Friday’s New York Times showed the paper again trying to falsely link the publicly harmful anti-vaccination movement to political conservatism. Reporters Julie Bosman, Patricia Mazzei, and Dan Levin drew the strands together for “Celebrities, Conservatives and Immigrants in Disparate Groups of Skeptics.” It’s not the first time the paper has tried to falsely smear “conservatives” as the main thrust of anti-vaccine action, even though the most recent polling on the matter suggests it’s more of a left-wing cause. Amazingly for a story whose headline blasts “conservatives” for being anti-vaccine, the first sentence features Robert F. Kennedy Jr. from the famous uber-liberal Democrat political family.
Former Maryland Congressman John Delaney was on The View Thursday, joining the crowd of Democrat presidential candidates who have come on the show. Despite espousing many typical liberal, big government policies, he framed himself as a centrist Democrat, noting areas where his party was being extreme, fiscally. While Sunny Hostin pressed the Democrat from the left at every turn, even Joy Behar admitted she wasn’t for one of the party’s more radical bills.
The third installment of NBC’s so-called “Big Idea” series, which they already admitted was designed to only help Democratic 2020 candidates, featured floundering New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and her bid to implement a national paid family leave program.
To round out their political coverage Monday evening, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt boasted of the network’s new series “My Big Idea”, which they planned to expand on as the 2020 Democratic primary continued. Holt made it very clear that the series was only open to the “big ideas” that were being put forward by the leftist field. “And tonight, we're launching a series with our Harry Smith to let candidates tell you the idea they say separates them from the vast field of contenders. We're calling it ‘My Big Idea’, and first up, Senator Bernie Sanders.”
Disney CEO Bob Iger has weighed in on Georgia’s “Heartbeat Bill,” threatening to pull the company’s film productions from the state if Governor Kemp’s Bill goes into law. It just goes to show that no matter how many theme parks Disney creates or beloved childhood franchises it churns out, its true calling is maximizing stock price, innocent babies be damned. Oh, the irony!
There was a time when health care technology meant expensive new machines that only hospitals could afford. The costs were so enormous that only insurance companies could pay for their use and insurance bureaucrats only grudgingly allowed people to get needed tests and treatment. Today, however, tech is putting health care tools in the hands of individual Americans at amazingly reasonable costs. The transformation brought about by the new technology will fundamentally disrupt every aspect of the health care industry.
Presidential contenders are in a battle to out give one another. Senator Elizabeth Warren proposes a whopping $50,000 per student college loan forgiveness. Senator Bernie Sanders proposes free health care for all Americans plus illegal aliens. Most Democratic presidential candidates promise free stuff that includes free college, universal income, "Medicare for All" and debt forgiveness.
There were apparently still a few Democrats that refused to promote the barbaric act of abortion. During their Monday evening newscasts, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News seemed irritated that Democrats in the state of Louisiana were set to enact their own heartbeat law, effectively keeping up momentum for the pro-life legislation sweeping the country.
When lefties get upset, accusation of, or allusions to, racism can start flying. The left is very upset about states passing laws restricting abortion. On cue, Daily Beast writer Barrett Holmes Pitner composed a piece claiming that Alabama’s recent pro-life legislation is borrowed from old pro-slavery America and Jim Crow. The point, ladies, is that the South’s gonna do it again, and this time they’re gonna put “‘y’all back” in chains (hat tip Joe Biden).
Tuesday night, New Amsterdam on NBC returned with another episode and more liberal propaganda. It’s no secret that New Amsterdam shamelessly promotes socialized medicine, especially with Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) as the medical director. Time and time again the show has tried to promote even more liberal policies in an already publicly funded hospital despite the setbacks they may cause.
CBS’s SEAL Team must not be listening to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The series has now aired not one but two episodes criticizing the Department of Veterans Affairs. Even this show about the best special operators in the world realizes that the government isn’t the best solution for everything.
The Simpsons went after President Donald Trump and pushed hard for progressive policy in season 30 episode 21 titled “D’oh Canada” which aired on Sunday night.
