The podcast industry is trying to get in on Netflix’s game, and by that we mean, yes, they’re trying to set up a premium streaming site, but mostly that they’re attempting to produce content from a bunch of progressive propagandists. The flagship podcast streaming site Luminary has just announced its opening lineup and it’s chock full of all the liberal takes we’ve come to know and loathe. Can’t get enough of allegedly funnyman Trevor Noah? He’s on Luminary. As is feminist Lena Dunham.
In two separate mediums on Wednesday, openly gay actress Ellen Page and actor Tyler Perry did their best to respectively downplay and defend the alleged hate crime hoax concocted, rehearsed, and carried out by Empire star Jesse Smollett with two Nigerian bodybuilders who had been his drug suppliers.
With the Jussie Smollett story having disintegrated into tiny pieces, Saturday’s Greg Gutfeld Show had plenty of material and the eponymous host put it to good use, dubbing Smollett, Sandmann, and former CBS correspondent Lara Logan “the three horsemen of the media apocalypse” while having Kat Timpf stage a faux seminar on how journalists make headlines biased.
Apparently last night’s Oscars weren’t woke enough for some devout lefties. Despite jokes at the expense of Donald Trump, several mentions of the plight of immigrants, and of course some race-baiting from director Spike Lee, Daily Beast writer Kevin Fallon claimed that the show “made the case for its own irrelevancy.”
After Mika Brzezinski teased the upcoming segment with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel by saying the show would ask him about the Jussie Smollett incident, which took place in Chicago, the panel failed to ask Emanuel a single question about the matter.
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.”
So, secretly, dear reader, you wish you were a billionaire. Ahhh to dream. But if instead of dreaming - and working to make your dream come true - you simply signed up for as many credit cards as you could get your hands on and went on a massive spending spree that makes you feel like a billionaire?
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.
Appearing as a panel member on Friday's New Day on CNN, The Beat D.C. managing editor Tiffany Cross claimed that MAGA supporters are to blame for people perceiving them as racist and violent, and fretted that the media have been too apologetic toward them in the aftermath of the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax. As liberal CNN contributor Van Jones thought her analysis was unfair to Donald Trump supporters, he still ended up smearing them by claiming they treat blacks the way Smollett and Cross treated them.
The Oscars are this weekend and while we’re not insisting that you care to tune in — we’d refrain too if we could — maybe it’d be somewhat important to spare you the mystery and inform you that this year’s awards is serving up another seven-layer slice of progressive obsession.
Network television show writers are nothing if not predictable. It seems it is impossible to write an episode of primetime programming without reverting to far right stereotypes in order to portray white men as violent, hateful bigots.
