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.

In the long run, Republicans’ health-care-reform efforts are going to backfire, suggested Vox editor-in-chief Klein last Thursday. He argued that if Congress junks the Affordable Care Act, “Medicare for all” will become a rallying cry for Democrats, and once Dems return to power, “they’ll pass what many of them wanted to pass” instead of the ACA: “A heavily subsidized buy-in program for Medicare or Medicaid, funded by a tax increase on the rich.

Whenever the mainstream media awards a participation trophy to the loser of an election, it is sure bet they are awarding it to a Democrat. Such was the case with the June 17 Politico which awarded a participation trophy to Jason Kander who lost the 2016 U.S. Senate race from Missouri. No matter. As far as Politico is concerned he was really a winner as you can see from their title, How Jason Kander Won by Losing.

Television’s favorite news couple, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, continued to push the mainstream media narrative that Trump is responsible for the nation’s toxic political climate on Monday's Morning Joe. Reading from a New York Times piece by Frank Bruni, Brzezinski quoted, “Lately Trump and his children have been playing the victims of all of this, but save your tears. He has been an enormous part of the problem.” She was all too happy to agree with the sentiment, stating, “I think the difference now is that the President is a part of it....I think it’s fueling the fire.”
What could Democratic Senator Al Franken and actress Olivia Wilde talk about at lunch? Trump and lies, of course. In an interview with Philip Galanes, for the New York Times, the unlikely pair compared notes on lying, Trump, and how the new administration is, according to Wilde, “straight out of 1984.”
You may believe Hollywood touts a strong pro-choice bias. And according to a recent poll, most Americans would agree with you.
Rewind to January 2017 – a politically fraught month, with the Women’s March and March for Life scheduled back-to-back, not to mention President Trump’s Inauguration. Twenty million viewers were watching Meryl Streep vent about politics and call Hollywood and the press “the most vilified segments in American society right now.” She also lauded Hollywood’s impressive cultural diversity.
After Wednesday’s attempted murder of Republican congressmen, their staffs, and a protective detail by a far-left activist, NBC’s Tom Brokaw went in the opposite direction, lecturing views on Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly about how America faces the “common threats” of conspiracy theorists like 9/11 truther Alex Jones.
Judicial Watch recently filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice after uncovering evidence it forced companies to give money to left-wing nonprofits during the Obama administration — nonprofits which also received millions from billionaire George Soros and other liberal foundations.
On the June 11 NBC Nightly News, correspondent Lucy Kafanov voiced nostalgia for the days of communism as she reported on poverty in rural Russia. "It wasn't always like this," Kafanov argued. "In the Soviet era, most villagers worked on huge collective farms. Life wasn't easy, but the government provided for the people."
