People in and out of media are having a useful discussion these days: Since it’s clear terrorists like the animals in Christchurch want recognition, what is the appropriate way to cover their outrages? How much information should be available about the murderers and their intentions? When it comes to more routine outrages that happen across the Third World, the question for the media is simpler: Should we cover it at all? Most often, the answer is no.
Like any good liberal disciple, CBS’s Madam Secretary is back preaching about the fire and brimstone of climate change during Lent. The metaphor becomes more apt when the show literally goes against religious believers who dare question the will of scientists and fear-mongering politicians. After all, we’re "past the point of no return" already.
Since we last left off on TBS’s anti-religious comedy Miracle Workers, the show (which centers around our Biblical God) has continued to depict God as moronic, inept and an annoyance to everyone around Him, including the assistant He needs to help Him wipe Himself and operate a microwave oven, among other tasks.
No headline has ever been better matched to the newspaper section in which ran: “The latest Lent challenge for churches: Give up plastic” adorns the Ash Wednesday “Acts of Faith” section in The Washington Post. “Acts of Faith” is heavy on the acting. So is pretending that your environmental virtue-signaling has anything to do with faith.
Jerry Thornton is a New England Patriots' beat writer for the Barstool Sports blog and claims to be a staunch defender of quarterback Tom Brady, Coach Bill Belichick and "all things Patriots." The blog has been accused of sexual harassment and misogyny, so it's not surprising that Thornton would excuse away the recent arrest of team owner Robert Kraft on the charge of soliciting sex. Thornton's fall guy is team chaplain Jack Easterby, who is reportedly leaving the team because of the owner's behavior.
NATIONAL HARBOR, MD — Speaking Friday morning at CPAC to a full-capacity, raucous crowd of Trump supporters (with plenty of anti-Trump and anti-conservative media types in the back), Vice President Mike Pence took a few shots at the left, their media cohorts, and their friends in Hollywood for their refusal to acknowledge the worsening situation at the U.S.-Mexico border and possessing a disdain for religious liberty.
“A 15-year-old girl can get an abortion without her parent’s permission but she can’t see this movie without adult supervision?” Pure Flix Entertainment Executive VP Ken Rather recently said to The Hollywood Reporter. “That’s sad.” Yes it is, but it’s true. The Motion Picture Association of America has slapped an R-rating on Unplanned, a pro-life movie from Pure Flix. The the film’s bloody abortion scenes earned it the rating.
On his eponymous Sunday morning show, CNN host Fareed Zakaria gave a three-minute commentary in which he bemoaned the increasing influence of evangelical Christians in Latin American countries as he fretted that they are thwarting the "progress" of a liberal agenda on abortion and gay rights.
There’s a very good reason 81 percent of Republicans have said they won’t watch Sunday night’s Academy Awards, according to a new poll. Hollywood is the Left Coast base of the anti-Trump resistance and over the years they have made their disdain for conservatives very clear. After all, last year’s Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel joked, “We don't make films for money. We make them to upset Mike Pence.”
How often have we seen Hollywood celebrities praised as courageous for “coming out” and admitting they're gay? Isn't it far more courageous for people to profess their Christian faith? Hollywood is not a tolerant city. Dominated by activist leftists, it is a culture hostile to dissenting views. We see it in its work product. Most movies and television shows are laced with political messages and politically correct symbolism. The heroes almost always are liberal and promote “progressive” values and causes, and conservatives are depicted as morally degenerate hayseeds or villains.
Is it any wonder that American news consumers are at the end of their ropes of patience with the “mainstream media?” Three weeks ago, when I first documented troubling questions, contradictions and doubts about Trump-hating, attention-craving actor Jussie Smollett's absurd hate crime claims, few in the “professional” journalism herd paid heed. Now, with a grand jury investigation on the horizon, everyone's a Johnny-come-lately debunker. And everyone's making excuses: How could we have known? Why would anyone lie about racism? What could have possibly prepared us for such a scandalous swindle?
TBS’s new comedy Miracle Workers sank even lower in its anti-religious bigotry in just its second episode Tuesday night, “13 Days.” The episode features clips of comedian Bill Maher mocking religion and God, as he so often does, which leads God (Steve Buscemi) to pretend it doesn’t hurt His feelings. But He still wants Maher killed. More specifically, He wants to “explode his penis.” You can’t tell at all that this was written by the typically immature, sex-obsessed, faith-bashing leftist Hollywood, can you? /sarcasm. But don't worry, the creator insists the episode carries "more meaning" than just "one big, elaborate dick joke."
