You know it's bad for the NBA when the media, who normally applaud the huge cultural icon for championing its social justice warriors, is getting slammed by the liberal media. On Sunday, Mitch Albom of the Detroit Free Press took the NBA apart for acquiescing to China's iron-fisted tyrants. While at it, he also characterized the normally untouchable SJW mouthpiece LeBron James as a money-talks hypocrite.
CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter brought on "Legendary Journalist" Sam Donaldson to unload the usual liberal mantras on Sunday. That's how CNN tagged Sam -- "Legendary Journalist" -- not only on screen, but even in the CNN transcript. Donaldson raised eyebrows much smaller than his by claiming that Trump fans are "fixated" on narrowing the country: "They want to return this country to the white Christian country that they believe it should be again. They don't want the diversity."
It has been nearly two years since the last episode of USA’s Mr. Robot and I can’t think of a single person who suffered from it. After all, we’re still bombarded with shows that denounce capitalism and Donald Trump. The last thing we need is a product of NBCUniversal telling us that corporations are bad. Sadly, the latest episode of the series does just that by tying corporations and various right-wing figures to a global terrorist conspiracy.
Last week, Family Guy amusingly poked fun at woke society’s transgender shibboleths. This week, Seth MacFarland did made fun of PC pieties again in the episode “Absolutely Babulous,” on October 13. The episode riffs on participation trophies when Stewie wins a medal at his preschool’s “Toddler Games.”
The LGBT lobby is one of the most powerful political and cultural forces in the United States today. They have massive influence in Hollywood. Therefore, it is practically impossible to turn on your television any given night of the week without seeing this powerful lobby’s influence over a show. This is true regardless of how “family-friendly” or “faith-oriented” the show may be.
On Friday's MTP Daily on MSNBC, host Chuck Todd offered a pompous commentary on how he was refusing to show what he thought was the worst of President Trump's Thursday night rally in Minneapolis. Todd made it sound like it was beyond the pale to criticize Rep. Ilhan Omar, or Hunter Biden. Andrew Klavan tweeted "I for one feel so safe now that@chucktodd is protecting me from hearing the news."
The latest New York Times Sunday Review was graced by Justin Gillis, who served as chief environmental reporter for the paper until late 2017 and is now a contributing opinion writer free to spout in even more partisan and hysterical tones about the “troglodytes” and dangerous deniers who don’t see impending climate catastrophe: “Our Climate Future Has Arrived.” The online headline deck was a call to vote Democrat: “Fire, Floods and Power Outages: Our Climate Future Has Arrived -- The most urgent imperative now is to turn our fear and frustration into votes.” The tone was confidently alarmist: "Now we suffer the consequences."
More than 30 years after President Ronald Reagan left office, MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude on Sunday was still blaming him for modern economic problems during a discussion of the Democratic presidential race. On Up with David Gura, as Glaude gushed over Elizabeth Warren's performance in the last debate, he even claimed that Democrats have been "complicit" along with Republicans in implementing Reaganesque economic policy.
Fresh off of touting the simplicity of the Democratic impeachment narrative against President Trump earlier that morning, NBC political director Chuck Todd took to Meet the Press and pushed former defense secretary, General James Mattis to attack the President. The retired General refused to acquiesce to Todd’s prodding and declared it was “the worst time, I think, for military people to step out like that.”
At the onset of the Democratic impeachment inquiry into President Trump, the liberal media emphasized that Congress could “read between the lines” to move forward with the process and find the conclusion they want.. On NBC’s Sunday Today, political director and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd praised how simple their narrative against Trump was this time around, but fretted the process to impeach the President could take too long.
NPR has a series called "Off Script," where regular voters question the presidential candidates. On Wednesday's Morning Edition, they aired audio of an El Paso school teacher suggesting to Beto O' Rourke that his proposal to take away "assault weapons" from Americans through a "mandatory buyback" program won't pass constitutional muster, and will help the Republicans underline how Democrats oppose the Second Amendment.
In the past couple of weeks, New York Times reporters Michael Shear and Julie Hirschfeld Davis have made TV appearances to promote their book Border Wars: Inside Trump's Assault on Immigration. In appearances on CNN and MSNBC, anchors have underlined revelations that President Trump suggested the extreme step of government agents shooting immigrants in the legs -- often leaving out the notion that it would be in response to immigrants throwing large rocks...and of course, often leaving out the word "illegal" to characterize the immigrants.
Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan has spent the Trump era insisting on how Donald Trump is at odds with what she calls the "reality-based press." But what about when the facts line up against candidates Margaret likes? Well, then facts are no longer fair. "Alternative facts" are produced.
Not surprisingly, the panel on Friday’s edition of Real Time weighed in on the impeachment inquiry that has sucked up all of the oxygen on Capitol Hill. Host Bill Maher suggested that Republicans’ behavior throughout the impeachment inquiry indicates that they “don’t believe in democracy anymore.” In addition, the panel took aim at Fox News; slamming the primetime hosts as “a**-lickers” and accusing the network of spinning out “a totally different version of reality.”
Newsweek reporter Rosie McCall offered a conspiracy theory as to how a 16-year-old environmental activist somehow failed to win the Nobel Peace Prize this year: “Greta Thunberg Snubbed for Nobel Peace Prize by Committee Run by Norway, One of the World's Biggest Oil and Natural Gas Exporters.” This new theory comes courtesy of a magazine fresh off breaking the news that opening tanning salons in urban neighborhoods were a plot to give gay men skin cancer, or something: "for many, Norway's decision to give the award to a climate activist would have been an important symbolic gesture."
