The front of Friday’s New York Times featured campaign reporter Astead Herndon making a detour to Minnesota to name and shame local alleged Islamophobics. The headline: “Resettled Refugees Unsettle a Mostly White City -- Anti-Muslim Backlash as Somalis Start Over in Minnesota.” A front-page photo caption: “John Palmer reads conspiratorial websites at a restaurant each weekday in St. Cloud, Minn.” The online photo caption (and the story itself) gave the name of the restaurant, though the picture itself makes it relatively obvious as well.
During his opening monologue Thursday, Jimmy Kimmel trashed President Trump’s supporters as well as the “strict anti-choice laws” in southern states such as Alabama. After weighing in on President Trump’s re-election kickoff, Kimmel unveiled a public service announcement for the pro-abortion movement.
Yesterday, guest writer Lilianne Milgrom published an article for The Huffington Post describing her experience with the 19th century Gustave Courbet painting L’Origine du monde (The Origin of the World). The title of the article is “How An Encounter With The World’s Most Famous Vagina Painting Changed My Life.” This “vagina painting” is pornography. Full stop.
To the liberal media, besides President Trump and conservatives in general, there is no greater enemy than Fox News. Thus, the ensuing Hollywood takedown of its deceased founder, Roger Ailes, was an obvious move. Actor Russell Crowe appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Thursday night to promote his role as Ailes in the new series The Loudest Voice.
XBox has video game smack-talk in its crosshairs. In an interview with Kotaku’s Stephen Totilo, Xbox head Phil Spencer proclaimed that “Xbox Live is not a free speech platform.” He added that “It is not a place where anybody can come and say anything.” Spencer explained that his team is “working to ensure it’s a safe and inclusive environment.”
On Friday’s Today show, NBC weatherman and climate change activist Al Roker promoted a social media campaign to push the liberal agenda item, which included wearing a pin meant to represent the planet’s warming temperatures. He even had help from a local meteorologist at NBC’s Washington D.C. affiliate.
Ex-Republican and Washington Post columnist George Will appeared on The View Friday to promote his book and do the only thing right-leaning commentators are invited on television to do: bash President Trump and his supporters. Will got right to that, comparing “Trump Republicans” to cockroaches that had infested the party, to the friendly hosts. However, the tables turned quickly in the second half of the interview, as the liberal hosts attacked him for being against reparations.
Reddit is notorious for its overzealous moderators, but one wonders what William Shatner could have possibly done to get banned from a large group. The social media platform, known as the “front page of the internet,” is home to several thousand groups, in a beehive sort of fashion.
It’s not a surprise when the New York Times and Brian Stelter -- chief media correspondent for CNN –-- agree on something attacking President Trump. However, when the Wall Street Journal joins those other outlets, more people pay attention. The shared op-ed was written by Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger under the title “Accusing the New York Times of ‘Treason,’ Trump Crosses a Line” and slammed the President’s “increasingly extreme rhetorical attacks against the news media.”
When a sitting congresswoman sides with our enemy over our own country, is that not newsworthy? Apparently the networks didn’t think so. They ignored a tweet sent Thursday by Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar, where she blamed America for Iran shooting down one of our military’s drones. The networks, even cable news, were nowhere to be found Thursday evening or Friday morning.
The Washington Post issued a Planned Parenthood press release on Thursday, badly disguised as a "news article." Ariana Eunjung Cha's dispatch was loaded with PP boilerplate. The Trump team has a "gag rule" that hurts the "women's health care provider" and "endangers the health of millions of women." Millions of babies are not to be considered.
Madonna is out with her first album in 4 years, which means it’s time for her to wear something ridiculous, like a sequined eye patch, and say outrageous things for publicity, like that Jesus would agree with abortion.
In the TV age, there's never been a more dramatic defeat for the media than on Election Day 2016. Despite the press and their pollsters guaranteeing a win for Hillary Clinton, the unthinkable occurred when Donald Trump was elected President, which sent shock waves through the liberal media. Rather than learn from their errors and aproach the public with more humility, the media continue to say the nastiest things about President Trump and every voter who put him in office.
Now-ex-staffer Jackson Cosko was sentenced to four years in prison on Wednesday on five felony counts. And in over 24-hours since the sentencing, none of the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) covered it on their flagship morning and evening newscasts.
James Poniewozik, the New York Times’ chief TV critic, ran a fevered attack on three recent works -- two television shows and a play -- that render media mogul Rupert Murdoch and his outlets, including the Roger Ailes-led Fox News, in unflattering terms. The headline hid the inflammatory nature of the text: “Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes Gave Us Fox. These Shows Try to Make Sense of It All – ‘The Loudest Voice,’ ‘Ink’ and ‘Succession’ map out the influential world the two men created.” With the media and entertainment culture almost monopolized by the left save for Fox News, it’s Fox that somehow represents an ideological danger.
