New York Times’ reporter Jennifer Schuessler provided the latest entry in the paper’s strange admiration for left-wing dictators, and those “intellectuals” that admire them. Tribute to Castro-loving Communist Angela Davis on the front of Wednesday’s Arts page, “The Davis Papers: Harvard Gets Them – Angela Davis’s personal archive traces her evolution from obscurity to activist.” Schuessler gushed, "Now she has achieved canonization of a more scholarly sort."
During a report for Sunday’s NBC Nightly News on Iran marking the 39th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, correspondent Ali Arouzi fretted that “all is not well in the Islamic Republic” as he observed: “The anniversary, usually marked with widespread displays of anti-Americanism, muted, with only a few U.S. flags burnt in protest.”
We’re only one episode away from finishing the first season I Love You, America With Sarah Silverman, and the end can’t get here fast enough for me. Until then, we still must suffer through yet another idea Sarah Silverman deems meaningful or just politically advantageous. This week’s concept involves the frightening white nationalism of…flying the American flag.
SEAL Team on CBS is starting to become a reliably pro-American, pro-military show in a television landscape that doesn't give us much to enjoy. In the October 25 episode "Collapse," the drama portrayed American service members respectfully as those doing good in the world and liberals as, well, ridiculous.
In his lead National section story for Wednesday’s New York Times, race-issues reporter John Eligon took on the spate of National Football League players protesting the National Anthem, at the apparent instigation of President Trump. But far from applying a balanced take on a movement embraced by the racial and social justice left, Eligon went further to the left to attack the protests as being watered down by whites, even becoming the latest victim of capitalism: “Protests Start a Dialogue, But About What, Exactly? -- Concern That Focus Is Moving Away From Racism.”
Appearing during MSNBC’s 9 a.m. ET hour on Tuesday, political analyst Steve Schmidt was completely unhinged as he launched into a tirade against President Trump. Outraged over the President’s criticism of NFL players disrespecting the National Anthem, Schmidt lashed out with this hysterical declaration: “And what Donald Trump is doing here is as terrible a thing, and maybe the most terrible thing, that has ever been done to this country by a President of the United States. Despicable doesn’t begin to describe it.”
While NBC’s Today hailed NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a hero last year over his refusal to stand during the National Anthem, on Monday, the morning show was aghast at President Trump’s criticism of such protests. The broadcast hyped a “firestorm of resistance” against Trump across the NFL on Sunday.
As touted in the news recently, the April 10th episode of ABC’s Quantico, titled “ODYOKE,” worked a fictional vote in Congress on a Muslim registry bill into the script. Quantico writers are determined not to miss an opportunity to take a swipe at President Trump this season and the Muslim registry storyline is a clear reference to the president's so-called Muslim travel ban.
As the Hollywood Left is wont to do, Tuesday night’s episode of NBC's Taken was filled with lessons on judgment and prejudice from a liberal point of view. In an effort to impart the lesson that not all Muslims are terrorists, Taken takes an extreme left turn that defies all logic and reason by shifting the blame for terrorism onto white, male, government officials.
Appearing as a guest on Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi of the Bravo network bizarrely alluded to America having committed "crimes" and "felonies" against other countries as she lamented that people abroad have lost feelings of "goodwill" they used to feel toward the U.S,, while she and host Joy Reid fretted over the Donald Trump administration's crackdown on illegal immigration. Lakshmi: "Regardless of whatever crimes or felonies that Americans -- or the American government or policy -- may be, you know, guilty of doing abroad, America still has a lot of -- or had a lot of goodwill because, you know, there was always this example of being a hopeful, tolerant place."
Jorge Ramos' tirade at the 2017 edition of Univision's annual entertainment awards show raised more questions than it answered. And the time has come for one of the nation's leading television anchor-activists to answer those questions.
