Al Gore is still making his rounds on the late night shows to promote his new climate change movie, An Inconvenient Sequel, but all the media wants to talk to him about is Donald Trump. He appeared on James Corden’s The Late Late Show early Thursday morning, where Corden tried to bait Gore into bashing Trump. This came after Corden did an anti-Trump musical number, bashing the president for the transgender military ban.

 

Wrapping up his coverage of Friday’s early morning Senate vote that at least temporarily scuttled GOP hopes for a repeal of ObamaCare, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams could not help but admire Senator John McCain’s decision to align himself with Democrats, calling him and two other GOP defectors a “profile in courage,” and he welcomed the vote against the Republican bill as “the people of this country... getting their voices heard.”


On Wednesday, NPR's All Things Considered sided with opponents of President Donald Trump's proposal to bar transgender people from serving in the military. Host Kelly McEvers interviewed veteran Jordan Blisk, who served in the Air Force Reserve before then-President Barack Obama's administration lifted the previous ban in June 2016, and came out as transgender after leaving the military. However, McEvers failed to mention that Blisk is now a LGBT activist in Colorado. The public radio program also didn't bring on any supporters of the new policy.


TBS Full Frontal host Samantha Bee appeared at the "Ozy Fest" in New York City and jumped into a rant for government-mandated family leave and health care, like they offer in her native Canada. She also said comedians can't be blamed for widening the political divide. The public should blame... Fox News. 


Well, I’ll say this about Spike’s The Mist, I was only half-right about my recent prediction. Instead of a molesting priest, we get the fanatic of a violent one threatening heretics. I would say that’s a pleasant surprise, but what we get is hardly a pleasant substitute. Come to think of it, it’s not even a surprise.


Thursday’s NBC Nightly News featured one of the classic tricks in the liberal media playbook as Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt declined to disclose the liberal activist history of a woman in her story about the Senate push to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Prior to the live shot at the end of her segment, Hunt explained that “all the uncertainty” about ObamaCare “worries Theresa Bohannan” because “[h]er son was born with a rare heart condition.”


When the establishment press isn't criticizing center-right outlets as fact-challenged and not objective, it's dismissing them as irrelevant and unimportant. If that's really the case, that would lead one to wonder why a seasoned New York Times reporter was bothering to look at a story published at Breitbart.com, let alone tweeting his breathtaking ignorance about the content of that report's first two sentences.


It’s not just the TV networks that are ignoring or downplaying the Imran Awan-Debbie Wasserman Schultz scandal. The nation’s newspapers are barely getting their feet wet. A quick Nexis search shows The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times have yet to report it, while The Washington Post and USA Today just reported smaller stories in Thursday’s papers. ABC, NBC, MSNBC, NPR, and the PBS NewsHour were missing as of Thursday. 


Amidst all the warranted coverage of White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci’s disturbingly vulgar tirade about Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News ignored the poignant White House event honoring the law enforcement officers who responded to the June 14 congressional GOP baseball shooting.


It has been announced today that Showtime has given the go ahead for a 10 episode series of animated shows about President Donald Trump to air this Fall. So will this cartoon series be done in the spirit of good fun such as the way Vaughn Meader satirized John F. Kennedy in his First Family album over 50 years ago? Well, the fourth sentence of this Variety article reveals that probably won't be the case. 


Following the overreactions on July 26 to President Trump’s twitter announcement, host of The Late Late Show James Corden decided to express his anger in a more musical fashion. Sung to the tune of the 1964 classic “L-O-V-E” by Nat King Cole, Corden made several swipes at Trump. “POTUS thinks it’s unsavory/Patriots who know real bravery/Trump’s got hate for me and you,” he crooned.


Media Research Center research director Rich Noyes dropped by the Thursday edition of FBN’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast and showcased the latest example of the liberal media’s refusal to cover both the latest Trump controversies and positive stories like Wednesday’s Foxconn jobs announcement.


Remember when late night TV shows were supposed to be funny and entertaining? No more. Late Night With Seth Meyers writers filed on stage July 26 to recite a collective attack against the President Trump and his daughter, Ivanka. And of course, the liberal media – from HuffPost to Rolling Stone joined in their ‘group troll.’


One of the core ideological issues that determines a person’s political philosophy is the degree to which one believes that unfavorable external circumstances can be overcome via persistence and hard work. If an individual believes that America is a place so racist, so intractably bigoted that few, if any, minorities will escape from its systemically corrupt clutches, it naturally follows that one would advocate for governmental redistribution of wealth from the benefactors of Rawlsian chance to those with an almost Calvinist predestination for serfdom. Conversely, those who recognize, to varying degrees, the agency of people in adverse socioeconomic conditions to overcome such obstacles will be more likely to advocate for less government involvement in wealth redistribution. In other words, it is a point of gigantic political contention.


Thursday on ABC’s The View, the hosts had on former Ferguson police chief, Tom Jackson, to talk about his new book about his experience in Ferguson during the Michael Brown shooting. During the conversation, Jackson tried to dispel many of the media myths concerning the shooting of Brown, but instead he got an earful from hosts Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg about the credibility of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.”
