Apple TV+'s flagship series, The Morning Show, was inspired by a book by CNN's Brian Stelter and it shows. Clearly meant to be prestige television in the mold of HBO, the series is more preachy, self-indulgent Newsroom than juicy, story-driven Big Little Lies. The first three episodes of a 10 episode season were released with the premiere of Apple TV+ on November 1.

Richard Stengel, a former editor of Time and Obama State Department undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs, used free speech and the press... to attack free speech and the press in a truly pathetic op-ed published in the Washington Post Tuesday.



Think the left went crazy at Kanye West’s Trump support last year? Just wait until they get wind of his newest abortion comments in conjunction with his Christian hip hop album Jesus Is King, which was released on Friday. In a clip highlighted by pro-life groups from an October 25 interview with Big Boy TV, West talked about the effect Democrat policies have had on African Americans, including abortion:



Talk about putting the “men” in menstruation! On Tuesday it was announced that feminine hygiene product brand Always would be removing the Venus female symbol from its packaging. CBS News reported, “The announcement follows pleas from LGBTQ activists to make the labeling more inclusive of transgender and non-binary customers.”

When Netflix posted a video clip of a cartoon child explaining pansexuality, probably the last thing they expected was to be attacked by the super woke Twitter scolds. And yet that’s exactly what happened, to the point of the Big Mouth creators being forced to apologize to "trans, pan, and bi communities" for the scene being problematic and exclusionary.



Unlike some other businesses and corporations, South Park and Comedy Central aren't afraid of offending Communist China. In fact, they doubled down in Wednesday night's episode "SHOTS!!!" by having a major character shout, "[Bleep] the Chinese government!"



Comedian Terrence K. Williams of “The Deplorables” comedy troupe, pleaded for help Friday amidst fears Twitter was targeting his account for his support of President Trump.

This week, 250 news organizations around the world are colluding to produce global warming propaganda in the days surrounding the UN climate summit on September 23. Variety magazine is one of the publications involved and they reported on Hollywood’s efforts to combat global warming, wondering if the entertainment industry is doing enough to sway public opinion.



On Monday, it was reported that inaugural Women’s March co-chairs Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour were being replaced with 16 new board members. The Washington Post had the scoop, and its headline announcing “Women’s March cutting ties with three original board members accused of anti-Semitism” made it sound like the radical left-wing group was finally taking a stand against anti-Semitism within its leadership, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Recently, the University of Vermont Medical Center was accused of forcing a nurse to assist with an abortion against her will, a violation of federal conscience rights laws. According to Vice, the fact that a pro-life nurse objected to performing an abortion “shows we need to be more discerning about who is worthy of serving the public.” So much for the right to choose.
