As the Central American caravans continue to roll through Mexico towards the U.S., some Univision hosts are acting like cheerleaders, including evening news anchor Jorge Ramos and morning show host Alan Tacher.
If you’ve watched The History Channel, you know that “ancient aliens” probably built the Pyramids and Stonehenge and maybe the Hanging Gardens of Babylon (and why wouldn’t little green men have little green thumbs?)
New York Times reporter Sydney Ember traveled to Columbus, Ohio to celebrate the re-election victory of liberal Democrat (and presidential candidate?) Sen. Sherrod Brown on Page One of Friday’s edition: “Senator With Ohio Sensibility May Be Democrats’ 2020 Star.” The online headline: “Sherrod Brown: Rumpled, Unvarnished and Just Maybe a Candidate for President.” Ember has a history of folksy, sometimes embarrassing, profiles of Democrats.
Under most circumstances, a sitting United States Senator and potential presidential candidate comparing a federal law enforcement agency to the Ku Klux Klan would be major national news. However, after California Democrat and 2020 hopeful Kamala Harris did exactly that during a Senate hearing on Thursday, the broadcast networks decided it wasn’t worth a single second of coverage.
CBS journalist Major Garrett on Friday pointedly declared that Donald Trump wasn’t the first president to battle with a journalistic outlet. He highlighted how the Obama administration “demonized” Fox News and went to “war” with the outlet, his previous employer. Garrett also noted that journalists didn’t seem to care back then: “I will tell you, back at that time, I didn’t feel the collaborative and collegial sense of we’re all in this together.”
During Thursday’s edition of The View, the panel weighed in on CNN's lawsuit against the Trump administration for revoking White House Correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass.” The panel rushed to Acosta’s defense, in addition to spouting the usual talking points about how Sarah Sanders is a liar.
During her fawning one-hour show devoted to promoting Michelle Obama’s new memoir on Thursday, daytime host and Democratic activist Ellen DeGeneres put together a montage of liberal journalists showering the former First Lady with adoring coverage throughout Barack Obama’s administration. DeGeneres told Mrs. Obama that the purpose of the sycophantic video was to celebrate her “amazing impact.”
If you didn’t get what was significant about Thursday, November 15th, then maybe you just don’t understand that everyday of the calendar year is a solemnity celebrating diversity for diversity’s sake. Thursday’s festivities included Latina (ahem LatinX) actress Eva Longoria trashing President Trump and the white patriarchy for “attacking” her as both a Latino and as a woman.
Some speculate that 007 might get an ethnic makeover.
Throughout the week, CNN has been airing promos for a Saturday night reairing of its two-hour work of liberal propaganda falling in love head over heels for the Obama administration that first aired two days before Donald Trump’s Inauguration on January 18. The End: Inside the Last Days of the Obama White House was a two-hour documentary of sorts without a narrator, but instead carried by behind-the-scenes monologues from various White House officials.
Friday on The View, the hosts slammed conservatives as racists that were “obsessed” with the media’s favorite Democrat socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. While they brought up the topic because of a stupid tweet from a conservative writer which mocked Cortez for her clothing choices, they used that tweet to accuse the entire conservative movement of having a racist agenda and obsession with the new congresswoman.
Just a couple weeks ago the media were warning about “startling new research” by Princeton and Scripps scientists that indicated faster global warming, but it turns out that panic was overblown. The researchers issued corrections to the paper after a climate skeptic pointed out a math error in the study.
CNN’s Brian Stelter reassured Americans on Friday that the integrity of the nation’s institutions had been saved.
CNN’s excited reaction on Friday to a judge’s ruling giving Jim Acosta back his press pass continued as Newsroom host Jim Sciutto compared the U.S. to the oppressive China (where he served under the Obama administration). Also, co-host Poppy Harlow treated Acosta like a conquering hero: “I have always been proud to call Jim Acosta a colleague and a friend... This is not about him. This is about press freedom and he will go back to work today.”
A recent gaffe at YouTube has proved that human censors can be just as bad as robots at distinguishing between hate speech and satire. This past Wednesday in November 2018, Youtube had to undo the removal of a satire video dating back to the second World War.
