September 30th, 2019 12:46 AM
NCIS: Los Angeles aired its eleventh season Sunday night. The episode "Let Fate Decide" was a compelling watch, given that the team is fighting against ISIS and attempting to stop an all-out war, but of course since the episode involves the Middle East, the writers felt it necessary to include a scene praising the hijab and its wearers, blatantly ignoring the fact that in…

MSNBC Guests Claim MAGA, Trump Are a 'Nazi Symbol'
July 21st, 2019 5:42 PM

On Friday, CNN International (and by simulcast, PBS) host Christiane Amanpour interviewed Matteo Salvini, the deputy prime minister of Italy, whom she found repulsively Trump-like.
