Schoolkids around the world are cutting class Friday for the “climate,” and the New York Times is very excited (so much for the value of education). The editorial page was especially hyped up, issuing a call online for protest sign pictures: “Are You Going to the Climate Protest? We Want to See Your Sign! -- We want to share young people’s illustrations and videos with the world.” Thursday’s lead National story featured the 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, accompanied by a huge promotional photo of Thunberg's testimony to Congress. “She Didn’t Mince Words: ‘Listen to the Scientists.’”
The media is hyping the Global Climate Strike, especially in the United States, where 800 marches were planned. Tech companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and Wikipedia have large bodies of employees who are going on strike. But are these people in touch with what Americans care about? Google Trends tweeted “In the last few weeks, we’ve been exploring how people search for the environment.
How many people have to join before something becomes a “movement?” If the cause is climate change, the answer is fewer people than there are in Homer, Alaska: population 5,697. Even though there were only a little over a thousand signatories that day, USA Today hyped a new “climate change movement,” called “No Future, No Children” Sept. 19. Eighteen-year old Canadian Emma Lim has pledged not to have children until her government “takes serious action” on climate.
As The New York Times goes into damage control mode following their erroneous Justice Kavanagh hit piece, former Times executive editor Jill Abramson appeared on Fox’s Outnumbered Overtime on Wednesday in an attempt to excuse the paper for leaving key exculpatory evidence out of the initial article. Abramson tried to claim "no one has challenged the basic accuracy of the story that they published." Yes, they have!
It’s no surprise that people in the “mainstream media” in news and entertainment are tilted so far to the left that they very likely could not be much more liberal. Nevertheless, in a ridiculous effort to bring more conservative viewers to NBC’s Saturday Night Live program, producer Lorne Michaels saw his clumsy strategy blow up in his face after it was discovered newly hired “conservative” comic Shane Gillis had used his podcast to openly attack homosexuals, Asians and other minority groups.
On Morning Joe, MSNBC "Republican" Elise Jordan, commenting on Rudy Giuliani's conversation with Chris Cuomo on CNN regarding possible contacts between the Trump administration and Ukraine, literally called for Giuliani to be sent off to die: "drunk grandpa just needs to be pulled off to hospice."
The three major broadcast networks spent time promoting radical environmental activism on Friday’s morning broadcasts. Teens and children conducted a global “strike” this morning against climate change ahead of a United Nations summit on the subject. ABC, NBC and CBS couldn’t get enough of the youths' liberal activism, gushing about the kids as young as 9 years old walking out of school to “lead the way” in the political movement.
This week, 250 news organizations around the world are colluding to produce global warming propaganda in the days surrounding the UN climate summit on September 23. Variety magazine is one of the publications involved and they reported on Hollywood’s efforts to combat global warming, wondering if the entertainment industry is doing enough to sway public opinion.
The American press fell head over heels for the lefty Canadian PM when he first hit the scene in 2016. He got the pop star treatment with network anchors catching “Justin Fever” as they swooned over the “super hunky” “dreamy” and “adorable” politician they dubbed “Canada’s Obama.” The following is just a few of examples of the liberal media’s infatuation with Trudeau, as culled from the MRC’s archives.
In Thursday’s installment of The Hill’s “Rising,” chief Washington correspondent Saagar Enjeti lit up New York Times reporters Kate Kelly and Robin Pogrebin for their smear campaign against Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and grilled them on their obfuscation of exculpatory facts.
Liberals seem to be so desperate to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020 that they are now digging up Roy Cohn from the grave to slam him despite the fact that the famed attorney has been dead for 33 years. This latest effort in the form of a documentary called, "Where's My Roy Cohn?" prominently features Trump, a fact that was hyped over and over again by Politico senior staff writer Michael Kruse in the September 19 Politico Magazine.
Recently, firearms manufacture Colt declared that they will be suspending consumer sales of their classic AR-15 rifle citing “significant” competition in the modern sporting rifle market. Of course, once the liberal media learned of this, they took a victory lap of sorts on Thursday. Both ABC and CBS highlighted Colt’s decision, with the former seemingly making up a quote from Colt’s CEO.
In a New York Magazine story claiming the age of athlete-politicians is coming soon, Will Leitch not only endorses the idea, but says a presidential ticket of LeBron James and Megan Rapinoe is already underway. Leitch is jazzed about the idea of athletes seeking public office — particularly those who are aligned with Democrat positions.
New York Times “climate reporter” Hiroko Tabuchi went to war against “secretive” conservative free-market groups that are fighting counter-productive regulations in Wednesday’s edition: “Warriors Against Environmental Rules Champion the Dishwasher.” Tabuchi found herself in the strange position of embracing corporate public-relations-speak from dishwasher manufacturers, in the cause of defending regulations.
The revelation that Canadian Prime Minister wore brownface on multiple occasions as an adult has thrown a wrench in a northernly neighbor's election cycle as the world's most woke leader is now the subject of international scrutiny for his past behavior. Back home the media has pursued the usual "pouncing" angels, but CNN contributor Wajahat Ali took the opportunity on Thursday's CNN Newsroom to espouse some hot takes of his own, including that, "conservatives don't seem to like black and brown people."
