After CBS initially ignored the Iranian people’s uprising against their oppressors from Thursday to Saturday, and then downplayed the murder of two protesters and shootings of others earlier on Sunday, White House Correspondent Major Garrett finally dedicated some sort of significant time to the subject (two minutes 31 seconds) for the network when he was filling in on Face The Nation. Unfortunately, he only brushed over the details and questioned if President Trump should be speaking out in support of the people fighting for freedom.
GQ host and former MSNBC crazy Keith Olbermann joined the ladies of ABC’s The View on Friday and he came locked and loaded with head-shaking statements, chiefly his belief that President Trump has been worse for America than Osama bin Laden. In addition, Olbermann made the stark admission that he owes George W. Bush and John McCain apologies for trashing them and wishes Bush could have had a third term as President instead of Trump being in the White House now.
When Islamic extremists attack a military awards ceremony on a primetime television show, you can bet that within a few episodes it will be made clear that the suicide-vested attackers shouting “Allahu Akbar” will be absolved. The terrorism was just an act, theater for the witnesses and victims meant to distract the populace from the real attackers. In Shooter, the real perpetrator is our very own government—and possibly the United Nations.
It’s been one year since the Lebanese Christian village of Qaa was targeted by eight ISIS suicide bombers – an atrocity that killed five and wounded 32. Had this horror happened in the west, it would have garnered copious media coverage. But the American network news shows didn’t mention it.
Deputy Assistant to the President Sebastian Gorka and CNN New Day co-host Chris Cuomo went head to head Monday morning. Cuomo began the interview by coming out swinging, claiming the President's executive orders on immigration were about targeting Muslims and keeping them out.
For Father Douglas al-Bazi, the terms “genocide” and “persecution” don’t even begin to describe the horrors his people have faced in the Christian community of Northern Iraq. And yet, the media are still reticent to use to g-word. At the World Summit for the Defense of Persecuted Christians earlier last month, al-Bazi talked with MRC Culture about torture, forgiveness, the decimation of his people and the need for action, not words.
The season 3 premiere episodes of NBC’s comedy The Carmichael Show, “Yes Means Yes,” and “Support our Troops,” aired Wednesday night and presented a refreshing change from the liberal agenda driven TV shows we’re used to. The show managed to discuss numerous issues, including rape, Iraq, the troops, and slavery, in a comical yet meaningful way. First things first, both episodes have to attack President Trump, apparently obligatory for entertainment TV nowadays. Although the show has been pretty even handed in the past, the premier episodes took multiple shots at the President.
One would hope that the Washington Post, where the news masthead is "Democracy Dies in Darkness," and whose emails soliciting subscriptions tell recipients that "Democracy needs great journalism," searched far and wide for the most credible person they could possibly find to criticize the foreign-policy impact of how the Trump administration "twists the truth." Apparently, the best person they could find for the job was ... Susan Rice?
As the Hollywood Left is wont to do, Tuesday night’s episode of NBC's Taken was filled with lessons on judgment and prejudice from a liberal point of view. In an effort to impart the lesson that not all Muslims are terrorists, Taken takes an extreme left turn that defies all logic and reason by shifting the blame for terrorism onto white, male, government officials.
What a difference a decade and a different political party make. In November 2005, Ohio GOP Congresswoman Jean Schmidt used the same "I'm just quoting someone else" technique to criticize a fellow Member which Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren employed earlier this week to criticize since-confirmed Donald Trump Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions. Schmidt was vilified to the point where she became the subject of ridicule on Saturday Night Live, while the intemperate Warren has become such an instant heroine on the left that she seems a likely favorably-portrayed subject of a skit this coming weekend, and a future candidate to host the show.
For years, left-wingers would contest my use of the term "open borders lobby" because, they sternly rebuked me, nooooobody in America seriously believes in open borders. Whelp. This weekend, thousands of anti-Trump liberals took to the streets, airports and college campuses chanting "all are welcome" and shrieking "let them in" to protest White House executive orders enforcing our borders.
Just a couple of weeks into his administration, President Trump has used the G-word – something his predecessor did only reluctantly and the media continue to refuse to do. At the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday, Trump mentioned the threat to religious minorities (Christians) under ISIS and in other Muslim majority nations, calling what’s happening “genocide.”
