The New York Times co-hosted a “Cities for Tomorrow” conference in New Orleans that promised a wide-ranging discussion including “cultural and sports figures.” One result was a Thursday story about the National Basketball Association congratulating itself on its “woke” politics and the Times cheering them on, while mocking the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick, in “N.B.A. Voices -- A league that lets players speak out.” But the paper’s embrace of the NBA is pretty hypocritical, given its part treatment of athletes who make conservative gestures. Reporter Talya Minsberg celebrated the left-wing concept of “wokeness” at length, while lamenting the NFL's treatment of Colin Kaepernick.
During Thursday’s edition of The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham highlighted the White House’s announcement of a “bold plan to change the lives in America of some of our poorest citizens, those who live in the most distressed and sometimes the most dangerous neighborhoods,” describing the announcement as “a scene you likely did not see on one of your local or national newscasts” because they did not bother to cover it.
Imagine looking at the Google Images search engine results for yourself and see that among the first ten images to pop up is you dressed as a Nazi even though you never wore such garb. You might know how Dilbert creator Scott Adams felt when he saw such photoshopped images of himself appear as images #6 and #8 (as of this writing) in Google Images.
On Don Lemon's show CNN Tonight on Wednesday, liberal analyst Joan Walsh slammed First Lady Melania Trump for "whining" in a Sean Hannity interview about how the media mangles history on this presidency. On Thursday's The Five on Fox News, Greg Gutfeld let Walsh have it: "It's very interesting that feminists are all about leaning in -- #MeToo, you go, girl -- until you disagree with them. And then they're -- they're as chauvinistic and sexist as the next guy."
ABC started off Friday’s Good Morning America playing clips from their exclusive interview with President Trump’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen, who was sentenced to three years in prison this week for lying to Congress about Trump’s business dealings with Russia and for directing hush money payments to Trump’s alleged former mistresses Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, before the 2016 election.
Despite his dishonest reputation, Cohen was treated like a hero by ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos, who praised him for his “honesty” while inviting him to bash the president.
On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski apologizes for having called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, on Wednesday's show, a "butt boy." But whereas she apologizes "especially to the LGBT community and to my colleagues," Brzezinski doesn't apologize . . . to Mike Pompeo.
On Monday night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers on NBC, his staff writer Jenny Hagel uncorked a commentary attacking Pope Francis as a fountain of “hate speech.” In a new book-length interview titled The Strength of a Vocation, the Pope said the Catholic Church shouldn’t be scandalized by sexually active (and activist) homosexual priests. It’s not exactly a new stand for Popes, but this one was supposed to be "cool."
How shallow are liberal journalists? Ted Cruz's new beard looks really good and Esquire managing editor Ben Boskovich is upset about that. See, he finds it easier to hate the clean-shaven Cruz and now that the Texas senator is looking better in his opinion, that has thrown Boskovich for a loop.
In an exclusive report out Thursday, the Associated Press detailed attempts by the Iran-backed group Charming Kitten to hack the personal e-mail accounts of dozens of U.S. officials and citizens in retaliation for President Trump’s pull out of the nuclear deal. And as has become their custom, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) buried their heads in the sand and ignored the news of dirty deeds by Iran.
MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews may have a show entitled Hardball and screech “let’s play hardball” at the top of each show, but it rarely squares with reality. Wednesday was no different as Hawaii Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard appeared for a friendly chat bashing the Saudis but was not pressed on her coziness with the murderous Assad regime in Syria.
Liberal journalists have been throwing wild accusations at Facebook for enabling “fake news,” foreign interference, and “conspiracy theories.” Now even its own fact checkers are upset.
Fox News media reporter/anchor Howard Kurtz broke the scoop that the Trump White House cancelled the annual Christmas party with the press. This shouldn't be that much of a surprise, in that the Trumps haven't attended the White House Correspondents Association dinner, and after the court fights over the brief suspension of CNN yeller Jim Acosta's press pass, it was not going to be a chummy get-together.
During Tuesday’s Erin Burnett OutFront, the eponymous host engaged in a discussion about the feisty Oval Office meeting between President Trump, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi; specifically focusing on Pelosi describing the border wall as a “manhood issue” for President Trump. Guest April Ryan basically called President Trump a sexist for his treatment of Pelosi in the Oval Office, in addition to effectively smearing him and all other supporters of a border wall as racists.
On Thursday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell and Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt were gleeful as they discussed Nancy Pelosi striking a deal with “rebel” Democrats to ensure her position as Speaker of the House. They both agreed that a contentious Oval Office meeting with President Trump had given Pelosi a boost during one of her “best weeks in politics.”
Unfortunately, actress Alyssa Milano is back in the news again … again, and this time her activism seems to have taken on a new more insidious form. Parents be warned, the #metoo champion and physical embodiment of Brett Kavanaugh hatred has just signed a deal for a new line of children’s books that promote a healthy dose of progressive activism.
