2020 is shaping up to be worse than 2019 if Netflix has anything to say about it. After releasing a gory fantasy just days before Christmas, Netflix kicked off the New Year with its religious drama Messiah. Let's just say the violence may have been preferable compared to this.
On Monday's CNN Tonight, CNN terrorism analyst Juliette Kayyem accused Rudy Giuliani of "spewing anti-Semitism and hatred" during a discussion of a recent interview he did with reporter Olivia Nuzzi of New York magazine, saying "Soros is hardly a Jew."
The New York Times has gotten itself mired in more controversy and embarrassment of its own making while spending the last week desperately trying to put a negative spin on President Trump’s recent executive order to fight anti-Semitism on college campuses: "The order will effectively interpret Judaism as a race or nationality, not just a religion..." Wrong, said people who actually read the order.
On Monday's Amanpour & Co. show on PBS (also shown on CNN International), host Christiane Amanpour devoted a segment to interviewing the director of a film, titled Incitement, that has come under criticism for suggesting right-leaning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu helped stoke up "incitement" that led to the 1995 assassination of left-leaning Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin by a Jewish extremist.
In the aftermath of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's announcement that the Donald Trump administration was essentially reversing the Barack Obama policy of declaring Israeli settlements as illegal, most of the dominant media have inaccurately claimed that Trump has reversed "decades" or "40 years" of U.S. policy on the matter.
This week, four of the top candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination — Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Julian Castro and Bernie Sanders — gathered at the J Street Conference to explain why the United States ought to pressure the state of Israel to make concessions to terrorists, why the Obama administration was correct to appease the Iranian regime and why American Jews ought to value the opinions of Bernie Sanders over those of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the future of Jewish safety.
In a 60 Minutes interview, Joe Biden attacks Jared Kushner's lack of "credentials" to negotiate Middle East peace, saying he knows "nothing about it." CNN's reaction was essentially to say: you go, Joe! On this morning's New Day, Chris Cillizza twice called Biden's criticism "valid." Even that wasn't enough for Alisyn Camerota, who said: "it’s not only valid. When you hear it coming out of Joe Biden’s mouth, somehow it sounds even more shocking."
More than 30 years after President Ronald Reagan left office, MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude on Sunday was still blaming him for modern economic problems during a discussion of the Democratic presidential race.

Singer and former Disney Channel star Demi Lovato has been the subject of social media backlash lately because her personal and “spiritual” trip to Israel in recent days is not PC enough for woketivists.

On Monday, it was reported that inaugural Women’s March co-chairs Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour were being replaced with 16 new board members. The Washington Post had the scoop, and its headline announcing “Women’s March cutting ties with three original board members accused of anti-Semitism” made it sound like the radical left-wing group was finally taking a stand against anti-Semitism within its leadership, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, New York Times opinion editor Bari Weiss not only complained about the media and her own paper's tendency to pander to what excites the Twittersphere, but she also called out her fellow left-wingers who have been tolerant of anti-Semitism.
