Conservatives & Republicans
The liberal media would do anything to protect former President Obama’s legacy, even siding with the radical Islamic regime in Iran apparently. That seemed to be the case Tuesday evening as all three of the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored Iran announcing they planned to ramp up their uranium enrichment program during their evening broadcasts. There was also a report by the New York Times that said the Iranians had recently completed construction of a “centrifuge assembly center.”
We've come a long way from harmless playground jibes like “your mother wears combat boots,” to those of today from the likes of Samantha Bee and other leftist “entertainers” who say things about President Trump and his family that are so vulgar they can't be printed in a newspaper or quoted on television.
If politicians are the most self-centered group of people in America, the news media is a close second. That pompousness was on display during the Tuesday edition of CNN’s The Situation Room as a segment was dedicated to political analyst April Ryan shouting at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over the national anthem protests by NFL players. Also in that segment, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon suggested that it was “fake patriotism” to simply believe in standing for the Star-Spangled Banner.
Tuesday’s White House Press Briefing was fraught with tension over issues such as EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, North Korea, and trade, but the primary topic was the President’s less-than-factual dispute with the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles amid the NFL’s national anthem dispute. American Urban Radio Networks correspondent and CNN political analyst April Ryan rudely bought the briefing to a halt and got into a shouting match with noted adversary/White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Here’s a newsflash for conservatives: Scientists in Australia have completed a recent study showing that people with an anti-gay bias tend to exist at the lower end of the intelligence spectrum. In other words, if you’re not down with gay and everything that goes with it, not only are you less open-minded, but you’re a big dum-dum too.
Women aren’t having kids because of the president – according to one “motherhood clarity” therapist. On May 31, The Washington Post weighed in on the “child-free life” and “Why so many American women are deciding not to have kids.” Inside the piece, columnist Petula Dvorak outlined multiple reasons, including President Trump.
On Tuesday, NBC’s Today show was the only network morning show to interview Colorado baker Jack Phillips, the Christian business owner at the center of Monday’s Supreme Court ruling in favor of his refusal to create a wedding cake for a gay couple, in violation of his religious convictions. While the broadcast deserves credit for giving Phillips and his attorney a platform to discuss the case, the hosts used the opportunity to interrogate their guests with slanted questions.
Reacting to Monday’s massive, 7-2 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in favor of the Christian bakers with Masterpiece Cakeshop, CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin went into full-blown panic mode, claiming that “[t]his is certainly an invitation to people who discriminate against gay people” and opens the door to Jim Crow-like discrimination against interracial and interfaith couples.
Religious liberty advocates scored a victory on Monday as the Supreme Court, by a 7-2 decision, ruled that a Christian baker could not be compelled to bake a cake for a gay marriage. MSNBC immediately offered a nothing-to-see-here tone, throwing some cold water on the win. MSNBC Live host Hallie Jackson asked a legal analyst: “Do you believe that religious liberties advocates will try to run a victory lap here?”
Over several days since Thursday, the same MSNBC that ignored reports of some Democratic members of Congress having ties to Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, have been working in overdrive to highlight a handful of white supremacist political candidates who are running for office as Republicans but most likely will never be elected.
Former President Bill Clinton appeared with co-author James Patterson on CBS News Sunday Morning to promote their new book The President Is Missing were the book deals with a cyber-attack and impeachment. While they were there, humorist and correspondent Mo Rocca questioned Clinton on the media’s coverage of President Trump and compared it to the coverage of President Obama. Clinton admitted the press loved Obama but suggest the press would be harsher if Trump were a Democrat.
In light of Roseanne Barr’s racist Tuesday morning tweet, ABC cancelled the revival of its 80’s/90’s sitcom Roseanne, starring Roseanne Barr and John Goodman, after only one season despite it having fetched 18 million viewers for its premiere and been renewed for another season.
