The headline over at NBC News was succinct: "MSNBC, Washington Post to co-host November Democratic presidential debate. Eight candidates appear to have qualified so far for the matchup in Georgia next month. The NBC story reported this: "MSNBC and The Washington Post will co-host the fifth Democratic presidential primary debate in Georgia next month, MSNBC announced Tuesday." 



The New York Times is again trying to police the boundaries of allowable debate, with a supposed controversy over a scheduled meeting at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort by a group reviled by the left for its documentation of the threat of radical Islam: “Mar-a-Lago Again Under Fire for Hosting Group That Promoted Islamophobia.” Reporter Mihir Zaveri used two discredited pressure groups to make his case against the Center for Security Policy: the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic pressure group which the U.S. Senate has tied to terrorism, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the fundraising mill targeting gullible liberals.



Jane Fonda keeps pulling off the impossible in Hollywood. The Oscar winner stepped away from cameras in 1990 only to stage an improbable comeback with the 2005 hit Monster in Law. She was in her mid-60s at the time in an industry where turning 40 can stop a career cold.Now, at 81, Fonda stars in her own celebrated Netflix comedy, Grace and Frankie. The series treats aging with humor and respect, giving Fonda yet another showcase for her gifts.    



It was one year ago this week that Elizabeth Warren released a disastrous video attempting to bolster her claims of being a Native American. It was poorly received and even liberal ABC, CBS and NBC dismissed the efforts. To recap, Warren in the fall of 2018 produced results of a DNA test she insisted proves her Native American heritage. On October 16, 2018, Good Morning America and CBS This Morning quoted from a Cherokee Nation statement eviscerating Warren:



One of the most interesting parts of the CNN Democrat debate this week had nothing to do with the debates. It came during a commercial break. The Washington Post bought commercial time -- which isn’t shocking, since the Democrats are the paper’s natural subscriber base. It’s how they promoted themselves that was truly jaw-dropping.



At the Daily Signal, John Cooper of the Heritage Foundation warned he had an unhappy experience with the "fact checking" unit at CNN. They reached out to Heritage for analysis of President Trump's recent comments about the American military's munitions stockpile when he took office. "CNN completely omitted the wealth of data provided by a Heritage Foundation defense analyst."



The New York Times, keeping support for free expression at arms length when it appears President Trump may employ it for his reelection campaign. The paper was alarmed by Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, who announced that Facebook would not serve a privatized Ministry of Truth for political ads in 2020, no matter how much the Times (representing the aggrieved Democratic Party) may whine. Cecilia Kang and Mike Isaac listened to Zuckerberg’s speech Thursday at Georgetown University and filed “Defiant Zuckerberg Says Facebook Won’t Police Political Speech -- In an address at Georgetown University, the Facebook chief executive called for more free speech -- not less -- as his company has been assailed for allowing lies and falsehoods to appear.”



Given the blatant liberal bias in “journalism” today, there is little room to wonder why public confidence in the media has declined sharply in recent years. Former newspaper publisher, Walter Hussman, made an appearance on Thursday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight in an attempt to uncover what went awry in modern press.



Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg did some that should not be considered remarkable on Thursday, but given the current political context was- having listened to the concerns of others regarding free speech, he decided not appoint himself the final arbiter of truth. However, this left the media out in the cold, if Zuckerberg won't take down that anti-Biden Trump ad, who will? Fortunately for the media, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff has a book to sell and is willing to play the role.



Actor John Lithgow wrote an op-ed that appeared in Thursday's New York Times that comes off more like a therapy session of a very angry patient giving vent to his extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome. The surprising thing is that the Times editors seemed to have done nothing to tone down Lithgow's embarrassing rants. The result is the reader is put in the position of a therapist listening to the ranting of an Anger Management patient. 

 



On Thursday’s D.L. Hughley Show, the cast discussed a North Carolina middle school student group chat that was allegedly caught making racist remarks about “shooting n-words and killing n-word babies” to which the host Hughley disgustingly joked: “Are you sure they just didn’t tap into the White House website?” 



Spending millions on his own campaign, is liberal billionaire Tom Steyer drawing into question his goal of getting money out of politics? Steyer spent a whopping $47 million “during the first three months of his presidential bid” (84 days), which “places him on track to join the biggest self-funding political candidates in American history,” The Los Angeles Times reported October 16.



MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell opened Wednesday’s edition of The Last Word by gleefully reporting on President Trump’s supposed “meltdown” during a meeting with Congressional Democrats earlier in the day. He praised House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as an “adult in the room” standing up to America’s “child President.”



On Friday, CBS This Morning was fearful of pro-life legislation passed in Louisiana that would require abortion doctors have admitting privileges to hospitals. The coverage sounded the alarm about the move potentially “regulating abortion out of existence” in the state and fretted over the upcoming Supreme Court decision that would determine whether the new law violated Roe v. Wade.



If competitive soccer games are too toxically masculine for your taste, and if your idea of “diversity” is an all-black cast, The New York Times has some games for you! The Times in mid-October posted “Fear, Anxiety and Hope: What It Means to Be a Minority in Gaming,” a roundup of diverse and (uniformly) progressive video game creators who The Times hopes will replace gaming’s “toxic” culture.Many of the games specifically deal with the creators’ own trauma and issues of identity. From an artistic perspective, the classic advice of “write what you know” is an understandable starting point, but many of these creators seem happy to jump off the deep end.
