Big Abortion is jumping into the 2020 race with big numbers. It was announced Thursday that Planned Parenthood is launching what CBS News’ Kate Smith reported is “the biggest electoral effort in its history: a $45 million spend to support presidential, congressional and state-level candidates in the 2020 elections who support abortion rights.”



On Thursday FX released a trailer for its upcoming series on Hulu Mrs. America about conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly’s fight against radical feminists and the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in the 1970s. You can tell, based on the video and coverage of it, where sympathies are supposed to lie.



Add Toy Story 4 to the list of ridiculous things called racist. In a January 3 op-ed, The Hollywood Reporter managed to deem a movie about animated children’s playthings to be problematic. While offering effusive praise for Toy Story 4 being “exuberantly entertaining” and “creatively conceived,” in the end, author Stephen Galloway reported he was left with a “slightly bitter taste” and the “sense that something was naggingly wrong.”



The first awards show of the busy season is now in the books. On Sunday night, The 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards aired on NBC. Ricky Gervais was the show’s host and he did a great job. Unfortunately, his advice to the celebrities to skip the political speeches wasn’t heeded by all.



After host Ricky Gervais admonished the Golden Globes winners not to bring up politics in their acceptance speeches because they "know nothing about the real world," actress Michelle Williams did just that with a two minute long screed supporting abortion while accepting the award for Best Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for TV.



Hollywood just found another way to lecture us about global warming while patting themselves on the back! Along with acceptance speeches that will no doubt feature political screeds, the Golden Globes will be sending America a message with its vegan dinner menu this year.



If I had a dollar for every time a critic championed a progressive show or movie for being “timely,” I’d be rich. But now that a film is timely in favor of the right, suddenly this is an abomination. In a Saturday column published in Variety, Owen Gleiberman complained about director Clint “Eastwood’s way of spinning our attitude toward the media” in his latest movie that was released on Friday. Richard Jewell is about the security guard unjustly accused of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing.



Saturday Night Live went after a conservative family group for objecting to a lesbian ad on the Hallmark Channel during the sketch comedy show’s December 14 episode hosted by actress Scarlett Johansson.



The Obamas have Netflix and now Hillary Clinton has Hulu giving her the documentary treatment. Because the world clearly hasn’t gotten enough of Hillary and the 2016 election three years ago. In news that will only excite her most fervent fan girls and "nasty women," on Friday the 13th, Hillary’s twitter account promoted a Hulu tweet announcing a documentary series titled Hillary and teaser trailer, with the comment, “I've done my share of interviews in my lifetime, but nothing like this.



A pro-abortion group called the Texas Equal Access (TEA) Fund has a rather sick message at Christmastime.



I know it’s South Park and nothing’s sacred, but come on! Did they really have to have Santa AND Jesus snorting cocaine in their season finale Christmas episode? On Wednesday’s “Christmas Snow” episode, South Park had too many drunk driving crashes so Santa got a county ordinance to stop all liquor sales until January 2.



Into a discussion about the treatment of the bodies of aborted and miscarried babies, the Washington Post brought an obnoxiously flippant parody piece purporting to support funerals for sperm. In other words, presenting us with an apple and saying, "This is a banana."



One actress is trying to give Gloria Steinem a run for her money in pro-abortion extremism. Jameela Jamil (The Good Place), who had an abortion when she was younger, is so exercised about abortion that she’s been raging at pro-lifers on Twitter.



As if the liberal agenda teaching kids to be anti-gun and anti-Founders wasn’t enough, now they’re explicitly connecting today’s mass gun murders to historical mistreatment of minorities.



Apple TV+’s flagship drama, The Morning Show, starring Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Steve Carell, gives a behind the scenes look at the making of a morning news show. In fact, the series has been pretty accurate in showing liberal media bias, from a reporter's anti-coal rant to the celebration of a pro-abortion protest. This week, we see a producer spreading climate alarmism behind the scenes.



Although there are a few shows to be thankful for, overall, tv is full of anti-conservative and anti-Thanksgiving messages. They'd rather have you feeling guilty than grateful. From calling Thanksgiving "unethical" to equating it to "genocide," "racism" and "Nazis," these shows have twisted the spirit of Thanksgiving into something unrecognizable and grotesque. Take a look at these turkeys.



Adding to the recent wave of tv series revivals, Showtime’s lesbian drama The L Word is returning to the network. The reboot nobody wanted, titled The L Word: Generation Q, will premiere December 8 and this time, they plan to be so horrifically disgusting, they’ll have you seeing red — literally.



The newest form of virtue signaling for the left involves cutting more than just carbon emissions. Now men are getting their nether regions snipped to save the planet – let’s see if this craze catches on!



Last week, South Park aired a classic episode that skewered the trans athlete phenomenon. But IndieWire author Jude Dry, whose pronouns are listed on Twitter as “they/them/theirs,” was not amused. Dry's IndieWire article this Wednesday hilariously claimed the episode “provoked an immediate and universal backlash,” (only if backlash means laughter).



Wednesday night’s episode of FXX’s It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, was all about abortion. In one storyline, the gang tries to get an abortion for a dog and, in another, a woman’s right to chop her hair off is debated like abortion. Both are about as crazy and crass as you’d expect from It’s Always Sunny.
