New on August 21: CNN host Brian Stelter wondered if President Trump has an illness that makes him unfit for office: “Is the President of the United States a racist? Is he suffering from some kind of illness? Is he fit for office? And if he’s unfit, then what?”


Joss Whedon is a feminist. The director is a paragon of exquisitely progressive feminist sensibilities. He’s a right-thinking social justice warrior who values women as human beings, who believes in pay equality and probably likes to have a good cry.

That’s according to his fawning fans in the media, and Whedon himself, of course. To hear them tell it, the only thing that stands between Whedon and total feminist perfection is biology (and a sense of humor). Surprise! His ex-wife tells of a very different Joss Whedon.

 


In an article posted on Sunday at The Root, race-obsessed MSNBC contributor and The Root politics editor Jason Johnson devotes his column to rationalizing the verbal harassment aimed at two white high school girls who visited predominantly black Howard University as one wore a pro-Trump hat and the other a pro-Trump T-shirt. And, a couple days earlier, the MSNBC contributor devoted an article to describing the Trump administration as a "terrorism presidency," and tagged the President as a "terrorist sympathizer."


Just when you thought the media couldn’t get any more profane or irreverent in bashing the patriotic, it got worse. Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story trailer was just released on August 21 on Twitter, and it’s horrific. As promised, the new season, to be aired on FX, called “Cult,” addressed the political tensions between Trump and Hillary. The preview showed clowns putting on masks made in the likeness of Trump and Clinton, with Clinton wagging her finger at the screen. But of course, the anti-patriotic America-hating climax of it all was the blood that was poured profusely on the American flag.


Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued a statement today in response to NBC’s Chuck Todd again giving Mark Bray, a prominent voice in Antifa, a platform to promote his violent leftist agenda on Sunday’s Meet the Press. Todd is "guilty of aiding and abetting" extremist groups "which use terror to silence their opposition." 


On Sunday morning, NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday spent 14 minutes having a panel discussion with their “Code Switch” race-and-identity team, and they aired phone calls they recorded from listeners on “racially charged interactions that you’ve experienced.”

One complained of being assaulted with Islamophobic questions by “white Republican women” at the Texas State Capitol in Austin. Amal Ahmed is an intern at the leftist Texas Monthly. NPR made no attempt to find these “white Republican women” or confirm that this confirmation happened. The accusation was greeted as hard, cold fact. Asking about Islam is "racially charged."


This past weekend CNN drew more criticism for its left-wing bias after posting a profile on the violent left-wing group “Antifa,” that rather generously described the communist group as “seeking peace through violence.” Despite the obvious contradiction in terms, at least the headline noted the group’s violent motives (albeit in a really stupid way.) But that phrase was scrubbed just hours later by CNN in an apparent move to not offend members of the radical-left group.

 

During a discussion on Monday’s Morning Joe about the upcoming debate in Congress over raising the debt ceiling, host Joe Scarborough and his entire panel of liberal journalists agreed that Republican leaders would have to make a “full capitulation to Nancy Pelosi” in order to increase the nation’s borrowing limit and overcome opposition from conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus.


Unprofessional all around: The decision by the New York Times Sunday Book Review to publish a laudatory review of “Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America. At this point, the grievous flaws flushed out by critics on the left and right should have required that any review come with a warning label. Yet even months after criticism from outlets across the political spectrum, the Times still ran a review by Heather Boushey of Duke professor Nancy MacLean’s deceitful history of the free-market movement, Nobel-winning “public choice” economist James Buchanan, with the Koch Brothers standing in as modern-day Enemy No. 1 in the left’s fevered imaginings. The online headline: “How the Radical Right Played the Long Game and Won.”


Today is the day of the Great American Eclipse. Those along its path of totality will (if the clouds permit) see an amazing sight that will never be forgotten by those watching. Your humble correspondent knows this because he was once lucky enough to view a total solar eclipse. So who could possibly detract from this magnificent celestial event? Atlantic magazine which completely trivialized the eclipse by politicizing it by making it all about the racial makeup along its path.


Its funny how the media will never actually practice what they preach. Consider the minimum wage argument. The liberal media has repeatedly endorsed raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour or more. However, in the case of the Huffington Post, at least, theory doesn’t apply to reality.

 


Bill McMorris at the Washington Free Beacon reports on the latest in liberal hypocrisy. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was granted a CNN town hall without any Republican opponents on stage, but now they insist Speaker Paul Ryan is gaining an unfair advantage from the same arrangement on Monday night.


The second season of Showtime’s Dice opened Sunday, August 20th with the episode titled “It’s a Miserable Life.” As you might gather from the title, this episode is a parody of the classic movie, It’s a Wonderful Life. Comedian Andrew Dice Clay dreams of what life would be like for him and those near and dear to him if he had not created his stage persona The Diceman.


After almost a year hiatus, TNT’s The Last Ship returned for its fourth season, and it was certainly an exciting premiere. Just like the crew of USS Nathan James proves to be one of the few forces of good left in a depleted world, the show appears to be one of the few non-PC shows left on primetime. One of the biggest examples comes from the latest enemies they face who bring along some horrifyingly realistic methods.


The Associated Press, in covering the Islamic terrorist attacks in Barcelona and Cambril, Spain last week which which killed at least 14 people, twice noted that the attacks were carried out by an "Islamic terrorist cell." But not even the obvious facts about the attacks in Spain could move Reuters, arguably the world's leading wire service with obviously heavy influence in the U.S., to properly label the attacks.
