In a desperate attempt to revive her relevancy following the cancelation of her E! late-night show, actress Busy Phillips joins the Hollywood bandwagon to protest recent pro-life bills. According to an announcement by the ACLU, Phillips and the ACLU have teamed up “to fight against the passage of restrictive abortion bans in states around the country.” This comes two weeks after Phillips used her own abortion story to condemn the Georgia “heartbeat” law.
Inside Politics host John King “didn’t have the words” to describe how Trump defended himself after Speaker Nancy Pelosi questioned the President’s mental state and suggested that he needed an intervention the day before in a press conference.
Breaking news…Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, has apparently run out of original material; as he has compared President Trump to a dictator yet again. The only thing that has gotten more tiring is the Comedy Central host’s repeated attacks on the Catholic Church and Christianity as a whole.
Washington Post media blogger Erik Wemple tried to comb through the wreckage of Michael Avenatti, liberal cable news sensation-turned-potential crook, and asked CNN and MSNBC for comment. Brian Stelter acknowledged he was wrong to take Avenatti seriously as a presidential contender: "I own that comment." Rachel Maddow defended her "coverage" of the sleazy lawyer despite the fact that "Avenatti turns out to have been a shrieking bag of cats when it came to his business practices,"
Every year, Memorial Day reminds us of the strength and honor of the men and women who lost their lives in battle. That attitude clearly influenced Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis’ thoughts as he vowed earlier this week to never let the American flag come down under his watch amid his current legal battle.
Actor Bryan Cranston joined Friday’s CBS This Morning to promote his leading role as the Howard Beale in the legendary movie-turned-play Network and offered some astute, unbiased observations about the need to take in a variety of news sources, recognizing that news producers make judgment calls (often using their own biases) on “what’s news,” and the industry’s commercialization.
You have heard it time and time again from the left: “Republicans have thrown away their principles to worship Trump.” The truth is that politician worship has a home on each side of the political aisle, and there is no group of people who worship Democratic politicians more than the “firefighters of the truth” in the mainstream media.
Cable news hosts spent Friday morning running damage control for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after the President tweeted a video mashup of her verbally stumbling at a press conference. Curiously, CNN and MSNBC parroted the language used by Pelosi’s own office in their efforts to discredit the video: “doctored.”
Do as I say, not as I do. The censorious ideas pushed by popular Twitter #Resistance twins have come back to bite them. Activists Ed and Brian Krassenstein were permanently suspended from Twitter May 23. The Daily Beast reported the liberal Twitter stars had allegedly been banned for “[breaking] the site’s rules about operating fake accounts and purchasing fake interactions with their accounts.”
Acting chops aside, Anne Hathaway has always looked like the type of person whose superpowers include the ability to give one heck of a condescending lecture. As it turns out, the white woman is chiding other “white women” for fighting for the lives of unborn children of any color. On social media, the Ocean's 8 actress slammed the “complicity of white women” in producing the recent pro-life Alabama legislation signed by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey.
Even CNBC's more liberal anchor wasn't thrilled with newly announced plans from Democratic candidates to tax Wall Street transactions. Reporter Ylan Mui told Squawk Box viewers on May 23 about plans from liberal candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Pete Buttigieg (D-IN) to tax Wall Street to pay for expensive things like "free" college.
On Friday, NBC’s Today show aired an exclusive interview with Khaled Al-Batsh, one of the leaders of the Palestinian terrorist organization Islamic Jihad. During that exchange, Al-Batsh was provided with a media megaphone to smear President Trump as a “thug” and denounce the “Israeli occupation” of the Gaza Strip.
Could it be CNN's evaporating audience that has one of its hosts taking one of its infinite swipes at the Fox News behemoth that has so badly thrashed CNN in the ratings? On Friday's New Day, co-host John Berman quipped that the Fox Business Network might be "on the payroll" of President Trump, and might have prepared an edited mashup of Nancy Pelosi stammering her way through remarks during her weekly press conference on Thursday.
During primaries like the one currently underway for the 2020 presidential campaign, Democrats are fond of claiming that, unlike “rich Republicans,” they “stand up for the little guy.” That concept became much more difficult to promote on Thursday after a report showed how lucrative of a legal career Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has had, even though N.Y. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quickly rushed to her defense and even took aim at a --- wait for it --- female Washington Post reporter's salary.
CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter submitted to an interview on Vox's podcast The Ezra Klein Show, which was meant to be a sober liberal salon, but then it got a little testy. Klein must have surprised Stelter when Stelter tried to claim only Fox tries to make its viewers "pissed" as a business model. Klein wasn't having that at all.
