NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon unveiled the new paint scheme for his car on CBS’s This Morning. What did he change it to? (Hint: take a look at the White House or your Facebook newsfeed) Yup, you guessed it! A rainbow.
After the Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage, journalists rushed to show an America that agrees with them – but the win wasn’t one-sided.
One or two dissenting opinions is common for the Supreme Court. Four? Not so much. When the Court ruled in favor of gay marriage Friday in Obergefell v. Hodges 5-4, all four dissenting justices (John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito, and Clarence Thomas) wrote opinions decrying the decision of the majority.
Amazon and Apple made a promise to purge their websites of any materials with Confederate flags in order to shun the ‘racism’ that inheres in the image. Well, however true or false this may be, it appears that neither company bothered to follow through completely on their respective promises, leaving online some of their best-selling items that show the Confederate flag.
Rebel flag remains on best-selling products.
Perez Hilton, popular foul-mothed celebrity commentator, has an acting gig – Danny Tanner – otherwise known as the father from Full House. Thankfully, it won’t be on a revived version of the TV show, but a musical, set for an August premiere in Toronto.
The plot will follow Tanner as he “loses his super power of solving any problem with his sensible Dad Speeches (complete with soft piano accompaniment). Follow Danny's wacky and hilarious descent into madness as he slowly turns from wholesome Danny Tanner to foul-mouthed and dark Bob Saget.” (Saget’s stand-up comedy is infamously not family friendly.) Hilton describes the affair as “super silly, ridiculous, naughty fun.”
Promises ‘ridiculous, naughty fun’.
On June 20, a rally in support of traditional marriage drew between 300,000 and 1 million people to Rome. No major news reported on the event, which is strange, considering how much they love reporting on marriage-centric marches.
No one would accuse popular media outlets like USA Today, CNN, and ABC News of ignoring the gay marriage movement, or gays in general. They spent gallons of ink and minutes of airtime on pride parades in the month of June, but they couldn’t spare a drop or a second for Sunday’s rally in Rome.
At a conference last week in Utah, former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney decried the over-reach of Russia’s state-sponsored news outlet RT. Concerned with the obvious parallels between the agendas of RT and Vladimir Putin, Romney exclaimed, “I mean, I turn on my TV here – and there’s RT.”
Who wouldn’t be concerned about a foreign country’s propaganda being spit out 24 hours a day?
Radio host explains why left is ideologically closed while interviewer proves it.
Real estate is always about “location, location, location.” So is media – as a Huffington Post Live interview with conservative talker Hugh Hewitt just proved.
Although Hewitt came onto the show to talk about his new book, The Queen, interviewer Josh Zepps was far more interested in throwing paper darts at conservative media. Every time Hewitt tried to get at the truth of a given topic, Zepps shifted the conversation.
Can Miley Cyrus’s 15 minutes of fame be over? Please? The pop tart has a new plan to be ‘inclusive’ of transgender and ‘gender expansive’ persons – an Instagram campaign! How progressive.

While interviewing fellow comedian Jeff Ross on his show Real Time, Bill Maher brought up Jerry Seinfeld's recent criticism of political correctness.
Maher and Ross went back and forth on the topic, praising Seinfeld’s defense of “comedy as an art form” and decrying “generic,” “watered-down” comedy that adheres to the politically correct standard.
Agree libs should stop ‘taking themselves so seriously.’
He’s no fool, and he certainly doesn’t need pity.
In a Huffington Post Live interview yesterday, Mr. T was asked about everything from the origins of his career to his recent success battling cancer. What the interviewer discovered? All was thanks to God and family.
Though we have come to expect countercultural themes in most mainstream genres like pop and rap, country music has seemed to hold out as long as possible, retaining traditional values in most content. This is certain to change if Billboard has its way.
Kacey Musgraves ‘is helping change the conversation.’
“Caitlyn” Jenner’s transformation was “a culture-shaping, Internet-busting media event of heartfelt human understanding.” These words from the June 8 Washington Post sum up fairly well the mainstream media’s reaction to Jenner’s new identity.
CBS, NBC, and ABC spent a combined 51 minutes of news coverage on Jenner just in the past week, pouring praise and compliments on him at every turn.
To media, reality denying is ‘life-affirming.’
Because even after the Caitlyn Jenner publicity push, we just haven’t heard enough about that tiny fraction of the population struggling against biology and reality, TLC and ABC Family are producing shows promoting transgender activists and their conversion experiences.
ABC Family’s Becoming Us is scheduled to premiere tonight, focusing on a teenager whose parents have recently divorced. As if this were not tragedy enough for the young man, his father, Charlie, is transitioning into a woman named Carly.
