At the very end of the April 16 Saturday Night Live, the NBC skit show mocked the Christian movie God’s Not Dead 2, which like its predecessor explores how modern American culture denies the existence of God, especially in our classrooms. It did so by mocking God Himself.

NBC mocked the idea that Christians are being denied religious freedom. Cast member Vanessa Bayer played a baker who refuses to bake a wedding cake for two gay men, proclaiming “I want to deny basic goods and services to gay people.” An ACLU lawyer for the gay couple takes her to court to force her to say "God is gay." In her triumphant moment in court, she instead yells out "God... is a boob man!"

HBO should stand for History Bungling Office. Over and over again, they have abused their disclaimer that “This film is a fact-based dramatization.” They re-litigated Al Gore’s 2000  “victory” in Recount. They viciously cartooned Sarah Palin’s vice-presidential candidacy in Game Change. Now they’re smearing Clarence Thomas as a pervert and painting Anita Hill as a saint of sexual harassment in Confirmation.

The makers of this “fact-based” movie claim it’s balanced. Baloney. The advertisements give away the game. Over the face of actress (and executive producer) Kerry Washington playing St. Anita are the words “It only takes one voice to change history.”

If the conventional wisdom had ruled in this election cycle, America’s most prominent journalists would have been painted the traditional portrait. Hillary Clinton and the Democrats warmly reminded the country of her husband’s allegedly centrist presidency. Conversely, whoever the Republicans nominated would be declared either (a) too conservative to win or (b) ruined by trying to placate those crazy Tea Party people who inevitably make the moderates unelectable.

Hillary’s long and frustrating march to put away her socialist competitor Bernie Sanders has disrupted the narrative. She cannot package herself as centrist. The media elite will admit Sanders has dragged her to the left. But that doesn’t mean her increasing leftism could damage the Democrats with independent voters.

Back in the 1980s, Bruce Springsteen and other rock stars formed Artists United Against Apartheid and performed a song proclaiming “I ain’t gonna play Sun City,” referencing a resort in South Africa. The song mocked the Reagan administration’s “constructive engagement” policy in South Africa, but rock stars routinely performed in the totalitarian Soviet Union, believing that was incredibly constructive.

Today, Springsteen and other Artists of Conscience have a burning new cause of injustice. “Transgender women” with male anatomy must be allowed to celebrate their chosen identity in the girls’ bathroom. The Left has gone berserk.

Now that the Republican campaign looks like it will last until a contested convention in Cleveland, Donald Trump and his supporters assert the whole system looks undemocratic.

But if democracy was organized to give everyone a fair and equal shot to impress the voters based on their knowledge and experience, then this system has been rigged for Donald Trump for the last nine months. The media - not just the liberal media, but some "conservative" media, too - have been the gale-force wind beneath Trump's wings.

HBO shocked the world on April 4 by unveiling a 100-minute documentary honoring the legacy and legislative career of Sen. Jesse Helms.

Delayed April Fool’s. No, instead, they did feature Senator Helms – as a villain to kick off a 100-minute documentary deeply honoring the life and art of Robert Mapplethorpe, the infamous anti-Christian, penis-obsessed purveyor of sadomasochistic black-and-white photography. This defines the ideological and anti-religious sensibilities of HBO.

Less than a year ago, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos admitted to Politico that he had made $75,000 in undisclosed contributions to the charitable foundation-slash-campaign operation of his former employers Bill and Hillary Clinton. He personally pledged he wouldn’t moderate a Republican primary debate this year. But ABC News issued a statement of support for Stephanopoulos and insisted it “would take no punitive action against him."

It’s bad enough that ABC never even considered removing this self-evident Clinton loyalist from its “objective” political coverage. They even allow him to conduct softball interviews with Hillary Clinton, and won’t even insist on reminding viewers of his substantial financial support of the woman he’s interviewing.

Actress Susan Sarandon embodies the definitive caricature of the raving socialist so brimming with “compassion” and with an estimated net worth of $50 million. She infuriated liberals by telling MSNBC host Chris Hayes on March 28 that she can only envision Bernie Sanders for president: “I really want to be on the right side of history and this is a shot we're not going to have in my lifetime to have a candidate that's so morally consistent,” while Hillary Clinton is a stalking horse for Wall Street or “fracking or Monsanto.”

She wouldn’t relent and say she’d vote for Hillary instead of Trump: “Some people feel Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately if he gets in then things will really, you know, explode.”

The National Enquirer’s brand in journalism is synonymous with factually unsupported drivel of the lowest kind. It is a sacred truth that no responsible journalist should produce the kind of garbage found in this tabloid. 
 
But somehow it’s perfectly appropriate for the same responsible journalists to report the sleaze, over and over, emphasizing, of course, that the source is that awful National Enquirer.

To Catholics, the week before Easter is “Holy Week,” a time to prepare for the church’s highlight of the year, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. To Hollywood, it is a time to flog the Catholic Church with vicious portrayals of corruption and hypocrisy.

Hollywood insists it's product reflects a market demand. There is no market demand for this. It is Hollywood, and only Hollywood, that wishes to celebrate its bigotry toward Catholics.

The smoke hadn’t cleared from the airport in Brussels and already the press was issuing its typical lament: This will only stoke Europe’s “right wing” and spread “rampant Islamophobia.”

NBC’s Richard Engel complained on the “Today” program that “We're already seeing the rise of the right wing. We're already seeing rise of hate attacks, where people will use the kind of terrorist attacks, these kind of incidents, to vilify all of the Muslim community. Which, of course, only makes the situation worse. Because then people feel isolated, ostracized, ghettoized, and they retreat into their own communities.”

No one doubts that the “fake news” shows on Comedy Central are propaganda organs for liberalism. NPR and MSNBC hosts have swooned over the soothing satirical nightcaps for the snarky liberal. Apparently, that genre isn’t enough. Now the channel’s situation comedies are pushing the Democrats.

In the March 16 episode of the millennial-female sitcom “Broad City,” the buffoonish main character (played by Ilana Glazer) volunteers for the Hillary for President campaign – so enthusiastically she put “Rodham” in her name, as in “Ilana Rodham Wexler.”

In the liberal lexicon, “backlash” is a word that only describes conservatives getting what’s coming to them. But as MSNBC reduces its number of shows and time slots for race-obsessed black hosts, this was bound to happen. The hashtag as the Left began to devour itself was “#MSNBCSoWhite.”

When MSNBC hired leftist hosts who were fixated on race, it was only natural that MSNBC would be trashed as "going white” when the reality of MSNBC’s terrible ratings for hosting seminars of academics about how badly America stinks cost Comcast some serious cash.

On the libertine Left, one of the most revered “social justice warriors” is the abortionist. “Abortion providers” are revered as living statues of liberty, granting the freedom from being “punished with a baby,” to quote our current president. Entire documentaries celebrate them.

The latest is Trapped, named after the pro-abortion lingo for any law that regulates the abortion industry, or as they spin it, “targeted regulation of abortion providers.” In the Los Angeles Times, Katie Walsh provided the propagandistic ooze:  “These providers embody a remarkable mix of tenacity and tenderness as they comfort patients and attempt to discern and comply with labyrinthine regulations.”

It's in part a lack of resources overseas and part simple disinterest at home, but the American news media act seemingly are out of the business of covering international news, and one of the most neglected international stories is the attempt by ISIS to exterminate and persecute Christians wherever they are.

Instead, our media obsess over the faintest hint of domestic “Islamophobia.” A few weeks ago, The New York Times filed a a national story from Arizona with this incident: “Rania Kanawati, a Syrian immigrant, was walking to her car after Friday Prayer last month at the Islamic Center of Tucson when a beer can landed right behind her, then another one fell by her side.” The headline was “University of Arizona Students Hurl Insults, and Litter, at Mosque in Tucson.” No one was hurt.

When Disney and ABC decided to make a sitcom based on the teenage years of hatemongering homosexual “Savage Love” advice columnist Dan Savage, anyone could guess this was going to be a religion-bashing extravaganza.

Now the show is here. It’s called The Real O’Neals, which is an odd title, since they couldn’t have manufactured a more wooden set of caricatured Catholics, who are both wildly dysfunctional and shallower than a thimble.

For many years now, the liberal media have lamented that our democracy is badly compromised by a rapacious band of  billionaires manipulating government policy and elections and frustrating the will of the people. Just four years ago, the networks became a megaphone for the “Occupy Wall Street” argument that the “99 percent” were tired of being dominated by the “One Percent.”

So when Donald Trump, America’s best-known brand name for rapacious billionaire, decided to run for president, one might have expected these Occupier sympathizers would clearly wonder if his entire campaign was a grand conspiracy by the so-called “ruling class.” But these supposed opponents of “Big Money” dominating our democracy have spent month after month giving the lion’s share of their political coverage to the billionaire reality-TV host.

Walter Annenberg was a billionaire publisher and philanthropist, a pal to Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan, whose biggest enrichment came from selling TV Guide to one Rupert Murdoch. But today, after his death, a school bearing his name is ripping Hollywood to shreds from the hard left.

The Associated Press breathlessly reported that in “one of the most exhaustive and damning reports on diversity in Hollywood,” The Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California put out a new report slashing at the “whitewashing” of our movies and TV shows. It’s howling against an “epidemic of invisibility” for minorities (both racial and sexual) and declaring an “inclusion crisis.”

President Obama may be a lame duck, but the press never tires of celebrating him as the first black president. They ran President Bush’s poll ratings into the ground as his term ended, but here in Black History Month, they are promoting Obama like it’s still 2009.

On NBC Nightly News, anchor Kate Snow played video posted on Facebook of a four-year-old black girl crying and distraught that Obama’s time in office will soon be up.

 The Left is still in mourning over the retirement of Jon Stewart from The Daily Show. One poor fellow at The Atlantic just wrote a piece that suggests he needs a grief counselor

"Slowly, though, it began to sink in: the dimension of our loss. Jon Stewart was gone—our sanity, our balance," James Parker wrote. "In nuking the news-givers, petarding the pundit class, he became one of them—became, in fact, the pundit/news-giver for a generation of viewers."
