On Friday's MSNBC Live, as host Ali Velshi brought aboard Black Lives Matter leader Deray McKesson to discuss the controversial Nike ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, the MSNBC host actually hit his liberal guest from the left as he wondered if Nike was really doing enough to promote Kaepernick's political agenda.
TBS's Wrecked continued the longstanding tradition, lampooning rich, white men on Tuesday’s episode, “Six Feet,” as “monsters,” misogynists and sexual harassers who look down disdainfully on the poor and treat them horribly. Oh, and they make people hunt and kill each other for sport, too. Because, of course.
NBA star Lebron James would never sit across from President Trump, but he would sit down with “Barack.” In an interview on CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon asked the basketball player what he would say to the current President if he were sitting in the room. James claimed that it would never happen.
An obviously agenda-driven report on extreme poverty from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights accuses the U.S. under the Trump administration of, in the UN group's words, "becoming a champion of inequality." It also claims that, because of its policies, "the American dream is rapidly becoming the American illusion." As one might expect, many the press have eagerly relayed the UN group's Trump-blaming findings, even though the statistics undergirding the UN group's efforts predate Donald Trump's inauguration.
Venezuela's descent under Bolivarian socialist President and de facto dictator Nicolas Maduro has achieved yet another grim milestone. This time it's the return of polio, on top of other previously eradicated diseases including diphtheria, tuberculosis, measles, and malaria. The return of polio has caught the attention of some in the international press in the past few days, but only one of over a dozen related English stories found in early Monday afternoon Eastern Time Google News searches identified the nation or its leader as socialist. Also as of Monday afternoon, there was no coverage at major U.S. news outlets.
Wednesday, CNN presented yet another story about Venezuela's implosion which did a fine job of portraying that country's human misery, this time in the oil industry. Unfortunately, it was yet another example of a story failing to mention its socialist form of government or even its leader, President Nicolas Maduro. Though such omissions have long been routine in establishment press reports, reporter Stefano Pozzebon's were particularly galling, given that the governments of Maduro and especially Hugo Chavez, his Bolivarian socialist predecessor, are entirely responsible for Venezuela's oil collapse.
On Wednesday's CBS Evening News, in a report on Louisiana's budget battle which the piece suggested could "kill people" with cuts to Medicaid, correspondent David Begnaud seemed to think it was only important to identify the party affiliation of the Republican state legislators involved, even though the governor whom he also spoke with, John Bel Edwards, is a Democrat.
Even with the stock market reaching new record highs, the unemployment rate at an historic low, and economic growth on the rise, NBC News wanted viewers to know that “homelessness is surging” in certain parts of the country and “affecting regular working families.” That was the focus of correspondent Jacob Soboroff in a report for Thursday’s Megyn Kelly Today.
This year, TV writers made no effort to conceal their liberal biases. Show plotlines were riddled with left-leaning political views, ranging from attempts to destigmatize abortion and euthanasia to caricaturizing Republicans as poor-hating racists. Here are 10 of the most outrageously liberal TV scenes from the year guaranteed to make your blood boil:
ABC’s American Housewife revisited their touching storyline where main character Katie's (Katy Mixon) friend Doris (Ali Wong) was angry over being pregnant with her fourth “creature,” whom she compared to parasitic lice. In Wednesday's episode, "Blue Christmas," Doris is in the hospital ready to give birth on Christmas Day - which also makes her angry and causes her to use new terms of endearment for her baby such as, “this thing” and “son-of-a-bitch.” Can't you just feel the Christmas spirit already?
The Associated Press has suddenly discovered that homelessness is a serious problem in the nation's three West Coast states of California, Oregon, and Washington, and that the problem merits national attention. How convenient — and how tardy.
On Friday's News One Now on TV One, substitute host Michelle Bernard presided over a panel in which one guest asserted that the push to repeal ObamaCare by Donald Trump supporters is fueled by a desire for "eugenics" against minorities to bolster "white supremacy." She further claimed that there was a desire to "eliminate" and "annihilate" minorities. Neither host Bernard nor even the token Republican on the panel voiced any disagreement with her incendiary claims.
