Trans people are angry, and this time it’s not with biology. Popular millenial social media app Snapchat has found itself in a bit of hot water over its recent photo filter updates that allow users to change their gender appearance in a frame for giggles. However some earnest trans individuals don’t find it funny at all.
UPDATE, 8:25 p.m. Eastern: In the hours since this article was first published, NBC Nightly News answered the call and stepped to the plate in covering the brutal violence against at least 12 people and the allegations of murder against illegal immigrant Bill Chemirmir. The one-minute-and-31-second story opened the newscast's B-block with correspondent Gabe Gutierrez mentioning the suspect's immigration status roughly 38 seconds into the story.
These are the times that try feminists’ souls. Pro-life laws in places like Alabama and Georgia threaten to produce an epidemic of live, healthy births in red states in the not-too-distant future. All good progressives must rally to the abortion uber alles flag. Now is not time to be seen as a summer sister or sunshine patriarchy smasher, not while famous comrades deprive themselves of cheap, non-union production labor or forswear carnal gratification.
Washington Post blogger Greg Sargent is promoting the latest video by serial impeachment ad-maker Tom Steyer under the headline "Democrats are badly blowing it against Trump. A brutal new TV ad shows how." The ad avoids the central finding of the Mueller Report of no Trump-Russia collusion and pretends that there was obstruction of justice, which the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General did not find, for a crime that did not happen.
On Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch says that Elizabeth Warren doesn't have the "stuff" to beat President Trump. He suggests that Warren is too strident to be "digestible." Poor Donny was very clearly afraid of running afoul of Mika Brzezinski in particular and feminists and identity-politics fans in general. He knew the feminists think women are somehow punished by the liberal media, and lamented that this is where we still are in 2019.
The recent pro-life bills passed in Alabama and Georgia appear to have inspired a new iteration of liberal women proudly sharing their abortion stories. Similar to #ShoutYourAbortion, actress Busy Philipps, who revealed her own abortion as a way to rail against Georgia's Heartbeat Bill, asked women to use the hashtag #YouKnowMe to announce their abortions and "end the shame."
While the number of candidates in the Democrats’ 2020 presidential primary continues to grow, one of the most controversial issues liberals face is whether or not to participate in a town hall conducted by the Fox News Channel. However, California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell claimed on Wednesday that the network -- which dominates the ratings among cable news channels -- had rejected his request to take part in another town hall on FNC.
The passage of abortion laws in Georgia and Alabama have caused a flurry of media reactions, including many misleading ones. At least 16 articles claimed or suggested women would be jailed for having abortions, even though the laws’ text is available for all to read, and specifies women will not face prosecution.
In the May 16 finale of For the People, "A Choice Between Two Things," the public defenders’ office and prosecutors take on voter intimidation perpetrated by “a pro-business advocacy group.” The episode opens on Election Day, with defense attorney Jay Simmons (Wesam Keesh) waiting in line to vote with his parents, naturalized citizens from Syria.
As the saying goes, “all politics is local.” That sentiment seemed to seep into CBS News’s Thursday reports on New York Mayor Bill de Blasio throwing his hat into the 2020 race. In both flagship morning and evening newscasts, anchors and reporters alike mocked the Democratic candidate. During CBS This Morning, co-host John Dickerson quipped: “Bill de Blasio is the answer to what question that isn’t being [asked]?”
CNN claims to be "Facts First," but showboat White House correspondent Jim Acosta mangled President Trump's statement on asylum claims on Thursday. During the speech, Acosta tweeted: "Trump in Rose Garden speech paints asylum seekers with broad brush accusing them of misleading immigration authorities at border: 'These are frivolous claims.'" That's not accurate.
CBS All-Access has officially turned The Twilight Zone from an iconic morality series into just another Hollywood vehicle for virtue signaling and social justice pandering. The reboot whined about toxic masculinity, warned about cops killing black people, and mocked Trump through a kid president. With this latest episode on illegal immigration, the once original show might as well be an MSNBC segment.
The lead editorial in Thursday’s New York Times, “How to Help Protect Abortion Rights,” crossed over from laying out a pro-choice stand and into full-blown pro-abortion, Planned Parenthood-promoting activism. But don’t despair, the Times is there to help women repressed in those troglodyte states with a handy checklist of abortion-rights, er, “reproductive-rights advocates” about groups offering assistance.The editorial page doesn’t think much of pro-lifers who exercise their right to protest abortion clinics. The solution: Become a Planned Parenthood volunteer!
A NewsBusters study out Thursday afternoon showed that the broadcast networks loved slapping the “extreme” label on Alabama’s pro-life law, and the same for the heartbeat bills being enacted around the country, while completely ignoring New York’s extreme abortion protections. Well, NBC Nightly News broke the drought later that evening by completely embracing New York’s barbarism.
Opening Wednesday's CNN Tonight, the horribly biased Don Lemon pondered: “Why this President loves to surround himself with strong men, with dictators?” Naturally, Lemon proceeded to criticize Trump for meeting with dictators, apparently forgetting that President Obama attended a baseball game with Cuban dictator Raul Castro while administration officials had numerous meetings with Iranians. Lemon went further by saying that President Trump wants to “follow their lead” by acting like a king.
