Big tech has presented many problems for the legislators in Washington to tackle. One of those is regulation. Many politicians on both sides of the aisle have discussed government regulation of Big Tech. Government regulation and amending Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act are seen as a solution to the scandals plaguing tech companies.
You haven't been imagining it. Network television has seen “a marked increase in offensive content” and “expansion of adult-themed content into shows rated appropriate for children to watch” the Parents Television Council (PTC) confirmed on Tuesday with the release of its latest report on TV content ratings.
New Day co-hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota first take turns reading out loud a letter that President Trump recently sent to Turkish President Recep Erdogan. The letter contained blunt language, by which, for example, Trump urged Erdogan not to be a "tough guy" or a "fool." Berman then turns to Jim Acosta, CNN's White House correspondent and Trump antagonist extraordinaire, and sneeringly said: "We have this letter with this language that isn't exactly at Ph.D. level."
Television journalists these days sound so similar to Democrats on impeachment that it's nearly impossible to tell them apart. Weeks before the impeachment inquiry was even announced, talking heads were passing off Democratic talking points as objective information about the President's alleged wrongdoing.
The Discovery Channel's six part documentary series "Why We Hate" which was executive produced by Steven Spielberg premiers on Sunday on the Discovery Channel. So do you have any idea which person is being focused upon by the Daily Beast as an example of perpetrating hate? Of course you do. It is the Big Bad Orange Man aka President Donald Trump.
In an interview spanning the last 30 minutes of Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, Megyn Kelly returned to television for the first time since NBC News cut ties with her and, appearing on her old home Fox News, Kelly lambasted the liberal media in the second half of the interview for their rampant, anti-Trump bias with a “hyperfocus on impeachment.” Carlson pivoted to “the state of journalism today” from NBC’s horrid state of affairs over their attempted squashing of Ronan Farrow’s 2017 bombshell on Harvey Weinstein and the Matt Lauer sexual misconduct scandal.
Modern Family has always dismissed the critical role of a mother with its gay male couple raising a daughter. It has also inserted feminist talking points in the past. In this week’s episode, “Pool Party,” on October 15, the show highlighted two incoherent premises of the feminist left: Corporations are “corrupt and mercenary,” but women should leave their babies to work for them or they will “resent [their] children.”
New York Times reporter Isabella Grullon Paz devoted nearly 1,500 words (plus three flattering photographs of her subjects) in her Wednesday edition profile of the Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter at Ohio State University: “Why Some Young Voters Bolt the Democratic Party For Democratic Socialism.” The long story was long on pushing the students' youthful enthusiasm, and entirely absent of questioning the wisdom of trying to outflank the Democratic Party, already careening toward the left on gun control, abortion, immigration, and transgenderism.
South Park's newest episode, "Let Them Eat Goo" which aired Wednesday mocks LeBron James and his lack of defense of free speech in the current crisis of Hong Kong against China. The episode concentrates on diets and plant-based foods, and on the students at South Park's public school who are protesting the unhealthy food they are being fed, especially meat from animals.
Imagine the concept of journalists asking probing questions of candidates. Some might find that idea to be off-limits. And some of those who do actually consider themselves to be journalists whose main mission is to protect Democrat candidates, namely Elizabeth Warren.
Over 72-hours. It has been over 72-hours since ABC’s World News Tonight first falsely claimed a special event at a gun range in Kentucky was footage of a Turkish attack on civilian Kurds in northern Syria. And in that 72-hours, the network had rejected all calls for an on-air correction, apology, and explanation to their viewers as to how the misinformation made it through their supposedly rigorous vetting process.
Once again, pompous leftist, MSNBC host, NBC News political director, and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd cloaked himself as someone who’s above the fray on Wednesday’s MTP Daily, insisting that he’s like “a lot of us who — who don’t live in partisan places.” Todd’s delusional take simultaneously occurred while decrying Republicans as the ones playing political games by criticizing President Trump on Syria but opposing his impeachment.
Aren’t all Americans jaded from the fawning media coverage President Trump receives on a daily basis? Of course, anyone who has watched the news over the past three years would know this statement is patently absurd. Yet, that did not halt MSNBC correspondent Tiffany Cross from laughably accusing the media of pro-Trump bias during the cable channel's post-debate analysis Tuesday night.
CBS This Morning on Wednesday joined the chorus of media personalities declaring Elizabeth Warren the front-runner. Major Garrett hailed her “poise” and “passion” and offered a value neutral assessment on her refusal to give a straight answer on the cost of Medicare for all. After co-host Anthony Mason wondered “how did she handle being the front-runner,” Garrett responded, “With poise, passion, and on Medicare for all, evasion.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has had a smorgasbord of problems to deal with in the last few months, including death threats. Now, big-name liberals from mega-donors to media elites and Hollywood circles are trying to oust him from office by packing his primary challenger with campaign cash.
