Media bias…is not a new thing.
One of Rage Against the Machine’s big hits was “Bulls on Parade.” Were anyone to pen a tune about the media -- “Lemmings on Parade” as a title would eminently work.
On last week’s episode of FX’s The Americans, mom “Elizabeth,” a KGB operative in the U.S. in the mid ‘80s, catches teen daughter “Paige” reading Karl Marx’s Capital: Critique of Political Economy. “Elizabeth” espouses how Marx wrote about “the capitalist class structure being a kind of slavery, how revolution is necessary to create and achieve a worker state so that no one is exploited.” To which, “Paige” asks of the Soviet Union: “Is everybody equal?” Mom responds: “We have our problems.”
Lynne Stewart, whose long legal and illegal career included representing domestic terrorists in the 1980s and relaying a convicted Islamic terrorist's commands to his underlings last decade, died on Tuesday. The Associated Press's Larry Neumeister went out of his way to conceal and sanitize important aspects of Stewart's life and beliefs in his Wednesday afternoon obituary.
The penultimate fifth season of The Americans debuts at 10 PM EST/PST tonight (Tuesday) on FX. As I’ve written before, while the FX series humanizes undercover KGB operatives working in the U.S. on behalf of the Soviet Union, the show also illustrates the ruthlessness of Soviet communism and how the American Left in the 1980s helped advance Soviet interests.
On Morning Joe Tuesday, co-hosts Mika Brezinski and Joe Scarborough attacked White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon as a "Leninist," based on remarks Bannon made to political scholar Ron Radosh, who wrote about the 2013 interaction in an article for The Daily Beast. In an email to Radosh, Bannon denied the remarks.
Earlier this week, Baltimore Orioles executive vice president and chief operating officer John Angelos said that he wouldn't want President Donald Trump to throw out the first pitch at his team's Camden Yards home opener until Trump "retract(s) all these outrageous things that have been said and simply apologize(s)." Most coverage of this story has failed to report that Angelos's father Peter is a longtime, heavy-contributing Democratic Party operative, while no one has questioned John's disingenuous claim of non-partisanship.
On Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, during a discussion of recent leaks from the intelligence community that have been damaging to the Donald Trump administration, liberal host Maher not only suggested that American intelligence agencies are trying to protect the U.S. from a "coup" by President Trump, but he even theorized that such government agencies were behind President John F. Kennedy's assassination because he was having sex with communist spies.
Netflix’s newly released comedy series One Day at a Time bears little resemblance to the original show that aired from 1975 to 1984. Leftist Executive Producer Norman Lear created both shows but the only similarity is the show name – and the wedging in of some liberal issues.
Comrades! We must get to Havana before the counter-revolutionary Yanqui influence corrupts the Workers’ Paradise! So says far-left moonbat mag The Nation (though in not so many words) in an email inviting readers to join it in Havana this spring.
The ad that takes the celebrity cake appeared In the January 11 edition of The Washington Post. Page A-5 carried a full-page advertisement. The top half had large capital letters, saying "No! In the name of humanity, we refuse to accept a fascist America!"
"The presidency of Donald Trump is illegitimate," reads the ad copy in bold letters. "By any definition, Donald Trump is a fascist. He has put together a regime who will carry out this program and worse." It even dispenses with the actual voters. "No election, whether fair or fraudulent, should legitimize this."
Al llegar al fin del 2016 y comienzo del 2017 hay una práctica en Univisión y Telemundo que sigue igual: la habitual descripción deshonesta y descuidada de la política de inmigración del presidente electo Donald Trump - que procura mayor cumplimiento de las leyes inmigratorias del país - con la etiqueta "anti-inmigrante".
As we reach the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017, one thing remains a constant at Univision and Telemundo: the careless and calumnious characterization of Donald Trump's pro-law enforcement immigration policy as "anti-immigrant." During recent coverage of International Migrants Day marches in New York City and Los Angeles, Telemundo's news anchors essentially adopted the marchers' anti-Trump take as their own.
