A few days before Steve Bannon left the Trump White House, President Trump noted that Bannon had not signed on until “very late" in the 2016 campaign. Still, much like a ballplayer acquired just prior to the trading deadline who puts his team over the top, Bannon made a crucial contribution to Trump’s win, suggests New York’s Jonathan Chait. Bannon realized well before he joined the Trump campaign that if Hillary-bashing had a respectable face, it could find a far larger and more persuadable audience than the old-school wacky conspiratorial stuff did.


Giving $1 million to the conservative-bashing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) wasn’t enough for Apple. It is matching donations by its employees and using iTunes to encourage users to donate even more to the SPLC, which regularly depicts mainstream conservative organizations as “hate groups.”


All eyes were on President Trump Monday night as he addressed the nation about the country’s future actions in regard to the war in Afghanistan. And without giving too many details, the President declared that there would be some form of troop increase but noted that there were conditions to our aid and limits to the costs we were willing to bear. But that wasn’t enough for MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, who bemoaned Trump’s address and eagerly awaited White House leaks of the details.


On Monday night, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC each broke in with special reports for President Trump’s speech announcing his Afghanistan strategy and, in the course of the post-speech analyses, ABC and NBC lobbed cold water on the plans seeing as how low Trump’s approval ratings have been.


ABC, CBS, and NBC's evening newscasts on Monday all failed to cover the thwarted bombing of a Confederate monument in Houston, Texas. The Big Three networks led and concluded each program with full reports on the solar eclipse that crossed the United States, but didn't even set aside a news brief to the arrest of Andrew Cecil Schneck, who allegedly prepared explosives and tried to set them off near the Texas landmark.


Let’s offer some congratulations to AMC’s Preacher for giving me the fastest, most efficient subject for an article yet. The latest episode featured a subject so embarrassingly crass that I’m shocked I got through the entire episode without slamming my head against a wall. It only takes three simple words: Jesus having sex.


Over the course of last week, on NBC and MSNBC, host Chuck Todd gave a leg up to the violent Antifa movement by letting them defend their assaults on the police and innocent people not once, but twice. Todd’s interviews showed just how tolerant he was of those who use violence to shut down free speech. And while Todd was absent from MTP Daily on Monday, Katy Tur picked up his torch and proudly pushed back against the First Amendment’s acknowledgment of a person’s right to free speech.


Hours before President Trump’s Monday night speech announcing a U.S. troops surge in Afghanistan, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews admitted that he’s a “dove” “already worried about tonight” because it’s a “pure” escalation by the military “establishment.” It’s worth noting that this represented an admirable consistency by Matthews, seeing as how he also criticized a troop surge by President Obama on December 1, 2009 (but more on that later).


During Monday morning’s edition of the Fox & Friends program on the Fox News Channel, co-host Ainsley Earhardt moderated a debate between two guests over whether Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal should step down after the Democratic official posted an online message that “I hope Trump is assassinated!”


New on August 21: CNN host Brian Stelter wondered if President Trump has an illness that makes him unfit for office: “Is the President of the United States a racist? Is he suffering from some kind of illness? Is he fit for office? And if he’s unfit, then what?”


Operation Choke Point, one of the more disgraceful episodes in U.S. law enforcement and regulatory history, officially ended last week. Naturally, since it was entirely a stultifying enterprise of the Obama administration, the establishment press, as it almost universally has since its inception in 2013, has ignored its demise.


Joss Whedon is a feminist. The director is a paragon of exquisitely progressive feminist sensibilities. He’s a right-thinking social justice warrior who values women as human beings, who believes in pay equality and probably likes to have a good cry.

That’s according to his fawning fans in the media, and Whedon himself, of course. To hear them tell it, the only thing that stands between Whedon and total feminist perfection is biology (and a sense of humor). Surprise! His ex-wife tells of a very different Joss Whedon.

 


In an article posted on Sunday at The Root, race-obsessed MSNBC contributor and The Root politics editor Jason Johnson devotes his column to rationalizing the verbal harassment aimed at two white high school girls who visited predominantly black Howard University as one wore a pro-Trump hat and the other a pro-Trump T-shirt. And, a couple days earlier, the MSNBC contributor devoted an article to describing the Trump administration as a "terrorism presidency," and tagged the President as a "terrorist sympathizer."


Just when you thought the media couldn’t get any more profane or irreverent in bashing the patriotic, it got worse. Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story trailer was just released on August 21 on Twitter, and it’s horrific. As promised, the new season, to be aired on FX, called “Cult,” addressed the political tensions between Trump and Hillary. The preview showed clowns putting on masks made in the likeness of Trump and Clinton, with Clinton wagging her finger at the screen. But of course, the anti-patriotic America-hating climax of it all was the blood that was poured profusely on the American flag.


Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued a statement today in response to NBC’s Chuck Todd again giving Mark Bray, a prominent voice in Antifa, a platform to promote his violent leftist agenda on Sunday’s Meet the Press. Todd is "guilty of aiding and abetting" extremist groups "which use terror to silence their opposition."
