Legendary British actor Patrick Stewart had a bit of a Benedict Arnold moment the other day during French Comic-Con, telling the French audience that he’s “embarrassed” his countrymen voted for Brexit and that he’d much rather be in the EU with them. And here we thought an Englishmen would rather be drawn and quartered than side with the French.

There's no LGBT wing in Baseball's Hall of Fame. Not yet, but don't hold your breath! An LGBT advocate is targeting yet another cultural institution to infiltrate: baseball's Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. Nobody's claiming Ted Williams and Yogi Berra were flaming (not yet), but SB Nation Outsports writer Ken Schultz is saying is the Hall of Fame should add an exhibit to spotlight LGBTQ figures of baseball's past and present.
Following Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd grilling Republican Senator Rand Paul and tossing softballs to Democratic Congressman Jim Himes on Sunday, regarding impeachment, the political panel admitted that House Democrats had an uphill battle in upcoming public hearings. The worried journalists urged liberal lawmakers to “dramatize” those hearings as much as possible and hoped some of the witnesses would cry or become “emotional.”
CBS’s Madam Secretary has been quite bold in its final season. First it starts out with a Hillary Clinton-like female president. Then, it follows up by praising reporters as fighting “the good fight.” Now, it goes one step further in promoting censorship out of fear of causing white nationalism.
This season, Netflix announced with fanfare that its reboot of the classic 1980s cartoon, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, would be introducing its first “non-binary” character, “Double Trouble” (voiced by Jacob Tobia). In a previous season, She-Ra had two gay dads and included a lesbian subtext in one of the cartoon relationships. Post-Obergfell, the LGBT movement has gone full-speed ahead in trying to hypersexualize children and their identity formation.
On Sunday, outspoken race baiter and Sunday MSNBC host Al Sharpton dedicated his weekly “gotcha” segment to a full-throated celebration of Democratic gains in Tuesday’s election. At one point, Sharpton implied that a Trump golf course in Loudoun County, Virginia was somehow in danger now that an obscure critic of the President had been elected to serve on that county’s board of supervisors.
Call NBC's Sunday morning show Meet the Press doesn't really meet what you see any more. Chuck Todd interviewing Democrats sounds more like an episode of Meet the Helper. Todd's interview with liberal Rep. Jim Himes was all about helping Himes discuss how the Democrats need to break through and impeach the president. He asked if Republicans were "sabotaging" the process by making it "a hard process to follow for the public." How dare they offer a different narrative!
On Sunday CNN’s Reliable Sources, which bills itself as a program about “the media world”, failed to spend even a second of airtime on the week’s biggest media story: the revelation that in 2016, ABC allegedly suppressed a story about convicted serial pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Leftist activists lobbying to get Facebook to crack down on right-wing “disinformation” are touting a new study by an international progressive activist group called Avaaz. Columbia Journalism Review noted that leftist Judd Legum is boosting the study, which found “politically relevant disinformation was found to have reached over 158 million estimated views."But what makes this report turn amusing is how they end up complaining about satirical articles with suspiciously silly URLs.
There is perhaps no greater sign that your presidential campaign had a bad day than when CNN says that your immigration plans will "play into a Trump ad" and that you are "essentially saying we have open borders," but that is exactly where Bernie Sanders found himself on Thursday after Inside Politics host John King and Washington Post reporter Seung Min Kim discussed Sanders' radical immigration plans.
During his opening monologue on Friday’s edition of Real Time, host Bill Maher weighed in on Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin’s refusal to concede; dismissing Bevin’s concerns about “irregularities” by sarcastically agreeing with him: “there were reports of black people who have been screwed out of their voting rights voting anyway.” Maher did bluntly crack wise that it was "worth a little blackface" for Ralph Northam’s Virginia Democrats to take over the state legislature in Virginia.
The New Republic posted a false headline on Friday: "The Media Has a Right-Wing Bias. Politico’s Founder Just Admitted It." In a Politico Magazine article dismissing establishment Democrats panicking over Elizabeth Warren and "Medicare For All," John F. Harris actually admitted the idea that the media has a centrist bias -- which also strains credulity.
Trump Derangement Syndrome and college football collided head-on in Tuscaloosa, Alabama this weekend over the president's attendance at the LSU-Alabama game.
