Remember the good ol’ days when the weather was about the weather? Well, those days sure are no more. Now, ‘Climate Change’ is routinely trumpeted as the scapegoat for every weather abnormality going on in the world.
On Thursday afternoon, the Daily Caller reported that a former Ohio State University wrestler recanted his statement regarding Rep. Jim Jordan. The wrestler, Mark Coleman, originally claimed that Jordan had knowledge of sexual abuse by deceased OSU physician Dr. Richard Strauss. Coleman now says, “at no time did I ever say or have any direct knowledge that Jim Jordan knew of Dr. Richard Strauss’s inappropriate behavior.”
MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle on Friday made no effort to hide her contempt and scorn at the administration’s call for a sixth branch of the military to be called Space Force. She alternated between horror and mockery while reporting on Mike Pence’s announcement. After playing a clip of the Vice President stating, “It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space,” an appalled Ruhle marveled, “Oh my goodness.”
With the mid-term elections less than three months away, Telemundo’s morning show hosts aren’t waiting to begin their openly anti-Trump get-out-the-vote drive. The electoral activism kicked off as the hosts engaged in a round of severe criticism of the Trump administration for having earlier this summer separated adults and minors who unlawfully entered the United States.
You know what’s the best reason to subscribe to Billboard Magazine? No, not compelling artist interviews, or in-depth album reviews. It’s the hamfisted lectures on the evils of Donald Trump’s border policies that really make it worthwhile.
During her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur touted a July poll from the left-wing Center for American Progress that unsurprisingly found that a majority of respondents thought Republicans were “more corrupt” than Democrats. Tur quoted the biased survey results from a Politico article entitled: “Corruption message gaining traction against GOP.”
Colin Kaepernick could lose his collusion grievance against the NFL and still sue President Trump in federal court, says Yahoo! Sports' Charles Robinson. The likelihood of such a lawsuit became a media issue Thursday when attorneys for the NFL and Kaepernick met with an arbitrator to determine if the disgruntled former football player's collusion grievance will be allowed to go forward or not.
Rapper Kanye West sat down with ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel on his late night show Thursday night to talk about a his career, family life and his support for President Trump. After famously meeting with President at Trump Tower last year, he has been ostracized by the media for his continued and unlikely support for Trump. West addressed the backlash he’s faced for his decision, blasting the left and the media for trying to “bully” him into liking their preferred candidate.
Several NFL players protested or showed disrespect during the playing of the national anthem prior to the start of exhibition games Thursday night. The Huffington Post's Carla Herrera reported that they violated the league's policy banning "peaceful protest" without referencing the fact that the NFL froze the policy three weeks ago and began negotiating a new policy with the NFL Players Association.
The race for the Republican nomination for Kansas governor is almost as close as close could be with just 91 votes separating frontrunner Kris Kobach, the current secretary of state, and incumbent governor Jeff Colyer. In an appearance on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, Kobach was badgered with questions by the show’s namesake that suggested he was possibly involved with manipulating the recount.
First Lady Melania Trump’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs took the oath to become U.S. citizens on Thursday but NBC Nightly News was not having it. The broadcast network speculated that they received special treatment in the process and possibly used chain migration, a program the President opposes, even though the process still exists and still legal.
During the Wednesday night edition of CNN’s Cuomo PrimeTime, host Chris Cuomo joined the ranks of many other liberals who have interviewed far-left heartthrob Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the self-avowed socialist who upset incumbent Joe Crowley during the Democratic primary in New York on June 26. However, the CNN anchor behaved far differently than those other people when he asked how she would “pay" for any new programs because of the “sticker shock” additional health care might create.
Terry Mattingly at Get Religion was a little stunned at coverage of the latest additions to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, at how they seemed allergic to any mention of religious content -- and there was a lot of religious content.
Thursday’s New York Times showed itself all too eager to use new charges against Republican Rep. Chris Collins of New York to help Democrats. The front-page story was accompanied by an over-the-fold photograph of U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman announcing the charges against Collins, which the photo caption took care to identify as a Republican. The paper piled on with a story inside by Goldmacher, showing the paper already taking a sharp pro-Democratic partisan angle on the November elections. Contrast that instant identification by the New York Times to how the paper covered a Democratic congresswoman convicted and sentenced to five years in prison.
During Wednesday’s edition of The Five, co-host Greg Gutfeld delivered a monologue highlighting the hypocrisy of the media for slamming President Trump when he goes after media outlets but looking the other way when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio criticized Fox News during a recent interview with The Guardian.
