Liberal "fact checkers" are very sensitive about late-term abortion. On Wednesday, PolitiFact rated President Trump as "False" because he said Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam "stated that he would even allow a newborn baby to come out into the world... then talk to the mother and talk to the father and then execute the baby." The sensitive word there is "execute." Northam didn't say "execute." Liberals use vaguer, gentler words for baby death, like perhaps a "terminated pregnancy."
Raining down hard on Colin Kaepernick and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, the New York Post's Phil Mushnick is bucking the trend by media liberals to patronize the radical social justice warrior who "gamed" the NFL leader. Mushnick stiff-arms Goodell and Kaepernick for essentially spoiling the pro football experience for so many Americans.
Just as he did in 2016, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is once again badly tripping up in his interviews on Univision. In his latest interview with the top U.S. Spanish-language media outlet, the Vermont senator's evident soft spot for disastrous socialist leaders and governments in Latin America left aghast both the network’s viewers and anchors.
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle Friday morning, analyst Jason Johnson, Politics Editor for The Root, blasted the Trump administration for refusing to allow ISIS terrorist Hoda Muthana from returning to the U.S. after she left to join the violent death cult. The left-wing contributor even argued it was “anti-American” to deny her re-entry to the nation she declared war against.
One word that is not often used to describe the mainstream media these days is “objective.” This concept indicates that a reporter or journalist should not have any hidden connections with people or products being discussed. That philosophy took a major hit on Thursday, when NBC News correspondent Stephanie Ruhle was accused of promoting Under Armour shoes without letting viewers know she has “close ties” with the sports apparel company’s CEO, Kevin Plank.
YouTube has taken decisive action to combat “any content — including comments — that endangers minors,” according to The Washington Post. YouTube said it has deleted hundreds of channels and millions of comments for objectionable content. A YouTube spokesperson informed The Verge that the firm “took immediate action by deleting accounts and channels, reporting illegal activity to authorities, and disabling violative comments.”
It’s Oscar Week when the media celebrates the best that Hollywood/Silicon Valley produce -- tragedy and comedy. But seldom have they produced as much humorously tragic content as they have in their attempts to suppress the story of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell.
The Oscars are this weekend and while we’re not insisting that you care to tune in — we’d refrain too if we could — maybe it’d be somewhat important to spare you the mystery and inform you that this year’s awards is serving up another seven-layer slice of progressive obsession.
The New York Times’ got rather overdefensive in Thursday’s “In Attack, Trump Aims ‘Enemy of the People’ Directly at The Times.” The paper stretched its complaint against Trump’s concerning slogan to cast blame on him for every worrisome development experienced by a Times (or Washington Post) journalist anywhere: "They have added up to a rough few days for freedom of the press, a once-sacrosanct American notion that has been under sustained assault since Mr. Trump made fiery denunciations of journalists -- and the rallying cry “Fake news!”-- into hallmarks of his campaign and presidency."
Suddenly, the journalists at MSNBC are concerned with executive overreach. Liberal reporters didn’t care much during the Obama years, but now that Donald Trump has declared a national emergency, MSNBC is concerned. Reporting on news that Democrats will try and stop it, correspondent Garrett Haake goaded, “How many Republicans come out and get on this resolution? After as much Republicans have talked about executive overreach in the Obama presidency, how will they react now? When this thing moves over to the Senate, that's the same question we're seeing one more time there.”
Some of the motivating forces behind the 2020 elections could prove to be sinister for the First Amendment and media outlets the left hates. The founder of Data for Progress, a far-left think tank that endorses socialism and the Green New Deal, wants the next Democrat president to silence Fox News. He shared a study done by two Columbia University researchers that claimed judges who watched Fox delivered harsher criminal sentences based on racial motivation.
Network television show writers are nothing if not predictable. It seems it is impossible to write an episode of primetime programming without reverting to far right stereotypes in order to portray white men as violent, hateful bigots.
Despite the fact that there has been no resolution to any of the scandals surrounding the three Democrats who sit atop Virginia's government, ABC, CBS and NBC have essentially dropped the stories from their flagship newscasts. From February 1-7, ABC, CBS, and NBC combined for 116 minutes and 19 seconds and then 96 minutes and 12 seconds from February 8-14, but since then, there have only been eight minutes and eight seconds devoted to the Virginia officeholders between February 15's CBS This Morning and February 19's Good Morning America.
A key embarrassment of the Jussie Smollett hoax was the Robin Roberts interview on Good Morning America, and now anonymous ABC staffers are defending the debacle to BuzzFeed News.“There’s not really a spirit of regret about the Jussie interview,” insisted one GMA source. “And no one feels that Robin got duped. Taken advantage of, yes, but not duped.”
Is it not common for men to razz each other a bit now and then? Though it would be hard to convince Kareem Abdul-Jabbar of this, a little good-natured ribbing never harmed anybody. Abdul-Jabbar took offense to Captain Lee Rosbach, of the Bravo reality show Below Deck, for razzing his crew members in a recent program. Abdul-Jabbar extrapolated that Rosbach's remarks represent Hollywood's "myth of manliness" and the gender-bias equivalent of white people appearing in blackface.
