What started as a harmless place for teenage girls to learn how to straighten hair, apply makeup and style a dress has transformed into a parent’s nightmare. Teen girls’ magazines are loading their pages with left-wing propaganda and questionable sex advice.
Over the past several days, during discussions of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville from a year ago, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson went off the rails again as he not only defended the far-left group Antifa's hostility to cops, but he even suggested that police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, responding to the 2014 riots could be likened to white nationalists attacking blacks.
On his primetime show Monday evening, host Chris Cuomo praised the counter-protesters who showed up in the thousands to the paltry “Unite the Right” rally in Washington D.C., Sunday. In that crowd were “anti-fascist” and Black Lives Matter activists, who heckled and cursed at the police, Secret Service and journalists for showing up. The liberal activists even threw eggs, fireworks and water bottles at officers while concealing their identities with face masks.
For months now, the Trump administration has been trying to get Turkey hand over American Christian pastor Andrew Brunson after he was arrested on what have been described as trumped-up charges linked to the failed military coup attempt in 2016. But during Monday’s NBC Nightly News, the network just wasn’t having it and was worried President Trump was the one hurting the relationship with a NATO ally.
Over the weekend, allegations of domestic violence by Democratic Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison surfaced claiming he “emotionally and physically” abused his then-longtime girlfriend Karen Monahan. The allegations were serious enough for news outlets like Fox News and CNN to cover but ABC and NBC failed to do so. And while they covered the story Monday morning, CBS dropped it come that evening.
Ever since President Trump nominated U.S. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh on July 9 to fill the seat on the Supreme Court left open by retiring “swing justice” Anthony Kennedy, those on the left and in the media have hammered the pick as everything from “controversial” to “cruelly regressive.” While some swore they’d do anything to prevent the Supreme Count from turning more conservative, Time magazine writer Abigail Simon asserted that Kavanaugh is almost certain to be approved, so liberals and Democrats must adapt to the situation until they regain control of the Senate, whenever that happens.
Despite the first half or so of CNN’s The 2000s episode on the 2008 election and the early Obama years being largely pain-free on the bias front, the liberal media’s overwhelming love for Barack Obama burst through when it hit Election Day 2008 and the two years afterward. In all, CNN swooned over the Obama election with zero objectivity, portrayed Obama as trying to be bipartisan, and subtly painted Tea Partiers as angry, irrational conspiracy theorists who ran around with signs depicting the President as the Joker or a Nazi.
A long article in the New York Times Sunday Styles, “Civility and Culture Wars In an Iowa Gun Town – When neighbors disagree but a major voice remains silent.” Jacqui Shine left big hints that Iowans are just too nice to properly confront the NRA board chairman in their midst, “Pete Brownell, a well-known and well-liked local philanthropist....He is also the third-generation C.E.O. of Brownells, a major firearms company whose headquarters are here....His public remarks have been unsurprising in the national conversation, but also strike some as unneighborly."
It’s not unusual to hear a prominent politician accusing NBC News of bias. However, when that politician is Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and she’s accusing NBC of bias while appearing on MSNBC, it stands out. She made the claim on Sunday’s AM Joy, laughably arguing that the friendly broadcast network was out to get her.
For much of the day on Friday and into the weekend, various hosts on both CNN and MSNBC were hard at work smearing Fox News host Laura Ingraham as someone who uses her show to promote "racist" and "white supremacist" views as they reacted to a commentary she gave on The Ingraham Angle show in which she advocated for merit-based immigration and lamented dramatic "massive demographic" changes.
Picture that one weird, older uncle you might have. You know, the one who appears to be losing his grip on reality as he sits on your back porch sipping craft beer, puffing a funny-smelling cigarette, and rambling on about how Bernie Sanders’ political musings are the answers America needs right now. That’s basically how actor Danny DeVito has been coming off lately.
After already committing $110 million to his midterm efforts, California billionaire Tom Steyer said he would spend even more to turn out liberal voters in November.
At a Lansing, Mich., town hall on Aug. 13, Steyer announced he would spent another $10 million on a “Need to Vote” campaign through his Need to Impeach organization. He told the crowd they are in a “fight to save the soul of America.”
In an entertainment world that routinely mocks Christianity, one big name actor is using his platform to share his love of God. After starring in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, actor Chris Pratt won “Summer Movie Actor” during the 2018 Teen Choice Awards held Sunday evening. And he used the opportunity to unabashedly praise God to a crowd of teenagers.
In a piece by the New York Times, Cecilia Kang wrote about how she and Kate Conger attended a Twitter meeting, meant to discuss the removal of “dehumanizing content,” only to be disappointed. She wrote, “I felt that depicting a policy meeting that didn’t result in substantive changes, which was basically what happened, was in itself revealing about the state of Twitter.”
The Boston Globe is lobbying for a mass denunciation of Donald Trump as a response to his complaints about the media. According to The Hill, over 100 newspapers all over the country will “publish editorials fighting back against President Trump’s repeated attacks on the media.” In a pitch to fellow newspapers, the Globe demanded, “We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration's assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date.”
