This week, I did something that USA Today’s executive leadership apparently hadn't done lately: I read the newspaper’s “principles of ethical conduct for newsrooms.” It's pretty highfalutin. The media manifesto of virtue, posted online, applies to all employees “working with any news platform, including newspapers, websites, mobile devices, video, social media channels and live story events.” 



On his MSNBC show, Hardball, Chris Matthews suggests that it would be a "witch hunt . .  . to impeach a President for his sexual misconduct, even if it is illegal."



According to a new draft report from CBS on the culture at 60 Minutes and the network, it wasn’t just former co-host Charlie Rose and ex-CEO Les Moonves who allegedly harassed and abused women. CBS This Morning reporter Vladimir Duthiers explained the leaked findings: “Eight current females tell us they have experienced a toxic workplace or frat house environment including harassment and being made to feel uncomfortable.” 



Beauty pageants could be approaching their biggest cultural watershed moment yet. Not only has Angela Ponce, the trans woman crowned 2018’s Miss Spain, become the first transgender to compete for the Miss Universe crown, she is poised to win the entire competition. She claims the victory would be “a win for human rights,” and a slam to conservatives and Trump.

 


Author Garrard Conley wants the film adaptation of his novel Boy Erased: The Memoir to inspire people to realize that controversial “Gay conversion therapy” is “torture.” The movie Boy Erased has been pushed by the media for Oscar nods, with outlets hoping it might be the next LGBTQ film in line to win major industry nominations and awards, after 2016’s Moonlight and last year’s Call Me By Your Name. The media of course has been running cover for the film and at the same time subtly bashing Christian parents for even hinting that it may be wrong for kids to embrace homosexuality.

 


Is the pope Catholic? Judging by the latest news out of Rome, this week the answer is yes. Predictably, it’s not playing well with his biggest fans in the secular media. Now that Francis has come out against active homosexual priests, media liberals are calling him a “homophobe” and lamenting that he’s not as “cool” as they once thought. Indeed, when lefties note Papa Francisco is “still Catholic,” you know it isn’t meant as a compliment.



It’s old news that Miley Cyrus is both borderline insane and an avowed leftist who uses her devil-may-care schtick to get young people to think promiscuous sex, drugs, and liberal hobby horse issues are cool. The pop music star has just released a new music video for her song “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart,” and well, it’s quintessential Miley.



Despite a combined two and a half hours of available air time, CBS on Wednesday night and Thursday morning allowed just 94 seconds to the latest shocking sexual assault allegations against the network’s former chairman and CEO, Les Moonves. The New York Times on Wednesday offered new details on Moonves’s attempts to cover up forced oral sex against an actress. 



From dying patients, to tantrum-throwing trans teens, the fall finale of NBC's New Amsterdam was full of drama. In Tuesday night’s episode, Dr. Iggy Frome (Tyler Labine) has a transgender patient named Shay, who wants "top surgery"--a procedure that removes a woman's breasts.



Since it’s the Thanksgiving season and we are practically at our wit’s end with the liberal garbage that pop culture constantly feeds us — particularly on mainstream television — it’s nice to take the time and sit back in gratitude for those rare fleeting moments where the showbiz industry shows some sense and appreciation for wholesome, traditional values.

 


Imagine saying “Playboy has lost its moral compass?” Well, based on the evidence, it has. A year ago Playboy Magazine featured it’s first “transgender playmate.” And just this past month it featured DC Universe superhero actor Ezra Miller spreading his legs in fishnet tights and high-heels for the camera. You have to wonder if Hef is spinning in his grave.



If you didn’t get what was significant about Thursday, November 15th, then maybe you just don’t understand that everyday of the calendar year is a solemnity celebrating diversity for diversity’s sake. Thursday’s festivities included Latina (ahem LatinX) actress Eva Longoria trashing President Trump and the white patriarchy for “attacking” her as both a Latino and as a woman.
