Hollywood loves to make a villain out of business and they’ll be doing it again with some of the new fall TV shows for 2019. NBC’s upcoming legal drama Bluff City Law will verbally indict companies and “greedy capitalists” as evildoers who buy judges. The Fox show neXT, which Deadline described as a “fact-based thriller,” will expose the dangers of technology as they portray Silicon Valley creating artificial intelligence so smart it becomes a menace. The “dramedy” Filthy Rich, also on Fox, will promote negative stereotypes not only of wealthy people, but of Christians.
Hollywood’s hot new trend is to boycott the entire state of Georgia because Governor Brian Kemp signed a bill making it harder to kill unborn babies. Following her threatened boycott in March, one-time actress and full-time shrew Alyssa Milano had already convinced David Simon, creator of The Wire, to join the fad. Now there are few other big celebs getting in on the action.
Maybe GLAAD, Hollywood’s gay lobby, can find some satisfaction in the fact that through all their grandstanding, more gay representation has found its way into the film industry. Turns out, 2018 was one of the best years in the history of gya representation in movies, but as we all have come to expect, GLAAD’s never one to shut up. Yes, there was ample gay visibility, but what about transgender visibility?
An Atlantic article by Staff Writer Emma Green titled, “The Impossible Future of Christians in the Middle East,” is something of a small miracle. Where most liberal outlets are reluctant to mention, let alone explore, the plight of Christians in Muslim-majority nations, Green lays out what’s at stake: “The precarious state of Christianity in Iraq is tragic on its own terms. The world may soon witness the permanent displacement of an ancient religion, and an ancient people.”
Basketball legend-turned-activist Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is calling for abortion supporters to inflict economic pain on the states affirming human life with new laws. Writing for The Hollywood Reporter, the former Lakers' "showtime" star now says it's "boycott time." Abdul-Jabbar accuses President Donald Trump and white Christians of reducing women to "baby incubators."
The liberals at PolitiFact are so touchy about President Trump mocking Democrats that they slap a "Mostly False" on things that just make them angry. Take this statement: "Don't forget Biden deserted you. He's not from Pennsylvania. I guess he was born here, but he left you, folks." PolitiFact admits Biden hasn't lived in Scranton since 1953...that's 66 years ago. But it's "false" because you can't "desert" a state when your family moves to another state when you're in grade school. Biden could have returned to Pennsylvania to live, but never did.
It is no secret that Joe Scarborough has a profound antipathy for President Trump and the millions of Americans who voted for him.

Facebook, Google, and Twitter are ready to admit that everyone is biased, including their own employees. At a May 22, hearing in front of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, representatives from the major tech companies were grilled about algorithms and shadowbanning. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) doubled down on the topic of algorithms, asking if the people who created the algorithms were biased.
The co-hosts of The View went overboard as usual in decrying a Trump administration decision to postpone the release of the new twenty-dollar bills depicting abolitionist hero, Harriet Tubman. After Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin explained the bills wouldn’t come out till 2028 to deal with counterfeiting issues, the hosts slammed it as an obvious racist “dog whistle” to Trump supporters.
Palmer Luckey’s firing proves that even the most talented of tech wizards can be purged for wrongthink. The founder of Oculus and a former Facebook employee, Luckey joked in a May 22 CNBC interview about his 2017 firing: “I gave $10,000 to a pro-Trump group, and I think that’s something to do with it.”
With Michael Avenatti embroiled in yet another legal scandal, it’s worth remembering the incredible amount of friendly coverage that he received from liberal television outlets last year. In addition to landing an incredible 254 live television appearances in a single year, the notorious lawyer who previously represented porn star Stormy Daniels received considerable praise from cable and network hosts alike throughout 2018.
On Tuesday's CBS Evening News, a report filed by Nikki Battiste promoted the alleged need for stricter safe storage laws that would threaten criminal punishment for parents who do not safely store their guns within certain guidelines. Even though researchers like John Lott have found that such laws are more of a problem for gun owners than a help, the report only devoted 21 seconds out of an almost two and a half minute report to giving some of the NRA's point of view against such laws.
French rapper Nick Conrad’s new song is the textbook definition of hatred and discrimination against a country and its people. The most outrageous thing about it is not in the lyrics, which include disgusting lines about “burning” and “fucking” France, but the fact that such hateful and explicit trash has been deemed worthy of staying on Facebook and Instagram while internet personalities like Laura Loomer and Paul Joseph Watson have been removed for “far less violent content.”
Reacting to yesterday's short-lived meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the Morning Joe panel hurls a string of insults at President Trump: "stinks, complete idiot, pathetic."
