The 2018 Miss USA pageant aired May 21 on Fox. Hosted by the husband and wife team of Nick and Vanessa Lachey, got political by delving into feminism, gender inequality, and #MeToo.
With the CW’s Supergirl having gone more than a month without a major issue revealing its liberal bias, I was hoping we could finally get at least half a season focused on things like plot and character. Unfortunately, the latest episode breaks that trend and returns to another hour of basic SJW propaganda. I guess America is so racist that we needed not one, but two episodes about it.
The sparks flew on Fox News Channel Monday night as host Tucker Carlson went toe-to-toe with California Congressman Eric Swalwell (D) on everything from the Russia investigation to gun control. And when it came to the later, Carlson grilled the Congressman on his gun confiscation plan and called him out on the hypocrisy of allowing himself and the rest Congress to be protected with certain guns while the average American citizen would be forced to give theirs up.
CNN’s Erin Burnett conducted a sacchaine interview with Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf on Monday’s Erin Burnett OutFront, sympathizing with Schaaf for being “picked on” by the President. Schaaf made headlines in March when she posted a Tweet warning illegal aliens about an upcoming ICE raid in the Bay Area. To her credit, Burnett framed Schaaf’s actions as such while introducing her; however, she went on permit the Mayor to repeatedly twist the facts while offering virtually no pushback in response.
The school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas wasn’t carried out with the media’s favorite weapon to mischaracterize and demonize (the AR-15), but this was only a minor speed bump for those looking to take away Americans' rights. During Monday’s Hardball on MSNBC, host Chris Matthews brought on anti-gun activist Nicole Hockley to join him in whining about those who respected the Second Amendment. During the segment, Matthews absurdly claimed that since NRA had hired Oliver North to be their president, the organization was somehow “immune to justice.”
May 2018 has been extraordinary for its high volume of establishment press corrections and erroneous tweet deletions. One particular correction at the New York Times stands out from the rest of that crowded field. In that correction, published on May 16 (for the May 17 print edition), the Times admitted that reporter Gardiner Harris committed four significant errors in an attack piece posing as a hard-news story about Mark Dubowitz, the chief executive of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies think tank.
Former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, have signed an extensive contract to create new movies and television shows for Netflix. That agreement potentially includes scripted and unscripted programs, documentaries and feature films. Of course, the Monday announcement came as no surprise to anyone familiar with the connection between the pay-cable channel and the former Democratic occupants of the White House, along with Obama Administration officials and entertainment executives who have supported the family in the past.
The New York Times on Monday lamented the slim likelihood that the shooting tragedy in Texas on Friday would result in significant gun control legislation in the conservative state. Times writers Manny Fernandez, Jack Healy and Dave Montgomery offered a front page story contrasting the results in swing state Florida with Texas. The headline complained: “Will School Shooting Spur Anti-Gun Furor? In Texas Not Likely.”
On her 12:00 p.m. ET hour show on Monday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell admitted that she was a “fan girl” of the CBS drama Madam Secretary, a show in which a Hillary Clinton-like Secretary of State crusades for one liberal cause after another. Mitchell noted that her love of the show has only increased since the “downturn” of the State Department under President Trump.
Entertainment media’s obsession with first female presidents continues to spiral out of control. Netflix’s new film, First Ladies, starring Jennifer Aniston and Tig Notaro, focuses on the rise of the “first female president” who also happens to be lesbian.
Jon Meacham apparently isn't paying attention to the liberal message (for now) to NOT mention that if the Democrats win back the House this November, they will impeach President Trump. Perhaps historian and failed Newsweek editor Meacham is so eager for that impeachment that he just couldn't hold back on Monday's Morning Joe.
Yelp and TripAdvisor have teamed up against Google to fight back against what Yelp calls an “unlawful advantage” given to Google+’s search results over its competitors when it comes to local reviews.
On his Sunday show on CNN, as Fareed Zakaria presided over a segment discussing the week's news on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only the left and the far left were included as liberal New York Times columnist Tom Friedman slammed President Donald Trump's Israel policy as "diplomatic pornography," and Palestinian activist Hanan Ashrawi claimed that all of Jerusalem is "occupied" and tried to downplay the culpability of Hamas in the violent Gaza protests and attacks on the Israeli border fence.
Monday's edition of The View carried a segment promoting Sen. John McCain's new book and an HBO documentary For Whom the Bells Tolls. Once again, Whoopi Goldberg tried to pose as a guardian of decency, when she asked McCain ten years ago if she had to be afraid of slavery coming back if he were elected. The segment also avoided HBO's history of McCain films (doesn't anyone remember the McCain/Palin-trashing Game Change flick?)
On Sunday’s installment of Showtime’s The Circus, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon was profiled and he lashed out at President Trump as a “racist” and insinuated that Trump’s criticism of him was racially-based. Thankfully, the show also profiled our friends at the Daily Caller and, to the show’s credit, the interviews allowed for Daily Caller personality to offer some excellent points about liberal media bias.
