On Monday's Amanpour and Company on PBS, host Christiane Amanpour gave liberal actress Jane Fonda a forum to promote her alarmist views on global warming, picking up on the veteran political activist's recent push to hold a weekly protest outside the U.S. Capitol on the issue. The liberal activist railed against the fossil fuel industry, fearmongered about there allegedly being only a decade left in which to cut carbon dioxide emissions, and complained that American "individualism" is a problem.
On Tuesday afternoon's MSNBC Live, host Katy Tur surprisingly pressed Bernie Sanders's campaign manager from the right several times as she discussed economic policy with Faiz Shakir. As she brought up arguments that the candidate's plans to tax businesses and redistribute income would drive businesses to move to other countries, the MSNBC host either seemed like she's either finally decided to insert both sides of the issues into her show, or perhaps she's just secretly cheering for Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden because they are perceived as more electable that Sanders.
On Friday's Real Time show, liberal comedian Bill Maher and his panel of mostly liberals promoted global warming alarmism with Commentary magazine's Noah Rothman as the only guest who argued against climate hysteria from a right-leaning point of view. Maher declared that climate change "deniers" who have children are "lousy parents" for not wanting to adopt left-wing proposals to react to climate change, and at one point, while complaining about Republicans "getting away with murder," was clearly also hinting at "murder" literally as he emphasized the word.
Over the past couple of days, morning shows on both CNN and MSNBC have hyped alarmist predictions made by a United Nations panel about how global warming will impact the world over the next 100 years. On CNN's New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota asked climate correspondent Bill Weir, "How do you get out of bed in the morning?" after he finished detailing the "dire" predictions.
The same networks that banded together to bully pro-life states earlier this year after they passed sweeping legislation to protect the life of unborn children, spent Wednesday evening whining about President Trump threatening to revoke California’s self-prescribed emissions standards in favor of a national standard.
On Thursday afternoon, MSNBC host Katy Tur devoted a segment of her show to a discussion of passing a federal law to mandate that employees be given paid parental leave in which only left-leaning guests participated in the discussion. Opponents who might argue that some employers would have difficulty doing without employees for several months were not included in the discussion as Tur hinted she only invited members of Congress who were trying to pass a federal law on the matter.
In the zany world of Hollywood A-listers, it’s hard to find a dozen people who can entertain a rational thought about politics, and much harder to find a few committed conservatives. Take a look at the industry's most successful and well-adjusted faces, like Scarlett Johansson, for example. The best L.A’s got to offer thinks Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren is the best choice for our nation, telling showbiz journos that she’s a “thoughtful,” and “realistic” candidate.
Democratic presidential candidate and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D-NY) proclaimed his support for the “working people” of America, and unveiled his “Workers’ Bill of Rights” July 23. On July 24, the Fox Business Network's Bulls & Bears host David Asman consulted former Small Business Administrator Hector Barreto and others to find out how small businesses would fare under what Asman called de Blasio’s “socialist push against businesses.”
Far-left candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-MA) latest plan to restructure the economy and regulate Wall Street came with a denouncement of private equity companies as “vampires.” MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle boosted Warren’s so-called “economic patriotism” plan on July 18, but ignored that creepy insult. Nor did they discuss whether private equity firms are actually villains or being misrepresented by Warren. MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle was practically grinning as she announced that Warren, whom she called “the candidate with a plan for everything,” was “out with another one, this time aimed at a very familiar target: Wall Street.”
Just as online retailer Amazon hoped to entice millions of its Prime members to spend on Prime Day, CNN launched an attack on “fast, free shipping” for not being environmentally friendly. Senior economics writer Lydia DePillis complained on July 15, that fast shipping, like Amazon’s new Prime Free One-Day option, has a “hidden cost” to the environment. She criticized “America’s addiction to absurdly fast shipping” for pushing retailers to do a “careful dance” to minimize environmental impact without turning off potential buyers.
This wasn’t an episode of Fear Factor or The Amazing Race. It was The Washington Post that hyped maggots as a solution to fears of a future global food crisis. Reporter Christopher Ingraham wrote about Symton BSF — a company cultivating the larvae of black soldier flies — as food for animals. But the July 3 Post story didn’t stop with the idea of breeding maggots to turn into animal food. It had food for people in mind too, and even accepted someone’s claim that dried larvae taste like “Fritos.” Gross.
CNBC editor-at-large John Harwood didn’t just interview 2020 Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke about the economy July 5. He literally asked questions while eating Mexican food with the candidate. That jovial setting was perfect for the easy and friendly interview Harwood conducted. Harwood often lets his liberal views show on CNBC. CNBC.com described the interview as O’Rourke “filling in the blanks” on his economic plans which included raising taxes.
