Now even innocent children’s play is politicized by the liberal media. Univision, the Spanish-language media giant that aspires to be a leader of the liberal media pack, illustrated the problem when it ginned up the “outrage” over little Prince George playing with a water pistol during a family outing to watch one of his Dad’s polo matches.
CBS This Morning on Wednesday did what most media outlets won’t do: The show took a serious look at efforts to arm teachers and other staff as a way to stop school shootings. Reporter Adrianna Diaz explained how Florida’s School safety guardian program will work: “Armed with real guns and real bullets, these everyday people like a minister, former teacher, and retired police officer are training to take down a potential school shooter.”
Rather than hard-hitting journalism, weekend MSNBC anchor Joy Reid routinely allows soft answers and vague replies from her liberal guests. An interview on Sunday was no exception, when the AM Joy host asked Democrat Lucy McBath, congressional candidate for Georgia’s 6th district, questions about her stance on gun control.
Having enjoyed my 82nd birthday, I am part of a group of about 50 million Americans who are 65 years of age or older. Those who are 90 or older were in school during the 1930s. My age cohort was in school during the 1940s. Baby boomers approaching their 70s were in school during the 1950s and early '60s.
Hollywood liberal Bette Midler has said a lot of dumb things in the past. But her latest tweet may have taken the cake. Blaming the 1968 assassination of Bobby Kennedy on the lack of gun control.
Could the CW’s series about the bulletproof hero Supergirl really be dense enough to do another episode against guns? Not only is it that dumb, but the show takes the gun control rhetoric to a new super-dumb level in their hunt for a potential mass shooter. The June 4 episode “Not Kansas” has a criminal getting his hands on what is described as a “DEO assault rifle” with capabilities equal to those issued to the secret government organization DEO.
On Monday morning, as CNN's New Day show highlighted video of an FBI agent accidentally shooting someone in a Denver nightclub while dancing flamboyantly, co-host Alisyn Camerota suggested that the video undermine's the NRA's argument that "The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," as she discussed the news with co-host John Berman. By contrast, although Fox and Friends also covered the video on Sunday, the morning FNC program on Friday had also shown some of the other side of the gun issue as it highlighted the case of a teenager in Mississippi who used a rifle to fight off a home invasion by a man who was using a hatchet to break in.
On Memorial Day, CNN's New Day seemed to commemorate the occasion partly by bringing on a veteran who is running for Congress as a Democrat as co-host Alisyn Camerota gave New York's Pat Ryan a forum to promote banning what he calls "assault rifles." In contrast with Republican guests who are more likely to experience a back and forth debate, Camerota only mildly pushed back with one contrarian question with no followup when he dodged answering it.
After news broke that, on Thursday, a gunman trying to perpetrate a mass shooting in Oklahoma City was stopped by two armed citizens who used their own guns against him, FNC has given the story a substantial amount of attention while ABC and CBS have also run full stories on the event. But CNN barely touched the story, burying it between 4:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m Eastern in a couple of 25-second briefs Friday morning, while NBC and MSNBC have ignored it entirely.
Educrat (ED-yoo-krat) noun, usually pejorative. A government school official or administrator whose primary function is to spend tax dollars telling other parents what to do with their children. Beltway education bureaucrats abhor families who choose to keep their kids out of public schools -- unless it's to grandstand over gun control. Behold Arne Duncan, longtime pal of Barack Obama and former U.S. Department of Education secretary, who called last weekend for parents nationwide to withdraw students from classes "until gun laws (are) changed to keep them safe."
Two recent Associated Press dispatches have exposed how out of touch two of its reporters are with the dominant Second Amendment-defending views of voters and politicians in Texas. They also are flummoxed that most of the students who survived Friday's school shooting in Santa Fe haven't turned into rabid gun-control advocates.
Despite multiple criticisms for its glorification of suicide, Netflix’s high school drama 13 Reasons Why returned with a brand-new season on May 18. Considering the first season wrapped up everything that happened in the 2007 Jay Asher young adult book it’s based on, everyone’s first question for the show is where it can possibly go next. Rest assured that even without a looming suicide, the series still manages to be just as graphic, ignorant, and annoying as ever.
