Our friend Mark Hemingway at Real Clear Investigations tweeted about a disturbing article at VICE.com half-lionizing Aileen Wuornos, the hooker-turned-serial killer. The title was "How Serial Killer Aileen Wuornos Became a Cult Hero: To her fans, Wuornos's story offers a powerful example of a survivor who defies the respectability politics of victimhood." The article really went off the rails when writer Sofia Barrett-Ibarria suggested Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh should meet a violent end like the prey of Wuornos
Speaking on Thursday’s Hardball to Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), kooky MSNBC host Chris Matthews quipped without any reservations that President Donald Trump is so scared of gun control that he compared it to Trump being fearful of...losing his virginity?
On Thursday September 19, Live Action founder and president Lila Rose tweeted “BREAKING: In a meeting today with @HawleyMO, Mark Zuckerberg said @facebook was wrong to censor me & @LiveAction, that there was clear bias, and that the 'fact checkers' were activists.” The censoring in question was when Facebook had relied on two abortionists who worked for Planned Parenthood and NARAL to factcheck Live Action, a pro-life organization.
It’s hard to compete with the crazy takes often expressed by hosts of The View, but on Friday, guest Margaret Atwood certainly came close. The author of the dystopian Handmaid’s Tale came to the show to talk about the Hulu adaptation of her book and her new sequel to the thirty-year-old aforementioned novel. While there, the Canadian author slammed the United States' abortion laws, even arguing that the government should pay for every woman’s house, food, clothing and medical bills, if they are “forced to give birth,” or more bluntly, forced to not kill their children.
Schoolkids around the world are cutting class Friday for the “climate,” and the New York Times is very excited (so much for the value of education). The editorial page was especially hyped up, issuing a call online for protest sign pictures: “Are You Going to the Climate Protest? We Want to See Your Sign! -- We want to share young people’s illustrations and videos with the world.” Thursday’s lead National story featured the 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, accompanied by a huge promotional photo of Thunberg's testimony to Congress. “She Didn’t Mince Words: ‘Listen to the Scientists.’”
The media is hyping the Global Climate Strike, especially in the United States, where 800 marches were planned. Tech companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and Wikipedia have large bodies of employees who are going on strike. But are these people in touch with what Americans care about? Google Trends tweeted “In the last few weeks, we’ve been exploring how people search for the environment.
How many people have to join before something becomes a “movement?” If the cause is climate change, the answer is fewer people than there are in Homer, Alaska: population 5,697. Even though there were only a little over a thousand signatories that day, USA Today hyped a new “climate change movement,” called “No Future, No Children” Sept. 19. Eighteen-year old Canadian Emma Lim has pledged not to have children until her government “takes serious action” on climate.
As The New York Times goes into damage control mode following their erroneous Justice Kavanagh hit piece, former Times executive editor Jill Abramson appeared on Fox’s Outnumbered Overtime on Wednesday in an attempt to excuse the paper for leaving key exculpatory evidence out of the initial article. Abramson tried to claim "no one has challenged the basic accuracy of the story that they published." Yes, they have!
It’s no surprise that people in the “mainstream media” in news and entertainment are tilted so far to the left that they very likely could not be much more liberal. Nevertheless, in a ridiculous effort to bring more conservative viewers to NBC’s Saturday Night Live program, producer Lorne Michaels saw his clumsy strategy blow up in his face after it was discovered newly hired “conservative” comic Shane Gillis had used his podcast to openly attack homosexuals, Asians and other minority groups.
On Morning Joe, MSNBC "Republican" Elise Jordan, commenting on Rudy Giuliani's conversation with Chris Cuomo on CNN regarding possible contacts between the Trump administration and Ukraine, literally called for Giuliani to be sent off to die: "drunk grandpa just needs to be pulled off to hospice."
The three major broadcast networks spent time promoting radical environmental activism on Friday’s morning broadcasts. Teens and children conducted a global “strike” this morning against climate change ahead of a United Nations summit on the subject. ABC, NBC and CBS couldn’t get enough of the youths' liberal activism, gushing about the kids as young as 9 years old walking out of school to “lead the way” in the political movement.
This week, 250 news organizations around the world are colluding to produce global warming propaganda in the days surrounding the UN climate summit on September 23. Variety magazine is one of the publications involved and they reported on Hollywood’s efforts to combat global warming, wondering if the entertainment industry is doing enough to sway public opinion.
The American press fell head over heels for the lefty Canadian PM when he first hit the scene in 2016. He got the pop star treatment with network anchors catching “Justin Fever” as they swooned over the “super hunky” “dreamy” and “adorable” politician they dubbed “Canada’s Obama.” The following is just a few of examples of the liberal media’s infatuation with Trudeau, as culled from the MRC’s archives.
Since CNN's counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd has a reputation for being vociferously anti-Trump, it must have come as quite a surprise to Chris Cuomo on Wednesday when Mudd made comments extremely critical of the intelligence community whistleblower who filed a complaint about one of President Trump's phone calls with a foreign leader.
In Thursday’s installment of The Hill’s “Rising,” chief Washington correspondent Saagar Enjeti lit up New York Times reporters Kate Kelly and Robin Pogrebin for their smear campaign against Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and grilled them on their obfuscation of exculpatory facts.
