If there’s one night to skip out on going to the movies, mark your calendar for July 31. That’s the night Kathy Griffin is unleashing her first ever movie theater experience complete with Q&A and an entire weekend’s worth of melodramatic material from her Trump Derangement Syndrome-inspired novella, “I, Victim.”
Being a lefty journalist means never having to say you’re sorry. Good thing, too. You’d be so busy wiping egg from your face you’d barely have time to scream about climate change causing pregnant hens to fly. Take media-types’ early, swooning support for Al Jazeera’s attempts to enter the U.S. market. Sure, character witnesses Nicholas Kristof, Brian Stelter and the Boston Globe said, The Beheading Channel is dishonest, anti-Israel and anti-American, but it’s a fresh, intriguing anti-Israel and American bias.
Monday at The View, the hosts heaped praise on 2020 Democrat candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg for being one of the few Democrats who agreed to do a town hall on Fox News, this past Sunday. Co-host Joy Behar loved that Buttigieg attacked the right-leaning network at one point, and the other hosts commended the Democrat for trying to reach the other side.
On his weekly HBO show Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took a shot at Meghan McCain, now the outspoken conservative on ABC's The View. It came as Oliver discussed the Eurovision song contest, which included a kooky anti-capitalist sado-masochist rock band from Iceland called Hatari, and one member (shown in bondage gear) was the son of Iceland's ambassador to England. Oliver joked: "You may be thinking that’s the most embarrassing child of a prominent political figure you’ve ever seen, but let me remind you of the continued existence of Meghan McCain!"
Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin dedicated Sunday’s edition of Life, Liberty, & Levin to promoting his new book Unfreedom of the Press (set for release Tuesday) with Fox & Friends: Weekend co-host Pete Hegseth and, as expected, “the Great One” didn’t hold back, throwing the liberal media through a wood chipper and calling out their rampant Trump hatred.
The networks have suddenly discovered Congressman Justin Amash. After mostly ignoring him for the last two years, NBC ABC and CBS hyped the Republican this weekend after the libertarian called for Donald Trump’s impeachment. On NBC’s Today, reporter Kristen Welker identified the Freedom Caucus as “far right.” She touted, “The President is under fire from a member of his own party, Michigan’s Republican Congressman Justin Amash, a member of the far-right Freedom Caucus and a frequent critic of the President.” How many Democratic caucuses get branded “far-left?”
The New York Times has developed a very strange niche beat: Gather up tweets mocking a British conservative (a reliable source of mirth for the liberal media Twitterati), and then shape it into a “news” story for the enjoyment of its own liberal readership. The latest subject of mockery culled from online British “wits” was former Conservative Party British Prime Minister David Cameron, who is releasing an autobiography in a few months. Richard Perez-Pena, the paper’s London-based International News Editor, stooped to gather up mean tweets for Saturday’s “Before Book Is Published, British Mock The Author.” Stop the presses!
Good news for the underdwellers in our apocalyptic capitalist reality; the socialist revolution will be televised! The new streaming platform Means TV aims to launch soon, providing anti-capitalist propaganda to true believers in the trenches, looking to inspire hope as they toil in this free-market hellscape. Should we point out the irony that these worker party broadcasts will sit behind a subscription paywall?
Facebook’s COO claims that breaking up the company will put America at a disadvantage to China. During a May 17 CNBC interview with Julia Boorstin, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg tried to dodge government regulation by appealing to American interests.
The Women’s March has a new agenda item: to delete all signs of President Donald Trump from social media. On May 20, the left-wing activist organization prepared 300,000 signatures as a petition to ban Trump, to be delivered at Twitter headquarters in San Francisco and New York City.
Joe Scarborough claims that presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is "mainstreaming" the Democrat party, ignoring his hard-left policy positions that include support for the Green New Deal, and proposals to abolish the Electoral College and pack the Supreme Court.
With the outbreak of controversy over recent state abortion laws aiming to challenge the United States' currently extreme pro-abortion regime, pro-life voices have notably been able to make their case on several of the nation's top Hispanic television networks.
Sunday's Washington Post Magazine carried an article on how leftist Robert Mueller superfans -- oops, we won't explicitly label them ideologically -- the "Mueller faithful" are handling the hard fact that their hero failed to allege Trump colluded with the Russian government, and failed to render a verdict on obstruction of justice. This is not how they wanted this story to turn out!
Looking for leverage to get the Democrats to fund a flame-shooting border wall, President Trump promises to refuse to resupply the International Space Station until Democrats agree to the funding in the May 19 episode of Showtime’s Our Cartoon President. Pitting suffering astronauts against the president, media reports cause Trump to begin to lose support. He even loses support from loyal Trump supporters like Sean Hannity, along with Ann Coulter who appears on Hannity’s show.
CBS’s social justice mini-series The Red Line finally came to an end on May 19. It’s just another series that has promoted obvious progressive talking points like cops shooting black people and the “peaceful” Black Lives Matter movement. The final two episodes likewise end not with a bang but with a whimper as they preach intolerance in the name of gay acceptance.
