Charlton Heston must be rolling over in his grave. The new Apes film cast is monkeying around with political statements. Set to be released on July 14, War for the Planet of the Apes is the third installment in the rebooted franchise. While some denied any intentional parallels to the Trump era, cast members and The Hollywood Reporter said the film eerily mirrors present day politics.
At Fox Business Network on Monday, Stuart Varney interviewed Zane Tankel, the Chairman and CEO of Apple-Metro Inc., the New York City metro area Applebee's franchisee. While discussing the impact of minimum-wage laws on his business, he effectively brought up another law, the one in economics known as supply and demand, informing Varney that "We have 1,000 less servers this time this year than we had this time last year."
On Tuesday, NPR's All Things Considered channeled its inner millenial by airing a full segment on smartphone apps for singles in the U.K. who are opposed to Brexit. Lauren Frayer played up how "many British singles...have started posting how they voted — 'leave' or 'remain' — on their dating profiles." She also spotlighted the "Better Together Dating" app, which apparently "bills itself as Tinder for the 48 percent. That's the proportion of British voters who chose 'remain' in last year's EU referendum."
Hillary Clinton was, in the words of Donald Trump, the original “Nasty Woman.” And she’s apparently proud of it.
The former Democratic presidential candidate used a picture to publicize her support of Samantha Bee and her “Nasty Woman” products. The photo, shared on Clinton’s twitter page, shows Clinton holding the ‘Nasty Woman’ shirt up to herself as she smiles into the camera.
One of President Trump’s lawyers, Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice, made his rounds on the morning shows Wednesday to defend Trump from the media’s accusations that he must’ve known about his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer in June of 2016. On ABC’s Good Morning America, anchor George Stephanopoulos repeatedly tried to get Sekulow to admit Trump was complicit and would have to admit to that under oath, using media reports from anonymous sources as his basis of inquiry.
The Labor Department reported a “better than expected” jobs report on July 7, showing 222,000 jobs added in the month of June. However, ABC World News and CBS Evening News barely acknowledged the news spending just 12 seconds each just mentioning the number of new jobs and 4.4 percent unemployment rate. ABC reported June marked 81 straight months of job growth.
On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of how to pay for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall, co-host Alisyn Camerota seemed taken aback that Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King suggested shifting money from the food stamp program to help pay for the wall. Camerota fretted: "You want to take food from people that are s -- the people who are on the lowest rung in terms of the nation's safety net and their children -- in terms of food stamps, you're happy to take -- you're willing to take money from them to build the 1.6 or to give the 1.6 billion to the border wall?"
Left-wing media recently erupted after revelations of Congress’ allegedly “sexist” dress code that forbids women to wear sleeveless dresses. Journalists and celebrities tweeted their outrage. And, now, comedian Chelsea Handler is comparing the dress code to “Abu Dhabi.”
On Tuesday on MSNBC, as he was being interviewed by members of the press, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham's audio suddenly and completely went away. After discussing a reported meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian "lawyer" named Natalia Veselnitskaya, Graham said: "I’m sure they (Trump officials) met with a lot of people during the campaign. I’m sure the Clinton campaign met with —" ... well, we don't know what he said after that. That's because the network's Kasie Hunt, clearly without warning the cameraperson involved, decided that she didn't want to hear about Mrs. Clinton, and that she instead needed to run over and speak with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
The media fawning over Barack Obama never ends, despite his having left office six months ago. Lefty news sites such as CNN, Bustle, Refinery 29 and The Huffington Post continued that fawning with a simple selfie photo of Obama with a cute baby at the Anchorage International Airport.
Are the Trump campaign's contacts with Russians "unprecedented," as Democrats charge? Liberal journalists would like everyone to forget the Clintons and the Democratic National Committee engaged in a blatant strategy to solicit illegal foreign contributions from Asian sources before the 1996 election. Their contacts included Liu Chaoying, daughter of the senior commander of Red China’s “People’s Liberation Army,” who met with President Clinton.
The American political world was rocked Tuesday when Donald Trump Jr. released a series of e-mails that showed he was approached by and met with, someone who appeared to have ties to Russia and claimed to have damaging information about Hillary Clinton. The shocking revelation dominated the evening news coverage of the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC). Of the total time spent on news (minus commercials and teasers), the e-mails commanded 54 percent of the total coverage on the three networks.
The latest season of Netflix’s Canadian teen drama, Degrassi: Next Class, perfectly captures the left’s social agenda for 2017. The show’s 4th season, which was released July 7, features a character to represent every social issue liberals obsess over. More than half of the characters on the show are queer and/or non-monogamous, and the liberal propaganda in the show ranges from Syrian refugees (one of whom is a lesbian), to a gender non-conforming girl, to lesbian prom queens, to three students participating in a polyamorous relationship.
Showing disdain for middle America and people not onboard with the liberal media complex, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews mocked red states like Texas and Utah on Thursday plus anyone not concerned about the Trump-Russia collusion news, suggesting they’d “be going crazy and lighting bonfires at federal buildings” if this involved a Clinton presidency.
Washington Post media blogger Erik Wemple’s posts about the Fox News Channel’s morning show keep getting wilder and wilder. What are they putting in his Cream of Wheat? On June 1, Wemple wrote a piece headlined “Fox & Friends is a planetary threat.” On July 11, he’s back with “Kill Fox & Friends before it’s too late.” His last line was “Left to its own devices, Fox & Friends could do far more damage, unless it’s killed.”
