The Annual GLAAD Media Awards Nominations recently hit the internet rounds, rewarding all things gay in entertainment and journalism. Of course all the gayest staples were present in terms of movies and TV shows. Gay teen dramedy Love, Simon rounded out the list for “Outstanding Movies,” while Will & Grace, Modern Family, and Dear White People were listed as contenders for the TV nod. My money’s on Will & Grace for it’s very flam rendition of our 16th president, “Gaybraham Lincoln” and his “Lincoln log.” Really.
There’s no question that, at least until Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez boogied out of the Bronx, Speaker of The House and badass sunglasses aficionado has been a patron saint to radical lefties everywhere, but do we really have to double down on her legendary status by officially declaring her as a pop culture icon? Sadly yes. VH1 just announced that they will be honoring the democratic leader as an official Trailblazer on March 8th, because there’s nothing more validating for a proponent of open borders and infanticide than a Hollywood blessing complete with a kitschy, faux-gilded piece of plastic.
On Thursday, the CBS Evening News was the first to break the broadcast network blackout surrounding Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s steadfast support for infanticide, aka killing newborn babies. Unfortunately, CBS downplayed the controversy by suggesting it was overblown by ‘conservatives pounc[ing]’ on the Governor. On top of that, CBS also deceptively edited video of Northam’s controversial comments to make them seem less radical.
In contrast to the broadcast networks, CNN, and MSNBC ignoring radical pro-abortion comments by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D), a look at the Fox News Channel programs in that span (The Story, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Hannity, The Ingraham Angle, and Fox News @ Night) yielded 67 minutes and 23 seconds of coverage on not only Northam’s comments, unsuccessful attempts by Virginia Democrats to pass a late-term abortion bill, and how New York was able to push through such a law last week.
It took a “fierce conservative backlash” for the Washington Post to concern itself with Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam’s attitude toward a radical late-term abortion bill. The bill would roll-back restrictions on abortion in a state that does allow third-trimester abortion when a woman’s life is at risk as certified by three doctors.
It’s almost cliché in pro-life circles that on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade for coming close to 50 years, hundreds of thousands of people march for life, and almost no one in the media can see them. Like Pro-Life Ninjas, they move in and out of the nation’s capitol undetected … until a teenager with a “Make America Great Again” hat was faced with a reality of political life today, the professional protestor causing agitation while fellow activists filmed attempts to cause a media moment. And it worked, at least at first, as many rushed to judgment.
Showtime's Shameless, on Sunday night's episode titled "BOOOOOOOOOOOONE!," delved into the fraught language surrounding abortion. In the prior episode Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy) and his girlfriend Ingrid (Katey Sagal) used vitro fertilization to start a family.
When Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg talks about content now, he talks a lot about restricting speech. Zuckerberg wrote an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal to explain the platform’s nebulous position on free speech.
Editors note: This article has been corrected. Originally, it falsely claimed Sarah Beattie was a writer for SNL. Subsequently we discovered that was not the case and we apologize.
On Monday, actress and comedian Sarah Beattie posted a crude Twitter status offering lewd sex acts for anyone willing to harm Nicolas Sandmann, the Catholic teen accused of racism for merely standing in front of a triggered native American man.
Despite what was a much delayed but important avalanche of headlines about the group’s anti-Semitism, Saturday’s Women’s March still received nearly 15 times the broadcast network newscast coverage of the 47th annual March for Life that was held Friday. Between Wednesday morning and Saturday evening, the Women’s March fetched 14 minutes and 26 seconds of coverage on the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning and evening newscasts. This stood in stark contrast to just 58 seconds for the March for Life.
This year’s March for Life is brandishing a new tagline that is sure to rile up members of the liberal establishment. The March’s theme will be “Unique from Day One: Pro-Life is Pro-Science,” a tagline that almost seems calculated to trigger liberals who say they “f*cking’ love science! In response, Washington Post religious writer Julie Zausmer teed up her best, “Nuh uh, that’s not science!” rebuttal, and backed it up with more of the same tired pro-choice arguments.
We already know that the liberal mainstream media will give the Women's March more press than the March for Life, but it’s not merely the news media pushing the pro-abortion agenda; they've gotten plenty of help from entertainment television in the past year.
