The co-hosts of The View on Monday hammered Supreme nominee Brett Kavanaugh and took very seriously the sexual assault claims against the conservative. Co-host Joy Behar deemed them “credible” and called for the nomination to be delayed. On a day like this, it’s important to remember that these women are hypocrites who have a double standard when it comes to sex accusations. If it’s a liberal politician like Bill Clinton or Hollywood director Roman Polanski, they don’t seem to care.
Over the weekend, several Fox News Channel shows have repeatedly given attention to the awful tragedy that anti-MS13 activist Evelyn Rodriguez was struck and killed by an SUV at the site of her daughter's murder two years to the day after the death of her daughter. Rodriguez had been one of President Donald Trump's guests at this year's State of the Union speech, and the President tweeted out condolences on Friday night.
Pro-life advertisements on Twitter are censored immediately. But ads for female genital mutilation? Those got approved. The Dawoodi Bohra Women for Religious Freedom posted a tweet on September 9 promoting khafz, or female circumcision. This tweet was allowed by Twitter Ads to become a sponsored tweet, popping up in people’s feeds randomly.
There’s finally a ray of hope for the liberals that have been demanding Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s head on a silver platter. One paltry accusation of sexual assault has been levied at the SCOTUS candidate and the progressive world is having a field day. Hollywood liberals have taken to social media to blast Kavanaugh for his alleged abusive past (if one unsubstantiated allegation can be called a past), because it’s the only thing they’ve got to delay his confirmation.
After a week of leaked Google emails and videos implying that Google may have tried to influence the 2016 election, it’s time for some answers. Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told head of Family Research Council Tony Perkins on his Washington Watch radio show that it was time for Google to “come into a hearing.”
On September 14th, the Twitter followers of University of Virginia professor William Bradford Wilcox woke up to something dismaying. In a tweet, Dr. Wilcox drew attention to two advertisements put out by the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS). The advertisements implore young teenagers and young adults to use protection during sexual intercourse. Hardly tweet-worthy, you say? Never doubt how frivolous government agencies can get when it comes to family issues.
Role reversal on today's Morning Joe? Joe Scarborough and Donny Deutsch took a hard line on Brett Kavanaugh. But Mika Brzezinski suggested that the statute of limitations serve as a guide to dealing with the accusations, and warned Dems against playing "dirty" on the Kavanaugh confirmation. Singling out Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, Scarborough warned that any Republican supporting Kavanaugh would be forever "branded" for voting to confirm the Justice casting the deciding vote on Roe v. Wade.Donny Deutsch took it a dramatic step further, declaring: "I believe Kavanaugh is dead at this point. I would be shocked if he was ever a Supreme Court Justice."
Retiring Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) went on the most recent edition of Univision's weekly political talker Al Punto, in order to discuss immigration and the Trump administration's response to the devastation that Hurricane Maria wrought upon Puerto Rico. But in the process of scoring a point against the administration, he smeared the United States Armed Forces.
An MRC study of all ABC, CBS and NBC evening news coverage of the President this year finds reporters used highly-charged words to paint him as unhinged or out-of-control. Viewers heard Trump variously described as “furious” (17 times), “fuming” (14), “outraged” (8), “venting” (5), “infuriated” (5), “livid” (3), “enraged” (3), “seething” (2), or just plain-old “angry” (23). The President was also “on the warpath,” “volcanic,” “unglued,” “spoiling for a fight” and even “went ballistic,” according to reporters at various times this year.
Besides gay rights, Shameless, Showtime’s hit liberal show, has yet another social justice cause to champion. This time it's equal pay.
On Saturday morning, CBS and NBC both ran predictable reports arguing that human activity is causing global warming, which is causing hurricanes like Florence to be worse, while those who are skeptical are derided as "climate change deniers." By contrast, global warming skeptic Joe Bastardi appeared on both Friday's Fox News at Night and Thursday's Hannity show on FNC. He argued that, while it is true that climate has always undergone change, past hurricane seasons have actually been worse than those in recent decades, as he doubted that humans are making a significant impact on the climate.
As the Media Research Center’s Bill D’Agostino and Rich Noyes discovered back in May of this year, the liberal media have a fetish for porn star Stormy Daniel’s lawyer Michael Avenatti (or as Fox News host Tucker Carlson calls him, the “creepy porn lawyer”). Apparently, Avenatti’s plethora of TV appearances meant he met a benchmark for a “serious” run at being president in 2020, according to CNN media reporter Brian Stelter on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources.”
New York Times reporter Sarah Lyall, fiercely anti-Brexit, has made it a pastime to belittle iconoclastic, shock-haired Conservative Party politician and Brexit proponent Boris Johnson, which she does in Sunday’s paper: “Witty and Shameless, He Aims to Run Britain – A Populist, Johnson Fits Trump’s Mold.” One can assume that the comparison to Trump is not intended as a compliment. She informed readers that "Moderate Conservatives regard him as stealthy and dangerous." But she didn't try to prematurely bury Johnson's political career, as she did in 2016 when she called him a liar in a news story.
On Saturday's AM Joy, several regular MSNBC panel members attacked the Republican party as a "racist party" whose leader, President Donald Trump, is engaging in "modern-day holocaust denial" and treats Hispanics like "animals" as host Joy Reid was joined by NBC News columnist Kurt Bardella, NPR's Maria Hinojosa, and Democratic pollster Fernand Amandi.
In the midst of interviewing government officials responsible for coordinating the federal response to Hurricane Florence, all three broadcast Sunday shows harangued those relief workers with questions about President Trump’s recent comments about Hurricane Maria.
