“ISIS's reign of terror over nearly ten million people has come to an end,” CBS international correspondent Charlie D’Agata proudly announced during Wednesday’s CBS Evening News. The reports came as President Trump told the press that the last remnants of the terrorist group should be wiped out by tonight. It was great news that got little airtime on ABC’s World News Tonight, where anchor David Muir sounded skeptical of the President.
As CNN anchors have repeatedly over the last several days made a point of highlighting vows by New Zealand's prime minster to enact new gun control quickly in response to the recent mosque attacks, CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin went so far as to give a commentary suggesting that U.S. lawmakers have failed by not behaving more like New Zealand.
Game of Thrones star Kit Harington appears to be the latest in a long line of Hollywood lefty Trump Derangement Syndrome victims. The actor behind the show's hero Jon Snow recently sat down with Variety to talk about the upcoming final season of HBO’s insanely popular, long-running medieval fantasy series, a shockingly-violent and sexually-disturbed drama that focuses on various royal bloodlines competing for the claim to the Iron Throne.
“We’ve looked at the top social media companies. Twitter always ends up being the worst of the bunch,” MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor said on Trish Regan Primetime on Fox Business on March 19.
California’s “Mediterranean climate” gets attention when it can be used to leverage panic over climate change and when people’s lives and properties are at risk. But the broadcast networks have proved that when it cycles back around thanks to a wet winter, they won’t always report it.
It's fascinating that the networks just keep using the data on "hate groups" cooked up by the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center, but they have skipped reporting on the group's internal uproar and the ousting of its founder, Morris Dees. CBS even used SPLC hater data on growing "white supremacy" on Sunday's Face the Nation to push White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney in the aftermath of the New Zealand mosque attacks.
On her 10:00 a.m. ET hour show Wednesday morning, MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson tried to offer a “reality check” to liberal super-fans of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. After reading from an Associated Press report that described Democrats collecting “earrings, paintings, prayer candles, valentines, ornaments” with Mueller’s name or image in hopes that he would bring President Trump’s downfall, Jackson warned that “his report is not going to be what everybody thinks it’s gonna be.”
Can an “anti-hate group” have a hostile work environment? Will a group that maintains a “hate map” find hate in its own HQ? Can an organization that trades in bogus accusations survive something as bogus as a “workplace cultural compliance” investigation? Will a former Obama insider really expose the depredations of fellow “social justice” crusaders? Stay tuned to find out on the next episode of Southern Poverty Law!
That MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough does not like President Trump is not exactly earth shattering news. Yet, the former Republican congressman always finds a new way to sound like a Democrat in his criticisms, including in a Wednesday Washington Post op-ed he wrote that made the show's admittedly liberal guests seem reasoned by comparison.
Facebook punished a Pro-Life post by the Texas GOP because it supposedly was considered “clickbait.” Republicans are not convinced. The Texas GOP Caucus on March 17 Sunday posted on Facebook about the “Texas Born Alive Infant Protection Act.” Facebook flagged the posts to reduce their reach, and alerted the caucus that “Your ad’s text (or text in image) was flagged because it could be a negative experience.” When Dallas News reached them for comment, a spokesman from the social media platform said that the company flagged the material because “we have increased our efforts to reduce what we call clickbait or engagement bait.”
New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has given up on helping rural whites, judging from his Tuesday column, “Getting Real About Rural America.” The text box: “Nobody knows how to reverse the heartland’s decline.” To strengthen his attack on rural Americans, Krugman hints that social welfare programs often do no good, an interesting perspective from a liberal economist. He shed crocodile tears for rural America, while passive-aggressively sticking the knife in: "Even then, rural areas and small towns weren’t the 'real America,' somehow morally superior to the rest of us."
Wednesday on MSNBC, NBC senior media reporter Dylan Byers scoffed at the notion that some conservatives were being targeted on social media platforms, calling it a “comical” conspiracy theory that in reality, “does not exist.” These comments came in response to President Trump attacking Twitter and Facebook for anti-conservative “discrimination” Tuesday and after Republican Rep. Devin Nunes put out a lawsuit against Twitter for “shadowbanning” his account in 2018, among other concerns.
Comedian Jim Jeffries spent his Tuesday evening agonizing over the scourge of racism and what factors have contributed to it the most in recent years. As you’d expect coming from a showbiz lefty, he’s concluded the onus of racism is on right-wingers, whose desire for a “pointless wall” and faith in the power of “thoughts and prayers” leads to both radicalism and inaction in response to acts of hatred.
CNN still has yet to report on the now week-old lawsuit filed against them by lawyers for Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann. The suit, which accuses the cable network of “falsely attacking, vilifying, and bullying” the teenager, has not received a single second of airtime during any CNN broadcast, nor has it been mentioned in any article on their website as of 1:00 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, March 20.
Far-left late night host Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday night tried to decide which Democrat he will support in 2020. As he interviewed Kamala Harris, he also prompted the Senator on a hypothetical scenario: Would she, after winning the White House, prosecute Donald Trump and his “hench characters.” After Harris touted her experience as a prosecutor, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host demanded, “You're saying if you are president and Donald Trump is out of White House you will then continue to prosecute him and his various hench characters?”
