When a sitting congresswoman sides with our enemy over our own country, is that not newsworthy? Apparently the networks didn’t think so. They ignored a tweet sent Thursday by Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar, where she blamed America for Iran shooting down one of our military’s drones. The networks, even cable news, were nowhere to be found Thursday evening or Friday morning.
The Washington Post issued a Planned Parenthood press release on Thursday, badly disguised as a "news article." Ariana Eunjung Cha's dispatch was loaded with PP boilerplate. The Trump team has a "gag rule" that hurts the "women's health care provider" and "endangers the health of millions of women." Millions of babies are not to be considered.
Madonna is out with her first album in 4 years, which means it’s time for her to wear something ridiculous, like a sequined eye patch, and say outrageous things for publicity, like that Jesus would agree with abortion.
In the TV age, there's never been a more dramatic defeat for the media than on Election Day 2016. Despite the press and their pollsters guaranteeing a win for Hillary Clinton, the unthinkable occurred when Donald Trump was elected President, which sent shock waves through the liberal media. Rather than learn from their errors and aproach the public with more humility, the media continue to say the nastiest things about President Trump and every voter who put him in office.
Now-ex-staffer Jackson Cosko was sentenced to four years in prison on Wednesday on five felony counts. And in over 24-hours since the sentencing, none of the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) covered it on their flagship morning and evening newscasts.
James Poniewozik, the New York Times’ chief TV critic, ran a fevered attack on three recent works -- two television shows and a play -- that render media mogul Rupert Murdoch and his outlets, including the Roger Ailes-led Fox News, in unflattering terms. The headline hid the inflammatory nature of the text: “Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes Gave Us Fox. These Shows Try to Make Sense of It All – ‘The Loudest Voice,’ ‘Ink’ and ‘Succession’ map out the influential world the two men created.” With the media and entertainment culture almost monopolized by the left save for Fox News, it’s Fox that somehow represents an ideological danger.
The LGBT blog Outsports and transgender athletes are ridiculing high school girls in Connecticut and their Christian lawyers who filed a Title IX complaint with the Department of Education Office for Civil Rights over the state's transgender policy. Dawn Ennis calls their legal counsel, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a "hate" group.
Defending Joe Biden over his remarks about having worked with segregationist senators, Joe Scarborough says that Franklin Roosevelt did the same, and as a result, "FDR passed Social Security, passed the New Deal and he saved this country and saved poor people like my parents in the Deep South." In fact, the New Deal did nothing to "save the country." The Depression lingered after its adoption and it was only sometime after the beginning of WWII that the emerged from the Depression.
Tuesday’s installment of NBC Nightly News’s pre-debate, Democratic propaganda campaign featured Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and her “Big Idea” to “cancel about 95 percent of student loan debt and to make college, technical school, two-year, four-year all fee-free and tuition-free.” As with the previous 10 of these so-called “Big Ideas” from the 2020 Democratic field, correspondent Harry Smith offered no analytical or expert takes on the Senator’s plan, only some weak questions about the policy in which he let her explain the concerns away.
President Donald Trump infuriated the left again on June 19, when he awarded supply-side economist Arthur Laffer the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The left’s reaction was predictably vicious. An MSNBC analyst called Laffer one of the most “destructive forces” in economics since Herbert Hoover. New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait minced no words about his anger over Laffer’s award ceremony, calling him a “kook” elevated to “metaphysical status” within the Republican Party. He ridiculed Laffer’s theory as “provably untrue” and based on a “fake curve.”
Well, that’s awkward. NBC’s Today celebrated 25 years at Studio 1A in Rockefeller Center on Thursday. The show’s hosts marked the occasion with a snazzy montage full of memories... except for one. Missing completely from the retrospecitve was disgraced former co-host Matt Lauer.
With federal investigations looming and President Donald Trump making statements in favor of regulation, Big Tech companies like Google, Amazon, and Facebook are being forced to weigh their options.
In the wake of terror attacks, Big Tech companies are being taken to task over content policing. The June 26 hearing before the House Homeland Security Committee will feature testimonies from Facebook, Twitter, and Google’s parent company, Alphabet. According to Bloomberg Law’s coverage, Facebook’s head of global policy management Monicka Bickert, Twitter’s senior strategist for public policy Nick Pickles, and Google’s global director of information policy Derek Slater are going to testify.
With Planned Parenthood back in court trying to prevent the state of Missouri from revoking its abortion license, the crew of CBS This Morning went to bat for the abortion provider on Thursday, highlighting their defiance of a state regulation requiring a second pelvic exam 72 hours before an abortion and uncritically repeating President Leana Wen's talking points.
On Thursday, ABC’s Good Morning America surprisingly devoted a nearly four-minute report to actual investigative journalism, examining corruption allegations against Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. At the top of the morning show, fill-in co-host David Muir promoted the upcoming story: “...the ABC news investigation into Biden’s son....Did Hunter Biden and his firm make millions overseas in countries where his father, the former vice president, acted as the top U.S. diplomat?”
