A recent gaffe at YouTube has proved that human censors can be just as bad as robots at distinguishing between hate speech and satire. This past Wednesday in November 2018, Youtube had to undo the removal of a satire video dating back to the second World War.
Not surprisingly, CNN was in an exuberant mood on Friday morning after federal judge Timothy Kelley ordered their chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta to have his White House press credentials restored following the Trump administration’s decision on November 7 to yank his pass following yet another act of showboating by Acosta hours earlier at a White House press conference.
Jazz Shaw at Hot Air pointed out that New York Times book reviewer Jennifer Senior is trying to attract attention by retracting her book reviews. (Now, she's a columnist.) Her article is headlined "I Take Back My Praise of Jeff Flake's Book."
Media are today tripping over each other to report on this weekend's gay wedding of a former Dallas Cowboys football player. Jeff Rohrer played for Coach Tom Landry's Cowboys in the 1980s, but now he's famous for being the first (known) man ever to play in the NFL and marry another man. The story immediately became political, and Vice President Mike Pence became the anti-hero.
ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel was next in line to assist former First Lady Michelle Obama in promoting her new memoir. On Thursday night’s show, the liberal host used that opportunity to beg Obama to convince her husband to enter politics again, comparing him to Superman and President Trump to his evil arch nemesis, Lex Luthor.
Morning Joe has been reduced to a Trump-trolling mess, in which every show is essentially the same. A show so predictable, it's boring. As Crosby, Stills & Nash put it in Judy Blue Eyes: "It's getting to the point, where I'm no fun anymore."
The New York Times, which in July devoted nearly 6000 words to Democratic lawyer Michael Avenatti, buried the domestic abuse accusations on page A-22 of the paper, Thursday. The story by Rebecca R. Ruiz and Matt Stevens describes Avenatti, who is repesenting porn star Stormy Daniels, a “fierce advocate of women’s rights.”
The feminazi site Bustle, which celebrates all things Planned Parenthood and abortion, was delighted to report on the electoral victories of 6 current or former Planned Parenthood staffers who went from working for the billion dollar abortion business to elected office where they can now lobby on the inside for their radical agenda. To Planned Parenthood, that has got to be priceless compared to the tens of millions they spent on this year's elections.
NBC’s comedy Will & Grace played on the revisionist history myth that President Abraham Lincoln was secretly gay (a myth that liberal Hollywood loves to spread) as if it were a proven fact on Thursday’s episode, “Kid ‘n Play.”
I guess now that homosexuality and bisexuality are no longer shocking, S.W.A.T. decided a polyamorous relationship would spice things up this season. On the CBS show, about a S.W.A.T. unit working with L.A.P.D., Officer Chris Alonso is bisexual. Now, however, that is being escalated into a threesome.
We’ve finally reached the end of the season for Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman, and it couldn’t get here fast enough. As usual, the comedian takes the half-hour to promote liberal politics, slam conservatives, and endlessly insult Trump. Remember back when her stated goal was to "connect with un-like-minded people"? Because I doubt she does. I know I shouldn’t expect anything from the series that has gone on more than twenty episodes, but I keep getting disappointed.
Never letting any opportunity to bash President Trump go to waste, the November 15 episode of CBS’s Murphy Brown even worked a line into a conversation with a patient coming out of a coma. Of course, the woman is horrified to find out that Donald Trump is now president.
The Department of Veterans Affairs has been a dysfunctional mess for decades and thus taking place over multiple presidencies. The latest example of the VA’s dysfunction has been an apparent “computer glitch” that resulted in veterans not receiving their G.I. Bill benefits. But facts be damned (like most nights) to CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday night’s Prime Time as he blamed all the VA’s problems directly on President Trump.
On Tuesday we had an over the top gushy CNN report by Dana Bash on how absolutely wonderful House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is. This bit of excessive saccharine was followed up on Thursday with CNN's New Day host Alisyn Camerota advocating so forcefully for Pelosi as Speaker of the House, it almost sounded like she was auditioning to be her floor manager for that campaign.
The mandatory machine recount in Florida wrapped up Thursday to the joy of Congressman Ron DeSantis as he unofficially became governor-elect. DeSantis won by 0.4 percent over Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. In spite of these facts, broadcast networks ABC and NBC, along with Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision, all refused to report DeSantis’s victory during their evening news programs.
