The New York Times is apologizing for offending Latinos on Monday. The headline was "Readers Call a Travel Story on Los Angeles Dismissive of Latino Culture. They Have a Point." Lynda Richardson and Steve Reddicliffe, editors on the paper's Travel desk, wrote contritely: "Readers took issue with the reference to a historic street in Downtown Los Angeles that sells Jesus statuettes and piñatas as the source of 'all useless items in the world.' We now see how it came across as offensive."
During his show on Tuesday night, CBS host Stephen Colbert took it upon himself to sing Democratic Congressional Candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s praises. And he topped it all off by claiming Jesus was a socialist. Ocasio-Cortez is a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, and darling of the Democratic Party. It’s no wonder Colbert has been quick to support her, despite her being endorsed by the New York City chapter of the radical left-wing group, the Democratic Socialists of America.
On Sunday evening, the NBC Nightly News ran a full report hyping a couple of cases in which pharmacists refused to fill a prescription -- one for an abortion and one for transgender hormone treatment. Host Kate Snow and correspondent Blake McCoy ended up fretting that "social conservatives" had pushed to expand state laws that allow pharmacists to refuse certain sales for reasons of morality.
Season Two of Netflix’s original hit show GLOW premiered last Friday with ten episodes to binge on, and the season was thankfully tamer compared to season one. But that’s not saying much considering how season one was one big “f--- you to the Republican party,” and was filled with rampant sex, foul language, abortion and more.
Women’s magazines aren’t just for fashion and makeup anymore. No. They’re also for abortion. On Monday, President Trump announced his pick for new Supreme Court justice: federal judge Brett Kavanaugh. Writers for women’s magazines from Glamour to Teen Vogue immediately produced stories warning about what the nominee could to do to “your abortion rights.”
One of the left’s biggest weapons is identity politics, and the media will continually ignore facts to keep this weapon functional. This is especially true regarding Christians, whom the media label as bigots and oppressors. They can never be seen as victims and so the media report accordingly.
If it isn’t obvious by now, AMC’s Preacher isn’t a fan of God, Jesus, Christianity, or anything remotely resembling decency. So it comes as no surprise that the show lets out how it feels about the Creator of the universe - verbally and physically. In another less-than-shocking twist, it requires a censor just to talk about.
Late Saturday night Joshua Topolsky, Co-Founder of Vox Media, tweeted a hideous statement directed at prominent Jewish, conservative pundit, Ben Shapiro. The since-deleted tweet read, ”Ben Shapiro is the Jew who helps other Jews onto the train.” Topolsky has not apologized, and claimed to have deleted the tweet because “a mob of right wing babies were flooding my mentions.” Topolsky also said he received death threats over the tweet.
During Friday’s edition of HBO's Real Time, panelist and leftist documentary maker Michael Moore reiterated a point frequently made by host Bill Maher that “fascism is at the doorstep” and issued a call-to-action: “The vast majority believe in women’s rights, environmental stuff, don’t put people in jail for using drugs. All of that stuff, the majority are with us. We are the majority. Why don’t we start acting like we’re the majority?” Maher seemed pessimistic about America’s future, pointing out that “now, you can’t get back the Court.
On Thursday's New Day, liberal CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin continued freaking out over Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement as he not only renewed his predictions of Roe V. Wade being overturned, but he also forecast that religious conservatives who own businesses would bar gays from patronizing their restaurants and hotels. Liberal CNN co-host John Avlon left open the possibility that a "dystopian Handmaid's Tale type America" might happen. The two also badgered former Donald Trump advisor Steve Cheung as he resisted making predictions about future court cases, with Avlon complaining that "You're adding very little value to the conversation with that kind of pablum.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's Across America with Carol Costello on HLN, liberal comedian and CNN.com contributor Dean Obeidallah ranted against the views of conservatives on immigration, and suggested that those who support enforcing the law against illegal border crossings are not "real Americans," as he debated Amy Kremer of Women for Trump. He further demonized Donald Trump supporters as people that "the bulk of Americans have nothing in common with those people," and hyped a study suggesting that 18 Americans -- out of a total of 14,000 homicides -- were killed by white supremacists in 2017.
We’ve often stated that immigration is the beating heart of Univision’s policy agenda, but the network has also taken to championing other liberal policy items. As its coverage of the Supreme Court’s ruling in NIFLA v. Becerra proves, abortion is at the top of that list.
