As previously documented, The Walt Disney Company – although continuing to have box-office hits – continues to be hurt by the collapse of its leftist Disney-ABC Television Group.  If none of their outfits continued to allow the persistent liberalism, then the whole division will be doomed, let alone cause even more problems for the entertainment conglomerate. 


As a member of The Daily Signal team, I took offense to The Washington Post’s recent questioning of our “legitimacy” as a news organization. The Washington Post began its story stating that, “In an age of partisan media, the lines between ‘partisan’ and ‘media’ can sometimes blur.” I wonder if the reporter has taken a look at just how partisan some of our country’s media behemoths actually are. Here is a summary of the ownership, lobbying, and political contributions of several of America’s largest media companies.


As previously stated, Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger has been wanting to help Donald Trump as much as possible, despite its ABC arm attacking Trump and his supporters. ABC chief Ben Sherwood is doing all he can to destroy Trump and his administration at all costs. That would be a major internal conflict at one of the largest media and entertainment conglomerates in the country. 


In an op-ed published in Friday’s print edition of USA Today, The Atlantic contributor and Religion News Service (RNS) columnist Jonathan Merritt lashed out at conservative Christians for opposing the so-called gay “moment” in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast remake, charging they’re coming across as “antiquated bigots” keeping people from “coexist[ing].”

 


In 1980, Ronald Reagan—a former actor—won the presidency. Just over 35 years later, Celebrity Apprentice star Donald Trump achieved the same feat. Now, a variety of Hollywood figures—most recently Oprah Winfrey and Disney CEO Bob Iger—think they might have a chance too. Check out the following slideshow to see who’s in the running for 2020.

Four things to watch for.


La vida imita a la parodia: Univisión anuncia adqusición parcial del sitio satírico The Onion


Someitmes art imitates life, and sometimes real life imitates The Onion. In the case of Univision, art and life and self-parody have now come full circle. 

Univision has purchased a minority stake in Onion Inc. to "court younger consumers."


According to Fusion writer Charles Pulliam-Moore, there might be an undercurrent of gay love in the new Star Wars movie.


It’s all for the art, man

José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros, the artist behind the exhibition called ‘Profanity Pop’ has taken his “art” to an irreligious level, depicting Mickey Mouse as Christ, Daisy duck as the Virgin Mary holding pregnancy test, and a priest giving communion to Jessica Rabbit. Predictably, Ontiveros is a hit with liberals.
