CBS has a strange way of marking Valentine’s Day. On the Sunday after the romantic dinners and the flowers on Wednesday, Sunday Morning linked the day to a deep study of marital infidelity. Reporter Tony Dokoupil found an expert and two cheating wives who explained without any guilt their cheating ways. CBS insisted we needed to “rethink our attitude” on the sin of adultery.
While she used to shy away from the word, one big name star is now embracing the term “feminism.” On Sunday, Matter of Fact With Soledad O'Brien aired an interview with actress Charlize Theron and Kweku Mandela, the grandson of Nelson Mandela. While speaking, Theron addressed equal pay and insisted that she was a “fucking feminist.”
Despite calling themselves feminists, liberals constantly slam conservative women without remorse. On Wednesday’s episode of Comedy Central’s anti-business show, Corporate, “The Long Meeting,” Hampton Deville Board of Directors member Bill Hathaway (Fred Willard) announces, “So that concludes the story of how I got laid by Margaret Thatcher. Great at sex but...terrible at politics.
HBO's Here and Now continues to try to set the gold standard for being the most obnoxiously woke show on television. In its premiere last week, we met the main family, the Bayer-Boatwrights, who are made up of an academic, some kind of a counselor (we will see more in this week's episode), and their children adopted from around the world in a show of how "progressive and evolved they are."
New York Times reporter Katrin Bennhold’s front-page story commemorating the fall of the Berlin Wall, “Still Chipping Away at a Wall Demolished a Generation Ago,” contained an incredibly ignorant paragraph about the freedoms of East German women: "Eastern women, who were part of the work force and with free child care, were more emancipated than their western sisters...." But it's far from the worst Times story celebrating the former East Germany.
The media’s constant fawning over the “intersectionality” of the Women’s March feels like it will never end.
Neither will the consistent evasion of the fact that one of the founders, Linda Sarsour, sabotaged her claim to feminism through her defense of sharia law. At the BET Social Awards on February 11, CNN’s Symone Sanders presented the founders of the Women’s March with the Social Movement Award. Their acceptance speech, masked by supposed “unity,” highlighted the exclusionary tendencies of intersectional feminism.
ABC is apparently so devoted to touting liberal icons, that they will promote a competitor’s documentary if it’s about their mutual hero. On Good Morning America, February 9, anchor George Stephanopoulos and Nightline co-host JuJu Chang gushed over Netflix’s new documentary on feminist attorney Gloria Allred, which was released today, saying they “can’t wait” to watch it, before sharing their own interview with the infamous attorney.
It’s one thing to attempt to reform Hollywood’s apparently chronic abuse of women. It’s another thing to say that due process shouldn’t apply to the accused. But feminist actress/activist Amber Tamblyn has decided that people accused of assault or rape are “suspect until proven innocent.”
If you ever wonder what the crazed feminists in Hollywood are up to these days, wonder no more. They’re raising money for abortions. On February 1, the Lady Parts Justice League, (founded by Daily Show creator Lizz Winstead) held a “telethon,” called Life Is a Living Nightmare: A Telethon to Fix It.
Just when you thought Hollywood couldn’t sink any lower in their depravity and twisted attempts at humor, especially when it comes to child actors, along comes Tuesday’s episode of TBS’s The Detour, “The Stop.” Which were my thoughts exactly as I watched. “Please, for the literal love of God, make it stop.”
The Intercept's Peter Maass hyped on Saturday that the war film 12 Strong is just latest example of "problematic" Hollywood productions that "model a cliched form of masculinity that veers from simplistic to monstrous." Maass, a former journalist for the New York Times, lobbied the movie industry to "turn away from war movies that...perpetuate a model of masculinity that does violence to us all." He later asserted that many of the successful military-centric films were "masculine nonsense."
In a Politico podcast released on Friday morning, U.S. Ambassador for the United Nations, Nikki Haley, tore into Trump gossip book author Michael Wolff’s “disgusting,” “highly offensive,” and sexist rumor that alleged without evidence that she’s been sleeping with President Trump. Haley deemed Wolff’s behavior to be a “rampant” pattern spreading “lies” “for money and power.”
