The Young Turks are so far left, even liberals call them “left-leaning,” and they’re on a quest to become the “largest news network period.”
“Left-leaning political video network The Young Turks has raised $20 million in its latest and biggest funding round,” The Huffington Post reported on Aug. 8. Variety also called the network left-wing.
An upcoming tough-on-crime vigilante movie is now Exhibit A of “alt-right” racism, according to the reliably left-wing U.K. newspaper The Guardian. The remake of the popular 1974 action-family vengeance-drama Death Wish, with Bruce Willis cast in Charles Bronson’s shoes as the tormented hero, is scheduled for release around the Thanksgiving holiday. But is it just a fascist alt-right fantasy? Guardian critic Graeme Virtue piece was one long piece of virtue-signaling and throat-clearing, an apparent requirement for movie critics these days, not even getting around to addressing the entertainment value of a movie with content that may possibly offend some liberal interest group somewhere (months before it’s even coming out).
The busy and eventful summer for the Trump administration was too much of a calling for NBC’s Saturday Night Live, still between seasons. Which was why, on Thursday night, the network brought back their Weekend Update skit for a half hour long comedy special. The special had some pretty humorous moments. But for good natured people, the show took a dark turn when a bit involving President Trump’s adult sons portrayed Eric Trump as a person with an intellectual disability.
Do you remember when TBS was a nice, family-friendly channel? Not anymore. Last week, on premiere week of “The Guest Book,” Story Two depicted Christians assaulting a woman to force her into baptism and, on the August 10 episode of “The Guest Book” Story Three, they attacked conservatives and pro-lifers, portraying them as both liars and hypocrites.
In two separate addresses to the press on Thursday, President Trump doubled and tripled down on his powerful threats to North Korea. After denouncing the President’s original tough warning of “fire and fury” on Tuesday, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were equally bitter with him after he told them that “if anything maybe that statement wasn't tough enough.”
With all the debate taking place regarding the promises made by Republicans in Congress and the White House to “repeal and replace” the Obamacare system, most of the people in the “mainstream media” have tilted their coverage to support liberals who want to keep in place what is also called the Affordable Care Act.
Not even the left-stream media can keep a good man down. Viciously attacked by liberal sports media in the spring for receiving a minor league baseball contract from the New York Mets, Tim Tebow is now winning them over by proving he is a legitimate professional baseball player. He's also gaining applause for hitting a homer for an ailing boy in Babe Ruthian style.
In a remarkable display of group think on Thursday, all three network morning shows touted North Korea hurling personal insults against President Trump as an act of “defiance” and promoted forced demonstrations in Pyongyang as a “display of unity” from the oppressed people in the authoritarian regime.
ABC News learned that sliming a company can cost a lot of money. An attorney for Beef Products Inc. told CNN Money, BPI was awarded more than $177 million in the settlement of its defamation lawsuit against ABC because its beef was called “pink slime” by the network.
Monday evening, National Public Radio published a tweet about the Google-free speech controversy that raised eyebrows and brought on torrents of ridicule, namely that "some women at the company skipped work today, upset by the leaked memo" written by now-fired software engineer James Damore. It turns out that the basis for the claim is so extraordinarily thin that it shouldn't have been reported.
On MSNBC Live Thursday, host Ali Velshi refused to listen to his guest, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) after he started to give the liberal host an answer he didn’t like. Hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle first asked the member of the Armed Services Committee about Trump’s handling of North Korea’s threat against the U.S. territory of Guam.
As Americans across the country prepare for the upcoming solar eclipse, some in the media have begun to speculate over whether or not there are, in fact, sinister undertones behind its arrival. In a piece for the Atlantic, Ross Anderson described in detail how eclipses were often dreaded by ancient kings and rulers as a foreboding sign of things to come. He then goes on to link this connection back to Donald Trump, warning how the current occupant of the Oval Office “should heed the signs. An eclipse sometimes bodes ill for a king.”
As the Hollywood world celebrates abortion, one Twilight actress is challenging the narrative – by promoting the “miracle” of unborn life. 29-year-old Nikki Reed graced the September cover of Fit Pregnancy while discussing, inside, the pregnancy of her first child with husband Ian Somerhalder (Vampire Diaries).
In the face of a very real threat, Hollywood holds fast to its anti-Trump rhetoric. Because nothing, absolutely nothing, is worse than having Donald Trump as their president. Not even dictator Kim Jong-Un. After the POTUS announced that North Korea would be met with “fire and fury” should they continue to threaten nuclear war, celebrities took to their favorite podium--Twitter--and criticized the president endlessly.
It’s a rare sight when a Hollywood star challenges an argument for abortion. But then, this is an argument so incomprehensible that even the most strident abortion supporters are likely shaking their heads in dismay.
