After being arrested on felony domestic violence charges last week, there was a new chapter in the saga of Michael Avenatti’s alleged abuse late Monday night when news broke that New York actress Mareli Miniutti had filed a domestic violence restraining order against him. Both CNN and MSNBC couldn’t be bothered to mention the development on air that night.
On Monday night, The Neighborhood on CBS had a special racist Thanksgiving episode.
The camp set up for the Central American caravan in Tijuana was on “lockdown” on Sunday as Mexican residents of the city attempted to storm the area in protest. The unwelcome arrival of the caravan had put tremendous pressure on Tijuana’s resources resulting in many locals taking to the streets in opposition. It was a serious and dangerous development that went completely unreported during ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News Monday evening.
When you hear television anchors and correspondents bandy about the label “anti-immigrant” in their reporting, that’s a telltale sign you are probably hearing brazenly dishonest news.
First flagged down by our friends at the Daily Wire, CBS News chief Whtie House correspondent Major Garrett did his best to not directly condemn CNN counterpart Jim Acosta while speaking Friday to WMAL host and Washington Times editor Larry O'Connor. Nonetheless, Garrett noted that that “a standard of conduct and expected behavior” exists that is agreed upon by White House correspondents which, based on his answers, would place Acosta outside that.
On Monday afternoon, the White House released a series of brief but simple guidelines for journalists in light of CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s carnival-barking at not only press conferences with the President, but a pattern of bombastic, self-centered behavior that resulted in a ten-day legal standoff that began on November 7.
New on November 19: At the top of a Friday night discussion about why many white women support President Donald Trump, CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers declared their preference for Trump over Hillary Clinton means, de facto, they are “racist.” Referring to Trump, Powers contended: “If you support somebody who does racist things, that makes you racist.”
Conservatives are having a difficult time trusting that social media companies will protect the First Amendment. In a new poll released by Axios, the general sentiment towards big tech companies such as Google and Facebook was negative
Imagine saying “Playboy has lost its moral compass?” Well, based on the evidence, it has. A year ago Playboy Magazine featured it’s first “transgender playmate.” And just this past month it featured DC Universe superhero actor Ezra Miller spreading his legs in fishnet tights and high-heels for the camera. You have to wonder if Hef is spinning in his grave.
The press isn’t arguing any more: Silicon Valley is allied with Democrats. And The New York Times is worried that alliance is crumbling.
Silicon Valley tech companies donate fortunes to left-wing politicians. Could this be why Democrats are so hesitant to regulate them? Last week, New York Times revealed that Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) pressured Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) to back off of investigating the company: "Back off, he told Mr. Warner, according to a Facebook employee briefed on Mr. Schumer’s intervention. Mr. Warner should be looking for ways to work with Facebook, Mr. Schumer advised, not harm it. Facebook lobbyists were kept abreast of Mr. Schumer’s efforts to protect the company, according to the employee."
Singer-actress Bette Midler can belt things out. Not just her schmaltzy show tunes, but her Greatest Hits: her fiery, unhinged hits on conservatives, Trump, and pretty much any person who is not a member of the show biz left. She’s usually uninformed, always strident and pretty hateful. Here are five hits that, in the past year, have led people (even liberals) to question her sanity, chide her on Twitter, or simply roll their eyes.
Along with national affairs analyst John Heilemann, MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-hosts/lovers Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough opened Monday’s show by continuing to celebrate the midterm election victories by Democrats, suggesting the President is “Baghdad Bob-ing again” and engaging in “political dingbattery” when he talked about GOP successes on Election Night.
While condemning the President’s visit this past weekend to California to witness the devastating wildfires himself and his comment on the topic, BBC World News America anchor Katty Kay argued on Monday’s Morning Joe that climate change “is probably the most pressing issue of our time.”
After then-candidate Donald Trump issued an off-the-cup hypothetical about not respecting the election results, the New York Times hysterically compared him to a dictator. So it’s striking how accepting the Times is of liberal Democrats who actually do fail to accept the disappointing results elections. On the front page of Monday’s New York Times, political reporters Glenn Thrush and Jeremy Peters fixed the blame solely on Republicans and "conservative-dominated legislatures...stoking paranoia over stolen elections."
