As Cory Booker is making it harder and harder to take him seriously, what with all his bloated grandstanding during the Kavanaugh hearing, coupled with the growing weight of his hypocrisy as an admitted groper of women, the Democratic senator has set his sights on political fundraising in Hollywood.
Sarah Silverman’s Hulu show I Love You America has smeared and mocked plenty of conservatives but none more so than President Donald Trump. The kicker of the latest set of smears in the September 27 episode is part one of a three-part interview with the "president."
The new Murphy Brown reboot is reportedly adopting the formula of SNL and every late night comic these days. 1.) Antagonize Trump, 2.) Enjoy media approval and buzz, and 3.) Hope Trump takes the bait and and publicly insults the show, further increasing media buzz and approval. But because those media are designed to be reliant on the attention of enemies to remain popular, it’s about as creative as a kid poking another kid with a stick in the hopes of triggering a whine for the amusement of the other kids.
On Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle claims that "everyone so revered" the Presidency and the U.S. Senate not that long ago, and wonders how long it will take to repair the damage to those institutions that is now being done on a daily basis.
On Friday, during a lengthy live interview with Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden on NBC’s Today show, co-host Craig Melvin repeatedly pushed the idea of the former Vice President running for higher office in 2020. The reporter even told Biden: “You sound like a man who wants to run.”
If you’re a Trump hater, you never have to look very hard for media that confirm your disdain. So why on earth would The Washington Post culture writer Michael Cavna interview forgotten-but-not-gone Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau? Nostalgia for ironic liberal commentary on the Iran-Contra affair?
If you had to think of an adjective that the nation’s mainstream media would most readily apply to supporters of President Trump, what would it be? “Bigoted,” “unintelligent,” and the now-infamous “deplorable” immediately come to mind. Hardly a news cycle seems to churn by where Trump, his policies, and his proponents aren’t categorically smeared.
Breaking: Paul McCartney is still making records. Really. Egypt Station is the former Beatles’ latest, and he’s promoting the heck out of it, with stops at Grand Central Station (where he played a promotion concert), The Jimmy Fallon Show (where he surprised lucky visitors to the 30 Rock building upon elevator doors opening), and scads of magazine interviews.
As the Media Research Center’s Bill D’Agostino and Rich Noyes discovered back in May of this year, the liberal media have a fetish for porn star Stormy Daniel’s lawyer Michael Avenatti (or as Fox News host Tucker Carlson calls him, the “creepy porn lawyer”). Apparently, Avenatti’s plethora of TV appearances meant he met a benchmark for a “serious” run at being president in 2020, according to CNN media reporter Brian Stelter on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources.”
Media personalities and journalists decry over-the-top comments from Donald Trump, but they tolerate them from liberals like director Michael Moore. Moore appeared on The View, Friday and dramatically warned that the United States might not make it to 2020. He declared Trump the “last president” of the United States. ABC donated 16 minutes and 5 seconds to the filmmaker.
