In Monday’s Washington Post, the media’s pathetic attempt to blame everyone but Hillary Clinton for her election loss trudged on. Today’s paper highlighted a study by two professors at the University of Texas at Dallas, that surveyed what voters felt about women in the workplace, and whether or not their answers fit into a “traditionalist” or “progressive” mindset. The survey’s writers concluded that their six question survey found that Clinton was correct: “Negative attitudes toward women affects voters in 2016, and the impact of these attitudes influenced the outcome of the election.”
The 71st Annual Tony Awards was broadcast from Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Sunday night on CBS. The June 11th ceremony was charged with honoring excellence on Broadway, hosted by former Tony winner actor Kevin Spacey.
President Donald Trump has been in office for almost five months. CNN's Kevin Liptak, whose network bio still brags about how he, as "White House producer," "has traveled the world covering President Obama," noted in a Saturday report updated Sunday morning that Trump and Obama "haven't spoken or seen each other" since Inauguration Day. Gosh, I wonder why?
Attacks on President Donald Trump are commonplace -- many depict him as this wildly bizarre, classless person occupying the Oval Office -- but have critics fairly considered what a horror show a Hillary Clinton presidency would have been?
Ever since Donald Trump entered the political sphere, liberals have loved comparing him to the sleazy, power-hungry Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey). Released in its entirety on Netflix on May 30, the fifth season of House of Cards contained some eerie parallels between the Underwood White House and liberal fantasies of the Trump White House. The Hollywood Reporter tells us, “If this season of House of Cards feels prescient, that's because the minds behind the critically acclaimed series did their research.” The show runners “looked into what could happen based on what has already been simmering in America.”
Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller harped on something New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet said Wednesday at the Recode conference in California. In discussing the Times editorial pages -- and the liberal reader anger over signing up Bret Stephens from The Wall Street Journal -- he used the royal "We" in describing the Left, until he caught himself, and "I'm not 'we,' I'm a journalist."
There have certainly been less mature reactions than what was seen at the Associated Press Thursday afternoon to President Trump's decision to withdraw from the nonbinding Paris climate accord. However, given that the AP is supposedly a wire service whose mission is merely to deliver objective news — one long since abandoned, but to which it still gives lip service — the decision of reporters Julie Pace and Jill Colvin to go after Trump's "I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris" statement almost immediately after the announcement to remind readers that the Steel City supported Hillary Clinton in the presidential election was extraordinarily and embarrassingly childish.
The third season of Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt took a turn into the world of politics by incorporating random snarky political one-liners into almost all of the thirteen half-hour episodes. With Hillary Clinton supporter and SNL alum Tina Fey as a co-creator of this internet series, it should be no surprise that the 2016 presidential election worked its way into dialogue.
After Hillary Clinton used a softball inteview during a Silicon Valley tech conference on Wednesday to blame everyone but herself for her failed presidential campaign, Thursday’s network morning shows eagerly promoted her excuses, even pushing unfounded conspiracy theories advanced by the former Democratic nominee.
Nevermind all the lies that took place during the Clinton and Obama administrations, now that Donald Trump is in office Charlie Rose is fearful that “lying is okay” now. On Thursday night’s edition of PBS’s Charlie Rose show, the CBS This Morning anchor invited on liberal Senator Al Franken and asked him to pontificate on Trump, as he pressed: “So you think in our culture, and in our political culture, lying is okay now?”
On Wednesday, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were all over the latest developments in the Russia investigation saga. They mainly focused on how former FBI Director James Comey received permission from Special Counsel Robert Mueller to speak to Congress. Among the developments that didn’t make the cut for ABC's and CBS's evening programming, were a series of subpoenas issued by the House to former high-ranking members of the Obama administration for improper unmasking. Instead, they mentioned those issued to Trump associates.
Chelsea Clinton is making her rounds in the media this week to promote her new children’s feminist book, (that includes a special cameo of her mother!), aptly titled "She Persisted." After one fawning interview on NBC’s Today show Tuesday, Clinton was ready for another cushy interview on Wednesday’s The View.
