Apple has no problem being woke, except when it might cost the company billions of dollars. Apple removed an app, called HKmap.live, from the app store after it received criticism from the Chinese government. People’s Daily, the Chinese state newspaper, wrote a piece on Oct. 8 criticizing Apple. Two days later, Apple pulled the app down, saying it “threatens public safety.” Quartz Investigative editor John Keefe reported that Apple also took down the Quartz app in China.
The recent Chinese/NBA debacle is a time of reckoning for folks who take athlete activism seriously. In the past, superstar Golden State Warrior captain Stephen Curry has been quite vocal about status quo lefty politics and his hatred for Donald Trump, but like his coward coach, Steve Kerr, the outspoken can’t star seem to find an answer when asked about actual oppression from the NBA’s business partner, the communist Chinese government.
The journalists on CBS This Morning last week brought on former Obama/Biden aide Susan Rice to defend Joe Biden. This week, however, they seemed annoyed that Rand Paul wouldn’t get on board the impeachment train. The co-hosts ignored the Republican Senator’s points about Joe and Hunter Biden, instead repeating the same question over and over.
The company behind “World of Warcraft” has been vilified by its fans and its employees have walked out in protest after it banned a professional gamer for supporting Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters.Activision Blizzard employees walked out of work on Tuesday at their campus in Irvine, California.

“Resign! Get Out!” The View co-host Joy Behar demanded of President Trump, to start Thursday’s show. Behar blasted Republicans, who were criticizing the President for pulling U.S. forces out of Syria in the fight against ISIS, but didn’t “stand up” to him over the border family separation policy. Her co-host Sunny Hostin also misled viewers by falsely claiming a Fox News poll showed 25% of Republicans now supported impeachment.
NBC’s Chuck Todd decreed a “National nightmare is upon us.” CNN host Don Lemon and former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather proclaimed that Donald Trump has “Out-Nixoned Nixon.” And when former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld claimed Trump’s “treason” was punishable by death, an MSNBC contributor’s response was to casually inquire “Have you looked into this?...How do you see this proceeding?” The following is just a sampling of the most egregious outbursts from the liberal media and celebrities from the past few weeks.
Reporting live from the Ukrainian capital of Kiev on Thursday for ABC’s Good Morning America, correspondent Tom Llamas proudly touted how he repeatedly grilled the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, on whether President Trump was “corrupt.”
New York Times reporter Thomas Kaplan played damage control for Democratic candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren in “Warren Details Account Of Losing Teaching Job Because of a Pregnancy.” It turns out Warren has told two different stories over the years about leaving her teaching position. Previously she had claimed she left because of insufficient educational qualifications. But later she claimed she was fired for being pregnant. But the story’s headlines gave no hint of a possible contradiction in Warren’s account of her “firing” over the years. The Times instead feverishly tried to protect her reputation, even talking on Twitter of Warren “refuting a conservative news site's challenge of her account” when she did no such thing.
The NBA sure talks a good game about free speech rights ― out of one side of its collective mouth. Amidst China's seething anger over Houston general manager Daryl Morey expressing support for freedom in Hong Kong, NBA commissioner Adam Silver mildly defended the American's free speech rights. But on Tuesday night, two fans were ejected from an NBA exhibition game in Philadelphia for peacefully protesting against China. Talk about inconsistency.
Thursday all three networks reported on President Trump telling reporters Wednesday that the whistleblower is not only a registered Democrat, but actually worked for one of his 2020 rivals. Trump was referencing a report that came out Tuesday and that ABC and CBS had effectively ignored until they were forced to address it on Thursday’s morning shows. While each network touted the whistleblower’s lawyers denials, CBS was the only network to concede that their own reporting corroborated the whistleblower did indeed work for a 2020 rival. ABC, on the other hand, flatly denied this information, claiming this was just a “smear campaign” from the President.
When Netflix posted a video clip of a cartoon child explaining pansexuality, probably the last thing they expected was to be attacked by the super woke Twitter scolds. And yet that’s exactly what happened, to the point of the Big Mouth creators being forced to apologize to "trans, pan, and bi communities" for the scene being problematic and exclusionary.
On Tuesday night, PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff performed the latest in a decades-long parade of puffball interviews with Hillary Clinton, going all the way back to the 1992 campaign. The only way Hillary gets a negative question is when the anchor reads a Trump tweet. But that's only because the questioner believes everything Trump tweets just sounds preposterous.
The third season of Big Mouth was released on October 4 on Netflix. The middle school kids are approaching graduation and anything and everything goes in the pursuit of understanding their maturing bodies as they go through puberty in this twisted adult-oriented series about horny kids.
ABC’s sitcom Single Parents poked fun at feminism last season but in the episode October 9 “Derek Sucks,” they were far more PC, with characters embarrassingly asserting their feminist bonafides.
The Ryan Murphy-produced American Horror Story has returned for a new season titled 1984, and so far, it’s been pretty tame compared to earlier seasons. Sure, the FX series still contains the usual amount of gore, sex, and vapid characters, but unlike Cult, there’s nocontinuous onslaught of outrageous liberal bias.
