city where he lives. That being said, if Supergirl couldn’t even handle the subject of gun control, what makes them think that a show where literally every character uses a weapon would be a better platform?

CNN took the time during Wednesday’s edition of The Lead to take jabs at President Donald Trump for not being able to get much done during his first three and a half weeks besides create controversy. When asked by host Jake Tapper to walk him through the events of Trump’s first month in office, reporter Tom Foreman joked that “it's more like staggering than walking cause it's quite an experience.” He poked fun at the fledgling administration’s trip ups and hammered it with the accomplishments of past administrations.

CBS made their position on protests against President Donald Trump pretty clear during Wednesday’s Evening News. “President Trump has been an inspiration to many, including many of his opponents, motivating them to speak out,” mocked anchor Scott Pelley to start off the segment. Reporter Dean Reynolds touted the widespread efforts of ‘progressives’ to organize and rally against the Republican president. Something they actively shunned during the rise of the Tea Party eight long years ago.

Excuse me, Newsweek, but who was ultimately responsible for establishing the Manzanar internment camp along with the other such camps which interned Japanese residents in the USA along with Japanese-American citizens during World War II? If you read this February 15 article by Newsweek senior writer Alexander Nazaryan you would think President Donald Trump who was born a year after that war ended was somehow responsible rather than the real culprit, President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In fact Nazaryan mentions Trump 26 times in the story while FDR appears only 3 times.

On Wednesday night, MSNBC’s Hardball guests Tim Weiner and Malcom Nance equated the speculated ties between the Trump administration/campaign and Russia to “the most politically charged counterintelligence investigation since the Soviets stole the secret of the atomic bomb” or the Queen of England compromising Abraham Lincoln.

During the past several days, people in the “mainstream media” have taken advantage of every opportunity to criticize President Donald Trump, his staff, or even people in his family. The latest example of this tactic came on Wednesday's edition of Morning Joe on MSNBC, when co-host Mika Brzezinski declared that White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway would never be a guest on the program “as long as I'm on it” because “I don't believe in 'fake news' for information that is not true. Every time I've ever seen her on television, something's askew, off or incorrect.”

Searches at the Associated Press, the New York Times and the Washington Post for stories in English on "monarca," the Spanish term for the monarch butterfly, currently come up empty. (There is a Post story in Spanish originating with the Associated Press, but it's about a drop in the number of those butterflies present in Mexico.) This absence isn't due to a lack of interest in the butterfly. It's because there's a lack of interest in telling the American people about a concerted effort by Mexico, codenamed Monarca, to slow or halt deportations of its citizens here in the U.S. illegally to a crawl by funding efforts to clog the U.S. court system to the point where it "break(s) down."

New York Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor filed a full-page ad for the anti-Trump “resistance” for Wednesday’s edition: “Activists for Liberal Causes Join Forces Against Common foe: Trump.” The page was designed for maximum impact, with four good-sized photos of protesters, plus several long quotes from lefties running under a different eye-catching font under the headline “‘Resist’ Becomes A New Battle Cry.” The Times performed similar puffery for the unhappy left-wing campers of Occupy Wall Street, a movement that faded to nothingness despite the paper's best publicity efforts (the Tea Party, of course, got the old, white, racist treatment).

Batten down the hatches, folks. On Wednesday after the press conference between President Trump and Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu, pure and utter panic set in on CNN as Inside Politics host John King and White House correspondent Jim Acosta bemoaned that “the fix is in” because “it would be nice, if the conservative outlets the President is calling on would ask him tough questions.”

Investigative videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s practices boast more than 33 million views on social media. But the three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) still haven’t mentioned them once.

After the election, many liberal celebrities cried “Resist!” Yet, a few brave ones called “embrace.”
