Last week it was an anti-coal rant, this week on Apple TV+’s The Morning Show, Reese Witherspoon’s character admitted to a teenage abortion that inspired a viral moment that rallied the country behind her.
Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet was on MSNBC Live on Friday for a wide ranging interview with host Katy Tur in an attempt to bring attention to his longshot presidential campaign. That Bennet has styled himself as one of the more pragmatic members of the field by refusing to support Medicare for All did not sit well with Tur, who pressed the Democratic hopeful from the left on the issue.
Well-known climate alarmist and retired actor/director Robert Redford continued his assault on President Trump on Friday by calling the GOP official "one unqualified authoritarian” whose “depraved indifference to the climate crisis” does not define “Americans' commitments or the character of our nation. ... The clock is ticking so loudly” that “the rest of the world can hear it,” he stated.
As NewsBusters has previously reported, Seth Meyers’ new Netflix stand-up special, entitled “Lobby Baby,” has a button that allows viewers to fast-forward through the Trump jokes. According to Kevin Fallon of The Daily Beast, “you shouldn’t” because “that means skipping the exact thing he does better than anyone.” The anti-Trump Fallon devoted an entire article to explaining how “Seth Meyers Does Trump Jokes Better Than Anybody.”
All Americans love when millionaire television hosts preach forced wealth redistribution from their ivory towers, right? This is the latest liberal cause late night host Stephen Colbert advocated for on Thursday’s Late Show, during an interview with CBS’s John Dickerson.
Leftist indoctrination begins younger and younger now- a- days. At least, that seems to be the goal of liberal late-night host, Jimmy Kimmel, who aired a fake Lego commercial on Thursday that depicted President Trump as a criminal. As a foreshadowing of what was to come, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host could not resist the urge to immediately slime President Trump as a criminal who will soon be in prison:
While marking the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, on Friday’s NBC Today show, former Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw sat down for an fawning interview with former East German Olympic skater Katarina Witt, whom he labeled “the beautiful face of socialism.” Rather than celebrate the collapse of authoritarian Communism in Europe, Brokaw sympathized with Witt over how “hard” it must have been on her athletic career.
When the media won't stick to sports, it doesn't necessarily mean they're focusing on politics and social justice. Sometimes they find all three too boring to bother with, and that's when you get Thursday night's disgusting, juvenile Inside the NBA on TNT. And Sports Illustrated's pathetic admiration for that cultural rot on Friday.
On Friday afternoon, Megyn Kelly continued her return to the news business with a bombshell interview as she sat down with Ashley Bianco, the former ABC News producer who was fired after only four days at CBS News for allegedly being behind the tape of ABC’s Amy Robach admitting that the network quashed her reporting about alleged serial pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Vice President Mike Pence was in New Hampshire on Thursday to file President Trump's paperwork for that state's Republican Primary and afterwards gave a brief speech to supporters where he laid out the administration's case for re-election. One of the things Pence cited was the country's positive economic situation since 2017 and even MSNBC Live had to concede the positive economic situation in the country is currently quite good, so how did the anti-Trump network spin this one? By saying credit actually belongs with former President Obama, of course.
Congratulations to GLAAD. A group that claims to speak for 4% of the population has already reached its 2020 goal of bullying Hollywood into over-representing gays on TV. In fact, according to the organization’s “Where We Are On TV” report, gay characters are at an “all-time high.” The group boasts “10 percent LGBTQ inclusion among broadcast series regular characters on primetime scripted series,” with all LGBT series regulars comprising 10.2% of network characters.
Amidst the amusing shout-outs to Hardball host Chris Matthews on the 20th anniversary of the show being on MSNBC, Thursday’s show provided a potpourri of nonsense in the form of two takes. One take pertained to fears that the public impeachment hearings won’t go as well as the left hopes and then the other comparedformer Attorney General Jeff Sessions to the ugly, racist George Wallace.
The left has been pressuring Big Tech companies to change their ad policies in preparation for the 2020 election. The Wall Street Journal reports that Google is considering following the footsteps of Twitter when it comes to changing its political ad policies.
The pompous “Democracy Dies in Darkness” paper published an opinion piece Nov. 7 that was so opposed to reality, you had to wonder if it was a joke. The article entitled, “Can Republicans relearn how to accept political outcomes they don’t like?” wasn’t a joke, even though it would’ve fit in perfectly as a satire piece for The Babylon Bee.
CBS This Morning on Friday pushed the fantasy that the 2020 Democratic field somehow contains several “moderate” or “centrist” candidates, rather than far-left liberals. It started in the 7am hour when reporter Ed O’Keefe reflected on Michael Bloomberg potentially joining the race: “But recent polling shows Biden is slipping behind Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders and moderate Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.”
