In the stunned aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, America healed in part by tuning in to Saturday Night Live, just a few miles from the wreckage of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. We all felt like New Yorkers and like Pentagon employees after radical Islamic terrorists killed more than 3,000 Americans by hijacking four airplanes. 

Now, many years later, the American Civil Liberties Union is demonstrating their bizarre definition of “civil liberties” by complaining that the 9/11 terrorists are not having their civil rights respected. “Will the 9/11 Defendants Ever Get a Fair Trial?” Most Americans wonder why anyone responsible for 9/11 is still breathing. But guess who supports that radical take? Stars of Saturday Night Live.

The defunding of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting is long past overdue. No president, including Ronald Reagan, seriously pushed an immediate winding down of this corrupt and outdated waste of taxpayer funds. Who would have ever imagined that Donald Trump would be the first to do this? 

His first budget takes that step, not just to save of ton of taxpayer money ($450 million is a lot of money), but to establish a principle about our leftist media. It’s simply not appropriate for the federal government to fund Democratic propaganda badly disguised as “news.”

Just as the liberal “news” media have doubled down on fierce liberal activism since the Trump inauguration,  so too is Hollywood pushing that leftist agenda. Variety celebrates the crusade -- that is what this is -- in an article headlined “TV Gets Woke: How Scripted Series Are Confronting Social Issues Like Never Before.”

It is not that Hollywood should be political, it is that the industry must be political. Even the sitcoms need to be political.

The latest poll by USA Today and Suffolk University carried some eye-opening numbers about public disapproval of the media’s aggressive attempts to run the country. They found President Trump has a 45 percent approval rating, while 47 percent disapprove.

That’s not surprising. The media talk about his unpopularity all the time. But here’s what they don’t talk about: their own numbers. Only 37 percent of Americans approve of their job performance. A whopping 50 percent disapprove.

They say network television is a profit-oriented business, but that’s obviously not the case when it clashes with Hollywood’s sexual politics. Last week, ABC tried to lecture America with a four-part miniseries on the radical gay Left called When We Rise, and it tanked in the ratings – despite heavy promotion throughout the Academy Awards broadcast the night before the premiere.

While ABC’s star-studded propaganda finale drew 2 million viewers on Friday, March 3, CBS drew 6.6 million for Hawaii Five-0 and 6.8 million for Blue Bloods. ABC’s Shark Tank lead-in drew 6 million viewers.

Wwhy are we all supposed to genuflect to The Washington Post and The New York Times when they publish breathless stories taking on the White House relying on their favored anonymous sources, those “senior U.S. officials”? After all, the Times put a columnist on their front page declaring that the press needed to be “oppositional” and defeat Trump since he was a “demagogue playing to the nation’s worst racist and nationalistic tendencies.”

The Post imagines itself as forever taking down the latest Nixons. One anti-Trump column was headlined “In the angry face of Trumpism, media must speak truth to glower.”

One after another, the pundits hailed this first joint address to Congress as Donald Trump’s finest speech, though the usual naysayers were quick to add snarkily that it was his only good speech, yuk-yuk.  Fox News Channel’s Brit Hume, a serious analyst with, by his count, some 40 of these speeches under his belt, called Tuesday night’s State of the Union address one of the most riveting and unforgettable speeches he’s ever heard. Hume said the general consensus was Trump “hit it out of the park.”

While the media do everything but spontaneously combust at the sight of President Trump, they ignore the other party in turmoil. Over eight years, Obama plunged the Democrats deep into a crater, but his media buddies paid no attention, because nothing Democrats do or don’t do bother them.  

For weeks now, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez and Rep. Keith Ellison have been campaigning to lead the Democratic National Committee, and for weeks, the networks have ignored it. They would rather spend hours analyzing whether Trump is going to keep disrespecting them. (News flash: he will.)

Actress Meryl Streep isn’t just denouncing the dire state of America at Hollywood awards shows. She’s now taking this awards speech to far-left events, accepting an “Ally Award” from the LGBT political-correctness police at the so-called Human Rights Campaign. Since so many Americans will never get to stand at an awards show podium and speak their mind about what’s wrong with the world, we thought we’d present an awards-show speech responding to Meryl Streep and what she represents:

Every time you hear the network anchors and reporters act outraged that President Trump is calling on “friendly” reporters, and that there’s something desperately wrong in trying to avoid negative publicity and hostile questions, think of Planned Parenthood. As with virtually anyone on the Left, journalists treat Planned Parenthood as the most sacred of cows. In the last few weeks, from the “Women’s March” through the March for Life and other protests of Planned Parenthood, none of the networks will investigate or even cover the activities of these merchants of death.

The New York Times was correct in 2011 when it proclaimed Saturday Night Live had no equal “when it comes to stamping a politician in the public consciousness.” Republican politicians like Sarah Palin were described as incapable of escaping the SNL treatment, and voters actually thought Palin uttered Tina Fey’s satirical line “I can see Russia from my house.” 

And yet, as the Times noted after three years in office, the NBC show couldn’t seem to locate a comedic angle on Barack Obama. He came into the White House as his impersonator Fred Armisen lamely spoke over a cool-jazz beat “I keep it cool -- I take my kids to school, I don’t lose my temper, it’s my only rule.”

The Trump administration is less than a month old, and Gen. Mike Flynn, the brand-new National Security Adviser, has resigned. This matches the picture the anti-Trump media want to paint right now. Chaos. Disarray. Amateur hour. 

They also expect the president to help them paint it. This is why they’re going nuclear. He chose to ignore them instead.

The group called SNAP – the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests – disparaged Pope Francis meeting with victims on his American trip as an empty public-relations gesture, a dodge. On CNN, SNAP spokesman Manny Vega demanded that if the pope “wants to put an end to this, he has to be completely transparent, allow the names to go unredacted, allow the files -- allow researchers to get into the Vatican files and take a look at everything that's happened. There has to be complete disclosure.”

But CNN and the other television networks haven’t touched the amazing story of the shoe going on the other foot in the last few weeks. Suddenly, SNAP is falling apart after a lawsuit alleging they were funded largely by kickbacks for contingency-fee attorneys extracting billions of dollars in settlements.

Time magazine has singled out White House strategist Steve Bannon for their Darth Vader cover treatment, with a picture of Bannon looking like a Marvel Comics villain and the title “The Great Manipulator.” Bannon had dared identify the liberal media as the “Opposition Party.” and Time took offense – and in so doing demonstrably proved him right.

The Boy Scouts of America used to be derided as a “traditional values” organization, whose oath spoke of a “duty to God” and whose law insisted scouts be “reverent.’ Now the BSA worships something else: corporate donations. It should have been expected after they folded on homosexual scouts, and then on homosexual scoutmasters. 

Within a month of being pressured by the case of 8-year-old “Joe” (born Jodi) Maldonado, the BSA folded on God and how “He made them male and female.” Instead, in today’s culture, the secular Left lets man overrule God on who's a boy.

It shouldn’t be considered remarkable that all three broadcast networks offered a news story on the tens of thousands who came for the 2017 March for Life. But it is. Between the morning and evening shows together, they gave it almost 22 minutes of airtime. To illustrate how shocking that number is, consider that last year ABC gave the march 35 seconds of coverage. NBC ignored it altogether. Ditto CBS.  

There are two obvious reasons for this change. First, unlike the Reagan administration or the two Bush administrations, the Trump administration made modern history by sending speakers – two top-shelf speakers in Vice President Pence and top aide Kellyanne Conway.The second was the media’s massive coverage of the “Women’s March on Washington.”

In HBO's The Young Pope, the implausible American pontiff Lenny Belardo (Pope Pius XIII) proposes to Cardinal Voiello – a “reformist” prelate -- that all the gay priests be drummed out of the priesthood. The script reads like a mudslinging advertisement against the Vatican. 

The cardinal protests: “It would be a war that would leave the ground littered with corpses, Holy Father. Do you want to know how many corpses would litter the ground?” The pontiff replies “Two-thirds of the clergy.” Since even recent gay-activist surveys plot the LGBT segment of the population at 3.5 percent, that number is ludicrous.

Six years ago, a deeply disturbing story emerged from a poor neighorhood in Philadelphia. In a horrific 261-page report, prosecutors accused abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell of delivering seven babies alive and then killing them by snipping their spines with scissors. He also allowed a woman who had survived 20 years as a refugee in Nepal to be incompetently overmedicated. She died at his clinic.

Documentary filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney have written a new book titled Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer. Journalists will sneer, since they somehow suggest abortion is a “choice,” not murder. This monster chose to kill. He is the face of the abortionist.

On January 13, a judge in Houston, Texas sentenced Alexandria Vera to ten years in prison. Her crime? The 24-year-old teacher at Stovall Middle School struck up a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old student – almost daily, she said, for nine months –  but with the parents’ approval. She could be eligible for parole in five years. She even became pregnant by the boy. When child-protection workers closed in, she got an abortion. Unsurprisingly, the boy is now in foster care.

One would assume this story of a sexual predator would be plastered all over the national news. Isn’t this the kind of crusading story full of human interest and melodrama? Apparently not. ABC, CBS, and NBC couldn’t be bothered.

Michelle Obama made her last public speech as First Lady.  The networks lined up with a 21-handkerchief salute. Nothing will ever be the same.

NBC's Andrea Mitchell proclaimed the speech was “one of hope and empowerment for the young people she has championed for eight years....her unique voice rejecting the racial overtones of 2016." She was a "once-reluctant political wife, fighting an early caricature as an angry black woman… Now, a political orator in a class of her own.”
