Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's Amanpour and Company on PBS to discuss former President George H.W. Bush's legacy, The New Yorker editor David Remnick condemned Bush's use of convicted murderer Willie Horton in the 1988 presidential campaign as "racist." Host Christiane Amanpour also suggested that Bush had run a "racist" campaign ad.
Apparently MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson has forgotten the concept of federalism. At least that’s the way in appeared on Thursday, when she suggested that the United States Senate should somehow intervene in a dispute between Republicans and Democrats over changes to the state government in Wisconsin.
The liberal media may be outraged by Facebook’s opposition research on George Soros, but the company’s board of directors is not. They defended Facebook’s decision as “entirely appropriate” following the billionaire’s attacks on the social media giant, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Threats from the United States to regulate Facebook are not the worst thing the company faces. In Europe, the social media platform is under attack as well. A British lawmaker, Damian Collins, published Facebook emails which show the company knowingly violating both U.S. Federal Trade Commission rules and gave data away to companies like Netflix and Lyft. Serving the international audience, where business strategies and capitalism aren’t as valued, comes with its own problems: Facebook now faces hostile European lawmakers who are seeking to regulate the company.
In light of Hollywood’s rabid progressive and anti-Christian agenda, it’s refreshing — well almost shocking even — to find a heartfelt and genuine Christmas message being shared by one of the industry’s leading men. Jurassic World star Chris Pratt brought another much-needed Christian and pro-life message to audiences, claiming that the love he has for his son helps him understand “the capacity for our Father in heaven to love us.”
The Golden Globes are deceptively influential. While they are presided over by only a handful of journalists from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, they precede the nominations for the Oscars and thus put the Press Association in a position to whisper names into the ears of Academy members.
New York Times reporter Peter Baker marked the ceremony for former President George H. W. Bush on the front of Thursday’s edition, but his main focus was on attacking one of the attendants: President Trump, through biased interpretation of body language and some light mind-reading. At a moment that promised bipartisan respect, the Times wants to deepen the very divisions it pretends to deplore. Baker condescended: "[Historian John Meacham] also essentially explained Mr. Bush’s thousand-lights phrase to Mr. Trump."
Chris Cuomo is the voice of reason on CNN. No, really. It’s true. Or at least it was true on Wednesday night as Cuomo called out colleague Don Lemon as “petty and small.” This rather shocking exchange came after Lemon declared he wouldn’t shake Trump’s hand, were he in the position the Obamas were during Wednesday’s funeral of George H.W. Bush.
Dan Rather, the longtime CBS anchor keeps showing he has no self-awareness, whatsoever. The veteran, disgraced journalist took to Twitter during George H.W. Bush’s funeral Wednesday to offer his thoughts, dripping with condescension for our current president, and completely obtuse in light of his own behavior towards both Bushes when they were in office.
Lena Dunham’s back in the news -- never glad tidings for civilization. The creator of HBO’s Girls has issued her latest mea culpa, apologizing for defending a male colleague from an accusation of rape last year. Dunham wrote an open letter to actress Aurora Perrineau in The Hollywood Reporter, seeking forgiveness for doubting Perrineau’s allegations against Girls writer/producer Murray Miller
On CNN's New Day, after former Bush 43 aide Scott Jennings praises President Trump's handling of the passing of George H.W. Bush, CNN's John Avlon says: "I don't think you want to give out too many medals for not screwing up a presidential funeral. The President was on best behavior this week, but that's a fairly low bar."
The Washington Post loves to present President Trump as boisterously snide...and quite obviously, they can't imagine anyone would apply that description to them. On Wednesday night, the Post website was boasting at least three articles ripping into Trump's behavior at the funeral, or his bad optics. This isn't a "newspaper." It's an Insult Aggregator.
Healthy quarterbacks in the nation's capital are dropping like flies, and Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden told reporters Monday the team actually discussed Colin Kaepernick. But after the team passed (again) on the renegade free agent and signed "Journeyman" Josh Johnson (see photo), ESPN First Take panelists discussed why the radical kneeler missed out on another potential job in the NFL. Damien Woody and Max Kellerman started off with surface-level Kaepernick blather, but Stephen A. Smith soon raised the stakes.
In 24-hours, French President Emmanuel Macron went from postponing his widely hated carbon tax on fuel and utilities to completely abandoning it. It’s yet another loss for liberal climate change policies that oppress and strip money from hard-working people. Despite this momentous defeat, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were dead silent when Macron went from suspending the measure on Tuesday and abandoning it on Wednesday.
While Al Sharpton is certainly no stranger to controversy, his latest ploy has raised eyebrows across the political spectrum. Before the liberal activist steps down as president of the National Action Network next year, he has apparently found a new way to make money off the charity he founded in 1991: selling his “life story rights for a 10-year period” for more than half a million dollars.
