Liberal critics’ favorite show is coming back with an episode that fulfills every lefty’s sweetest dream. CBS All Access’s anti-Trump The Good Fight returns for season 4 with a premiere that imagines an alt history where Hillary Clinton won the presidency in 2016.



President Trump isn’t worried about the Chinese coronavirus as long as he and his wealthy Republican donors “don’t die,” thinks Hollywood lefty Alec Baldwin. He said as much to radio shock jock Howard Stern while doing his Saturday Night Live impression of Trump.



No matter how many abortions there are in America, Planned Parenthood and their blood-thirsty cohorts are always screaming, “More, more!” On Twitter, Planned Parenthood freaked out that with the proposed Chinese coronavirus stimulus bill, Republicans are “ONCE AGAIN exploiting a public health crisis to target sexual and reproductive health care." 



Amidst all the darkness in the news, one 23-year-old waitress from Idaho brought in some much-needed light with her pro-life story of adoption that aired on American Idol this week.



With the Chinese coronavirus panic going on and all sorts of efforts being made to stop people from dying, the abortion lobby is worried about – what else – making sure they can keep killing preborn babies in a timely manner. The pro-abortion American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists put out a joint statement with other organizations on March 18 that said they “do not support COVID-19 responses that cancel or delay abortion procedures.”



Tuesday, March 10, was declared “National Abortion Provider Appreciation Day” by pro-abortion activists and they were out in force on social media. In some areas, #CelebrateAbortionProviders trended on Twitter, a sad testament to the power of the culture of death in America. Here’s a sample of the tweets from pro-aborts celebrating abortionists.



Hulu's new docuseries Hillary was released on March 6; a four-episode, four-hour slog that went back and forth between the 2016 campaign and Hillary Clinton's life from childhood. Although rewatching her 2016 concession speech and crying supporters was a highlight, this being a show about the Clintons, the series was filled with lowlights.



A recent sympathetic article on abortion in Bloomberg Businessweek offered a textbook lesson in liberal media bias. Written by Cynthia Koons and Rebecca Greenfield, the February 27 article’s headline whined that “Abortion Clinics Are Getting Nickel-and-Dimed Out of Business.” 



What does a Super Bowl-winning tight end do when he retires from the NFL? Well, if you're a pro-life Christian like Benjamin Watson, you get to work on a documentary about abortion. CPAC attendees got a special preview of Watson's film Divided Hearts of America on Friday, about 10 minutes that included the opening and a section about the Democrat Party and abortion.



A new alt-history program about the rise of fascism in America during World War II has been called “startlingly prescient.” That’s according to radical leftist David Simon (The Wire) the creator of next month’s limited HBO series The Plot Against America, based on the 2004 novel by Philip Roth.



Fans of the beloved former CBS show Walker, Texas Ranger will be sorely disappointed to hear it will be getting the CW treatment in its reboot. In addition to Walker getting a new female partner, media reported on Wednesday that he will have a “gay, conservative younger brother.”



The nuclear family is so 20th Century. That’s what our culture is telling us repeatedly. The latest iteration comes from HGTV’s popular program House Hunters, which featured it’s very first “throuple” (a three-person polyamorous couple) in an episode that aired Wednesday night.



Amid all the pro-abortion hatred one finds from Hollywood on Twitter, sitcom star Patricia Heaton is a welcome breath of fresh air.

Along with the red carpet, Best Picture, and the Oscar itself, the annual Academy Awards has become synonymous with left-wing political speeches and grandstanding. Since 2016, MRC Culture's On TV blog has covered the Oscars in all its liberal glory, from the anti-Trump opening monologue jokes to the activist acceptance speeches.



When President Trump talked about one of the earliest premature babies ever to survive and then tied it in with late-term abortion at Tuesday's State of the Union, pro-abortion activists were aghast. There was little Ellie Schneider, born at 21 weeks and 6 days, when other unborn babies are brutally butchered in the womb, and our president had the guts to say it.



Teen Vogue continued its streak of misinforming youth about the politics and other issues of the day on Thursday.
