Although making God a villain was already a low point, the final season of AMC’s Preacher branches out to ruin another member of the Holy Trinity with Jesus Christ. How many people think it’s fun to watch Jesus smoking dope and shooting people? By the looks of this episode, far too many. It’s moments like these that make me thankful that Preacher is finally coming to an end soon.
On Sunday afternoon, as MSNBC host Alex Witt interviewed Oregon Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley about detention of illegal immigrants, she not only gave no pushback on Merkley's incendiary claim that the Trump administration is in a "war on children," but she even added her own liberal commentary as she suggested that keeping illegals detained until their cases are concluded would not act as a deterrent to bringing children with them.
Hulu's Four Weddings and a Funeral has been largely apolitical since it premiered, but they made up for that in episode 7 "The Sound of Music," on Wednesday, a large portion of which was spent taking cheap shots at conservatives.
The New York Times retains its bizarre obsession with the left-wing hobbyhorse of “income inequality.” Former economics reporter Binyamin Appelbaum, who betrayed liberal viewpoints in his reporting, is now free to issue unadulterated left-wing opinions from his perch on the paper’s editorial board. His latest Sunday Review piece suggests “Blame Economists for the Mess We’re In.” It began with a history lesson on how the government got over its distaste for economists in prominent positions, while getting off the paper’s latest mean-spirited crack at Nobel winning economist Milton Friedman.
Kaepernick mania is beginning again. It's that time of year when NFL quarterbacks get injured, or retire as the Indianapolis Colts' quarterback Andrew Luck did last night, and sports media are convinced that the notorious Colin Kaepernick is the ticket to the Super Bowl for the team that signs him. Or, as NBC Sports' Mike Florio implied, Kaepernick could potentially save the job of Carolina Panthers' head coach Ron Rivera.
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin renewed a previous attack on former Donald Trump administration members as she declared that they should be "shunned" for the rest of the lives, and that the Republican party should figuratively be "burned down" so that there are no "survivors," punishing Trump's "enablers."
One day after reporting, “These fires were not caused by climate change,” the New York Times blamed the ongoing Amazon rain forest fires on....climate change. Norimitsu Onishi falsely conflated the Amazon rain forest wildfires in Brazil with global warming: "As the Amazon burned and the world faced an ecological disaster, President Emmanuel Macron of France bluntly criticized Brazil’s leader this week and threatened to kill a major trade deal between Europe and Brazil....The contrast highlighted the gap in leadership on issues affecting the global climate. "
David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon underlined on Friday just how dramatically the liberal media is shifting the goal posts on what statements are "incendiary." To say there are two genders is now apparently outrageous, beyond the pale, at least according to MSNBC anchor Chris Jansing.
Crazy might be the best term for describing the first segment of CNN’s so-called “Reliable Sources” on Sunday. Media janitor Brian Stelter invited on two far-left psychiatrists to debate how the media should cover President Trump alleged mental illness. While one was busy advocating to throw out professional ethics, the other one was declaring Trump had been worse than some of the last century’s most evil people.
Of course, Stephanopoulos humored him by letting the former Congressman bash the President and pushed back weakly on Walsh’s history of incredibly racist statements. Yet, during the so-called “powerhouse roundtable”, they admitted that Walsh didn’t have a chance at beating Trump; and Stephanopoulos found the important “question” was whether or not Walsh could “wound” the President’s chances.
The liberal media's reliable "rock star" metaphors are breaking out for the 2020 campaign. In Sunday's Washington Post, theatre critic Peter Marks witnessed Elizabeth Warren speaking in Tempe, Arizona and professed to be "moved," declaring Warren the "Springsteen of campaign 2020."
Saturday's New York Times included a surprising story on the front page about an evangelical pregnancy center in Newport, Tennessee. Reporter Elisabeth Dias spent time with Wendy Ramsey, who runs Options Pregnancy Help Center in the basement of Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church for expectant mothers. The article respectfully explored how Dawson is trying to make a difference in the lives of pregnant women -- and yes, tries to evangelize about Jesus.
The Deadspin blog has been at the forefront of the "we won't stick to sports" movement, but that may be about to change. Megan Greenwell, who identifies herself as the site's "former editor-in-chief," writes that new management is insisting Deadspin change its ways (so often vulgar, irreverent, anti-Christian, anti-Trump) and she has submitted her resignation.
The New York Times was in a panic in Saturday’s edition, with reporters Manny Fernandez and David Montgomery relaying Democratic whining about a GOP fundraising letter in “Texas Democrats Urge G.O.P. to ‘Eradicate’ Incendiary Rhetoric.” The Texas-based team of Fernandez and Montgomery have previously teamed up for freak-outs over the “far right,” “ultraconservative” Texas GOP, and they are still skittish about their fellow Texans: "Leaders of the Texas Democratic Party called the letter racist, anti-Latino and anti-immigrant and said it was filled with the kind of rhetoric that fueled the hatred of the El Paso gunman."
CNN host Chris Cuomo devoted his closing argument Friday night to trashing President Trump. Cuomo declared that “the President’s mouth is a threat to this country” and accused the President of racism.
