The hosts of The View saved time to bash White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Monday’s show, after she announced last week that she would be leaving her post at the end of the month. Whoopi and Joy Behar reveled in the news, mocking her while Sunny Hostin took a more dramatic tone, blasting Sanders as a liar who had forever tainted the position.
Facebook is making a desperate attempt to push a Pollyanna philosophy on its users. This might backfire. In a June 14 blog post, Facebook announced an update to its policy.
The New York Times Magazine on June 17 posted a mammoth, 8000-plus word profile on 2020 Democratic contender Elizabeth Warren. The headline for this very long article informed readers, “Elizabeth Warren Is Completely Serious.” The sub-headline sounded even more like a press release: “About income inequality. About corporate power. About corrupt politics. And about being America’s next president.”
Bill Maher satisfied his starvation for the limelight on Friday night’s Real Time by fixating the audience on his obsessive disdain for President Trump and the Republican Party as a whole.
According to The Undefeated senior researcher Martenzie Johnson, bad behavior by fans during this year's NBA Finals is symptomatic of whites' dehumanization of African-American athletes. The fans' boorish treatment of injured Golden State star Kevin Durant prompted Johnson to invoke a centuries-old history of African Americans being characterized as selfish, savage, monkey-like and brainless. His story, "Kevin Durant and the dehumanization of black athletes", appears on an ESPN blog with its own history of race baiting.
Truly, we’ve hit another new low on television. In just the first hour of HBO’s latest series Euphoria, we have rampant graphic underage sex and drug use, a bizarre defense of minors sending nude photos, and the statutory rape of a trans teenager. Somehow, I ended up longing for the simple porn set-up of The Deuce - at least that show is about adults.
Democratic candidates generally don't have much to fear from interviews on National Public Radio, but Morning Edition anchor Steve Inskeep raised our eyebrows by pushing Beto O'Rourke a bit on Friday on what people will be forced to give up under liberal climate-change policies. The liberal media often focus on the Impending Crisis, and then go light on how liberals would crack down on "bad" behaviors.
The front page of Saturday’s New York Times featured White House correspondent Peter Baker’s “news analysis” on Iran and attacks on oil tankers, “Trump’s Foggy Truth Meets Fog of War.” Ostensibly on the controversy over Iran’s culpability in the attack on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, but Baker, whose reporting has grown harsher and more partisan against President Trump, used the crisis as a springboard to attack Trump as a liar who can’t be trusted while the threat of conflict looms: "...for a president known for falsehoods and crisis-churning bombast, the test of credibility appears far more daunting."
Still more evidence that the New York Times will analyze everything Trump does only in the most cynical political terms, reporters Annie Karni and Maggie Haberman immediately put President Trump on the defensive by reducing his administration’s bipartisan criminal justice reform plan to raw political cynicism in Friday’s edition: “The White House Subject Was Criminal Justice. The Subtext was 2020.” It’s galling that the Times, after complaining for years of Republicans using tough-on-crime, gun-rights, anti-gay-marriage stances as “wedge issues,” are now calling reforming the justice system a “wedge issue”!
CNN host and media janitor Brian Stelter set up a pretty easy mess for his cast of liberal media types to clean up during Sunday’s so-called “Reliable Sources”: whether or not the liberal media wanted to see President Trump impeached.
The battle to include a question on citizenship status in the upcoming 2020 U.S. Census has driven Univision beyond its usual brand of activism. Now, the network has evolved into being an active participant in the legal proceedings surrounding the question.
Freshman New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become a darling of the liberal media because of her young age and unabashed promotion of socialism. They celebrated her ludicrous Green New Deal while ignoring her many campaign finance violations and ethics questions. Now, during Sunday’s Good Morning America and This Week, ABC chief White House correspondent Jon Karl hailed the influence the Congresswoman could have over the 2020 Democratic primary process and perhaps “play kingmaker” with her endorsement.
For days now, NBC News has been running a series on NBC Nightly News called “My Big Idea” in which they give 2020 Democrats a chance to push their campaign propaganda with the network’s aid and largely unchallenged. Friday’s edition featured former Housing Secretary Julian Castro, who was demanding universal pre-K. And Saturday’s was about former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper who wanted yet another federal job training program.
In a video produced by The Young Turks internet site, commentator Rick Strom champions ex-NFL quarterback and anthem protestor Colin Kaepernick as a man who promoted life and equality while fighting injustices and bashes Fox News as Trump's state-sponsored network promoting gun manufacturers producing weapons to kill.
Comedy Central has a long-running trend of hate speech against the Catholic Church. On Tuesday, Daily Show host Trevor Noah delighted in four crass jokes about clergy sexual abuse on behalf of Gay Pride Month. What did Catholics do? The Vatican's Congregation for Catholic Education issued a report on how the church should respond to gender theory, and described the leftist promotion of "dimensions of sexuality that are extremely fluid, flexible, and as it were, nomadic."
