CBS’s pay-cable Showtime channel is the latest backer of con artist/”comedian” Sacha Baron Cohen’s performance art, as in the movies Borat and Bruno. It’s a new TV show called Who Is America? and is designed, as usual, to mock Americans – mostly conservatives -- as gullible and stupid.
The New York Times Magazine devoted nearly 6,000 words on July 15 to Michael Avenatti, the Trump-trashing lawyer representing porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims she had sex with Donald Trump. How is he worthy of so much attention?This man is running a one-man show trafficking in anti-Trump propaganda.
No one is more upset about Trump’s second Supreme Court nomination than the liberal media....unless it's the entertainment elites in Hollywood and Manhattan. These liberals couldn’t see the flagrant hypocrisy surrounding their sentences as they unloaded their fear and loathing of Brett Kavanaugh on television and Twitter.
The one guarantee about Trump appointing Judge Brett Kavanaugh is that the Democrats, fueled by their mindless street mobs, will try to destroy him. It’s how Democrats behave. It is not how the “news” media should behave. Is there anyone who disputes that? But it is how they will comport themselves, because they are one with their Democrat brothers and sisters.
In the liberal mind, the way to prove you value something is by funding it with taxpayer money. So if you love journalism, you take taxpayer money and give it to journalists. It is a sacred mantra of the Left that corporate funding of media inevitably results in a pro-corporate media bias. Consistency would dictate that government funding of media would lead to a pro-government bias. Not in New Jersey. The idea of the press as a check and a balance on government has just been placed on the Jersey Turnpike and squashed to pieces.
You can count on CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter to stay true to the trash-Trump parade. At the liberal Aspen Ideas Festival, he interviewed Washington Post executive editor Marty Baron. Stelter claimed to speak for the crowd when he began with the question “Are we living through a national emergency? And if so, how in the heck should journalists be covering it that way?”
The late-night hosts hate Donald Trump, so the idea that they would make friendly alliances shouldn’t be shocking. But as we’ve come to understand, in today’s world anything that reflects negatively on this president becomes “news.” So when Stephen Colbert at CBS called up Jimmy Kimmel at NBC and Conan O’Brien at TBS for a joint mockery of Trump, the liberal media jazzed up its importance as "Historic."
The “news” you see at night on broadcast television is defined by what “outrage” has been perpetrated by President Donald Trump. Last week, ABC, CBS, and NBC devoted an enormous chunk of their air time to illegal-immigrant parents being separated from their children by federal agents – 128 minutes, or almost half of their total nightly air time, not including commercials. But from January 1 through June 22, the networks have only mustered 32 minutes between them on the war in Afghanistan, barely 10 minutes each.
CNN host Van Jones, the former Obama White House aide, interviewed NBC late-night host Seth Meyers with the usual reverence that liberals offer to comedians of the Resistance. “You are doing a phenomenal service to the country,” Jones gushed. “You are an icon, a legend.” But the best comedy in this interview came when Jones asked about the jesters lining up against Trump.
Barack Obama is swaggering around in his post-presidency, claiming he didn’t really have any scandals as president. In February, he said we “didn't have a scandal that embarrassed us.” This only means shamelessness can seem like a winning tactic. In May, he repeated “I didn't have scandals, which seems like it shouldn't be something you brag about.”
Feminists who embrace the "right" to abortion – the right to destroy an unborn life on a woman’s demand at any point in pregnancy – just will not accept they are powerful enough in Hollywood. Abortion scenes in TV and the movies need to be more “educational” and end the “stigma” of violence against babies, such as being torn to pieces and feeling the pain of being chemically burned to pieces. Both things have been proven true after the 20-week period, yet it remains a "stigma" against their mothers.
Anyone who walks past a newsstand knows that Time magazine hates Donald Trump. In 2016, they pictured his orange face melting on the cover, and then months later, that cover face melted into an orange puddle. They considered it unthinkable that he would win. Then once he won, two different covers imagined an endangered Trump in the middle of a raging storm.
What is it about our entertainment elites that makes them think they are so much wiser than everyone else? Why do they seem to think that comedians like Samantha Bee and Trump impersonators like Alec Baldwin are going to save America with their rants?
This little boy was bursting with life. He learned to spell, read, do basic math. He could even sign, a talent he employed, along with his beaming smile, to shower affection on the world. For eight years, against all odds, he persevered.
But then one night, Paulie fell ill and within 24 hours, he was suddenly gone. When the news came out, an entire community was shattered
Who knew we would look back at Roseanne Barr's crotch-grabbing massacre of the national anthem in 1990 and see a mere flesh wound on her career? She embarrassed herself, mocking America in front of America, but her hit show rolled along.But one egregiously racist tweet destroyed the Roseanne reboot of 2018 in a Hollywood minute.
On the Memorial Day weekend, NBC’s Chuck Todd opened his show Meet the Press by angrily lecturing his viewers about a so-called Trump “tactical playbook” on how to spin the Mueller probe and the FBI sending an “informant” into his presidential campaign. Trump was "branding" his "crisis." Wait, calling it a "crisis" is branding....
As the television season wraps up, it seems that Satan is having a bad year on Fox. Not only did the still-Murdoch-owned network cancel its devil drama Lucifer, but also The Exorcist, which “blessed” us with anti-religious plots about sexually active gay and straight priests and mercy-killing nuns. Is Fox going soft? Rest easy atheists. There's still Family Guy, which made a mockery of God the Father on Pentecost Sunday.
Months ago, the Old Media proclaimed Donald Trump was more than a bit nutty to insist his campaign was the subject of Obama administration surveillance. Now it’s emerging that this wasn’t the slightest bit nutty. The New York Times reported -- in a tone much like having their fingernails dragged across a chalkboard – that the FBI used an “informant” (not a “spy”!) to chat up (and in one case, dangle money at) Trump staffers to investigate Russian finagling with the 2016 election.
Some were scandalized when the secular celebrities from Rihanna to Madonna dressed up in glitzy bishop’s hats and bejeweled crowns of crosses for the hot-ticket gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan, built around a theme of the Catholic imagination. The Catholic Church has a rich history of imagery for fashion designers to explore. But their tweaking of religious imagery was a child’s game of patty-cake next to Time magazine, which delighted in publishing a related piece: “The Story Behind This Photo of Stormy Daniels as the Virgin Mary.”
Our “news” media are addicted to damaging internal leaks from the Trump White House, especially when they make Team Trump look wildly insensitive. The two most common words in the press today are “sources say.” Now the country is spending a week with the media demanding a public apology from White House aide Kelly Sadler, who reportedly said in bad taste the administration didn’t have to care about John McCain’s dramatic opposition to CIA director-designate Gina Haspel, because “he’s dying anyway.”
