Do as I say, not as I do. The censorious ideas pushed by popular Twitter #Resistance twins have come back to bite them. Activists Ed and Brian Krassenstein were permanently suspended from Twitter May 23. The Daily Beast reported the liberal Twitter stars had allegedly been banned for “[breaking] the site’s rules about operating fake accounts and purchasing fake interactions with their accounts.”
Acting chops aside, Anne Hathaway has always looked like the type of person whose superpowers include the ability to give one heck of a condescending lecture. As it turns out, the white woman is chiding other “white women” for fighting for the lives of unborn children of any color. On social media, the Ocean's 8 actress slammed the “complicity of white women” in producing the recent pro-life Alabama legislation signed by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey.
Even CNBC's more liberal anchor wasn't thrilled with newly announced plans from Democratic candidates to tax Wall Street transactions. Reporter Ylan Mui told Squawk Box viewers on May 23 about plans from liberal candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Pete Buttigieg (D-IN) to tax Wall Street to pay for expensive things like "free" college.
On Friday, NBC’s Today show aired an exclusive interview with Khaled Al-Batsh, one of the leaders of the Palestinian terrorist organization Islamic Jihad. During that exchange, Al-Batsh was provided with a media megaphone to smear President Trump as a “thug” and denounce the “Israeli occupation” of the Gaza Strip.
Could it be CNN's evaporating audience that has one of its hosts taking one of its infinite swipes at the Fox News behemoth that has so badly thrashed CNN in the ratings? On Friday's New Day, co-host John Berman quipped that the Fox Business Network might be "on the payroll" of President Trump, and might have prepared an edited mashup of Nancy Pelosi stammering her way through remarks during her weekly press conference on Thursday.
During primaries like the one currently underway for the 2020 presidential campaign, Democrats are fond of claiming that, unlike “rich Republicans,” they “stand up for the little guy.” That concept became much more difficult to promote on Thursday after a report showed how lucrative of a legal career Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has had, even though N.Y. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quickly rushed to her defense and even took aim at a --- wait for it --- female Washington Post reporter's salary.
CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter submitted to an interview on Vox's podcast The Ezra Klein Show, which was meant to be a sober liberal salon, but then it got a little testy. Klein must have surprised Stelter when Stelter tried to claim only Fox tries to make its viewers "pissed" as a business model. Klein wasn't having that at all.
John Walker Lindh, “The American Taliban” was released from prison three years early for “good behavior” Thursday, despite evidence that he still clung to his jihadist ways. When news of his imminent release broke earlier in the week, the liberal media rightly condemned it. But a peek into the Media Research Center’s vast archives showed that the media was overly concerned for his well-being at the hands of the George W. Bush administration.
The media has been heavily covering the recent jabs that President Donald Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi have been lobbing at each other. Brinkley, rather than remaining objective, couldn’t help but drooling over Pelosi.
Ever heard of the phrase “guns don’t kill people, people kill people?” Apparently, the new version of The Twilight Zone doesn’t believe the maxim is true. The CBS All-Access reboot introduces the crazy idea that guns can shoot themselves, and that we somehow value them more than people.
President Trump held an impromptu press conference on Wednesday to express his dissatisfaction with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who accused him of a "coverup" before a scheduled meeting on a massive infrastructure bill. The USA Today headline screamed "Trump: Drop inquiries or no deals." This headline implies that Trump wants all congressional oversight canceled before they can work together on legislation.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews took an interesting tact during a discussion Thursday night regarding impeachment and the feud between President Trump and Speaker Pelosi, challenging New York Times columnist and fellow lefty Michelle Goldberg over whether Pelosi’s actually praying for the welfare of the President considering how she’s “gaslighting” him with questions about his mental state.
On Monday, CBS correspondent Roxana Saberi used Iraqi President Barham Salih to shame the United States for the military response to threats posed by Iran against U.S. forces and interests in the region. Then, on Thursday’s CBS Evening News, she appeared to up the ante by passing along a threat of violence against the U.S. made by an Iraqi politician who was part of an Iranian-backed “militia”.
Another day, another lawsuit for the creepy porn lawyer. It seems as though it was only yesterday when Michael Avenatti was touted as being a potential Democratic 2020 presidential candidate and the golden boy of the mainstream media as a whole. The incessant fawning over Avenatti by his friends at CNN and MSNBC is difficult to forget, however, the networks are failing to acknowledge the enabling role they played in his rise to fame.
How dark are things in Trump’s America? So bad that left-wing comedian Sacha Baron Cohen told Variety, “[W]e are past that point” where politics is no longer funny and “there is a danger” to not taking things seriously. “I think you need people to remain repulsed,” he said, urging them to keep up “their passion, and bring it to the voting booth.”
