Orson Bean’s remarkable life is one for the ages … and soon the small screen, too. Newsweek reports a limited series based on Bean’s career in and out of show business is in the works. The show’s creative team is looking for a home for the project, but that’s not the only news tied to the late film and TV star.
Last year, Alabama passed into law a ban on abortion, except when the mother's life is in danger. Democratic state Representative Rolanda Hollis wasn't too happy about her state seeking to protect life, even though the law was blocked by a federal judge. In response, she's introduced a bill requiring men to pay for their own vasectomy a month before turning 50, or after their third child, whichever comes first.
Washington journalists are rejoicing that celebrity glitz and glamour are returning to their self-celebrating soiree, the so-called “White House Correspondents Dinner.” They announced longtime “Saturday Night Live” player Kenan Thompson will host the April event, and Muslim comedian Hasan Minhaj will perform the Republican-bashing “comedy” routine. The biggest joke of this dinner is the media pretending it's a "nonpartisan event."
On her Friday afternoon show, MSNBC host Katy Tur was again beating the climate alarmism drum as she devoted a segment to fretting over the fact that Bernie Sanders is the only presidential candidate advocating all 10 action items called for by the left-wing environmental group, Center for Biological Diversity Action Fund.
We’re less than two months into 2020, and some Democratic presidential hopefuls have already “gone ugly,” especially in the behind-the-scenes conflict between former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former President Barack Obama. A 30-second advertisement implying that Bloomberg and Obama are “close allies” has drawn the ire of officials in “Obamaworld” who describe the campaign as an “incredible turnoff.”
On Thursday morning, Fox News again displayed the kind of good journalism that is so often lacking on the more liberal networks, as Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade asked former Barack Obama administration DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson about the cage-like structures that his administration built to hold illegal immigrants, including children. Johnson defended the facilities as being necessary to detain a large number of illegals quickly while keeping children and young women safe from adult detainees who were not related to them.
On Thursday evening's Amanpour & Company show, CNN/PBS host Christiane Amanpour presided over a discussion of the Democratic presidential race which descended into environmental alarmism as she spoke with Telemundo environmental reporter Vanessa Hauc, who helped moderate the most recent Democratic debate, and CNN host Van Jones. As loaded terms like "climate crisis" and "existential issue," were used to hype the issue, Jones became so hyperbolic as to complain that fossil fuel companies spent millions to make Republicans into global warming "deniers," thus derailing alarmists in "the most crucial decade in the history of human civilization and our planet."
Even for the low standards of The New York Times, this is shocking. The so-called “paper of record” on Friday gave print space so a Taliban leader — an unrepentant terrorist — could lecture the United States. In a piece for the February 21 print paper entitled, “What We, the Taliban, Want,” Sirajuddin Haqqani spewed propaganda: “We did not choose our war with the foreign coalition led by the United States. We were forced to defend ourselves.”
Was Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s inability to identify Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador a limited Latino-interest issue or a moment that warranted broader coverage as a campaign-defining “deer-in-the-headlights” gaffe? The liberal media, hamstrung by soft bigotry and blinded by double standards.
About 300 Oracle employees have staged a virtual walkout over their founder and chairman’s support for President Donald Trump. Oracle employees were outraged when they found out that Big Tech billionaire Larry Ellison was hosting a pro-Trump fundraiser at his estate. On Thursday, Feb. 20 a protest was launched in response to a petition signed by thousands of employees. The protest, as Protocol summarized, “asked employees to log off and spend the rest of the day contributing to causes such as immigration, gender equity or the environment.
CBS contributor and former Univision anchor Maria Elena Salinas once again displayed her penchant for portraying immigration as the top priority for the eternally discriminated (in her view) Latino voters in the United States, bolstering her claim with the results of a Univision and Latino Decisions poll.
It's shocking that Tim Tebow and the owner of the Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs did not get buried by the media for their recent appearance at the Kansans For Life Valentine's Day banquet. It's also amazing that Tebow didn't get slammed by media for saying he'd rather be known for saving babies from abortion than as a Super Bowl-winning quarterback. And that Lamar Hunt Jr., owner of the Chiefs, served as master of ceremonies at the event without an onslaught from pro-aborts.
On Friday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle talked to CNBC contributor Dan Nathan about how the booming economy may factor into the 2020 presidential race. Without any substantiation, Nathan wildly speculated that there could be another “global financial crisis” which would provide something “Dems can run on” in the fall.
CNN’s Inside Politics continued on Friday the latest liberal media crusade to do not only Russia’s bidding by sowing dissent, but argue with a rhetorical wink and nod that Donald Trump is an illegitimate President. Most amusingly, host John King and his fellow panelists claimed that “no one” has been “saying” in the wake of Thursday night’s New York Times article “that Trump was colluding with Russia again.”
In the aftermath of the fiery Democratic debate in Las Vegas, the New York Times queened Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s return to form, but provided a chillier reception to Sen. Amy Klobuchar. Friday’s piece, “Facing a Potential Last Stand, Warren Unleashes Rhetorical Howitzers,” played Warren’s attacks on debate newbie Michael Bloomberg dramatically, with her as vanquishing hero. But the paper insulted "largely white" editorial boards for daring to endorse the supposedly "centrist" Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
