Viewers tuning in to New Amsterdam to learn who died in the terrible ambulance accident from the spring finale will be shocked by the answers in the series premiere. What won’t shock them was that NBC’s medical drama was packed tighter with liberal views than the hospital’s emergency room was filled with patients. No change there from last season.
Mixed-ish premiered on ABC Tuesday and it is about the childhood of Rainbow "Bow" Johnson, the mother in the hit television show Black-ish played by Tracee Ellis Ross. In what has become typical from ABC, the show features themes such as communistic sympathy, anti-conservative and anti-capitalism bias.
All Rise just aired its pilot episode on CBS Monday night and the new legal drama is chock full of wokeness.
Liberal producer Chuck Lorre’s sitcom Bob Hearts Abishola might be new, but its ending certainly was not. Monday night’s pilot episode for the new CBS show about a Nigerian immigrant nurse (Abishola, played by Folake Olowofoyeku) and her white patient (Bob, played by Billy Gardell), ended with a signature Lorre vanity card that was a clear shot at President Trump and his campaign’s red MAGA hats. The card simply showed an image of a yellow IMAG (Immigrants Make America Great) hat, the same one Lorre wore to promote his new show in August.
As exposed by Breitbart, it appears another editor at The New York Times has a history of making anti-Semitic and anti-white tweets. What’s more, this same editor worked on the Times’ infamous 1619 project, which “reframes” America under the lens of racism and slavery. This comes after several other high-level employees at the paper were found to have made racist remarks on their social media accounts.
The Chairman and CEO of the Television Academy calls it the “platinum age of television.” Frank Scherma spoke about how connected television viewing makes friends and family as it is a shared experience. Mostly, though, these awards shows prove it is the platinum age of bloated egos and groupthink.
Shane Gillis’ immediate firing from Saturday Night Live over one year-old insensitive Chinese jokes has generated serious discussion about how our society should deal with being offended by entertainers and other members of the media. Granted there’s a whole swarm people putting out credible arguments about how Shane was offensive, but fellow comedians see his decisive termination as a symptom of something worse: a culture that seeks to destroy what it disagrees with, which signals trouble for comedy, and ultimately free speech at large.
Comedian Chelsea Handler loves being browbeaten about her white privilege by woke millennial college students, apparently. On The View Wednesday, she admitted that in her new Netflix documentary about white privilege, she visited a liberal college campus where black students “took her to task” her about her own privilege. Handler said she even took sexual harassment and racial sensitivity classes, which “everyone” should be taking, she said.
Former SNL comedian Norm MacDonald knows a thing or two about being fired by NBC’s sketch comedy show for some controversial comedy. It’s why the legendary stand-up comic has offered support for recently-hired-then-fired comedian Shane Gillis, the young man who was axed by SNL after video surfaced of him making fun of Chinese people.
Media disdain for model citizen Tim Tebow is so ridiculous that on Monday Carron J. Phillips, of The Shadow League blog, compares him to law-breaking actress Felicity Huffman. She got 14 days in jail, a $30,000 fine and community service for conspiracy to fix her daughter's SAT scores. Tebow, who angered the Left by going on ESPN Friday to say he opposes pay for college athletes, is "convicted" with Huffman, by Phillips, for the high crime of "white privilege."
In one of the fastest Twitter takedowns in recent memory, Saturday Night Live fired comedian Shane Gillis only four days after hiring him due to the complaints of internet users who dug up video of the comedian making insensitive comments, particularly about Chinese people.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show Saturday morning, MSNBC contributor Anand Giridharadas says that Joe Biden is a subtle racist who "has to drop out." He focused on Biden's statement from this past week's debate in which he suggested that black parents lack parenting skills.
