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."
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.
That is the only possible explanation for Politico putting this headline on one of their articles on Saturday: "How Trump Turned Liberal Comedians Conservative." When the reader sees that there is almost no way they can resist finding out how liberal comedians became conservative due to Trump which was the premise of the title on the story by Joanna Weiss. If they expect to find some astounding revelation about how this is even possible they will be sorely disappointed and a bit more than a little upset at Weiss for the very misleading premise.
Just a day after the White House announced the departure of Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, The Washington Post posted a heartwarming tribute to Sanders on its Instagram page. Just kidding. The Post instead followed the lead of cable television; providing nasty commentary describing her as “the queen of gaslighting” and mocking her “curled-lip disdain.”
Friday’s New York Times showed the paper again trying to falsely link the publicly harmful anti-vaccination movement to political conservatism. Reporters Julie Bosman, Patricia Mazzei, and Dan Levin drew the strands together for “Celebrities, Conservatives and Immigrants in Disparate Groups of Skeptics.” It’s not the first time the paper has tried to falsely smear “conservatives” as the main thrust of anti-vaccine action, even though the most recent polling on the matter suggests it’s more of a left-wing cause. Amazingly for a story whose headline blasts “conservatives” for being anti-vaccine, the first sentence features Robert F. Kennedy Jr. from the famous uber-liberal Democrat political family.
Here’s the scene. President Trump gives an interview to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. George famously is the ex-Bill Clinton staffer. George poses a hypothetical to Trump. If he, the President, were offered information on an opponent by a foreign operator, would he take it? To which Trump replied, as per the Washington Post.
On the June 9 Last Week Tonight on HBO, host John Oliver uncorked one of his long faux-comedic crusades for a left-wing cause, in this case the utopian dream of an "Equal Rights Amendment." He mocked its biggest opponent, the late Phyllis Schlafly, as an undesirable wife. I'm not sure how big a sacrifice it was for [her husband] Fred to spend a few hours not hanging out with Phyllis Schlafly. If I had to guess, Fred was absolutely okay with Phyllis getting out of the house for the day. The night, even."
Following up on Friday’s item showing the best (or worst, depending on your word choice) quotes from narcissistic Looney TuneJim Acosta’s book The Enemy of the People, NewsBusters decided it was worth sharing two specific anecdotes that could stand on their own with one pertaining to the press corps in 2016 and the other about Fox News Channel’s John Roberts.
Movie criticism ain’t what it used to be. Film critics once served audiences by telling them if a movie was worth their hard-earned cash. Some critics still cling to that approach.Others use their forums to promote their ideological agendas. And, since the vast majority of film critics lean left, the results are predictably woke.
New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A carton of milk costs almost $13? Remember when that happened on June 12, 2015? No? That was the wildly-inaccurate version of 2015 predicted by ABC News 11 years ago this week. Appearing on Good Morning America in 2008, Bob Woodruff hyped Earth 2100, a special that pushed apocalyptic predictions of the then-futuristic 2015.
The Nation magazine's firebrand sports editor Dave Zirin has aggressively come to the defense of Megan Rapinoe, a lesbian member of the U.S. national women's soccer team who refused to sing the national anthem before a World Cup game Tuesday. He blasted right-wing "Christianists" who opposed her protest and slammed President Trump and Vice-president Pence for waging an anti-LGBT agenda.
In an op-ed from Tuesday's Wall Street Journal, former New York City prosecutor Linda Fairstein responded to the recent Netflix series on the Central Park Five, and accused its producer, Ava DuVernay, of fabricating words attributed to her character, played by Felicity Huffman, to portray her as a racist who was determined to convict the teens in the face of an alleged lack of evidence against them.
The programmers at HBO pride themselves as setting the tone for the rest of television, especially when it comes to the absence of taste. Every time HBO hits the bottom of the gutter, it finds a way to go deeper still. This time they are really headed into the gutter, and they know it. They have a new series starting June 16 about teenagers and sex and drugs called Euphoria, starring 22-year-old Zendaya, another former Disney Channel star trying to "grow up" in the eyes of Hollywood.
