In light of Roseanne Barr’s racist Tuesday morning tweet, ABC cancelled the revival of its 80’s/90’s sitcom Roseanne, starring Roseanne Barr and John Goodman, after only one season despite it having fetched 18 million viewers for its premiere and been renewed for another season.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher was, in his words, doing his "greatest hits" in making incendiary comments about President Donald Trump and his family. The liberal comedian suggested that President Trump likes to "talk dirty" about his daughter Ivanka, derided Donald Trump Jr. as "Douchebag Von F**kface," claimed Trump supporters "hate" blacks, and belittled white Trump voters as "f**king crackers."
The catastrophic fallout from Samantha Bee’s “C” word incident received surprisingly fair and reasonable coverage yesterday from CNN’s New Day. Sadly, that lasted just twenty-four hours, when this morning on New Day, hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman had on comedians Maysoon Zayid and Alise Morales to discuss Bee’s vile comments.
On Thursday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of the controversy over TBS host Samantha Bee calling Ivanka Trump a "feckless c***," and Roseanne Barr comparing former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an ape, CNN.com contributor Dean Obeidallah came to the liberal Bee's defense, lauding her as "an important voice." And, in response to conservative talk radio host Stacy Washington complaining about the double standard of liberal comedians Bill Maher and Joy Behar being tolerated when they attack conservatives, host Don Lemon defended Behar for recently painting Christians as mentally ill.
MRC Director of Media Analysis and NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham stopped by the Thursday edition of the Fox Business Network’s The Evening Edit and tore into claims by MSNBC host Chris Hayes and Chris Matthews that condemned Trump voters as racist and Republicans as golf-swinging, Wall Street Journal-reading, and sports-watching enthusiasts.
On Thursday morning, CNN and MSNBC pounced on their latest opportunity to ignore police violence-related stories that do not fit the narrative that cops mostly target black suspects for shootings and excessive force.

In a report during MSNBC’s 1:00 p.m. ET hour on Thursday, correspondent Morgan Radford interviewed a handful of fringe white supremacist candidates running for office in 2018 midterm races, touting “many of them running on the Republican ticket” and claiming that “President Trump is talking to people” like them.
During Tuesday’s edition of CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon echoed the left-wing talking point that President Trump somehow bears responsibility for Roseanne Barr’s tweet about former Obama official Valerie Jarrett: “We have to stop pretending that this President has nothing to do with it, that he’s not emboldening racists and racism and giving them a platform and making it okay.”
On Wednesday's Hardball on MSNBC, during a panel discussion of President Donald Trump complaining about there being a double standard in ABC punishing Roseanne Barr, with liberals like Keith Olbermann and Jemele Hill being tolerated after incendiary tweets, New York Times contributor Michael Eric Dyson slammed Trump as a "bigot-in-chief" who has made America into a "psychic commode into which he dumps all of his nasty beliefs."
Since canceling ratings-powerhouse Roseanne on Tuesday, ABC and Disney have been under tremendous fire for even hiring Roseanne Barr given her long history of racism and unhinged antics. And in a tweet Wednesday, President Trump called out the company’s double standard of keeping on other such people but who target him. Instead of keeping their head down and taking their lumps, ABC actually complained about the White House pointing out their double standard.
The first half of season 5 of Arrested Development took multiple swipes at President Trump, even though the show takes place before his presidency. Released on Netflix on May 29, the show inserts many of Trump’s statements made on the campaign trail into the plot.
An angry, hard-Left writer for USA Today Sports, Nancy Armour is implying that President Donald Trump used a form of "political terrorism" to pressure the NFL into banning national anthem protests.
