CNN reporter Manu Raju is receiving flowers and sympathy notes from his distraught colleagues after a Republican Senator gave him a snarky response to a question he asked on impeachment, Thursday. On Capitol Hill, Senator Martha McSally of Arizona was approached by the CNN reporter and asked if “new evidence” would be allowed into the Senate trial on President Trump’s impeachment. McSally kept walking past Raju and responded, “Manu, you’re a liberal hack. I’m not talking to you.” After he tried again, she repeated again, “You’re a liberal hack.”
When Telemundo reports on Climate Change, the statements range from laughable to terrifying. So when Telemundo's morning show “Un Nuevo Dia” made an incomplete segment on how Climate Change affects our mental health, it should not come as a surprise that the ultimate goal was to “Create radical changes on how we behave towards the planet.”
CBS This Morning on Thursday devoted an entire segment to pushing the revival of the long-dead Equal Rights Amendment. Though reporter Jan Crawford did highlight a bit of opposition to the effort, she left out key details, such as the amendment’s connection to supporting abortion. Co-host Tony Dokoupil described it as a move “that's intended to outlaw discrimination against women.” Also not mentioned in the segment? The fact that four of the states which passed the ERA have since rescinded their votes.
Journalists are a fragile bunch aren’t they? They get away with quite a lot, but when Trump mutters “fake news,” or a senator calls a CNN hack a “liberal hack,” they respond as if Kim Jong Un’s torturing them for stealing a propaganda poster. Fear not however, as HBO and Harvey Weinstein nemesis Ronan Farrow are teaming up to remind the world just how “under fire” journalists are, not only around the world but in America.
The third season of the American Crime Story cable television series dealing with the impeachment of the 42nd U.S. President will not air on FX until after the 2020 election, John Landgraf -- the head of the pay cable television channel -- stated on Thursday, January 9. While the given reason for the delay is that creator-producer Ryan Murphy has a “busy schedule” due to the three-season renewal of his FX American Horror Story anthology series, Landgraf noted that the current media environment is “toxic” on issues related to the scandal involving Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.
On Thursday, only NBC’s Today show provided a full report on the landmark trade deal President Trump signed with China on Wednesday. However, that coverage included a shocking claim that U.S. trade policy pursued by the Trump administration actually caused American farmers to commit suicide.
On the front page of Tuesday’s New York Times, political reporter Jeremy Peters cynically spun President Trump’s so-far successful showdown with the terror-supporting regime in Iran in “Trump 2020? Move on Iran Gives Pause – Questioning 2016 Vow to End Wars.” Peters wrote from Dubuque, Iowa, where all the campaign reporters are hanging out in anticipation of the caucuses. The online headline: “Trump’s Iran Strategy May Cost Him in 2020 Election.” Perhaps, but not based on this very selective report of public opinion. Peters used Trump’s 2016 intervention-skeptical campaign rhetoric to condemn him today (not that the media credited him with his stand at the time):
In a meeting of "Hope and Change" and the Swoosh, Nike announced a $5 million donation to an athletic facility at the Obama Foundation's planned presidential center in Chicago. Nike's latest progressive effort aims to help create a place to inspire, learn and reflect in honor of the former president who "brought his love of hoops from the South Side of Chicago to the White House."
If it wasn’t scary enough being monitored by random strangers, a former Microsoft contractor reportedly claimed some private calls could have been accessed by the Chinese government! An anonymous former Microsoft contractor came forward and alleged that Microsoft’s grading program to transcribe and vet users’ audio “ran for years with no security measures.” The audio was sourced both from Skype conversations and Cortana, Microsoft’s voice assistant equivalent of Apple’s Siri. The anonymous contractor also explained how working in any territory ruled by the Chinese regime is hazardous in itself, stating that “Living in China, working in China, you’re already compromised with nearly everything."
It’s no question MSNBC has been begging for President Donald Trump’s impeachment. So, how does MSNBC legal analyst Jill Wine-Banks handle the issue of impeachment? By giving money to a Democratic Party House member who would later vote for impeachment.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says that the families, children, and grandchildren of defenders of President Trump will be punished by history. Vengeance will be visited on the descendants of the pro-Trump sinners.
It’s always been popular to hate on Christians and religion on television it seems. ABC’s Stumptown gives us the latest version by delivering a story about a terrible Christian woman doing “the Lord’s work” by separating Native American families. At this point, is there any other type of Christian on TV?
The series premiere of Paramount’s 68 Whiskey on January 15, “Buckley’s Goat,” introduces viewers to the boozed up, foul-mouthed (they drop uncensored f-bombs 25 times in 60 minutes), overly sexed (the very first scene involves soldiers getting it on) Army medics stationed in Afghanistan.
Here at MRC Culture, we increasinlyg have to type the word "throuple" into the keyboard when writing about television. Polyamory is the emergent radical sexual revolutionary idea that is popping up on everything from cable shows to police dramas. We can now add network "television comedy" to the growing list of Hollywood junk pushing this idea.
Every now and then some truth comes out during a network series that destroys a narrative long promoted by the left. Unborn babies are often referred to by the pro-abortion left as "clumps of cells," but this episode showed that ultrasounds reveal the humanity of the unborn child.
