An explosive debate broke out on Monday’s edition of Cuomo Prime Time focusing on Israel’s decision to bar two Democratic members Congress in “the Squad” from entry because of their support for BDS. While the debate included the usual talking points about President Trump targeting “the Squad” because of their skin color and religion, the conversation went off the rails when CNN political commentator Angela Rye, addressing Republican Strategist Patrick Griffin, identified “the greatest terrorist threat in our country” as “white men who think like you.”
Ah, Teen Vogue, long gone are the days when the fashion mag aimed at teens would do what fashion mags aimed at teens were supposed to; like selling make up or teaching girls about cute back-to-school clothing and accessories. Now the kid-friendly edition is all about selling weird gender politics and radical pro-abortion propaganda. Case in point: the outlet just published a story about the government-funding cataclysm that has just befallen the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
Tuesday afternoon MSNBC anchors spent their shows fretting that the largest abortion provider in the country that heavily contributes to Democrats was opting out of Title X government funding over an abortion gag order. Hosts Andrea Mitchell, Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle whined that poor “non-political” women who “depended” on the abortion giant would lose access to “critical health care” because of the Trump administration.
The New York Times may be trying to haul moribund Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro over the line and onto the stage for the next debate.The front page of Monday’s edition featured a profile of Castro by Amy Chozick, “He Had an ‘Obama Moment.’ His Supporters Want Another.” Chozick seems bent on providing that moment with her rags-to-riches gloss on Castro. Castro is the twin brother of Rep. Joaquin Castro, who personally shamed some of his constituents who had the audacity to participate in the political system by donating to the Trump re-election campaign. Chozick skipped that family drama, instead leading off with ancient history: Castro’s keynote address at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
On Tuesday, journalists on all three network morning shows joined liberal celebrities in rushing to defend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle against accusations of hypocrisy after the supposedly environmentally-conscious royal couple took two different trips on private jets within a week. Reporters on CBS, NBC, and ABC touted other wealthy elites like Elton John and Ellen DeGeneres scolding critics for daring to question the royals’ controversial travel habits.
Ready for a handful of liberal news sources and a maybe a conservative or two? How about a computer program that chooses what stories you should read? Facebook’s upcoming “News Tab” already sounds suspect. Especially, in light of previous attempts by the company to control its news feed. Facebook “will pay dozens of publishers to license content for News Tab, and news from many more will be included.” In Axios’ exact words “A small team of journalists will pick stories for a Top News section.”
Did you hear about The Hunt and assume the worst from elitist lefty Hollywood? Did you watch the trailer, raise an eyebrow and say, “Wait, deplorables are the good guys!” Well, either way, you were wrong, according to the director. Craig Zobel has spoken publicly about the film for the first time since Universal shelved it in the wake of the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings, telling Variety he had intended to satirize right and left in our ongoing culture wars and use the critique as the launch point “to make a fun, action thriller.”
On Tuesday morning, syndicated talk-radio host Chris Plante mocked "National Panhandler Radio" for having some seriously high salaries for a taxpayer-subsidized network that begs for listener donations in pledge drives. Plante cited tweets by Washington Post media reporter Paul Farhi from the latest IRS 990 form for nonprofits revealing the high salaries of NPR stars. Plante marveled first at Weekend Edition Saturday host Scott Simon, who is a one-day-a-week anchor and yet made $479,578 -- a 16 percent pay hike.
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued a statement on Tuesday regarding former Senator Jon Kyl’s interim report on Facebook’s anti-conservative bias.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’ Facebook watch platform continues to take a hard stance in support for liberal policy items. A recent instance of “Real America” continues to push an extreme position on abortion. This brief segment captured the essence of Ramos’ coverage of abortion; pro-lifers are cast as extremists, and those who favor abortion are cast as brave defenders of our fundamental freedoms.
CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Tuesday repeated a nasty quote about Mike Pompeo, deriding the Secretary of State as a “heat-seeking missile for Trump’s” ass. King interviewed Pompeo for Tuesday’s show and parroted the vulgar comment from a New Yorker piece. She regurgitated, “One former American ambassador who shall not be named, this is delicate, describes you like ‘a heat-seeking missile for Trump's bottom.’ Except he used the other word.”
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough covers for the false and defamatory tweets made by Democrat presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, who accused a policeman in Ferguson, MO of having "murdered" Michael Brown. Scarborough cryptically says: "there, there, uh, were a few, uh, members, uh, a few members of the US Senate that, uh, tweeted some things, uh, about Ferguson that were not borne out by video evidence or by Eric Holder."
As the abortion fight intensifies, with Planned Parenthood withdrawing from Title X government funding, and multiple abortion restrictions going into several states’ law in January, pro-choice advocates’ hysteria is at a fever pitch. You know the kind of hysteria that isn’t satisfied with viewing abortion as a necessary evil, but insists on calling the murderous procedure a facilitator of “great joys” in a career-driven woman’s life. That’s what Alyssa Milano is insisting, and it raises the question: what exactly is Milano’s career? But we digress.
Facebook released its official report about accusations of bias from conservatives — only it bears no resemblance to the similar audit it did for the left. The company didn’t actually admit conservative concerns about censorship were valid in the new report.
The journalists at CNN and NBC this weekend scoffed at the idea that one would blame the perpetrator of a mass shooting instead of the gun itself. First, NBC dismissed this simply as a talking point of “gun control opponents.” Then, CNN mocked the idea of personal responsibility, comparing guns to the opioid crisis.
