The man known as the “Gypsy King,” Tyson Fury, made sure to clear up any doubt about who the true King is after his seventh round Technical Knock Out of Deontay Wilder Saturday night.
When Republican-controlled statehouses were passing a wave pro-life laws around the country in 2019, the liberal broadcast networks looked on in horror and bashed the bills. On Monday, after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the Trump administration’s Protect Life Rule, the networks were nowhere to be seen. Instead, CBS Evening News reported on a study about smart speakers, ABC’s World News Tonight covered the weather, and NBC Nightly News complained about an Amazon series.
Here’s the shocking revelation of the latest episode of The New Pope: the Pope is not a good person. Even though the previous season of The Young Pope made that pretty clear, the HBO series still had to hammer home that unpleasant fact. Now we’re contending with an “antichrist” young Pope along with an “irresponsible,” “conceited,” drug addicted new Pope. The only winners here are those who don't watch the show.
One of the big announcements to come out of President Trump’s visit to India, so-far this week, was a $3 billion deal to supply the country with new military helicopters. But the viewers of ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News on Monday were misled to believe the visit as just the President was just on a sightseeing trip by ignoring the deal and other trade negotiations. Combined, the two networks didn’t even spend 30 seconds on Trump’s official trip abroad.
New on February 24: MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell charged that President Trump “is a Russian operative.” Picking up on some news reports on a briefing about intel community speculation that Russia may want to help Trump’s re-election, which came a day before reports Russia wants to help Democratic contender Bernie Sanders, O’Donnell asserted the Trump administration “might be better labeled the Trump-Putin regime.”
What in the world is Paul Krugman talking about? And yes, this is quite the evergreen take, but the New York Times columnist has done it again, folks. This time, he tweeted on Sunday that 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders (I-VT) “is NOT a left-leaning version of Trump” or “a wannabe authoritarian ruler.” RedState's Sister Toldjah had a field day on Monday, recapping how this was only the latest bizarre insistence Krugman has offered during this 2020 cycle.
Perhaps the reason why Monday’s network morning shows only spent a combined 74 seconds discussing socialist Senator Bernie Sanders singing the praises of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro was because journalists on NBC, ABC, and CBS knew full well that they had provided even more effusive commentary on the communist autocrat.
Can Bloomberg’s money hack the election? Twitter moderators would disagree. Twitter reportedly suspended 70 pro-Bloomberg accounts this past Friday for engaging in “platform manipulation.” For all of former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s money and unorthodox media strategies, he can't seem to buy an authentic grassroots following. “We have taken enforcement action on a group of accounts for violating our rules against platform manipulation and spam,” a Twitter spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times (The Times).
Liberal billionaire Warren Buffett, who’s been fairly quiet this election cycle, took to CNBC to weigh in on the Democratic primary races. As it turns out, even The Billion-Dollar King of Abortion found self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) too left-wing.
“Democratic socialist” and commie sympathizer Sen. Benie Sanders’ lead over the other Democratic 2020 nominees should terrify anyone who’s read a history book. Sadly, the enthusiasm shown for the Vermont Senator, especially in Hollywood, is evidence that many don’t know socialism leads to economic stagnation at best, and the horrors of the Soviet system, Maoist China and Castro’s Cuba at worst.
While The View co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Meghan McCain have bonded in recent weeks over their dislike for Democrat 2020 candidates Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg, on Monday's show, Hostin revealed she really blamed the “far right” Republican party for Sanders becoming the Democrat frontrunner.
As Bernie Sanders surges in the polls, journalists and media outlets are panicking at a possible general election loss. Now, conveniently, reporters see praising Fidel Castro and cheering socialism as a problem. On Sunday, 60 Minutes correspondent Anderson Cooper called out Sanders for cheering on dictators: “Back in the 1980s, Sanders had some positive things to say about the former Soviet Union and the Sandinistas in Nicaragua.”
On Monday, all three network morning shows combined could only manage a little over a minute (74 seconds) of air time to mention 2020 Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders defending deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro on Sunday’s 60 Minutes. However, after President Trump held a summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in July of 2018, the same broadcasts devoted 34 minutes to excoriating the meeting – and that was just in the first half hour of the respective shows.
Dan Gainor, Media Research Center (MRC) Vice President of TechWatch, issued the following statement Monday in response to a recent article from The Washington Post that claimed Facebook has “titled rightward” to avoid “Republican wrath.”
Google has bought its way into health care through fitness tracking. Is the European Union (E.U.) right to call foul? Both U.S. and E.U. regulators are wary of Google’s $2.1 billion purchase of fitness tracking company Fitbit last November. The New York Post announced that the Department of Justice would be looking into the acquisition last December, and the E.U.’s European Data Protection Board (E.D.B.P.) cited that this purchase by an already powerful company “could entail a high level of risk to privacy and data protection.”
