Fresh off their disinformation campaign in the immediate aftermath of the Parkland, Florida school shooting in which they falsely claimed there had been 18 school shootings this year, the three major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) moved on to another fake news topic they wanted to push on the American people: President Trump and the GOP made it easier for mentally ill people to buy guns.
Washington Post art critic Philip Kennicott ripped into the Age of Reagan in reviewing a new exhibit at Washington's Hirshhorn Museum that “explores the evaporation of the line between art and commodity in the 1980s.” Attacking Reagan apparently required a dollop of the never-ending Fake News of the Reagan administration’s “purposeful neglect” of homosexuals dying from AIDS.
On Wednesday, a Global Opinions Editor at the Washington Post praised the work of Christopher Steele as "extraordinarily prescient," created by a man who "had stumbled onto a breathtaking threat to U.S. national security." Accordingly, Steele, per the headline at Christian Caryl's opinion piece, "is a hero – and Americans owe him their thanks" — a Four-Pinocchio claim by the Post's own standards.
Flashing his inner Jim Acosta (again), CNN’s The Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer harassed and lobbied Florida Republican Governor Rick Scott for gun control restrictions in light of the Parkland shooting to stick it to the National Rifle Association (NRA) and “prevent this from happening again” without any policy prescription besides a gun ban.
Prodded on by the approving ESPN SportsCenter host Cari Champion, LeBron James delivered his latest installment of attacks on President Trump today. The professional basketball star who tweeted the unprofessional message "u bum" to the president last year, uses his Uninterrupted internet forum to blast Trump as someone who "really don't give a f--- about the people." Zachary Ripple, online sports editor for The New York Daily News, gave James more mileage by posting the video on his site along with a short story.
Every time the term ‘semiautomatic weapon’ hits the mainstream, it’s almost certain that at least one pundit will put their foot in their mouth while attempting to advocate for gun control legislation. Thanks to Katy Tur, that trend has continued.
During Thursday’s edition of New Day, gun control advocate and part-time journalist Chris Cuomo seemed perplexed that gun control did not make it into the priority list of President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” agenda.
In the immediate aftermath of Wednesday’s school shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school, the liberal media sprinted to push gun control while vigorously waving a ridiculous school shooting statistic put out by the anti-gun lobbyist group, Everytown for Gun Safety. According to their numbers, there had been 18 school shootings since the start of 2018. The only problem? It was bogus. So much so, even the liberal Washington Post found the need to call out them and the rest of the media.
CBS on Friday admitted that This Morning co-host Gayle King, a Democratic donor, is actively lobbying her liberal friend Oprah Winfrey to run for president. Does anyone see this conflict of interest as a problem? Previewing a segment from Sunday’s 60 Minutes, Winfrey recounted what happened after her Golden Globes speech, “When there was so much talk about it and Gayle was, like, every day saying, ‘You should think about it. You always say when things show up, you should think about it.’”
On Thursday, CBS This Morning joined ABC’s Good Morning America in applauding openly gay Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy as a “champion for LGBTQ rights” who was using his position on Team USA to blast the Trump administration for failing to “support the LGBT community.”
Songwriter Donovan Woods feels as though country music needs a progressive, pro-LGBTQ update and that fans just need to put up with it. He hopes his new pro-gay music video will get the ball rolling. Might I suggest he find a new line of work.
Actions speak louder than words. As ABC offered Sports Illustrated a platform to defend itself from charges of objectifying women, the network, at the same time, couldn’t air the magazine’s photos without editing or blurring many of them.
On Wednesday, CNN released on Twitter the latest “Facts First” ad aimed at stoking their massive, Jeffrey Zucker-infused egos (disguised as flaunting their supposed journalistic bone fides) that was a clear shot across the bow for President Trump in their push to prove Russian collusion.
Proving that there’s nothing too small that the media won’t attack the current administration for, Washington Post gossip columnist Emily Heil bashed the Vice President for his Valentine’s Day gift choice, in an article in today’s Post.
CNN’s New Day spent the majority of their show Thursday morning discussing the tragic school shooting in south Florida that has left 17 dead and injured more than a dozen others. As usual, the co-anchors repeatedly crossed the line back and forth between activism and journalism; a practice that has become quite common in 21st century media.
