On Monday, Valerie Richardson at the Washington Times noted that no teams with players who continued to kneel during the National Anthem before National Football League games until the end of the regular season qualified for the playoffs. A sports psychologist sees a potentially important lesson in this result, while NBC, which has promised to showcase kneeling players during the Anthem before the beginning of this year's Super Bowl, may be destined for disappointment.
It takes a special talent to spin news which is unquestionably positive into something negative. But Christopher Rugaber and Josh Boak at the Associated Press were up to the task in a Wednesday afternoon report on bonuses, pay raises, and other benefits which now have been showered on well over 2 million American workers since the December passage of federal tax cuts.
In the race to the bottom in the category of the most dishonest, unethical reporting in 2017, Telemundo delivered a real year-end whopper. In a year-in-review piece, NBC’s Spanish-language sister network lambasted President Trump for following through on his long-standing commitment to enforce the immigration laws on the books, calling it "an all-out war against immigrants."
The social media skirmish between President Trump and defenders of NFL protests is back on, and Yahoo! Sports rushed headlong into the fray today to denounce the commander in chief for opposing those pro football players who take a knee during the national anthem.
As the pro-life movement prepares for the 45th annual March for Life, here’s a number the liberal media are unlikely to report: Planned Parenthood has committed 7.6 million abortions since Roe vs. Wade. Over the holiday weekend, America’s largest abortion provider released its 2016 – 2017 annual report. According to that report and former ones (plus numbers supplied by pro-life groups), Planned Parenthood has been responsible for the death of more than 7.6 million babies, from 1973 through 2017.
Netflix's The Ranch, which just released their fourth season, saw the Bennett family struggling to keep their family ranch afloat. Hope came from an unexpected source. Unexpected to see depicted on television, anyway: an oil and gas company. When the company comes in with the promise of a pipeline that will bring money into the ranch, it seems like the answer to their financial problems. Even though they manage to work in some leftist talking points, I was pleasantly surprised to see the oil and gas industry get a fair shake.
Sports Illustrated magazine fawned over Colin Kaepernick after the magazine awarded him its 2017 Muhammad Ali Legacy Award. Eleven pages of the December 11 print magazine were devoted to worship of the out-of-work quarterback. SI writer Michael Rosenberg was positively reverent in his article “Truth Teller," which avoided the word "flag," the very thing Kaepernick was protesting, while hailing him for his "steadfastness in the fight for social justice" and insisting "yes, he has been blackballed" from the NFL.
Are tax cuts anti-God? New York Times religion reporter Laurie Goodstein again celebrated a protest movement by the religious left (while chiding the religious right) in “50 Years Later, New Push to Magnify Plight of Poor.” The text box: “A plan to mount large protests on 40 consecutive days," keyed to the new tax bill that in Goodstein's words, "mainly benefits corporations and the rich."
Here's some radical chic with a violent twist: After apologizing for allegedly normalizing a Nazi sympathizer last week, the New York Times celebrated violent hard-left Antifa (the “anti-fascists” who actually delight in identify-hiding uniforms, violence, and other fascist tactics) on the front of the Styles section Thursday. Don’t expect a similar backlash from the paper’s leftist readership.
NFL broadcasting advertisers are getting nervous about the protests and putting the networks on notice about their discontent. NBC Universal, the parent company of NBC, reports advertisers don't like what's going on with the anthem protests and are threatening to pull the plug on pro football advertising.
This season of American Horror Story: Cult on FX has focused on Trump-like cult leader Kai Anderson (Evan Peters) and his quest for world domination, one killing at a time. In Tuesday night's episode “Charles (Manson) in Charge,” the murder plot involves Planned Parenthood, and of course pro-lifers are hardest hit.
The CW’s Supergirl continues to spiral into liberal idiocy for its third season, and each time it seems to grow more and more idiotic. After insulting a president who doesn’t even exist in their universe, the show has decided to co-opt something else from real life. Say goodbye to any enjoyment from the phrase “lock her up.”
