Yahoo! Sports and the NHL's Nashville Predators are not sticking to sports or political neutrality. The pro hockey team has publicly endorsed a Democrat candidate for mayor in Nashville, and that clapping sound you hear comes from Yahoo! Sports' Jay Busbee, who endorsed the team for doing so—while other media are criticizing the team's partisanship.
Following a 60 Minutes segment that portrayed Google as a monopolistic power, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said he hopes the U.S. Department of Justice “takes a serious look” at the power wielded by tech giants.
While interviewing Republican Congressional Candidate Lea Marquez Peterson on Sunday’s edition of KasieDC, MSNBC host Kasie Hunt tried to bait her into calling the President a racist by bringing up his comments referring to MS-13 gang members as “animals”: “The President earlier this week referred to some immigrants and drug dealers as well as animals, not as people. Do you think that rhetoric is racist?”
Worth adding to the well-deserved praise accorded New Journalism pioneer Tom Wolfe since his death last week is an incident when he was a cub reporter still in his 20s who stood up to -- and prevailed -- against an ambitious senator elected president only two years later. Wolfe was working as a general-assignment reporter in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1958 after finishing his dissertation in American studies at Yale when Senator John F. Kennedy came to the small city an hour west of Boston and spoke before two dozen of Springfield business owners and the mayor.
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.”
A year of failure, suspension and demotion is all it takes to win a journalist of the year award——if you're Jemele Hill and you very publicly called the Republican president of the United States a "white supremacist." For this and other less-than-stellar "accomplishments" in 2017, Hill is the winner of the Journalist of the Year award in 2018 for the National Association of Black Journalists.
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.
