When the cool kids sneer at you, do you wear it like a badge of honor? Mike Lindell should. He’s the “MyPillow Guy,” the TV-friendly entrepreneur and enthusiastic Trump supporter. He’s also a former drug addict who got himself clean and turned into an outspoken evangelical Christian.
What is it with liberal outlets and their apparent virtue-signaling obsession with eliminating meat from our diets? The New York Times published a wacky op-ed headlined “The End of Meat Is Here.” In the sub-headline, author Jonathan Safran Foer grumbled that “If you care about the working poor, about racial justice, and about climate change, you have to stop eating animals.” [Emphasis added.] Only leftists like Foer would know how to make that nonsensical connection.
Some journalists like to lecture you. But they don't necessarily like it when you expose their hypocrisy. That dynamic was on display on Memorial Day as MSNBC journalist Cal Perry reported live from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. When he pointed at someone who was not wearing a face mask, the man shot back, "Including the cameraman."
Twitter has long threatened to label certain tweets from President Donald Trump. Now it finally has used the liberal media to fact-check his tweets. A tweet from the President that discussed mail-in ballots was labeled as an “unsubstantiated claim” by Twitter. When Trump tweeted, “There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent.” A bright blue sentence was added by the social media platform at the bottom of the tweet, which said “Get the facts about mail-in ballots.”
In a time where traditional media are biased and unhinged and men’s magazines embrace feminism, The New York Times discovered that men are seeking their news elsewhere. And millions have found it in former “The Fear Factor” host, Mixed Martial Arts commentator, comedian, and now podcaster whose popular interviews have replaced the role of television news for many Americans.
The 2020 ESPN "ESPY Awards" show this summer is bound to be a politically charged event. How can it not be with Megan Rapinoe, Sue Bird and Russell Wilson hosting the remote event? It's an election year, all three of these Seattle area progressives have a history of political activism and the ESPYs have provided "home field" for the likes of Michelle Obama and Caitlyn Jenner in the past.
Hear that? The inane chirping? That means it's quadrennial celebrity cicada season again. Every four years some of the great, the near great and the not great (yet all unquestionably ingrates) from the entertainment world emerge to threaten to deprive us of their presence if we vote incorrectly.
Three months ago, Former CBS News President Van Gordon Sauter appeared at a California forum and declared that “liberal bias is increasingly embedded in the journalism as a result of the Trump experience and it’s accelerating and deepening the wedge in our society.” Sauter doubled down in his analysis in an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal Monday; titled “The ‘Liberal Leaning’ Media Has Passed Its Tipping Point.”
It’s official: The coronavirus is a partisan weapon for the New York Times. The paper deployed it in its co-lead story slot Monday -- Memorial Day -- “Virus at Its Deadliest in the Strongholds of Democrats.” The online version of that headline was even blunter: “The Coronavirus Is Deadliest Where Democrats Live.”
Tuesday’s Dana Bash-Joe Biden interview was embarrassing and pathetic to begin with for CNN, but things got even dumber right after it first aired. On The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer spent over six minutes boasting of how not only was it an “excellent interview” with Biden’s “very strong words” for President Trump, but how socially distanced the interview was.
Hypocrisy must have been the main course at CNN host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo’s Memorial Day barbeque, because he was serving up leftovers during Tuesday’s edition of Cuomo PrimeTime. Cuomo, the guy who beclowned himself by twirling around giant cotton swabs and flouted his coronavirus quarantine when he knew he was infected, bashed President Trump with accusations of playing games and those who didn’t want to wear masks when they went outside. He also questioned the intelligence of the White House press secretary.
Naturally, Trump-hating and fear-loving CNN served Tuesday as Joe Biden’s first in-person interview since the coronavirus pandemic began and, right on cue, chief political correspondent Dana Bash fulfilled her role as a real-life Bashful, liberal foot solider, and citizen of Zuckerville. Between softball questions and assisting Biden in touting anti-Trump conspiracy theories, it was mission accomplished.
HBO’s dramedy Insecure has long been known for its focus on race and racism. You’re likely to hear the words “white people” several times per episode, and never in a good way. But Sunday’s episode “Lowkey Trippin’” turned things up a notch by claiming that “white people want…to divide us.” And, just for kicks, they also threw in a profane jab at President Trump.
The liberal media clutch their pearls when President Trump levels criticisms, nicknames, and insults against his political opponents. But when it’s the other way around, they celebrate it. A couple of hours before the evening newscasts aired on ABC, CBS, and NBC, presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden took part in a softball interview on CNN. What piqued the interest of the broadcast networks was Biden lashing out at the President for criticizing his Memorial Day mask, calling Trump “an absolute fool.”
CNN political analyst and Politico writer Ryan Lizza decided during Monday’s briefing to follow girlfriend Olivia Nuzzi from April 27 and ask a snarky question about how many deaths would be acceptable to the White House in terms of President Trump’s reelection prospects. The only difference here was Nuzzi tried to trap Trump whereas Lizza’s verbal grenade was lobbed at White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. And as has been the case during McEnany’s tenure, the reporter in question became incensed.
