Of this past Sunday's political talk shows, NBC's Meet the Press went the furthest in informing viewers of Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez's recent statement against Democrats who hold pro-life views as host Chuck Todd brought up the issue with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and even raised the matter again during the show's regular panel segment. CNN's State of the Union also touched on the issue as CBS's Face the Nation only brought it up vaguely, while ABC's This Week and Fox News Sunday ignored it completely.
The New York Mets made a smart decision when they decided to give Tim Tebow a chance to play for their Class A farm team in Columbia, S.C. The Fireflies are selling more tickets and drawing more media attention than ever before, and Tebow is a marketing director’s dream come true.
Wednesday night’s episode of Shots Fired, “Hour 5: Before the Storm,” officially established the show as over-the-top, race-baiting nonsense. While DOJ Special Prosecutor Preston Terry (Stephen James) and Investigator Ashe Akino (Sanaa Lathan) delve deeper into their investigation of the deaths of black, unarmed teen Joey Campbell and white, unarmed teen Jesse Carr, their discovery about the white, racist police department out to get black people takes an inexplicable turn. Akino pieces together that rich, white people are hunting poor, black people for sport. Literally.
Wednesday night’s episode of Fox’s race drama, Shots Fired, “Hour 4: Truth,” revealed some key pieces of evidence behind the death of unarmed black teen Joey Campbell: a racist white sheriff, a racist white lieutenant, and a racist, mostly white police department.
The writers of Shots Fired have created a world where racism is lurking under every rock. The third episode of Fox’s race-obsessed drama, “Hour Three: Somebody’s Son,” which aired April 5, was completely transparent in its attempts to persuade us that everything is about race. DOJ Special Prosecutor Preston Terry (Stephan James) sets the tone for the episode when, while discussing Jesse Carr, the white, unarmed teenager shot by police, Terry remarks, “Let's just say Jesse's your typical kid today. Right, doesn't see color, or at least, that's what he thinks.” Because, of course, white people are all racist even if they don’t think they are.
In a move uncommon for FOX, Sunday night’s episode of The Simpsons, “Caper Chase,” ridiculed the “highly-entitled wusses” that attend America’s universities. When Mr. Burns tries to endow a Department of Nuclear Plant Management at his alma mater, Yale University, he comes face to face with the horror that is today’s college campus: easily offended, politically correct students overdosed with a hatred for micro-aggressions and cultural appropriation with a need for safe spaces.
The second episode of Fox's Shots Fired, “Hour Two: Betrayal of Trust,” which aired on March 29, continued to perpetrate the false narrative that police harass and deny justice to black people. After a church service for the deceased white teenager, Jesse Carr, African American Pastor Janae bemoans his death to the press before adding that the death of an unarmed, black teenager, Joey Campbell, has gone uninvestigated.
The pilot episode of FOX’s new, racially charged show, Shots Fired, fans the flames of anti-police sentiment with its depiction of the Black Lives Matter world where black people are disproportionately mistreated by police and the police force is run by corrupt white men.
Tuesday’s White House press briefing featured a question from WTTG Fox 5’s Ronica Cleary that went against the liberal media’s narratives of the day, asking press secretary Sean Spicer about the alleged brutal rape of a high school student outside Washington D.C. by an illegal immigrant.
In Monday night’s episode of Fox’s APB, titled “Risky Business,” another smack is taken at American fatherhood. In this case, it is a father struggling to accept his gay teenage son’s behavior. The dad is blamed for the son’s suicide attempt.
It’s no secret that the Millennial "snowflake" generation is known for always needing support and praise, even if it's not deserved. This mentality of celebrating mediocrity is hilariously spoofed by FOX’s The Simpsons.
Sunday’s episode of Making History, “The Boyfriend Experience,” stuck with the theme of defiling the Founding Fathers, with Samuel Adams and John Hancock proclaiming themselves as “two of the world’s most accomplished lovers.” When Dan (Adam Pally) travels back in time seeking advice after his girlfriend, Paul Revere’s daughter, runs off, he finds Adams and Hancock leaving a church service. Hancock tells him that Dan has “come to the right place” before Adams chips in, “Where better to receive erotic counsel” than outside of a Church? Hollywood is probably really proud of that attack on both religion and the Founding Fathers in the same joke.
