Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden made one of the biggest gaffes of his 2020 campaign by letting it slip just how much he takes the African-American community for granted. Prominent African-American conservatives swiftly condemned his disgusting comments.
Apparently, when he's not violating basic journalistic ethics by interviewing and goofing around his brother, CNN's Chris Cuomo thinks a productive use of his show is to bring on conspiracy theorists who pretend to be whistleblowers. That is, so long as they don't blow the whistle on his brother Andrew.
Here’s the headline from Fox News: "MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski wants Trump blocked by Twitter: ‘A call is being set up.’" The Fox report begins by noting Mika was furious with a presidential tweet that took aim at hubby Joe Scarborough, her co-host on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. The story goes on to say:
Far-left documentary maker Michael Moore appeared on Friday’s edition of Real Time and not surprisingly, Moore and host Bill Maher spent their entire conversation spouting off left-wing talking points and conspiracy theories. Moore claimed that Republicans can only win elections by cheating and attributed President Trump’s animosity towards the state leadership in Michigan to racism and sexism. Both Moore and Maher shared the concern that Trump would refuse to leave office if he loses re-election and issued a call to action to “remove this mother***er from the White House.”
On his MSNBC show, Ali Velshi suggests that by deeming houses of worship "essential," thus qualifying them to reopen, President Trump could be in violation of "the separation of church and state."
Twitch tried to downplay concerns over an advisory board member who identifies as a deer and believes many gamers are “white supremacists.” Twitch, the platform for watching internet celebrities broadcast as they play video games, lit fire to a cultural powder keg in mid-May. The company appointed a transgender streamer who identifies as a deer among its “Safety Advisory Council.” Now it’s trying damage control.
On Thursday's Amanpour & Co. on PBS and CNN International, the show gave an unchallenged forum to liberal MSNBC contributor Anand Giridharadas -- who also hosts a show on Vice TV -- to promote a universal health care system and more regulations on businesses as he also derided the conservative "obsession" with "freedom" as being "paranoid," "infantile" and "childlike."
You know the left will never apologize or own up to any of their mistakes. Even if they and the whole world are aware of their painfully obvious #MeToo double standard, guess who they say actually hurt female victims? That’s right, conservatives and Trump voters.
Months ago, nobody would have imagined that there would be dozens of controversial articles written about an NFL quarterback getting a haircut and a beard trim, but here we are. On Monday, the Pittsburgh Steelers posted a video of quarterback “Big Ben” Roethlisberger throwing “legit NFL passes” to teammates Juju Smith-Schuster, James Connor, and Ryan Switzer, signaling that a long rehab from elbow surgery is nearly complete.
New York Times reporter Annie Karni followed President Trump on a tour of a Ford plant in Michigan and adopted a judgmental tone in her Friday story when Trump refused to wear a protective face mask in front of reporters. The paper also went after Mike Pence for his mask faux pas at the Mayo Clinic. But just how consistent has the New York Times and other print outlets been in moralizing over the social responsibility of wearing masks in public? A March 17 headline: “Here to Help; Cope With the Coronavirus: Masks, No. Groceries, Yes.”
President Barack Obama owned pop culture, sometimes literally. Remember how many stars pledged their allegiance to Obama during his first term? In return, President Obama acted like all of pop culture had his back, and he had a point. He slow jammed the news, shared his March Madness polls on every available TV outlet and even hawked his deeply flawed health care overhaul on Between Two Ferns. When he left office Obama signed up with Netflix to continue his pop culture mastery.
It was exactly eight years ago, Memorial Day weekend 2012, that MSNBC's Chris Hayes admitted he was “uncomfortable” calling fallen military members “heroes.” Appearing on his weekend show Up With Chris Hayes, the host attempted to explain why the word hero bothers him so.
You can't make this stuff up, folks. It's already been established that journalists in the media don't want to talk about the sex assault claims against Joe Biden. But one liberal columnist went farther, stating she would vote for former Vice President Joe Biden even if "he boiled babies and ate them.” According to an article posted by Charlie Nash of the Mediaite.com website on Thursday, Katha Pollitt of The Nation weekly magazine stated:
In case you didn’t get it yet, The Washington Post really hates Donald Trump. The paper on Tuesday published a Dana Milbank column that sarcastically proclaimed: “If Trump likes hydroxychloroquine, he’ll love camel urine.” The contents of the article made it perfectly clear that Milbank should seek some type of experimental drug that might cure Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The New York Post's Phil Mushnick is never afraid to tell it like it really is. Which makes him an outlier in sports media. This week, he tattoos NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as a pandering "Great White Father" who treats everyone like dopes, insults minorities and presides over the league's untreated illness: the criminality of its players. You won't see this kind of language on ESPN or in the Washington Post any time soon.
