Lateral movement in one direction or the other routinely comes into play in sports. That’s not the case in sports media, which almost always go to the left. “Today, sportswriting is basically a liberal profession,” declared Bryan Curtis in a Thursday piece for The Ringer. Curtis noted that “Donald Trump’s election was merely an accelerant for a change that was already sweeping across sportswriting” and added, “Forget the viability of being a Trump-friendly sportswriter today. Could someone even be a Paul Ryan–friendly sportswriter…? ”
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.
Katrina Vanden Heuvel, publisher of The Nation, went off on John McCain in an ill-advised, unhinged Wednesday morning tweet, declaring the decorated Navy veteran and former Vietnam prisoner of war an "armchair warrior." As best can be determined, vandenHeuvel is upset that the Arizona senator and 2008 Republican presidential candidate has previously stated that if Russia did indeed meddle in the 2016 presidential campaign, he would consider it an act of war.
We are now two episodes into the Jack Bauer-less re-make of Fox’s 24, now titled 24: Legacy, and a nasty little trend has begun of showing our military heroes as men unable to function back in normal society.
When the lead actor, Walton Goggins, told Yahoo TV his character Rip Taggart “is a war criminal,” the editorial direction of the History Channel’s new fictionalized drama, SIX, should have been clear. History’s new series artistically blurs the lines between American soldiers and the terrorists they fight, conveniently sweeping aside ideologies with a wand of relativism that turns cold-blooded murderers into righteous crusaders and blames Americans for inspiring foreign terrorism.
Some Democratic Party politicians who are searching for any and every possible reason to have a problem with President-Elect Donald Trump's cabinet appointments have latched on to the supposedly troubling fact that it thus far contains three retired generals out of 15 ultimate appointments. Naturally, their allies in the establishment press are amplifying these petty concerns.
The Associated Press's Lolita C. Baldor was a relatively early adopter, claiming a week ago, with alternating bouts of hyperventilation and hostility, that "Congress and others" are struggling with "a broader worry about an increased militarization of American policy" because of Trump's "move to pack his administration with military brass." Baldor has been an AP reporter for 11 years, covering matters relating to the Pentagon, counterterrorism and national security, so there's no excuse for her not recalling recent history which refutes her concern.
On Thursday, CNN's New Day began the show by immediately hitting the incoming Donald Trump transition from the left, seeing "more hardliners" and a "climate change denier" being appointed to the administration, and fretting over its "militarization" because of the selection of "another general." The news network also forwarded fearmongering from an unnamed former Barack Obama aide who charged that Trump's selection for EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, would be "an existential threat to the planet."
After last week’s episode on the plight of the illegal immigrant, Tuesday night’s episode of NCIS on CBS gives us the plight of the poor, innocent Guantanamo Bay detainee.
NBC’s Blindspot aired its mid-season fall finale “Why Let Cooler Pasture Deform” and finally revealed the motivations behind the American terrorist group Sandstorm: drone attacks in the war in Afghanistan.
In Wednesday night’s episode of the ABC drama Designated Survivor, “The Enemy,” President Ronald Reagan is invoked by a bigoted governor who is rounding up Muslims in the wake of an attack on the State of the Union that killed the president and his cabinet, Supreme Court justices, and all but two members of Congress.
On Tuesday The View premiered its 20th season, continuing its tradition of outrageous liberal views. The show began with “Hot Topics,” discussing NFL player Colin Kaepernick’s protest of the National Anthem that made waves in the media this past week. Of course the mostly liberal panel stood up for the multi-millionaire’s un-American display. Co-host Joy Behar had the strangest defense for Kaepernick, saying that it made him “more American” to disrespect the flag, even suggesting that protesters who burned the flag were more patriotic than the rest of us.
Writing in the Sunday Review section of The New York Times, U.S. military veteran Roy Scranton admitted that he’s come realize that his time in Iraq with his fellow servicemen and women had morphed him into “the faceless storm trooper” while “the scrappy rebels were the Iraqis.”
