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.
Veterans should be some of our most honored citizens, but ongoing scandals at the Department of Veterans Affairs punish those who give us the most. Though the liberal media would prefer us to forget this issue from the Obama administration, CBS’s NCIS: Los Angeles places VA corruption front-and-center in their latest episode, "Battle Scars."
During CBS’s Sunday Morning, the network dedicated their “cover story,” which lasted over nine minutes, to railing against the Trump administration’s proposed cuts to the National Endowment for the Arts. “With the proposed cuts in federal funding for the arts would hurt their program but not shut it down, but the same cannot be said for groups in other parts of the country,” whined host Jane Pauley while using the New York Youth Symphony as a political prop.
As Nicholas Fondacaro at NewsBusters noted on Friday, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow's obsession with the money raised for President Donald Trump's inauguration went into overdrive the previous evening. During the same show, Maddow combined that obsession with another one shared by most of the news media — the absolute necessity to avoid blaming Venezuela's dire economic circumstances on its Bolivarian socialist form of government and its de facto dictator Nicolas Maduro — to come up with the most ridiculous reason imaginable as to why civil order in Venezuela has broken down.
ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. usually manages to toe the line between liberal ideology and hardcore reality. Their latest story arc takes the characters to a Matrix-like alternate world where the writers can make up any reality they want. In this case, it’s a world where we still have to deal with the “nevertheless, she persisted” line like it means something.
On Thursday, "President Donald Trump signed a bill Thursday undoing an Obama-era regulation that prohibited states from withholding money from Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health clinics." On NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday, Andrea Mitchell's sense of cruel irony was utterly absent, as she described the bill potentially affecting the nation's largest abortion provider as "a killer decision."
Posts over the next several days will show that certain left-leaning websites and existing left-leaning news organizations have figured out that they can employ the technique of "fact-checking," perhaps once nobly intended, as a handy device to advance a left-supporting, right-bashing agenda.
The latest episode of ABC’s Designated Survivor made it abundantly clear that the conspiracy element of this show is merely a thin patina of intrigue allowing the writers to wipe away Republican congressional majorities and fantasize about the “progress” they could be making in the wake of a massive crisis. The April 12 episode doubled down on last week’s anti-gun rhetoric, mentioning “background checks” once every 3.8 minutes.
Just when CBS’s Superior Donuts makes me think it can avoid a racial argument, it jumps into something just as bad: insulting all Chicago police as corrupt. Why can’t we just watch a show that doesn’t have either? In the April 10 episode “Painted Love,” Franco (Jermaine Fowler) gets inspired to paint a mural to his recently-passed friend and inspiration "Bam-Bam," who also happened to be a former gang member.
On April 5, Politifact, the website which uses "fact-checking" as a shield to advance a left-supporting, right-bashing "truth squad" agenda, decided that "Revisiting the Obama track record on Syria’s chemical weapons" was necessary. I'll say.
Thursday night’s episode of The Catch was partially preempted by breaking news, but unfortunately, not long enough to cut off more than one brazen display of sexual depravity.
On Friday, Adam Housley at Fox News delivered bombshell news that a "very well-known, very high up, very senior (person) in the intelligence world" not in the FBI had engaged in "the unmasking of the names of American citizens" in the course of surveillance surfacing "members of the Trump administration" that had nothing to do with Russia ... or foreign intelligence of any kind." On Sunday morning's Fox & Friends, Clayton Morris reported that the Big Three broadcast networks, CNN and MSNBC devoted had to that point devoted absolutely no coverage to what Housley reported, despite granting heavy play to a Thursday New York Times story which Housley's sources insist is wrong.
