So in the middle of the media firestorm featuring President Trump and his battle with four progressive Democrat freshman members in the House calling themselves “The Squad” — a whirlwind of stories over racism and anti-Semitism — The Washington Post ran a big story on none other than George Takei.
The Washington Post on Friday couldn’t let old rivalries go, even in death. The paper’s obituary for long time Washington Times editor Wesley Pruden dripped with contempt for the “defiantly abrasive” conservative and his paper. In fact, the paper offered nicer coverage to Fidel Castro, hailing the dead dictator as a “romantic figure in olive-drab fatigues and combat boots.”
On her MSNBC show, Joy Reid puts it to black Republican strategist Lenny McAllister that since President Trump's policies, supposedly, hurt poor people, he has nothing to offer poor whites other than racism. When McAllister tries to raise school choice as an issue Republicans can support, and which helps African-Americans in particular, Reid shuts him down, changes the subject, and moves to another guest.
In the Trump era, journalists and hosts like to think they are truth tellers and that “democracy dies in darkness.” So it’s always good to look back, from time to time, at the Obama years. 2020 Debate moderator Rachel Maddow may despise the current Republican president, but she but she couldn’t restrain the gush when it came to Barack Obama. Four years ago this week, on July 14, 2015, Maddow hailed the achievement of “this American generation.”
Sony Corporation makes some of the best consumer electronics on the market. So why is the gadget maker letting their Sony Pictures Entertainment subsidiary (through its Columbia Pictures label) go the way of the rest of mainstream Hollywood and alienate a large swath of Americans with liberal social justice propaganda, which is even inserted in their entertainment, despite ending up performing poorly at the box office? The most recent example comes in a new film version of the 70’s TV classic Charlie’s Angels.
Today’s stars say the worst things possible about Republicans. The current Commander in Chief endures the nastiest rhetoric. The attacks typically involve the words “Hitler,” “Holocaust” or garden-variety “fascist.” President Donald Trump isn’t alone, though. Conservatives like Paul Ryan, Betsy DeVos and Justice Brett Kavanaugh also receive celebrity-based attacks beyond the pale of polite banter.
In the most liberal cities in America, the goal of maximum “inclusion” often requires an energetic scrubbing of language, especially on terms of gender. This week, the Berkeley City Council voted to amend its municipal code to achieve maximum sensitivity to the ever-increasing demands of the gender-smashing Left.
On his radio show Friday, Rush Limbaugh noted how CNN Inside Politics host John King found his mockery of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez distasteful. Rush says the congresswoman's name with an exaggerated Spanish accent for fun. But King inaccurately claimed Rush -- an "old white guy" -- was mocking how AOC had an accent when she talked -- but she has no Spanish accent. It's like how Rush would use a William F. Buckley impression when he would say the name of Rev. Jesse Jackson. Clearly, King doesn't listen to this show on a regular basis.
Thursday's Washington Post announced the Democrats attempt to rewrite recent history by deleting all tweets by their party members reflecting their feuds.
With the first week of the CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell in the books, it has showcased a CNN-like penchant for liberal bias and punditry masquerading as reporting. On Friday, the Trump coverage offered an embrace of anti-Semitic, corrupt, and far-left Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) by attacking the President for “demonizing” her to please his “anti-immigrant base.” To make matters worse, an additional segment skewed the President’s “go back” tweet with the help of at least two covert liberal activists.
It appears there is at least one ethnic group that is safe to mock on CNN. WASPs, namely White Anglo Saxon Protestants. CNN's Chris Cuomo mocked FNC host Tucker Carlson for what he perceived (not quite accurately) was Carlson's ethnic background to slam him during Cuomo Prime Time, Thursday.
ESPN President Jimmy Pitaro repeatedly insists, "We are not a political network." Really? You had everyone fooled this week when your network's TV and radio talk show host Dan Le Batard went off on President Donald Trump over the controversy surrounding the radical leftist Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
Two of the New York Times's most execrable tendencies came together in one awful story, set for print in Sunday’s edition. It combined the paper’s “Red Century” homages and other paeans to Communist regimes (who supposedly supported “women’s rights” despite being genocidal dictatorships) with the paper’s habit of gleefully puncturing what it considers lazy jingoistic pro-American mythology on days like Independence Day, or the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing. Times contributor Sophie Pinkham’s ludicrous “How the Soviets Won the Space Race for Equality -- The U.S.S.R. sent women and people of color to space years before the U.S.”
While NewsBusters has spent a copious amount of words this week on the liberal bias on television this week against the President for his criticism of the squad, a review of The Washington Post showed that it spilled more than its share of ink to defend the so-called “Squad” over the course of 16 print stories from Monday to Friday, ranging from supposedly straight news items to some that actually featured a slightly different font to delineate that change to analysis.
Wrapping up a series of reports on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, on Friday’s Today show, dour NBC correspondent Harry Smith used the opportunity to bemoan the lack of progress over the past five decades on liberal agenda items like climate change and economic inequality, among other “problems here at home.”
