The liberal media accused President Trump of "dodging" and "evading" Jeannine Pirro's question as to whether he'd ever worked for Russia. Yesterday, Trump made a flat denial, saying, "I never worked for Russia." But that didn't stop MSNBC's John Heilemann on Morning Joe from ripping Trump, saying: "The fact that he said yesterday, I've never worked for Russia, just made you think of [unintelligble] our two previous Presidents embroiled in potential impeachments: Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon saying, Bill Clinton: I never had sexual relations with that woman. And Richard Nixon: I am not a crook. Turned out they were lying. Maybe Donald Trump is, too."
The Bryan Cranston/Kevin Hart movie The Upside won the weekend box office race, grossing about $20 million in ticket sales. Conservative columnist Jeff Jacoby reported Cranston was attacked from the Left for accepting the role of Phillip Lacasse, a billionaire left paralyzed after a paragliding accident. They think only paralyzed actors should play paralyzed people.
At the midpoint of Donald Trump’s first term, the establishment media’s obvious hostility shows no signs of relenting: 90% negative, vs. just 10% positive, matching the historically bad press we documented in 2017. But polls show this negative coverage has had no discernible impact on the public’s attitudes toward the President. Instead, the media's partisan approach has earned them high marks from Democrats, while alienating most Republicans.
Monday night, CBS's The Neighborhood returned from its winter hiatus pulling off its political correctness stunts once again. In this episode, titled “Welcome to Grover’s Birthday,” Tina (Tichina Arnold) and Calvin Butler (Cedric the Entertainer) are invited to Grover Johnson’s (Hank Greenspan) birthday party. Finding him a present proves to be challenging, however, when Gemma Johnson (Beth Behrs) gives certain outrageous stipulations.
On Monday, CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Van Jones falsely claimed that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer had not said they would never fund the President’s proposed border wall.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Monday insisted multiple times that President Trump was unable to deny that he was a Russian agent – even minutes after playing a clip of the President doing just that.
On Sunday’s Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd eagerly touted the latest Gallup poll showing 51% of Democrats and 26% of Americans overall identifying themselves as “liberal.” He excitedly told viewers that “Democrats are embracing the label” and that it was “no longer a dirty word” in politics.
Here’s an outside-the-box -- not to say crazy (if you’re even allowed to say crazy anymore) -- suggestion for the gang at the American Psychology Association: If you’re going to issue what Washington Post columnist Monica Hesse calls an “an indictment … of rigid, traditional masculinity,” you might want to talk to some “traditional” men first. That way, you won’t be blindsided when some folks think your research belongs under the scientific classification of “crap.”
The pro-life group Live Action was censored on YouTube a week before the March for Life. The streaming service took down a video exposing Planned Parenthood’s medical malpractices, citing it as “hate speech.” The streaming service took down a video exposing Planned Parenthood’s medical malpractices, citing it as “hate speech.” The video included someone posing as a pimp, asking a Planned Parenthood official if they reported minors who came in for abortions. The video is from 2011, and features Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe as the pimp.
It turns out there are still a few good-humored, politically-incorrect folks in Hollywood after all. Over the weekend, lefty-bashing street artist provocateurs publicly slammed HBO’s Bill Maher with a satirical billboard depicting him not as the thought leader he imagines himself to be, but as a rote purveyor of mainstream liberal propaganda. Specifically he was made fun of as being an “NPC.”
ABC’s Senior White House correspondent Jonathan Karl appeared on The View Monday to briefly discuss the two reports out in the Washington Post and New York Times which the media is seizing on as their new “evidence” that President Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 election. However the reports fall short of that and even Jon Karl had to admit that there was “zero evidence” of that to the hosts, much to their chagrin.
One of the most ignored passages in federal legislation came in the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967, insisting that public TV and radio should insure "objectively and balance in all programs of a controversial nature." Take the debate over transgenderism. That debate has two sides, and it's controversial, and yet on Saturday night, the PBS NewsHour aired almost 14 minutes of transgender advocacy without any rebuttal from an opposing point of view.
New on January 14, 2019: Picking up an an AP headline, “Trump dodges question on whether he has worked for Russia,” Mika Brzezinski opened Monday’s Morning Joe by highlighting how, when President Trump was asked, “have you ever worked for Russia?’” that “nowhere in his 354-word answer did he say the word no.”
The popular video game company behind World of Warcraft has been accused of using identity politics to hide its company scandals. Blizzard enjoyed huge success with franchises like Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo. Recently its business has taken a downturn and the company’s response has been to cater to liberal politics to generate positive publicity.
Our friends at Grabien spotted a solid example on Monday morning’s New Day of CNN bias as co-host Alisyn Camerota asserted that it’ll be “shame on” Democrats if they “can’t seize on” the President’s “waffling” during the government shutdown, adding that “this is their moment.” Yikes. It sounds like she was trying to be a coach giving her players a motivational pep talk before playing in a championship game against an arch rival.
