The ascension of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his “angry” supporters still looms large in the liberal psyche, as shown in two otherwise unrelated articles in the January/February 2019 issue of the Atlantic magazine. Contributing editor Peter Beinart saw “The Global Backlash Against Women,” an extremely strained attempt to link international extremists with a feminist backlash. There was also a Kavanaugh link shoehorned into Charles Duhigg’s cover story on political anger: "Witness the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, in which the nominee and his Republican backers in the Senate denounced the proceedings in red-faced diatribes."
Friday night on Fox's Last Man Standing, the Baxters wrung in the Christmas season reminding us what is most important this holiday season. In the episode, “The Gift of the Mike Guy,” the family gathered together to decorate the tree--even Eve (Kaitlyn Dever) came home; however, the most heartwarming thing about this episode was the message they gave about veterans. In addition to reminding us to appreciate the men and women sacrificing so much, including their Christmas for our country, Mike (Tim Allen) gave back in a big way.
Recently, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor of Texas struck down the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a ObamaCare) on the grounds that since the law’s “tax” was currently at zero it was now unconstitutional. Fresh from whining about it on Sunday Today, moderator Chuck Todd grilled Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer during Meet the Press because he and other Democrats confirmed the Judge after President George W. Bush nominated him back in 2007.
The Washington Post hilariously demonstrated on Sunday just how precisely it can lay out a page to bury uncomfortable copy about the Left. On the front page of the Metro section was an article titled "Women's March to unveil a platform." Reporter Marissa J. Lang didn't exactly skip over the march organizers being fans and friends with Rev. Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, but the newspaper's layout organizers precisely tucked away the controversy under what they call the "jump" to an inside page.
Appearing on Saturday's CNN Newsroom and again on New Day Sunday to discuss the international summit on global warming, CNN correspondent Nick Paton Walsh repeatedly fearmongered about the possibility of "catastrophe" in a decade if "drastic" changes are not taken to combat global warming.
Joy Reid guest Jason Johnson warns: "I've heard plenty of black women say, if there's not a black woman on this ticket, I'm not voting." And Reid declares that the Democrats: "can't run two white guys," warning that "women are going to be outraged," and "voters of color are going to say: well, then why are we participating?"
Things got heated on the set of ABC’s This Week on Sunday when Matt Schlapp of the American Conservative Union (and the lone conservative on the panel) clashed with liberal ABC commentator Roland Martin during the Powerhouse Roundtable. And after hearing Schlapp’s opinion about the plethora of investigations into President Trump, host and Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos was so upset he accidentally flung his microphone under the desk.
NBC anchor Willie Geist and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd were miffed during Sunday Today following a recent ruling out of a federal court in Texas declaring the so-called Affordable Care Act (a.k.a ObamaCare) was unconstitutional since the “tax” penalty was a zero dollars. The liberal duo was not having any of it.
The future site of a new stadium for the NFL's Washington Redskins is turning into a real political football, and it's no surprise whose side members of the media are taking. The team's new home could be in D.C., Maryland or Virginia and, like virtually every new stadium in America, likely will get help in the form of corporate welfare. Congress has some say in the matter, and it's complicated. Deadspin staff writer Chris Thompson is convinced the Redskins, sleazy Republicans and the "insanely crooked administration" are conspiring to "screw D.C. residents" on a stadium deal.
During Friday’s edition of The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham slammed the media for coming down with a case of “horrific amnesia” when it comes to their treatment of President Trump’s former “fixer” Michael Cohen. After playing some clips of an interview Cohen did with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Ingraham remarked: “the most remarkable thing about this interview, aside from its transparency, is the idea that the media, they now see Cohen, as some type of, almost an honest broker” before pointing out that “that’s a lot different from the way they viewed him during the campaign days.”
Cameron Cawthorne at the Washington Free Beacon reported that Thursday night's CNN Tonight began with host Don Lemon looking annoyed at Chris Cuomo, asking an exasperated "Why?" as in why he would dedicate 39 minutes of his show to squabbling with Kellyanne Conway. Lemon thinks Conway is a complete waste of time. He obviously thinks porn star Stormy Daniels is a more respectable guest.
Reporter Ron Nixon recounted the story of a Guatemalan girl who died, possibly of dehydration, after her father illegally crossed the U.S. border, in Saturday’s New York Times. But Nixon and his headline writer weaponized the tragedy to immediately put Trump on the defensive: “White House Says It’s Not to Blame for Girl’s Death.” He laid blame directly at the Trump Administration’s feet, while also linking it to Trump’s “zero-tolerance” policy on illegal immigration: "A White House official said on Friday that the Trump administration was not responsible for the death of a 7-year-old Guatemalan girl who died from dehydration last week while in the custody of the Border Patrol."
It’s Christmas. So what else to do but take a serious look at the Guardians of “the manipulation and abuse of truth” by the media. Recently, Time magazine made its annual announcement of its “Person of the Year.” Here is the description of this as provided by the Huffington Post:
Saturday's Today show on NBC spent almost two minutes highlighting an obituary for a suicide victim in Vermont that is part of an effort to encourage new laws that would require a 24-hour waiting period before purchasing a gun to try to prevent suicides. The report made no time for any dissenting point of view and merely served as a promotion for the gun control proposal.
Two can play this “Apology Game,” says rapper/actor Nick Cannon. Cannon scored plenty of headlines by defending his friend, Kevin Hart, following his ouster as Oscar host due to homophobic jokes told nearly a decade ago. Cannon isn’t done speaking out, and making some valid points along the way. He appeared on BuzzFeed News’ “AM to DM” program and addresses a number of hot button issues.
