One of the most interesting stories at The New York Times is the fierce battle within the newspaper to drag it further to the left than it already is. The internal fury over the Times printing a blandly objective headline about Trump -- "TRUMP URGES UNITY VS. RACISM" -- resulted in an internal "town hall" meeting, and it appears the leftists leaked the transcript to the liberal website Slate.
CW is the latest network to jump on the horror anthology train with its new series Two Sentence Horror Stories. Unlike Hulu’s Into the Dark or the new Twilight Zone reboot, the first few episodes of this series have been clear and concise, surprisingly focusing mostly on the scares in its twenty-minute runtime. Unfortunately, that changed with the arrival of its latest episode and some illegal immigrant fear mongering.
On Wednesday, CBS Evening News and special contributor Maria Elena Salinas were up in arms because, so far, the Mississippi food processing plants raided by Immigration and Customs Enforcement last week were not being prosecuted. The report was largely designed to make it seem as though the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi, Mike Hurst was not serious about prosecuting them. But on Thursday, CBS shared more from Salinas’s interview with Hurst. And it turns out, she deceptively omitted a clip of Hurst pledging to prosecute when they had enough evidence.
While CNN has obsessed over the Trump administration denying access to hostile journalists in the White House press, only Fox News has noticed that the Democratic governor of Wisconsin, Tony Evers, is giving the cold shoulder to the conservative media in Madison. The MacIver Institute, which calls itself the "free market voice for Wisconsin," sued Evers for greater press access.
CNN's John King began his Inside Politics program on Thursday by lamenting Israel's refusal to admit leftist Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar as "unprecedented" and contrary to democratic ideals.
Citing an itinerary that proved they were out to “deny Israel’s legitimacy”, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Thursday that anti-Semitic U.S. Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashia Tlaib (D-MI) were barred from entering the country. Of course, the liberal media had an absolute meltdown with the flagship evening programs of ABC, CBS, and NBC rushing to the Congresswomen’s defense, while covering up their deep-seated anti-Semitic worldviews.
On Wednesday, CNN showcased yet again their unsavory penchant for gun control and confiscation without facts and knowing little about an arrest warrant gone wrong in Philadelphia that left six police officers hurt. Unfortunately, this behavior continued into Thursday with 19 minutes and 28 seconds of gun control lobbying in context of the incident during their first 12 hours of live programming.
Athlete activism is both growing and diversifying, just in time for the 2020 Summer Olympics and the U.S. election, writes The Washington Post's Jerry Brewer. It's all the more reason for this sports columnist to stray from his lane and stick to the promotion of athlete/coach activism. "Could there be many displays that paint the ugly picture of divisiveness in America?" Brewer asks.
Recent shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, prompted left-wing anti-gun groups to go on a $2-million advertising binge calling for gun control. Liberal media mogul Michael Bloomberg’s group Everytown for Gun Safety led the pack of gun-control advocates with nearly half that spending.
On Thursday, news broke that Israel would block Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from visiting the country due to their calls for a boycott of the Jewish state. In response, MSNBC thought it was important to provide viewers with a supposed “fact check” claiming that the far-left lawmakers, who both have a history of anti-Semitism, didn’t “hate” Israel.
Check for flying pigs, 5 LGBTQ+ YouTube channels famous for bearded drag queens, progressive politics, and sex-ed are agreeing with conservatives on censorship. No less than five channels have joined together for a lawsuit against YouTube and its parent company Google. According to Buzzfeed, they have accused the Big Tech platform of “hiding their videos, removing subscribers, and denying advertising.” They claim that certain keywords in the titles of their videos such as "gay," "transgender," or "bisexual," can get them penalized.
Business dilemma: Faced with the choice, do you continue to soak up government subsidies to fund 97% of what your operation, or do you forswear the pork and concentrate on the 3% (really, just 3% you swear!) If you’re America’s largest abortion mill, you go with the latter. The Trump administration is forcing the professional baby killers at Planned Parenthood to make that choice, decreeing that healthcare providers receiving government funds via Title X may not use the money to promote or provide abortions in any way, shape or form.
Reporter Michael Wines hyperventilated again over “dangerous to democracy” gerrymandering by Republicans in Wisconsin, in Thursday’s New York Times: “Push to End Partisan Maps Is Held Up by the Map Makers.” He led off with strong language: When the Supreme Court concluded this summer that it had no authority to strike down partisan political maps, no matter how outrageous, Chief Justice John G. Roberts offered solace to those who call the maps dangerous to democracy."
During Wednesday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360, the eponymous host aired an excerpt of his lengthy interview with Stephen Colbert, host of The Late Show. Not surprisingly, the interview involved plenty of Trump-bashing on the part of both Cooper and Colbert.
As #TrumpRecession trends on Twitter and the liberal media panic over a “coming economic meltdown,” economist Art Laffer took a different view. The former economic adviser to President Ronald Reagan told Fox News that he wasn’t currently worried. “I’m not at, right now, concerned about a recession,” Laffer told America’s Newsroom. “We have great policies in. This administration has done a great job on taxes, on monetary policy, on regulatory policy.”
