Showtime’s Homeland is really working on trying to get back on the good side of liberals this season, even after empathizing with terrorist sympathizers and demeaning Israeli settlers. But if they want a medal for that, they’ll have to wait a lot longer than six seasons. Until then, we have to deal with their next appeasement to the liberal crowds: an Alex Jones parody.
The media remain steadfast in their opposition to now-President-elect Donald Trump. In their attempts to deny him first the office and now legitimacy therein, they have come up with all sorts of shorthand descriptives that are either vague or outright disingenuous.
One of the most annoying of these - is “Donald Trump is anti-(free) trade.”
The last-ditch Electoral College revolt failed, so now Hollywood Lefties begin turning to other means to undermine the President-elect. Beau Willimon, the man behind the popular Netflix series ‘House of Cards,’ has been working on a new project that has nothing to do with TV.
On Friday, a Virginia jury determined that Rolling Stone magazine defamed former University of Virginia associate dean of students Nicole Eramo when it published, and then refused to fully retract, its 9,000-word November 2014 "A Rape on Campus" story — and that the magazine did so with malice.
How could this fail to sell beer? Take two unattractive, unfunny, big-mouth celebrity liberals, put them in an unfunny, unimaginative political campaign format, have them talk down to the audience with some tired lefty talking points, and watch sales soar!
On Sunday, Hillary Campaign Manager Robby Mook dodged a question from Jake Tapper on CNN's State of the Union about indications that black turnout for the former Secretary of State in North Carolina during early voting has not been strong. Meanwhile, a black Trump supporter, who the press seems to believe can easily be turned into an object of ridicule, continues to run circles around them in interviews.
"Blow-by-blow coverage that gives disproportionate attention to one or two candidates. Some getting short shrift or gratuitously negative coverage. A press obsession with tactics and strategy that outpaces policy differences and leadership characteristics.”
“Sound familiar?” asked James Warren, chief media writer for the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida, when describing a Harvard University study regarding the 2016 presidential primary campaigns.
On Friday night, BET and MTV convened an hour-long, commercial-free townhall on police-involved shootings of African-Americans with only distant mentions of what transpired the night before in Dallas but focused heavily on denigrating law enforcement as hunters and “a gang” meant to terrorize blacks from America’s founding, the need for white people to recognize privilege, and lobby for the defunding of police nationwide.
The American media cabal is…ridiculous. They are the Borg of politics - many entities, but of but one Leftist mind. Led around by their noses by whatever hack government-growing politician is before them at that moment.
Just as they calmly repeated the "ventriloquized" Obama line on the Iran deal, so they're doing with the latest ruling on "Net neutrality."
Politics in DC these days are so absurd that there can only be one explanation: brain-eating alien bugs. CBS’ new show BrainDead, premiering June 13th, is a political satire that blames unpopular Congressional actions on ant-like aliens infecting the minds of politicians. One of the show's stars bashed Ted Cruz as a way of defending its realism.
In six seasons, Downton Abbey — the English drama that takes place from 1912 to 1925 — has captured millions of American viewers and won an Emmy, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA.
It’s a show about the seismic shifts of society (war, economic changes, politics) that led to declining aristocratic lifestyles in Great Britain. If focuses on the story of one aristocratic family, the Crawleys, as well as the servants working in their estate at Downton Abbey. Money was a common focus of the show, since an enormous estate takes a lot of money to run and was in many ways a local economic engine.
Objective journalism is so old-fashioned. Activism is the new objectivity, at least where the liberal media are concerned.
Rather than reporting as neutral outsiders on matters of race, CNN hosts and guest actually put their hands up in the “Hands up, don’t shoot” pose that never happened while reporting on protests. They seize on mass shootings to repeat calls for stricter gun control.
The sad fact is that many journalists and news publications don’t report on climate change, health care, wages and other economic issues; they promote a liberal agenda with their so-called news. Here are the top 10 ways the media acted as anti-business or anti-capitalism activists in the past year.
