The third season of the American Crime Story cable television series dealing with the impeachment of the 42nd U.S. President will not air on FX until after the 2020 election, John Landgraf -- the head of the pay cable television channel -- stated on Thursday, January 9. While the given reason for the delay is that creator-producer Ryan Murphy has a “busy schedule” due to the three-season renewal of his FX American Horror Story anthology series, Landgraf noted that the current media environment is “toxic” on issues related to the scandal involving Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.
On Thursday, only NBC’s Today show provided a full report on the landmark trade deal President Trump signed with China on Wednesday. However, that coverage included a shocking claim that U.S. trade policy pursued by the Trump administration actually caused American farmers to commit suicide.
On the front page of Tuesday’s New York Times, political reporter Jeremy Peters cynically spun President Trump’s so-far successful showdown with the terror-supporting regime in Iran in “Trump 2020? Move on Iran Gives Pause – Questioning 2016 Vow to End Wars.” Peters wrote from Dubuque, Iowa, where all the campaign reporters are hanging out in anticipation of the caucuses. The online headline: “Trump’s Iran Strategy May Cost Him in 2020 Election.” Perhaps, but not based on this very selective report of public opinion. Peters used Trump’s 2016 intervention-skeptical campaign rhetoric to condemn him today (not that the media credited him with his stand at the time):
In a meeting of "Hope and Change" and the Swoosh, Nike announced a $5 million donation to an athletic facility at the Obama Foundation's planned presidential center in Chicago. Nike's latest progressive effort aims to help create a place to inspire, learn and reflect in honor of the former president who "brought his love of hoops from the South Side of Chicago to the White House."
If it wasn’t scary enough being monitored by random strangers, a former Microsoft contractor reportedly claimed some private calls could have been accessed by the Chinese government! An anonymous former Microsoft contractor came forward and alleged that Microsoft’s grading program to transcribe and vet users’ audio “ran for years with no security measures.” The audio was sourced both from Skype conversations and Cortana, Microsoft’s voice assistant equivalent of Apple’s Siri. The anonymous contractor also explained how working in any territory ruled by the Chinese regime is hazardous in itself, stating that “Living in China, working in China, you’re already compromised with nearly everything."
It’s no question MSNBC has been begging for President Donald Trump’s impeachment. So, how does MSNBC legal analyst Jill Wine-Banks handle the issue of impeachment? By giving money to a Democratic Party House member who would later vote for impeachment.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says that the families, children, and grandchildren of defenders of President Trump will be punished by history. Vengeance will be visited on the descendants of the pro-Trump sinners.
It’s always been popular to hate on Christians and religion on television it seems. ABC’s Stumptown gives us the latest version by delivering a story about a terrible Christian woman doing “the Lord’s work” by separating Native American families. At this point, is there any other type of Christian on TV?
The series premiere of Paramount’s 68 Whiskey on January 15, “Buckley’s Goat,” introduces viewers to the boozed up, foul-mouthed (they drop uncensored f-bombs 25 times in 60 minutes), overly sexed (the very first scene involves soldiers getting it on) Army medics stationed in Afghanistan.
Here at MRC Culture, we increasinlyg have to type the word "throuple" into the keyboard when writing about television. Polyamory is the emergent radical sexual revolutionary idea that is popping up on everything from cable shows to police dramas. We can now add network "television comedy" to the growing list of Hollywood junk pushing this idea.
Every now and then some truth comes out during a network series that destroys a narrative long promoted by the left. Unborn babies are often referred to by the pro-abortion left as "clumps of cells," but this episode showed that ultrasounds reveal the humanity of the unborn child.
While House Democrats were busy sanctimoniously walking to the other side of the Capitol to deliver the article of impeachment to the Senate, President Trump was in the White House signing phase one of a trade deal with China, officially beginning the wind-down of the years-long trade war. Despite this positive economic step that would bring relief to many Americans, CBS and NBC saw fit to downplay it and criticize the President’s praise for the deal.
From the pilot alone, it’s clear that Freeform’s Party of Five reboot supports illegal immigration. From the third episode, it’s clear that the show also supports pretty much every other crime to cover for illegal immigration. At this point, it’s a wonder if any liberals support border laws at all.
After Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s master plan to delay the Senate impeachment trial ended in failure after a month, House Democrats finally got up and walked the articles of impeachment against President Trump over to the Senate for trial. It was that transfer of documents that had the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) all giddy with anticipation during their Wednesday evening newscasts.
Wednesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom ended with host Brooke Baldwin and correspondent Jason Carroll serving as chief fear mongerers on behalf of “Governor Blackface” Ralph Northam (D-VA), parroting fears that Monday’s Lobby Day in support of the Second Amendment could bring violence a la Charlottesville. Baldwin also repeatedly fixated on the event and the possibility of violence falling on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, so there was that angle that one could assume was a hint of racism.
